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.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
