Glenn Beck: Stopping the Libs

GLENN: All right. As you know, I've asked you to get involved locally with candidates that you can believe in. We have asked you to find, seek out those people that you can believe in. Seek out those people who will have a spine that will stand up against what is possibly coming our way with Reid and Obama and Nancy Pelosi. They are trying to go for a filibuster-proof Senate, which is just beyond my comprehension. Senator John Cornyn is one of those senators that is up for reelection now, a guy who has been a friend of the program, a guy who has been working hard on many of the issues that you care about. Senator, how are you, sir?

SENATOR CORNYN: I'm doing great, Glenn. Thanks.

GLENN: What does America --

SENATOR CORNYN: How are you doing?

GLENN: What does America look like in February of next year if there is a filibuster-proof Senate and Barack Obama as President of the United States?

SENATOR CORNYN: Well, it's going to be a very rocky time for conservatives like you and me and those who believe like I think most of America believes, that we're really a center-right country but because of this unusual time we're in, we'll, if that happens, have elected the senator with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate and an unchecked Democratic majority that can confirm whatever judges Obama nominates that can eliminate the secret ballot for workers in union elections and who can raise taxes to pay for the $1.4 trillion or more of additional spending that Obama advocates.

GLENN: Jeez. All right, you're on the judiciary committee. So let me ask you this first question. When a judge takes the oath of office, does he not swear that he will administer justice without respect to persons and do equal right to the poor and the rich?

SENATOR CORNYN: Okay.

GLENN: Okay. In 2007 Barack Obama said Planned Parenthood: "We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old and that is the criteria on which I'm going to be selecting my judges." If that's the criteria, wouldn't those judges violate their oath just by trying to adhere to what he was asking them to do?

SENATOR CORNYN: Exactly. I mean, what Obama's suggesting is that the job of an elected representative -- and I think it's entirely appropriate for elected representatives to debate those issues and to vote according to the wishes of their constituents and their conscience, but a judge is not free to impose any political or personal agenda in lieu of the law as passed by the legislature in our written Constitution.

GLENN: You're on the subcommittee of the Constitution. With what you have seen Barack Obama, just say in the last few days, the tape that was released yesterday about, you know, finally unleashing and unshackling us from the -- what did he call them? The principles of the Constitution, from our founding fathers? What do you even think about what his view is of the Constitution? And Senator, what does it mean?

SENATOR CORNYN: Well, what struck me is when he said that the Warren court who is widely acknowledged even among liberals to be among the most activist in American history, he said really wasn't out of the mainstream. So it makes me wonder what he thinks the mainstream is, and from the other comments that you quoted and that interview, I think it's clear that he takes a position that the courts should be in the business of imposing a left agenda for America, regardless of what the written laws and the Constitution say which to me is the definition of a law-breaker, not somebody who is sworn to uphold the law as written by the congress and as found in our written -- the founding documents.

GLENN: Senator Cornyn, let me just go through a couple of things here with you as you're running for reelection. There are very few people that we can really, truly count on, it seems at least, that will stand up, that won't become a Me Too Republican, that will actually stand up and let their voice be heard in a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington sort of way. Is there any way that you would ever support the repeal or the limiting of the Second Amendment?

SENATOR CORNYN: Absolutely not.

GLENN: Is there any way that you could see your way of saying some place like the New York Times or anyone in the media is just too big to fail or too important to fail and try to bail them out?

SENATOR CORNYN: Absolutely not.

GLENN: Is there any way you could see yourself Cushing freedom of speech through things like the Fairness Doctrine?

SENATOR CORNYN: No.

GLENN: Do you believe that you have the backbone, will you stand in front of 8 million people today and say "I have the backbone to stand up. I am a conservative. I'm not a wishy-washy. I'm a guy who believes in the people of America and not the government of America and you'll fight it with every breath you got"?

SENATOR CORNYN: Well, that's what I try to do each and every day when I go to work representing the people of Texas and the values, the conservative values that my constituents believe in. It's -- one of the shocking things to me about Washington is how few people really are willing to stand up and explain, and I think that's part of leadership, to explain why a various issue, why you come down on one side or the other of the various issues because of the principles that you believe in.

GLENN: Right.

SENATOR CORNYN: And in the absence of that willingness to advocate based on conservative principles, you are left with a void filled by the mainstream media, New York Times, Washington Post and others that is unrebutted and that's not good for America. That's not good for our country.

GLENN: Senator John Cornyn, what is the biggest difference between you and the person running against you?

SENATOR CORNYN: Well, the person running against me believes we should have left Iraq according to a political timetable, unwilling to acknowledge the success of the surge and the importance of having a Democratic country that's ally in the war on terror in the Middle East. He's advocated $1.4 trillion worth of additional federal spending but is unwilling to say how he would pay for it, is unwilling to extend the tax relief that we passed in 2001 and 2003 which has created a huge economic surge including seven million new jobs. And I could go on and on.

GLENN: You would think that the people in Texas would get taxes. I mean, why is Texas growing the way it is? Because they have no tax. You would think that of all places.

SENATOR CORNYN: Well, you are right. The reason Texas is growing is because we believe in free trade, we believe in the right to work, we believe in low taxes, including no state income tax, and we believe in common sense tort reform. Those have been the keys to our prosperity here in Texas. Really we've seen 30% of all jobs created in the private sector last year were created in Texas because of those policies. So we need to make Washington more like Texas in my view. Because we know the policies that work and those are the policies that conservatives embrace.

GLENN: Senator John Cornyn, we need your voice in Washington and I wish you the best, my friend.

SENATOR CORNYN: Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: You bet. Bye-bye.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn's message for all the Trump-haters who have forgotten Trump's accomplishments, or you can read Glenn's list HERE:

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
