GLENN: Let me go to the audio of Andy Stern now. Andy Stern is the guy from SEIU. Let me play now the audio of his plan of what America looks like. And I ask every single union member to ask yourself the question. When you're listening to him, is this the America that I understand.

STERN: We created global trade, we created global finance. We created global companies, but we forgot to create a global government.

GLENN: Stop!

PAT: Oh, darn it.

GLENN: Got it? Global government. We've created all this stuff but not global government.

STU: We forgot.

GLENN: Yeah, we forgot that. Are you into global government union members, are you into global government? Because that's what's coming. Because the unions need to have a global government to be able to have global employees.

STERN: or global regulators as (inaudible) is talking about now. I happened to be at Davos and I say they are going to rename this year's Davos as the revenge of the countries over the companies. Because all of a sudden we realized we let Global Capitalism run amok and reap global regulation and today we began the process in London of actually putting in place those regulations. So

GLENN: Stop for a second. Do you believe that companies are evil and bad? I believe that companies can be bad but I don't think Microsoft is bad, I don't think Google has been bad. Gosh, I don't even think that General Motors was bad when it was promoting jobs and building great cars, I don't think that was bad. May have done bad things. I don't think Wal Mart is bad, do you? Companies are bad.

PAT: You know who is? ExxonMobil.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Shell.

GLENN: They have only been powering the world.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's all they have been doing

PAT: Yeah. But with oil.

GLENN: is making sure that we don't live in the stone age.

PAT: With oil, Glenn.

GLENN: I know. It's awful.

STERN: We have a new metric. The president says he wants to judge the new economy, whether it increases the number of people in the middle class, whether we have shared prosperity, not just whether we have growth, which is

GLENN: Stop. Got it? We have a new metric. Do we have shared prosperity? You are right, that is a new metric. We've never had that metric before. Had it in the Soviet Union but not here.

STERN: that we've seen in the country of today.

GLENN: Yes.

STERN: Now, how do we distribute wealth in the country? And this is sort of my last big point. And clearly government has a major opportunity to distribute wealth.

GLENN: Sure, to distribute wealth.

STERN: Through tax policies, through minimum wages, through living wages, the government has a role

GLENN: Hmmm, living wages.

STERN: in distributing wealth or social benefits like Medicare, Medicaid, certain health insurance.

GLENN: There you go. A global government that distributes wealth and a new metric. Who's in the middle class? That's fantastic. I mean, it's awfully darn Lenin of them, maybe Mao, touch of Marx. All coming soon, just a little bit of Stalin. But I don't hear James Madison there. I don't hear comes Jefferson. I don't hear George Washington. I don't hear Ben Franklin? Does anyone? Is this the country we are? Because these are the people that are controlling healthcare. These are the people that have written the healthcare plans. If you think that tomorrow the president is going to come out and say, "Hey, I got something really great, you guys are going to love it, and it's got tort reform," if you don't think it has some of this new metric to it, you are fooling yourself.

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.
