GLENN: Jobs saved or created. Saved or created jobs, wow, that's fantastic! If you are scoring at home, it is now over 1 million jobs now.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've cut taxes for middle class families, extended and increased unemployment insurance and created and saved more than a million jobs.

GLENN: I mean, that would be great. Wouldn't that be a great stat if it weren't made up? I mean, created by Team Obama to save his presidency? I mean, they are creating and saving a presidency. That's what their job is. But like so many of the congressional districts where the jobs were supposedly created or saved, it is just that. It is made up. Put it another way, the way our grandparents or our parents would have stated it, it's a lie. But with a mostly complicit lap dog media, this administration continues to this day to get away with it. How much more time? It is just one of the many lies told and retold and told again that go mostly unchallenged. And none of it makes sense.

Do you remember the genius that was spilling out of the mouth of Joe Biden several months ago?

BIDEN: We're going to go bankrupt as a nation. Now, people, when I say that, people look at me and say, what are you talking about, Joe? You're telling me we've got to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt? The answer, yes, I'm telling you.

GLENN: Help me out on that. Somebody explain that to me. We're going to go bankrupt if we don't spend more money. You go to your banker and tell them that: We're going to go bankrupt if we don't spend more money. They say I'm a crazy man. Well, I would be if I believe lies like that. We would have to be a nation of imbiciles to accept that. Look, I'm telling you the only way you're going to be able to have your cake is to eat it. Wouldn't it be, wouldn't it be gone then? No, you'll have your cake. Just eat it. That's what I'm telling you. It's the only way you can have it is to eat it.

Can you imagine the arrogance that it takes to believe or the stupidity to believe that you actually have a shot over a period of time of pulling these lies off? Oh, but there's more. Now they're doing a new one. Try quadrupling the debt, quadrupling the debt in six months, quadrupling it in six months! Voting for all of the extravagant spending for the past couple of years as a U.S. senator and then disavowing any and all of the responsibility for any of this mess.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: What I reject is when some folks decide to sit on the sidelines and root for failure on healthcare or on energy or on our economy. What I reject is when some folks say we should go back to the past policies when it was those very same policies that got us into this mess in the first place.

Another way of putting it is when, you know, I'm busy, Nancy's busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else's mess, we don't want somebody sitting back saying you are not holding the mop the right way.

GLENN: Yeah.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Why don't you grab a mop, why don't you help clean up.

GLENN: That's some nerve. That is some nerve. Obama is almost as good as Vince the ShamWow guy. I love the part in the ShamWow commercials, you know, where he spills the cola on the carpet and you are just like, what, I'm just going to demonstrate how absorbent ShamWow is. And then he goes to show the liquid has seeped underneath the carpet but in the very next shot before he even touches the spill with the ShamWow, the liquid under the sample is gone. They've already cleaned it up. And then he presses the ShamWow to the carpet and he says...

VOICE: Without even putting any pressure, 50% of the cola right there. Are you following me, camera guy? The other 50%, the color starts to come up. No other towel's going to do that. It acts like a vacuum. And look at this. Virtually drawing on the bottom.

GLENN: That's unbelievable. I mean, is it just me or is anyone else thinking, ShamWow, Vince for green jobs czar! Are you getting this, camera guy? Look at this! Look at this! New healthcare bill cost $1.3 trillion by their own estimates, but it's also... look at this! ... deficit neutral! Yet another made up phrase in Obamaland.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I actually have said that it is important for us to make sure this thing is deficit neutral.

GLENN: Make sure deficit neutral.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Without tricks.

GLENN: Without transition.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I said I wouldn't sign a bill that didn't meet that criteria.

