Palin, Beck and TIME

GLENN: So, The Time 100 just came out and I'm on the Time 100. They don't rate them by numbers, right, they're just what category am I? Did think put me in, like, the buffoon category? Which category am I in?


 


 STU: They put you in leaders.


 


 GLENN: Leaders? Hum. And Sarah Palin wrote it. I didn't know that.


 


 STU: Yeah. That's great.


 


 GLENN: Oh, boy. Have you read it?


 


 STU: Yeah. He just read it. It's great.


 


 GLENN: Who would have thought a history buff with a quirky sense of humor and a chalkboard could make for such make such riveting television. Glenn's like the high school government teacher so many wish they had, charting and connecting ideas with chalk dusted fingers, kicking it old school instead of becoming just another talking head show host. Self taught, he has become America's professor of common sense, sharing earnestly sought knowledge with an audience hungry for truth. Glenn, 46, tackles topics the other news shows would regard as arcane. Considered his desire progressive movement, he's doing to progressives with Ronald Reagan did to liberals, explaining it's a damaged brand. His love for the founding fathers inspires others to learn and to respect our nation's history. Best of all, Glenn delights in driving the self proclaimed powers that be crazy. The whole country awaits the red phone ringing. Even his critics, whom he annihilates in ratings, have to admire his amazing ability to galvanize everyday Americans to better themselves and peacefully engage their government. Though he sometimes dismisses himself as an awe, shucks guy or just a rodeo clown, he is really an inspiring patriot who was once at the bottom but now makes a much needed difference from the very, very top.


 


 Wow. That is really nice.


 


 PAT: That's cool. That is really nice.


 


 GLENN: Would you remind me to write to her today? That is really nice. Let's see if we can get her on the phone. Call her. That's really nice. Is she on the list?


 


 STU: I don't know. I'm not aware.


 


 PAT: You would think she would have to be.


 


 GLENN: Here's Mark Andrews. This is laughable, uneducated trailer trash writing about a cretin. Love for founding matters? Which would those be, Sarah? Do you even know who they are?


 


 STU: Yes. Sarah Palin is on the list and guess who wrote hers. Ted Nugent.


 


 GLENN: Oh, Ted Nugent. What does he write about her?


 


 STU: If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band. The patriotic soul of our forefathers are alive and well in Sarah, in the way she lives, what she says, and how she dedicates herself to make America better in these interesting times. She represents the good, while exposing the bad and ugly. She embraces the critical duty of we, the people, by participating in this glorious experiment in self government. The tsunami of support proves that Sarah, 46, represents what many Americans know to be common and sensible. Her rugged individualism, self reliance, and Herculean work ethic resonate now more than ever in a country spinning away from these basics that made the U.S.A. the last best place. Who we are driven to who we are, driven to be assets to our families, communities, and our beloved country connects with the principles that Sarah Palin embodies. We now we know that bureaucrats and even more Fedzilla are not the solution. They are the problem. I'm proud to share a moose barbecue campfire with Palin with the Palin family anytime, so long as I can shoot the moose.


 


 GLENN: She's great. So, who's on the here's the full list of leaders. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Is that Brazil? Is that the president of Brazil?


 


 STU: He looks the guy from the Dos Equis commercials, the most fascinating man in the world.


 


 GLENN: I don't know that one. JT Wang, I know him. Admiral Mike Mullin, Barack Obama. Ron Bloom, the guy who says, oh, we generally agree with Mao that power comes from the barrel of a gun.


 


 STU: Well, that is a that's a way to leap inches and the capitalism, the free market is nonsense.


 


 STU: Leading us in the direction.


 


 GLENN: Hoto Maya.


 


 STU: I love him.


 


 GLENN: Dom meek, Nancy Pelosi, Sarah Palin, Salam Fiyad,, John Kyle, Glenn Beck, Aniece Parker, Tid Jane Thigh Yum, Jenny Beth Martin, Christine La Far Day, Recep Tayyip Eredogan


 


 STU: There's a lot of people I don't know in the world.


