GLENN: Jon Huntsman, Sr. is a guy who is teaching me how to be charitable. That was our deal, Jon, when we first met. Teach me how to be charitable. He is a guy who grew up dirt poor, had one shirt when he was growing up, lived in a house that they had to split with another family and they put cardboard walls up in between the two families. Dirt, dirt poor. And now is — he's the guy who invented the egg carton. I didn't — egg cartons one of those things you are like, we didn't always have egg cartons? And he is the styrofoam cup and plastic fork and plate and spoon and I mean, he's an amazing guy, and he is going to die broke because he's giving his billions away, and he has been kind enough to let us use the Huntsman Cancer Institute which has one of the nicest restaurants in the city in it because as a survivor of cancer, he knew he didn't want to eat the Jell O and the really bad food at 3:00 in the morning, he wanted to have a good meal. So he brought some of the best chefs up into this cancer institute so he could cook for them, and he's got a restaurant up there. So we have — he's been gracious enough to let us have that for a fundraiser tonight for 8/28. And then he calls me yesterday. He's the guy I talked to yesterday that I told you about. He called me yesterday and said, Glenn, I want to, I want to give you a check for $50,000. I'm not going to be able to make it to the fundraiser, and I just wanted to give you $50,000 for 8/28. I am — I want you to know I asked if the audience would match that $50,000.

Today at, I will match both his $50,000 and the audience's $50,000 so we can turn his $50,000 into $200,000, and the proceeds are going to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, an amazing group. But let me introduce you to Jon Huntsman, the most charitable man I know.

HUNTSMAN: Well, Glenn, you know, every time I'm with you, Glenn, I feel a little bit like a different person because you're so gracious. And the one thing, Glenn, that, you know, I listen to your show, I watch you on Fox and more importantly, Glenn, you and I have — you know, we were fishing last week together, we had our families together. I watched you personally and I watched your children and I watched your beautiful wife. I know you very, very well. And Glenn Beck, you know, you can talk all you want about people like me, we do the very best we can, but you are a charitable man, Glenn. I look at what you've done for cancer, I look at the money you've raised, and not many people know this but out of your back pocket, you gave an enormous amount of money to cancer, and it lifted the hearts and souls of cancer patients, Glenn, and so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your charity and your goodness, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Well, this is the guy who actually said last week that I was a natural sportsman. Right?

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Stu, natural —

PAT: Stu and I don't believe that, Jon.

HUNTSMAN: No, no, no.

PAT: That can't be true.

HUNTSMAN: I'm here — let me tell you this.

PAT: Set the record straight.

HUNTSMAN: First of all, let me talk just a second about the hoary marmot. If you don't know, the hoary marmot, it ran out from this bush and we had just been chasing this moose down the river.

GLENN: Yeah.

HUNTSMAN: And all of a sudden this wild type of creature came —

GLENN: It's like a dog.

HUNTSMAN: Yeah, but it's a light brown.

GLENN: Squirrel thing.

HUNTSMAN: Huge animal.

GLENN: It's a spooky animal.

HUNTSMAN: Spooky animal. And so Glenn and I both said, there goes a varmint! And, you know, of course it's a marmot. And the thing about it, Glenn, I found out since then was what we saw was a hoary marmot.

GLENN: Right.

HUNTSMAN: But we never saw the yellow bellied marmot.

GLENN: There's a yellow bellied hoary marmot?


GLENN: Or just a hoary

HUNTSMAN: Remember those old western movies, that guy would walk into the saloon and they would say, you yellow bellied varmint?

GLENN: Right.

HUNTSMAN: It really was a yellow bellied marmot and we didn't see one but we saw his cousin.

GLENN: So are the yellow belly are they afraid of people?

HUNTSMAN: I don't know whether they are. I think they all got shot in the early West in the saloon.

GLENN: I'm not sure.

HUNTSMAN: But anyway, we had a great time and there is such a thing as a hoary marmot.

GLENN: And I'm fishing and Jon says to me for the first time in my life, a man says to me, you are a natural sportsman. And I said, yes, I am. Yes, I am.

HUNTSMAN: Not only that, Glenn, but our guide looked at you and here was — here's Glenn Beck, folks. I've got to paint this picture because we're on this beautiful river in Idaho, moose running along the side, hoary marmots on the other side, coyotes running up and down.

GLENN: It's nice, isn't it, Pat?

HUNTSMAN: And there's Glenn with one hand. I mean, to all you fly fisherman who use two hands, here's Glenn with one hand hitting the dry fly. It's not a wet. It's a dry, which is very difficult to maneuver in a wind, we had a light wind. And there he was right along the grass, right along the shore. There he was cast after cast after cast.

GLENN: Natural.

HUNTSMAN: Natural.

PAT: Have you ever seen him throw a ball, Jon? Have you ever seen him throw a baseball, football, basketball?

GLENN: Hey, I have to tell you this story. This is my favorite story, me not being a sportsman is my 5 year old son Raphe, we go out to play catch with the ball. My 5 year old son, he's — we're, actually we're not playing catch. I'm throwing — I'm pitching it so he can hit it with a baseball bat. I pitch like three times. He just puts the bat down on the ground and says, Dad, you are really not good at this.

HUNTSMAN: No, no, but Glenn's turned over an entire new life, an entire new leaf, Glenn.

GLENN: Yes, yes. So anyway, well, Jon, thank you so much for your donation and thank you —

HUNTSMAN: Glenn, here's a check for $50,000, Glenn.

PAT: Oh, wow.

HUNTSMAN: I am so honored. Let me just say one word. You know, honoring, Restoring Honor in America and this Special Operations Warriors Fund, I had the privilege to serve in the United States Navy as a gunnery officer. We took the first troops into Southeast Asia. In 1961 I took 1100 Marines on a ship and we dropped them off and, you know, some of them didn't return. This was in the early days of the war and as it cranked up and cranked up, those of us who served in that theater and served in the Pacific. You know, we have a great affection for these young men and women who are the sons and daughters of these special operations forces in the army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, and what a great, wonderful thing you are doing, Glenn. 8/28 and the restoring of honor to America. No one else in America has done this but you, Glenn Beck, and I salute you and we really commend you for it.

GLENN: I have to tell you, these guys, who's the — what was the sergeant's name, Eddie that was on this week with us? Here's a guy, these warriors are all exactly the same. Here's a guy who had, what was it, Pat, a rocket went off?

PAT: Rocket propelled grenade hit him in both his arms.

GLENN: Blew both hands off. So here's a guy that has no hands left and we're talking to him and he has the hooks for hands, and he's like, "You know, I just want to go back."

PAT: He wanted to go back.

GLENN: "I just want to go back." I mean, he went back. It didn't end his service. He taught hand to hand combat after that with no hands.

HUNTSMAN: Just incredible.

PAT: Amazing.

GLENN: These guys are amazing. Hunts they are amazing. And two weeks ago, Glenn, I had the privilege, and Pat, to be at the United States naval academy and there one of my sons was just inducted, sworn in as a new midshipman going through Plebe Summer and we just found out this week that another grandson has been admitted for next year to the U.S. Naval Academy, but these kids want to be SEALs. They have been training their life so they can go out and, you know, it's such an honor to be a grandfather to these young warriors, the young men and women who want to grow up, serve their country and be SEALs and to do what you are honoring these special operations people for doing, Glenn.

GLENN: Jon Huntsman, what a pleasure.

HUNTSMAN: One of my dearest friends in all my life, Glenn Beck. Thanks, dear friend.

GLENN: That means a lot, thank you.

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."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
