Show 1613 The Mark Levin Show. Ameritopia

Mark Levin quotes from his book Ameritopia- The Unmaking of America

Overview of the book- Mark R. Levin's Liberty and Tyranny made the most persuasive case for conservatism and against statism in a generation. In this most crucial time, this leading conservative thinker explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects, and its modern day disciples—and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it.

In Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them? In the end, Levin's message is clear: The American republic is in great peril. The people must now choose between utopianism or liberty.

Show 1612  Slavery and the Founders- The Four-Part Series By The Glenn Beck Program

America’s Founding Fathers, admired and revered by generations of grateful Americans, have been increasingly disparaged over the past 100 years. The progressive left would have you believe the Founders were all rich, white, uncaring, racist slave owners — but the truth is something entirely different. What did the Founding Fathers think about slavery? Were they all slave owners who refused to free their slaves? This definitive four-part series on the Founders and slavery sets the record straight.

Slavery and the Founders Part I: Thomas Jefferson Fifty-six Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. Of those 56, we know that 15 owned slaves and did not release them, nor did they want to. This minority of Founders is what we would call, in effect, racist. So what about the other Founders, those who did not own slaves or those who did but wanted to free them? Thomas Jefferson, in particular, has been singled out as a hypocrite who spoke against slavery, but didn’t free his own slaves upon his death. Why? Let’s begin with the obvious: America’s Founding Fathers grew up in colonial America under English tradition and English rule. The colonies were an extension of Great Britain. It was the British, not our Founders, who brought slaves to this continent, and they did so for about 140 years. Thomas Jefferson, who grew up in 1700s Virginia where landowners owned slaves, began inheriting slaves at 14 years old. Even so, as he matured and considered the issue, Thomas Jefferson became decidedly anti-slavery. So why didn’t Jefferson end slavery in his own home? State law in Virginia was very clear, and Jefferson wrote about it, saying the laws would not permit him to “turn them loose.” One law regarding slavery stated that if there was debt, slaves could not be freed and must be held to pay off that debt. Jefferson was, in today’s dollars, $2.5 million in debt. So by state law, he could not free his slaves. Black civil rights leaders from multiple eras — Benjamin Beneker who personally knew Jefferson, Henry Highland Garnet, Frederick Douglass and Martin Luther King Jr. — praised Jefferson for his relentless efforts to end slavery. When he was elected to the legislature of Virginia and took office in 1769, one of the first measures he introduced, along with senior legislature Richard Bland, was to end slavery in the entire state of Virginia. They were severely chastised for the measure with a clear message: You will not speak out against slavery — but Jefferson continued to do so. He went to court on two occasions and fought for slaves to receive freedom, pointing out that all men were created equal with equal rights under their creator. When he was elected to the Continental Congress, he introduced a measure to end slavery in all of the United States. That measure fell by one vote. In his diary and memoir, Jefferson lamented that slavery did not end: Oh, to God, that he would have changed one heart. What one heart, one vote of one man would have done. Jefferson sought measure after measure, both at the state and national level, to end slavery. He even became involved in international efforts to end slavery. Two weeks before his death, Jefferson was still saying slavery had to end.

Slavery and the Founders Part II: George Washington America’s Founders are often painted as selfish, hypocritical and evil because, while men like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington spoke out against slavery, they both owned slaves. It’s forgotten that these men from the 18th century are being judged by 21st century sensibilities. Additionally, slavery was instituted and engrained in colonial society by the British. The Founders were simply recipients of a system that had been in place for well over a century. It was the British who stopped the original abolition movement in America. In 1773 and 1774, states like Rhode Island and Connecticut and Massachusetts and Pennsylvania passed anti-slavery laws. But in 1774, King George III vetoed every anti-slavery law in America. That’s what caused Thomas Jefferson to write a clause in the Declaration which favored ending slavery (three southern states demanded it be removed). When America separated from Great Britain in 1776, those states were the first ones to end slavery. Once America was free from the British empire, the ending of slavery began. By 1800, every northern colony had abolished slavery in America. George Washington and the other Founders who favored abolition knew they could not immediately end slavery in the United States and still have a United States. They would have instantly lost all of the Southern colonies, weakened the union and wound up without a nation. That’s why Washington favored a gradual or, shall we say, “progressive” end to slavery. Despite having inherited his first ten slaves when he was 11 years old, Washington grew to despise the practice. Upon his marriage to Martha Custis, Washington took possession of many more slaves. Martha was a widow when she married her second husband, George, and she brought to the marriage close to 100 dowry slaves. Washington argued and fought from the very beginning to end slavery, with no success in the legislature. When his and Martha’s slaves began marrying and forming families, his hands were further tied, as he refused to sell slaves and break up families. He waited until his death and Martha’s to free his slaves saying, “You can’t free the slaves till after I die and till after she dies. Because once we’re both dead, then you can keep the families together.” Historian David Barton further explains: He could have made a ton of money if he could have sold his slaves, because he says it takes me twice as much to feed them as I make off the land. But he said, “I refuse to sell slaves. I refuse to participate in that practice of selling slaves. It’s wrong.” So he goes broke, rather than practice something that goes against his conscience, which is selling slaves. And he would not free his slaves because that would separate families. And Virginia law, of course, did not recognize slave families or slave marriages, but he did. And that’s why he took those families. He paid them for what they raised. He paid them for what they did. He did not treat them like slaves. He treated them like family, which is why, after he released them, the blacks for so long came back and took care of Mount Vernon, took care of his grave, took care of Martha’s grave, because they so loved him. He was like a father figure to them. Phyllis Wheatley, a 22-year-old slave and poet was so impressed with the respect and kindness Washington had shown her that she wrote a poem — His Excellency General Washington — to honor the man she so greatly admired when he was made commander in the Continental Army in 1775. Washington responded by inviting Ms. Wheatley to his headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he received her as if she were a visiting dignitary. In a time when the world was just emerging from languishing in the Dark Ages for over 1,000 years, dozens of enlightened men, certainly not perfect men, but definitely brilliant, inspired and enlightened, laid the foundation for what would become the greatest hope ever offered to mankind. And they dealt with the complicated nightmare of slavery as best they could. There were barriers put in place that had to be chipped away, piece by piece. It was President George Washington who set the tone and example, leading the way to end slavery.

