Glenn Beck: Beyond the Headline


BITTER T-SHIRT

Having trouble keeping track of all the insults that Barack Obama has been sending your way lately? If you're a bitter typical while person clinging to God and your guns...then this is the t-shirt for you. Get yours today.

GLENN: Obama has given a speech today talking about now is the time to redeploy our combat troops. If surge has caused a strain on our military. We were just talking about this in the break. I can't keep up with these people. I cannot keep up with these people. No matter what the problem is, we've got to attack that, that's a reason we should get out right now is because of that problem." You solve that problem, they'll find another problem. And then you solve that one and they will find another problem. Can we ever be successful, could we ever just stop -- did you hear about the big story over the weekend that was the nine troops that were killed? Did you hear that story? Stu, what were the details of that story that you can remember?

STU: The details of that story, Glenn, is that nine troops were killed. That's --

GLENN: No, but there had to be more.

STU: There was nine troops.

GLENN: Nine troops killed.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: How were they killed? I mean, that was a horrible, horrible story. There were nine troops killed.

STU: There was nine troops killed and I believe the cause of it was evil imperialist policy?

GLENN: No, no. No, no, no, they -- Al-Qaeda was attacking a base. There were 500 Al-Qaeda.

STU: Taliban?

GLENN: Taliban? What's the difference?

DAN: The article said Afghan insurgents, whatever that means.

STU: Maybe a nice little mix.

DAN: Freedom fighters.

GLENN: Well, if we would stop occupying their country, maybe we wouldn't have to fight for their freedom. So 500 freedom fighters go and they try to attack our base. We killed over half of them. They are not having a party in the base. They are not even in the base. We destroyed them.

STU: When they took over the base --

GLENN: No, they didn't take over the base --

STU: Then what did they do.

GLENN: No, they didn't take over the base.

STU: They scared the rest of them away --

GLENN: No, the rest of the troops weren't scared away. We kicked their butt.

STU: No, the barbecue.

GLENN: They didn't have a barbecue. You don't understand. We won. It would be like --

STU: When they bake the pie, they took the pie out of the oven --

GLENN: It's like a basketball game and the score is 250-9 except it's not basketball. It's gulf! The lower the score, the bigger the win! Ahhh! I don't know how to deal with it anymore because the truth just doesn't matter. The truth doesn't matter. I have never seen the -- I've been in the media for 30, how many years. Look, I'm not a mathematician but I am a thinker. I've been in the media for over 30 years. For the love of Pete, I've never seen it like this. Barack Obama, is anybody going to point out how wrong he was on the surge? No, no. They're just like, oh, yeah, he's right, the surge is a strain on the military. Shouldn't have done that. We should have pulled them out. Pell them out? Back then? When all the bad guys were still walking around? That doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

STU: See, I don't know what paper you're reading, but from what I've read, the war was lost a long time ago.

GLENN: No, I don't get the Harry Reid Times.

STU: No, but the Harry Reid Times said the war was lost.

GLENN: I know, I know, that was the big headline. War wasn't lost.

STU: If you've lost the war, why are you going to a surge. It's over.

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. The Harry Reid Daily News, it's like future news.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, it's like Harry Reid will just get up and go, future news. "The war is lost." Future news! And then they just print it in the Harry Reid headlines and then you read it and you're like, wow, I hope that doesn't happen. And the good news is Harry Reid sucks at, you know, as Nostradamus.

STU: Right. So you know the opposite of what he predicts will occur.

GLENN: Harry, if I may just give you a piece of advice, you know how Nostradamus cloaked his things in, you know, poetry and everything so you weren't really sure? You're like, well, he could have meant that. You know what I mean?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Like when he was like, you know, -- and then there was red and black and there would be like, that could have been the assassination of Kennedy. He was in a black car and she was kind of wearing a red dress. It was pink. He might have seen it differently, but I think that's what it is.

STU: Yeah, the interpretation, there's all sorts of room there.

GLENN: So Harry Reid needs to start saying, the war... and then just end it there.

STU: Right. Because the people say he knew a war would be going on.

GLENN: He knew the war was going on. You've got to give him that. He knew the war was going on. I think he meant that it was going poorly and we were losing. No, no, no, no, no, you don't understand. This guy's a genius. He meant that we were going to win.

STU: Were going to turn the whole thing around.

GLENN: Future News, from Harry Reid.

STU: He's brilliant, this guy.

GLENN: Still not worse than Chuck Schumer.

STU: Oh, I disagree. I think he's worse than Schumer. He's -- I mean, he's not even good. At least Schumer comes off like he might have an idea what he's talking about. Harry Reid is horrible.

GLENN: I will give you that. I will give you that.

STU: He's just not good at what he does.

GLENN: See, you watch him -- I don't understand how people do this. You watch him and you're like, how does anybody bind this. You go back to coal makes us sick. Do you have that clip?

STU: That performance is terrible. That guy, I mean, that is a terrible performance. You wouldn't have this guy out selling crackers.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Does it bother anybody else that Stu -- and it seems reasonable? I mean, it's true? Does it bother anybody else that Stu was just describing a leader in congress as giving a performance?

STU: It's true. Isn't it?

GLENN: It is. They're performing. They don't believe any of this crap. Come on, can Harry Reid actually believe this stuff? Anybody who actually believes this stuff? I heard Robert Reich on CNBC last night and he was talking about the way for more informing is to tax people and these energy companies more. What? Come on, man, you can't actually believe that. It was a very good performance. I still don't believe. The guy can't tie his shoes if you would believe that. All right, here's Harry Reid and his performance.

REID: We talked about cost competitiveness but the one thing we failed to talk about is those costs that you don't see on the bottom line. That is, coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. This global warming, it's ruining our country.

GLENN: Stop, stop.

STU: It's ruining our country, it's ruining our world. What possible perspective could you have.

GLENN: That's somebody sitting in the room going, give this a whirl. Just get on and say, it's making us sick. Throw it out there. See if it sticks to the -- I swear to you that's where they come up with this stuff. They're just like, I don't know, there's enough dummies out there; just give that a whirl.

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
