Glenn’s chilling White House conversation

Much to his critic's surprise, Glenn was not afraid to speak out against the policies of George W. Bush during his presidency. Glenn was invited to the White House during in time at CNN to discuss some of the topics on which he was very critical of the Republican president.

One of these topics was the Middle East.

"He told me things that were going on in the military, and he told me why he was not saying those things. It was because of a promise that he had made to the Pentagon — that he would do it their way because they didn't want to make the soldiers into monsters. And he said if we really release all the information, that's exactly what the left will do," Glenn explained.

"I understood that," he added.

It was when President Bush started talking about what the next president would do that he was alarmed. The day Glenn was speaking to President Bush was the same day that Barack Obama made the claim that, if elected, he would just bomb Pakistan. President Bush told Glenn that no matter who was elected the policies would basically remain the same.

"George Bush said to me — he was standing in the Oval Office and he pointed to the Resolute desk — 'Any man who sits behind that desk, anybody, doesn't matter who it is, Hillary Clinton or anybody, when they sit behind that desk, they'll realize they have very few options.  Their hands are tied. Don't worry. Whoever sits in that chair will execute things pretty much the same way I have.'  And he smiled like, see?  We're all good. And I thought to myself, no, that's not good. That's really not good," Glenn recalled.

"First of all, I don't want it executed this way," he continued. "Second of all, who's tying the hands of the president? Who is tying the hands?"

After the news broke about how the NSA has been collecting private information from millions of American citizens, Glenn's conversation with George W. Bush was highlighted in his mind.

"I was thinking about what I wanted to tell you this morning on the NSA whistleblowers," Glenn said to his radio audience. "This is a story  we've been on for a long time. We've told you all these things, but we were called 'conspiracy theorists' by the mainstream media. And we had very brave whistleblowers come out and talk about this. And we've tried to report it in a responsible way. But that conversation came to my mind because off the air with some of these whistleblowers they have told me it will never be dismantled, Glenn."

They told Glenn that because of both the Republicans and the Democrats, it will never be dismantled. Both parties are doing it.

"Who is George Washington, and will stand up and say, 'I'm going to give up all of that power. I'm going to shut it down.' Who will do that?" Glenn asked. "And who will he got to support him? Because the NSA and everybody else has all of the information on all of them. You really think they're going to be able to shut it down? Anybody who tries will be destroyed. The whistleblowers we have talked to had guns pointed at their heads by our FBI for trying to tell you the truth."

"Thank goodness people are starting to listen."

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
