Glenn Beck: $300 million bribe


Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Let me talk to you about Mary Landrieu. Mary Landrieu is the senator from Louisiana, and she got $100 million ‑‑ explain this, Pat.

PAT: She got ‑‑ there's an article in this new healthcare bill in the Senate version that specifies that any state that's been declared a major emergency or a major disaster area for each of the last seven years and fits several other criteria, like they have a state capitol that's two words in the name.

GLENN: That doesn't really say that, does it?

PAT: Like Baton Rouge. No, I mean, it's not quite that. But it's almost that specific. I mean, it takes like three seconds to determine that Louisiana is the only one.

GLENN: Right. It's three pages. This definition is three pages.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So you know when they're defining this, they had to define it in three pages.

PAT: Otherwise they're going to give it to how many states?

GLENN: Right. So it had to be very carefully designed. But if you thought you weren't doing anything wrong, you would have just said Louisiana, okay? So if you ‑‑ it takes really one word. Well, $300 million grant, for, one word, Louisiana.

PAT: Louisiana.

GLENN: But instead they knew that this was a bribe. They knew this was wrong. So they had to cover it in three pages by defining it very specifically without ever saying the one word: Louisiana. This is a bribe. That's all it is.

PAT: Because Mary Landrieu was on the fence. She was maybe not going to vote for even cloture and so it was reported to be $100 million on Friday and reporters were asking her about this financial fix for Louisiana that got her vote. And she said, I'm not going to be defensive about this, and it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix. So she was so arrogant about it that she told them it was triple the bribe. So she may be easy.

GLENN: But she's not cheap.

PAT: But she's not cheap. So I think that's ‑‑ at least that's what I take from that.

GLENN: We're with a high‑class prostitute. That's what we're with.

STU: Right. It's certainly ‑‑

PAT: No, you are not at Motel 6 with this ‑‑

GLENN: No. You are not sitting there in a back alley and saying, "Hey, what do you say, five bucks?" No, no, no. This one comes to your Four Seasons hotel room.

STU: Yeah, and you know what?

GLENN: And does it right.

STU: And doesn't dress really slutty.

PAT: You might even think she's the wife of the CEO she's coming in on.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: You know?

GLENN: There's nobody that's going to look at her and go, oh, my gosh, you're with a whore.

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: You are going to look at her and say, "Oh, wow.

PAT: She's classy.

GLENN: Look at that. And then when somebody whispers, she's a prostitute.

PAT: But you think, okay, but she's not cheap.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: You'll dismiss it because it's like, well, yeah, but she's not getting 20 bucks an hour, right? She's getting 1,000 bucks, 1,000 bucks for the night.

GLENN: She's the one when you say, you're a hooker! You're like, you know, having sex for 100 bucks. She says, it's not 100 bucks. It's $5,000!

PAT: Yeah. And then you respect her. Then you're like, oh, okay.

STU: It's the type of high‑class prostitute that actually purchases a wedding ring so when she's walking through the plaza, people think that she's actually married to the person she's walking in with. That's what we're talking about.

PAT: That's how classy she is.

STU: You don't sell your principles for $50 on the street corner. No, no, no 300 million in a three‑Page definition. That's the way you sell your principles.

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: That's right, they did sell their principles.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
