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.

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.
