Glenn Beck – The Last Of A Five Day Series – The New Republic , Americas Future (day 5)

A Call to Action

Friday, August 28, 2009
By Glenn Beck

What a week.

The president said he was going to fundamentally transform America. Since January 20, he’s been racing full steam ahead toward doing just that. This week, can you feel a pivot point? Doesn’t it feel like, as a nation, we are waking up?

We’ve showed you some amazing, frightening facts and the White House hasn’t challenged any of it.

Unfortunately, I guess that means they agree with the information we’ve presented on people like green jobs “czar” Van Jones. He’s an avowed communist and radical activist who co-founded the communist group STORM — a group that describes themselves and their activities as:

“We upheld the Marxist critique of capitalist exploitation. We agree with Lenin’s analysis of the state and the party. And we found inspiration and guidance in the insurgent revolutionary strategies developed by third world revolutionaries like Mao Tse-Tung and Amilcar Cabral.”

//

The White House hasn’t bothered to even spin the information we presented on FCC diversity “czar” Mark Lloyd. This guy actually lamented the fact that non-state-run radio stations prevented the “incredible” revolution in Venezuela:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MARK LLOYD, FCC DIVERSITY CHIEF: In Venezuela, with Chavez, really an incredible revolution — a democratic revolution — to begin to put in place saying that we’re going to have impact on the people of Venezuela the property owners and the folks who were then controlling the media in Venezuela rebelled — work frankly with folks here in the U.S. government worked to oust him and came back and had another revolution. And Chavez then started to take the media very seriously in this country.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That pesky private sector! It’s just littered with that non-propaganda talk.

Lloyd has talked about balancing out the airwaves — and that’s not just conservatives, that’s everyone who doesn’t agree with the state. Again, the White House is not disputing any of this. That should frighten you. Especially in light of the story on Drudge today about the bill that would give Obama emergency control of the Internet. Wait, that sounds familiar… oh yeah, that’s “czar” Cass Sunstein’s idea.

How about the New York chair of the Apollo Alliance — the people who designed the stimulus package? His name is Jeff Jones. Before deciding who to give your tax money to, Jones co-founded the Weather Underground with Bill Ayers. The Weather Underground is a domestic terrorist group that came out of the communist revolutionary group Students for Democratic Society of the 1960s.

Does that bother the White House? Apparently not because they haven’t denied any of this, nor have they fired anyone or even denounced these radical backgrounds. And the radical Jones is currently helping New York spend more of the stimulus.

Yet, the White House does seem pretty concerned about you.

The Department of Homeland Security warned of the rise in “right-wing militia” groups — their report said if you are concerned about “legislation on tighter firearms” you could be in a “white supremacist militia movement.”

They are name-calling you.

Saul Alinsky’s big strategy was to take the enemy out of their comfort zone. Van Jones and all of these “czars” know this; they are radicals. To quote Van Jones: “We need to be about the whup-a**. Somebody’s f****ng up somewhere. They have names and job descriptions. You have to be creative about how you engage the enemy, because if you do it on his terms, the outcome is already known.”

You are fighting on their level. We’re taking it. We’re being called greedy hate-mongers who only care about profits whatever else and we cower.

Tonight, I am going to lay out a plan.

Step 1: Fear not and take them on.

We’ve been fighting on their terms — afraid to say anything. It’s time to forget that! Let’s make them uncomfortable with the facts:

— You think I want to starve inner-city children? Really? Let’s look at the policies where radical progressives have had control. The cities with the top 10 poverty rates in America have been run by Republicans only 8 percent of the time since 1965 and eight out of the 11 have been run by Democrats 100 percent of the time.

— Am I the one that hurts education? Washington, D.C., has long been controlled by progressives. They spend $15,000 per student (the national average is $10,000), yet they are still ranked among the worst in the country: Only 60 percent of the kids graduate and only 9 percent will complete college within five years of graduating.

— Am I reckless for supporting gun rights? In England they banned guns in 1998. For the next seven years, the number of deaths and injuries from gun crimes increased 340 percent — because, guess what, criminals aren’t going to wait on a background check on their way to shoot someone.

— I’m “unpatriotic” and “cold-hearted” and even part of “the mob” for opposing government-run health care? When was the last time, in America, you saw patients in hospitals so thirsty they had to drink water from the nearby plants or 4,000 new moms being forced to give birth in hallways because of a shortage of rooms or see someone have their supposedly removed spleen suddenly rupture? Because all of those things did happen in the U.K., where they do have government health care.

The argument isn’t about the facts anymore. When the shouters — on either side — are wrong, instead of admitting it, they just call you a hatemonger. They try and shame you into silence.

We need to screw our courage to the sticking place and, without fear, force them to face the tough questions — no matter what name you’re called or what threat you face because the truth shall set you free.

