Momma McCain

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Now, maybe it's because I am stupid that I don't understand the new John McCain strategy of hauling his mother out. Do we have the audio of John McCain? Here's the audio of John McCain and his mom.

VOICE: So you don't think Romney's done it -- I heard it all. You don't think Romney's done much heavy lifting for America then.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Is that John McCain's grandfather?

STU: It's Chris Matthews.

GLENN: Oh, it's Chris Matthews, good.

VOICE: No, I don't. I think Senator, con man, whatever it was, a governor for four years. And as far as the Salt Lake City thing, he's a Mormon and the Mormons of Salt Lake City caused that scandal. And to clean that up, it's not even, again, it's not a subject.



RELATED STORY


McCain's Mom on Mormons


John McCain's 95-year-old mother, in a swipe at her son's rival Mitt Romney, said Friday that Mormons were to blame for the scandal that rocked the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

VOICE: The views of my mother are not necessarily the views of mine (laughter.)

GLENN: (Laughing.) Oh, Mom. Oh, I'm never going to let you out of the home again. (Laughing.) "What was I thinking? Oh, man. 95 years old. I just want everybody to know, 95." She thinks that Archie Bunker is a little liberal. I'm just saying. What, what are you doing? Give me the response one more time? John, what are you thinking, man? Do you have it?

VOICE: So you don't think Romney's done it. I heard it all. You don't think Romney's done much heavy lifting for America then?

VOICE: No, I don't. I think big Senator, congressman, whatever it was, a governor for four years and as far as --

GLENN: Stop, stop. Stop. This is where John McCain starts to sweat. Oh, boy. Mom's like -- you know, he was a senator or he was a something. John McCain's like, oh, boy, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, shhh, shhh. He's starting to sweat there. Then -- and as far as this Mormon thing...

VOICE: And he's a Mormon and the Mormons of Salt Lake City had caused that scandal and to clean that up, I'd -- it's not even, again, it's not a subject.

VOICE: The views of my mother are not necessarily the views of mine.

GLENN: Stop, stop! Oh, Chris, you're covering! If we just laugh really hard, it might cover up this awkwardness here (laughing.) Who's uncomfortable? How far are we to a commercial break? (Laughing.) "Oh, dear God, help me." Now, he did come out, John McCain did come out and say, the views of my 95-year-old mother. And you know he said it just that way. "The views of my 95-year-old mother." And then he says also that what she really meant, the views of my 95-year-old mother. What she meant was that the Olympics were screwed up by people in Salt Lake City and then Romney came in and fixed the problem. So wait. She was complimenting him? It was a gushing compliment? Oh, that thing was so screwed up? And then I mean, basically what he's saying is, Mom came out with an endorsement for Mitt Romney. "I don't know why you're looking at my boy. He's -- have you heard about the McCain Feingold thing? I called him up and I said, I've been eating tapioca pudding for 25 years now and even I know this is screwed up. That's why I'm voting for Mitt Romney."

That's not what she meant! When did we start -- I'm sorry, but I have a little problem with Mom doing the endorsement. I mean, first of all John McCain's like 100 years old. Wasn't he born in, like, 1907? So his mom would have been born, what, 1887? She's like 120? I mean, it doesn't even seem possible that John McCain's mom is still alive, but God bless her.

Now, I know it's crazy to have her on, you know, saying something that's, you know, reminiscent of 1924 social standards, but you've got to, again, question John McCain's judgment on this one. "No, I think it's a good idea; let's have my mom on TV. No, I think she should go stumping with me. She's 95. Yeah, sure, people will love her." I don't think so. I mean, letting your mom, you know, who's 95 years old talk politics on live TV. Can anyone say damage control? Is that not the first thing? Wait a minute. Live television? 95-year-old talking about politics. Yeah, I don't -- I think that's a bet I'm not going to take, John. I don't think we should put the whole chip down on that one.

