Caller turns away from cynicism in emotional conversation with Glenn

Glenn has a very touching phone call from a listener today, and she explained to Glenn how she went from a cynic to a believer on radio today.

"I have been following you for many, many years, since you were really hilarious back in the day," she said. "And along the way as you started getting more serious, I kind of turned on you.  You know, when you say my own audience has turned on me, when you said that a few weeks ago or days ago, I was like, yeah, that's me, you know."

"Not like in a savage 'I hate Glenn Beck' kind of way.  Kind of like, okay, here comes another book, you know, how many books are you going to put out, you know.  How many dollars do you want to make kind of way."

She described how she would meet new fans who were just discovering Glenn, and warned them that he would eventually disappoint them along the way. "You know, I'm a cynic.  The world I lived in, live in has taught me not to believe in people.  And it was easier to not believe and to expect to be disappointed than to put it out there and have the possibility of getting your toes stepped on again, you know?  You get stepped on so many times in life."

What made her change her mind?

"I watched the making of the GBTV and I was just, I was touched.  I was moved, you know.  You're going out into towns and creating a means for them to survive and a means for them to pull together and rescue themselves, and it just struck me that, how much you really believe in what you're doing and what you're saying.  It's not ‑‑ it's not what I thought it was.  It's not, you know, some grand show for another dollar or, you know, some kind of media empire or, you know, to be known in history books.  And I just, you know, I'm sorry.  I don't know you, but I feel like I know you because I've listened to you for so many years, and I don't think I've been fair.

"And the other thing that I wanted to tell you and then I'll get off the phone, and you can take this how you want it.  I'm not a perfect person, but I have my gifts and talents like everybody else and I just, I just feel like I ought to tell you that your reward is great, Glenn. Your reward is really great."

Glenn was taken aback by the call, and said it was one of the more meaningful conversations he had with a listener in a while. Why? Because it touches on where he is moving over the next few months and years. "That is where my heart is, and it is from that belief of Wilmington, that Americans are good; they just need the path. They just need to see a standard. They need to see something up on a hill. It's the shining city on the hill. That if they can see it, they will do it. If they can see it and they see others moving in that direction, they will do it. And I know we can pull ourselves out of it. I know who we are, and I know all the stumbling blocks as well."

"When I said to you a year ago, or at the beginning of this year, I'm tired of waiting around for somebody else, it is exactly like Israel. Israel's going to cost anywhere from $5 to $10 million to do. I don't have the money, but we're doing it. And I'm moving forward on divine providence. I believe in the protection of divine providence. What needs to be done will be done, and the money will come."

And Glenn said the same thing would happen with the charity project he is moving forward on. " I know it will happen. And we will create jobs. And we will turn one town around. And then that will inspire others. And we'll turn another town around, and another and another and another. You will not be able to extinguish the free enterprise. You will not be able to extinguish the idea that man can make his own way. You will not be able to take away man's freedom for long because it is not freedom that belongs to man. It is His freedom. Nobody loses against him. Nobody. He wins every single time. I trust divine providence."

'Like Hunter Biden without the hookers': Why did Nancy Pelosi's son REALLY join Taiwan trip?

Nearly everyone, from President Joe Biden to the head of the United Nations, agreed that California Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan was dangerous. Even former President Barack Obama's ambassador to China, Max Baucus, said Pelosi's actions made Biden look even weaker than he already does — and that's really saying something.

So, why did Pelosi risk global war and go against her own party? If you listen to Politco, she's got a "decades-long" beef with China and just wanted to show support for the Asian nation, but the timing of her trip suggests there’s likely more to the story.

On "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposed the Pelosi family's (including her son) lucrative connections to Taiwanese companies and revealed how certain business deals directly related to their trip to Taiwan.

"Nancy Pelosi and her husband and their son ... they love money as a family. By the way, did you know her son went on that trip and was doing business with, oh, wow, some of the people she was meeting with? Did you know that?" Glenn asked. "Sounds a little like Hunter Biden without the hookers and the crack."

Glenn pointed out that when Pelosi was elected to Congress, "somewhere in the late 1700s," her net worth was about $3 million, but by 2008 her family's wealth had ballooned to $31 million. By the end of the Obama term, her wealth had doubled to $61 million, and just two years later it shot up to $114 million.

"Wow! That is not bad beans for a meager public servant. They [Pelosi and her husband] must be master investors and it just took getting elected to public office to truly unlock that secret," Glenn quipped. "Or they were privy to some sort of information that the rest of us don't have access to, kinda like the sale of $5 million in computer chip stock before Congress voted on a recent semiconductor bill," he continued.

"But, surely, Taiwan has nothing to do with their own little private cash machine, right? ... I'm sure it had nothing to do with her husband's stock trading of companies that make computer chips. And it has nothing to do with, at the same time, Nancy is working on a semiconductor bill. It surely has nothing to do with the fact that the largest semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, is right there in Taiwan, right? I mean, surely, with all of this heat, Nancy Pelosi would be smart enough not to be seen anywhere near Taiwan's semiconductor manufacturers," Glenn said.

"I'm not saying this might double the Pelosis' millions again, but I'm not not saying that either, you know?" he added.



On the radio program, Glenn continued to break down the hushed business deals between the Pelosi family and Taiwanese companies and revealed how it all directly relates to their not-at-all suspicious trip to the Asian nation.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.
