GLENN: I didn't watch the White House health special last night. I was at my daughter's graduation and I don't think I missed anything. I don't know if anybody saw it. I mean, whatever. It's a ‑‑ I'm not getting bogged down in it because I think it's misdirection, myself. And by the way, if anybody thought that there was something weird going on with the White House and ABC, it's not. It turns out that the director of communications for the office of White House health reform since last month is the former ABC News correspondent Linda Douglass who left journalism last year to join the Obama campaign and so that's all it is, just an ABC journalist that's, you know, there at the Obama campaign. That's no big deal. But, you know, NBC is a little upset that ABC got the gig, you know, and they have been doing all the work. They are like, wait a minute, you're redistributing the wealth here. I mean, this is ‑‑ what are you doing? We did all the work. Why should ABC get the gravy? And I guess they have a special tonight?

VOICE: Tonight on MSNBC, we told you so. You were promised a 100% pro‑Obama care special and you didn't even get 80% positive by our count. Where was the grace of his character? Where were the unadulterated compliments? Where were the oddly homo erotic comments about his amazing ads? Those liars over at ABC presented some questions that could have been seen as only neutral. Some of their softball questions bordered on hardballs and not the Chris Matthews thrill with the leg hard ball. We mean questions real journalists would ask. What is ABC doing? They act as if Barack Obama could do something wrong. Heathens, heretics, unbelievers. Tune in to MSNBC to avoid such Obama‑related sacrilege. We promise to present both sides of the story: Barack Obama's side and the evil side that will lead us all into never ending poverty, murdering helpless toddlers and guaranteeing the return of slavery. Plus, Keith Olbermann finally gets clearance to move his official residence underneath Barack Obama's desk. All tonight on MSNBC.

GLENN: You know what, I have to tell you something. Did anybody see or hear any of the clips today of the doctors that were on? You know, I was sitting there in the audience and I think he was the smartest man in the room. I actually heard that: I believe Barack Obama was the smartest man in the room. Really? What a surprise. And you were asked to go attend this at the White House. Who would have seen that coming?

I have talked to two doctors in the last two days and we've gotten around to, you know, the end of the visit of healthcare, and both of them ‑‑ and I know one of them is liberal. Both of them have said, it's going to destroy medicine. I don't know how people are going to be I don't know how people are going to be doctors anymore, we're going to have a shortage of doctors because the good ones are going to get out because they are not going to put up with it. Is it a coincidence that they are starting to back out of Medicaid now, Medicare? They are just not taking those patients anymore? People are just like, whatever, I'm just not going to do it anymore; I just don't need it. And now the government is starting to clamp down on them? You are not going to have good healthcare.

So enough said because that is a distraction because that's not what's next on the agenda. What's next on the agenda is cap and trade. I told you yesterday that one of these days you are going to wake up and, you know, America will be different. I believe that happened under George W. Bush. I believe that is ‑‑ I mean, Barney Frank last night on O'Reilly actually had the gall to say, what? We don't want to take away these companies. You know, abandoning capitalism, that was George W. Bush; that wasn't us. Well, you can stop it, Barney, if you think it's wrong. They don't think it's wrong. They just use ‑‑ and this is one of the reasons why I think John McCain would have been worse because it all would have been blamed on a so‑called conservative. No. He's a progressive conservative, whatever that means.

These guys are coming in and taking cap and trade. You are already, whether you know it or not ‑‑ and I think you do. I don't know if your neighbors do, but I think you do. You are already living in a different country than the one you were born in. You are already living in a different country than existed a year ago, and I believe that happened, that started to happen under George W. Bush. Now we haven't changed course. We've just increased the speed, the rate at which we are headed towards a gigantic progressive government that will not be financially solvent. We're just hurling in space at an unbelievable rate, but I've told you ‑‑ I started telling you this September, maybe, I said we're passing all of the exits and there are very few exits left. And this is what was so frustrating for me in the last 2 1/2, 3 years is I saw these things coming. I mean, it doesn't take ‑‑ all that's required to see this stuff is to just be willing to think the unthinkable, just be willing to think outside of the box.

David Buckner from Columbia, the first time I met him, I don't know if I've told you this but the first time I met him, he said, where did you get your education? I said, I didn't. And he said, I knew it. And I thought for a minute he was slamming me and I said, is that a slam? And he said, no. He said, I can't get my students to think like this. He said, because they're in this little tight little box. See, that's what a bad education does to you. A good education or a self‑education constantly encourages you to think and think the unthinkable and think out of the box and question everything. A so‑called good education puts you in a box and tells you the way things are. Doesn't tell you how to think. Tells you what to think. We just need to think out of the box. We need to be ‑‑ you know when I sat down at dinner with Stephen Moore a couple of years ago, I said these things are happening. He said, yes, but Glenn, for those things to happen, this, this, this and this would have to happen in Washington; And I said, you don't think they will do that? No, they are not crazy. No, they are not crazy. They are stupid, they are out of touch with the American people, they are out of touch with the Constitution, they are out of touch with business and all they care about is their own party, their own self‑interest or special interest. Of course they will do all of those things. You know, I'm not a guy actually who expects the worst. I really do. And people have written me and say why do you do these interviews and things where you know you are going to get hammered. Because I am an optimist. I actually believe that when I sit down with somebody that they will tell me the truth, that they will be a decent human being. In the end they still have to sleep at night. Where my pessimism comes is from Washington. I no longer will accept it from them. I no longer believe in them. I don't believe in any of them.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
