Glenn interviews McCain

GLENN: Senator John McCain is with me. Hello, senator, how are you, sir?

SENATOR McCAIN: Hello, Glenn, you rascal, how are you?

GLENN: I'm very good. Listen, I want to start with just a tough question for you. You know that I and I have our differences but I appreciate the fact that you are always a straight talker. So if you don't mind, I want to ask you the toughest question first and that is

SENATOR McCAIN: Okay.

GLENN: Have you checked your tire pressure today?

SENATOR McCAIN: You know, I was just going to go out early and check and, you know, we're on the bus today and I've got to do that and

GLENN: Do you know we could

SENATOR McCAIN: I have a my tire, my pressure gauge says Obama's energy plan.

GLENN: Right. Do you know that if you just, on that big huge bus, if you did that and checked your windshield wiper fluid, we could kiss Saudi Arabia goodbye by Tuesday?

SENATOR McCAIN: All our problems would be over, my friend. I don't know why I didn't think of that.

GLENN: I know. You're not doing your part.

SENATOR McCAIN: Do you think that the tire gauge thing is naive, it's a lie, or just one of the dumbest things you've ever heard come out of somebody's mouth?

SENATOR McCAIN: I just think it's a lack of understanding of the energy crisis in America, the fact that Americans are still paying $4 a gallon for gas and that, of course, ask AAA or anybody else will tell you obviously we should inflate our tires. But that's not an energy policy. That's a public service announcement. That's what it is.

GLENN: Barack Obama said that we have to break our oil addiction and it will take nothing less this is a quote nothing less than a complete transformation of our economy.

SENATOR McCAIN: Oh, my.

GLENN: I mean, you know, I don't know if that's necessarily a good idea.

SENATOR McCAIN: It's going to require, as I've seen you talk about, an "All of the above" approach. Wind, solar, nuclear, offshore drilling, all of the clean coal technology. I'm in Ohio. We're sitting on the world's America sits on the world's largest resources of coal, clean coal technology. Alternate energy. Automobiles that are electric powered. Hybrid. All of the, all of the flex fuel. All of the things we need to do, and nuclear power has got to be, Glenn, a big part of it.

GLENN: How come

SENATOR McCAIN: And he says he doesn't want to store it and he doesn't want to reprocess it. You've got to do that, the spent nuclear fuel. You've got to do it.

GLENN: You know, how come the American people or do you think I I think they are actually starting to wake up to this. For instance, Nancy Pelosi by the way, do you have a copy of her new book?

SENATOR McCAIN: No, I haven't, but I know you read it cover to cover.

GLENN: Yeah oh, no, no, it's fantastic. I bought all 2,000 copies that were sold. Nancy Pelosi is saying, you know, we're not going to drill but she's telling the Democrats if you are in trouble in your own district, you go ahead and say, well, I want to drill, I'm for that. These guys, these guys are lying to the American people about what their real intentions are. Do you believe that or not?

SENATOR McCAIN: 9%, 9% approval rating of congress. The cynicism is justified. Look, the thing that Americans are mad about and my Republican friends led by John Bainer and the house are saying, look, allow a vote, allow a vote. Americans, overwhelming majority of Americans want to drill offshore. So allow a vote on it. Let's let the Democratic instead they shut down and they go on a five week vacation, a five week vacation while Americans are paying $4 a gallon for gas. I mean, you can't make it up. You can't make it up. My session, I'm going to call them back into session and say stay there until you get something done for a change.

GLENN: Look over the horizon for me. Tell me if America doesn't change its energy policies now and at least engage in transitional drilling for a very long time. Look over the horizon. What does America look like, what does Russia look like, what role does everybody play if we follow a plan of not drilling and not going for any kind of oil or our own energy and nuke power?

SENATOR McCAIN: First let me comment, what do you think Saddam Hussein would be doing if oil were $125 or $130 or $140 a barrel, by the way? I think America looks more and more dependent, I think Russia becomes more and more aggressive in the, quote, near abroad. Georgia, Ukraine, the Baltic countries and others. Notice that they cut the oil flow to the Republic, Czech Republic after they made an agreement with us on missile defense. There's no doubt that these countries are not only emboldened but they are able to engage in more aggressive activity. And finally, to state the obvious, $700 billion a year to countries that don't like us very much. And it's a fact that some of that money goes into the hands of terrorist organizations. I mean, that's published, published facts. So it's an economic, it's climate, environmental and it is a national security issue. Americans are ready to go on this, Glenn. Thanks for all you've been talking about. Americans are ready to drill offshore, they're ready for nuclear power. Why should it take the French five years to build a nuclear power plant and us ten, fifteen, twenty? There's no excuse for that.

GLENN: Will you consider Paris Hilton as your vice president?

SENATOR McCAIN: I think that she's got you've got a great sense of humor. I think it's hilarious. I think it's hilarious.

GLENN: John McCain, hold on just a second. Thank you for being on the program. Back in a flash.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
