Glenn Beck: L.A. schools teach AZ law 'un-American'

GLENN: Obama is meeting with the governor of Arizona today at 1:30. That's going to be — seriously that's going to be good. Los Angeles Unified School District board wants to teach in all public schools that the Arizona immigration law is un American. The school board voted unanimously on Tuesday to express outrage and condemnation of the law and to call on school superintendent to look into curtailing economic support to the Grand Canyon state.

This is what the commerce clause is all about, gang. This is it. The government can't be neutral on this. I don't know why anybody — I don't know why we're not pursuing this. Pat, tell me the history of the commerce clause. What was it for?

PAT: So that states wouldn't boycott each other.

GLENN: So you would have free trade in between the states and you wouldn't have the boycotts and you wouldn't have — that's what it was about.

STU: So this is a pure example of when this thing should actually be —

GLENN: Exact example.

PAT: But Barack Obama's already said, hey, I'm neutral.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I've indicated that I don't approve of the Arizona law.


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think it's the wrong approach.


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I understand the frustrations of the people of Arizona.


PAT: But.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And a lot of folks along the border that that border has not been entirely secure.

PAT: But.

GLENN: Entirely?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But in a way that is both true to our traditions as a nation of law

GLENN: Just get to the but!

PRESIDENT OBAMA: and as a nation of immigrants


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I'm president of the United States. I don't endorse boycotts.

GLENN: Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or not endorse boycotts.

PAT: Or not endorse.

GLENN: Or not endorse boycotts. Excuse me. You're the president of the United States. The United States. The commerce clause is to make sure that no state bullies the other state. To make sure that no states are beating up on each other, that commerce happens in the United States. The president taking a sideline is perplexing to me.

PAT: Even then they knew that commrece between the big states and the little states would be — I mean, if a big state like New York wanted to —

STU: Well, the commrece clause is there for that reason.

PAT: Commercely, you know, damage another little state.

STU: Right.

PAT: Let's say Virginia which, you know, commercely was much, much bigger than —

STU: Right. Much more commrece, yeah.

PAT: Than say Delaware, at the time you could really manhandle in a commrece way.

STU: Right.

PAT: Virginia could really commercely —

STU: Well, the amount of commrece was

PAT: The amount of commrece was staggering.

STU: Make sure commrece is flowing between —

PAT: So if you wanted the commrece to flow among the states.

GLENN: Are you just making fun of me?

PAT: And now it's even — I mean, commercely it's even a bigger issue because now you have states with, like, 44 million people.

GLENN: Just say it! Just say it!

PAT: Commerce!

STU: Commerce!

PAT: Commerce.

STU: Commerce. Not commrece.

GLENN: The commrece law —

STU: I didn't know about that the commrece clause.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: The commerce clause, that's actually the reason it was there so they don't boycott each other.

PAT: Oh, yeah. I mean, they wanted free trade among the states.

GLENN: Look, that's why the Constitution — the Articles of Confederation fell apart. Because you had states beating up on each other. You had the little states being bullied by the big states and they were like, wait a minute, hold it just a second.

PAT: And the founders knew the small states wouldn't have a chance, wouldn't have a chance against the larger states.

GLENN: And they weren't. The whole thing was falling apart because the big states were saying, you know what, we're going to attach a whole bunch of taxes because you're from Connecticut and we think that we can do a better job on that than you. And Connecticut would say, well, wait a minute, just a second.

PAT: Could have run them right out of business.

GLENN: Yeah, they could run the entire state out of business. And so the thing was falling apart. That's when they went to George Washington and said, hey, George, you've got to come up here because this thing's all falling apart. And the whole Revolutionary War, everything is for naught if we don't put together a new Constitution because the Articles of Confederation are too weak. The states are beating up on each other. And so that's when Washington said, have I not done enough for my country yet? He came up, he listened, they — this was one of the things, this was the main thing that they tried to solve is to be able to have commerce —

STU: Excellent.

PAT: Nice, nicely done.

GLENN: — be able to happen between all of the states. So now the president of the United States who says, "I'm not here to support; I'm not here to stop a state sponsored boycott."

PAT: Of course you are.

GLENN: The man —

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: The man doesn't understand the Constitution. Did he understand the Federalist Papers, did he —

PAT: Oh, he taught the Constitution for ten years, Glenn. Of course he understands the Constitution. He was a constitutional professor back in Illinois.

GLENN: No, he wasn't. He was a lecturer.

PAT: Oh, wait, what?

GLENN: He was a lecturer. He wasn't a professor. He was a lecturer.

PAT: You said he did something with the Constitution.

GLENN: Oh, he's doing a lot with the Constitution.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
