Caller: Rep Grayson kicked me out



Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Let's go to Beth. Hello, Beth, you're on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hi, how are you?

GLENN: I'm good, how are you?

CALLER: I'm fine. I know that you're coming to the Villages in Florida, and I plan on seeing you.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: And I hope I can get you to autograph my book Arguing With Idiots because I think I'm an expert now. I actually spoke with Alan Grayson, and he left the room.

GLENN: What happened?

STU: Wow.

GLENN: What happened?

CALLER: Well, it was rather interesting. I had been to Washington D.C. on September the 12th, and I also came back on November the 5th. And usually do not catch the congressmen in their offices. Usually just leave a note and if you want to, you leave a letter, you sign in on a log. And while I was there, he just happened to come inside the room, and I think it was a staged situation because he had two or three gentlemen there that worked for him with cameras. And he asked how he could help and I said, I would like to talk to him about the healthcare bill. So he was very nice in the beginning and he sat down to go over the healthcare bill with me, and the first thing he wanted to do I actually invited several people in from the hallway because they were looking into the room and did not know what was going on and I told them they could come in, also. And he wanted to start off the conversation with what the government would be giving us, and he used the word "Giving" at least three times. And I told him that the government was not giving us anything, that the taxpayers were paying for it. He wanted to tell me I was wrong.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: How wait, wait, wait. How were you wrong? The taxpayers are paying for it.

CALLER: He said that

GLENN: Who is paying for it? Magic fairy money pulling it out of Barney Frank's pants?

CALLER: Probably from what they've already looted us out of money anyway.

GLENN: You know, the American taxpayers' wallets are almost empty. I guess we should start going after maybe Charlie Rangel's pants.

PAT: Does he not understand the concept that deficit neutral, I mean, even if you buy into that concept, it's not the same as nobody pays. It costs $1.3 trillion. Somebody pays.

CALLER: He told myself and the other people in the room that it would pay for itself within ten years.

GLENN: Really? Does it have a job?

CALLER: (Laughing). And he also wanted to say that the pharmaceutical companies would be paying for it. And again I told him that wasn't the case. Well, he switched gears to shut me up. So when I got another chance to ask him and thank God for you and people out there that put information out about the healthcare bill and everything else that's going on. You're educating us.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: And I just happened to have a list, a reading guide to Pelosi's health reform bill, and it had the page numbers and the situations going on with it.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: So I then asked him about illegal immigrants being covered. And he said that on Page 642 it stated that illegal immigrants would not be covered. And when I asked him if everybody would be IDed when they went in for healthcare, he said of course not. So I stated then they will be covered. Again he switched gears. The final thing that I asked that set him off and caused him just to go crazy was whenever I asked about the healthcare coverage and congress being covered by it. And I asked him if he and his family would have the same exact healthcare coverage that they were expecting the rest of the Americans to have. He started spinning the truth and he said that he is already covered with what you people consider socialized medicine and will be. When I caught him spinning the truth, I asked him the question again, and I was very, very specific in what I asked, and I made sure I asked him the exact same coverage, without the public option. And he said yes. So I asked him if he would mind signing the back of a piece of paper. I flipped my notes over, asked him if he would write that out and put it, sign his name to it. He went crazy. He demanded that I leave his office, started screaming and yelling at me.

GLENN: Good for you.

CALLER: And yes. But I did question with boldness. Thank you for that. And I said I didn't deserve to leave because I didn't do anything but ask a question. He told me that I would either leave or he would leave. He got up and left the room and slammed the door on us all.

GLENN: Wow.

CALLER: And when he came back home, checked his website, he had a note to people about Grayson welcomes healthcare protestors. He claimed that we all became unruly and threatening and even said he got a death threat which did not happen.

GLENN: You know what? I have to tell you it is unbelievable. You know, Barack Obama's arm, political arm said those very things, that they have been physically threatened, they have been physically threatened and even roughed up. I'd like to see where they have been roughed up. Show me that evidence. And if you want to see threats, you want to see death threats? I invite you, White House, to read my mail.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."
