GLENN: Now, Nancy Graham, the hybrid of Nancy Pelosi and a senator that I used to respect, Nancy Graham from South Carolina has decided that he is on the cap and trade bandwagon. He's been there for a while and he says cap and trade is over as we know it, but we still have to regulate carbon. Now, I'll give you the source here in a second so you can dismiss it. But a source has released today that if Obama's carbon tax passes, gas you ready for this? gas will be $7 a gallon.

PAT: Oh, thank you, ExxonMobil. Please.

GLENN: No, it wasn't

STU: No, I think it was Sunoco actually who did that.

PAT: Sunoco? Was it?

STU: No, no. Hess, it was probably Hess.

GLENN: Guys, guys.

STU: BP?

PAT: Could have been Shell.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I suppose.

GLENN: It was Harvard.

PAT: Harvard Gas and Oil?

STU: Company? I've never even heard of that.

PAT: I haven't, either.

GLENN: Harvard University. You know the president went there? Harvard just did a study and said America, prepare for $7 a gallon gasoline.

STU: Wasn't one of the wasn't Larry Summers, the chief economic advisor, president of that university at one point? Wasn't he?

GLENN: I don't know. I just know that they had somebody there recently that hated women or something. I just remember that story.

STU: That's I remember that, yeah.


The Nancy Graham hybrid...

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So we can discredit them. So we have that going for us. $7 a gallon gasoline. And today the president is coming out with his latest healthcare plan. Can I ask a question? Does anybody else sense fatigue in the American people? On this particular issue? Do you think that they're just wearing us out on this?

PAT: I think they're trying to.

GLENN: I do, too.

PAT: This has gone on for almost, almost a year now. I know I'm tired of hearing about it.

GLENN: So do you think that works to their favor?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I do, too.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I think I just, my gut tells me that the American people are like, okay, that's fine. Whatever. My gut tells me, not the real, not the people who are listening to talk radio but the average person who's like, okay, enough, whatever, okay, good, yeah, you got a Republican idea in there. We'll just save all the money by letting the Republicans die; I'm good with that; let's go.

PAT: It's like when your kids keep hounding you for something they want. "Please, can I please have it?" "No." "Please, please could I have it?" "No, you can't no, not until after dinner." "Please, just let me have it? Please, can I? Why can't I have it?" "Because it's not good for you and you haven't eaten dinner yet." "Please, but please can I just have it?" "No." "Can I just have it, please? Can I have one bite?" "No!" "Please? I just want this one little thing, just one..." "Okay! Here, you little brat!"

GLENN: Then your wife says, "Why would you give that to them? Why would you do that?"

PAT: To shut him up!

GLENN: I couldn't take it anymore! It's been going on for an hour. I couldn't I gave in. I just couldn't take it anymore. I think that is what's going on.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Stu, does your gut say this? Do you think people are, "Okay, all right! I just..."

STU: I don't think so. I mean, you know

GLENN: I hope not. I hope not.

STU: Just giving in after all I mean after all

GLENN: No, no, I'm not talking about us. I'm talking about you are going to see the because what is it? 56% are against it?

STU: Something like that, yeah, 56% seems like a general theme that's been going through the polls forever.

GLENN: So 56%. (Laughing). I'm sorry. We have to just because now we have the Insider Extreme and so people are seeing everything that's going on. I have to explain this. About this time every day, I just get a case of the yawns. I just, I get sleepy right when we go on the air. And I'm just

PAT: I have never seen anything like it quite honestly.

STU: It's only started the last couple of weeks.

PAT: I know, I know.

GLENN: And I'm just so sleepy. And I start and I'm just like... "I'm so tired," and I don't know. The big long pauses that you've been hearing in the last two weeks are me yawning. I've tried to work through it, I've tried you know, I'm yawning and I'll be like, "And so anyway, what our president has said," hoping that you don't notice. You notice. I'm sorry.

STU: If you go back and deconstruct the last sentence I had, it was like four times the length that it needed to be?

