GLENN: And here's my favorite. Let's get to can we dance with the czars for just a second, please?

(Music playing).

GLENN: I love the fact that we can get to know them. They're fantastic. Stu, do you like the czars that we've met so far?

STU: They are fantastic.

GLENN: And they are wonderful dancers so far. Who is your favorite dancer?

STU: Van Jones.

GLENN: Why do you like him so much?

STU: I believe it was the acrobatic nature of his routine will

GLENN: Really? What did you like about Van Jones, Pat?

PAT: Did a mean zomba, mean zomba.

GLENN: It didn't bother you that he was a full fledged communist?

PAT: No, that was way in the past.

GLENN: That was Rodney King, that was after Rodney King.

STU: That was like the 1890s, 1790s? You are saying it was the 1790s?

GLENN: No, it was the 1990s that Rodney and then he went to jail and then he became a radical Marxist and then he became a communist and then he went to work on streets, you know, in like community organizations and, you know, to try to

PAT: I haven't heard them say this but I'm sure that he's completely beyond the communist thing now. I'm sure he is.

GLENN: Well, no, he did. He moved on. He said

PAT: He moved on.

GLENN: He found the green movement.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: So he went from the red to the green movement.

STU: He went to the jobs movement, and I think the jobs movement is the appropriate place for him to be.

PAT: And you know, I mean, if there's anybody with a background that you can trust, it's communists in creating jobs.

GLENN: That's true.

PAT: There's complete full employment.

GLENN: You know what, you are turning me around. You know what, let's dance with another czar here.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: Let's meet the new czar. This one is Cass Sunstein. He is fantastic. He was a professor at the University of Chicago law school. Hey, wasn't that where our president was a

PAT: Yes, uh huh.

GLENN: That is fantastic. You know what's great? It's almost this administration is almost like family. I don't know why I think of families, when I think of Chicago, mob comes to mind. But it's like a family. You know what I mean? The Chicago law school is there and he's like, hey, you are fantastic. He is a prolific author, and he has written so many answers on the questions of law and policy, and they are not expecting him to have any problem. Quote, easily confirmed by the Senate. And this is going to be fantastic because this guy has supported the cost benefit analysis. This is the practice of examining regulations to ensure that the benefit to society outweighs whatever costs they impose.

For instance, the Bridge to Nowhere, let's do the cost benefit analysis. Wouldn't you say, Stu?

STU: Works perfectly with a bridge.

GLENN: Exactly right. The cost benefit of the bridge. It doesn't why would we spend all of this money on this bridge? There's not enough people that use it.

STU: It works perfectly on everything, of course, except for global warming, which you should never do. Never do a cost benefit analysis on global warming. Because that's just moral. But everything else you should definitely like people dying because they're not worth enough to society, that's

GLENN: Well, he does have this. He thinks that the amounts of arsenic in water, he's written about this. Standards set at 3 parts per billion would save more lives than a standard set at 10 parts per billion but it would also cost more to achieve and that cost will, in turn, be passed on to customers in their water bills. If it could be shown that the more stringent standard would result in saving 10 lives per year, how much would society be willing to pay to achieve that? $10 million, $100 million, a billion?

STU: So you are saying this guy wants people to live.

GLENN: He wants people to live. That's what he's doing.

STU: There's nothing wrong with that.

GLENN: He's saying how much is a human life worth. That's what he's saying, how much is a human life worth.

STU: Because he wants lives.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Like save or creating lives.

GLENN: For instance hmmm? For instance, he's written in support of what some people call the senior death discount, and he supports this. He's written several articles in support of this. And this is a practice taking into account the years of life expectancy when evaluating a regulation.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: So if you are 74, for instance, then you wouldn't be as worth saving as somebody who was 22 and lived near something that was toxic.

GLENN: Let's use something that's not so hate driven here. Let's say there's a toxic waste dump and they find it underneath a senior citizens home. Then they find another identical toxic waste dump underneath a playground. The toxic waste dump is worth taking out under the playground but not under the senior citizens home because children have more life expectancy than the old people do.

PAT: Well, that makes sense because if you are going to die anyway by the time you are 75 and there's a toxic waste dump, the toxic waste may not even kick in until you're dead already.

GLENN: No, but see, what would happen here already is you have then old people, their life not being worth as much.

STU: Well, it's not just the life. It's quality of life. For example, if you are on a playground and this toxic waste, you know, slows you down, makes your muscles, your innards disintegrate, you wouldn't be able to use the slide. You wouldn't be able to climb to the top of the ladder.

GLENN: Yeah, but neither would the

STU: You wouldn't be able to work on the jungle gym, where if you are old, you are not doing anything. I mean, you are just sitting there in a home.

GLENN: I think the other side would be that you should, you know, value life is life.

PAT: Have you ever been to a nursing home?

GLENN: I have.

PAT: A lot of people living there don't even want to. They might be glad there's a toxic waste dump outside.

GLENN: So are you equating that kind of like millionaires have so much money that they don't even they won't even notice?

STU: They are not even going to miss the money if it's gone.

GLENN: So you are saying that we won't enemies old people or old people won't miss living?

PAT: Both.

STU: Well, society won't miss old people.

