Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin joined The Glenn Beck Program Monday to discuss, among other things, religious liberty and illegal immigration. Top of mind for Glenn was diving into policies that would appeal to constitutional conservatives. McMullin, a big Tenth Amendment advocate, was happy to oblige.
"So, Evan, we have everybody playing to the left or to the center left, and it really seems like nobody really cares about those real true constitutional conservatives," Glenn said.
McMullin agreed, offering solutions that would bring back power to the people.
"First of all, when it comes to the courts, I genuinely believe, and have always believed, that we need originalists on the court. Yeah, this isn't a campaign promise that I made in order to appease Republicans like Donald Trump. This is something I believe firmly. The Constitution, I believe, is an inspired document, and we need our Supreme Court judges to take an originalist perspective on it," McMullin said.
Additionally, McMullin would focus heavily on restoring Article I of the Constitution.
"Right now, the executive branch has taken over the powers that are explicitly given only to the Congress, only to the people's representatives in Congress, to make laws. Those powers need to be shifted back to the executive, or sorry, back to the legislative branch, where the people's representatives are accountable for the laws they make. Right now, we have bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., writing all these major laws that get in the way of economic freedom and just liberty in general, and the American people have very little recourse. That has to change," McMullin said.
With news breaking over the weekend that one of Clinton's close advisor's, Huma Abedin, worked for 12 years at a radical Muslim journal, Glenn wanted McMullin's take on the Muslim Brotherhood.
"Can you tell me what you know about the Muslim Brotherhood and if we have a problem with infiltration in the government," Glenn asked.
As a former CIA operative, McMullin was certainly aware of the terrorist-linked group.
"The Muslim Brotherhood is a broad organization, that in some places is extreme, and in other countries, it's moderate pro-democracy. It's just very broad across North Africa and the Middle East. But I will say that in certain places, it's more extreme, and it can be a precursor to terrorist organizations. But we need to be careful to understand that that is not always the case," McMullin said. "For example, in Tunisia, you have pro-democracy elements of the Muslim Brotherhood. So it's a diverse, loose organization. But I'm opposed to Islamic extremism everywhere, wherever it is. But let's be careful to label it correctly, where it exists."
