GLENN: Our theme this year is just that: Remember who we are. Remember what we've accomplished. Remember what we're capable of. Remember what our freedom really means and how we got it and how fragile it is. Remember that if we go away, who's left? If we go away, where do people around the rest of the world go to for freedom and hope? Where is it? China? We were instrumental in the downfall of the wall of the Soviet bloc. Ronald Reagan, the Pope and Margaret Thatcher are responsible for what happened, especially in Poland. The three, the three heads really worked together to help those people be free. On the inside there was a leader, his name was Lech Walesa. If you remember him, you remember him as a very brave freedom fighter. Well, he just sat down for an interview in Illinois of all places. Now, it's been translated, but listen to what Lech Walesa now says about the United States of America.

WALESA: The world has no leadership. The United States was always the last resort and hope for all other nations. There was the hope that whenever something was going wrong one could count on the United States. Today we lost that hope. Today we have hope in (inaudible), his generation which puts one more time in present values.

REPORTER: Addressing an American audience and telling them that their country no longer leads the world politically or morally is some pretty tough love. We asked the president if he thinks America is in even deeper jeopardy.

From an outside perspective, from somebody who has witnessed communism up close, is there a justifiable worry that America is beginning to move towards, more towards socialism?

WALESA: Yeah, it looks a little bit like, that issue with those banks. So this indicates that it's a little bit in this direction. It's not bad. Yeah, there's big challenges, the state of taking care of people. Well, like a subject for discussion, the political campaigns are good. But when the government stopped doing it, it basically puts a lot of money and wasted.

GLENN: We have Greece on the verge of collapse. We have Nancy Pelosi saying that they are going to pole vault, they will do whatever, they are going to get this healthcare thing done, for the American people. The American people don't want it. How many times do we have to say this? We don't want it. You have the president coming out with a new budget that is the biggest deficit that we've ever run. What is it? $3.8 trillion budget. What is the deficit in this one? And it includes, to pay for all of these things, it includes stuff we don't currently have, like cap and trade. He's including in next year's budget, which is released today, phantom money from cap and trade. Excuse me? Where is is there legislation that is being passed now on cap and trade? Excuse me? It is fascinating to me that more Americans don't see it but it is of great hope to me that so many Americans now do. I have to warn you if you are in the these tea parties, warning: The GOP is going to try to do everything they can to coopt you. If you're somebody who believes that the Republicans are the solution, well, God bless you. If you believe that there are good people in the Republican and the Democratic Party, I stand by you. You know, remember Barack Obama's trying to make this look like the Republicans aren't ones that stopped healthcare. They weren't! The Democrats had a 60 seat majority! They couldn't get it done! There was no problem that they had the votes if all of the Democrats wanted it. But the Democrats, some of them did not. The argument is inside the Democratic Party, along with the Republican Party.

You know, I was in Nancy well, might as well be Nancy Pelosi's state. I was in South Carolina, Lindsey Graham's state, I'm going to start calling him Nancy Graham. I mean, why don't you throw a skirt on, man, for the love of Pete. So I'm with, I mean, South Carolina and Nancy Graham is, you know, a progressive and Bill O'Reilly and I are backstage and I said, I hate that guy. And he said, oh, he's a good man. And I said, oh, I don't mean I really hate him. I don't even know him. I hate what he's doing. Was he in a car accident or something? And Bill looked at me and said, what? I said, seriously was he in a car accident? Didn't he have like a massive personality change? Want he a conservative?

Stu, do you remember Lindsey Graham as a conservative before he went all Nancy on us?

STU: Not really.

GLENN: Really?

STU: I would say no, I don't really remember that.

GLENN: Pat, do you remember that?

PAT: I do.

GLENN: I remember thinking that I could be wrong but I remember thinking Nancy Graham being an okay guy that you could like, okay, well, at least Nancy's coming.

PAT: I said that on stage to the people of Charleston. Wasn't he at one time a pretty rock solid conservative. And there seemed to be a lot of...

STU: I also remember him with the gang of X and the gang of Y. And still to this day good on war, though. That might be what you're thinking of.

GLENN: You know what the deal is? Here's the thing. Nancy became good friends with John McCain. And John McCain convinced him, hey, the way to get progress done is to work together. Yeah, you are right, that is the way to get things done. You work together. But not violating your principles and the principles of free market, small government and the Constitution! My guess is that progressives in the Republican Party are going to start moving towards Barack Obama's way on this healthcare, will you know what? We'll introduce remember Barack Obama? You just put it on my desk, I want to see your okay, we'll do it. And it will be from John McCain and the Nancy Grahams of the world and they will it will be progressive city. It will be progressive lite, but it will give them the structure that they need to grow it. Warning: I've had several calls this weekend from people who were involved in tea party meetings and GOP meetings. How do we coopt these people? Be very careful. And my warning to the GOP and the Democrats, because I want to play some audio for you here in a second. Do you remember my prediction, what was it, a month ago? I said, you watch. The progressives are going to start imaging themselves because they are going it is becoming so unpopular so quickly to be a progressive that they are going to start imaging themselves as populists. Wait until I play this audio for you. They are also trying to explain the tea parties in a way that, well, the populists are progressive, progressive and populist were one and the same really. Really? We have a lot in common with the tea partygoers. Because here's what they are really saying. Really? We'll give that to you here in just a second. Be careful who you crawl into bed with. Make sure that you are basing yourself on values and principles. Because right now everybody wants your vote. Make them sweat for it. And make sure that they have values and principles that line up with you.

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
