GLENN: So, can you give me the quote from Ed Schultz here ant fairness doctrine a year ago?

STU: Yes, I can do that for you.

Glenn: Hang on. Let me start with this. This is from yesterday. Here's Ed Schultz from yesterday.

ED SCHULTZ: It is a cultural war that's taking place in America. You're exactly right. And it's being played out over the air waves of America and I hope the Democrats now turn to the fairness doctrine. It's time now for the Democrats --

GLENN: Yes. I know.

ED SCHULTZ: -- to consider the fairness doctrine, when you've got Rush Limbaugh out there saying we've got to defeat these bastards.

GLENN: Yes.

ED SCHULTZ: He is now openly admitting this he is going to work against and campaign against the Republican -- against the Democratic party.

PAT: He's been clear on that.

GLENN: He's always been --

PAT: Like this is a new deal for Rush?

GLENN: I mean -- stop, stop, stop, stop. Okay. So, there he is. This is yesterday. Here he is just before the election.

STU: This is -- who talks to -- he's talking to someone who is saying that the censor -- the fairness doctrine is coming back over at News Busters and he said, Who talks to Nancy Pelosi more? You or me? Have you talked to Nancy Pelosi ever, because if he had, once he had ever -- if he had had once ever had he done so more than -- oh, geez. This is just -- this is why I can't speak in coherent sentences. But he responded, quote, Well, I just spoke to Nancy Pelosi and no one wants to see the fairness doctrine brought back.

GLENN: No one.

PAT: No one.

GLENN: Except me.

PAT: No one else.

GLENN: Now that we have power -- I mean, listen to this. He's calling for the fairness doctrine after they've won, not after they've lost, after they've won. They still got it done, with all of the debate, and, yet, they want to shut down the debate. They want to make it even easier than it was. They've won! And they want to shut you up. Imagine what they would have done if they would have lost. Killed us all?

PAT: Does that show you how comfortable they are? It shows how comfortable they are with this bill.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: They're really uncomfortable. They know something is wrong. They know this won't hold up.

GLENN: What is the difference between this and global warming?

PAT: There is none.

GLENN: There is none. There is no difference between this and global warming. These people cannot handle a debate. Did you notice -- you know, Stu and I were talking. There was a story out that said that I was backtracking on one of the stories -- I don't remember what it was -- I was backtracking. Oh, on the Jim Wallace thing.

STU: Social justice, backtracking.

GLENN: And Stu watched the monolog and he said, Where is the backtracking there? I mean, I went further. I went further. I wasn't backtracking. And I said to him, I said, you know, Stu, this week I have finished up the radio or television shows and there have been moments where I've finished them up and I have said, -- I've looked at the staff and I've said, can anybody make an argument against that? I mean, it may be wrong as far as that's not necessarily what's coming, but can anyone say that's just crazy, because that's all people do. Anybody in the media, he's crazy, he's dangerous, he's an entertainer, he's in it for ulterior motives, whatever it is, but they never address the consent, ever, unless it's out of context.

STU: Right. And I think that's one of the issues is that these people are writing stories in a 20 minute window that they have before they have to pump out another one about something completely unrelated and it's a problem, especially frustrating for us because we sit here for three years hours every day going over these things. We go so in-depth, we talk about, you know, endlessly, theory, how long have we talked about Woodrow Wilson? Can we go any more in-depth about things like that?

GLENN: Yes, we can.

STU: Oh, no. Please don't.

GLENN: We could. We could do it tomorrow. I could add an extra hour to the show tomorrow.

STU: I don't think we should do that, but the point is it's like these people are trying to read one sentence they read on a blog or a report from somewhere else, trying to form an opinion.

GLENN: Here's the amazing thing. If you really wanted -- somebody's challenging me to a debate, notice they're all doing this, Well, I challenge Glenn Beck to a debate. I don't think so. If you wanted to have a real discussion, I would be in, but nobody wants to do that. All they're doing is angling to either, A, sell their books, hype their TV show, or just get him! When are we going to have an actual conversation in America?

(Out at 10:30 a.m.)

