‘The kiss of Depp’: Glenn analyzes Johnny Depp’s latest flop

The weekend box office numbers are in, and Johnny Depp’s Transcendence failed to live up to expectations – or its hefty price tag. The film reportedly cost $100 million to produce, and made just $11.5 million over the weekend. Transcendence was trounced by Heaven is for Real, which took in an estimated $21.5 million in its opening weekend and cost just $12 million to make. On radio this morning, Glenn characterized Depp’s recent flops at the box office as “the kiss of Depp” as he tried to make sense of the eccentric actor.

“We were talking about Johnny Depp. And you know what the weird thing is about Johnny Depp? I think he is a Ferris wheel and a slumber party away from being Michael Jackson,” Glenn said. “He's from Kentucky. Have you ever listened to the guy… You're from Kentucky, dude… What happened to the American accent? He doesn't seem to have that anymore. Is it just me?”

To be fair, Depp has lived in France for a number of years, but Glenn questioned whether the actor lives his life in character.

“I have no problem with somebody being a character, somebody who's eccentric,” Glenn said. “But it's like he's lost him. I don't know who he is. He's always playing a character in life… You look at his movies, the closer he gets to being a normal human being, the more he can't pull it off… At one point you were a regular dude. What happened to you?”

Stu ran through some of Depp’s bigger films like the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Alice in Wonderland, which all performed quite well at the box office. But, then again, Depp was playing a very specific character in each of those situations.

Ultimately, Glenn doesn’t think the Owensboro, Kentucky native is a bad actor. He just can’t figure him out.

“Do you know what he's? He's a combination,” Glenn said. “When I said he's a Ferris wheel and a slumber party away from being Michael Jackson – he's not Michael Jackson. He [is] Woody Allen.”

“He might be these people except for the thing that they did that made them horrible,” Stu clarified. “Like Michael Jackson was sleeping with children. That's why people were upset with Michael Jackson. Woody Allen… married his freaking daughter. That's why they don't like Woody Allen. He didn't do any of those things that we know of.”

Glenn got the last word and couldn’t help but add a slightly maniacal twist to the whole discussion.

“Why has he got an English accent and living in France? There's a possibility it's a witness protection program,” Glenn concluded before employing his best attempt at Depp’s accent. “’Only blokes in Kentucky would want to hide me in jail so I'll hide in disguise in my blue glasses, I will.’”

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.
