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.

GLENN: But?

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

GLENN: But?

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

GLENN: But.

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

GLENN: But!

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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
