Glenn unloads on Boehner; should be 'ashamed of himself'

On radio this morning, Glenn interviewed freshman Congressman Joe Walsh. The revealing conversation led to Glenn sending some harsh words towards Speaker Boehner.

Glenn welcomed Walsh to show, and invited him to tell the audience a story that Glenn knew about but hadn’t really addressed on radio. Apparently, a group of Congressmen wanted to come over for the Restoring Courage event and to meet with Israeli officials, but they ended up being rejected by the House ethics committee.

“The International Israel Allied Caucus Foundation, a group was going to, you know, sponsor this fact finding mission, was going to come over for two or three days, engage in some very interesting meetings with some Israeli officials, join you at your two very important events promoting, you know, an undivided Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and lo and behold, ethics yesterday said -- did not approve this,” Walsh said.

“They said your portion of the fact finding mission had the appearance of a political event, they told me. They said there wasn't enough meeting time built into the schedule and they identified the Israeli Allied Caucus Foundation as a lobbying group currently lobbying Congress on legislation when, in fact, they're a 501(c)3 charity.

“it's terribly disappointing because I would have given anything to have, as a member of Congress, been there with you and seen firsthand what needs to be done to promote this issue of eventually, as quickly as we can, making Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel,” Walsh added.

Glenn said that he had heard Boehner’s office was not approving many Congressmen to come over, and those that were coming were funding the trip themselves.

“Glenn, I'm with you. I don't, either. To me it purely is an additional way to go over there and do some fact finding and learn. That's what we as members of Congress do but for some reason they shied away from what you are doing over there,” Walsh said.

When Glenna and Walsh ended their conversation, Glenn turned his attention to Speaker Boehner.

“This has been going on now for a couple of weeks and I haven't said anything because I wanted it to play out in the system, but Speaker Boehner, you should be ashamed of yourself. The Republican party should be ashamed of themselves. They don't have to attend my event. Let them come to our biggest ally and the only friend we still have in the Middle East in their hour of need. They don't have to attend my event,” Glenn said.

“There are so many people good people that are in the Republican party trying to fight for common sense values, trying to hold some semblance of the line of America, trying to hold together what little credibility we have overseas, but the Republicans would much rather punish ‘bad Republicans’.”

“You politicians in Washington sicken me. The American people are done with the games. We would sure like your help in fixing the country, but if you're going to continue to play games, you're meaningless, you're meaningless. The American people will fix it,” Glenn said.

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.
