GLENN: By the way, can you imagine a country where the government regularly checks on the waistline of you? If you are over 40, I need to check your waist. Excuse me? If you are deemed too fat by the government, you are required to take diet counseling. If you fail to lose sufficient weight, you could face further "Reeducation" and you'll be subject to stiff fines. Now, this is when I think -- this is what I say is coming if we get government healthcare. Because they have a good case. If we're going to take care of you, you have to take care of yourself. If we're going to go out and put out in the pocket, you've got to take care of yourself. And "Put the fries down for you. Not good for you, fatty-fat-fatso. Get on that treadmill or no healthcare for you." And a lot of Americans will say that's good. A lot of Americans will say, "Oh, that's great." A lot of Americans will also say that will never happen, we'll never get into that situation. We're just going to get free healthcare and it will be exactly the way it is right now. Glenn is always reeducation camps, please. I'm going to go for diet counseling and then they are going to force me to get onto a treadmill. It's actually what's happening now in Japan and the Japanese government argues exactly the argument that I have been saying is coming and that is we're paying for the healthcare costs. The British government has banned television ads for eggs on the grounds that they are promoting an unhealthy lifestyle. Egg sellers, you don't have the right to advertise. You're cigarettes. In New Zealand a Welsh submarine cable specialist was banned from entering the country on grounds that his obesity would impose significant costs on New Zealand's health or special education services. So he was not allowed to immigrate to New Zealand until he lost weight. But his wife couldn't lose the weight and so she couldn't get in. Germany, citizens who failed to cooperate are branded as antisocial for costing the government billions of dollars or Euros in medical expenses. So they found yet another demon: The fat people. By the way, I'm only bringing this up because have you looked at us lately? Have you seen how fat we are? Drudge Report said that most Americans, the obese Americans now outnumber the overweight Americans. You can't be a burden to society. Many American cities are now banning restaurants from selling foods with transfats. Los Angeles has proposed a moratorium on new fast food restaurants in south LA. Other California cities banned smoking in private residence. California has outlawed after school as a part of zero-tolerance ban on selling sugar products at a campus. David Paterson, the governor of New York, has proposed an 18% tax on sugar sodas and juice drinks. Appeared that's not in schools. That's everywhere. 18% tax. And state officials have not ruled out additional taxes on cheeseburgers and other foods deemed unhealthy. By the way, I just had the best cheeseburger. Stu, have you seen the cheeseburger that we've been sending out for lately? It's from, like --

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Good Burger?

STU: That's the biggest hamburger I've ever seen in my life.

GLENN: It is the best hamburger I've ever had. Is that a chain outside of New York?

STU: I don't know if it's outside of New York, but I'm thinking it might be a chain.

GLENN: Oh, Stu, you're a stupid vegetarian. This is worth getting sick over and wretching.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Oh, so good. Good Burger, can you look it up?

STU: Yeah, it's Good Burger NY. So I would assume it is a New York franchise.

GLENN: Unbelievable. We should send these to listeners. We'll just send you a cheeseburger in the mail. You know, Louie's Lunch is the inventor of the hamburger in New Haven. This is the only thing that I can even put in that category. It's that good.

STU: Really?

GLENN: It's that good.

STU: There are five locations, all of them in New York City. Sorry, rest of the world.

GLENN: Well, capitalism, until they shut you down because of obesity and global warming and, you know, you have to pay for that cow tax, you should have one of these. You should go into the Good Burger business. You should get a franchise because they are fantastic. Or you should just do what I do and just go eat them and just get just fat as a house.

 

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
