Santa 109.9 FM

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Santa 109.9, all your Christmas music all the time, warming your holiday hearts and hearths with Christmas music all season long. You know, I just wanted to take a minute and remind you for listening to Santa 109.9 that this isn't about shopping and mistletoe. We at Santa 109.9 want to take a moment to ask you to take a moment that Christmas is a celebration that's something very special, celebration of the birth of Jesus and even if you're not a Christian, everybody can come together and celebrate the spirit of selflessness, giving and charity that the life of Jesus embodied. All right. Back to all your favorite Christmas music and merry Christmas from Santa 109.9.

(Music playing).

GLENN: Hello?

STU: Are you kidding me?

GLENN: Hotline. Who is this?

STU: This is the program director. Are you kidding me with that?

GLENN: With what?



The Glenn Beck Christmas Tour begins December 1st...

STU: Did I interrupt your prayers or something? I'm sorry for calling.

GLENN: What are you talking about?

STU: Did you just say the word Jesus on the air?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: On the radio you did that?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Are you trying to get us to lose our license?

GLENN: What are you talking about? Jesus, you know, has a little something to do with the holiday that we're playing all the Christmas music. I thought it might be actually nice to acknowledge.

STU: Are you crazy? Have you ever heard of the separation of church and state?

STU: Hold on just a second. We're not a church and we're not a state. So -- 

STU: Just go online and read the Declaration of Independence and maybe you'll understand.

GLENN: The separation of church and state isn't in the Declaration of Independence, it's not in the Constitution, it's not in any federal document. Hang on just a second. What song is that?

Santa 109.9, all your favorite Christmas music all season long. By the way, I just want to make a note here. A minute ago I apparently made a mistake. I'm told now that Christmas has nothing to do with a baby being born. It's all about you and your family buying as much crap as possible and ignoring your family, you know, to go back to the malls on December 26 and return all the crap that they just bought on Black Friday. It's Santa 109.9.

(Music playing)

GLENN: All right. Are you there?

STU: That was not funny.

GLENN: You're right. I'm just making a point on how ridiculous you are.

STU: Can you still dump the audio feed?

GLENN: No, I can't.

STU: There's another FCC violation on our tabs.

GLENN: FCC violation, what do you mean an FCC violation.

STU: You just said the C word on the air.

GLENN: If I said the C word, my wife would come in from the other side of the planet and shoot necessity in the face.

STU: I just heard it.

GLENN: Christmas is now offensive?

STU: Of course it is. It's those that celebrate Kwanzaa, and Lent, too.

GLENN: What was the one before Lent?

STU: You're going to ask me to repeat that one? Out of all of them, up me to repeat that one?

GLENN: I've never heard. This is a Christmas music station. How can I not say Christmas on a Christmas music station?

STU: Just massage it.

GLENN: What do you mean massage it?

STU: You are the professional. Just massage it a little bit. Do your magic. If I can it out. Geez.

GLENN: Well, merry holiday here at Santa 109.9. Well, boys and girls, remember it's that time of year again when jolly old St. Nick comes down the chimney and brings you all sorts of December 25th presents and puts them underneath the winter tree and it's great. And all the winter traditions that we all are talking about and remembering so fondly now. Hey, and don't forget, leave Santa, you know, leave Santa a little chocolate chip cookie or something, a little milk to say thank you, Santa, we're thinking about you.

Now more music about snow and presents here on Santa 109.9.

(Music playing).

All right, I've got to tell you this is ridiculous.

STU: Hey, why not just throw in the musics about snow, presents and candy canes.

GLENN: Unbelievable. What are you -- 

STU: We've got a major problem here.

GLENN: What do you mean we've got a major. You are right we have a major problem. My boss doesn't let me say a word on Christmas on a Christmas music station.

STU: Huh? Oh, no, no, not that. I'm talking about the complaint calls.

GLENN: What are you -- 

STU: From the parents about how you are encouraging obesity in children.

GLENN: What are you talking about?

STU: You might as well talk about candy canes, you are leaving out milk and cookies for Santa?

GLENN: It's Christmas. That's what you do. Christmas, kids eat cookies at Christmas, candy canes. You put them on the tree. You eat them all Christmas. That's what you do as a kid.

STU: That's child abuse.

GLENN: Child abuse?

