Glenn's interview with Ann Coulter


Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America


By Ann Coulter

GLENN: Let's go to Ann Coulter who is with us now. Hello, Ann, welcome to the program.

COULTER: Nice to be here, Glenn.

GLENN: Where are you?

COULTER: In the nation's capital.

GLENN: Oh, I'm sorry for that.

COULTER: With so much, so much hard work that's done. In Washington, the safe streets program from Washington because I thought all these government bureaucrats, if they had actual jobs, they would just screw everything up. But now since they are the only ones with jobs, I'm feeling a little resentful.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, you know, at least you I know that they are now talking about taking the New York Times list and splitting the conservative books off onto their own list because apparently nobody else can compete with us. But

COULTER: It is really something. And it's been that way going back to my second book, Slander. I have a chapter on the publishing industry and books, and it has been that way for a long time.

GLENN: Yeah.

COULTER: The difference is now it's not as hard for us to find publishers.

GLENN: Yeah, we sell books

COULTER: Leo Moore's book on Chappaquiddick, no one would publish that book.

GLENN: Now they're I saw today on television they are standing in front of this 1500 person line to see Sarah Palin. And television, they're just like, "I mean, there's 1500 people in line!" They can't get their arms around this.

COULTER: Well, you know, one thing the media did not report during the campaign and I know, hold onto your hats, the media didn't report something, was that often Sarah Palin would show up at the same venue where Obama had just spoken and she would get twice as big a crowd, you know. We kept hearing about the fainting crowds wherever Obama would go. No, no, no. Sarah Palin was more of a draw, which is probably why Senator McCain got a little bitter and resentful and the McCain camp started sniping at her, but I guess she is getting her payback now.

GLENN: Have you read her book?

COULTER: I've only read the first 30 pages. I haven't gotten to the part I'm dying to get to, which is the payback to the McCain camp, and I'm really looking forward to that, if anyone ever deserved to do it. I mean, everyone says, oh, isn't this mean of her? What, she can't respond? I mean, Obama's autobiography he attacks me by name. I didn't even know who he was. It's not like he was responding. In this case she didn't start it.

GLENN: Ann, you know, it's popular now to say that people like me or Sarah Palin are going to destroy the Republican Party, and I have to tell ya if standing up for principles, standing up for small government, standing up for an end of corruption, standing up for accountability destroys a party, it should be destroyed.

COULTER: Don't worry, Glenn, you are not going to destroy it. You are making it stronger. I know you like to say you are not a Republican or a Democrat but when you have, you know, what was it, more than 200 Democrats voting for the cap and tax bill and only seven Republicans voting for it, there is a difference in the parties.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, no, hang on just a second. When I say that I mean I'll vote, I'll generally vote Republican. But I vote for anybody that will reflect my values and do the right thing.

COULTER: Right. Unless you are in Connecticut voting for Lieberman.

GLENN: I mean, jeez, for the

COULTER: You are voting respect can, baby cakes.

GLENN: It's a

COULTER: Oh, you are in Connecticut.

GLENN: Yeah, I am.

COULTER: My hometown.

GLENN: I do vote for you just called me baby cakes. We should write that down. And, you know, I just

COULTER: But if I could just, in defense of you, Sarah Palin and all patriotic Americans, remember, you know, when they start saying, oh, these people are going to rip, these conservatives, they are going to rip the Republican Party apart, remember how they thought John McCain was going to bring it together and attract all those independents and they said the same thing about Bob Dole and the same thing about George Bush, Sr.. curiously the mainstream media does not seem to have the Republican Party's best interests in mind when it tells us who the good candidates are and who the bad candidates are.

