Glenn Beck: Porn, yes..NYT no

GLENN: We're just trying to make a list. Chris, help us out on this. We're just trying to make a list because I told you before that I think the newspapers are going to get a bailout because I mean, they've already got the precedent. It's PBS. And we see how well that works. There's no conflict of interest there. And newspapers are falling apart and they're going to be too big and important to fail. That's free speech. That's a free press. That's a cornerstone. We don't have free press. We've got to have that. The government will absolutely come in and bail these things out and then they will have the free press, not so free anymore, right in their back pockets. The only ones that won't be bailed out will be talk radio -- mark my words: Media will get bailouts because it's too important, but talk radio will get more restrictions. They will try to kill the only thing that will actually stand up against the government. They will try to kill that, but they will help things like the New York Times, MSNBC through GE. Are you kidding me? That's a no-brainer.

All right. So now here's the latest bailout. The porn industry. The porn industry is coming to Washington. They are saying they want a bailout because times are tough. And I would say they have fallen on hard times but that's a different story and a different show, quite honestly. So things are tough and they are losing money and they really need -- there are just so many -- oh, it's really, it's very tough to do this story. My head's hurting from all the stuff I'm editing out right now, all the great jokes. Okay, so -- Stu, will you please do this? Just take this story for just a second, please? Just tell this story in a straight way because I don't think I'm capable of doing it. It's hurting. It is. See, I've got a joke there.

STU: We need to bail out, out of this story.

GLENN: Okay, so here's the thing. So I was thinking about this story about government bailout of the porn industry and I'm thinking, why not? Who are you to judge? What? You're going to -- all those college women? Oh, my gosh, how horrible of you. They're working, they're struggling. Some of them are working hard and... so anyway, here you have all of these poor people that are just doing what they can just to make ends... I can't even -- so then you have the government saying we can't do that, and you know that Obama is looking for the best bang for the...

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: All right. So anyway, that led me to... what? I think you can't make the case against it because what's the difference between porn and the New York Times? I don't think there's any difference. Tell me, you read the New York Times; you read pornography. You feel dirty after doing both, don't you?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Pornography, not my values. New York Times, not my values.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Same credibility on stories about politicians, in porn and in the New York Times. I have to stop there because I can't think of any that I can actually say on the air now. But I think they are the same.

STU: Well, more people use it online. I think that goes for both.

GLENN: More people use it online.

STU: Right?

GLENN: That's why they're both struggling.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Because people can get their news in another way.

STU: There are differences though, I think. Like I think when you throw out, when you're done with porn, you stash it under the bed. You put it in your sock drawer. When you're done with the Times, it goes in the fireplace or it goes down the trash chute. Porn, as far as I know, porn has never given out a troop location.

GLENN: So now you are making the case that porn may actually be better than the New York Times. That may be a better investment than the New York Times.

STU: Yeah, I think so. I mean, is there --

GLENN: Never sold out, I don't know any pornographer or any -- I just model, what do you call -- any --

STU: An entertainer.

GLENN: Any entertainers that have sold our country out. In fact, they are entertaining the troops. The New York Times like -- I mean, the troops like porn more than they like the New York Times. If I sent a package over to many of the troops and they opened them up and I sent them the New York Times, would they think, what the hell am I even fighting for? Now, if I did that with porn, a lot of them would say, "I know what I'm fighting for." If I sent porn over to the Middle East, would it make the enemy crazy nut job if they intercepted that package, opened it up and it was a bunch of porno magazines? Yes. If I sent them a bunch of New York Times and they open it up, you know, and it was like Hamas opening it up, it would be like, "Oh, no, they need to receive this," they would forward it on.

STU: So you are saying mail delivery in the Middle East, it is more -- yeah, I think.

GLENN: I think porn shows much more of an enemy.

STU: I think this is a fairly good --

GLENN: I think we should make the case that the porn should get the bailout but the newspapers should not. Okay, common sense. We've solved yet another problem in America. Porn lives; the New York Times dies.


Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
