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.

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with SaveOurAllies.org to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"
