The Strange Things Glenn Said Under 'Truth Serum'

Glenn recently took a trip to the back doctor. After taking Propofol, he started talking very "honestly" to the nurse and his wife.

"I had this procedure done at like 1:30 in the afternoon. Five o'clock, my wife comes into the bedroom. She said, Well, weren't we a little talkative? You had a few things that were interesting to hear," Glenn recalled.

What exactly did he say? Read below or watch the clip to learn more about his bizarre experience.

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

GLENN: So I go to this doctor -- Pat and I go to the same back doctor. And he's -- he's unbelievable with backs. Dr. Vera in Texas here. And he's unbelievable. Really competent. The only guy that I would ever trust sticking, you know, a needle into my spine.

And I go in. Whenever I throw my back out, once a year, once every year and a half, I'll have to go in and get a steroid injection.

JEFFY: Yeah, you know, after you move in a chair. You don't want to do that.

GLENN: Shut up. Shut up.

PAT: You weren't careful enough. And we were all worried, "Is he going to move in that chair? Because he is sitting there, but will he move?" And you did.

JEFFY: It looked like it. And you did.

PAT: And we were all, my gosh, he shouldn't have moved. He should not have moved.

GLENN: It couldn't get worse -- the last time this happened to me, I picked up a pencil. Remember?

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Oh, that's right. Oh, that's right.

GLENN: I picked up a pencil, and I threw my back out.

JEFFY: That's right. We thought you were healthier now.

GLENN: This time I just moved in my chair.

PAT: He moved, and it was over.

GLENN: Yeah, the muscle tone on me is nonexistent.

(laughter)

But, anyway, so -- oh, my gosh.

So we go in, and they give you -- what is it called? Propofol? How do you say that?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: It's the stuff that killed Michael Jackson, right?

JEFFY: Yes.

PAT: Oh, yes.

GLENN: And it's -- it's truth serum.

JEFFY: Ooh, wait. What?

GLENN: Yeah, it's truth serum.

PAT: Yeah, this is nothing you want to get anywhere near.

GLENN: Yeah, Jeffy, you got to stay away from this stuff.

JEFFY: No. No.

GLENN: So I have said to my wife, I don't know how many times -- every time I go under, "I got to bring my phone because I got to hear what I'm saying to them. You know, what am I saying to the doctor? What are they saying about me?" You know, they could get you to say anything. Okay?

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: And they're like, "No, no. It doesn't happen."

JEFFY: I should probably take you next time just to make sure you're safe.

GLENN: Yeah, no.

So I go in, and I -- and once -- they roll you onto a table in this room that's about 4 degrees. And they strip you down, and they stick your butt up in the air. And then they say, "Count backwards," and you're out. Okay. And -- oh, I forgot. They put wash all over your back to sterilize your back. And then when you're out, then the doctor comes in, jabs a needle in your spine, and calls it a day

PAT: First they make sure that wash is about 38 degrees below zero, when they put it on. They chill it nicely before they put it on.

GLENN: I asked them nicely if they could put it in the freezer to get it a little colder.

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: So far, you're close to a lot of my sites.

(laughter)

GLENN: Okay. So -- so I come back in apparently -- this is according to my wife. And we get home. And you're not supposed to sign anything. You're not supposed to make any major transactions. Any decisions. Sign any contracts or anything for like four or five hours after. And they recommend you just go home and try to get some sleep.

And so -- I had this procedure done at like 1:30 in the afternoon. 5 o'clock, my wife comes into the bedroom. She said, "So you awake?" And I said, "Yeah."

Well, weren't we a little talkative?

JEFFY: Oh, boy.

GLENN: And I'm like, what?

And she said truth serum. You had a few things that were interesting to hear.

And I said, "Oh, dear God, what did I say?"

She said, I'm rolling back into the room, and I apparently look directly at the nurse and said, "I am so full of gas, I was holding it so I wouldn't fart in the doctor's face."

(laughter)

And she said, "It's okay. That happens a lot."

PAT: Oh, man.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Then I turn and I look at my wife, and out of the blue, I apparently say, "I hate the little Christmas Italian tchotchkes you've got all over the house, especially the ones in the kitchen." And then I'm out. I don't say anything.

PAT: And does she actually have those in the kitchen?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. And I do hate them, but I've never told her I hated those. I had no reason to tell her I hated those. I had about an hour of backpedaling.

PAT: That is weird. That is weird.

JEFFY: There's no backpedaling after that.

GLENN: She said, "You were passionate about it." She said, you said, I'm sorry that I -- or, I'm so full of gas. I didn't want to fart in the doctor's face.

And, you, I hate those Italian tchotchkes you've got in the house.

JEFFY: That's never ever going to go away. You know that now. Never going to go away.

GLENN: No.

JEFFY: Every year: "I'll just put these over here, the ones you hate. These will just be right over here." Never.

GLENN: That's exactly right.

JEFFY: That's always there.

GLENN: Can you imagine.

PAT: And, by the way, I've been cheating on you for a year and a half.

GLENN: Can you imagine if you really had something bad?

PAT: Wow. That could be it.

JEFFY: Yes, I can. I can imagine.

PAT: Yes, you can.

JEFFY: I can imagine.

GLENN: Jeffy can't walk. Why don't you get that spinal thing?

JEFFY: No, no. I'm fine.

JEFFY: We're good. I'm fine. It's good to go right here, Doc.

GLENN: She was not happy with me. She was not happy.

PAT: Oh, man.

Seriously, you'll never hear the end of it. Every year.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

And I'm the laughingstock. Now going back to the doctor, and I'm the guy who was, you know, worried about farting in his face.

Now, they apparently had a conversation, and they were laughing about it. Her -- my wife and the doctor.

JEFFY: It does always happen.

PAT: It's got to happen a lot.

GLENN: Always happens.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Can you imagine how horrible of a --

JEFFY: It's embarrassing.

GLENN: What a -- I don't want a job where somebody is always farting in my face. That's not a job I want.

PAT: Or ever.

GLENN: Or ever. Ever.

PAT: I don't want a job where it ever happens, let alone always.

GLENN: I want a job where that never happens.

PAT: Right. Like here. Hopefully there's no reason --

GLENN: It will never happen. I've spent 45 years, or 40 years in this industry, never has that happened.

PAT: No.

GLENN: He might make more money or have a sweet job or whatever it is. But he all the time has people farting in his face.

PAT: Not good.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Not worth it. I don't care how long you went to medical school. I don't care what the payoff is now. How many millions of dollars a year you make, not worth it. No. No.

(laughter)

GLENN: I asked --

PAT: I'll take my high school education and sit right here.

GLENN: Once you have --

JEFFY: We see those, which are getting a little old, but we still see them. The mothers and fathers recording their kids after the dental work, and they tell them something bad. And they cry.

GLENN: Oh, I think that's horrible. It's horrible.

JEFFY: Everybody laughs. Ha, ha, ha.

GLENN: No, that's horrible.

JEFFY: I know, but Tania should do that with you. It's horrible with the kids, but you --

GLENN: Yeah, it's horrible with the kids. No, I think that would be fine.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
