The Sad Evolution of Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio is a guy who was a Tea Party guy. He was not an establishment guy. He was running against Charlie Crist --- and we like Marco Rubio and we've watched him. And then he got into office, and he did the Gang of Eight bill. And then he called --- he called Ted Cruz every name under the sun and said, "He's just planted a poison pill in the Gang of Eight bill. He's a liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar." And so people started to believe that Ted Cruz was a liar.

And then he admitted a week ago --- and I'm sorry --- he didn't even admit, he lied about what the Gang of Eight bill was. He came out a week ago and said, "Well, I was only part of the Gang of Eight bill because it was a poison pill."

So wait a minute, Marco.

You accuse Ted Cruz of doing a 38-word amendment to your bill, accused him of a poison pill, which it clearly was, and you called him a liar because it was a poison pill and he didn't come clean with that. At the time, he wouldn't come clean that it was a poison pill. And now you come out, after calling him a liar, and you say the entire bill was a poison pill? Unbelievable.

I want to play something from Spencer Tracy --- in a movie called State of the Union --- where a guy, Spencer Tracy, is running for president. And he gets caught up in running for president, gets caught up with all of the wrong people from the establishment in the Republican Party.

He starts out with the right idea, and he becomes very popular. And then as he's going, he's lost his soul. And his friends reject him. His friends, he comes back, and they're like, "You're not the same guy. You're just part of the problem." And somebody asks him, right before a big broadcast, "What makes you different now than all the rest of them?"

I want you to listen to this, and I want you to think about Marco Rubio. Because Marco Rubio used to say the things that were real. And then he got caught up in the system and the power and the establishment and being popular with all the people like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush and all the establishment . . . Mitch McConnell, that is, "You can win, man. You can win. Just play our way. If you just do the Gang of Eight bill, you can win." And he's getting worse and worse and worse, to the point where I don't recognize him anymore.

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn break down the details:

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:

Our police officers are called racists, killers, and murderers even if all the evidence suggests the opposite is true. With the bodycam footage and information we have so far, it looks like the Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant "is a hero," Glenn Beck said.

On the radio program, Glenn, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray discussed the fatal shooting of the 16-year-old who appeared to be about to stab another girl when the officer shot her. They agreed that the officer arrived at an extremely chaotic scene, and within seconds was able to identify the threat and react. But that hasn't prevented the Left from demonizing him — like LeBron James tweeting the officer's photo and saying "you're next."

Glenn went on to say it's time for the Fraternal Order of Police to stand with its officers and for Columbus police temporarily to walk from the job to show the Left and the media unity for the officer currently under investigation.

"I want you to either call or maybe you tweet today, 'Police we support you. I stand with the police. #Istandwiththepolice.' Our police are under attack," Glenn stated.

"And let me tell you something, police officers, if you are a racist and you're out shooting people, I will be the first to come and say, 'put that guy in prison' ... but the vast majority of police officers are good and competent," he continued. "And they're doing their best. And they're risking their lives for us. I stand with the police!"

"Make sure you let your local police officers know that," Glenn added. "And FOP, I'm telling you, you have to do a strike in some of these cities, and Columbus would be a really good place to do it. ... You have got to send a message to the media and everyone else. One day without police in one of these cities and you see what happens. You don't want the police? You want to 'reimagine' the police? Go ahead! Until the White House stops this nonsense, walk."
