Glenn: The immigration bill threatens America’s principles

Glenn has been very vocal about his opposition to the ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration bill in the Senate and the Trojan horse bill in the House. On Wednesday, he will be traveling to Washington D.C. to speak at the open forum that will feature “border security, anti-amnesty members of Congress.”

The debate is slated for 9AM to 12PM and then again from 2PM to 5PM. In between, members of Congress will join with an already-planned Tea Party rally against the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative organizations. Glenn will be joining the event and speaking at noon.

“We have to be better than we think we can be, and on Wednesday we're going to Washington D.C., and I'll invite you to come. This is not my rally or press conference. I was asked to speak,” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “And at first I was hesitant to do it because I don't like going to Washington, and I've got so many irons in the fire and we are all so darn busy. I got to Friday and I thought, I don't think I can not be there… I believe this is the final fundamental transformation of this country.”

It is easy to point to the estimated cost of the immigration bill - $11 trillion – and express displeasure. It is easy to say that you are opposed to amnesty without border security. But there is a larger issue at play that has been talked about very little but undoubtedly has the largest implications.

“You know, in the longer term, there's no way the country survives, and it fundamentally changes our elections. It changes everything,” Glenn said. “Because these are not people who are coming in here who want to be Americans… Nobody’s talking about teaching them the principles of being an American.”

To illustrate the problem with the current state of immigration, Glenn gave of the example of Mercury Radio Arts’ chief of staff, Joe Kerry, and his family, who came to the United States to escape North Korea.

“They loved the American principles that they were escaping to,” Pat said of Joe’s family.

“Joe doesn't speak Korean. He can understand it, but he doesn't speak it. His parents would not teach him Korean because they said, ‘You are going to learn to speak English because you're going to be an American and you're going to make something of yourself,’” Glenn explained. “We don't have that culture anymore. Nobody is holding up our culture. So our culture does not take a hit this big.”

“But it's interesting because you look at the other side of that,” Stu interjected. “You have people who escape a country and come here for the principles. The other side of that – we're talking about people whose first act in this land is a crime. Crossing the border is a crime. It's the first thing they're doing here. And then we're not going to expect them to try to melt into society.”

To some degree, Glenn sympathized with the plight of the person or family who illegally entered the United States because they realized the system in their country simply did not work and they desired something more. “I'm just saying that there are those I'm sure that just needed to get out because they couldn't wait around any longer,” Glenn said.

“And to be fair to illegal immigrants, we treat it like it's a speeding ticket,” Stu continued. “I speed, some have said I would speed at times, and I do that with the acceptance of, okay, there's a punishment, it's a slap on the wrist and I accept that punishment as a risk… We treat [illegal immigration] like that. So why wouldn't they try?”

While there is no defense for those who willfully and knowingly break the law, Glenn argued that until the United States government respects the laws that are on the books, we cannot expect anyone else to.

“We don't respect our own law,” Glenn said. “We haven't placed a value on citizenship. We haven't placed a value on being here in a very long time… We're a bad parent, quite honestly.”

“The major immigration development of the past, what, five years is the president saying the laws no longer count; I'm not going to pay attention to them anymore, when it comes to certain immigrants,” Stu said. “The big development is this president ignoring our laws. So why would illegal immigrants believe that there was anything wrong with coming in here?”

“Well,” Pat said frankly, “they apparently don't.”

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:
