EXPLAINED: No, Thomas Jefferson did NOT support slavery

Monticello has gone full WOKE. According to the New York Post, visitors to Thomas Jefferson's former home now learn more about the ‘horrors of slavery’ than the Founding Father himself. In fact, the monument’s gift shop apparently sells several books written by Critical Race Theorists and just ONE Jefferson biography. But if the far-left successfully can change U.S. history — like they’ve been trying SO hard to do — we’ll never survive as a nation, Glenn says. We MUST preserve our history, so in this clip, Glenn clears the third president's name. Listen for the FACTS that prove Thomas Jefferson did NOT support slavery…

VOICE: We are five days away, from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

VOICE: And Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices. We are going to have to change our conversation. We're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to have to move into a different place.

GLENN: Wow. How alarming is that, when we first heard it. We didn't know exactly what she meant. Other than, transformation. Wait. I don't want to change our history.

But look at how well-coordinated everything has done. They did change our history. They're still changing our history. They're still changing our traditions.

It's remarkable how well-planned this was. Well, according to the New York Post, grievance has become the predominant theme at Monticello. They say from the ticket booth to the visitor's center, which is decorated with contemporary painting of Jefferson's weeping slaves, to its final gift shop display, it's no longer telling the story of Thomas Jefferson. In addition to the ticket booth, and the gift shop, which features works by Critical Race theorist, Ibram X. Kendi and Ta-Nehisi Coates. But only one biography about Jefferson himself. The estate reportedly discusses the Native Americans who lived on the land before Jefferson purchased it. It also offers an in-depth look at Sally Hemings, Jefferson's mistress.

We -- we do not know if Sally Hemings was a mistress or not. There was a book that came out in the '90s, that said it was true. It was retracted within two weeks. But nobody ever covered that.

There is evidence in newspaper coverage at the time. As a smear on Thomas Jefferson. That his brother was making it with Sally Hemings. So any DNA that says, Jefferson. Yeah, it might be Tom. But it might be his brother. And that's what they were saying at the time. My God. We are not going to survive unless we preserve our history.

Jefferson's mistress, who allegedly bore him six children. Makes repeated reference to the enslaved people who once lived and worked at Monticello, represents a nuanced version of Jefferson and focuses little on his accomplishments.

Jeffrey Tucker, the founder of the Libertarian Brownstone Institute, recently took a group of tour, to Monticello, noted a surly and dismissive tone from his tour guide. Someone asked if Jefferson had built a machine in the house. And the guide said, no. He never really built anything. He was a tinkerer. He was a tinkerer? Are you kidding me?

I mean, he designed Monticello. That's his design. The clock is his design. Oh, my gosh. I can't -- I can't take it. He also, you know, founded the university of Virginia. And the Declaration of Independence. However -- however, in a video posted on the Monticello Facebook page, tour guide Kyle Chattington -- Chattelton, oh, my gosh. Is that a pretentious name?

Hi, yes. I'm Kyle Chattelton, III. He claims, how is it that Jefferson wrote that all men are created equal, and yet also held people as slaves?

It's one of the most common questions that visitors ask. I would like to know their answer. Stu, do you know the answer?

STU: I don't think that I do, Glenn. I don't think that I do.
(laughter)

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh. Just -- if you don't know the answer, would you Google first draft of the Declaration of Independence?

STU: First draft of the declaration --

GLENN: It is in his own handwriting. And he capitalizes a couple of words.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: He was vehemently opposed to slavery. He tried his whole life to stop it.

Why -- why did he write all men are created equal and he didn't realize slaves were men?

On the third page of the Declaration of Independence, that he wrote, and two states stopped, it says, the king is having men sold on the open market.

Hello.

STU: But the Christian king, of Great Britain, was -- is, by the way, capitalized in there. To show everybody. In a mocking tone. That he wasn't acting all that Christian. When he was saying, he wanted people to be owned. And used for the purposes of the crown. I mean, you know, this is in the -- of course, the -- the section, in which they're just lighting up Great Britain, and the king. And saying, hey. These are all the terrible things he they have done. And why we have to do this. Why we have to declare independence in the first place. Here's our list of grievances.

The longest one, it's the most prominent one.

GLENN: It's half a page.

STU: It's half a page. It goes on and on and on and on. Just complaining about slavery. How bad it is. And how it should stop immediately.

GLENN: And how many times the -- and how many times the king had thwarted them.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: In trying to stop it. That's why Thomas Jefferson had slaves. But was against slavery. It's not because he was an American sphinx, that we just can't figure out.

No. He fought in Virginia, to change the laws. He could not sell his slaves, or release them upon his death. Because he was in debt.

And you couldn't free slaves, if you were in debt. And he was millions in debt, on his death. So he -- the record is clear! Oh, my gosh.

I can't -- oh.

STU: You haven't even inherited -- this is another important point. This was inherited.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But he was making wild, passionate love to Sally Hemings. Or his brother was.

Here's a story, it comes out of Breitbart. Woke churches across the country have celebrated abortion, and even gone as far as labeling the pro-life movement, a quote, demonic agenda.

Now, that's quite a statement. We now have good being called evil. And evil being called good. By churches. Now, these are liberal churches.

