Glenn Beck: Fake conservatives are media's delight

Glenn Beck's Unelectable

GLENN: Somebody asked me today, "Glenn, what is happiness. Where do you find happiness?" Because I was talking about, I was on an interview and I was talking about the Christmas Sweater. How do you know what happiness is? I know what happiness is. Do you know where it's based? It's based on knowing yourself and knowing the truth. It's based, it is based quite honestly on God. We have gotten so far away from God and we are just going, we are just going in the reverse. You know, back in the day you used to have to accomplish something. You used to have to be good at being, you know, the best in your field. You had to, you know, you had to be Babe Ruth. You had to be Neil Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, talent. You had to be an accomplished person. Then it started to get watered down a little bit and singers became less talented, actors stopped being able to act. And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, the reality shows started, people with absolutely no talent at all just famous for eating, you know, spiders or a cow butt. And then there were people like Paris Hilton that were famous just for being famous. But now -- and you're going to see this more and more -- there is a new celebrity out there. It is a new turn. It is an instant path to fame. You don't have to be a leader in your field. You just have to be a conservative who thinks that the Republican party has moved to the left. There you go, instant fame, boom. You'll be on every talk show. You'll get interviewed by all the big stream media celebrities. You'll be invited to all the cocktail parties. It is the easiest path to fame in America right now.

David From who is a guy, I've had him on the show before, seems like a nice guy. He didn't like the choice of Sarah Palin. That's totally fine, that's his opinion. But the other day he went on a rant saying that Sarah Palin represented a party that "Has decided that we just don't care about making government work anymore, so long as your heart is in the right place, so long as you have the right values, so long as you are a good Christian and you don't kill babies. Anyone can run the government." Have you ever met any conservatives that have said that? Anyone? Anyone? Like her or not, Sarah Palin is running a state with 80% approval rating. The selection had nothing to do with her being a good Christian and not killing babies. Do people want a social conservative? You bet. But more than anything else we just want a conservative, one that actually governs using conservative principles. You don't have to be a conservative. I'd rather have a libertarian in there than these clowns. He went on to say that talk radio is nothing but a "Say it louder than conservativism." Just say it louder. They say the same thing, just louder. Well, hmmm. Let me say this. If it will make Republicans actually, you know, follow conservative principles, then fine. Do your jobs! Execute the things that you're getting elected for! Do your jobs! How's that? Is that good?

And by the way, isn't John McCain the senator that pissed conservatives off more than anybody else before the election? If he had won, would these same people be saying, "See, if you just embrace amnesty, if you just embrace global warming, people will vote for Republicans." John McCain was the GOP's attempt at running a moderate and it didn't work. Yet somehow the advice from the media and fellow conservative -- no -- and fellow Republicans is try to be more moderate. Another in this amazingly instant fame category is the suddenly in-demand Kathleen Parker. She is a columnist, a proposed conservative who bashed Palin before the election as well. Media loves her. She is a superstar. She's got a new column out called Giving Up On God: There are answers out there. Jesus and Hitler both had an awful lot in common, they both said. I've got an answer, come follow me. Be careful who you follow.


As Republicans sort out the reasons for their defeat, Kathleen writes, they will likely overlook or dismiss the gorilla in the pulpit. Great big problem, G-O-D. I know, I'm bathing in holy water as I type. Oh, Kathleen, what a tough stand, standing up to the establishment. Oh, do you know how hard it must be to stand up against religion in Washington D.C., stand up against religion in the mainstream media. Oh. Anyway, that hard core conservative Kathleen Parker goes on: To be more specific, the evangelical, right-wing, oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict an marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn't soon cometh. Oogedy-boogedy bunch? In other words, your belief in God is the equivalent to belief in monsters under your bed? Is that what you're implying? I mean, it's one thing to be an atheist -- and there are a lot of atheists in the Republican party and that's fine. I don't really care. But someone who is this insulting to religion, what it means to people, the values that it stands for? You are not a conservative. You're Bill Maher.

She continues: Simply put, the armband religion is killing the Republican party and the truth, as long as we're setting ourselves free, is that once if we are to eavesdrop on private conversations among party intelligencia, one would hear precisely that." Really? The intelligencia of the party? Who cares what they think? They are the ones who brought us where we are today, losing elections and flailing around listening to people like Kathleen Parker for direction. The party wins when it preaches conservative values and not from the pulpit. And by the way, I hear far fewer conservative values being preached from pulpit than actual campaigns from the pulpit on the left. You don't need to preach it from the pulpit. You need to do it when you're in office. She says the party has become increasingly beholden to an element that used to be relegated to wooden crates and corners. Oh, yeah, I know those crazy 76% of Americans that are Christian. Man, what outcasts we are. She's right. Sometimes religious people were persecuted for their beliefs, and I believe we are approaching those times again. Please, please, Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans, Mormons, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Richard Gere, everyone, anyone who believes in God, you don't have to worry about the doctrine. We are going into scary, scary territory. "First they came for the Baptists. Because I wasn't a Baptist, I said nothing. Then they came for the Jews and I didn't say anything. Then they came for the Mormons and I didn't say anything." I'm telling you, I am telling you one at a time, we must stand together and wake up. She writes: Short break as a writer ties a blindfold and smokes her last cigarette." I mean, how brave she has for this stance. What a martyr, bashing religion. What a brave soul she is. That's only been done every day in major newspapers in America for the last 50 years. Gosh, someday I hope I could be this brave. Maybe someday I'll start saying not aborting babies is mean or that higher taxes rule or that the Second Amendment is only for hicks and losers. Oh, then maybe the media will like me, too.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

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.
