Glenn Beck: Dopes in Denmark



CBS News: Congress Went to Denmark, You Got the Bill

GLENN: Congress has gone to Denmark, and you got the bill. CBS, there is a, there is a scattered shower of journalism breaking out over at CBS. Have you noticed this? They're taking this on. But I again find myself, even when they're trying to do good, I find myself at odds with CBS.

VOICE: And now, scattered showers of journalism!

GLENN: Here they are at CBS trying to, trying to do the right thing and saying, hey, you know what? You know what we should do is we should point out that this whole, you know, Denmark climate change thing cost an awful lot of money and what did we get out of it. I beg to differ. But first let me give you the facts. Fifteen Democrats, six Republican congressmen, they went food, rooms for two nights. Cost, $4,406 each. That's $2,200 a day just for food and hotel, each. That's more, so you can kind of put this in context, more than what most Americans spend on their monthly mortgage payment. $2,200 a day for room and board. Now Stu, when did this company become responsible and stop putting people ‑‑ we'd have people come in. Now we only do it usually for like if somebody is a big contest winner or something like that, we try to fly, you know, people in occasionally, you know, who are big fans or listeners of the show and they've won some local contest or something and we'll put them up at the Mandarin Hotel. We stopped doing that for anybody when I finally saw a bill from the Mandarin, and I think the rooms there are like $900 or maybe $1100 a night?

STU: Yeah, it's like the nicest hotel ‑‑

GLENN: It is.

STU: ‑‑ in New York City.

GLENN: It is Central Park, the nicest hotel, the big twin towers, it is absolutely fantastic. It's like $900 or $1100 a night for a regular room, ridiculous. What pushed me over the edge was, and I'm not kidding, hot chocolate for two, or is it four? I can't remember. Hot chocolate for two or for four, $80. And I thought to myself ‑‑

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: We're never putting anybody up there ‑‑ $80 for hot chocolate? What, are you insane?

PAT: Yeah, but that's only ‑‑ it was for two. You said it was for two. That's only $40 a cup.

GLENN: That's all it is.

STU: It's probably really good hot chocolate.

GLENN: It might have been for four. So it was only $20 a cup.

STU: Well, now this whole story's going. That's nothing.

GLENN: I know, I know.

PAT: That's almost bargain basement hot chocolate.

GLENN: I'm a pigheaded businessman. I'm not going to ‑‑ yeah.

PAT: Stingy, jeez.

GLENN: So how many cups of hot chocolate could you have if your room is $900 a night ‑‑ that's the nicest one in New York ‑‑ your room is $900 a night and your hot chocolate is $20 a cup, how many cups of hot chocolate can we have now for $1300?

STU: It's a chocolaty evening you'd have there.

GLENN: It is a chocolaty evening.

PAT: Well, I'm pretty sure it wasn't hot chocolate they were indulging in in Copenhagen.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: They were making phone calls to the Red Light District. I don't know what it is with Copenhagen.

GLENN: This is just for hotel and food.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: Sure, right, uh‑huh. Okay, so there you go. You have $4,406 each for the two nights in Copenhagen, you had $1,000 night hospitality suites. It topped, just the hotel meeting rooms were $400,000. The flights for 59 House and Senate staff, they flew commercial, they paid the government rates of $5,000 to $10,000 each. Now, help me out. When you're flying commercial to Copenhagen from Washington, D.C.

STU: Copen‑hoggen.

GLENN: Sorry, Copen‑hoggen. From Washington, D.C. I'm just ‑‑

PAT: You know they went business class at east, had to.

GLENN: They are paying the government rates of $5,000 to $10,000 each. Is Washington to Copen‑hoggen, is it $10,000? I mean, is our ‑‑

PAT: Ya, sure.

GLENN: Are the government rates more than what the average citizen would pay?

STU: Apparently so because I'm looking on, I'm on Travelocity here. I'm booking something. Now, they did know about this in advance, this conference. It wasn't like, hey, next weekend is the conference.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But I just decided anyway to just pick a week or two out here, and I can get from Washington D.C. to Copen‑hoggen for $749.

PAT: Wow. And these were $5,000 to $10,000 each?

GLENN: These were 59 ‑‑

PAT: Check business class.

GLENN: Ready? 59 House and Senate staff flying commercially. $408,064.

STU: I'm still trying to find the highest price available.

GLENN: Look for tickets on Lobster airlines.

STU: Lobster airlines?

PAT: Is there a Lobster airlines?

