Sarah Palin asked to denounce Glenn


TheBlaze:



Media Matters Bizarre Hail Mary: We Can’t Stop Beck with Ad Boycotts,

Sarah Please Help Us

GLENN: Let me bring Sarah up. Is Sarah on the phone? Hi, Sarah, how are you?

SARAH PALIN: Hey, good morning, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Good, where are you?

SARAH PALIN: I am at my kitchen table in Wasilla.

GLENN: I don't know how you travel. I mean, it's crazy the amount of travel that

you do.

SARAH PALIN: How do I travel? Yes, airplanes.

GLENN: I don't okay, I don't think you need to I mean, I really, what, are you

all of a sudden Bill Maher talking down to me. Okay, Sarah, I want you to hear

this. This is the head of Media Matters, and I just, I want to give you the

opportunity to distance yourself. Here it is. No, here it is.

VOICE: Basically Beck, Beck's erratic. He either won't or can't control himself

even after he loses a hundred advertisers. So you can't go there. Murdoch was

asked at a shareholders conference a couple of weeks ago about Beck, shareholder

concerns about Beck. He said he doesn't agree with everything that goes on the

Fox News Channel, but he's standing with Beck. Ailes recruited Beck to do this.

So he's standing with Beck. That leaves you with sponsors. So People Four has

backed up a Tides Foundation call with Media Matters called Drop Fox to ask for

advertisers to take responsibility for this rhetoric. I was recently told by a

member of the Murdoch family that if you could affect the bottom line, you might

get attention by the NewsCorp board. But the truth is we can't wait for that. So

Sarah Palin right now in our view needs to step up. She needs to step up because

she's a leader of the Republican Party, of the conservative movement.





America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag

by Sarah Palin

GLENN: Congratulations, by the way.

VOICE: She is a Tea Party favorite. She is the one person in this country right

now today who in the national interest, just in the moment to put partisanship

aside.

GLENN: Do it, Sarah.

VOICE: Could pull this country back from the precipice of another Oklahoma

City. And that's what a real leader does.

GLENN: Okay.

VOICE: That's what we're asking.

GLENN: Sarah?

PAT: Time to

GLENN: As the leader now, as the GOP of the GOP, as a Tea Party favorite, as

somebody that they don't always agree with but they respect, as a real leader,

it's time. It's time to make a choice.

SARAH PALIN: Well, these silly and ironic men, this is this is ironic. Them

insisting that, you know, I should just be ignored because I am the irrelevant

(inaudible) mom in Wasilla.

GLENN: No, no, no. No, you are as an American citizen for national, for the

national interests, you are the only one that can do this.

PAT: That can stop him. You've got to stop him, Sarah.

SARAH PALIN: Okay. Okay, so Glenn, from my kitchen table in Wasilla, here's the

deal.

GLENN: Yeah.

SARAH PALIN: Now, we know, Glenn, you're up against one of the richest and self

suggested, most powerful men in the world. In George Soros, right?

GLENN: Spooky dude.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah. The extreme leftwing king is with many, many minions, that's

what he is.

GLENN: Yes. Oh, yes.

SARAH PALIN: So, you know, when I speak of your love of our Founding Fathers and

how you are helping to educate Americans about respecting our nation's history

so that we don't lose what makes America exceptional and the far, far left

mouthpieces, they're twisting and spinning and perverting that message, no, what

I do, I go back to what Abraham Lincoln said about standing with anybody that

stands right. You stand with him when he's right and you part with him when he

goes wrong. I stand with you, Glenn, and I stand with

GLENN: No, no. In the national interest you've got to stop. You're the only one!

You're like Obi Wan Kenobi. Sarah Palin, you're our only hope.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah, Glenn

PAT: Did you ever think you'd see the day, Sarah, when Media Matters would be

calling you the only hope?

GLENN: For America?

PAT: For America.

GLENN: I mean, that's incredible.

PAT: Amazing.

GLENN: It's sad. We were deciding we were trying to decide if it was laughable

or kind of sad, pathetic kind of like that smelly kid in third grade that

everybody looked around and looked at and went, that's kind of sad.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah, it's a little bit of both. I see more humor in it, though.

GLENN: Yes.

SARAH PALIN: And it shows, though, how pathetic their argument is that they

would be that desperate as to reach out to me to say, you know, you need to stop

Glenn Beck, you need to stop his what they perceive as inciting the violence.

Glenn, you know I abhor violence. I know you do. Hating war, hating Civil War

and praying for peace and wanting peace and freedom for our kids in a civil

society, that is the mission here is explaining to Americans what the threats

are to our peace and to our opportunities and to our freedom in America.

GLENN: Yeah.

SARAH PALIN: That is what I see you doing and that is why I support what you are

doing.

