Jonah Goldberg on Post-election Results: The Living Will Envy the Dead

Jonah Goldberg, senior editor at National Review and author of Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Tuesday to finish an earlier discussion about the future of the conservative movement. Glenn wanted Goldberg's opinion on two post-election scenarios --- a Trump presidency or a Clinton presidency --- and their impact on conservatism.

“I want to talk to you about 11/9, the day after the election," Glenn said. "We have such division in our country right now and in the conservative movement that I don't even know what it means anymore. What does the party do the day after the election and in the next year, let's say, first scenario, Donald Trump loses? What happens?"

Goldberg shared his views on the battle facing conservatives and also offered quick-witted insights on Hillary's recent health crisis: I really couldn't care less that she's got pneumonia. People get pneumonia. People get sick. The problem is how she handled it.

HIGHLIGHTS OF GLENN’S CONVERSATION WITH JONAH GOLDBERG

On CollapseGate: If you're living a fearful, paranoid life, you do things in a way that seem really silly and paranoid and fearful and you think you must have something to hide. — Goldberg

It could be pneumonia, it could be Parkinson's, it could be allergies: They have a long history of avoiding the truth at all costs. How do we know she doesn't have Parkinson's or something else? — Glenn

Presidents, polio and the press: Thumb-sucking journalism school seminars have been talking about how a presidential candidate's health is a legitimate subject since FDR fooled the country about, you know, his polio. — Goldberg

Glenn's reaction to Goldberg speaking poorly about a progressive president: I expect better from you, the man who was taught me to hate Woodrow Wilson. — Glenn

Regarding a recent New York Times article on Hillary 6.0: Hillary Clinton has been reintroducing herself to the American public for 30 years. — Goldberg

On the #NeverEverForget movement: They will spend the rest of their lives trying to destroy anybody who stood against Donald Trump. — Glenn

Donald Trump's reported plan B to start a television network if he loses: Their goal is to destroy the conservative movement and the Republican Party and replace it with something sort of nationalistic that is sort of European-style nationalistic movement. — Goldberg

The Donald: All of the Donald Trump mini me's in these various primaries have done very, very badly which suggests that people really like Donald Trump, the individual, but his ideas and his ideology, such as they are, are not as popular as a lot of his biggest boosters claim. — Goldberg

The short answer on either Trump or Clinton winning: The living will envy the dead. — Goldberg

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!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

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:
