Glenn Beck: Arlen Specter continues to suck




Protestor Interrupts Spector Town Hall Meeting

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Earlier today Arlen Specter had a healthcare event and it was wonderful. Stu I'm trying to do Pat's Arlen Specter.

GLENN: Yeah, do your little, that there was a little confrontation there, Pat.

PAT: Well, there was a little confrontation (mumbling).

GLENN: How long did it take you to get Arlen Specter down like that?

PAT: About 15 seconds, Glenn. (Mumbling). Just put your tongue way back in your mouth.

GLENN: Hang on a second.

PAT: Then you kind of make your mouth big and fat.

GLENN: It really doesn't sound like doesn't sound like it. It doesn't work.

PAT: Then you need a little bit of rasp in your voice. And you know that he's... (mumbling).

STU: Interesting.

GLENN: Here we go. Here's a little bit from the town hall.

STU: Yeah, we should explain. There's a town hall meeting. There is a guy that rises up. He is against Obamacare and he's getting pretty fired up here and as you'll hear, there's a little bit of a confrontation with another person who apparently is for Obamacare, tries to stop him from speaking and then a confrontation ensues from there.

GLENN: Okay. Here we go.

SPECTER: You want to be let out of here, you're welcome to go. Now wait a minute, now wait a minute. Now wait a minute. Now wait a minute. Wait, wait a minute. Wait a minute.

VOICE: I have right to

SPECTER: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. He has a right to leave. He is right. Wait a minute, wait a minute.

GLENN: I mean, so far Arlen Specter has made a very good point so far. He has really... "Wait a minute, wait a minute."

PAT: Wait a minute action wait a minute.

GLENN: I don't understand. Is he saying he has a constitutional right to leave? So in other words he is saying I'm not holding you hostage? Is that what he's saying?

STU: Yeah. And he's saying if there's a minute, you should wait through it.

GLENN: All right. Go ahead.

SPECTER: Wait a minute. You want to leave? Leave.


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

VOICE: I am going to speak my mind before I leave because your people told me I could. I called your office and I was told I could have the mic to speak. And then I was lied to because I came prepared to speak and instead you wouldn't let anybody speak. You handed out, what, 30 cards? Well, I got news for you. You and your cronies in the government do this kind of stuff all the time. Well... (applause)... I don't care, I don't care how much, I'm not a lobbyist with all kind of money to stuff it in your pocket so that you can cheat the citizens of this country. So I'll leave. And you can do whatever the hell you please to do. One day God's going to stand before you and he's going to judge you.

PAT: It should be the other way around.

VOICE: Your cronies up on the hill.

GLENN: Hold on a second. There's a little controversy brewing in the studio. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. There's a controversy.

STU: What's the

GLENN: There's a controversy here.

STU: People can call in now.

GLENN: What's the controversy?

PAT: I'm thinking that the guy is going to stand that Specter will stand before God, not the other way around.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait, just wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I believe you don't understand who Arlen Specter is.

STU: Well, I just want to say that

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Barack Obama may only have planet like powers like his own gravitational field, but Arlen Specter, when he gets up, the Lord will say, "Oh, Arlen, it's not, I didn't realize oh, you're back. I here, I think this is your seat. I've just been keeping it warm." Now, can we not at least come together on things like that, that the government, the servants, if you will, are truly the master?

STU: Sure, I think so.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: If you don't mind, I'm just going to leave here and go to the bathroom.

GLENN: No, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

STU: I have to go.

GLENN: He has a constitutional right to go to the bathroom.

STU: I know, I'm just going to tinkle and I just would like to

GLENN: Wait a minute. You have a constitutional right to tinkle.

STU: Okay, I appreciate you

GLENN: Now, is there something you want to say before you go tinkle or you are just being

STU: Well, I was told that I was able to speak on this program.

GLENN: Who told you these things?

STU: Well, your people, they told me that on a piece of paper.

GLENN: I don't have people. I don't have people. Why are you abusing the elderly like this? Why you and your angry mob come into my studio and then want to pee all over my studio, your words, not mine, and then

STU: I didn't say that.

GLENN: And then call us liars? Why the hatred?

STU: But I'm a somewhat elderly gentleman with a piece of paper and I don't think that

GLENN: See, this is the thing they don't understand. They just don't understand in Washington. You could hear it in that man's voice. He has been so disenfranchised. "You go do whatever it is you're going to do." That was the key. This was the turning point. Remember I told you I think it was about a year or so ago. I said study the Weimar Republic. Study the Weimar Republic. What I learned in my study of the Weimar Republic is, well, two things well, three things, a lot of things, you know, like Germans, boy, they screw things up an awful lot. That's kind of a big umbrella. But also, you know, "Hey, let's not print our own money." But the most important thing I learned well, I can't say it's the most important thing. "Germans screw things up a lot" maybe the most important thing. That, and never get the Germans and the Italians together. Bad.

One of the things I learned was once the people feel like they don't make a difference and that they whatever they do won't affect their own life, that's when you get into real trouble. That's when you get into real danger. Don't you believe it. Don't you let anybody around you believe it. I'm telling you there is great hope for this country. I am telling you that there is great the Constitution will survive. Those who come against the Constitution, it will not last. The Constitution will survive. Americans will not only survive but they will thrive and they will be free. When America wakes up to God, when America wakes up and says, "Oh, I remember the order here; oh, I know we can't have everything for free; oh, there is such a thing called personal responsibility," that's when we'll say to somebody who says, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, we'll say, now we're done waiting; get the hell out.

STU: That's a very interesting point, Glenn.

GLENN: I don't know why the

STU: It's because we have a hard break here. We have a hard break. We should probably

GLENN: Is that what it is?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Maybe you should talk a little bit longer, Glenn.

GLENN: That was such a good place to end it.

PAT: I agree. It would have been nice to end about 10 minutes ago before you started babbling. But you do have the right to continue to speak until the break is here.

STU: Well, I think the truth is, Glenn, you wanted to leave but then we needed to tell you wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

PAT: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You and your paid political advisors sending me down here with all kinds of cash in your pocket to start hassling me, subverting the Democratic process. I won't have it. I won't stand for it.

GLENN: Can I ask you something? If we start not shaving our armpits, women, and everybody start passing out flowers, can we start being called the mob? Is that what it takes?

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
