Glenn: I would just like to turn down the lights a little bit and get a little eco Barry White, because I want to help you. If you're like me and you're just a little sick of the eco green madness, like the Poland Springs water that just ‑‑ the Poland Springs water bottles will no longer stand up because they're so damn cheap because they're shipping water from Fijo or some places halfway around the world. They're going to put it in a little cheap little bottle. So, once it gets to Fiji ‑‑ once it's been in Fiji and brought over to the airport and then put on a giant 747 and brought over here to the United States and then put into plastic bottles, oh, yeah, and put in a cheap plastic bottle and then they put those cheap plastic bottles into trucks an then drive it to the store and then you get in your SUV and you go and you drive and pick up that Fiji water and you put it into a big plastic or paper bag, which is bad for the environment, no water which way you look at it, then you bring it into the house that's heated to a comfortable 71 degrees and then you come on in and you open up that Fiji water and then, because it's in a cheap bottle, it spills and all that water is wasted. Yeah. All right. So, here's the thing. Here's the thing. Here's what I'd like to do. And this idea comes from Mr. Walt Disney himself. I don't know if you know, Epcot is experimental prototype city of tomorrow and that's what it was supposed to be. He said it was the greatest work of his life. Unfortunately, they turned it into an amusement park, but what it was supposed to be was an experimental prototype city of tomorrow. So, I think we take all these great progressive ideas and what we do is we put people into the prototype city of tomorrow. We take perfectly healthy people, mentally sound, not green freaks, not anti‑green freaks, just perfectly sound, healthy Americans, and we put them into that experimental prototype city of tomorrow, where they have their water bottles that won't stand up anymore, their electricity in their home, their temperature in their home is controlled by someone else. So, if they're cold, well, it's too bad. If it's a really hot day, it's too bad. You have your kids running around. Of course, you can't have any snacks, can't have any chips, can't have any candy. No soda. No, no, but you'd say, let's have the kids go outside and play, they would say, sure, just as long as it's not tag or kick ball or anything where the kids could get hurt, but let's keep them thin. So, have them go outside and stand. Yeah. And when they get really hot, have them drink some of the water. They'll have to lap it up off the floor because the Fiji bottle is no longer made by real plastic and it spilled all over the floor and you don't want that to go to waste. So, the kids will, after a hard day of standing outside, will come on in and lap that Fiji water off the floor. And, of course, no one will have any snack. It will be great. And when you do have dinner, it will be ‑‑ well, it will be something that didn't have fur or eyes, of course. Meat is, of course, a no‑no. We'll all have salad, low salt, lowfat salad, and then we'll all gather together in our living room and we'll watch politically correct television on a very small, environmentally friendly screen. No one will smoke. Most likely soon no one will drink, either. Remember, it was the progressives that brought us prohibition in the first place. Oh, and let's see how happy the Americans are in their experimental prototype city of tomorrow. I would like to see any of these people actually live in that world.

Pat: The kids will have something to do. They can go outside and main line heroin because Mayor Bloomberg is trying to make that easier.

Glenn: Progressive Mayor Bloomberg.

Pat: No salt, no trans fats, and don't you touch a blueberry muffin. But let me help you ‑‑ if you're going to main line heroin, let me show you how to do it safely and I'm going to put out a pamphlet to show you that you need to jump up and down before you stick the needle in your arm so that your veins stick out.

Stu: Is that what I've been doing wrong?

Pat: Yes.

Glenn: Do you know what the last sign of the Miamar Republic was? What did they do right before the damn thing collapsed economically?

Pat: Shot up heroin?

Glenn: Pretty much.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: They pushed everything that was bad for you. So, alcohol, drugs, prostitution, everything, keep the masses opiated, keep them ‑‑ keep them as drunk and as drugged as we possibly can get them because that way we'll buy more time. When the central bankers all got together with the government and they said, if we stop printing this money, it means massive bad stuff and they said, well, okay. Well, then maybe something will happen, something will come along and change our fate here and so they drugged ‑‑ they dragged that fate out as long as they could and eventually they had to drug people to be able to keep it going for awhile.

Stu: Yeah. But the results of those policies were just an economic collapse in Hitler coming to power.

Glenn: But other than that, nothing bad happened. Nothing at all bad happened. No salt but heroin for everybody.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
