GLENN: We have Chris Christie porn.

PAT: I'm ready to go out on a limb here, I think, and say this guy needs to be president of the United States.

GLENN: I don't think you really want to go out on a limb with Chris Christie but that's —

PAT: Is that another fat joke?

GLENN: No.

PAT: No? That wasn't?

GLENN: No.

PAT: That wasn't any kind of a —

GLENN: No.

PAT: — weight —

GLENN: That was a racist joke.

PAT: Don't go out on limbs with white guys? Is that what it was?

GLENN: Yeah, that's it.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Okay. So Chris Christie, who I believe should be the next president of the United States as long as, as long as he keeps doing what he's doing and saying what he's saying. This guy is — he is telling the truth, he is unafraid, he is taking them on and taking them down.

PAT: The other great thing is he's explaining it to the people of New Jersey. Yes, his poll numbers are still slipping, but he's out there in front of groups and in front of the press and he's telling them why he must do all these things.

GLENN: See, this is the problem.

PAT: This is what the Republicans don't do. They are not good at it.

GLENN: You don't have anybody — and this is the problem. You don't have the money, you don't have the media, you don't have the Media Matters. The Huffington Post. You know, all the right has is talk radio. That's it. When you see the forces arrayed against you that we were just doing the commercial for Freedom Works, that's what I meant by that. When you see the forces arrayed against you, it is staggering.

PAT: It's all of the mainstream media.

GLENN: Yeah, all of it. It's absolutely all of it. And they just keep gobbling more. How is this guy going to get out? You know, he's alone. It's amazing to me. You can hear Marxism from a hundred sources, but you've got to go to maybe two, three, four sources to be able to hear somebody say this.

CHRISTIE: In responding to that, you look at the context of the quote. I said that Senator Lesniak AND Senator Kean's bill on the Educational Opportunity Scholarship Act is not the final solution to New Jersey's problems in education. It's just the beginning. This is an organization that is so devoid of a publicly supportable agenda that they are now reaching for every word to take them out of context and try to make something out of nothing when in the end what they are trying to recoup from is their very clear statements that they prayed for me to die and they are still attempting to find something that I say publicly that they can analogize to that. They are now 0 for 3 in that regard. So enough with the NJEA, okay? They should get back to the agenda that town councils are grappling with right now. 58% of New Jersey's school budgets were rejected because the public is tired, tired of ever escalating property taxes, they are tired of people not being willing to join in the shared sacrifice. So let me tell you something else. These guys and women standing behind me who are working to try to get jobs and who pay for a large portion of their own healthcare and who contribute mightily towards retirement, I'm not speaking for them but I have a sense that they are tired of paying for public employees who contribute nothing to their healthcare and who are getting 4 and 5% salary increases at a time of 0% inflation.

PAT: I mean —

GLENN: Shhh.

(Music playing)

GLENN: That is Chris Christie, slow motion. Oh. Walking up to a microphone.

PAT: Dingdong.

GLENN: Come in.

PAT: Not even, "Who is it?"

GLENN: No, just come on in.

PAT: Not pizza delivery?

GLENN: Uh uh. Just come on in.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: This guy is —

PAT: Fantastic.

GLENN: The best, the best.

PAT: Did he take it. He will not take it and he doesn't care. I mean, he knows his poll numbers are going down. He knows he's up against the New Jersey education association. Machine, machine.

GLENN: He knows that if you want to survive, if you want to survive, you have to start engaging in common sense. Look, this is going to hurt all of us. It's going to hurt all of us. But I am — you know, he is exactly right. I am so sick and tired of paying — do you know that the jobs that they are creating now, 430,000 of them, only 41 are in the private sector. That means you are paying for all of the other jobs. Why are we paying the public sector jobs almost twice as much money as you can get in the public sector — or in the private sector? Why? Don't tell me about service. These teachers stand up, "Well, we just have — we serve. No, you don't. You wouldn't be screaming about this. Service, since when is service twice, twice the pay scale as those who are working? I want you to understand I have nothing against teachers. I have something against bad teachers. But really the thing I have a problem with bad teachers is you can't fire them. My real problem is with the unions. The ride is over. It's over.

You know, people are sending me these books and I'm getting so many — did you see the books that came in yesterday, Pat?

PAT: No.

GLENN: I'm getting stacks of books and I'm getting books from the early American Revolution. Look at this. These three books right here, these three books were sent in by a listener. This is the history of America printed in 1801.

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: These are original —

PAT: Are they really?


Related: The Red Network

GLENN: 1801. They are unbelievable.

PAT: Those are in unbelievable condition.

