GLENN: Scott Baker from Breitbart.TV is with me now and he's going to be the guy conducting the interview tonight and he is asking questions that we have asked you, the audience, to send in. How many questions did you get?

BAKER: You're audience is unnecessarily cruel. I had already read, like, 870 something. So, actually last night I wanted to have a clear head. So, I went to the gym, had a nice dinner. I came back. There were 500 new questions..

GLENN: Really?

BAKER: I was up until 3:30.

GLENN: Do you have the questions ready? I mean, I

BAKER: I was going to read a couple to you, but I forgot my reading glasses. So

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Give me generally speaking I don't want to know any of the questions in advance, obviously, just honest questions is all I ask. But give me a general idea where we're headed. What are they what do the Insiders you'll see this tonight. I said I'll do you know, I'm not afraid of I'm not afraid of answering questions. I just want somebody with an honest agenda, an agenda of just asking honest questions, not got you questions.

BAKER: Right..

Glenn: So, where are we going on this?

BAKER: There are a lot of substance questions. And, in fact, the way that you phrased it reflects a lot of the attitude which is where are we going. A lot of people want to know your insights about, you know, the economy and politics, things you might expect. There are some very specific questions. I think there are people that are mad at you about some stuff. I know you've said the and for the audience, honestly, I mean, nobody I've been walking around here. Nobody has, you know, directed me about this. I'm the only one that's seen the questions. In fact, Pat just asked me during the commercial break, Well, what are some of the tough ones? And Glenn was, like, I don't want to hear it, I don't want to hear it. And

GLENN: You saw that on the Insider Extreme.

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: You probably didn't hear it, but if you saw me put my hands up, I said, No, no. I don't want to know it. And

BAKER: I will also say that I got to be the first guest on the fourth hour yesterday.

PAT: That was exciting for you, wasn't it?

BAKER: Yeah. It was. And

GLENN: You know, I understand, though, that you guys I didn't hear it you guys were giving him

BAKER: Ideas.

GLENN: You can make a question really, really hard. Like, this one will make him cry. And I'm like, This one will make him cry? Every one will make me cry. That's not a challenge.

PAT: We realized it would be more challenging no to make you cry. So

BAKER: And the bar is now can I make you walk off stage? That's really where the bar is.

GLENN: Thank you.

BAKER: I actually heard that in the hallway, too.

GLENN: Because and correct me if I'm wrong, Scott.

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: The staff is my biggest enemy.

BAKER: Well, I was going to reveal that to you tonight. I don't think like, if I wondered around I created a new category of staff questions.

GLENN: Because I've heard this. Everybody is walking in the hay. I walk into their office. They're like, yeah, I think we can make you walk off the stage. I'm, like, wait a minute. Hold it. That shouldn't be your you're supposed to be on my side.

BAKER: But if you're nervous, I said this on the fourth hour, I said it might actually be more interesting if I just interview Pat about you. We might learn more.

PAT: Seriously, that would be you would be more.

GLENN: We're moving on now. So, this is for the Insider Extreme tonight. The first session is The Future of History and I'm going to tell you some stories that are just incredible, things that you just didn't know that I think will inspire and uplift and it will show you also where we're headed as a company and where my head is and where I'm headed and kind of give you the beginning look at where I think the country needs to go, where you need to go.

Now, when I say that, when I say you, I use a blanket statement. There are some of you that are listening to me now that are, you know, at moveon.com and that's a separate monolog on where you can go, but but then the second half is questions from you. Part of the Insider Extreme concept is extreme access. So, the idea was questions that I just wouldn't, you know, answer and things that we do now, we do and everybody does this you have parameters, usually, on interviews because I don't need an interview. I don't want an interview. I don't need an interview so, I'm not going into, you know, things about my family and everything else, but this one I said we'll do it for the insiders, Insider Extreme, because I can trust we can pick a journalist that is not in our pocket but does not have an agenda and I will answer the questions that the listener wants to wants to know and a journalist will say, now, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute. I don't think he answered the question or whatever.

BAKER: You said I can hold your feet to the fire on this. And we're I know I'm just being a masochist here, but I think people can still submit questions. I'll try to look at the ones this afternoon, you know, but if we get buried by another 500, I don't possibly

GLENN: Do you want to do the Twitter thing?

BAKER: Well, you know, we're talking about whether it will be Twitter or e mail mail or telepathic.

GLENN: All right. Sign up for this special one night only broadcast from Times Square on Broadway in the Nokia Theater here in New York City, The Future of History, tonight, the broadcast on Insider Extreme only. Access it now. Become a member at glennbeck.com.

ATF agent caught taking photos of gun-buyer info — insists she's definitely NOT 'creating a registry'

Black Metal Firearms owner David Nagel originally recorded on video an ATF inspector taking pictures of his company’s documents to show what the gun industry is up against in the current political climate, but what he caught on camera has now gone viral.

Nagel joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to reveal exactly what happened the day he captured the shocking video, the threats made by that ATF inspector against his regular customers, and the insults she hurled toward all gun owners.

According to Nagel, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Industry Operations Inspector Pamela Scott began conducting a routine review, but things quickly went sideways when she started taking photos of the shop's detailed sales records — including the identities of every gun buyer.

Nagel said he confronted Scott and even asked if she was "creating a registry," by collecting the personal information of his customers.