But the churches are now calling the lack of abortions, forced childbirth. Hmm. Hmm.

Okay. Okay. So wait. Forced childbirth. So then you would admit, that it is a child. Right?

I'm just trying to figure out, how you're -- another sign of the times. Ted Cruz went on a rampage yesterday, talking about Clarence Thomas, and what's happening to Clarence Thomas and his wife. There is a -- a photo, that has been on social media. Of a protester sign that reads, Ginni Thomas is a 21st century slave owner. Ginni, who happens to be a friend of mine, is the wife of Clarence Thomas. You are not only denigrating her, by calling her a slave owner, you are also saying, that Clarence Thomas, one of the most clear-minded judges, we have had, is -- is somehow enslaved by this white woman?

I mean, I thought it was bad, when they said that he was an Uncle Tom for marrying a white woman. Now he's a slave being held in slavery by his wife. This is despicable.

The -- the Justice Department is doing nothing -- nothing to stop it. They'll label you a terrorist, but they'll do nothing to the people who are actually offering a bounty if you will disclose where any of these conservative justices are.

White House isn't say anything about it. Justice Department is doing nothing about it.

Can you imagine -- can you imagine -- I don't even need to finish that sentence. Let me switch to something else here.

Something that makes you happy. Something that makes me happy. Starbucks has dropped its recently introduced chicken maple butter and egg sandwich from its menu. Because people complain of experiencing symptoms of illness, including diarrhea after consuming the product. And it's -- it's -- it's -- apparently, it's symptoms that customers and baristas claim to have experienced after eating the sandwich, included diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain. The worst diarrhea of my life. I've been living in my bathroom for two days now, one user complained on TikTok. Another user said that they contracted campylobacter, I guess? An infection that can be contracted after eating raw poultry items.

They -- they said, the Seattle-based Starbucks -- and I wish them all the best. They said, you know, the sandwich, in retrospect, just doesn't live up to our high quality standards. No? No? Uh-uh. No. Uh-uh.

I don't think your high quality standards are quite so high, or as high as you think they are, if, you know, putting people into the toilet for two days is, you know, maybe we should pull this sandwich. I'm just saying. I'm just saying.

But makes me want to run out and get one. And that makes me so happy.

For the giant Seattle-based corporation. Starbucks. All my best. Back in just a second.

Deborah wrote in about her experience with Relief Factor. She said, my wonderful husband ordered Relief Factor for me. When I was feeling pretty bad. I have rheumatoid arthritis. And Relief Factor helps me tremendously. I noticed around the second week, things began to get better. I have to admit, I was skeptical before. Now I swear by it. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you. All the best, Deborah. Deborah, thank you for writing in and giving Relief Factor a try. Sounds like you had the same experience I had. I didn't think it would work either. Try their three-week Quick Start. Yes. It will cost you 19.95. But if it's not working for you in three weeks, stop. Because it probably will not work for you. 70 percent of the people who try the three-week Quick Start go on to order it month after month. Because they're getting relief. A dollar a day, it's a trial pack. Hundreds of thousands of people have ordered Relief Factor, and a lot. Seventy percent go on to order and take every single day. That says everything. Doesn't it?

ReliefFactor.com. 800-4-Relief. 800-4-Relief. 19.95. Three-week Quick Start, developed for you. ReliefFactor.com, or call 800-4-Relief. Relief Factor. Feel the difference.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, dog. Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program.

So now we've gone down a rabbit hole. I brought up Sally Hemings. And now Stu is on a Sally Hemings rabbit hole.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And what have you found?

STU: Well, Monticello said. They think it's likely that he fathered, maybe one, maybe more than one of these children. And I was thinking to myself. Did Jefferson do that? What's like the real backing on this? So I went into one of the big scholar's commissioned reports that Thomas Jefferson Heritage Organization. And they -- they summarize it this way. This is what their report was, after saying it was 300 pages long. In the end, after roughly one year of examining the issues, we find the question of whether Thomas Jefferson fathered one or more children by his slave Sally Hemings, to be one about which honorable people can and do disagree.

However, it is our unanimous view, that the allegation is by no means proven. And we find it regrettable that public confusion about the 1998 DNA testing and other evidence has misled many people into believing the issue was closed. With the exception of one member, whose views were set forth below. Our individual conclusions range from serious skepticism about the charge, to the conviction that it is almost certainly untrue. It goes through. All the scholars that were related to this, backed that opinion, with the exception of one.

GLENN: Wow!

STU: And this is what the -- the dissent wrote. With the report -- with the -- the report of the majority, I'm in general agreement. I dissent only in believing it's somewhat more likely than not. That Thomas Jefferson was the father of Eston Hemings. One of the children.

Goes on to say, it also could have been -- others. It says, this suggests the possibility that Thomas Jefferson fathered all of her known children. But it does not prove that he fathered even one.

What it does establish is a strong probability, that her pregnancies during the period, when she appears to have resided at Monticello, were occasioned by (inaudible) there. So there are evidences, he seems to be there, at the same time she got pregnant.

GLENN: Do they mention at all -- do they mention at all, the smear on him in I think it was like, 1801, they started smearing him as president. And in the campaign. And they -- the smear was, his brother slept with slaves.