Sure, groups will come after you. If you disagree with man-made global warming the radicals will attack you and call you a flat-Earth believing, Holocaust-denying, selfish jerk who would rather drive an SUV than save the planet from certain destruction.

But the IPCC report that they so love to quote says the best way to fight global warming isn’t by getting a Prius, it’s by not eating meat. How many of your Earth-loving green friends are vegans? From here on out, when they start lecturing you about the planet, ask: Do you eat meat? Do you have leather shoes? If they say anything else other than “absolutely not,” tell them to sit down and shut up. And when they stop doing more supposed damage with their steak, then you can talk to me about my SUV.

And maybe we’ll also talk about the green jobs “czar,” who sees green jobs like this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VAN JONES, GREEN JOBS ‘CZAR’: We want a green economy that is strong enough to lift people out of poverty. We’re not leaving anybody behind. We don’t want an eco-elite economy.

We’re talking about people that don’t have a home. How do they get to be part of this green economy?

What good is a green economy if at the end of the day, it’s just eco-apartheid anyway?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Which is it: We need green jobs because the Earth has a temperature (like Al Gore said) or we need green jobs for social justice?

By the way, that’s Marxist code language. Social justice equals “take from him and give to him.”

America, don’t you see it? This isn’t about Republicans vs. Democrats. This is about Republicans and Democrats and Independents against radicals, revolutionaries and anti-capitalist nut jobs.

Almost all Americans love the Constitution and we may disagree with this policy or that, but the fundamental transformation — the change that 80 percent of America was looking for — was a driving out of the money changers — those in bed with special interests, global corporations, Wall Street fat cats and political party hacks.

In the coming weeks on this program I’m going to ask you to continue to watch with a piece of paper because I’m going to continue to expose these connections and plans that are out of step with almost everybody in this country — unless you live in the basement of Nancy Pelosi’s house in the most radically progressive neighborhood in the country while eating arugula and roast beef sandwiches!

But we’re also going to arm you with facts. It’s time to be unafraid and stop fearing name-calling, because sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.

And just so you know, for those of you who are working for this revolution at the White House and SEIU and ACORN and Americorps, you should go back and listen to The Beatles’ “White Album.” Listen to a song, co-written by your progressive friend, John Lennon — who got it.

Even during the peak of 1960s radicalism, the Beatles understood:

“You say you want a revolution.
Well, you know,
We all want to change the world.
You say you’ll change the Constitution,
Well, you know,
We all want to change your head.
You tell me it’s the institution,
Well, you know,
You better free your mind instead.
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao,
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow.
Don’t you know know it’s gonna be all right.”

In or Out 2010

Friday, August 28, 2009
By Glenn Beck

The first part of Friday’s show dealt with the loudmouths — the shouters — the folks who refuse to argue the facts and instead resort to intimidation and bumper-sticker slogan-esque arguments like: “He wants to starve cute cuddly kids without armpits! He hates poor people so much, he’d rather eat them then help them!”

No, I really don’t. And I don’t think they do either.

But the politicians they support keep enacting policies that don’t help the armpit-less kids. They instead, continue to hurt people and make them more dependent on government.

The second part of the problem is politicians. They toss-out red meat for the shouters to feast on and the result is: “He’s a shill for the GOP! He just hates Barack Obama!” And my favorite recurring Twitter comment: “Where were you during the Bush administration? He increased government too!”

I think it’s futile to answer this charge again, because those who levy it don’t listen or watch my shows anyway, so this will be the last time I respond to it:

I did say the same things about George W Bush.

I did complain about his out of control spending and debt.

I did complain about his failures on the border.

//

I did complain about his “abandoning free market principles to save the free market system.”

I did complain, constantly, as Bush presided over the largest increase in government since Lyndon B. Johnson.

Because I, apparently unlike many (on both sides), have actual principles and I choose to hold on to the truth before the party,

The “where were you?” argument says nothing about what’s going on today. That’s like an argument you’d hear at recess between a couple of third-graders; it distracts from any real conversation. If you are now suddenly pointing out George W. Bush’s big government policies (the same ones that you seem to love now), the third-grader in me would say, “Oh yeah? Where was your support for Bush while he was, just like Barack Obama, increasing the size of government and fascism?”

Stop looking through the partisan lens; both parties are screwing you over right now. They are using you. Ignore the R or the D next to their name and start supporting or opposing the politicians in a very different way: Look at what they believe.

Little thing I learned; a great man taught me: “Judge by the content of character.”

Here’s something I want you to send to every politician and demand an answer. And they are either in or out:

Dear Mr. Politician, yes or no:

1. I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized.

2. I believe government should not increase the financial burden on its citizenry during difficult economic times therefore I will oppose all tax increases until our economy has rebounded.

3. I believe more than four decades of U.S. dependence on foreign oil is a travesty therefore I will support an energy plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas, and coal as necessary.

