You will never believe who Glenn had dinner with on Friday night

On Friday, Glenn attended a dinner at The Lambs Club in New York City that was hosted by a friend of his, Tribeca Film Festival co-founder, Craig Hatkoff. Craig brought together a fascinating mix of people from all different industries and backgrounds to prove that common ground can be found. On radio this morning, Glenn talked about the experience and shared the uniting themes that emerged from the evening.

On Friday, I was walking to a dinner that a friend of mine put together. He said, ‘Glenn, you just have to meet some of my friends of mine.’ And I think the invite kind of got out of control because by the time the dinner happened, it had one of the head guys of the Clinton Global Initiative there at the table, which was interesting.

Norma Kamali was there. She's a very famous fashion designer, and I love this woman. I think she is one of the most fascinating women I have ever met… She's a wild trendsetter… She is such an out-of-the-box thinker, and I don't even know where she stands politically. I'm afraid to ask… But I think she's a libertarian. She sounds like one. I have no idea… But she is fascinating.

The head of the Tribeca Film Festival [Craig Hatkoff] was there. Kathie Lee Gifford was there. The Clinton Global Initiative guy was there. Betsy [Morgan] from TheBlaze was there. It was an amazing dinner. We had this room at a place called The Lambs Club here in New York… And they have these private rooms. And it's like this old 1930s feel to it. We had a big table in the center and we all sat around. And I had talked to Craig [Hatkoff] who threw this dinner… and I said to him,'I don't want to sit and talk to the person sitting next to me. I want to hear from everybody. So let's make sure that we're all talking to each other and one person has the floor.'

And so he started talking about what was coming and how to solve it. And it was interesting because there were a couple of people from political backgrounds. And I don't want to speak out of turn or throw anybody under the bus because they were all very, very kind and gracious and everything else. But it was quite obvious Einstein was right – those who helped create the problem will never solve the problem. And we were talking about the most uniting things. And it was interesting because the political world people, I don't think really grasped this because… well, they started it.

And at one point, Norma Kamali says, ‘It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what are you talking about. It doesn't matter what are we going to do from here.’ And she gave this eloquent speech on: I am really concerned that people who have a different opinion than yours or mine are going to be shut up… If we don't start saying that this person who I vehemently disagree with has a right to stand up and say it, we're all in trouble. And it was fascinating.

I mean, one of the guys who was sitting at the table said, at one point... ‘It's you religious people and you Christians that have caused all of these problems. Look at the Middle East. Why is the Middle East on fire? Because of religion.’ And so it had this fascinating viewpoint. I just kind of glanced in the corner of my eye to Kathie Lee, and then Kathie Lee took it from there.

It was really interesting to see that the majority of the room understood the peril that we are in. And the majority of the room looked for ways to avoid the peril that we're in. And none of the answers came from Washington. Every single person… was like: Washington is not going to provide the answer. The United Nations is not going to provide the answer. That doesn't work. We all know that. Whether you're left or right now, we all know that doesn't work. How do we empower the individual? I come to you to report: This is great news. This is great news.

[…]

The more we root ourselves in politics, the more trouble we're in. One of the guys said, ‘We can't get anything done in Congress… The President won't talk to Congress and the Congress won't talk to the President.’ And I said, ‘Well, that's a good thing.’ ‘Well, how are we going to ever get anything done? We've never had this kind of rancor before.’ I said, ‘You know what's really amazing is how people eventually find themselves coming together. How all of a sudden these things kind of just work themselves out.’ And then I told the story of Charles Sumner, who was beaten within an inch of his life in the well of the Senate… So don't tell me we haven't had this kind of rancor before. We've had it.

[…]

The question is: This time, do we survive? The other times we have survived because we have had common decency, a common belief in God and good and evil. So we have had that to fall back on. We've had self-regulation that came from having a belief in something more than ourselves or more than in the arm of the flesh. And so that's what we have to strengthen.

I just think that there is something amazing going on… I don't know exactly what it is yet. But it's something very, very good… Look, this is a fledgling television network. It took Fox 10 years before they even popped… It took September 11th to put them on the map… So we're still this fledgling network. Why are the Google guys coming to us? Why are they having this interview with us? I think it's because they know they can have an intelligent conversation. They can have a different conversation. And they also I think are smart enough to see the writing on the wall – what's moving forward, what's happening.

And I think that is part of the good news… You have made such an impact by gathering together and being fans of this show and other shows and other things like this. You're not dismissed anymore. We used to be a bunch of crazies. We're not a bunch of crazies. We are a very powerful force and only getting stronger. And the writing is on the wall for these politicians. I don't think that the Republicans or the Democrats really understand what's coming. They really don't have any clue as to who you are and how you feel. They just don't. And, quite honestly, I like that. I like that.

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
