GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. I have to tell you it is I know it is the day before Thanksgiving and I want to concentrate on a few things that I am thankful for, but there are also things, I guess I'm thankful for me being able to control my temper because what is happening with the Navy SEALs now is enough. Yesterday I told you on this program that I was I don't think change do you think changing my policy on

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: on the war?

PAT: An addendum, an update.

GLENN: Yeah, I think it's just an update. I no longer support the military actions that we're in because the way we're doing them. I don't believe that we are fighting to win. I believe that we are creating another Vietnam and I believe we are selling our military out, and I believe if this president doesn't get serious about our troops, treat them right, put them as our first priority, he should bring them home, and I understand what that means. I know that if we leave in Afghanistan, it creates a vacuum and everything that we have done has been for naught because the Taliban will come back in and we will have all of these cells start growing again, and they are cancer, and I get that. But I am not going to ask someone to die and fight in my name unless they have the full might and power of the United States government behind them. And now what we have is a new story that, you remember the Blackwater security that went over and they were actually, I think they were doing a catering area and they were just trying to protect it.

PAT: They were feeding the troops, yeah.

GLENN: So they were providing security for this. What happens? Those guys are taken out and dragged out into the street, they are brutally beaten and then they're hung from the bridge. Do you remember this story?

PAT: And burned.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Horribly, just a horrible, horrible story. Well, the guy who is most responsible for this we have been looking for for quite some time. Back in September the press didn't know about it, the press didn't talk about it, including us, because I didn't know about it. They caught that guy. Our Navy SEAL team went in and got him. Now, he has filed a grievance with the United States government. Not that he was abused or tortured but that he was given a bloody lip by one of the SEALs.

The United States government decided to reprimand them and they were going to give them, what is it called, an admiral's something or other? And they were going to get a reprimand. The Navy SEALs stood together and they said, excuse me? For giving him a bloody lip? Do you remember what he did? Do you remember who he is? And so they refused the disciplinary action and they said, you have got court martial us; with an open jury, you go ahead and court martial us. And so they are demanding to be court martialed for giving this dirt bag a bloody lip.

Now, I cannot believe that our government, instead of thanking these guys, is going after these guys. It is an outrage. It is exactly what we have been doing with the CIA. It is exactly what we do with everyone who tries to protect us. It is exactly what this president did with the police officer up in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Go after the guy who is just trying to do his job.

I've had enough, and I have a nephew who has been on the front lines. He has spent the last few years in Iraq. He called me a couple of months ago: Uncle Glenn, it's time for me to reup; what do you think. My advice? Absolutely not. I cannot give you my word as a citizen that this congress will not use you as a pawn. I cannot give you my word as a citizen that this president won't use you for some political device. I cannot give my word that this administration and this congress won't leave you laying out there blowing in the wind with people, with guns and bombs and everything else, coming after you. I can't guarantee that this government won't in the end paint you as a baby killer. Enough. Enough.

George W. Bush made enough mistakes for me. As you know, if you are a long time listener of this program, I was for going into Iraq, but he should have cut Donald Rumsfeld long before he did. There were mistakes with the smaller footprint idea. I'm sorry. Overwhelming force. Shock and awe. The idea of war is you go in with everything you got and you scare the living daylights out of people. And then you leave. We're not nation building. We are you telling me that this, the United States military, couldn't if they would have been unleashed, couldn't go and kill all the bad guys in Afghanistan? We couldn't have gotten Osama Bin Laden? Are you telling me that in one year this government couldn't have gone in and flattened the Taliban, killed? Not taking them and holding them for trial in New York City. Killed the bad guys! You must, if you want to win a war with these people, you go in and you scare the living daylights out of them. And then you leave. And you leave everybody in the region with this idea: You mess with the United States of America and the wrath of God is coming down on you; don't ever mess with us. And by the way, we're not going to rebuild you, either. You mess with us; you're done. And then we go home. But no, no, no. The progressives decided to tie us all together economically so there couldn't be any real war anymore. Well, we're seeing the fruits of that now, aren't we? Long, drawn out wars, exactly what the progressives talked about with Carroll Quigley, exactly what they planned. They announced it in the 1960s and that's the kind of war we have gotten ever since. Where there is no real victor and it just goes on and on and on. And then they tied us together so there couldn't be any real war. If we tie everybody economically together, then there won't be any war. Well, look at the fruits of tying everybody together economically. This progressive nightmare is just that. It is a nightmare that is about to become a nightmare of biblical proportions. It doesn't work.

