Glenn interviews Herman Cain

Herman Cain has been a growing Tea Party favorite over the past few weeks, and Glenn had Cain n radio this morning and asked him some surprisingly tough questions. What does Glenn think of Herman Cain for President?

Glenn explained that he first saw Herman Cain long before he had indicated intentions to run for President. “I was in Chicago to give a speech and a guy walked on stage that I think somebody said to me, oh, this is the Godfather's pizza guy.  You should see him.  Oh, the Godfather pizza guy, okay.  I don't think I ever said this watching anybody ever before.  I said to one of the guys with me, I said could you please ask if I could meet him?”

“You might want to consider it here for a second.  Herman, when we talk about you and I have told this story about, you know, first time I saw you and I think you're great and I see you from time to time on the news and I think you're great.  I will tell you that there are three things that the listeners have brought up.  One of them Pat brought up, that I have questions on and you're not entering a hostile room, but I am going to ask you tough questions,” Glenn warned.

Glenn first asked Cain about his background as a Fed Chairman.

“I was Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.  As you know, there are twelve banks and they have their citizens board, and I got elected to the Fed Chairmanship for the Federal Reserve Kansas City Bank back in the mid-'90s.  It might have been 1995-'96.  This is when Alan Greenspan was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and the governors out of Washington, D.C,” Cain said.

“Yes, I was proud of the work of serving on that board for the following reasons.  That Federal Reserve didn't do any of the stuff that this Federal Reserve is doing.  Secondly, Alan Greenspan never allowed the fed to become politicized, and the other difference between today and then is that we didn't have this $14 trillion debt to deal with and as a result, they didn't have to deflate or inflate our currency the way this Federal Reserve board is doing it.  So yes, I did serve on the board.”

Glenn then asked if Cain was for or against auditing the Fed. Cain said that while he was not opposed to the idea, he would not champion the cause because “I don't believe they're going to find anything”.

Glenn Herman Cain also addressed the fair tax and the IRS.

“I'm not going to try to get the fair tax passed immediately.  I want to do those other points that I indicated because we need an immediate boost to this economy.  But during that first couple of years, I will be educating and informing the public so they understand it and if they understand it, then we'll have the public support we need in order to pass the fair tax which would also then abolish the IRS,” Cain told Glenn.

“Herman, you are a supporter of Israel as I am.  Why?” Glenna asked.

“The reason is, number one, they have been a staunch ally of ours in that part of the world.  Secondly, they have survived being surrounded by so many its enemies and then thirdly, because of the Biblical significance of the state of Israel, but primarily because they have simply been a great ally to the United States of America and I believe in-- I don't believe in damaging that relationship whatsoever.  I believe in even strengthening that relationship.  That's why I feel that way.”

“Look at it this way, the majority of Americans support Israel.  What this President is doing, quite frankly, is not only opposite of what the majority of the American people feel, it's also very confusing,” Cain said.

What is your line in the sand — the point at which you take a stand and say "no"? Is it an assault on your religion? Your kids and their education? The breakdown of society? The rule of law? Is it impoverishment and the collapse of the economy?

Frighteningly, ALL of them are currently under assault, and we’re being demoralized into submission. We’re being made to look the other way in the face of evil and to accept all of it as just part of the "new normal." We were warned this would happen back in the early 1980s. Now the media and Left try to dismiss any sane objection to depravity as “the new Satanic Panic.”

There is no cabal orchestrating our demise, but IT DID have an origin. There are but a few stages left until it’s all over. On "Glenn TV," Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the ultimate Achilles' heel of the entire process. We can stop America’s moral decline, but more Americans need to rise up and find the courage to say "NO FARTHER!" or this will be our new Alamo.

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."
