Glenn Beck: Free wine

RELATED STORY


Come look at this house, get a bottle of wine

GLENN: I've got so many things that I can't wait to share with you. Gee, where do I start? The judge that has banned the use of the word "Rape" at a rape trial, got that one. That one's really good. I love this one. The threat of world AIDS pandemic among heterosexuals is over. Good, we can all stop using those stupid condom things. Oh, that's not going to go well. That's not going to go well. Here's probably my favorite story of the day. This is from USA Today. "Come look at this house and I'll give you a bottle of wine," and I bet they would follow it up with, "And if I give you enough wine, you might sign this nice little paper. Could I just get you to, I just I'm collecting autographs. Do you want here, have another glass of wine. Just sign right here for me. I'm an autograph collector." Home sellers are offering freebies in attempt to draw possible buyers. Now, here's where they're doing. Ready? Charlottesville, Virginia. They're getting her name is Barbara Potter Drinkwater never buy a house from Barbara Potter Drinkwater. I'm sorry. She's trying to get other Realtors and potential buyers to see her open houses. She's tempting them with live music. I don't think I'm going to come to an open house if she's got live guitar players, live guitar music. "Hey, honey, what do you want to do tonight?" "I don't know. Barbara Potter Drinkwater's got a nice guitar player playing at the house down the street. What do you say we go have a free glass of wine, maybe kick back, listen to the free guitar music, look at the house that we have no intention of buying because we can't afford the gas that it would take to drive down the end of the street. But free wine, guitar music and Barbara Potter Drinkwater will be there. She's fantastic." What are you doing! Free guitar music! That's definitely not the house that I'd buy. I don't go anywhere near that house. "Open house? Oh, they're going to have..." can you imagine the collection of losers that are showing up there? No, seriously. No, come on. Admit it. Are you going to hear free guitar music at an open house? No. No, you're not. Why? Because you're normal. If you think like, "Friday night, what do you say we kick back, hear some free music." We're sitting in somebody else's house that they are trying to sell. Come on.

The other things that they're offering, $30 bottles of Chardonnay, Godiva chocolates. Oh, you know, life's like a box of chocolates. Live guitar music, vodka tasting. You notice now two out of the last five here have been alcohol involved? Of course. "No, really have some more vodka. The economy's about to turn around. It's going to be great. Have a little vodka. Would you like some more wine? Gas prices, we'll be paying 30 cents before you know it. Want to buy the house?" They are also having cocktail parties. Again no alcohol served there, I'm sure. Cocktail parties? I don't want to go to cocktail parties with people I do know. I want to go around to have a cocktail party maybe we could all break out and we could just bid on the house. Maybe just an auction will break out. A cocktail party? How desperate and friendless must you be to go to a cocktail party thrown by Barbara Potter Drinkwater? She's not the I hate to stick Barbara Potter Drinkwater I'm only using her because of her name because what a stupid name that is, but she's not the only one.

In California if you go see a house listed by Elaine Pinel oh, geez, she'll give you free dog biscuits. Have we really come down to this? Are we those people where we're like, oh, I don't know, honey, I didn't want to go but they're going to give us free dog biscuits"? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Food's so expensive. We might have to eat the dog biscuits ourselves (laughing). I mean, come on! Who's being induced to get in their car and drive to an open house that they don't want to see because they can get free dog biscuits? Shoe shines, they're offering shoe shines. Pardon me, boy, just looking for a shoe shine. Wife's going to take a spin around the house. I thought maybe you could buff my shoes? A shoe shine? This is like something that, this is like out of the Our Gang comedies. This is like I expect, what was, Spunky, Spotty, Sloppy? What was the fat kid's name in Our Gang? Did nobody grow up watching Our Gang? Spunky, Spotty, Spanky no, it wasn't Spanky. No, it was Spanky because I remember Eddie Murphy did Panky, remember? It was Buckwheat and Panky. All right, I don't remember. Yeah, The Little Rascals. I mean, Stu, you didn't watch Little Rascals? Those are the Our Gang comedies.

STU: Yeah, Little Rascals had Spanky and I think that's the one you're talking about, right?

GLENN: Yeah, Our Gang comedy with the little dog with the ring around his eyes.

STU: Right, right.

GLENN: Like giant ringworm. I was afraid of that dog.

STU: Eddie Murphy did Buckwheat.

GLENN: But he always talked about Spanky, right?

STU: But he's butt wheat.

GLENN: He's butt wheat and Spanky. I was looking for the fat kid with Spanky.

STU: Yes, I agree. I can confirm this.

GLENN: I can't take this.

STU: This crazy theory of yours.

GLENN: I need a dog business wit kit. That's what I need. I want to go to a house and get free dog biscuits. That's what I want. Because then I'm thinking about buying a house. If I could just get free dog biscuits if I go and look at the house, then I want to buy the house.

Here's the best one. Okay. $30 bottle of Chardonnay, Godiva chocolates, live guitar music, vodka tastings, cocktail parties, shoe shines. If you think you've heard them all, try this one. Roaming actors in costumes. Now, just when you thought you couldn't understand who would get in the car to go get some free dog biscuits to look at a house, who in their right mind says, "Honey, I'm just reading here in the paper. You know that house up the street?" "Yeah." "They're having an open house." Oh, I hate that piece of garbage trash house. "Yeah, me, too. But listen here. They've got actors roaming around in costumes." "Oh, honey, I'm getting in the car now." Who's going to that! Who wants to see the live actors? I hate actors I hate all of them. Who wants to see them in costume? What are they here, what is a costume? What are you? What are you? Well, I'm trying to guess. You're in a suit. Right, right. You're just in a suit. "Yes, yes." "And... I don't know. Who are you?" "I'm pretending to be someone who might be interested in buying this house." "Wow! That's so weird! Me, too! I'm just here for the actors in costume... and have you seen any free dog biscuits?" This is America? This isn't America! We're not the we're the land of the free and home of the brave. We're not the home of the free dog biscuit if you'll just come, please, please, please look at my house, please. Oh, I have more pride than that. Okay, no, I don't. No, I don't. No, the dog biscuits I don't have more pride in. The actors I do.

Wouldn't that be uncomfortable? Would that just be what do you say? You know, what do you say? You walk around and you're like, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I thought this would be more fun than it really is. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, I'll go get another actor. "No, no, no, that's okay because it's a really weird, awkward conversation because they're just acting and I don't really know what to say to them. I think I'm going to go to that creepy cocktail party down the street where none of us know but there are no actors there, you know? Although the lady dressed as Anne Boleyn, that was kind of weird but... you know. Got any dog biscuits?"

What is your line in the sand — the point at which you take a stand and say "no"? Is it an assault on your religion? Your kids and their education? The breakdown of society? The rule of law? Is it impoverishment and the collapse of the economy?

Frighteningly, ALL of them are currently under assault, and we’re being demoralized into submission. We’re being made to look the other way in the face of evil and to accept all of it as just part of the "new normal." We were warned this would happen back in the early 1980s. Now the media and Left try to dismiss any sane objection to depravity as “the new Satanic Panic.”

There is no cabal orchestrating our demise, but IT DID have an origin. There are but a few stages left until it’s all over. On "Glenn TV," Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the ultimate Achilles' heel of the entire process. We can stop America’s moral decline, but more Americans need to rise up and find the courage to say "NO FARTHER!" or this will be our new Alamo.

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."