STU: Did you know that every one third of a second, 500,000 children die from prepackaged candy or baked good-related obesity in our state alone?

GLENN: No, they don't. Where did you get that stat?

STU: This guy. Look, I need you to go back and retract that last statement.

GLENN: Retract what statement?

STU: Just say you're sorry for what you did and present some healthy alternative. Smooth it over.

GLENN: Hold on just a second.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: It's Santa 109.9 FM and I'd like to take a minute here to apologize for killing so many innocent children at this time of year. I didn't realize thousands of children die because of this holiday and so instead of candy canes this winter solstice, you might want to try slightly bending a celery stalk for the kids. They will enjoy it. It's fun. Perhaps maybe leave Santa a little soy milk, broccoli nuggets, not deep fried, glass of organic skim milk maybe instead of the cookies so that -- two glasses of milk and broccoli. And don't forget to drive to the store and get Santa a get-well card for his upcoming stomach stapling surgery because he's fat. It's Santa 109.9.

Hey, PC idiot?

STU: Yeah?

GLENN: Do you realize that half the songs I play say Christmas in the song?

STU: Yeah, but people don't listen to lyrics of these songs. How do you think we get away with marketing gangster rap to 12-year-olds?

GLENN: That's a good point.

STU: It's easy. Don't talk about Christmas or in any circumstance insult a second place women's basketball team and you should be fine.

GLENN: I understand that one.

STU: Look. Now all you have to do is understand how you are killing the planet.

GLENN: Wait a minute. I'm sorry. What? I'm killing the planet?

STU: You just told people to drive to the store and get Santa a card. Have you seen an Inconvenient Truth?

GLENN: Oh, no, don't get into the Inconvenient Truth.

STU: Did you know that two graphs have moved at relatively the same direction for over 100 years? Were you aware that every time you turn on a light bulb, seven parrots slit their throat in Australia with their beaks. Did you know every time you start an automobile, 14 llamas contract HIV.

GLENN: What is the point of the call?

STU: I think you know the point. We can all make a difference. Every radio station and television station across America can do something for the environment like changing their logo to green or talking about things that grow.

GLENN: I don't -- 

STU: Or turning off your heat in the coldest months to save CO2 emissions and lower the population.

GLENN: Okay, all right. Would you do me a favor?

STU: Yeah, yeah, of course.

GLENN: I want you to listen this to next break.

STU: Is it going to be about the environment?

GLENN: I want you to just listen to this next break because I think it's everything that you dream.

STU: Oh, this is great.

GLENN: I think this is going to be something that you are going to really -- 

STU: Because I was watching TV and they old me that I can do something to help the environment. I can't wait to hear it. It's going to be really good.

GLENN: Hang on. I think the record's about over.

STU: Sounds like it's about in the middle. Are you just talking in the middle?

GLENN: Because somebody didn't write enough material to hold the whole song.

STU: Material to hold the song?

GLENN: Hold on. Here it is. Santa 109.9, and merry Christmas. Today we're playing Christ music all day long. Well, it's Christmas music but Christ is the first part of Christmas which is weird that we pronounce it. It must have been really early politically correct stuff, but merry Christmas and here's all the music to celebrate the birth of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ who died for the sins of the world. Ain't that great? Huh? Also we celebrate our time with our families and we get together and we do all kinds of great traditions like eating cookies and candy canes and we celebrate with a big fat man that comes into our house with a big carbon emitting sleigh and eats big huge fat chocolate chip cookies and drinks good old whole milk, not even skim milk. It came out of a glass bottle. And not even a recycled glass bottle. A glass bottle that after Santa drinks the whole milk in the glass bottle, we take it and we throw it in the fireplace! We just shatter the glass bottle for no apparent reason! That's right. So hear me loud and clear. It's not ha, ha, ha, it's ho, ho, ho. Merry Christmas from Santa 109.9.

VOICE: For most the holidays are a time of celebration to come together with your fellow man. However, not everyone has such a joyous holiday. That's why your friends at the big frog and Santa 109.9 have put together a special phone number. If you find yourself in a state of depression this holiday season, please call and talk to one of our celebrity counselors like Flap Jackson, Fluffy McNugget and Rowdy Rank Musterson. Get kind words from one of your friends here at Santa 109.9 who remind you this holiday season, don't kill yourself.

END TRANSCRIPT

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:
