Bachmann calls Gingrich a "frugal socialist", responds to accusations of homophobia

Is Newt Gingrich a “frugal socialist”? That’s what Congresswoman Michele Bachmann called him during her appearance on the Glenn’s radio program today.

In response to Newt’s comments about his support of the Medicare prescription drug program, Bachmann said, “Well, my response is it doesn't help to have a frugal socialist. That's really what we're talking about is managing socialism and trying to be a frugal socialist.”

“Because you're looking at proposals and programs that are in effect redistribution of wealth and socialism based. And are we going to have real change in the country or are we going to have frugal socialists,” she added.

What would Bachmann do?

“What I would do is have free markets and healthcare. The problem has been the federal government intervening in the free market system in healthcare and that has driven the cost up everywhere. And so what we need to do is go back to allowing people to buy any health insurance policy they want anywhere in the United States with no federal minimum mandate requirements,” she said.

“Across state lines and then pay for their policies with their own tax free money, their copays, their deductibles, anything that's related and then have true medical malpractice reform. Because the real problem in healthcare is cost. And it's the federal government that's driving up the cost.”

Bachmann also addressed some accusations that have been hurled her way, including that she is homophobic. Recently, a young child whose mother is a lesbian confronted her on accusations that she and her husband think homosexuals need “fixing”.

“Well, of course not. You know, I believe that we love all people, and I do. I love everyone. I don't necessarily agree with them but I love them, I'm kind to them, I'm gracious to them because the golden rule is treat others as you want to be treated,” she said.

“I think it's shameless to use a little boy and to put that little boy forward to advance an agenda issue.

“I believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman,” she added.

Glenn wanted to know why she was so firm on her stance on this.

“Why? Well, because number one, it's foundational in the scriptures and in the scriptures of, you know, Christian and Judeo. And if you go through the major religions of the world and really through 5,000 years of recorded human history, you can't find a tribe or a nation or a people group where marriage has been anything other than between men and women. Now, some of have had more than one man or more than one woman, but it's always been between man and woman,” she said.

“I believe it's morally right,” she said.

Bachmann also said she does not support civil unions because “they are the equivalency of marriage.” When situations arrive regarding hospital visitations or money, she felt those were “contract situations”.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
