Glenn Beck: Who will get Kennedy's seat?

GLENN: I see that Brown in Massachusetts is now -- go ahead. Say it, Pat. Say it

Pat: What? I was --

Glenn: Say it.

Pat: Massachusetts.

Glenn: I hate you. Okay. You say words I can't say.

Pat: Massachusetts. Try it.

Glenn: Massachusetts.

Pat: Massachusetts. Good.

Glenn: All right. Thank you.

Pat: That's good.

Glenn: I don't live there.

Stu: Can you say that?

Glenn: And it's one of the states that I would like to take a star off the flag for. I would like -- if I had a seam ripper, it would be gone.

Pat: They might be just about to show some common sense. Brown now leads over Coakley by 4 percentage points, supposedly.

Glenn: 4 points is not enough. It's got to be now -- in any of these real deep progressive states, you have to have at least a 7 to 10-point lead and here's why: First of all, you can't fudge 7 to 10 percent. If all the polls are showing 7 to 10 percent, if your person loses, you know, that person loses, people will ask questions. If it's within the margin of error, nobody's going to ask any questions and, again, I bring you back to Robert Creamer. If the ends justify the means, if you can embezzle money from banks, if you can defraud people, lie, cheat, steal because it's for a good cause, why would they not lie, cheat, and steal their way to a Senate seat? Why do you not think that these people would steal every single election if they can, because the people are too stupid. They don't know what's best for them. We're trying to help the poor. We're trying to finally get the liberal lion's dream to happen. They will lie, cheat, and steal their way through every single election. 4 points isn't enough. We now have the problem of not being able to trust our elections at all. I mean, I trusted my -- I trusted the elections up until 2000. My problem with the elections, and if anybody wants to go back to the archives, in 2000 I was very, very, very clear. They were trying to steal the election for Al Gore. I lived in Florida. My stance at that time, you want to recount the whole state, recount the whole state, but you can't pick and choose. You can't go in to areas and say, I just want to recount this one. You want to recount the whole state? Recount the whole state, but, of course, they didn't want to do that because they thought they would lose if they did that and they knew they could cheat their way through in West Palm. Well, a it turned out, they weren't able to cheat their way through. Even the New York Times, count after count after count shows that George W. Bush won in that election, unless you recounted the entire state, which is the one thing they didn't want to do and which was my position. If they would have played by the rules, they would have won. They'll lie, cheat, and steal every step of the way and anybody who doesn't think that they wouldn't do that, tell me again, do you have a memory of the people taking off their glasses and looking to try to figure out the intent of the voter? That was the first time that I thought, oh, my gosh, this is a ridiculous system. Then we were supposed to fix it. Why haven't we fixed it? The same reason why we haven't fixed the situation with our visas. Wasn't that the No. 1 problem after 9-11, people overstaying their visas? Has that been fixed? No. Why? Have the voting machines been fixed? No. Why? You can't have confidence. So, now we have no confidence in our system. You can send out in Philadelphia, you can send out thugs, you can send out Panthers and they're not going to -- this government's not going to even investigate, look into that, try them. No. That's not voter intimidation many I don't know about you, America, but I feel pretty comfortable walking into a voting booth with a bunch of Panthers. How about you? I'm as comfortable walking through a crew of Black Panthers as I think any African-American would feel walking through a group of KKK members. Now, do you think we would stop the KKK members from just standing around the entrance of places to vote? You're damn right we would and we should, but we're not going to do that because we're no longer a system and no longer a country of laws. We're now a country of men and I will show you the proof of it when we get to the health care package today. These people, if you look at Coakley and you look at her record, she is a progressive to the extreme. You've got Barnie Frank now in the Senate. You've got yet another Ted Kennedy, but we all accepted Ted Kennedy. For some reason or the other, this country put up with the Kennedys for how long? We've put up with their crime, their corruption, their lies. Why, because they're somehow or the other, they've been legitimized through the distortion of the city on the hill, through the distortion of Camelot. It is the progressive way. Take the truth and distort it and then occupy that. Here's Coakley now and Barack Obama is pulling out all the stops to be able to get her elected. Let me just play a little bit of audio here from Barack Obama. For all the voters in Massachusetts.

Pat: Massachusetts, yes.

Glenn: Massachusetts.

(Audio:)

Obama: Massachusetts cast a resounding vote for change and many of you worked tirelessly to make that happen, knocking on doors, talking to your neighbors, sharing your time and your ideas to help reclaim our government and turn our country in a better and more hopeful direction. We knew the problems we were taking on were formidable and the change in Washington, real change that would turn back the special interests and make the concerns of everyday people the focus of government would not be quick or easy.

