GLENN: So it's always a pleasure turning on my computer in the morning and seeing all the things that have been written about me and this time drawn about me.

PAT: And I'll tell you that is not a flattering drawing of you, either.

GLENN: You don't think so?

PAT: No.

STU: You are not that portly. I would actually say you are thinner in real life than that picture.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Which is not something I say normally.

GLENN: No, it's not.

PAT: No, it really isn't. It really isn't.

GLENN: Forget the ghosts and goblins. Why not dress up as someone truly scary this year. Our annual collection of Halloween masks highlights some of the year's most frightening faces. This is from Forbes. And the 100 or the top ten scariest people of 2009, I'm number one.

PAT: Wow. Who's number two?

GLENN: Number two is Rod Blagojevich.

PAT: You are scarier than Rod Blagojevich?

GLENN: Apparently, yeah. We have Steve Forbes on?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Steve? How are you?

FORBES: Well, better than you.

GLENN: Forbes is making me the number one scariest man in America?

FORBES: Well, hey, you know, people always want to be at the top of our list. We just happened to pick the wrong list.

GLENN: Not this one. I mean, isn't it am I spreading too many free market principles?

FORBES: It was a mis it was a miscommunication. We were going to put you on the most admired, most beloved, most reasonable, most enlightened list.

GLENN: Right, right.

FORBES: But we figured if we did that, it would yeah, we wanted to put a mask on you so you wouldn't get killed by the liberals.

GLENN: I mean, here's the competition: Rod Blagojevich, Bernie Madoff, Michael Jackson, David Letterman, Michael Moore, Roman Polanski. You've got a rapist who is nine slots lower than I am.

PAT: That's not good.

GLENN: Not good.

PAT: That seems bad.

GLENN: That's not good. That's not good.

FORBES: Well, as they say, people love to be on our list.

GLENN: No.

FORBES: We just happen, we got you on the wrong list.

GLENN: Wrong list.

FORBES: We normally would put you on the 400 list but we respect your privacy.

GLENN: That's right. So Steve, let me ask you real quick. We were talk

FORBES: By the way, this does show, even though I make you look like, you know, a true liberal, my conservatism, it shows we believe in diversity here.

GLENN: Yes, it does.

FORBES: The universe still has its job.

GLENN: Yes, it does. We were just talking about I've only got two minutes with you. We were just talking about George Soros. He is starting yet another he is going to dump another $50 million into a new antifree market think tank. Steve, help me out with the thinking. Do you know George?

FORBES: I've met him.

GLENN: Okay.

FORBES: But we're not friends.

GLENN: Help me I can imagine. Help me out with the thinking of people who become billionaires, make $9 billion last year in his hedge fund and yet he wants to close the door on everybody else. How does this work?

FORBES: Well, it's typical human nature. Once you've arrived, you want not you yourself but once the

GLENN: Well, I'm on the number one in Forbes, I'm on that list.

FORBES: Well, that's to keep the IRS away. You know, we want to keep the liberals away.

GLENN: Right.

FORBES: But, and in terms of people like George Soros, it gets to one of the phenomenons and that is why do rich people hate capitalism. And they have this misconception that capitalism is about greed where it's about serving the needs and wants of others and a lot of these people feel once they make it, they feel guilty about it and they want to show, oh, no, we're human, we're liberal, we're kind, we don't believe in this dog eat dog blah, blah blah which is a caricature as we know anyway and so they turn against it. And so Soros is not alone in this. Many people who make a turn against it. And even the phrases that we use. For example, people say, well, when you make it, you should give back. Well, you should give.

GLENN: It shouldn't be taken.

FORBES: But give back sounds like you took something that didn't belong to you.

GLENN: Steve Forbes, thanks.


 

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
