GLENN: There's a Pew study out today, the Pew Commission called Red Ink Rising: A Call to Action to Stem the Mounting Federal Deb. This is, you know, the committee for a responsible federal budget. This is pretty frightening stuff. The looming fiscal crisis and the federal debt and the I mean, it goes on. It's, I don't even know how many pages this thing is. It's 30 pages. And basically what it says is even if we come out of the recession, it may not matter. And it won't matter for very long because you've got total destruction of wealth coming. Our children are going to be enslaved by what we are doing right now. It is the Cloward and Piven strategy. It's the final phase of the Cloward Piven strategy, which is collapse the system. When you collapse the system, what are you going to run to? Well, Cloward and Piven, they figured it out that you have to have the structure in place. You have to have something that the system collapses into and that's what we're building right now.

You know I said this on the air last night on television, I think it was, at least I was thinking it, that, do you remember if you are a radio listener of mine, do you remember when I was saying to you, when I first said they're going to come for a bailout of the banks. I think we were on that before it was announced because of some of my connections. I had a, who I've referred to now for years as deep throat call me and say bailout is coming. He said it's the only way, Glenn. Otherwise this thing flies into the side of a mountain. He had been walking from the Fed building, treasury building in Lower Manhattan the night before he got home and he called me. He had met with everyone from the Fed and the treasury and he said, I walked down the street and he said, I'm just looking at all the faces of the cars that are driving by me. And he said, they had no idea, nobody has any idea what's coming. He said, we need time. We need time so people can wake up and be prepared. I said, I'm trying to wake people up. Well, that's why the TARP idea, before it was named TARP or the bailout, before they put it into politics, before they actually started saying what it was, that's why I was for it. But that's not what it turned into. That's why in three or four days I was against it. Because I realized they are not going to use this. They are going to use this time to say and this money to say, see, we fixed it. And they haven't. They have only bought us time. Now, those who know, what are they doing? They are fundamentally transforming our system. That's what they're doing. They're putting things in place so when it does collapse, they will be there.

Now, have we done that? Have we done that ourselves in our own life, that when things collapse, do we have to run to someone? I told you, was it Monday? Is it Thursday today already? My gosh. Monday I told you on this program that I had heard from an adviser friend of mine, and he is not a guy who has ever said, Glenn, you're on the money, Glenn, you're he's a very measured man. Very well respected. Has advised presidents on both sides of the aisle. He's a he is a very respected, measured individual. He said, Glenn, look at history. There's a window of opportunity. And the very bad guys and the very good guys are going to use this time period right now. I can feel it that it is true and I think you can feel it as well. We are the fringes are going to become more and more important, and the fringes on the left and the right need to be avoided. We need to watch carefully the fringes.

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.
