Beck Blog: The Marconi Arrives

Glenn holding the Marconi Award for "Syndicated Personality of the Year"--he opened the 'package' around 11:15 am and the Award NEVER left his hands until 8:30 pm

Glenn graciously permitted Stu to hold his cherished Marconi Award and then spent the rest of the day asking Stu how many Marconis Stu had received and wouldn't leave until Stu replied 'none'

Adam and Glenn walking in downtown Manhattan with Glenn carrying his recently earned Marconi Award under his right arm. I've seen Glenn misplace his wallet and eyeglasses but there was no way the Marconi was going missing

Glenn found a nice out-of-the-way place to place his Marconi Award. The Christmas Sweater Tour Manager, Rich Bonn, is literally telling himself, "I can't believe Glenn brought that here??@@?!!"



I hope Glenn remembered to deactivate the airbag!

Behind-the-Scenes - Glenn Receives the Marconi Award

Blogging by Joe Kerry

Glenn said two things to Stu when he arrived at Radio City on Monday morning:  “we are possibly on the brink of a major economic catastrophe” and “did the package arrive”.

Stu was prepared for the ‘economic catastrophe’ remark but neither of us knew how to respond to his ‘package’ question.  We didn’t have to wait long for the answer because the ‘package’ was hand-delivered and Glenn ripped into it like a kid at Christmas tearing into wrapped packages.  Inside was the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters “Syndicated Personality of the Year” Marconi Award (see photo).

The Marconi Award is radio’s equivalent of a television Emmy or Hollywood Oscar.  It’s a big deal.  Such a big deal that I was surprised I never heard Glenn talk about being a nominee or talk about how hard he worked or how much he wanted to receive it.  I didn’t even know Glenn was a nominee.  He never talked or asked about it.  It was only when the ‘package’ arrived that I learned he was chosen to receive radio’s highest honor.

Glenn may not have made a ‘big deal’ about the Award before it arrived but I can tell you how much it meant to him because since its arrival this morning it has not left his hands, except when his television program was filmed.

After the television program, Glenn had to attend  singing auditions for his upcoming tour, A Christmas Sweater.  As he was preparing to walk to the singer auditions, Glenn tucked the Marconi Award under his arm.  Adam asked Glenn if he really wanted to bring the Marconi Award to the auditions.  The conversation went like this:

ADAM:  Glenn, why don’t you leave the award here.  It’s glass and it’ll be safer here.

GLENN:  No, it’s okay, I’ll just take it in the box.  Besides we’re going directly home from the auditions and I want to bring it home.

ADAM:  Actually, we’re coming back to CNN, so why don’t you leave the Marconi and the box in your office.

GLENN:  We’re coming back here?  Oh.  That’s okay, I still want to take it with me.

So, as we walked down the crowded streets of Manhattan on our way to the Christmas Sweater singer auditions, Glenn carried the Marconi tightly packaged in the box it arrived in (see photo).

I thought Glenn’s attention to the Marconi Award would end once we arrived in the room where the auditions would take place—and I was literally a heartbeat away from finally seeing Glenn part with the Award when one of the tour’s producers asked Glenn, “what’s in the box?”  That’s all Glenn needed.  Out came the Marconi Award, where it was immediately placed in an out-of-the-way unobtrusive place where it wouldn’t get in the way (see photo).

As an aside I have to tell you that The Christmas Sweater singing auditions were incredible.  Over 300 singers applied for this particular position and that talent pool was narrowed to six finalists.  Each singer brought such power and emotion.  I don’t know how Glenn is going to make a final decision.

On several occasions I looked over at Glenn during the auditions.  The best way I can describe how he looked is to ask if you have ever been so swept-up in the emotion of a song that you become oblivious to your surroundings.  That’s how he looked, he was in the room but his mind and heart were somewhere else-making a connection to the singer.

As we were packing-up, Glenn gingerly put the Marconi Award back into the box and I started to pack my backpack.  Adam, like usual, was already to go and waiting.  It looked like it would be an early night until one of the shows producers (yes, the same one who asked what was in the box) asked, “Glenn, you seem to know a lot about the stock market, would you invest right now?”

At first I thought it was a trick question.  The type of question that’s asked but really doesn’t have to be answered.  One look at the producer’s face immediately told me that the question was asked in earnestness.

As the question lingered in the air, waiting to be answered, I thought to myself that the poor soul who asked the question really had no idea of what was heading his way.  He had no idea of the torrent of economic data that would soon fill his ears or the virtual economic tsunami of doom and that he would shortly find himself in the midst of--all triggered by his unassuming 15 word question.

This poor man was about to be told that the entire capitalist system he was born into was coming to a possible end and that we would all soon be wearing grapefruit rinds for shoes while making our own soap from Drum fish caught on fishhooks fashioned from our belt buckles.  I don’t know how it happened, but somehow their conversation ended on a positive note.

With that, we headed back to CNN where Glenn created one more opportunity to show the Marconi Award.  When we got to his car he took it out of the box and placed it securely on the front seat (see photos).  The only question I have now is whether or not Glenn took the Marconi Award to bed—but there are some questions that best go unanswered and we’ll put this question into that category.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