 


 GLENN: Stanley McCystal, Manmhan Singh


 


 PAT: And these are leaders, let's keep in mind. Whom are they leading?


 


 GLENN: I don't know. Bow Exalie, Mark Carney, Sister Carol Keenan, Sheik Rafe him. Robin Lee, Scott Brown


 


 STU: Yeah. It's a big list there.


 


 GLENN: I only know, like, three I have to go to this thing on I think it's Tuesday, and none of I don't have any suits that fit me anymore. I'm just as big as a house. I have to go and get, like, a I said to Chris, because he's coming with me because my wife is, like, I'm not going to that, I'm, like, come on. I've got something. She's, like, no. I think I'm out of town. I'm, like, come on. I'm going to be out of town. You're not going to be out of town. Oh, yes. I will. I'm not going to go.


 


 So, I've got to go and I've got to go stand and talk to Bozi Yi and Recep Tayyip Erdogan.


 


 STU: But that's not it. You're going to be hanging with Lady Gaga.


 


 GLENN: Hang on just a second.


 


 STU: This is fun.


 


 GLENN: Wait. These are heroes. Bill Clinton is a hero.


 


 STU: You you there. There you go.


 


 GLENN: Phil Mickelson, I agree with Phil Mickelson.


 


 STU: Ben Stiller


 


 GLENN: Why's hero?


 


 STU: Because


 


 GLENN: Why?


 


 STU: Zoolander was pretty funny.


 


 GLENN: I don't know any of these people. Serena Williams


 


 STU: Do you mean


 


 PAT: You know Serena Williams. She's the tennis.


 


 GLENN: But Jet Li of


 


 STU: Why isn't he a hero?


 


 STU: He can karate chop people. Does that stuff and kicks people in the face.


 


 GLENN: I hope Taylor Swift is going to be there.


 


 STU: That's awesome. Are you kidding me?


 


 GLENN: Simon Cowell is on.


 


 STU: Neal Patrick Harris.


 


 PAT: Oh, Ricky


 


 GLENN: How do you say his name?


 


 STU: I can see you and Prince in the corner, hanging out. That's a comfortable conversation.


 


 GLENN: Who are the thinkers?


 


 STU: Sandra Bullock's going to be there.


 


 GLENN: Steve Jobs.


 


 STU: You can get a scoop, perhaps.


 


 PAT: James Cameron is going to be there! Awesome! He's been talking about you all the time. He seems completely obsessed with you.


 


 GLENN: Where is he? What's


 


 STU: He's No. 25 on the artist list.


 


 GLENN: On the artist list. And coming in at No. 25, James Cameron. Now I have to go. Hey, Jimmy, how are you doing, buddy?


 


 STU: Steve Jobs will be. Thereof, I mean, at least they're on the list. I don't know if they're going to show.


 


 GLENN: It's such a weird he went last time because I was invited because I wrote the you notice that Rush Limbaugh is not on there


 


 STU: He was last year, though.


 


 GLENN: Yeah. I know and I wrote the thing for Rush Limbaugh and so I went and it was so uncomfortable. I'm sitting at this table with a bunch of people who just hate my guts and but this time I guess it will be a little more entertaining because now I'm on the list. Now I'm on the list and I can just sit at the table and go, I'm on the same list as you.


 


 STU: For no other reason


 


 GLENN: How does that feel, Jimmy?


 


 STU: I think there could be a really, nice comfortable conversation with you and Sonya Sotomayor. I think that would be interesting. You guys could cover some interesting ground. I think there's going to be a lot of good stories after this event.


 


 GLENN: There you go. There you go. Okay. So, there it is, the Time 100 and it's an honor just to be nominated. It is. And then you have to go to the event and so then the shine kind of comes off. Back in just a minute.

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

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.
