GLENN: You're telling me that the country that embraced this really, truly understood drill for more oil in ANWR? No.

STU: This was out as we voted for it and then the stupid President Clinton vetoed it.

GLENN: No, this is -- oh.

STU: Maybe he vetoed it because of this.

GLENN: This is where -- this is where, when we were in our cars and we turned on the radio, we should have known Jesus is coming soon, within -- when did this come out?

DAN: That would be 1996.

STU: I mean, you can't judge -- clearly we were gone by this time.

GLENN: Jesus in 16 years. From right -- that's when it would have been on the radio. Yep, 16-year warning.

STU: She is laughing, Glenn.

GLENN: I can't take it.

STU: You've got to think she's having a good time.

GLENN: Can't take it.

STU: She's having a good time, she's getting into it. Kind of nice.

GLENN: You know this song, was it from the Nineties or the 2000s? What was it? I hate the -- you know back in the old days when our great, great-grandparents were around? They called is the oughts. We don't have that.

STU: That's amazing. We went through the --

GLENN: We're almost through the decade and we don't know how to say it, the 2000s, back in the -- we don't have anything. Our grandparents -- that's another sign. That's another sign. Our grandparents figured it out! In ought one, in ought two. Can you imagine hearing somebody say that? Why? Why is that so bad? It makes sense. Instead we're like in the 2000s. That's 100-year span. That's a 1,000-year span!

STU: Yeah, we definitely failed. We failed as a society and I think Macarena proves that. I'm just saying the point of when we turned over is, I don't think you're right to say it's in the Eighties at all. I think it was long gone before that. I mean, you -- it's -- this is what I want. I want a full and open, honest debate about when the turnover was. I want 17,000 town hall meetings scheduled every 90 minutes until we figure this out because this is important.

GLENN: If I said no, would I be dodging that debate?

STU: Yes, of course you'd be dodging that debate.

GLENN: I'd be dodging that debate. I will give you that it's not Macarena, but I believe the end of all society started with Rapper's Delight.

STU: With Rapper's Delight?

GLENN: Rapper's Delight.

STU: Well, that's the Seventies.

GLENN: I know. That was just a, that was a coming echo. That was like, ooh, trouble.

STU: Is this any deeper than you just don't like rap?

GLENN: Nope, nope.

STU: This is a legitimate viewpoint. I'm just trying to get to the bottom.

GLENN: No, it is legitimate. It's legitimate.

STU: You think rap in particular, dancing rap about dinner at a friend's house is what ended the society?

GLENN: Uh-huh, Rapper's Delight. Play it. Do you have it? Sugar, Sugarhill Gang, Sugar -- stop just a second.

Dan, I have to question. How do you just happen to have that ready so rapidly?

DAN: Well, I don't know this is an issue we need to dive into at this point in time. I think we can just continue with your point and not get sidetracked. We only have a couple of minutes left here in the segment and I think --

STU: It's a very large computer system.

DAN: Thank you, Stu.

GLENN: Go ahead. See, right here. Driving in our car, we should have said, this is trouble, this is going to lead to nowhere good.

STU: If you've got a guy who --

GLENN: I liked this at the time.

STU: It's like 30 minutes long, too.

GLENN: No, I know. I liked this at the time.

DAN: 5:01.

STU: This is the short version, trust me. It's not 5:01.

GLENN: I liked this song when it came out, but we should have known better. We should have said this is not going to end well. This is like when it's funny, when you're watching your kids and they're running, you know, they're running with the croquet ball.

STU: The croquet ball? What kind of reference is that?

GLENN: Well, I just, it's a very painful reference because it was very funny when Raphe was holding the croquet ball and he was trying to use it as a baseball and I said, no, son, it's not a base -- and then he hit me in the head with it. What I'm saying is, we should have known then it's not going to end well.

STU: I disagree. When you can sing a song about not liking a meal at a friend's house, that is --

GLENN: Is that really what this song is about?

STU: Well, it gets there. He goes to his friend's house and the food is not good and he doesn't -- he wants to be nice because it's his buddy but he has to -- at the end it's too disgusting.

GLENN: I'm just saying that I believe this may -- I'm going to drop this marker in the water that this may have been the turning point.

STU: I want to fold debate, particularly lists.

GLENN: Bring it on.

(OUT 10:52).

(Music playing)

GLENN: No, now see Stu says that this is a sign of the end times.

STU: A little bit. It's hard to deny.

GLENN: I mean, who doesn't like MMMBop.

STU: You'd be surprised at the amount of people who would raise their hand.

GLENN: Yeah, but a lot of people in their college years, guys, had MMMBop posters on their wall.

STU: No one had that -- you don't have an example of someone who --

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Dan Andros.

STU: Dan Andros?

GLENN: The producer of the program here.

STU: How old are you?

DAN: Look, it worked at the time and I stand by it.

STU: It worked at the time what, to lure teenage boys?

GLENN: He was a very big fan of Hanson and now he's met Chris Hansen, the older brother.

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."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
