GLENN: Okay, all right. If you have high blood pressure. If you're anybody that, you know, is close to a heart attack or anything, turn the radio off right now because this gives me heart palpitations. Are you ready?

Congress just a few days ago, the house approved $200 million, the house just approved $200 million to buy three Gulf Stream jets to ferry top government officials and members of Congress around. I'm trying to remember, um, how much they praised the auto industry and the CEOs for being responsible with their time by flying in a private jet to come talk to Congress, and then after they excoriated the people in private jets then unbeknownst to you, most likely, they offered a tax credit for anybody who purchased a Gulf Stream or private jet. Did you know that?


Did you know that?

No, I don't think.

GLENN: Did you know that, Stu?

STU: No, I only lease my private jets.

GLENN: I found that out from a pilot who is having his companies that he works for completely destroyed, kind of like the people who are pilots kind of feel a little like I think the board of tourism in Vegas feel right now. Oh, my gosh, thank you so much for that. So they've done everything to badmouth anybody that rides on a private jet and yet, they offer tax breaks if you buy a new private jet. How is that?

What is that?

Is that an indulgence?

Is that what that is?

Is that so you can buy your way into forgiveness, I'm not sure. What is that?

STU: Important people need to get to important places, Glenn

GLENN: I'm glad to know that they're buying the new Gulf Stream 550 which is $65 million apiece.

STU: That's the southwest Air of the private jets.

GLENN: That's the nicest jet made. No, no, it's the nicest jet made.

STU: It doesn't have any options, though?

GLENN: It has all the options. You can buy a jet that's very nice, not quite this size but very close. You can buy one for $20 million. This one is $65 million.

STU: The problem, though

GLENN: You could buy a G5 and don't go for the upgrade of the G550 and you can get it for $55 million

STU: You're putting this crazy analogy together. With private jets, there's no way you can buy them used

GLENN: You can buy them used, in fact, Donald Trump, there's this huge area of the desert that has gigantic, 727s. You can buy a 727 for about, I think don't quote me on this, but I believe about $10 million. You have to renovate it. You probably have to put another $10 million in it to renovate it, but it's sitting right there. There's $20 million for a 727, or you could buy a Gulf Stream 550 for members of Congress at $65 million.

STU: You're, again, missing there's huge holes in your story here.

GLENN: Really?


Really?

STU: Yes, you can buy a $10 million jet but unfortunately there's nobody who is available to work and take a new job to work on a new project like that.

GLENN: No, there's lots of companies that would go ahead and the companies that are begging for business.

STU: You have full employment. There's no way anybody could take

GLENN: No, I don't know if you know this. For instance, I think it was in Ohio, they've been hiring or is it Wisconsin, where they've been hiring people with stimulus money and the jobs only last five days. How many?

Was that in Oregon?

Yeah, they last only five days and you know, the representatives in Oregon said nobody thought that you could get more than five days' worth of work for this money. Oh, you're right. Why would we create a job that would last more than five days?

If we could just create a job let's say we could create 100 people. We could create a job for 100 people. Hang on. We have cast Sustine as a czar. That sounded like a statement, but maybe that's an idea. How about we just create people?

Yeah, if we create people and then give them something to put in their engine that makes their engine not run, we could crush the old people, sell them as food to China. Voice: it's people. Soilent green is made out of people!

Soilent green is people!

GLENN: That's not a bad idea. Would somebody write that down for me?


Write that down. Let's just get people and send to Kass Sustine. He's the regulatory czar. I forget what czar he is. I love him. He's great. Anyway so what we do is we create jobs. In fact, we should create a bunch of new green jobs. If we could get new green jobs. Who do we know over the green jobs?

Voice: HO, HO, green job czar.

GLENN: We get Vann Jones, the devout communist, we get him to create a bunch of jobs that only last five days. Let's do this with 5,000 people. Five days, you lose your job and then create new jobs. We take those same thousand people and employ them for another five days and now we just created 2,000 jobs. If we did that once a week, new jobs every week, we could take the same thousand people and claim that we have created 52,000 jobs. That's fantastic.

PAT: Genius.

GLENN: Wait a minute. What if we say those thousand people are only working for one day. We could create 365,000 new jobs. My, my, I mean

VOICE: HO, HO, HO, green job czar!

GLENN: I'm thinking, okay. Next thing you know I will be working for the Obama administration, you know, making people into soilent green. What? That's an idea! Why the hate?

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
