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.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