GLENN: Because I was yawning.

STU: Because he was yawning and I just realized, I've got to cover. 56% is about the average polls that needed to be calculated in the past three to five weeks. Like, why was I talking that much?

PAT: "Yes" would have sufficed. Yeah, it's about 56.

GLENN: If I had universal healthcare, I could have this looked into.

All right. So we have universal healthcare that they're going to jam through, we have cap and trade now that Nancy Graham is working on, Lindsey Graham's well, I had's Lindsey Graham in a dress. We have cap and trade coming. $7 an hour $7 a gallon gasoline according to Harvard. And now we have the FCC coming out yesterday and saying we need how much? $15 billion?

PAT: 25, $25 billion.

GLENN: We need $25 billion. Why? Because the poor need broadband.

PAT: Do you know that 4% of our country doesn't have access? To broadband Internet?

GLENN: Broadband?

PAT: 4%. How can the greatest nation on Earth not give access to all Americans?

STU: Is that true, 4%, or are you just making that up?

PAT: 4%, no, that's what it says.

GLENN: Not just Internet. High speed Internet.

STU: You are saying access. Do you mean paid access?

PAT: Well

STU: You are saying that people need to pay for that access?

PAT: Yes.

STU: Wow.

PAT: Because even in the hills of Tennessee or the Appalachian mountains or whatever, you can still get that satellite broadband thing they have.

STU: Right. So what's the 4%?

PAT: I guess it's people who can't afford it.

GLENN: People who live with desert owls in cacti. They could get access if they paid for it.

STU: I'm sorry because also you have the cellphone broadband networks now. Which I mean, you're in a like you have to be in a place that has, in the middle of nowhere and also has too much tree cover for satellite, right?

PAT: Right.

STU: Of course you could cut the trees down.

PAT: No, you can't cut the trees down.

STU: That would be crazy.

GLENN: Okay, look, here's the thing. You've got to be kidding me. $25 billion for broadband access for the poor? It's called a library. It's called a bookstore. "I can't go to book..." go to the library!

PAT: There are some library bookstore deserts in this country just as there are some food deserts.

GLENN: Wholesome food deserts.

PAT: Not food but wholesome food deserts, fresh produce.

STU: You mean like in LA?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't even understand what this country is turning into anymore. We've got a you know what this is? This is the reason why my former sister in law who I just love to death, Yvonne Donnelly, she is just the best, she used to be a liberal, I mean a flame throwing, "Get out of my way" kind of liberal, okay? "You've got to help the poor" kind of person. She used to be a social worker. She couldn't take it anymore. She did it because she felt it. She was like, you know what? We've got to help people. She got into social work. The last day of her social work, she was sitting in a guy's home and he said, "Hey, there's a big concert coming up and my birthday, and I was wondering, you know, can you get me tickets for..." she said, no, I can't get you tickets for a concert.

STU: Universal tickets?

GLENN: Universal tickets. And he said, well, but it's my birthday and I thought maybe

PAT: There are some people in this country without access to Michael Bublé.

GLENN: Okay, here it is. That wasn't even what made her that was like, "What?" Okay? But what made her walk was he said, "You know, it's just been a really tough month for us. I almost had to cancel my HBO."

PAT: No way.

STU: No.

GLENN: You almost yeah.

STU: That's too low. This country can't sink to that level.

GLENN: She said, "I don't have HBO." She got up and she walked out and she quit.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That wasn't even her turning point. She was just like, well, I can't do that anymore because that system doesn't work. Her turning point was finally September 11th and then she was like, she was actually saying she was watching the television. Her husband's more like me. She was watching television and she said, "How did this happen?" Not a good thing to say to your husband if he's like me. Because he just wheeled around apparently and said, "Because of crazy people like you!"

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). And it took her about two days before she went, "I think you're right. I think you're right." So anyway, I can't you know, we don't need universal access to high speed Internet.

 

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.
