Curt Schilling: This Is a Challenging Time to Be a Christian

Curt Schilling, former ESPN analyst and World Series MVP pitcher, has been hammered for exercising his First Amendment rights and speaking out about political correctness. He joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to talk guns in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack, why it's a challenging time to be Christian and why he's on board the Trump train.

"You've been getting a beating for quite some time. And you just won't sit down," Glenn said.

Schilling agreed.

"Isn't that what we're supposed to be doing as Christians, anyway, taking a beating?" Schilling asked. "I say that halfheartedly, but this is, I think, for me -- I don't know about you -- this is a very challenging time for me as a Christian because a lot of the things I'm feeling about people aren't Christian."

All humor aside, Glenn had serious issues to discuss with the former baseball star.

"I want to talk about several things. I want to talk about Donald Trump. I want to talk about the media. And I want to talk about gun control because you've been on a Twitter tirade here about gun control," Glenn said.

"Listen, I'm not a gun nut. I never have been. I was born in Alaska. So I learned how to shoot a gun before I wore a diaper. Because getting killed by a bear on the way to school was actually a possibility in Alaska," Schilling said.

While not a huge gun enthusiast, Schilling does target shoot and fervently defend the Second Amendment.

"My issue and my tirade on the Second Amendment is more, for me, a tirade on the Constitution than it is on the Second Amendment," Schilling said. "Listen, I want my federal government to protect my country, protect my family and take care of the people that can't take care of themselves. Other than that, get out of the way. Let the people take care of . . . we can take care of ourselves. I don't want more federal. I especially don't want more of an administration that is lying and deceitful and phony and fraudulent in my day-to-day life anymore. Get out. Let us do what we can do because we can take care of ourselves."

Changing course, Glenn asked about Schilling's support of Donald Trump.

"Now, let me go here because I don't understand this. You're a Donald Trump supporter," Glenn said.

"If I could pick another candidate, a perfect candidate, yeah, I would pick somebody different. I would pick Mr. Carson. I would give Mr. Carson an authoritative, booming presence that I think he lacked and I would vote for him all day," Schilling said.

However, once Carson left the race, Schilling decided to support Trump. While he doesn't agree with everything Trump has said or done, the real estate mogul has certain attributes that appeal to a shoot-from-hip, say-it-like-it-is maverick like Schilling.

"I'm not making excuses for him, but I want someone with passion. I want someone with conviction, someone that's going to speak from the heart and have a heart for this country," Schilling said.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
