Glenn, O'Reilly announcement


It's time for the truth straight up, whether you like it or not. Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck are teaming up and going on tour. Your town may never be the same.

Visit http://www.boldfreshtour.com/ for complete tour information...

GLENN: Radicals and revolutionaries are running our country. Our healthcare is being destroyed by unions and special interests. We've got terrorists going on trial in Manhattan. Can things get worse? Yes. Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck are going on the road together. And we have Bill O'Reilly on with me now. Hi, bill.

O'REILLY: Hey, how are we doing, by the way? Do you have any idea?

GLENN: Yeah, sold out in Westbury, New York.

O'REILLY: Sold out already?

GLENN: Almost sold out in Tampa at the Sun Dome.

O'REILLY: Is that right? What's the capacity there?

O'REILLY: What, 8,000?

O'REILLY: Well, so this is like one day and we sold out Westbury music fair and Tampa already?

GLENN: Well, not Tampa still has tickets available, Bill.

O'REILLY: What did you say? What was the second one?

GLENN: Almost sold out in Tampa.

O'REILLY: Almost.

GLENN: And then about half sold out in South Carolina and Virginia.

O'REILLY: What's wrong with those people?

GLENN: I don't know.

O'REILLY: How come we're not all sold out there? Don't people realize how historic and monumental this show is going to be?

GLENN: I don't think they do. Some might say that's a little grandiose of you to say.

O'REILLY: Well, I just want to make sure that everybody listening in those areas, Norfolk, Virginia and Charleston, South Carolina and few tickets left in Tampa understand that the show is mostly about me. And so they don't have to worry about the other about you so much.

GLENN: Is that really what it is? I notice, you know, I say we'll do you are not sure, Bill, we'll do a show together; it will be fun.

O'REILLY: Yeah, picture Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon. Guess what role you're going to play?

GLENN: Johnny Carson.

O'REILLY: Yes.

GLENN: So I say, sure, I'll go on the road with you. And then all of a sudden he comes back and he's like, I got the name of the tour. All right, that's great. What is it? Bold Fresh.

O'REILLY: The Bold Fresh Tour. Is there a better name on Earth?

GLENN: Isn't that the name of your book that you've been hawking for, like, four years?

O'REILLY: Beck, you want to call it the Arguing With Idiots tour?

GLENN: Yes, I do.

O'REILLY: Is that what you want to do?

GLENN: Yes, I do. I'll be arguing with you.

O'REILLY: Guess who the idiots will be? Wise up, man. I'm bold, you're fresh. I mean, that's what's going on here.

GLENN: Is that what it is? All right. So I come out, let me just say let me tell the story the way Bill O'Reilly's going to tell it. So Beck's going to do a few minutes as an opening act and then I come out and then I do 30 minutes and then we break and then, I don't know, Beck does something else and then, I don't know, maybe he turns the table on me and asks me a few questions as well. I don't know. It could be anybody doing that role, but I will be on the stage.

O'REILLY: Yeah. Well, I don't know if you are getting the texture of it. Let me, let me present it to people.

GLENN: Okay.

O'REILLY: So they would actually want to see the show.

GLENN: Yeah, sure. Well, wait a minute. Didn't I say that you would be there?

O'REILLY: Okay. But you know? Look. Some people have mixed feelings about me, you know.

GLENN: No.

O'REILLY: The audience loves you and we're on your program. So let's exploit that.

GLENN: Are you saying that your audience does not love you?

O'REILLY: You know, I think some in my audience feel a little bit this way and that sometimes. Beck comes out in full Beck regalia. So he will be dressed as the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. He comes down, he's got the blackboard, he's got all the accoutrements. He does 35, 40 minutes, you know. He whips the crowd into an apocalyptic frenzy where they are all basically going to buy bunkers when they leave the arena.

GLENN: They all have bunkers, Bill. You are the only one who hasn't committed.