So I don't know. Maybe it was a court order to exhume her body and put her on? I don't know. I don't know how that happened, but jeez, man. You should be thanking your lucky stars today, John McCain, that the interviewer didn't ask her to comment on Barack Obama's campaign. I don't think any of us want our grandparents talking about Barack Obama on television. I'm just saying. Do you remember your grandparents when they thought they were giving, you know, compliments out? "You know those black people aren't so bad." Okay, grandpa, shhh, we don't say that, that's not good, we all know they're not so bad, grandpa." "They don't smell like popcorn." "Of course they don't, but you do, grandpa, for some unexplained reason you smell like popcorn. Maybe that's why you shouldn't be speaking anymore."

Do you remember our grandparents, how they were Archie Bunker? They were Archie Bunker. Well, no, they weren't Archie Bunker. Archie Bunker meant it. At least my grandfather, God bless him, he really, he didn't know. Was your grandparents like that? Stu, you're a lot younger than me. Was your -- were your grandparents still in that transition period to where they went through the Sixties and they were -- you know, they had already -- you know, they were 40 in the Sixties?

STU: No, I never got any of that from my grandparents, no, thank God.

GLENN: You've got to -- I mean, God bless them. They were in that transitional period and so the whole world changed on them and they were like, yeah, I like that Martin Luther King boy. He's a good man. I like him, for a black man. You're like, "Grandpa, no, what are you doing?"

STU: It's okay. Just say you like him.

GLENN: Just say you like him. You don't need to qualify him. That's his whole point, you don't notice the color thing. "But you do, you notice." Okay, grandpa, no. You know, that's why my grandfather took his tractor, and I'm not kidding you, through the plate glass window at a Denny's restaurant shortly thereafter. I mean, you know, we took the keys away and I wouldn't make it -- you know, I wouldn't allow grandpa to give political speeches if I happen to be John McCain. I'm just saying. You know, you try to get great grandma to, you know, start using e-mail or teach the kids how to can or, you know, not be a racist. That's what you should be doing, you know, with the grandparents. I'm -- you know, it's like putting -- it's like asking Britney Spears to put clothes on, you know? Really good chance that it's never going to happen. What the heck. Give it a whirl. Give it a shot.

I think there's something -- I think there's some gene in us. You know, we have an adaptation gene where we can adapt to things. I think that pretty much shuts off at about 75, you know? I mean, it's like, not going to adapt anymore, hmmm? I just can do it, don't want to, just can't, you know. Yeah, to get into the house now, you don't have a key anymore, you have to have a touch pad and they scan your fingerprint. I think I'll just sleep out here on porch.

You know, old people would be the first ones to get shot if the PC police had guns. You know, PC police come (knocking). "PC police, open up." When you're 95, you could die at any moment and so, you know, part of it is they don't adapt anymore, things have so much -- they have been adapting for 95 years. They just, you know -- and they also know the next breath could be the last. So why not go out with a bang, you know? When they're confronted with eminent death, not going to censor what they say. I mean, that's why terrorists don't kidnap 95-year-olds. You never see a 95-year-old there with somebody behind them, you know, in a black mask with a machete because the old guy would be like, "you're all a bunch of losers." And, you know, that's the way it would go. They are not going to be looking at the camera. They would be like, whatever.

You know, they have two options. Youth would say, "I understand your plight, Mr. Freedom fighter, and the United States, boy, they suck, huh?" A 95's going to say, "My blood vessels are riddled with bacon bits. Have fun with that, dirtbag." I mean, am I wrong? So John, maybe it's just me. Doesn't make me want to vote for you more. And not even that, you know, what mom said. Because mom's mom. I get it. She's 95. I don't think you're a racist or, you know, you're anti-Mormon because she is. She's 95 and you're, I don't know, 87. So -- I don't know. Just another sign yet of just really bad judgment. And I mean, is this the first time? Has anybody else seen this, where they're bringing mom out? "Here, I want you to talk to Mom." And it's like, "And I laid out his underpants for him, too, earlier today and they are all clean. I starched them to, Johnny." I don't think I want a President that has mom in the back going, hey. Maybe it's just me.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
