Who Is the Most Honorable Family in Politics Today?

With both George and Barbara Bush being hospitalized just days before the presidential inauguration --- and in light of the respectful letter Mr. Bush sent President-elect Trump about missing the festivities --- Glenn and his co-hosts paused to reflect on the Bush family.

"Say what you want about the Bush policy, but they respect the office of the presidency," Co-host Pat Gray said.

Glenn concurred, noting the reverence Bush 41, Bush 43 and Jeb have for the United States and the presidency.

"I truly believe that the Bush family is one of, I would say probably the, most honorable family in politics today," Glenn added.

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Do we have an update on George and Barbara Bush? I know she was hospitalized yesterday, which was really concerning. But he has been -- he was really sick, he had to have an operation yesterday to remove something from his throat, a blockage in his throat. Supposedly doing well. She is just in, as a precaution, because she was coughing a lot.

JEFFY: I'm sure she was just -- I mean, that happens a lot. Husband and wife come in like that. And she's really concerned and starting to freak out.

GLENN: Yeah, they're the kind of couple too though that I think love each other so much and have been together for so long, that they're the kind of couple that dies together, you know what I mean?

I said that to Tania. She said -- because I hadn't heard that Barbara Bush was in the hospital. She had just gotten a text alert. And I said, "No, it's George H.W. Bush."

And she said, "No, Barbara has just been put in too." And we were talking about it. And I said, "That's the kind of couple that they die together." They're just this sweet pair that go together.

And she said, "I don't know. I think maybe they'd do anything to not have to comment on why they're not going to go to the Trump inauguration."

What do you think is the giant scam?

STU: I don't know. His letters seem to kind of --

GLENN: I didn't read the letter. I didn't read the letter.

STU: I mean, he said like, "My doctors tell me if I go outside in January, I might wind up 6 feet under."

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: It's interesting that really until the election, the Bushes really did not show any love at all to Donald Trump.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Since then, they have really respected the process and they support him.

GLENN: They have to. That's what we're supposed to do. We're supposed to do that. You can disagree with the policies --

PAT: Say what you want about the Bush policy, but they respect the office of the presidency. I think -- I think H.W. did. George W. Bush. As much as I'm not a fan, he did and does.

GLENN: I have -- and Jeb.

PAT: Jeb.

GLENN: I truly believe that the -- the Bush family is one of I would say probably the most honorable family in politics today. Do you think of a -- do you think of a family -- I mean, there's very few.

STU: Yeah, they definitely respect the office. And I think they do those things well. I mean, you would expect it. It's the only family that I can think of off the top of my head that's had two president --

GLENN: Kennedys.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, not two presidents.

PAT: Name another guy too, name another man who would have put up with the bashing he's received over the last years, where everything has been blamed on him. It was absurd the things they blamed on him. They said nothing about him. He never said anything. You never heard George W. Bush, "No, I didn't do that. That's not my fault. That's Obama." You never heard any of that come out of him. He just took it. He just took it.

STU: Cheney was a little bit more outspoken.

PAT: And you would expect that from Cheney.

GLENN: Yeah. George Bush said to me right at the end of his time in the Oval, he said, "I am prepared -- I did what I felt was right. And I am prepared to be the most hated man in the next 50 years. Let history, once everybody involved in this is gone, let history judge."

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: "I'm prepared."

Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his role in the death of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca, who specializes in self-defense law, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain exactly what must be proven in order for those charges to stand.

Did Chauvin act reasonably in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's death, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control?

Branca also argued that the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it "impossible" for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.
