GLENN: Here it is. This is Chris Matthews.

STU: First time heard in any broadcast format.

GLENN: No, he said it on a broadcast format.

STU: Yeah, first time we've heard on any broadcast format.

GLENN: Even the controls room of the Chris Matthews show is like, I can't do it, I can't do it. Fire me and just put a computer in my place, will you?

MATTHEWS: And I didn't see much excitement but among the older people there, I saw if not resentment, skepticism. I didn't see a lot of warmth in that crowd out there that the president shows to address tonight. And I thought that was interesting. He went to maybe the enemy camp tonight.

STU: Good terminology there.

GLENN: Like he's just figuring this out: I think the military

PAT: I don't think they like him.

GLENN: might have a problem with him and his policies.

STU: But enemy camp? We're talk this is

PAT: He can't say that.

STU: This is the military. This is not an analogy. Not using a military analogy for something else. This is the military.

GLENN: Let me just, let me just explain to Mr. Matthews, who may not understand how this system works. Unlike, you know, your beloved Venezuela, our troops serve the commander in chief and the Constitution of the United States. There have been many presidents that the military hasn't liked, but they follow orders and do what they're told.

STU: Look at the voting. I mean, every time it's, you know, they typically at least most recently vote for the Republican. They voted for John McCain. But that doesn't mean that they don't they are not going to do what Barack Obama tells them to do. It's like we had Marcus on the other day. He's like, just tell me to do my job. Just let me do my job, give me what I need and let me do my job.

GLENN: Even when they don't like them, they will still do the job.

PAT: They are not going to disagree about it.

GLENN: They are not going to be happy with these policies. I mean, hey, wow, that sounds like I could graduate and then go get killed. That sounds like fun. Thank you, Mr.

PAT: For absolutely no reason.

GLENN: Thank you, Mr. President. I'm trying to understand exactly this policy. If I may, if I'm not mistaken, it's the idea of war is the last person standing wins. Right?

PAT: Uh uh.


PAT: No. Not anymore.

GLENN: Okay. Because I'm wondering

PAT: It's a little different now.

STU: Politics of the past.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I'm wondering if we were playing a game and it was the last person standing wins, if you were ahead, but if I ever got serious, I could just knock you out clean but you were, you know, you were like, "I think I might actually win this game because this opponent seems pretty distracted and not real committed." And then if I just said, "By the way, I've got to leave in five minutes, I'm leaving in five minutes, okay, I'm going to put some more players down on the field but then we're leaving. I'm just bringing them down so they can help bring everybody else out and I'm going to train, you know, your team a little bit," why wouldn't you just play out the five minute why wouldn't you just run out the clock?

PAT: You wouldn't be talking about this statement, would you?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: As commander in chief I have determined that it is our vital national interest

GLENN: To get out.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. And then get out.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: After 18 months our troops will begin to come home.

PAT: I mean, the next sentence!

STU: Yeah. Wow.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Hang on just a second. See, I heard this as a writer. I heard this as a writer. Go ahead. Play it again. I'm going to show you one thing that the writer was thinking and I'll bet the TelePrompTer was thinking and I'll bet he was thinking. Here it is.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: As commander in chief, I have determined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan.

GLENN: Wait for applause.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: After 18 months our troops will begin to come home.

GLENN: That's why I mean, he was waiting.

PAT: None.

GLENN: He was waiting and they're like, uh huh, uh huh.

PAT: Yeah, great.

GLENN: You better check yourself before you wreck yourself.

STU: Please don't do that again. Please never do that again.

GLENN: I think it was like Nancy Pelosi. It was like, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself. That thing is on YouTube and it's like, it's everywhere. This is really disturbing footage.

STU: You are just trying to torture your children for some bizarre reason.

GLENN: I am.

STU: It's one of those things, he seems to be acting as if this is some sort of last resort thing: We'll give it a whirl for another 18 months or 13 after the troops are actually there and it's like, are we in that position?

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

STU: Maybe we need to change the strategy, maybe we need to increase pressure but there's no timeline other than a self composed one and there's not like we're in the I understand that it's become more difficult, but it's not at this position where I hate to the only thing I can think of is a sports analogy, so just ignore this, Glenn. If you are down by, you know, 34 in the fourth quarter and you are just throwing it into the end zone in every play. There is no need for that at this point. You need to maybe refine, you need to change strategies, maybe change focus as it has become more violent lately but there's no need for that.

GLENN: May I just say if I'm the coach I'm sorry.

STU: Please don't try the sports.

GLENN: I call a timeout and I get everybody together and I say, kick their ass!

STU: Run it down their throats.

GLENN: And they go.

STU: Yeah, you run it down their throats.

GLENN: I mean, what, where it is in our vital national interest.

STU: For 13 months.

GLENN: Yeah. It's in our vital national interest, I think to send 35,000. 35, okay, they were asking for 60, minimum of 40. I'm going to send

PAT: 30.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Because vital national interest.

STU: Our vital national interest is worth doing something about until next summer and when that happens, it's not so vital. It's no longer interesting to the nation.

GLENN: Here's a vital national interest: To win. That's the vital national interest.

STU: Yes.


STU: If you have an internal timeline. We talked about this when they were doing this debate when Romney and McCain and all these people were talking about all this. It's sensible to sit there internally and have a timeline to say, okay, let's hit this by this and hopefully we can get out by X. But the bottom line is those things change. There's no reason to announce that to us.

PAT: You don't want the enemy to know your timeline. And his excuse is we have to let the Afghans know that this isn't open ended. So tell them privately: This isn't open ended. I'm not telling everybody this but we're coming out in 18 months.

GLENN: Try this for size. Try this for size. We're not doing this, but this doesn't even make sense. Imagine if Eisenhower would have said, wow, you want me to land on the beaches? D day? All right. I'm going to need everything we got. The president comes out and says, it's in our vital national interest that we give it, well, not everything we got. We're going to send a few more people over but then we're coming home. We're coming home. In 18 months we're coming home.

PAT: Or if you take the beach and then you announce that right after you take the beach. We're going to leave.

GLENN: We haven't taken the beach.

PAT: We're committed to taking the beach.

STU: If we take the beach

PAT: We're committed to leave. So the Nazis hold out until you leave the beach.

GLENN: Wait, wait. You are not committed to taking anything if you are saying I'm going to leave in 18 months. Because you can't take anything.

STU: Well, you are going to leave eventually.

GLENN: Well, yes, I understand that. But you can't actually take anything. Do you think the Nazis would have fought so hard on Normandy and Normandy? Do you think they would have said, hold them, hold them, hold them, hold them?

STU: They thought they were losing it forever. That's why they fought so much.

GLENN: If we would have said we're going to go into Normandy and then we're going to train those French, Hitler would have laughed.

STU: He would have entrenched himself three feet behind Normandy.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: And that's what they'll do.

GLENN: Let them do it in France, go ahead, because then they are going to leave. And then the French are going to be alone.

STU: And that's got to be what the Taliban is thinking. If they do have huge battles, they fall back, they regroup in other areas in 18 months.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And then they have got nothing to deal with.

PAT: Wait it out.

STU: Yeah, they don't have the military to deal with because they are leaving.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
