On radio this morning, Glenn poignantly reflected on the transformation he has experienced and he asked the audience to consider the same.

Tonight at 5 o'clock is the five year anniversary of the 9/12 Project. I invite you to join us. We have asked for people to tell us: How has your life changed. Have you gotten married because of the 9/12 Project? Are there any kids that have come from the 9/12 Project? How are you a different person than you were? And I really want you to ask yourself that question: How have you changed in the last five years?

If you haven't changed, maybe you should look into that. Because I mean, really? All of these things in the world have been going on and you're still the same person? I will tell you that many of the people who voted for Barack Obama would say, ‘I'm the same person.’ The people who are going to lead the world in the next phase, are the ones who have dug down deep right now.

So how have you changed in the last five years? The TEA Party, I know has changed a lot of people and changed a lot of people politically. You've become more active but that wasn't really the main focus of the 9/12 Project. It was happenstance that the TEA Party went to Washington for the very first march on 9/12. That was the date that I issued five years ago next week. Five years ago next week, I said, ‘We're gonna meet again on 9/12. And I'm gonna tell you what I'm doing. And I want to see what you're doing.’

You showed me what you were doing. You went to Washington, D.C. That's what you were doing. I told you then we were going to Washington, D.C. for Restoring Honor because that's what I was doing. I was working on the 40 Days and 40 Nights Challenge. I was working on: Let's be Americans. You went and said, ‘I want my country back. I don't want to slide into socialism.’ You became politically active. You knew who you were. You started teaching your children. And the 9/12 Project was a big part of that.

But also the 9/12 Project was about more than just parties. It was about much more than, at least to me. It was about values and principles. What are those values and principles? Tonight, we are going to go over those again. And I'm going to do something else… At 8 o'clock tonight, I invite you and your family to gather around the TV and watch our first Blaze movie. We have never played a movie on the Blaze before. Tonight we're going to. Tonight, we're going to play an old Frank Capra movie. Frank Capra is the guy who did It's a Wonderful Life. If you liked It's a Wonderful Life you're going to love Meet John Doe.

[…]

This is such an amazing story, and a lost Frank Capra film that you need to see. Maybe you have already seen it. Watch it again. And I want you to watch it with new eyes tonight. I want you to watch this movie and realize where you were five years ago. You were at the beginning of this five years ago.

[…]

I want you to watch it not just as a history lesson, not just as a good movie, but I also really want you to watch the last scene because I'm going on vacation this next week. When I come back, we're gonna tell you about something. You know the phrase ‘let sleeping dogs lie’? They didn't. They didn't let a sleeping dog lie. They kicked the sleeping dog over and over and over again. Beware of dog. The dog is awake. The dog is on guard. And if we have each other, if we really understand the principles behind Meet John Doe, politics go into its rightful place. Politics is only a reflection. Done right, politics is only a reflection of the people.

What does that mean? That's why the 9/12 Project was about values and principles… We knew that somebody had to stand guard and say, this is the truth – for the record. Let history mark for the record this is what happened. We knew that TheBlaze had to exist because nobody was giving you the truth. I've seen the boardrooms from inside. I've seen the news and how it's made from all sides. And I knew there had to be someone.

Please, please watch this movie tonight. You will understand so much of what I have been cryptically saying to you for a long time. You will understand so much. I knew we had to start TheBlaze to tell the truth, but there is another component. It's not just the news. It's not just a political movement. It is cultural.

And so when I come back from vacation, after you have watched this movie tonight, I'm coming back with a new challenge to you. And you will understand in the next 6 months where we're going and what we're doing. Where I'm going, what I'm doing, I will make the same challenge to you. Except it won't be a 6-month challenge. This time it will be in one year. I will show you exactly where I'm going. You will know it. You show me what you've done. We win in the end.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
