Mark Meadows: 'If You Can't Make Them See the Light, Make 'Em Feel the Heat'

North Carolina Congressman and House Freedom Caucus member Mark Meadows (R-NC) joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday to talk Trump and picking up the pieces of the conservative movement. Meadows, one of the few who stood up to John Boehner, has become something of a pariah to people who are supposed to be on his side.

The Freedom Caucus is slated to speak with Donald Trump next week.

"[Trump] wants to have a meeting with you and the Freedom Caucus, I think next week, is that going to happen? If so, what are you expecting? And what could he say that might change your mind?" Glenn asked.

Gauging expectations in Washington is tricky business, let alone when it comes to figuring out what Donald Trump might say.

"I know that when you come to Washington, D.C., it's real easy to talk a good game and get here and not fight," Meadows said. "My biggest concern is if Donald Trump is willing to not only talk about some of the issues that are important to moms and dads on Main Street, Glenn. It's really about making sure that those conservative solutions that have consistently worked throughout history get implemented."

Separation of powers and checks and balances have always been important to the survival of the Republic, but they would be imperative in dealing with a Trump administration.

"I think the real defining difference here is hopefully two-fold. One is this is not about having a dictator at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," Meadows said. "However, on some of those policy issues where it's very hard to figure out exactly where Donald Trump is, it's incumbent upon conservatives to speak up," Meadows said.

Meadows emphasized how imperative it is that we speak up and let our ideas and opinions be heard.

"Because, ultimately, if you can't make them see the light, you need to make them feel the heat. And that's what we need to do. And I intend to do that," Meadows said.

Is it true what Glenn's heard that with Cruz out of the race, constitutionalists in D.C. are facing increasing pressure from the establishment?

"It is true. I think what we have, Glenn, is really a battle for the heart and soul of democracy and certainly for Washington, D.C.. But I do have faith in our God and in 'We, the People' who are willing to come alongside. So no matter how lonely it is, we're fighting a fight that we cannot afford to lose," Meadows said.

Despite the negatives and hatred stirred up this primary season, one huge blessing has surfaced: We know who our friends are and who will stand with us. There has been a separating of the wheat from the chaff, and we know who will stand for truth and principles, no matter the consequences.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
