GLENN: From high above, high above Times Square, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. This is the third most listened to show in all of America and the number 100 most influential person in art. Uh huh, uh huh. (Laughing). What is where did you find this, Stu?

STU: Glenn, this is ArtReview magazine.

GLENN: ArtReview magazine. And what are the criteria? What is this?

STU: Well, the magazine announced this morning the list of art world's power 100 and several prominent L.A. names were among the illustrious including as you know, and you are very familiar, Pat, Eli Broad who came into the set of

GLENN: Oh, I love Eli. He's so broad. Oh, Govan is on this?

STU: Govan is on it.

PAT: You couldn't have a list without Govan.

STU: Obviously I could have just said this but obviously Tim Blum and Jeff Poe sharing Number 31.

GLENN: They share it this year, huh?

STU: Yeah. Obviously 16, just say it with me, Agnes Gund and, of course, at number 28 obviously, Ann Philbin and, of course, number 58, Richard Serra. And at 86 obviously Victorina.

GLENN: Oh, Victorina, finally, finally she's does it give an explanation of how I made this list?

STU: You are number 100 on the list.

GLENN: So I'm in the hot 100.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Of the most influential people in art.

STU: Now, shockingly

GLENN: I love this.

STU: Shockingly enough, but the L.A. Times when reporting this story, even with all those gigantic names on the list has used your picture, the guy who's at number 100, for some reason.

GLENN: Not Victorina Miro?

STU: Or number 20, Mike... Kelley or number 29, Matthew... Higgs. Right. So you'd think with all those pictures to choose from, you wouldn't

GLENN: Right.

STU: But shockingly enough they put it at number 100, I assume to make fun of well, I was going to say make fun of you because of your art criticism. But maybe there's something deeper here. Maybe they understand the artistic talent of Glenn Beck.

GLENN: You know what it is? You know what it is? You know what it is? It is this is a very dangerous thing that these people are they are playing with 99 lives. Because artists are very sensitive and now they see my name on there and they are like, this list it's almost like the Nobel Prize. This list used to mean something. It's

PAT: Well, it's like the Maxim hot 100 babes where they took up a space with Michelle Obama.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: And took some, you know, nubile 22 year old buxom babe who had had, you know, $5,000 worth of surgery.

GLENN: Are you saying that I don't really I am not the most, 100 most important people in the art world?

PAT: In this analogy I suppose you could draw that conclusion.

STU: Oh, I thought you were talking about number 85, Daniel... Buchholz.

PAT: Who's number one? We haven't even talked about number one.

STU: Oh, my God, you are right. I can't even believe this. I'll give you the top 3 because this is big. Number 3, sir Nicholas Serota. Yeah! Whew.

GLENN: I call him Sir Nick.

STU: At number 2, Glenn D. Lowry!

PAT: Lowry was number 2 this year?

GLENN: That's a crime.

PAT: I mean, I wouldn't even put him in the top 10.

STU: Ahead of Larry Gagosian? I mean, come on!

PAT: Larry? I know, I know.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Do they say why? Is there any explanation?

STU: There is a I didn't give you number one. People are like, what don't get cut off now.

GLENN: You wait. Wait for the magazine or the website or whatever this thing is.

STU: Number one is Hans Ulrich Obrist.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: For his work did they mention his works this year?

GLENN: It was the blue period. This was for his blue period called ya, sure.

STU: One of the most notable inclusions in this year's list is political conservative commentator Glenn Beck who came in at number 100. Beck's place on the list is no doubt due to his recent controversial foray into art criticism when he lambasted art created for New York's Rockefeller Center.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

PAT: Or perhaps they saw the George Washington painting. There you go.

GLENN: Could be. No, they haven't even seen that. I'm changing that. I've decided to change that.

STU: To change what?

GLENN: The George Washington painting. Truth and Deceit is what I like to call it. Truth is on the top. It's Gilbert Stuart's painting of George Washington, as interpreted by me. And I saw his unfinished work really I'm just practicing for my art interview. I saw his unfinished work really more of a I saw more of the empty space there and I thought, George Washington really just rings truth to me.

PAT: I've always looked at that as opulent, not overly ostentatious.

GLENN: And I thought really if this unfinished work were folded, which you never do, but if it were folded and stored some place, well, like the holy shroud of Turin, what would be the reverse of the image of George Washington and truth?

PAT: I see. And your conclusion was?

GLENN: Well, because I thought it was too politically incorrect, I originally had painted FDR. But seeing that I don't think it could get any worse, I went with the original idea and I repainted over. I'm beginning that process now of putting Barack Obama's face as the reverse of George Washington.

PAT: Excuse me?

GLENN: Hmmm?

PAT: Excuse me? Who?

GLENN: I just thought it was you know, art is to make to push the edges of society, get you to think, get you out of your comfort zone, you know? It's the one safe space that we as artists need to do, you know?

PAT: Won't that be interesting to see if that is a safe space for you.

GLENN: Oh, no, of course it is.

PAT: Of course.

STU: You are one of the most powerful men in art. Of course.

GLENN: I'm one of the most powerful people in art. And I plan on next year being number 25.

STU: Really? You are going to move up?

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

STU: I like it.

PAT: Move up 75 spots?

GLENN: Because there's no there's just my love of the openness and the inclusiveness of the art world that has inspired my idea of having an antipropaganda propaganda art show, and we're doing that here in New York which I think is going to be roundly accepted and praised for its challenge that it presents to society.

STU: You know who I know will be there is, of course, Number 11, Iwan Wirth.

GLENN: Oh, U?

STU: Iwan Wirth.

GLENN: He is. Sir Ted is also going to be there, which he is fantastic.

STU: You know what? At number 14, Jay Jopling, there's no way you can keep that guy away from there, I'll tell you that much.

GLENN: Yeah. So I thank you for the honor, art world, and believe me I'm not going to squander that. I'm going to make sure that everybody's very well aware that you are so accepting of this small humble, dare I say it, just like you, artist.

STU: I just hope the commissioner of art does not come out and say you're not allowed a list because

GLENN: I've been told now I can't own an art gallery.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Wow. The commissioner of art has said that?

GLENN: Yes, the commissioner of art has said that.


 

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
