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.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
