Here’s the conversation the GOP needs to have

As the stats keep pouring in, one key factor is moving to the top of the list as the main culprit: the old guard running the campaign show for the GOP has got to go. Glenn read from great posts by Michael Walsh and Jennifer Rubin on radio today which lay out the new strategy the GOP must take.

"This is the conversation that I think we should be having but they will not have this one on Fox.  This is the conversation," Glenn said as he began to read from the articles. "You need a new strategy, gang.  You need a new strategy, and it ain't ‑‑ these clowns in Washington, these clowns in New York, the clowns that are all the operatives, they don't know ‑‑ they don't know anything.  And we've got to stop giving them power."

Rubin wrote:

No more 2004 Bush campaign veterans: What they know (polling, ad making) is wrong and what they don’t know (cable ad buying, new media) is too vast. A new crop of savvy, young campaign operatives who are culturally sophisticated and new media knowledgeable has to be groomed and culled so it can run a 21st century presidential campaign.

She later added:

The big GOP money should henceforth divert at least a tiny fraction of the dough it poured into Karl Rove’s useless American Crossroads super PAC and its ilk and establish its own, alternative media (not Fox News) that functions both as a sword and shield against the decaying, corrupt journalistic establishment. After all, the Republicans lost with the super PACS, and they can just as easily lose without them, and at a fraction of the cost. But they can’t win without a media operation that can neutralize the 15 to 20 points that MSM advocacy regularly contributes to the Democrats. The only way to beat the media is to replace the media — and if you don’t think the media won this election for Obama, you’re delusional.

"That is absolutely on the money," Glenn said. "And that is the only conversation that I have heard anywhere that is actually saying it."

Glenn is working hard right now to do exactly what Rubin is suggesting with TheBlaze.

"Now, here's what I asked you the other day after the election:  I'm going to start a 60 Minutes show.  We are going to do a 60 Minutes, but it is $4 to $5 million minimum to do that show every single year.  I'm going to start a Nightline show, but this one is going to be ‑‑ this one is going to be specifically on the Middle East and the Muslim Brotherhood and everything else.  This one is wildly, wildly politically incorrect," Glenn explained. " We have to double our subscriptions.  Every dime that we make we're pouring back into the product.  We have a lot of ground that has to be covered.  I need your help.  If you haven't subscribed, please subscribe."

Stu added, "This thing, you know, Glenn didn't start TheBlaze on November 7th, the day after the election:  "Holy crap, we better start a media organization."  This started years ago and the development started years ago and it's been built up slowly over the past couple of years as you've seen it.  But the reason is something that I mean, you just read it in that quote.  It's not obviously about the GOP but it's about conservative values, it's about the principles that we all share and it's about making sure that they get not some untrue spin room treatment but just a fair shot."

"You'll see we're changing a lot of stuff in the way we do because honestly I have a plan for 2016.  My plan was to have this thing up and running by 2016, really up and running.  Full you 24‑hour cable news channel by 2016 and then some.  I believe we have until 2013.  We have to do this by 2013 and we need your help.  Need your help.  So if you can subscribe, please do that.  Blaze.com/TV."

 

 

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
