Glenn talks with O'Reilly

Bold & Fresh Tour

It's time for the truth -- straight up, whether you like it or not. Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck are teaming up and going on tour. Your town may never be the same.

GLENN: But I can tell you who disagrees with me, I'm sure, that it's being pushed. Mr. Bill O'Reilly. Hello, Bill.

O'REILLY: I don't disagree with you, Beck.

GLENN: Come on.

O'REILLY: I think our alone but I don't disagree with you on it. No, I mean, a progressive agenda is basically do whatever you want. There's no such thing as God. So you don't have to worry about that. And society stabilization, we don't really want a stable society, progressives don't, because we want everybody to do whatever they want. Not about society; it's about you. So —

GLENN: Hang on. Because this is the difference between you and me. You and I both agree on that.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: That they are pushing, that they don't want a stable society.

O'REILLY: Absolutely.

GLENN: But my contention is that they want an unstable society because they want to be the stabilizing factor. It gives them power and control because if you can't manage yourself, well, somebody has to be there to help.

O'REILLY: That's an interesting theory. Power and control, yes, sure. They want it. Do they want to weaken individual mettle? Maybe. But I think it's more of a philosophical thing with them. They do want the power and they do want the control, there's no doubt about it. And they will do anything to get it, and I mean anything. They will smear, they will destroy people, they will — you know, it's disgusting. The progressive movement of the United States is just flat out disgusting.

GLENN: Have you followed what's been happening in Washington this week with the America's Future Now?

O'REILLY: No. Those — I leave that to you guys. I've got to deal with the big boy in the Oval Office. That's where I'm dealing with.

GLENN: Come on. He's a puppet.

O'REILLY: He's not a puppet.

GLENN: Yes, he is.

O'REILLY: This guy is a true believer

GLENN: The only thin he doesn't have is little sticks on his hands while George Soros is making his hands move while he talks.

O'REILLY: No, you're wrong on that. This guy, Obama, he's a powerful guy. He's too powerful in my opinion right now and, yeah, he uses Soros and he uses these guys, but he uses them. That's the keyword. They don't use him.

GLENN: So wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. So wait. He's the architect of all of the power behind him? He's the guy who —

O'REILLY: Not the architect of the power but he is the decider much more so than George W. Bush was, although Bush did exercise a lot of power in that Oval Office, particularly in foreign policy. But he ceded a lot of power to rove and people like that. Obama, you know, it looks like he's skiing power to Rahm Emanuel and Axelrod, and I used to believe that.

GLENN: Oh, I don't think so.

O'REILLY: I don't believe it anymore.

GLENN: No, I don't believe that.

O'REILLY: I think this guy is in charge.

GLENN: Center For American Progress.

O'REILLY: And I think Michelle Obama is the second most powerful person.

GLENN: Oh, I would agree with you on that one. I would agree with you on that.


GLENN: So Bill, what do you suppose that Van Jones meant this week when he said this. He was speaking in front of the America's Future Now and this is where they started throwing things at Nancy Pelosi. These are the radical progressives.

O'REILLY: That's are the real loons.

GLENN: Real loons. They started throwing things at her and Van Jones gets up and he gives one of the keynotes and he says, look, I've got good news for you. This week is going to go down in history as a week of change because this is going to be remembered in the future as the week when the administration chose to be a progressive again. And he talked about this president is behind you. You've got to get in front of him. You've got to be pushing because he'll do it. And he talked about that something had changed. When we see the president coming out and saying, hey, I've got, you know, I'm going to see whose ass to kick, he was sending a message to the real left loons, not to America but to the left loons that, "I'm going to take care of things." Do you believe that something has changed?

O'REILLY: No. I don't — look, Van Jones is basically a posturer. He postures. I don't believe Van Jones has any access to anybody. Did he know anything. I think Obama did the butt kicking thing, and we're going to talk with you about this on The Factor tomorrow primarily because his poll numbers are catering. When you've got 69% of the public saying you are screwing up you've got to do something and so he decides to be a macho man with Matt Lauer. That's all that was to me and I didn't see any extension of anything else.

