Glenn meets 'fan' in elevator

Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

by Glenn Beck

Glenn: Let's keep things in perspective. A little diddy from us.

Voice: Oh, some important night, the stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear person's birth. Long lay the world in goodness, challenged activity pining, until he appeared and the internal wellness unit felt its worth. A thrill of hope, the weary world is partying, for yonder breaks a new and happy morn. Fall is a great time of year. Oh, hear the non‑supernatural voices. Oh, night that was dark. Oh, night when a nondescript infant was born. Oh, night that was dark. Oh, oh, oh, night when a nondescript infant was born.

Glenn: Oh, I think we can all, we can all get around that song, can't we, really? I walked in an elevator last night. It was about 9:00. I was real tired, had just finished the Christmas special which you don't want to miss. I mean, we had, we had a gospel choir from Brooklyn that was on fire! Andy Williams was there. John Rich was there. It's going to air on this coming Saturday and then it will air again on Christmas and it is a great, great special. But I was ‑‑ so, I'm in the Christmas mood and we had the set decorated like you wouldn't believe. I mean, it was really great. I get into, I get into the elevator to go upstairs and go to bed. I get into the elevator, and here's this guy. I think it's Ozzy Osbourne. He looks just like Ozzy Osbourne, but then he speaks clearly. And he says, "Hum." And I'm like, Oh, geez.

Pat: When it starts with "hum," it's probably not good.

Stu: I like to start conversations with words and not ‑‑

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: "Hum."

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And I just got in. Now, I'm with my daughters. I'm with my family and he says, "I'm a very liberal New Yorker." And I said, "That's so nice. Nice to meet you. I'm a very conservative New Yorker." And he says, "Wouldn't you say ‑‑" and his wife says, "Please, honey, don't." "No, no. Wouldn't you say the problem with this country is too many ‑‑ too many ideas like yours?"

Stu: Yes! Who wouldn't answer "yes" to that?

Pat: Somebody finally gets it.

Stu: That's what we've been saying every day!

Pat: Right. I love being wrong.

Stu: And I haven't changed because I want to be wrong and I want to ruin the country.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And I said, "Do you know what I think the problem is, is there is a lack of distrust of people being decent to one another and there is a lack of honor in Washington on all sides and when honest people, not just trying to make their point, have honest conversations, not just trying to make their point or be right, when those people sit down to the table, this country can accomplish anything."

Stu: Wow. You were gripped by the season.

Glenn: Yes, I was.

Stu: That was a very nice response.

Glenn: Do you know what he said? "Hum." That was the first part. "Hum. You better watch yourself."

Pat: Elevator doors open. He got off.

Glenn: And to the millions of other people around the country, thank you. Merry Christmas.

Stu: That's a happy ending.

Glenn: Yeah, it was. It was. And I thought, if we could just have some holiday, not Christmas, holiday music, to where that guy and I, we can all celebrate the 25th of December. You know what I mean? Where we could all together go, Hum. Hum. Music, good. Hum.

Voice: Oh, come all you people, joyful and triumphant. Oh, come you, oh, come you to Los Angeles. Come and behold this young person, born the kid of parents. Oh, come let us look at him or her. Oh, come let us look at him or her. Oh, come let us look at him or her, Christ, the average kid of earthly parents.

Glenn: Hum, hum, hum.

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:

On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.