GLENN: Lobster airlines, yes. It's great. They only serve lobster and it's served by lobsters.

STU: Really?

PAT: I would think to train them, it would be ‑‑ yeah.

GLENN: Cost a fortune, yeah.

PAT: So ‑‑

GLENN: And they come with the little hot towels and it's great and they don't need the tongs because they got claws.

PAT: They got claws.

STU: That's much easier.

GLENN: They have to drug them a little bit because, you know, they're witnessing, they're boiling their own.

PAT: That has to be ‑‑

GLENN: So it's kind of a slave airline.

PAT: ‑‑ a little upsetting to them. Beg it's upsetting to them.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: But what the pilot says before, you don't make this perfect for the passengers, you are in the pot next.

PAT: Well, and they have those teeny brains.

GLENN: Kind of like conservatives.

PAT: Yes. A lot like us, uh‑huh.

GLENN: By the way, speaking of tiny brains and conservatives, this tiny brain decided this morning about an hour and a half ago to take on Joe Klein of Time magazine, and it happens in about eight hours from now.

STU: You are counting, an eight‑hour countdown?

GLENN: We've got the countdown clock here in the studio, yeah. In about eight hours and six minutes, Joe Klein will be finding himself just holding his entrails going... (sobbing) "What happened?" I don't think I've eviscerated someone like this in a long time.

STU: I don't understand. Why the hatred? I don't ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, just because he wrote that, in Time magazine this week that people are too stupid to understand how great the stimulus package is working.

STU: It is working.

PAT: It's working great. I mean ‑‑

GLENN: And he says there's no ‑‑

PAT: No waste.

GLENN: There's no waste in it, but people are too stupid.

PAT: Very few cases of any kind of waste.

STU: Idiots.

PAT: At all.

GLENN: So what was the highest price you found on Lobster airlines.

STU: I don't know if I'm looking, like $1,000 you are talking about.

GLENN: Think like a government employee.

STU: I'm trying to.

GLENN: Try to spend more money.

PAT: What about Beluga Caviar air?

GLENN: Oh, that's the one that's painted like a giant whale.

PAT: Yes. And I think baby whales serve you caviar.

STU: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: No, it is. Baby Belugas.

STU: That sounds tremendous.

GLENN: Yeah, it's great.

PAT: Uh‑huh.

GLENN: Okay, so here's the thing. This isn't counting anybody that went to the ‑‑ you know, from the White House. And the employees, I love this. Here are the attendees. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and husband. Majority leader Steny Hoyer, and wife. George Miller, Henry Waxman, Ed Markey.

PAT: And his nostrils.

GLENN: And his wife. Charlie Rangel, Bart Gordon, James Sensenbrenner, Sensenbrenner's wife, Sander Levin, Joe Barton, Barton's daughter. This is wonderful. Jay Inslee and his wife. Shelley Moore Capito and her husband. I wonder if we paid for the ‑‑ why didn't we bring the kids? Do you know how beautiful Copen‑hoggen is, especially this time of year?

Now, look. We've spent a lot of money on this global warming thing over in Copen‑hoggen, and people, CBS is complaining that, oh, we spent millions of dollars in getting over there; what do we get for our money? Freedom! This is the best government waste I have ever seen. They went over there, they spent all that money. By spending all of this money, by making such a big deal out of it and then not getting anything, this is the year, these were the months that exposed global warming for the hoax that it is. I say it's the best $2 million that this administration has ever spent. It may be the best $2 million that America has ever spent.

STU: You know, that's a great point. And it's on such a, just widely viewed stage. It's like flopping on American Idol during halftime of the Super Bowl. It was so public, such an awful failure.

GLENN: You know what it is?

STU: You're right.

GLENN: These people, for $2 million, you know, when Stu said the word "Flopping," what I thought of, and I think it's much more, much more appropriate because I still kind of have sympathy once in a while for those people that are failing, you know what I mean? And you are like, oh. You know what this is? Because sometimes those guys are entertaining, but you never feel, you never feel good when a fish flops into your boat and you just see the gills, like, "I can't breathe; help me, I can't breathe. I can't breathe." And then hammer comes down on its head. That's pretty much what happened to global warming.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: "I can't breathe. I can't..." for $2 million, that's the best fishing trip we've ever been on.

STU: I agree. And there was probably some tasty dessert, some tasty hot chocolate. Hot chocolate and freedom. How about them apples?

GLENN: And we know that it's at least $20 a cup.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
