Glenn interviews 2012 candidate Herman Cain

Herman Cain has been rising up the polls in recent days, and he joined Glenn on radio this morning to talk about his candidacy for 2012. Mr. Cain was pretty impressive and his 9-9-9 tax policy even had Glenn breaking out the Barry White, a ritual usually reserved for the Chris Christie conservative porn.

"You notice I don't give generic answers to some of these big things that we face. I talk about solutions. And this 9‑9‑9 economic growth and jobs plan has resonated with people. I'm talking about people who are out working every day, they are here one time and they get it," Cain told Glenn.

"Can I tell you something? I have to tell you, the first time I heard your 9‑9‑9 thing," Glenn said as Barry White started to play over the airwaves. "I am absolutely in. It makes total sense."

"It first throws out the entire tax code," Cain said. "Throw out the tax code. That's where we start. And then we pass the 9% business flat tax, 9% personal income flat tax, and a 9% national sales tax."

"Here's the other thing, Glenn. There are no loopholes. See, if you look at Romney's plan, if you look at Newt's, with all due respect, they pivot off the tax code. This has no loopholes, all businesses are treated the same. Small businesses, Subchapter S, sub corps, no loopholes," Cain added.

Glenn and Cain also talked about Cain's time in the Federal Reserve. Cain agreed that the Fed was hurting America, and promised that Congressional legislation would help clip the wings of the organization.

"Congress has the power to narrow back the mission of the Federal Reserve. That's what we need to do," Cain emphasized.

And what does Cain think of the protests on Wall Street?

"First of all, the Wall Street protestors are anti‑capitalism. The Wall Street protestors represent in my opinion ‑‑ I don't have factual information. It is an attempt to distract from the failed policies of the Obama administration and so they want to blame the fat cats, they want to blame Wall Street for the fact that $14 million people are still out of work. They want to blame the fat cats for the fact that this economy is not growing when it is all the responsibility because of failed policies of President Obama and his administration. That's all this is."

Cain also addressed his stance on several foreign policy issues, including his stance on Israel and Libya.

"Let's start with the fact that I have a philosophy of foreign policy, and I'll give you an example of how I'm going to apply this. First, my philosophy of foreign policy is an extension of the Reagan policy which is peace through strength. My philosophy is peace through strength and clarity. We need to clarify who our friends are, clarify who our enemies are and stop giving money to our enemies," Cain said.

"The other thing that we would do is go through this clarification of just who are our friends is we let the rest of the few go including our enemies that we are going to stand with our friends. This is my approach to foreign policy. This president has made it very ambiguous in terms of where the United States stands with Israel. I have made it very clear that United States will stand for Israel with my statement: If you mess with Israel, you're messing with the United States of America."

On Libya, Cain said, "Libya is in transition. I would need to know from our people, our intelligence agencies what is the status and what is our best route right now. On the surface, Glenn, it looks like we ought to just get out of there but I'm not sure of that because I don't have enough information right now to make that decision. What I do know is that the Muslim Brotherhood has positioned itself for a much bigger role in what ultimately the government turns out to be."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