STU: Yes. No. It does.

It goes into the fact that it could be any of -- here, let's see. It is a fact, notwithstanding a mistake to jump to the conclusion that Jefferson must have been the father of Sally Hemings' children for there were other events that normally coincided with his visits there.

Among these, one is pertinent to this inquiry. The presence of visitors whose offspring are tolerably likely to have looked like Thomas Jefferson. Visitors such as Thomas Jefferson's younger brother, Randolph. Randolph's four or five sons. And Peter and Samuel Carr, sons of his sister. Goes through -- and it's 300 pages. It breaks down all of these things in incredible detail. But, I mean, you look at the summary, they're either very skeptical of it. Or completely disregarded with the exception of one guy, who is from Hillsdale, by the way. Not some crazy, liberal guy.

But said, look, I don't think -- I don't -- I think it's more likely than not, that one of the children was.

But that's not an open-and-shut case, by any means, and there's a lot of other possibilities there, which is interesting. That's not how the media covers that at all.

GLENN: And this is not being taught at Monticello. What's being taught at Monticello is that he fathered Sally Hemings children. There's the evidence. How does Monticello get away with it? Huge, liberal donations.

‘LOOK OUT’: Signs we’re facing a dangerous, NEW America

Texans better ‘wake up,’ Glenn says. Because the state — and many American conservatives outside of it — are NOT moving fast enough to keep up with our rapidly changing America. Glenn explains why believes a new ‘season’ is on the horizon for our nation, and he describes the one thing President Biden could do to ‘polish us off.’ But, it’s not all bad news. In this clip, Glenn also explains why he’s hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C…

GLENN: I have Ron DeSantis on this week on Thursday, for the podcast.

STU: Hmm. That should be interesting. And I think he's the only out there, running in the right direction at the right speed. I think -- I think Florida is one of the only ones that may survive.

I mean, everybody else.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Even Texas, which is pretty good, is not nearly moving fast enough.

PAT: It doesn't feel like we're on the same trajectory as Florida right now. It seems like they're protecting their freedoms a lot more passionately than -- than we are in Texas.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, there's no doubt that Governor Abbott has made some missteps over the last couple of years.

GLENN: He doesn't suck though.

PAT: He doesn't suck. But people are pissed at him.

GLENN: Because they expect Ron DeSantis.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Nothing better for Governor Abbott, than to be potentially running against potential Governor O'Rourke though.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. I know. Seriously, I think Abbott would be a great governor, really in any other state.

STU: Right.

GLENN: But Texas is like, wait a minute. What. Wait.

STU: We don't like to be outdone.

GLENN: We don't like to be outdone. And if he were in any other state, we would count him as one of the best governors in the country. And he is. But if you live in Texas, it doesn't feel that way. And Texans, you better wake up. Because you really do want to go out and vote, otherwise, you get Beto.

PAT: Yeah. Uh-huh.

STU: It's interesting with DeSantis in particular. From a political standpoint, he's -- he's always in the middle of the right issues.

GLENN: With the right thing, taking the right stand.

STU: Right. And, usually, like at the right level too. He's not just saying -- you might -- it might be satisfying to conservative talk radio listeners, if you come out and you attack all these listeners. And you do all these things that are really, really hard-core. But he has a way of balancing, talking to his base. By doing things that are legal. That are sensible.

GLENN: That are going through the House and the Senate.

STU: That are going through the House and they Senate.

GLENN: He's passing laws. He's not just doing it executive fiat.

STU: It's not just big symbolic gestures. It's been a pretty interesting approach. I remember when he kind of emerged as one of the top candidates, as potential presidential nominee in in 2024. It was early. It was like early -- you know, early pandemic. He was one of the first governors to sort of open things up. And at least get a lot of attention for it. Even though, Kristi Noem pointed out, never closed down. But he's been able to maintain that. And continue building on it. Where a bunch of other governors from that era, were sort of the darlings of conservatives for a while and faded. He's been able to stay right there.

GLENN: Right. Because he continues. That's what I mean. He's on the right track, at the right speed. He's taking all of it on. It's like, I really appreciate the states that are taking on ESG. But when of them are taking on just the E. Well, that leaves the -- the people of your state at risk. It's the S and the G, as well. That are problems.

And DeSantis is doing these things. At the top of the hour, I'm going to tell you, what he did. Vanity Fair just came out with a hysterical article, about how authoritarian Rick DeSantis is.

STU: Can you imagine how bad Ron must be? If Rick is bad, imagine how Ron will be? You'll never get that name right.

Okay. It's not like you're President Ronald Trump. You have just DeSantis.

GLENN: I know. Just DeSantis. Just DeSantis. So, anyway, this is hysterical. He just put in a civics requirements. And wait until you hear the way Vanity Fair is talking about it.

I mean, 1619 Project will come to mind, several times. But it's crazy, because they are defending incorrect history. Their defense is, Thomas Jefferson was raping their slaves. Oh, if I hear that one more time.

PAT: Oh, jeez.

GLENN: That's not true. It was not true.

