Stu and the Story of the Bulletproof Vest

In case you hadn't heard, Glenn threatened to stab co-host Stu Burguiere last Friday. It was a joke, but some folks can't take a joke these days. So, naturally, the Secret Service became involved. That's what happens when you joke about something, right? Well, it is if Trumpsters jump to the wrong conclusion.

"So I walk in, they're in this room, these two Secret Service agents are there. And they're big fans. And they're like, 'Mr. Beck, we're really sorry. We know the story. We know what's going on. We just have to hear it from you.' And they had the audiotape and the videotape there. They had everything."

According to Glenn, the Secret Service detail may be the only ones with a sense of humor. (The world really is upside down.) They evidently said, 'We listen to you. We know you threaten Stu's life all the time.' Now that's funny . . . Secret Service making a dry joke.

Long story short, Glenn did not threaten anyone's life. He and his co-worker friends like to joke around. It's called having fun. Trumpsters should try it sometime.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: And it's suicide.

Are you wearing a bullet-proof vest?

STU: Yes, I am.

GLENN: I'm sorry. I just noticed that Stu is wearing a bullet-proof vest.

JEFFY: Good for him.

STU: I mean, you've talked many times about being prepared. And obviously with the events of this weekend, I think it's sensible for me to take precautions.

GLENN: You're worried about someone coming in here and shooting us?

STU: You're under FBI investigation. Okay?


I think it may have even gone higher than that at this point. Has the United Nations contacted you? I don't know.

GLENN: Interpol. I'm wanted by Interpol.

STU: Interpol.

PAT: It's the Secret Service. It's the FBI. It's the NSA. It's the CIA. It's the NCAA.

GLENN: Wait. Wait. It's not just the CIA, Central Intelligence Agency, it's also the Culinary Institute of America.

PAT: It is.

STU: You're threatening to stab everybody with knives. So the Culinary Institute of America is going to get involved in that.

JEFFY: You don't just get involved in that.

PAT: They're intervening.

GLENN: In case you don't know what happened on Friday, I threatened to stab Stu and just wouldn't stop stabbing him.

STU: You did. Because I made fun of you because you blew an analogy. You said -- you meant to say --

PAT: Walking in the shoes. And instead, he said sitting in his shoes.

STU: And I pointed out that they would have to be very large shoes.

PAT: For you to sit in.

GLENN: Have you seen Marco Rubio in the big chair?

STU: I have. Yes. Apparently a big story this weekend.

JEFFY: That was post stabbing. The Marco Rubio chair was post stabbing.

GLENN: I'm just saying, somewhere with that big chair, there's big shoes that he probably could have sat in as well.

STU: That's probably true. So you -- after I criticized blowing the analogy, you threatened to kill me.


If you were in the same location, you would not stop stabbing is the way that --

GLENN: Okay. Let me tell you what happened. Because this is out of control. And this is Trump. Trump, his campaign manager tweeted this, tweeted that I was under FBI investigation or Secret Service investigation. Absolutely not true. The Secret Service knew this was not true.

PAT: Seems that's a lie being spread by the campaign. Doesn't it? What kind of dirty tricks are they playing? Wow.

GLENN: Yeah, I know. I know. Anything to discredit.

So they knew -- the Secret Service knew from the instant it happened, and here's how I know.

5 o'clock in the afternoon, I finished my TV show at 6 o'clock on Friday. And I finished my show at CPAC. Now, Secret Service is there all day long. And my security guy comes up to me and says, "Glenn, we have to meet with the Secret Service."

And I said, "I thought we already had this conversation." Because the Secret Service called immediately because they were getting so many Trumpsters calling. And they have to --

STU: They should.

GLENN: Yeah, they should.

STU: A lot of media sources were reporting that you had targeted Trump with your stabbing. Of course, we got that corrected -- all the legitimate ones corrected almost --

GLENN: Immediately. Immediately. Not the Daily Caller and not the --

STU: The Daily Caller did add an update. Politico had it initially. The Hill had it. I mean, a lot of places started carrying it, and they did pull it down.

GLENN: Yeah, everybody pulled it down.

GLENN: The Daily Caller, I'm sorry. I'm not giving them any slack. It's ridiculous what the Daily Caller is doing. But, anyway, so the Secret Service, they don't even call me. Did they call you?

STU: No, I was just on Twitter tweeting all the reporters individually. Being like, you guys know -- and I know you don't listen to the show, per se, so you might not understand that Glenn threatens my life every day. But let me tell you that this is actually normal.