O'REILLY: They are buying machine guns and

GLENN: Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. If the world starts spiraling out of control and we're in Tampa, you are going to be out in the parking lot kicking rocks, man, asking yourself, where did everybody go?

O'REILLY: It will be the first to admit if your vision comes true, my head will be on a stick somewhere. Okay?

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: All right. So Beck presents his vision of the country and then he is removed by a couple of guys in white coats. He is removed so he can rest. And then I come out and I give you the no spin look at where I think things are heading. So you get two distinctive points of view which, of course

GLENN: What is that look? Hang on, what is that look?

O'REILLY: Depends on, it's January and now it's November. Right now, where I think we are right now is I think President Obama's lost control of the process. I absolutely think that and you know I have not been an Obama barber.

GLENN: I know. And you also last I think it was last week I heard you say that you were on with Dennis Miller. And Dennis Miller who you know has made fun of me relentlessly for being a, I'm just saying somebody that might have a bomb shelter. You two were talking about an insurrection coming.

O'REILLY: Tax revolt.

GLENN: He used the word insurrection. And not in a comedic way.

O'REILLY: Yeah, tax revolt. I think people, when they figure out how badly they are going to get hurt in the next few years, there's going to be a tea party on taxes and it's going to get nasty. Nancy Pelosi's going to be bobbing up and down in the Boston harbor. But let's get back to the tour for just a minute.

GLENN: I don't think that's necessary.

O'REILLY: So after Beck comes on, then I come on and I give my state of the union because it will be around the state of the union time. We're doing this in the end of January. So you get two distinctive views which is really the beauty of the program because you don't get, you know, the same. You get different. So you hear Beck and then you hear O'Reilly and then we take it in gear and Beck stuff and we'll have T shirts.

GLENN: I don't think I have Beck stuff. I've never seen any Beck

O'REILLY: We have Bold Fresh Tour shirts and you are on them.

GLENN: I don't think I gave permission.

O'REILLY: We got bold fresh hats, we sign books, it's going to be great. And then Beck and I come back

GLENN: Wait, wait, sign books?

O'REILLY: Your book, too. You've got 15 books in the best seller list. We'll have them stacked in the corner, all right? I only have one book. You have 15 books.

GLENN: I know. You should I mean, I read the book no, listen.

O'REILLY: I know what you're doing, but

GLENN: No, I read your bold fresh book. I read it, I believe when it first came out in 1973. And it was very good.

O'REILLY: Thank you, Catcher in the Rye.

GLENN: I mean, it is a classic at this point.

O'REILLY: Right. But it's still on the best seller list, Beck. You know, I mean, Beck's got books on the best sellers but they are all thematic, Christmas Sweater, Christmas socks, Christmas earmuffs. I mean, it just goes down the apparel line. But people buy it.

GLENN: That's an idea. Write that down. Glenn Beck apparel.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: Remember that.

O'REILLY: But then after the intermission on the Bold Fresh Tour, we come back, there will be two chairs, two glasses of water and then I'll ask Beck one question, he will ask me one. Back and forth. And that's going to be nobody knows because I'm not going to tell you what questions I'm going to ask you and I'm sure you won't tell me. Nobody knows where that's going to go.

GLENN: I'm going to have two piles of questions. Right rye the authorities may have to be called.

GLENN: I want you to know I'm going to have two piles of questions. I'm going to have the nice pile and the, oh, Bill decided to jump ugly on that last question to Glenn, huh? And that will be the second pile.

O'REILLY: So this is why this thing is going to be so much fun because it's going to be a lot different than the radio and television presentations that we make. And neither of us know how this is going to go. This could spiral out of control easily.

GLENN: I have a feeling the only one that gets hurt in this whole scenario is me.

O'REILLY: I don't think so, Beck. I think being associated with me no matter what happens is a plus for you.

GLENN: You know what I like about you?

O'REILLY: Everything.

