Glenn interviews Sarah Palin




Glenn Beck is seen here with Sarah Palin

GLENN: Hello, America, and hello to Sarah Palin.

SARAH PALIN: Hello.

GLENN: Are you in Texas today, Governor?

SARAH PALIN: I am in a tiny little town in Texas, just loving this sunshine.

GLENN: Where

SARAH PALIN: And getting ready to get on an airplane in Dallas.

GLENN: Where are you what tiny little town?

SARAH PALIN: I hate to expose the name and have them be but no, it's Giddings, Texas. Just the sweetest people who are here and it's great for my family to get to be here just kind of chilling until the next event tonight.

GLENN: I was in Tyler, Texas last Saturday and gave a speech and they made me an honorary Texan, which I appreciated. I said when Rick Perry handed me the honorary Texan certificate, I asked him, I said, is there going to come a time where I'm going to need to use this as a passport?

SARAH PALIN: Oh, I'm in Tyler in a couple of weeks and I do love being in Texas and I always kind of kick off my events here by saying how much I appreciate Texas. The independence of the people who are here and the patriotism. And it's always great to be in Alaska's little sister state of Texas.

GLENN: Little sister state. They appreciate that.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah.

GLENN: I was I think you are at the same place that I was at a couple of weeks ago. It's amazing, Sarah, what is happening with this particular business owner. You know, he's bringing these conservative people in. The night before I was there, it was about 10:00 at night and they were doing a concert at this arena and there was ZZ Top. And he went into a bathroom or something and he tries to turn on the water and the water was off. And he went to his building manager and said, hey, what's with the water. Just then the health inspector comes in. The health inspector now, 10:00 at night in the middle of a ZZ Top concert. Health inspector comes in and says, we notice that your water is off. And he said, you noticed that our water is off? And she said, yes, absolutely. Can you show us where your water pump is? So he takes them around and shows them the water pump and she said, yeah, we notice that we noticed that these valves had been turned a couple of days ago. He said, excuse me? You noticed these valves a couple of days ago? She said, yeah, we're going to have to, we're going to have to shut you down and you are not going to be able to do anything else for the rest of the weekend.

Now, I was going to give my speech the next day. The next morning they called and said, you know, you are going to be in violation; you've got to cancel this. He said, what happens if I don't cancel? And they said, well, it's going to be a misdemeanor, it will be a $2,000 fine. He said, fine me. They shut them down on a Friday night and tried to keep them closed and he says he's convinced that it's because people like you are coming in, me, and he's holding conservatives. And he said, even in his little teeny town of Tyler, Texas, he's getting the regulation heat.

SARAH PALIN: Unbelievable. You know, along those lines, does it ever make you feel like you may need a food taster in front of you, Glenn?

GLENN: Yes. Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Sarah, I have to thank you for the Time 100. I didn't know that you were writing the thing on me and I it was wonderful. Thank you very much.

SARAH PALIN: It sure was wonderful, wasn't it? But the 200 word essay, it wasn't enough room there to talk about so many things that

GLENN: Oh, please.

SARAH PALIN: No, listen. That Americans would love to hear about. What I wanted to interject in there and didn't have the space to do so was to talk about some of your personal stuff that has shaped your thinking on political and cultural stuff because you have faced the challenges that so many Americans perhaps are facing today and you've overcome them and you have a healthy perspective then on what's going on in our world and you are able to have some right priorities and work hard for those priorities. I wish that there had been more room in that essay to talk a little bit about that, that a lot of Americans don't know.

GLENN: Well, I appreciate it. I mean, but I thank you for, you know, for what you wrote. Are you coming on Tuesday to the Time 100?

SARAH PALIN: It's my plan. Piper and I will be in New York. So our plan is to be there. What about you?

GLENN: Can we make sure that we're sitting at the same table? I don't I went last year. It is a nightmare!

SARAH PALIN: Well, how did you face them? Because you know that there will be criticism of, oh, yeah, she condemns the mainstream media and yet she shows up at one of the functions.

GLENN: Whatever, shut up.

SARAH PALIN: Hey, look who's I don't mind making a couple of people uncomfortable in the room if I'm there. That's fine, too.

GLENN: Yeah. You know what? They're going to say whatever they're going to say, whether we show up or we don't show up.

SARAH PALIN: Right.