Glenn: I'm just looking up at the headlines. The GOP should just go for it with repeal and reform campaign. That's from President Obama. Then why is he trying to shut it down? Why are all the operatives shouting it down? Let it go. Let it go. The President said they should go for it. Everybody in watch watch said, That's the stupidest thing I've ever seen. That's going to destroy the republican party! Wouldn't they want that? Are they suddenly worried about a level playing field and they want to advise the Republicans, don't do any more damage, we need a two-party system. We need you-guys to win once in awhile? Is that what that strategy is all of a sudden? I love this. Yeah. I would like to take my advice from the Democrats. Uh-huh, uh-huh. That's why I would like to also take my advice on what he should do on this program from Ed Schultz, because he's so darn successful and he's got my best interest at heart.

We have Noel Sheppard on? Noel Sheppard from NewsBusters. And, Noel, you are a guy who, God bless you, I don't know how you've done it. You've actually listened and talked to Ed.

SHEPPARD: No, no, no. I've actually never talked to Ed.

GLENN: Oh, good for you.

SHEPPARD: Yeah. No. I'm not sure that Ed and I would get along very well, although, you know, if he invited me on, Glenn, I would certainly speak to him but somehow I don't imagine it would be a friendly discussion.

GLENN: I just wanted to touch base with you because I asked Stu, I said, Has Ed Schultz ever advocated, you know, We've got to get these guys? We've got to throw these guys out of office? Has he ever done that before?

SHEPPARD: Oh, definitely. I mean, as we go back -- what I did is I've compiled a list of some of his greatest hits and most of them are quite recent.

GLENN: Okay. What are they?

SHEPPARD: He made a comment -- and let me see if I can find it. He made a comment --

GLENN: You're breaking news here because this is the first time that anyone but Ed Schultz and you have heard anything that Ed Schultz has said.

SHEPPARD: That's true. We're about to radically increase his ratings. So --

GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah.

SHEPPARD: -- maybe you ought to reconsider this whole segment, Glenn.

GLENN: Oh. Yeah. It's amazing.

SHEPPARD: As I recall back in January, January 14th -- 15th or 16th, he made a comment on his radio show and this is just before the election in -- the special election in Massachusetts, he made a comment on his radio show that if he lived in Massachusetts, I would vote 10 times --

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

SHEPPARD: -- to keep these bastards out. You've got to love him. I mean, he's honest. Right?

GLENN: Right. Oh, yeah. No. I mean, he is honest in his cheating, yes.

SHEPPARD: He's honest in his cheating.

GLENN: Right.

SHEPPARD: And I think on the same day -- I think on the same day he made a comment that if Brown wins, it will be the end of change as we know it. Now, for many of us, we hoped that that was going to be the case but based on what happened in Sunday and what's happened the rest of this week, apparently Brown's victory didn't end change as we know it, did it, Glenn?

GLENN: Ed, I would like to -- if I may quote the President, Some people are talking about this whole bill as Armageddon.

SHEPPARD: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, that's what he said about Scott Brown. It's going to be the end of change.

SHEPPARD: The other beautiful thing is so the bill has been in effect for a couple of days, three days, whatever it is and Obama is out there saying, See, they said the world was going to an end if this bill was signed. Of course, nothing's been enacted yet. So, it's kind of early for the world to end.

GLENN: Yeah. No. It will probably be -- if we can make it to 2014 --

SHEPPARD: Yeah.

GLENN: -- it will probably be 2014

SHEPPARD: Yeah. And then hopefully Obama is out of office at that point. So, it --

GLENN: It could be blamed on the Republicans. No, it will be blamed on the Republicans.

SHEPPARD: Oh, no doubt. There's no doubt, but here's another one I think you'll like. I found this. This goes back to September when Ed Schultz said on his MSNBC show -- again, we're probably now talking -- more people are learning about what he said at this moment than actually witnessed it while it occurred.

Glenn: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. No, wait, wait. Let's get this right, because I believe in accuracy and fairness. More people are hearing about it now than have watched MSNBC the entire lineup for the last month.

SHEPPARD: (Laughter.)

