Mary Matalin joins the show to talk cable news, the GOP...and tortures Stu

Yesterday CNN announced some major changes in their lineup. Among these was a host of names that will no longer appear on the network. Two of the most notable being James Carville, and a personal friend of Glenn's, Mary Matalin. This morning, when Matalin called into the show she had a different focus. The former CNN contributor didn't spend much time discussing her former employer, instead she mostly spent her time on the show torturing Stu.

You see, Stu prides himself on having attending the Super Bowl the last six years in a row, and this year is no different. However this year, instead of hunting down tickets once he arrives, Stu is trying to take advantage of Glenn's friendship with Mary Matalin. What can she do to help? Well, Matalin and her husband are co-chairs of this year's Super Bowl Host Committee.

"Oh, Glenn, I'm great and I've been meaning to call," Mary said as she greeted Glenn over the phone this morning. "You know I listen every day but I haven't been able to listen, I've been so busy.  I'm co‑hosting the Super Bowl here and I've been meaning to call to see if Pat wanted to come to anything."

Ouch. Sorry, Stu.

Pat and Glenn, of course, played right along. Noting that he can't make it, but that Mary should auction off for charity. That was someone with a lot of extra money [i.e. Stu] could bid on it and do some good.

"How about game day tickets or something like that?" Mary joked.

The ideas kept rolling in — none of which were good for Stu.

"How about this:  Pat and Stu come down.  Pat goes to the game and we auction off walk‑ins to the free things with Stu," she said. "How is that?"

After quite a bit more mocking, Glenn got down to business and asked Mary about her departure from CNN. Of all the people they actually kept around, he couldn't believe they would let her go.

"I feel the same way leaving as you did," Mary responded.

"Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I'm free at last?" Glenn joked.

"I'm raising kids. I have to control my schedule," she said. "They [CNN] have built all new studios and they want people there that can get there on a moment's notice. And not only can I not do that, I'm too old in my life to do that. I don't want to follow those kind of stories.  So I'm not ‑‑ I have many friends there, I've had them for a million years, I love John King.  I love Anderson."

Glenn noted his fondness of Cooper and Blitzer from his time at CNN.

"I think they are honorable men. I really do. I like them. They are nice guys," he said.

Glenn transitioned to the state of the GOP, explaining his feelings that the party is basically over.

"I'm done with the GOP.  How do we hold onto our country when the GOP is just ‑‑ they are just folding on absolutely everything and I don't know what they stand for anymore," Glenn said to Mary.

"Let's go to first principle," Mary responded. "Why ‑‑ the first principle for me is the reason I became a conservative, growing up in south Chicago, I didn't know any Republicans." The college I went to, 17,000 kids, there were 11 Republicans. The reason I became a conservative is because those were the days of this wave of, this new wave of 'progressivism feminism'. It was like a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bike. I said, "that's it. I love men, I want men in my life." I didn't want to do that group think thing. I'm going back to first principles here."

Much like Glenn, Mary moved to an area with a stronger community. Where they can fix their educational system and surround themselves with good entrepreneurial people.

"You're exactly ‑‑ Mary, that's exactly where I am.  I don't care about Washington anymore," he told her. "We have to watch them. We have to make sure that we're paying attention. They're out of control. I don't believe in either party right now but I do believe in the American people. I do believe we have to fix our families, fix our street, fix our town."

"Fix our state," he added. "If our states are all rock solid, Washington, Washington needs us more than we need them and we have to put that ‑‑ we have to put that situation back into play."

"When we moved here, I started listening to you every day, and you changed my perspective. You changed my life. You've made me a more committed citizen and every day think of how can I help somebody, what can I do to have an impact," Mary said to Glenn. "And if everybody's in the know knew that there's so many people out there that think like that. Just knowing that there are more of us, as you say, and all the news that you do bring to us -- that's a huge ‑‑ that's a calling.  Nobody else can do it.  Nobody's been determined enough to do it."

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.