4. I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why and I will vehemently oppose any measure giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity, power over U.S. citizens.

5. I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will not apologize for policies or actions which have served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet.

If your politician doesn’t believe, support or reflect these beliefs in their actions (not the little words they say), then they aren’t supporting you. More importantly, they aren’t supporting, protecting or defending the Constitution and it’s time to vote the bums out.

Make it very clear: You are either in or you are out.

Glenn Beck – The Fourth Of A Five Day Series – The New Republic , Americas Future (day 4)

Glenn Beck: Barack Obama’s Civilian Army

August 28, 2009 – 6:51 ET

Thursday’s show, I believe, it’s the most controversial of all the shows this week — and maybe ever.

I will give you some facts, some history but also some of the future.

The reason Thursday’s show is the last before Friday’s solution, I wanted you to see who was advising the president and what they are doing, before I could ask you to look at this phrase from Barack Obama and think he meant it literally:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

I don’t know how anyone will respond to the facts I am going to present, because they really haven’t responded to any of our questions or challenged any of the facts in our last few shows other than “Hey, don’t call him a ‘czar!’”

But I can’t make this piece of the puzzle fit, unless this piece is about building some kind of thug-ocracy.

All week we’ve been asking tough questions — here’s one more, Mr. President: Why do we need a civilian national security force that is “just as strong, just as powerful” as the military?

Here’s why I ask this question: Who are we fighting? Who internally is threatening our security?

It’s clearly not because we feel there is a threat from illegal aliens crossing the border, because anyone who would say that has been deemed a racist. A civilian national security force on the border is called The Minuteman and the attitude from this administration — as well as the Bush administration — is that they were “vigilantes.” So it’s not for the border.

It can’t be a civilian national security force against Islamic extremists, because according to this administration we aren’t even at war against Islamic extremists anymore. Is this administration really going to ask the American people to profile and call-in tips on Muslim Americans who act suspiciously?

So, who’s left? Is it possible we are seeing the beginnings of another enemy?

Mr. President, is your civilian national security force to protect us from things the Missouri State Police, your own Homeland Security and the liberal Southern Law Poverty Center have come out and said were a threat: militia groups; tea party goers; folks with “Don’t Tread on Me” flags; me; Sarah Palin?

Think about this: Is it unreasonable to think this government would ask you to spy on your neighbors, in light of these recent stories:

— Flag.gov e-mail asking for tips on “fishy” behavior

— Cookies on your computer that track whenever you’ve been on a government Web site — this used to be illegal but that was changed

— The government is using outside companies to track and contact you. Are they gathering information on you? I know that on “cash for clunkers” they didn’t trust the dealers.

To me, all of this sounds like a sci-fi movie, but again I have to ask the reasonable question, in these unreasonable times: Who will the civilian national security force protect us from?

Maybe a better question to ask is, Mr. President: Do you know of a coming event?

Or maybe we should ask Joe Biden, who said:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

THEN-VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOE BIDEN: Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America…. Remember I said it standing here, if you don’t remember anything else I said: Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Is this civilian national security force just preparing for what Joe Biden predicted?

Who builds an army against an unidentified, unrecognized threat? Because we can’t answer that question — or any of the others just proposed — then it’s up to us to look for clues.

Maybe we have to start with the company whose CEO is a close financial adviser to the president of the United States, who helped write the health care bill and cap-and-trade bill and who has billions of dollars at stake: Jeffrey Immelt.

Immelt has been appointed by president to the board of directors to the New York Federal Reserve. Does he have any information? Let’s look for what they may be saying the threat will be that we will need a civilian national security force against.

It would seem to me the network that sells “Yes We Did” dolls, mugs and t-shirts and is obviously extraordinarily close to the president in seven different ways — is it possible to watch their network and their news, to see if they have any inside information as to what this threat may be? Immelt’s network seems to be the leading network in predicting a lot of trouble, but they’re not alone:

(BEGIN VIDEO MONTAGE)

ED SCHULTZ RADIO SHOW: Folks, these people are psycho. That’s what they are. Sometimes I think they want Obama to get shot. I do. I really think that there are conservative broadcasters in this country who would love to see Obama taken out.

FRANK RICH, NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST: I’m just old enough, I was a kid, I remember I woke up in 1963 to the horrible events in Dallas. Even as a kid, I happened to be growing up in Washington, D.C., it was palatable to me all this hate talk about Kennedy and this sort of crazy fear…. But there were a lot of threats. There was a lot of stuff going on that in tone resembles this.

SEN. BARBARA BOXER, D-CALIF.: All of this is a diversion by the people who want to, frankly, hurt President Obama. And by the way I saw some of the clips of people storming these townhall meetings. The last time I saw well-dressed people doing this, was when Al Gore asked me to go down to Florida when they were recounting the ballots, and I was confronted with the same type of people. They were there screaming and yelling, “Go back to California! Get out of here!” and all the rest of it.

CONTESSA BREWER, MSNBC: “A man at a pro-health care reform rally just outside, wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip…. The Associated Press reports about a dozen people in all at that event were visible carrying firearms…. There are questions about whether this has racial overtones. I mean, here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists.

(END VIDEO MONTAGE)

Is it reasonable to ask the question — based on these clips — do they think that a good portion of the American people are the enemy? They are such a danger we need a civilian national security force as well-funded and well-trained as the military?

That’s who they think the enemy is and, once again, the media has it completely wrong.

So who is the real enemy?

“Common Sense” has been No. 1 for the last 10 weeks. One of the last chapters is “The Enemy Within” — I wrote it months ago. It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out — let me give you this quote:

“It’s not just the political class who has mastered the art of deception. There are other potentially deadly masters who will seek to exploit your frustration and sense of desperation. Many will warn you of government tyranny; they’ll talk of secret societies, vast conspiracies, shadow governments, and the need for violent action. I urge you to stay away from these individuals and those ideas.”

We’ve showed you the radicals in this administration. Now I’ll show you the radicals outside the administration who are being used and will be used by the media and by this administration:

There was the Obama Joker poster creator; the right tried to take advantage of this and added the word “socialist” under it. But the creator of the poster is a Kucinich supporter who doesn’t like Obama because he’s not left enough.

Then there was that clip on MSNBC: The racist white person (according to MSNBC) who brought a rifle to the Obama town hall — wasn’t even white! He was black.

In Denver, Maurice Joseph Schwenkler and an at-large accomplish smashed in windows at the Democratic Party HQ in Denver. Both parties accused Schwenkler of supporting the other, but he’s a “trans-gendered anarchist” who belongs to the radical anarchist protest group Denver Bash Back.

While the radicals in the White House may not be connected to the radicals just mentioned, they are connected by the fact that they are radicals.

Remember, Obama adviser “czar” Jones created STORM who believes: “Revolutionaries need to be militant in street actions. As leaders in the fight for liberation, we should be role models of fearlessness before the state and the oppressor.”

These are the sort of tactics some of Obama’s “czars” know best.

So when we’ve got a president creating a “civilian force” as strong as the military and an admitted far-left radical in the White House doing this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VAN JONES, GREEN JOBS ‘CZAR’: Actually, my job is not so dissimilar than my job was before…. What I do, can I make it simple, I’m basically a community organizer with the federal family.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

How else am I supposed to read this? I’m happy to hear any other explanation than “don’t call him a czar.”

Glenn Beck – The Third Of A Five Day Series – The New Republic , Americas Future (day 3)

Glenn Beck: Speak Without Fear

August 27, 2009 – 0:04 ET

We’re halfway through the week and here are just a few of the things we’ve learned so far:

Congress, beyond not reading these bills, is not even writing these bills. They are being written by a vast network that is not conspiratorial — it is completely out and wide open — yet the media refuses to report on them.

Organizations that are filled with socialists, communists, revolutionaries. Organizations that pull their members from legitimate businesses, politicians and from groups that most Americans have never heard of, like Movement for a Democratic Society — a group started by members of the Communist Party USA, other radicals and Socialists of America.

I have demonstrated these radicals are not only instrumental in shaping legislation that’s being jammed through, but are also — by invitation — personally advising the president of the United States.

And again the media remains silent.

These are facts — not opinions. I want to point out the silence; no one has challenged these facts — they just attack me personally.

Day 3 and the White House remains silent. Yet they have e-mailed my show during the broadcast, only to refute that these people are not “czars,” they are “special advisers.” One would think if all of this weren’t true, they would worry about the labels “communist” or “revolutionary,” not “special adviser.”

I’ve also showed you the framework that — to quote Barack Obama — is “fundamentally transforming America.” But this is much bigger than Barack Obama. Powerful special interest groups began to lay this framework over the last few years.

Remember the Green Jobs Act during the Bush administration? Many on Capitol Hill voted for it because they claimed it was unfunded with meaningless language, tucked into a 900-page bill. Heck, it only asked for $125 million (requested by the special interest group, the Apollo Alliance).

Now, that meaningless, unfunded, green act doesn’t have $125 million, but rather $500 million that was — to use green jobs “czar” Van Jones’ word — “smuggled” into the stimulus bill.

That money is now being funneled by Van Jones (a self-proclaimed revolutionary communist) to organizations and programs of his design and choosing. Oh, and he sits on the board of the Apollo Alliance.

What new “harmless compromises” do we have to look forward to in the health care bills with these radical wolves that are about to devour our republic?

I’ve told you the three mottos that I have personally adopted: Question with boldness; hold to the truth, and speak without fear.

