Why is Glenn saying he might not vote in the 2016 election?

New Jersey governor Chris Christie enjoyed a landslide victory over his Democratic challenger, Barbara Buono, is last week’s gubernatorial election, and he has since embarked on a media blitz that feels a lot like a setup for a 2016 presidential run. On Sunday, Christie sat down with Fox News’ Chris Wallace for a “lightning round” of questions that sought to gage his position on a series of political issues Wallace said are important to conservatives.

From immigration reform to gun control, Christie offered his opinions on a wide range of issues. And upon hearing his answers, Glenn made a strong promise: “I will not vote for another Republican like Chris Christie or Mitt Romney [in 2016].”

While Christie was quick to promise that all his efforts are focused on New Jersey, Wallace pointed out that if he were to run for President, Christie would first have to get through the Republican primary, “and the knock against you, which you know is from some parts of the party, is that you are not conservative enough.”

WALLACE: First of all do you still favor comprehensive immigration reform, including a path to citizenship?

CHRISTIE: Well Chris, what I favor is fixing the broken system --

“Well, that's what I'm for too. That's why they say it. Progressives treat you like a moron. They want you to hear the sound bite and they believe that's all Americans hear, and maybe they're right, you won't go any further beyond,” Glenn said. “[But] you cannot deal with the complex issues of our lifetime in sound bites. Hey, 2030, the singularity, there will be no death. I'm for, you know, no death. Click. Hold it just a second. What was the singularity thing? You cannot deal with the complex issues of our age in sound bites. But progressives want to treat you like a moron because they believe you're a moron.”

When it comes to gun control, Christie offered another sound bite-worthy answer.

WALLACE: You also support some gun controls. Why?

CHRISTIE: Well Chris, listen. When you look at what we've done in New Jersey, we want to control violence and some of that may involve firearms but a lot of it doesn't. In fact, my focus has been on making sure that mental health is done in a much more aggressive way in New Jersey. Every time we see one of these incidents happen across our country, it is almost exclusively with a deeply disturbed person at the helm and what we need to do is be much more aggressive about how we deal with mental health issues in this country, so I'm for violence control.

“I'm for violence control?! The Republicans think they are going to run him. I don't think the Republicans will run him. He has too many skeletons in the closet. I think he has too many skeletons in the closet,” Glenn said. “I have to tell you, I mean, again everybody's looking at this all wrong. Things have already changed but not enough people have caught up to it yet. By 2016 the whole world is different… You cannot put the genie back in the bottle. It's out. It's over. So now you can either stand on principles and a big vision that actually revolves around the Constitution. Or you will lose.”

“Never before in my life have I said this. I just voted at a stupid local election. I mean, jeez, for the love of Pete, I vote,” he continued. “I will not vote for another Republican like Chris Christie or Mitt Romney. I will not vote. I will skip it. I will not cast my vote for that.”

Stu promised to hold Glenn’s feet to the fire in 2016, should a Chris Christie or Mitt Romney type receive the Republican nomination. “I'm pulling the calendar out right now,” Stu said. “And I'm going to put a 2016 date on the reminder.”

“You know what? I want you to chastise me. I want you to play this,” Glenn demanded. “Let me talk to future Glenn. Let me look right into the camera.”

What was his message to his future self?

Glenn, don't do it. Don't do it. They have fooled you again. They have played all those games again. And if you're thinking right now, “Well, but the other person..." It doesn't matter! Stop selling your values out! Stop it right now.

“You play that for me, if I change my mind in 2015,” Glenn said. “I urge everyone in this audience – you remind [me]. If I start going down that road, you remind [me] and you chastise me. Don't do it.”

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries
