Beck: Keep Redskins Nickname

Glenn Beck, of The Blaze, is taking umbrage at those folks who suddenly want to rename the Washington Redskins. “The name’s been around for 80 years and now, because of Harry Reid, the guy who liked Obama, and I’m quoting, because in Harry Reid’s words, ‘a Negro dialect wasn’t part of it. He didn’t have a Negro dialect unless he wanted one.’ That guy is now the moral authority on what’s offensive and what isn’t?” But should the Redskins lose their nickname to the bureaucrats, Beck has some novel ideas on what to replace it with, such as the Washington 60,000 Alien Children Flooding Our Borders or the Washington 80 Bucks to Fill Up My Damn Gas Tank. Listen to Beck’s other suggestions in this edition of MercuryOneMemphis.

We the People in Peril

“We the people,” perhaps the most sacrosanct phrase in the history of our Union, is losing its luster. No longer does this introduction to our Constitution command the merit and reverance it once did. It now is tarnished by an ever-intrusive government, a president with no respect for our surpreme law and by a real threat to our freedom and pursuit of happiness. In this edition of LibertyPen, Glenn Beck and Judge Andrew Napolitano discuss our right to be left alone.

Hillary’s Double-Talk

Hillary Clinton raised quite a stir in her recent interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer when she proclaimed her family was “dead broke” when they left the White House in 1999. The outlandish statement took Glenn Beck and staff by surprise at the daily briefing of The Blaze. What Clinton failed to mention was that two weeks after leaving Pennsylvania Avenue she signed an $8 million book deal and her husband … well, he still draws a lifetime salary of $201,000, plus several perks like $515,000 per year for office space, $60,000 for phones, $70,000 for equipment and $65,000 for other services. Hmmm! Join the daily briefing as a dumbfounded Beck can’t believe what he’s hearing.

Millenial Madness Looms

In Thursday’s daily briefing of The Blaze staff, Glenn Beck laments that because of the sorry state of the country, Millennials are facing a future of violence. And he challenges any rational person to disagree with him. The new generation which are the Millennials, Beck says, are now facing 50 percent unemployment among teens, college students are piling on debt and the job market remains sickly, to put it mildly. “That’s the generation that is coming out right now,” he says. “The ones that we had the progressives tell us, ‘give them trophies, tell that if you just do this, you’ll get the corner office. You don’t really have to earn it.” And it doesn’t stop there, Beck says. The Millennials in their 30s will feel the pinch, too.

GOP Seeking Younger People

Glenn Beck welcomes Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to The Blaze to discuss the future of the GOP. Says Beck, “Both (political) parties are a nightmare,” and adds that “he can’t get away from traditional Republicans fast enough.” So, is a third party the answer, or should the GOP develop a strategy to attract younger people to the party?

Government Power Grab

The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Rights recently released its third report on the assault of state rights and the abuse of federal power by this administration. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a key member of the subcommittee, tells Glenn Beck of The Blaze how the Obama Administration’s unchecked power and lawlessness is taking its toll on our country.

 

Beck: Stop Saying No

As Americans across this great nation struggle to keep their New Year’s resolutions, Glenn Beck says it’s time we all became better people. In this edition of The Blaze, Beck urges us to release the miracles from within. “We all have a story to tell,” he says. “We all have a reason to be here. We all have a job to do, and too many of us, unfortunately, are telling ourselves, are telling others, ‘No, that’s stupid, that’s foolish, don’t do it.”

Economic Reboot Coming

Yaron Brook, president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, tells Glenn Beck that ominous economic clouds lay ahead for the United States. “Over the next 20 plus-minus years, we’re in deep, deep economic trouble,” Brook says. “It might be sooner. It might be three years, but at some point this country goes bankrupt.” Listen to the full discussion in this edition of “The Blaze.”

Glenn Beck Defends Redskins

The controversy surrounding the nickname of the Washington Redskins has drawn the ire of conservative commentator Glenn Beck. Most of the fuss, says Beck, is coming from non-Native Americans, such as President Obama, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and reporter Peter King, who believe they know more than the Native people themselves. “Ninety percent of Native Americans feel that the name isn’t offensive and shouldn’t be changed,” Beck says, citing a poll taken by the Annenberg Public Policy Center. “Students primarily at Native American schools all across America wear the name with pride and now say, they might lose the name.” In this edition of “The Blaze,” Beck explains the history of the nickname “Redskins” and how it relates to today.

Agenda 21: Control the World

Agenda 21, adopted by the United Nations in 1992 to implement worldwide sustainable development, is emerging from the shadows and drawing major opposition in our country. Those opposed decry that the plan is an infringement on individual rights on a state, local and community level, and is basically an attempt at creating a new world order. “Sustainable development is a term that was defined by the United Nations … The plan restricts your choices, it limits your ability to govern yourself and it takes away your freedom,” says Rosa Koire, executive director of the Post Sustainability Institute. Get the lowdown on Agenda 21 and its dangerous repercussions from a myriad of sources, including conservative political commentator Glenn Beck in this episode of “Jason A.”
