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.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
