Glenn and the King of cable


Pre-order Bold & Fresh Tour 2010 DVD


It's Bold! It's Fresh! It's Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck on stage together. Need we say anything more?

GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. A guy who has quite honestly been one of the most genuine and most helpful I think out of everyone in my television career has been Bill O'Reilly, and he has been there from the beginning and he has given me a comfortable space -- he disagrees with me on an awful lot, but he has given me a comfortable space to be able to answer some of the charges of my critics and also, you know, try to convince him that there are communists in the country and inflation is coming. And when he is knocking at the, you know, the fallout shelter door wanting some crackers, I'll say, you know what, Bill, go away, little pig, little pig. He is on the phone with me now and he has --

O'REILLY: So that's how you are going to treat your friends, huh, Beck?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, you had the opportunity.

O'REILLY: No mercy, huh?

GLENN: No, you had the opportunity. I may electrify the door. I may -- hey, step on that, kind of that wet doormat there, the no-spin zone and then touch the door, will you, Bill? That's what it will be.

O'REILLY: So you'll have a no-spin zone doormat.

GLENN: Yes, sir.

O'REILLY: But you won't let the purveyor of the no-spin zone in?

GLENN: I don't think so.

O'REILLY: So now the latest on your program is that you want people to sell off all their stuff, right?

GLENN: No, just half their stuff.

O'REILLY: I'm having a big yard sail coming up now.

GLENN: I think you're joking.

O'REILLY: Of course I'm joking. But you're not.

GLENN: No, I'm not.

O'REILLY: That's what I love about you.

GLENN: No, I'm not. I don't think so. No, no, here's what I am saying, Bill. I'm not saying sell off half your stuff. I'm selling a great deal of my stuff just because the stuff that I have, my wife and I were walking around and we're like, this is just ridiculous. We have all this stuff, we don't need all this stuff, let's get rid of it. And we're going to give it to charity.

O'REILLY: That's good. It's more of a utilitarian thing.

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: It's not the communists are coming, we don't want to be weighed down? We want to be able to move fast?

GLENN: ... sure, I'll say... no, it's not that at all. The other part of it is I'm suggesting to people that they sell off the stuff that they have that they don't ever use and use that money to, you know, either pay down their debt or have an extra bit of cash. Or buy some food.

O'REILLY: Well, that's good. I makes economic sense.

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: And then buy bullion and then bury it in the backyard with a treasure map.

GLENN: I would start with chicken bouillon before --

O'REILLY: You know, Beck, you got a big win on Saturday with the Saturday Night Live deal. I saw you on Fox and Friends trumpeting. Of course, we had it on the Factor last night. But they actually took your side in mocking President Obama.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

O'REILLY: That was big.

GLENN: I mean, that's unbelievable. Some people started e-mailing me and they're like, Glenn, you're on Saturday Night Live. I'm like, I know, I know.

O'REILLY: Mocking you. But it was earmuffs to hell after that happened. But it just shows you how far and fast Barack Obama's falling when the Saturday Night Live wise guys are now saying, you know, we've got to mock him.

GLENN: Well, you've got the whole world. I mean --

O'REILLY: Well, the worst was -- the worst was Angela Merkel yelling at him. When that happens, that's like Mrs. Cleaver, June Cleaver. That's like her yelling at you. When you've reached that, when Potsie and Ritchie Cunningham's mom is yelling at you, you know things are bad.

GLENN: One-term president?

O'REILLY: Yes, I think so.

GLENN: By choice?

O'REILLY: No.

GLENN: I think so.

O'REILLY: He will run again. Axelrod's already trying to set it up. But as I said last night on the Factor, if you underestimate him, you're crazy because he is --

GLENN: He took the Clintons out.

O'REILLY: He did take the Clintons out and this guy -- they have a machine and the machine is angry and these people are going to come back and they are starting today. John Podesta and the Center for progress, you know, all of this nuts, nutty stuff. But Americans have now turned, okay? They've turned against him. Now, can they turn back? Yes. If the economy gets better. But, you know, the odds of the economy accelerating that quickly in a year, because that's basically what it's going to be now. The presidential race starts in February '11 is when these pennants are going to be running all around.

GLENN: That's a nightmare.

O'REILLY: But far more importantly than any of this is the Bold Fresh DVD that we're announcing jointly on your fine program today.

GLENN: Is that what you're doing here?

O'REILLY: Yeah, that's what I'm doing here.

GLENN: I wondered. I wondered why you were slumming it. You're like, I'll troll, I'll troll with the bums today.

O'REILLY: No, I just want to be very clear with the audience we've gotten literally hundreds of e-mails saying, look, we can't get to the Beck/O'Reilly Bold Fresh shows in person.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: Because we're not in your town or whatever; so do you have a DVD. Yes, we do. Best stocking stuffer gift of all time.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: O'Reilly/Beck, two hours of Bold Fresh on stage.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: You've got to have it. You can go to Beck's website, BillOReilly.com. Amazon I guess is going to have it, right?

GLENN: I don't pay attention.

O'REILLY: You know, I think Amazon is going to have it. This is the best. People are going to love it. It's very, very funny. And then you can figure out who's funny, O'Reilly or Beck.

GLENN: I will tell you that the last place we went, I heard a lot of people saying, who knew he was funny?

O'REILLY: And they were talking about you.

GLENN: Yeah, they were actually. Had nothing to do with you. I notice that, have you seen the video yet?

O'REILLY: I have. It's very good.