GLENN: Sarah, I I can't tell you how disappointed I am in you. I really, I

thought you were going to take this moment to lead. I really did, but now, now,

Sarah and I want you to understand this. Now Media Matters is going to come out

against you, and they are not going to like you anymore. They like you so much,

but now they're going to have to

SARAH PALIN: Darn!

GLENN: Now they are going to have to isolate you, too. Oh, boy.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah, because heretofore, they were on my side.

GLENN: They have been on your side.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah.

GLENN: You know what?

PAT: Fighting for you every step of the way.

GLENN: It's like the it's like that time that abortion doctor said on TV the

other day, women only have abortions because they care about motherhood. They're

only destroying you or trying to destroy you because they love you so much!

SARAH PALIN: There we go with the Orwellian thinking. Twisted around.

GLENN: Two plus two equals six.

SARAH PALIN: There you go. And I'm the idiot, yeah.

PAT: Sarah, if you change your mind, we have David Brock's number over at Media

Matters.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: He's waiting for your phone call.

GLENN: He doesn't have a lot to do.

PAT: He will be sitting by the phone.

GLENN: Sarah, let me ask you, what is what do you think the what do you think

the most important race to watch next week, the one that you say if this one

happens, things really change? I mean, I think Tom Tancredo in Colorado is

amazing. That's amazing.

SARAH PALIN: And Tom's going to do absolutely wonderfully for his state and for

our country, too, as the governor of that state. And I'm anxious to see how that

all unfolds, especially because he, too, has come under such attack from the

machine, really the machine on both sides of the aisle.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, big time.

SARAH PALIN: That is certainly one to watch, absolutely. Of course, I, near and

dear to my heart, am very, very interested and engaged in the Alaska Senate race

to see how Lisa Murkowski running as this third party establishment/entitlement

party candidate is throwing everything and the kitchen sink against the

Republican nominee Joe Miller. I'm very engaged in this race up here.

GLENN: Isn't it amazing that the establishment, the GOP establishment, you know,

people like Karl Rove who, by the way, has announced that you're just not

qualified to. It's a good thing you're in the kitchen, Sarah. It is. But

SARAH PALIN: I'm barefoot, too.

GLENN: Really? Are you pregnant? Are you announcing? If you're not pregnant, get

Todd. He'll explain how it all works. Anyway, it is amazing to me that they have

all said that the worst thing that could happen is a third party, and they were

afraid of the tea parties of creating a third party. Well, the Tea Party goes in

and works within the system and they get their candidates within the system, and

the system itself starts to create a third party.

SARAH PALIN: Right.

GLENN: An establishment party. It's amazing.

SARAH PALIN: It's an entitlement party. That's their thinking is how dare anyone

challenge me, my position, my authority, the seat is mine, mine, mine. That's

where they're headed.

GLENN: Sarah, we will, we'll talk to you we'll talk to you next week. Are you

part where are you going to be on Tuesday?

SARAH PALIN: I will be in New York. I hope I get to see you, let's see, a couple

of days before until a couple of days after the election. So

GLENN: Oh, good. Okay, good. All right. We'll see each other then. Thanks,

Sarah.

SARAH PALIN: Okay.

GLENN: God bless, bye bye.

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.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"

Former Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard and Glenn Beck don't agree much on policy, but they're in lockstep on principles.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Tulsi spoke with Glenn about one of her last acts in Congress, introducing the "Protect Women's Sports Act," which she says would "strengthen, clarify, and uphold the intent of Title IX to provide a level playing field for girls and women in sports." But since then, the Biden administration has gone in the opposite direction, and has supported allowing biological men to compete in women's sports.

Watch the video clip below to hear why Tulsi took a stand for female athletes:

Later this week, former President Trump will attend CPAC and give his first major policy appearance since leaving office. Sources close to the President reveal he will focus on "the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement."

The future of the GOP is a question that demands real discussion before elections in 2022 and 2024. Right now, I can see three possible answers for how you act:

  1. Those in power and senior positions will ignore the reasons behind Donald Trump winning in 2016. They will be vindicated in their minds because they outlasted him, as they view DC as a job for life. These leaders will go back to business as usual and seek forgiveness from the left, hoping for unity and acceptance in the future.
  2. The second outcome is another section of the party that is understandably very angry over the left's Presidents treatment. They still support and believe in Trump. They think it's time to take off the gloves and treat Biden/the left exactly how they treated Trump.
  3. The few policy positions offered in public will be centered solely around opposing the left. They will also make the case how the left suck, are dangerous, and how you need them in power. The next four years are merely a countdown for Trump to run again and right the wrong of 2020.
  4. The third outcome is very similar to the second, but with one key difference. While they appreciate everything Trump accomplished while in office, they feel it's time to unite behind another candidate.
Question

Which of these three positions will work best for the American people? Which helps built a political base for elections in both 2022 and 2024?

If you seek to help save America, it is critical to do some soul searching. Whether you love or hate him, Donald Trump got 75 million votes and made advancements in key demographics. What did he do well that you can develop further? In what areas was he poor, and how can you improve?

