Completely Friendless...Again

GLENN: By the way, I want you to know we're completely friendless. We've done it yet again. Do you know that?

STU: Do I know it? Yes, I know it. I listen to this program.

GLENN: We've done it again. We're not going to -- it doesn't matter. Romney could win. Have you noticed how Romney has -- what he's been saying lately?

STU: What about?

GLENN: About talk shows?



Glenn... Alone and friendless once again...

STU: No.

GLENN: Yeah. He's like, Rush Limbaugh is supporting me, is coming out for me; Laura Ingraham has been supporting me, Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity, Bill Bennett, Skippy Johanson.

STU: Well, you haven't endorsed anyone. You are not an endorser.

DAN: Yeah, to be fair, Glenn, they have called and asked if you were going to endorse and you have not. So --

GLENN: Has Rush Limbaugh endorsed Romney?

STU: I don't know if he's endorsed specifically.

GLENN: See, that's what I mean.

DAN: I haven't seen where he said that.

GLENN: I don't think he's endorsed. I think Hugh Hewitt has endorsed him.

STU: I know Hannity said something of the effect of if I had to vote for him today, I would vote for him.

DAN: I think Hannity was a little stronger than that.

GLENN: I'm changing. I'm not voting for Romney.

STU: Come on, shut up. If he sends you a gift basket, would that help?

GLENN: If he sent me a gift basket. Mitt, you send me a gift basket, I might go to the polls today. I'm going to probably stand there in Connecticut because I can't actually vote because I'm not a Republican, but I might stand there, along with all the Ron Paul supporters who are standing. They're everywhere in Connecticut. There are signs everywhere. There are no bed sheets left in Connecticut. They are all -- I don't know what anybody's sleeping on. I think I might have been the only person in Connecticut that actually slept on a bedsheet last night because they are all hanging over the freeway. It's nice. It's like, welcome to Connecticut, home of white trash. You know, it's like, do you remember when our mothers -- you guys are probably too young for this. Mom used to have the clothespins. Grandma used to have the clothespins and she would hang the sheets out in the backyard on the, you know, on the clothesline. That's what I feel like we're living in, except all of our sheets, instead of having Snoopy patterns or something like that, they all say revolution, but they do say love backwards, which is really cool.

STU: Yeah, Ron Paul not going to be a factor today unfortunately for his supporters.

GLENN: Don't count it out.

DAN: He is doing well in the Internet polls.

STU: He is doing well in internet polls. It doesn't seem to correlate for whatever reason but he did come in 2nd in Nevada but he is not going to challenge that in any state tonight. Unless the polls are all wrong. Maybe they are. They have shown that before.

DAN: You missed it here, Glenn, on this program. Ron Paul's, his piece for the Glenn Beck newsletter went out on Friday when you were not here. It was a very good piece on the economy but apparently not moving his votes.

GLENN: What did it -- how did it read?

DAN: Did very well. It was a good read. It was a good read.

STU: You seem a little out of sorts today, Glenn, I've got to say. Is everything okay?

GLENN: I'm fine. What do you mean I seem a little out of sorts?

STU: I don't know. You just seem a little -- I don't know. You just seem a little off kilter.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Is this the first break back?

GLENN: I did have a scope from my mouth to my ass yesterday. I mean, that might have --

STU: That's not necessary. No one needs to -- no one needs to know that. Can you not tell anyone ever again? Is that possible?

GLENN: I'm just saying that might have done it. Wouldn't it do it to you? You would be like, I don't know, I'm a little out of sorts.

STU: Well, maybe that's it.

GLENN: Had a camera and a little claw where they are just picking like --

STU: All right, all right, we got it. We got it. Thank you.

GLENN: Picking strawberries inside of me.

STU: All right. Thank you for that. No one --

GLENN: I'm just saying.

STU: You just lost three quarters of our audience.

GLENN: We don't have any audience left.

STU: Now we're down to two people.

GLENN: Here is the thing. Is that you or Dan and me?

STU: Well, Sarah's long gone.

GLENN: Yeah. Because I'm barely listening now anyway. Did you see what happened with Rush Limbaugh and the Washington Post this weekend? He said, quote, I believe the country will suffer with either Hillary, Obama or McCain. I would just as soon Democrats take the hit rather than Republicans causing the debacle.

Here's the key. This is exactly what I said two weeks ago on this program: I would prefer not to have conservative Republicans in congress paralyzed by having to support, out of party loyalty, a Republican President who's not a conservative. And that's the problem. You know what, I spoke to the young Republicans out in Idaho over the weekend. I have to tell you about an amazing -- I did this fundraiser for this family, the Clark family, something absolutely amazing. In fact, we have to try to get Ted Nugent on the phone today. Something amazing happened before this fundraiser started.

I got up and, under doctor's orders, he said bed rest and go speak to the Republicans. So I did. I spoke to the Young Republicans at a university, and I think they expected -- I mean, quite honestly the leader of the young Republicans went... when I said, I'm voting for Hillary Clinton over John McCain. He went a little white but, you know, they kept asking me: What exactly do we do? How do we get back on track? What do we do? Here was my answer: You need to define what you are.

