GLENN: Oh, jeez. All right, here's our number, 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. What we're going to do is we're going to do a draft pick, and you can pick your candidate. Are we just doing Obama today or are we doing Obama and McCain?

STU: I think we'll do Obama. Supposedly his pick is going to come tomorrow or the next day.

GLENN: So you get to pick, obviously the first one in, you know. You get the pick of the litter, and the one who picks the candidate that Obama picks, we'll give you something from the web store.

STU: I'm going to lobby here for the listeners. I know you don't care about

GLENN: One of everything from the web store? One of everything?

STU: Now I'm lobbying against you and against the listeners. It should be something in between.

GLENN: What a flip flopper. I don't care. You put the package together. They can pick whatever they want.

STU: It should be a good package.

GLENN: Fine, fine.

STU: Why are you trying to shut down the listeners?

GLENN: I'm saying give them one of everything from the website. I don't really care! Holy cow.

STU: They are picking the vice president of the United States potentially.

GLENN: No, Obama is. McCain's not, by the way. He's not picking the vice president. He's been picking the vice presidential nominee but not the vice presidential vice president, he's not.

STU: Polls are within 2 points.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Who knows what could happen. Let's

GLENN: When those Republicans pull out, you know, stuff out of their dirty tricks bag.

STU: Well, Glenn, luckily for the Republicans, everyone's so racist or this wouldn't be close. I tell you.

GLENN: Boy, you aren't kidding. Boy, the racism here in America.

STU: Did you notice his name is funny? It's still funny.

GLENN: Do you know I pulled out a dollar yesterday and I just looked at it. I was looking at Barack Obama on TV and I was going to pay something and I pulled out a dollar and went (gasping), he doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill!

I know that happened just yesterday, but it happened the day before and it will probably happen tomorrow, too. I just, because I forget. I'm like, that guy's running for President. (Gasping). He doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill! Here's our number, 888 727 BECK. Who do you choose as the vice presidential nominee for Barack Obama? Remember, this is going to be tough. Think like Obama because if you pick what he picks, you win. 888 727 BECK.

(OUT 9:41)

GLENN: All right. We go to John in New Hampshire for the how do they do this in the sports world? You should do this because I don't

STU: You have to do it in the same way every time because the commissioner always says it the same way every time. So it's like with the first pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft

GLENN: No, it's got to sound more boring than that. Aren't they usually a little more boring than that?

STU: I can do it more boring. Would the first pick of the 2008 vice presidential draft for Barack Obama, John from New Hampshire selects...

CALLER: Yeah, Glenn. Hillary Clinton. Because if he's going to if he's going to win, he's got to have her base.

STU: Wow, that's a shocking first pick.

CALLER: It's a good first pick.

STU: I don't know. You think?

GLENN: It's not going to happen. You're listening to John? You talk about John after we say goodbye, John, it's great to talk to you, then he goes away and we're safe.

CALLER: Well, I'm a Republican. So I'm hoping that he goes with Hillary.

GLENN: You know what? What is she trading on

DAN: She's trading at 10 and the leaders, Biden is at 30.

GLENN: You know what, here's the reason why he's not going to pick Hillary Clinton. Because the secret service can't watch both of them. You know what I'm saying?

CALLER: Yeah, but if they're trying to get the other one whacked, it will be all right.

GLENN: That's exactly right. Look, if I'm the President and Hillary Clinton is my vice president, I immediately say to the secret service: By the way, I need a taste tester and I need to know that you're one of the secret service that worked in the White House before and hated Hillary Clinton. I need a taste tester. And forget about I'd go out in crowds, yeah, whatever, I got that handled; keep an eye on her, will you, and him. He's got a lot of time on his hands.

CALLER: But it's change for the children. So it will be okay.

GLENN: Change for the children, thanks a lot, John. Oh, we need to get John's

STU: We're getting information as we go.

GLENN: All right. Ralph in Delaware.

CALLER: Glenn, thank you for taking my call.

