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."

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