Slavery and the Founders Part III: Benjamin Franklin Critics of the Founders point to the three-fifths clause in the United States Constitution, which counted blacks as three-fifths of a person, as proof of their racism. To use this as proof of the Founders’ hatred for black people shows a painful lack of knowledge. The three-fifths clause had nothing to do with the worth of the human being. The argument in question was over the census and counting people in various states for Congressional representation and taxation. Many southern delegates argued that slaves, as their property, should be counted as a full person. Why? Because that would increase their representation in Congress, and thus their power and ability to keep slavery intact. The northern delegates who sought the eventual end to slavery knew that more representation meant more power for the south. And if they allowed that, slavery may never end. The compromise was the three-fifths clause. During the constitutional convention of 1787, the slavery debate threatened to derail any attempts to form a new government. The southern states would not have entered the Union if slave trade had been abolished. Thus, the delegates agreed to end the slave trade in 1808. James Madison wrote, “Great as the evil is, a dismemberment of the Union would be worse.” The Founders put an end to the slave trade in 1808. From the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791 to 1808, the slave trade lasted a total of 17 years in the United States of America. Ending slavery altogether would take a civil war and the lives of 600,000 Americans, 57 years later. In the early 1770s, before America declared independence from England, two Founding Fathers — Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Rush — tried to eliminate slavery from the American continent. Franklin’s journey towards abolitionism had started ten years earlier with a visit to a school for black children, created by the Reverend Thomas Bray. For Franklin, it was an eyeopener, and he financially backed the Bray Associate School in Philadelphia. Historian David Barton explains: While Pennsylvania was still a British colony, Pennsylvania passed an anti-slavery law, but King George III vetoed that law passed by Pennsylvania. At that point in time, in 1774, Ben Franklin joins with fellow Pennsylvanian, also soon to be signer of the Declaration, Benjamin Rush, and they start the first Abolition Society in Pennsylvania. It was an act of civil disobedience against King George III. He said, “You can’t end slavery.” They said, “Watch us.” But Franklin had already taken actions well before that. Back in 1768, Ben Franklin had joined with Francis Hopkins, who was also soon to be a signer of the Declaration, and they started a chain of schools across Pennsylvania and across New England for black Americans. And it was to teach black Americans the Bible and academics. Now, that doesn’t seem all that notable today, but it was then. Because under British policy, you were not to be educating blacks. Because if you educate blacks, they don’t make good slaves. And, by the way, if you teach them to read, they’re probably going to read the Bible because that was the book. And if they read the Bible, they’ll probably end up praying. And if they end up praying, you know what they’re going to pray for, is an end of slavery. And that’s just not a good thing, to have an educated slave. So under British policy, you tried to avoid education for slaves. Now, that was carried forth in America in the southern states. And at the time of the civil war, it was a capital offense to teach a black to read. If a white person taught a black person to read, you both got kill. That was a capital offense. Benjamin Franklin, president of the Pennsylvania anti-slavery society, thought differently and wanted to see blacks educated. When the first Congress of the United States convened in 1789, Ben Franklin introduced a petition asking Congress to abolish slavery. He died shortly after in 1790, without seeing his efforts to end slavery come to fruition. But he was one of the many Founding Fathers who worked to end slavery in America, recognizing that civil rights came from God’s creation, that all men were created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, including life and liberty. Franklin realized that being in bondage as a slave, having no free will, being governed by fear, and most likely abused on a regular basis, would take its toll on its victims. So he not only fought to free slaves, but also set up a way to help once they were freed. Franklin and his friends decided to expand the activity of their Abolition Society to include assistance in the immediate post-slavery period, helping former slaves make the transition to freedom by providing advice, assistance in finding jobs, educating children and learning how to exercise and enjoy their new civil liberties. He did all of this with private funds and private effort and without any government interference or intervention.

