“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.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
