Law of 1812



GLENN: Well, hopefully that won't happen. I mean, you got -- I mean, look. Say what you want about pedophiles, but there is no case of anyone being cured. You molest a 7-year-old child, there is no case where someone has been cured of it. I think you've crossed a line that you just can't recover from. I personally believe the law should be changed that it is mandatory life that if you are -- you know, you're molesting a 7-year-old, an 8-year-old, a 10-year-old, you're in for life. But a lot of people will tell you that that's too harsh. I don't understand how it could be. You think that's too harsh, Dan?

DAN: No, way. The kid's scarred for life. So I --

GLENN: Do you think that's too harsh, Stu?

STU: No.

GLENN: What is the line? What's the line? Stu I mean, I don't --

GLENN: Here's where it gets fuzzy. Here's where it gets fuzzy. Like that case of the guy in, where is it, Georgia, that was 17 and she was 13, he was 16 and she was 13. She was about to turn 14.

STU: Yeah, this is the football player, right?

GLENN: Yeah, and he's now got a -- he is a sexual criminal because she was, like, two weeks away or something like that from her birthday where she would have been legal to do it. I think I agree with the Adam Walsh law which is, got to be a four-year spread and under 13, I think.

STU: I know there are -- all these laws are different. Each state has really, you know, varying laws.

GLENN: I believe the Adam Walsh law is under 13.

STU: Definitely, no matter what.

GLENN: No matter what, under 13 and four years different. So in other words, if she is 14 and you're 16, it's not -- you're not a sexual predator. You're not a child molester. I think you are -- I mean, a 16-year-old preying on a 14-year-old, if you got a problem with that, then we should probably revisit the Nineties where you had a 50-year-old President preying on a 20-year-old. It's a power sort of thing.

STU: There is that distinction. Every one of us, when you went to high school, there was always those guys who were Juniors hitting on all the Freshmen. And how long young are Freshmen when they get into high school? 15?

GLENN: Hold on. Please do not include Dan in this conversation because it will go to Billy Joel. You did it. I wasn't even there. Please, please do not include him in this.

STU: But I do think there is -- I mean, I was about to stand up for -- there is the line of adulthood. You can do whatever the hell you want once you're 18.

GLENN: You're crazy or whatever, but, you know, that's totally fine. But 13, I think if you're a 12-year-old and he's 20, he's, you know, he's 17.

STU: I don't know, man. 13 and 17, there is no excuse for that, is there? 13 and 17? I mean, 13 you are talking, what, a Junior in high school?

GLENN: Again I stand by the four-year -- this is the Adam Walsh law, the four-year, under 13.

STU: I think most laws are tighter than that. I want to say a lot of these laws that do have the separation like that are two years, I think. Four years is a long time. Four years. To me honestly when you go back and think about your childhood as you are growing up, the line always was the school, wasn't it?

GLENN: Wait, wait. What I'm talking about is --

STU: Wasn't it?

GLENN: What I'm talking about is life.

STU: Right.

GLENN: I'm talking about life. You know what I mean? So you don't have a mandatory life sentence lightly. It's got to be crystal, crystal clear.

STU: I agree. I don't think that it's --

GLENN: So I think maybe 18, 18 and four-year spread -- no. Just anything over 18 or 17 probably and anybody younger than 13, done.

STU: Yeah, if you are going 18, 12.

GLENN: If you are 18 and you are going 12, done, done. Yeah, the war on 18/12, I think that's what it is. And over 18/12, the over/under of 18/12.

STU: I love this bill. That's a great catchy name for it and everything.

GLENN: Yeah, the war of 18/12. We should start that.

STU: That is a great bill.

GLENN: It is. And anybody over 18 messing with anything 12 or under, mandatory life.

STU: Bye-bye.

GLENN: I don't care about, oh, well, he was only 18. Don't care. War of 18/12. You learn it while you're in history, you learn it all in school. 18/12, 18/12. A year and four digits that you should never, ever forget.

STU: And there's a lot of other -- I mean, that doesn't mean you don't get anything for 18/15. You are still getting plenty of stuff to me.