GLENN: Right. So, anyway, they knew early on. And I asked about it. I said, "They don't believe that, do they?" And they said, they already talked to the Secret Service. They didn't believe it. Everything is fine.

So 6 o'clock rolls around. And my security guy says, "You got to go meet with the Secret Service." And I said, "You got to be kidding me. This is still going on?" And he said, "No, no. In fact, they're very nervous about meeting with you because there's been an ongoing argument today inside because they know this is ridiculous and they don't want to -- they don't want you to go on the air and hammer how stupid they are."

STU: And they're not stupid. At all.

GLENN: And they're not stupid. But they have -- to be able to close this out, they have to have a statement from you. And I'm like, "I'm not going to hammer them on the air. They should be doing this stuff." If a complaint, they should follow every step of the way.

STU: Absolutely.

GLENN: So I walk in, they're in this room. These two Secret Service agents are there. And they're big fans. And they're like, "Mr. Beck, we're really sorry. We know the story. We know what's going on. We just have to hear it from you." And they had the audiotape and the videotape there. They had everything.

And they said, "You know -- and one of them said, "We listen to you. We know you threaten Stu's life all the time."

STU: Wait a minute.


GLENN: And I believe -- and they said something like, "We don't care if you kill him." I'm not sure. But that's the way I remember it.

STU: Really?

JEFFY: Bless them.

GLENN: Yeah, but they were really, really nice and very professional and exactly the way the Secret Service should behave. And I said, "If you guys listen to me -- first of all, thank you for doing this. Thank you for protecting even people like Donald Trump. I really don't like him, but he has a right to say these things and he should be protected. And so you're exactly right. If you have something -- a lead, you have to follow it and everything else." I know. But if you do listen to me, you know that I've asked multiple times for prayers for you guys and prayers for you guys around Donald Trump to keep him safe because he's a crazy man.

And they didn't respond to the crazy man thing. But they did respond to, "Yes, we do know. And we're very appreciative of all your support and everything else." And I said, "You guys are doing an important job. And you need to continue to do it. And I support you and everyone on our show supports you." They were really, really gracious and very professional. And it was over. It was over that morning.

I leave there, an hour later, I think it's the Daily Caller printing than at that I'm now under federal investigation with the FBI. The FBI hasn't been involved. This was closed an hour after this was brought to their attention. This is ridiculous.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Absolutely ridiculous.

STU: It's completely ridiculous. And you're right. They should go through and go through the motions and make sure nothing is there. It was pretty obvious.

PAT: If you heard this show though, you know there was nothing there.

GLENN: As soon as they heard the show, they knew. And so the only reason why this was a deal was because of Trump people and people like Donald Trump's manager saying that I threatened his life. It's clear to anyone who listened to the show, I was threatening Stu's life.

STU: It was comical to see all of the Trump supporters like cycle through all the arguments as each one gets to feed it. One of their first big arguments was, "Well, if Glenn said that it was -- if it was his co-host there, then why did he say, if I were near him or if I were up there, not knowing that we were in two different locations." You were at CPAC. We were in Dallas. So then the video comes out, shows that we're in two different locations.

Then it's, "Well, he didn't even make a veiled reference to his co-host." It's like, "Well, I spoke the sentence immediately before the thing you're saying." So, no, he didn't make a reference to me. I was actually speaking on the air.

It was a weird Friday. I will say, I spent most of my Friday defending my boss for threatening my life. I was actually -- I was saying, "You know, wait a minute, guys. He wasn't threatening Donald Trump's life. He was only threatening my life." And then think about how weird it is to go through that process. Then the media sources say back to you, "Oh, okay. He wasn't threatening Donald Trump's life. It was only you." Which, like, there's no story here. Your life is in danger. There's no more story. We'll pull that down immediately.


This is the Jeffy way of living.

JEFFY: You're welcome. It is.

STU: Well, that's why I have the bullet-proof vest today. Because, look, I don't know that I can trust you.

GLENN: I know.

STU: You're obviously a very dangerous guy. You're under investigation by multiple authorities.

GLENN: I know. FBI. Culinary Institute of America.

STU: Yes, they're all over you. Pat was saying I guess it's the FBI, the CIA, and the NCAA.

PAT: NCAA is in on it too.

GLENN: WACP, are they in on it?

STU: I don't know.

PAT: Not yet. But they're considering.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
