Glenn left ‘unsatisfied’ after interview with Carly Fiorina

Carly Fiorina announced her candidacy for President of the United States over the weekend, and Glenn asked her to come onto the radio show Tuesday to discuss some of the issues. While Glenn liked some of what Fiorina had to say, he wasn’t completely sold on her as a candidate. What happened?

"We had Carly Fiorina on a few minutes ago, and I left unsatisfied," Glenn said. "I just don't feel like I found her passion."

"I strangely really like her, even though I think she danced around some of the questions... just feel like I don't know if I found her passion."

Listen to the interview below:

Stu found her answer to a question about Libertarianism a little evasive.

GLENN: How would you describe yourself when it comes to Libertarianism? Do you have any streak of Libertarianism in you?

CARLY: Well, depends what you mean by that.

GLENN: Well, I think Libertarianism -- other than being strong on individual rights and small government is really defined by the person. So how would you define Libertarianism, and do you have any of that in you?

CARLY: I certainly believe that this nation became the greatest on the face of the earth and in all of human history because our founders had basic confidence and trust in each individual and their potential, their God-given gift, and their ability to live lives of dignity, purpose, and meaning, with responsibility. I mean, that's the foundation of this nation. And so, to me, that is the core of who we are. Because this is the only nation on the face of the earth, and truly in all of human history, that was founded on this basic belief in the capacity for life of dignity and purpose and meaning on the part of an individual.

That's pretty profound. And it's incredibly important. I also think that there are things that we know work better. You know, we know that children grow up stronger if they have a loving mother and father. We know that communities are stronger when people have a stake in their community. We know that two of the most telling signs of someone's future success in life are whether they finish high school and whether they wait until they get married to bear a child. So those are issues perhaps of culture or lifestyle that I think also impact our ability to build strong communities.

Glenn, Stu, and Pat also want to hear more about her stance on illegal immigration, as she has stated her support for the DREAM Act.

GLENN: Let's go with illegal immigration.  I understand you supported the DREAM Act.  Is that true, and where do you stand now on illegal immigration?

CARLY:  Yeah, well, I supported it after we had done a whole bunch of other things.  The first thing that we need to do.  And we have needed to do it for 20-plus years.  This is an example of the failure of the political class.  We need to secure the border.  We haven't.  We can.  We should.  

And speaking of Canada, we need to secure both the southern border and the northern border, for a whole set of reasons.  Because the illegal immigration problem keeps getting worse.  Because people lose faith in government when government doesn't exercise its responsibility.  Because our enemies know we have a porous border.  

I spent a lot of time in New Hampshire, as you can imagine.  And New Hampshire is suffering from a heroin addiction epidemic.  And those drugs are coming from the Canadian border.  So we have to secure the border.  Then, of course, the second thing we need to do is actually fix the legal immigration system.  It's been broken for 25 years.  Hasn't been fixed under Republicans or Democrats.  We have 16 different visa programs.  We don't have a reliable employer E- verify system so we can hold employers truly accountable when they hire illegals.  And we send the wrong people away, and we let the wrong people in.  All that needs to be done.  It can be done.  It should be done.  It just hasn't been done.

GLENN:  But there's no appetite.  There's absolutely no appetite.

CARLY:  Ah, but that's a question of leadership.  See, Glenn, there is an appetite in the country.  You and I know that.  

GLENN:  I do know that.  

CARLY:  I've been talking to people a lot.  People want these things done.  They are a basic test of competence in government.  And government fails so many tests of competence.  But all of these things -- take leadership, which is why I'm running for presidency.

PAT:  Carly, what would you do to secure the border?  We've tried to have a bill that mandated a border fence.  They finished about 5 percent of it the way it was supposed to be built.  But what would you -- what steps would you take?

CARLY:  You and I know, Glenn, and, by the way, the American people know too, that it's really not rocket science to secure a border.  It takes manpower.  It takes money.  But mostly it takes will.  Political willpower.  So let's just go get it done.  This isn't difficult, actually.  It's just, no one will get it done.  Just like no one will fix the VA.  We continue to serve our veterans in such a poor way.  It's like no one will fix the fact that Tom Coburn every year lays out in excruciating detail hundreds upon hundreds of billions of dollars of fraud, waste, abuse, and corruption.  No one in Washington does anything about it.  None of these things are difficult to do.  They just haven't been done.

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.
