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.

 

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.