In fact, dig up that information we had on Thomas Jefferson a couple of weeks ago. Just so we can -- just so we can remind people at the top of the hour. But, you know, I -- I felt something, oh, probably. Probably about eight months ago. I felt the seasons change. And that was spiritual advice to me. Almost 15 years ago. And somebody said to me. Glenn, I said -- when am I going to know? And they said, watch the trees. When the seasons change, you will know.

And I -- I didn't know if I would know that. And I had a real feeling about eight months ago, seasons are changing. And we're in it deeper now. And getting closer to real problems.

This summer within the last eight or nine weeks, I felt them change again. And I think, I could be wrong. But I think that is this climate bill. I think this is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out.

The only other thing that I think they could do to make things -- to really polish us off. Is emergency orders. And if he goes for emergency orders, and declares a national emergency with the weather, we're going to be -- we're going to be cooked. But I was at CPAC. And I saw some of the candidates, that are coming up. And if we can get these candidates in, they're serious. They're serious candidates. I don't know about the ones around you. But the nation has a few people that are willing to go to Washington. Lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. And save the republic. And save the Constitution. What are you saving it from? People who are trying to destroy the Constitution. Read it.

How the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ targets FARMERS…and YOU.

The Senate passed a 740 BILLION DOLLAR package over the weekend, with Vice President Kamala Harris giving Democrats the last vote they needed. The bill is called the ‘Inflation Reduction Act of 2022,’ but Glenn explains why it likely will do the EXACT opposite. And not only could it hurt your wallet, but it may hurt your food, too. Glenn details parts of the bill that target American farmers and the farming industry, all in the name of climate change. The ramifications — many of which are already happening in Europe — could be HUGE: ‘This is really, very dangerous.’

GLENN: If we don't collapse the size of this government soon, it will become an oppressor. Yesterday -- or, over the weekend, the Senate passed the 740 billion-dollar climate or health care reconciliation package. Now, just remember, $700 billion was the size of the -- DARPA, Obama.

STU: Yeah. First Obama stimulus package.

GLENN: Stimulus. And we all had a cow, that it was 700 billion dollars. We thought that was outrageous. This is 740 billion, just on climate and, quote, health care.

But is it? Let me give you some -- let me give you some information on this. It passed, the bill includes $370 billion in green energy. Subsidies. Now, do you remember how well the green energy subsidies happened last time, when Obama was in? Aren't we just making money, hand over fist, with all of those great investments, that we had under Obama?

STU: I'm a billionaire, because of my investment in Solyndra. It's worked out so well.

GLENN: Is that because of inflation? Because I think that went out of business. Now, here's the key to this bill: $80 billion -- now, remember, 370. This is the biggest thing ever. This is -- this has got to be done. Because we're all going to do to die in a fiery flood. 370 billion, and 80 billion is for the IRS. Now, I want you to listen to what they say, and you'll read it over and over again. It's the Internal Revenue Service, for enforcement. Now, enforcement. Do we have that many greedy billionaires that just aren't paying their taxes. I would like to know.

Do we have that many billionaires that don't have enough money for really good attorneys, to read the law. That you're going to need 80,000 new IRS agents. That doesn't seem to compute at all, does it?

Now, by the way, they're saying that it's going to reduce inflation. It's not going to reduce inflation. If it does, and this is the honest-to-God truth, it may reduce inflation. Why?

Because it's going to hurt you so badly, that you won't be able to buy things. Remember, too much money chasing too far goods. So if you can't make the goods, you've got to reduce the money chasing it. That means, they've got to slow you down, at the store. And that is exactly what this bill will do. But because the government is going to be spending so much more money, I don't think it's going to reduce inflation at all. In fact, I think it's going to make inflation worse. But your -- your life is going to become much more tough. Now, I want to give you some more perspective on this. First of all, the American people. Just see how out of touch the American people -- the -- Washington is. Compared to the American people.

Just 12 percent of the new economist you.gov poll. Twelve percent of people think this will actually reduce inflation. The other time, three times as many, 6 percent. Believe it will actually increase inflation. Twenty-three percent believe they don't think the bill will move inflation either way.

And only 29 percent say, they are unsure. Now, this bill is climate and inflation reduction. You don't believe that it's actually going to reduce inflation. They don't ask if you think if it would actually help the green movement. And protect the earth. But they did ask this: Do you -- do you believe it will lower inflation? Average respondent? 51 percent, no. But do you support the bill?

31 percent said, they strongly or somewhat oppose the bill. The rest agreed with it. So who is confused here? You don't believe in it, but you support it.

Now, I'm not talking about you personally. But I'm talking about the American people. How is that possible?

That is because we still believe, that our government, somehow or another, there's still enough people believe that our government or your personal guy in Congress or in the Senate is doing the right thing.

I don't know how this is working. It -- well, I do. They didn't ask another question, in that poll. Do you actually know what's in it?

I can guarantee you, most people don't know what's in it. But let me give you a couple of things. And let's start with the big one.

The inflation reduction act, will give the IRS $80 billion, in additional funding. So you know, that's a 600 percent increase of their budget. 600 percent.

They will hire as many as 87,000 additional employees for enforcement. The increase would more than double the size of the IRS work. Which currently has 78,661 full-time staffers. So they have 78,000, they're adding an additional 87,000. To give you some perspective, the Pentagon. You know how many people work at the Pentagon? You know a huge building that goes on and on and on. Pentagon. World's largest military. The Pentagon houses 27,000 employees.

