Glenn confronts GOP congressman: 'You're losing your soul'

Scroll down for video

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) showed some cojones this morning by appearing on the radio to explain his vote for John Boehner for Speaker of the House. Glenn spent the past twenty-four hours asking his audience to call their congressman and tell them if they vote for Boehner, they will not be getting their votes again when they seek re-election. Knowing he would be entering a combative arena, Chris still agreed to come on the radio show. He may have the guts to come on the show, but he may have lost his soul.

For anyone who doesn't know, Chris Stewart and Glenn have been friends for a while. Glenn interviewed him several times during his campaign in 2012, and even published his book series 'Wrath & Righteousness'. Needless to say, a vote for Boehner would seem to be a betrayal of everything Glenn believed his friend stood for.

"You have some nerve calling, and I appreciate that. We were just saying off the air that we promised you as your friend that we would come to Washington to pull you out of Washington before you lost your soul entirely. I'm not kidding, Chris. We were talking about -- we're gassing up the car. We're talking about firing up the jet and flying over there to pull you out of that cesspool because we're afraid you're losing your way," Glenn told him.

"I'm glad I would make your list of people you would want to save," said Chris.

Glenn proceeded to go into a long list of Boehner's affronts to any true conservative.

Chris countered, "I think in the time we have here, we can’t go back and review the last two, or four, or six years of votes you may or may not agree with him on. But the bottom line is this: I think we should be celebrating today, and it’s discouraging to me that instead this has become such a divisive day. We had a great election in November. We have a united Congress and a united Senate now. For the first time we have a united front where we can oppose President Obama."

"Yeah, you're right. We have a united Congress, and they're giving the green light to the President on amnesty. They're giving the green light on the CROmnibus. That's a trillion dollars, Chris. A trillion dollars," Glenn shot back.

Chris disagreed, claiming that Boehner and the rest of the GOP were waiting to fight things like an amnesty plan when there would be a Republican Senate to support them.

Glenn tried to appeal to his friend. "Chris, you find me in a brothel. And I'm friends with all the prostitutes. And I'm friends with the madam. And I start telling youthat this brothel is helping with the city improvements. Chris, 'I'm not sleeping with the prostitutes.' I'm here setting up office in the brothel. Do you have a problem with me, Chris?"

"Well, it depends, Glenn. You know, how attractive are the young ladies in the brothel. Right?"

Wow.

"You told, us, Chris, to come down on you like a bag of bricks if we ever felt you were losing your soul. This is bag of bricks time. We think you’re losing your soul.”

"Friends can say those kinds of things to each other. We get that," Chris said. "You and I have been friends for many more years than I've been in politics. I'm a new guy, Glenn. I've been in this for a couple of years now. Right? But I do think that there are times in which you and I agree that you've indicated that I haven't agreed with you. I think you've indicated that I've said or implied things that I certainly haven't. And I never have. And I think you and I agree on far more things than we disagree. And you're using this type of vote as some kind of a touchstone, as if it indicates disagreement on everything else, when we don't."

"It's the game, Chris. You're playing the game. Stop playing the game," he said.

The interview came to an end shortly after that, and the two parted as friends. Glenn, however, is still very worried about his friend.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
