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.

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?
