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."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
