Love Potion #9: Cure for the GOP's Panic Attack?

The current saga swirling around the 2016 presidential election involves rumors that Trump's latest gaffes have the GOP looking for a way out.

"Have you seen the rumors? And I have now heard it from two very credible sources that the RNC, or at least the politicians on the Hill that were for Donald Trump and have all lined up for Donald Trump, are now looking at rule number nine," Glenn said Thursday on his radio program.

Rule number nine outlines the RNC's process for filling vacancies in nominations.

In addition to those sources, Glenn also heard from Michael Opelka with TheBlaze.

"He said, 'It's everywhere, that the GOP is in full-fledged panic, and they want out of the Donald Trump thing,'" Glenn shared.

"A little late for that," Co-host Pat Gray chimed in.

"Yes, a little late," Glenn agreed.

"That rule only applies to him withdrawing," Stu said.

This latest speculation comes on the heels of a rumored "intervention" with Trump.

"You remember that meeting we talked about yesterday? We wondered if that were true [and] they were really meeting to have a come to Jesus with him . . . I think that meeting is like, "Is there anything we can do to get you to walk away?" Glenn said.

The exact language of rule number nine reads:

RULE NO. 9

Filling Vacancies in Nominations

(a) The Republican National Committee is

hereby authorized and empowered to fill any and all

vacancies which may occur by reason of death,

declination, or otherwise of the Republican candidate

for President of the United States or the Republican

candidate for Vice President of the United States, as

nominated by the national convention, or the

Republican National Committee may reconvene the

national convention for the purpose of filling any such

vacancies.

(b) In voting under this rule, the Republican

National Committee members representing any state

shall be entitled to cast the same number of votes as

said state was entitled to cast at the national

convention.

(c) In the event that the members of the

Republican National Committee from any state shall

not be in agreement in the casting of votes hereunder,

the votes of such state shall be divided equally,

including fractional votes, among the members of the

Republican National Committee present or voting by

proxy.

(d) No candidate shall be chosen to fill any

such vacancy except upon receiving a majority of the

votes entitled to be cast in the election.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.

A judge has banned Texas father Jeff Younger from speaking about his son, James, who was taken from him by our courts after he refused to call his son a girl. But Jeff said he'd rather go to jail than comply: "I'll appear in handcuffs ... but I'm not taking this tyranny."

Jeff joined Glenn Beck on "Targets of Tyranny" to tell James' story and explain the biggest lessons he's learned while battling our legal system.

"This interview is illegal in the state of Texas," Jeff told Glenn. "I was banned from publishing any blog posts, social media post, publishing a newspaper article, doing any writing at all about my situation. I was also permanently banned from doing interviews, doing podcasts, appearing on television interviews, and these are all specifically laid out," he explained.

"I was also banned from speaking on three political topics. I'm not allowed to talk about anything about transgender issues, gender expansiveness, or whether my son is a boy or a girl. And I have told this judge — and I tell this judge every time I do an interview — I will never follow your illegal and unconstitutional order. I have contempt for her as a judge issuing the order. I have maximum contempt for the tyrannical language of the order, and I will never follow the order," Jeff continued.

"I'm guilty of maximum criminal contempt in the 301st District Court of the state of Texas, and [the judge] is obligated to put me in jail for the maximum sentence, which is 180 days in the jail in Dallas County. Four days later, I'll be in the jail library with the writ of habeas corpus that I've already prepared. We will go to the 5th District, and we will see who's right. I'll appear in handcuffs, her in the judge's robe, but I'm not taking this tyranny. And I'm not going to stop speaking out about my son."

Here's how deep Amazon's ties to the government REALLY go — and why it matters to YOU

The world knows Amazon is an extraordinarily powerful company, but one family’s terrifying story demonstrates just how dark, dominant, and dishonorable the monopolistic corporation truly is. Amy Nelson’s husband, Carl, was accused of an unspecific crime by Amazon — his former employer — in 2020. Even though Carl was never charged with that crime, Amazon still seized nearly all the funds Amy and Carl had spent years acquiring. Everything was taken directly from their bank accounts via civil asset forfeiture. But the dangers of Amazon go even further.

Amy joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail just how menacing the relationship between Amazon and our federal government — specifically the DOJ — truly is.

Donald Trump announced his second run for the White House this week. And while Glenn Beck said he thinks Trump "did everything he needed to do" in his announcement speech — he was disciplined, didn't pick fights, and stayed focused on what's ahead — he still has some advice for the former president.

Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" above to find out what Glenn believes Trump absolutely must do in order to reach as many voters as possible before the 2024 election. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