I want to raise six principled points everyone on the right should be forced to consider in the run-up to 2024.

1 - Understanding American Exceptionalism

FACT: America is an exceptional nation. If you read enough of world history, you will find ample evidence that America acted in ways that made it unique and significantly different from other countries in the past and modern times. These reasons must be understood and promoted through the culture and body politic.

One of those reasons is the layout of your Declaration of Independence. If you look around politics today, you will see people on all political sides telling you what they hate, why the other side is the enemy, and how they must be defeated.

In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson also made that case against the English when he listed 27 grievances against the King. So how is the layout key? It took Jefferson 357 words to get to those grievances. Your Declaration is your mission statement: it tells everyone in the world what America aspires to be. It states the belief that all were created equal, all had certain rights that come directly from God, and that it is the government's job to protect rights -- not give people rights.

The left is successfully painting everyone on the right to be a terrorist who enjoyed the Capitol Hill riots. If you ever want to win another election, it will be critical to explain what you stand for to the American people.

After all, ask yourself which makes you the most passionate to vote - removing someone from office or voting for a vision and change you believe in?

2 - The Constitution

Is there a better place to start this vision than the Constitution? Yes, it is mostly ignored today by those in power and is only referenced by politicians and media when it fits a narrative.

The Constitution is a beautiful and complex document but is primarily based on a straightforward principle. The government should be extremely limited in its power, but it should be as close to the people as possible where there is a clear need for government. Who can argue with this principle?

Who wants someone they have never met, dictating how they live their life?

This is why the Constitution grants the President no real power, and gives Congress 18 clauses of power, listed under Article 1, Section 8. Any and every power not mentioned there belongs at the state level.

3 - Finances

The power structure in DC has changed many times over the last twenty years, with both parties having the opportunity to rule the different federal branches. There have been two periods where one party controlled all the power in DC:

  • 2008-2010: Obama / Dem
  • 2016-2018: Trump / GOP

Despite these changes, your government continually grows, you continue to spend money you don't have, and in ten out of the last thirteen years, you have added over $1,000,000,000,000 to your national debt, which now sits just under $28 trillion. Does this seem sustainable to you? Of course not, but sadly your finances only get worse.

America has revenue of over $3.2 trillion every year, yet DC has not passed a budget since 2008. Can you imagine any business running that way? Do you think Apple, Amazon, or Disney have a budget? It is time to get America on a path to financial sustainability, work towards a balanced budget, and explain to the American people how you will achieve it.

4 - Taxes

Do you remember discussing taxes during the Tea Party?

We used to make the simple moral case to the American people: any money you earn is yours, you should use it to plan your life, and the government has no right to take it from you. This was so successful around 2012 that Herman Cain ran for President with one primary policy: the 9-9-9 plan.

If America is to return to prosperity after Covid, lower taxes and a simpler tax code must be a central theme.

5 - Cutting Government

Look at the size of the US government in 2021. Are you happy? Can you name the numerous departments? Is it now the freedom-loving Americans' position that agencies like Education, Energy, EPA, and Commerce are constitutional bodies of government and are well-run?

How about the IRS, which targeted Tea-Party groups under President Obama? Do they deserve support, or is it time to start sharing a vision of the departments that should be abolished?

This principle used to be a big part of the Conservative platform. It played a massive role in 2012 when Rick Perry ran for President. His campaign was destroyed in 45 short seconds when he could not remember the three agencies he would abolish.

Maybe it's time to refresh this debate but change the parameters. How about we discuss the agencies that should be kept?

6 - Bill of Rights

Today, the Bill of Rights is under constant attack. The far-left/woke mob hates free speech, and they seek to cancel anyone with an opposing view. However, the attacks on the Bill of Rights don't always come from the left.

America has a second amendment that guarantees you the right to bear arms. The last time the GOP held both houses of Congress and the Presidency, they banned bump stocks - but who really NEEDS a bump stock?

As the years have passed, some have admitted they are open to red flag laws. Is this still the case?

While the second amendment may be under attack, it is clear the fourth amendment is dead. Regardless of which party holds power in DC, the NSA is given continuous ability to spy on Americans. The simple, principled case from Rand Paul of "get a warrant" always falls on deaf ears.

The Bill of Rights should be a unifying document for most Americans, as the principles are self-evident and a significant part of any freedom platform going forward.

Conclusion

America will face significant challenges over the coming years. As the government continues to grow, the far left get more hostile, and central planners seek a great reset. If you share my concern, then now is the time to forget our tribes and ignore the debate on who should be President in 2024.

It's time to work hard to build a platform by raising a banner of bold colors, not pale pastels. We must share a clear vision to the American people of a bright future where they are free, prosperous, and can pursue their happiness.

When the platform is built and successful, people can identify the best candidate to run in 2024.
