GLENN: I'm just seeing that CPAC, the conference is just getting underway now in Washington, D.C. I'm going to be speaking there. I'm giving the key note address on Saturday. Fox News has decided to carry the entire speech. So they will be carrying it Saturday afternoon. Do you even know what time that speech starts?

STU: I heard both 5:30 and 6:00 Eastern but I'm not 100% sure which one is right.

GLENN: Okay. So

PAT: A speech so big, they have to cover it at 5:30 and 6:00. In its entirety.

GLENN: No, I think they are only going to cover

PAT: Two fabulous show times on Fox News.

GLENN: I'm wondering if because I know last year CNN and MSNBC covered Rush Limbaugh and they made fun of the way he dressed, they made fun of, you know, how fat he was and everything else. I mean, there's plenty of opportunity to make fun of, you know, how fat I am and et cetera, et cetera.

STU: Yes, there is. We're going to be taking a lot of those opportunities on Monday's radio program.

GLENN: Wait a minute. I don't think that's

STU: No, tune in for that. In Hours 1, 2 and 3 and, of course, 4.

GLENN: (Laughing). I started my diet on Monday. I was

PAT: Are you keeping to it?

GLENN: What?

PAT: Are you keeping to it?

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah, I am. I started my diet on Monday. I have just been so just let me eat myself into a coma that, you know, when I first got on TV, I was scared skinny. There's nothing like going on national TV and knowing that the camera ads in my case 50 pounds, but there's nothing like going on television and being fat. You're scared skinny. So I got down to 205, 208 and about a year ago that started going awry and now I was at... okay, I was at 232 and, wow. Wow. Can I tell you something? When you get up and you are winded from brushing your teeth, you are a little out of shape. You are a little out of shape.

STU: When you have trouble lifting your leg up to get on top of the scale to weigh yourself?

PAT: I find for me I'm deceptively sexy at about 495.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Are you really?

PAT: Yeah. I carry it well, you know?

STU: How much do you have to lose to get down to 495?

PAT: To get down to 495? About 312 pounds.

STU: I need to lose about 250.

PAT: Really?

STU: To get down to 495 right now.

GLENN: So I started exercising and, you know, I just hate it so much.

PAT: What exercise did you do?

STU: Yeah, you didn't

PAT: Come on, you did not exercise.

GLENN: Yeah, I did. I used the Stairmaster.

STU: You went in that room?

GLENN: I went in that room.

PAT: Really?


PAT: What time day was it? I'm in there all the time.

GLENN: Mercury built we built here in New York City at great union expense, we built a gym in here for everybody to use a gym. It's the most underused room.

PAT: By everybody you mean no one. Nobody uses that room.

GLENN: No, no. Kevin, Kevin does.

PAT: Oh, two people use the room.

STU: Liz does, right?

GLENN: Yeah. We have 30 employees now and two people use it. Count them, three. I've used

STU: This is like a government program.


STU: It's like we spent a ton of money for something almost no one uses.

GLENN: But we should because it would drive down our healthcare expenses.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). I'm going to start penalizing people in their paychecks. How many Twinkies did you have?

STU: I like this.

GLENN: But so I started, you know, using the Stairmaster and

STU: How did that go for you?

GLENN: That was good.

STU: Was it like walking up stairs because that sucks. I don't know if anyone else has noticed that. Great

PAT: That's why there's elevators.

GLENN: Somebody on the staff said, I just want to get this clear, Glenn. Because they asked me, what piece of equipment did you use? They were quizzing me, what piece of equipment did you use? Which one is that? What does it look like? Where's that room? Where is the gym in this building? I had all kinds of and I said, I used the, used the Stairmaster and they said, so let me ask you a question. You spent 20 minutes walking on a device that similarities walking upstairs when you could do that for free because you work and you are on the 40th floor of a building. And I said, you know what? If you want to strap a television to your back and walk in front of me, then maybe I'll consider it.

STU: Pat, there's actually one little piece of breaking news here and I could be wrong. I don't have 100% of the knowledge. This is what you were talking about last week. The case isn't 100% ready to be made, but I don't believe there is a Stairmaster in that room. Can anyone back me up on that? We're getting nos here from the whole crew. There is no Stairmaster in that room! I will go in there. I'm going in there right now.

GLENN: Go in there right now.

STU: I'm going in there right now.

PAT: There really is.

GLENN: Oh, it's an elliptical. Oh, yeah, Stu, it's an elliptical. Do you expect me to know the difference between a Stairmaster and an elliptical? Please. We're waiting, we're waiting.

PAT: If you used it, we expect you to know the difference.

GLENN: I didn't know the difference between it.

PAT: If you used it, you'd know the difference.

GLENN: Here he comes.

STU: There is no Stairmaster in that room!

GLENN: It's an elliptical. I used the brown thing, you know, the brown machine in there.

STU: You are so you know so little about exercise, you can't even name the equipment properly.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, yes.

PAT: Glenn Beck lies so much, darling. He doesn't even know when he's lying anymore.

GLENN: (Laughing). It was the one that I said, my wife, I said honey, I can't exercise. It hurts my knees. And she said, then get this machine. It looks complex. I actually stood on that damn thing. It's so complex

STU: The elliptical?

GLENN: Yeah. It's got so many buttons on it, I'm just like, I just want to walk, just want to walk and that's when the worm over in the corner said why don't you just use the stairs. Shut up! Exercise does not put me in a good mood. Just doesn't

STU: It's a terrible process, I think we can all agree on that, even when you don't have a Stairmaster to do it.


How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
