Tom Hanks Sends Caffeine Boost to White House Press Corps

In pursuit of truth, justice and the American Way, one rather famous citizen has taken on the task of keeping the White House press corps alert and wired.

"Tom Hanks has sent a new expresso machine to the White House press corp," Glenn said Friday on radio.

The extravagant coffee maker also came with a typewritten note.

“Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way,” the note reads. “Especially for the Truth part.”

Hanks' interest in fueling truth is apparently nonpartisan. He's single-handedly kept the White House press corps buzzing for years, giving espresso machines during the Bush, Obama and Trump presidencies.

Glenn pondered his own gift idea during the program on Friday.

"How much are those spines that you see in the chiropractor's office?" Glenn wondered. "I would like to send them a box of spines."

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: We were talking about Tom Hanks and the possibility of Tom Hanks running for president, and we get off the air yesterday, and we find that Tom Hanks has sent a new expresso machine to the White House press corps, and he wrote --

JEFFY: That's really nice of him.

GLENN: Yeah, really nice of him. And he wrote a note saying keep up the good fight for the truth, justice, and the American way. Especially the truth part. Tom Hanks. To me, that's not a move of an actor.

[Laughter]

Maybe it's just me.

STU: I mean, one of the theories about Trump and his success throughout campaign was that here's a guy who's been in everybody's living room once a week being in control of every business situation and making every correct decision. And people watch the apprentice, and they, you know, believe he was that guy. If that's true, and that is part of the reason Trump won, imagine what it would be for Tom Hanks. The guy's just been rescue people, surviving amazing things, being the good guy in every situation. We were talking yesterday I think on Pat and Stu about the idea of what roles has he been in where he was the bad guy? And you're, like -- you run through them, and it's, like, someone brought a road to predation.

GLENN: But nobody saw it.

STU: Yeah. But that's it. He's a good guy.

GLENN: He's gone to space. He saved everybody on Apollo 13.

STU: Sully. He was sully.

GLENN: Yeah, this guy, if he decided to run, he could make a big dent. But he's got to weigh, as we talked about yesterday, he's got to weigh you go, you run, you lose, you're no longer that guy.

STU: No, it's over.

GLENN: It's over. You are now the political guy and nobody will ever see you as anything else. So it's the end of his career or the beginning of a new career for him, should he decide to do that. But I thought the expresso machine, I thought we should bring that up. I thought that was really interesting.

STU: Interesting move. You're an actor and sending it to the White House press corps?

JEFFY: Just being nice.

STU: Just being nice. They like expresso?

GLENN: I agree with him. They should keep up the fight for the truth. I wish they would have sent the expresso machine eight years ago. It would have been nice eight years ago. But apparently not. Apparently now is the time the truth matters.

[break]

GLENN: How much are those spines that you see in, like, chiropractor's office? Tom Hanks sent a expresso machine to the White House press corps. I would like to send them a box of spines.

STU: Yeah, and people are noting that he has sent them in the past. First in the Bush administration, and then Obama.

GLENN: He did do it in Obama?

STU: Yeah, in 2010. I guess when the last one break's he sends a new one. So it's cool. Not a partisan situation, apparently.

GLENN: How does he even know that the coffee machine breaks?

STU: He's Tom Hanks. He knows everything.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, he did know how to fix Apollo 13.

STU: That's true. He's an actor. He's not even an actor in real life. But he still was able to fix Apollo 13.

GLENN: He still was able to fix Apollo 13.

STU: People don't know that.

JEFFY: He went on a raft in the middle of the ocean.

GLENN: I felt so bad when he lost Wilson, but he apparently has recovered and buying expresso machines.

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
