Gangsta rap battle: Glenn vs. Ludacris




Glenn will have to sharpen his skills to take on Ludacris in THE rap battle of 2008.

GLENN: Sure. Here we go. A little love, please. Ludacris in support for Barack Obama. Here it is. I am back on it like I just signed my record deal. Yeah, the best is here. The Bentley coupe paint is dripping wet. It got sex appeal.

Could you stop the music for just a second? Stu, is any of this supposed to rhyme or anything?

STU: You'll hear when the wordsmith Ludacris does kick in here. You'll understand that it does rhyme. See, you're not understanding --

GLENN: The best is here, the Bentley coupe paint is dripping wet. It got sex appeal.

STU: "Appeal" and "Here" are rhymes in this context.

GLENN: They both have Es in it. Go ahead.

You never should have doubted him with a slot in the President's iPod. Obama shattered em. That one rhymes. I said -- no, sorry. Said I handled his biz, and I'm one of his favorite rappers. Well, give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer.

Can you stop the music again? Stu, it's still not rhyming.

STU: No. He's making an important point.

GLENN: Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers. See, that doesn't work. Well, give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer.

STU: As you know, Glenn, both rapper and hammer both end in er. So there you go. That's what you got.

GLENN: It doesn't make -- Hillary hated on you -- hang on just a second. One word. Stop. Who is he addressing here? Is he addressing the African-American community? Who is Hillary hating on?

STU: Obama, right? Hillary hated on Obama, Glenn. As you remember the coverage, you remember Brian Williams coming out in that one newscast and saying tonight, Hillary hating on Obama.

GLENN: Yeah, but I don't think it -- because the line before.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Better yet, put him in office; make me your vice president. Put him in office. So when he's saying there put him in office, better yet, put him in office, he's speaking to a community of some sort. I believe he's speaking to the citizens of the world quite frankly.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: But then he said Hillary hated on you. So --

STU: I don't -- you know, there may be a continuity problem here.

GLENN: I didn't -- you know, I'm a self-educated guy. I didn't go to college. So I don't know all the ins and outs of this kind of work.

STU: But it's important to see you learning. That's what it's all about. It's all about diversity.

GLENN: Better yet, put him in office. Make me your vice president. Hillary hated on you.

Oh, now, here's a -- this is unfair -- so that bitch is irrelevant. It's not very nice. Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what? If you said it, then you meant it. How you want it, have a gut -- can we stop for a second? I don't understand. If you said it, then you meant it. How you want it, have a gut.

STU: Okay, I believe what he's trying to do there is if you said it, then you meant it how you want it. If you said it the way you wanted it to come out.

GLENN: See, there's no punctuation.

STU: Yeah, the punctuation is a problem.

GLENN: If you said it, then you meant it how you want it.

STU: It's just like it doesn't seem the rap community has embraced the semicolon. In a way that would really be helpful to us.

GLENN: See, I think we've -- may I? I think we've lost kind of the rhythm of this. May I start again? Please start at the beginning.

STU: You think you --

GLENN: I have, I think we've lost some of the magic.

STU: It just feels like you're freestyling. Doesn't seem like you're reading it.

GLENN: Well, that's just the way I roll. But let's start from the beginning. Let's do this on -- (clearing throat). And now a dramatic reading with inspirational words by Ludacris. I am back on it like I just signed my record deal. Yeah. The best is here. The Bentley coupe paint is dripping wet. It got sex appeal. Never should have hated. You never should have doubted him. With a slot in the President's iPod, Obama shattered em. Said I handled his biz, and I'm one of his favorite rappers. Well, give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer. Better yet, put him in office. Make me your vice president. Hillary hated on you. So that bitch is irrelevant. Jesse, Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what? If you said it, then you meant it how you want it. Have a gut. And all you other politicians trying to hate on my man, watch us win a majority vote in every state on my man. You can't stop what's bout to happen. We bout to make history. The first black President is destined, and it was meant to be. The threats ain't fazing us. The nooses or the jokes.

Hold on just a second. I hate to -- no, I hate to -- no, I hate to wreck the mood here, but --

STU: You had such rhythm.

GLENN: The nooses and the jokes, the hate and the threats ain't fazing us? I mean, are there -- maybe I've missed the headlines of the nooses against Obama because that seems like it would be a pretty big story.

STU: Well, I mean, I'm sure they're out there. There was that one, there was that one story like a teacher.

