Perry vs. Romney = 2012 depression

Watching Perry and Romney bicker over who said what in their books was not exactly the inspiring talk conservatives want to hear. It's petty but worse yet - it reveals that each have far too much in common with Barack Obama, leaving many conservatives feeling like it's prom and they don't have a date. How did Glenn react to the testy exchange?

"I watched the debate and I think to myself, Who is the next President of the United States? And I think there's a little something in me that says the same thing that may be the little thing that speaks inside of you, too, Barack Obama, because I so far don't see anyone that I can say with great confidence, Yep, here he is," Glenn said,

"Lord, help us, please," he added.

Why was Glenn so worried? Because last night more politicians than ever seemed to have more in common with Barack Obama than anyone else.

"The fact is it was a bad debate last night. It's a bad debate," Pat said.

How is Romney seeming like Obama? In his book, he tried to draw distinctions between Obamacare and Romneycare. Stu explains, "He's always been trying to draw a distinction between Obamacare and Romneycare. His initial distinction in the hard cover book was that there was a public option involved in Obamacare. In other words, people are trying to say they're the same plan. However, there were some big differences, quote, in particular, our plan did not include a public insurance option and he goes on to describe that. That's all removed. Now, in the real policy of Obamacare, that was removed, as well. So, I think his defense there would be, well, we didn't put the public option part in there because it wasn't -- it didn't wind up in the end bill."

Stu added that in the hardcover version of his book, Romney said that "we can accomplish the same thing for everyone in the country and it could be done without letting government take over healthcare," implying that Romneycare was NOT a government takeover of healthcare since it was a state issue. However, that line has been omitted from the softcover version of Romney's book.

On the other hand, Rick Perry revealed an almost progressive stand on immigration and the border:

"There's nobody on this stage who has spent more time working on border security than I have. For a decade I've been the governor of a state with a 1200-mile border with Mexico. We put $400 million of our taxpayer money into securing that border. We've got our Texas Ranger recon teams there now. I supported Arizona's immigration law by joining in that lawsuit to defend it. Every day I have Texans on that border that are doing their job, but if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state from no other reason than they've been brought there, by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart," Perry said.

Combined with Perry's comments on immigration, both frontrunners seem to be appearing more like Barack Obama-lite than strong conservative options.

"We're in a 14-month period here that if Barack Obama wins and listen to this carefully, because anybody who -- anybody who tells you differently does not understand the fight that we are up against now. If Barack Obama wins or another Democrat wins that is in the, you know, progressive vein, the country is over. If we have a progressive on the right win, I will tell you that the country will be over. May not be in that term, but things are going to be so bad in that term that if it's just -- if it's not a stark reserves all engines, we have no chance of survival because they will use that four-year period to obstruct and to destroy and to blame on the Republicans and then you've lost the country the next time because the next time the guy will be running on a socialist platform," Glenn warned

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