27,000!

We're talking over 160,000 IRS agents. The State Department employs 77,243. The FBI has 35,000 people. The customs and Border Patrol employs 19,536 Border Patrol agents. This will make the IRS bigger than all of those agencies, combined.

Now are you for this act? It's a little too late. But are you now for this act?

This is going to be staggering. And here's where it really will impact you. In the bill, in fact, I want to -- page -- page 529, of the Inflation Reduction Act. It will pay -- pay farmers to not farm. They want -- they want to restore the soil. So the measures will include plowing your soil less. Implementing climate-friendly crop rotation techniques. And planting cover crops, that do not yield any food.

There's 20 billion dollars available, September 30th now. To diminish the climate impact from farms. They are going to start paying farmers, not to farm. And then you'll be fine. They're also going to now, hmm. I would like to say encourage you. But what they're going to do to the farmers is tell them, exactly how they can farm. They're going to tell them now, just like they are over in Europe, where the farmers are going out of business and on the streets, protesting. They are now going to tell them, that they have to adopt more climate friendly provisions. They are going to regulate what you can feed your cow. They're going to -- they're going to also tell you what you can grow. How you grow it. What you can use as fertilizer. And the fertilizer that we're all used to. You know, the one that grows one-third more than the old fertilizer. You're not going to be able to use that. Now, we're entering a global food crisis.

Farmers all around the world are going in on this nonsense. It's not working. All around the world. And we've just implemented it, and we're hiring 87,000 new IRS agents, to make sure you comply.

Well, this doesn't have anything to do with the taxes. Oh, yeah. It does. Because you will be getting subsidies. Oh, yes. It does. Because you'll have an ESG score, if you're a farmer.

This is going to devastate our farms. Have you ever noticed, that whenever communists take over, the first thing they do, is kill usually everybody who disagrees with them.

They take out anybody who is ever successful at something. Look at the difference between GM and Elon Musk. Look at the difference between what he's building, and what all these other guys had been building. But all these other guys had been building. The guy is building a spaceship to Mars. The guy has transformed the automobile. And yet, he's on the outs. They're coming after him. I can guarantee you, some of those 87,000 IRS agents are just going to work on Elon Musk and his companies. So they first come after anybody who is a capitalist. Anybody who disagrees with them. Anyone who can do anything. They get rid of them, if they can't co-opt them. Then they go after the farmers. And then when there's a problem with the farmers, they then kill the farmers. Or take their land away. And say, you're not doing it right. Well, because farmers have farmed for generations. They know the things that they have to do. It's not like farmers don't know to rest their land. Or to change their crops. Of course, they know that.

They're farmers. Now we have eggheads coming in. And it happens every time communists take control. That's why people end up eating the zoo animals, and then their dogs.

This is really very dangerous. Oh, by the way, in Europe, they're already to the next phase. The first phase was saying, the climate has to be controlled. And we have to control it through the farmers. The farmers then start to collapse. The farmers then start to take to the streets. And say, this is insanity. Well, the next phase is because no one knows where their food comes from. Or how to grow it. The next phase is already happening. The anti-farm sentiment is growing now in Europe. You watch. The farmers are going to get a really bad name. And the farmers are going to be blamed for the food shortages. You watch. I guarantee it. It's already happening in Europe. So now people are taking to the streets, and saying, it's these farmers that are at fault. This story, repeats itself, over and over again, until human beings learn the lesson.

The question is, America: Will we learn the lesson this time?

It's amazing, because on some of these things, we're behind. We have the results from Europe. And we're still doing it.

EXPLAINED: George Soros’ money is RUINING American cities Watch later Share

Thankfully, many are beginning to realize the DANGEROUS influence that billionaire George Soros and his money have on elections and politics in the U.S. In fact, Soros-backed prosecutors and Attorney Generals have RUINED several of America’s biggest cities, riddling them with crime and chaos. Soros, possibly feeling the heat, recently took to the Wall Street Journal to defend his practices. But his words won’t fool Glenn. In this clip, Glenn reads the op-ed and explains why Soros' money should be BANNED from America for GOOD.

GLENN: It is time now for our George Soros update.
(music)
Yes. It's weird, the George Soros update suspiciously sounds almost like the Darth Vader theme. But I think that's purely a coincidence.

George Soros is in the news, because he's giving a lot of heat for his meddling in our elections and putting in all of these AGs that are now being thrown out of office. You can't even -- the cities can't even wait for the next election. They're like, please, make it stop. So George Soros just wrote an essay in the Wall Street, and I've had it on my desk. And I'm just -- we're getting so far behind, I just have to take -- I have to take pepperoni eyes, at his word. And say, you know, the evil emperor has spoken. So let's listen to what he has to say. And he said, like most of us. I'm very, very concerned about crime. One of government's most (snoring) important roles to ensure safety. The criminal justice system, in the more than 30 years, that I have been a -- fill-in rapist? What's a fill-in rapist? Anyway, our system is right after with injustices, that make us all less safe. The idea that we need to choose between justice and safety is false. They reinforce each other. If people trust the justice system, it will work. And if the system works, public safety will improve. No toys!

