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.


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.


There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