GLENN: All right. Go ahead. (Laughter.)

SHEPPARD: Should we rethink? We're doing this man a favor.

GLENN: No, no. I mean, please. There's not anybody who's listening to this show that thinks this guy is anything but a pin head. All right. So --

SHEPPARD: Last September, around the 24th and Ed makes the comment on his MSNBC program, the Republicans lie, they want to see you dead, they would rather make money off your dead corpse, they kind of like it when that woman had cancer and they don't have anything for her. Oh, you've got to love him. Right? And they're talking about the angry rhetoric Tea Parties, right, and the angry rhetoric on Capitol Hill this weekend.

GLENN: And that's on MSNBC.

SHEPPARD: And Ed Schultz is claiming the Republicans want people to die.

GLENN: It's unbelievable. I don't know why he's not successful. I just can't imagine why he's not successful. Ed, we're just -- Ed, I just want you to know, we're leveling the playing field for you. That's all we're doing. We're -- I'm giving permission, anybody that could listen to Ed, you go right ahead. If this sounds attractive to you, you go ahead and go over there

SHEPPARD: Well, the other thing, more recently he made a comment -- and this was actually in response to a News Busters piece that I wrote, Glenn. He made a comment that we ought to rip Dick Cheney's heart out. Now, this is the tolerant left. Right? We ought to rip Dick Cheney's heart out. That was only about three weeks ago. That was February 24th or 25th he made that comment, maybe 23rd.

GLENN: What was happening in the world where Ed all of a sudden --

PAT: I think it was -- it was -- wasn't it right around the time Dick Cheney had a heart attack?

SHEPPARD: Yeah.

PAT: And I think that's when he said it.

GLENN: So, you instead of sending flowers, you rip his heart out? These guys are good. No. They're good people.

SHEPPARD: Well, maybe he was being kind. He was saying, Dick, that heart obviously doesn't work. So, maybe you ought to rip it out and put in a new one?

GLENN: Yeah. There you go. There you go. We're giving him the benefit of the --

SHEPPARD: It's the health care reform thing. If this Obamacare goes through, Dick Cheney won't have all of these heart attacks because we'll rip his heart out. We'll give him a new one!

GLENN: Right. And do you know what? Let me tell you something. Those are the kind of doctors we're going to do that are just, I'll fix it. I'll rip it heart out and then I'll jam another one in.

SHEPPARD: But I think what's going to happen then is everybody is going to be given a liberal heart. Just imagine what it will be then.

GLENN: I don't believe liberals have hearts. They have hearts. They don't no brains. That's how it is.

SHEPPARD: They have hearts. They have no brains. So, there won't be any brain transplants coming from liberals. Right?

GLENN: Well, thank you very much, sir, and, Noel, keep up the good work.

SHEPPARD: My pleasure. Any time you need me, sir.

 

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a transgender activist called for a "Supreme Court Assassination Challenge" on Twitter, according to screenshots captured of the now-deleted tweet.

Activist Eli Erlick, a founding member of Trans Student Educational Resources (TSER) and creator of the controversial "gender identity" teaching tool for children called the "Gender Unicorn," tweeted and later deleted the disturbing remark on Friday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) also caught a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

"The unhinged radical left is calling for the assassination of our Supreme Court Justices. That's not the way to disagree with a decision in America. It is unacceptable, and Biden’s DOJ must immediately act," Blackburn responded on Twitter.

Erlich then tried to play off her call to assassinate Supreme Court justices as a hilarious joke only Gen Z and Millennials would understand, apparently not understanding the seriousness of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just three weeks ago.

Erlick isn't the only Left-winger to make incendiary calls since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Here are just a few examples:

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on people to “defy" the Supreme Court.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called for people to get “into the streets” alongside radical communist leader who wants to 'overthrow' the American system.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) yelled "F*** Clarence Thomas" on a public stage for all to see and hear.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
  • And of course, "TheView" host Whoopi Goldberg issued a disgusting racist threat toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program, BlazeTV hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere took a look at these and other stunning examples of leftist lunacy over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

Build up or tear down.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

Photo by Yasin Ozturk/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
