Time Person of the Year



GLENN: I don't know if I can do it because I know the answer! I know the answer who the person of the year is going to be. Come on! Who could Time magazine appoint person of the year? Who is it going to be? You know the answer. There's only one possibility. Come on. Say it with me. Al Gore.

You know it's going to be Al Gore. It's going to be Al Gore, it's going to be, who is it Brian Williams nominated? Oh, this makes me want to vomit. Brian Williams, veteran journalist. Of course, he has a really good sense of humor. So maybe he was joking. Brian Williams said, my nominee for 2007 person of the year is a woman, a woman with a history of abuse, a woman who's never run for elective office, someone we all know, someone who makes her presence known on a daily basis in all of our lives and for my money is better than any male alternative. That woman is Mother Earth. You've got to go kidding me, right? This is Brian Williams saying this? "A woman who has a history of abuse." Yeah, she's been vomiting hot lava on people forever. Oh, he meant the other way around. "She's never run for elective office." No. "Someone we all know, makes her presence known on a daily basis." Yeah. Yeah, by earthquakes. "For my money, better than any male alternative." We don't have another choice now, do we, Brian? I've got to tell you, if Father Earth put up a little parallel Earth some place else, I might want to check it out. I want to see what the dude's got going on. You know what I'm saying? Might make a little more sense on that planet.

Go ahead and print it....

You know it's going to be something -- I hate those copouts, too. Mother Earth. Oh. Who did they nominate last year? Oh, I remember. You. You're the person of the year because you buy a lot of crap on the Internet. So you're important. Yes, you are. You are! And now Mother Earth. Could we get some actual people involved? I hate to break it to you, but it's called the person of the year, not the thing of the year, not the planet of the year. And I got news for you. I think the planet of the year should be Saturn. Got a lot of cool rings and stuff, unless that's Uranus. I just wanted to say that on the air (laughing) because I'm 12! Person of the year, Mother Earth. Brian Williams, it makes me want to never watch you again, not that I am watching you because I don't notice when I stop watching you but I ain't watching you, but that's a different story. I can threaten it! And I like Brian Williams, too. He's funny... looking! And I said Uranus!

Aretha Franklin says, there are a number of people who truly deserve this award. However, Bill Cosby is my selection. Wait a minute, hold it. This one might make sense. Bill Cosby is my selection because of his work and involvement in the crisis of the African-American community. Bill's objectives are to alleviate some of the problems and issues facing the community today. Yes! Holy cow. He truly represents a universality and global brotherhood -- oh, can we stop with the global talk? In his heart and soul he cares deeply about people. Aretha, R-E-S-P-E-C-T yeah, right back at you, Retha.

John Kerry, Democratic senator from Massachusetts who ran for President against George W. Bush -- that's the way they said it, too. This is Time magazine. This is their deal: John Kerry, Democratic senator from Massachusetts who ran for President against George W. Bush in 2004. If this was Fusion magazine, it would say, John Kerry, Democratic senator from Massachusetts who ran for President against George W. Bush in 2004... and lost. (Laughing) Uranus. (Laughing). He said, I nominate Marine Lance Corporal James Crosby because it's the most politically correct thing I could possibly do -- I'm sorry, he didn't write that. I nominate Marine Lance Corporal James Crosby, outreach coordinator for the Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services, who reminds us what it means to keep faith with our brothers and sisters in arms. Even those brothers and sisters who maimed, tortured, put electrodes and bare wires on genitalia in the fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan. What a pile of dog crap that is.

Three years ago, a rocket attack in Iraq left James with a spinal-cord injury that put him in a wheelchair, but his spirit endures, and he carries on as an inspiration to a new generation of vets.

Uh-huh. Thanks, John. Me think you've been nipping at the catsup bottle a little too much.

Stephen King says -- that's the way they describe him. Stephen King, the author of more than 50 best selling novels, some of which have become feature films. It's Stephen King. Do I really have to put what he does after it? It's like, Jesus, who saved many, was also the Messiah. I mean, I think we get it. It's Stephen King, freak boy. He nominates, and see if anybody understands this one. He nominates Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. They symbolize the media's growing obsession with issues of personality over substance. People care more about the details of Spears' child-custody case than they do about where the billions the U.S. government has poured into Iraq have gone. I'll tell you where they've gone. Into Uranus! (Laughing.) That one didn't really work. It was not really a double meaning there. It really meant that it was in Stephen King's butt. So I apologize for that.

Who wants to -- Stu?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Who's it going to be, person of the year? By the way, we've got to do person of the year from hereon out. Our January issue of Fusion magazine needs to be person of the year.

STU: Well, you just want to copy Time essentially?

GLENN: Yeah, except we'll put the right person on.

STU: I kind of like that idea. An alternative person of the year.

GLENN: Pardon me?

STU: An alternative person of the year.

GLENN: No, it won't be an alternative, not be an alternative person.

STU: It will be alternative to what they name.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Yeah, yeah. I thought you meant somebody who was like, oh, yeah, this is great. Global warming.

STU: No, I don't think that's what it's going to be but that is what, of course, the Time person of the year is going to be, either Al Gore or Mother Earth or something of that nature.

GLENN: Can you think of anybody else?

STU: You know what a legitimate recommendation from me? General Petraeus. You've got a guy who, the surge is --

GLENN: You mean the guy who betrayed the United States of America?

STU: Well, for two reasons. I mean, obviously the surge turning around, you know, whatever, this incredible amount of improvement that has happened in the war but also he has been a big, you know, not by his intent at all but been a big political thing with the whole -- with the ads attacking him and everything else. That was another big story this year. That would be a really good one. They are never going to do it.

GLENN: No. See, here. Stu?

STU: Yes?

GLENN: He would have to beat out Mother Earth and Al Gore. Has Petraeus ever won a Nobel Peace Prize? No. Why? Part of the industrial complex, the military industrial complex.

STU: I just don't think that --

GLENN: No, no.

STU: I just think he is trying to --

GLENN: No, I don't want to hear that Al Gore was part of the administration that, you know, said that regime change has to be our policy.

STU: Well, he was only the second in command of that. He was only the vice --

GLENN: I don't think it's necessary to --

STU: And he is also the vice president with the Kyoto Treaty and they didn't ratify it.

GLENN: I got it, but let's not talk about it. Let's forget about all that.

STU: But I think it's important to --

GLENN: So Dan, who do you think it's going to be?

DAN: Glenn, just hit me. This is another big contender here in the eyes of Time. The undocumented worker.

GLENN: Ooh! That's good.

STU: I can see that.

GLENN: Yeah. All right, help me out on this one. It's got to be Al Gore. You don't win a Grammy, an Oscar, a Nobel Prize, visit the White House -- what else? What else has he done? Made a slide show, you don't have all those awards based on that slide show and not become person of the year unless you're conservative.

STU: Yeah, exactly. It's such a friendly thing, too. I mean, it just seems it's going to be obvious. I mean, they do tend to put -- they had, 2006 was you, as you said, which is just ridiculous. 2005 --

GLENN: I want to thank Time for that honor and I just want to point out to Al Gore that I was the person of the year before he was.

STU: Or at least at the same time because I think you would include him.

GLENN: It didn't say him. It said you.

STU: Yeah, but he also did create the Internet and it was about the information age. You would think that he would be included in that. I'm just saying. George Bush has won it twice.


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. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

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:
