America: It's time to dump Trump

Think Donald Trump is a strong conservative alternative to President Obama? You might want to think again! Pat and Stu juxtaposed some of his recent, aggressive comments with ones he made not that long ago. He criticized Bush, praised Obama, and more!

What were some of the things he was saying just two years ago?

Trump right after 2008 election: “Bush has been so bad, maybe the worst president in the history of this country.” “So incompetent, so bad, so evil.”

For comparison, Trump now says: “ [Obama]'s been a horrible president. I always said the worst president was Jimmy Carter.”

Trump in 2008: “You can be enemies with people, whether it's Iran or Iraq or any other place, have dialogue. [Bush people] won't even talk to him. It's terrible.”

Stu pointed out that Trump is essentially making a policy statement here. “Bush sucks because he won't talk to President Ahmadinejad. That was his point there: We should be meeting with these people; we can have a dialogue.”

Trump in 2008 on Obama: “I think he has a chance to go down as a great president. Now, if he's not a great president, this country's in trouble. I think he's going to lead through consensus. It's not going to be a bull run like Bush did, he just did whatever the hell he wanted, go into a country, attack Iraq which had nothing to do with the World Trade Center, just do it because he wanted to do it.”

“Now, this reminds me of why I thought Donald Trump was a liberal Democrat in the first place. And I was blown away when he announced he was a Republican and he was maybe going to run for the Republican nomination,” Pat said.

“I mean, we were talking all the redistribution of wealth, we were talking about all the socialist policies, we were talking about how this guy wanted to completely reshape American foreign policy and has, by the way. We were talking about a guy who didn't really take Islamic extremism seriously; he didn't really believe that you couldn't negotiate with Ahmadinejad. All of those things. And Trump was okay with it all,” Pat added

President Obama was more than eager to talk about The Donald's remarks in a recent interview because it makes conservatives look ridiculous.

“All of us have been struck by Donald rising to the top of the Republican field by feeding fantasies about your background. What do you make of that?” The President was asked.

“I think that over the past two and a half years there's been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short term for Republicans but creates I think a problem for them when they want to actually run in a general election when most people feel pretty confident the president was born where he says he was, in Hawaii,” Obama responded.

Stu said, “It draws attention away from him raising taxes, from him trying to soak the rich, from him doing things that seem completely suicidal to our economy. Instead he could just be, he can just say, oh, well, that's people, they don't even think I was born here.”

“The fact that someone's even talking about the Birther thing at this point, the guy's been president for two years. I mean, I don't know, I don't know at this point why it would even possibly be valid,” Stu concluded.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