"No, that would be illegal," she allegedly answered.

That's when Nagel decided it was time to capture Scott's actions on video.

"We had quite a bit of recording," he told Glenn. "But a lot of it, we were not able to share because there was personal information visible in it, you know, contact numbers and things of that sort. So, we didn't want to put [all of the video] on blast."

The little bit he did "blast" out on Instagram garnered tens of thousands of views and received a wide range of both outrage and support.

Nagel went on to explain how Scott responded when he told her his customers would not be comfortable with her collecting their information.

"She said, 'well, it sounds like your customers are just being paranoid. Maybe I should look into them a little bit more.' Which I thought was really creepy," Nagel said.

"That's a threat," Glenn stated.

"And she said, 'you have a few gun nuts in there.' And I politely corrected her. I prefer gun enthusiasts. And she said, 'no, they're nuts,'" Nagel told Glenn. "That was a kind of backhanded way of describing the average American. Because, if we're all nuts, then what are you governing us for?"

A video has been making the rounds on social media that appears to show Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) telling Fox News host Sean Hannity and Lara Trump that the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was “not a raid.”

The video, which has been viewed more than 3.5 million times as of this writing, was captioned "Ron DeSantis went on Hannity and things got SPICY." The (very badly) altered video inserted footage of DeSantis at a 2020 press conference to look like he was correcting Hannity's use of the word "raid" to describe the recent Mar-a-Lago debacle.

“It’s not a raid. With all due respect. It was not a raid. They were serving valid process in accordance with the laws and Constitution of the United States and the state of Florida. They did it with integrity. They did it with honor. And to say it’s a raid is disinformation," DeSantis says in the video, kicking off the alleged "spicy" back and forth.

Both Reuters and AP News have issued fact-checks to debunk the doctored video, because apparently people on Twitter can't decern the extremally, blatantly, painfully obvious alterations for themselves.

Did people really not notice that Hannity is stuck in a weird time loop that makes him appear to be suffering some sort of seizure? Or the way Lara's face is frozen mid-blink? Or how about DeSantis' beyond-even-the-world's-worst-mouth-breather default position when Hannity is speaking? And if none of that clued folks in, surely the crazy chyron would do the trick, right?

Maybe not.

DeSantis' then-press secretary Christina Pushaw (who just resigned from her job as press secretary to work as the rapid response director for the governor's re-election campaign) had to step in to set the record straight.

Gov. DeSantis joined Glenn Beck on the most recent "Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about the unrelenting leftist and media attacks accusing him of tyranny, and scaremongering about how he'll "kill" our "democracy."

DeSantis is unafraid to call out their lies and keep Florida on the front lines for freedom. When Disney tried to protest his Parental Rights in Education law, he stood his ground — and won. He did the same with CRT and woke prosecutors.

Now gearing up to take on ESG.

In the video clip below, he details what his state has already done, what the legislature is preparing to do, and why he's calling on other states to join in his anti-ESG battle: "If we pooled our voting rights together, we would be able to counteract what California and New York and a lot of these other pension plans are doing."

'Like Hunter Biden without the hookers': Why did Nancy Pelosi's son REALLY join Taiwan trip?

Nearly everyone, from President Joe Biden to the head of the United Nations, agreed that California Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan was dangerous. Even former President Barack Obama's ambassador to China, Max Baucus, said Pelosi's actions made Biden look even weaker than he already does — and that's really saying something.

So, why did Pelosi risk global war and go against her own party? If you listen to Politco, she's got a "decades-long" beef with China and just wanted to show support for the Asian nation, but the timing of her trip suggests there’s likely more to the story.

On "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposed the Pelosi family's (including her son) lucrative connections to Taiwanese companies and revealed how certain business deals directly related to their trip to Taiwan.

"Nancy Pelosi and her husband and their son ... they love money as a family. By the way, did you know her son went on that trip and was doing business with, oh, wow, some of the people she was meeting with? Did you know that?" Glenn asked. "Sounds a little like Hunter Biden without the hookers and the crack."

Glenn pointed out that when Pelosi was elected to Congress, "somewhere in the late 1700s," her net worth was about $3 million, but by 2008 her family's wealth had ballooned to $31 million. By the end of the Obama term, her wealth had doubled to $61 million, and just two years later it shot up to $114 million.

"Wow! That is not bad beans for a meager public servant. They [Pelosi and her husband] must be master investors and it just took getting elected to public office to truly unlock that secret," Glenn quipped. "Or they were privy to some sort of information that the rest of us don't have access to, kinda like the sale of $5 million in computer chip stock before Congress voted on a recent semiconductor bill," he continued.

"But, surely, Taiwan has nothing to do with their own little private cash machine, right? ... I'm sure it had nothing to do with her husband's stock trading of companies that make computer chips. And it has nothing to do with, at the same time, Nancy is working on a semiconductor bill. It surely has nothing to do with the fact that the largest semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, is right there in Taiwan, right? I mean, surely, with all of this heat, Nancy Pelosi would be smart enough not to be seen anywhere near Taiwan's semiconductor manufacturers," Glenn said.

"I'm not saying this might double the Pelosis' millions again, but I'm not not saying that either, you know?" he added.



On the radio program, Glenn continued to break down the hushed business deals between the Pelosi family and Taiwanese companies and revealed how it all directly relates to their not-at-all suspicious trip to the Asian nation.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
