Is Lorreta Lynch Calling For Violence?

The former Attorney General of the United States is feeling trampled upon. So much so that she released a video in a very soft spoken voice --- but the rhetoric didn't exactly match.

LYNCH: I know it's a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.

"What rights? Be specific. What rights?" Glenn asked Monday on radio.

LYNCH: I know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers. And it has been been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference.

"Stop. Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party did? Wasn't it just simple people?" Glenn questioned.

Simple people mischaracterized and condemned as crazy, violent racists.

LYNCH: They've marched. They've bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

"You might have to bleed and die on the streets for it? Is she calling for violence?" Glenn asked.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Who was the person that came out this weekend -- hang on if I have it. That said, "You know, hey, it's time to march. And, you know, in the past, there's been blood and death in the streets."

JEFFY: Loretta Lynch.

GLENN: Yeah, Loretta Lynch. Listen to this.

LORETTA: I know it's a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on, and even being rolled back.

PAT: Which rights are those that have been assailed, trampled on, and rolled back?

GLENN: Now, why would you say that, Pat? Why would you say that, Pat?

PAT: Because that's exactly what they said in the very beginning of the Bush administration.

GLENN: No, no. That's what they said to us, during the Obama administration.

PAT: And they said it to us -- yes. Yes.

GLENN: We would say, our rights.

What rights? Be specific. What rights?

PAT: Right. Right. And, frankly, we were hard-pressed to name the specifics because we knew there were violations. We knew that they were misusing their power, but it was really hard to point to any one thing and say, "Well, look, they've made it so we can't talk. We can't go to church. We can't --

GLENN: IRS. IRS.

PAT: IRS is a great one, and we have the examples now.

GLENN: Freedom of press.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: The wiretapping of the press, we know.

PAT: All the prosecutions of the journalists under Obama, which was more than all other presidents combined.

GLENN: Combined. How about the I want your church to deliver all of its sermons about homosexuality.

PAT: Oh, yeah. In Houston. Right.

GLENN: I mean, there are three big ones --

PAT: Huge.

GLENN: Aren't all three of those in the First Amendment?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: So we just got to the First Amendment.

STU: Certainly there's no violations to the second.

GLENN: Right. Taking away -- taking away every person who is Social Security, that had -- what was it? That had someone else picking up their check. If you didn't go and pick up your check in person or cash your check in person, you lost your right to guns.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, they just overturned that. That was one of the last things they did. And he just took that and through executive order --

PAT: Which was great. Good for him. Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to that.

PAT: But there's more.

LORETTA: We know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Play one more line.

LORETTA: It's been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals --

GLENN: Stop. Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party did?

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: Wasn't it just simple people --

PAT: Yes. And they condemned them as violent racists.

GLENN: Violent racists.

PAT: Crazies.

JEFFY: Oh. Called them names.

PAT: Extremists. Jeez.

GLENN: They said, this is not going to be easy. We have no -- we have no heritage of doing this. But it is time for good people to stand up and say, "No, this is not who we are." And stand up peacefully. And that was deemed we were anti-government.

PAT: And it was the last thing in the world any of us wanted to do because we don't do that kind of stuff. We all have jobs, unlike the left.

GLENN: Correct. We don't do it.

Okay. So first -- first, she says our rights are being trampled.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And it would be very easy for us to say, what rights?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just like they did.

PAT: Just like they did.

GLENN: But that's not helpful.

PAT: But it is fun. I will say that.

GLENN: It is fun. Then she says, it's just ordinary people. And we could say, oh, like us?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Probably shouldn't say that, but it is fun.

And then the third one...

VOICE: Who have made the difference. They've marched. They've bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

PAT: She seems to be saying --

GLENN: You might have to bleed and die on the streets for it. Is she calling for violence?

PAT: Right? Is that too much of a stretch? I'll tell you, that's a lot less of a stretch than we're targeting this district. A lot less.

GLENN: Yes.

JEFFY: That's for sure.

STU: Yeah. I just don't think it is, but...

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: And they have -- the left has the heritage of doing that.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: It was the Weather Underground that was the left. It was Malcolm X that was the left. It was the Black Panthers that was the left. So help us out here.

STU: Half of these people are marching in Che Guevara T-shirts, which was the left.

GLENN: Yes. Right. I mean, it's so very clear. And, again, we could spend time talking about that. And it feels good.

PAT: It does.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
