Glenn's interview with Congresswoman Bachmann

Presidential candidate and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann took time out of her busy schedule and stopped by Glenn's NYC radio studio today for an interview. Glenn believes Bachmann is one of the few trustworthy people in Washington, D.C. and it's hard not to admire her when hearing just a portion of where she derives her beliefs.

She told Glenn:

I'm not ashamed of that. I became a Christian when I was 16 years old. I bowed my knee and gave my heart to Jesus Christ. Our family had gone from middle class overnight. We lost everything. We lost our home. I watched my mom put all of our wedding gifts and pretty things on card tables in the driveway and it was all sold. And what I saw from that situation is really the American ethic, which is no one owes you a living. You know, we were down to nothing and so my mother said to us, we don't have anything, we've got our faith, we're going to make this. And I mean no condemnation to anyone, but my mother said to us, no one in our family's ever taken public assistance and we won't, either, and I didn't see my dad for six years after that. And so when I was 12, she made $4800 a year and she couldn't buy my glasses, she couldn't buy my clothes, I had to buy my lunch at school and so I got jobs babysitting. And so I had to learn very quickly what it was to raise the responsibilities of adulthood. And I just want to say that sometimes suffering and deprivation are the greatest lessons you can ever have. You know, it was a gift for our family. My brothers all became very successful people. We all learned what it was to hold together as a family and make it. And what that did is it broke my heart, too, for children that are in challenging situations. So when my husband and I got married, we started taking foster children into our home and over the years we took 23 foster children in. We raised them, we launched them into the world, and we saw that they were failing in school and so we started the first K‑12 charter school for at‑risk kids in the country. It's still going on. And that's what we've tried to do.

Bachmann also said she would be a staunch supporter of Israel if elected.

"It is a modern miracle that we are seeing in Israel. And the United States has traditionally stood with Israel. Harry Truman, eleven minutes after Israel declared her sovereignty said that the United States recognized Israel's sovereignty. That's the greatest thing that he could have done to stand by Israel. President Obama's the first president in modern history not to stand by Israel. That's the difference."

The candidate also feared for the future of the country.

"I think that we are headed for harder times than people realize right now. We are seeing on the streets already Occupy Wall Street and like I said in our previous segment, there's a guy that I just talked to here in New York City who said that he was at his union meeting and the union voted to give $5,000 to Occupy Wall Street. "

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