Slavery and the Founders Part IV: Abolitionists Just as some Americans refuse to believe that America’s Founders built this nation on Christian-Judeo principles, there are those who can’t accept they also did their best to set up the eventual abolition of slavery. The laws of the time prohibited owners from freeing their slaves. These men were playing with the hand they were dealt, until such a time they could figure out a way to obtain a new deck of cards, a new set of laws — without toppling the game itself. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson Tried to abolish slavery by including abolition in the original Declaration of Independence. Delegates took it out. Ben Franklin Opposed the practice of slavery and sought to end it, eventually becoming president of a Philadelphia abolition society. George Mason The second largest slaveholder in Fairfax County after George Washington and a long-time abolitionist. At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, 1787, he said, “Every master of slaves is born a petty tyrant. Slaves bring the judgment of heaven on a country, as nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world. They must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities.” Mason, widely regarded as the father of the Bill of Rights, refused to sign the Constitution, in large part because it did not specifically and immediately end slavery. John Jay Revolutionary war hero and author of several of the Federalist Papers. He eventually became the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. As governor of New York, he signed legislation to abolish slavery in his state. Benjamin Rush Signer of the Declaration of Independence and member of the Continental Congress who was an early advocate for ridding the nation of slavery. He published an influential anti-slavery pamphlet in 1773. No discussion of slavery, the Founders and abolitionists would be complete without mentioning some of the black heros who were Founders themselves of the anti-slavery movement. Harriet Tubman Born into slavery in 1822 in Maryland, she was routinely whipped and beaten by her owner, sustaining a serious head injury that caused health issues for the rest of her life. Tubman was a devout Christian and a fearless freedom firefighter. She escaped slavery in 1849, at the age of 27, and immediately headed back to Maryland time after time to rescue members of her own family and lead them to freedom. Tubman became an important member of the Underground Railroad, a network of blacks and whites who used secret routes and safe houses to help blacks escape slavery. During the Civil War, Tubman joined the Union Army as an armed scout and spy. She was the first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, guiding a raid which liberated more than 700 slaves. Harriet Tubman lived to witness the end of slavery in the United States and died a free woman in 1913 on her own property. Frederick Douglass Born into slavery as well in 1818, Douglass experienced the horrors of slavery during his youth and young adulthood before finally escaping from Maryland to Pennsylvania in 1838. He became a licensed preacher and began honing his oratory skills, for which he would later become famous. During his first years of freedom, Douglass studied at the feet of abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison who taught him that the Constitution was a pro-slavery document. Once Douglass read the Constitution himself and studied the words of the Founding Fathers, his entire outlook on the document and America changed. Douglass said, “I became convinced that the Constitution of the United States not only contained no guarantees in favor of slavery, but on the contrary, it is in its letter and spirit an anti-slavery instrument, demanding the abolition of slavery as a condition of its own existence as the supreme law of the land.” Frederick Douglass went on to become a best-selling author, diplomat and a member of a fledgling anti-slavery, pro-abolition political party named the Republican Party. While the Founding Fathers and courageous black leaders brought the United States to the brink of ending the evil of slavery, it was the great emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, with his steady hand, inspired leadership and resolute commitment that pushed the nation over that edge. Many say that Lincoln’s willingness to go to war had little or nothing to do with slavery, but that simply isn’t true. During the Civil War, Lincoln said he had always believed slavery was unjust and couldn’t remember a time in his life when he thought differently. He didn’t necessarily have all of the answers about what the nation would look like after slavery ended, but he did want to end it. When virtually everyone in his administration and life insisted that he abandon the pursuit, Lincoln forged ahead. In 1863, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation which states: That all persons held as slaves within the rebellious states are and henceforward shall be free.

Show 1611 The Breakdown of the Family. A Four Part Series By The Glenn Beck Program

Listen to all Glenn Beck serials at

http://www.glennbeck.com/category/serials 

This The American family is the backbone of society. If you believe in the Bible, you know that after God created Adam and Eve, he commanded them to have children. From the beginning, the ideal family included a biological mother and father to both be in the home, raising their children together. By removing God from our public discourse and breaking down the family unit, progressives have damaged and weakened society. This series explores how the traditional family unit is statistically superior for people and society — and the devastating impact of secularism and liberal policies.