Anyway, we need to acknowledge that black people in U.S. are five times as likely to be sent to jail as white people. That is an injustice that undermines our democracy. No. Okay. Can we stop looking at things as groups, please? An injustice will happen to one person, not necessarily to a group. So let's not say, all black people are bad. Or all white people are good. Or all black people shouldn't be in prison. All white people shouldn't be in prison. What do you say? The ones who have actually committed crimes, should go to jail. I don't care what color they are. I don't care -- justice is blind. You know what would solve this? You know what would solve this? Is if we just stuck forks in all of the judges eyes. Then they would be blind. Justice is supposed to be blind. Maybe we make it mandatory. You want to be a judge? You've got to be blind. And nobody tell him what color -- he doesn't know it's a white guy that he just sentenced. Oh.

We spend $81 billion every year, keeping around 2 million people in prisons and jails. Well, if that's what it takes, to keep, you know, murderers off the streets, I'm kind of okay with that. Are -- you know, are you? Look, I am looking for ways to invest more in preventing crime, and strategies that work. Now, listen to this. He's more interested investing in preventing crime, and strategies, that work! This genders -- both safety and justice is based both on common sense and evidence. It is popular. It is effective. Is that why everybody is having a recall of all of your DA's?

Because it's so popular. You know what, forget about the stabbing and the shooting. I love this guy, when the job that they are doing in office, so much. I want to get him out of office, before the next election. They've just done such good work. Sure, we could keep him in there. But I want to reward them, by getting them out of office. That, George, is not popular. This agendas is popular. Serious scholars. Overcomes scholars. Researching causes behinds the recent increase in crime. Have pointed to other factors. A disturbing rise in mental illness among young people, due to the isolation imposed by covid lockdowns. Oh. So we're now -- we're now recognizing that that caused mental illness. A pullback of policing in the wake of public criminal justice reform protest. Those aren't criminal justice reform protest. Those were mobs in the street. That were condemning our cops, and calling them all killers. I don't know if you noticed this, George, but that little experiment led to a lot of great cops, just leaving. It led to also places, just firing a bunch of cops. Have you been to Seattle lately? Oh, it's beautiful this time of year.

When the -- when the red from the blood, kind of just kind of reflects up on the green of the trees, oh, you feel like it's Christmastime. Many of the same people, who called for more punitive criminal justice policies, also support looser gun laws. Yeah. Somebody should have a gun. Because your people are letting all of the criminals out in the street. This is why I've supported the election. And more recently, in reelection of prosecutors, who support reform. I have done it transparently. Oh, my gosh, you are so transparent. You are as transparent as a mountain. And I have no intention of stopping -- of course not. Nothing can stop you. Nothing can stop you. No sane country in the world, would allow somebody to come into the country, like George Soros, and just meddle in our elections like he's doing. Just shape -- get into bed with the left. Fund them to the tune of billions of dollars. Millions of dollars, going through all these shadow organizations. To fund everything that could destroy us. No, no, no. No. I'm serious. It's going to be very, very, very goods. Yeah. Very good.

What I want you to do is maybe put in some Russian people, in for police. You're missing police. So I thought maybe we -- I find it kind of fun. Meet Boris.

Oh. Oh, good. The police. Oh, they're going to be Russians. That's fantastic. Yeah.

Well, I -- I kind of assure people will be hurt. Legs will be broken. But, you know, you have to break some legs. Okay. Okay. All right. Hey, here's something else that he's doing. He is spearheading with Joe Biden, efforts against election integrity. He is spending all kinds of money. Just to make sure everything is safe. And comes out the way it should, you know. A proposed constitutional amendment in Michigan, by a Soros-funded group. Would prevent both stricter voter ID requirements. And a ban on private donations to election officials from being enacted. So he's -- he's like, what, I just want to give some money to some election officials. What could possibly go wrong? You call it a bribe. I call it happy money.

Federal agencies, under the Biden administration, now seeking to increase voter registration and turnout. A group linked to the left-wing mega donor, George Soros. Why are you saying this? Why are you saying my name? Is because I'm Jewish. Is pushing for a constitutional amendment, in the battleground state of Michigan, that would allow Zuckerbucks to be used in election administration.

Oh. What could possibly be wrong? Would the press leave me alone, if I said, you know what, I'm going to fund like it's -- it's like a traveling library. Except, it's a traveling little bus. That you can vote in. And I'm going to go to all of those counties that are the deepest, deepest of red. And I'm going to make sure that we get every vote. Of course, I -- I'm just funding it. I have nothing to do. I have nothing to say about it. And, oh, I've paid off some people in the -- in the local precincts. You know, just -- I'm just giving them some happy money. Would anyone in the press say, oh, that's okay for Glenn Beck to do it? No, of course not. I wouldn't do it, because I wouldn't be cool with it. The states, that is their job. Oh.

Anyway, so he is now working with Biden, funding all of this stuff. Earlier this year, Biden put out his entire cabinet, all the departments, such as housing and urban development. Health and Human Services. And the labor department. Boris is busy right now. You want more legs broken. What? They now want to turn their work and, you know, sure. I want you -- you know those assisted housing centers. Those are fantastic. Can you just register some people too?