GLENN: Oh, I know. I know. This here is a pocket history of the American Revolution, pocket history, 1826. Now, I'm getting a lot of people sending their books in. I think they are mainly from people who are like, "I don't have any relatives to leave them to and I know you'll preserve them." And I will. In fact, I had a conversation with my daughters yesterday when I came home. I showed them these books and I said, I will come back from the grave if I ever see anybody with jam hands generations down the road that don't appreciate what these books are. But I'm also getting these. This is a book, the Red Network. This came in from 1936. People — McCarthy was absolutely right. Now, he may have used bad tactics or whatever, but he was absolutely right. This is a book — and I'm getting a ton of these from people who were doing what we're doing now. We now are documenting who all of these people are. Well, there were Americans in the first 50 years of this nation that took this seriously and they documented it. And this is from 1936. And in it, it talks about, it's The Who's Who and Handbook For Radicalism For Patriots. This is, who were the communists in America. The overwhelming number of communists? Labor unions.

The other thing that they talked about was, in this book that I was reading last night, they said, you know, there's this — there's this teachers union thing but you really want to know who the real radical communists are? The NEA. That's 1936. And they are talking about this new organization that is really nasty that you really have to look out for. The NEA. But everything this book has talked about they have mainstreamed.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere discussed former Starbucks CEO and progressive Howard Schultz, a lifelong Democrat who has not only been disowned by the Democrat Party but he can no longer set foot inside of a Starbucks store because of his success in business.

In this clip, Stu explained how at one time Starbucks only sold coffee in bags until Schultz, an employee at the time, convinced the company to open a Starbucks cafe.

At one point, the owners came close to closing down the cafe, but Schultz eventually managed to purchase the company and transform it into the empire that it is today.

Stu continued, describing how Schultz, a lifelong Democrat, went on to implement liberal corporate policies that earned the company a reputation for being a "beacon" of liberalism across the country.

"And now he (Schultz) can't even get into the Democrat Party," Stu said."That is craziness," Glenn replied.

Citing a "60 Minutes" interview, Glenn highlighted the journey that Schultz traveled, which started in the New York City projects and evolved, later becoming the CEO of a coffee empire.

"This guy is so American, so everything in business that we want to be, he has taken his beliefs and made it into who he is which is very liberal," Glenn explained.

This weekend, March 17, Rep. Rashida Tlaib will be speaking at (Council on American Islamic Relations) CAIR-Michigan's 19th annual "Faith-Led, Justice Driven" banquet.

Who knows what to expect. But here are some excerpts from a speech she gave last month, at CAIR-Chicago's 15th annual banquet.

RELATED: CLOSER LOOK: Who is Rep. Ilhan Omar?

You know the speech is going to be good when it begins like this:


CAIR-Chicago 15th Annual Banquet: Rashida Tlaib youtu.be


It's important to remember CAIR's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Think of CAIR as a spinoff of HAMAS, who its two founders originally worked for via a Hamas offshoot organization (the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP)).

A 2009 article in Politico says feds "designated CAIR a co-conspirator with the Holy Land Foundation, a group that was eventually convicted for financing terrorism."

The United Arab Emirates has designated CAIR a terrorist organization.

In 1993, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told a reporter for the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.

In 1998, CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad said:

Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Notice the slight underhanded jab at Israel. It's just one of many in her speech, and is indicative of the growing anti-Semitism among Democrats, especially Tlaib and Omar.

Most of the speech, as you might expect, is a long rant about the evil Donald Trump.

I wonder if she realizes that the Birth of Jesus pre-dates her religion, and her "country." The earliest founding of Palestine is 1988, so maybe she's a little confused.

Then there's this heartwarming story about advice she received from Congressman John Dingell:

When I was a state legislator, I came in to serve on a panel with him on immigration rights, and Congressman Dingell was sitting there and he had his cane, if you knew him, he always had this cane and he held it in front of him. And I was so tired, I had driven an hour and a half to the panel discussion at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus. And I sit down, my hair is all messed up, and I said, 'Oh, my God, I'm so tired of this. I don't know how you've been doing it so long Congressman. They all lie.' And he looks at me and he goes. (She nods yes.) I said, 'You know who I'm talking about, these lobbyists, these special interest [groups], they're all lying to me.' … And he looks at me, and he goes, 'Young lady, there's a saying in India that if you stand still enough on a riverbank, you will watch your enemies float by dead.'

What the hell does that mean? That she wants to see her enemies dead? Who are her enemies? And how does that relate to her opening statement? How does it relate to the "oppression" her family faced at the hand of Israel?

Glenn Beck on Wednesday called out Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for their blatantly anti-Semitic rhetoric, which has largely been excused by Democratic leadership. He noted the sharp contrast between the progressive principles the freshmen congresswomen claim to uphold and the anti-LGBTQ, anti-feminist, anti-Israel groups they align themselves with.

Later this month, both congresswomen are scheduled to speak at fundraisers for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a pro-Palestinian organization with ties to Islamic terror groups including Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, and the Islamic State.

Rep. Tlaib will be speaking at CAIR-Michigan's 19th Annual Banquet on March 17 in Livonia, Michigan, alongside keynote speaker Omar Suleiman, a self-described student of Malcolm X with links to the Muslim Brotherhood. Suleiman has regularly espoused notably "un-progressive" ideas, such as "honor killings" for allegedly promiscuous women, mandatory Hijabs for women, death as a punishment for homosexuality, and men having the right to "sex slaves," Glenn explained.

