GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the Glenn Beck program. May name is coincidentally enough Glenn Beck. That's why they hired me for this program. Here is what I I hope you were listening last hour and I said please call all your friends. Make sure they gather around the radio because I, for the first time in I don't know how long, I see an actual light at the end of the tunnel. I'll be real honest with you, and I've never lied to you, but I will be real honest with you. The 9/12 Project was a grasp for me. I know that you are the secret. I know that you are the answer. I know that you are the answer to the economy, you are the answer to the end of corruption. You are the answer. And I'm going to share with you something that I read in this old novel written by one of the chief progressives back in the early 1900s and it says everything. It says why we're in this predicament and it's because too many of us, me included just, you know, they will deal with it; I'm busy; I got other things to do. And I know when you're involved, I know when the American people want to rally and step to the plate and save their country, they will. But quite honestly, you know what, it's like this: I know that there is a politician out there. I knew all last election this is the best we can do? This isn't the best we can do. And then I met Sarah Palin. Oh, my gosh. Now, she may not be the one that should be the president. I don't know. But she gave me great hope that somebody is out there doing it and doing it right and gets it! So I've been trudging along saying, hey, we're going to make it, we're going to make it and we've got to get together. But I hadn't seen the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to see just tunnel and more tunnel. Where's the light at the end of the tunnel? Where is someone with a torch that says, come on, this way! I just knew we had to stay together. Oh, I am here to tell you I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Last hour when I started to describe this and said get all your friends together, make sure they are listening to this next hour, it's like a zombie movie. This hour let me tell you that what we're living in right now is the matrix. If you saw the movie The Matrix, what we are living in right now, it doesn't make sense. It doesn't even feel real. It feels like we're watching a movie, and it has for a long time. It's not about Barack Obama. It's about Barack Obama and George Bush and Bill Clinton and George H. W., it's been going on forever. And it doesn't seem right, and we're arguing about things that we shouldn't be arguing about and they just, it's a play, and we are pawns and we've finally gotten to the place now to where we can look at each other and go, oh, my gosh, yeah! We denied it for a long time.

The independents of this country are growing by leaps and bounds. They are growing faster than the Republicans are going down and faster than the Democrats are going down. But you combine how many people are dissatisfied with the Democrats with the number of people who are dissatisfied with the Republicans and you have the going up number of independents. It is like take the red pill or the blue pill. Do you want to live in the matrix? Do you want to keep playing this game, or do you want to wake up knowing that once you wake up, it's going to be a tough battle and it is going to be a battle to the end.

There is software that is running. It is called the progressive, the early 20th century progressive movement. It is software. It is software if I have time later, I have to explain. What I realized last night, finally something else clicked into my mind on the stress test. I know why it happened. I get it now. It's part of this software, and it's creating this illusion. It's why you feel there's no choice, why every time you're electing somebody, you're like, okay, he's better than the other guy. Because there is no real choice! The software has designed these choices for you and it's running a program. It makes you feel like you're in charge, but you're not.

Now, what is going to there are things because what we argue on all the time is what's going to slow this down. Forget about slowing it down. That's where we've been lately: What can slow this down, what can stop this? And the only thing that you keep coming up with, if we're honest with each other, is that at some point this system and our people, our country will be so separate from their government that the people will have to rise up. That's not a good option. I've been warning you on that option. That's a bad, bad option because that leads us to France and the French Revolution: Guillotines, prisons, death, chaos. Bad.

What shuts the matrix off? What is the matrix afraid of? Where is the power source of the matrix? Unplug it. Can we just infect the software? That's one option. Or can we unplug the machine so the whole thing goes... I've told you we've got to start challenging the Constitution. We have to start challenging the government. We have to start saying, "You know what, we're going to adopt a sovereignty clauses in our states." But that was to throw the matrix up against the wall and scare them. It was like I was talking last hour, the zombies: Throw them up against the wall and hold them at bay. Scare them. Thomas Jefferson said a government, where a government is afraid of its people, there is liberty. Where the people are afraid of their government, there is tyranny. So that was, let's throw them against the wall. Instead the people of Montana and the people of Texas and the people of Utah, whoa. Texas and the mountain region and now the people in Tennessee. They've all come to the same conclusion: If we challenge the government on gun laws, specifically in this one way, if we make a gun in Texas and if it's purchased in Texas this is a Montana thing. So I should probably use Montana. If it is made in Montana, purchased in Montana and remains in Montana, there is no reason the federal government should have any regulation on that gun.

