E.D. Hill: Paul Ryan just made Obama look old, outdated, unhip

Glenn interviewed E.D. Hill on radio today to talk about day 2 of the Republican National Convention. She made an observation that Glenn felt was spot on - Paul Ryan actually made Mr. Hipster-in-chief look old, outdated and lame. And that’s before he got into any substance, which of course was so devastating to the left they immediately went into attack mode. Check out the interview in the clip above from the radio show!

Transcript of Interview:

GLENN: Let's go to E.D. Hill who is doing our coverage on The Blaze of the convention. Hello, E.D., how are ya?

E.D. HILL: Hey, I'm doing great. I love being here.

GLENN: I am so thrilled to have you a part of it. I mean, been a big fan of yours for a long time and miss you on Fox and Friends and it's great to have you on the network.

E.D. HILL: Thank you.

GLENN: Tell me about the feeling at the convention. It feels different than the conventions of past. It feels like they're onto something, big time.

E.D. HILL: You know, I think a bit of what I have ‑‑ I had felt at this convention seems to differ from what a lot of other folks have thought, and I've been covering conventions for a long time. I will not tell you how long, but let's say it goes back to Minnesota. And I was blown away by the people. No one else seemed to be talking about as much. Like the ones they were expecting the greatness from, I thought they were not good speeches, nice stump speeches, helpful during, you know, during the election, but I was blown away by the other folks. I was blown away by the (inaudible), by ‑‑

GLENN: Fortuno.

E.D. HILL: Mike Huckabee, Fortuno, Susana Martinez, of course Nikki Haley. Artur Davis I thought made such a convincing argument for why Democrats, moderate Democrats should be wide open in this election: I was really excited and energized when I listened to them.

GLENN: As I'm watching this, there is a split in the party. I mean, John McCain was just, woof.

STU: (Laughing.)

E.D. HILL: I'm so glad you said that.

GLENN: Wow, it was bad.

E.D. HILL: You know, that's when you and I, I think both do. We kind of call it as we see it.

GLENN: Yeah.

E.D. HILL: And you're dead on. Ouch.

GLENN: It was ‑‑ and there's a few of them.

E.D. HILL: Yep.

GLENN: That are just ‑‑ and it feels like 1951.

E.D. HILL: Yeah.

GLENN: It immediate ‑‑ once they take the stage ‑‑ and it has nothing to do with their age.

E.D. HILL: Yep.

GLENN: It has everything to do with their ideas and the way they present them. It's just a different era.

E.D. HILL: It is. But what I saw was this is what stood out the most. Man, did he make the right call with the number two pick because there was one guy who really sold it and that was Paul Ryan. As I watched the rest of the folks, good ideas, smart, nice people. However, they did not even come close to selling it like Paul Ryan, who you can tell is an absolute firm believer in what he says and what he stands for.

GLENN: You said last night and I think this is the most astute comment I've heard from anybody on Paul Ryan: You didn't think it was possible to make Barack Obama look old, but Paul Ryan did.

E.D. HILL: He did. I mean, I was expecting him to go crowd‑surfing at the end of it.

STU: (Laughing.)

E.D. HILL: You could feel it. You could feel it in the crowd. And I did not attend any Barack Obama speeches in person, but one of my kids did and was a huge Barack Obama fan. Voted for Barack Obama, thought he was the next coming. I'm telling ya that's how much, you know, she loved him. And she said earlier in the election cycle, she said, "You know, I don't think I'm going to go to vote because he just hasn't done it for me." This is the guy who has now energized her, and that's saying a lot.

GLENN: I'm telling ya that's exactly what I thought. This guy is credible. He is ‑‑ he does not feel like a politician.

E.D. HILL: No.

GLENN: And he feels like somebody that ‑‑ somebody like my daughters could get behind and say, "I believe that guy. That guy I believe."

E.D. HILL: Exactly, and you know what? I'm going to get behind him, too, because I love AC/DC.

GLENN: Real quick tonight any idea ‑‑ is it Clint Eastwood that's going to show up tonight?

E.D. HILL: I did find out this morning who one of the people who had been invited was. Elisabeth Hasselbeck had been invited to come down, and she is not able to. So I'm ‑‑ but that clearly is the area they are going to. So it must be an entertainment type. Folks have said Nancy Reagan. I don't see that. Clint Eastwood, maybe. We'll see. We'll see.

GLENN: Really? This was worth announcing? I mean ‑‑

STU: Wow.

GLENN: I love Elisabeth. She is one of the bravest women on television. I don't know how she does it every day. So I love her. But really? That was the announce ‑‑ that was worth announcing?

E.D. HILL: I don't know that she was the only person, but that was one of the people that they reached out to. So who knows.

PAT: Wow.

E.D. HILL: It could be a parade.

PAT: Big deal. If it was Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

STU: Well, she spoke at the 2004 convention? The one we were ‑‑ whatever one we were at, Glenn, she spoke at I remember.

GLENN: She was good, if I remember.

STU: Yeah, she was good. She was great.

PAT: I mean, I'm sure, but come on. Really? Is that worth the buildup? Not at all.

GLENN: All I want to hear ‑‑

PAT: Not at all.

GLENN: I want Romney to take the stage tonight and knock it out of the park.

STU: Yes, please.

PAT: Yep. He needs to do it.

GLENN: Just fill America with confidence that you can fix this economy.

PAT: Mmm‑hmmm.

GLENN: Because I think he's ‑‑

E.D. HILL: Paul Ryan has set the bar pretty high, though.

PAT: He really did.

GLENN: Oh, I tell you he really did.

PAT: Really did.

GLENN: One of the best speeches.

STU: If he could do 75% of what Ryan did last night, it's going to ‑‑ it's a huge win for Republicans.

GLENN: Huge win. Huge win. Let me tell you something. Joe Biden had to be crappin' his pants black last night. Just crappin' his ‑‑

E.D. HILL: You know, that's exactly what I was thinking. If I were Joe Biden, I would just be crawling under the covers right now.

GLENN: Oh, he ‑‑

E.D. HILL: Because I'd be cringing at the thought of having to debate this guy.

GLENN: Paul Ryan will ‑‑

PAT: Crush him.

GLENN: ‑‑ cream him.

PAT: Crush him.

GLENN: Cream him.

E.D. HILL: I know.

GLENN: And he will do it with respect. That was the best thing about his speech last night. Total respect. Total respect. He looked like a good ‑‑ I can't believe I'm saying this but he looked like a good kid. He looked like a ‑‑

E.D. HILL: Yeah.

GLENN: ‑‑ good guy.

PAT: He's 42 years old.

GLENN: I know, and I hate Hayes guts.

PAT: He's only a little younger than we are.

GLENN: I hate his guts for that, but that's a different story. E. D., thanks a lot. I appreciate it.

E.D. HILL: Thank you.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