GLENN: Have you seen the -- have you seen the question-and-answer that they did individually with us about each other?

O'REILLY: Yes. It's very funny. I think people are going to really be happy with this. We kept the price down. I think it's $19.95 or something.

GLENN: Yeah. I haven't --

O'REILLY: Look, this is a big win and it's an also "In your face" to all the people who hate us because we're having a good time out there. We're being honest. We're telling folks the way we see it straight.

GLENN: I will tell you that I haven't seen the -- I haven't seen the after interviews which I'm really looking forward to seeing.

O'REILLY: Oh, they're good.

GLENN: Because they ask me questions about you.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: And you questions about me.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: And I answered them 100% seriously.

O'REILLY: Well, I didn't. And so I think you (inaudible) all over the place and so the contrast is going to be great.

GLENN: I was doing sarcasm.

O'REILLY: I want to tell people that we are going to be in New Orleans on December 3. These are the last two shows of 2010, last two Bold Fresh shows. New Orleans Beck and I on Friday, the 3rd of December and then two shows. One is already sold out in Dallas the next day, the 4th of December. So all the people on the Gulf Coast, don't miss this one. This is going to be big and you guys in North Central Texas.

GLENN: I've never been to -- never been to New Orleans in concert. Never done anything in New Orleans before.

O'REILLY: Oh, it's a great town and people down there need their spirits lifted a little bit and we're going to do that. We're going to come in, we're going to give you a great show. So we want everybody to check that out on BoldFreshTour.com.

GLENN: Right. And the video is available, the DVD, Bold Fresh Tour 2010 is available at Amazon and GlennBeck.com and BoldFreshTour.com, everywhere.

O'REILLY: Everywhere. I mean, you are not going to be able to get away from it.

GLENN: You know what's interesting is I'm anxious to see the video to be able to see the transition in you. Because when we first started, you thought almost everything I said was absolutely nuts.

O'REILLY: And that's the way we ended, right? I mean, really --

GLENN: Get off the phone, O'Reilly.

O'REILLY: Look, I want everybody to understand because I still get crazy e-mails, "Why are you making fun of Glenn Beck" and this and that. I have always said that your voice, a guy like you is absolutely necessary.

GLENN: Yeah, to make people like you safer in the world.

O'REILLY: Well, not only that but I like to hear what you have to say so that I can basically --

GLENN: Make fun of me.

O'REILLY: Think about it. Yeah, sometimes. Sometimes I do, but sometimes I don't.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: I mean, I --

GLENN: You've come a long way. You have --

O'REILLY: The fact that you were the driver on ACORN.

GLENN: I don't --

O'REILLY: And that once you got our attention on ACORN, then we sent our investigators down to New Orleans, we the Factor. And then the Beck show and The Factor combined blow them right out of the water, and what happened? Congress defunded them. Why did congress defund them? Because of Beck and O'Reilly.

GLENN: No, you know why? Because they can now hide that under another new organizational name all tied back to Tides and George Soros. But you are not there yet.

O'REILLY: Yes, but we knocked a big, big, concern --

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

O'REILLY: -- right out of the box and now when we fine out, you know, what they are reconstituting, we'll do the same thing.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: But the point of the matter is that you did that. See, you did that. And then when I saw you guys do that, I said, okay, let's pick this up because this has a, you know, a very serious tone to it. Some of the stuff you do is a little kooky but some of it isn't.

GLENN: No, no. No, no.

O'REILLY: You know, I mean --

GLENN: You go ahead and live in that George Soros utopia. You go ahead.

O'REILLY: Look, who was the guy that first brought George Soros to the attention of everyone? Me. Now you are (inaudible) up, but I'm the guy that three years ago who's on this guy's neck.

GLENN: No, I don't -- you're there.

O'REILLY: You have to watch the interview on Cavuto.

GLENN: Bill, here's the -- what did you say?

O'REILLY: You have to watch the interview Soros on Cavuto. Soros went on Cavuto, I guess it was about a year, year and a half ago. He's like O'Reilly, this O'Reilly, he's despicable, this O'Reilly. Before he even knew who you were.

GLENN: So then why would you dismiss him now when I --

O'REILLY: I don't dismiss him. I think he's evil.

GLENN: You were on the show and I brought a serious puppet on your show.

O'REILLY: Yeah, the puppet.

GLENN: And you dismiss.

O'REILLY: I should have lionized the puppet.

GLENN: I don't know why you didn't but that's just a game you like to play.

O'REILLY: That's right.

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly, we'll talk to you again, my friend. We're going to be in New Orleans and Dallas and that is early December. Find out.

O'REILLY: December 3rd and 4th and check out Bold Fresh DVD for Christmas, great.

GLENN: May I just -- you're not in the No spin Zone. Here, I tell you what, step on this wet doormat and touch the door, will you? All right, Bill, thanks a lot.

O'REILLY: All right, Glenn, thanks for having me in. Bye.

GLENN: Yet bet. Bye-bye. Again the DVD, it is really, it's very, very funny. At least I don't know what he has done but this stuff, I tore him apart. I tore him apart. You don't want to miss it. It's available everywhere, GlennBeck.com and where else, wherever fine, fine --

PAT: Hardware stores. I think it's in hardware stores. Payless Shoes I think has a copy.

STU: Entire chain.

PAT: I think they have one copy somewhere, it might be in Poughkeepsie or it could be in, like, Bakersfield, California, I'm not sure. And then it's available, I think it's some 7-11s.

GLENN: I don't think any of this is necessary.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
