Mary Matalin joins the show to talk cable news, the GOP...and tortures Stu

Yesterday CNN announced some major changes in their lineup. Among these was a host of names that will no longer appear on the network. Two of the most notable being James Carville, and a personal friend of Glenn's, Mary Matalin. This morning, when Matalin called into the show she had a different focus. The former CNN contributor didn't spend much time discussing her former employer, instead she mostly spent her time on the show torturing Stu.

You see, Stu prides himself on having attending the Super Bowl the last six years in a row, and this year is no different. However this year, instead of hunting down tickets once he arrives, Stu is trying to take advantage of Glenn's friendship with Mary Matalin. What can she do to help? Well, Matalin and her husband are co-chairs of this year's Super Bowl Host Committee.

"Oh, Glenn, I'm great and I've been meaning to call," Mary said as she greeted Glenn over the phone this morning. "You know I listen every day but I haven't been able to listen, I've been so busy.  I'm co‑hosting the Super Bowl here and I've been meaning to call to see if Pat wanted to come to anything."

Ouch. Sorry, Stu.

Pat and Glenn, of course, played right along. Noting that he can't make it, but that Mary should auction off for charity. That was someone with a lot of extra money [i.e. Stu] could bid on it and do some good.

"How about game day tickets or something like that?" Mary joked.

The ideas kept rolling in — none of which were good for Stu.

"How about this:  Pat and Stu come down.  Pat goes to the game and we auction off walk‑ins to the free things with Stu," she said. "How is that?"

After quite a bit more mocking, Glenn got down to business and asked Mary about her departure from CNN. Of all the people they actually kept around, he couldn't believe they would let her go.

"I feel the same way leaving as you did," Mary responded.

"Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I'm free at last?" Glenn joked.

"I'm raising kids. I have to control my schedule," she said. "They [CNN] have built all new studios and they want people there that can get there on a moment's notice. And not only can I not do that, I'm too old in my life to do that. I don't want to follow those kind of stories.  So I'm not ‑‑ I have many friends there, I've had them for a million years, I love John King.  I love Anderson."

Glenn noted his fondness of Cooper and Blitzer from his time at CNN.

"I think they are honorable men. I really do. I like them. They are nice guys," he said.

Glenn transitioned to the state of the GOP, explaining his feelings that the party is basically over.

"I'm done with the GOP.  How do we hold onto our country when the GOP is just ‑‑ they are just folding on absolutely everything and I don't know what they stand for anymore," Glenn said to Mary.

"Let's go to first principle," Mary responded. "Why ‑‑ the first principle for me is the reason I became a conservative, growing up in south Chicago, I didn't know any Republicans." The college I went to, 17,000 kids, there were 11 Republicans. The reason I became a conservative is because those were the days of this wave of, this new wave of 'progressivism feminism'. It was like a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bike. I said, "that's it. I love men, I want men in my life." I didn't want to do that group think thing. I'm going back to first principles here."

Much like Glenn, Mary moved to an area with a stronger community. Where they can fix their educational system and surround themselves with good entrepreneurial people.

"You're exactly ‑‑ Mary, that's exactly where I am.  I don't care about Washington anymore," he told her. "We have to watch them. We have to make sure that we're paying attention. They're out of control. I don't believe in either party right now but I do believe in the American people. I do believe we have to fix our families, fix our street, fix our town."

"Fix our state," he added. "If our states are all rock solid, Washington, Washington needs us more than we need them and we have to put that ‑‑ we have to put that situation back into play."

"When we moved here, I started listening to you every day, and you changed my perspective. You changed my life. You've made me a more committed citizen and every day think of how can I help somebody, what can I do to have an impact," Mary said to Glenn. "And if everybody's in the know knew that there's so many people out there that think like that. Just knowing that there are more of us, as you say, and all the news that you do bring to us -- that's a huge ‑‑ that's a calling.  Nobody else can do it.  Nobody's been determined enough to do it."

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