This information is not being reported on just because the media can’t be piece together quickly enough what is happening or they somehow agree with this revolutionary agenda — but fear also plays a big role. People have too much to lose.

As a recovering alcoholic, I’ve already lost everything once; I’m better and stronger for it. I didn’t need a bailout; I needed to rediscover my principles. I’ve told my audience for years after I sobered up that I was a dirt-bag — I try my hardest not to be now, but I still make mistakes. They can take my job or my wealth — that’s OK because I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor. But I was only truly miserable when I was lying to myself or others. And because some of those principles that I’ve rediscovered and applied to my life are the founding principles of this country.

I know that even if the current powers that be succeed in making me poor again, I will only be stronger for it. And American ingenuity will find another way to get this message out on a platform 1,000 times more powerful.

Because of my faith, I know how this story ends: America prepare to witness mighty, powerful miracles in your lifetime.

I am going to offer up evidence that part of the strategy of the fundamental transformation of America is to silence dissent.

Let me show you one of the most diabolical hidden parts of the plan, that quite honestly when I finished my research on it last week, I wrote to a friend that for the first time, I am truly frightened.

It involves the new diversity “czar” at the FCC.

I have told you for a long time: Pay no attention to the Fairness Doctrine that would shut down voices like mine on the radio or voices like mine and Bill O’Reilly on TV. It’s too obvious. They will do it through what’s called “localism” and “diversity.” The final piece of the argument will be against these giant corporate broadcast groups that have too much power (one of which will never be G.E.)

This has been my warning and my theory. A week and a half ago, I began to look into our FCC diversity “czar” Mark Lloyd. In his 2006 book, “Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America,” Lloyd wrote:

“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press…. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration…. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.”

Freedom of speech… is a distraction?

Localism boards are being created. Our diversity “czar” has just proposed that radio companies pay 100 percent of their operating budget, yearly. A 100 percent tax which would then be transferred to the state-run radio of NPR. If you can’t pay that, you’d lose your license and it would be sold to minority group.

(In a completely unrelated fact, the FCC just approved the sale of another radio station — this one on Long Island — to ACORN.)

Speak without fear.

On global warming, people didn’t speak because they didn’t want to be seen as a Holocaust denier or a flat-Earther. So they passed “harmless legislation.” Now we have half a billion dollars in the hands of a communist revolutionary, who describes his job as:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VAN JONES, GREEN JOBS CZAR: What I do, to kinda make it simple, I’m basically a community organizer inside the federal government.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

And now because no one in their right mind is against diversity, people will be afraid of being called a racist or a bigot or a hatemonger.

Speak without fear or more “harmless legislation” will be passed and you will not be able to speak and you will experience the kind of fear that no one in this country has experienced before. All it will take is an “emergency.”

God help us all.

Watch It For Free! Windows Media Player

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

BECK: Now joining me on the phone is radio talk show host Mr. Rush Limbaugh. Rush?

RUSH: Glenn Beck. How are you, sir?

BECK: Very good, sir. I want to play something for you. I don’t know if you just saw it, but I want to play it again. This is the new diversity officer for the FCC, a newly created position. This is what he said at a speech or talk he was giving about Chavez’s Venezuela and how the media work down there. Watch this.

MARK LLOYD: In Venezuela, with Chavez, you really had an incredible revolution — democratic revolution — to begin to put in place things that were going to have impact on the people of Venezuela. The property owners and the folks who were then controlling the media in Venezuela rebelled — worked, frankly, with folks here in the US government — worked to oust him. He came back and had another revolution, and Chavez then started to take the media very seriously in his country.

BECK: Rush, I find that breathtaking.

RUSH: I find the whole administration breathtaking, Glenn. You’re doing great job this whole week. I mean I saw Sarah Palin even “tweeted” about what you’re doing, urging people to watch. This whole administration is as radical and far left as any that the country has ever had, and what they’re trying to do here to communications is simply stifle dissenting voices. They’re trying to wipe out any opposition. If you look at Barack Obama and his track record as a politician, it is to clear the playing field. He doesn’t even like debating his opponents. He just wants to get rid of them. And this “diversity czar” comes from a fringe, radical, Saul Alinsky-type of background; and the things that he’s talking about doing — and I watched your show for the first half hour today — but the things he’s talking about doing to shut down radio are simply un-American. It’s not enough to say that it’s not constitutional.

It’s simply un-American, and make no bones about it, folks, Glenn is right — and I think he’s maybe underselling a little bit about as far as their intentions are concerned. The stimulus plan! Glenn, look at what they’re doing to the US economy. Anybody with a sense of economic literacy would know this is not how you create jobs. You do not rebuild the private sector. This is being done on purpose. All of these disasters are exactly what Obama wants. The more crises, the better. The more opportunity for government to say, “Let us come in and fix the problem.” His number one opposition is on radio and Fox News. His number one opposition is on radio. They can’t go Fairness Doctrine because it’s too obvious. So they’re trying to do this backdoor route with “diversity” and ownership, a 100% tax on operating in order to pay public radio because they’re supposedly fair. It’s insidious. But I don’t think it’s gonna work in the end because the American people are too informed, Glenn. They’re too aware of it. Their radio means too much to them. Their free speech — freedom in general — means way too much to them. And just as they’re fighting back on health care and a number of other things, so will they fight back on this.

