Pat Buchanan Interview



GLENN: All right. Let's go to Pat Buchanan. Pat, welcome to the program. I have to tell you, you have been called everything from political genius to a hate mongering racist but more and more it seems like more and more people will start calling you absolutely right because what you have been talking about for years and years is now showing up in everyday living rooms and people are saying, wait a minute, this is bad news. Now you've come out with some new information. You say America might be over.

BUCHANAN: Glenn, what I'm saying is congratulations on your book.

GLENN: Thank you, sir.

BUCHANAN: What I'm saying is I see a nation which used to be one nation and one people even though we were segregated in the 1950s and working to end that, I see America decomposing and deconstructing, deconstructing, breaking down along the lines of race and ethnicity and class and different moralities and I think America's becoming what Theodore Roosevelt warned us against, which is the squabble of tangling nationalities.

GLENN: Yeah.

Day of Reckoning

by Patrick J. Buchanan

BUCHANAN: And I think that's happening for a variety of reasons. One is the culture of war we are in which has divided us so terribly. Another is the mass immigration from peoples, from countries and continents who have never before been assimilated. The third is the complete collapse of the melting pot that brought our grandparents and great-grandparents and sort of forced us all together to become something new called Americans. I see all these things happening and I think all of us see them out there. And what I'm pointing out in the book "Day of Reckoning" is we've got a perfect storm of crises ahead and that is one of the biggest.

GLENN: I have to tell you, Pat, I said this 18 months ago. I posted on my website and said it on TV and I've got to tell you, I got hammered for saying that there is a perfect storm coming. And everybody always pulls it apart and says, oh, we're mark, we'll survive. And I said, we've never faced this many huge problems. Any of these by themselves we could deal with, but they are all coming together at the same time, and most Americans do not see this storm that is coming, and it is truly frightening if you care about our country.

BUCHANAN: We could just list a few of them. The dollar is heading in the direction of the Mexican Peso. We see it every day. You've got the United States involved in two wars and the chairman of the Army chief of staff says our Army is breaking. We're committed to defend 50 or 60 countries around the world and we're adding to it when our Army is half the size of what we had in the peace time years of Ronald Reagan. We see Social Security and Medicare, they are headed right down the road toward us.

GLENN: Let me ask you a couple, let me ask you a couple of pointed questions, Pat. First of all, I look at Social Security and Medicare and I've seen the table of pain that Secretary Snow put out and was the reason why he was kind of brushed to the side of what it is going to take to be able to survive this economic crush that is coming our way. When you look at that and you know the realities, how is it these politicians can add prescription drugs and then on top of it be talking about healthcare? With the dollar going down, it is almost like it's being orchestrated.

BUCHANAN: Well, you know, you sound like me, Glenn.

GLENN: I know, and that scares the bat crap out of me.

BUCHANAN: 10 shows this morning I've been saying exactly that. Look, we've got Medicare, Social Security going to eat up the entire budget. And we add prescription drugs and now we're going to add national health insurance. Look, all this is going to eat up the entire budget of the United States, you'll have to double taxation. We don't have the money anymore.

GLENN: It's not only that we don't have the money. If you take, if you went house to house in America and say, America, I'm going to convince you, give me all of your stuff, if Americans gave all of their stuff to the government, we still would not be able to cover what we're already on the line for.

BUCHANAN: You know, I think I saw it, David Walker, he is head of the accounting office of the comptroller general.

GLENN: It's amazing, isn't it?

BUCHANAN: You are talking about $57 trillion in unfunded mandates that you are going to have to pay. Where are they going to get the money for this? You can't tax everything.

GLENN: You know, Pat, I tell you we tried to get this guy on for a while and the policy has always been, GAO doesn't talk about things, but this will show you how freaked the people who are not connected to the politics of this thing really are. Here's the guy who does the numbers crunching and he's now starting to say, to hell with it; I've got to tell people about this.

BUCHANAN: Exactly. He is walking around. He is like a Cassandra walking around warning us. But I'll tell you, Peterson did a book a number of years ago right down this line on Social Security. There are others that have done it. There are others, even journalists who are saying, what are you going to do about this. And obviously, look, the politicians, they don't want to say, well, you know, we may have to raise the age of retirement, we may have to cap benefits, we may have to do this or that. And that's just Social Security. And as I list in my book, Medicare makes Social Security look like a little bookkeeping error.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, absolutely. Let me real quick, because I'm running out of time and I know we have a half hour with you on television tonight. Do you believe, do you believe in the conspiracy theory that we have forces in our government, we have forces in global corporations and we have forces outside our country that are trying to take our sovereignty and push us all together in one European Union style government?

BUCHANAN: Sure. I think it's wide open, I think it's right out in the open. I think the corporations all consider themselves global. They don't like the idea of borders, they don't like the idea of different laws. They want the United States, Mexico and Canada united the way European Union is so they got one big economic market. All is economics. You've got Mexican president Vicente Fox who is out of office now is open about the fact that he wants a basic merger of the United States and Mexico much like the European countries have been merged together. I think this is on the table. I think it is ongoing. That is the greatest single threat to American sovereignty. And Glenn, while the tremendous battle has been fought by the American people to defeat this amnesty bill and to demand action on the border, that great coalition sort of dissolves, they go back home and these guys are working night and day on K Street and other places to move us in that direction. Half of the largest economic entities on Earth today are not governments. They're corporations.

GLENN: Yeah.

BUCHANAN: Global corporations.

GLENN: The "Day of Reckoning" and it is here, my friend. And Pat, you'll join me for a half hour of television tonight and we'll get into this and so much more. I wish you the best and thank you for having the courage to stay the course and speak your mind and speak out for as long as you have. I think Americans are starting to see more and more how right you have been. Pat Buchanan, thank you, we'll see you tonight.


There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
