Glenn: 1 reason Elon Musk's 'Twitter Files' are DISTURBING

The information Elon Musk handed over to journalist Matt Taibbi concerning Twitter corruption during the 2020 election season — which has now become known as the ‘Twitter Files’ — probably isn’t shocking to conservatives. After all, we already knew most of the information a LONG time ago, even if the mainstream media refused to accept the facts. But there is one, big takeaway from the Twitter Files that you should recognize. In this clip, Glenn reveals what he believes is the 1 reason this information drop is truly ‘disturbing.’

GLENN: Let's talk a little bit about Twitter. Did you go over the exposé, that was done this weekend on Twitter?

STU: From Matt Taibbi?

The journalist?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Elon Musk, basically seemed to give him a cache, of some sort of a bunch of emails about whatever the Democrats were doing, around the Hunter Biden laptop era. Right before the 2020 election. And he was going to go through it, and kind of see what was there. It was interesting, Musk wasn't trying to do it himself. He was doing it to, he was a responsible journalist to go through it.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Okay. That's the second time you've said that word. And I just can't -- you said a journalist. And then respected journalist. The guy is a blogger. I know because I've read it in the New York Times. I've read it in politico. I've read it and heard it from NBC. MSNBC. CNN. ABC News. He's a blogger. I heard it from the rolling stone.

STU: Wait.

GLENN: And they should know.

STU: Because he worked for them, didn't he?

GLENN: Well, he was a contributing editor to the rolling stone. And took down some major things. But, I mean, does that make you a journalist?

STU: And now he's -- so even rolling stone is saying, now he's a blogger.

GLENN: He's a blogger. He's a blogger.

STU: Okay. And I assume they would say the same about Bari Weiss, who is one of the bigwigs over at the New York Times.

GLENN: Of course. She's a Substack blogger.

STU: Right. That is what they're trying to do here, to push this off.

GLENN: Which to me, don't you think that's changed?

I think journalist is actually less credible, than blogger. I mean, especially a Substack blogger.

I mean, oh, that -- you mean like Glenn Greenwald, and Bari Weiss.

And Taibbi. Yeah. I think I'm -- I think I'm going to run in that PAC and not the others. You listen to Bari Weiss, talk about her departure from the New York Times. And she talks about how there were all sorts of pressures within the organization, to not say what people believed.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And they went after people who questioned the narrative the wrong way, over and over again. So you would think, when you're free to do whatever you want to do you at least will be honest about it. You will come out and say what you believe. And I think you got that from the initial Twitter files release. Which kind of deal with both sizes.

Saying, well, there were some stuff on both sides. And there were good Democrats in all this. But generally speaking, what it pointed to, was a real effort by the Biden campaign, as we suspected, to go after narratives, they thought, didn't serve them. But part of that was the Hunter laptop. Part of the reason why I wasn't all over this so far, is because I don't think we have the real picture yet. We have only a small slice.

GLENN: Right.

STU: These documents were turned over to a couple of journalists, who have not had -- or, bloggers, who have not had the time to fully go through them and give us, you know, a moment by moment look as to who did what and how they did it, and I think it will take time for that to sort of marinate and go through the system.

GLENN: So here -- from 40,000 feet, here's what we discovered. Elon Musk released some of this inside information, and some of the documents that showed, a couple of things. One, the FBI was meeting with them monthly. And that is, as it got close to the election, they were meeting with them weekly. That is troublesome. Again, not something that we didn't know. But it is something that was called a conspiracy theory for a long time.

That's they were taking the Hunter Biden story. And they were getting advice from the FBI.
And the people inside of Twitter, were the ones that were torpedoing it, with the advice from the Biden campaign.

Well, that's what we found. So it's not new to any conservative. However, it is new to the press.

And it is new to the press. This is why this is a big deal.

You're not going to -- in my opinion. You're not going to feel like, whoa. Wow.

Look at that smoking gun. Because we've been talking about it.

We've known this was going on. The whole world has known, this was going on. And what they found was, the -- the right will get some things, you know on their side. As well.

But the disturbing part to me was, it comes through personal contacts. So it is truly -- would you call it nepotism. You know you have to know somebody. And if you knew somebody in Twitter, you could get the world changed.

