GLENN: You know what, we're just having an argument. Already, already the show hasn't even started and we're having an argument in here because Stu says he's totally on board with the police officer, you know, in the Gates case. He's totally on board with the police officer. And I said, well, you know, what did you hear. And he said, I listened to a 20 minute interview with him. And I said, why don't we play it. And he said, because I hate white people. And I said, what?

STU: That's not exactly how it happened.

GLENN: He said, that's what I believe.

STU: I just, it's not exactly what happened. I said white people are evil.

GLENN: Evil, well, okay, all right.

STU: And I want to hide the truth because I want to

GLENN: We're working on a theory today. Pat, do we have the audio vault ready?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Okay. So we're working on a theory today of two things. First of all, the Rahm Emanuel quote on don't waste a good emergency, or never let a good emergency pass or whatever, he said, blah, blah blah. And the other is why did this question come up. Now, here we are in a big healthcare debate.

STU: In a press conference specifically about healthcare.

GLENN: Healthcare. And the last question, did anybody else hear this question and go what is that even about? What is that? Now, my theory is that he wanted to get this out there on the record because this is a good friend of his; he wanted to be able to make sure. But did he know that this question was going to be asked? I want you to hear a piece of audio and then you ask that question again. Did he know that this question was going to be asked. In the framework of "Never waste a good emergency," never let a problem go by that you can't exploit. Here's the audio. This is from, what, press conference about a month ago?

PAT: Yeah. This yeah. They were talking about Iran and

GLENN: No, they weren't. No, he wasn't.

PAT: No?

GLENN: No, he wasn't.

PAT: This had nothing to do with Iran?

GLENN: No. This was the first question in the press conference. Go ahead.

PAT: This is a logical place to go. Wait a second.

GLENN: Oh, jeez. I mean, how much

STU: Well, we didn't play the Pat to be fair, we didn't play the Pat's audio vault sounder.

GLENN: That's why I asked do you have Pat's audio vault, when I say do we have Pat's audio vault, instead of saying "Yes,"

VOICE: Pat's audio vault.

GLENN: But instead you just go, yep, we got it. And then now we're ready for the now we're ready for the next piece.

PAT: Now we're ready for the next piece.

GLENN: Go ahead.

PAT: Which, we're ready, which

STU: The Pat's audio

GLENN: Do you believe that this is quite possibly the biggest waste of money we've ever dumped into anything?

PAT: The Pat's audio vault?

GLENN: Yeah, the whole audio vault idea. And really Pat in and of himself.

PAT: I think you are forgetting about skeletons in closets and not going down these roads.

STU: That's true.

GLENN: Let's get to Pat's audio vault. Here is from the press conference. This is about a month ago.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Since we're on a run, I know Nico Pitney is here from Huffington Post.

REPORTER: Thank you, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I know that you and all across the Internet, we've been seeing reports come directly out of Iran. I know there may be questions from people in Iran who are communicating through the Internet. Do you have a question?

REPORTER: Yeah, I did. I wanted to use this opportunity to ask you

GLENN: Stop.

PAT: He's psychic. He's psychic.

GLENN: He is. He is psychic there. I mean, how did he know that? We found out later that he knew because it was set up. It was all set up.

STU: Well, the White House was very specific to say they didn't know exactly what words would come in what order in his sentences. So I think I mean, you've got to include that.

GLENN: Yes, you're right, you're right. I'm sorry for saying that. When you're right, you're right.

GLENN: When you're right, you're right. Okay, so the question that I have in the week of healthcare when it's all just tubing, is it a was it just, you know, by chance that everybody now today is talking about this whole Gates thing and not healthcare. Did he know that question was coming at the end? He just had to ask the right person to ask that question. Did he know. Now, my personal theory is that he did know that that question was coming from that person and he wanted just to be on the record because it's a good friend of his. However, let's think like a community organizer for a second. I've been telling you that the only thing you really need to know about this guy is that he's a community organizer. If you understand this, you'll understand absolutely everything. Overwhelming the system. That's why the bills are coming out and he's saying, "Go, go, go, go, go!" Overwhelm the system. That's what ACORN is doing when they, you know, they come in with 100,000 voter registration cards and 60,000 of them are bogus. Have you ever wondered, why would they do that? I mean, because they say, "We know. We told them. We thought these were bogus. We thought these were bogus, and we even separated them for them." Well, that's it doesn't matter. They are trying to look like, oh, no, we thought that these were bogus, and... why would you even bring them in? You bring them in because they have to check each and every one. It overwhelms the system. At some point if you keep doing this to it, the voter registrar's office says, "I can't do it anymore!" And the system breaks. So you look at everything he does and if you look through the eyes of a community organizer, you understand it. Now, how does that bring us to Gates? What would be the president's motivation for talking about Gates? Besides, if you want to go deeper than he's just a friend, what would he have to gain? Simple answer is, well, you take healthcare and here comes a big loss and which, by the way, I don't think this is a loss. Don't ever count these guys out. I don't think this thing's done when it's done. They'll put the framework in slowly but surely in other bills. So vigilance.

But here he has his first big defeat. Let me go back to community organizing group ACORN. Why does ACORN hire people who are known convicts and prisoners who served time for fraud and what do you call it identity theft? Why would they do that? Why would you have those people go out and collect signatures? Because those are the people that are thrown under the bus. Those are the people that ACORN says, "Oh, my gosh. Well, we didn't know. We just had a few bad eggs." And the Feds come in or the state attorney general comes in and says, "We're going to arrest these people." But what does ACORN do? Do they change their hiring habits? No. Why? Because it allows ACORN to then, in that same state or city, go out and have a big fundraiser with their hard core supporters and say it is the man against the black man again.

Now, I have this from insiders at ACORN. This is a bonus for them. When we go on the air and I rip apart the guy from on ACORN, especially if he's black, they it allows them to take that videotape and say, "See? It's the white man against the black man." It helps them.

Is it possible that in this emergency or in this crisis with his friend, his friend is in crisis, legitimate thing going on. He's in a crisis because healthcare is bad. His poll numbers are slipping. Is it just possible that he is using this question to be able to rally support of his hard core supporters. Even if he backs away from it, he's already said it. How many times have you heard his hard core supporters saying, "Well, of course he's saying that now. He can't get away with it." So he says it and his hard core supporters say, "Yeah, grew the pigs." And then when he backs up from it, his hard core supporters say, "Yeah, but he's really with us. He's got to say this because of..." do you think there's a possibility of that at all? That's the question I want to ask you today as you ask me anything. You can ask me anything about stories that we were on this week, why we didn't cover certain stories, you can inform us on something that you think was missed, you can get your voice out across the nation today. 888 727 BECK, and say why is no one else saying this. Today's your day. 888 727 BECK. We'll go to the phones here in just a second.

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."
