FACT CHECK THIS: If you think Big Tech is out of control now, just wait

Big Stock

We've heard a lot of talk lately about the goals of Big Tech and the mainstream media. The Hunter Biden laptop story is a prime example. The majority of the media refused to report on it, and any outlet that actually reported on it — like the New York Post — was shut down by both Facebook and Twitter.

I am under attack daily. I have employees who have to devote almost their entire workday responding to and appealing efforts by social media to censor our posts. Case in point, Facebook tried to shut down our story that Joe Biden's ancestors were slave owners.

They used a fact-check to insist our story was false based on the actual fact Joe Biden's great grandfather didn't own slaves and that none of his ancestors fought for the Confederacy. Well guess what? We never said any of that!

What we did say was that Biden's great great great grandfather owned slaves and that they were passed down to his great great grandfather. We provided evidence that this was true, including federal and local documents from the time. One of the most respected genealogy firms in the country compiled the report. And we never said any of Biden's family fought for the Confederacy.

It's clear the fact-checkers didn't listen to what I actually said, nor did they read either the article from my website or the genealogy report. Instead, they labeled our story false based on the headline they saw and claims that other websites had made. This is fact-checking?

They eventually lifted their judgement after we pointed this out. They even made the following correction to the fact-check, verifying that our reporting was true:

Update: There are documents supporting the claim that one of Biden's 16 great-great-great-grandfathers, who was born in 1776 on the paternal side of his family tree, owned slaves, and one of those slaves was inherited by a great-great-grandfather when he was a child. Details can be found below.

I'm lucky enough to have staff who can monitor these things and respond as they happen, but how many smaller sites just don't have such resources? How many true stories are getting shut down and censored and nothing is ever being done about it? How much legitimate information out there have we missed due to this flawed fact-checking system?

It's not you're innocent until proven guilty. They've flipped the standard.

The way this game works is the fact-checkers declare guilt, the information is shut down, and the burden is on you to prove your innocence — if you can. It's not you're innocent until proven guilty. They've flipped the standard.

There are multiple "fact-checkers" out there these days, and both Silicon Valley and the mainstream media run to them to be judge, jury and executioner on what they deem "false information." One of them is NewsGuard, which recently listed 40 Facebook pages as "super-spreaders" of election misinformation.

And wouldn't you know, of course I'm on the list. This is the example they provided:

Oct. 10, 2020, post with a link to an article on Beck's website falsely claiming that "members of the Obama Administration and State Department wrote the playbook for Color Revolution in the streets" and that the Democrats' plan to overthrow the government "culminates on November 3rd."

In essence, this is exactly like the Joe Biden ancestor slave holder fact-check. They read a headline, cherry-pick a line or two they don't like — without fully reading nor listening to what was actually said — and then declare the whole thing false.

Literally everything that was said in that show was taken directly from members of the Obama Administration, Democrats and other people on both the left and right — in their own words. I then provided commentary on what all this could mean. Since when is pointing out facts — facts that are clearly sourced — and discussing what it all could mean now out of bounds? How is it "misinformation" to reveal what someone has said or done?

If that's the standard, how is it possible to warn anyone about anything? My job — from the very beginning — has been to point out the warning signs and connect the dots so that we can all be prepared for every possible outcome. My audience knows this. It's how you all knew the 2008 financial crisis was coming. It's how you knew the word "Caliphate" long before ISIS.

Let's look at NewsGuard's little example for a second. Here is their first quote they pulled out as "false":

Members of the Obama Administration and State Department wrote the playbook for Color Revolution in the streets.

Now again, the "fact-checkers" never said how this is false... the burden is on you to prove your innocence. But here's the problem... I've already done that! All you have to do is actually watch the show. This isn't my claim. Obama's Ambassador to Russia — Michael McFaul — literally wrote an academic paper on Color Revolutions and the steps needed to be successful. He called them the 7 Pillars.

In McFaul's own words (he wasn't your typical diplomat), this is what he said his specialty was:

Most of the specialists on Russia are diplomats, specialists in security, arms control. Or Russian culture. I'm neither. I can't quote Pushkin by heart. I'M AN EXPERT ON DEMOCRACY, ANTI-DICTATORIAL MOVEMENTS, REVOLUTIONS.

Kind of an odd thing to admit as an Ambassador in Eastern Europe while Color Revolutions were breaking out all over the world.

Again. All of this is sourced in detail. They wrote and said these things, not me.

In the show, if they would have watched it, they would have seen me go through each of the Color Revolution pillars. I showed you how all of that was happening. In very particular, the pillars reference organized oppositions ready to hit the streets during an election. This goes to the fact-checkers' second "false" claim that all of this "culminates on November 3rd."

All I'm doing is pointing out what they have said, what they have planned for, and the rules that they have played by in the past.

What have they planned for? I've been talking about their little wargame based on the report written by the Transition Integrity Project for weeks. Even the Washington Post has written about this for crying out loud. The wargame specifically mentions using street activists — that they admit will probably turn violent — on November 3rd.

The group that did the event — Fight Back Table — made it clear what would happen:

Occupy sh*t, hold space, and shut things down, not just on Election Day but for weeks.

I did not say these things... they did!

There are multiple left-wing groups organizing for street protests on November 3rd. Obama's Organizing For Action is heavily involved with a group called Indivisible who is right now planning over 200 protests on election day all across the country.

Groups like the Action Network have been helping. They were inspired by Occupy Wall Street. Occupy Wall Street was inspired by the Arab Spring. Keep that in mind as the founder of the Action Network recently said this:

In some ways, we've just been road testing everything for two years, building up to this moment.

Again, I sound like a broken record here, but... I did not say these things. THEY DID!

I hope none of this happens, but we need to know these things so we're not caught off guard.

These are the rules they play by. Color Revolution is their specialty. It's their inspiration. Now they're organizing for election day. I said during my show that I hope none of this happens, but we need to know these things so we're not caught off guard if it does. It's the same reason I was warning about Osama Bin Laden before 9/11, the same reason I warned about the financial crisis before 2008, and the same reason I warned about the Caliphate before ISIS. I hoped none of them would happen but I wanted everyone to be prepared if it did.

If Big Tech has its way, if the "fact-checkers" can label things like this as "fake news" or "misleading," if we can't take people's own actions, words and plans at face value, inform about it and provide commentary on what people might need to be prepared for... we're screwed.

I have probably the most transparent show in the country. I provide all documentation for everything I do. I use the source material in every show. It's all right there. All the fact-checkers have to do is simply look at it.

This is what we're up against and it's only going to get worse. If Joe Biden wins on Tuesday, they're going to turn the dial up until we all melt.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
