Glenn's Cabinet


Glenn Beck live in HD - July 17th at a movie theater near you

GLENN: And these movie theatres in several states are now sold out. And I just, last night I just heard, I don't remember which movie chain tried to get permission and, fine with me but I don't know how Fathom Events does this because it always has to be live, they said can we do other show times. And I said, there's not enough water to replenish my body in time to do it. I mean, I'll sweat like 40 gallons.

STU: I know that, like, a lot of these theatres only use this technology in one, if I'm understanding this right, one screen.

GLENN: There are some theatres that have multiple screens and they have already opened them up to multiple screens and they're sold out and now they want to go to multiple showings. So -- but we will try. It is only one performance and this is Thursday night. Go to GlennBeck.com to fine out all of the information. And then we're in Dallas and there's a couple of things going on. I just found out somebody else is coming to the performance on Thursday. On Friday we're going to be in Houston. There is somebody in Houston that is going to arrive that I can guarantee you will be nonstop standing ovations as they are sitting in the crowd in Houston, Texas. Guarantee you. And it might be somebody that I'm considering putting on my cabinet because if I were running, I'm giving the ultimate politically incorrect speech this week because we wrap up Beck '08 Unelectable, our comedy tour, I'm giving the complete -- I'm giving the speech really honestly that I think the President should give. He would be completely unelectable, but it's the truth. It's what every American wants to hear. So I'm giving that on Thursday. I think I need a cabinet. So you're looking at, like, the secretary of energy. I mean, who are you going to do? The only one that really comes to mind, she's not strong enough, the governor from Alaska. I'm digging her.

STU: She would be fantastic secretary of energy.

GLENN: Oh, I'm digging her. If she weren't married and I'm not married, oh, yeah, come on, bring it on. I don't even remember what she looks like. I just find her energy talk so erotic. You know what I mean? She's just like, oh, we could drill here all day long, and I just, I don't know. There's something about her that I just love.

STU: She's fantastic. She would be a great choice for that. I mean, that's a serious -- you don't have that sort of pull. You're not going to get a good candidate like that.

GLENN: No, I'm saying if I'm President. If I'm President, a lot of things change. I don't give you the option not to serve. You're serving. "Hey, governor, what's your face, come to Washington. You're serving."

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, I would do a draft. I do a draft, yeah.

STU: See, I don't think that that would work out.

GLENN: No, I think it would. I think there's enough people out there -- because you know what? I may not even need that because in my administration there wouldn't be any bullcrap. You know what I mean? We would sit in the cabinet room and you could televise it or whatever you want and people could say something and I'd say, that's genius. Well, Glenn, that will kill all of the one-eared bunnies in all of Wisconsin. I would say, sucks to be a one-eared bunny, doesn't it?

STU: You know, it does suck to be a one-eared bunny.

GLENN: It does. It really does. Hang on, let me weep for the bunnies. Okay, I'm over it. Let's drill through their heads for more energy. Department of Homeland Security, you know who I want as Department of Homeland Security, I not only pardon Compean and Ramos, I appoint them as the head of Homeland Security. How's that? Hey, I know you guys spent some time in jail. I'm erasing that and... I'm giving you a raise. You know those guys that set you up? You know those guys who wouldn't do what we were supposed to do on the border and you spent time in jail? Yeah, you get to fire them. We can do it on TV if you want. Go ahead.

STU: See, I don't know if there's, like, partners in these jobs. I think it's typically one person --

GLENN: It's my administration. Homeland Security is a big job. There's two borders. One could be Department of Homeland Security north and the other one for south.

STU: How hard do you push for the northern job. That's a much easier job.

GLENN: Actually, you know what, I think the -- I mean, not right now because the drug cartels, but I think on terrorism, I think the northern border is more dangerous than the southern border. I'm just saying. Or we could go with Sheryl Crow. She could get things done, you know? She could just, we could sit down and talk to everybody.

STU: She could sing a very nice song about sun or all she wants to do.

GLENN: Something like that.

STU: Las Vegas or something.

GLENN: Secretary of defense, I would like to nominate Ted Nugent.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I just think secretary -- wouldn't that be great? Nobody would screw with us. Nobody -- we would just say -- as the President I would say, you know what, Iran, I told him I was going to sleep on it but Ted Nugent, our secretary of defense, he said he wants to come over and kick your ass. I'm going to sleep on it. You know what? If you have a change of heart, call me before tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. that damn phone will ring!

