GLENN: The new governor of Texas, who is the last governor of Texas, Rick

Perry, just off his win is in New York. Sorry you have to leave Texas to come

New York.

PERRY: This is a great city and they need less taxes and less litigation and it

would be better place to come to.

GLENN: It would be nice if it were more like Texas. You are somebody that you

have a new book out called


Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington. You're a guy, Rick, and

I told you this before off the air and I will tell you on the air, I believe

Texas can lead the way out of this nightmare because Texans generally still get

it. A lot of America doesn't, but it's going to take it's going to take a man

with big boots to be able to stand against Washington.

PERRY: And that's really why I wrote the book. This book is about freedom. It's

about freedom from overtaxation, overregulation, overlitigation, yes. But it's

about freedom from a centralized government, putting what I consider to be

rather tyrannical pressures about the states. Telling us how to deliver

healthcare, telling us how to build our highways and educate our children and

the list goes on and on and that's not what our founding fathers had in mind for

us at all. They clearly enumerated those powers to the federal government and

said, you know, you states get out there and compete against each other and that

is what you are talking about in terms of Texas leading this country out of this

recession and forward  and doing it with freedom, freedom to let the

private sector work.

GLENN: I never had a problem with Massachusetts having their own healthcare

system. They want to have universal healthcare, they can have it all they want,

just don't force it down my throat and Texas should be allowed to buy insurance

across state lines, wherever they want and they should be able to invent what

they want to do in Texas. How do you break the spine of the federal government?

For instance, California, I'm telling you there will be a massive tax revolt. I

don't know when it will happen, but it will happen just like the Tea Party

started, it will happen at some point if California goes down the crapper after

electing Jerry Brown going on the same policies times ten and they start going

down the crapper. At some point, a group of people will stand up and say I am

not paying for my own destruction. You are destroying our wealth. You're

destroying our dollar. You're destroying our freedom. I'm not going to do it.

PERRY: They're already doing that and they're moving out of California to

Texas. 153 businesses since the first of the year, Glenn, have moved out of

California to Texas. That is happening all across the country.

GLENN: What do you do? You take on healthcare, education and education is off

the rails. How do you break the back of that?

PERRY: I think last Tuesday was the first indication that the American people

are ready to stand up and say to Washington we no longer want you messing in our

business. The Republicans elected to the House of Representatives, the work is

now in front of them. They must turn back the clock, if you will, on this Obama

Care. They must realize that we're not going to send more money to Washington,

D.C. and let them distribute it the way they think fit. One of our important

goals over the next two to four years is to really have a good, open, honest

discussion about things like Social Security because it is a Ponzi scheme. My

children are 27 and 24, and they know this thing is totally broken.

GLENN: This isn't how it works.

PERRY: 1981, cities in Texas opted out. Those people are well taken care of.

Let's have that discussion. I'm not afraid. Matter of fact, that's the reason,

you know, people ask me, will you run for the presidency of the United States? I

said no. I don't want that job. Have it best job in America. I wouldn't have

written this book if I were talking about running for the presidency of the

United States because there are some very, very sensitive issues in here, but

the fact is Americans want answers. They want solutions. They're in this book,

"Fed Up."

GLENN: OK give me one, give me the first thing that you think people have to do.

PERRY: Let's have a time out on spending. I mean, Washington, D.C. needs to

stand up and say, you know what, we're going to get this spending under control.

If the Republicans in Congress really want to send a powerful message, a time

out on spending, get it under control. Stop the earmarks.

GLENN: If you did that, if you had a chance of doing that, you wouldn't have a

president who is spending $2 billion to experience the Festival of Lights in

India. There's no chance of them. The president is not going to turn.

PERRY: Right. I don't think so.

GLENN: It's up to you guys.

