Glenn Beck: Tiger finally speaks

GLENN: There is the, probably the best mea culpa I have ever heard. Everything sounded real to me except for the last line. And, you know, maybe the last line was, but everything sounded he believed it. It was I mean, Tiger, you know, I know you don't need it from me or anybody else, but good job. Good job. Fresh start. I mean, I just, I think that's amazing, just amazing. I mean, I just wrote a couple of things, notes down as we went into it, and he walked out and he had tears in his eyes, or it looked like he had tears in his eyes. He looked afraid, and he seemed sincere.

PAT: Seemed ashamed, which is great.

GLENN: He seemed ashamed.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: His mother couldn't even look at him.

PAT: Uh uh.

GLENN: And, you know, she's Asian, and the you don't you know, Asians generally don't air dirty laundry in front of everyone, and this is shameful. But she hugged him at the end, and I just thought she was I thought it was very dignified. He then talked about how Elin had not hit him. I don't know if that's true or not. I mean, I know my wife would have hit me with a golf club. But, you know, if she didn't, that's fine. If she did, I understand. He may be just doing the valiant thing and covering for her. But it doesn't matter. He's right. It is between the two of them. I thought when he spoke about feeling entitled, I'm going to share some of this on the TV show tonight and something else that we're talking about. I mean, that is the problem with America. This is the mea culpa America needs to make: I'm ashamed of our actions and we've done things and we've lived beyond our means and we thought we were entitled to it. He's right. He said he wants to start a life of integrity now, and the only way he can get people to trust him is if he never does it again. He's right. People look, people want people to be happy. No matter what anybody says: Oh, the press, they build you up and they tear you down. No, they don't. People don't. They don't want to tear Tiger Woods down. They want to like him. We want to like people. We just, you know, if they screw up, we just want them to say that. And quite honestly if anybody is going after his children or his family or really asking him any more questions, we've heard enough. What else do you need to know? What else do you need to know? I don't need any more details, I don't need anything. Let it be. If he screws up again, well, it will be a different story. But God bless you. Tiger, get well. Best of luck.

(OUT 11:20)

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. So what did you think of the Tiger Woods, Pat?

PAT: Thought it was great. I thought like you, I thought it was the best mea culpa I've ever seen. I thought he was sincere, sure seemed it. If he didn't write that speech

GLENN: Let's go through the mea culpas that we can think of. Bill Clinton. I was willing to accept the first one on 60 Minutes. Do you remember that?

PAT: I did not sleep with that woman.

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: Ms. Lewinsky? Not that one?

GLENN: No, the first one where they were on 60 Minutes.

PAT: I like fat chicks, I can't help it.

GLENN: Stop it. The first one where they were on 60 Minutes and she said, you know, we've all he said we've all made mistakes and I think we know what we're talking about here and it's between us. I thought that was, I thought that was a good, gracious way of handling their past when he first ran back in, you know, '91, '92. And I

PAT: Yeah, that was the Gennifer Flowers stuff.

GLENN: Yeah, and I thought it was really well handled and I was willing to accept it... until he was doing it again.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Let's see. Who else has apologized for something?

STU: I remember the one

PAT: Everybody. How about Republican what's his face, Craig from Idaho? I mean, please.

GLENN: I mean, you know, I don't care about apologies for

PAT: My wide stance... okay.

GLENN: Felt totally false to me.

PAT: It did. And maybe it wasn't but it felt it.

GLENN: Felt it.

PAT: Felt it.

GLENN: How about... oh, I can't remember his name. There's been so many of them.

PAT: I know.

STU: Yeah, the big interview like this I remember, and maybe not an interview maybe was the Gary Conditt one. Remember how bad that was? Remember it was really awkward? I think it was right before September 11th and

GLENN: Yeah, that's who I was thinking about. The Gary Conditt one no, wait, was it Gary Conditt?

STU: Chandra Leavy?

GLENN: Yeah, that's who I was thinking of. That one was really awkward and really bad.

PAT: Well, then there was David Vitter's, there's Eliot Spitzer, I mean, there's so many of them. McGreevey. And they have all got their wives there, their suffering wives.

GLENN: Sanford.

PAT: Sanford, same deal.

GLENN: This, I haven't accepted any of those not that I haven't accepted. Fine, no skin off my back. So, you know, whatever.

STU: About believability.

GLENN: I never believed any of them, until this one.

PAT: And it was, it was refreshing that Elin wasn't standing there by his side. Good for her. Good for her. It's your deal. You go deal with it.

GLENN: Would you stand by his side?

STU: No.

PAT: As a friend or are you talking about like my wife certainly wouldn't be by my side. No way. There's no way.

STU: I might be maybe I'm weak here but this, I don't even get to this point. I mean, the second I find out these stories are true, buh bye. Like we're already done with the proceedings at this point by the time he's making this speech.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: There's no, I would not that might be wrong in some way, but I'm gone if something like somebody does something like that to me, buh bye.

GLENN: Well, something like that, I mean, that was, what, 22 times, 22 women?

STU: Well, we don't some may have been telling lies.

PAT: Only 15 that I know of.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: As you pointed out, some have told some stories that were untrue. It could have been he only hooked up with one girl once, a kiss at a wedding, it could have just been that.

GLENN: I don't really care. I don't want to hear the details. I've been so uninterested in the details of his sex life. Have you, have you guys?

STU: No.

PAT: No.

STU: The overwhelming nature of it is I think the only thing that's

PAT: The most compelling thing to do about what he did there was he accepted full responsibility. He didn't deflect it to anybody else and wouldn't even accept his wife, accepting responsibility for hitting him with a golf club or bashing in the window or any of that stuff. Good for him. He took full responsibility for his actions.

GLENN: Didn't say didn't even say

PAT: I've never seen that before, I don't think.

GLENN: You know, he said what I thought was interesting, because he started going down a road and I'm like, oh, boy. When he said, you know, I was young and I got into... blah, blah blah. And I thought, oh, boy, here he goes. And then he says, and I felt entitled to have fun and to explore all of my temptations.

PAT: That's therapy speaking right there. That's therapy. I bet you he just learned that.

GLENN: I don't know if this was written by Madison Avenue, and I hope it wasn't. It sounded like it had been written by him. At least it was read as if he understood it. I mean, he just

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I felt like this was real for him.

PAT: If it wasn't real, if somebody wrote that for him, they're brilliant, genius.

GLENN: If it's not real no, no.

PAT: Seriously.

GLENN: But the way he connected with it. He should get an Emmy.

PAT: It was good, yeah.

GLENN: You know, I and only time will tell. And, you know, we don't want to lay in wait for him and go, there he is again. Only time will tell, but hopefully, hopefully he's, you know, he understands it and he's past it, working on moving past it and finding all of the things that, you know, are holes in his soul, if you will.

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.
