Biden: Moderates need not apply to GOP

GLENN: I want to go right to Joe Biden. Joe Biden says that moderates need not apply to the GOP.

CALLER: But the truth is that it's real tough for the Republican Party and really they kind of hung out a shingle, you know, no moderates need apply. It's and it's sort of spawns a, I don't know, a tone in politics that is not helpful.

PAT: Okay. What he was saying there, I guess is our level low? Apparently moderates need not apply to the Republican Party.

STU: Yeah. Because as you see in this over the past, say, 18 months has been devastating for the Republicans.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: You know, from where they were in 2008

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Hang on just a second. There's a new poll out that shows that Democrats have, I don't even know, a hate rating of, like, 70% and the Republicans have a hate rating of, like, 81%.

STU: Well, the Republicans have the largest lead in the generic ballot they've ever had in all recorded history.

GLENN: No, I understand that. I understand that. What it is is a very, it's a very subtle difference.

STU: Right. They are not in love with Republicans.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Because they haven't proven they can do anything.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But the bottom line is the idea that you are fighting on principle always strengthens your party. It makes you not a non, sort of undefined animal and that's important.

GLENN: It again goes back to what they caller said a little while ago. He was watching the debate between O'Donnell and Coons and they were having the debate last night and he said, this isn't about ideology. It is. It is about the Constitution and whether or not the American experiment as dreamed up by our founders is going to continue or not. It is about ideology. I believe the worst thing that we can do is to continue to spend. Your ideology teaches continue to spend more to get us out of this. The days of that being able to be true are over, long ago. They were over under George W. Bush.

STU: And that's why they want to talk about mice brains. That's why they want to talk about Christine O'Donnell in 1996 on MTV because they don't want to have that debate.

GLENN: They don't they say this isn't about ideology, but it is. It is Constitution versus Karl Marx.

PAT: This is from the party. This is from the guy whose party is in complete disarray from the American people. They are so separate from the American people, and they understand that. And so all of this is just a diversion. But they've seen the polls just like we have, that 56% of the American people think they are the ones who are extreme and only, like, 30% or something think the Republicans are extreme. We've seen poll after poll.

STU: Yeah. And I love the idea that he's sitting here feeling bad because the Republicans keep putting up these terrible candidates. If you look at this in reality, it took the Republicans basically twelve years to screw it up enough for everyone to not trust them. From 1994 to 2006. It's taking the Democrats four years. They were literally, after 2008, everyone was writing off the Republicans as a regional party. Do we not remember this?

PAT: Done for 50 years.

STU: Done for 50 years. We are the next election two years later and almost everyone is saying a massive move to the right, and is it going to be enough to be a huge move in the Senate to take it over is the question mark. I mean, that's really the line we're talking about: Will it be enough for the Senate, will it be enough for the House. We'll have a huge move in the House and it will be overwhelming there and yet Biden's very, very concerned for the future of the Republican Party. So idiotic.

PAT: They have to do this is another great sign. Instead of getting mad about this, we should be happy for this because

GLENN: You know what?

STU: Something to celebrate, absolutely.

GLENN: A, I could care less about anything that anybody says about the GOP. I couldn't care less. I couldn't. Could you? Could you care less?

PAT: Only in that that's the party where the conservatives come from.

STU: Yeah. I mean

PAT: That's the only reason I care about the Republican Party. If there are conservatives who share my values

GLENN: (Inaudible).

PAT: I know. Well, that's the problem with the Republican Party. But when there's a conservative in the race, they're always Republican.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Or, you know, libertarian. But they've got no juice. So

STU: But I mean, the Republican Party

GLENN: I think they are about to.

STU: The Republican Party is what the people inside of it define it as. And the bottom line is if you start having a lot more Jim DeMints, the Republican Party isn't going to be a bad thing to us. It's going to be something that's great.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: Because you have some people standing there who are

GLENN: Yes and no.

STU: Well

GLENN: The Republican Party here, look. You know, Pat just brought up libertarians. I don't want the traditional Republican Party. I guess Ronald Reagan was the closest to what I would want from that. And that is a reduction in power. I don't want I mean, I'm a religious guy, but I don't want a group you know what really happened to the Christian Coalition? The Christian Coalition became about politics, and it really started to center in on Washington. That, that's the worst thing that could happen. The worst thing that could happen. We don't want big government to do anything for special interests. We want the special interests, you know, if you will, to dismantle government so they can go on and do their own thing themselves in their own community and in their own circle of influence. Not to have the government. And if the Republicans become a which it could very easily become. I mean, this is why you have to be very careful of progressivism. Because if it is misunderstood and it is so easily misunderstood and somebody rises to the top into the Republican Party and the good news is I don't see any of them. I don't see anybody out there that gets it that is a progressive on the right. I mean, do you think? What is it, Trent Lott, Lindsey Graham, John McCain? None of them are going to do it because none of them have the juice with the American people. There's nobody out there that has the juice with the American people that is a progressive on the left, that could really grab power. But if you could find a progressive I'm sorry, on the right that could grab power and was a Republican, extraordinarily dangerous.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And that's why I don't like I just, I'm sick of the parties.

STU: I am sick of them, too. All I care about the ideas, I could care less about the R versus the D. If they you know, if the Democrats started putting people like Jim DeMint in office, I would be voting Democrat.

GLENN: What's the difference between an idea and ideology?

STU: I think they try to make ideology out as this, it's essentially a religion. It's something that you can't question. You're immovable, you never can consider anything outside of it, you're fighting for it blindly, blah, blah blah.

PAT: They're connected. Their ideas spring from your ideology.

GLENN: Right. It's what you believe in. I mean, we can come up with a million ideas if you are a free market person and you're a small government person, I can come up with idea after idea after idea. But I can come up with a whole bunch of ideas and if I'm in a system built by Marxists and giant government, none of my ideas matter.

STU: Right.

GLENN: That's why when the president says, you know, he's lying when he says, I'll sit down and talk to anybody. No, you won't. I mean, unless it's, you know, Ahmadinejad. You won't sit down and talk with me, you won't sit down and talk with Fox News, you won't sit down with the leaders of the tea party and really listen. No. You might sit down and talk to them, not with them. You'll talk to them, but they won't make any progress because you are an ideologue. And so any idea that anyone else comes at you with is immediately rejected.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Well, I got news for ya. I'm an ideologue, too, except my ideology is limited government that doesn't suppress anyone.

STU: Yeah, your ideology is limited government because you trust people.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."
