GLENN: Do you have the audio of Bob Inglis?

PAT: Yes. Yes, we do.

GLENN: Okay. So the audio of ‑‑ here's Bob Inglis when he said, "Oh, you people at the town halls."

STU: He said "You people" again.

GLENN: Yeah, but he's black. So he can get away with it.

STU: He is? Oh, everybody in Washington. I forgot.

GLENN: He's from Washington. Remember?

STU: Forgot.

GLENN: Everybody from Washington's black. So Bob Inglis, I guess the latest addition to the African‑American community, is speaking here and saying that we tea partygoers, we racists, I guess, need to stop listening to Glenn Beck. Here was the response. It was a quiet response, wasn't it? It was a very, very quiet response. It was almost nothing. There was ‑‑ this is when ‑‑

STU: The acoustics in that room were not good, though. So we don't know ‑‑

GLENN: All right. So here it is. Here it is.

PAT: Hang on just a second.

STU: I mean, I would say keep talking until he gives us the signal.

VOICE: Pat's audio vault.

"Turn Glenn Beck Off" - Bob Inglis (R-SC)

PAT: Are you ready for my audio vault?

GLENN: Ready for the audio.

PAT: Here it is.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: So turn Glenn Beck off.

STU: Popular with the constituents.

PAT: Yeah. They are eating that up.

GLENN: Anyway, it didn't go over well for Bob Inglis. Now Bob Inglis has come out with another fantastic position that I'm behind and that is Joe

WILSON: Son is a bad man and should be punished.

STU: Ee‑vil.

GLENN: Ee‑vil. So in a completely unrelated turn of events, we have South Carolina State Senator Dave Thomas on the phone who is running against Bob Inglis, maybe the second politician today that I come out and endorse. Let's go to Dave. Hello, Dave, how are you?

THOMAS: Glenn, good morning from the fourth congressional district where everybody's wanting to turn Glenn Beck on. But we don't get your radio show. We only see you on Fox, of course.

GLENN: Really?

THOMAS: Yeah. So you are ‑‑

GLENN: So this isn't going to help you.

THOMAS: Well, listen.

GLENN: Maybe I'll just ‑‑ you send me a phone book. I may just call people all day today in your district.

THOMAS: I've served with, I served with Joe in the state Senate for I guess about 14 years, something like that, and he is such a gentleman. If you met Joe and got to know him, you would be ‑‑ anybody would. He is the most genteel fella you ever want to meet in the world. He had really been working this immigration thing in the healthcare bill. So it was emotionally really pent up in him. And I had talked to him about it. He had tried two times to get amendments passed to make sure there were teeth in the legislation to enforce the issue. And, you know, you can have all the stuff you want, Glenn. If you don't have enforcement, it's not there. So when the president says the words that he said and Joe had been working on this thing so hard, you know, he said that's just not true; you lie.

GLENN: Well, here's the ‑‑ I mean, here's the thing. The president was wrong. According to the congressional, what is it, the congressional report that came out, that's wrong. But you don't even have to go there. All you have to do is use logic. Are we going to turn illegal aliens away at the hospital? The answer is... no. So they do get free healthcare. The healthcare that is crippling our hospitals, people without insurance going to the hospital to get care in the emergency room. So they are going to get universal health coverage, is not a reform that's going to take the weight off of our system. Now, here you are, Dave. I didn't know that ‑‑ by the way, any relation to Dave Thomas from Wendy's?

THOMAS: I wish. But unfortunately it's not the case. I'm just ‑‑

GLENN: Because if you had Frosties in your genealogy, man, I would have come out and endorsed you right now.

THOMAS: I'm a chocolate milk shake fanatic, and I like them malted. I don't know about you, but ‑‑

GLENN: Okay, I'm leaning your direction.

THOMAS: Glenn, you know, an interesting thing, let me just quick say it is the case that he said that, turn Glenn Beck off. Now, the thing is there's so many people that are Glenn Beck fans here in the upstate that watch you just faithfully every night, what's the possibility of not necessarily for an endorsement but just to get you here for a rally that would be a ‑‑ and not necessarily a tea party rally. Just get Glenn ‑‑ I want Glenn Beck here in the upstate of ‑‑ now, this is Greenville. This is between Atlanta and Charlotte. It's a big metro area. There are millions of people in this area. And could ‑‑

GLENN: How many of them want to kill me?

THOMAS: None of them.

GLENN: None of them?

THOMAS: This is a conservative ‑‑

GLENN: So will Bob Inglis, he will then be in another part of the country?

THOMAS: He might be peeking over the fence or something.

GLENN: Right.

THOMAS: You know, and I would really like to say if we could get you here, I think we would have 10,000 people show up.

GLENN: Well, I would ‑‑ you know, I would love to, Dave. I would have to look at the schedule. You can talk to my office about that. I would love to go down and do that. Believe me, I would love to go down and make sure that the people in your area don't listen to me or watch me because I'm, of course, Bob Inglis is right, I'm just filling everyone with lies about Van Jones especially. There's no communists anywhere.

Dave, the thing that outrages me is that Bob Inglis, this is what brought me to the table today again on Bob Inglis is why did he vote fortress Lucian yesterday to penalize Joe Wilson? Do you have any idea?

THOMAS: Yes, I do. I read his comments in the Greenville news today and according to him it was a decorum issue, and I reject that. It is not a ‑‑ that's what the Democrats want us to believe it is. But that is simply, that is simply a cloak, and the cloak is Joe Wilson nailed them on the immigration issue. In a completely wrong way, of course, but it was done nationally. And now he brought national attention to the gimmick that was going on with the healthcare plan that would have included illegals, it would have therefore drawn millions of illegals and bankrupted the healthcare system if that bill passes with those provisions in it that would have allowed those, because they had no enforcement. That's what Joe had focused on. And they nailed the Democrats. And a half dozen Republicans that are amnesty supporters like Bob Inglis. Bob Inglis is an amnesty supporter. They are mad at him, therefore. And so they are attacking on that issue and then they said the opportunity to take off on a race issue, too.

GLENN: Well, Dave, best of luck to you. How are you doing in the polls?

THOMAS: In the polls we're doing fine. Bob is, we believe, below 50%. And for an incumbent to be there. Thomas 2010 if you want to read about me, Thomas 2010. Go online and I'd love to have people communicating with me and it's real easy to get in touch with me with my website. So if you've got a contribution you want to give to Joe, it's easy to get him. Just go online there and the same for me, David Thomas for congress, or Thomas 2010. But now remember, I want you here. Glenn Beck here, turn Glenn Beck on. Turn Glenn Beck on.

GLENN: All right. Dave Thomas, David Thomas for congress. It's Thomas2010.com. Thanks, David, I appreciate it.

THOMAS: Thank you, Glenn, bye‑bye.

GLENN: You bet. Bye‑bye.

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
