GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. I have to tell you now I'm starting to look like an optimist with some of the things that have been said now that capitalism just doesn't work, that capitalism is now going to fail, that our system has been discredited. Sarkozy has come out and said capitalism is not dead but capitalism as America understands it is dead. The states now will play a bigger role. Well, that is not capitalism. That is nationalism. That is nationalizing your industry. That's fascism. Remember when I said, what, four months ago we are marching towards fascism. "No, that's crazy." There is a new system that has been developed. It has been developed in China and it has been developed in Russia and that's what we're headed for. I should have known it. I should have known it.

I have a friend who was working at one of the big stock markets and he said he was on a plane and he had gone over to China and it was the time when Yao Ming was playing somebody and it was carried while he was over there on national television of China. And he said, my gosh, Glenn, it was such a market. It was 60 million people watching on just one channel and it was carried on four different channels. He's like, the NBA is over there. What a market. And I said, National Basketball Association. He said, what are you talking about? I said, it's not a market. This is our country, man. He's like, it's all going that direction. I should have known it. I should have known it that the people who are into finance, they don't see us this way anymore. They don't see they see it, "Well, it's all global, all going to be one." And when they saw a way to make money and they see a way for things to get done the way they want it to get done and that's the only way... capitalism in a democracy, it's ugly. It's brutal. A republic is ugly because you've got to convince everybody to do it.

The reason why, the reason why our country almost lost World War II was because you've got to convince people. We couldn't gear it up right away. You've got to convince people, you've got to bring them on board, you've got to do what we're doing now. What were we screaming at last weekend? What are we screaming at? Every time they make these on a weekend. They make these deals on a weekend, they keep us out of it. Whose country is this? Well, you are about to find out. Whose country is this? It is the global banks, it's the Fed, it's the central banks, it's the politicians. The country is fundamentally changing. German finance minister says the dollar is going to become relative to all other currencies. The Germans want it, the Chinese want it. The Chinese are talking about the Chinese are talking about one global currency, not the U.S. dollar. One global currency. Chinese yesterday said that their banks can no longer make any loans to the United States. The UN says one world finance. The UN also, several people at the UN this week said capitalism is dead, it doesn't work. What are you talking about it doesn't work? Greed doesn't work. Concentrated political power doesn't work. Fannie and Freddie doesn't work. Why did Fannie and Freddie not work? Because it is the hybrid between government and capitalism. It is taking political power and injecting money into it. That's why it didn't work. Socialism doesn't work. Marxism doesn't work. Fascism doesn't work. Capitalism works. Capitalism put a man on the moon. Chinese, they're trying to walk in space today. We've not only walked in space, we've had a picnic on the moon. Capitalism. Freedom.

You think Edison would have done what he did? You think Edison would have been able to do what he did in a country like China? Nope. Not free to think. Not free to fail. Edison changed the world in America. This country changed the world. This system changed the world and now they have been slowly but surely changing our system. They have been they have been doing it since 1914. They have been moving this direction. They have been moving step by step, piece by piece towards global government and now we're about to get a global financial system. We're about to get an America that we don't even begin to recognize. This is a hostile takeover of our country. And it's all done literally in the middle of the night. Where's the voice that says we shouldn't be doing this? Where's the voice? Do you hear anybody in congress? Where's the coverage of Ron Paul? This guy has predicted this every step of the way. Where's the coverage of Ron Paul? Where's the coverage, where's the coverage of DeMint? Why is that? How's that happening? Where is the spine of either one of these candidates to tell us, to step to the microphone and say this is what needs to be done? You know why? You know why we're not doing it? Because they don't know. They got people. This is how I'd kill for President Romney right now. A guy who could step to the microphone and explain it. And say, look, this is the deal. These are the things that we have to do. At least, at least he could be held accountable. These people are not going to be held accountable because they're not going to take a stand. Why aren't they going to take a stand? Because they don't truly understand it. They are being used. Their strings are being pulled.

These guys are calling in some of the biggest experts let me tell you something. Let me tell you something that I let me tell you something that I haven't seen in the press anywhere. I only have one source on this. So maybe it's it's a good no, it's a good source.

John McCain had a meeting. Some of the biggest, some of the biggest names, some of the biggest names in industry. Capitalism, big, big brains. It's my understanding that that meeting that was called was to last an hour and had 20 of the biggest people go into that meeting. Well, why haven't I heard about that meeting? Who were the people involved? And that's great, if you are doing that, that's great. But you had 20 people and it was going to last an hour? You give everybody two minutes to speak, you haven't solved a damn thing. That only leaves 20 minutes to come up with a solution and argue about it. What the hell is that? Besides a publicity stunt? But there was no publicity. Why did that happen? Did it happen? Did it happen? Who are the people advising these people? I know who Obama has. You know, he had Raines as his advisor, the guy who brought us, what was it, Fannie or Freddie? Made $90 million in salary. Cooked the books. That was his mortgage guy to give advice on, you know, the mortgage situation. You've got to be kidding me, right? I know Bob Rubin is advising Obama. I haven't agreed with anything that guy says. That guy, that guy is going to take you to a socialist place. And they're taking us there. Where is the coverage of any other voice? Where is any other option? We're going to get a deal. That's what the President says. We're going to get a deal. Well, how about presenting the options to us?

You notice that the President, he spoke. He explained the problem, kind of, and then he says we need a bailout. But it was where's somebody that will explain the charts? Where was somebody that will say, "Look, America, you've got a choice. America, we're on the verge of collapse. America, the rest of the world says capitalism doesn't work." Where is that in the news? Where is the leader that's going to stand up and say, bullcrap capitalism doesn't work. Greed doesn't work. Where is that?

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
