Glenn Beck talks to Senator Saxby Chambliss


Saxby Chambliss


US Senator for Georgia

GLENN: Okay, now, we have Saxby Chambliss on the phone, the senator who is going to stand against the rising storm that is coming America's way. Senator, how are you, sir?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Well, we're still bouncing off the walls, Glenn. What a great victory we had and thanks for your encouragement, your support and it was a great night last night, needless to say.

GLENN: Senator, I tell you, you know, everybody says that conservatives, you know, that movement is dead when Barack Obama wins by a couple of points but when you run against a straight-up progressive and you win by 14 points, I don't hear anybody saying this is a rejection of progressive ideas.

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Kind of amazing, isn't it? Our campaign was focused, Glenn, around the basic core principles that Ronald Reagan taught us. We talked about lower taxes versus the guy who wants to raise taxes and has a history of doing so about somebody who wants to decrease the size of government versus somebody who's going to support all of Obama's initiatives that wants to grow the size of government. All of those basic rights that we have like Second Amendment rights that have the potential to be infringed on. When we talk about these issues, it really resonated with people all across Georgia. We had a great turnout and a big victory on basic conservative principles, and I hope we take something away as a party from this particular runoff.

GLENN: I don't -- you know, that leads me to my question because I don't think that the party gets it yet. I really don't. I mean, they are a party that tries to distance themselves from Sarah Palin. You saw how popular she is down in your state.

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: She is electric. She brought just all kinds of people to us, you know, whether it was Joe the plumber types or folks sitting in their coats and ties. She just packed every house we were in. On Monday we had four different stops around the state and when she walks in the room, there's an electricity you just can't believe.

GLENN: Yeah. Do you think the Republicans are going to get it? I mean, I heard you say yesterday, you said, "I'm going to be the 41st senator to stand up against, you know, gun rights being taken away," et cetera, et cetera. Do you really think we've got 40 other Republicans, Senator? I'm just so afraid. I mean, if you are a student of history, I'm sure you are, you know that during the Great Depression when going tough and they were promising free bread and free everything to people, I mean, the Republican party was called the "Me too" party because there were a lot of people that just defected and said, "Yeah, yeah, me, too, I'll do that, too." I mean, do you think you are going to be able to hold 40 together on some of the big issues of the day?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: You know, Glenn, I think that having 41 and hopefully we're going to have 42 if my buddy Norm comes through but having that tighter margin I think is going to give us an opportunity to go to some of our moderates who have not always voted with conservatives and say, look, you know, this is the opportunity we have to define our party, this is the opportunity we have to ultimately move back in the majority. If we don't stick together, then it's over. Our movement's going to be delayed and delayed. But if we do stick together and then what you're going to find in your state where you're elected as a moderate, you are going to find folks rallying around you. Whether we can do that and sell that to them, I don't know. But I think it does give us the opportunity to do that.

GLENN: I was just reading a statement from Citigroup today. It was an internal statement that came out about the price of gold and what's happening in the rest of the world and they're saying now that governments are throwing the kitchen sink at this and the gamble is going to likely end in one of two extreme ways: Either resurgence of inflation -- and I believe they are talking about massive, massive inflation, possibly hyperinflation -- or a downward spiral into Depression, civil disorder, and possibly wars. They are talking in this internal memo that the world will not go back to normal after -- and I'm quoting -- after the magnitude of what has been done. When the dust settles, this will either work and the money they have pushed into the system will feed through in inflation shock or it will not work because too much damage has already been done. They talk in this internal memo from Citigroup about how AAA-rated countries, people are starting to doubt the sovereign debts. We're a AAA rated country. They are talking about China moving their reserves from 600 tons of gold to near 4,000 tons of gold which means they are going to -- quoting the article -- they will have to diversify away from paper currencies, which is us. Senator, how much trouble is this country in?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Well, there's no question but what we are in a huge financial crisis, Glenn. I think we've known that.

GLENN: Is it becoming clearer to you or is it becoming clearer to the American people that this is not -- I keep hearing people on CNBC and everything else saying, "Well, we'll probably roll out of this by the end of next year or maybe into the..." they just are the same people that just admitted that we've been in a recession for over a year. Do you think people are starting to get a handle on how enormous this thing is?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Yeah, I really do think they are. I mean, when you look at the automobile industry, what they are asking for, when you look at cities and counties around the country coming forward now and asking for what they're asking for, who's next? I mean, the folks in the small town America, the small business community knows and understands how tough it is out there and, you know, they can't come forward and ask for a handout, but they know it's tough. And when they see the big boys doing this and they realize what's going on in their world, then I think reality is starting to set in that this situation is not just about Wall Street, it's not just about Main Street, it's about the whole world.

GLENN: But see, that's -- but we're getting to a point to where people are going to say, "Well, what about me?" And half of the population is going to mean that, meaning "I want my free stuff" and the other half of the population is going to be screaming, "Don't you dare give any more free stuff; I want my money to be worth something." Who wins in that debate with the makeup of congress in the White House?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Well, obviously this next administration's going to have a lot of challenges but the first one is going to be to figure out what direction we go in from the standpoint of how we address this crisis. Do we go in a direction of providing more free handouts or do we give the free market an opportunity to work. That's going to be the first decision they are going to make and if they decide anything other than letting the free market work, then Glenn, I'd say we're in a real mess for maybe a decade to come. And even with the free market working, it's going to be very tough.

GLENN: Senator, I'm up against a break. Thank you and congratulations. We're counting on you, Senator.

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Glenn, I appreciate you.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
