Glenn Beck: Dems in Desperation

GLENN: Did you see, by the way, that this show is under fire today because we're using a clip from Martin Luther King there, now is the time. As if the left owns Martin Luther King's ideas. As if Martin Luther King's idea of "I have a dream, now is the time to make that dream," don't see people for the color of their skin but the content of their character as if the left owns that idea.

PAT: Not only do they not own it, we don't even understand it.

GLENN: They don't even understand it. It is incredible to me how. It is incredible for somehow or another I am under fire for right before Martin Luther King Day Glenn Beck comes out and uses Martin Luther King's words. Oh, the humanity, unbelievable. This brings me to what I believe is coming our way. John is now among three prominent Democrats not planning to run again. Christopher Dodd is leaving. How many of these Democrats are jumping ship because they see that it's on fire? The strategy is, for the Democrats, to do a couple of things. One I explained last hour and that is get rid of the faces that everybody says that guy's part of the problem, at least in districts where, you know, they haven't gerrymandered the thing so much and especially in the House where they haven't like, for instance, Barney Frank will never, ever leave. If you look at how they gerrymandered his district, he doesn't have to worry about anything. It's almost saying you, you're in Barney Frank's district but your wife lives in the same house, she's not. It's almost like splitting the beds, you know, the kitchens and the bathrooms in half if the family disagrees on Barney Frank. And there's a lot of these people on both the left and the right that are like that. But where they can't control the districts like this, where you've got Chris Dodd as senator, you've got problems. And these people have to go away for the good of the party. They've been good and loyal servants, but they need another good and loyal servant, and the party needs to reinvent itself without reinventing itself. It needs an image change because Barack Obama has destroyed the Democratic Party.

Can you imagine if George Bush was coming into his first year, after his first year in office with numbers like this with Republicans just jumping ship, I mean long term iconic Republicans jumping ship. Can you imagine what the press would be saying about the damage done by this president and his policies? You don't hear that. You don't hear that the Democratic Party is being decimated. And it is. But don't worry. They have a two part plan. One, ask those people to step aside because as I lined out for you, laid up for you last hour, there's a poll that came out about a month ago that shows that Republican voters want to vote for somebody, and this is the same with independents, they want to vote for somebody who has their ideals and agrees with them ethically and morally and in their approach to life. Republican voters want to vote for somebody, and this is the same with independents. They want to vote for somebody who has their ideals and agrees with them ethically and morally and in the their approach to life. Even if it means they lose. Democrats are cut from a different cloth. They just want to win. That speaks volumes. So that's the strategy of the Democratic Party: Win. Chris Dodd, step down, let somebody else, to quote Mark Lloyd, somebody's got to ask themselves who can step down so somebody else can have a turn. Richard Blumenthal is that answer and they're hoping that you won't notice that the party hasn't changed. It's the same thing, just a different face. Well, a different face doesn't you know what? It is another example of the progressive movement. They gave you the choice between Barack Obama and John McCain. In many ways they're the same person. They're just going to take you there slower. You know, John McCain is just going to take you to the same destination just a lot slower. Barack Obama's hyperspeed. I'm tired of those choices, and that's what the Democrats are going to give you now. Well, no, no, no, we're giving you a fresh face. That Chris Dodd, he's gone now. All right.

Here's the second piece of this puzzle. And I want to get out in front of it now because to quote Martin Luther King, now is the time. Here's what's going to happen. I believe Rahm Emanuel has gotten together with Gutierrez? Is that from Illinois? Is that the

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Okay. He's the guy who's going to be writing the new immigration bill. The new immigration bill I believe is going to be just outrageous. I have no idea, but I would imagine that they're going to make it outrageous because this is the only thing they have left. They had global warming and we were Holocaust deniers. But global warming, I mean, have you checked the thermometer lately? Global warming nobody buys anymore. And the pushback on Al Gore, that thing is collapsing and it's collapsing fast. Do you notice in the last, in the last six months when Al Gore would speak, people would shout him down or they would push back? Reporters were even beginning to push back. That global warming thing is falling apart. So they can't shut down debate anymore and they're losing on that. You can't call, you can't call us Holocaust deniers anymore. Flat earthers. Because we're on to you. Healthcare? They called us all kinds of names for healthcare. But they haven't really used their most powerful card. But what they think is the most powerful card will be their undoing. But it is going to be a battle to the death, I believe. You just have to know which one is playing.

Here's what's going to happen. They're going to make the healthcare bill come out and they are going to redesign it. They are going to redesign this thing. I don't know how, but they're going to come out and they're going to make sure that it is absolutely insulting for people who believe in the rule of law but they are going to cloak it in just this mother and child sort of friendly wonderful, happy families just like you kind of nonsense. I'm sure those people are families just like me and you except my family came here legally. Here's what they're going to do. They are going to make this about race. And they have already smeared Fox and said Fox is not even a news organization, Glenn Beck is this and that. But they are going to make this into race. Anything that they can do to make it into race, to cry racist from the top of their lungs. Unfortunately they are going to fail at that because people, the game, the paradigm has changed and the only ones that don't understand it are them. And maybe we're too late to the game and they just, they know something that I don't know. Maybe they have already put the structure in place that is so strong that it doesn't matter to them anymore because they know how the game ends, with them in power in a transformed America. Maybe it does in their world end that way, but believe me that only makes things much, much worse for them because Americans are not Soviets. We won't live under that kind of rule. They don't understand that the paradigm is changed. They have pushed Americans to the wall. And Americans are good people. I personally want I agree with Bill Gates. I want it easier for companies and for people who are coming over here and they are the brightest minds. They are the strongest people in their home country. I want them coming here. Bill Gates begged George W. Bush, make it easier for people to get a certain kind of visa. I was with him on that. He was saying we're losing all of the best and brightest talent to other countries. I fought with him on that! We talked about it on this program! SEIU has, we have audio of SEIU where they are talking about their membership here in the United States is not just Mexicans who are from overseas but they're Europeans. They are Irish, they are English, they're Italians, they're Russians, they're Chinese. I mean, he's talking about all of them. Well, that doesn't there's no race there. What, I have a problem against people who are German? I come from German descent. Have a problem with Italians? My wife is Italian. It's not Mexico. It's not the color of your skin, to quote Martin Luther King. It's the content of your character. And I'm sorry, but you don't have the great content of character if you are intentionally breaking the law currently and you say, make special exceptions for me. This is going to turn into a race baiting contest. Because they need to energize their own base. Because the uber left has really kind of been lost. So what do they do to energize it? You've got to give them red meat and global warming ain't it now. What you do is you infuse millions of new voters by making them legal and at the same time you point the finger at your opposition and you cry "Racist!" Sometimes the racist charge needs to be looked at. Other times it's just a game. Watch for it. It's coming.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
