#WerkPerks: 'The Walking Dead' Readies Jeffy for a Zombie Apocalypse

The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Or, in this case, the baseball bat. The folks from The Walking Dead sent mega fan Jeffy his own October surprise, revealed Monday on The Glenn Beck Program.

"He is a huge fan, as we all are, but somehow they're making a big deal out of Jeffy," Glenn said.

While the bat wasn't covered in blood and brains, as Jeffy would have preferred, it has equipped him to survive a zombie attack.

Watch below as Jeffy unpacks "Lucille" with a little help from Glenn and podcast friends Brad Staggs and Jason Buttrill.

Season 7 of The Walking Dead Premieres this weekend on AMC.

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

Jeffy got a box over the weekend.

JEFFY: I did.

GLENN: He is a huge fan of -- as we all are, but somehow, they're making a big deal out of Jeffy.

JEFFY: Hey, Walking Dead contacted me and said, "Hey, we would like to send you a gift. And we would like to send you a gift that even fans can't buy. Just a specific gift for you." At my Twitter feed. @JeffyMRA.

GLENN: Please be a tube of rat poisoning.

JEFFY: And I said, "Well, if you really want to, sure, go ahead, you can send me a gift."

GLENN: Yeah. So they sent him something. Not even a note to us.

JEFFY: Sent me something. Season premiere this coming Sunday on AMC. Now, I -- we've had a lot of guesses on what it could be.

GLENN: I know. I think it's a baseball bat.

JEFFY: I think so too. I think it's Negan's bat, but it's really heavy.

PAT: I mean, that would be cool, if it's Negan's bat.

GLENN: It's really heavy. I think it's in glass case.

JEFFY: It's really heavy.

STU: Oh, Styrofoam.

JEFFY: Get Styrofoam everywhere.

STU: At this.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: Oh.

GLENN: It's a big wood crate inside. So that explains the weight.

STU: Fastened to the cardboard.

JEFFY: Is it? Oh.

GLENN: It's a big wooden case.

(chuckling)

GLENN: Okay. Now you can open it up.

JEFFY: I'll let you open the latch. Go ahead.

PAT: Wow. I don't think it's a baseball --

JEFFY: Yes, it is.

PAT: Is it a baseball -- it is!

STU: Oh!

PAT: It is!

GLENN: Look, it even says -- Jeff, this is Lucille. She is awesome.

PAT: Oh, wow. Look at that. That is pretty cool.

GLENN: Wow.

JEFFY: Come on, baby.

GLENN: That is great.

JEFFY: No blood and brains on it though.

GLENN: You expected it.

JEFFY: I know.

GLENN: You expected it. He thought it would be in lucite with blood and brains on it.

JEFFY: That is really cool.

GLENN: I am definitely using this, man. Look at this, it's all prop because it's all plastic. It's all rubber.

PAT: Yeah, so it can't really hurt anybody. Well, if you hit somebody in the head with this baseball bat --

JEFFY: It's still going to hurt.

PAT: -- it's still going to hurt. Yeah.

GLENN: But it's never been used before, Jeffy, there's no blood on it.

JEFFY: I know. Very disappointing. Very disappointing.

GLENN: So it starts this weekend?

PAT: That's pretty cool.

JEFFY: It starts this weekend. Of course, Brad Staggs and Jason Buttrell are here because they joined me on the podcast that we do each week, talking Walking Dead.

GLENN: I don't know if I can handle this year. Are you with me on this?

JEFFY: Oh, it's going to be good.

PAT: I definitely am. I don't know if I can do it. Because it's going to be painful to watch.

GLENN: Yeah, because he is -- Negan is -- you've read the series.

JEFFY: I'm up on a lot of what's coming up, yeah. I haven't read every comic book, yeah. But I know a little bit of what's coming in the future, yeah.

GLENN: And it's really bad.

JEFFY: They've tried to stay pretty close to the comic book.

GLENN: This makes the Governor look --

JEFFY: Oh, the Governor is grandma.

GLENN: Wow. I don't know if I can take that.

JEFFY: Yeah. Plus, the season premiere, we're going to find out. I mean, somebody will pass on to --

PAT: Somebody is obviously dead.

JEFFY: Somebody is going to die.

PAT: Just got beaten to death with a baseball bat --

GLENN: Pat, I don't know about you, but I think I could take it and promote it for something cooler than the baseball bat. Don't you?

PAT: Oh, yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. I could take it. Promote it --

PAT: I think so.

JEFFY: What do you mean?

GLENN: For something cooler than, you know, Jeffy's baseball bat. I don't care what it is, it just has to be cooler than his.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Really, I don't care what it is. I'll never look at it. I just need to have something cooler than what Jeffy has.

JEFFY: Well, you can try.

GLENN: Walking Dead premieres next Sunday.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."
