Glenn Beck: Media misses Obama


Stu calls in live from Hawaii...

GLENN: Can we go now? I want to get this on right away. Excuse me, that was unprofessional but I just want to get this on right away. Our chief medical correspondent, Steve Burguiere, otherwise known as Stu, is out today. Where are you, Stu?

STU: Oh, Glenn, I'm traveling as you know right now, trying to figure out some of the big medical advancements and situations that are going on right now.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You know, the human brain is really a magnificent thing. It's part of the body that processes information. It manages what you do, and it's capable of creativity. Like if a dog in a...

GLENN: Hello?

STU: No, it didn't work. I was trying to come up with an analogy there. But the brain also has a dark side, and it's very important that people know about it. It's capable of bringing us to a dark place and that's what doctors and I, you know, other doctors and I have noticed in our studies.

GLENN: You're not a doctor.

STU: There is a heavy upturn in the level of depression and in separation anxiety among a very important sub group of our population.

GLENN: What are you even talking about?

STU: I'm talking about medical news that you care about, news you can use.

GLENN: There's some where are you?

STU: The news is important, Glenn, because this is not just some group. It's a very important, intellectual group of Americans.

GLENN: That are going through depression?

STU: And separation anxiety. I'm talking, of course, of news reporters. All of a sudden in the middle of summer Barack Obama who has been the nonstop focus of media for months has just left. I mean, he's just gone. We were looking all over for him. He's just gone.

GLENN: He's on vacation.

STU: And he's leaving reporters with nothing to do. It's very sad, Glenn. What are reporters really supposed to do with Barack and his family in Hawaii? How will they know that white people are bitter gun clinging racists that won't vote for him because he has a funny name? How are they even going to know about that? It's really sad.

GLENN: Are you okay?

STU: It's just, I

GLENN: You have the memory thing happening and or the creativity was lost and now you're

STU: I'm just saying it just, it's just, when you think about it, it gets really sad.

GLENN: Where are you?

STU: These reporters, Glenn, have seen Barack Obama sign his name. You know, they haven't been seeing him, you know, give autographs or sign someone's breasts or anything in quite some time. All week. It's just really sad, you know. I just, I mean, there's so little going on. What are we supposed to do with our time?

GLENN: Well, there's a lot going on. There's Georgia going on, there's I've just been forced to really look hard for scientific stories on this factfinding mission I'm on.

GLENN: Where again where are you?

STU: I'm in Hawaii. That's where Barack Obama is. It's very sad here.

GLENN: You're in Hawaii? Were you stalking him?

STU: I'm just saying I've had to come up with different things to try to cover here. For example, what are the effects of millions of individual differently shapes pieces of rock on the human foot? It's impossible for a human being to stand on an oddly shaped board and project himself powered by only the waves of the ocean. Is it possible to protect the quality of hydration for everyday people from the potentially polluted rain using a small umbrella in your glass? These are all questions I've had to answer this week.

GLENN: Just because Barack Obama's gone?

STU: Yeah, there's nothing else to do in Hawaii. I've been trying to just trying to research the answers to those questions.

GLENN: Have you seen Obama?

STU: I haven't really had time per se to look for him with these other experiments I've been doing.

GLENN: Sounds like you were

STU: Like if you lay a towel on the beach and you lay on it, your skin might turn colors. Is there some sort of is there some sort of interesting

GLENN: Connection?

STU: Connection, yeah, connection, obviously to something.

GLENN: Stu, you keep up the hard scientific

STU: I'm going to need another week

GLENN: Pardon me?

STU: To finish my research out here. You know, if the conventions are coming up, what's the effect of this community?

GLENN: What community?

STU: What is the effect of the Denver convention on Hawaii? I should be here to check it out. You know what I mean?

GLENN: Shouldn't you go to Denver?

STU: How does the jet ski really work? These are crazy. How do I find out about that?

GLENN: All right. Thank you very much, Stu. By the way, can you Stu, can you should we when should we let people in on our convention coverage ideas?

STU: I think we need a little bit more time to flesh that out and make sure that they

GLENN: For the Democratic convention, I don't think we need any time to flesh that one out.

STU: I'm just saying that

GLENN: Let's just say that I promise you you won't get this kind of coverage of the conventions any place else. I will say, though, also we had a hard time coming up with an interesting funny kind of fun angle on the Republican convention. I mean, we were also talking like, why don't we just go to Milwaukee. There's got to be something more fun to do in Milwaukee.

STU: It's sad, isn't it?

GLENN: It was really sad. The Democratic convention, we came up with all kinds of ideas.

STU: And you'll be hearing them.

GLENN: And you will be participating in them. And are we sending you out? We've got a couple of people we're considering sending out to conventions, and I think you'll enjoy our coverage. When is it, two, three weeks away, two weeks?

STU: Not too far. It's definitely in August, right? Two weeks away, something like that? I'll find out the date.

GLENN: I mean, I don't really care what they even say inside. I really don't. I mean, this is just going to be no, this is going to be good to cover. It's going to be good to cover. So and we'll have it covered for you.

STU: August 5th through the 28th, Glenn. And community credentials are now available.

GLENN: But I have to volunteer.

STU: Yeah, they are sending the homeless people to the zoo for the weekend but you can get credentials if you are in the community and nonhomeless.

GLENN: Maybe you can volunteer driving people that are homeless to the zoo.

STU: What about if we volunteer what if we start taking some of the people they sent to the zoo and driving them back to the convention?

GLENN: You know what, Stu, I'm thinking? I'm thinking part of our coverage should include a homeless bus taking those people from the zoo back to the convention area.

STU: Because that's the place to be. I mean, that's where you are going to get big donations. Remember that all the Democrats are the ones that care.

GLENN: Free rides for the homeless back to the cameras.

STU: >From no

GLENN: We could only drop you off right here in front of these cameras. Sorry.

STU: It's not like the Democrats wanted to remove, by giving them movie tickets what's happening here?

GLENN: That is the most I mean, I can't believe. I said to somebody last night, I said, you know, they are shutting down dissent, they are disinviting their own delegates. I mean, who's more angry? The Hillary people over the Obama people or the conservatives that feel like they've been abandoned completely? Who has a right to be more and you don't hear anybody and I'm checking into it. You don't hear anybody silencing people at the Republican convention, do you? They are doing it. And they're sending the homeless people to the zoos. Then they're building this warehouse Guantanamo Bay now in Denver. I mean, the stuff that these people are doing, the hypocrisy. And I said to somebody, where is the Democrat that says, my gosh, what has my party turned into? Where is that person? Where is anyone on television and the media that is doing the same thing that I'm doing with the conservative side? Where are you? Is there no one in the Democratic party that is outraged that the American people are being sold a pack of lies?

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."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
