No Respect?

GLENN: I'm here now with a gentleman that John McCain said, and I want to quote him exactly. He wasn't really one of the most respected senators when he was in the Senate.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Thank you, thank you.


 


 GLENN: Rick Santorum, how are you?


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Thank you, I'm doing great.


 


 GLENN: I would take that as a compliment. If John McCain, if John McCain didn't like you, that's a badge of honor.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Well, I don't know if I would say John McCain didn't like me but obviously he didn't respect me.


 


 GLENN: You don't care. You can like me, just don't respect me. Are you that cheap?


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: I don't think we need to get personal, do we, Glenn? I mean, you know, this is no reason to do that. It's just a matter of respect.


 


 GLENN: I think I would rather have the respect than like.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Yeah. Me, too. I know, I didn't know how you don't get respected and get elected by your colleagues three times as the third ranking member of the Republican Senate.


 


 GLENN: Let me tell you something, Rick --


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Didn't respect me, -- doesn't mean they didn't like me.


 


 GLENN: Rick, let me tell you something. You were the third in the Senate, I'm the third most listened to. Anyone can be number three.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: You know what, I never really thought of it that way. Thank you.


 


 GLENN: Yeah. This isn't good for your self-esteem today, is it?


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: This is really the message to hear. I appreciate it. I'll talk to you later, Glenn.


 


 GLENN: You are like me. This week I wanted to pull my car into the garage, bring the door down, unroll the windows and just listen to some music. You know what I'm saying? Holy cow.


 


 Okay, let's start with what happened yesterday at CPAC.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: I think I have not talked to Governor Romney, we've had a couple of misses. All I can say is the California situation, I think this was really a blow to him and, you know, we were coming out of there with virtually no delegates, put McCain in a position there. We were talking before super Tuesday that, you know, McCain was at 600, 700 delegates, he still was, you know, just a little bit better than halfway there and there was still a chance to get this thing to a convention by picking up a little moment up after Super Tuesday when he had really just a huge sweep of delegates in California, was over 800 delegates, 2/3 of the way there, still half the delegates to pick but when you're 2/3 of the way there and you are 500 or 600 votes ahead of the other guy, it just wasn't happen. So I think Governor Romney did what I think he said. He was going to fight where there wasn't really a chance for him to win anymore. And, you know, look. He did. He fought very hard. He sacrificed a lot, including a lot of his own money and he gave it a good fight and it just wasn't there.


 


 GLENN: You know, I talked to Governor Romney, you know, in one of our secret meetings in the basements of our churches where we were making lime Jell-O with, you know, carrot shreds in them and I said to him, you know, uphill battle, and this was right before Florida. And he said, if I don't make Florida, I just don't know how we're going to be able to make it, I just don't think that it's going to happen. So I think he put on a brave face for Super Tuesday because the polls showed California. But when California was done, he was done.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Yeah, I don't see -- I mean, I talked to him. I was on the plane with him on Sunday and Monday traveling with him to Missouri and Tennessee and Georgia and they were hitting all these polls saying he was ahead in California. I'm just scratching my head and saying, I don't see -- I mean, I'm not in California enough to know. There's some conservatives out there but there are a heck of a lot more moderates and liberals in the Republican party in Californian there are conservatives and I don't see how Mitt Romney, you know, pulls it off and I think it wasn't there but he -- I mean, he fought to the end.


 


 GLENN: I think there was enough. Where he -- you know, I think the problem was, and I think where he could have connected in California is on the economy and I just don't think he hit that early enough and he didn't -- he just didn't connect strongly enough with "I'm the guy to turn the country around and here's what's coming."


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Yeah, I think you are absolutely right. I mean, he's, you know, really the guru of venture capital world out there. This is a guy who, you know, really understands what makes companies tick, how do you create jobs. I mean, how do you turn companies around, how do you -- the guy's brilliant.


 


 GLENN: Yeah.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: And he had a great economic plan and, you know, he looks the part of someone who knows what he's -- is in charge. And I don't know. I think almost the issue sort of came up late. I mean, you know the last couple of months is when the economy started to turn and I'm not sure they adjusted their message. I think they still tried to appeal sort of the rock conservative base, that was the campaign that he was focused on and I think he could have broadened his base had he really focused more on the economic message but, you know, maybe next time.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
