Beck, Spitzer discuss the issues at DISH's "War of the Words"

On Tuesday night, Glenn flew to Denver, CO to take part in DISH Network’s “War of the Words”, which saw him face off against prominent progressive and Current TV’s Eliot Spitzer. For over an hour, the two spoke out on the issues important to them and the country, covering everything from the economy, the role of government, the media, and healthcare.

Broadcast on DISH and Facebook, the event took place at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver and was moderated by Ed Sardella.

In his opening statements, Glenn took time to thank DISH CEO Joe Clayton for bringing him to Denver before addressing the theme of the night’s event – “The War of the Words”. While that theme implied and even celebrated the inherent conflict between the two opposing political viewpoints, Glenn said it was important for people to stop arguing and start working together.

“I don’t believe in a war of the words,” Glenn said. “We listen to people argue with each other and it tears up apart. If I knew what I knew now ten years ago, I wouldn’t have said the things in the past the way I said them.”

“It’s important for us to listen to each other,” he argued.

Glenn also thanked DISH for putting TheBlaze in millions of homes across the country, noting that they took a chance on a network with a new attitude and outlook that was unlike anything in the mainstream media. He also touted his network’s autonomy, as it is funded by viewers and subscribers leaving him beholden to no one at the end of the day other than God.

In his opening comments, Governor Spitzer of Current TV claimed that America was in good shape and that President Obama was steering the country in an improved direction.

“I believe that we as a nation are stronger than ever,” Spitzer told the audience.

As the event got underway, Spitzer took a page from Glenn’s playbook by using several charts and visual aids to help demonstrate his point. Having left his chalkboard back in Dallas, Glenn at one point used a sharpie to draw a chart on his hand to illustrate his argument against Obamacare. Using the chart, Glenn explained the “Complete Lives System” and rationed care which would emerge as a result of socialized healthcare, and pointed out several recent examples in the news where medicine and treatment was being rationed as a result of government interference.

The philosophical divide between the two became clear when Sardella asked the hosts about their views on the role of government. Spitzer defended Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comments and called for a government that “enforces the rules”. He blamed the Bush administration for the recession that has plagued America since 2008, and said the burden was on big government to police businesses in orde to prevent another recession.

“That was nuts,” Glenn said after hearing Spitzer’s comments.

“Capitalism is great unless you unhook from morals and principles,” Glenn countered.

Glenn put the blame for the economic woes where they belonged – on the people in Washington and on Main Street who unplugged and made the bad choices that led to the collapse in the housing market. He said people have to take responsibility for bad loans, and the government has to take responsibility for enabling those choices.

“We unhooked from reality,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that America needs to redefine the word success and that success needs to tethered to principles. He also said that Americans need to be allowed to fail, and that it was only through his failure over a decade ago was he able to get the strength he needed to build a successful company and launch his own network.

“That happened through hard work and principles,” he said.

To close out the discussion, Spitzer once again reiterated a point that he had made through out the event: America was better off than it was four years ago because of Barack Obama’s leadership. Spitzer said he expected Obama to have a “huge victory” in the weeks ahead.

For his closing remarks, Glenn said that he simply was hoping that someone, either candidate, would speak the plain truth about what is going on in the world. He noted in particular that America’s leaders needed to acknowledge the true chaotic state of the Middle East and the failure of the Arab Spring.

But rather than say a politician would be the one to lead America over the coming years, Glenn said Americans needed to wake up and take responsibility for their own destinies.

“Stand up for what you believe in, you might end up being wrong. I might end up being one of those most incorrect men ever. Whatever. I stand up for what I believe in.”

“The engine of America is you,” Glenn concluded.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
