Could Glenn convince Ann Coulter to recant her support of Sen. Mitch McConnell?

When Ann Coulter joined Glenn on Monday’s radio program, she issued a pretty strong defense of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his actions as of late. While Ann has serious problems with the likes of Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), she defended Sen. McConnell because of the position he occupies. Because Sen. McConnell is in a leadership position, Ann explained that his job is not to defend people like Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) but rather keep his members unified.

Needless to say, Glenn did not buy Ann’s reasoning. And following the passage of a debt ceiling compromise that includes a $2 billion Kentucky kickback for a dam project, Glenn asked Ann to call into this morning’s radio program to see if she had changed her opinion.

“The name of the book is Never Trust a Liberal Over 3, Especially a Republican. Ann Coulter is on with us. She was on a couple of days ago and she was standing up for the gallant Mitch McConnell,” Glenn said. “Ann, a $2 billion dam that a liberal senator from California – you know how much they love dams in California and making sure they dam up the environment. [Sen. Dianne Feinstein] is the one that put in the bill that he wrote and that's what we get out of this? Really? Are you still in love with Mitch McConnell?”

“Oh, I knew you were going to fall for this all new conspiracy theory,” Ann quipped. “Number one, he did not write it. Number two, if this dam bursts, you have basically another Katrina. This has been on the budget bill. This is not Mitch McConnell… This is not the building of a new dam like filling a hole. This is a dam that exists. People down river from it actually have radios because if that dam bursts, the entire town would be flooded. No United States member of Congress is going to want to be responsible for the next Katrina, and they will be if this is part of it.”

Ann's tried to make the point that until Republicans take over the Senate, little can be accomplished, which is why Sen. McConnell finds himself in the situation he currently does. In her mind, winning elections is the most important thing.

"I think we should reflect on whether it was a good idea or a bad idea for you conspiracy theorists to be pushing Christine O'Donnell in Delaware, Richard Mourdock in Indiana," Ann said.

"Wait a minute. What does she have to do with it," Glenn asked exasperatedly. "Ann Coulter, you're not coming on this program and calling me a conspiracy theorist, are you? Really?"

"Oh, no. Just people like you, but not you, Glenn," Ann responded. “I still maintain Republicans were fantastic. I think it's great what happened over the last three weeks. I think it branded Republicans as the anti-Obamacare party. We're not just letting the left consolidate their game,” Ann explained. “The Democrats look awful. Do not believe the polls of ‘all adults.’ Those are irrelevant. This, I think, should be energizing Republicans. But how long do you want them to hit their heads against the wall? We can't get anything done unless we have a majority in the Senate. So stop blowing Senate races for Republicans. That's a big lesson from this.”

Watch the entire interview below:

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
