Fusion May 2010

Hello America, and Happy May Day! That's right. May 1, also known as May Day, is a time to leisurely bask in the sun and take a welcomed rest as children run 'round the May Pole in a celebration of solidarity among working men and women, unified in the goal of happiness and prosperity for all people. NOT! I can't believe that this bizarre May Day myth still gets peddled throughout so much of the world. 

The truth is, instead of "May Day," we should be calling it "Mayday" after the internationally recognized distress call that means, "come help me!" Yup, May Day is inextricably linked to Communism. You know, the little system still favored by our pals over in China, and there's a lot looming over our heads that could have us shouting Mayday! if we don't wake up soon. If you really want to celebrate May 1, start by taking notice of what's happening overseas and what it could mean to life right here in the good ol' U.S. of A.

First, a little history: May Day is also known as International Workers Day. This day is the socialist and communist recognition of the erosion of individual rights, the exaltation of the good of "the state" being far and above that of the citizen, and a rejection of a little idea called Capitalism. May Day is a Communist favorite usually associated with the rise of the Communist Party of China (CCP) led by Mao Zedong (a.k.a. Chairman Mao).

In October 1949, Mao's Communists gained control of most of Mainland China, and they established the People's Republic of China as a Socialist State headed by a "Democratic Dictatorship" with their CCP as the only legal political party. In the years that followed, not too many of Mao's Chinese celebrated May Day due to the fact that they were all starving to death (famine can be such a party pooper). But here's the thing—sure, the old drab uniforms and Little Red Books of Mao and his pals have been replaced with the tailor-made suits and Wall Street Journals of today's Chinese Communist elite, but don't be fooled. Almost 61 years later, China is still closer to Mao than now.

Last year, China held a huge parade complete with tanks and missiles and rockets (oh my!), and we all heard about the dramatically dictatorial approach they took to their happy little "don't miss a step or you'll never be heard from again" opening to the Beijing Olympics. And their human rights record, well, let's just say it makes Iran seem not so horrible. Don't believe the hype—China is still mired in the old ways, but staying red has put them in the black. They've overtaken our role in the manufacturing sector, and while they try to internationalize their own Yuan currency, they're trying to discredit our own financial systems. China holds over $1 trillion of our debt—they're our biggest creditor—so what they do impacts America in a huge way.

Now the rest of the world is looking to China to see how they maintain such a robust economy. The answer to that is simple—you can do unbelievable things when you strip individuals of their rights and use Communist methods to control the marketplace and the people whose labor fuels it. By contrast, the American free market system and the Capitalist ideal has always been the envy of the planet because it achieves success not at the expense of freedom, but because of it. Sure, we took a hit and the current administration isn't exactly getting out of the way so the American entrepreneurial spirit can get back to work, but America can and will return to the front of the line. The Obama/Marxist model of redistributing wealth just won't work because it can't, and it never has.

It's time to wake up and realize that China's system is not the answer. Yes, they could use their methods to take the place as the world's lone superpower, but that would have to mean that Americans would throw up their hands, concede defeat, and stop applying the common sense and uncommon courage to solve not just our problems, but those facing so many around the world. Now does that sound like us? I don't think so either.

So enjoy your May 1, but never mind the May Day. Instead, try to get in the mindset of Americans back in 1958 who decided that the first of May did deserve recognition — that's why they declared it Loyalty Day. Amen to that.

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"