BECK: Rush, tomorrow on this program I’m going to lay out the case of the army that they are building right underneath our nose, an army that he spoke about on the campaign trail. If you watch what could only be called the organizations — or the administration’s organ — anything involved with GE or NBC; you’ve got now Jeffrey Immelt on the board of the Federal Reserve, you have in the Oval Office consulting not only on health care but the financial situation, and they are an organ. If you watch MSNBC, I contend that you will see the future, because they are laying the ground for a horrible event that will be… What they’re laying the ground for, anything from the right some awful event — and I fear this government, this administration, has so much framework already prepared that they will seize power overnight before anybody even gives it a second thought.

RUSH: Well, I think because of what you’re doing with your television show, your radio show — what we’re all doing here — I don’t think they’re going to be able to seize it overnight without anybody knowing about it. You talk about the organized groups that they’ve got. Let’s look at the health care situation, what’s happening right now. The genuine passion, the real passion is in individual Americans’ hearts and minds. Individuals are showing up. They may be going to the Web to find out where these town halls are, but they’re showing up because individually they don’t want any part of this. The Obama army has to be bought and paid for. The Obama army has to be given marching orders.

BECK: Right.

RUSH: The Obama army is not showing up with any passion for Obama’s issue, which is health care. They’re showing up because they’ve been instructed to by bosses. Now, this army that you’re going to reveal tomorrow is probably going to be much the same way — and I’m going to tell you something, Glenn. Passion, love of country –

BECK: I know.

RUSH: — truth is going to outmaneuver and overpower fake passion, trumped-up people who are just given marching orders and sent out to act in a certain way. You know, we may be looking at Barack Obama destroying the Democrat Party. It’s too soon to say that now, but we may be looking at that happen. There are reasons for optimism, but you are right: It is a dangerous time. It’s the most dangerous time in my life for freedom and liberty in this country.

BECK: I will tell you, a lot of people would say, “Well, that’s Rush Limbaugh. He’s… You know, this is hyperbole,” et cetera, et cetera. Would you agree with me, Rush, that this is not conservatives or Republicans or independents talking about this because they don’t like Rush — they don’t like Barack Obama. These are Americans. I’m an American. I’m speaking to you as an American. This is bad for anyone unless you’re in the power circle. You don’t want to go down this road with what they’re proposing with the FCC.

RUSH: No. Well, I don’t want to go down the road with anything they’re proposing on anything, Glenn. But you ask an interesting question. You know are people going to react to me simply because, “Well, it’s hyperbole. It’s what these guys do”? My first hour yesterday was chronicling how this man is systematically dismantling our ability to gather intelligence to protect ourselves against an attack. He is purposely using his attorney general to make the United States the villain of the world — and I’m going to tell you, folks: from the bottom of my heart, I am uncomfortable thinking and saying these things about a man who’s been elected president of the United States. It is terribly upsetting and disconcerting, and I wish I didn’t think it and I wish I didn’t have to say it. But there’s no way to sugarcoat it. This is not politics as usual. This is not left versus right. This is not Republican versus Democrat. This is statism, totalitarianism versus freedom. And if these people are allowed to go where they want to go unchecked, then some people, a lot of people — I don’t think half the country, but close — will wake up one day and find, “My God, what the hell happened?” Because this is not what they voted for. They had no intention of this. They thought they were getting something entirely different and it is a responsibility that we all have being honest and earnest to inform people of what these possibilities are because they are very real.

BECK: More with Rush Limbaugh next.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

LLOYD: In Venezuela, with Chavez, you really have an incredible revolution — democratic revolution — to begin to put in place things that were going to have impact on the people of Venezuela. The property owners and the folks who were then controlling the media in Venezuela rebelled — worked, frankly, with folks here in the US government — worked to oust him. He came back and had another revolution, and Chavez then started to take the media very seriously in his country.

BECK: America, I want to… First of all I want to thank the watchdog for bringing that video to my attention. You can be a watchdog. Just tweet me whenever you see things like this. But I have to ask you an honest effort here. I need you to scour the Internet and look for all the people involved with this government giving speeches and listen to them, and then pull them off and archive them yourself. Pull them off onto your own computer, because I think things could get scrubbed quickly. We’re back with radio talk show host Mr. Rush Limbaugh. Rush, when I see this comment from him — and yesterday, we were, you know, all on Van Jones — an avowed communist, self-avowed communist, Marxist, revolutionary –

RUSH: Right.

