GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Let me go to Tim in Atlanta right off the bat and because he was he's been watching the mainstream media this morning and he says he's frustrated. Hello, Tim, welcome.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn. Thank you so much for taking my call.

GLENN: Sure.

CALLER: I am completely blown away this morning by the lack of coverage not only of the 9/12 march that had an estimated half a million plus, march on Washington plus the lack of coverage of the ACORN scandal. How are we going to overcome the media?

GLENN: This is so great, Tim, this is so great. You don't have to worry about it. The media is pounding nail after nail after nail into their own coffin right now. The American people are waking up. It doesn't matter. Even if the Washington Post wouldn't have covered it, everybody in Washington that needs to know, the people are awake, they know. It doesn't matter if it was covered at all. The people that needed to hear that message, believe me, heard the message. If you go overseas, you start to look at some real numbers, overseas the London Telegraph is now saying that the number is over a million.

CALLER: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: They quote a source from the Park Service, the National Park Service saying that it is the largest march on Washington ever.

CALLER: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: And they also quote somebody in the White House saying that the White House was shocked at the number. Now, you're not going to get that in the mainstream press here in America, but that's what the Daily Mail is reporting today.

Now, everybody in Washington knows, and the great thing is America now understands. America now knows that America is awake. It is the best news ever. America is awake.

So don't worry about what you see in the mainstream media. Start keeping track of who you can trust and who you can't. You know, I said, when was it, last Wednesday maybe when this ACORN stuff started to come out, I wondered why nobody would cover the Van Jones story when it happened. I asked for answers. I just wanted somebody to answer the question: How much power does this guy have, who let him into the White House, what does all of this mean for the policies of the president. If he's denied the communist ties and everything else, then let us know. How many times on the air did I say please, I want to be wrong? Do you remember that, Pat?

PAT: Over and over again.

GLENN: I mean, you and I talked about it afterwards. I don't think I've ever heard anybody on television say I want to be wrong, please, give me the other answer. Nobody would. Nobody did it. So Van Jones goes away in the middle of the night. Nobody reported. I think the Washington Post reported one story on it. New York Times only reports the story that he's gone. None of the and nobody still today is actually reporting on the communist thing, none of them.

PAT: They just don't buy it. Oh, yeah, sure. If they mention it at all, which they usually don't, it was like, oh, he was communist in the Nineties, he's changed his mind.

GLENN: When?

PAT: When.

GLENN: I'd like to know when. Show me the videotape, show me. Okay, the next thing is then we started on ACORN. ACORN, we have and wait until tomorrow. I know there's a videotape out today that's showing the corruption in New York, and we're going to play some of the videotape for you today. But we're not going to spend a lot of time on it because tomorrow will boggle your mind. It will take a full hour on television tomorrow just to go through the tape and that's not the whole tape. And you will not believe what I'll show you tomorrow.

So we started showing this. I said, I think it was last Wednesday or Thursday, I don't remember what day, I always knew that the press was biased but now, America, you need to understand that the press is complicit. The press is so deeply in bed that there is, there is no bias here. Bias is two people watch an accident and one says, "No, the car no, no, no, that guy, he swerved and he hit him first." And the other guy goes, "No, I saw it from a different angle; I'm telling you it happened the other way." There's bias, and that bias comes from your life experience and everything else. This isn't bias. This is complicit. There's no other way to read this. When you look at the ACORN thing how is it? Tax dollars are at stake. The IRS should be investigating them. The teachers union has given $1.2 million to ACORN, I think just this year. Now, we have ACORN officials in three cities now is it three or is it four? Three cities. I think three cities.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Three cities, going after where a guy dressed as a pimp and a woman dressed as a hooker go in and say, hey, I'm a pimp and I'm a hooker and we need to buy a house. They're using tax dollars to advise them on how to cheat on their taxes and be able to get a loan for their house so they can set up a brothel of 13 year old girls who are illegal aliens from El Salvador. And the news doesn't report on it. That's not "I grew up in a different circle of friends and I have a different point of view." That is "I'm lying to you. I will no longer I cannot be trusted to tell you the truth."

Do you remember I've been saying for how many months the paradigm is about to change. Gang, we're here. The paradigm is changing right now and unless the mainstream media begins to understand this, unless the mainstream media understands, there are only going to be there's only going to be one side standing in the end of this. There's only going to be the side of the mainstream media that is currently feeding you not bias but out and out lies, complicit lies. They're going to be the ones standing in the end, or people that are telling you the truth on both sides, for and against, the people who are willing to say, "Okay, look, I was wrong on this one but I'm right on this one." It's either going to be some sort of a spooky 1984 world that we live in where 2 plus 2 equals 7 if they tell you to, or we're going to restore this thing. And I am betting on the restoration of this country because the truth will always set you free. The only thing that will stop it is an event. The only thing that will stop it is some nut job doing something and this government making the case that, well, we've just, we've got to take control, we've got to take control. We've got to take the guns, we've got to take control, we've got to do this, we've got to do that. Some nut this is why, you know, the media can say whatever they want. "Oh, Glenn Beck, he's..." did you see the story in, what was it, the New York Daily News yesterday, Stu, where the spooky thing about Glenn Beck is he's stirring his people up into anger and hatred and he just wants them to shoot people. Did you see that go ahead. Somewhere between 50,000 and two million people? I know that's a hard window to figure out how much it was. Somewhere between 50,000 and two million people came to the mall on Saturday? Did you notice there was no violence?

STU: Well, there were all those shootings.

GLENN: No.

STU: There was the bazookas? Remember that bazooka attack?

GLENN: The streets of Washington D.C. probably have never been safer in the last 20 years than they were this weekend.

PAT: Or cleaner.

GLENN: Cleaner.

PAT: Everybody cleaned up after themselves.

STU: Well, but all those Chinese throwing stars, the attacks.

GLENN: No, they didn't have that.

STU: That didn't happen?

PAT: No, they didn't have that yesterday, uh uh.

GLENN: So don't worry about the media. The media you know what? I

PAT: Those are cool, though.

GLENN: I felt

PAT: I like Chinese throwing stars.

GLENN: I felt about a month ago there is no need to hype, there's no need to be always err I've said this to the staff. When in doubt, leave it out. If we don't know, if we can't verify it. You want stuff taken out of context or what may have been taken out of context on things like Van Jones? Oh, I could have done 1400 hours on that. When in doubt, leave it out. And the reason why we did that is because I have a strong impression that the truth will set you free. And these people will implode on they are going to collapse on their own weight. The media is going to collapse on its own weight. NBC is going to go down. They are just, they are going to go down either that, or they're going to be the state run media. But they are never going to

STU: Going to be? Like what would they need to do to make themselves more would they need to be

GLENN: They would have to erase everybody else's freedom of speech and the government just seizes control.

STU: So you are saying that

GLENN: Maybe BBC1.

STU: So they just need to be the only media. They wouldn't have to change their coverage. They would just

GLENN: They are the only media, right. So they are betting, I think, on you know, I don't know. I don't know what they are betting on. But they are either going to go down all the way, because they are not going to change their ways.

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:
