Glenn Beck: The next Chris Christie?



Learn more about Tom Tancredo

GLENN: All right. Tom, I was just in Colorado last night, and I heard the happiest news ever. There are people that actually believe, and I am so happily in this camp, that you could be the next governor of Colorado. What a message that would send to America. Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: It really is incredible. We have come out, I think about 30, over 30 points in a little over three and a half weeks.

PAT: Wow.

TANCREDO: That's got to be some sort of record. I know it's never happened in any race I've ever seen before. And it's the result of a lot of things coming together, of course, but it is a really exciting time. I'm not kidding you. The enthusiasm, my gosh, everywhere I go, the crowds just keep getting bigger and bigger.

GLENN: The enthusiasm last night, I was giving a speech last night and the enthusiasm when I said your name on stage, I said I think it was the first thing I came out, I said Colorado, Tom Tancredo? And they went crazy. And I said, oh, it will drive the rest of the country and the left out of their mind! I'll move here if you'll do that! Help, how can I help?

TANCREDO: That would cinch the deal. That would cinch the deal.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I mean, you know, I would feel so comfortable with state rights and that the I'm worried about many of these governors who don't really get it, and I'm not sure even if they do get it that they will stand in the end.

TANCREDO: Do anything about it.

GLENN: Yeah.

TANCREDO: I keep saying that, you know, I said the first thing I'll do, but I said that there are so many first things that you have to do that I'm now down to saying, you know, one of the first things I will do.

GLENN: Right.

TANCREDO: Is to pick up the phone and call Chris Christie and then, you know, put him on hold and try to use my, what little talent I have technologically speaking to connect us to Jan Brewer and do a little conference call and say and maybe there will be one or two other governors at that time that would have the guts to join me, but what I'm asking them to do, what I will ask them to do is to join me in launching a Tenth Amendment revolution in this country.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. You know who you really

TANCREDO: And if we do this together, you know I mean, alone probably you don't get far. But if you can get a few governors together to really band together and make a line in the sand and say, you know, you're not coming any farther, federal government. This is the State of Colorado, Arizona, New Jersey, there is nothing more that we need from you or want from you. And as a matter of fact, you can take your stimulus money and go pound sand with it.

GLENN: Oh, I love this. I love this. I will tell you, Tom, I mean this sincerely, I am looking for a place to relocate at least myself, and my company will remain here in New York, but I'm re Jeffy, you can come well, no, you can't come with, but you can relocate. I'll relocate you... well, you should be relocated to prison is where you should be relocated, but

TANCREDO: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, I'm telling you it is going to be Texas and the mountain west that save this country. It really will be.

TANCREDO: Well, let me tell you about the values system at least as it is viewed by the gentleman I am running against, Mayor Hickenlooper he said I don't know if you guys have seen this or not. He said and they came up on YouTube just a couple of days ago. But he goes he's talking to a lady at something called well, gosh. I'll trying to think of the name of the institute now. Shepherd. Because it was created as a result of the young man that was killed in Wyoming because he was gay, and you remember that a while back? Matthew shepherd?

GLENN: Yes.

TANCREDO: Well, they created this entity, this out here in Colorado, Matthew Shepard Foundation or something like that for gay and transvestite and transgendered and he was talking to a lady who was the head of that organization and he said, we have that same kind of backward thinking here in rural Colorado, Wyoming, Montana. You know how these people are.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: Yes, yes. Yes, he is and it's in the context of this murder, a horrible crime. He's suggesting that the people in Colorado and in the West Virginia values system, of course, that leads to this kind of thing and that we're all just kind of waiting to catch the next young gay guy out there and beat him to death or torture him or something like that.

GLENN: You know, Tom

TANCREDO: He said that on this clip, it's just absolutely amazing. The backward thinking, backward thinking.

GLENN: You almost we're downloading apparently this clip now. When you have that clip, let me play it here. You know, Tom, what people don't understand is the left has such contempt for most of America. They have contempt. When the president yesterday said or the day before yesterday said that to the Hispanic audience that he was speaking to, he said, and you have to know, you have to get out so we can punish our enemies. Our enemies. We're not talking about we have disagreements of opinion. We're talking about our enemies. And they have such contempt. They are quite frightening.

TANCREDO: Don't you remember that he said Obama really said almost something very similar to what Hickenlooper said when he said, you know, when it gets tough out there, the rough economy, these people start to grab for their guns and Bible. They hang onto their guns and Bible, you know? Remember that?

GLENN: Yeah, the bitter white people that hang onto their God and their guns, yeah.

TANCREDO: Yeah. And then just another reflection of what you're saying, it just hit me while you were talking about their attitude. Do you remember the scene I've got pictures. People sent me some pictures of the White House Christmas tree in this last this last Christmas.

GLENN: With Mao.

TANCREDO: Remember first of all that Mrs. Obama was trying to stop any sort of anything that would be a reference to Christianity being part of the Christmas decorations in the White House. And they've finally they decided, well, that would cause too much of an uproar. So they put a few out. But on the Christmas tree, the decorations, the Christmas, the balls that hang on the tree.

GLENN: Sure, yeah.

TANCREDO: One of them was Mao Zedong and the other was a lady a person, I don't know what you call, but it's a famous transvestite named Heada Lettuce. Those were the Christmas decorations in the White House. What does this tell you about their attitude?

GLENN: I don't know. I want to know more about Head of Lettuce.

TANCREDO: Heada Lettuce.

GLENN: I never heard of Heada Lettuce.

TANCREDA: I haven't heard she's a very famous transvestite.

GLENN: Okay, I'll take your word for that.

TANCREDO: You've got to keep up on your transvestite

GLENN: I know, I think we should have a radio show, we should name somebody Heada Lettuce. I think that's one of the greatest names of all time, Heada Lettuce. I like that. I like her, him or whatever. I don't know anything about him.

TANCREDO: I don't know exactly how to genderize it but, yeah, Heada Lettuce.

GLENN: I like that. So Tom, what is it that you are besides the Tenth Amendment, what is it that is connecting in Colorado? What is the thing?

TANCREDO: Well, there is this little issue. It is called illegal immigration.

GLENN: Yeah. You've been on the forefront of that.

TANCREDO: Yeah.

GLENN: Forever.

TANCREDO: Mayor Hickenlooper runs a sanctuary city where among the many horrible crimes that have been committed by illegal aliens who then go out and break other crimes but are never turned over to ICE is one that has just honestly captured the imagination and the hearts of the people in this state. A while back a young man this just epitomizes, okay? What I'm going to describe to you is one event but it is the epitome of a sanctuary city and the one the mayor runs.

A little boy by the name of Marten Kudlis and his mother were at a Baskin and Robbins ice cream store in Aurora, Colorado. She tells him to go sit down, be a good boy, and that she will get him his ice cream cone. He sits down, she goes over to the counter. A guy, an illegal alien crashes into a pickup truck that was pulling into the Baskin and Robbins place, kills the two people in that truck, then careens into the front of the Baskin and Robbins store and kills this little boy, Marten Kudlis. By the way, the Kudlis family, they're legal immigrants here in the United States and in Colorado. They now, it's a horrible story. It's a terrible, terrible tragedy, but what makes it even more terrible is that the guy who did it had been arrested sixteen times.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: In and around the City of Denver and the surrounding area. Never once, never once turned over to ICE as an illegal alien, never once. So that is the kind of thing that people just go crazy about, as well they should. This man, Mr. Kudlis, asked he said to me, what can I do? You know, he wanted to make it he's got a commercial up for me. It's just, every time I see it, it breaks my heart. But that certainly is another part of this. Because Hickenlooper would turn the state into a sanctuary state, and I keep saying I'm going to try my best to make Colorado a business friendly and an illegal immigrant unfriendly place to be, and I certainly will do that.

GLENN: I can't even imagine, I can't even imagine

TANCREDO: No.

GLENN: a week from today if you win, I cannot even imagine the message that that would send. This, to me, this race is one of the biggest, most important messages to be sent. Because Colorado is a state that was, was red. They flipped it blue. Very blue. And they have organized this state six ways to Sunday.

TANCREDO: Oh, man, yeah.

GLENN: This is the state, Colorado is the state that was the prototype for all other organizations

TANCREDO: That's right.

GLENN: For all other states.

TANCREDO: That's right.

GLENN: This is the key state for them. They changed they flipped Colorado and said we can flip the whole country because look what we've done to Colorado. And for it to go for not a Republican but for Tom Tancredo running as an independent? That's incredible. Incredible.

TANCREDO: Republicans are down to 5% in the most recent polls.

GLENN: Let me ask you this. Why didn't the Republicans I mean, you were a Republican. You weren't a popular Republican in the Republican Party, but

TANCREDO: Yeah.

GLENN: You would think at some point they would say, let's have the state go to Tom.

TANCREDO: Well, believe me they are trying everything they can. I mean, the head of the Republican Party here calls their candidate the worst candidate that's been by the Republican Party.

GLENN: Oh, okay, good.

TANCREDO: They are trying

GLENN: I'm glad to hear that.

TANCREDO: He won't get out. He is mad at me, he's mad at the party.

GLENN: No, that's just fine.

TANCREDO: He is just an angry guy. So he is sticking in there. And that could be the problem for us.

GLENN: I'm glad to actually hear that.

TANCREDO: We are in striking distance, we are in the margin of error in almost every poll that's out there. We are within 2 or 3 points and the momentum is on our side. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: There is I'm not kidding you, buddy. We could get this done. It's amazing.

GLENN: That's great. Tom Tancredo, thank you very much. Best of luck to you.

TANCREDO: Tancredoforgovernor.org.

GLENN: You got it. Thanks a lot, Tom. Tom Tancredo from Colorado.


 

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
