Poll: Is Glenn emotionally stable?



Glenn: So, that's going on and then we get into the break and Dan says, did you hear the Imus audio? Play the Imus audio.

Voice: He seems like a lovely guy, Glenn Beck. But he seems he just seems to me and I'm just a casual observer like he's ready to kill himself.

Glenn: Please stop, stop. What does that mean?

Stu: What it means is that Imus has achieved the most accurate moment of broadcast journalism in the last

Glenn: It doesn't seem like I'm going to kill myself.

Stu: You always seem like you're going to kill yourself.

Glenn: There's other times that do I seem like I'm going to kill myself now?

Stu: I certainly wouldn't put it past you. At any moment, you will

Glenn: That's not true. And listen to the worth part of it. Michael Graham comes back.

Voice: Which God forbid he would do.

Voice: I would move away from that part of the conversation for reasons I'll tell you later, but

Glenn: What? What does that mean? Does Michael Graham have I been trying to hang myself in my garage lately? I mean, what does that mean?

Stu: You've talked about trying to kill your wanting to kill yourself a lot of times on this program.

 



Beck from the Dead - Glenn's now famous YouTube video from January of 2008...

Glenn: That's a cry for help. That's not actually trying to kill yourself.

Stu: You've said wait a minute. You just had a YouTube video out in which you were saying because of your butt injury

Glenn: That was drug induced.

Stu: Let me

Glenn: Listen, what does he say Michael Graham just made it sound like, I've got information. I've just cut him down on the way here. I just backed his car out of the garage.

Stu: The YouTube happened in January

Glenn: I just gave him mouth to mouth 10 minutes ago. Don, I'll talk to you about this off the air.

Stu: You said you were willing to kill yourself if you had the opportunity, because of your butt surgery.

Glenn: I was in the hospital at the time. They had me all doped up. I didn't know what I was doing.

Stu: Glenn.

Glenn: What?

Stu: Let me tell you something about my life. I think it's an interested biographical point. I have never wanted to kill myself. You act like the fact that it was only four months away like it's this great thing. Most people

Glenn: I'm four months away from my last suicide bout and I

Stu: Sarah, any suicide attempts recently, anything? Dan?

Dan: No, quote, unquote, bouts with suicide.

Stu: No. Do you understand that

Glenn: I've only had two.

Stu: And you know do you know what's amazing here?

Glenn: Only two and they're very far apart from each other. The last one was in the 1980's.

Stu: No. The last one was in January.

Glenn: Well, not the last last one but the last one. The first one was back in the Eighties.

Stu: But think about this. The last one, it was in the Eighties, but also if you're looking back over this last one, that one is so far away it's like the last one the first one you bring up is in January. The last one was in January.

Stu: I have none, no attempts, no thinking bit. I don't think about it.

Glenn: I don't think it's right if I am to say that.

Stu: Let's put it this way: If this does not in one quick burst to prove how Don Imus has had the lengthy career he has and is going to the broadcasting hall of fame and all of his achievements, just as a casual observer picks that up. He's fully analyzed your life perfectly.

Glenn: What else does he say, Dan?

Voice: I've seen him occasionally, not for any length of time, really, but

Glenn: What does that mean?

Voice: He seems like he's emotionally troubled.

Glenn: That is not true!

Stu: That is on your business card.

Glenn: It's not. I'm not emotionally troubled. I'm not emotionally troubled.

Stu: It says Glenn Beck TV host emotionally troubled.

Glenn: I'm not emotionally troubled.

Stu: Yes, you are.

Glenn: I am, but not really. I mean, I'm kind of emotionally troubled.

Stu: And this one's

Glenn: I know. I'm deeply emotionally troubled, but I'm working through it.

Stu: Dead serious.

Glenn: What?

Stu: Like you couldn't have a sentence describing you that would not include the words "emotionally troubled." Like, that is, like your defining characteristic. I mean that sincerely. You're a good guy you're just emotionally troubled.

Glenn: I think I'm emotionally more healthy than most people. (Quack, quack). Did anybody else hear that duck?

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
