Glenn: In completely, completely unrelated news, the house that approved a $290 billion limit in the debt limit. Obama is now signing a $1.1 trillion spending bill. The house has also approved $155 billion for a jobs programs. And, again, in completely unrelated news Americans in the latest NBC poll, again, NBC Wall Street Journal poll, less than a year after inauguration date, support for the Democratic party continues to slump, amid a difficult economy and a wave of public discontent, according to the Wall Street Journal NBC news poll. Findings underscored how dramatically the political landscape has changed during the Obama administration first year. In January, despite the recession and financial crisis, voters expressed optimism about the future, the new President enjoyed soaring approval ratings, and congressional leaders promised to swiftly pass his ambitious agenda. In December survey, for the first time less than half of Americans approved of the job President Obama was doing, marking a steeper first year fall for a President ‑‑ fall for this President than his recent predecessors. Also for the first time this year, the electorate was split on which party it wanted to see in charge after the 2010 elections. Excuse me? Now, you know what this is. This is, again, a story written poorly. They don't know which party to vote for. We're split as a nation. Yes, yes, we are. But to be split with the Republicans, you've got to be in dire, dire shape because it's no like everybody's, like, you know what? I want to run out and be a Republican.

Stu: That's why the tea party had higher ratings than either party. I mean, that's just significant.

Glenn: It wasn't either party. It was just the Republicans.

Stu: Oh. There's a new one out. If you give me one second, I will find it for you. Here we go. This is a Wall Street Journal NBC news poll.

Glenn: May I ‑‑ may I please, please warn you on something, please.

Stu: Sure.

Glenn: These parties are going to become chameleon‑like and they are going to try to hijack the tea parties and the 9‑12 movement and they are going to try to say, we're just like you. Please be careful next year.

Pat: That's why I only belong to the Christmas party. That's all ‑‑ that's the only way I'll join this year.

Glenn: Really? When do you have meetings?

Pat: Tonight.

Glenn: You have a meeting tonight?

Pat: I have a meeting tonight. (

Glenn: I know.

Stu: Is it an annual?

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: What happens (at this meeting of the Christmas party? What happens?

Pat: We sit around an eat and stuff and ‑‑

Glenn: Wait, wait, wait. Okay. Hang on. (.

Glenn: It's a Christmas party

Pat: Now that you know about the Christmas party, I knew ‑‑

Glenn: Okay. So, you sit around an eat

Pat: Eat.

Glenn: I'm in. Okay. But what else?

Pat: Well, stupid games.

Glenn: Stupid games.

Stu: I'm a little iffy on that.

Glenn: Okay. All right.

Pat: But the stupid game didn't look to stupid that you might not want to attend the, you know, Christmas party.

Glenn: Right, right.

Pat: So, I think the food might ‑‑

Glenn: And then you have to listen to speeches and then they go on and on and on.

Pat: Oh, geez, I hope not.

Stu: You haven't been to one of these Christmas parties, have you?

Pat: I haven't been.

Stu: This is your first one.

Glenn: Oh, yeah? You just doubled the size of my speech. It's just become 45 minutes.

Pat: I don't think you could speak any less than that.

Stu: Are you capable of standing up for less than 45 minutes? I don't think so.

Glenn: That's what we do at this so‑called Christmas party, as you call it to fondly.

Stu: Yeah. Typically 42, 43. But, you know, this is actually real. More than 4 in 10, 41 percent of respondents said they had a very or somewhat favorable view of the tea party movement.

Glenn: How many?

Stu: 41 percent. While 24 percent said they had a somewhat view. So, 41‑24, plus 17 for the tea parties. The Democratic party, 35 positive, 45 negative, minus 10.

Pat: 35, 45.

Stu: So, plus 17 for tea party, minus 10 for Democratic party.

Glenn: Wow.

Stu: And then Republican party is a 28 percent favorability, a 43 percent negative. So, they're minus 15. (So, tea party plus 17, Democrats minus 10, Republicans minus 15

Pat: The Christmas party? What was the ‑‑ was it in there?

Stu: Christmas party ‑‑

Glenn: Is it in there?

Stu: Plus 47, if Glenn is sick and not making his speech, plus 60. Otherwise ‑‑ there's actually ‑‑

Pat: Is there still at Republican party?

Stu: The world workers party retired.

Glenn: Isn't that amazing?

Pat: It's incredible.

Glenn: It's amazing.

Pat: Especially with all the media backlash against the tea party.

Glenn: And everybody gets them except, you know, talk radio.

Stu: And not only ‑‑ not only ‑‑

Glenn: Look at this. Look at this. The man of the year is Ben Bernanke and no one in Time magazine, they don't even show the pictures of the tea party movement and the tea party movement is more popular than the Republican and the Democratic party.

Stu: By a significant margin. The closest of which 27 points ‑‑ there's a 27‑point swing, the closest. 32 points with the Republicans.

Glenn: That's incredible.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:


Glenn and Justin’s new book, ‘The Great Reset: Joe Biden And The Rise Of 21st Century Fascism’ is available to order now.
