GLENN: Michele Bachmann has been here since the beginning and she has an idea

of now a Constitutional Caucus in the House of Representatives, and I wanted to

get her on, first of all, Congresswoman, congratulations.

BACHMANN: Glenn, thank you. It is so awesome to see what happened last evening

and it really was the fruition of a few years' work by a tremendous number of

coalitions saying we've got to be serious about taking our country back and you

are the nation's educator. You are the one who motivated people to get

off the couch. You taught us from your blackboard so that people today know the

head of the SEIU, the AFL/CIO, the Tide, how all of this works together. That

highly educated and motivated people to such a great extent that people were

able to go and explain to their friends and neighbors what was going on and the

coalition grew and grew and some people maligned it

and called them derogatory terms but last night after Congress not listening,

the people had their voices heard at the ballot box and it was overwhelming and

astounding. On one side you might say it was negative because it was a full scale reputation of

Obama, Pelosi and Reid, their agenda that they had passed but on the other it

was an extremely positive vote because it was an affirmation for the future,

republishing our heart to the fidelity and the principles of the constitution

and Bill of Rights. I think this is a vote that America will go on. That's what I saw last

night. I'm excited about the direction of the country.

GLENN: Michele, I spoke to you two weeks ago when I was in Minneapolis, and you

said and I thought this was very, very smart, you said we need a Constitutional

Caucus. Not a Tea Party caucus. Explain. What are you thinking?

BACHMANN: This is a broader caucus. It would be called the Constitutional

Conservative Caucus and the purpose is to bring all of these wonderful, new

people in that just ran for office that have the pulse of the American people

and bring them in. Because quite quickly within a matter of two months, people

can be co-oped into the Washington system and it's easy to lose your way. So we want

to bring together in a group so that every week we're studying the Constitution,

The Declaration, Bill of Rights. I want to invite in our Supreme Court justice,

other legal experts to come in who understand our nation's founding documents,

David Barton would have a lot to say about that as well. Bring them in and then

every week, an hour before we take our first vote have our weekly class so that

we're reminded of our constitutional

juristical limits, and then we can be a very powerful group.

GLENN: How many do you need to cobble together? This is what the progressive

caucus has done. They have cobbled together power and they don't move and they

move together.

BACHMANN: That's right. And that's why if enough of us can stick together, maybe

even 20 to 25, we can stop any bill from passing. We need 218 votes to pass a

bill and Republicans have now more than 218, but if you have a very small group

of members, 20 to 25 members, if we can hang together and if an unconstitutional

bill comes before us, something like a stimulus or government takeover of

healthcare, we can stop that bill. So this is a very powerful influential group

of people and that's why I want to encourage all of your listeners to contact

your new member of Congress or your existing member of Congress, encourage them

to become a member of the Constitutional Conservative Caucus and go to my


Facebook site if you want to we'll have information on these new classes every

week. I encourage them. You need to get into a habit. When you get into

Congress, you have so many opportunities of meetings that you go to. You need to pick a

few and go to them and encourage your member early on to become a member of the

Constitutional Conservative Caucus because then they'll have a group of people

they can hang with and stay solid with so we can encourage each other based upon

our nation's founding principles.

GLENN: As a listener, I want you to understand. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is

about to happen. I want you to go back and watch that movie. It's about to

happen, and the only thing that will save it, the only thing that will save this

movement is if they are not co-oped. Michele Bachmann is the real deal. I don't

say that lightly. I bet

there's less than five people I would say that about that. Michele Bachmann is

the real deal, this is her caucus. I urge you to call your new members of of Congress and tell them

to please get into this caucus. Michele has the right idea on this. If we can

get them, if we can hold

onto them and don't lose their soul and tie themselves to the constitution and

to each other, they won't be lost. Michele, let me ask you what's happening with

the fed today they're going to decide if they're going to monetize our debt,

which Ben Bernanke testified and said they would not do. They will do quantitative

easing QE2, between 500 billion and a trillion dollars of buying their own debt

and printing the money.

BACHMANN: That's right. The original announcement was a trillion dollars, and I

think was a shock wave sent through the financial markets and now they're

backing off and saying they might start with a couple hundred billion up to 500

billion. It doesn't matter. Every bit of it that they monetize for debt, as you

said, will mean a reduction in the value of the dollar. We're looking now

potentially at losing 20% of the value of the dollar if they go forward with

this. I wrote a letter several weeks ago to the Federal Reserve Chair Ben

Bernanke and begged him not to do this and forestall that decision before he

comes before the financial services committee, of which I have a seat on and

chaired by Barney Frank. This is a very serious move by the fed. What this means,

Glenn, is intentionally the Federal Reserve will be spiking inflation. They

think that's good for the country. Does anyone honestly believe adding inflation

would be a good thing to the country while the Federal Reserve does this? This

is a disaster.