PAT: Right.

STU: Society will miss jungle gyms.

PAT: They won't have to go to the rest room anymore.

GLENN: Hang on a second. Isn't there something for the individual?

STU: You are saying the individual rung on jungle gym?

GLENN: It sounds like you guys are making the case for a collective.

STU: Well, society is what's most important, I think. I mean, if you look, there's one existence where you're in bed.

GLENN: By the way, we're just practicing. So when all of this comes true we know exactly how to blend in and we can we're just practicing. Go ahead. So anyway, you were saying?

STU: So I'm saying old people are just in bed. I mean, think about swings. Think about tether ball.

GLENN: Okay, okay, you've convinced me on the whole "Old people are worth less than children."

PAT: Good. Okay.

GLENN: You've convinced me on that.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: Now, help me out with this one because he's also a very big, he's a very big animal rights guy, okay? In fact, John Cornyn from Texas says he's not convinced that he's not going to push for radical animal rights agenda. But Sunstein said that, you know, he promises he won't.

STU: Oh, he promised?

GLENN: Yeah, he promised he won't. What he won't do is he would like to establish, and he's written about this, he would like to establish legal rights for livestock, wildlife, and pets. And that would enable animals to file lawsuits in American courts.

STU: Finally.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Wait a minute. I think this is a bad idea. What do you mean finally?

STU: Of course you think it's a bad idea. I mean, you've routinely criticized cats for their role in our society.

GLENN: What would make you say that? Would you say the literally 8,000 letters that we received about me saying that if you have too many cats, you should be picked up by Homeland Security and that I hate cats and all dogs should eat cats?

STU: Exactly. I mean, you'd be one of the first targets of the lawsuit. I think, though, the first would be if you've ever seen the, every year they do the ugliest dog contest. I mean, that's hateful. I mean, this dog is just trying to make it through life and, yeah, it might not might not fit society's

GLENN: So are you saying we're hurting the feelings of what about, like, if you have a pet? Can you have a pet? I mean, what if you had a pet and then somebody said, I'm going to sue you because you have a pet and your dog's like perfectly happy. I mean, we treat my dog well. Are you saying that he should be able to be represented in court by somebody who's suing me so he could be liberated?

STU: I certainly wouldn't call him a pet. I mean, if there's some consensual arrangement. I mean, I don't know if

GLENN: You are not forced to sign a pen I mean sign a contract or anything.

STU: There's a paw, a paw print, talking a very specific paw print. The paw print is different for every dog. I don't know why are you talking about some forced arrangement? What country do we live in here?

GLENN: No. I'm just saying that I mean, I'm just saying that I don't think he should be able to bring lawsuits up against hunters for going to hunt an animal.

STU: Oh, because, you know, you should just be able to just shoot things. Oh, and I suppose that means you are supposed to have a right to a gun as well.

GLENN: So this is our new could we have our Dancing With the Czar, please? Because I think we've gotten to know him...

PAT: Pretty well.

GLENN: Pretty well. This is the new guy. He is, again, Cass Sunstein, Cass Sunstein. What a surprise, he's also a visiting professor at Harvard. If I hear "Harvard" or "Chicago" one more time, I think I'm going to hang myself.

PAT: I have to say I think this guy's solving two problems in one.

GLENN: What do you mean?

PAT: He's obviously an animal rights guy. So we're going to be protecting animals from being brutally killed and cooked and eaten by human beings. So that's going to lessen the food supply. But what we do is supplement that by recycling old people.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I never thought of that.

PAT: Have you ever see?

GLENN: Seriously, seriously.

PAT: Do you not remember?

GLENN: Let's think about this. Of course I remember.

PAT: Soylent Green.

VOICE: People. Soylent Green. Soylent Green is people!

PAT: This could be

GLENN: I think Charlton Heston said it best.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: When he said, "It's people."

VOICE: Soylent Green, made out of people.

GLENN: By a czar.

VOICE: Soylent Green is people!

GLENN: I think you are exactly right. I think that's great. And if we could have a side of old person along with a really expensive piece of ham that the government has, wouldn't that be great? Seriously, and all of the animals will start to talk in a Disney sort of way.

STU: The ham thing has been debunked, though.

GLENN: Oh, it has?

STU: Yes. They have reported specifically that they paid double the price that you could get at any grocery store and

GLENN: That's not debunking it.

STU: It wasn't like one piece of ham paid millions of dollars. They just paid double the price of the special at Food Lion.

GLENN: That doesn't sound like that's debunking of it to me. Is that a debunking of it, Pat?

STU: I'm saying that when you know government savings they are always talking about they are going to have in healthcare. Well, this is an example of it. Instead of paying 50 million times the price, they only paid double. That's savings.

GLENN: The world is upside down, man. How is it? How is it? You know what? Everybody sees it now. Everybody sees it. If you don't see it, we should make you into old people food. We should hang you in some sort of an IV bag in a nursing home that's built on a toxic waste dump. If you don't see what's going on right now, this has nothing to do with Common Sense. This is way beyond. Way beyond. This is a transformation of our country and an overwhelming of the system, what I believe to intentionally collapse it.

Okay, did I just say that out loud?

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."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