GLENN: Well, I don't think they necessarily do it with any malicious intent. Maybe they do. But let's not assign malicious intent. They just have no idea. I remember, and I've told this story before and I don't mean to throw the person under the bus that did it because they really tried and worked hard. But I remember when I was over at CNN and I asked one of the writers, can you write a tribute to Ronald Reagan. Well, this was a flaming liberal and worked their heart out trying to get it right. I read it and it was ridiculous. They had no idea. And they really tried and they were like, huh, huh? It's good, right? It works? They had no clue as to why people

COULTER: That's probably why they submit it to the New York Times for their obituary because that obituary had no clue. It was, I thought a guy named Iran Contra had died.

GLENN: (Laughing). So your number one best selling book, Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America just released in paperback. Boy, I've got to tell you the conservatives of this country are going to save the publishing industry, and I mean that sincerely, save the publishing industry from complete ruin this year.

COULTER: Right.

GLENN: I mean

COULTER: Right. It really is stunning, and as I say, it has been like this for a long, long time. What's curious is that even, even with the basically, you know, half century success, run away success of look, conservatives read; liberals don't. This explains a lot of the difference in our positions. I mean, you'll notice this

GLENN: You don't know if that's true.

COULTER: No, really you will notice this. You could meet a hot dog vendor, a truckdriver, a busy executive, a hedge fund manager. If they are conservative, within, you know, two seconds they will start listing off all the books they have just read. Conservatives read a lot. That's why they are conservative. They are not accepting what they are getting, you know, directly spoon fed to them from the mainstream media. But even with the success, I mean, it's much like Fox. Instead of imitating the successful program, you know, Steve Jobs comes out with the iPhone. Everybody goes to work to try to imitate it. Do other networks like the failing CNN try to imitate Fox News? Do the other publishing houses try to imitate? Well, they are actually a little bit more. Only in the past I'd say seven years.

GLENN: They are getting stronger and stronger now.

COULTER: Yes, it's not as hard to get published.

GLENN: When I first joined Simon and Schuster, who is your publishing house?

COULTER: Crown Forum, part of Random House.

GLENN: When I first joined Simon and Schuster, the publishing imprint that I went under was really kind of the pariah, it was kind of the, you know, out in the outer spheres. They were like, I don't know, we'll try this crazy conservative thing. Now my imprint which is with Simon and Schuster, the Mercury label is we're in all divisions. We sit down with everybody and they really get it and they are really embracing and they are seeing, which I don't think they really saw, you know, five years ago and we were just a small part of this. But I don't think they really saw the conservative market or the rest of the country outside of the island of Manhattan as book readers and buyers

COULTER: Right

GLENN: And now they do.

COULTER: Right, right. In my case it's kind of an interesting story. I mean, after my first book, high crimes and misdemeanors, which was a best seller published by Regnery, normally the expression in the publishing industry is you don't make money on your first best seller. You make money on the advance to the next book. Not if you're conservative. You have trouble even getting the next book published. But thank you, Steve Ross, at Crown, part of Random House. Nobody would publish the book. I had a contract with Harper Collins. They killed it. My agents shopped it around and finally Steve Ross, you know, he cared about selling books. He also published Obama's book, by the way. He has a nonideological eye for what will sell and that always helps conservatives. And he saw it was already selling on Amazon. It's still sitting on my computer. There was no book and it was selling on Amazon. And he picked it up and it was the number one book all summer. So God bless you, Steve Ross.

GLENN: Let me change topics here. There is a disconnect I think with President Obama and we were just talking about this, Pat. Help me explain this. We were just talking about this off the air that there is a and I sensed this prior to, I remember doing a monologue or two over at CNN that said if this guy is not what he claims he is, he is in deep, deep trouble. He is now, we are, you know, the million jobs saved or created, that's coming undone. Our deficit has just clicked past $12 trillion, projected to be $14.4 trillion next year. While he is saying if this deficit continues to grow, the world will lose faith in the dollar and we can't let that happen. They are talking about another stimulus package. He's double speak city. And it's you know what frightens me, Ann, is you don't get away with that for very long. These people have not designed a long term strategy. This is a very short term strategy which means you either lose it in the end or you have another exit strategy.

