E.D. Hill: Paul Ryan just made Obama look old, outdated, unhip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 Hipster-in-chief look old, outdated and lame.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.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
