GLENN: While everybody else is drinking Red Bull today, like there's nobody on the staff that has had more than -- I had, what, five hours sleep last night and I slept the most. Everybody, everybody else -- you haven't slept at all, have you?

STU: No, no, not, Glenn. But I'm getting that second wind in. You know it's that second wind where you realize after you sleep that you said several inappropriate things or you said sentences that did not string together in any reasonable fashion? I feel like I'm at that state.

GLENN: Oh, I know. Like kind of like the economy is not as bad as we thought it was.

STU: No, not that bad.

GLENN: It's not that bad? Oh, okay.

STU: It's like I haven't slept for months.

GLENN: Did you hear this? Barack Obama says the economy is not as bad as we thought it was. Didn't we just spend like a couple of trillion dollars? Isn't that kind of -- didn't you just tell us that if we don't do these things that the economy -- that we may not survive?

STU: Aren't you the guy who uses crisis as a pronoun? Isn't that you?

GLENN: What? We may not survive if we don't do these things; we do them -- and then it's like it isn't as bad as we thought it was. I have to tell you, congratulations because what I believe the president was saying was we've fixed this crisis. If we didn't do these things, we may not survive, but now we've done these things. It's not as bad as we thought it was.

STU: Might be time to get back into the market.

GLENN: Might be time to get back in the market. He now owns this economy and that's why I believe there's a correction coming from the White House today. This, by the way, and the, "Hey, you know, maybe you should do some stocks," both off TelePrompTer, both of them off TelePrompTer. I believe there's going to be a correction coming out today about -- because how did they do that? How does he possibly say that? By the way, I am -- you know what? Let me tell you something. My gut tells me, and I could be wrong. You know what? We may be over. This may be over. Maybe it is. I don't think so, but maybe it is. The stock market is up, oil prices are down. I mean, it's all looking good, right? We've gone up, what, 600 points? Isn't that the beginning of a rally? 600 points is the beginning of a rally. I just said earlier this week, expect a bull -- I mean, sorry, expect a bear rally, which means you haven't had the bottom but it's going to all of a sudden surge ahead. GM came out today and said that $2 billion we asked for, we may not need it, at least right now; I think we're going to be okay. CitiBank is saying, yeah, you know what, I think we're okay. I think it's Bank of America says keep your cash; we're going to be okay.

Now let me ask you this: Have we been lied to or are we being lied to now? Let me ask you, if you think this is a possibility, what I gave to you on Monday was expect a bear rally. Expect all of a sudden the stock market to go up for no reason. And I -- boy, I don't know if this is the bear rally, but the stock market going up for no reason, that would be today. They will point to, "Hey, well, CitiBank made some profit." Excuse me? We haven't even hit the real estate bubble yet. We haven't -- I mean, for the commercial properties. There are so many things yet to hit. So CitiBank, you know, "We're fine." Nobody all of a sudden, nobody needs the money. Everybody's going to be doing okay. You're going to start to see the suckers get back into this, into this stock market. And maybe I'm the sucker. I mean, you do your own homework. Maybe I'm the sucker because you can't ever call the bottom. And maybe that was the bottom and so everybody puts their money back in. But remember what Jim Rogers said to me last week when I said, "What should people do." He said wait for a rally. Let your money go up and then pull it out. When that happens -- because I don't believe that there are -- I believe there are people in there now that will take their money out when they say, "I just doubled my money since last week." And I mean big investors will take their money out because nothing makes sense.

Did you hear what the premier of China said? This is not some, you know, banking guy, you know, the Barney Frank of China. This is their president. This is the premier of China. I've got to quote this to you. He said, quote: We have made huge amounts of loans to the United States. Of course we're concerned about the safety of our assets. To be honest, I'm a little worried. I'd like to call on the United States to honor its words and stay a credible nation and ensure the safety of the Chinese assets.

Let's take this apart here. We made huge amounts of loans. He's now saying that we're loaning the money, not buying treasuries. It's no longer that they are buying our treasuries as an asset. This is huge in diplomatic language. He has changed from "We're buying an asset" to calling a spade a spade: We're buying debt. We're helping them. So we're making huge loans to the United States and we're worried about our assets. To be honest, I'm a little bit worried. Then he says, I'd like to call on the United States.

Now put yourself in an Asian frame of mind. These are the people that are like, oh, my gosh, did I eat the last french fry? And they kill themselves. You know, they're like, I didn't mean to dishonor you, I didn't know you wanted that last french fry. I didn't even think. I'm sorry (making choking sounds). Honor is what this -- Stu, you think that's over the top? You think that's a bit extreme?

STU: I --

GLENN: You don't think they've done that?

STU: I think what you're saying is they take honor seriously.

GLENN: I'm just sayin'. Haven't you ever done that where your wife has gone, what, you just ate the last french fry? And you're like, honey, I'm sorry, I didn't even think; get over it. That ain't happening in China, Japan.

STU: No. You just fall immediately on your fork. (Laughing)

GLENN: (Laughing). What a snob, you're eating french fries with a fork. Okay, so anyway, honor is what this is all about. He says I'd like to call on the United States to honor its words, stay a credible nation. Now listen to this: And ensure the safety of Chinese assets. This is wildly important for three reasons: One, this puts our T-bills, our treasury bills at stake. What does this -- what is the rest of the world going to say when China says this? Two, he's setting us up in case we go down. We're going to be lucky to be quarantined. We are going to become the world's pariah. We are going to be the ones that tore everybody down because we weren't living an honorable life. We were responsible for it. Honor its words and stay a credible nation and ensure the safety of the Chinese assets. He's saying to the Chinese people, "If we lose these assets, it's because of these people over here. They have dishonored us and they have destroyed your assets." The third thing is this is a very powerful statement on the eve of the G20 summit. The guy who is the Nobel Laureate behind the Euro, the guy who said the Euro is a good idea, we can unite everybody together under the Euro, he's just now come out and said the time has come for a global currency. Countries are starting to come onto that bandwagon: Time for a global currency. China has already asked for a global currency. This means our dollar will be over because we're the global currency right now. This is moving us into a direction that, well, you know what? Nevermind. Things aren't as bad as we thought they were. We got that from the president last night. So -- and maybe he's right.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