Federal agencies are now participating in voter turnout efforts. And, by the way, I just want you to know, those agencies are all now run by Democrats. Would you be okay with this, Democrats? If Donald Trump just said, hey, guys. An hour of can't workday. Just an hour. You Democrats. You, you. Well, not you. How do you vote? Yeah. Not you. But you, you, and you. I want you to turn your agency into a voter registration agency. This is insane! Insane.

George Soros should be banned from the United States. His money should be banned. By the way, a judge in San Francisco. You know, he -- yesterday, they were like, we've got to allow none citizens to vote. Because -- because noncitizen has the word citizen in it. So they're citizens. Noncitizens. And they should vote.

Yeah. Well, there was a ruling that has just been released. The judge in San Francisco. Let me say that again. A California judge, struck down the San Francisco city ordinance, allowing noncitizens to vote. Huh. Gee. What could have gone wrong with that?

It's amazing how our government has been turned into an instrument, that is opposed to our individual rights. And protecting our individual rights. Our vote is sacred. You have a right to have your voice be heard. And you have your right, to make sure that your voice is not watered down by corruption. Or by people who shouldn't be voting. That's their priority.

This administration is using every tool they have. To do the exact opposite. This is why these -- this administrative state has to be shut down.

It's not constitutional. It is a -- it is a progressive idea. And nobody in our founding, had thought, oh, yeah. Congress will just give up their power. Why would people do that? Because they're getting rich if they do. And they don't have to answer for anything. So they just keep going to work.

Let the administration do it. And the administration doesn't -- Biden, he's -- I'm not. I mean, yeah. I hired the guy. But holy crap. What did he do? What did the administration do? Well, it wasn't him. The head. It was probably somebody down. You know, like a Lois Lerner. And we can't blame them and send them to jail. Unless, how did she vote? Yeah. We can't send her to jail. That's not the American way

'DEEPLY TROUBLING' revelations from FBI testimony: 'NOW is the time to choose'

The Senate Judiciary Committee's latest hearing with FBI Director Christopher Wray showcased just how little he knows about what’s happening in his department (or how little he's willing to admit). Glenn breaks down the latest revelations, from the "deeply troubling" memos sent to the entire department regarding "domestic extremists" to the shocking connections between the FBI's Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping debacle and the January 6 investigations. And he has some advice for FBI agents: "Now is the time to choose: Are you on the side of truth and real justice, or are you just standing on the sidelines?"

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Yesterday, testifying in the -- the committee in Washington, DC, was our FBI super God. And he wants you to know, that when he first heard about the FBI mishandling of the Hunter Biden information. He was -- he found it, quote, deeply troubling. Yeah. He hadn't done a damn thing about it. But he finds it deeply troubling. Which I, for one, really, truly appreciate. Let's get a couple of clips here. From Ted Cruz. Versus Christopher Ray.

Cut 14, please. Uh-huh. Ever see what I mean.

VOICE: This is a text that I was particularly struck, is the Gonzalez battle flag. Come and take it. As indicative of being a violent extremist militia, well, I will self-report now. And every day in the Senate, I wear my boots, that have the Gonzalez battle flag on the back of it.

GLENN: Amen.

TED: Director Ray, what are y'all doing? This makes no sense. Do -- do you agree with this FBI guidance, that the Betsy Ross flag and the Gadsden flag and the Gonzalez battle flag are signs of militia, violent extremism?

VOICE: Well, senator, I'm not familiar with the particular document you have behind you.

GLENN: Oh, I can't take it. Shut up! Okay. So stop. Stop. Stop.

I am so sick of this answer. Well, you know, I run the damn place. But, boy, I'm not aware of that -- that flier we put out to all FBI agents, saying, this is what you should look for, for domestic terrorists. You know what, I find that document. Now that you've pointed it out. I find that document, deeply troubling. Oh, yeah. Are you doing anything about it? No. But I find it deeply troubling, I'll tell you that.

The fact that you have it, and it was leaked out of my office. I'll find that damn leak, I'll tell you that right now. Then you have Ted Cruz questioning the FBI director about an FBI special agent. Listen to this. Cut 25.

TED: Recently.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

TED: There was the case against individuals charged with kidnapping and murdering Governor Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan.

That case ended up an absolute debacle, where the four people who went to trial, two of them received mistrials. None of them were convicted on even a single charge. And the basis of the defense was entrapment. That the FBI, that paid enforcements for the FBI, had suggested, and had incited the conduct. Let me ask you: How many FBI agents were disciplined and reprimanded after that disastrous case, and the misconduct that led to every defendant being acquitted or having a mistrial in every charge?

VOICE: Senator, I can't comment on any personal matter. I can tell you, that that case as I understand it, is now pending a retrial, as I understand.

TED: Well, the special agent in charge of that case, has now been sent to DC to the Washington, DC, office and now leads the investigation regarding January 6th. Is that correct?

VOICE: That doesn't sound right to me.

TED: That does not sound right. The -- the name of the individual is Steven -- he was run out of the FBI Detroit field office. And, by the way, I will point out that the lead investigator, special agent track, are you aware that he was apparently fired, for allegedly beating his wife after coming home from a swinger's party, and he made multiple derogatory political posts about President Trump, showing political bias. Are you aware of that?

