Republicans Refuse to Bend to Bannon's Will and Vote Against Healthcare Bill

In a conference with House Republicans on the health care bill, Steve Bannon told elected officials they had “no choice” but to vote yes and pass Obamacare Lite. Monday on radio, Glenn was thrilled enough Republicans had the will to stand their ground and not cave under threats.

"We need to support them because they are now on a White House enemy’s list. Support those that stood up and had real backbone," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: So in a report from Mike Allen, sources said that Steve Bannon's first words to the Republican members was that they had, quote, no choice, but to vote for the health care bill of President Donald Trump.

Quote, guys, look, this is not a discussion, this is not a debate. You have no choice, but to vote for this bill, end quote.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: A lot of people didn't take kindly to that.

STU: No? You don't think an elected representative of the United States government is going to go in there and just bend over like a Breitbart editor for Steve Bannon? That's surprising.

GLENN: Now, Steve Bannon has apparently told the president to keep a crap list. And I'm cleaning that up. Of people who voted against it.

PAT: Oh, good. Just like Barack Obama. That's great.

GLENN: And Nixon. And Nixon. An enemy's list.

PAT: It's probably worth noting who held firm in this.

GLENN: It is. Who is on this list?

PAT: There's some great people on that list of guys who just said no because this is not good.

GLENN: Badge of honor.

PAT: It's not a good bill.

STU: And, by the way, it's not -- as we pointed out, 15 conservatives, Freedom Caucus members, 18 non-Freedom Caucus Republicans. Okay? So it was actually more people who were not in the Freedom Caucus, even though that's what you'll hear about all day today.

But good names, I mean, Dave Brat, Jim Jordan, Justin Amash, Louie Gohmert, Mark Meadows.

PAT: Great. Louie Gohmert, always there.

STU: Mo Brooks, who still has my favorite interview moment of all time.

PAT: Yeah, we should play that.

GLENN: Is that the one he says -- do you have an economy degree? Yeah, a degree in economics? Yes, actually.

PAT: With honors.

STU: Highest honors, yes.

Thomas Massie is in there as well. Just a great group of people. There are some -- we have to remember, there are some holding the line, and that's good.

GLENN: And we need to support them.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because they are now on a White House enemy's list.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Support those that stood up and had real backbone.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