Rep. Omar is the keynote speaker at a CAIR event on March 23 in Los Angeles and will be joined by Hassan Shibly, who claims Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations, and Hussam Ayloush, who is known for referring to U.S. armed forces as radical terrorists.

The roots of AOC

It wasn't too long ago that Blanca thought it was all over.

Born in Puerto Rico, Blanca lived in New York most of her life. Recently, a reporter from the Daily Mail sent a reporter to interview Blanca. When the reporter arrived, Blanca was calmly sculpting wood in the front yard of her modest, 860-square-foot home down the street from a cemetery. Occasionally, a drug deal takes place out front, and the house is crumbling in parts, but Blanca has been fixing it up since she moved in a couple years ago, and this is home.

Reading the article, you can feel the writer's surprise, you can feel an unsuspecting writer being wrapped in Blanca's story.

RELATED: We are all now dumber for what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to say

By day, Blanca works for the Lake County School District as a clerical assistant.

This is a story about mothers.

Blanca is a woman who makes lasagna for visiting relatives and watches over her 78-year-old mother, "who suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and often breathes oxygen from a concentrator, and a loud rescue mutt named Tammy."

This is a story about daughters.

Because Blanca always believed in her daughter. Believed her daughter would be important. And, regardless of your opinion on her daughter—and, believe me, you have an opinion about her daughter, because everybody has an opinion about her daughter—there's no denying the wholesomeness of this story, so hear me out.

"Her dad and I were preparing for Alexandria's birth and still picking names," Blanca told the reporter. "And he came up with 'Alexandria.' I thought about it for a while and I said: 'Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. That sounds very powerful. That'll be her name.'"

Yes, that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the infamous millennial Democratic Socialist who represents New York's 14th district (covering the Bronx and Queens) in the House of Representatives.

And her mother is Blanca Ocasio-Cortez.

Blanca married Sergio Ocasio in Puerto Rico, then moved to New York. She knew very little English, but she learned. She worked the jobs nobody else wanted. She mopped floors at night, she drove school buses, she answered phones, took orders.

In 1989, she gave birth to her first child, a girl, in The Bronx, New York City. Two years later, she gave birth to a boy.

Until Alexandria was five, the family lived in a one-bedroom condo in the Parkchester neighborhood of the Bronx.

Theirs was an American struggle.

Theirs was an American struggle. Sergio worked hard until he had his own business, and the small family pooled together their resources and took out a mortgage, and moved into "a small single-family house with a yard in nearby Yorktown Heights."

"We had a great life there," Blanca said. "Alexandria was very social, so she always had a bunch of girls over. She took over the shed in the backyard. She cleaned it up, put up curtains and photos and made it look nice, and that was like a clubhouse for her and her friends."

Blanca talks about her daughter the way any good mother does, recalling that her daughter was always talkative.

"When I took her to her pre-K interview, she didn't let me talk much. She was going on and on about knowing the alphabet and being able to count."

In 2008, while Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a sophomore at Boston University, her father, Blanca's husband, died of lung cancer.

Overnight, Blanca had to become the breadwinner.

I was cleaning houses in the morning and working as a secretary at a hospital in the afternoon... it was still difficult making ends meet. At one point, I was skipping mortgage payments and we almost lost the house.

This is a story about a single mother who raised her family after her husband died of lung cancer.

As the Daily Mail notes:

Sergio's death put the family into a tailspin. He had no life insurance, two years of health care bills due and the money his business brought in dried out. Blanca recalls she faced foreclosure not just once, but twice.

"It was scary," Blanca told the reporter. "I had to take medicine I was so scared. I had to stop paying for the mortgage for almost a year. I was expecting someone knocking on the door to kick me out at any time. There were even real estate people coming around to take photos of the house for when it was going to be auctioned. The worst is that I only had $50,000 left to pay on the loan."

Funny enough, it was the bank, not the welfare office or the local church that helped her.

Blanca worked from 6am until 11pm.

And I prayed and prayed, and things worked out. After the children graduated from college, I figured it was time for me to move to Florida.

These days, Blanca lives in Eustis, Florida, a lakefront community of about 16,000 people near Orlando. She moved here just before Christmas in 2016. She'd been paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes in New York. Now, she pays $600 a year.

When she first got here, the world, her world was much different. Her daughter was a bartender in New York and hadn't filed paperwork to become a Representative.

Really, though, this is a story about what it means to live in America.

"I love privacy and calm," Blanca said. "I don't like the limelight for myself and my family. But it seems that God played quite a joke on me with this politics stuff."

The Daily Mail sent reporter Jose Lambiet, presumably to do a hatchet job. The story is tempting: taxes are so severe in New York that even the mother of the wild-eyed Democratic Socialist representing that area can't even afford to live there. Really, though, this is a story about what it means to live in America.

And while liberal media has paraded the story around with that smug look on their faces, so have conservative outlets, and in both cases they've missed the real story. The human story. The story of all of us. Because Blanca is an American, same as you and me.