COULTER: Right, right. It will be curious to see what happens because it does seem as if we are headed for disaster on every front, both in national defense and on the economy. I mean, speaking from Washington here, well, the one place where people are still hiring is in the government. I really think they have no sense of what's going on in America where people are losing jobs, losing jobs, it's just numbers on a page here as long as the Department of Health and Human Services is still hiring. But, you know, a quarter million people lost their jobs last month. Now admittedly most of them were White House czars but still that's very, very bad.

GLENN: You're welcome.

COULTER: And instead, you know, dealing with the jobs situation what Obama wants to do is redo our entire healthcare system. Well, that's running up against a brick wall not only with public opinion in America but with our creditor.

GLENN: China.

COULTER: The Chinese who aren't wild about the profligate spending of the country they are lending to. If they stop buying American treasuries, the whole thing finally blows up. And that is a big problem, which is why there has to be, there has to be. This is a very important point. There has to be rationing of healthcare. That is the only way the Obama administration can sell healthcare reform to the Chinese. And they are the ones who have to approve now or the whole deficit comes undone.

GLENN: So do you believe that that is because I'm doing a couple of segments tonight on rationing of healthcare that it's already here and it's mammograms. Do you believe that is a sign of the things to come, that this is I mean, really? All of a sudden we decide, you don't need to they are even saying don't even do self exams now.

COULTER: I know.

GLENN: What are you talking about? How much money did we spend on teaching people how to do self exams and how many commercials have we done and how many I mean, teach it, teach it, teach it, self exam, self exam, get it by 40. And now they are saying, whatever, so you've got to so it looks like you've got a third breast now; check it in ten years.

COULTER: Well, it certainly raises those concerns. I don't know if that's what's going on here. I mean, I've heard this before from other people that you can I mean, it's been sort of trickling out before it became official government policy. And by the way, if you wait until it's, you know, full blown cancer, it can end up being more expensive. But there is absolutely no question that there is going to be massive rationing and this is what happens when you have a few smart guys and commissions in Washington deciding how healthcare will be run, how the economy will be run, how you will how your pension will be provided for. Interestingly enough those things work out more smoothly and efficiently when you have 300 million people making individual decisions for themselves. Something known as freedom. But this is the history of liberalism, replacing things that work with things that sounded good on paper. Though I am concerned this week, by the way, Glenn, the poll numbers are looking pretty close on healthcare. The opposition to healthcare in the polls among American voters has been going down or the opposition has been going up, the support has been going down. Suddenly in this last week the polls are neck and neck, and that's all the Democrats need. I mean, they do have a majority in the House, they have a majority in the Senate and they have the presidency. So the good money says some heinous healthcare program will pass.

GLENN: No, it will.

COULTER: And the only thing that can stop it is going to be the American people. The same way the American people stopped the amnesty for illegals.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. One more thing. I just got some breaking, some breaking news. Wanted to get this in right away. The president has just announced that he is, quote, very close to a decision on I'm quoting, very close, quoting, very close to a decision to address the levels in Afghanistan and will make an announcement, quote, in the next several weeks. End quote.

COULTER: This is such a disaster. I mean, we've been running down healthcare, oh, wah, it's just one this was the war he campaigned on saying this was the war of necessity and now we don't even know if he will make a decision on more troops by the end of his administration.

GLENN: No, no. In the next several weeks. He's rushing, but in a very slow, almost crazily slow sort of fashion.

COULTER: Almost.

GLENN: Yeah, almost. Almost like there's another agenda, you know. I don't know. All right, Ann Coulter. Her book is now out in bookstores everywhere, Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America. Always a pressure to talk to you, Ann.

COULTER: Great to talk to you, Glenn, bye bye.

PAT: It's in paperback, by the way.

GLENN: Did I say paperback?

PAT: It's been out for a while. It's out in paperback.

GLENN: Thank you, Pat.

PAT: Sure. Always happy to help.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