We have made massive mistakes in this on this planet because we have untethered ourselves from our founding fathers. Our founding fathers saw us more as Switzerland. We are an enemy to none and friend to all... unless you mess with us. Why are the Leathernecks called the Leathernecks? Because Thomas Jefferson created the Marines and he wanted to do the job that nobody else would do. Not because they were affecting the rest of the world but because the pirates, the Muslim pirates were taking over the seas, and no one had the courage to stand. So we sent them over, with leather on their necks so they couldn't be beheaded in battle. That's why they're called Leathernecks. And we went over and we solved the pirate problem, with the Marines. Then we brought them home.

Our problems have been because the Republicans, under the people like George Bush, under the people like Theodore Roosevelt and John McCain, they have thought, we have democracy, we have the greatest system on the planet, we're going to spread this all over the world. It's our duty to do it. It is not. Not the way we've been doing it. And then the progressives on the left have decided, no, no, no, the best way to do it is not through military force. No, not through going out and nation building. What we'll do is we'll do it first through the League of Nations, disaster then we'll do it through the United Nations disaster. Neither of them work. Our founders knew the answer. The best way, the best way to convert people to freedom and liberty and our Constitution, our way of life is to just mind your own business. Do the right thing. Lead by example. If we would just lead by example, people would beat a path to our door. They already did. They wanted to be like us, until we started telling the rest of the world they should be like us.

I have changed a lot in the last ten years. I've changed even more in the last twenty. But I am extraordinarily clear on a couple of things. Our founders had the right ideas. They were perverted around the turn of last century. They were co opted, those ideas, those perverted ideas co opted by both parties. Those perverted ideas are called progressivism. And whether it is spreading power through the United Nations led by the United States, or that's their theory, or spreading our power through our military might and through nation building. Both of them are wrong and they're perverted.

I have also learned that the United States of America is not invincible. It is sinkable. Debt does matter. I have also learned that character does matter. That it does matter what somebody is like in their personal life. If you can't trust them in their own family and in their own business dealings and with the IRS form every year, you can't trust them. I also know it is immoral to ask someone to fight in your name. It is immoral to start a war and not kill as quickly as you possibly can, to end the suffering as quickly as you can. The harder you fight, the more stunning your justice is coming out of the sky. The swifter and the more stunning it is, the faster it is. Anything but a fast victory is immoral. End the suffering. It is immoral to ask someone to fight and die and then not give them everything they're asking for. It is immoral to ask somebody. You go get them. You go do whatever you have to do to stop another 9/11. And then take those CIA agents who did exactly what you asked them to do and then stick them out for political reasons because you're looking for cover. You're a weasel. To ask people to go pick up a gun and fight and then say, "We're not really sure why we're fighting anymore. We're not even really sure if this was worth it." You asked people to kill someone else. That is something that it doesn't go away. That is something that is with you for the rest of your life. And it is only something you can live with if it was worth it! But now we're not really even sure if it was worth it. Then you end the madness. You stop the killing. Today, as every day, I give thanks for the troops. I give thanks to the police officers, the firemen. I give thanks to almighty God that there are people like Marcus Luttrell and his brother that will go into battle in my name and they will do things that I cannot imagine myself doing and they will do it so there is liberty preserved for my children. I get to my knees every day and I thank God for those people. Well, it is time that those of us who are on our knees every day stand up and say enough is enough. You either stand by these people, you either give them what they want, you either stop trying them for things you ask them to do. You either start calling people who shoot our troops by name, "Terrorists, I don't give a flying crap what we did in the past to make them wet themselves since they were 7." They killed our troops. You call them by name. They're terrorists, period. You either start doing that or I just can't support you in any way, shape or form. In any way, shape or form. You have to make your own decision if you were thinking about re enlisting, but I have to tell you we need you so desperately, we are counting on you so desperately. If we lose this in Iraq, if we lose this in Afghanistan, it's all going to start all over again. And it will be left up to our children and our grandchildren if our grandchildren are allowed to have a country anymore. But I cannot ask you to go serve in my name for my country. I promised myself I would not be a part of a generation that created another Vietnam veteran. I will not put my name on that kind of policy, period.


 

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