GLENN: Did you watch my show last night?

O'REILLY: I did watch a little bit of it, yeah.

GLENN: Because you sit in your office and you —

O'REILLY: I peruse.

GLENN: I know. I'm thinking about taking — because your stuff from your show, you know, you write your talking points.


GLENN: Sometimes they are in the computers early.


GLENN: We hacked in one day.

O'REILLY: You could steal my stuff.

GLENN: I was thinking about it.

O'REILLY: Radio and television.

GLENN: I know that you watch at least the first minutes — I know you are sitting at your desk at 5:00 and I thought, wouldn't it be great if we just started, and here are the talking points tonight.

O'REILLY: And when I use the tape at 8:00 and say, hey, who do you think is plagiarizing my show.

GLENN: No, no, I figured it ended this way. About 5:15 there'd be a box by my studio door and somebody would come down with a security guard and say, get your stuff and get out, Beck.

O'REILLY: It would be me. I don't use surrogates.

GLENN: We're going to be out in Columbus, Ohio and also in —

O'REILLY: Let me do this plug, okay?

GLENN: I mean, it's —

O'REILLY: I want everybody in St. Louis and Columbus to listen up right now. Everybody in Illinois, everybody in Missouri, in Ohio and the surrounding states there. Beck and I, you hear us on the radio but you've got to see us in person. You just have to. There's a 45 minute Beck/O'Reilly, we do separate deals and we take intermission, then we come back. And O'Reilly and Beck are basically debriefing each other, asking Q&As. We never know where it's going to go, we don't know what's going to be said.

GLENN: Well, we do know I end up the victor every time.

O'REILLY: You know, your six people are cheering to my 8,000 going God almighty, why does O'Reilly share the stage with the man.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: But it is really something you'll never see on television and radio because we don't have 45 minutes to do that.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: So we want everybody to go and check us out in Columbus, Ohio on the 18th of June. Great Father's Day gifts by the way and then the 19th in St. Louis. We're only going to do one other date in the summer because Beck has to get a lot of time off. That's July 31st at Westbury and that will be sold out by Monday, those of you listening on WOR. So you want to see us, this is it for you guys. You've got to get in. So we're looking forward to it, coming out to Ohio and to Missouri. There's going to be a lot of fun. We hope everybody comes to see us. I have never had a complaint on one of those shows, have you?

GLENN: Let me ask you something. May I? May I?


GLENN: Where are we going to be? We're going to be in Columbus, Ohio and where? Where else?

O'REILLY: St. Louis.

GLENN: St. Louis what?

O'REILLY: Missouri.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Because the last time you said Missoura and I was wondering where the A is.

O'REILLY: You can say it either way. So I alternate.

GLENN: What did you say?

O'REILLY: You can say it either way. So I alternate.

PAT: You can put an A in the word Missouri?

GLENN: I don't think so.

O'REILLY: In the southern part of the state as you guys probably know

GLENN: No, I don't.

O'REILLY: that's how they say it.

GLENN: Missoura?

O'REILLY: In the northern part of the state and central, they say Missouri.

GLENN: So why do you alternate? Why don't you just pick one?

O'REILLY: Because I want the whole state to come see us, Beck! That's why!

GLENN: Like that's going to be it! Like they're going to go, I wasn't going to buy tickets but he said Missoura.

O'REILLY: Yeah, and he said it the right way. So all the southern Missouri people come up, Missoura people come up and then the northern people get theirs, too!

GLENN: All right. You can get the tickets at —


GLENN: May I have —

O'REILLY: Again, sure.

GLENN: Could I get a word in edge wise?

O'REILLY: Come on, Beck, you've been bloviating on your show for two hours. You're exhausted. Go ahead.

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly, thank you for being on the program. We'll talk to you tomorrow, my friend.

O'REILLY: All right.

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

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.
