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.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

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:
