GLENN: The morning show host at KSEV in Houston, Texas, our affiliate in Houston and my best friend, Pat Gray, welcome to the program, Pat, how are you?

GRAY: I'm good, how are you?

GLENN: Very good.

GRAY: You are on live right now.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

GRAY: Kind of cool.

GLENN: Yeah, we're glad to be on live in Houston and glad to have you on. Pat, tell me about the thought that you have on Barack Obama. Is there any way Barack Obama doesn't win this election?

GRAY: Oh, yeah, I think there's a way he doesn't win.

GLENN: Really? How?

GRAY: Well, we have to get the message out that the guy's a Marxist. I think that's the way he doesn't win. I don't think America

GLENN: Why do you use the old language of division?

GRAY: I know, isn't that horrible? That's just, that's it's insensitive. It's not loving.

GLENN: No.

GRAY: It just happens to be the truth and

GLENN: But it's the politics of division.

GRAY: I know.

GLENN: It's the using of the old labels.

GRAY: I know. It's a label that goes back to, well, I guess Karl Marx, doesn't it.

GLENN: Yes.

GRAY: And Vladimir Lenin when he finally put it into practice. So it is, it is old language but I think it's appropriate to resurrect it right now. With all the talk of collectivism and the common good and rich versus poor, I think it's appropriate. I think it's appropriate.

GLENN: I just had a guy on the phone from Portland. He is part of the morning show here and he is way, way liberal. He defected. Now we have Dan Boren of Oklahoma, the lone Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation. He said that while Barack Obama has talked about working with the Republicans, unfortunately the record does not reflect working in a bipartisan fashion. He said he's the most liberal senator in congress, he has no intention of endorsing him for the White House. He is defecting. He's a Democrat and he's defecting from Barack Obama.

GRAY: Wow.

GLENN: This thing could this thing could implode.

GRAY: Wow, and I hope it does. Because, you know, that's exactly the point, isn't it? He's presented himself as the great uniter. When has he ever reached across the aisle to compromise, to not be quite as leftist as he's been known to be? Whereas, John McCain does it all the time.

GLENN: Yeah.

GRAY: And we see that all the time. And the uniter? No.

GLENN: John McCain is the Democratic nominee. You know what I mean?

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: He's the guy that the Democrats should have nominated. He is to the left but center left. He, you know, likes big government when he likes, you know, what they're doing, where conservatives are supposed to hate big government. Democrats like big government on certain things, and that's John McCain. He's the blue dog Democrat kind of President. He's not a Republican.

GRAY: Not in the least.

GLENN: And yet, but Barack Obama is the socialist party. We have a choice between a Democrat and a Marxist.

GRAY: Yeah, it's a pretty bad choice. Pretty bad choice and yet, like you said, that's the old way, that's the language of division, it's hatred. And we were told by Maureen Dowd in her column today that, you know, we've got some sort of witch hunt or, what was it, kill the witch program going against his blessed wife Michelle right now. You are not supposed to notice she has never been proud of her country in her adult life. You are not supposed to notice her message of force and that Barack Obama's going to require and demand certain things of us. We're not supposed to notice any of that.

GLENN: Yeah, those are her exact words, too.

GRAY: Yes.

GLENN: That he will demand that you are involved.

GRAY: And require. And he will not allow you to go back to your life as you knew it. What? I still want to live in America. I don't want my President to be the czar or the king, to demand, require and not allow me to do certain things?

GLENN: Do you remember, Pat, when Michael Moore we both talked about this. We warned, both of us on the air: Democrats, you don't know what you're getting into bed with, you're in so much trouble. Remember, you and I, you and I were both talking about George Bush and I remember you saying to me, because I said, "Pat, I can't do the George Bush thing anymore." And you said, I am so far off that George Bush bandwagon. And we talked about it and you said, if you are going to say something, you better be careful because a lot of Republicans aren't there yet. And we talked about how do we bring Republicans, how do we say to conservatives, you know, look, you've got to wake up because people were just, they were in that herd mentality. They were in that, "Hey, we've got to stand together as Republicans." And that had to stop. And at the same time we had that conversation, we said the Democrats are being duped as well.

GRAY: Absolutely.

GLENN: And they just haven't woken up.

GRAY: Yeah, and how many rank and file Democrats want Marxist ideological in the White House? They don't.

GLENN: They don't.

GRAY: They just don't understand. They see the hope, the change, they see the charisma, they start chanting his name and passing out in the crowd but they don't listen to what he is really saying.

GLENN: Because he's not saying anything.

GRAY: I know it.

GLENN: His wife is saying it.

GRAY: Well, his wife is saying plenty and then his is your gates like, well, Chucky Schumer was saying yesterday how they want to take these profits and demand and require what to do.

GLENN: So does John McCain!

GRAY: I know.

GLENN: John McCain does, too. I mean, I John McCain didn't fly back to Washington to stop that. He didn't vote. Neither did Barack Obama. These guys are the biggest weasels I've ever seen. This country deserves so much more. How did we end with these two?

GRAY: And where, where are the giblets, where's the spine of any of the Republicans? Fortunately yesterday they had the nerve to stand up and say no to the windfall profit thing. You know, but the demonization of big oil continues and if they are allowed to take these profits and do with it what they choose, either put it into their own coffers or force oil companies to do certain things with them, you are going to see the oil supply dry up. I mean, not only are you not going to pay $4 or $5 a gallon for it, you are not going to have it. And then there's going to be a real problem in this country.

GLENN: I talk to Ben Stein today. You know, Ben Stein is a real optimist and he's a guy who's like, Glenn, we have been through tough times before. He's been trying to talk me out of the insanity tree for quite some time. He said to me today, he said, Glenn, you're not going to have oil. You won't have oil. If, if Barack Obama or John McCain gets in and they start taking apart these profits and taking them away and taxing and penalizing these oil companies, if that happens, you won't have oil. And then all bets are off.

GRAY: And this is on a profit margin of 4 cents a gallon. Yeah, they sell a lot. It's volume, volume, volume. They sell a lot of oil. So they make a lot of money. But it's 4 cents a gallon. The government's making 18 cents a gallon or more?

GLENN: Obscene profit, what about their obscene profit? They haven't done anything for it!

GRAY: Nothing, nothing. And yet big oil is the problem. What about big jewelry? Let's talk about the 3,000% markup of diamonds. When is congress going to go after big jewelry?

GLENN: No, I want to know, because profit margin is 8.5% for the oil companies. The breweries, the profit margin is 10.5 or 10.7%. I want to know when we're going to go after Budweiser, Cindy McCain.

GRAY: Yeah, that's going to happen.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, you bet that will. It helps when you're sleeping with the President, the possible next President of the United States. That's the ultimate insider. Thanks, Pat, we'll talk to you again.

GRAY: Bye.

GLENN: You bet, bye bye. Here's our number, 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK.


 

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
