Ann Coulter disagrees with Glenn on creating a third party: "This is how nations die, Glenn Beck!"

On radio this morning, Glenn was joined in-studio by conservative author Ann Coulter to discuss her new book, Never Trust a Liberal Over 3, Especially a Republican, and the current state of Washington D.C. politics. From creating a third party to defunding the GOP, defeating Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to raising the debt ceiling, Glenn and Ann had a lively hour-long debate about the future of the Republican Party.

“Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 – and my favorite part of the title – especially a Republican, that is the name of the new book by Ann Coulter, who is in our New York studios and it is always good to see you, Ann, always,” Glenn said. “Okay. This is the first book that Ann has done that has zero, count them, zero mainstream media interviews. Somehow or another Ann has found herself on the blacklist, where they are all fascists. They gang up and say that opinion is no longer valid and they'll just block you out.”

“Right. And particularly, I mean, I was thinking about it last night. But this includes – not that I'm somebody now, but in terms of the media world and the publishing world, an absolute nobody. My first book came out of nowhere, High Crimes and Misdemeanors. I had lots of mainstream media interviews then,” Ann explained. “But I was thinking about other smart conservatives… but I don't see you a lot on mainstream media interviews. Whatever happened to Michael Fumento? No, he's very smart. He's very articulate. Don't put him on. Let's find Alex Jones. And I don't want to mention them, but some of our less articulate Republicans in the House and Senate. Oh, well, one I will mention: Why is John McCain like the standard bearer for the Republican Party?”

As of late, Glenn has been quite insistent that it is time to take a stand against the Republican establishment like Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ), and Mitch McConnell by defunding the GOP. He has even suggested the possibility of a third party movement – a suggestion Ann vehemently disagreed with. While she shares Glenn frustrations with the more progressive element of the party, she believes that victory must remain the common goal of all Republicans.

“So I'm afraid to even ask this question,” Glenn said. “But there's no shot that you are for a third party?”

“Ahhhh! This is how nations die, Glenn Beck,” Ann said. “We're going to lose. All that matters is winning, winning, winning.”

While Glenn pointed to Charles Sumner and the demise of the Whig Party as examples of successful third party movements, Ann was not convinced the situation is dire enough for such drastic measures.

“No, no, no, it's not that bad. We have Ted Cruz and we have Mike Lee. We need more of them,” Ann said. “And I would adhere, my friend, Pat Caddell was the main proponent of a third party and I have accused him of still pushing, you know, his democratic policies. He did get that menace Jimmy Carter elected. This is his sneaky way of undermining the Republican Party. ‘Yeah, why don't you guys run a third party?’ No, I want a third party taking votes from the Democrats. That's what you should be working on.”

When it comes to the debt ceiling debate currently raging in D.C., Ann and Glenn both agreed that raising the debt ceiling does not necessarily mean the Republicans have lost.

“We don't give up fighting against Obamacare and the government shutdown by raising the debt ceiling,” Ann said. “But I think it's worth saying we could raise the debt ceiling because, again, we only have one half of one branch of government. But that doesn't end the fight over Obamacare. That still doesn't give us a budget. We're right back where we were on the government shutdown.”

“I'm totally fine if you want to raise the debt ceiling,” Glenn agreed.

While Glenn and Ann disagreed about how much the Republicans actually gain from the grand bargain currently being worked out between Sen. McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (R-NV), Ann re-iterated that any type of delay to the debt ceiling, is a victory for Republicans.

“Well, we got it put off for a couple of months. [That’s] time to organize. And I would also add [Sen. McConnell] may be counting on the House rejecting it, but this shows the reasonableness of Republicans,” Ann said. “I think it was brilliant that the Republicans in the House – thank you, Ted Cruz, for leading them, by the way – began with defund the entire government except for defunding Obamacare. And then they step back: Now we will defund the entire government including Obamacare that we want to put off for a year. And now their final offer, and the reason the government is shut down, is fund the entire government, including Obamacare but Congress has to live under it.”

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
