You might be surprised by who has been targeting Tea Party Senator Mike Lee

Glenn was in a bit of a mood this morning, making it a perfect time for Pat to bring up some news out of Utah that would turn his smoldering grumpiness into a full-on inferno. A local paper in Salt Lake City, Deseret News, decided to publish a thinly veiled and passive aggressive op-ed criticizing "strident partisans" and "ultra conservative special interest organizations" operating in Utah. Who were they really going after? Glenn explained on radio Monday.

"They are taking Mike Lee apart in Utah. And I'm sorry, I really don't understand how you can look at Mike Lee and say he's an extremist," Glenn said. "I don't know when it became radical, especially in places like Utah to stand for the Constitution of the United States, but if you don't stand with people like Mike Lee, who is decent, honorable, quiet, adjusted, willing to work with people -"

Pat and Glenn dissected the article, which was written as a point/counter-point between a Republican and Democrat centered on a recent study showing Utahans want Congress to work with President Obama.

"Both of them progressive," Glenn said.

The Republican, Frank Pignanelli, wrote:

Most Utahns are pleased that our congressional delegation occupies extremely powerful positions. But we are also a proud people … and hope our representatives do not upset this opportunity to solve some of the many problems with the federal government. As the Utah Policy poll demonstrates, we want solutions to immigration, national debt, Social Security and all the troubles plaguing the federal government. Sorry, guys — the pressure is on.

"Yes, we do. Yes, we do," Glenn said. "And progressives have not given us any solutions except pile -- by the way, the progressives have had control of the Congress pretty much without exception, since World War I. With the exception of the 1920s and Ronald Reagan.  Can you think of any other time?  Possibly, possibly JFK.  Other than that, it's been an open runway.  An open runway for progressive policies.  How much debt have we had?  How is that working out for us?"

Pignanelli continued:

Ultraconservative special-interest organizations — especially those from out-of-state — should read and heed this barometer of Utah emotions. We despise their ridiculous threats against our federal lawmakers to take positions and make statements contrary to how we conduct business. Further, stacks of analysis document how Utah conservatives are of a different flavor than right-wing purists in other states.

"Why don't they just send a message right to Matt Kibbe?  It's MattKibbe@freedomworks.org.  You don't have to make it so cryptic.  Just send him a letter," Glenn said. "They're talking about Freedom Works."

Glenn also interpreted "right-wing purists in other states" as representatives in Texas.

But Glenn didn't just stand up for Mike Lee from the attacks from the press. He also criticized his good friend Jon Huntsman, who recently called Lee an "embarrassment".

"If you think [Lee's] an extremist and you keep going to -- and, yes, I'll say it, you keep going to people like Jon Huntsman. You're in dire trouble because that stuff won't work. We've had that now for a hundred years. That doesn't work. You have to reattach yourself to the Constitution of the United States. That's not radical," Glenn said.

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:
