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.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