The Breakdown of the Family Part I: The Children In 1950, 75 percent of black families were two-parent homes. A strong family unit was the backbone of black America. Three out of four children had both parents at home. Today, 73 percent of black families are not traditional family units. Most black children now grow up without fathers. The result is a world turned upside down as children copy what they see and repeat what they learn. While the black family has been the hardest hit, by no means is it the only segment to suffer. The American family of every race, every ethnicity, continues to disintegrate as virtually no one steps up to address the problems and propose solutions. Since 1980, the marriage rate has dropped 45 percent and 41 percent of children are born to unmarried mothers (73 percent in the black community). Fatherless or single-parent homes produce children who are two times more likely to be arrested for juvenile crime and twice as likely to be treated for emotional and behavioral problems. They are also 33 percent more likely to drop out of school and three times more likely to end up in jail by age 30. This isn’t to say that single moms can’t be fantastic loving parents or single dads are just not capable of raising wonderful, well-adjusted, highly successful kids — because they can and they do. Grandparents can and do wonderful child-rearing. Same-sex couples certainly love their children. And sometimes the ideal family unit, for whatever reason, just is not possible. But in general, where possible, traditional family units produce the best results, consistently, over decades of studies. Could it be that biologically a woman brings certain traits and skills to child-rearing that a man doesn’t, and vice-versa? And is it just possible that that combination leads to the most well adjusted, highest functioning human beings? Listen to all serials at glennbeck.com/serials

The Breakdown of the Family Part II: The Cause

What caused the destruction of the American family? In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson announced the War On Poverty. Twenty-two trillion dollars later, that battlefield is lined with remnants of broken American families. Huge government welfare and indoctrination programs have contributed to dependency, stripping people of dignity, raising unemployment and enslaving three generations of American citizens. Also taking a toll on the American family was the feminist movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Progressives told women they couldn’t be fulfilled by staying home with their children. The movement also had strong anti-men sentiments. After the women’s movement, society and culture changed. With two working parents, children were often left with caregivers or on their own. In 2008, ABC reported that three-quarters of American girls would become pregnant that year. Even many liberals understood many years ago that the family is the building block of civilization. If it crumbles, so does civilization. Yet far too many Americans have been swallowed up in political correctness. Today, society will tolerate virtually any substitution for the traditional family unit in the name of tolerance. But tolerance is only one side of the coin. The other side is truth. Without both truth and tolerance, everything falls apart.

The Breakdown of the Family Part III: The Black Family

At the turn of the last century, black families were thriving. Today, the majority of black children grow up without two parents or a father figure. What caused the disintegration of the black family? According to Burgess Owens, former NFL star and author of the book Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps, liberalism and Democratic policies destroyed the black community: In order to understand what the impact of liberalism has been, I think it’s important to, first of all, recognize where the black race had been the first hundred years after the Civil War. From 1865 to 1965, the black community had 50 percent of all black Americans as part of the black middle class. We had the highest percentage of black men committed to the family and their marriage, the highest percentage of entrepreneurs in our country. The introduction of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society attacked the very fabric of American black families. Massive government programs had the opposite effect of what we were told they would. For example, incentives were put in place for black women to have babies, stay unemployed and no longer need men in their households. The result was a dependency on government that has been absolutely devastating. Today, one of the biggest threats facing black families is located, by design, primarily in their own communities: Planned Parenthood, an organization voraciously supported by Democrats. Progressive racist Margaret Sanger founded what would become Planned Parenthood to eliminate the black family, and her efforts have been wildly successful. In New York City alone, more black babies were aborted than born in 2012.   Can we change course and restore the American black family? Burgess Owens believes we can: We were the best example of what the American dream is all about. Someone can come here, in any situation, any background, any kind of baggage, and still make it if you decide to dream big and go forward. So I look forward to my race once again being a great example. I think that it will be a small minority of our race who still believe in our country that will pull out my race back from the abyss of socialism. And in doing so, will also do the same for our great nation, pull ourselves back and be an example of what we can do to revive ourselves, to be the great vision that our forefathers saw us as.

Breakdown of the Family Part IV: The Solution

Since the Progressive Era began, traditional American values have been continually attacked, and the hardest hit has been the family unit. The first step toward healing our families is wanting to heal them. According to a Focus on the Family study, Americans do want that. When asked what mattered most to them personally, Americans agreed that a loving family is the single most important priority among a list of many high priorities: • 54 percent = loving family • 50 percent = health • 43 percent = financial security • 33 percent = happiness According to Marc Mero, president of Family First, we can reverse the damage done to the American family, but it won’t happen overnight. It will take a committed effort and positive messaging to reverse the disintegration of the family. He also summed up the most important things he believes need to happen in order to heal American families: First, overall, we need to speak truth into the culture. We really do. We need to speak truth into the culture and say, “This is really what’s happening in our culture.” We need to identify the problem, as we’ve already discussed, but we need to also talk about the solution. Secondly, I believe one of the most important things we can do to make the family thrive once again, to bring the family back together, is to get fathers more involved in their kids’ lives. We have two problems: We have one that many fathers are physically absent from their kids. There are 24 million children in our country right now who are growing up without their biological fathers. We have many millions more who are growing up with fathers who are in the home, but are emotionally absent from their kids. And so if we can reverse those two trends and really get fathers engaged in their lives, I believe that we can really turn things around and have families that don’t die, that don’t just survive, but actually thrive in our country once again. The American family needs an advocacy group like the LGBT community, which overcame overwhelming odds, huge approval deficits to turn public opinion around in an incredibly short period of time. They went from states flat-out refusing to even consider same-sex marriage, to losing referendums in every single state that held a vote, to same-sex marriage being accepted by the majority of the people and the law of the land in under 20 years. If advocates for the traditional family had such focus, organization and commitment, the American family could be saved. And with it, perhaps America itself.

