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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
