Glenn's staff ruins irreplaceable fishbowl hand painted and autographed by Orson Welles

What would you pay for this fishbowl now? Tell us HERE

Every morning, Glenn gathers his producers into his office in Dallas (NY joins via video chat) and lays out his plans for the day. Usually its a pretty uneventful, but today Glenn stopped mid-sentence, walked across the room going "Oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no!" before picking up a fishbowl calling out for his assistant Julie. The producers were silent, wondering why Glenn was suddenly freaking out over a fishbowl. And then he revealed that it was signed by his hero Orson Welles, but someone had washed it and the signature was all but gone.

"This is a 50 cent fish bowl.  It's cheap.  It was from about 1940s.  Yesterday it wasn't a 50 cent fish bowl," he explained on radio.

"I was the winner of an auction.  You know I'm buying American collectibles and things like that and I was in a ‑‑ I was in an auction for several things.  One of them was the original typewriter that Orson Welles used to type Citizen Kane. Lost that one.  Lost that one in a big way.  Big way.  I bailed on that one fast.  But I did get from his estate originally sold in 1992 a fish bowl that had been hand‑painted by Orson Welles and signed by Orson Welles," he explained.

"I won this auction about a month ago. I got it yesterday and I put it on my desk."

"I put it on my desk yesterday thinking, you know, I'll look at it tomorrow.  You know how I feel about Orson Welles.  We named Mercury after ‑‑ my company's named after his company.  So I thought, this is really cool.  I'm glad to have the fish bowl."

"So here's what happened.  We have somebody who cleans our offices who is ‑‑ I can't be pissed at her because here's somebody who wants to go above and beyond.  Here's somebody who wants to do the right thing, somebody who saw a fish bowl that looks like it hadn't been cleaned since 1940. And took it in and washed it. Scrubbed, scrubbed the signature, scrubbed all the little fishies, scrubbed it all."

"Nobody even had a chance to even look at it yesterday.  Oh, those days don't come back.  That opportunity doesn't come back," he said.

While Glenn has collected tons of historical memorabilia, the fishbowl had a special significance because of Glenn's admiration for Orson Welles. From a business and creative standpoint, Welles stands up there with Walt Disney in Glenn's heroes in the arts.

"You know what?  Honestly it was a filthy fish bowl and she took the time, she looked at it and she was like, I've got to clean that.  Now, I don't know, and I don't want to know.  When she was scrubbing Orson Welles' art off of it and she was scrubbing that signature, 'I just can't get that thing that looks like Orrin Walls or something, I can't get that off.'"

"I want to know how it died.  That's what I want to know.  Did it die a quick death?  Did she ‑‑ was she just trying to clean the inside and then when she was drying it all of the artwork came off of the front and she was like, 'Oh, crap?'"

Glenn joked that in addition to the fishbowl, he was worried that the old newspapers on his desk - including some announcing the Emancipation Proclamation - got thrown out in the same cleaning effort.

But at the end of all the jokes - Glenn admitted that he felt bad because this one-of-a-kind piece of history has been lost due to his own incompetence. Rather than locking it up or putting it somewhere safe, Glenn just left it on his desk.

"I feel bad honestly. This is the worst part of it. I feel bad because it cannot be replaced."

"Let this be a lesson to me of not leaving dirty things on my desk. If I have something that's historic (value) I should treat it (as such) - not leave it on my locked office on my desk," Glenn said.

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
