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.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:
