GLENN: I do not want to start a war with Russia or be in a war with Russia, but they've already chosen sides. We've got to disentangle ourselves from Russia. We have got to get them out of the decision making process on the things that the west does. It's time for the West does to stand up and recognize evil and recognize the alliances that they have been building all around us. And, you know, more importantly, you know why we're in this mess in the first place? We're in this mess in the first place because we will not become energy independent. The first thing that the President should have done after he launched the warplanes over to Afghanistan is he should have said, America, we are cutting our ties from the Middle East as soon as we can. We are going to make ourselves energy independent. People say, oh, well, he couldn't do that; he needed Saudi Arabia. Fine. Then don't announce it that way. Saudi Arabia is a great friend of ours and they are in deep, deep trouble and we are going to be right by their side and we're also going to make sure that we can continue to protect and be a good friend to Saudi Arabia by making sure that we go for our coal to oil, that we drill offshore. Because only a strong ally is a useful ally. We need to get our own oil and energy. We've got to stop spending. Why do you think we don't do anything with China? We don't do anything with China because they got all of our debt. We can't do anything with China. We're looking at 19, what was it, 1948 with England. England goes in to Palestine arrest Lebanon. What was that war in 1948? They go in and it hacks the entire Middle East off. We're trying to make friends. Russia says you stop them or we will. So we said we hold a whole bunch of the British pounds. We said, you know what, you don't pull out right now, we dump your pound. They pulled out. Well, what do you think we're doing? All these people hold our money. China holds so much of our money. Russia holds so much of our money. They will dump it. So we're held hostage because of our own financial house is in wild disarray and because we don't have our energy. And it is exactly the it is exactly the opposite of what we did to Russia. I mean, it's the same thing that we did to Russia but it is the opposite when it comes to energy. We collapsed the price of oil and that's what finally threw them over the edge and they collapsed. They are inflating the price of oil. And you know what? I read a story today on the price of oil. Blood's going to shoot out of my eyes. Are we really this stupid? They are saying now that people are starting to look again into SUVs. If you couldn't afford an SUV a couple of months ago, the last thing you should be looking for now is an SUV. What? All of a sudden this oil thing is over?

Nothing, no fundamental has changed. The only thing that has changed, two things: One, who you warned. We warned. It will be a very bad sign if nothing changes and all of a sudden the global price of oil comes down because it only will come down for three reasons: One, the rest of the world realizes we're getting serious about going to find our own oil. That's not happening. You might make that case a little bit but that's not what's causing the oil to go down. The second reason is because our dollar has been strengthened. That's not happening, but our dollar is gaining value. "Glenn, I've seen it in the papers. We're gaining value." Yes, because now economists and countries believe that the rest of the world is going to go into financial turmoil and so the investors of Euros and everything else are like, okay, I don't think that's even stable; I'm going to go back to the dollar. The fundamentals have changed on the dollar that people have more faith in us than they do in Europe, a little bit more and so they're starting to move back our way. We're still not the winning dollar. And it's not built on anything but fear. We haven't strengthened the dollar. It is still worth only what we say it is. And now we're not saying that it's worth any more. The Europeans and everybody else are saying, well, maybe it's worth a little bit more than this. That's only fear. And the third reason that oil would go down is because the engine of the planet is slowing down, and when the engine of the planet is slowing down, Al Gore cheers. But that means that we're moving slower economically.

You don't grow when you can't afford your own oil, your own energy. The world can't afford the energy. So the demand has gone down. This is not a this is a period of this is not a time where people should be going out and going, "Hey, I'm going to go get an SUV. Hey, you know what, Nancy Pelosi, I don't need to put pressure on congress, or I don't need to put pressure on either of these candidates to know where they stand on energy. It's down to $3.75." Oh. Well, we should celebrate. I mean, do you ever sit in your car and you just look at a person, like right now look at the person who's driving the car next to you and just go, you dumb SOB, how do you even find your way to the highway every day. I mean, if this is the kind of people that we have in our country where we are so shortsighted and that's the thing on Georgia that gets me. We cannot be shortsighted. We can't say, "Hey, we just don't want any trouble." We have to look at what Russia has been doing all the way along here. He's setting us up, man, using the conditions that we have created for ourselves and the conditions that have been brought upon us in the Middle East and they've just sat back and said, "Okay, when the time is right, the time is going to be right." I fear that the time, if it's not right now, it will be soon where they say, hmmm, you know what? Don't mess with us anymore. They've put us in a bottle because we've allowed them to do it.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
