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.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