GLENN: Hang on.

STU: The second pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft, Ralph of Delaware selects?

CALLER: Ralph would like to first thank Glenn for the speech he gave at the NRA convention. It was one of the most wonderful speeches I ever heard. Nancy Pelosi.

GLENN: I like him. Who? What? Nancy Pelosi? Are you out of your mind?

STU: The second pick?

CALLER: It's a left field pick.

GLENN: It's a very, very left field. It's so far left

CALLER: It would ensure a Republican victory.

GLENN: What? All right, Ralph, thanks a lot, man. It kind of you know, he starts out with, hey, I'm a big fan and that speech made more sense than anything. It's Nancy Pelosi, she's come on! Who would give a compliment and then take it away with a Nancy Pelosi draft pick!

STU: Excellent point.

GLENN: All right, let's go to Ken in New York.

CALLER: Tim Kaine.

STU: We didn't do the intro. Don't you guys understand how drafts work? With the third pick of the 2008 vice presidential Obama draft, Ken from New York selects?

CALLER: Tim Kaine because he puts Virginia in play unfortunately.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I think that's that's my pick for him. I know everybody's going with Biden and everything else. I go with McCain only because of who's the guy? Indiana?

STU: Bayh.

GLENN: He needs Indiana you know, he needs these states that don't usually, you know, vote crazy.

CALLER: We have one in Virginia. So I'm afraid he could pull Virginia out and that's scary, but keep up the good work.

GLENN: Thanks, man, I appreciate it, Ken. Tim Kaine, how's he doing on InTrade?

DAN: Tim Kaine is actually, he's down at, like, 22. But the State of Virginia is actually 51.5 to 48.5. So that's

GLENN: For winning for

DAN: The Democrats are ahead. So that would probably you know.

STU: Well, you know, Kaine, it's one of those things, you try to pick somebody who's going to get you a state but you don't want to get somebody

GLENN: Who's going to hurt you. That's the problem with him. It's the dynamic duo of inexperience. It's like, I don't know, I've been here for three months, I can't even find the light switch, I don't even know where that is.

STU: If you have a guy who comes out and, you know, the possibility of Barack Obama not doing a good job, you never know. There could be an impeachment because, you know, he's not qualified or doesn't, you know isn't experienced enough. Then who is your backup? You are going to another guy who's

GLENN: Wait a minute. I'm just trying to get my arms around this. You think there's a possibility of impeachment?

STU: I didn't say there was a possibility. What else? You are picking a vice presidential candidate based on the fact that the President wouldn't be doing the job anymore. There's several scenarios. I highlighted one of them because I don't feel like talking about the others.

GLENN: I'm sorry, so riddled with ADD. I just heard you thought there might be a possibility of impeachment. Let me ask you this. No, that was a good point you made.

STU: I know it is. If you would listen to it, you would understand.

GLENN: You just go on and on, I can't do it very long.

STU: Where is your medicine? Can you start taking your medicine again?

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Have you, have you thought about this. Pick between these two. Which do you think and I'm not saying that this is I'm not saying this is high probability. I'm just asking, in the world of probability, which one do you think is more likely in an Obama campaign, that he's impeached or he declares himself, you know, President under really difficult conditions and I'm going to relinquish this presidency as soon as I can?

STU: As soon as I get around to it?

GLENN: Yeah. Which one? That he's more likely to become Mussolini or more likely to be chased out by congress? Which one?

STU: I don't think that

GLENN: I'm not asking you, I'm not saying that these have

STU: You can't let me get through thee words without losing attention.

GLENN: I know what you're going to say.

STU: What are you going to say?

GLENN: I'm not telling you. You know why? Because you're insane.

STU: I'm not insane. You think I'm insane because you only catch every sixth word.

GLENN: What? All right, what's your point?

STU: Now I'm not giving it to you.

GLENN: I don't want it. I didn't want it in the first place. Okay, I did. Tell me. Go ahead.

STU: I don't remember what it was.

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
