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.

O'REILLY: Yeah.

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.

O'REILLY: Yes.

GLENN: Sometimes they are in the computers early.

O'REILLY: Yes.

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?

O'REILLY: Sure.

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 —

O'REILLY: Boldfreshtour.com. Boldfreshtour.com.

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.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