And so you had people reaching out to their friends in Twitter. Reaching out to their former coworkers. Maybe at the White House. Saying, hey, look. This is a problem. Can you take care of it?

Yep. I got it. I'll take care of it for you.

STU: Of course, implicit in that, 90 percent of the people who worked in that, were liberal.

All their friends were liberal. So most of the stuff that got edited, were stuff that people wanted edited.

So it was not fair, as they pointed out. It's not balanced. It's not like both sides did the same thing by any means. The only thing --

GLENN: Well, both sides did the same things. But not anywhere -- you know when it's -- you know when it's one time for every nine times.

STU: Right.

GLENN: That's not doing the same thing.

STU: Right. And I think the only thing that we need to see here. This is one of the things that confirmed what we were seeing going on. And what we had he would have of always occurring.

We already have evidence going down this road pretty significantly. This has backed it up. It hasn't reached to the level yet. That is to what I expect. I set the standard so high, for this. Because I assume what they've done is so terrible, during these election periods.

That we haven't seen that evidence yet. I think it will come out. We'll see it eventually.

So far, we haven't seen it. We have only seen 80 percent of what was going on. Not 100 percent.

GLENN: So here's why this is important. If you are in with the it crowd, the it crowd controls really, the narrative still in America.

Because the New York Times and television and everything else, still is caught in that.

Now, I don't know if the American people are still caught in that. But unless you get both sides, talking about something, it's not going to filter down to the average American.

Okay? And here's -- here's the really interesting part. First, they said, that this was a conspiracy. That that wasn't happening.

Now that we have the evidence and the actual documents to show that it is that way. What do they do?

Now, I am somebody that I just don't believe in coincidence. I just don't.

Sometimes, wow. What a coincidence. Sometimes, but I always look first, hmm. That's a weird coincidence. Are we seeing this anyplace else?

For instance, when they talked right after COVID started. They were all saying the same thing. And then they all started to say, the new normal. And then it went from the new normal to the great reset. And everybody -- all of a sudden, one day, everybody is talking about The Great Reset. As a positive. And they're not explaining what The Great Reset is. They're just saying, we need a Great Reset. Do you remember any of that?

This is what happened over the weekend. To take Taibbi. And destroy him as a journalist, they accuse him of PR work. He is just being a public relations person. To whom?

To, quote, the richest man in the world.

And what does that make it? Sad. Embarrassing. Humiliating.

Now, let me go through some of these things. This is the prime time editor for Mediaite. Matt Taibbi went from a fierce and intrepid journalist taking aims at the wealthy and powerful, to doing mundane PR for the world's richest huckster. Embarrassing.

Ben Collins. Senior report for NBC.
Imagine throwing it all away to do PR work for the richest person in the world.

Humiliating.

Bloomberg. Editors are great at not just because they make your work sharper, but because they will ask things like, hey, should you be doing PR work for the richest man on the planet? MSNBC. Imagine volunteering to do online PR work for the world's richest man.

Let's see. Media Matters.

Matt Taibbi thread is a great example of overwriting when you don't have the kids, but you want to admit you're just doing PR for the world's richest person.

Matt McDermott. Doing PR for the richest person in the world should come as no surprise.

The correspondent for the New York Times, CNN, Daily Beast, Huffington Post, and as a host on Al Jazeera. Tweeted, Matt Taibbi, what sad, disgraceful downfall. I swear. He did good work in the old days. Should be a cautionary tale for everyone. Selling your soul for the richest white nationalist on earth.

Oh, my gosh. The editor-in-chief. Something called popula.com, wrote one minute, you're scouring Goldman Sachs. The next, you're doing PR for the richest man in the world. Funny.

It goes on and on and on.

They all said the same thing. They're doing -- he's doing PR work for the richest man in the world. So what they're doing is, he sold out.

But did Matt sell out?

I mean, Matt left the mainstream media for a reason. What was that reason?

Bari Weiss left the mainstream media for a reason. What was that reason?

What was it? To sell out? Or to be able to tell the truth, that they saw, without some editor going, nah. That Hunter Biden is not really a story. Because it's a conspiracy.

