Glenn Beck: 'Sweetie'

Barack Obama’s Pitch in Kentucky

GLENN: To complain about stuff. So let me complain, let me complain about Mr. Barack Obama. I find it absolutely amazing that Barack Obama is going after the evangelicals in Kentucky with a poster that says "Faith, hope, change, Barack Obama for President." And then it says a quote from him: "My faith teaches me that I can sit in church and pray all I want, but I won't be fulfilling God's will unless I go out and do the Lord's work, Barack Obama." Can you imagine if a conservative would have said that? Can you imagine if they would have had Mitt Romney behind a pulpit with a cross behind him and he said that? They would have crucified the guy no that's probably they would have crucified the guy! I can't believe the hypocrisy. And then what are people talking about on television? The sweetie comment? You know the sweetie comment? The sweetie comment, he recalled a reporter sweetie, "Hey, listen, sweetie." That's what you get up in arms about, the sweetie comment? That's really, that's it? He called what was it he related a pregnancy to, I believe a disease in his daughter? What was that quote?

STU: Punish her with a baby. I don't want to punish her with a baby. I love that quote.

GLENN: I'm going to punish her with a baby? I'm going to punish her with a baby. Right, right. That's it. He's talking about going and having a sit down and a sandwich with a guy who says that Israel will soon be annihilated and vaporized, let's have a sandwich but you're worried about him calling a woman reporter sweetie.

STU: On the sweetie thing, Glenn, though, don't you love when people from the left get caught in this world they've created where sweetie, which is a nice, a harmless thing where you're trying to be nice to someone, yet you get hammered for it because it's not the appropriate word for this week. I love when they get caught in their own net.

GLENN: You know what? I'm calling everybody on this program sweetie.

STU: I like that.

GLENN: I'm calling everybody who calls in fact, take Line 3.

Sweetheart, sweetie, how are you?

CALLER: Hello?

GLENN: Sweetie, how are you?

CALLER: Yes? Yes? Yes, Glenn (in high pitched voice).

Obama's 'Sweetie' Comment

GLENN: How are you doing, Mike?

CALLER: Good, how are you doing?

GLENN: Good. Welcome to Closed Line Friday. What's up?

CALLER: Not much. Can I get a little bit of conspiracy train cuckoo noise?

GLENN: You got that one, Dan?

STU: Very don't have that one in a while. We're going to have to search for that one.

GLENN: Who has removed the paranoia express sound effect?

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: Who has taken that off? All aboard? Paranoia express, go ahead, Mike.

CALLER: No, I just had a I just wanted you'll have to excuse me. I'm extremely nervous.

GLENN: That's all right, sweetheart, relax.

CALLER: Thank you. I just believe that the Democrats are actually systematically trying to destroy the free market and trying to, you know, destroy capitalism so that they can begin to federalize industry.





GLENN: What gives you that Mike, what makes you believe that these really well educated, most of them attorneys that went to, you know, institutions of higher learning like Berkeley would be trying to destroy the capitalist system?

CALLER: Because I believe they think they're so smart that they're better equipped to manage our lives than we are. They don't think it's fair that corporations get to make this money. They don't think that it's fair that they get to allocated it as they see fit and they think that they're better qualified to do so.

GLENN: What evidence do you have that shows that those members in government believe that they can make decisions for you?

CALLER: They outlawed transfat, I can't fly through my windshield if I want to, I have to wear a seat belt. I mean, the most inalienable right to a human being is to be able to work and to reap the benefits of that work. But I have an oppressive government that stands over top of me with their hand out demanding by police force that I give them the product of my hard labor every time I turn around. I mean, there's a thousand different taxes. We have a tax code that's how many pages? 9,000 something odd pages long. I mean, it's getting to the point now it's ridiculous. Almost to the point where I want to dispel the notion where we're actually a free society. We live in a society where they confiscate 15% of my income throughout the course of my life which I'm 25, I'm to the going to get but yet I don't have the option to look at them and say I don't want your retirement plan, I want to save for my own retirement. If I took 15% of my income and put it in a Roth IRA, I would retire a millionaire throughout the course of my life. But I can't do that. If I try to do that, they will come to my house with guns and confiscate my property and auction it off.

GLENN: Mike.

CALLER: Uh huh?

GLENN: Why do you hate poor people so much?

CALLER: I don't hate poor people. That's the point. I believe that the poor people can make it. I mean, my father was a criminal. All his brothers were criminal. I was raised by a single mother. I'm a kid that used to play Russian roulette. I got arrested for armed robbery. You know what I mean? I've had a very checkered past. I've had all the ingredients for failure that all these other people have had. I've got a sixth grade education and I'm making about $60,000 a year running a small business that, you know, hopefully I plan on doubling if the Government doesn't, you know, put their foot on my throat and choke me out.

GLENN: So what you're saying, if I may, you hate women less than you hate African Americans?

CALLER: No, not at all. I believe in America. I believe in the concept of personal responsibility. I believe that African Americans as well as women are just as capable of accomplishing as much as, dare I say it, a white male.

GLENN: So how much money are you taking from Exxon or oil companies?

CALLER: Oh, billions, yeah. They told me to call. I'm actually on their payroll.

GLENN: Good. Well, at least we finally got to the truth. Thanks, Mike, I appreciate it. Great call.

CALLER: All right.


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."

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:
