What’s Glenn think about that new Star Wars trailer?

On radio this morning, the guys started talking about the new Star Wars trailer. While Pat and Stu found the trailer to be weak, Glenn enjoyed it, saying "I like the lightsaber."

While for the most part, the trailer is getting a very positive reaction online, there is a core group of incredibly ridiculous nerds who have a different opinion. Stu took the opportunity to read some of the negative comments from the fans. The logic behind some of these comments could even put Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory to shame.

STU: Here's some of the comments about the sword. So Steven Colbert said it's awesome. Then comments like this: There shouldn't be metal on the top of the cross guard. There should be metal on the bottom. Why create potential shrapnel, a blow would vaporize some of the cover, but probably not all of it. Some of it would fly off. Colbert is great, but his reasoning is specious.

PAT: That's a —

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: That's a person who has never kissed a girl.

STU: Not even close.

GLENN: Not willingly, but probably on both sides.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I imagine we'll discover the practicality of this design in the movie. If not, I imagine the good folks at ILM are scrambling to turn out a scene.

PAT: Oh, yeah. That's definitely at the top of their list.


PAT: That's unbelievable.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. That's what they're doing right now. Oh, my gosh, we got the lightsaber wrong. Somebody come up with a scene so we can explain this.


Oh, man. This is — we want to talk about first world problems.

STU: Someone tries to come in here and get really upset.

He's like: Come on, guys, what are you complaining about? He says: I love how nitpicking how people who can deflect blaster fire, traveling at the speed of sound, wouldn't be able to wield this new sword without cutting their hand. Really?

And the comments back to him are: Blaster bolts do not travel at the speed of light. Presuming blaster bolts are composed of plasma, super-heated ionized gas —

PAT: You have to be kidding me.

STU: — contained perhaps within a magnetic field, and they are not comprised of the very things in the universe that do travel at the speed of light, namely massless particles, e.g., photons and electromagnetic radiation, of which light is actually a type.

GLENN: [laughter]

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: It was on the tip of my tongue. I was just going to say that.

GLENN: This is geek central.

STU: This is great. That being said, we can only assume, the speed of a blaster bolt is comparable to that of real-world projectiles. So somewhere in the range of just below the speed of sound to about three times the speed of sound. Now that's still too fast for the human eye to track, meaning the blaster bolts we see in the film are slowed for visual effect. Even with a force guiding a Jedi's action —

GLENN: Wait. Wait. Wait. Say that last line, Mr. Scientist.

STU: Even with a force guiding a Jedi's action, blocking a blaster bolt is an incredible feat.

GLENN: [Laughter]

JEFFY: That's tremendous.

PAT: Pretty solid. Yes, and he's right. Even with the force, it's an incredible feat.

JEFFY: Can't argue with it.

PAT: And yet we can't argue it didn't happen because we've all seen it happening. So with the force, you can do it. You can block a blaster bolt fire thing.

GLENN: You know, I remember The Empire Strikes Back. That was the second one. Right?

Or, I'm sorry the fifth one.

STU: Yes, correct. The best one.

GLENN: I was in Washington, DC. I was working at WPGC at the time. And we had the premiere. It was the first time that I was ever afraid of an audience. Because I went to the premiere, and everyone was dressed up as their favorite Star Wars character.

STU: That's only the second one? That's pretty amazing. I didn't know that happened that fast.

GLENN: No. It was a big deal. Remember when Empire Strikes Back that was a huge huge deal. I remember going to the theater. I had to speak to everybody. I'm like, okay, hello, all of you Wookies. Good to see you all here.

STU: What did they sound like? (sound effect).

GLENN: [laughter]

JEFFY: Is he drunk. We're not all Wookies.

STU: By the way, he was drunk, by the way. You're correct.

PAT: You probably were.

STU: Glenn was drunk.

GLENN: No. I was only 18 — but, yes, I say probably was drunk. I'm sorry, ma'am. You're not dressed as a Wookie. Lovely hairstyle.

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.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
