Glenn Beck: Baio and Beck

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK is the phone number, and I have to we were just talking off the air about, I have Michael Bublé's new CD and it's fantastic and if you are a long time listener to the program, you know Michael's been on the program a few times, been on the television show with us, and he's a great guy. But I want to give him full permission to claim that we have never met. And even if we did meet at one point or we did, you know, we were seen together, he hates my guts because I think I'm poison now for people like Michael Bublé. God bless him. So remember, Michael, you met me he was crazy. He wasn't even making sense. I just, I just try to play long, just make him go away. Go ahead, I got it, I got it. Between you and me, his new CD is well worth the price. Download it on iTunes or grab it. It's really, really good.

So now this weekend I get a tweet from somebody who is retweeting something that Scott Baio had written. Somebody was saying something about him and he was like, you know, you shouldn't follow me because I'm a fan of Glenn Beck. And so I see these tweets going back and forth where they're starting to bash Scott Baio for saying that he likes me and I'm like, oh, boy. And so I decided to tweet, good job, Scott Baio. And then it got ugly. And so I wanted to get Scott on the phone. Hey, Scott, how are you?

BAIO: Good morning.

GLENN: How are things?

BAIO: Things are, things are well, Glenn. How are you? It's a pleasure to talk to you.

GLENN: Good talking to you. You know that's the way usually people start with after they've been seen with me or they've stuck up for me or something. You'll say, how are things? And they'll go, well, you know, things are pretty, you know, things are pretty good.

BAIO: I'm actually just half asleep in my bed. It's raining here. No, but I watched you. Was it CNN or MSNBC you were on before?

GLENN: Good God almighty it was CNN.

BAIO: I watched you there. So yeah, I've been a fan for a while.

GLENN: Did you what is your life like now that you have said that you're a fan? Because I've seen some of the some of the stuff that comes in to me, you know, from death threats, you know, all the way.

BAIO: Right.

GLENN: Did you expect the kind and are you, first of all, are you getting nasty tweets now about you?

BAIO: I get nasty tweets for saying nothing.

GLENN: Who's like on Twitter, I'm going to take Scott Baio down?

GLENN: I get nasty tweets and I do a show nobody likes. But no, it doesn't bother me. I've been doing this, Glenn, since I'm a little boy and people have been talking bad about me since I'm a little boy. And it's okay. It's part of the game that I'm in. And at a certain point, you know how's your daughter, by the way, Glenn?

GLENN: You know, really good. And I understand we have something in common. You have a daughter of special needs as well.

BAIO: No, I don't. But we have a our daughter was falsely diagnosed with a metabolic disorder when she was very young, but she's healthy and fine. And we started a foundation called the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation which deals with metabolic disorders. And anyway, so my life that stuff doesn't bother me. I speak my mind. I speak my mind at my work and it doesn't affect me. But what I wanted to tell you is that's when I knew you were a good guy and it didn't matter what people said about me in terms of me watching you, when you choked up on television talking about your daughter. And I just thought, oh, man. And I wouldn't have gotten that until I had my own daughter.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAIO: And I respected you for that and I know a lot of people probably said it was an easy play for you. I don't think so, to do that on air. But anyway

GLENN: You know, they actually say that I'm acting. Don't you think

BAIO: That's what I meant to say.

GLENN: Don't you think if I'm acting, don't you think I deserve an Emmy?

BAIO: Yeah, I thought you were really good.

GLENN: Seriously I said the other day, I demand a damn Emmy. Put your money where your mouth is. If I'm acting, then I deserve a damn Emmy.

BAIO: You were really good.

GLENN: No, I want it. I want the Emmy. That's fantastic. So

BAIO: But anyway, it doesn't bother me.

GLENN: How long have you been, if I may, how long have you been "Out" as a conservative?

BAIO: Well, my wife, I campaigned for Reagan, for Bush 41, and so as far back you know, I've been thinking this way since I can remember. This is how I was raised. This is the neighborhood I grew up in. There's certain beliefs that I have.

GLENN: Where do you live now?

BAIO: I'm sorry?

GLENN: Where do you live?

BAIO: I live in L.A.

GLENN: Good God almighty, what is wrong with you?

BAIO: Yeah, I know. It's pretty hairy out here.

GLENN: You ain't kidding.

BAIO: Where are you, Philly or New York?

GLENN: I'm in New York.

BAIO: I don't know which is worse. But and somebody said on the Twitter, why am I going against the grain in terms of my beliefs. And I said, I thought I was the grain. I thought the things that I believed in were the things that this country stood for. And there's very few things that I truly believe in and

GLENN: Hang on just a wait a minute. I've got to go back to that. Why would you go against the grain on what you believe in?

BAIO: No, no. They felt that what I believed was against the grain.

GLENN: Yeah, but what difference does the grain make if you believe in something?

BAIO: Well, I don't know. And my argument was I thought I was the grain.

GLENN: You are.

BAIO: I thought the way that I thought in terms of politics and country

GLENN: Yeah.

BAIO: Were things that I grew up with. I believe in the military. I believe in people doing for themselves, which is what I was taught as a boy. You provide for yourself; don't look for anybody. I believe in keeping what you make, or most of it. And I believe in killing bad guys.

GLENN: See, that's the problem. That is the grain of America. But too many people see dismiss those, depending on what their party says they're for. The parties mean nothing. The candidates mean nothing. It's the grain. And if the candidate is for the grain, then okay, that's my guy.

BAIO: Right. And my problem really is with both sides, Glenn, as it is yours. I had a problem with Bush. And I met him, and I agree with a lot of what he did and I disagree with a lot of what he did. But I don't want people telling me what I and I don't care which party you belong to, independent, Republican, Democrat, the kook party, it doesn't matter to me. As long as what you're telling me is real and it's the truth and it's something that I can say, you know what, I agree with this guy on you know, it's like buying a house. If you can get seven out of the ten things you want in a house, you buy it. And this is what you're going to get with politicians.

GLENN: Let me make a recommendation. If you're in Los Angeles, I don't care if you get eleven out of ten things, don't buy the house.

BAIO: (Laughing).

GLENN: Scott Baio, the name of your foundation is what again?

BAIO: Bailey Baio Angel Foundation. It's for children with metabolic disorders, which is a sort of small community, and we've had it for about a year or so. And it's just to bring awareness to metabolic to expanded newborn screening and to people with metabolic disorders. That's the short of it.

GLENN: Scott, best of luck to you, man. Sorry for the hassle and you'll learn your lesson. Don't tweet about me anymore.

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!"

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:
