GLENN: Last night we were out at a theater, Skirballs is the name of it, and we were at this theater at NYU last night. I said over a year ago, why would we book a theater at NYU. They said, oh, it's a good theater, blah, blah‑blah. And I said, it's at NYU. And they said, no, but it will be great. And I said, it's at NYU! And this is before Van Jones and his henchmen were all set to do everything in their power to destroy me. I just report the facts. They're in the politics of destruction. And so we thought, you know, this is going to be a nightmare. And as it turns out, it wasn't. Well, it was a nightmare because it's at NYU.

PAT: It was a nice theater, though.

GLENN: It was a great theater.

PAT: They were right about that. It was a great theater, very nice, very nice.

GLENN: I thought it was a great theater. I thought, you know, the NYU security was great.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: They had a big meeting, what was it, the day before yesterday. Didn't even invite the guy who signed the contract for me. We rented this theater. It was a private party. We didn't invite anybody because we knew it was at NYU. So we didn't sell tickets or make it open to the public. We just invited a bunch of people because I didn't want a bunch of protestors there for, you know ‑‑

PAT: Wrecking a national broadcast.

GLENN: Yeah, wrecking a national broadcast.

PAT: Be great.

GLENN: And Christmas, not a single word of politics in it.

STU: And you should seek redemption. That's ridiculous.

GLENN: Well, it's at NYU. There was that controversial, you know, philosophy of, there is a god.

PAT: Well, there was that.

GLENN: Yeah. So there was ‑‑

PAT: A lot of that.

GLENN: So there was ‑‑ they had this meeting. They had all these people come and they didn't even invite ‑‑ they invited my security chief and that's it but there were like a whole roomful of people and they were talking about the First Amendment rights. This is the day before the broadcast. And luckily one of my guys found out about it and he showed up and he said what the hell are you even talking about, First Amendment rights? Did we not rent this private hall? Did we not ‑‑ isn't this by invitation only? What do you mean First Amendment rights? Well, if somebody happens to get into the building and they want to be heard, then we're not going to ‑‑

PAT: You mean like they do for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and everybody else?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Who has a little problem? They are not ushered out immediately?

GLENN: Yeah. So the protestors gathered last night, all of them had been, I can't say hired because I don't think money was exchanged but they were all brought on board by, you know, e‑mails from Van Jones' folks which, you know, was great.

You know it's amazing because there wasn't any problem until Van Jones got involved, or his people got involved. He's not involved at all. Not at all.

STU: Nothing to do with anything.

GLENN: Nope.

STU: He's never heard of any organization.

GLENN: No organization whatsoever.

STU: And he happened to find the organization, it was blind. Didn't know it existed when he created it.

GLENN: There was no pressure put on them or union pressure put on others, none.

STU: No way.

GLENN: These protests are completely organic.

STU: I normally wouldn't support ridiculous idiots that have nothing to do protesting a Christmas story.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But when it's so hateful the topic when you're talking about whether God can give you redemption through the holidays, when you get to that sort of hatred ‑‑

GLENN: I know. Disgust.

PAT: You have to do everything you can to stop it.

STU: You have to stop it. You have to stop it.

GLENN: It is amazing because I talked to some people who are extraordinarily liberal because I have really good, I have really good liberal friends. Very, very, very, very liberal friends, wouldn't you say, Pat, some of my friends are ‑‑

PAT: Uh‑huh.

GLENN: Very liberal. And even they were saying, this is ridiculous. I mean, when ‑‑ and I can't share it with you now, but when you hear the whole story on everything that has happened just to bring you a story of redemption, when you hear ‑‑ and, oh, you will one day. You will. Say it like Yoda. Yes? Yes?

GLENN: When, when I write that story, and I'm going to make that one free, it's mind‑boggling, mind‑boggling.

STU: Look, you know, if it was just, you know, the whole god redemption thing, sure, it would be horrible for our country. But maybe we wouldn't go protest it. But when you get to the point of trying to encourage people on heroin to get off of it, when you get to the point where you are trying to change people's lives to try to stop them from killing themselves, that's over the line. I am going to walk in the streets until everyone commits suicide! I want everyone dead! I am protesting any sort of ceasing of a person putting some terrible thing in their body to kill themselves because, why in a free country would encourage such a thing?

GLENN: It's amazing, just amazing. And the Van Jones people and how they specifically targeted a charity, a charity that was involved in this broadcast, that story will also be told. But not today because it's Friday and we're going to have fun. So I just want to thank NYU for understanding the First Amendment and contracts. It was very nice. Very nice. I hate this city. Do they ‑‑ whoops, did I say that out loud?

STU: Things went well, though, right? Things didn't go very negative.

GLENN: You know what it is? You know what it is? These people are out protesting that I should move. These are college students. I'm so sick and tired of people who are trying to tell me about diversity and their First Amendment right to free speech. They tell me all the time, "This guy..." first of all, I'm a Holocaust denier. I'm a Holocaust denier.

STU: Are you really? I didn't know that.

GLENN: Don't you think that the ADL might be a little upset with people who say you are a Holocaust denier when you are talking about global warming? Isn't that a little upsetting to maybe the ADL?

STU: I'm going to go with no on that.

GLENN: I'm going to go with no on that. Except I'm somehow or another tied in by calling Barack Obama Hitler, which I don't believe I ever have.

STU: No, I'm pretty sure.

GLENN: I think I would remember that one. Don't think I've ever called him Hitler, and I'm called by these people Hitler all the time and yet nobody seems to have a problem with that. And I'm not stopping them on their free speech. You want to call me Hitler? Fine. You make yourself out to be absolutely ridiculous, but fine. Why would I stop you from doing that? You'll be exposed as an idiot.

STU: You are German.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, I forgot all about that. Oh, my ‑‑ forget I said that. We've got to shut them down! I didn't, I didn't remember I was German!

PAT: At one time your hair was blonde.

GLENN: Blue eyes?

PAT: Blue eyes.

GLENN: See what's happening here? My gosh, I am the most dangerous man in America! They're right.

STU: I just ‑‑

GLENN: And what do you do with the most dangerous man in America? You silence them. You silence them! Do whatever you have to do to silence them! Get them to shut up! You have to get them to shut up! Oh, boy, that sounds strangely like Hitler, doesn't it?

STU: You just compared somebody to Hitler! See? You do it, too! So ridiculous. It's like, I just don't understand the mentality of going out in the middle of a Christmas show to try to protest someone who's got a bunch of people who have turned their lives around because of redemption.

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."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
