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.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