BECK: — advising the president of the United States. [John] Holdren, our science czar. He comes out and he says that you don’t have a right to, you know, a number of children. If you want to have three children, there’s no right in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence if the government says there’s only two children. Where is the true outrage from anyone in the media? Why are these things not grabbing traction at this point?

RUSH: Well, that doesn’t surprise me at all. I think the whole concept of reporting has gone out the window. I call them the State-Controlled Media because it’s what they are. They’re just repeaters. They take dictation from Rahm Emanuel for the most part, and they simply run with it. It’s who they are, too. They think, Glenn, at the end of all this that they are going to be in the elite circle. They think they’re going to be untouched by any of this. They think the Fairness Doctrine attack, or the attack on radio, is going to leave them alone. My father used to tell me when I was growing up and my brother when he was trying to warn me of the threat posed by Soviet communism and he told me about the media, he said, “These people are such fools. Don’t they understand they’re going to be the first ones shut up if this kind of thing ever happens in this country?” I think it’s just hero worship. I think these people, a lot of people come out of the civil rights era. This presidency is symbolic to them; it’s historical. They’re not reporting — in fact, Glenn, this is a great point. How is it that people know what’s in the health care bill? The press isn’t telling them. How is it that people know some of the plans the administration has? The Drive-By Media is not telling anybody anything — and they are discombobulated. I saw Chuck Todd the other day go ballistic because too many people are doing news now that are not journalists, that are not qualified and they’re reflecting people’s opinions on the media and so forth. These people, it’s embarrassing. I think they’ve met their Waterloo and their Waterloo is Obama.

BECK: When I warned on the Patriot Act — which I was for as long as it had serious sunsets and as many booby traps in that thing as possible. I warned at the time I was really conflicted because you don’t want to give a government this kind of power. The kind of power that this government has right now is staggering! Rush, they tried to go after you with Timothy McVeigh and tried to enact all of these things. Is it different now? Are you at all fearful or do you have any fear that these things will come to pass?

RUSH: Well, I do, and I take it seriously that they’re going to try. But, you know, Glenn, they’ve tried a number of things with me over the years. You mentioned McVeigh. They tried to blame me, Clinton did, for the Oklahoma City bombing. They’ve routinely gone after me but they haven’t been able to shake anything away and the reason is the bond of loyalty that I have with my audience.

BECK: Mmm-hmm.

RUSH: I have total credibility with the audience. It’s an audience that continues to grow despite all of the new conservative shows on radio and television, and all of us in conservative media have that bond with our audience. The effort to discredit us is always going to fail. It will always fail as long as we remain true to who we are and don’t disappoint our audiences in any way in terms of substance and being serious about what we really believe. So I’m confident that this can be beaten back. If I weren’t, you know what, Glenn? I’d pack it all in and I’d spend my money before they take it and I’d go enjoy the rest of what my life is gonna be, but I –

BECK: That’s quite a shopping spree. Can I come with you? (laughing)

RUSH: (laughing)

BECK: All right.

RUSH: There’s plenty of room.

BECK: Mr. Limbaugh, thank you very much. I appreciate your time.

RUSH: It’s always a pleasure, Glenn. Thanks for having me.

BECK: Thank you.

RUSH: And one of these days we gotta do this on camera. I lost all this weight. I gotta show the people.

BECK: I… I would… I think he’s hitting on me!

RUSH: (laughing)

BECK: I think he’s saying, “I’m a sexy, sexy man.” Rush, thank you very much. We’ll talk to you again.

Glenn Beck – The Second Of A Five Day Series – The New Republic , Americas Future (day 2)

Glenn Beck: Know! Your! Czars!

VOICE: It’s time for another episode of everyone’s favorite show, Know! Your! Czars!

GLENN: Yes, that’s right. As I told you yesterday, the White House is very upset with me and the information that I’ve been giving out all week on the czars. They are not denying things like, you know, Van Jones’ history as an admitted radical communist and the fact that he’s never disavowed that. They’re upset that we’re calling him a czar. That’s their complaint. I’ve shown the history of a guy who is literally founding revolutionary communist organizations around America and they don’t like what I have been putting on his virtual business card. He’s not a czar. He’s a special advisor.

Yesterday the liberal blogs became very upset with this little old radio segment on the radio. Why? Shocking surprise: They had the exact same complaint as the White House. Yesterday in this segment I called Peter Orszag the budget czar. The budget czar. Weird how the White House and liberal blogs are worried about the same thing at exactly the same time. But at least they’re consistent because I’m sure you can remember the outrage on the left when the Christian Science Monitor was calling him the budget czar. Or when CNN was calling him the budget czar. Or all of that incredible outrage from the left when Rachel Maddow called him the budget czar during an interview with the budget czar. Oh, and do you remember the picket lines on the left when Business Week was using the term budget czar under the Bush administration, or the left just hated it when Bush was treated unfairly. I think I’ve hit a new high point here. I can get attacked from the left even when I’m quoting Rachel Maddow. That is impressive.