Show 1608 The 9/12 Movement By The Glenn Beck Program

Listen to all Glenn Beck serials at

http://www.glennbeck.com/category/serials

The day after America was attacked, Americans were not obsessed with political parties and differences like skin color or religion. Following the devastating attacks on September 11, 2001, citizens united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created. The 9/12 movement is about bringing people back to that same feeling of togetherness and uniting on common values and principles.

The 9/12 Movement Part I: The Beginning Virtually every serious problem the United States of America faces today can be traced to progressivism. Progressives infiltrated the government, corporations, entertainment and essentially took over American culture, eliminating God from the public square, education and public policy. As a result, morality has eroded, cities have decayed and the family unit has been weakened. In 2008, one of the most progressive candidates and non-America-centric presidents in U.S. history promised just before the election to fundamentally transform the United States of America. As many Americans blindly cheered Obama’s declaration, chills went down the spines of millions of others who understood exactly what he meant. Anyone who understood the implications made by the incoming president knew what was coming. Following the election, many Americans felt hopeless, alone and angry. Glenn went on a mission to unite the millions who understood America’s special place in history. He became obsessed with revitalizing conservative, constitutionally-minded Americans: I know it’s hard. I know you’re tired. But I will prove it to you. You give me a couple of weeks, and I will find a way to prove it to you, that you are not alone, that there are more of us than them. You just don’t hear from your kind of voice because nobody wants to give them any airtime. Because you’re ordinary. Weeks later, Glenn announced the birth of the 9/12 Project, a movement focused on bringing Americans back to the place they found themselves on September 12, 2001, the day after America was attacked. It was a day when political parties, skin color and religion didn’t matter. A day when the only thing that mattered was being an American, united by common values and principles.

 

The 9/12 Movement Part II: 9 Principles and 12 Values

The day after 9/11, a day when nearly 3,000 of our loved ones and fellow Americans were slaughtered, no one had to tell Americans how to behave. The government didn’t need to regulate our feelings and actions. Americans did what Americans do when the going gets tough: Lean on each other and God to make it through difficult times. Following the 2008 election, Glenn called on his fellow citizens to unite and bring back that feeling of unity by launching the 9/12 Project. At the heart of the project were 9 principles and 12 values, the traits Glenn believes America exhibited the day after 9/11: NINE PRINCIPLES 1. America is good. 2. I believe in God and He is the center of my life. 3. I must always try to be a more honest than I was yesterday. 4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government. 5. If you break the law, you pay the penalty. Justice is blind, and no one is above it. 6. I have a right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results. 7. I work hard for what I have, and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable. 8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion. 9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them: They answer to me. TWELVE VALUES 1. Honesty 2. Reverence 3. Hope 4. Thrift 5. Humility 6. Charity 7. Sincerity 8. Moderation 9. Hard work 10. Courage 11. Personal responsibility 12. Gratitude

 

The 9/12 Movement Part III: Restoring Honor, Courage & Love

On August 28, 2010, slightly a year after Glenn launched the 9/12 Project, he and his staff organized a rally in Washington, D.C. called Restoring Honor. It was an attempt to bring God back into the public square. An estimated 500,000 people attended what was the largest gathering ever at the National Mall put together by a private citizen. A year later, Glenn and his staff traveled to Jerusalem for Restoring Courage. While there, Glenn spoke at the first ever gathering hosted by a Christian at the Temple Mount. And then, in 2012, in front of the largest crowd ever gathered for a spoken-word event at Dallas Cowboy Stadium, Glenn held Restoring Love. All of these rallies — Restoring Honor, Restoring Courage and Restoring Love — had the primary objective to end divisiveness and bring Americans back together around the common principles and values established in the 9/12 Project.

 

The 9/12 Movement Part IV: The Impact

 It’s difficult to quantify the impact of the 9/12 Project, although there are definite tangibles. The movement produced the Black Robe Regiment, pastors and ministers all over the nation banding together to strengthen America’s pulpit. With involvement from the 9/12 Project and the Tea Party, several great candidates were elected to Congress and Common Core was defeated in several states. Most importantly, Americans came together in support of common principles and values. While initially unsure of how to begin the movement and what direction to take it in, Glenn’s gut instinct told him that healing needed to occur and Americans needed to feel in control of their lives and connected to like-minded individuals. They needed to feel the way they did the day after 9/11. That instinct was confirmed when Glenn launched the 9/12 Project. There was a palpable, demonstrable sense of oneness, of Americans coming together for a common cause and taking action so they no longer felt alone and defeated.

