Glenn vs. Bill 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: Bring Mr. O'Reilly on the phone, will you? Oh. He's not there? He missed his chance. I did have him scheduled. He was going to be on, but he's missed his chance.

STU: So, you're just going to blow him off now?

GLENN: I'm going to blow him off until he calls. And, you know, Bill O'Reilly has you know, Bill O'Reilly is really one of the biggest supporters I can't say this now that he's on. He's an okay guy. Let me go to Bill O'Reilly. Hey, Bill.

O'REILLY: Now, what are you telling me? I'm the biggest supporter of what, Beck?

GLENN: Of communist.

O' REILLY: I'm a communist guy now, me.

GLENN: Well, no. You're not a communist guy. You just won't admit there's communists in and around that are trying to destroy our country.

O'REILLY: Communists?

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: All right.

GLENN: Communists.

O'REILLY: Yeah. No. They're not real high on the Al Qaeda's are higher on my list than the communists.

GLENN: They're working together, Bill. They're working together.

O'REILLY: You're going to take care of them, Beck. I don't have to worry about that.

GLENN: May I show you may I show you this weekend on stage the links between the jihadists and the communists here in America?

O'REILLY: That's interesting. Now, I'm absolutely fascinated to hear that. Columbus Ohio on Friday and St. Louis on Saturday night

GLENN: Don't tease me.

O'REILLY: you're going to show me and the audience the link between

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: American communists and Al Qaeda?

GLENN: Do not tease me. Don't say it like, Oh, I'll be interested in that and then I show it to you

O'REILLY: No. I'm very sincere. You know me.

GLENN: I do. That's why I'm saying don't tease me like this, Bill, because you are you are the most unpredictable guy ever because I will show you I'll lay out a case and you'll be, like, Yeah. I don't know. So, did you see the body language expert last night?

O'REILLY: Well, the body language expert, I have her now analyzing news clips, news reels of Woodrow Wilson.

GLENN: Do you?

O'REILLY: You know, now that you made him more famous than Michael Jackson.

GLENN: Well

O'REILLY: I've got to get the body language expert on Woodrow Wilson to find out if he was as bad as you say he was.

GLENN: Come on, man. You are a historian. You were a history teacher.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: Is your book out yet about I don't know what it was Lincoln or Taft or

O'REILLY: No. That's going to be out down the road. You're the guy with the new book. It's got birds on the cover of this book.

GLENN: I know. And it scares you. The birds scares you. Have you finished it yet?

O'REILLY: I'm running through it.

GLENN: No, you're not.

O'REILLY: I'm reading it slowly because there's so much that you have to say in this book, Beck, it's amazing.

GLENN: Bill, these are the answers I gave you on your book. I don't buy them. I invented those kind of answers.

O'REILLY: (Inaudible.) I like the book. I told you that on TV. It's interesting. I mean, that's all I require of a book is to be interesting. I don't want to be bored when I'm reading it.

GLENN: All right. You're breaking

O'REILLY: This one moves along pretty well.

GLENN: You're breaking up a little bit. Are you can you have the chopper pilot bring the altitude down just a little bit so you can get closer to

O'REILLY: We'll lower the chopper. Can you hear me better?

GLENN: I can hear you now.

O'REILLY: We narrowly averted some communists in another helicopter, but we're safe now.

GLENN: Why did you avert them? Why did you

O'REILLY: Because I didn't want a midair collision with these pinkos.

GLENN: Why don't you take them out? So, I'm going to be with you in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday which is, you know, two days of you being with me and me being with you. I don't know if that's a good idea.

O'REILLY: Well, we have, you know, separate we have curtains in the jet to separate my crew from your crew.

GLENN: Yeah. That's called first class cabin and coach.

O'REILLY: But your blackboard, I want everyone to know, flies first class.

GLENN: With you.

O'REILLY: The blackboard is in first class and it is constantly attended to. No moisture can ever get on that blackboard.

GLENN: The chalk is always in first class and I, like, open up the curtain in between and the caulk is always sitting next to Bill and the chalk is, like, Can't you keep the riffraff out of here? Tell him to use the bathroom in the back.

O'REILLY: I'm the guardian of that blackboard and chalk. I want to know that link between the American communism. Now, are you going to shout out Van Jones? Is he one of your guys here that's the Al Qaeda sympathizer or something?

GLENN: I'll tell you on stage, Bill.

O'REILLY: This is good. I like this promo because people on the fence about coming to see O'Reilly and Beck, they know they're going to get something new. I don't know what's coming. I'm going to have to react, be nimble, kick on my feet.

GLENN: No, you won't. You won't even listen to me. You won't even listen to me. You won't. You won't. I hear you all the time. The audience is against you, Bill. The audience is against you. They're praying for you every night. They're on their knees praying for you, please, when will Bill O'Reilly wake up to this?

O'REILLY: I had a letter from a lady yesterday that I read on the air that actually said that.

GLENN: Really? Are you on the air

O'REILLY: And I got ballooned for not agreeing with everything Glenn Beck says, everything. I can never dissent. That sounds like communism to me.

GLENN: Wow. I'm not saying that you can't dissent. I'm just expecting so much more because you are a highly intelligent, trained professional that someday may have your own TV show or something.

O'REILLY: Right. But I need I always go where the facts take me. Sometimes you take the facts and extrapolate a little, which you have every right to do, by the way.

GLENN: Right. Isn't that wouldn't that be called

O'REILLY: But I kind of stay in the fact zone. (Inaudible.) communists and I'll go get them.

