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:

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
