Kids say the darndest things...

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. So I want to finish up the Falcon story. I mean, why worry if your kid's name Falcon. Maybe you could fly. I swear I thought Falcons could fly. This is the story from Colorado and the big flying muffin that actually had everybody, you know, including me freaking out a little bit saying, good heavens, man. And when it was starting to come down towards Earth, I'm just thinking there's no way that kid's going to be able to survives any kind of impact. And then I see the guys out with the shovels beating the muffin.

PAT: Had shovels and axes.

GLENN: Why not just shoot it out of the sky, guys? And the kid was at home. Now, could kids think that they got into trouble and, you know, hide? Yeah, I guess. I mean, I think if you beat your kids they would hide like that, would they? I mean, have your kids ever hidden because they thought they were in so much trouble?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: Yeah, I don't think so, either.

PAT: But I've never built a giant muffin in my backyard, either.

GLENN: So we don't know.

PAT: I can't really relate to the story.

GLENN: We don't know because we've never built the muffin. But the kid and his dad is on Wolf Blitzer and here's what happens.

BLITZER: And Falcon was really in the garage this whole time. I don't know if Falcon can hear me but was he because I know at some point he fell asleep in that garage, but he was hiding out because he thought you were going to punish him for something that happened earlier in the day. Did you hear anything, did he hear you screaming out Falcon, Falcon?

FALCON’S DAD: Did you hear us calling your name at any time?

FALCON: Mmhmm.

FALCON’S DAD: You did?

FALCON’S MOM: You did?

FALCON’S DAD: Then why didn’t you come out?

FALCON: You guys said that, um, we did this for the show.

FALCON'S DAD: Yeah.

GLENN: Wait. Stop, stop, stop, stop, hold it. So wait a minute. So you said

STU: You guys said.

GLENN: We did this for the show.

STU: Right.

PAT: So in other words, you told me not to come out.

STU: Yeah, implication was we wanted you to hide so we could get some publicity. That's what everyone's saying it is. Now, you have to the previous thing that he was asked, he just repeated the last two words his dad said.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: And then he just kind of blurts out. But I mean

PAT: Sounds bad.

STU: It sounds bad.

PAT: Very.

STU: I think there is an outside possibility.

GLENN: I think it sounds a little worse than bad.

STU: See, I think there's an outside possibility that he's just, the kid's just like, he's just saying words. Listen to what he can you go back a few seconds there and listen to the first thing he says?

VOICE: You did?

STU: Go back a little earlier than that.

GLENN: What is he?

PAT: 6.

VOICE: Falcon, did you hear us calling your name at any time? You did?

VOICE: You did?

VOICE: Then why didn't you come out?

STU: That's the mom, I think.

PAT: Yeah, that's the mom.

FALCON: You guys said.

GLENN: You guys said.

FALCON: That we did this for a show.

PAT: (Laughing). There's no chance. There's not even an outside chance.

GLENN: This is the best episode of... kids say the darnedest things.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: It really is.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: It's hard to get around it.

PAT: It's tough.

GLENN: If you think the train went off the tracks there, here's where the train really goes off the tracks. Listen to Dad's response.

STU: This is are you saying you want to go to the part where Wolf presses him on it a little bit?

GLENN: Falcon, Falcon said lie, lie.

PAT: Caw, caw.

GLENN: Birds don't fly at midnight.

VOICE: Richard Haney, the father of little Falcon. Richard, earlier in the show I asked you to relay the question to Falcon. He was hiding in the garage for about four hours. And I asked you to ask him, why didn't he come out after he heard you and his mom and everybody else screaming for Falcon. And you said to him, Falcon, why didn't you come out. And Falcon said, you guys said that... we did this for the show and you said, mmm. What did he mean, we did this for the show?

VOICE: I have no idea. I think he was talking about the media that had been asking him a lot of questions. So somebody asked him that question earlier.

GLENN: Hang on, hang on. As a dad... I'm having a hard time making that one work.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Maybe, maybe as a dad I'm thinking of Raphe. He's 5.

STU: Yeah. I mean, think about it this way. He's had cameras in front of him before. They have been on two shows. And he knows whenever he sees cameras around, he's on the show. And now there's all these cameras around again. I mean, he's 5 years old. Maybe he's just thinking that this is part of the show.

GLENN: So maybe he thinks, yeah, the interview.

PAT: Kind of a stretch. Kind of a stretch.

GLENN: Now wait a minute, wait a minute, let's give him the benefit of the doubt here. Let's think this through a little bit. That maybe he thinks that no?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Hang on, hang on. Then maybe he doesn't want maybe the kid thought he was talking about now, we're going to come on, we're just going to do this for the show. Not the balloon ride but this interview for the show. We're going to do this for the show.

PAT: Maybe the kid is the youngest dementia victim of all time.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: And you don't buy what he's saying.

GLENN: You don't buy it?

PAT: Not at all, not at all.

GLENN: Listen. It gets worse here.

VOICE: I have no idea. I think he was talking about the media been asking him a lot of questions. So somebody had asked him that question earlier.

BLITZER: Do you want to ask him now? I don't know if he can hear me, what he meant, he said we did this for the show?

GLENN: Oh, boy.

PAT: Love the delay.

BLITZER: Do you want to ask Falcon?

STU: Not that big of a delay, though.

FALCON'S DAD: Falcon, they want to know why you were in the attic, okay, for so long.

PAT: He's terror stricken right now. He doesn't know what to say.

FALCON'S DAD: And why you say it again?

BLITZER: Why he said, he said we did this for the show in explaining why he didn't come out of the attic.

FALCON'S DAD: Yeah, let me interrupt this real quick because I think

GLENN: You are not interrupting anything. It's dead silent.

FALCON'S DAD: I can see the direction you guys are hedging on this. Because earlier you had asked the police officers the questions. The media out front we weren't even going to do this interview, and I'm kind of appalled after all of the feelings that I went through up and down that

GLENN: What did you go through?

VOICE: you guys are trying to suggest something else, okay?

PAT: No, it was your son that suggested something else.

VOICE: I'm really appalled because they said out in front that this would be the end and I wouldn't have to be bothered for the rest of the week with any shows or anything. So we said, okay, fine, we'll do this.

PAT: He is on the Today Show this morning, by the way.

VOICE: So I'm kind of appalled that you guys would say something like that, you know?

PAT: Look, all this guy wants to do is get away from the media. That's all he wants to do.

GLENN: And the best way to hide is on the Today Show.

STU: Right. And two separate reality shows.

PAT: I'm only going to do this one and then I'm done for the week except for the Today Show tomorrow and then I'm going to do the Tomorrow Show today and then I'm going to do it tonight.

GLENN: I may do Good Morning America if I can get off the Tonight Show in time for the Good Morning show. I mean, jeez.

PAT: Come on, man.

STU: I feel like there you have to allow for a kid saying something dumb that makes no sense. I feel like that's part of it, isn't it? But he does not he's not convincing in his defense, I will say.

PAT: Not at all. Not at all. She's blaming Wolf Blitzer for asking the question. You've got to ask the question when a kid says that.

STU: You've got to.

PAT: He's not inferring that. The kid did.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...
