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.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