Show 1605 Glenn Beck on the 5 Books on Communism and Bill Whittle on Native Americans

Segment 1- Glenn Beck On GBTV Exposes Communism and Marxism for What it Truly is with Five Books of Truth

 

To watch this video visit-

http://glennbecksbooklist.blogspot.com/2011/10/glenn-beck-on-gbtv-exposes-communism.html

On Glenn Beck’s GBTV show, he schools his listeners on the ways of communism by stating that “When I say they are going to drag you out into the streets and kill you, I mean it.” Beck exposes the real truth of communism in five must-read books:

 

  1. The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression.

 

  1. Oral History Project of the Commission on the Ukraine Famine.

 

  1. From the Gulag to the Killing Fields: Personal Accounts of Political Violence and Repression in Communist States.

 

  1. Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness.

 

  1. Modern Times Revised Edition: The World from the Twenties to the Nineties.

 

The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression

This book uncovers the number of atrocities committed by communists over the years and in various countries that followed Marxist beliefs. In essence, the book reveals all the killings that resulted from the following of communistic ways. Simply put, communism is death and Marxists are doing the killing. By Stéphane Courtois and others.

 

Oral History Project of the Commission on the Ukraine Famine

At least 7 million people died in the Ukraine, according to the Commission on the Ukraine Famine. Beck shares that these statistics make sense and argues that socialism does not work because it requires those in power to kill the people in the country that are responsible for making essential goods, such as the farmers responsible for growing the food.

 

From the Gulag to the Killing Fields: Personal Accounts of Political Violence and Repression in Communist States

 

From the Gulag to the Killing Fields documents firsthand accounts from the survivors of communist concentration camps from around the world at takes a revealing look at communism in practice. These testimonials uncover the fruitlessness that communism truly spreads. In this case, the primary sources that survived reveal that communism in practice does not and cannot work.

 

Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness.

In Cass Sunstein’s book he discusses how the Government gives people the “nudge,” rather than a push or shove to make the “right choices”. While it is not directly about communism or Marxism, it fits into the theme of the other books quite well. The book’s authors uncover that people have choices, whether they make good ones or bad ones, through “nudging” you can direct people to the choices you want. These people who have the power to shape decisions can “overreach or make mistakes”. The freedom of choice is what prevents others from overreaching or making bad choices and therefore should be allowed to happen and not hindered or manipulated.

 

Modern Times Revised Edition: The World from the Twenties to the Nineties.

What you’re taught in college is that Stalin and other Marxist leaders were not violent. However, according to Beck, Stalin’s first action was to kill all the shop owners, kill all the capitalists, kill all the industrialists, and to take over the farms by killing the farmers. These leaders were violent right from the start. Then when you take everything away from the people, they become violent too and the problem simply perpetuates. 

Beck also establishes that Marxism ends in violence every single time. He mentions it is not a hate thing, it’s a human thing. Marxists pit classes against classes, telling one class that the other has taken something from them, which causes human nature to kick in and results in dissension among the people.

Show 1600 Hillary Clinton: The Four-Part Series By The Glenn Beck

Hillary Clinton has lived her entire adult life as a part of election campaigns and in the public eye. The Ivy League grad and former First Lady is running for the highest office in the land — now, it’s her turn. A new generation of voters will be heading to the polls since her last stint in the White House, and they deserve to know who they are voting for. In this series, Glenn examines the details behind the candidate and tries to put her ideology into perspective. Who and what has influenced her thinking, the tactics she uses to get what she wants and the people she leaves in her wake are all put out into the light of day.

Part I: The Early Years

Hillary believed in most of what Saul Alinsky taught, even writing her thesis on his teachings. The only place they diverted is where Alinsky taught to influence government, Hillary thought it would be more effective to join it and change it from the inside. Understanding the activist is key to understanding the candidate, and knowing who she admired is a window into what inspired her. Whether it’s Alinsky or famed eugenicist Margaret Sanger, Hillary sure knows how to pick ‘em. Discover how these radicals have influenced the democrat frontrunner. And if you have ever wondered what exactly the “Whitewater” scandal was, you’ll find out here.

 Part II: From Arkansas to the White House

 It’s almost impossible for most administrations to escape their time in service completely free of scandal. But most administrations don’t become experts in handling legacy-threatening events either. The Clinton Machine might be known for winning elections, but the Machine is just as adept at taking care of controversy. The Clinton’s rode a Whitewater wave of scandal into office and dealt with the Branch Davidians in Waco in controversial fashion. Vince Foster’s death may have officially been ruled a suicide but it was shrouded in controversy. Then there was the Chinagate fundraising scandal. These are all related to her husband’s administration — next up are the personal scandals. Where there is billowing smoke there is never fire, at least when the Clintons are involved. Listen here as Glenn explains these scandals and just what Hillary’s role may have been.

