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.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