GLENN: At Columbia University like a year and a half ago or a year ago?

STU: May have been a while ago.

GLENN: May have been a while ago and completely unrelated. You know what, here I'm looking down in Rockefeller Plaza and I see a bunch of trees in there. I don't see any nooses. Is it possible that -- I mean, because the people who would hang nooses from a tree, they are dumb as a box of rocks.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Is it possible they put the nooses up and then when they got back down on the ground and they were, you know, already folding up the ladder, they were like, oh, crap, he can't even see them because of the leaves. And then somebody next to him was like, oh, just, you know what? I've already put the ladder away; just wait until fall, then you'll see them. Is it possible that that's what's happening here? Because I --

STU: It's possible. You know, with all this global warming, will they even -- will there be a fall?

GLENN: I don't know. Maybe the whole tree burst into flames. All right. Go ahead. I'm sorry.

(Music playing)

GLENN: So get off your ass, black people. It's time to get out and vote. Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got em terrified. McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed. Yeah, I said it because Bush is mentally handicapped -- again this doesn't really work -- ball up all of his speeches and I throw them like candy wrap. 'Cause you talking, I hear nothing even relevant. And you, the worst of all 43 Presidents, get out and vote or the end will be near. The world is ready for change because Obama is here. 'Cause Obama is here.

I think that is -- (applause). I mean, that's why I have all of his CDs and I love them, every single one, and I love every cut. They're all very different. They're inspiring. You know, I like when he says a presidential candidate should be in a chair because he's paralyzed. I think that's good. I think a guy who says, "Yeah, I said it because Bush is mentally handicapped," I think that -- I think it means a lot coming from a guy who says you can't stop what's bout to happen, we bout to make history. I -- me personally, I think it carries so much more weight when you say that and then you talk about somebody else being stupid.

STU: Yeah. You know, it would be silly coming from someone else.

GLENN: It would.

STU: You know what I mean? If it wasn't from such a credible source.

GLENN: May I? It would almost be ludicrous.

[ APPLAUSE ]

STU: You're a magician. Do you want to hear the original to see how he matched up?

GLENN: I think they're going to be -- can we A/B them? Go ahead. Play a little ludicrous.

(Music playing).

GLENN: See, I didn't do this part. I didn't do that. Didn't do that. Or that. I didn't do that, either.

Stop for a second. Let me just get a -- please, let me just see if I can get this right. Go ahead, Dan. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Luda -- all right, now I got it. Go back.

(Music playing).

GLENN: May I just stop for a second? Because this takes talent. Sometimes you'll hear, and this takes talent. To be able -- he doesn't write this himself, too?

STU: There's got to be a team of writers.

GLENN: I mean, because he's such a performer. And then to say he performs and he writes. Does he write the -- I mean, he may -- maybe, I doubt it, but he may write the lyrics but does he -- but does he write the melody as well?

STU: That's just not humanly possible, Glenn.

GLENN: Continue on. I'm more amazed by this man every second that goes by.

(Music playing).

GLENN: Stop, stop. See, like who has written the, bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp (making rapping noises). I don't know how you would do that. I couldn't just, you know, just -- it's not like you would be on a train or, you know, some place and you're just like, bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp... without somebody saying, good God, man, where I that down! You'd say, that's not really a song. "No, that, what you just did." "You mean the bomp bomp, bomp bomp bomp, bomp bomp." That's all I got. I know! Write it down and then just put "Repeat." That's good stuff.

STU: Imagine if he made it in a minor key.

GLENN: I think it would take on a different stone. It would take on a almost melancholy tone and you would think, is he sad? This is pure joy. Listen, this is joy.

(Music playing).

GLENN: Stop just a second. I didn't -- could you play that little part again, please? Because I missed the little trick that he did. Okay, stop. I've got to do that really good.

Better yet, put him in office. Make me your vice president. Hillary hated on you so that... is irrelevant. See, that is -- that's why I do what I do and Ludacris does what he does.

STU: Keep your day job, Glenn, because that is -- no one else could have come up with that.

GLENN: I just ask America a question? You tell me there's no opportunity in America, you're telling me that you just can't make it and, oh, jobs are hard to find. This dope has a Bentley. I mean, you tell me there's no opportunity in America? This dope has a Bentley. I'm sorry. Was I hating? 'Cause I hate when that about to happen -- I'm sorry. I hate when... bout to happen. I have to remember to lose, like, every third word because that's just the way I roll.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
