Ginni Thomas — Wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas — Visits With Glenn at CPAC

Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, sat down with Glenn Thursday morning on The Glenn Beck Program. Broadcasting live from CPAC in Washington D.C., Glenn talked with Mrs. Thomas about the passing of Antonin Scalia, Donald Trump's presidential run and her support for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

GLENN: You have lived in a nasty world for a very long time. And yet, you're happy. You're a happy conservative warrior.

GINNI: Well, most days. Some of my friends might not say that happens every day. But, yeah, I'm from Nebraska. I've got to fight for the country, like my parents did. I'm my mother's daughter more than my husband's wife.

GLENN: My wife has become more and more protective of me. And we were in Vegas, and these women really --- they were Trump supporters --- and they were nasty. I mean, really Brownshirt nasty. And I saw a different side of my wife come out. I mean, it was almost a chick fight. It was amazing. Do you have a hard time not saying things?

GINNI:  Oh, my husband is the best man walking the face of the earth. And, yeah, I'm going to do everything I can. We're in a fight for the country, and it's over ideas. And I believe the husband's ideas are in line with Ginni's ideas and what my parents believed in for the country. And so, yeah, you fight for your ideas. That's what CPAC is about, that's what we're doing every day. Why even do this unless you cared passionately about your beliefs and your principles?

GLENN: How is he holding up with the passing of Scalia? It must be weird to work with people for so long, and everybody in that room is a legend.

GINNI: Yes, he was. He's a great --- I mean, I can't even use it in the past, but Justice Scalia fills the world, not just a room, not just the court. I mean, he was gregarious and wonderful and brilliant. And the way he worked with my husband, they were like two friends from different places.

Clarence said the other day at a memorial that Scalia was from an educated, elite, northeast home, and Clarence came from an illiterate family in the southeast. But they found themselves on the path together to save the country and to believe in the Constitution and the things they were fighting for.  

So now we have an assault on constitutional governance, and he fights on the inside over there, and he's lost a big friend. And it's painful, as any death is of a very close friend. And yet, it has national repercussions. And it will probably be really bad. So we've got to fight even harder, Glenn.

GLENN: I saw that it was strange to see in the newspaper that your husband asked a question, and it was like, stop the world . . . Clarence Thomas said something! But I took that as your husband recognizing the position and the void and stepping into some new shoes.

GINNI: Yes, I was surprised too. He came home at like 3 o'clock. I was like, "What happened?" I always hear about it on the outside. So he said, "I think Sam needs some more help now," meaning Sam Alito. I mean, you know, Nino Scalia filled a big room, and the oral arguments and everything. So, you know, everybody has to step up when somebody big has come out of the picture and died.

So that's what I felt like when Barbara Olsen died. Like, I had to stop being in the shadows. I had to be more out there. So Barbara Olsen did that for me in a way that I'm sure Justice Scalia's passing will do for a lot of people who followed and loved him.

GLENN: As I was reflecting on his life, I thought to myself, I wish we would have focused on this. The friendship between him and Ginsburg --- is, quite honestly, I think one of the most important legacies that he left. That you can be polar opposites, and yet you can be dear, dear friends.

GINNI: She spoke at the memorial just the other day at the Mayflower. So that's available on C-SPAN too. And her words about her friend that she --- they both disagreed with each other, are very compelling. And are a model for civility and disagreement among Americans who love America.

GLENN: Let's talk a little about, what do you think is happening with the country and with Ted Cruz's chances? I mean, I know you're a political activist. You're wearing a #CruzCrew button.

GINNI: Yes, yes. I think there's one more chance for Ted Cruz. I think Marco Rubio needs to leave. I think it would be mano a mano and conservative versus establishment if we could have Ted Cruz versus Donald Trump. And Donald Trump was kind of my second choice until I started seeing more about him. And when the establishment started embracing him, I started like, "Hmm. Maybe that's not --- maybe I should learn more."

GLENN: What was your pivot point?

GINNI: When the establishment embraced him in order to take Cruz out. They are so threatened by Ted Cruz because they know the man is principled. And so he might not be the guy you want over for dinner. But he is our Churchillian candidate who can right the ship. What do you think?

GLENN: How much trouble are we in? Will you vote for Donald Trump if he's the candidate?

GINNI: Ask me that later, please. I don't know. I, I guess I have to. I don't really want to answer that right now.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
