Romney delivers the smackdown at debate

You may not agree with Mitt Romney on anything...but you can't deny that he has dominated every single GOP debate thus far. He was even able to defend the controversial, big government RomneyCare program he put into place as Massachusetts Governor.

Last night, Romney said:

You know, the great thing about running for president is that you get the chance also to talk about your experience as a governor and I'm proud of the fact that we took on a major problem in my state, and the problem was that we had a lot of kids without insurance, a lot of adults without insurance, but it added up to about 8% of our population. And we said you know what, we want to find a way to get those folks insured but we don't want to change anything for the 92% of the people that already have insurance. And so our plan dealt with those 8%, not the 92.

One of the problems with ObamaCare is he doesn't just deal with the people without insurance. He takes over healthcare for everyone. Then he does something else that Chris Christie said today. He said the problem with ObamaCare is he spends an extra trillion dollars and raises taxes. And raising taxes is one of the big problems, something we didn't do in Massachusetts. He also cuts Medicare, only ‑‑ but people out there talking about cutting Medicare, it's President Obama that did that. And I'm proud of what we were able to accomplish. I'll tell you this, though: We have the lowest number of kids as a percentage uninsured of any state in America. You have the highest. You have over ‑‑ I'm still speaking. I'm still speaking. I'm still speaking. We had ‑‑ we have less than 1% of our kids that are uninsured. You have a million kids uninsured in Texas. A million kids. Under President Bush the percentage of uninsured went down. Under your leadership, it's gone up. I care about people. Now, our plan isn't perfect. Glenn Hubbard is a fine fellow. I'll take a look at his quote. Some people say that. Just because people say something doesn't mean it's true. The truth is our plan is different and the people in Massachusetts, if they don't like it, they can get rid of it. Right now they favor it 3:1. But I'm not running for governor of Massachusetts. I'm running for president of the United States. And as president I will repeal ObamaCare, I'll grant a waiver on day one to get that started and I'll make sure that we return to the states what we had when I was governor: The right to care for our poor in the way we thought best for our respective states.

"Yeah, that was a smackdown," Glenn said.

"Romney is by far the best at this," Pat said of his debate performance.

"Even when he's saying things that are really questionable and somewhat disingenuous, he comes off as really authoritative on them. That's real difficult," Stu said.

Nevertheless, Glenn said that he was still impressed by the other candidates when it came to actual policy.

"I think Romney gets crushed by Ron Paul in the facts on, you know, the economy or on, you know, the Fed or any of that stuff, on printing money," Glenn said.

Glenn also took time to compliment Herman Cain, and said that he thinks the candidate is enjoying a lot of success right now due to his 9-9-9 tax proposal and his underdog status.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.
