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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
