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.

 

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