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: Stop just a second. First of all, it has been quick. It has been easy for these people. They have changed this country, fundamentally transformed this nation. We are on the edge of losing everything we know. And I don't mean, look, you want to put, you know, new taxes in, you want to, you know, put health care in and you really think that's the thing? That's not what we're even talking about here. We are talking about losing the Constitution, losing the soul of America and having it fall right directly into the hands of special interests. If you don't think that this is special interests that are controlling us, if your liberal friends say, yeah, well, we just want to get the special interests out, you ask them about this deal made for health care yesterday. Big labor got together on the Cadillac tax. Now, that means if you work for an employer that gives you a great deal on your health care -- so, in other words, maybe you're getting paid a little less, maybe you're working in a place you don't even want to work at because you've got such great benefits -- you're going to receive a 40 percent tax on those benefits. Now, you tell me who's going to keep those benefits. You're going to receive a 40 percent tax on your health care, something that Barack Obama said was insane when he was working with John McCain, when he was going across John McCain for the election. He said that would never happen. Well, it's not going to happen if you're in a union. I'll give you the details, coming up in just a second. It was struck yesterday behind closed doors and wait until I tell you who was sitting around the table for 15 hours doing this deal. You tell me it's not about special interests.

Christians are conflicted when it comes to President Donald Trump. Some proudly support him and his policies, while others just can't accept the man behind the boorish language.

Ruth Graham, daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham, joined Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to make a case for the president from a Christian's point-of-view.

On Thursday's radio program ,Glenn interviewed Dr. Karlyn Borysenko, who described what it was like attending a President Trump rally as a Democrat. She told Glenn Beck that crossing party lines is nearly forbidden in liberal circles but she branched out anyway — and learned quite a bit about the other side.

Ryan: Bernie at the airport Holiday Inn

Photo by Sean Ryan

(Part One) . (Part Two). (Part Three).

Some poor guy booked a hotel at the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center in Des Moines on February 3, 2020, assuming it would be a harmless Monday night. Only to find himself in the middle of an overflowing Bernie rally on the night of the caucuses.

For the record, the man was not a Bernie Sanders supporter. Far from it. He popped his head backward when I told him where I work, smiling. Well, grinning, to be precise.

*

After her speech, Klobuchar wandered into the crowd, immediately submerged. Selfies. Everybody wanted them. A minute later, the other candidates began to appear on screen, giving speeches.

"Bernie," asked Justin Robert Young, host of Politics Politics Politics.

"Bernie," I said, and we paced to the car and lurked out onto the depopulated streets and the trenchant cold. But we were both bright with excitement, a couple of detectives. The valet attendants in their satin outfits saw two oddities, and they were right.

Justin Young and I had just left the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for Amy Klobuchar's "Amy for America caucus night party." She gave her speech, in a brilliant maneuver. I skated the Nissan down empty streets, quietly listening to Bernie's speech on the Iowa Public Radio station.

"I love this, what we're about to do," I said, gripping the wheel, words hurried, leaning forward, tapping my left boot. "We're going to hear Bernie talking, then we'll park, then walk through some doors and we will stroll into that very room as Bernie is giving the speech that's being broadcast to millions of people."

It was like how in the game Mario Bros., Mario can jump into giant green storm drains, occasionally. Like leaping into the television and joining the cast.

"There's nobody out on the roads," one of us said. "Holiday Inn, right up there." As broad-winged commercial airplanes floated overhead. We scoured for a parking spot and each second felt wasted. Urgent. We needed to be inside that hotel. But there was nowhere to park. Even the illegal spots were taken. Cars had creviced every inch of parking lot and curb and all that, had even jammed into dark pyramids of sludge.

*

Rita Dove wrote, "I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on."

*

There were so many more journalists press at Bernie's event that the only media spots left were in the overflow room, which itself seemed at capacity. Dank, too. With a heavy vibe, like a sinister library.

The entire hotel exuded gloom. A quietness you hear in locker rooms after a game that should have ended differently.

Bernie supporters, dazed, stomped out into the snow, or to the bathrooms, or just in need of a bit of stomping.

*

Back to Beechwood Lounge, where we watched the Super Bowl a day earlier. Although it felt like a week had passed since then.

Approaching midnight, by that point.

Because Justin consumes politics with an all-encompassing urgency. As if it's a duty. He's clearly studied history and politics for years. Part historian, part political scientist, but also part reporter and part comedian. On one hand, he's guided by the old school approach to journalism. Objectivity. Solemnity. Accuracy.

An American has the right to tell nobody who they voted for. Or maybe it's a cultural thing.

Snow everywhere you look, piles of it full of gas and oil, and rubbish as well. That day was unseasonably warm. The next would plummet us into literal freezing. The kind of day that slows everyone down. With all that ice, you have to be cautious about every step.

Shame is for the uninitiated.

In 1990 Michael Bloomberg's employees created a short book full of crude, sexist, and shocking quotes he allegedly said at work, including one story that has him telling a female employee to "kill it" after she announced she was pregnant. Sadly, that story has him fitting right in with the Democratic party in 2020.

The booklet, titled, 'Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg,' has resurfaced to haunt the Democratic presidential candidate after "The Washington Post" published the full text on Saturday.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn) shared some of the less colorful (many were too lewd to be repeated on radio,) but no less disgusting quotes.
