Ann Coulter: Newt is "pompous and boring"

This morning Glenn spoke with the always enlightening, (and in the case of New Gingrich, brilliant) best-selling author, Ann Coulter (Who they both agree should frequent GBTV more often). After mulling over the President’s disturbing State of the Union, Glenn and Ann discussed which candidates have the potential to keep America from ever having to be exposed to such an anti-Constitutional address from an American president again …and the ones who don’t.

While Glenn and Ann may have different ‘2012 favorites,’ they certainly agree on this, Newt Gingrich is the wrong choice.

Ann pointed out, even if you don’t go deep into his political ideology like his love for FDR and Woodrow Wilson, “he likes amnesty for illegals, and he took $1.6 million from Freddie Mac.” The Tea Parties in Iowa and New Hampshire have been great, but it’s hard to understand what went on in South Carolina. “It’s going to be very hard to beat Obama,” something Ann thinks “should be said over and over again.” Which she reiterated by pointing out that Republicans have only beaten incumbent’s two times in the last century.

The two delved into Newt’s history in Washington …and some recently published doodles depicting him as “a little stick figure at the center of the universe,” with a “primary mission, advocate of civilization definer of civilization, teacher of the rules of civilization.” To which Glenn points out, “I don’t think the Pope describes himself as that.”

Ann, who was working on the Senate side in Washington, D.C. at this time added, “he had notes reminding himself to smile and look cuddly. And then after, you know, it all came crashing down with the ethics investigation, which was a real problem. I mean, for him to denounce it as, oh, this was just a partisan investigation, the congress and the House of Representatives was still majority Republican and there were a lot of good right wing Republicans on that committee and something like 90% of Republicans voted to reprimand Gingrich for abuse of a 501(c)(3).”

Both Glenn and Ann agree that it is hard to understand how Gingrich is getting the results in these primaries that he is. In Stu’s latest Blog, the national polls show Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have higher national favorability ratings—shocking. According to Ann, it wasn’t much better while he was serving in office—in a CNN poll at the time 49% found Newt Gingrich off-putting, too extreme, or scary, and Glenn and Ann agree, Newt is scary.

The other disturbing part of Newt’s rise to the top is how is supporters are beginning to behave like Ron Paul supporters. Ann has worked around politics and politicians for a long time, and says she’s “never seen this behavior from Republicans. We normally associate it with Democrats.” Ann covers the topic of fanaticism over political leaders on the left in her latest book, Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
