Standing up to the Republican and Democratic parties

When will Republicans and Democrats stand up for themselves and their principles? When will they stop blindly serving a party where the establishment holds onto power with the grip of a rabid dog? Tired of the typical games, Glenn challenged Americans to stand up to the party hacks on both sides of the aisle.

Earlier this week, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: “Let me reiterate what our position is, and it is unequivocal. We will not negotiate with Republicans in Congress over Congress’ responsibility to pay the bills that Congress has racked up, period…We have never defaulted, and we must never default. That is our position, 100 percent, full stop.”

“He blames all of the spending on Congress. And he's right. Congress is the only one that can write these checks. Congress is the purse. And so he's blaming Congress and the Republicans,” Glenn said.

Glenn said he is waiting for members of Congress to stand up and say they’ve had enough. For all the talk from Republicans saying they will listen to their constituents and attempt to defund Obamacare, only a few of them are really taking action.

On the other hand, President Obama, the most powerful Democrat in the country, is preparing for war in Syria which will only entangle America in foreign affairs with no clear path to victory or objectives, a scenario not too different from what the liberals attacked George Bush for doing in Iraq.

“When are the Republicans, when are the democrats going to stand up? And I would love to see them stand up together and say we just want some common sense. We just want people to say what they mean and mean what they say,” Glenn said. “If somebody has the guts to actually do that and if you could put together three Republicans and two democrats, you'd have a movement.”

Glenn said he has spoken privately with at least one Senator who agrees that the establishment will soon have to face the fact they have lost the faith and trust of the American people, and with it their grip on power. But that same Senator said that the American people also don’t realize how hard the establishment will fight to stay in power.

“We have to be humble and decent and join with one another. We have to go out of our way. I would ask you to be a missionary, if you're a -- a Republican or a Democrat -- be a missionary and go out and don't try to convert anybody's thinking onto your way. Go out and say can we stand together? Because I know you know this isn't right. I know you know. And I'm not asking you to join me in what I think is right. I'm asking you to stand next to me while I take my party apart. You take your party apart. And let's be people again. Let's be neighbors again. Let's be Americans again. We don't have to agree, but we both do agree that there's no common sense in Washington, D.C., and it's got to stop.”

CNN learns the HARD way not to mess with GOP candidate Kari Lake

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

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.
