Jake Tapper Shocked at Glenn's Truthful Tweet

The Context

One of Glenn's tweets during last night's GOP debate raised a few eyebrows, including CNN's Jake Tapper. Glenn's honest assessment of Rubio's performance --- 'Rubio is killing it' --- threw Tapper for a loop, prompting him to tweet 'Interesting; Beck is a major Cruz supporter.' In turn Glenn tweeted back, 'Not "interesting Jake, just honest."'

The sequence of tweets went like this:

Why Is Telling the Truth Shocking?

Apparently there is so much dishonesty in the media, it's actually a story if someone tells the truth. Not only did Jake Tapper comment on Glenn's tweet, but The Hill and Politico ran stories as well.

"He had a great night," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program. "And how come I can't say that?"

Glenn went on to share his perspective on both Rubio's and Cruz's debate performances.

“I personally put them as a tie for first,” Glenn said. “One appealed to your heart. One appealed to your head. Cruz was much better on substance. Rubio was much better on zingers. It felt good to watch Marco Rubio. But it was good --- I mean, it was real substantive. And that's not taking anything away from Marco Rubio because he had some good substantive stuff. But he was better at zingers. Cruz was better at substance.”

Cruz Welcomes Rubio Joining the Fight

Cruz also answered honestly to Jake Tapper's post-debate question about Glenn's tweet.

“Listen, I actually agree Marco did a good job tonight,” Cruz responded. “He did something tonight that he's never done, which he actually for the first time took on Donald Trump. And I'm glad he did. Listen, Marco is not my enemy. Marco and I are friends. Marco and I would both make a much better candidate and a much better president than would Donald.”

Cruz's honest answer wasn't lost on co-host Stu Burguiere.

“It doesn't benefit him to say that Marco Rubio would be a competent president. But he said that he would be a much better president than Donald Trump because he's being freaking honest. The same thing you want out of a talk show host, you should at least require that much out of your president,” Stu said. 

Common Sense Bottom Line

The real story here is the media finds honesty shocking and worthy of coverage.

“The media just doesn't get it. Just doesn't get it. I tweeted back to Jake Tapper immediately. It's not interesting. It's just honest. That's it.” Glenn said.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
