Glenn Beck: #1 NYT Gloatfest


NY Times #1 Best Seller - The Christmas Sweater by Glenn beck

VOICE: And now another book that beats Stephen King on the New York Times Best Seller list this week.

GLENN: Oh, mine!

VOICE: This has been books that beat Stephen King on the Glenn Beck program.

Welcome to the We beat Stephen King Gloat Fest 2008 on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: It's the Glenn Beck Gloat Fest. I mean, it's a little childish, sure, but the guy didn't think soldiers could read. Yeah. Hang on just a second. We have Dr. Fredley on the phone? Doctor, are you there?

DR. FREDLEY: Yes, I am.

GLENN: You are Dr. Stanley Fredley?

DR. FREDLEY: Dr. Stanley Fredley. I am a psychiatrist and one of my patients is Stephen King.

GLENN: Wouldn't this be violation of some sort of ethics?

DR. FREDLEY: Well, normally it would but I'm listening to your program today and it's very disturbing. You are not helping things.

GLENN: I mean, I just started. I mean, wow, it's almost like you knew in advance that I was going to have a Gloat Fest on Stephen King.

DR. FREDLEY: No, just immediately called the second I first heard the theme. My point here, though, is this is a man who wrote Cujo, this man wrote Salem's Lot, this man wrote The Stand. Do you realize this Firestarter? Do you remember?

GLENN: Yeah, I remember. What was the one about the prison thing?

DR. FREDLEY: The Green Mile?

GLENN: No, that was a good one, too. The other prison thing that, you know, the guy was, you know, an accountant and he was thrown in jail. Morgan Friedman was in the movie?

DR. FREDLEY: Don't know. I don't remember that.

GLENN: Shawshank Redemption. Yeah, that was it. You didn't know that was written by Stephen King?

DR. FREDLEY: No. He didn't tell me everything. Listen, I'm just a psychiatrist. I'm not his publicist.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Well, naming things that he had written. He's a very big, you know, very big author.

DR. FREDLEY: He's a very big author. And the fact that someone of your ilk has --

GLENN: Right. You mean -- wait, wait, wait. You mean the guy who beat him that he named Satan's -- what was it again?

DR. FREDLEY: Satan's mentally challenged younger brother.

GLENN: Right. And the fact that he called me that and said soldiers couldn't read. For me to beat him, that's weird, isn't it?

DR. FREDLEY: Well, yes, that's the point. Someone of your awful ilk somehow beats someone like Stephen King, I mean, do you know how long these sessions are supposed to be for me? I was supposed to go away this weekend.

GLENN: I'm sorry. I --

DR. FREDLEY: I'm just saying that, look, it's a little bit unfair because if Stephen King would have known that you would be there and somehow have a chance of beating him, he could have actually written a good book.

VOICE: And now another book that beat Stephen King on the New York Times Best Seller list this week.

GLENN: Boy, this is tough. I don't -- oh, shoot, what's the name of it? Oh, yeah. Mine.

VOICE: This has been books that beat Stephen King on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: Stu, may I ask, is it a little childish? Just a little?

STU: To say that the troops can't read? I think it is because when you have --

GLENN: No, I meant, you know, childish, you know, my part of it.

STU: Your part of it in criticizing him saying that the troops can't read? No, I don't think that's childish because it is a really --

GLENN: (Laughing). It's not just, it's not just the troops. It's that he has such contempt for the troops and anybody who is conservative that he would call me Satan's mentally challenged younger brother.

STU: What does that make him? What does it make him? If he's losing to you? You're a mentally challenged child -- brother of Satan! And he can't even beat him!

GLENN: Oh, we've had so few victories, conservatives. We've had so few victories. Oh, just spend a day and drink it in.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: This is almost as satisfying as Sean Penn going down to Venezuela and then being locked up, you know, and being in one of the gulags from Hugo Chavez and going, "Wait, Hugo, I thought we were friends. Hugo!" It's almost that satisfying.

STU: You just have to think -- and, you know, I don't know what Stephen King's life is like. I would imagine it's bizarre. But you just have to think there's at least a moment today where he --

GLENN: Questions everything.

STU: Questions everything on the planet.