GLENN: That makes sense. What kind of tricks could there possibly be to use, you know, when you add the expense of $1.3 trillion but doesn't increase the spending or the deficit by a penny? What kind of tricks could there be? Maybe that's because the rich are going to pay for the whole burden? Except that as we showed you last night on Fox with the national debt. If you took every penny from every one of the Fortune 500 companies, all 500, you took every penny of the Fortune 500, the wealthiest companies on the planet, take every penny of their profit for a year, it wouldn't cover 1/10th of this disaster, let alone a drop in the bucket on the national debt. Every penny of the Fortune 500. It would take you 145 years to pay off the $12 trillion that we now owe. How are we going to do this? Answer? We're not. The president of the United States is lying to you. He will not tell you what these things actually cost and the ramifications. He will not tell you what healthcare will cost and who will pay. He has he has gone so far as to claim that this bloated government takeover of healthcare will, quote, fix the economy.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If we're serious about strengthening small businesses, if we're serious about creating a climate where entrepreneurs can succeed, if we're serious about giving you the chance to prosper and grow, I believe, this administration firmly believes that we need to pass health insurance reform in the United States of America. Now...

GLENN: Now what? Spending a trillion dollars, government taking over another industry, a sixth of our economy, that will create a climate where entrepreneurs can succeed, that will give you a chance to prosper and grow? That's inconceivable.

GLENN: Some of his comments are so incomprehensible that they don't even seem to be in English anymore. That's why it's important for us to stick together. That is why it is important that you seek out like minded people, you inform yourself first. You inform your friends, your neighbors, your family members about what is going on. If they won't listen to you, move on to the next person!

How many times did Noah say, get into the boat, get into the boat. How many people made fun of Noah, get into the boat, get into the boat. At some point the boat set sail. My only interest is the truth. I made a promise to myself after I read Thomas Jefferson back in 1995, pursue the truth. Question with boldness even the very existence of God. For if there be a god, he must surely honest questioning over blindfolded fear. I made a promise to myself that I would seek the truth. You, if you are a long time listener of mine, if I make a mistake, you know I lead with it. If I make a big mistake, I have on Terry Schiavo I was on the wrong side for a long time and then I took the unpopular view: I switched because a listener set me straight. My producer said, you can't do this! This is years ago when we first started the show. Stu wasn't with me. He's looking at me like, why do you always do this? You weren't with me. My producer said you can't do this! Yes, I can. I was wrong. "You'll just, I'll destroy your credibility." I won't have any credibility if I lie.

The other reason I do this is for my kids because I believe you would do the same thing if you were in my position and you believed what I believe. They will tell you that I just want to hurt the president, that I didn't have a problem when Bush was running up the deficits. I did; you did. I know better and you know better. You heard me then. You heard me last night; you hear me now. Has the message intensified? Yes! Because the situation has intensified. I don't know if you've noticed lately but despite the lies, despite the frustration, have you sensed I'm more optimistic now than I have been in a long time? It's because there's a good number, millions of Americans that are waking up. They haven't woken up yet in Washington on either side of the aisle. But millions of Americans have. It's about time to build the ark. That's what we're doing next year. We will preserve the republic. We are going to be peaceful, but we are not getting up from the counter. We are not going to sit in the back of the bus. We are going to link arms and we are going to stand together for the truth.

This Friday I'm going to be in Florida and I'm going to give you a sneak peek of what's coming. I will make the announcements on some of the things that are coming. I've moved this up because I have sensed a growing frustration in this country because things are becoming more critical, and I need you to I needed to look you in the eye and be able to sense, do I have you right? Do I sense your commitment? Am I right about you? I think I am. That you will stand and do the tough things. Because you're a parent or you're a grandparent. That you will change your life, that you will not be somebody who is a follower, you will not be somebody who is a victim. You will be a leader. Now, maybe I have that wrong but I don't think I do. But I sense a growing frustration as the country becomes more critical, and I wanted you to know that there's not only hope. There is a plan. And I want you to know that come I think January 5th after the holidays we return, this show is turning a corner. The TV show is turning a corner. I personally am turning a corner.

I talked a long time with my family this summer in the last few months and a long time with my wife. Where are we headed? What are you willing to put up with and do? All the chips. Everything changes. In fact, I just want you to see, I'll give you a sneak preview of just the sound design of the show, that we have some of the best sound designers in the country that in fact, they are the two best sound designers in the country. Sound design is what a show sounds like, you know, our theme and everything else. Here's just a this was just the prototype made for me to approve for what's coming in January.

GLENN: Things are about to change.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
