Would Rand Paul’s policies lead to a terror attack?

On radio Friday, Glenn spoke at length with Sen. Rand Paul about his candidacy and his policies. Many are concerned about the foreign policy of a Libertarian candidate, so Glenn asked him what he would say to those who think a Libertarian stance could lead to a terror attack. Dr. Paul went into detail on his stance on the surveillance state, the Middle East, and the PATRIOT Act.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment:

GLENN: How do you respond to people who would -- I think I know you well enough to know that you mean what you say, and you will do these things, but when you get into the domestic spying, you said in your speech that on day number one, you will revoke that executive order and you will stop the spying on Americans. What do you say to people who would then, the minute we'd get hit, and we are going to get hit one way or other. It is a matter of time before something happens. What would you say to people who say well, it's your fault, because that's what will happen.

PAUL: Well, people say this about the PATRIOT Act. I tried to get rid of the PATRIOT ACT, because I think it turns the Constitution up-side down. People said what would you rely on. I said couldn't we just for a day rely on the Constitution? The same way with the spying program.

I'm not saying don't use intelligence. I think we should use our intelligence to find out about people who might attack us.

If you are here, you moved here from Pakistan or from Yemen last year and you are calling people back in Yemen and are plotting, and we have evidence, we should look at your phone records. If your records include 20 people you called in the country and in Yemen, and there is suspicion and you take it to a judge, look at their phone records. I don't care if you go 20 hops into the material looks for people who are terrorists. I just want you to ask an judge and put an individual's name on the warrant.

What I object to is the warrant that Snowden revealed, said Verizon on it. I don't know anyone named Mr. Verizon. Mr. Verizon doesn't have possession of hundreds of millions of phone calls he has the right to divulge. You need of warrants that are individualized. This was a big deal. Just finished reading Mike Lee's take on this. Have you seen Mike Lee's new book?

GLENN: Yes, I have.

PAUL: In the book, he tells the story of John Wilkes, a story about his opposition to the king, because the king came after him with a warrant without his name on it. This is what began this whole history of the 4th Amendment that we would individualize -- the government, no matter who it was, had to have your name on a warrant. It can't be a blanket warrant for anybody's stuff.

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.

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?
