GLENN: So what's opening up -- oh, by the way, I saw last night father daughter movie night last night, and we saw a dog's purpose. Did you guys see that? Oh, my gosh is that --

JEFFY: There's all kinds of dog movies.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It's so good.

PAT: What?

JEFFY: There's a bunch of dog movies that came out this past couple of years. I've seen a bunch of them.

GLENN: Yeah, this one is the one with Kevin Costner? Oh, no, not Kevin Costner.

JEFFY: No, I haven't seen that.

PAT: You're pulling our legs.

GLENN: No, I'm not. I'm not.

PAT: A dog's purpose is good?

GLENN: No, all those dog movies, Jeffy.

JEFFY: They're police dog, military dogs.

GLENN: I haven't wanted to see a single one.

JEFFY: I know. But I'm forced to see them.

GLENN: This one is worth seeing.

PAT: Ben goes to the beach, Ben goes to the a cappella.

GLENN: This one is great. It's really great.

PAT: It's on demand now. You watched it like that?

GLENN: Yeah. Cheyenne said to me buy it or rent it? And I rarely say buy it. And Tonya said that she had talked to somebody who was just raving about it.

JEFFY: So just buy it.

GLENN: And I said buy it. Your mom's going to want to see it, thinking, you know, that's going to be a mistake. It's a stupid dog movie. It was fantastic. I loved it.

PAT: Number one movie at the fox office is fate of the furious.

JEFFY: It's going to be knocked off, though.

PAT: By guardians of the galaxy.

GLENN: After it made its billions of dollars. How much has it made worldwide?

PAT: Last week it was something like 200 million.

JEFFY: Yeah, it's in the hundreds of millions already.

GLENN: It's going to make a billion dollars.

JEFFY: That's what they were pontificating, when it would cut the billion-dollar mark. In the first two weeks.

GLENN: Oh, my god.

PAT: It's the first movie that come out in a long time that I wanted to see.

GLENN: Fast and the furious?

PAT: No, guardians.

GLENN: Guardians. I'm telling you, Chris -- what's his name?

PAT: Pratt.

GLENN: Pratt. Is he so great? So good. So likable. And, Chris, even if you are here and you agree with everything I say, I don't want to hear your political opinion. Even if you agree with everything I say, I don't want to know it. He is so great. So great.

JEFFY: Not a lot of us like that left anymore. You know what I'm saying?

GLENN: No, I don't know what you're saying.

Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Big Tech isn't making it easy for organizations outside of the left's coalition to survive. Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer for Parler — the social media platform now throttled by Amazon, Apple, and Google.

I promise: We're on it."

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.
