Sean Hannity talks to Glenn about who he likes in 2016 and his ‘conservative solutions’

Sean Hannity joined Glenn on radio this morning for a wide-ranging interview on the state of politics and political discourse in America today. From who he likes in 2016 to the common sense ‘conservative solutions’ he has laid out, Glenn and Sean found they are “on the same page” on some of the most important issues.

It is no secret Glenn is a big fan of Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Sean is as well. When it comes to 2016, however, strategy will play a key role, and the senators could not be more different.

“So let me talk to you about Rand Paul and Ted Cruz because everybody says to me, ‘Which one do you like?’ And my response is ‘Both,’” Glenn said. “But they have different strategies… Which one do you think has the better strategy? The one that's going kind of the traditional way that might pull some more middle ground, or the guy who's just saying this is wrong and I'm standing against it?”

“It's too early to tell. I'm not convinced Cruz is in yet. I am convinced that Rand is in,” Sean said. “Ted Cruz… [is] the one that kept his promise and he's the bad guy. So I admire him just for the fact that he's standing on his principles. You know, he's got a problem because I think they are trying to do to him what they did to Governor Palin, what they've done to you and Rush and talk radio in general. I think they want to smear, slander, besmirch, attack, demonize.”

If the choice was between Sens. Paul and Cruz, Sean was more willing to commit:

GLENN: The candidate: It would be between Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

SEAN: Ted Cruz.

GLENN: And I don't know.

SEAN: We're on the same page.

GLENN: Yeah, it's one of those two.

SEAN: Yeah.

Ultimately, Sean is interested in getting a conservative-minded person into office who will stand for smaller government and personal responsibility.

“The American people have to decide this: Are they willing to accept an America where 15 million Americans are on food stamps, the labor participation rate's the lowest since 1978, one in five American children are in poverty, one in six adults are in poverty? Are they willing to accept more of that, or are they now open to the idea that we've gone in the wrong direction and America needs conservative solutions to change,” Sean asked. “I've often heard you say on your show it's not about left or right; it's about right and wrong. I would argue that conservative principles are the right ones that will work, if applied.”

On his radio program, Sean is working on finding and implementing the common sense solutions that will help get this country back on track. His Conservative Solutions Caucus 2014 lays out a pretty straightforward plan.

The crux of Sean’s plan involves cutting one penny of every dollar the government spends for six years (at which point you actually balance the budget) and focusing on energy independence.

“If you did, Glenn, those two things: If we tapped into our energy resources and we cut one penny out of every dollar, we'd save Social Security, we'd pay down the deficit, we'd stop robbing from our kids,” Sean said. “You hear these stories about these Sheiks that get on these Boeings 767s and they fly to the United States and they buy up every store and they take all the crap back because they can't buy it in their countries. Every American would be that wealthy. There would be no need for any social safety net except for those that are truly needy, and we'd have more money to take better care of them.”

So why aren't we doing it?

“Because the Republican Party is uninspiring. They are timid and afraid of their own shadow,” he concluded. “And like the Democrats, they seem most concerned about one thing and one thing only and that's their own political power.”

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