See, here's the problem with the Republicans right now. Nobody knows what they are. They don't know what they are. You can't -- you know what they are trying to do? They've got a bunch of machinery and they are not even sure what they're building. They think they're building a car but they are not really sure because nobody has gone back and looked at the plans and said, okay, here's how we're going to design it, here's how we're going to build it, here's how it's different, here's how we're going to make it faster or more fuel economic. They don't even know what they're doing. Somebody has to step back, and it's going to take the young Republicans because I think it's going to take a while for this to repair itself.

I'm going to make a prediction later on in the program on what I think's going to happen on Super Tuesday. I've got to think it through. Stu says I'm out of sorts. They were picking stuff out of my stomach.

STU: See, this is what I'm talking about. This is the part we don't need to know. I mean, people might be interested. People might be interested in your prediction about Super Tuesday.

GLENN: It's sitting in a jar some placements

STU: They are not interested in what's in a jar. None of them are. They all hate hearing about it, all of them.

GLENN: Doctor said could be cancer. Doctor said I don't -- could be -- I don't know, could be mushed up Special K. I'm not sure.

STU: This is terrible. Why are you breaking -- why are you talking about this? Can't you talk about -- there's a huge election going on today. That's what people are talking about.

GLENN: I'm trying to talk about it. You keep interrupting.

STU: I'm not interrupting. You --

GLENN: So here's the thing. So here's what I told them. They have got to go back and center themselves in values. What is everybody doing? Everybody's looking at John McCain. They are selling out their values because they are like, he can win, he can win. I don't want to win. I don't want to win if we're going to sell out everything we stand for. Guys, we won in 2004. Is that a good thing? Look what we've got. We've got prescription frickin' drugs. We've got a budget that's out of control. We've got a border that's out of control. We have border agents in jail. We've got a President who is actually supporting an illegal alien in the Supreme Court that could change all of our laws and make us bow down and worship the Hague. I don't know if that's a good thing. Well, mild there. I know that's a bad thing! We don't win to win, but that's what made us different, you know? I thought if our President was going to lie under oath, even if it was about sex, we would throw his ass out. We don't want him there. We stand for something. And the minute you stop standing for something, you lose in the end. You might win short-term but you're going to lose in the end. And here's the real problem. There's nobody as an example, there's nobody. The college Republicans are being beat over the head by their liberal professors. They are being beat over the head with socialism and incorrect principles. They are being beat over the head by the media. They are all now too young to really remember Ronald Reagan. They don't even know what conservatives stand for. They don't even know what it means. A Republican to them is what we've had for the last eight years. They barely remember the Newt Gingrich revolution.

It's time the Republicans find their soul. It's time the Republicans find their values. It's time the Republicans -- you know, what's crazy to me is conservatives are made to look like they're so far right. They're not. They're not. It's that the country has moved so far left. If you study history. If you go and read what our country was like just 100 years ago, there was a movement, a Progressive movement that is now fully flowering to move us away from the principles that we got started with. This isn't who America is. This is who we've allowed ourselves to become. And I don't want to be that person. I don't want to be that country. That's not who we are. We're not out of step with the mainstream. The mainstream has been duped. The mainstream doesn't know what it is anymore.

How do you think Ronald -- do you think we're really that different from when Ronald Reagan ran? We're not. Why is Obama winning right now? Why is Obama sweeping -- do you think Obama is sweeping up now because he's the most liberal senator in the Senate? Think of that. The most liberal senator in the Senate. Do you think he's cleaning house right now, at a time of war with no war experience, because of his record? He's cleaning house because he's exciting. He's cleaning house because he's a good speaker. He's cleaning house because "It says something about me that I voted for him."

I think it was in the New York Times today. This woman says, "I'm so excited. We win either way. It's either a woman or an African-American." What about the policies, America? I don't want John McCain in office. I don't want a Republican in office unless they truly understand Republican, what used to be Republican principles. If they don't understand real conservative principles and they have the cohones -- yes, I'm bilingual -- to actually implement them. Otherwise what difference does it make? What difference does it make? We all end up in the same place and we're running out of time, gang.

The Moment of Trump's Conversion: Dr Anthony Fauci Takes Full Responsibility https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/30/anthony-fauci-moment-donald-trump-realized-extend-social-distancing-mandate/
  • Dr Anthony Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the coronavirus task force, explained on CNN that Trump listened and "got it right away" after being shown new data projecting as many as 3 Million deaths in the US if COVID-19 mitigation policies were lifted.
  • Fauci also said Trump's "first goal is to prevent suffering and death" and this was part of the reason why he knew the COVID-19 guidelines should be extended.
  • "You know, interestingly, we showed him the data, he looked at the data and he got it right away, it was a pretty clear picture," according to Fauci.
  • "Dr. Debbie Birx and I went in together and leaned over his desk and said 'Here is the data, take a look.'
  • Trump reportedly looked at them, understood the implications and he shook his head and said 'I guess we got to do it.'
  • "Medically, this is the right decision, and I stand behind it 100%," Fauci said.
  • "From a public health standpoint, we felt strongly that it would have been the wrong decision to pull back," Fauci said. "I mean, we are scientists, physicians, public health officials. We're not economists. We're sensitive to the idea that the economy could suffer, but weigh that against tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of American lives."
  • "...it was patently obvious looking at the data that at the end of the day if we try to push back prematurely, not only would we lose lives, but it probably would hurt the economy as well. So you would lose on double accounts. So, to us, there was no question what the right choice was."
