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 They gang up and say that opinion is no longer valid and they'll just block you out.”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.”

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
