Glenn talks with Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks


Give Us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto


by Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe

GLENN: I happened to see Matt Kibbe in the hallway. Matt Kibbe is with Freedom Works. He's a sponsor of this program. And before I went on the air, I saw him and I said, Matt, this is what I heard this weekend, that people are saying to me: I'm not sure I'm going to go out and vote, and I couldn't believe it. I thought I was being punked. And I said, is that the feeling that you're getting at all from around the country? And Matt, tell me what you said about West Virginia and I think it was Ohio. Tell me what you're's sensing in West Virginia?

KIBBE: Well, I was in West Virginia on Friday night and there is a level of energy and excitement there that is shaking up both the Republican and the Democratic establishment in that state. There's a Senate candidate, John Raese, who has openly, enthusiastically embraced the Tea Party agenda of fiscal responsibility of allowing coal miners to actually produce energy for America, and there's an understanding in a state where for a hundred years, for generations Democrats have controlled everything. But there's an understanding that this administration, that this majority leader, that this House speaker all want to destroy West Virginia. And the Republicans aren't necessarily comfortable with the Tea Party coming in and the Democrats obviously aren't, but there's this energy. There's this unity around the ideas.

GLENN: Is he a third party candidate or is he he's a Republican candidate?

KIBBE: He's a Republican.

GLENN: And everybody in the Republicans, this is another case where the Republicans really don't want this guy?

KIBBE: Well, they've had to come they've had to come to terms with the fact, and there was a grudging respect for John, there was a grudging respect for the Tea Party folks. I spoke at the Republican dinner on Friday night, and everybody now understands that to the extent the Republican Party matters in West Virginia, it's because the Tea Party has taken it over, the Tea Party is the energy, and the Tea Party is for true fiscal conservatism.

GLENN: So Matt, what are you doing, what are you doing because I'm working on something and maybe we should work together on this. I am working almost for like an abuse hotline, you know, where if you're being abused by a spouse, you can call. I think that there needs to be an abuse hotline for the members of congress that are going in. Because they're going to be co everything's going to come down on them like a bag of bricks as soon as they walk through that door. The Republicans who are the progressive Republicans are going to say, "Well, now look, now look, son, here's how it really works around here. You don't know. Let me show you the ropes," and they're going to get some of them are going to be duped by it and others are going to feel very, very alone.

KIBBE: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Are you working on anything for after the election like that to be able to make sure that these candidates who go in are not co opted?

KIBBE: We are. And, you know, there's two things I think that make the promise of what these folks are do together so compelling is that they should act as a block. You have this massive Freshman Republican class that will come in. Maybe it's 50, 60, 70 in the House, maybe it's eight, ten, twelve in the Senate, most of whom

GLENN: You really give me the real numbers of what you think.

KIBBE: Oh, I think if I were to bet my money today, I would say 65 in the House and nine or ten in the Senate. And obviously the nine or the ten matters a lot.

PAT: Wow. It's a tie at ten.

KIBBE: Yeah.

PAT: Right?

KIBBE: Yeah. And I can get to twelve, and I do think that there's this

GLENN: Who are the most important, who are the most important, the strongest candidates you think nationwide, the ones that you're like, got to have this guy? Got to have this guy? This guy could turn things, this guy could be a real influencer in the rest of the House or Senate?

KIBBE: Well, I think number one right now is John Raese in West Virginia. Because that is the Byrd seat. This is a lot like taking Ted Kennedy's seat and winning it with Scott Brown. So if I think if we win the Robert Byrd seat in West Virginia, that's a big election. Obviously Marco Rubio is a compelling candidate that I would argue might in fact, he will come into the Senate with more experience than Barack Obama had as a leader.

GLENN: He's fought a really good race.

KIBBE: Yeah.

GLENN: And been a tough race.

KIBBE: Yeah.

GLENN: For a long time. It doesn't seem like Marco Rubio I mean, look what it takes to run. This is ridiculous. This is ridiculous that it takes this much energy and time and money. It's ridiculous. Who has that?

KIBBE: Yeah.

GLENN: Who could put their life on hold for two years to run for a stupid seat that you should, you know, you shouldn't hold for more than one term, maybe two? I mean, that's who are these people that can do that? I couldn't. Could you do that? Just leave your whole life, turn it upside down for two years? Who could do it?

Tell me what you know about Whitman. We were talking about Meg Whitman here a minute ago, that, is she I mean, she's not Jerry Brown.

KIBBE: Right.

GLENN: So that's the first thing. Because Jerry Brown I mean, I can't believe that we had I talked to somebody yesterday at church and they happened to be up in the New England area and she came up to me and she said, oh, my gosh, I can't believe that you go to church here. And I said, yes, hi, how are you? And she said, I am a organizer for colleges. And I said, ooh, that's got to hurt. And she said, it's been actually really good, except for New England. She said, I was approached in New England by a group of students who said, we're communists, we're proud of it, and what are you going to do about it? She said New England is almost lost. She said it's not for Republicans or for the Tea Party. She said it's almost, the colleges are just going so far left that it's remarkable. Have you noticed, what are you seeing on the ground on youth? Is Freedom Works involved in that?

KIBBE: Oh, absolutely. And I you know, one of the misnomers of the Tea Party community is that it's all seniors. I see kids that are 18, 19, 20 who have found a community finally. They don't find it on their campus, they don't find it at their school, but they've found it in the Tea Party where there are people like them that believe in freedom, they believe in the Constitution, and I think there's a rebirth going on amongst our youth as well as all across the age spectrum. So I think there's something compelling going on there, and it's like all this stuff. These folks need a home. They need to know that they're not alone in this fight. And so in a sense when you go to a Tea Party rally, it's a support group.

GLENN: Yeah. Really is. Everybody's like, hi, my name is Glenn. I used to believe in the political system. Keep working the program, Glenn. Keep working the program. (Applause). All right, Matt, thanks a lot.

KIBBE: Thanks a lot.

GLENN: Keep up the good work. Matt Kibbe from Freedom Works.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
