Glenn Beck: A bird? A plane? A black hole?

Mystery as spiral blue light display hovers above Norway

GLENN: By the way, Ryan, I know you are a meteorologist, so but you are a thinker here on the whole sky thing. Did you see the video from, where was this? Norway?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Did you see the video of what happened, what they say is a rocket in Norway?

CALLER: I actually did not see that.

GLENN: Stu, do we have it up on the website? Do you know?

STU: I do not know, but I will check.

GLENN: Okay. Does anybody have an answer for me today? Does anybody can anybody do more than nine hours and 45 minutes of work?

STU: My union contract says 8 hours, 15.

GLENN: Really?

STU: So no.

GLENN: Well, all right, good. Yeah, let's see if we can find it on the... (humming). It's a surprised cat at

STU: Ooh, a surprise cat?

GLENN: That looks really good. I tell you what, Ryan, you check back with us at here in about an hour or so. We're going to try to get this, we're going to try to get this video for you of what happened in the skies over Norway. I'm sorry, but I want to know where Jodie Foster was. Did anybody see oh, what's the movie?

PAT: Contact?

GLENN: Contact. I think, I think they have opened a wormhole. It would explain an awful lot, wouldn't it? You would be like, "Oh! Oh, we've just been in a parallel universe. Oh, now it makes sense." Wouldn't you feel better if you found out?

PAT: I would.

GLENN: That we slipped through a wormhole because they started Zurn, you know, they started the supercollider and you'd be like, oh, it's just a wormhole thing; okay. No chance of you getting back to the, you know, original America and the original world you were in. "Oh, that sucks." But at least I understand what's going on now!

I saw this, and they are saying that there was a Russian missile gone awry.

PAT: Get out of here.

GLENN: I've never seen anything like it.

PAT: It's a spiral if you haven't seen it yet, it's a spiraling light and then there's a blue spiral light that comes out of this white light. And then it all seems to like in the center of the white light it looks like, well, it looks like a wormhole opens or a black hole forms.

STU: And?

PAT: Or something.

STU: And?

PAT: And?

STU: I mean, you guys are such you're so paranoid.

GLENN: And then Smurfs pop out. And then Smurfs pop out.

STU: You think it's an avatar promo?

GLENN: It could be. It could be Gargamel. It does have a blue light going up to it. Now, I haven't heard anything that sounds reasonable including the Russian missile thing. Maybe it is.

PAT: I think it's the Tesla weather machine. They're shooting the Tesla weather machine and changing the weather patterns for the world. That's what they're doing.

GLENN: Were you surprised at the guy from SuperFreakonomics? I said, have you heard the theory that they are changing the weather?

PAT: He's like, oh, yeah, of course they are doing that.

STU: I mean, he wouldn't

GLENN: I mean, he is not a

STU: No, no, I would

GLENN: You know what? Can we get him on the phone? He would know about this Russian missile thing. He would at least know where we could start. Let's get the SuperFreakonomics guy on.

STU: Stephen Dubner? Why would he because he wrote a book about economics, I don't

GLENN: No, no, we talked about, we were in the green room, we were talking science. We were talking science, we were talking physics.

STU: What would that I don't understand why he would be the one.

GLENN: Because we were talking about DARPA in the green room and we were talking about scientists, and he hangs with scientists and he was talking to me about, I don't remember, some group of scientists that he's hanging out with. He would at least know who we could call, I bet. Don't you think?

STU: I don't know about we could ask him.

GLENN: Call him.

STU: Well, yeah, let's ask him. I like it. I thought it was

GLENN: He's standing there and he's like, let's do that.

PAT: Yeah, let's

GLENN: That would be your job to do that.

STU: Hold on. Let me I mean, let me just call over and see what's going on.

PAT: Good idea.

STU: I'll do that now.

GLENN: Go ahead and do that now.

STU: Yeah, I'll definitely call. I want to get on that and make sure I take that call.

GLENN: I can't take it anymore. It's the wormhole. They opened up a wormhole.

STU: Do you not want me to call? You were saying something about the wormhole. I want to make sure I hear it if it's important. I'll just wait.

GLENN: Turn your microphone off and call him.

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.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."

On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
