Get off the Rubio bandwagon

During a Spanish-speaking interview last week with Univision, Marco Rubio made the following statement: "Let's be clear. Nobody is talking about preventing legalizations. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then comes the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence."

Whether or not the Republican Senator from Florida knew his comment would receive the amount of attention that it did, conservatives weren't happy. And with good reason — it's the exact opposite of what he's been touting to the right since the immigration reform debate began. How many times was border security used as the prerequisite for amnesty? Countless.

Among the conservatives that are far less than pleased with Marco Rubio is Mr. Glenn Beck.

"Let me tell you something, Marco Rubio, I haven't trusted you for quite some time.  Everybody's been on this 'Marco Rubio Bandwagon'. Why?" Glenn asked

Stu pointed out that even they jumped on the bandwagon at one point. Pat compared it to the Chris Christie phase that is now also long gone.

"As with Chris Christie and everybody else we had high hopes in, we wanted him to be the guy we thought he was," Pat said.

"He's not," Glenn added.

Well, yesterday, the U.S. Senate voted 82-15 on a motion to begin a formal debate on the so-called 'Gang of Eight' immigration bill that would affect 11 million unauthorized immigrants and U.S. employers.

"This is the motion to proceed they voted on yesterdays right in the senate," Stu noted. "And fancy names like such as Rand Paul who voted yes on that, along with Marco Rubio, along with Lindsey Graham and all the names that you would expect."

While Pat suggested trying to save him, Glenn's mind was already made up.

"He's a dirtbag," Glenn passionately stated.

Pat was hesitant to go that far, but Glenn continued to draw a clear line in the sand.

"Rubio is not on our side," he emphasized. "He is not on our side."

It is worth nothing, however, Rubio didn't exactly vote outside party lines. In fact, he voted the same way as one of Glenn's favorite members of Congress, Rand Paul.

"I can't defend Rand on that," Glenn admitted. "I don't know, but I will tell you this, you don't trust Marco Rubio. I don't trust him, not for a second. I just don't trust him. And you know what? I'm sorry. You don't give a speech in Spanish and tell everybody one thing and then say — I mean, what is this?"

Glenn compared the way Rubio's messaging changed when addressing Univisions hispanic audience to the tactics of Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah groups.

"They say one thing in Arabic and then another thing in English," he said.

Glenn continued, "listen to me.  It is worse than universal health care.  And not coming days as we get closer, we will explain why it's worse than universal health care.  It is the death nail of the country.  There's

no recovery from this one.  None.  No recovery.  Because they are playing all kinds of legalistic games with this one, and they are saying oh, no.  Well — no.  There's no benefits and there's no this, no that.  No, they are not going — what?  They are not going to be able to grab onto that program.  Oh, yeah.  Oh, yes, they will.  Yes, they will.  This one is worse than universal health care and it happens overnight.  No recovery from this one.  And John Boehner, Marco Rubio, they're all in on it, and for those who want to save the nation, you got to stop this one.  And this one is going to be rammed through. Some of these — I think Marco Rubio and maybe Rand Paul as well, they are playing for 2014 or 2016.  There is no 2016. There is no 2016 where you are running for anything, if these things pass."

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
