Glenn Beck: Edwards punished with a baby




John Edwards awarded 'Father of the Year'

GLENN: Let's go to Ben in Philadelphia who has accepted the challenge that you believe you can beat up on John Edwards more than he's beaten up on himself?

CALLER: Well, Glenn, I don't mind beating up on him but I'm glad it's not his baby because I don't want him punished with a baby.

OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: Maybe you know what, maybe that's what Barack Obama was talking about. Maybe he was talking about the Edwards triangle, you know. John Edwards, his friend, and a mistress that they both shared. Maybe that's what because that would make sense.

Stu, just putting it into context. Let's say I'm Barack Obama and I say, "Look, we all make mistakes, you know. Who hasn't had an adulterous affair and shared the mistress with your friend. We all make mistakes."

VOICE: Why.

GLENN: I don't because we're human.

VOICE: Why?

GLENN: John, shhh, I'm trying to help out here. We all make mistakes, but... but...

VOICE: Why.

GLENN: No, I'm playing Barack Obama, Dan. You are supposed to be a mind reader. Let me do it again.

STU: We've lost the mood.

GLENN: We've lost the mood. Okay. Stu.

STU: Yes.


GLENN: I mean, who are you to judge.

STU: Right.

GLENN: We all make mistakes. We're all, you know, "Okay, so John Edwards had an affair and he apparently was sharing his mistress with his good friend."

STU: We all take a different path.

GLENN: Right. And his other friend took $400,000 in campaign money and completely unrelated to that, has been giving that mistress that his two friends have shared $15,000 a month.

STU: Different strokes for different folks.

GLENN: Exactly right. Who are you to judge. Okay, they made mistakes, but...

OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: It works.

STU: It does work, in that context.

GLENN: (laughing).

VOICE: Why, why.

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know. I don't really Frank, you're on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn.

GLENN: Hi.

CALLER: In the spirit of the Olympics, I think the silver medal goes to John Edwards.

GLENN: Silver?

CALLER: The gold goes to Jesse Jackson permanently.

GLENN: Why do you think that? I think there's extenuating circumstances.

CALLER: He worked hard for that.

GLENN: Who? Jesse Jackson?

CALLER: I think he gave more money by far.

GLENN: Did his wife have cancer?

CALLER: Ooh.

GLENN: Yeah. See what I mean?

CALLER: I'm still going to give it to him. It was much longer and much seedier.

GLENN: How do you more seedy than sharing her with your friend?

CALLER: Well, maybe. I didn't think of that one.

GLENN: See what I mean? That's why you are not an Olympic judge. You see what I mean?

VOICE: Why.

GLENN: I think we know why he is not an Olympic judge. He's just going to higgledy piggledy give the gold to Jesse Jackson. Who by the way I hope John Edwards is getting spiritual counseling from Jesse Jackson. No, I do. You know, this sounds so horrible. I feel really bad because, look, if it's John Edwards having an affair, bad. I don't know of a more hurtful thing than that. And I'm certainly not going to sit in judgment of anybody that has made that mistake, God knows. However, I think you cross a line when she's I mean, you cross a line having an adulterous affair, but you cross the line when she's got cancer, you know.

VOICE: Why?

GLENN: Well, I just think it's a little and then you have the, you're running for President and you have your wife go out and do campaign speeches for you, you know? I think you cross the line into eternal damnation.

VOICE: Why?

GLENN: I'm not one to damn anybody but that may be the one. I'd just be interested to be up at the bench, you know, when, you know, the Lord says, "Next." And you have the chance of going before John Edwards or after John Edwards. It's just a number system. Doesn't know. Do you look at John Edwards and go, you know what? You look tired. You go first. Don't you think? Don't you think the Lord is kind of like, "Are you kidding me? I was just, 20 minutes with John Edwards. You're in." I mean

STU: It's like going through customs after the Grateful Dead.

GLENN: Here's our number, 888 727 BECK.

(OUT 9:42)

EDWARDS: We will never have the America that all of us deem of, the promise of America which has been available to so many of us will not be available to our children and our grandchildren.

VOICE: Why.

EDWARDS: And I take this very personally. I watched my grandmother who I love dearly.

VOICE: Why.

EDWARDS: She would cook, walk her way to the mill, come home and take care of us again.

VOICE: Why?

GLENN: I don't know.

EDWARDS: My grandfather who was partially paralyzed would go to work the graveyard shift in that mill and come back in the morning when we would have breakfast together.

VOICE: Why.

GLENN: I don't know.

EDWARDS: My father who's here with me tonight.

VOICE: I don't know.

GLENN: I don't know.

EDWARDS: Worked 36 years and my grandmother

GLENN: What?

EDWARDS: Hard, tedious, hard, tedious work. Why did he do it?

VOICE: Why, why, why.

GLENN: I don't know.