VOICE: I'm aware of I think the incident you're describing. An action you're declaring about it. To clarify the first part of your question, Mr. Dan Twano (phonetic) was the special agent in charge of the office, the Detroit field office. Now the assistant director in charge of the Washington field office. I thought you were asking about the agent who was responsible for these.

TED: So the guy in charge got promoted and is now in charge of the January 6 investigation.

VOICE: The guy in charge of the whole Detroit field office is now in charge of the whole Washington field office.

TED: That is astonishing.

GLENN: Okay. Yeah. I find it deeply troubling. You know, we're not going to do anything about it. But I do find it deeply troubling. Listen, if you're in the FBI. If you're in the FBI. You have a choice to make. You can sit around and wait for your retirement. Which good luck with that. No, no, no, no.

The government. Oh, they're going to give you all of this happy money. I'll bet you retire with $6 billion. Yeah. Yeah. It will be worth about 40 cents. But you go ahead and keep your retirement while they flush our government and our way of life down the toilet. If you are an FBI agent, now is the time to choose. Are you on the side of truth and real justice? Or are you just standing on the sidelines and not reporting? Are you just standing on the sidelines and saying, yeah. It can't get worse than this. Oh, yes, it will. Knock. Knock. Who is there? We will ask the questions here. Don't worry about it. It's all going to be good. By the way, the Democrats finally have their climate bill. Which I think is -- we want to thank Kyrsten Sinema. She apparently got her dome over the city of Phoenix, for air-conditioning. Oh, no. She didn't hold out for that? Oh, she was holding -- really? She was holding out for the elimination of that billionaire tax. That was in the -- that was in the climate bill. So not the climate bill. I'm sorry. It's the -- it's the anti-inflation bill. So...

STU: Do you think -- are we going to get some blockages now from the Bernie Sanders' wing. He's saying he's trying to do something about it. He's calling it a climate suicide pact. So if he votes for it, it will be interesting to see why he signed on to a climate suicide pact. Now the far left is saying, they may bail on this. They can only lose, obviously, one set. Or four or five congresspeople for this to occur.

GLENN: Right. Of course, they're bailing on it. Because the people who actually believe in climate change. Not as a vehicle, to take us to socialist town. It's great right now. The streets are alive with the sound of bloodshed.

They know, this is not going to do anything for global warming, if they're honest. You know what is included in this bill? I love this. I love it. $20 billion to pay farmers not to grow crops.

Now, when we have a -- a worldwide global food emergency coming, and our government is going to pay farmers $20 billion so they can rest those fields. They should be rested and for several years. Maybe forever. Because they've been growing stuff. And growing stuff. And they're tired. And we've just got to rest those fields forever. And I think that is money well spent. I mean, every farmer knows you have to rotate crops. And you have to rest your land. Every farmer knows that. Now the government is going to pay you to do that. And when you're struggling with things like fertilizer. And seeds. And everything else.

You're going to pay me, how much? To do nothing? Farmers, don't take it. Don't take it. Please, America has to be the breadbasket. We are going to have to feed the rest of the world. This is suicide!

By the way, just to add to it, climate alarmism, is now creating a potential for U.S. food insecurity, as anti-farm sentiment grows. Now, who isn't anti-farm? Seriously. Sure, I like to eat. But I don't want it coming from a farm. Oh. Those places are a mess. There's cow dung everywhere. They put poop on the -- on the -- on the vegetables, to make it grow. Oh, my gosh. I can't -- I hate farms.

I like food. But damn those farmers, man. I just -- what is wrong with people!

Oh, I know. The education system is teaching you to be a complete and total dummy. You should know your food comes from these farms, yeah. I know. But climate change is so bad. It would be so much better, if -- oh, I don't know. Maybe 3 billion people could just stop doing this.

The world would be such a better place, if we could all just stop doing it. Every time you do this, you are taking and you're putting poison for all of the trees and the sky and the little bunny rabbits. And every time you do this, you're stealing the air from them! Oh, my gosh. Why can't we just go back to something natural?

Okay. Sure. All right. By the way, some more good news, the Biden administration, according to a whistle-blower, thank you very much, whistle-blowers. The Biden administration let Afghans on the DOD watch list into the United States of America. While we were evacuating people. Now, that's weird. Because our people are still sitting in the lily pad countries. The countries that were just supposed to be housing them for a couple of weeks, while we move them into new countries. But because our United States government State Department would not -- I shouldn't even say. Would not vouch for anybody. Went to great extents to destroy the credibility of almost every agency out there, that is an NGO, that was saving people. They are all those people that were pulled out of Afghanistan. Are still sitting in a country, that doesn't really want them. Oh, that's good. That's good.

These allies. They love us! They're great, is what they always say about America now. Meanwhile, we could fly those guys in, that were on the terrorist watch list. Do you not see a pattern here?

Everything that is bad for America, and bad for the western world, they're doubling down on. They're importing terrorists while not letting good Christians in, that don't have any part of anything of terror. People who are atheists have nothing to do with terrorists. They're sitting some other place. While the United States government is flying in people that are on our watch list.

Well, the good news is, we'll have plenty of food to feed -- wait a minute.
