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.

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."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