GLENN: I just want to sit at the table last time I was sitting at the table, I don't even remember who I was sitting at the table with. Everybody at the table hated my guts and, you know, I think one of them was the head of Newsweek magazine, and I remember asking the question at the table, "You know you guys are all in love with all of this stuff. Has anybody, has anybody stopped to think what America looks like after all of these changes are put into place?" And nobody said anything at the table. And I could tell nobody had even thought of that. They were all looking at the individual pieces but they hadn't looked at the whole puzzle. And it made people uncomfortable and I enjoyed that for that moment.

SARAH PALIN: Sure.

GLENN: I'd like to double team them as well.

Let me just talk to you about this. Did you see the people that are on the list? Because you are on the leaders and I'm on the leaders of the most influential people in the world.

SARAH PALIN: No. I only knew about you.

GLENN: Well, you know and you, right?

SARAH PALIN: And me.

GLENN: Let me give you the list of people that's on this and tell me if you see a pattern. First there's Lula da Silva, president of Brazil, a guy who was on the original founding, one of the founding members of the Workers World Party. Then there's Barack Obama. Then there's Ron Bloom, organized labor and Marxist, a guy who says that he kind of agrees with Chairman Mao, that power comes from the barrel of a gun and that the free market is dead. Then there is the prime minister of Japan who is described in Time as a revolutionary, liberal Democratic Party, wants more power and transparency. His election was called Historic Change. He's also a management professor, which I think Woodrow Wilson was. Then there's Dominique Strauss Kahn from the IMF, head of the IMF. He was running for president of France in 2007 under the Socialist Party ticket. He lost and now he's at the IMF. Then there is Bo Xilai. I don't know how to say it, son of the Chinese Communist Party leader. Then there is Christine Lagarde, minister of finance from France. She's described as being very brave because you ready she's for global interdependence. Then there is the prime minister of Turkey, openly critical of Israel and part of the Justice and Development Party. Then there's Nancy Pelosi. Then there's the prime minister of Palestine. Then there is the guy who was working for Prudential and helped bring on AIG. He's on the commission for Africa and the African Progress Panel. Bob Geldof loves him. Then there's Sister Carol Keehan, she was fighting for healthcare and fighting for social justice. Then there's the Sheik of the UAE. Then a guy named Li, a Chinese billionaire who is helping build China. Then there's you, Scott Brown, me, somebody in Atlanta who I have to meet. I have not met her. Hopefully she's going to be at this thing. We'll have maybe we can get her to sit at the table. She is the, one of the first people on the Tea Party movement and she also was the leader of the 9/12 project in Atlanta. John Kyle oh, her name is Jenny Beth Martin. And then Stanley McChrystal and you.

SARAH PALIN: Hmmm. What kind of company are we keeping there, Glenn?

GLENN: Isn't that amazing? Isn't that amazing? It is I mean, we see I look at this list and you can see. There are lines being drawn. It is Marxists, globalists, communists, and us.

SARAH PALIN: And some pieces of raw meat being thrown into the mix is what it sounds like. It's pretty fascinating and, no, I haven't known, you know, kind of what their criteria was for selecting these names.

GLENN: Well, I was surprised that you and I made it. You know, somebody I know that was in the room when they did the Time Man of the Year. Your name and my name was brought up I think by Giuliani and Gayle King and the others in the room said, oh, please. Gayle King said, don't make me vomit. So I mean, we were thrown out immediately and so were the Tea Parties, didn't even make it into the year end review.

SARAH PALIN: You know what this is going to allow us to do, Glenn, is just express further how much we love America and the opportunities that we have here, and it will be just the antithesis of so many of the statements and representations of all those other people that you just named off when we will be able to have kind of a platform then to even greater than you already have that allows us to remind Americans that we live the life that most people on the grove would never even be able to dream of and yet too many Americans find ourselves just taking for granted the American life that our founding fathers worked so hard to create. I'm looking at this as an opportunity to remind Americans of our exceptionalism that we need to re embrace and get back to and even in spite of the odd, odd characters that are included on this list with us. I'm going to capitalize on it and I'm going to do all that I can in kind of perpetuating what our message is reminding Americans of how fortunate we are.

GLENN: Sarah, we'll talk to you we'll see you Tuesday.

SARAH PALIN: That sounds wonderful.

GLENN: Thanks a lot. Talk to you again.

SARAH PALIN: Thank you.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

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."
