American Horror



GLENN: How many times have you looked at movies and said nobody is that stupid. Yes, they are! Because America is in a horror movie and I feel like -- we went on this eight city tour for the book tour on Friday and Saturday. Eight cities, shook the hands of over, what, 7200 people? Shook the hands of people and I only -- I'm not kidding you. They did the math on it. It was eight people per minute, but I had a chance to actually get a feel for people, feel for this audience. You get it. It's you and me standing around going, "He's right beside the bed!" Except we're shouting, "They're already in the beltway!" They've been there for a long time, and it is the perfect storm that's coming our way. And did you see who quoted this now? Pat Buchanan has a new book out. Excerpts are on the Drudge Report. He'll be with us tomorrow. His new book comes out this week. He's calling it the perfect storm. You're not surprised by it because you've been listening to it for a while. You're sick of me saying it, but I've got to tell you, it's true and more and more people are starting to realize it. Who was it last week, Stu, that quoted the perfect storm? Do you remember who that -- we looked at each other and went, what, the perfect -- I should have trademarked that, copyrighted that. Do you remember who it was?

STU: George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg? Maybe they should have trademarked it.

GLENN: They should have done it. And so the fringes are running the country and those with just a hunger for power, a hunger for money, a hunger for agenda, anything that is really not in the best interest of We the People really have their hands around our throat. And you know what? We can still win. Again go back to the movie analogy. You know how you think that the hero is going to die but you can't kill the hero. I know how this movie ends. This doesn't end with the hero dying. This doesn't end with America being gone. This ends with us fighting back. This ends with us standing up, and this ends with called, "Wait a minute, you only have power because I gave you power." That's how it ends. This one ends happily ever after, if we decide to wake up and turn on the lights, let the cockroaches scurry underneath the refrigerator and then all of us take some Raid and we pull that refrigerator out and we kill the cockroaches. I'm sorry. We should set them free. Should we set them free? Yes, let's set them free because they're, hey, cockroaches play a role, too. They are part of the planet ecosystem.

By the way, I can't wait to tell you, I can't wait to tell you the woman who wanted to be sterilized, had an abortion, then wanted to be sterilized. No doctor would do it. Finally she got sterilized. She gets a card from her boyfriend, is it her boyfriend or her husband. "You know, hey, congratulations; this is the four-year anniversary of you killing your unborn kid." She did it for the planet because having children is selfish and if we could just get rid of all the people on the planet, the planet would survive. Oh, okay, good.

You know the thing I like about my car? I don't know if you're like this at all. If I could just stop driving it, if I could just get rid of all the people around my car, it would last forever. Be great. If I could just kill all the people in the mall parking lot, I'd never have a ding in my door. Wouldn't that be great? We should just let all the people in mall parking lots die so I don't have a ding in my door. Jeez, for the love of Pete, who controls who? Which is more important?

So now the Democrats don't know what to say, and the reason why the Democrats don't know what to say is because they don't even know who they are. And again, Democrats, I don't want to come off -- if you're a Democrat, please understand I believe the same thing about the Republicans. They don't know who they are. And you know what, Republicans? You better find out quick or you have no chance of winning and then you leave us in hell. You sold your soul to the devil. The Republicans are the new Democrats. The Republicans have moved over and, you know, they're not even JFK Democrats. They've moved over so far left that they are the Democrats that Ronald Reagan threw out of office. That's who the Republicans have become. The Democrats have become -- you know, wake up to this one. The Democrats have become socialists. I think they're still in denial. I think the majority of Democrats are like, "No, I mean, no, we still have -- we're just using them for fuel." No, no, you're not controlling the extreme left anymore; they're controlling you. And the extreme left and the extreme right, trouble, real trouble because they're anarchists and you just, they don't necessarily have the same vision for America that you and I do. And because the Democrats don't know who they are, it makes them say things like, "I voted for the war." And then when it's successful, "Yes, I voted for the war. Yeah, go, troops, we're behind you! This is going well, yes!" And then when it starts to go poorly, "No, whoa, that's a problem. Well, I was for the war before I was against it but now I'm against it because we're not doing this war right. I wish that President would get rid of Rumsfeld." He did. "Well, Rumsfeld wasn't the problem. What the real problem was is he's not listening to the commanders. We need a change of course." Okay. Hang on. What? He listened to the commanders and he wants to increase? What? "Well, don't listen to those commanders increasing the troops. That's crazy. That will never work! That will never work. It's -- what, it's working? No, it's not. No matter what they say, they're lying to you. It's not working. Let's wait until the report." And then, "Huh? Report's out. Well, General Betrayus, he's betrayed you the. There's probably something weird with that -- huh? The Euro? Yeah. Nothing wrong with the report, either? It's even better now than when the report came out? Well, it is working! It is clearly working because it's working but it's not working because where's the political process and the progress? Where is... where is... we shouldn't have gone in in the first place!"

I actually heard a Democrat say today the surge is clearly working but that's not victory. Well, what is victory? Victory is when we come home. Oh, okay. I thought you were screaming the whole time define victory. For years I heard you define what a win is. If you knew the answer, why didn't you say then? If you knew that was the answer, and I mean, I think that one's pretty obvious. Yeah. I mean, you know, World War II, when we won, when the place was secure, we did come home. Well, no, wait a minute. No, we didn't.

That's weird. I don't know what position anybody holds anymore. I don't know if you're for it or against it. I don't know if you're for higher taxes or lower taxes. I don't know if you're for earmarks or against earmarks. I don't even know what earmarks are. When did they go from pork barrel spending to earmarks? You know what? Let me track it back even further. When did pork barrel spending stop being bribes? I'd like a politician that's against a bribe and that's exactly what they are. You've got special interests bribing the politicians. You have the politicians bribing their constituents. They're bribes! Let's stop with the earmark thing. Didn't they just rename them again, Stu? I heard somebody say that last week, that they are renaming -- they are not even earmarks now, that they are thinking about renaming them again. Can we stop? Happy holidays. Stop renaming things. It's Christmas. It's got Christ right in the name. Earmarks are bribes. Let's just be clear.


On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
