“That is flatly untrue.” Sen. Jeff Flake denies reports that he is pro gun control

On yesterday’s radio program, Glenn talked about the interesting policy decisions Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has made since being elected to the Senate. After joining the Gang of Eight to work on comprehensive immigration reform, there was buzz that Sen. Flake was considering giving into gun-control legislation too.

“I want to start the hour with a possible correction or at least benefit of the doubt at this point,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Yesterday we told you that there were words going around that Jeff Flake looked like he was willing to change his vote on Manchin/Toomey because of the Internet sales tax [legislation].We had some pretty good sources on that one, but [Sen. Flake] says that's absolutely not true.”

After the show yesterday, Sen. Flake’s office reached out with a comment to clarify his position on gun-control. “I want to read what his press person said, so give him the benefit of the doubt because Jeff Flake is a friend. I like him,” Glenn said. “I know him, I respect him, I was for him in his election, and I think he has been very, very good as a congressman. He's one that we really hoped would go in and change the tone of the Senate and be able to stand.”

Glenn read the statement he received from Sen. Flake’s press office:

Senator Flake has not changed his position on the Manchin/Toomey amendment. He remains opposed to it after voting against it last month. His position on background checks has not changed. There seems to be some confusion in the blogosphere particularly that Senator Flake would be willing to reverse his vote on Manchin/Toomey in exchange for no Internet sales tax. This is flatly untrue. The substance of this claim involves two separate bills and they in no way relate to one another. Senator Flake is not willing to make any concessions on the Manchin/Toomey amendment. He voted against it and voted instead for the Grassley/Cruz amendment. He wrote a short Facebook post about it last night:

It was reported by some media outlets today that I am changing my vote on Manchin/Toomey and that somehow I'm linking this to a vote on the vote on the Internet sales tax. Neither is true. I am not changing my vote on Manchin/Toomey. I voted against it. I voted against the Internet sales tax as well. There is no connection between these two votes.

“We just reported other reports,” Stu said in regards to the story Glenn reported yesterday.

Sen. Flake came on the radio program a couple weeks ago to talk about the Gang of Eight immigration reform, and Glenn asked him some pretty tough questions and demanded some pretty substantive answers, but Sen. Flake handled it with grace. Today, Glenn offered Sen. Flake an open invitation to come on the radio program and talk about the gun-control issue.

“Here's the thing,” Glenn said. “If we're not tough on these guys when they possibly start to lose their place, when they start to, you know, go towards Lindsey Graham and John McCain, we lose them and then they're there forever and we have to help them keep their souls, quite honestly. And so we'll lovingly reach out to him and lovingly ask him some questions because we don't want to lose him. Because he is a great, great advocate. He has a great history, and we'd like to see that continue.

“We'd like to help those who are good,” Glenn concluded. “We just want to make sure that we're not supporting anybody who has gone astray.”

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
