Glenn interviews Palin TONIGHT

Glenn: Stu, you did fun with numbers last night. Give me fun with numbers last night. Will you?

Stu: This is going through some of the ratings that television ‑‑ I think there's some ‑‑

Pat: He sounds like a parrot.

Stu: This is what we discovered. This is Friday's ratings of the Glenn Beck program. Your ratings on Friday equaled the combined audience of MSNBC from Hard Ball, the Ed Show, Hard Ball hour 2, Olbermann and Maddow, plus 14,000 viewers.

Pat: Wow. Wow.

Glenn: I love these people.

Pat: Wow.

Glenn: Bill O'Reilly said last night, I saw Sarah Palin on and they were making fun of Sarah Palin on CNN and Paul Begala was, like, Oh, everybody thinks she's crazy, and Bill O'Reilly said, You watch. The numbers tonight ‑‑ this was on the show last night. You watch the numbers tonight with you on it will be huge, will be huge, and we nightly beat CNN 5 to 1. I think ‑‑ I think we meet them because the competition is less fierce at 5:00. I think we meet CNN and all these people by 6 to 1.

Stu: Yeah. Well, to illustrate another way, your audience on January 11th, which was Monday, Monday's audience, was the equivalent of Chris Matthews' audience for all of 2010 plus 137,000 viewers.

Pat: In the entire year.

Glenn: That's unbelievable.

Stu: Isn't it, like ‑‑ isn't it time to just shut it down?

Pat: Yeah, it is.

Glenn: No, no.

Stu: Play some slap shot commercials?

Glenn: No. It is time to say maybe we are out of step with the American people.

Stu: No. Sarah Palin's dumb and we have four people watching us. That's a business plan. Congratulations, MSNBC.

Pat: He doesn't feel that way about you.

Glenn: He doesn't?

Pat: No.

Matthews: I listen to you all the time. I say you're about 30 years older than you are. You're amazingly smart for such a young guy, anyway. Thank you.

Stu: I remember that.

Glenn: That was, like, one of the first times I was on television.

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: And we were surprised because he said he listened.

Pat: All the time.

Glenn: Yeah.

Stu: You listen to that ‑‑

Glenn: This is before he went to the total dark side.

Stu: You literally listen to that guy in the interview that ‑‑ this is back, I think, 2003. It was when Real America came out. Listen to that guy and listen to the guy on television today

Pat: Totally different guy. I interviewed him about that time. I don't know if ‑‑ it was 2003 or something. He was moderate. You know ‑‑

Glenn: Yeah, he was.

Pat: I mean, he wasn't wildly conservative, but he wasn't this.

Glenn: Do you know what? No, wasn't. No, he wasn't, because if you play ‑‑ do you have the audio of what he said on December 23rd about our good friend Saul Alinsky?

Pat: Oh, yeah, I do.

Glenn: Hang on just a second. How could you be moderate? I mean, this is what people don't understand. When I say that Barack Obama is going to hit a bad, really bad spell and he's going to be pushed up against the wall, which he's never been done, it's never happened to him yet, he's going to be pushed up against the wall and what's going to happen? He's going to ‑‑ he's going to tear off the mask. I contend that all of these people have been wearing a mask. In the moderate day, you don't just change overnight. What happened was he decided, do you know what? I can really be who I am over here.

Stu: Maybe.

Pat: When you hear this ‑‑

Glenn: Is this moderate? Listen to this.

Matthews: To teach back to whatever our heroes from the past, from the Sixties, Saul Alinsky once said that even though both sides have flaws in their arguments and you can always find something nuanced about your own side you don't like, it's never perfect, you have to act in the end like there's simple black and white clarity between your side and the other side or you don't get anything done. I always try to remind myself of Saul Alinsky when I get confused.

Pat: Who doesn't?

Stu: Unbelievable.

Glenn: These people.

Stu: Or Mau, one of the people I go to first.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: These people have been lying to us for a very long time.

Stu: In that interview, though, with you, he praises Rush Limbaugh. I mean, he defends Rush Limbaugh in that interview and he praises you. At the time, you know, you were, much less known and weren't the most evil person in the universe at the time. So, I could understand him being differential to you.

Glenn: No, no. He said he listens to me all the time. Play that clip again because I just love this, because it goes against everything that he said. He listened to me all the time.

Matthews: I listen to you all the time. I think you're about 30 years older than you are. You're amazingly smart for such a young guy, anyway.

Stu: Amazingly to me.

Glenn: What happened to me? Did I get hit about a stupid stick or did I just start to become influential and now they have to destroy me?

Stu: I don't know. It seems like ‑‑

Glenn: Have I been in a car accident and I had a boo‑boo on my head all the sudden?

Stu: I don't think the change is with you. I think you're right, obviously, when you say you're going back to Saul Lynn ski. You know, everyone knows the guy was at least to some degree liberal and Democrat and everything else, but there's a significant personality change in that dude

Pat: There is.

Stu: He is now just literally insane on the air. I mean, he's just screaming about things all the time. He's changed.

Glenn: Have you noticed MSNBC, they have ‑‑ they think ‑‑ they think they know why, for instance, I'm successful. Have you seen this ‑‑ who's this Dillon guy?

Pat: Dillon Radigan.

Glenn: Oh, my God. I've seen him in an Elvis suit. I've seen him in a clown outfit.

Stu: Who is he? He's on what?

Glenn: He's on MSNBC. Nobody watches.

Stu: I know that.

Glenn: I've never seen anything like that and it's ‑‑

Stu: He's wearing clown suits?

Pat: Yeah. They think that the props are what is attracting people to you and so they've got this guy on doing this ‑‑ what they consider to be ‑‑ oh, this is the same kind of thing Beck is doing. This will be huge.

Glenn: They have no idea. It's the message. It's the message. You know, I ‑‑ no, I'm not going to ‑‑ I'll tell you ‑‑ I will tell you when I'm finished with this. Do you know what? I hate this. We used to have a radio show where it was just, like, you know, all of our friends hanging out and it was just people hanging out and, you know, people we could talk to ‑‑ you know, we could share and we were always flying urn the radar, which was always so nice. Now we have people ‑‑ I mean, I just met with some people just last week that ‑‑ what they're ‑‑ their job is, in the media, their job is to watch and listen to the show. That's what they get paid to do. And they do it ‑‑ not necessarily these people, but others do it to destroy and so I can't necessarily share a lot of things that I would like to share with you in the uptake. I have to tell you after it's been done, but I'm working on something now that I think we have a chance of actually doing and breaking a wall down, just breaking a wall down. I really, truly believe the paradigm is about to change and I'm going to ‑‑ I'm trolling right now for people ) people who think differently than I do, politically they understand that the paradigm is about to change. I want to see if ‑‑ I want to see who's out there and what are they willing to explore.

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."