GLENN: Humility. Your humility. Okay, you could go to BoldFreshTour.com and grab your tickets. Again they are almost sold out in Tampa at the Sun Dome and it is January 29th at 8:00 p.m. They are sold out already in New York. In Charleston, South Carolina we're going to be at the coliseum there 1:00 Saturday, January 30th. And then in Virginia at Norfolk in the Convocation Center at Saturday night, 8:00 p.m.

O'REILLY: Be a lot of fun. And people we're keeping the ticket prices moderate. And we are. Beck and I did that on purpose. We could have charged more, but we want the folks to be able to see us. And we want

GLENN: He's not can I tell you something? Bill's not the capitalist that I am.

O'REILLY: No. We kept them down.

GLENN: No, you kept them down. You stepped on you stepped on my business partner's throat and said keep them down.

O'REILLY: That's right.

GLENN: And I said, Bill, gouge the rich.

O'REILLY: This isn't the Puff Daddy tour. I mean, people can afford this. And they make great Christmas gifts. And particularly for people you don't like. Give them the tickets. It's a great Christmas gift.

GLENN: Yeah, they will be chewing their arm off to get out. Okay. So that is ham. Now Bill, let me ask you this.

O'REILLY: Sure.

GLENN: Why do you suppose the president is, why are we going to have a trial of killers, of terrorists here in New York?

O'REILLY: Well, from what I can put together here, it's totally insane. I mean, this guy's already admitted it. So why do we bother putting him on trial? He's committed it. You know, when you commit a terrorist act or a crime and they are two different distinctive things and we're going to deal with that on The Factor tonight.

GLENN: Hey, would you ask him a question for me?

O'REILLY: Sure.

GLENN: How does a if somebody is shooting at you, how does the bullet bounce off your siding of your house? Because it didn't even because when I heard that when Lou Dobbs was being shot at, I thought this is a bad thing, this is a very, very bad thing. But he lives in a section of the country where there are hunters.

O'REILLY: Jersey, yeah.

GLENN: And, you know, the bullet bounced off the siding of his house. That sounds like it might have been shot a long, long, long, long, long distance.

O'REILLY: Yeah, the problem was etched on the bullet was... this one's for you, Lou. So I think that was a hint. So anyway, I'll ask him about what was

GLENN: My producer looks at me and says, really?

O'REILLY: No.

GLENN: No.

STU: I believe him.

GLENN: This is why my career is tubed, going out on the Bold Fresh Tour because everybody will say they will blame that on me.

O'REILLY: This is so why it is so valuable for you to be associated with me. This is why. Let's get back to the Khalid Sheikh Mohammed deal. The guy's admitted it. He shouldn't be going on trial anyway. He should just be shot. I don't even believe in capital punishment but that's what the military tribunal would do. And these pinheads that want the trial in New York, I think there are two reasons. The ACLU crew which is pushing it and Holder, the attorney general, they want to put the Bush administration on trial, waterboarding on trial, the CIA on trial. That's what they want to do. They want to humiliate all of the war on terror, Bush/Cheney axis. That's their goal. Okay? And that will happen. Obama himself, his basic in my opinion is Pontius Pilate here. It's Pontius Pilate in Latin but we see Pontius Pilate in America.

GLENN: Do they say Pontius Pilate in Latin America?

O'REILLY: The argument, he just stands by and washes his hands of him.

GLENN: No, no, you're wrong.

O'REILLY: See, I don't believe he's the architect.

GLENN: Oh, I do.

O'REILLY: See, I think Rahm Emanuel is the architect as they call Karl Rove the architect of the Bush administration.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: See, you give Obama far too much, in my opinion, credit for being this insidious guy who sits there in the basement with

GLENN: Well, they haven't gotten anything done now, have they, in the last nine months?

O'REILLY: That's true. And even Saturday Night Live

GLENN: No, it's not true. No, it's not true. They have gotten framework through that will boggle America's mind.

