VOICE: And now it's time for... Ask Glenn Anything.

GLENN: Yes, that's right, ask Glenn anything. Our number is 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Let's go to Paul in Charleston. Hello, Paul, welcome to the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn. Hey, first off you are a great man, and I love you to death and I'm with you all the way. I think you are doing a heck of a job.

GLENN: I feel a "But" coming.

CALLER: Glenn, you there?

GLENN: Yes, I am.

CALLER: Okay, okay. I'm also an environmentalist, okay? And I want to explain something that, what you're missing when, where these environmentalists, why they are freaking out. I want to use the analogy of a cat. Anybody that knows anything about cats, you have ever seen one infested with fleas. When that last flea hits that cat, it drops the cat down. It's done. You've got to rush it to the emergency room and the vet. Whoever's gone through this, you know, understands what I'm talking about, especially with a flea infested cat.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: Here's the

GLENN: Hang on just a second, Paul. I'd just like to point out I hate cats and I don't know what you're talking about because I've never had a cat. I don't trust people with cats. But I am getting a second dog tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I mean, I kind of think you're joking because I don't think you would use the word "Hate" to anybody. But what

GLENN: No, cats I hate.

CALLER: I love everything, Glenn. I love everything.

GLENN: I don't.

CALLER: Everything that God created, everything that God created I love.

GLENN: I don't.

CALLER: I love everything.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: What happens with the environment? When that last flea even attacks that dog or that cat, okay.

GLENN: Do you love fleas? Seriously, God created fleas. Do you love fleas?

CALLER: Glenn, I love everything.

GLENN: You love everything, okay.

CALLER: I love everything that God created.

GLENN: May I just say then you would not then put a flea collar on your cat?

CALLER: Glenn, there's differences you are not letting me finish. You are

GLENN: No, I'm just trying to understand. If you love everything like cats, but I put a cat collar around my dog.

CALLER: Everything that God created is God's creation, you know?

GLENN: So you just, you then but evidently like Jesus would do, pick the fleas off your cat and release them back into the wild.

CALLER: Well, I haven't been able to do that when I comb them out but sometimes the fleas get the better half and I got to depend on the medical world.

GLENN: Do you try to resuscitate them? I'm just trying to understand. I'm just trying to understand where the line is with you.

CALLER: Because you haven't let me finish my point of the call.

GLENN: All right. I'll try. I'll try.

CALLER: I could, I'm not afraid to resuscitate my cat. I'll do it. That's how much I love cats.

GLENN: No, not your cat. Your fleas.

CALLER: Oh, the fleas? You know what, they are hard to drown. I mean, they're tough.

GLENN: You wouldn't drown something, though, that you love?

CALLER: Well, if it's

GLENN: Do you hold the little flea head in a bucket of water? Is that what you're trying to tell me, that you comb them out of your cat and then hold their heads underwater and try to drown your

CALLER: I can't believe how much you are interrupting me. All right.

GLENN: I'm sorry, go ahead. Go ahead, caller, you are on. Go ahead.

CALLER: All right, all right. Oh, I love you, buddy, I love you.

GLENN: No, go ahead. I love you, too. I love you are one of God's creatures and I love

CALLER: You are great. You should have seen me the other night here. Okay, the last flea that bites that cat puts that cat down. It's down.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: Now, where is the environmental freak?

GLENN: But that's okay with you because that's God's way of the fleas taking over?

CALLER: Everything

GLENN: If that's the way God wants it?

CALLER: Everything lives off of everything. We all have to survive.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And even the minuscule spree and the minor bacterial growth around the air.

GLENN: So what you are saying is we're all parasitic in nature.

CALLER: I'm not going to use the word parasite, but we do live in a world that survives off of each other's things. Like the trees survive off of our oxygen, our CO2.

GLENN: Right. Our CO our what? What do the trees survive on?

CALLER: Okay, I heard you talk. I heard you talk about

GLENN: All right, I'm sorry. I was about to trap you, go ahead.

