STU: May I be the first InTrade, trade sports, the site where you can predict events.


GLENN: Yes.

STU: And say that you are not going to be because I'm looking at your face right now and you look like the guy, the guest on the show last night, David did before he collapsed.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: What is happening to you?

GLENN: I don't know. I may have what he had. I mean, because his

STU: And I'm in the same room.

GLENN: His son had something and he said it just overcame him and then yesterday, I mean, if anybody saw the TV show last night, or if you happen to go on the Drudge Report, it's on the front page, two different stories on the guy who just passes out in the middle of he's standing there. We're having a conversation and he says to me, "I'm going to pass out."

STU: He whispers it. You can hear him whisper it in the background.

GLENN: I'm going to pass out. You are having a conversation, there's a lot going on in your head. You are doing a television show and I'm like, okay, what did he just say? And then he says, I'm going to pass out. And I'm thinking, is that a bad joke?

STU: Right. Because you are talking about a very dramatic financial event and you're talking about all these things falling on top of each other, all this increased pressure.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And it was almost like he was making a joke about what he was talking about.

GLENN: Yeah, but then he starts to get really wobbly. He says, I'm going to pass out. I think he says it the third time, I'm going to pass out. And he says it quietly like he's just trying to, "I'm going to pass out."

STU: He wanted to say it fast so no one would notice.

GLENN: So nobody notices you. He started to get a little wobbly and that's when you could see it in my face, wait a minute, he's going to pass out. And he said, hang on, David, do you need a chair? And he was like, I'm gone. Here, give me your hand. And he just fell down. I grabbed him by the arm. But what was so scary is what you don't see here is because they were in the control room and they were like, go to break, do to break, go to break. They couldn't go to break because it is a network break. And finally I looked up and I said, can we we're going to take a break. Can I get some help here? They finally went to a break because the executive producer was like, break! I don't care. Break! We've got a guy on the floor. And what happened is nobody moved in the studio because they didn't know if it was real or not.

STU: Right. Because it did seem like, almost like he was commenting on the story.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But obviously, you know, when he fell, I think it was apparent.

GLENN: I wish, I wish you could have seen. I have never I tell you, it put a chill down my spine.

STU: Not up your leg.

GLENN: No. Put a chill down my spine when I saw him because David is a friend of mine.

STU: Yeah. Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And I didn't know if he was prone to seizures or something. But when he fell down, you know, I kind of eased him down flat on the ground, and I think I don't know if I said, "David, are you okay" before or after I said "Go to break," but I looked at him and he was his eyes were open, wide open, and he was just staring at the floor. And we went to break and I said, "David, David, are you there," and I shook him. And I'm like, "David, are you okay?" And he didn't move, he didn't react, he didn't blink, nothing. And I started to move him a bit because I wanted to make sure. I didn't know if he was having a seizure and I wanted to make sure he didn't have his tongue caught or anything like that. And then all of a sudden, boom, it was like his body just turned on again.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And he said, okay, okay, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I don't know what that was. And I'm like, "Just sit down."

STU: That actually happens to me. All throughout my, like childhood, my teenage years especially. It seems to have stopped a while ago but, like, that used to happen to me all the time. When I would, like like I could feel it. You could feel it coming. I bet it's the exact same thing that I used to have because I remember one time I used to just run and just jump on the couch when I knew it was coming so I would basically I just passed out for, like, 30 seconds and then I'd be fine. And one time I was running towards my couch and I realized my mom was lying on the couch. So I couldn't jump on the couch. So I just took two steps to my left, full standing position, just collapsed. I've never seen, I've never seen my mom's face look like this before. When I woke up, you know, she had this incredibly panicked look at me. And I, you know, I just started laughing because to me, it happened a hundred million times. She thought I was kidding. But it's scary when that happens. You are gone.

GLENN: Yeah. I talked to him last night and I said, David, are you all right? He called me because we sent him to the hospital right away.

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: And he said, yeah. He said, there's nothing wrong. He said, I just, I think I have this, you know, bug. And it made me feel good because he said it was a stomach bug and there next to the story on the Drudge was a story about some sort of new stomach virus that antibiotics can't cure, die from it, whatever. And but, you know, he went to the hospital. And David is such a nice guy. As soon as he got up, he started apologizing: Glenn, I am so sorry, I am so sorry. I just, I'm so sorry. And all the way out, I'm like, David, relax, man. But you know what's amazing to me is I know that he's probably gone onto Drudge and seen it. He told me last night, he said, jeez, I get home, my wife says, you know, it's on the front page of Drudge Report. I said, uh huh. He said, everybody I know has called me. He said, you know, I just didn't I'm sorry to embarrass you. And I said, David, you didn't embarrass me. I said, I know you didn't get up in the morning and go, gee, I'd like to be on the front page of Drudge, you know, for passing out. And he said, no, this is really not a good thing for me, you know, to be there.

