Glenn Beck: Ted Nugent Interview




Support Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids

GLENN: Outrageous rocker, gun aficionado, hunter and all around good guy Ted Nugent. Welcome to the program, Ted. How are you?

NUGENT: Happy springtime, Glenn.

GLENN: Hey, I had to tell you I had somebody, it was a week ago tonight, somebody got onto the property here in my house, which is not really a good idea to do at, like, 2:00 in the morning.

NUGENT: Whoops.

GLENN: And they got onto the property of the house and, you know, there are signs posted all around the house, guard dog, weapons, just don't come in. And so they got on and they were doing some stuff just like a stupid idiot and I get up and I come down the house because I'm not sure if somebody's in the house now and, you know, I've got the big German Shepherd and I come down the house with the bandoliers across -- I mean, I had a shotgun and all of the --

NUGENT: Do you play bass guitar, Glenn? I'll hire you tomorrow.

GLENN: I mean, it was fantastic. I actually thought of you. I said, I either feel like Rambo or Ted Nugent. I'm not sure which, I'm not sure which. And you know what I was thinking was how stupid it is -- because it turns out, I think, that it was just some teenagers, how -- do you remember, Ted, when we were growing up, you know, you could go do stupid stuff. You can go TP somebody's house, et cetera, et cetera. I don't think you can do that anymore. You know, you have to know who the people are. You go do something stupid in somebody's yard or somebody's house in the middle of the night, you're liable to get yourself killed.

NUGENT: Well, yeah, there's a number of dynamics at play here. You're correct when we were young there was a lot of harmless maneuvering going on by the youth of America. We would visit people and we would soap windows and we would go up to people's houses and most of it was absolutely noncriminal. But today I think actually it might be a better situation today considering that we are in a war on terror and that, you know, vandalism and crime and American-on-American crime is one of the biggest heartbreakers in the world and I'd rather that a signal was sent out, don't tread on pee would be the rule of the day. If you want to come by the house, you want to have a good time, you might announce it and you might be our friends. If not, beware.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. So let me just ask you this. Have you ever had anybody break into your house?

NUGENT: Yeah, we did actually. We had our barn broken into last year. Here's a little bit of irony for you. It was as I was about to speak at the NRA convention, someone breaking into my Michigan barn. But my good friends at the Michigan state police caught the rascals and they are currently in a cage where they belong.

GLENN: What happened?

NUGENT: My caretaker and my son were able to give some information along with the state police. Some punk, some meth-inspired punks, God, who would have thought that, broke in and stole some of our ATVs and some of our Kamp for Kids charity equipment. We have some sporting goods here that we store for our children's camp and they did get caught and they were lifelong criminals, a little of that recidivism reminder in play. And they did catch them and they put them away now. We've never been broken into while we were at home. In fact, if you would like to put the ultimate warning sign on your property, Glenn, you can have my permission to put "Ted Nugent lives here" on the sides of your property. I promise you security from hereon out.

GLENN: I bet. I bet. You're going out to take the Clark family, which is this amazing family. Have you spent much time talking to them yet?

NUGENT: Yes, I have. I've been communicating with Ruth and Lael, one of the sons, and with the Knowlton family out there in Texas at the Laguna Vista Ranch and just a beautiful place. Jed Knowlton and his family have a huge family, just loaded with wildlife and a wonderful lodge and we're setting stuff up for the kids' wheelchairs this fall, and I promise you, Glenn, and I do want to make sure you look at that invitation that I send you regularly because you've got to witness the sheer joy, the spirituality of a family in that primal setting where they get out in nature not as a spectator but as a participant and it's going to be a magic time and I'm honored to be a part of this.

GLENN: Well, here's the whole family in wheelchairs and they have muscular dystrophy and the boys just gave up hunting because they now go into the woods and take into the back of a truck but they don't have the strength anymore to squeeze the trigger.

NUGENT: I promise you they are going to have the time of their lives. We started CPR Kamp for Kids and along with Freedom's Angels, it's a military charity, we take a lot of kids that are limited to wheelchairs and worse and a lot of military heroes with no arms and no legs, no face but they got the spirit, they got the attitude. They certainly have the vision. And they get out there in a hunting blind, we got these double bull blinds that can be propped up any place and we're able to literally wheel our blood brothers out there and just throw a blind over them. They have the time of their life and it's very, very moving because this is really what they want. And here's a dynamic, Glenn. Not just the Clark family and people around the country but when a little boy, little girl contacts my office as they are facing imminent death in a terminal illness situation, they always want to go hunting. They want to get a hold of Uncle Ted and go hunting with Uncle Ted. These are little 6, 7, 8-year-old boys and girls who know they are not going to see next year and something inside them wants to go hunting. They can do a lot. A lot of them go to Disney World, a lot of them go to concerts but most of them want to go hunting. There's something very primal, very spiritual that even a young person understands, facing that enormous emotion of the end that drives them into the outdoors. We call it the spirit of the wild and it is powerful medicine.

GLENN: Do you know Sergeant Greg Stube?

NUGENT: Say that again?

GLENN: Do you know Sergeant Greg Stube?

NUGENT: I don't know the name, no.

GLENN: He is a guy, special forces 19 years, lost 70% of his intestines over in Afghanistan, an amazing man. First time I met him, I was at the NRA convention and he spoke, and I have to tell you, there was not a dry eye in the house and his wife is just as amazing as he is. But he told me, he said it was hunters that actually healed me. He said, every time I would hear a gun go off or an explosion or car backfire, he said, I freaked out. He said, going out hunting and having the positive reinforcement again of holding a gun in your hand and hearing that sound and being outside in the, you know, in the forest and, you know, one with the Earth, he said, it healed me.

NUGENT: Absolutely. And the definitiveness. There's an absolute surety to the hands-on conservation lifestyle of hunting, fishing and trapping where you know you're going to consume today. We're all going to consume today but it touches the soul to actually consume from the life. When you plant a tree and then get to heat from it years later, I promise you, Glenn, the heat's warmer. When you kill that deer by dedicating yourself to be the reasoning predator that we have all in our soul, when you kill that deer, it is a gift from God and it's a moving moment that you know you would never scrape leftovers into the trash because you had to go to the swamp early. You had to get that deer. You had to practice your heart and soul to being the best shot and the best marksman, the best archer, the best predator you can. And then you have to see that deer's eyes and you grasp it and you gut it and you skin it and you drag it back. It's sacred, Glenn.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second. Hold on, Ted. Is there any reason that we don't have an affiliate in New York after this last break? Is there a single reason?

NUGENT: I promise you New York is loaded with hunters.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, I know. Ted, always great to talk to you, sir. We'll talk to you again.

NUGENT: God's speed, Glenn.

GLENN: Bye-bye.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

"We live in the era of woke religion," says Stu.

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming 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, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...
