Exposed: Hillary's racist agenda

GLENN: Well, it's Friday. So I thought we would spend just a couple of minutes just looking to see how stupid some liberals really can be.

STU: I disagree with this analysis. They have caught us in something.

GLENN: Oh, have they? Is this just a blog, Stu? Is this what this is?

STU: I believe it's a college newspaper, Glenn.

GLENN: Oh, it's a college -- it's a college -- this is from the Lantern.

STU: This is a college-educated --

GLENN: Oh, this is from Frank Blechschmidt. He is a junior in economics and journalism.

STU: We should point out he is, A, our favorite Blechschmidt and, B, yes, a journalist in training, a person who will be a journalist.

GLENN: He will graduate to be a journalist and he's from Ohio State University and here is the -- and Adam's looking through the door because his son graduated from Ohio. He's like... yeah, and you paid lots of money for that education, my friend.

STU: Poor Adam.

GLENN: Here it is. Here's the story.

STU: Wait it. We love it. We absolutely love it. We're just learning about journalists named Blechschmidt.

GLENN: It's actually Blechschmidt. Yeah, Frank Blechschmidt. He should probably change his name.

Beck's antics pollute airwaves and TV.

STU: You're slandering. That means you are saying something that's untrue. Maybe you didn't understand.

GLENN: No, no. "If you've wandered down High Street lately," and I bet Frank might have been wandering down High Street lately based just on his journalism, "you may have most likely seen the advertisements for Glenn Beck on Headline News with words 'Cut the crap' written in bold letters on the side of buses." By the way, has anybody else noticed that they have put my head, you know, right on the word "Crap" they have my head right there where the -- well, where the A hole is.

STU: What a surprise.

GLENN: Listen. Anyway, "for those unfamiliar with Beck, he is the opinionated host of the heavily conservative radio show the Glenn Beck program which can be seen weeknights on CNN Headline News. Personally I enjoy tuning in to his show every once in a while just to see what crazy hypocritical things he has to say and because the media lacks well balanced political opinion radio shows. Last week, however, he said something that made me fear for the wellbeing of voters and their exposure to slanted media coverage. On his radio show Wednesday, Beck went on for about 20 minutes, a 20 minute rant on how Hillary Clinton is racist and anyone who supports her or her policies is probably racist, too."

I remember this routine.

STU: I remember this.

GLENN: This was a good monologue.

STU: Right. I mean, you know, we had the facts.

GLENN: Yeah. "His proof? First, he said, is her policy to remove troops from Iraq is racist and only benefits whites because the Army is 71% white and only 11% black."

We've got to get Frank on the phone. I've got his e-mail address. I don't want to give it out on air. I've got to have Frank on the phone on Monday.

STU: You don't want -- wait a minute. You don't want --

GLENN: What?

STU: Isn't it on the Internet? You are not getting it from some secret source? You are not good buddies?

GLENN: No, no, I want people to write and just say, you dope.

STU: I don't want to ruin it. I kind of want to talk to him when he still thinks it's real.

GLENN: Should I black out his e-mail address when we put it in the newsletter?

GLENN: Okay. "Next he said her policy to raise taxes on the rich clearly hurts minorities and the American dream because 7 out of the 10 ten richest athletes are black and one is Hispanic."

STU: How could anyone believe that's a legitimate point?

GLENN: You know what? Because these people really truly believe that we're this stupid. You know what I mean? They just have -- well, first of all he's got to be a pinhead. No, oh, my gosh, wait a minute. Maybe I'm doing the same thing. Maybe this is a parody on my parody.

STU: I did think about that. And maybe it is.

STU: It's so horribly -- it's so dumb that maybe it is a joke. But again we don't know.

GLENN: Okay. "He also had similar outrageous claims of racism in regard to healthcare reform. Finally" -- this is it, man. I mean, listen to this. "Finally he even went as far as to contend that Hillary's lack of support for oil and coal companies has an underlying racist sentiment as well because oil and coal are black." How do you possibly think that this was -- this is -- America, this is the future generation. This is the future of journalism.

STU: Again, I mean, in case you happened to miss this and your name is not Frank --

GLENN: Blechschmidt. Blechschmidt.

STU: The point of it was look how easily you can make these accusations.

GLENN: The whole point was that all you have to do is cherry-pick a few things and you can make these claims. It's so easy to do it. And so we turned -- we used their tactic. But just because we wanted to show you how ridiculous the tactic is, I pointed out coal and oil is also black.

STU: He was really appalled by that one, by the way.

GLENN: I know. He says wow. That's all he says, wow. That's his whole line, wow. "Although Beck repeatedly said he was merely providing the facts," -- I said it like this, too. I'm just telling you the facts here. Really, oil and coal, she's against it! It's black!

"He's obviously ignoring the fact that according the 2000 census, 75% of the American population is white." This guy went and Googled facts to take apart -- it's like doing an -- it's like spending hours googling facts to disprove that Kenny has been killed yet again on South Park.

STU: He was never really alive. He's animated!

GLENN: He's a cartoon and they killed him last episode. I don't think he's ever been killed! "I'm not trying to get on the soapbox to promote Hillary Clinton, but she was clearly being victimized. She is not a racist. Her policies are pretty sympathetic toward minorities if you ask me. In reality Beck is just the latest in a long line of conservative spin doctors.

STU: That's really, by the way, he's letting you know what reality is, this guy. Just call it educated journalist of the future.

GLENN: "These pundits will always be around and that's fine, it's a free country. I just hope anyone listening to his show or similar shows during this election season" -- listen to this from Frank Blechschmidt. "At least I want you to know I hope that anyone listening to his show this election season will think critically before they believe what they hear. Frank, I hope so too. Most college students can easily find the flaws in these skewed arguments."

STU: (Laughing). Yes, most of them can.

GLENN: My 3-year-old son Rafe could find a flaw in Hillary Clinton's racist because she is against drilling for oil because it's black. "With our nation's economy and foreign relations in shambles, voters should not cast their ballots based on their favorite pundit's opinion. But unfortunately with the Democratic primary you're going to have to face a barrage of twisted arguments from people such as Beck."

STU: Luckily, Glenn, it's not these stupid talk show listeners.

GLENN: He just wants to know that there's plenty of time to cut the crap. All I have to do to be successful is to cut out the facts and the logic. Why should I do that Frank, you've already done it.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?
