GLENN: All right. Let me quickly go back to Van Jones and tell you why this bothered you at Fort Hood, while you were watching the President, I know everybody has already talked about this, but I've been gone and I haven't heard anybody really spell out why this bothered you. When he talked for two minutes -- play the audio, please, of Van Jones, when he talked for two minutes prior to saying, Hey, by the way, huge tragedy at Fort Hood today, he was talking about Indians and this is the first audio piece that went off in my mind. I knew I had heard the word -- these kinds of words somewhere before that the President was now saying and it was spilling out into my living room. I'm hearing not the President. I'm hearing this.

MR. JONES: No more broken treaties, no more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect.

GLENN: Okay. So, I started thinking about Van Jones. Now, this is in the three minutes before the President even starts to address Fort Hood. And I start thinking about Van Jones and then I remembered that I wanted to talk to you about something that we had missed and I think everybody had missed in New York in the 23rd -- while everybody was talking about the New York 23rd, they didn't notice that there was -- in the law in New York and it went -- really, nobody even talked about it. Do you want prisoners to be able to go work for community organizations? Sure. That sounds like a good idea. Uh-huh. So, now prisoners can leave the walls and they can work for community organizations, just pulling a couple of ideas out, Americorp, maybe, something like that. And it made me think that we got off Van Jones too early because we were working on a story about Van Jones speaking in San Quinton last March, where he told a group of inmates from the San Quinton Times, quoting, We need genius. We need entrepreneurial brilliance, people who will reimagine possibilities. We need you. The whole point of that speech was to give jobs to people in prison, to let them work, something that has just passed in New York and nobody paid attention. Naturally, I think we all agree that this is -- it's only an extremist that think that we shouldn't be looking for tomorrow's entrepreneurs in prisons, not colleges or tech schools. No, no. Prisons. That's where the, quote, genius and entrepreneurial brilliance will from. Guess who else focused directly on prison inmates for their recruiting efforts. Let me ask the question again. Van Jones looking for new recruits, entrepreneurial brilliance. New York now voting to say, yes, if you're a prisoner, you can go to work for a community organization. Hum. Sounds awfully familiar. Sounds like the Van Jones plan. So, we know Van Jones and the extreme left wants to recruit in prisons, but who else wants to recruit in prisons? Who looks at not just the entrepreneurial brilliance in prison but who looks to prisons as their No. 1 spot to recruit, No. 1? Al Qaeda. The No. 1 place for Islamic radicalization in America is our prison system, which brings me full circle back to the speech where Barack Obama meandered around before addressing the Islamic terrorist slaughter of our men and women in uniform, on a military base right here at home, in Texas, and then he told us not to jump to my conclusions. Fortunately, President Obama has never jumped to my conclusions before.

OBAMA: I don't know all the facts, but that -- the Cambridge police acted stupidly.

GLENN: Hum. So, now you can draw your own conclusions from all of this, but my point is something wasn't right, something isn't right. When we can trace policy back to a radical revolutionary communist self-titled communist Van Jones and make the connections directly back to Barack Obama's agenda, maybe it was divine providence that this happened on the same day, so we could actually see the connections, mistake make these connections during a speech following, call it what you want to call it, a terrorist massacre. There's ample reason to be concerned. Trust your gut. Look. A lot of people will talk about may have been American rights. It's important. Treaties were broken, but in the grand scheme of things and priorities, the day of a national tragedy, yeah, I don't think I as the President would be doing that on that day, but you stay awake. You stay involved in the process. You are needed. You are not a sunshine patriot. If you just love the flag, well, just old glory, you're not going to be of any help. Your country needs you now more than ever before. You feel it like I do. This is not who we are, this is not the America our grandparents gave us. Check the records. You won't find a single shout out in any address on a tragedy from any American President in history. You won't find any Presidents advocating reparations for special interest groups, making the case for redistribution of wealth or making political promises to people before he even gets around the mentioning the death of 13 Americans who volunteered to serve not Americorp, not ACORN, but the ideas and the ideals of the founders of the United States of America.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."

On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.
