GLENN: Hang on just a second. This is breaking news. We should have started it the right way.

DAN: This is breaking urgent news on the Glenn Beck program.

STU: That's right. Thank you for that wonderful introduction. Right now I'm in Washington and we're watching the congress at work. They realize we are in an energy crisis and they realize that people are paying a lot of money for gas. It's really weighing on people's personal budgets and their pocket books, if they carry them. And right now, Glenn, they are doing that by, of course, the one step that congress is allowed to take under the Constitution which is interviewing Scott McClellan about his new book.

VOICE: Do you know what steps were taken by the White House to conduct an investigation into the internal leak?

GLENN: Are we talking about an oil leak here? What kind of leak? One of the refineries that is leaking right now that is causing this oil?

STU: Well, Scott McClellan wrote in his book about that Valerie Plame thing. So... thus the hearings. Hold on. Listen.

VOICE: -- sentence. Now, this would seem -- well, do you regard this as in any way in violation of the President's pledge to find out all the information he could and making public about --

STU: That means a million barrels of oil have been found.

GLENN: Well, how is this finding oil?

VOICE: It does undermine our system of justice in my view.

STU: Yes, yes. Do you hear that?

GLENN: I don't know what you're --

STU: That means ANWR is open.

GLENN: No, I think this is -- I think this is really just about the Scooter Libby thing.

STU: No, he's got a new book out. Listen to this.

VOICE: He did say anything that was involved in this -- I said on his behalf no one would be on this --

STU: You know what that means, Glenn.

GLENN: No, I --

STU: We can now drill off the coast of Florida. In fact, all of that gas is already to the pumps. You are probably down to, like, $2.50 a gallon right now if you check outside.

GLENN: But Stu, I really do believe this doesn't have anything to do with oil.

STU: No, no. Listen, listen, listen.

VOICE: I do not know that. I do not make that claim and I do not have the information to know whether or not that was the thinking. I had already left the White House by the time he commuted Scooter Libby.

STU: Oil on the continental shelf is now available to be drilled. See, he's switching to oil technology.

VOICE: Let me, on behalf of some members of the committee apologize to the aspersions of your motives instead of questioning --

STU: (Inaudible). He's nonconcerned about the evidence of Scott McClellan.

GLENN: Yeah, now that he's got a book out. This is amazing. This is absolutely amazing. What is up with us! This is absolutely incredible. I can't take it anymore. We'll go back to Stu in Washington maybe a little later on in the program. Stu, are you back in the studio yet?

STU: Yeah, Glenn, I'm here. Thank God that oil shale has opened up.

GLENN: Amtrak is really fast.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
