Glenn is O'Reilly's meat shield?




Watch The O'Reilly Factor weeknights at 8p and 11p ET on the Fox News Channel

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly is on the phone with us now. Hi, Bill.

O'REILLY: Hey, have you recovered from the Bold Fresh show last Friday?

GLENN: Me, they practically carried me out on their shoulders. You, on the other hand, they were —

O'REILLY: You know, you planted a lot of them in the audience, Beck. It was a sold out show.

GLENN: We got 10,000 people. How many were plants? How many were plants, Bill?

O'REILLY: I don't know, but a lot of people were saying, well, I'm way in the back! And then we had all these guys with farmer jeans.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: You know, with the straps on the shoulders. They were sitting in the first couple of rows. How could that happen?

GLENN: I didn't see any overhauls, overalls. I thought for a minute there you were making fun of my Levis. Just because you come out in —

O'REILLY: I was nervous. So anyway, I just wanted to tell everybody the Norfolk show was a big hit. And so if you live in Ohio or Missouri or Illinois and you want to get people to the St. Louis shows. Westbury, for those of you listening on WOR, you got about five hours because that's how fast tickets are going. So if you want to see the Bold Fresh, check out BoldFreshTour.com. All right, now what do you want to talk about today?

GLENN: You are taking on Weiner tonight.

O'REILLY: Anthony Weiner, the guy who hates you more than anyone else on Earth who has accused you of being gold finger. Mr. Bond, I expect you to die. You are the new goldfinger according to Congressman Weiner of New York.

GLENN: Can I be

O'REILLY: He's coming on The Factor to explain why he is spending so much time on you.

GLENN: Can I be in another like room, you know, in another box just petting a cat and maybe wearing a monocle? Whatever.

O'REILLY: I keep telling you that's not gold finger. That's goldfill petting a cat. No, he thinks that you are a villain and a danger to the republic and I'm going to give him his say tonight.

GLENN: Could you ask him —

O'REILLY: It will be interesting.

GLENN: Ask him a couple of questions.

O'REILLY: Yeah.

GLENN: You have Nouriel Roubini coming out and saying this; you have the Washington Post coming out and saying today in the Washington Post, one false move and the whole thing could collapse. One false move over in Europe and the whole thing could collapse, which is —

O'REILLY: The whole thing being the worldwide economy?

GLENN: Yes, Washington Post.

O'REILLY: But you think Anthony Weiner cares about that?

GLENN: I'm just wondering how am I a fear monger when you have — play the clip from Bill Clinton from this weekend. Listen to what Bill Clinton said at Yale University this weekend. Hang on. We're getting it. We're getting it. No, we don't have it. Anyway, basically what he said was it's unsustainable and, you know, it's just not going to, it's not going to last.

O'REILLY: I mean, sure. And that's what you said on Friday night in Norfolk. But I believe a big change is coming in that there's going to be an austerity program, the government's going to slash taxes and spending.

GLENN: No, no, but what I'm asking is how am I, how am I a fear monger when Bill Clinton is saying this to Yale graduates?

BILL CLINTON: The world is interdependent and to unstable, to unsustainable. Obviously if you want it to change, you have to find a way for everybody to win.

GLENN: First of all, I don't know how —

O'REILLY: That's insane. That can't possibly happen. Is that Clinton? Was he —

GLENN: It was Clinton this weekend at Yale.

O'REILLY: He was sober?

GLENN: I can't verify that, I didn't do a blood test.

O'REILLY: You might have to, Beck. You might have to run out. Look, in order for the economy, the worldwide economy to get on track, there's going to have to be a lot of pain. People are going to have to sacrifice, programs are going to have to be cut. The wild spending is going to have to cease and that's that. And Bill Clinton thinks everybody's going to have to win? I mean, where is this guy, living in the land of Oz? This is insane.

All right, let's get back to you, which is what you want to talk about. There isn't any rationality behind Anthony Weiner's charge that you are a fear monger. You know that. All they are trying to do is destroy you. They want to marginalize you. Now, I went through this for eight years?

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: Before —

GLENN: That's the only reason why you like, that's the only reason why you like me.

O'REILLY: They didn't bother me because I wasn't powerful enough but then I got powerful and it was eight years and that's why you got hired at Fox. I told the powers that be to hire Beck to take the heat off me and they did. So now I'm living large and you are getting pounded.

GLENN: Exactly right. That's the only reason you are defending me is because —

O'REILLY: That's it. You wouldn't have a job unless you took this role as —

GLENN: As a meat shield for you. So let me ask you, let me ask you this because you didn't —

O'REILLY: You should be proud of this, Beck. You should be proud.