GLENN: I do, as well. I stay in the fact zone, as well. I just happen to look at several data points and then say what does this picture tell us? Isn't that what

O'REILLY: Right. If you're extrapolating from the facts a big picture philosophy that a lot of people agree with. You're obviously successful on radio and television. Forbes magazine says you're the richest guy in the country except for George Soros or something, right? Didn't I read that somewhere?

GLENN: I think we could probably compare pay checks and you would win.

O'REILLY: Well, but that's called political justice.

GLENN: Okay. All right. So, tomorrow no. Is it is today Thursday? Yeah.

O'REILLY: Yes. Tomorrow. Columbus Ohio, tomorrow. That's how quick this week has gone. We'll be there and you can get tickets on boldfreshtour.com and we'll be in St. Louis on the 19th. Now, if you don't have a gift for dad, I mean, this is the best gift ever.

GLENN: It's the second best. I think The Overton Window is probably the best.

O'REILLY: But do you what I also tell people, Beck? This is very important. If you don't like Dad and Dad doesn't like you and me, then you get him tickets to this tour.

GLENN: That's fantastic. That's fantastic.

O'REILLY: A little payback.

GLENN: That's fantastic. All right. So, we're in we're in Columbus tomorrow night and then in St. Louis the Saturday night and it is a great, great show and you really don't ever know what is going to happen. Have you ever Bill, let me ask you this: Have you ever thought in this because I've enjoyed them, but once in awhile you've made my you've raised my blood pressure a bit. Has there been a show yet that you have thought, I might clock this guy?

O'REILLY: No.

GLENN: No?

O'REILLY: No. I like you, Beck. Whatever you do is fine with me. I'm not one of these people who if you disagree with me, I don't like you.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: I like you as a person, which is a character flaw of mine. Okay? So, there's some blind spot in my persona that has brought me to this conclusion.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: But I don't care what you say in the sense that it doesn't agree with my philosophy. It doesn't really matter. I mean, you have your opinion. You're entitled to it. A lot of people agree with you. I agree with a lot of what you say, not everything, but that's why the show is so fun.

GLENN: Let me ask you this, Bill. Let me play somebody one of these clowns from MSNBC that after the President's speech, he said this. Play the what is it? cut 303, please. He said this.

VOICE: When does the President become a dictator on this? When does the President start really calling the shots and saying, This is the number, this is what you're going to pay, we're not going to let you off the hook?

GLENN: When does the President become a dictator on this? And he's not the only one that's just saying, do it. You have a senator play the play the cut from the senator. When asked, well, what legal right does he have to do these things, to demand these things, here is I don't remember which senator he is, one of the one of the senators. Do you have it? I think it's 389, I think. Hold on just a second.

VOICE: A specific question for you on what legal basis can the government demand that BP set aside this money? What's the specific legal authority for this?

VOICE: Well, first of all, if we have to pass a statute to create that authority, we will.

GLENN: Okay. Then you have commentators on CNBC saying this guy is setting up a separate legal system outside of the framework of the Constitution. Does this concern you at all that the left is actually they don't have a problem with a dictatorship, as long as it is their, you know, legal system

O'REILLY: No doubt that that's at this point critical on the left. Okay? But in this case I think that you have to find a way to make BP pony up money. So, I mean, obviously I'm a Constitutionalist and I want the law to be obeyed, but you have to find a way. Now, if I were Obama, I would be looking in camera and say, look, I'm not a dictator, I'm not trying to tell anybody anything but I am going to strong arm these people to make them pay damages to everybody who is suffering. I, President Obama, am going to strong arm BP. If I've got to do it economically, I'm going to do it economically. If I can find a legal loophole, I'm going to do it. They're responsible. They've got to pony up. So, I would be honest with about it; and I think that's the way to handle it. Do you disagree?

GLENN: Yeah. I don't want to find legal loopholes or play any games. I want to apply justice and justice would demand that they do pay for their mistakes and I'm not

O'REILLY: That's right.

GLENN: I'm not going to play any games with them. They're not going to get any special favors, but I'm also not going to I'm not going to skirt around the law or the Constitution.

O'REILLY: Well, wait a minute, Beck. You can find creative ways to make people do the right thing.

GLENN: That's called nudge.

O'REILLY: That's what's in play here. I have no problem with BP having to pony up 20 billion and probably more.

GLENN: Neither do I. They should have to may for their damages.

O'REILLY: What?

GLENN: Yes. They've

O'REILLY: They've got to pony it up. They've got to pay for the cleanup and they can't weasel out of it. If Obama can find a way to make them do it, which apparently has, because they estimated the money, more power to them.

GLENN: That's exactly right.

O'REILLY: In my world I understand the world of theory and I understand, you know, the left is hypocritical. They say, Okay. We want our guy to be the dictator but don't you do anything unilaterally if you're a conservative. Okay. We all got that. We all have, but there are things like executive orders in this country that give the President the power to right wrongs and he's got to use that and I think he did.

GLENN: See, this is the kind of thing we're out of time now, but this is the kind of thing that I'll be responding to in Columbus.

O'REILLY: This is a good debate point for Friday and Saturday night. This is a really excellent one.

GLENN: Oh, yes. I might have to wear my czar uniform for that debate.

O'REILLY: I want to see the little Mao hat on you with the star in the middle of it. That's what I want to see.

GLENN: Well, if I become the dictator, I may make you wear it. All right. It is Friday in Columbus, Ohio, and Saturday in St. Louis. Great for father's day. Pick up the tickets now. You can find them at GlennBecktours.com or boldfreshtour.com. Check it out. This weekend only in Columbus and St. Louis. Grab your tickets now.

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."