PERRY: It's the Republicans in the House of Representatives and hopefully in

2012, it will be the Republicans in the U.S. Senate and a new president that

puts this country and Washington, but the governors in the states have to stand

up and say no when they try to blackmail you into taking money and changing the

way that you do business. We've done that in Texas. Unemployment insurance, $550

million they tried to send to us. Our money I might add coming back to the

states and I said no, because they wanted to change the way we put that program

into place. Race to the top, education money, sounds great. Everybody is for

racing to the top. Well, but the strings were attached. National standards,

national tests and I said no. Our legislature and the case of the unemployment,

the small businesses said Governor, you're right, we don't want to change the

way we do those. And that is what this discussion in the book Fed Up is all

about. Let the states get back to being the laboratories of innovation. Let the

states be where if you want to try out a new way to deliver healthcare, let me

tell you, Bobby Jindal in New Orleans, a bright, capable fella, and he will put

healthcare reform into place in Louisiana, and we'll go over and look at it and

go, you know what, that will work right there. This one won't, but that will. We

will take that and put that in our state. Look, I don't agree with issues like

medicinal marijuana. I don't agree with that, but if California wants to vote on

that and that's what they want to do in their state, they ought to be able to do

it.

GLENN: Right.

PERRY: The reason I joined the lawsuit against the federal government on the

Arizona law. It's not perfect by any sense of the imagination. There are things

in it that I don't want our legislature to do like creating a new cause of

action against our police officers, but it should be Arizona's sovereign right

to be able to do that.

GLENN: When it comes to the federal government not doing their primary job, and

that is, protect the borders, protect the people, if they're not doing it, the

constitution is not a suicide pact. By the things that they have done to the

states, they are putting us in a suicidal position. A governor has to decide.

Governor, the day that California defaults and the United States government has

to bail them out and just has to take it over. Basically, you lose the star on

the flag because now the federal government is just paying for everything.

They'll say that it's the eighth largest economy in the world. It can't. It's

too big to fail. You can't let them fail. What do you say on that day?

PERRY: That's one of the reasons that I worked as hard as I could for Meg

Whitman. Unfortunately, the people of California what we say that day is that's

their issue. They've got to deal with that. That's not Texas. I mean, we're

going to continue to be a place where their businesses move and at the end of

the day, California may fail

GLENN: It will.

PERRY: The job creators will be living in Texas or other states like ours

GLENN: Let me ask you this question. I'm just I'm not going to have my company

here in New York forever. Texas is a place that I would move. However, honestly,

Texas, the border is so out of control and you have you have hostiles down in

South America that would love all the communists and all that stuff is coming

over the border. You know it and I know it. You have Al Qaeda and worse coming

over. You and I both know it. And then you have a drug system that is armed and

equipped by the United States government.

PERRY: And in charge of over a thousand miles of the U.S. Mexico border. They

have operational control of over a thousand miles of the border. That's our

department of Homeland Security.

GLENN: How does Texas remain safe?

PERRY: It is a great concern to us, and at the end of the day, it's a federal

responsibility. We spent $230 million of Texas taxpayer money over the last two

legislative sessions. You know,, we only meet every other year for 140 days and

again, in my book, I talk about maybe that is one of the things that the feds

need to look at, too, a meet every other year to deal with these issues rather

all the time. Getting back to the border we have increased our assistance to the

Sheriffs and the local police departments. We have a Texas Ranger recon team

that we constituted and put down there. I have national guard troops and various

insundry roles, and it's not our responsibility to defend that border. You know,

my dad, who is a wise man, said three things the federal government should get

really well. Three things that they have great responsibility for, deliver the

mail, preferably on Saturdays and on time, defend our border and have the

military. The third thing is the only thing we get right out of those three. The

federal government needs to quit doing everything else that they're doing until

they get those two right. Defend our border. Put the troops on the border. I've

asked since 2005, Glenn, I asked the department of defense to put predator

drones. We train our pilots in those drones every day and they're flying

somewhere up and down with all the bells and whistles, infrared, forward

looking, none of that information.

GLENN: But they won't do anything.

PERRY: None of that information is being used for law enforcement purposes. You

can secure that border. It requires a commitment. It requires focus. It requires

boots on the ground, the technologies you can defend. Strategic fencing in

metropolitan areas, it works. You can secure that border and then you know what,

we can have a debate about immigration reform at that time. You can't until

then.

GLENN: The name of the book is


Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington by the Governor of Texas,

Rick Perry. Always good to see you.

PERRY: Thank you.

 

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
