Glenn makes Jay Leno an offer he can’t refuse

Jay Leno and NBC are back in the headlines because it appears as though Leno is being forced out of his Tonight Show gig in favor of the younger Jimmy Fallon. Considering NBC’s ongoing ratings woes, it does not seem all that rational to oust the number one rated late night host but, then again, very few things at NBC are logical.

“Well, looks like Jay Leno, Jay Leno may be leaving NBC and not by his choice,” Glenn said to open the radio show this morning. “By the way, I'm going to make a major announcement here regarding Jay Leno in just a second, but I really like Jay Leno.”

As it turns out, Glenn had the opportunity to meet Leno a few years back, and he was taken with his genuine personality. “He's an American,” Glenn said. “I think he could sit down with just about anybody and have a decent conversation. And that's what we have to get back to. That's what's wrong with us. And he knows it.”

Perhaps that is why Glenn felt the need to offer Leno a staggering $50 million (!) to join TheBlaze team. “I just really, really like him,” Glenn said, “and that's why I'm going to make the announcement that I am offering Jay Leno $50 million to come and do his…”

“No, you're not,” Stu interjected.

“You're offering him $50 million of whose money,” Pat asked. “I mean, how are we paying for this?”

“Guys, you know I don't have to actually pay for stuff anymore,” Glenn quipped. “You just rack up the debt and then you say you have full faith and credit and then you're just like, what?”

In light of Federal Reserve chairman, Ben Bernanke’s, admission that we are printing $85 million a month or about $1 trillion a year, Glenn asked a very realistic question: “So how does that end?”

“Be honest. It ends with the guys who made those promises shooting the people who they promised it to in the head,” Glenn said. “So Leno comes on, he does a few years… We'll make a deal. We'll make it $75 million. We'll make it $100 million. Pay him 100 million but one lump sum at the very end and then we're not good for it and he when says, ‘Wait a minute, you've got to pay,’ poof.”

“Are you threatening to kill him,” Pat joked. “Are you threatening to kill Jay Leno at the end of his contract?”

“A bullet in the head at the end of the contract, that's the way the world is going,” Glenn responded. “Why not?”

All kidding aside, between the way the situation in Cyprus is being handled and the Federal Reserve’s penchant for endlessly printing money, Glenn’s assessment might be a little grim, but it is certainly in the realm of possibility.

On a lighter note, given Leno’s undeniable success over the years – 18 or 19 years at number one in the time slot – NBC’s handling of this situation is equally suspect. “You know, what is it with NBC seriously,” Glenn asked. “I mean, look at how the way they used to treat people like Carson. They used to treat Carson with respect. It was somebody like, number one for, you know for 40 years and it was great. Here comes Jay Leno, he's done it now, number one for 18 years and they are like, ‘Yeah, I don't like that joke last night.’”

“Can we not just treat him with a little bit of respect,” Glenn continued. “NBC, you're despicable. You're really despicable. And I know because your network keeps saying how despicable I am. So I must be the authority on despicable. I know despicable apparently when I see it.”

Stu did have one possible explanation for why they are trying to marginalize Leno. “Is it possible, though, that NBC is just promoting Jay Leno to weekends,” Stu joked.

Much like his MSNBC colleague, Ed Shultz, who was recently demoted… make that ‘promoted’… to a weekend timeslot, NBC executives could see taking Leno out of late night as a similar step up.

“I never thought of that,” Glenn said. “It could be.”

“Like they were going to put him on and give him a show like 2:00 to 4:00AM on Saturday and Sunday night,” Stu concluded. “That could be their target here because that's how NBC does it for promotions.”

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.