GLENN: Oh, these guys are just giving me — they are just making me more and more credible. Every step of the way they make me more credible.

O'REILLY: Absolutely. You should be — look, who was it that said that you define a man by the quality of his enemies. You know, I mean —

GLENN: Well, these are crappy quality. I got a guy named Weiner. That's crappy quality.

O'REILLY: I think Weiner is a point man for the far left and they said, well, let's try to get Beck on this gold deal. So go out there and say this. That's all. They will be on to something else next week.

GLENN: Okay. So he has, like Media Matters I think is his PR person, somebody who used to work at Media Matters. Media Matters was the originator of this gold thing. That's Soros money. Center For American Progress, which is, you know, the hideout for Van Jones. You have Jim Wallis, spiritual and political adviser for the president. You have Andy Stern, adviser to the president, economic stuff. You had Van Jones who was in the White House for green jobs. You have Richard Trumka, all of them have websites directly, I mean, SEIU has a website that is, we're boycotting Beck. Jim Wallis, doing the same thing, boycotting Beck. What is —

O'REILLY: But that's like, that's like diabetics boycotting sugar, okay? You can — they are not going to buy it anyway. They would never watch you in a million years. So it means nothing.

GLENN: No, no, I'm not saying about me. What I'm saying is, are you going to get down to Weiner and saying, gee, this looks like a coordinated effort on the left and is Obama involved. Is the White House involved in this?

O'REILLY: Well, that's an interesting question, isn't it?

GLENN: Yes. Yes, it is.

O'REILLY: It is, very interesting question.

GLENN: You are not going to ask it, are you?

O'REILLY: Would you like to put some money on that?

GLENN: No, you made me bet against the economy of the world.

O'REILLY: Have you ever seen The Factor?

GLENN: Have I seen The Factor?

O'REILLY: You know what I do on The Factor, don't you?

GLENN: I don't know. You do some thing at the top where you are saying —

PAT: Body language stuff.

GLENN: Body language, you get some hot —

O'REILLY: Your favorite thing?

GLENN: You get this hot babe on and says, here is a nice interesting word and look at my chest. That's what happens.

O'REILLY: Uh huh. Well, I think you'll be interested to see the interview tonight but you've got to give Congressman Weiner some props for coming on and I do that. He's a stand up guy, comes on. He knows he's walking into an interesting situation tonight and he's still, so far

GLENN: Well, he knows he can't lose. He won in the district 100%.

O'REILLY: Well, he can't lose in his district but in the court of public opinion. Did you see what happened to P.J. Crowley on Friday night, the state department spokesman? No, you didn't because you were too busy.

GLENN: On stage, I'm on stage and I go out at the Bill O'Reilly/Glenn Beck tour and I walk out and I say — you know, I walk into this, I'm into like a mansion, his green room. And I walk in and he's got people fanning him and feeding him grapes and this gigantic TV and I said, hey, I'm just going out on stage. "Yep, just send somebody when it's my turn." He's watching him on TV.

O'REILLY: I had to watch that Crowley interview because he was posing, another far left guy. You know in the beginning I told you he might have been paranoid about the appointments. It looks like you are turning out to be right because every time we turn over another rock, the guy slithers out who's got this unbelievable radical left resume and he's in a position of responsibility. So I'm taking it much more seriously now than I did six months ago.

GLENN: Keep talking, man. This is like porn to me.

O'REILLY: And I have to give you that one. You were ahead of the curve on that.

GLENN: This is like Bill O'Reilly porn. Keep talking, Bill, keep talking.

O'REILLY: No, I just want you to repeat to the audience, I appeared in Ironman 2. I just want you to tell the audience again how green with envy you are.

GLENN: You just ruined the porn. I'm not interested in you anymore.

O'REILLY: Go see Ironman 2 for the babes.

GLENN: Well, I mean, you know, there's nothing like going in — I have to go in with a mask on into a theater in New York and then you pop up on the screen halfway through the movie and everybody just, everybody in the theater just looks at me like, "You," you're with him. And then I just had to say, "I hate that guy!"

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: That guy drives me crazy, too. I'm with you guys.

O'REILLY: Just like St. Peter on the crucifixion night, you denied it three times. "No, no, I'm not who you think I am."

GLENN: Okay, that would put me in the role of St. Peter, sure, but that I think makes you Jesus.

O'REILLY: No, I'm not trying to do that at all. I'm just making the Caesar analysis.

GLENN: Well, speaking of Peters, Weiner will be on Bill O'Reilly tonight.

O'REILLY: Oh, man, Beck. Come on, come on.

GLENN: He will be on tonight on the O'Reilly Factor. Bill, good to talk to you.

O'REILLY: All right, man.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."
