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.

Check out a photo from the meeting below:

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.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