CALLER: Oh, no. Hey, I'm armed and ready.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead.

CALLER: Okay. When that last flea bites that cat

GLENN: Oh, good God, you are still on the cat.

CALLER: I know. Here's the problem. When the last tree is cut down on the planet, when does it affect, when does it become beyond return?

GLENN: I don't know because we're not down to the last tree. In fact, there are more trees on the planet than there were 100 years ago.

CALLER: I would refer you to a, I believe it's a 1967 geothermal shot of space of the united of the world and look at the amount of lights that have come into play. Now, with lights come

GLENN: Lights. Okay, hang on just a second. Lights, all right, we're talking about lights because I will give you, there are more lights on Earth I thought we were talking about trees or fleas. I'm not really sure. But I will give you that there are more lights on Earth than there were in 1967.

CALLER: When that last tree is cut down, when does it

GLENN: Okay, you call me back when the last tree... (laughing)... is about to be cut down.

CALLER: Billions of trees left. But when that one within that one billionth, when it starts taking environmental change, people that environmental excuse me, environmentalists I tell people I'm very familiar with the readings of biblical and prophecies and scriptures like that.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: See, as an environmentalist I tell people, you know, I'm very familiar with the readings of biblical and prophecies and spirituals like that.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: I tell people, I said, you don't have to worry about God destroying the earth, sir.

GLENN: Don't have to what?

CALLER: You don't have to worry about god destroying this Earth right now because nature's going to beat him to it if man keeps doing what he's doing because

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: We don't think like the Egyptians did where their water was pure and clean and, you know, the amount of pollutants that are going in our water and poisoning our children

GLENN: Weren't they hold on just a second. Would you agree with me that the Hindus are very spiritually aware of I mean, they don't eat cattle and anything else, right?

CALLER: The Hindus are what?

GLENN: The Hindus are very spiritually aware, in a way they are very spiritual in nature, et cetera, et cetera?

CALLER: I have not studied the Hindu culture.

GLENN: Okay. Well, you know, they are very spiritual in nature and, you know, they won't eat cattle and, you know, they believe in the circle of life, et cetera, et cetera and they also crap in the river like the Egyptians used to. So I beg to differ with you that the that maybe the rivers weren't as pure as you seem to recall them being in Egypt. They were bathing in them.

CALLER: Our food and prescription drug intake in this America is poisoning our children. And it's

GLENN: Our prescription drug intake? Is this about are we going back to the fleas?

CALLER: Well, you do use I do use a prescription drug, half the amount recommended by the vet and three times a year. People kill I mean, drugs are out there to overkill and overuse.

GLENN: Okay. So what you are recommending, doctor, is that everyone takes half of the prescription drug medicine that the doctor prescribes?

CALLER: I'll tell you what, I'm also, I'm a very healthy person.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: I'm self employed. I have a small business. I do not

GLENN: Do you take prescription drugs?

CALLER: I do not own health insurance out of my own choice because I eat very healthily. I stay away from you know, look at that video

GLENN: Let's say this. Let's paint a scenario here. You are having a tofu sandwich made with entirely organic materials and you are on hang on. And you are on your bike because you are a very healthy person, as you are eating your tofu and alfalfa sprout sandwich, all organic. You are wearing hemp biking shorts and you have no health insurance because you are a very healthy man. And I'll give that to you. I don't know you, but I'm just going to let's just go with this scenario. How is that tofu sandwich going to help you with no health insurance as you are hit by a truck?

CALLER: Okay. We're talking about an accident versus somebody's versus

GLENN: Right. But you have no health insurance because you are a very healthy person, until you are hit by the cattle truck on its way to the butcher shop for McDonald's.

CALLER: Well, I hope and pray that that guy that's driving that truck gots an insurance policy that will cover my medical payments.

GLENN: All right. So we've got hope, and change. And I think we're there. Paul, thank you very much. I appreciate your phone call.

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."