You know what's worse? Have you been there? Have you seen, have you clicked on the story, Stu?

STU: No, not on the story.

GLENN: Click on the story and read the comments.

STU: Oh, on the YouTube page?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. "Yeah, well, that's just because, you know, Glenn Beck, blah, blah blah, blah blah." Is there any compassion? Is there any compassion, at all, any? I feel like page after page after page before you find somebody that says, gee, I hope he's okay. I mean, it's amazing to me. Can people not get past politics, can they not get past things?

STU: Yeah, and there's that race to be sort of cold on stuff like this because, like, every you know, it's like the old stories of, like, how fast, you know, the jokes develop after, like, you know, the Challenger tragedy and all that stuff. And it's like people would now race, especially on the Internet. Like you want to be the first one to have the wise ass comment about and, like, they just can't stop themselves anymore. That is completely out of control. There's no, there's no they are right, there's no compassion.

GLENN: We were talking yesterday. I was driving home and I found out, you know, that it was on the front page of Drudge and everything else and that it was just like, you know, zooming around the Internet. And I felt bad for David. And Chris, a friend of mine said, you know, Glenn, this just shows the difference between, you know, this show and the show you did before. Said, what do you mean? Said, well, Jesus could have come back on your show, you know, on Headline and nobody would have reported. We could have put up press releases: Jesus came back, talked to Glenn, spent a full hour. It was Jesus. Whatever.

STU: We actually have the audio, Glenn, if you want it here.

GLENN: I don't

STU: Well, I think it's it is unbelievable. I mean, there is that sort of no but it is that sort of like, oh, my god, I can't believe I just saw that happen.

GLENN: I didn't know what to do. How do you did you see it, Stu? Did you watch it live?

STU: I didn't watch it live. I saw it it was on every website in America within 10 seconds after it happened.

GLENN: It was amazing. You know what how did you think I felt I just, I didn't know I mean, you watch it now and I'm like, the guy is going to pass out. What are you doing, Beck? You know what I mean?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But I was you could see it in my face. Have you seen the part where I'm looking, I'm talking to him and I'm kind of looking at him like, what are you tying to say to me? You know, I'm trying to keep the show going and everything and also trying to evaluate: Oh, wait a minute; something new is happening; this isn't part of the plan.

STU: Yeah, I actually e mailed you. I don't know if you saw it. But again it's the last thing you think of after something like that happens but I thought you handled it well. What are you going to do? You know, you grab the guy's arm and you let him down as easy as you can and you go to break and then you deal with it. There's really nothing more you can do in that situation. It really is

GLENN: I was surprised that we were still on the air. I mean, I look up at the cameras and I see him go down and I look up at the cameras and there's a monitor underneath each of the lenses on the cameras. And so I look up at the camera and I'm like, we're still on. Can we go to a break? Can we have a let's have a timeout just for a second. Just for a second.

STU: Yeah, but you get to that place really fast where it's just everyone makes fun of it. There's a clip that's somewhat famous on the Internet of this news guy, and he's filling in for someone and he's telling the story about a brutal murder and so he says something to the effect of, "Hi, I'm Bill Thompson. Jim is out tonight. He was brutally murdered on the side of the street." And what he's trying to separate is he's off tonight. The next story starts: He was brutally murdered.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: It's so funny. Everyone's making these comments, it's a classic YouTube. But this guy, Jimmy Frezghi was actually murdered. The story was true, it was a horrible murder. I always call it Jimmy Frezghi syndrome. You completely ignore this guy was murdered because this clip was funny on the news.

GLENN: You know Steve Doocy and I were talking and he came in this morning and they had to play this clip and he said, you know, how is David, blah, blah, blah. I said, fine. I said, have you ever had anything like this happen before? And Steve said he was interviewing somebody, I think it was in Wichita, some place in Kansas, and he said guy drops dead of a heart attack right in the middle.

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Yeah. I said, how many guests have you killed lately, Doocy, hmmm?


 

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.
