What do the Ron Paul newsletters say about his leadership skills?

Congressman Ron Paul is the latest GOP candidate to take a leading role in a controversy this election season. Newsletters released throughout the 90’s included racist comments, anti-Israel comments, among other controversial statements. Before delving into the topic, Glenn jokingly pointed that “usually that causes real problems if you want to point out somebody might be racist. So let's not even go there.”

The real question we should be asking after a decade of newsletters Ron Paul ran that had many racist and anti-Israel comments is how has he responded?

Glenn: “So ten years of this kind of stuff in this and his defense is now, "I'm a bad editor. I'm just a bad managing editor. I didn't know that stuff was all in there. It shouldn't have been in there," et cetera, et cetera. Forget about whether he believes it or not. Let's take him at face value. If you can't run a newsletter, you shouldn't be given the keys to the United States of America. I run a network, I run a radio show, run a publishing division, a newsletter. What others? Stage shows, we do all the things. Believe me, if one of those divisions is racist or putting racist things in for a decade, if I don't catch it – I shouldn’t be allowed to run a shoe store.

Glenn later pointed out, “I got news for ya. If somebody writes something and prints it under my name, even if I am paying them to do it and they write that 95 to 97 or more are semi or entirely criminal? I think I try to explain that to the American people that whole ghostwriting idea.”

While Glenn still agrees with Ron Paul on the Fed, and think’s “he's the only one who believes it’s about the destruction of the currency, he's the only one who believes in, shut it all down,” the stance Paul takes on Israel, 9/11, and the his self-accountability should be a warning sign to undecided voters.

In the last hour of today’s radio show, Glenn played an audio clip of Ron Paul answering a question from a 9/11 truther.

“Why don't you come out about the truth about 9/11? “

Paul responded, “Because I can't handle the controversy.” After hearing the clip, Pat asked a question every voter on the fence with Ron Paul should ask. “Now, if you don't believe any of it, if you don't believe the 9/11 truther stuff, is that how you answer that question: I can't handle the controversy?”

If Ron Paul has been being honest about his opinions with the American people and his supporters, what could really be so controversial about saying “Al-Qaeda did it”? If he is being honest, do we really want a president who won’t stand boldly on an issue as important as the attack that killed over 3,000 innocent Americans on our own soil?

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.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

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."
