Rep. West to O'Brien: "We need to stay a Constitutional Republic"

This morning on radio, Glenn played audio of “journalist” Soledad O’Brien was interviewing Florida Rep. Allen West. Instead of talking about things that really matter with the Congressman, like the failing economy, high gas prices, national security, or anything else the American people actually care about, Soledad first tried to make Ted Nugent the topic of conversation. After that failed, she moved on to some comments West made about members of the communist party last week.

Here is video clip of West’s comments:

“You said there were 78 to 80 members of the communist party. You mean like card carrying members of the communist party?” O’Brien asked the Congressman.

Rep. West immediately called Soledad out for not playing the full clip, and responded by saying, “I talked about the progressive congressional caucus. We've been back and forth about this, and I've had to give quite a few a people a tutorial about the political spectrum of ideologies, and there's a thin separation. At the turn of the century, here in the United States of America, American communist had to rename themselves progressives, but the strategy and the tactics and the ideology still remains the same.”

“He's exactly historically – 100% right. The communists remain, but what they did is split,” Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain that the communists learned that they had to use progressive steps to eventually get where they want to go. That’s the idea behind the “progressive” movement. What progressives fail to do, Glenn pointed out, is ask one simple question: Progress to what? Whether it’s through socialism, progressivism, or revolution resulting in communism, the end result is the same – redistribution of wealth, the capping of salaries, income equality, land grabs so no one can have private property, etc…

Allen West continued his response to Soledad O’Brien saying, “For a caucus that actually wanted to have a constitutional amendment to redistribute wealth in the United States of America. I don't think that's in keeping with the principles and values of this country.”

O’Brien responded to West’s comments by disingenuously asking him to name the members of Congress he was referring to repeatedly. After telling her to just took look up the list of progressive caucus members, it turns out that O’Brien already had the list in her hand. Of course she immediately started naming the Congress members who could easily be made a controversial issue, like Keith Ellison, Raul Grijalva, and Maxine Waters.

“There is no difference anymore between the communist, and the Socialist, and the anarchist,” Glenn interjected. “There will be again. At this point they're all joined on one purpose, and destroy the western way of life. Destroy capitalism, ownership, income equality, spread the wealth around. That's their goal.”

“You can call it whatever you want,” West told Soledad during the interview as she continued to press him.

“I’m calling it this,” West clarified. “Communist, progressive, Marxist, statist, another term being used. I’m looking at things they believe in. If you don’t think we have to stand upon truth and be able to identify and clearly contrast the different principles and values and ideologies of governance here in this country, then we’re never going to get to the fact of accepting the true debate happening in America. We don’t need a bureaucratic nanny state. We need to stay a Constitutional Republic. I think a lot of people need to study that and understand what it is.”

“Forget about the labels,” Glenn said. “What is it they actually believe? What do their actions say? When you put that next to the Communist Manifesto and the U.S. Constitution, which one is it closest to? If it's closest to the Communist Manifesto, is that where you to go? Let's forget about the name and the title, is that what you want? Let's have that debate. That's the real debate that's going on, but nobody is talking about it. Yesterday we were talking about Ted Nugent, or we're talking about food deserts, or we're talking about the scandal with the Secret Service, or we're talking about how evil Romney is because he wants to take birth control pills off of the bathroom counter of every woman in America. We're talking about something ridiculous. We're not talking about which direction you want to go, because that's all this is – direction. Are you going to go towards Marxism or towards Madison – either one, you decide. That's what America is about currently. We're not having an honest debate. The reason we're not is because of people like Soledad O'Brien.”

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.
