South Carolina State Senator Dave Thomas. Visit for more information...

GLENN: Do you have the audio of Bob Inglis?

PAT: Yes. Yes, we do.

GLENN: Okay. So the audio of ‑‑ here's Bob Inglis when he said, "Oh, you people at the town halls."

STU: He said "You people" again.

GLENN: Yeah, but he's black. So he can get away with it.

STU: He is? Oh, everybody in Washington. I forgot.

GLENN: He's from Washington. Remember?

STU: Forgot.

GLENN: Everybody from Washington's black. So Bob Inglis, I guess the latest addition to the African‑American community, is speaking here and saying that we tea partygoers, we racists, I guess, need to stop listening to Glenn Beck. Here was the response. It was a quiet response, wasn't it? It was a very, very quiet response. It was almost nothing. There was ‑‑ this is when ‑‑

STU: The acoustics in that room were not good, though. So we don't know ‑‑

GLENN: All right. So here it is. Here it is.

PAT: Hang on just a second.

STU: I mean, I would say keep talking until he gives us the signal.

VOICE: Pat's audio vault.

"Turn Glenn Beck Off" - Bob Inglis (R-SC)

PAT: Are you ready for my audio vault?

GLENN: Ready for the audio.

PAT: Here it is.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: So turn Glenn Beck off.

STU: Popular with the constituents.

PAT: Yeah. They are eating that up.

GLENN: Anyway, it didn't go over well for Bob Inglis. Now Bob Inglis has come out with another fantastic position that I'm behind and that is Joe

WILSON: Son is a bad man and should be punished.

STU: Ee‑vil.

GLENN: Ee‑vil. So in a completely unrelated turn of events, we have South Carolina State Senator Dave Thomas on the phone who is running against Bob Inglis, maybe the second politician today that I come out and endorse. Let's go to Dave. Hello, Dave, how are you?

THOMAS: Glenn, good morning from the fourth congressional district where everybody's wanting to turn Glenn Beck on. But we don't get your radio show. We only see you on Fox, of course.

GLENN: Really?

THOMAS: Yeah. So you are ‑‑

GLENN: So this isn't going to help you.

THOMAS: Well, listen.

GLENN: Maybe I'll just ‑‑ you send me a phone book. I may just call people all day today in your district.

THOMAS: I've served with, I served with Joe in the state Senate for I guess about 14 years, something like that, and he is such a gentleman. If you met Joe and got to know him, you would be ‑‑ anybody would. He is the most genteel fella you ever want to meet in the world. He had really been working this immigration thing in the healthcare bill. So it was emotionally really pent up in him. And I had talked to him about it. He had tried two times to get amendments passed to make sure there were teeth in the legislation to enforce the issue. And, you know, you can have all the stuff you want, Glenn. If you don't have enforcement, it's not there. So when the president says the words that he said and Joe had been working on this thing so hard, you know, he said that's just not true; you lie.

GLENN: Well, here's the ‑‑ I mean, here's the thing. The president was wrong. According to the congressional, what is it, the congressional report that came out, that's wrong. But you don't even have to go there. All you have to do is use logic. Are we going to turn illegal aliens away at the hospital? The answer is... no. So they do get free healthcare. The healthcare that is crippling our hospitals, people without insurance going to the hospital to get care in the emergency room. So they are going to get universal health coverage, is not a reform that's going to take the weight off of our system. Now, here you are, Dave. I didn't know that ‑‑ by the way, any relation to Dave Thomas from Wendy's?

THOMAS: I wish. But unfortunately it's not the case. I'm just ‑‑

GLENN: Because if you had Frosties in your genealogy, man, I would have come out and endorsed you right now.

THOMAS: I'm a chocolate milk shake fanatic, and I like them malted. I don't know about you, but ‑‑

GLENN: Okay, I'm leaning your direction.

THOMAS: Glenn, you know, an interesting thing, let me just quick say it is the case that he said that, turn Glenn Beck off. Now, the thing is there's so many people that are Glenn Beck fans here in the upstate that watch you just faithfully every night, what's the possibility of not necessarily for an endorsement but just to get you here for a rally that would be a ‑‑ and not necessarily a tea party rally. Just get Glenn ‑‑ I want Glenn Beck here in the upstate of ‑‑ now, this is Greenville. This is between Atlanta and Charlotte. It's a big metro area. There are millions of people in this area. And could ‑‑

GLENN: How many of them want to kill me?

THOMAS: None of them.

GLENN: None of them?

THOMAS: This is a conservative ‑‑

GLENN: So will Bob Inglis, he will then be in another part of the country?

THOMAS: He might be peeking over the fence or something.

GLENN: Right.

THOMAS: You know, and I would really like to say if we could get you here, I think we would have 10,000 people show up.

GLENN: Well, I would ‑‑ you know, I would love to, Dave. I would have to look at the schedule. You can talk to my office about that. I would love to go down and do that. Believe me, I would love to go down and make sure that the people in your area don't listen to me or watch me because I'm, of course, Bob Inglis is right, I'm just filling everyone with lies about Van Jones especially. There's no communists anywhere.

Dave, the thing that outrages me is that Bob Inglis, this is what brought me to the table today again on Bob Inglis is why did he vote fortress Lucian yesterday to penalize Joe Wilson? Do you have any idea?

THOMAS: Yes, I do. I read his comments in the Greenville news today and according to him it was a decorum issue, and I reject that. It is not a ‑‑ that's what the Democrats want us to believe it is. But that is simply, that is simply a cloak, and the cloak is Joe Wilson nailed them on the immigration issue. In a completely wrong way, of course, but it was done nationally. And now he brought national attention to the gimmick that was going on with the healthcare plan that would have included illegals, it would have therefore drawn millions of illegals and bankrupted the healthcare system if that bill passes with those provisions in it that would have allowed those, because they had no enforcement. That's what Joe had focused on. And they nailed the Democrats. And a half dozen Republicans that are amnesty supporters like Bob Inglis. Bob Inglis is an amnesty supporter. They are mad at him, therefore. And so they are attacking on that issue and then they said the opportunity to take off on a race issue, too.

GLENN: Well, Dave, best of luck to you. How are you doing in the polls?

THOMAS: In the polls we're doing fine. Bob is, we believe, below 50%. And for an incumbent to be there. Thomas 2010 if you want to read about me, Thomas 2010. Go online and I'd love to have people communicating with me and it's real easy to get in touch with me with my website. So if you've got a contribution you want to give to Joe, it's easy to get him. Just go online there and the same for me, David Thomas for congress, or Thomas 2010. But now remember, I want you here. Glenn Beck here, turn Glenn Beck on. Turn Glenn Beck on.

GLENN: All right. Dave Thomas, David Thomas for congress. It's Thanks, David, I appreciate it.

THOMAS: Thank you, Glenn, bye‑bye.

GLENN: You bet. Bye‑bye.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn's message for all the Trump-haters who have forgotten Trump's accomplishments, or you can read Glenn's list HERE:

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
