Glenn Beck: McCain picks Palin!




Glenn Beck on Governor Palin

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. I may have found my pick for President. I want to explain this over the next few days. But it may be now John McCain because of Sarah Palin's experience on taking her own party on but not the way John McCain does. And if John McCain thinks he could pick somebody like her and she will be neutralized and she would be and she would step to the plate and say, "Oh, well, now I've got my ticket, I could be, you know, the first female President or whatever." Her experience shows Sarah Palin don't play that way. This is a vice presidential pick that if she was vice president and she disagreed, I mean, if she felt things were going awry and they were losing the heart and soul of the conservative party, she just might be the kind that would step up and say, you know what, I'm done, I'm out, he's going to have to find another vice president. We'll have to continue to look, but I'm going to give you some things that I know about Sarah Palin that I think will energize you.

We stumbled onto Sarah Palin months and months and months ago. It was right after the first of the year. I think it was it may have been April when I read about Sarah Palin, this unknown governor from Alaska, that she had just had a child with Down Syndrome. I want to play what I said on television the night we found out. Here it is.

GLENN: 2006 not exactly a great year with Republicans with the election thing but I want to focus on the positive here, Sarah Palin. She was elected as the new governor of Alaska. I didn't even know a Republican won in the election in 2006, but she did. Sarah Palin. Impeccable record, one of the names being thrown around for possible vice presidential candidate for John McCain, but I don't want to make this about politics because it's not. Governor Palin returned to work this week, just three days after giving birth to her fifth child called Trig. The name means both true and brave victory. A spokesperson for the governor confirmed that Trig was born with Down Syndrome. Now, about the birth. Palin said Trig is beautiful, already adored by us. We knew through early testing he would face special challenges and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives.

I read that story today and I thought, why have we not heard about this story. Here is an incredibly accomplished, smart, powerful woman who beyond all her talents has something, it seems like no politician possesses, perspective. She understands what a gift she's been given. It's been my experience with the parents of children with special needs that God usually gives those children really as a gift to truly amazing people. Listen to her language that she used. She feels privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow unspeakable joy.

I have a daughter of special needs and I can tell you that there is no one in my life that I have learned more from than my daughter. No one that has such a special spirit, no one that can inspire me the way that she does. I mean, it's tough sometimes. She knows it and I know it. But she is truly an incredible gift, and I am privileged to be entrusted with her. I believe the American people generally consent when we find somebody that stands out from the crowd, somebody who is able to shine even in such a dark realm as the world of politics. That's probably why Sarah Palin is one of the most popular governors in the country. Approval ratings in the mid 80s. Sure, I'm sure she's doing a great job, but it takes something more than that, doesn't it? Something by all accounts this woman has. Congratulations, governor Palin, a happy mom for the fifth time. From New York.

GLENN: Okay. I know I am a dad of a child with special needs, but just that story inspires me. But there is so much more to Governor Palin why do I say I might have found the person that can make me pull the lever for the Republican party? Because this woman seems to have real principles.

Let me just share some things with you. She first tried to run against the governor of Alaska, the former governor, Murkowski. She lost. Murkowski wanted to silence her. So he decides, you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to appoint her onto the as the ethics commissioner onto the Alaska oil and gas conservation commission. I'm going to give her power. Now, this is a Republican governor appointing her and giving her the head over the ethics of the Alaska oil and gas conservation commission. He figured that, "She'll be quiet because I'll give her a little taste of power. I'll show her that I'm going to bring her into the party and I'm going to appoint her and she's going to sit right next to the head of the Alaska GOP."

So she's sitting right next to the chair of the Republican party and the governor, who's a Republican, appoints. What does she do? She resigns. She not only resigns, but she resigns in a very public protest over the ethics that she saw on that, not just the ethics of that council but specifically the ethics of the head of the Republican party. People loved her. It's what I've always said about Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton would be President today, I don't mean she would be the nominee, she would be President today. She would have been President in 2000 if, when her husband finally said, "All right, all right, I give," if she would have calmly walked out of the White House and held a press conference that night and said, "I think Bill Clinton is an amazing President. I agree with his policies and he will always be my President because I respect him for what he's done for this country. However, a woman isn't treated like that. Over and over and over again every marriage has its problems. We've had more than our fair share. But you know what? He's lied to me for the last time, and he lied to you. You make your own decision, but as a wife, I've made my decision. You don't treat a woman like that." She would have been elected in a landslide in 2000.

What people are looking for is somebody that's not intoxicated by power. Now, on a very small level we've seen this with Sarah Palin. Is she the kind of vice president that will stand up and say, "You know what, John, you're out of your mind, you're out of your mind. This violates every conservative principle I have in my body," and she is conservative. She is conservative.

Let me give you a couple of things first before I get into those credentials. They're going to say, "You've got to be kidding me. You're showing me a governor of Alaska?" "Yeah, that's what we're showing you, governor of Alaska." She has executive experience. No one else on the ticket, no one else on the ticket has any executive they've never run anything. They've all been senators or community activists. None of them have ever run anything. She has. She's the only one with executive experience.

Now, take it a step further. Let's look at the two let's look at the two camps. One has no executive experience, and the top of the ticket is the one with the least amount of any experience. The apprentice is leading the master. You look at the McCain ticket, you've got the apprentice in the appropriate position, to learn from the master, in this case hopefully teach the master a few things. She's also young. She's also a woman. You tell me that and quite honestly I think she's kind of hot. I've seen a couple of no, I'm just sayin'. I've seen a couple where she's I've seen a couple of pictures where she's looking pretty hot. I'm just saying she's a beautiful mom. That's all I'm saying. And Stu, do you have that confirmed that she is a beautiful mom?

STU: Yes, Glenn, she is hot. That is confirmed.

GLENN: Thank you very much. She knows how to run against all odds. This woman ran against not only the Democrat, she ran against the incumbent Republican, and she won. She won against the Republican in the primary and then she won against the Democrat. She has bipartisan appeal. She's a woman, but she's not a feminist. She's a strong woman, but she doesn't hate men. She is so pro life that when the doctors came to her and said, "Oh, boy, you've got a kid with Down Syndrome, what do you say, should we kill him?" She said, "Absolutely not." And she wouldn't allow them to perform any more tests. "We know he's going to have problems; we'll be able to deal with any of them."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
