Glenn Beck: Specter insults Bachmann




Audio from the Dom Giordano Program (1210 WPHT Philadelphia)

Glenn: I mean, what is up with Arlen Specter?

Pat: The same thing that always is.

Glenn: No, no, no, no.

Pat: You don't think?

Glenn: No.

Pat: This is new? This is new for Arlen?

Glenn: Do you think?

Pat: No. I think it's business as usual many. Think Arlen is really angry. I think he's been angry for a long time. He sounds angry here. Play the angry old man.

Glenn: This is Arlen Specter on the Dom Giordano show on Big Talker 1210 in Philadelphia, our affiliate in Philadelphia, and I mean, those that support Dom, Dom is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and I was, like, Wait, wait, but hang on. This is Arlen Specter addressing Michelle Bachmann

(Both talking.)

Specter: I didn't interrupt you. I didn't interrupt you. Will you stop interrupting?

Bachmann: Well, you asked me a question and I'm a job creator

Specter: I didn't interrupt you. This is beginning to sound like a TV talk show. I asked you what you voted for and you didn't say anything because ‑‑

Bachmann: I voted for prosperity.

Specter: Well, now. Wait a minute. I'll stop and you can talk.

Bachmann: Okay.

Specter: I'll treat you like a lady. So, act like one.

Bachmann: I am a lady.

Specter: What I asked you is what did you vote for

Bachmann: I voted for prosperity. I didn't vote for the government takeover of private industry, whether it's in health care or whether it's government heaping debt upon us that we ‑‑ our children have no possibility of paying back without a radically reduced standard of living. I'm a Federal tax litigation attorney. My husband and I have created 50 jobs. We're not a big deal, but we created 50 jobs and the Obama administration, less than 7 percent of the people in the administration have any private sector experience many that's why every answer is more government. The people don't want more government.

Voice: Okay. Congresswoman, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Senator Arlen Specter here on the Big Talker 1210.

Specter: She said I voted for prosperity. Well, prosperity wasn't a bill, was it?

Bachmann: Well, why don't we make it a bill?

Specter: Don't interrupt me. I didn't interrupt you. Act like a lady.

Bachmann: I think I am a lady.

Voice: I think she is, too.

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: He did it twice.

Pat: Act like a lady. Get back in the kitchen. Get me a sandwich. Get me a beer.

Glenn: (Mumbling.) Put a ribbon in your hair.

Pat: Put on something slinky and get me a beer. Get in my bed.

Glenn: Listen to his logic.

Pat: She says that prosperity is ‑‑ she voted for that. It's not a bill.

Glenn: Prosperity will never come from a bill in Congress.

Pat: That's for sure.

Glenn: Ever. I mean, listen. His idea is, well, we want prosperity; then we should have a bill. You don't create prosperity. You shut it down.

Stu: I like his solution, too, if we just had a bill called prosperity, then we would have prosperity, like that's not how is works, dude. I know ‑‑ I don't know ‑‑ no offense, but, I mean, I think the point is that when the government gets out of your way prosperity can be created, but created ‑‑ it's not going to be just because you name a bill prosperity, does not just magically appear.

Pat: I agree with him, now, he didn't leave the Republican party. He left sanity. He's insane now.

Glenn: Why was he debating Michelle Barack Obama man? Philadelphia?

Stu: I feel Dom on Dom time put that together. So, I mean, they were ‑‑

Glenn: Genius, Dom.

Stu: Yeah. It's great.

Glenn: I don't know why Arlen Specter agreed to do that. I mean, you're going to lose.

Pat: He's in trouble and this helped him a lot.

Glenn: Can I hear the rest of ‑‑ what did he say after he said the second time?

Pat: Pretty much (mumbling.) We can't go back and play the whole thing right now.

Stu: Maybe we just have Pat recreate it because that's probably a better ‑‑

Glenn: I mean, go ahead and play this whole thing many I didn't know he said it twice.

Specter: Wait a minute. I didn't interrupt you. I didn't interrupt you.

Pat: I'm interrupting you now, though.

Bachmann: Well, you asked me a question and I'm a job creator

Specter: This is beginning to sound like a TV talk show.

Glenn: Okay. Stop just a second.

Pat: This is starting to sound like some of those things on the boxes with the magic pictures that people have in their living rooms now. What do you call them? The evil magic boxes, the flickering lights.

Glenn: I mean, doesn't he sound like he sounds completely ‑‑

Pat: A talk show.

Glenn: It is a talk show.

Stu: You're on a show right now, dude, please.

Glenn: It's called the big talker.

Pat: You mean it's not the box in my living room with the pictures, is it?

Glenn: No, it's not a picture show

Pat: What kind of show is it in.

Glenn: Arlen Specter, that's a good question. We should ask him, Mr. Specter ‑‑

Stu: Radio, have you heard of it?

Glenn: Yeah. Do you refer to things on film, you know, where you go and watch them, like, starring Tom Hanks, do you call those picture shows and do you see them at the movie house, because that's what he sounds like.

Pat: Act like a lady here. Go ahead and play that.

What you voted for and you didn't say anything because ‑‑

Bachmann: I voted for prosperity.

Specter: Well, now. Wait a minute. I'll stop and you can talk.

Bachmann: Okay.

Specter: I'll treat you like a lady. So, act like one.

Glenn: Hang on just a second. Do you remember, do you remember the way the press made a huge deal out of what's his face walking up to Hillary Clinton?

Stu: Rick Lazio.

Glenn: Yeah. Do you remember that? And it was, like, and then he threw her down and assaulted her. It was almost a rape scene. I mean, they ‑‑ we practically had caution tape on the stage when that happened and it was an uncomfortable moment, but I don't think Rick Lazio are said, act like a lady. Oh, my gosh. What a ‑‑

Stu: Oh, wait a minute. I just realized, we have just been joking about Arlen Specter. Where are the complaint calls? I don't see them anywhere. It's so bizarre.

Pat: Oh, boy.

Stu: He was a Republican three months ago.

Pat: I'll tell you another thing, it wasn't funny. It was just weird. It was just weird that you would make fun of a former Republican.

Glenn: Well, he may be a Republican again. He's safe to do it now.

Stu: Is he?

Glenn: But if he comes back and he has a chance of winning, then he ‑‑

Stu: All the blogs will go crazy.

Glenn: But now he's a Democrat and so it's okay to bash him. By the way, can you see if you can get Michelle Bachmann on the phone?

Pat: I can do that.

Glenn: She might be at a nail place center or someplace.

Stu: That's a Republican. You should never say that!

Pat: Treat her like a Republican, Glenn Beck. Will you? Don't joke about her.

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.
