Lead up to Iowa Caucus: Michele Bachmann

Glenn welcomed Congresswoman Michele Bachmann back to the radio show today as part of a series of interviewing profiling GOP candidates before the first primary in January.

“Coming up this week and on Caucus Day we have Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann. Suspiciously there's two people that are missing there. One is Newt Gingrich and one is Mitt Romney. The invitation has been made to both,” Glenn said.”

Glenn said that it had been a few years since Romney had been on, but that “he's a nice guy. I like him personally. I think he is a man of decency, but he has declined to be on the program.”

Glenn added that Newt had done his “tour of duty” after last week’s appearance.

Glenn welcomed the Congresswoman to the program and asked her whether or not she was getting frustrated with how many debates there have been so far.

“Actually I think they've been very good, to be honest with you. All kidding aside. Because what they've revealed is they've really pulled back the layers on who people are. And I think that's been a good thing because there's been a lot of surprises along the way. During the course of these debates people have learned things and it's affected people's views on the candidates,” she said.

“I think we've found people's demeanor and style and where they stand on issues and I think in this last one that we had this last weekend, we found that there's really not a dime's worth of difference between some of these candidates. They agree on almost everything and what's even scarier is they agree with Barack Obama,” she added.

Bachmann specifically addressed her “Newt Romney” comment, point out how similar to two candidates are to each other and to Barack Obama.

“Because if you look at their record and if you look at what they've stood for, both of them stand for the healthcare mandate. That's what the Supreme Court is taking up right now to determine constitutionality and Newt Gingrich has been a huge advocate for it for 20 years, including right up until this May. Conveniently just before he threw his hat in to run for president. And Governor Romney is the only governor in the history of the United States to only implement a healthcare mandate in his state.”

“Both of them are big government people,” she said.

Bachmann appealed to Tea Party supporters to do whatever they can to help her and her campaign over the next few weeks.

“Either come to Iowa, make phone calls from home or donate or get on your knees and say some prayers and we will turn the country around. We'll take the country back with a real Tea Partier with real Tea Party ideas,” she said.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
