Glenn's powerful message to Republican representatives

If you listened to yesterday's radio program, you are aware that Glenn is supporting Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) in his challenge against House Speaker John Boehner for the top spot in Congress.

Despite Glenn's strong feelings for Gohmert's ability to be successful in this role, the mainstream media has failed to agree with Glenn. At the beginning of his radio show, Glenn quoted a new Gallup poll that 60 percent of Republican GOP voters would like Boehner to leave his position. Glenn then decided to send a message to those House Representatives who would be participating in the vote today, saying "If you're putting your money behind John Boehner, you're backing the wrong horse. I don't mean politically speaking. I mean for the sake of the country. What are you there for? For politics or for the state of the country?"

Glenn took the time to say that he does, indeed, relate to the difficult decisions and pressure one in leadership faces on a daily basis. Glenn even listed some of the issues he has faced as a business owner dealing with financial pressures. Despite the pressure though, the key is to not compromise. For Glenn, the realization that he had compromised too much came from his children. Glenn said, "All my kids had to say to me was, 'Oh'. That was it. But it was a condemning, 'Oh'. It was an, 'Oh. You've turned into one of them.' They never said that. They didn't have to. I knew it."

Just as Glenn realized he had strayed from his goals based on his children's judgement of him, those in political power, or in any leadership role, need to take a step back and re-evaulate who they are and what they believe. In a desperate plea to those in Washington, D.C. Glenn left them with some powerful words to consider:

It's time to step back and say, okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Who am I really? What is it I really believe in?

See, what happens is, these guys go into Washington and they believe in something. Then they get there and they listen to these consultants. I'm telling you right now, defund the G.O.P. You know what the problem is? The damn consultants that the G.O.P. hires. They're the same people over and over and over and over again. And what happens is, the fresh blood goes in, and they don't know what the hell they're doing. They go in and sit around to all these experts that they've seen on TV forever. They say, listen, kid, you don't understand how this works. I do, I've been here for 25 years.

You need to have the spine in Washington to say, you know what you've been here for 25 years. What have you done for us?

Listen to the rest of Glenn's powerful monologue below:

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: You know, this is why -- you know what -- this is why we don't like talking politics. We've talked about these guys. We believe in these guys. Chris Stewart. I believe in him. Where is he? Jason Chaffetz. Where are you, dude? You're telling me that John Boehner is the future?

If you're putting your money behind John Boehner, you're backing the wrong horse. I don't mean politically speaking. I mean for the sake of the country. What are you there for? For politics or for the state of the country?

Let me tell you something: Let me give a message right directly to those Republicans who are waffling today. Those Republicans who have listened to the pressure.

I run a business. I know pressure. And I'm going to be real honest with you. Have you been to TheBlaze.com lately? TheBlaze.com in the last year has more garbage ads on it than I've ever seen. And I can't take them anymore. The pop-ups and the pop-behinds and everything else. I can't take them. We get complaints. We should get complaints. You should be pissed at those.

Now, here's what happened: Financial pressures start to come in. You start to say, well, we have to take this. Before, you know, you've comprised yourself into a position to where you look like crap. You become everything that you despise. So now you have to go and reset.

So here's the decision I had to make over the summer. I start to get well. I start looking at my company and everything we're doing. And I say, why are we doing this? Why is this happening. This goes against our principles. Why would we do these things? Well, because if we don't do that, then we'll have to do this. Then that will cause this. And that will cause this to happen. Before we know it, we'll be all out of control.

And, quite honestly, when I was not healthy, I was accepting that excuse. You know what changed me? And hear me clearly, Republicans. Because you don't have to be in my business. This is just my way of relating to it. I don't know what your way of relating it is, I bet you there's businesspeople and politicians and moms who find themselves in exactly the same situation, just different circumstance.

Here's what changed it: My children.

Well, dad, how come you're allowing that to happen?

Well, because if I don't do that, then this will happen and this will happen.