No. No. It turns out, that the FBI was lying to you. It wasn't a conspiracy.

It is a big deal. Now, Elon Musk has put the Democrats on notice. He said that there's more smoking guns, to come.

He also said, he's not going to sign autographs, anymore. And he doesn't -- he doesn't want to be in crowds anymore.

He's -- he's a little concerned for his health. And I don't think it's because he's a smoker. He believes that he's living in some sort of a spy novel. And I think he -- he might be.

By the way, according to the Daily Wire, it looks like they may have interfered at Twitter. May have interfered in the Brazilian election as well.

Interesting. It's almost as if, these public/private partnerships, between those who want to control the world, and those who are the mouthpiece for the world, are seeing the opportunity by coming together and working together to make sure that the little people know exactly who they should vote for, and what they should think.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Modern Scottish Warrior Goes 'BRAVEHEART' on Elites | Neil Oliver | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 171

Neil Oliver — a Scottish television presenter, historian, and author — is one of the courageous people willing to let his “no” mean “no.” At the height of his impressive career as a TV presenter, he realized the people promising the solutions to our problems are the same people responsible for them. But instead of bending the knee to the status quo, he became a modern “Braveheart” hero and defiantly said, “No,” to the tyranny of BLM, woke politics, and COVID lockdowns: “We're not extreme, THEY’RE extreme.” On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn talks to Neil about the difficulties he has experienced ever since he began standing up for what's right and details how you can stand up as well. They also dive into Neil’s fiery reactions to BLM, the rewriting of history, and the odd phenomenon of “excess deaths.” On any and all of it, Neil’s stance could not be any clearer: “I just believe in freedom.”

Glenn Breaks Down Bodycam Footage from Paul Pelosi Attack | Friday Exclusive | Ep 248

The bodycam footage of the attack on Paul Pelosi was finally released — over two months after the altercation occurred. But first, on today's Friday Exclusive, Glenn flashes back to the original, now-deleted, NBC News report that left us with more questions than answers. Then, he breaks down the recently released bodycam footage that some of America's most powerful seemingly tried to keep from going public. Finally, Glenn asks, "Why was this footage not immediately released when it could have cleared up all the confusion and controversies?" The lack of credibility and trust throughout society is getting out of control, and the delayed release of this footage may make it all worse.

Debunking Outrageous LIES from the New Hulu Series, ‘The 1619 Project’ | Ep 247

Remember this quote from George Orwell’s “1984”? “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The Left is trying to erase the truth of our past to control our lives NOW.

For example, did you know there was also a white, European slave trade? That Thomas Jefferson intended to get rid of slavery during America’s founding? That only two colonies voted against including the abolition of slavery in the Declaration of Independence? Glenn sets the record straight on some of the history forgotten by "The 1619 Project" — a “project” that evolved from “journalism” by Nikole Hannah-Jones of the New York Times into curriculum for school districts in all fifty states and into a documentary series airing on Hulu.

"The 1619 Project's" premise is that America was founded and built on slavery alone and continues to suffer because of this ultra-racist foundation. It dovetails perfectly with the critical race theory blanketing America’s education system, for which Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being raked over the coals this week after blocking a high school Advanced Placement course on African-American studies.

"The 1619 Project" is a political agenda dressed up as history and gets so many historical facts absolutely WRONG. Glenn takes you into the American Journey Experience vault to reveal artifacts from one of the largest private collections of pilgrim and Jamestown history. He’s joined by Elijah O’Neal, the head of the education department at the American Journey Experience, who brings the evidence to debunk the LIES about America being pumped out in the news, in our classrooms, and now in our living rooms.

Biden sends Ukraine TANKS. Does he WANT war with Russia?

Why would President Biden send U.S. tanks to Ukraine? Tanks are an offensive tool, not a defensive one, and this latest move from Biden (and Europe) will only bring us one step closer to World War 3 with Russia. In this clip, Glenn explains why this decision makes NO SENSE...unless there’s a reason Biden and the far-left may actually WANT to engage in war. And as we face the ‘inevitable’ fall of the West, Glenn explains, there is one, big reason why several global superpowers may want world conflict to cover their tracks…
