Santorum: "Romney in bed with Barack Obama", responds to attacks from Arlen Specter

Arlen Specter has come out on MSNBC today and said that he felt that Rick Santorum is too extreme to be President, and that Santorum is misrepresenting events from 2004. In this week’s GOP debate, Santorum said that he had endorsed Arlen Specter in order to get Specter to agree to Bush’s judicial nominees. Glenn, who interviewed Santorum for a full hour on GBTV last night, asked Santorum to respond to the attacks.

Politico reports:

“Where you have Senator Santorum’s views, so far to the right, with his attitude on women in the workplace and gays and the bestiality comments and birth control, I do not think it is realistic for Rick Santorum to represent America,” Specter said on MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown.”

Specter also said that Santorum had misrepresented him in Wednesday’s presidential debate. Santorum had claimed that he had endorsed Specter on the condition that Specter agree to the confirmation of President Bush’s judicial nominees.

“We never had a conversation about his support for me in 2004. It was just assumed. We had always supported each other. The issue about my backing the president’s nominees came up after I was elected and the question was on my chairmanship,” Specter said. “That is flatly not true.”

Video of the segment is below:

“All I would say is the proof is in the pudding,” Santorum said. “Arlen Specter stood up and defended Alito and Roberts every moment they were attacked. He was the first one out there defending them, doing exactly what he said he was going to do, which is work as chairman of the committee.”

“The fact is what I accounted to you is exactly what happened,” Santorum said of the meeting.

Santorum said that he’s pretty sure that Alito would not be on the court today without Specter’s support.

“Arlen Specter is a Democrat. Arlen Specter doesn’t want to see Rick Santorum elected. And I can just tell you that was a condition for me to step up there and support him at the end of the campaign,” Santorum said.

Santorum also took umbrage with Mitt Romney’s attacks from this weeks debate, wherein Romney went after Santorum for endorsing Specter.

“By the way, the person who attacked me on this was Mitt Romney who supported liberal activist judges on the Supreme Court of Massachusetts. Not one. Not two, but about thirty-six of them. And for him to attack me on who supported all these liberal candidates,” Santorum said. “Here’s a guy attacking me on standing up for my principles and making sure that we got Supreme Court Justices nominated.”

Santorum also accused Romney of being against Reagan conservatism, and for having the same policies on Obama when it comes to eliminating charitable deductions for the wealthy.

“Mitt Romney is in bed with Barack Obama on destroying these vital mediating institutions of our society by starving them of money from the very people that keep these organizations alive and well in our society,” Santorum said.

Glenn did ask Santorum why he has only given 4% of his income to charity when tithing requires 10%. Santorum did say that he does give speeches for severely discounted rates and has done other things that don’t show up on tax returns, but that he did need to do better.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