GLENN: Life in prison. I'm talking about life in prison. Anytime you mess with a kid, you're 40 years old and you are with, you know, a 12-year-old, done. You are with a 13 -- life in prison, no questions asked. You are 40 and you are messing with a 13-year-old

STU: Still done.

GLENN: You are still done. You may not get -- the judge can give you life. You don't necessarily automatically get it. Or should --

STU: You should have a four-year rule, though. 13 can only go up to 17 in your rule.

GLENN: This is going to take you to Billy Joel. You do not want to go there.

STU: No, anything above -- the legal age of consent in most states is 16. Once you are above the legal age of consent, you can do whatever you want. But what I'm talking about, when you are talking about 13, I don't care if you're --

GLENN: Okay, okay. Hang on, hang on. 18/12.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: And anything over 18, under 16.

STU: 18/12, over 18 -- so you are saying 18 -- I gave you 18/15 would be a Freshman/Senior situation in high school. I don't know if you'd get life in prison for that. I'm not saying you don't get punished. You do --

DAN: What about 18/14 because that could be a senior/Freshman situation, too.

GLENN: Wait, wait. Got it. 18/12, 19/16. Both war years. We go to war 1812, 1916 .

STU: If you tune in to C-Span, this is exactly how they argue out bills. This is the Government right here at work.

GLENN: Think about it. I've got to take a break. So 18/12, if you are 18 and above, anything under 12. 19, over 19, got to be 16. Like congress we're going to take a break. Our summer session is over. We'll start another session soon.


GLENN: 888-727-BECK. 888-727-BECK. All right. Stu said in the break we don't need a 19/16 rule. We just need an 18/12 rule.

STU: War. 1812, keep it simple. That's the main law.

GLENN: Wait a minute. What we're trying to do is come up with a law that makes you have life in prison if you're molesting a child.

STU: Yes. And the law is 1812, if you are 18 or older and you have sex with someone who is 12 or younger, you are automatically serving life if you are convicted.

GLENN: But that doesn't cover a 40-year-old having sex with a 13-year-old.

STU: No, it doesn't. This is not the be all, end all law. You also said in there that you wanted a four-year law meaning that if you were going to have sex with a 13-year-old, you had to be 17 or younger to not get life.

GLENN: Yeah. That's part of the Adam Walsh thing.

STU: And again, that doesn't mean you don't get anything. I don't want to give this impression that, hey, 17 and 13, it's fair game. It's not at all. But we might not put you in prison for life.

GLENN: Yeah, you have to have a mandatory life. You don't put a guy who's 40 years old in the jail for life for having sex with a 13-year-old?

STU: Oh, yeah, but that's more than four years difference. All that's covered. This law covers that.

GLENN: No, it only would cover somebody having sex with under 12.

STU: No, it also has -- we talked about the four-year stipulation, again.

GLENN: I'm not willing to put somebody in. Billy Joel would go to jail.

DAN: She was like 20.

STU: Glenn, you would go to jail on a four-year stipulation. I'm talking about under the age of con sent, of 16. So --

GLENN: Then you need the 16 law in there.

STU: No, you don't. There's the 16-year-old age of consent. It's a separate law. You've got the age of consent, say, is 16. You can have sex -- if your age of consent law is 16 or older --

GLENN: What you are saying is we should enforce the laws we already have. This is too hard to understand.

STU: But then also implement an 1812 life in prison law.

DAN: It's going to keep getting out. That's the problem. They are all out there still.

GLENN: So age of consent would be covered on the four-year stipulation. Because that way if you are 20 and having sex with a 16-year-old or you are 19 and having sex with a 15-year-old, you are not going to go life in prison. You might get a punishment but you are not going to --

STU: But 2015 would be your line. That's a rough line because that is -- you could probably have a high school situation where a guy who stayed back --

GLENN: I wouldn't mind.

STU: -- several times.

GLENN: Several times.

STU: Like 100 times.

GLENN: That's how you met Lisa, isn't it?


Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