Now, that might sound ridiculous, that might sound like another attempt to throw it back, but it's not. This is an attempt to go after something that has been bothering me for about a year because when I saw that FDR you learned in history about court packing, right? FDR wanted to pack the courts. He wanted to put more justices on because he couldn't get his way on something. He then tried to say we should force these people to retire; they're too old. Because he couldn't get his way on something. Then he said, "You know what, these people are bad people and you should rise up against these Supreme Court justices," but it didn't work. It took him ten years to get what he wanted and it was a court case decided in his favor. I think it was 1941 or maybe 1942, about a farmer who just wanted to grow wheat. He was only growing wheat. He was grinding it. His wife was making bread. He wasn't selling it. He was doing it himself. The government made the case that he couldn't do that without federal regulation. It was fought in court. It was finally decided. That one case changed America. When that one case happened, now everything now you had to have certain hour workweek. Now you had to have federal regulations of hourly wages. Now the state could tell every businessman, every farm owner, every individual exactly what to do. Forget about the state. It was the State with a capital S. It changed and buried our Constitution and our founders' dream. What they're doing in Montana is challenging that, in the way that the justices have been waiting.

You've got six justices that don't like that decision. I think it might even be seven that do not like that decision from the 1940s, that think that it was a wrong decision, but they've never been willing to take it on because if they don't take it on on the right case and the people aren't involved, congress will make it worse. This is the case, but it doesn't it cannot just happen in Montana. It has to happen in all of the states, or a lot of them. Because of something called emerging consensus, this is a new thing that the Court loves: "Well, where are the people going." This is why they want the state this is the strategy for gay marriage: Get the states to pass these laws that okay gay marriage, then short circuit the system, get it kicked up to the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court is bound to look at emerging consensus and say, "This is where the states are moving; so we've got to do this." That's the new progressive way to do it. Well, if emerging consensus is state rights, specifically and I'll explain later specifically on guns, the matrix is unplugged and the power goes to the states.

I will explain this in the coming days. Next week we'll explain it. We'll explain it in the newsletter which is free. We're going to have some experts write on it. We're going to talk to the people who are doing it, why they're doing it. And on next Friday's show on television, we're going to do a full hour. We're going to assemble those experts. We're going to put them in the studio and we're going to have them explain it and give you a plan of action, but I'm telling you, I think this is one of the reasons why the 9/12 Project was put I knew keep people together, I knew grassroots, network, but somebody else I think has come up with a darn good shot at a solution. And if you look I thought, oh, there's no way. You know, Supreme Court, that's if you read two cases, and we'll get into them next week. If you read two cases, would you have got the four conservative strict constructionalist judges. You know how they're going to vote. You need five. There are two other justices who have ruled on interstate commerce clause and on the on two cases involving interstate commerce, and they have both said, "This law is wrong; it should be overturned, not on this case because it's not the right case and it's not they are reading it wrong, et cetera, et cetera. We want to overturn it. Because the gun is involved, this, America will pay attention because if they lose, now you've got the congress with full control of guns. I think it could be it. I thinking the light at the end of the tunnel. It's a two year process. But this is something that is going to distract the matrix. This is going to the matrix now is going to go, oh, crap, we've got to work on this. Because they will immediately know. I ask myself, why has this not been covered? We've been talking about it all week. Why has no one been covering this? Because they didn't get it. Believe me, this is the path, or at least one of them, and a really good shot, and it's going to be as soon as the progressive movement gets it, they are going to be telling you that there's going to be, you know, child pornography in, you know, Idaho and there's going to be guns that are bazookas and tanks, they are going to say that people are going to be enslaving children to make wooden shoes in Florida, which, maybe that's a problem with wooden shoes, they are just not cheap enough. But it takes the power of the federal government to regulate everything in your life. Dunkin' Donuts may still have to be regulated because of interstate commerce, but if you're a mom and pop store, they ain't got nothing to say about you. You don't like what they're doing in your state, move to another state. The federal government won't tell you what to do. Only your state will. It gives the power back to you. There are some constitutional scholars that believe this would reset it back to Jefferson. I don't happen to believe that. I'd like to get back, I'd like to get back to 1900 and the understanding of the Constitution and the power of the state and stop capitalizing the state when it looks at the federal government. Okay, great stuff. Pass this on. I'm going to have the e mail newsletter for you next week. Start paying attention to those stories in the newsletter. I'm going to not only going to explain it so you can send it to all your friends, but what you need to do is you need to start organizing on this. Pay attention. Learn. We'll help you do all of it. Learn. Get it into your statehouses. You've got if we could have 20 states do exactly what they've done or similar things on guns in their states, an emerging consensus, Montana is ready to short circuit the system. They go on sale in November. They have designed this system to be challenged immediately. On the first day those guns are for sale, they are going to be challenged in the court. There's a good chance it's going to be kicked up, but the Supreme Court doesn't have to take it, unless other states are also being challenged and they are kicked up into all the different circuit courts of appeals and they all start to conflict with each other. The matrix says, "Uh oh," and it has to be answered by the Supreme Court because it will all be in conflict. Risk big, win big. Risk big, lose big. But pray for those Supreme Court justices, that they all eat broccoli, that they all are on a treadmill. God save them until you can get this into court.

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.