O'REILLY: Oh, okay. I mean, I thought you meant legislation that actually is on the board. No, you see them as subverting the country and setting up this far left paradise that they can walk into. I think there are elements in the Obama administration trying to do that. I agree with you there, that there are elements trying to do it.

GLENN: You are going to be

O'REILLY: But I think he's much more of a selfish guy.

GLENN: Everybody will be gone. We'll be in our fallout shelters with our canned food and you'll be eating the brains of dogs within a week.

O'REILLY: There you go. You see, this is what I'm going to have to deal with and I'm going to have to have material to counterman it.

GLENN: No, you'll never be able to

O'REILLY: He's got two and a half years left. I say only two because he's going to have to campaign for reelection hard. He's only got a short window. Even though he's only been president for less than a year, he's only got two more years.

GLENN: What happens if what happens if this country is hit? I mean, we've already been hit I don't know if you heard

O'REILLY: Yeah, Fort Hood was a terrorist.

GLENN: Yeah, it absolutely was. I don't know if you heard what Chuck Schumer was. Chuck Schumer blamed it on the State of Texas because he said it's too easy to buy guns in Texas.

O'REILLY: They always do that. I mean, they did that at the Virginia Tech massacre, Columbine, they always do that.

GLENN: This is a terrorist attack. This isn't some nut job.

O'REILLY: No, that's right.

GLENN: This is a terrorist attack.

O'REILLY: And we said that from the jump.

GLENN: So what happens, what happens, Bill, when all of a sudden, you know, we are hit again? We're hit

O'REILLY: Well, Obama loses. I mean, look, the American people are turning against see, look. This is what I don't get about you. If you look at the opinion polls, the American people have already turned against Barack Obama. They have already identified him as a liar. Most people, 60% see him that way. His approval ratings are below 50%. He doesn't have any legislation that he can call his own. And he's got chaos overseas. So the American people are basically saying, okay, we elected him on hope. He's not doing the job. Unemployment is more than 10%. So we don't like him very much anymore. Now, the only way he countermans that is if he gets a few big victories. And I'm not seeing where those victories are going to come from. So I think that folks themselves are going to blunt what you see inevitable drift toward socialism. I think the people are going to rise up in the tax realm and other areas and basically make it impossible for him to govern.

GLENN: I hope you're right. I hope you're right. I really hope. You are absolutely wrong, but I hope you're right.

O'REILLY: When have I ever been wrong?

GLENN: The name of the tour is the bold and fresh tour. He's bold, I'm fresh. I guess. Bill O'Reilly and Beck on the road. Again tickets almost sold out at the Sun Dome in Tampa. Charleston, South Carolina, we'll be there on Saturday, January 30th. Tampa is Friday, January 29th at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, January 30th at 1:00 p.m. in Charleston, South Carolina and then the night in Norfolk, Virginia Saturday, January 30th, 8:00 p.m. The tickets are on sale now. You can go to BoldFreshTour.com. Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly, or as he likes to say, Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck.

O'REILLY: And the other guy.

GLENN: Bill, thanks a lot, we'll talk to you.

O'REILLY: Okay, Beck, thanks.

GLENN: By the way, hang on. Are you there, Bill? Bill, are you there?

O'REILLY: Yes, I am.

GLENN: I just want to say this publicly. To my audience I get a lot of heat from people. They say, Bill O'Reilly, man, like he's really trying to give you a hard time, everything else. Bill O'Reilly has been a gentleman, a statesman and a good friend to me the whole time, and he has absolutely no reason. He really is like Johnny Carson. There's no reason for him to have to do this. He's just doing it because he's a good guy. And I appreciate that, Bill. I want you to know that.

O'REILLY: You are a big talent and I think the chemistry between you and me on The Factor is terrific and we're going to have to translate that to live appearances. That's going to a lot of fun.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Bill, appreciate it.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