GLENN: It is for anyone who holds large reserves of cash or has debt to pay off,

like the federal government, or your homes. It is good for that. It is awful,

awful for anybody who doesn't have a lot of money.

This is quintessential the rich get richer. Wall Street will spike. All that

money being pushed in, Wall Street people will dump it into the stock market and

the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer on this.

BACHMANN: That's right. They have done this, Glenn, since the early part of the

last century. They have so devalued the dollar that the dollar is worth about 4

cents what it was back in about 1915 and 1920 because of this issue of

inflation. The government continues to overspend. When they overspend, they

inflate the dollar and they pay their debt off with cheaper dollars, but they

are literally robbing the sustenance out of every American because they're

taking away the value of our dollar and the ones who will hurt the most are

senior citizens.

GLENN: Unbeknownst to the American people, we shipped a lot of gold over to

Germany and Europe after World War II. Can an average person go in and see the

gold that we have? Can you as a Congressman go in and eyeball the gold reserve

that we have and get an actual, legitimate estimate on what we have?

BACHMANN: I don't believe so. It's in Ft. Knox. That is something I can ask for.

GLENN: Could you ask?

BACHMANN: My understanding is that it virtually isn't there anymore.

GLENN: That's what I have heard. It would be interesting to know what they did

with our gold.

BACHMANN: I will track it down and I will get an answer for you.

GLENN: One more thing. Last night you were on with Chris Matthews and he insisted you look hypnotized and

we thought you looked great, that you did a great job but you had a great slam. Do we have the audio? You had

a great comeback for Chris Matthews and I would like to play it for the

listeners and get your response.

MATTHEWS: You want to see the democratic members of Congress investigated by the

media, you put it that way, you wanted to us investigate the Democrats for

un-American attitudes. I just want to ask you, do you stick with that plan? Do you

want us to do it, or will you do it with the subpoena power? Who do you want to

investigate the Democratic members of Congress for un-American thinking?

BACHMANN: Well, the plan I've been talking about is really four things. I would

encourage the new Republican leadership to take this on as the agenda in 2011

and it's very simple. It's keep the current tax policies so no one has increased

taxes. Number two, we need to put a full scale repeal of Obamacare passed

through the house, hopefully it can get through the Senate, and then number three, we

need to make sure that we secure the United States borders and number four, we

need to make sure that we don't have a huge increase in national energy tax.

Those are the four issues that the American people want the Congress to deal

with because they want to get certainty back into the economy.

MATTHEWS: Right.

BACHMANN: This election shows that people believe in this country. They love

enterprise and love capitalism. They want to make sure we have jobs going

forward.

MATTHEWS: Congresswoman, has someone hypnotized you tonight? Because no matter

what I ask you, you give the same answer. Are you hypnotized? Has someone put

you under a trance tonight that you give me the same answer no matter what

question I put to you?

BACHMANN: I think the American people are the ones finally speaking. We're

coming out of our trance. We're coming out of our nightmare. I think people are

thrilled tonight. I imagine that thrill is maybe not so tingling on your leg

anymore.

PAT: That's great.

GLENN: Michele, I love you. That was the greatest. He was very upset about that.

After you got off, he went on and on about it.

PAT: It wasn't a tingle. You said it was a thrill not tingling up his leg.

GLENN: He said he's emotionally moved by people speaking highly about this

country.

PAT: Yeah remember him saying that about Bush all the time, all of his speeches were like that.

GLENN: Or about 8/28 or about half my show. So Michele

BACHMANN: Chris Matthews continually, prior to the clip you had played, accused me of being in

a

trance and being hypnotized and he was extremely insulting and I was trying to

be responsive to him on questions but at the very end I thought that his true

colors were showing, and well I meant it in all good fun.

GLENN: You are not trying to have them investigated by Charlie McCarthy

BACHMANN: No.

GLENN: Charlie McCarthy would be fun wouldn't it. I mean we could have a

puppet do it.

Congressman Bachmann, thank you very much.

BACHMANN: Thank you, Glenn. We appreciate you for everything you have done.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
