Newt vs. Mitt - who's worse?

It's looking more and more like either Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney will end up being the GOP Presidential nominee. Both aren't exactly the ideal conservative, but since we're apparently stuck with them - which one is worse? Glenn, Pat & Stu run down the positives and negatives of each...It isn't pretty.

Immigration:

Glenn: "If you do amnesty and you still ‑‑ people are still going to come over and so then you're going to repeat what we did in the 1980s."

Pat: "Everybody keeps bringing up what Reagan did. Reagan screwed up. That was a mistake to grant amnesty to three million people. He did it under certain conditions. He thought that they were all going to ‑‑ all of them were going to get, you know, cards. They didn't. And he thought that we'd close the border or seal it off better. We didn't."

Stu: "An American citizen that breaks a law every year for 25 years likely winds up in prison. There's no opportunity for an American citizen's family to go with them to prison. With an illegal immigrant, we're saying that you're not allowed to be here anymore, at least your family's allowed to go with you where you're going."

Stu: "Remember politically, yeah, the DREAM Act is good politics. You can win votes by supporting giving away free things and free passes to large groups of people. Yes, we all know you can win votes that way. That's not what we're looking for, is it?"

Healthcare:

Stu: "I think they have eliminated everyone else in their mind outside of Romney, and a lot of them don't want Romney. But it's like, if you don't want Romney, why? Because he supported the individual mandate for healthcare? So did Newt this year."

Stu: "Mitt actually enacted the healthcare and Newt didn't. He just supported it."

Glenn: "But let's remember that Mitt is saying things like, 'That was only for Massachusetts. That was only for Massachusetts.'"

Stu: "Newt Gingrich not only supported (universal healthcare) on a national level, he supported it in 1993 and 2011. He's got a 20‑year record of support on that."

Glenn: "I'm not going to sit here and defend Mitt Romney and RomneyCare because RomneyCare is a nightmare. He doesn't ‑‑ I don't think he sees it as a nightmare. He sees it as something the state wanted to do. He tried to do his best. I think that's a sellout of your values, quite honestly, on small government. You don't do it even if the rest of the, rest of the state wants you to do it, you don't do it. Sorry, I'm not going to do it. You stand on principles. So I'm not going to defend him on this. However there is a difference between ‑‑ I've never, ever had a problem with Massachusetts wanting to do their own state‑run healthcare. That's the states' rights to do. If that's what they want to do, they have a right to do that."

Global Warming

Stu: "Newt Gingrich has been worse on global warming than Mitt Romney." "Mitt said a lot of stupid things about it but he wasn't ever on a couch with Nancy Pelosi advocating what she wants. I mean, there's a ‑‑ at the very least they're equal on these issues."

Later in the show, a listener called in to say he was much more concerned about Mitt Romney than he was Newt Gingrich. Watch the conversation below:

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
