Glenn & Pat review the show


The Chelsea (NYC) movie theater last night before Beck '08 began... Thanks to Kristopher for sending this in.

The packed movie house in Chelsea, the audience member has been circled in red...

Meanwhile the crowd in Peoria, IL seemed to enjoy itself... Thanks to Seth for sending this in.

.... and here's a picture of the line at one of the theaters in Oklahoma City...

Glenn: There was no nobody that had purchased a ticket in this theater. It was just going to show to an empty theater and we thought how appropriate and we were talking, we wanted to get somebody to go on the air and would actually go and buy a ticket in the Chelsea movie theater so we could say we sold one ticket there, at least one. Well, right before I yesterday we were looking at some of the cities and we checked Chelsea to see and we saw that two tickets had sold and we're thrilled. We're, like, two tickets. We're thinking some cool listener bought two tickets to the show. No. Right before I go on stage Jeff, who is the steady cam operator, that's the camera that gets really close to me and find of follows me around the stage, Jeff came with me from New York, I really like him and he's a great guy and everything else and he is very, very good at what he does so, we had him be the steady cam operator and right before we start, they said, one minute, Mr. Beck, and I said, Jeff, do you have anybody watching the show, you know, for your work, kind of kidding him, and he said, yes. Actually my sister and her boyfriend and I said, really, where are they watching? He said, they bought two tickets to the Chelsea show. They weren't even going they didn't even buy the ticket to see me. They bought it to see the work of the steady cam operator. It's amazing. But we had a great time last night. The governor of Texas was there, Rick Perry. He is as I introduced him, I said, he's either the dumbest politician in America or the bravest politician in America, especially being from Texas, knowing that we're going to talk about the border and this is just a rip these politicians limb from limb two hour spectacle. When he was introduced last night, at first he got applause and then it started to turn ugly and honestly, it was like it was like being, you know, a member of the Boston Red Sox at a Yankees game.

Pat: Was it that bad? Was it that obvious?

Glenn: Wouldn't you say that, Joe, that it got that way? First there was applause and then it started to go ugly. Yeah. And people started to boo and everything else because he's not strong on the border and so, anyway, we moved on, but I felt bad for him. I actually felt bad for his wife. I mean, if you're the politician, I'm not going to feel bad for you. That's what you get when you're a politician. I felt bad for his wife because, you know

Pat: She didn't do it.

Glenn: She didn't do it. And

Pat: Governor Good Hair, but Texas feels betrayed.

Glenn: Governor who?

Pat: Governor Good Hair. You know, his hair is I mean, he spends more in hairspray than he spends on the border, protecting us from the drug dealers.

Glenn: Is that what you call Mitt Romney?

Pat: No. I call Mitt Romney "Mitt Romney."

Glenn: Governor Good Hair, I met him and talked to him for awhile backstage. He does have good hair. Mitt Romney has great hair. So, would he be President Great Hair?

Pat: If you had to see them both side by side, who would you say has the best hair?

Glenn: Romney is a good looking man. I don't mean to go all homosexual on you, but he's a good looking man. If it were just me and him on the earth

Pat: You would be okay? You might just look at him for awhile and go, I don't know. He is pretty good looking. No, no, come on. Let's go find some beers. Well, we would both be Mormon. So, we would be, like, let's go feed ourselves to a polar bear. Of let's just end it now, but, anyway, no, he's a good looking man

Pat: Better looking than Perry?

Glenn: You have a thing for Perry?

Pat: Well, if you were a serious dislike for him.

Glenn: By the way, have I introduced Pat? This is my best friend who is filling in for Stu who is such a wiener and couldn't actually pull himself out of bed this morning. I had to watch some stupid stage show all night. So, he's sleeping in today.


But, anyway, you were saying about your thing for

Pat: So, Texans

Glenn: governor Perry.

Pat: Texans feel betrayed. He made a strong promise to us during the campaign when he ran for election, by gosh, I'm going to go down to the border and string them up and bring them back across the Rio Grande myself. He never did it.

Glenn: I've never been so close to losing I have never been to close to losing control of an audience as I was last night.

Pat: Over Rick Perry?

Glenn: I think most of it was.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: Most of it was? Joe, wouldn't you say? You were sitting in the audience.

Joe: Yeah. Of all the shows I've been to.

Glenn: This was a hard show to do.

Pat: As you spoke about illegal immigration, they were getting on Perry and

Glenn: I don't know if you could see this in the movie theaters, but there were two balconies. You could hear it, Dan?

Dan: I didn't know what it was, but I definitely heard people interrupting you at certain points.

Glenn: This is a very large theater. Could you get a sense of that, Dan?

Dan: A sense of what, that the theater was large?

Glenn: Could you see the balconies?

Dan: Yeah, yeah, oh. Yeah, it was great camera shots.

Glenn: So, there are two balconies and it was full and the balconies, the people who were down on the floor with Perry were not doing it. The balconies, holy cow! I thought they were going to start dropping water balloons on him at some point. It was very hard to hold it together, but I spoke to him before the show and then he stayed the whole time and then he came backstage afterwards, as well. I mean

Pat: So, did he tell you is he, like, a fan of the show?

Glenn: Yeah, yeah. He and his wife are a fan of the show

Pat: Would you please speak directly to him?

Glenn: I will

Pat: Rick Perry, close the border.

Glenn: Well, he

Pat: Come on.

Glenn: He talked to me about it and I don't want to share anything that he said because I don't know his I don't want to share anything that he said to me in confidence. He didn't say anything that was in confidence, but I don't want to you know, because I would like to have him go on record. You know what I mean.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: But we did talk about the Medellin case.

Pat: And this I will say about that. He's been great on that. He's been great on Medellin.

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."

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.
