Glenn takes no prisoners at CPAC



Video: Glenn at CPAC

CALLER: Thanks, Glenn. You know what? Is that speech as CPAC, it was inspiring. I was cheering at home with my family. I mean, we were actually, I was giving you a standing ovation at times. It was the most amazing speech I've seen from CPAC since Ronald Reagan was there.

GLENN: Thank you, thank you. I what a compliment that is. You know, that was the other reason that I was so nervous about it is I'm a huge Reagan fan. No matter what was printed in USA Today Weekend, did you see this? That apparently I said to this reporter I can't imagine what context I said this in that Ronald Reagan wasn't even a Republican. Unless I said that in the context of, he wasn't a Republican like we know them, he wasn't a progressive Republican, I don't know what context I said that in. But, you know, for Ronald Reagan to give that speech twelve times and then for me to be asked to give it, it was, I don't know, I just felt a real sense of responsibility.

Here's some of the by the way, if you didn't see it, you can see it at GlennBeck.com. Here's some of the pieces. This is where I think William Bennett took umbrage to which was the morning in America. He said this was, this was disheartening, this was disheartening to describe Morning in America like this. Here it is.

GLENN: It is still Morning in America. It just happens to be kind of a head pounding, hung over vomiting for four hours kind of morning in America. And it's shaping up to be kind of a nasty day, but it's still Morning in America!

Now, the reason why I said that, the very next line was, so what made us down on our knees vomiting in the toilet bowl? What was it? What was the poison that made us feel this way? And it was tax and spend. Progressivism. Now, how is that, how is that a downer? That's called the truth. And if you would have watched the entire speech, I think you would have the ending, somebody told me, wow, what an inspiring speech, you know, I didn't get to see the last 15, 20 minutes. You didn't get to see the last 15, 20 minutes? That's the best part. That's where it all ties together.

Then I talked a little bit about Dick Cheney and what he said. Cut 2, please.

It's going to be a very good year, but it's not enough just to not suck as much as the other side. (Applause). I'm a I'm a recovering alcoholic. I'm a recovering alcoholic, and I screwed up my life six ways to Sunday, and I believe in redemption, but the first step to getting redemption is you've got to admit you've got a problem. (Amens). I have not heard people in the Republican Party yet admit they have a problem. And when they do say they have a problem, I don't know if I believe them. I haven't seen the "Come to Jesus" moment of the Republican Party yet. I voted Republican almost every time I've gone. I don't know what they even stand for anymore. And they've got to recognize that they have a problem. Hello! My name is the Republican Party and I got a problem! I'm addicted to spending and big government! (Applause)

GLENN: It I mean, it is strange the way the press is treating this speech. They either are ignoring it which, you know, that's fine, but I don't think that's for no reason because when it first happened, I saw all of the press right away and none of even the New York Times didn't have anything bad to say. And then it started to get buried. And I think that's because I mean, you'll notice MSNBC and CNN, A, didn't cover it, and I wouldn't probably, either, but they're not showing clips of it at all as something that should be said.

PAT: It's not like they shy away from clips if they could bash you with them.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: You know, I mean, we've seen that a thousand, a million times.

GLENN: NBC, I mean, all week.

PAT: But this thing was so well received. And that's why when we were on the way back, I said I'm going to be interested to see how MSNBC and CNN cover this. Well, they didn't. Because there was nothing to really take apart. And the reception at the convention was just so amazing. We were told before your speech that it was Mark Rubio everybody was talking about and you got five standing ovations.

GLENN: I heard eight.

PAT: You got twelve.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: You got twelve full standing ovations and then another six to eight partial, you know, where part of the audience stands.

GLENN: Yeah, it was a little like did anybody else feel like this? It was like the state of the union address.

GLENN: It was.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: People just kept standing up. And there were times when like half the audience was standing up. And I'm like, what are you, that's the progressive side. That's the progressive said.

STU: I said that's one of the annoying things, too, when half the audience stands up and you realize the clapping's not going to stop if you don't also stand up when you're in the crowd. You're like, that was a good line, I'm just going to clap sitting down. And then you realize everybody else is standing up and you go, all right, here we go.

PAT: I guess it was that good, I guess we'll stand up.

GLENN: Let me go for Cut 3 and then we'll take a break.

Not everybody gets a trophy. What is the point of competing for a trophy if everyone gets a trophy? (Applause). Please stop teaching my children that everyone will get a trophy just for participating. What is this, the Nobel Prize?

That was an ad lib.

STU: Very solid line.

PAT: That was some red meat right there.

STU: Which is difficult really.

GLENN: Not everybody gets a trophy. We should start correcting our children's work in red ink again. I mean, I'm tired, what are we? Spin the color wheel now? You corrected my child's work in red ink. "Yes, I did." Well, that's a little traumatic. You know what's even more traumatic? If little Johnny keeps getting these answers wrong when he goes out into the big bad world and he's eaten. That's worse. There is some sort of element of competition to life. "Oh, that's not natural." Really? Go watch the lions eat the weakest.

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.
