Glenn: Stu, what are those? Those are the best thing ever.

Stu: They are the best thing ever, Glenn. Exactly. They are Blue Diamond natural oven roasted almonds, vanilla flavor.

Glenn: But I would have a problem. I would eat the whole thing. I am decided I am really, really close to giving up soda.

Stu: That's silly. Soda is delicious. Enjoy it.

Glenn: I met with my doctor yesterday, two days ago, and, you know, he put my arm in a sling and he was, like, you broke your elbow sac or whatever it was. I'm like, what will hell is that?

Stu: That doesn't exist.

Glenn: That's what I said. You're making that up. You're not actually a doctor. And he's, like, no. I've got these thingies I put in my ears. And I said, I don't think you can hear my heartbeat in my elbow. He said, Shhh. I'm listening. But, anyway, but I talked to him. I said, you know, I've got to get healthy and I've got to, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and I said, I've got a really bad fall coming up with the election and everything else that's going on and he said, Well, what's your schedule? And I told him. And he said, Hum. That sounds like suicide. And I said, No, no, no. That's why you're being involved now. How do I not die? And he said, Hum. I don't know if I can help you on that one but then he gave me a bunch of stuff to do and he said, you know, you've got to give up soda and everything else.

Stu: Oh, stop it.

Glenn: No. My wife has been trying to get me to give up soda for awhile.

Stu: It's silly.

Glenn: I hate water so much.

Stu: You drink diet soda, by the way. We should point that out. I don't know if your doctor knew that or not.

Glenn: Your body processes diet soda after awhile the same way.

Stu: Why are we it's a typical, like, thing that health magazines do and Sarah is looking at me because she always complains about this to me and I understand she's way more healthy than I am.

Glenn: Did you see how fat she's getting? She hasn't gained an ounce anywhere like except in her stomach region.

Stu: Like in the last eight, nine months.

Glenn: It's this weird I think she has a tumor, a stomach tumor or something.

Stu: Really?

Glenn: Yeah. It's like she's got a watermelon in her stomach. I'm afraid of her.

Stu: Don't say it too loud. He's right there.

Glenn: I'll tell you something. If cantaloupes stop shooting out of her, remember, you heard it here first. Have a camera nearby because that would be cool.

Stu: I don't want to have that conversation. Nor do I want the video.

Glenn: We can sell the video.

Stu: That's possible. It would be a scientific

Glenn: Sarah with cantaloupes shooting out of her. It would be fantastic. Did you see the movie Chameleon? She could be on the phone and tell me with Sarah this could happen. She could be on the phone and all of the sudden her belly could rip open and then it comes and eats us. I saw it. They scamper through the air vents and stuff. Anyway, what were we talking about?

Stu: We were talking about soda.

Glenn: Yes.

Stu: And the fact that health magazines like to blame weight gain on soda.

Glenn: I wasn't blaming it on it.

Stu: It's 0 calories and also the fact that people that are fat and like to drink are the ones that drink the diet soda. So, of course they drink more. That's why they need diet sodas because they've been eating more all of their lives. I know. I'm one of them.

Glenn: That's true. I'll give you that. I look at it as 150 calories saved. There you go. This argument always pisses me off, the main ingredient in soda, water. It's mainly water.

Stu: I thought of you this your big point on this, there is a huge new development on this.

Glenn: Well, let me give you my viewpoint. What kind of I'm tired of seeing the PBS specials, the amazing machine, the human body, the amazing machine. It's so amazing, they keep telling me to drink more lousy water. I hate water. They're telling me to drink more water. Coke is mainly water. My body can't sort it out? What kind of filtering system is this?


I'm sorry. Go ahead, Stu.

Stu: Are you ready for it? There's two new fronts on this. First of all, there is a new study released that the water thing is bull crap, they've been telling you for years in all these magazines and there is no discernible difference between the people that drink 8 glasses of water a day and those that don't.

Glenn: Really?

Stu: That is bull crap. I will get the story for you momentarily.

Glenn: Am I the only one that hates water?

Stu: I like it after you exercise and stuff like that.

Glenn: I like it, like, in the middle of the night where when you wake up and you're, like, I've got to have water. Have you ever had that.

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: Where I just there's a couple of times a month, I'll wake up in the middle of the night (indicating.) I don't think I have an ounce of water in me and you crawl to the kitchen to get a drink of water and you can, like, feel your eyes get bigger.

Stu: Are you keeping a canteen next to your bed?

Glenn: I do. That's the only time I like water. It's so boring. It doesn't taste like anything. I hate it. Here's the thing. If I ever become President or God, like Obama, I'm going to make water taste good. I mean, look. Toothpaste?

Stu: Uh huh.

Glenn: It's got fluoride in it. So does water. Well, how about we make water taste minty? We can do it to toothpaste. We can't make it, like, minty fresh water? It would be great.

Stu: Do you think Barack Obama could

Glenn: Chocolate chip water. Oh, yeah.

Stu: I think Barack Obama could make chocolate chip water.

Glenn: Doughnut flavored water.

Stu: They do have a lot of the flavored waters now, Glenn.

Glenn: Yeah. They suck.

Stu: Can Barack Obama part a bottle of water? He can part the sea, we know.

Glenn: Only well, first of all, he wouldn't because Fiji water is brought from an island on a giant 747 and that's not very environmentally sound, but he can do it with Perrier.

Stu: Really?

Glenn: Yeah. It's French.

Stu: It's interesting. Now, Glenn, the other development in this little turn of events

Glenn: Yes.

Stu: that's completely off topic and all we've got here is I was in a grocery store the other day and I'm going through the soda aisle, which I spend most of my time in the soda aisle, and there is a big, giant case of soda, a big display that has as one of its advertising slogans on the back Soda Hydrates, Too, and it's a big thing about how don't believe it, soda can give you just as much hydration as water.

Glenn: Well, that would be coming from a bigot like you. So

Stu: It comes from big soda.

Glenn: No. It comes from a bigot like you, somebody who is just so bigoted who thinks I can vote for Barack Obama but that means I'm not a racist.

Here is the latest, Barack Obama the campaign is already starting to come out now that if you vote for Barack Obama, it doesn't mean you're not a racist. So, you could vote for him, you could support him, he could be the most powerful man in the world, but it doesn't mean anything about you being a racist. You're still a racist, honky.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
