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:

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