 Part III: Bill’s Many Women

 Gennifer Flowers, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Monica Lewinsky are just a few of Bill’s many women. Whether it was a consensual affair or forced sexual assault, Bill is a notorious womanizer. As governor of Arkansas, Bill even had state troopers escort women to him in what was later known as “Trooper Gate.” All of his womanizing caught up with him when Linda Tripp made secret recordings of her conversations with Monica Lewinskey about their affair — leading to his impeachment. But just what does all of this have to do with Hillary Clinton? As long as Bill’s had other women, Hillary has been linked to the heart of their scorched earth policy in destroying and silencing them. This is especially important because of a PSA on sexual assault Hillary released during this presidential campaign. “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have a right to be heard; you have a right to be believed. We are with you.” Listen as Glenn details the affairs and the former First Lady’s role in the cover up and bullying of abused women her husband left in his wake.

Part IV: Political Career

 So far, we have focused on the scandals and shady behavior from Bill and Hillary as Bill rose to power. This episode details just how deep the corruption runs and the lengths to which Hillary will go to hide the truth during the rise of her political career. Bullying women into keeping silent in the wake of her husband’s actions is one thing, but when lives are lost it’s a whole new ballgame. In efforts to hide her involvement in arming rebels in Libya, Hillary and the State Department withheld aid when Ambassador Chris Stevens came under attack in Benghazi. Not sending in backup and denying requests for added security resulted in the loss of the lives of four Americans that night. And if those actions weren’t despicable enough, she and the administration concocted a ridiculous story about a YouTube video as the cause and lied to the families of those who died about what happened. The Benghazi hearings brought to light an email scandal when Hillary thought it would be a good idea to set up a private email server for sending and receiving classified information. The investigation into how she handled this sensitive information has now led to hearings into just how the Clinton Foundation has handled their business, possibly taking multimillion dollar donations from foreign governments for favorable treatment from the State Department. Listen as Glenn details the lies and deceit from Hillary once her political career began and into her run for the White House.

Show 1599 History of Labor Unions By The Glenn Beck Program

The history of unions in America is complicated. They definitely served a purpose as Americans entered the industrial age, improving wages, job security and working conditions. But the movement was also susceptible to infiltration by those who wanted to fundamentally transform or even destroy the United States of America. Unions had pervasive ties to communists, thugs and the Democratic Party. Violence and racism were systemically rampant. So how did Unions begin and flourish in the U.S.? This four-part series explores the history of unions and why their time may have passed.

History of Labor Unions Part I

 The union label song was a happy little jingle for a happy group of Americans. So happy, in fact, Al Gore once told a group of teamsters it was a “lullaby” his mother sang to him at night. Interestingly, Al Gore must have been 27 years old when his mother serenaded him, because the union label song was written in 1975. From the beginning, unions, communism, socialism and democratic socialism have gone hand-in-hand. It may have something to do with Karl Marx and his feelings about unions: Let the ruling class tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. Workers of the world unite. Since both Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of the Communist Manifesto, seemed to care so much for the working class, organizing workers and communism made a natural fit. That may well explain why communists were pervasive within union leadership, the union movement and the Democratic Party. The labor movement also had significant racism. In San Francisco in the late 1880s, the union developed a slogan for their strike: “The Chinese must go.” In the cigar industry, union labels signaled customers that products were made by whites, as blacks were excluded from joining unions. Listen to all serials at glennbeck.com/serials

History of Labor Unions Part II

Unions have been an influential force in America with some very positive results. Child labor laws, the eight-hour workday, weekends off — all can be directly attributed to the labor movement of the late 1800s. The vast majority of union members are patriotic, hard-working Americans. But there is a seedy underbelly to labor unions. The cauldrons of socialism, Marxism and communism, unions have fomented violence as far back as 1877. Employing both a mixture of Marxism and violence, early radical unions favored waging warfare against the capitalist society and its leaders. In modern times, Democratic allies in Congress have encouraged getting “a little bloody when necessary.” Unions became enmeshed with another seedy ally during the 20th century: the Mafia. The 20th century labor wars opened up vast new territory to Mafia influence and domination. Organized crime would move in on unions and employers nationwide, soaking up the wages and pension funds of union members, while extorting huge payoffs from businesses in return for labor peace. The mafia would take control of major international unions and find its way into executive boardrooms.

 History of Labor Unions Part III

How did unions come to wield so much power and influence over American politics? How did union leaders gain more access to the White House during the Obama administration than administration officials, Democratic senators or family members? The answer is simple: money. The most frequent visitors to the Obama White House were Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, and his second lieutenant, Anna Burger. Also at the top of the list was president of AFL-CIO Richard Trumka. Trumka admitted that he visited the White House two or three times a week and had conversations every single day. In the 2012 election, according to The New York Times, labor leaders expected unions to spend $400 million on national, state and local elections. The left loves to accuse the Koch brothers of buying elections, claiming they surpass any other political donors on the right or left, but the claim is ludicrous. The Koch brothers have personally given $3.2 million to politicians and parties over the past 15 years. The Huffington Post estimated union spending on elections and lobbying at $1.7 billion. According to OpenSecrets.org, the number one political donor in American politics since the 1990 election is SEIU, with total contributions of $234 million — all but $2 million went to Democrats.

