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.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."
