Dana Loesch Talks Trump, Intimidation, Abuse and Chivalry

Dana Loesch joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday to discuss the Trump campaign and how they have been treating women. In case you’ve been under a rock this week, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was caught on tape grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and has been charged by police for simple assault.

Loesch has signed on with several other female media members calling for the resignation of Lewandowski, a possibility Trump strongly dismisses.

"I want to see some chivalry because that's a conservative principle. Chivalry is a conservative principle," Loesch said. "Respect, because I don't see it from the left. I'm used to seeing this behavior from progressivism. Expecting men to act like gentlemen and women to act like ladies are conservative principles. That's what I want to see. I want to see him removed from this campaign."

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Nobody Loves Women Like Donald Trump

The Donald loves women and women love the Donald, at least that’s what he’d like everyone to believe. The past couple of weeks, Donald Trump has seemed to stumble when it comes to his treatment of women and his newfound views on abortion. It's already beginning to show --- polls reveal Trump's negativity rating is at a high of 73 percent.

"He is just falling apart," Glenn said.

Loesch went one step further and revealed one of her biggest frustrations.

"It aggravates me when people say, 'Well, you have some conservative women who are acting like they're social justice warriors because they're taking offense to this or that.' That's called common decency. There's a huge difference," she said.

Dana Aint Nobody’s Puppet

Loesch dug into her views on the latest from Trump, and Glenn quickly cleared up something people on Facebook seemed to be confused about.

“Okay. So tell me what you’re doing because I love this. When you released this, my Facebook was filled with ‘Glenn Beck puppet, Dana Loesch.’ You’ve seen this?” Glenn asked.

“And as I said on the air yesterday, nobody is telling you what to do. Nobody in their right mind is telling you what you need – ‘listen, Dana, you come into my office. I’m telling you what to do.’”

Loesch concurred that no such collusion has taken place.

“For like Ted Cruz. ‘You need to say this about Donald Trump right now’ --- that never happened.”

Girl Talk

Lately, the only thing unifying about the Trump campaign is all those lining up in opposition. Dana and Glenn talked about her effort to bring women in the media together to stand up for common decency --- but co-host Pat Gray of course had to introduce a little innuendo.

“I know them personally and have met in person before, so it’s not just an online thing. And, you know, ladies talk,” Loesch said.

“The ones that [Cruz] supposedly got together with?” Pat asked, disingenuously.

Loesch saw right through the question and answered quickly.

“Right. Right. Not the mistresses. I know. I’m saving that one for ‘Barbara Wa-wa.’ But, no, we had been talking back channel, and we were thinking, “Something really needs to be said about this because this is more than just --- a campaign issue. This is an issue with the media.”

Fair and Biased

This campaign season has been anything but fair and balanced. Trump has dominated TV time and it’s apparent who the pundits prefer. Dana explained how it’s possible to still have deeply held beliefs and have a preference while still being honest.

“I get aggravated when I see people on television and radio, they think that everybody is dumb and they’re not going to know where they’re coming from. We’re going to be in the neutral. We’re right there in the neutral,” Loesch said. “They want you to think that they’re still neutral. And that doesn’t exist. This is about a free press. This is about how a reporter should be able to go up and ask a question and not get manhandled by this needle neck who thinks he’s badder than Secret Service.”

Bruises Speak Louder Than Words

The video is one thing, but the bruises are a whole new ballgame for Glenn.

“If she was pulled down and she didn’t have bruises on her arm, I don’t think people would have paid as much attention to this,” Glenn said. “But because of those bruises --- Dana, is there any doubt --- you even put the bruises on your own arm or your own face and then you call the police and say to the police, ‘My husband just did this to me,’ any doubt that they’d take him away in handcuffs?”

“No. That’s usually kind of how it goes. When you watch Cops, that’s usually how it goes,” Loesch responded.

Recognizing Abuse

“We know what it looks like. We know what abuse looks like,” Glenn said.

Loesch reveled just how personal abuse is to her.

“Right. I grew up, and I’ve seen it in my family. So I’m not going to be lectured to anybody who wants to sit here and tell me what a battered woman looks like because I woke up and I saw it every damn day of my life, so I will not be lectured by anybody on that,” Loesch said.

While Lewandowski will have his day in court, the video and bruises are more than enough probable cause for the charges. Whether it was illegal or not, the abuse and intimidation is recognizable to any who have seen it up close and personal.

Living Through Abuse and Intimidation

Glenn and Loesch both have lived through abuse and intimidation and can see it a mile away.

“These guys --- you can recognize those guys, can’t you? If you’ve lived in it, you recognize these guys a million miles away. And they’re doing the thing that enablers and abusers always do,” Glenn said.

Loesch agreed.

"You recognize intimidation," she said. "You recognize intimidation."

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
