At the end of today’s show, we talk with Glenn Beck about the State of the Union and the state of the media, but we start with the insanity of the “Green New Deal” — there’s not much new and it isn’t a good deal. Also, congressional “progressives” want to defund Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and think the U.S. “tortures” immigrants, while Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says illegals “deserve to have access to our Bill of Rights.” All that and more on today’s show.
Watch the video interview with Glenn Beck:
Listen to the whole show:
The “Green New Deal” is the Red’s dream — near-complete government control over every aspect of the lives of Americans. To try to sell this non-binding resolution to the public, progressives tossed in freebees for almost everyone: college, housing, healthy food, and reparations for almost everyone (not white men), and free unicorns. It’s more insane than it seems.
Progressives held a press conference calling for the defunding of ICE, with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar claiming ICE agents torture illegal aliens and Ocasio-Cortez insisting illegals have “access to our Bill of Rights” if they set one foot on U.S. soil. Presumably she doesn’t mean the Second Amendment, which she’d like to deny to Americans, but who knows? We have the audio.
We also give an update on the soap opera that is the Democratic Party in Virginia. Neither of the blackface-wearing Democrats have resigned yet, nor has the Democrat accused of sexually assaulting a woman. The state party released a statement claiming their problems weren’t their problems, but society’s problems. They aren’t. Society didn’t wear blackface, those Democrats did. Society isn’t accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the 2004 DNC, the Lt. governor is. Liberals always try to push off their problems on everyone else to deflect from their own actions. We don’t let them get away with it.
Then we catch up with Glenn Beck and hear what it was like to be in the gallery for the State of the Union address. We also learn how and why he got into radio in the first place, as well as talk about the state of journalism today — whatever happened to the “news” part of cable news?
All that and more.