History of Labor Unions Part IV

Labor unions brought many positive changes to America, but at a very high cost. Violence and corruption have permeated unions and, in many cases, hampered the incentive to excel. Virtually nothing can remove a paying union member from a job, regardless of performance or behavior. Additionally, Americans are denied the right to work without paying union dues. Socialist, Marxist, communist and progressive infiltration and ideology spilled into the government due to massive and unprecedented political contributions from unions. Rampant racism kept blacks from joining and laws like the Davis-Bacon Act in 1931, further prevented non-unionized blacks and immigrant laborers from competing with unionized white workers for scarce jobs during the Depression. Has it all been worth it? Do the victories of unions in the workplace outweigh the heavy cost? Unions had their place and time in American history, but that time may well have passed.

Show 1597 Dresden Dennis Prager interviews Frederick Taylor author of Dresden: Tuesday, 13 February, 1945  Podcast rating: 7.5 out of 10. This is an Encore presentation of ACU show #480.

Publisher Comments: The bombing began shortly after 10:00 P.M. on February 13, 1945. In the fifteen hours that followed, 1,100 American and British heavy bombers dropped more than 4,500 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices, leaving the ancient city of Dresden — "the Florence of the Elbe" — in flaming ruins and claiming the lives of thousands of its citizens. Twelve weeks later the German surrender was in hand, signaling the end of World War II.

Yet today the bombing of Dresden is embedded in our collective consciousness not as the toppling blow to Nazi Germany but as one of history's cruelest wartime atrocities, a vicious and militarily unjustifiable act of vengeful retribution against a peaceful, beautiful, defenseless city somehow removed from the war-making machinery that had otherwise consumed all of Germany.

What really happened at Dresden — both the facts of the events themselves and the reasons behind the remarkable legacy of propaganda that has left us in the dark about those events for nearly sixty years — is the subject of Frederick Taylor's ground breaking study. After careful research into British, American, and German archives (including recently discovered documents, now available after decades of communist censorship) and interviews with both bombers and survivors, Taylor — a bilingual scholar, translator, and writer — has created the most complete portrait ever assembled of the city, its people, and those involved in its fate. Many of his findings require a revelatory shift in how we understand these events. For instance, he demonstrates that the numbers of dead — frequently cited in excess of 100,000 — were greatly exaggerated, for propagandapurposes, by Josef Goebbels (Taylor estimates the actual death toll at between 25,000 and 40,000) charges that Allied pilots overhead shot down German civilians as they fled toward safety were patently false contrary to popular belief, Dresden was a city of considerable military importance, both as a transportation hub and a major producer of armaments and military provisions.

"Dresden: Tuesday, February 13, 1945 is the first truly informed and fair-minded history of the bombing that lives in infamy. Frederick Taylor's book, a responsible and long-overdue corrective to a sixty-year-long legacy of misinformation masquerading as fact, will be remembered for generations both as a work of enduring scholarship and as a moving, compassionate narrative of a human tragedy of historic significance.

Synopsis: For decades it has been assumed that the Allied bombing of Dresden — a cultured city famous for its china, chocolate, and fine watches — was militarily unjustifiable, an act of retribution for Germany's ceaseless bombing of London and other parts of England.

Now, Frederick Taylor's groundbreaking research offers a completely new examination of the facts and reveals that Dresden was a highly militarized city actively involved in the production of military armaments and communications. Incorporating first-hand accounts, contemporaneous press material and memoirs, and never-before-seen government records, Taylor proves unequivocally the very real military threat Dresden posed — and how a legacy of propaganda shrouded the truth for sixty years.

About the Author- Frederick Taylor studied history and modern languages at Oxford University and Sussex University. A Volkswagen Studentship award enabled him to research and travel widely in both parts of divided Germany at the height of the Cold War. Taylor is the author of Dresden and has edited and translated a number of works from German, including The Goebbels Diaries, 1939-1941. He is married with three children and lives in Cornwall, England.

Education in America: The Four-Part Series By The Glenn Beck Program

This A century ago, America’s progressive elites, believing the Constitution to be old, dusty and irrelevant, formulated a 100-year plan to bring about the fundamental transformation of America. They knew that plan had to include controlling the education system and indoctrinating America’s children. God and religion would have to be eliminated from the classroom, the Constitution would have to be diminished, and socializing and socialism would need to be a focal point. This series on Education in America details the shift from the Founders’ belief in individual learning to a one-size-fits-all, federally-controlled education that produces enslaved citizens incapable of critical thinking.