All my kids had to say to me was, oh. That was it. But it was a condemning, oh. It was an, oh. You've turned into one of them.

They never said that. They didn't have to. I knew it.

You listen to me, Republicans, you either stand for something or you don't. And just like my situation with all these damn pop-up ads, it will take me a while to clear them all out. It will take me a while because I've made mistakes. Company has made mistakes. It will take a while to clear all this crap out.

Okay. So I take the next eight months, six months, whatever it is, clearing this crap out to reset it to get it right. Or I could just say, well, it will be too much problem. It will solve itself in some way magically, no, it won't. Are you going to be one of those people that are looking at the problems and say, well, I have to work within the system and I have to do -- the system is broken. The system is broken.

And whether that system is in your house, in your business or in Washington, DC, we all know it's broken.

So you're not going to be able to repair this anymore. There's too many patches on this tire. It's time for a new course. It's time to step back and say, okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Who am I really? What is it I really believe in?

See, what happens is, these guys go into Washington and they believe in something. Then they get there and they listen to these consultants. I'm telling you right now, defund the G.O.P. You know what the problem is? The damn consultants that the G.O.P. hires. They're the same people over and over and over and over again. And what happens is, the fresh blood goes in, and they don't know what the hell they're doing. They go in and sit around to all these experts that they've seen on TV forever. They say, listen, kid, you don't understand how this works. I do, I've been here for 25 years.

You need to have the spine in Washington to say, you know what you've been here for 25 years. What have you done for us?

Well, we've had a win -- when? Tell me the win for the Constitution. I can tell you the losses for the Constitution. I can tell you we're enslaving our children with this debt. I can tell you right now that there are Americans all across the country that can't afford health insurance anymore.

So don't tell me you've been here for 25 years. You tell me you've been here for 25 minutes. I'm starting to think that you're part of the problem.

I'm begging the people in Washington to hear me clearly.

You think about your children. And if you can explain your vote to your children and say, look, I know that John Boehner is a bad guy. I know he's standing against all the things we're for. I know he's spending us into oblivion. I know that he's not securing the border. I know that he's going against what I said I would do on Obamacare.

But, kids, you see, I have to do this. Because this is the way adults play these games. This is the way the system works.

If you can honestly look at your children and say that, and they don't look at you and say, oh, then you go ahead and vote.

But when your kids look at you, you understand that what you're teaching them is: Kids, sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing. Sometimes it's really right to sell out our principles and to sell out what I said I would do because I have to play the game.

Don't play the game. Don't play the game.

Do the right thing. Where is your faith? Where is your faith in the American people? The American people can handle it. They're big enough. We know it's coming. We don't know how bad it is. But believe me, if this is your first day in Congress, you will soon -- every single congressman I've ever met, every single politician I've ever met, they get into Congress and they tell me six months into it, man, I had no idea it was this bad.

Really? You were that naive? No, Glenn. Even you don't know how bad it is. Have you listened to my program? If it's worse than I say it is, then you have a responsibility to get on the air and say that.

Well, we can't. I mean, the American people might panic.

No, they won't. Have faith in the American people. Have faith in yourself. Have faith in the system. Have faith in the Constitution. Have faith in our founders. Be that standard-bearer.

George Washington said at the Constitutional Convention: George, what do we do? Do we comprise here?

Let us raise a standard that the wise and the honest can repair.

Well, it's time for the wise and honest to repair it. We know it won't be easy. I won't play the game.

I'm begging those in Washington: Stop playing the game. You know what the right thing to do is. Stop listening to the experts. The experts are the ones who got us here.

How many times would you use Google Maps if every time it took you to the wrong destination? How many times would you keep using Google Maps?

Oh, crap. It keeps taking me to the wrong house. Oh, crap, it keeps taking me to the wrong house. Yes, but we're the experts. You're taking me to the wrong house.

Stop using the experts. They're wrong.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
