Chris Matthews May Need a Mojito for the GOP Debate in Iowa

The Context

Following the news that Donald Trump dropped out of the GOP debate in Iowa --- that mean ol' Megyn Kelly asks tough questions --- Chris Matthews of MSNBC's Hardball said this: "Who is going to watch a debate between two Cubans?"

Liberals Love Labels

Nice work, Chris Matthews. Archie Bunker would be proud. Why is it that conservatives are labeled racists and bigots, but liberals are the ones who put everyone into a category? Who sees people through the filter of color? Liberals do, that's who.

Déjà Vu

Remember when Chris Matthews forgot Barack Obama was black? That was so big of him, wasn't it? It was the 2010 State of the Union, and Matthews got so caught up in the president's speech he became color blind.

"'All of a sudden, I'm listening to him and I'm like, he's so smart. He's like white.' That is what he's saying," Glenn mimicked Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "'I forgot he's so much like me, he could be white. I almost said, he should join our country club. And then I realized he's black. And then I'm like, hey, dude, you can't come in. You can park my car, but you can't come in.'"

You're Only an Ethnic Group If It Fits the Liberal Agenda

On Saturday Glenn endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for President of the United States. He used very specific words because the liberal media won't use them --- they just don't fit the agenda.

"You know why everyone played my endorsement --- and I said it this way so they had to admit that he was Hispanic --- I said, 'That's why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz to be the first Hispanic-American president.' Because nobody says that."

Common Sense Bottom Line

Chris Matthews' statement was a true racist statement. Ted Cruz would be the first Hispanic-American president. But don't hold your breath for the media to report either.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Did you see that Chris Matthews said, "Who is going to watch a debate between two Cubans?"

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Is that -- I mean, is there any way to read other than as a real true racist statement.

PAT: Racist. I don't think so.

GLENN: That is a true racist statement.

STU: Yeah. Because he's a guy too, we've always questioned, "Why are you seeing this 4 percent tax cut as a racial issue?"

GLENN: Because he sees everything as a racist -- which usually means you're self-diagnosing.

STU: Everything. Yeah.

PAT: Did anybody else think of the remaining guys as two Cubans? First of all, there's a lot of white guys there.

GLENN: No, they never say that. Nobody ever refers to them --

PAT: Never.

GLENN: You know why everyone played my endorsement -- and I said it this way so they had to admit that he was Hispanic. I said, "That's why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz to be the first Hispanic-American president." Because nobody says that.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I wanted to make sure that we just slipped that in there.

STU: Yeah, that's smart.

GLENN: Let's just slip that in there.

STU: I did see it in multiple news reports too. That's interesting.

GLENN: And they cut everything else off. Because I said three different things about after that. But I put "Hispanic president" first because just a little salt in the wound at the left just a little. Oh, we can play that game too all day long.

STU: It worked too. That's funny.

GLENN: Yeah, you know, it's truly amazing that none of them will talk about that, but the minute you actually have to -- now that Trump is out. That vacuum of Trump. Now you see them reveal their true colors. Who wants to listen to a couple of -- who wants to listen to a couple of Cubans?

PAT: That's crazy.

GLENN: That is crazy. Crazy racist. Crazy racist.

STU: Do you think there's anything to that other theory?

GLENN: What other theory?

STU: I guess where people have been talking about, the theory is that he had some incident in his past, which he potentially maybe like ran over a minority and is now spending the rest of his life playing penance HEP for this because he made a promise as he was driving away? If I can just get through this --

PAT: I'll make everything a racial issue.

STU: Everything. I don't know.

GLENN: What kind of --

JEFFY: Well, that theory was put forth on one of the shows on this network.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: The Pat & Stu Show?

(chuckling)

STU: The bottom line is I got a call in my office by someone who said that was true. I don't know. It's out there. He needs to answer it.

GLENN: Okay. I got it. I got it.

PAT: Well, we should have known when he said this.

CHRIS: You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour.

STU: I mean, seriously.

PAT: So the rest of the time you think about that the whole time. This guy is black.

STU: He's black. He's still black. Black.

PAT: It's a black guy.

GLENN: But all of a sudden, I'm listening to him and I'm like, "He's so smart. He's like white."

STU: Right. That's kind of what he said.

GLENN: That is what he's saying. I forgot he's so much like me, he could be white. I almost -- I almost said, he should join our country club. And then I realized he's black. And then I'm like, hey, dude, you can't come in. You can park my car, but you can't come in.

STU: This is what it sounds like.

JEFFY: Yes, it does.

STU: I don't know if he just overthinks this stuff, but he's constantly putting every issue into those racial terms, so it is a little revealing yet again on that one.

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
