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.

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.

The media went nuts after President Donald Trump said "Two Corinthians". But apparently, nobody cares when Joe Biden called the authors of Biblical Psalms "palmists" — twice.

During a Thanksgiving speech on Wednesday, Biden said, "I'm sure we can, we can pros-claim [sic] a palmist, with a palmist who wrote these following words, 'The lord is my strength and my shield and with my song, I give thanks to him.'"

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere pondered whether Biden actually meant to quote a fortune teller instead of a psalmist, but ultimately decided the former vice president likely had no idea what he was reading.

They also discussed the hairline fractures Biden suffered in his right foot on Saturday while playing his dog, and Glenn tossed out a few headlines he thought might work just a little too well.

The Supreme Court slapped down New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 restrictions on religious gatherings Wednesday, arguing that strict limitations on the number of people in churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship — while liquor stores, bike shops, and many other non-religious places face few or no restrictions at all — are in violation of the First Amendment.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere applauded Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who reportedly cast the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch who took specific aim at Gov. Cuomo for limiting religious gatherings to as few as 10 people in some areas, while imposing "no capacity restrictions on certain businesses he considers 'essential'."

"It turns out the businesses the Governor considers essential include hardware stores, acupuncturists, and liquor stores," Gorsuch said. "Bicycle repair shops, certain signage companies, accountants, lawyers, and insurance agents are all essential too."

"Government is not free to disregard the 1st Amendment in times of crisis," Gorsuch wrote in a separate opinion.

Gov. Cuomo has since called the Supreme Court ruling "moot" and "irrelevant" because he had recently lifted restrictions in most of the affected areas.

"This is a trick they play all the time. They've done this with Second Amendment cases as well," Stu noted. "They'll put a ridiculous restriction in that's obviously not constitutional, keep it in place for a year while it goes through the courts, and right before it gets to the Supreme Court they withdraw the rule. So then the case gets thrown out because it's moot."

Hey Joe, THIS is how you handle terrorists

Wikimedia Commons

If you haven't seen the new Apple TV+ drama Tehran, it's definitely worth your time. It tells the story of an Israeli spy who sneaks into Iran to set up an attack on Iran's nuclear program. Now that the new Bond movie is delayed, this show has a little bit of everything to hold you over: international spies, hackers, double agents.

But I digress...

No matter how Hollywood tries to invent these stories — and this one is definitely good — they always fall short of what happens in real life. What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated as he was traveling to his private villa just a few miles east of Tehran. The operation involved a team of over 60 people. Around 50 logistical support agents backed up a dozen gunmen. They knew everything. His schedule, his private address, his classified movements, the route...

Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three armored vehicles. When they approached the ambush site, the hit team cut off all the electricity in the surrounding area. A car bomb was then remotely detonated, taking out the rear vehicle in the convoy. 12 gunmen proceeded to open fire on the other two cars. Iran's top nuclear scientist was dead, and NONE of the hit squad were wounded or arrested.

Now you can already guess where the blame is being directed this morning. Almost immediately, the fingers began to point at both Israel and the United States. The mainstream media is trying to paint this as an effort by Trump to sabotage a Biden effort to restart the Iran Nuclear Deal. Remember that "masterful" stroke of Middle East foreign policy? You know, the deal that included $150 BILLION — in cash — that Obama and Biden knew would be used to kill Americans and destabilize the entire region. Remember that?

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it.

They claimed their way was the only path to peace. What did they get from it? Iran spread out all the way to the literal doorstep of Israel. The elite Iraqi troops of the Republican Guard were staging in Syria, plotting that ultimate attack to take back Jerusalem. The entire region was set to explode... but then Trump scuttled the deal. What did it lead to? Historic peace agreements between the Arab world and Israel.

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it. He reimposed sanctions and launched a campaign to kill terrorists rather than give them money.

John Brennan took to Twitter this weekend to call the assassination a criminal act.

It echoes what they said when the top terrorist in the world — Qassem Soleimani — was assassinated in Iraq. Coincidentally, the Iranian government published artwork over the weekend depicting Soleimani and the, now dead, nuclear scientist standing side by side.

You see, now matter how people like Brennan and Biden might try and say otherwise, this is exactly the type of person Iran's "Robert Openheimer" was: a terrorist in the same category as Soleimani (but obviously with a lot more dangerous capability).

Iran has been protecting this man for two decades. They called him merely "an academic," but denied the UN IAEA inspectors to ever question him.

The rhetoric Iran fed the global community was that their nuclear program didn't have anything to do with weapons, and that this nuclear scientist was involved in research to improve their energy programs. But in 2007, the CIA said this was a cover story. In 2008, the United States froze his assets, and the IAEA made it public that this scientist was leading Iran's nuclear weapons project.

Iran called it "Projects 110 and 111." Fakhrizadeh was tasked with finding out how to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and make it durable enough so that it could survive re-entry into the atmosphere on top of an ICBM.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists.

Obama and Biden's nuclear deal didn't stop ANY of this. Israel revealed in 2018 that Projects 110 and 111 continued. Fakhrizadeh was specifically called out as still being the main man in charge.

Biden thinks his policy of accommodation will somehow bring us the peace that Neville Chamberlain once thought was possible with Hitler. When has this borne fruit with any maniacal tyrant or terrorist... ever?!

And that's exactly what Iran and their thugs are. They're terrorists! They're not a legitimate regime. Long before ISIS, the terrorists in Iran stole a country, planning to spread their caliphate all over the world. Members of Al Qaeda, despite being Sunni, enjoy free sanctuary under their protection. They want to burn Israel to the ground. They chant "death to America"... It's actually a holiday there.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists. Biden wants peace with Iran, and he'll probably roll out a red carpet and offer them a few hundred billion more dollars. We know this doesn't work. To quote Reagan, "there's one way to have peace and you can have it in this second... surrender."

That's how you deal with terrorists, and — whether we were involved or not — another one was just taken out.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."
