Glenn Beck: Who's the lying sack of dog mess now?

GLENN: Scott Baker is on the phone now from Breitbart TV. Scott, is this the most ridiculous story you've ever reported on?

BAKER: Oh, yeah, if not number one, it's got to be in the top five. And really it was because I felt personally responsible that you got annihilated because we were the ones that put up the original story the Monday after the dinner, when Whoopi gets on at the beginning of your appearance and says, somebody sent me this link, and I got really pissed off.

GLENN: You were the one?

BAKER: So I felt like I owed it to you to figure out what actually happened.

GLENN: I didn't know that. You what are you doing to me, man?

BAKER: I think it was, you know, I don't know, it was karma. My co host Liz Stephans and I were at the Hilton the night of the dinner and I saw and, in fact, I had this cool live backpack that let me wander around broadcasting live from inside the Hilton, and I saw Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg. I did not see you, but I heard that you were there in your pirate cummerbund and everything. And so on Monday

GLENN: You cannot wear

BAKER: When I heard you tell the story about the train, I took it I think the same sort of tone you did. It was just sort of this odd little, you know, amusing thing.

GLENN: Yeah, just a funny stupid little story.

BAKER: Put that up as a post. In fact, people were really interested in because I think they are interested in the idea of privileged media elites being treated like privileged media elites.

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: And so all of a sudden this becomes I'm watching The View when you were on and I'm like, I cannot believe that this is happening.

GLENN: Okay. So hang on just a second. You know, you took the right approach to this story that they missed entirely and that is, you know, as an aside at the end of the story, I said this is why the media thinks, you know, all of these things are great, because they get this special privilege and they're like, "No, I ride Amtrak. I mean, what's wrong with Amtrak?" No, you don't ride Amtrak the way the regular people ride Amtrak. You just were escorted through the train station with police officers. Then they walked you into the car where there were magically some seats available that nobody was sitting in. You know what I mean?

BAKER: Would that that was exactly it. To me the heart of the story was not like who said hi to who. The heart of the story became hypocrisy and that's when I really got interested. In fact, that's when I sort of got a little ticked off because as I started to check on it and you guys are already talked about it a little bit on the air and Stu the played the clip showing that you never even said she came over to you. And still I thought, you know, what happens on here's a national television show that takes this rising conservative media star and spends an entire seven minute segment. And there are women that watch that show that may not have seen your Fox show, may not pay attention to anything and they are going to have a lingering impression, "Oh, this is the guy that makes stuff up," right?

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: It's easy to throw that out there, make fun of you for not saying, "Are you a reporter, do you check your facts" and then they move on and they don't want to hear about it. So that's when I started putting in calls to the Amtrak PR guys, the ABC PR guys. And honestly I thought I would get a little bit of response. I was astounded, stonewall everywhere. And so that's when I thought, all right, well, I'm just going to keep at this. And so that's what I did.

GLENN: Hold on.

BAKER: And that's when it cracked.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Because you are a reporter. I'm not. When you got stonewalled, did you think, holy cow, did you go into this thinking that maybe I was making this up or I mean, how did you approach this and when did you know, oh, my gosh, ABC is lying?

BAKER: Yeah. Well, yes, you are right, you've got me because, you know, we've had you on your show that we do on Breitbart TV, the B Cast and we've hung out just a little bit a couple of times you've been in Pittsburgh and so I knew firsthand that you are a lying sack of dog mess. I knew that right away.

GLENN: (Laughing).

BAKER: So I went in with that, you know, as my obviously.

GLENN: Yes, yes. Glenn is clearly a lying sack of dog mess.

BAKER: Exactly. And in fact, what happened, I called I thought, you know what, I'm going to start with Amtrak, you know, before I call ABC.

GLENN: Okay.

BAKER: Because since Barbara Walters had said on the air, you know, a reporter should check out facts, you should have called me, it would have been no problem. I was expecting I'd have no problem on getting information from ABC. So I called Amtrak, left a message for the guy in their New York office and then actually in the piece that we have on the site, we include part of this episode.

GLENN: That's amazing.

