Texas Attorney General Delivers Dose of Hope on Guns, States’ Rights

Ready for some good news? Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is fighting the good fight, standing up for the constitutional rights of average Americans everywhere. Paxton joined The Glenn Beck Program on Tuesday to talk about a host of issues --- including the Second and Tenth Amendments, shining his common sense perspective on key issues.

"Talking to Ken Paxton. He is a guy that you should know, especially if you're in a state like West Virginia. He's your best friend. Because he is fighting the administration on just about everything," Glenn said.

Paxton is leading the charge against an out-of-control federal government and a president that has overstepped his authority. The state of Texas has filed 11 lawsuits against the Obama administration, following the lead and direction of his predecessor, Greg Abbott, now the governor of Texas, who told Paxton, "We're taking them on."

"Before I was in office, [Governor Abbott] fought Obama for six years. He filed 31 lawsuits against the federal government, which is by far a record. Nobody has ever done anything like that, probably in the history of the country," Paxton said.

Paxton is committed to protecting the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.

"If there's any kind of legislation passed that we view as violating the Second Amendment, we'll be back in court fighting it from the attorney general's office. So I think Texans will not put up with it. I think there are a lot of states that will fight back," Paxton said.

On the issue of states' rights and the Tenth Amendment, Glenn wondered how we bridge the gap between a one-size-fits-all approach and preserving those powers granted to the states in the Bill of Rights.

"I know this is more of a question for a politician and you're an attorney general, but how do we bridge this divide if we have one-size-fits-all, instead of what the Constitution calls for --- 50 sizes fit all? How do we bridge this gap?"

The key is education so citizens know when the federal government oversteps its authority.

"It's just the mentality that I think our schools haven't taught. We don't tell our kids. I think we have to start talking about the Tenth Amendment. You know, when I was in law school at the University of Virginia, I remember a student in my class asking about the Tenth Amendment, which basically says that whatever power that is not specifically granted to the federal government, the states have. And my professor, my Constitution law professor said, the Tenth Amendment is irrelevant. Well, that's not true. And that's what we're fighting on. Those are the grounds we're fighting on-- we're trying to take back in the legal system, and I think schools, parents, we need to start talking about states' rights," Paxton said.

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:
