Rep. Louie Gohmert talks to Glenn about the gov’t shutdown and a possible Senate run

Glenn has been quite vocal about his hope that Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) will try to unseat Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) in the 2014 mid-term elections. And this morning on radio, Rep. Gohmert joined Glenn to talk about the partial government shutdown and his future plans.

“Let me say hello – let me try this out – to the Senator from Texas Louie Gohmert,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “You asked me if I prayed on it, and the answer is yes. So now I’m going to call you the Senator from Texas. Louie Gohmert. And I accept your acceptance… that you are probably too shy to give.”

Rep. Gohmert was among the Republican congressmen who went to the National Mall yesterday to escort a group of World War II veterans to the WWII memorial that was “closed” because of the partial government shutdown. He was at the Mall again this morning, when he called into the radio program.

“It means more than I think you would ever know that you would have that kind of faith in me,” Rep. Gohmert said. “ But wow, we've got Amazing Grace being sung here at the World War II memorial, and I am with a hundred or so veterans.”

Rep. Gohmert was back at the Mall today because the memorials were once again closed. He was there with his fellow congressmen to ensure the visiting veterans had the opportunity to pay tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters.

“They did close it back again today. They had the barricades, yellow tape across. And anyway, magically when all of the veterans showed up, there was not a Park Service person there to prevent anybody from moving the barricades like they did yesterday,” Rep. Gohmert explained. “All you can figure is that somebody intentionally did this to make it difficult for World War II veterans. Just to create pain. Just for political gain. And some reporter stuck a mic in my face and said, ‘Sen. Claire McCaskill says you are only doing this for politics.’ I went, ‘Are you kidding?’ This is for our veterans. Come on, if you want to get politics into this thing, that's what closing this did.”

Glenn asked Rep. Gohmert if he had heard about the story involving House Speaker John Boehner and his backdoor schemes to ensure Congress was exempt from Obamacare. Though he had not yet heard the story, Rep. Gohmert made his position on the issue quite clear.

“Oh man. Well, I haven't heard that. But I've already said, regardless, the American people don't get subsidies. I'm not accepting anything,” he said emphatically. “I'll pay my penalties, which come under Obamacare. I'm not doing that. It's not right.”

As the 2014 mid-term elections approach, Glenn had a message for the Texas Representative:

“Congressman Gohmert, I will tell you that as you were talking just a few minutes ago, I got an answer to my prayer. And I just want you to know that I don't think you should worry about money. We live in a time of miracles. If you would just continue to pray for your answer, if that's the right thing for you to do. Don't pray about the money. Pray about is this the right thing,” Glenn said in regards to a Senate run. “You are the guy. And it's high time that we send a message to the Republicans that claim to be on the side of the Constitution and the Republic, and shut them down. Start to do the right thing, no matter who tells us that it can't happen or we won't win. As long as we're on God's side, who could stand against us?”

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
