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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
