Glenn Beck: McCain


Glenn Beck is seen here in his darkened studio on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: So John McCain is dealing with the three possible candidates and I've heard a fourth today but I think this is just hype coming from Bloomberg. Fourth one is Bloomberg. John McCain, are you -- there's no way John McCain picks Michael Bloomberg.

STU: That makes no sense.

GLENN: No sense whatsoever.

STU: Yes, you know, they both agree on a couple of things like global warming and stuff.

GLENN: Second Amendment?

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: John McCain, the only thing he has going for him is he's good on the Second Amendment.

STU: That's not the only thing.

GLENN: One of them. I mean the war, too.

STU: But he is strong on the Second Amendment. Bloomberg's horrible on it.

GLENN: Horrible.

STU: Not to mention in all --

GLENN: Why would you do that.

STU: What possible person would -- it doesn't make any sense at all. You are not going to win New York anyway.

GLENN: No.

STU: There's no way.

GLENN: No.

STU: The only thing you would want to do, the only possible validity to that is because John McCain is a crappy fundraiser and if you have a guy who's going to donate $200 million of his own money, there's some reason you can understand it.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But it still doesn't make enough sense. They don't agree on -- I mean, they don't agree on enough.

GLENN: Yeah. So I mean, it would just be a horrible move. Then there's Crist out of Florida. Here's my problem with Crist. He's too tan. I know --

STU: Very good point.

GLENN: I know that that might be a little shallow, but I think he's too tan. He's --how do you get a tan like that?

STU: Well, maybe you are working outside.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

STU: You've got to admire a guy with a tan like that.

GLENN: I want to know, all of a sudden does the state assembly have some sort of a sunroof?

STU: I don't know the answer to that.

GLENN: Capital building?

STU: I like a guy who can keep things in perspective.

GLENN: Come on! Somebody with a tan that much, you're George Hamilton. You're laying by the pool all the time. I don't want George Hamilton in there.

STU: I don't know. George Hamilton might be a good candidate as they don't consider George Hamilton. I don't know.

GLENN: Nobody's considered George Hamilton.

STU: Maybe we should consider George Hamilton.

GLENN: Now let's go on to Governor Jindal. I like him.

STU: Yeah, I like him a lot. He's definitely a rising star in the party.

GLENN: But he's like 12.

STU: Yeah, he's pretty young and he's only been governor for, what, a year?

GLENN: Yeah, but he was a congressman.

STU: Still, though, I mean I don't know that -- I mean, --

GLENN: Oh, I'm sorry, yeah, Barack Obama's experience is so extensive. I mean, at least he's run a state.

STU: But I think there's -- look, I can't answer for the Democrats and why they're only -- their two candidates both have been in office for, like, 16 weeks.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But, you know, I think Jindal would be great. I think that he's probably not going to get it there time just because he hasn't -- isn't the requirement, the legal requirement to be --

GLENN: I'm sorry. Hang on. Could you transfer that to my screen?

STU: To be President is 35, right?

GLENN: Would you check? If that's Jack Bauer, I'd like to know. Would you just -- it might be Jack Bauer. He might be saying, I need to talk to the President, I need you to -- could you just, could you just tap into their servers? It could be. I don't know. Is it Jack Bauer?

STU: I think we're getting updated information here. We'll have this to you in just a second. This is breaking.

GLENN: Was it Jack Bauer? Is there a bomb ready to go off? Does he need me to do anything? Because I'll do it. I'll lie my face off to the people in charge here.

STU: Well, of course you would.

GLENN: That's right. To help Jack? You bet.

STU: It wasn't Jack Bauer, though.

GLENN: Oh. Who was it?

STU: It was a much less shapely person. We're going to be getting him on the phone here in a minute because he's got inside information on one of the topics we're talking about.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Which topic?

STU: Governor Crist.

GLENN: Governor Crist? I forget that he's the governor.

STU: Right. He's the governor.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Much less shapely. Jeffy?

CALLER: Yes, Mr. Beck. I hear you talking to the governor to the great state of Florida.

GLENN: He's too tan.

VOICE: You know, he claims that that is from his heritage, his Greek heritage. So you have to account for that.

GLENN: Are you saying that basically what I was saying was he's too Greek?

VOICE: Then you're a racist.

GLENN: Is that what it is? I'm a racist? Right.

VOICE: Letting you know.

GLENN: He's too tan. How does a man -- I'm sorry. I know Greek people. You fade a little bit.

VOICE: You don't know Florida Greek people.

GLENN: The man should be inside working. The man should be inside working. I'm just saying.

VOICE: He's out meeting and greeting people is what it is.

GLENN: He should not be out meeting and greeting people.

VOICE: When he's out meeting and greeting people, the sun darkens his skin with the Greek heritage. That's what he says.

GLENN: Do you think that -- no, he's lying. It's the golf course! Do you --

STU: I give him credit for it.

GLENN: You know what? I want him to roll up his sleeve. I want to see if he has a farmer's tan. I want to see. And this is not in a weird way. I want him to take off his shirt. If he's tan all over, he's laying by the pool some place.

VOICE: He shouldn't have to prove himself to racist people like you.

GLENN: He should prove that he's not tan all over. I want to see his tan line.

STU: We should point out that, just so the audience is clear, that this is definitely in a weird way. Like, what you're doing now is definitely weird.

GLENN: No. You don't think we have a right to see his tan lines?

VOICE: Why?

STU: Definitely not.

VOICE: No.

GLENN: Because I'm telling you, and this might be a good reason to hire him, I don't think he's actually even running the state. I think he's got all of his calls just transferred right to his pool. I want to talk to somebody who --

STU: That's who I want.

GLENN: I want to talk to somebody who has actually been on the phone with Governor Crist and then swear they heard, like, pool splashing. And he's like, no, I'm at a signing ceremony. That was a pool splash.

VOICE: Listen, he claims that he swims every day for exercise.

GLENN: Ah, now we're starting to get to the truth, uh-huh.

VOICE: That's what the man says.

GLENN: "I swim for exercise usually between 10:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon."

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
