Coulter responds to controversial tweet, debate performances on radio

Ann Coulter is getting a lot of attention for a controversial tweet she sent out after last night's debate.

Glenn joked with Ann, saying, "I don't know why you would call Bob Schieffer a retard."

"Well, I think a lot of people wanted the more 'Newt Gingrich, in your face' approach," Ann responded, adding, "I think a lot of us were surprised that Romney didn't go after Obama on Libya. That he said he approved of Mubarak being deposed. He did not coming back and really hit Obama hard with some of the completely insane things he said."

"I realized at the end of the debate only one man on that stage looked presidential," Ann added noting many of the tacky, snarky comments President Obama made were beneath the office of the President of the United States.

"I think if you were watching the two of them, and you had no idea, and you would say this one is President and this one is some street fighter," Glenn responded.

"Instead of rising up [to the office of the presidency], he lowered everything around him," Glenn added.

Ann found President Obama's performance to feel desperate and flailing. And surprisingly, found it smart of Romney not to hit hard on the cover up in Libya, because: 1. It's what Obama was expecting and 2. After last week's debate, the media had been covering the incident quite well.

She pointed out that whenever Obama was off the topic of Libya, he was discussing school teachers, killing Osama bin Laden, pandering to women, and Russia — who he has already made deals to work with after the election.

"There was a lot of embarrassing pander to women," Ann told Glenn.

"What is the approach here?" Stu asked. "Is there some sort of Obama internal research that shows that 93% of voters are teachers who want free contraception?" What's the approach here? They constantly bring it back to the same topics."

Ann believes they're trying to rally the base, which at this point in the game means his campaign is in trouble. At this point both candidates should be trying to win over the last few undecided voters who will ultimately determine the results of this election, which is exactly what Mitt Romney appeared to be trying to do last night.

"If you're in those swing states and you're just beginning to pay attention, and you're getting your facts about who Mitt Romney is from the President, he looked kind and gentle. He does not look like George W. Bush. He looked in control of himself. And he didn't look snarky," Glenn said. "I think if you're a woman in a swing state you don't want to go to war — nobody wants to go to war, especially women — you don't want to go to war. He now has people saying, 'I kind of like that guy. He was okay. He seemed to have the facts and he doesn't want to go to a war, and the President he'll never say this out loud.' Again, the President gave me the facts on Mitt Romney, and he was wrong there."

"That's right," Ann agreed. "Women, curiously since 9/11, foreign policy has been a much bigger issue for women than for men. It is an important issue. Women don't want to go to war, and Romney could not have been clearer."

"I definitely think that Romney is going to win. The only reason I shy away from a landslide is like Yogi Berra said it's hard predicting especially the future," she told Glenn.

"Apparently immediately after the debate Obama's chances in Ohio went down substantially on Intrade," she added.

Coulter also took issues with Obama's lie that Romney would have let G.M. collapse without government support.

"Of course Romney with his background, his father being the head of an auto company, did not say that the government should not provide support. It would have been a way to more honestly wind down a company, and eliminate some debts and honor other debts, and not just honoring the ones of your union buddies," she said.

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."