STU: Yeah. That will be the 3:00 a.m. call everyone's always talking about. In all the political commercials the phones always ring at 3:00 a.m. it's to avoid getting your ass kicked by Ted Nugent.

GLENN: Ted Nugent. We could reduce the size of the military like crazy because the guy we would have as secretary of defense is this close from being crazy. It would be great. I'm just saying.

STU: I love the pick. I mean, don't you -- should you consider, you know, maybe someone who has experience in, you know, some sort of qualifying position?

GLENN: Secretary of defense? Do you know what an experienced hunter Ted Nugent is?

STU: That's very true. I'm just saying that maybe in a, more of a --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: War planning --

GLENN: Do you know Ted Nugent wants to go hunting with me? I said, Ted, are you out of your mind? He said, no, I want to take you hunting, brother. But Ted, you're crazy.

STU: That's the one person I would trust hunting with you. A, he's very safe with -- very responsible with firearms. B, he's one of the few people in America that don't want to kill you. I mean, this is a --

GLENN: He may have to. I'll be whining the whole time. Oh, can you imagine? Adam, Adam wants to go hunting with me, Greg Stube, war hero, Marcus Luttrell, war hero, and -- oh, and my nephew before he goes back to Iraq.

STU: Well, I mean --

GLENN: I said, are we -- Greg is a medic, right? I mean, we're going to need a doctor on site for me.

STU: Just walking up hills, let alone.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It will be like, just let's go to the store and get some meat. What are we hunting -- we can go to the store. It's all wrapped up in a styrofoam tray. Made, by the way, from petroleum! See, that's how the mind works. I will won't be able to get meat in the lies convenient little styrofoam tray because congress won't drill!

STU: But you have to consider that whenever you're going on a trip into the wilderness, you don't have television, you don't have movies. You need comic relief. And watching you walk up hills is --

GLENN: Oh, you know what, I'm going to be the guy that about halfway through the afternoon I'm going to find myself and one of them's going to say, you know, you've got a mighty pretty mouth, and I'll just start crying. That's --

STU: I mean, it's probable.

GLENN: I don't like nature.

STU: You really don't get along with it.

GLENN: I don't, I don't like nature. I'm the only guy who would be very, very happy with my head in a jar. Somebody would have to carry me around. I could just talk and think and, you know, wouldn't have to answer -- nobody would ever have to say, "Hey, can you get that?" Nope, can't, just a head in a jar.

STU: I mean, they could easily roll you down hills with the head in the jar. Maybe put the jar into like a plastic bubble and then they can roll you down the hills and that's an easy --

GLENN: Why would they need to roll me down a hill? Just leave me like on a windowsill.

STU: No, if you want to go on a camping trip --

GLENN: I live in San Diego. You put me on a windowsill, I'm looking at the ocean the whole time. I'm a head in a jar. I can do that anywhere. I can telecommute. I don't actually have to have a desk. I don't need a computer. I don't have hands. I'm only a head. It's fantastic.

STU: Are you trying to tell me you're so lazy that even if you had no torso, you still wouldn't go into nature and walk?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Even if someone was carrying your head, you wouldn't go up a trill with trees?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: God.

GLENN: What's the point? I'll just look at it. Look at it. Look, it's a nice day outside. It's nice. I don't want to go out in it. It's hot. It's not a constant temperature.

STU: You are the only person in America with negative muscle tone. Like, that's how unathletic you are.

GLENN: Well, I've told you the story of when the doctor actually, you never want to hear a doctor stand behind you, back surgeon stand behind you and touch your body and then laugh. And I had one of the best surgeons in the country did that. He laughed. And I said, that's not really comforting. He said, no, I just, I've never, I've never felt anyone with less muscle tone than you. I said, hey, do I get an award for that? Do I get a special discount or anything?

STU: Look what we've done. This is what government does. We were trying to get your cabinet picked and then we talk about your head in a jar rolling down a hill for 20 minutes.

GLENN: Let me go to Matt.

No, wouldn't you rather have the President of the United States spend time on stuff like that, though? Really?

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.
