GLENN: Oh, yes. That's right, it's the book where your idiot friend comes to you and says...

PAT: The other day you told me of the top 10 best selling cars of 2008, right?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: None of them were hybrids.

GLENN: Yes, yes.

PAT: Okay. I was on a hybrid car website.

GLENN: You were on a what?

PAT: A hybrid car website. And they said when pickup trucks are removed from the 2008 list. This is a lot like your lie about Keith Olbermann. Keith Olbermann, when you talk about midgets who walk with a limp and are blind in one eye and don't listen to Fox, he's number one. Well, when you and you are always lying about you being number one. And

GLENN: But we are number one and

PAT: But this stop your lies.

GLENN: Okay, what is the

PAT: Just like the hybrid. When pickup trucks are removed from the 2008 list, the Toyota Prius ranked number 10.

GLENN: Wait a minute here.

PAT: When

GLENN: Hang on.

PAT: Is this too tough for you to follow? When pickup trucks are removed from the 2008 list, the Prius ranks number 10.

GLENN: Okay. So your counterargument is that if we just delete all of the pickup trucks, right?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Which would include the top two selling vehicles in America, then you squeak onto the list and finish tenth.

PAT: Well, yeah. And when gas prices were over four bucks a gallon, the Prius was number eight! How about that?



Evil Conservative Industries cares about conserving fuel - learn more...

GLENN: Well, that's

PAT: How about that?

GLENN: That's a great

PAT: Thank you.

GLENN: That's a great point.

PAT: About time.

GLENN: So when gas mileage was by far the biggest concern to people looking to buy an automobile, they still picked the Prius as their eighth favorite, their eighth favorite vehicle.

PAT: Is this funny to you, fatso?

GLENN: No, I just

PAT: No.

GLENN: If you remove several of the other vehicles from the list, are you even trying to make a good argument here?

PAT: Please, Mr. Triple barbecue chin, you know you know what I like to call your quoting of sales figures from industry reports?

GLENN: No. You tell me.

PAT: Cherry picking! I noticed it's all about the Prius, right? Why not mention any other hybrid models? Why not? Why don't you mention it?

GLENN: Well, quite honestly because I wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt and talk about only mildly successful hybrid models. For example, the Toyota Camry and the Honda Civic, they were the second and third best selling hybrids in 2008.

PAT: You see? I told you, told you.

GLENN: Let me finish. Their combined sales were less than half of the Prius.

PAT: I'm sorry. Could you repeat that?

GLENN: The Prius wasn't in the top ten, and the next two best selling hybrids combined didn't even equal half of the Prius.

PAT: Well, what if you multiply them?

GLENN: Excuse me?

PAT: If you multiply their sales by five or six, then it would be selling pretty good, right?

GLENN: Well, I guess, but you

PAT: (Laughing). You can't argue with the numbers, Glenn. Oh, the numbers are stubborn things. And you can't argue with hybridcars.com.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Who expose your lies about people liking hybrids. Even people on the rightwing war mongering side for example, I've got one here. Quote: One visitor of hybridcars.com wrote in 2005, "I am a tried and true Prius owner and my next vehicle will be another hybrid. I'll never go back to a full gasoline car! And, I am a conservative church attending Christian!"

GLENN: Hold it.

PAT: Who probably prays every day. I love Rush and I support George Bush.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. I need to break in and ask our producer, Steve Burguiere, is hybridcars.com an actual website?

STU: Yes, it is.

GLENN: And is this an I'm a tried and true Prius owner from 2005 and my next vehicle will be another hybrid; I'll never go back to a full gasoline engine; I'm a conservative church attending Christian, I love Rush Limbaugh and support George Bush.

STU: They called you out, Glenn.

PAT: See? Fatty Fat Fatso.

GLENN: So hang on just a second. Your evidence

PAT: They've got you. They've got you.

GLENN: Your evidence is one visitor from hybridcars.com?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: From 2005?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Well, he may have visited again, since.

GLENN: Right, sure.

PAT: But we don't know. And besides, don't try to hide your real agenda. Quote, quote: Beck's comments could be dismissed as populist rhetoric, although such anti hybrid viewpoints have resulted in acts of vandalism.

GLENN: Antihybrid viewpoints have?

PAT: Yes, they have. For example, quote: I'm told a Prius was set on fire in Los Angeles.

GLENN: Oh, my goodness.

PAT: Unquote. Which by the way was one of at least eight attacks in four months and, quote, anti Prius vandalism dates back to 2004 when there was a spat of Priuses being, quote, keyed, unquote, in Las Vegas.

GLENN: Wow. A car being lit on fire in Los Angeles.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's rare.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: And an increase in car keying, that's I mean, that's quite a case.

PAT: See?

GLENN: that you're making there.

PAT: I told you. I told you.

GLENN: Did you happen to read the next sentence in the story?

PAT: No, sir, I did not.

GLENN: All right. Let me help you out. Quote: The most

PAT: You mock. That's all you've got. You mock.

GLENN: The most visible act of car related political vandalism occurred in 2003 when so called eco arsonists set blaze to 20 Hummer H2s valued in total at $3 million. What do you have to have, like three million hybrids to equal that? The Earth, the Earth Liberation Front, a radical fringe ecological group which claimed responsibility for the tax, end quote.

PAT: Okay, all right. Mr. Big oil, Exxon Valdez, coal in the lungs, black hearted, mania crazy person on a conspiratorial lunatic fringe!

GLENN: And?

PAT: And what?

GLENN: I mean, aren't you forgetting something? We're at the end.

PAT: Oh, yeah. And you're fat!

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