GLENN: He's questioning, holy cow, maybe I'm over. Maybe -- am I over? I mean, we should look it up. When was the last time Stephen King released a book and it wasn't number one?

STU: I have no idea. You know, I'm not in the publishing industry per se but it's like I always thought when Stephen King releases a book, it's automatically number one.

GLENN: Of course it is.

STU: That's Stephen King. That's what he does.

GLENN: Of course it is. It's Stephen King. Look, I'm looking at the New York Times best selling list? David Baldacci, great, great author, Divine Justice came out; The Hour I First Believed, Wally Lamb. That's, what, two times in Oprah book club guy? Always number one. A Mercy by Toni Morrison; Gate House, Nelson DeMille. Here's a book that people have been waiting for for 25 years. Extreme Measures by Vince Flynn. He's a girl. Salvation in Death, isn't J. D. Robb -- what?


STU: Why is Vince Flynn a girl?

GLENN: He's a girl.

STU: Is that because he insulted you on his little liner?

GLENN: He's on my -- I don't remember that. He is on my crap list forever. J. D. Robb, I think that's a, what do they call that, a nom de plume?

STU: Pseudonym.

GLENN: Yeah, for somebody else famous. Nicholas Sparks at number 9. Stephen King, number 2. All of these people deserve to beat me, all of them. All of them.

STU: They are much better, much more accomplish.

GLENN: Yeah, and Stephen King deserves, you know -- I can't bring myself to say it, can't bring myself to say it, no. Everybody else, I wouldn't care if we were number 17 as long as we were number -- as long as Stephen King were number 18. It's just so satisfying.

STU: Glenn, as far as --

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. I just have to say this.

VOICE: And now another book that beat Stephen King on the New York Times Best Seller list this week.

GLENN: There wasn't very many. Gosh -- oh, I remember. The Christmas Sweater.

VOICE: This has been books that beat Stephen King on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: Let me just say this. I know, what I know to be true is the philosophy of the Christmas Sweater, yeah. Anything can happen. Believe in it and it shall be. Oh, yes, my friend. And by the way, Stephen, I absolutely, you're one of my favorite writers. You're fantastic but now that, you know, now that I think we could say it's safe to say we're contemporaries (laughing). I don't know, that ending of It with the giant spider, not the way I would have done it but what do I know, New York Times best selling author that beat you. That's crazy. Okay.

Oh, wait a minute. Hang on. Dr. Fredley's back. Dr. Fredley's back on phone.

DR. FREDLEY: This is not Dr. Fredley.

GLENN: This is not Dr. Fredley? Who is this?

DR. FREDLEY: No, this is Sally. Yeah.

GLENN: This is Sally?

DR. FREDLEY: Sally King.

GLENN: Sally King?

DR. FREDLEY: Sally King.

GLENN: Who is Sally King?

DR. FREDLEY: I'm the wife or something of Stephen King.

GLENN: You're Stephen King's wife?

DR. FREDLEY: Yeah.

GLENN: Why do you sound like Dr. Fredley?

DR. FREDLEY: Dr. Fredley?

GLENN: Dr. Fredley almost sounds like Stu.

DR. FREDLEY: You mean the guy who's my husband's psychiatrist, Dr. Fredley?

GLENN: Yeah. This is really Sally King, Stephen King's wife?

DR. FREDLEY: Yeah, I think it's Sally, yeah.

GLENN: It's what?

DR. FREDLEY: Sally king.

GLENN: Go ahead.

DR. FREDLEY: Listen, I probably should just call up to a national radio show and announce this but I'm thinking about leaving him. I mean, if he loses to you, you, Glenn, that guy, the guy --

GLENN: All right, listen, this is something you should take up with your husband. This is something you should take up --

DR. FREDLEY: The guy on TV, that guy?

GLENN: That guy.

DR. FREDLEY: Who wrote a book about a shirt?

GLENN: It's a sweater.

DR. FREDLEY: A book about a shirt and he's beating my husband? What am I with this guy for? You've seen him, right? Why else would I be with him? I want him to write number one best sellers.

GLENN: I believe -- you know what, may I say something? I believe his wife's first name is Tabitha.

DR. FREDLEY: Yeah, they call me --

GLENN: Hello? Okay, we got it out of our system.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
