Beck hits back at Gingrich attack with Newt's own words

Glenn has been hearing from Newt Gingrich supporters a lot the past few days, many of which are not very happy with him right now. Some are calling him a liar, some are telling Glenn that it’s not about Newt, it’s about beating Obama, and today we even had a caller tell Glenn he just “doesn’t really understand redemption.”

While Glenn obviously understands everyone’s fears around what another four years of Obama would look like, he lets Newt speak for himself. Glenn isn’t putting words in his mouth or taking him out of context, in fact, he even had Newt on his radio program after going through much of what he’s been discussing.

Glenn has spent the last few years hammering what a progressive is, the direction they’ve been taking our country in for the past 100 years, and why we are at a tipping point if that doesn’t change soon. This has been the core focus of his program the last few years—restoring America. As the election gets closer many seem to be taking Glenn’s unwavering views as an attack, but Glenn is at the same position he’s been since he took on progressives on both sides of the aisle at CPAC in 2010—and as always, using their words to make his case, not his.

Well, like it or not, the audio Glenn played this morning speaks for itself. Newt Gingrich went on-air with Jack and Ted of WFLA in Tampa, FL, and responded to the recent airtime Glenn has spent discussing him, his record, and his progressive tendencies.

This is how it went down…

VOICE: Claiming that you are a progressive, that your favorite presidents are FD or let's see, Teddy Roosevelt and then you said the greatest president of the century is FDR, and what is your response to that vis à vis conservatives?

GINGRICH: Well, that is baloney.

VOICE: That's a pretty good one.

GINGRICH: You know, I don't know what Glenn Beck's problem is but he obviously has never read my writing. I've written three novels about George Washington, four novels that involve Abraham Lincoln. The fact is the greatest American president is Washington. The second greatest American president is Lincoln. If you measure his World War II achievements, FDR's an extraordinary leader. We defeat Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, Japan in three years and eight months. It is an extraordinary act of leadership. Now, I disagree with him about the New Deal, I disagree with him about his liberal policies. But as a war leader, he's extraordinary.

Well, Glenn didn’t have to defend himself against Newt’s comments. Instead, he let Newt take care of that himself. This is audio every conservative voter needs to hear before going to the polls to make their GOP nominee selection.

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

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.
