So Pat went to jail.

When you tune into The Glenn Beck Radio Program, we really hope that you learn something. Politics, science, faith, history - at his core Glenn is a storyteller and a teacher. So what did we learn today? Well, Pat went to jail.

Yes, you read that right.

Let's be honest, if you were to guess which person from the show had done time, you would guess Jeffy. Then if you found out you were wrong, you'd guess Jeffy again and tell me stop messing around. The it's a toss up between Glenn in his drinking days and Stu after local Texas bistro that's run out of veggie burgers.

Never Pat. Never, ever Pat.

But it turns out Pat once lived on the wrong side of the tracks, getting busted for (wait for it)...a parking ticket!

Say it ain't so Pat!

Stu: How many times have you been in prison, Jeffy? Can we start with that?

JEFFY: For what particular crime?

PAT: No, we're just talking in general. Overall. Total number. Jail, prison, combined.

JEFFY: Jail and prison are two different things. Anybody can say jail --

GLENN: Yeah, we've all sat in jail. Right, Jeffy? We've all gone to jail.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: I actually have. I actually have sat in --

JEFFY: Okay. This is news to us today.

GLENN: This is the second time you've said this, and we've been friends since the '80s, and you've never told me about your jail time.

PAT: Have I not? Really?

GLENN: No, you have not. You're saying this like you've never gone to jail.

PAT: No, I have. I spent a night in jail, in the Salt Lake County jail.

GLENN: I killed a man in Reno just to watch him die.

PAT: It was actually Rexburg, a family of six.

GLENN: Right. Wow. Why were you in jail?

PAT: It was a parking ticket that was unpaid.

GLENN: Okay. What kind of Nazi town was that?

PAT: I know. I know. Right?

They -- I didn't appear when I was supposed to, and then --

JEFFY: So there was a warrant.

PAT: There was a warrant.

GLENN: How old were you?

PAT: Twenty-one, probably. Just married.

GLENN: Did that scare the life out of you?

PAT: Not super responsible apparently at the time.

GLENN: What a surprise that it was some sort of a -- a vehicle violation that Pat spent time in jail over.

PAT: Yeah, it's a shocking surprise.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: So I -- you know, wasn't paying much attention to it so I thought, yeah, I'll get around to that. I didn't get around to that. Then there was a bench warrant or whatever. And then I appeared. And the judge was really nasty. And he wasn't going to let it go with a fine. In fact, he gave me a 30-day sentence and suspended 29. I could have spent 30 days in jail for a parking ticket.

JEFFY: First of all, that's just how the man will do you right there. I mean, we've all been in front of judges like that.

PAT: Yeah. So on Mother's Day in like 1981, I'm in jail. And Jackie is home alone.

STU: Mother's Day.


PAT: Home alone without her husband.

STU: Did she -- did you guys have kids?

PAT: She was pregnant at the time. She was pregnant with our first --

STU: Oh.

JEFFY: So she wasn't a mother yet.

GLENN: Boy, she was regretting --

PAT: Oh, yeah, she was like --

GLENN: She's like, is there any way this child is not Pat's?

PAT: Can this be annulled at this point, even though we've conjugated.

GLENN: There's got to be some way this is not Pat's.

STU: I believe on this program, she was very much was a mother at that particular time.

PAT: That's right. Thank you. So I will say to you -- so you're in jail on your wife's first Mother's Day.

PAT: With these assaults. You know, perpetrators. With burglars.

GLENN: What was that like?

PAT: So what are you in for? I killed a man in Rexburg, just to watch him die. No, a parking ticket. They all laughed. But...

JEFFY: Make some friends? Lifelong?

PAT: Fortunately I did not get together with any of them that night.

GLENN: You didn't find any love spots?

PAT: No.

JEFFY: I mean, you're already there.

GLENN: You have a pretty mouth. How frightened were you?

PAT: I was terrified.

GLENN: Did you sleep?

PAT: No. And it was probably pretty -- it was -- twenty-four hours. It was overnight.

GLENN: Like, I got there at 7:00 and the sun came up.

PAT: I can't remember what time I got there. Maybe 6 o'clock in the afternoon. Then I had to spend the night. Then I think Jackie could pick me up at 9 o'clock the next morning or something.

GLENN: Did you get a chance to take the cup and ring it across the bars? I've always wanted to do that from the other side of the bars.

STU: So that means Glenn, you're signifying you've never been to jail?

GLENN: We're talking about Pat right now.

STU: Wait. You've been to jail too?

GLENN: We're talking to Pat right now. We're talking about Pat and his --

JEFFY: Every jail cell doesn't have a cup, so it could have been possible that you went to jail and didn't have a cup.

GLENN: I'm just saying that we have one revelation here that we have not finished exploring. Let's concentrate on Pat.

PAT: No, I think we've explored it in its entirety.

GLENN: Oh, golly. We're all out of time. We're all out of time.

PAT: Now it's time to shift the exploration. Wow. So there is something you haven't come clean on?

GLENN: There may be some things that I've misremembered.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:

Glenn and Justin’s new book, ‘The Great Reset: Joe Biden And The Rise Of 21st Century Fascism’ is available to order now.
