Nolan Ryan: The latest celebrity Glenn had no reason to meet

Glenn has a long history of meeting celebrities that he has no business getting to meet. Not long ago, he got to meet Albert Pujols while visiting St. Louis and at the time he had no idea who the baseball star was until Pat was nice enough to fill him in. Then he met Bono backstage at a preview of Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark, pretty much infuriating Stu who had been a U2 fan for years. And then there was the time he went to a NASCAR event and met Fergie and Michael Bay. And what do all of these people have in common? Glenn had pretty much no reason to meet these people while legitimate fans would have been way more impressed and excited. Well, we can now add one more name to the list: baseball legend Nolan Ryan!

That's right, yesterday Nolan Ryan was at the Texas studio complex and, conveniently after Pat had to run out for an appointment, Glenn and Stu got to meet him. Glenn, of course, showed off his astonishing lack of baseball knowledge leading to this awkward exchange:

STU: ... Glenn awkwardly had to stand there and try to act as if he knew what Nolan Ryan was talking about when he was talking, like inside detailed Texas Rangers baseball.

GLENN: I never confirmed or denied I had any knowledge of what he was talking about.

STU: (Laughing.)

PAT: Now, what ‑‑ because Glenn said, "So how are things?" And he thought he was talking about things generally like in the country, right? But then he said ‑‑

GLENN: Well, he said ‑‑

STU: Like "how are you?"

PAT: But Ryan, Ryan started talking about things inside the organization, Texas Rangers.

STU: Yeah, like the latest moves they've made.

GLENN: No, no. First he said ‑‑ because I said, "So how are things going?" And he said, "I've been really concerned lately." I'm like, "Me, too." And he said, "Been really concerned. You know, some things have been really, you know, really tough and I've really been concerned in the direction that we've been headed." And I'm like, "Me, too." And he said, "But I think our pitching's coming back online," and he starts going in on ‑‑

PAT: And then you were lost.

GLENN: He was speaking Greek to me. And I stood there and it was so awkward because I stood there for a while and I'm like, "Yep. Yep. Yep." And I didn't even what to even ‑‑ how do you follow it up? I'm like, absolutely nothing in common here. And stood there for a while awkwardly and then he said, "I have to ask you something. That polar bear on your set." I said, yeah? And he said, "Why do you have that?" I said, "No."

STU: You said no to him?

GLENN: I said ‑‑ that's how I ‑‑

STU: Oh, his name. I forgot.

GLENN: He said usually my friends call me "Mr. Ryan." And I said, no, listen. I said, I don't know your politics at all but you are from Texas. So I'm just going to come out and say it. I got the polar bear mainly to piss off Al Gore. And he just smiled and he said, "Not only am I from Texas, I was born in Texas and I love that answer."

If only a dislike for Al Gore could lead to more common ground...

Anyway, Glenn was lucky to have Stu by his side to keep the conversation going.

"I was like the TARP of the conversation, constant bailouts," Stu joked.

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
