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.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