BAKER: We were doing our live webcast.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Which is on after 4:00 and the guy called right at, you know, 4:05 or something like that. And I got one of those things on my iPhone that was like, you know, blocked number and I thought, this is the guy. And if I wait until our show's over, he's going to be gone. So I just answered the phone live, legally just record you know, because it was live for our audience watching. They could hear me but they couldn't hear him.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on, Scott. We're going to include this in our free e mail newsletter, we're going to include the link. What time did we get in Eastern time last night? 3:00 a.m., 3:30? 3:30 Eastern time we arrived in San Diego last night and I was so tired, but we stood in my hotel room with the laptop on the bed and we all stood there and we watched this for 20 minutes last night. And you see you on the phone with the guy from the Amtrak and they can just see the wheels in your head going, "You've got to be kidding me, man."

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: So we're going to include this whole video that he's talking about with the newsletter, and it's a good thing that we have a newsletter that is about 100,000 shy of the New York Times circulation. So we can correct the message. We don't need the media to do that for us. But it's an amazing thing to watch because of the media arrogance.

All right. So you have him on the phone. You're recording this and what does he say to you?

BAKER: Well, he gives me this very carefully prepared thing that says, it is not the policy of Amtrak to reserve, you know, seats, and there are some exceptions. And it was very vague, right? And listen, I had gone to the terms and conditions section of the Amtrak website. I can see, you know, how they worded things. And I went in. I tried to say to him even on that call, it's like, if Amtrak has a policy, we reserve seats for VIPs, no problem.

GLENN: No problem at all.

BAKER: Then reserve away. Great, treat them however you want them. That's fine. But if your policy is you can't reserve seats, then I kind of want to know. But he actually made fun of me wanting to know what happened. He said, "We're not investigating this because the parties, neither of the parties involved have requested that." And I said, "Well, why would they? Glenn Beck was on the train. He knows what happened. He doesn't have to call you and say, what happened to me." And I said, "And Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg aren't going to call you. I said, I'm calling you." And didn't want to answer it. And I said, well you know I'm going to call the Washington office. And he said, you'll get the same answer. I called the Washington office and he was exactly right; same answer.

GLENN: You should have called me because I would have asked for that investigation. You should have called me.

BAKER: But I wasn't I thought I didn't even like, you know, call your office and say, "Get Glenn to beg for..." because I thought, I'm just going to leave you guys out of it, see what I can find out. The top PR guy was out of town. So I was going to wait. That's why it took like an extra week to figure this out. And in the meantime then, you know, I start to kind of find out who is the PR person for The View and all that. Finally the top guy at Amtrak calls me back and I actually have the first adult conversation that I had the entire two weeks, and I was expecting he was nice, which was shocking, and I was expecting that I'd get the same kind of basic answer, but he said, I have some news for you. And I kind of just like gulped. And he said, I can confirm that ABC did contact Amtrak to request a police escort for Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg. And I was like, well, holy cow. You know, that's kind of what Glenn described. And then he said

GLENN: They came in, and they came in and that's exactly what happened.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: I said that on the air.

BAKER: And he said, here's the deal on how, you know, on probably what happened with the train. And he admitted he did not talk to the person that was the cabin attendant and he didn't know. So it's still unclear whether ABC requested specific seats, but really that doesn't matter. We know that ABC requested special accommodation for Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg, special treatment.

GLENN: Wait. But wait. We called Barbara Walters' office and you just asked her and she said, if you just want to know, you just call my office.

BAKER: So I e mail the PR guy at The View. I basically get ridicule, right? In fact, when I started he was like, you know, who are you, you know? And I was like, okay, that's a fair question. Not everybody in the world goes to Breitbart TV. And so I kind of laid it out a little bit, and honestly and I'm hoping you are sitting down. This is what he said about our story. He said, "That train has left the station."

GLENN: (Laughing).

BAKER: That was it, you know. I was like, come on. So finally after I think that this is I'm not going to get anything, I finally send an e mail and I say, listen, Amtrak has now confirmed information about what ABC requested. I'm going to go ahead and do the story whether you guys comment or not, but do you want to comment. He writes back and says, well, I'm not going to comment on something that I don't know what the allegation is. So I write back now saying what the allegation is and then I get an e mail from Whoopi Goldberg. And now, of course, now my dreams and hopes have all come true, you know. And like I'm exaggerating.

GLENN: Be very, very careful what you say about these did you get an e mail from her first? Did you send it? Be very careful on what you say here.

BAKER: Right, exactly. So when I say I got an e mail from Whoopi Goldberg, I got a forwarded e mail by her PR guy that was addressed "To whom it may be concerned."

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: But guess what. I'm the one who may be concerned. So I took that as answering me.