EDWARDS: Why did he struggle and sacrifice? Why did your parents and grandparents struggle and sacrifice. They did it?

VOICE: Why?

EDWARDS: So that I could have a better life. God bless you. Thank you for everything you've done. We are in this fight together. Thank you.

GLENN: All righty then. Let's go to Chris in Pennsylvania. Picking up the challenge. John Edwards said on Friday, you can't beat up on me more than I've already beaten up on myself. I believe he threw down the gauntlet, quite honestly. Let me go to Chris in Pennsylvania. Pick it up, Chris.

CALLER: Good morning, Mr. Beck.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

CALLER: Outstanding. Your show, too, was really great, that special you did with the executive guy. Thank you very much.

GLENN: Thanks.

CALLER: It was great. Why?

GLENN: I don't know why.

VOICE: Why.

CALLER: Listen. Lawyer, ambulance chaser, millionaire, okay? Are you surprised? I'm not.

GLENN: No, see you left out you put millionaire for some unknown reason, like you can't trust rich people.

CALLER: No, no, no. You can trust rich people. You know what I mean? Look at how you act.

GLENN: No, but you left out an important one. Politician.

CALLER: Well, yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. You've got lawyer, politician.

CALLER: Pardon me.

GLENN: I mean, you know what? Here's why this is important. And really it's not that important at this point other than where was the media.

CALLER: Sure 6789

GLENN: Where was the media on this one? I don't need to know about John Edwards and his sex life and everything else now except that the guy still wants to have credibility. I believe he's still lying. It doesn't make any sense. Why if the Stu, again your wife, remission. She had cancer. You've been cheating on her.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: You cheated on her and you shared her with your friend Dan.

STU: Obviously.

GLENN: Dan, you are still having dinner with that woman that you had a baby with but you for some reason haven't visited the baby.

DAN: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: Pardon me?

DAN: I don't want them punished with a baby. So why is it that, Stu, you would be visiting the baby at 2:00 in the morning?

STU: Why? I don't know.

DAN: He's a good friend.

VOICE: Why?

GLENN: 2:00 in the morning.

STU: Well, have you ever seen Cheaters? The show. They run it late. It's in syndication. It's fantastic. It's in Dallas. It's on late and a lot of times they will run them in the big blocks, several episodes in a row. Once you get going on one, you can't stop. So you are probably there. That would make sense from, like, 9:40 to, like, 2:40 and you are just watching Cheaters.

GLENN: Look at these people. Look at these people. Man, these people are so stupid. Oh, crap, look at the time. I've got to go. But he was holding the baby. At 2:00 in the morning. Maybe she do we know? Does the mistress, does she have arms? No, she was a video camera person. Maybe that's why she was fired.

STU: Armless.

GLENN: She, like, loss her arms in a you know what, because he's the common man, he was out there in the flannel, hey, I'm just like you, I'm a farmer. Maybe she fell into, like, a combine machine.

STU: Just her arms.

GLENN: Ripped her arms off. Hey, could happen. I lost my cousin, my cousin lost an arm in a bread mixer. She might have lost both arms in a combine accident.

DAN: It apparently caught her face a little, too.

GLENN: See, now, that's not see, that's unkind.

DAN: That's just being accuracy in the media, Glenn.

GLENN: Let me go to Linda. Hi, Linda, you are on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hi, I wanted to comment about John Edwards.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: And his gauntlet that he threw down that he can't beat up on hip self more than I can beat up on him. I think he's a coward because his first response was to run away which is a pretty pathetic statement for somebody who wanted to be President of this country.

GLENN: Well, here's again here's the problem. The guy is what are you hiding from at this point? Just get it out and just be done with it. Just be done with it. I mean, you know, I think America does not have a problem. We all make mistakes, all of us, some bigger than others. And America doesn't have a problem with somebody who says, "I made a huge mistake and I have done everything I can to make up for it and learn from the less on, and here's what I've learned. Nobody has a problem with that.

You know, I remember when I watched Hillary and Bill Clinton in the first 60 Minutes interview and they held hands and he said, look, we're telling the American people we've had problems in our relationship, and I think they know what we're talking about, but we went through them and we went through them together. I remember on the air saying enough, enough, the guy it's asked and answered; we don't need any more. Unless it's a recurring pattern.

But here's what I love about the media. The media, first of all, why would you do an hour on where was the media on this one? The media does nothing on this story and now they are all coming out and saying it was his arrogance. And yet the media doesn't seem to have a problem with somebody flying around with O Force One.

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Where was the media on this? Where is the media on the Olympics and what's really going on in China? Where is the government and the media on Georgia? Believe it or not, I can tie the John Edwards, the Georgia and the Olympics all together. I'm going to do it next and then we're going to spend an hour on it tonight, CNN headline news, headline prime. Don't miss it.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
