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.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
