Newt Gingrich absolutely wrecks Chris Matthews

Most weeks aren’t good weeks for Chris Matthews, but this one has been exceptionally rough for the MSNBC host. After getting thoroughly dismantled yesterday morning by Tom Brokaw, Mika and an the RNC Chair, Matthews thought it would be a good idea to bring try the exact same talking points against Newt Gingrich.

It didn't go very well.

It doesn't help that Matthews started the interview off by being combative, "You've engaged in what I consider very problematic rhetoric…"

Telling the former speaker he finds him to be a problem - great way to start an interview against a man known for dismantling the mainstream media.

After continuing to criticize Newt Gingrich, Matthews tried to tie Newt's "food stamp president" comments (comments he formerly accused Newt of being a racist for making) to Donald Trump's birther claims.

How did Newt respond to Matthews's nonsense?

“A ‘food stamp president’ is the guy whose policies are so destructive, that he creates the longest unemployment since the Great Depression and he puts more people on food stamps — most of them white — than anybody else.”

“Why do you assume food stamp refers to blacks?” he added.

“What kind of racist thinking do you have? You‘re being a racist because you assume they’re black!”

"During the primaries we were, at times, tough on Newt Gingrich's policies, but there is nothing more gratifying than when Newt Gingrich gets on a roll and starts destroying someone on the left," Stu said. "It's why, I think, Republicans and conservatives like him so much, because he is unafraid and he just destroys Chris Matthews here."

Stu continued to point out how obsessed by the issue of race Chris Matthews is. Every debate, every talking point that goes against the right, they always come back to race.

Pat gives this example:

I forgot he was black for an hour? So…usually Chris Matthews is really cognizant of this…" Pat joked. "But, for about an hour, he forgot that."

"Wow. Imagine the great internal triumph he must have had when he realized he hadn't actually looked at the President for the color of his skin for sixty full minutes!" Stu responded sarcastically. "What an accomplishment for Chris Matthews."

"I mean this is an idiotic set of viewpoints," Stu continued. "He admits on national television that 24 hours a day, 7 days a week he thinks of the President as black and notices he's black. But for full sixty minute period he was able to overlook that and act as if it was an achievement."

So what's the deal with Chris Matthews? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, if you disagree with the ideology of President Obama, he's probably going to call you a racist.

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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