Anyway, let’s get to today’s czar. He’s the sort of guy who understands a really good meal although, you know, he can be a bit of a downer at a dinner party. You know, when you grill up a nice steak on the grill, when it’s seasoned and sizzling just in that perfect way. And when you slowly place those grilled onions right on top. Yes?

STU: I have a guess.

GLENN: Yes?

STU: Is it Bobby Flay?

GLENN: No, it’s not. Sorry, I don’t think you guys understand what a czar is. Is it ‑‑ no? Even Rachel Maddow understands that. Anyway, you have this pile of perfectly sizzling steak smothered with grilled onions. You walk over to the table and set them down right there on the…

STU: Right. Is it Emeril Legasse?

GLENN: It’s not time to ‑‑

PAT: Bam!

GLENN: So you have this steak, you bring it to the table and this is where that czar is sitting during the dinner party. And he’s likely to say something like this:

(Audio plays)

GLENN: Okay. In case you missed what he was saying there, and applauded for, was quoting our willingness to subject animals to unjustified suffering will be seen as a form of unconscionable barbarity, morally akin to slavery and the mass extermination of human beings. Can anybody pass the A‑1?

Okay. Do you know the name of the czar? Yes? Stu?

STU: Is it Paula Deen?

GLENN: Ooh, sorry, sorry. No, the name of the czar.

PAT: Chef Boyardee?

GLENN: Okay, no, it’s not. Today’s czar is Cass Sunstein, our fabulous regulatory czar. Will surely his comparison between your steak and the Holocaust couldn’t possibly leak into his job writing just about every regulatory control we have on pretty much everything. But at least you’ll know what’s coming when you know your czars ‑‑ I’m sorry, sorry, when you ‑‑ when you know your special, special ‑‑ I got it, I got it. When you know your special advise‑czars.

VOICE: Ooh, sorry. Just like everyone who plays this game, you lose. But at least you’ll die a little smarter just for listening to… Know! Your! Czars!

GLENN: By the way, do we have the Bill Maher audio from yesterday? You remember yesterday Bill Maher had just a burst of honesty from the left. He said that Obama should just force healthcare through, whether people wanted it or not because they were too stupid. Listen up.

MAHER: But yeah, I mean, you know, they’re talking about 60 votes. Forget this stuff, 60. They can’t get Americans to agree on anything, 60%. 60% of people don’t believe that evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they’re stupid. Just drag them to this. Get healthcare done, you know, with or without them. Make the gang of six an offer they can’t refuse. This Max Baucus guy, he needs to wake up tomorrow with an intern’s head in his bed.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Whew. We’re just too stupid to understand it. And then what we should do is we should make an offer the gang of six can’t refuse. And if that’s not mob enough for you, then we should just have somebody wake up with an intern’s head in their bed.

Now, the clip from Rachel Maddow where she called the budget czar a budget czar, we were looking for this yesterday because the White House is upset with me, and the liberal media is upset with me for calling czars czars. The budget czar in particular has come up from the White House and now from the liberal press. Well, the budget czar, when she called him the budget czar, has another moment of honesty, although not quite as blunt. Listen up.

STU: Actually this is a transcript here, Glenn.

GLENN: We don’t have the audio?

STU: There’s no audio on this one.

GLENN: Okay, here it is. The brewing conservative attack on this new budget is that you’re soaking the rich to pay for all of the spending, that sort of reverse class warfare, to pay for the spending and to pay for this sort of down payment on healthcare plans. What is your response to that both politically and as a budget czar? Orszag says, well, this is exactly what the president campaigned on: Soaking the rich to pay for all this. That’s exactly what the president campaigned on. Again as we emerge from the recession, we are ‑‑ we need to get these deficits under control. That’s going to require some shared sacrifice. Again this is fully consistent with what the president campaigned on. There’s the budget czar, as Rachel Maddow called him, basically admitting that they ran their campaign on soaking the rich. Well, they ain’t lying. They told all of us this was gonna happen before he was elected. They told us that they were going to fundamentally transform America, and they are. Now, we deserve the government that we get. Are we awake enough now to make new choices?

    Day one from Glenn Beck:

    Where is the discussion on all this “change” that’s happening in Washington?

    Am I hateful if I ask:

    Can we survive this debt? If so, how?
    What is the rush on healthcare? Cap and trade?
    Who is writing these bills?
    Will Washington READ and Understand these bills?
    Why is it grassroots if you’re for it and astroturfing if you’re against it?

    He’s right. There were members of congress just today who insinuated that these types of questions being asked about public policy were based in hate, bigotry and racism. Questioning your government is not only important, but in a democratic republic, it is required!