GLENN: Yes. But she probably had no intention of actually answering you. She may not have known that it was even going to you.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: Why are you such a liar, Scott?

BAKER: I know, I know.

GLENN: So what does it say?

BAKER: And basically it just restated everything that happened on the show which is, in fact, what the PR guy had said in one of the e mails. "They talked about this on the air. Didn't you see it." And so she said, you know, here's what happened; Glenn Beck was wrong; I called him out. And it just and I was like, well, that doesn't answer any actual question. So I wrote back, thanked her and the PR guy for responding in the first place. And I said and I was very clear. Said, look, I understand it is possible, maybe even probable that the women, Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg, didn't know that ABC had requested this. However, I think that as you get out of your Town Car and police are around you walking you along, it might occur to you not every Amtrak passenger is getting this sort of escort. So I found that but still possible that they thought maybe Amtrak just on their own, you know, they won the Amtrak lottery that day.

GLENN: Sure.

BAKER: So I wrote back and I said, here are my questions, though. And I was very specific because I went over. I said, you know, Glenn never said that Barbara Walters approached him, you know, on the train. He didn't say, "I accused Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters of reserving seats on this train." He just said, "I got on the train and they told me that's seats were reserved and then these people got on." So this is all silly except for the fact that it became a seven minute segment where it was clear that Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg are like, we're going to take this guy down a notch; we want to wipe that smug smile off his face. And that's the part that got me mad. And I get an answer back from the PR guy that just says, there will be no further, you know, communication about this story. So I get nothing from Barbara Walters, nothing from her office. So after all of this, you know, sort of sanctimonious lecturing of you

GLENN: Do me a favor. Do me a favor. Will you write this down for me in a short pithy what you have. I'm going to attach it to a letter myself and I am going to send it to Barbara Walters' office myself because she said, "All you have to do is call." That's fine. I would like a statement back from her.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: On what we have done. I'm not a journalist, I'm not an investigative reporter, but you are and so this is what has happened. I would like a response and an apology.

BAKER: That you didn't ask for.

GLENN: I did ask for, but it is such a stupid story. It is such a stupid story. I don't think this story is about me. This story is about, you know, look, if I'm an average Joe, do you do all this work on this stupid story for an average Joe? You don't, do you?

BAKER: I feel bad about that, but yes, you are probably right.

GLENN: Yeah. Because it doesn't matter.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: So if you are the average Joe, look how this media wheel can just come and crush people. Barbara Walters, arguably one of the most credible women in America, looked at me with that Barbara Walters face, "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be," and said to me, we need to know what your character is, we need to know who you really are, after she accused me of lying.

BAKER: Right. Repeatedly.

GLENN: I mean, who wins on that, especially with her audience, who wins in that argument? Well, she clearly does. And she has besmirched my good name. I tell you, I wasn't as mad as I really ended up being until I spoke to my wife. And my wife was so angry, she said, "How dare they. This I was on the train. I witnessed all of it. Don't you understand what they've done? Look at what they're doing. How could they possibly do that to somebody?" And to me it's such a stupid story, it doesn't matter. But I would like to see Barbara Walters' response now.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: Because I contend, Scott, that it really is I can see Barbara Walters being so out of touch with her lifestyle now because she's lived this for so long. She needs police and she, you know, blah, blah blah, blah blah.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: And I have no problem with that. And I could see her not even, you know, just thinking, "Well, that's kind of... well, it always is like this." Whoopi Goldberg thinks, "Well, it's just always like this when I'm with Barbara." I don't know, but somebody owes me an apology to say, Glenn, I'm sorry, we didn't know; you know, Barbara was just Norma Desmond and didn't know this is the life she's leading now. And, you know, Whoopi, "I didn't know, either." Somebody needs to do that. Would you put something pithy together for me?

BAKER: I will be glad to write it up. The heart of it is exactly what you said. The incident is stupid. The hypocrisy and the stonewalling, it points to the bigger problem. And it's this ability of that sort of liberal media elite to try to effect a takedown, whether it's you or Joe the plumber. It's like, we're going to come in, we're just going to go bap, bap, bap, bap, bap, and then move on and you can't call us on it.

GLENN: That's right.

BAKER: And that's what I tried to do was call them on it.

GLENN: We're going to put this in our newsletter today at GlennBeck.com. Thank you for wasting so much time on this story.

BAKER: You got it.

GLENN: You've got to watch the whole thing, it's amazing.

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
