TX gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott talks about suing the Obama Administration and his campaign against Wendy Davis

Glenn has been highlighting several Texas politicians over the last few weeks because he believes that the future of the nation lies in the success or failure of Texas. On radio this morning, Texas Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott joined Glenn to discuss his campaign against lionized State Representative Wendy Davis (D-Ft. Worth) and what he is doing as attorney general to combat the Obama Administration.

Davis came under fire last month for a foot-in-mouth comment she made about Abbott not having the authority to criticize her because he has not walked a mile in her shoes. Abbott is paraplegic.

“Are you the kind of guy that has fun with that, takes offense of that, or what,” Glenn asked Abbott.

“I typically start out almost every speech I give making some kind of joke about me being in a wheelchair. My slogan in this campaign is: Texas needs to roll with Greg towards victory… I was a young man, 26-years-old, when I was out jogging and a big tree fell on me – crashed down onto my back, crushing my vertebrae, and that's what's left me in a wheelchair. But typically, when I tell stories like that, people are shaking their heads, wondering how slow was I jogging to get hit by a falling tree,” Abbott joked. “The point, Glenn, is that you have spoken to countless politicians who say that, you know, if they are elected, they will go into office and when they have to make the tough discussions, they will have a spine of steel. I really do have a steel spine that I use to fight for Texans every single day.”

As attorney general, Abbott has sued the Obama Administration a whopping 33 times in the last five years. So far, the state of Texas has won 10 of those lawsuits and lost five. The remaining cases are still held up in the courts. On the other hand, Abbott said Texas filed about three lawsuits against both the Bush and Clinton administrations.

“Some are mixed, like in the ObamaCare case, we won an our state's based issue, saying the Obama Administration and Congress violated the Constitution by forcing Texas to expand its Medicaid system, contrary to what we may want to do. However, the case was a loss because Chief Justice Roberts re-characterized Obamacare as the Obama tax,” Abbott said. “But here's the point you were trying to draw… during my studied life, I have never seen a president so cavalierly contradict and refuse to apply the Constitution and the laws of this country like we have the Obama Administration. I wish I didn't have to sue the President a single time, because I wish we had a president who would follow and obey the law, but we don't.”

While Davis is Abbott’s actual opponent in this year’s gubernatorial race, Abbott believes his real opponent is the sense of complacency that too many Texas voters have.

“I announced I was running for governor for Texas back in July. Month after month, I have been involved in a pitch battle against a very profound opponent. My opponent's name was complacency. A lot of Texans did not realize there really was this battle because they thought: Texas is a conservative state. We will always be a conservative state,” Abbott explained. “They were asleep about the fact the Obama Administration itself is working with the Democratic candidate for governor. Barak Obama's national field director, Jeremy Bird, is here in the state of Texas organizing neighborhoods and precincts to turn up like they did in Colorado and Ohio. Barak Obama's finance director is helping to raise money… Barak Obama's campaign team is helping energize the campaign.”

“This is the Barak Obama administration that is basically relocated to the state of Texas, to make Texas more like his liberal dream version of what the United States should be,” he continued. “This is extremely dangerous. There will be millions of dollars spent in this race – a lot of it raised from states outside of Texas that want Texas to become more like California.”

Abbott faces a long, drawn out fight against Davis and the Obama campaign machine, and Glenn encouraged listeners to continue learning more about Abbott’s campaign and consider donating.

“This is a fight for the whole country because millions are pouring in from the left," Glenn said. "And if Greg sound like somebody you can support, if you would like to help support Texas remaining free… If we lose Texas, we lose the country.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
