Glenn Beck: This land is your land, this land is my land...or is it?

GLENN: All right. The reason why he's bringing this up is because last night we were talking about the land grab that's going on, and I don't know if you saw the map from the TV show last night, but is that stunning? Stunning how much land the United States of America owns out west. Stunning. Only 2% of Nevada is not federal land. That's crazy.

PAT: 2%?

GLENN: Wasn't it?

PAT: Was it 98% of Nevada?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: 98%?

GLENN: Wasn't it? Stu, do you remember?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: E mail Tiffany real quick.

STU: I will do that.

GLENN: I'm pretty sure it's 2%.

PAT: That seems high.

GLENN: Does it? 70 doesn't sound high?

PAT: No, 70 sounds very high. 60 sounds high in Utah. So 98? I mean, that's

GLENN: It's crazy what's going on.

PAT: It's criminal.

GLENN: And they're grabbing more land. Now, so we were talking about this because the president is doing a couple of executive orders, one on fishing, one on land, another 15 million acres of land. And something else, too. And we were talking about it and somebody said, you know, This Land is Your Land, this land is my land. Now, I had never I mean, I had heard people talk about, you know, Woody Guthrie and everything else. But it wasn't until that moment that I heard and I thought, oh, my gosh. This Land is Your Land, this land is my land. This land was made for you and me. In other words, we both own it. There is no owner. It's all of our land. There is no, there's no sign of trespass. Do you have the whole thing with all the lyrics, Sarah? How long is that? Because if you listen to the last let's see if we can listen to some more of it here in a second because there's, the final stanzas of this thing are clearly about social justice and no property rights.

STU: Really? I never it's one of those things you just never listen to.

GLENN: It was written in 1940. He was a communist.

STU: I did not know that.

GLENN: I didn't, either.

STU: It says here that he, the concert the guy's talking about says this is from USA Today, concert and folk singer Pete Seeger and Springsteen led the crowd in Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land.

PAT: Yeah. Was Arlo there? Was Arlo Guthrie there, too? Do you know?

STU: That sentence is the entire amount of knowledge I have about the concert.

GLENN: So play the rest of this. Here's Woody Guthrie.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop. The original line was God has made this land for you and me. God has made this land for you and me. Scratched out. This land was made for you and me. Took God out of it. This is where he's breaking it down.

PAT: Taking out the jams.

(Music playing)

GLENN: I mean, he's really got it going on.

PAT: Clearly rocks.

GLENN: Now, it's the next two, it's the next two verses. Keep going. It's the next two verses that you have to hear.

(Music playing)

GLENN: I didn't know it was this verse. It's the next two verses.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Oh, jeez. All right. Please be this verse.

(Music playing)

PAT: He's going to get laughed off American Idol.

GLENN: Stop. He's not going to do it. He's not going to do it. The last two stanzas, and I'm pulling this off my out of my head. I can't remember the beautiful, beautiful rhymes and the lyrics, but it's basically, I went walking and I saw a sign and it said no trespassing. The other side said nothing. That side of the sign was made for you and me. So in other words, you don't have a right to say no trespassing. You have it?

STU: Yeah. They went walking, I saw a sign there and on the sign it said no trespassing but on the other side it didn't say nothing. That side was made for you and me.

GLENN: Okay. Now read the last stanza.

STU: The next one is in the shadow of the steeple, I saw my people. By the relief office I seen my people. As they stood their hungry, I stood there asking, is this land made for you and me? And then the last one is, nobody living can ever stop me as I go walking that freedom highway. Nobody living can ever make me turn back. This land was made for you and me.

GLENN: He was at the relief office and he saw his people. And he wondered, is this land still made for you.

STU: And in the shadow of the steeple as well he was. Is that like the church wasn't doing something? They weren't doing anything, either?

PAT: Probably.

GLENN: Well, the shadow of the steeple he saw his people there by the relief office.

STU: Right. So at the relief office was helping.

GLENN: The government was helping but the church was not.

STU: Is that what he's saying?

PAT: Of course.

GLENN: I haven't smoked enough dope to know.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Look, the point is when we start to look at our own traditions, our own history, our own the things that we grew up thinking, I mean, who thought, this land was made for you and me. Who thought? And I know there's a ton of listeners. "I've known that since 19..." I know, I know, I know. I got it. Some of us weren't paying attention. And we are now. I'm sorry. Historians that have talked to me and said, Glenn, you drive a lot of us nuts. Why? Because you're just discovering all of this and some of us have been toiling on this for years and years and years. And I said, I know. I don't mean to, like it's not like I'm taking your work and going, look what I've discovered. I know I'm not the first to discover this. But I think I'm more like the average person. We didn't pay attention. Because you were on the fringe side of history. What these people were toiling, I feel bad for these professors. How did they live? How did they exist? Knowing what the real history of America was, knowing what really happened and then not being able to get it out in the mainstream. I've had an equal number of professors come to me and say, thank God. We have not been able to get this out in the mainstream; nobody would ever listen because we have all of this academic research but nobody would ever do it because it wasn't accepted. I said, keep spooning it, man. Keep teaching. Keep going. Because now Americans are hungry. We didn't know you know, it's have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night and you've gotten up and you were so powerfully thirsty, you wake up and you're like, "Need water." Have you ever done that? Where you wake up in the middle of the night and you just have to get out of bed and have a glass of water? Now, my wife would say, "I told you you should drink more water. You can't just drink soda. You've got to have water." So I'm not going to tell her that I get up in the middle of the night sometimes and just like... "I've got to have water or I may die." Because what she'll say is... (mumbling). I get it. Now America's really, really, really thirsty and it's like 2:00 in the morning and we're waking up and going... (gagging), "Man, I could use a glass of the truth right now." So keep pouring it, brothers. Keep pouring it. Because people will drink the truth now. They have never really been interested because they didn't need it. Now they need it. Become a truth seeker and a truth spreader because that's what man, that's what I need right now.

(OUT 9:45)

PAT: You know, I think the reason that so many of us don't understand, we haven't come we're a little late to the party on the Woody Guthrie songs and all that, it was just all presented as patriotic to us in school. I mean, how many of us sang This Land is Your Land in school and they were like, well, yeah, that's just super patriotic and just a great song. How many of us go to the Fourth of July fireworks display, we see the fireworks blasting, exploding in the air and we hear Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen like, yeah, Born in the USA and then you get filled with patriotic pride and then you find out that Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA is anti American.

GLENN: Born down in a dead man's town. The first kick I took is when I hit the ground. You end up like a dog that's been beat too much. Until you spend half your life just covering up. Born in the USA. I got in a little hometown jam and somebody put a rifle in my hands, sent me off to Vietnam: Go kill the yellow man. Born in the USA. Come back home to the refinery. Hiring man says, son, if it were up to me. I go down to see the VA man. He said, son, you don't understand. Born in the USA. I have a buddy at Khe Sahn inviting off the Vietcong. They're still there; he's all gone. He had a little girl in Saigon. I got a picture of him in her arms. Down in the shadow of the penitentiary, out by the gas fires of the refinery, I'm ten years down the road, nowhere to run. Ain't got nowhere to go. I'm a long gone daddy in the USA. Born in the USA. I'm a cool rocking daddy in the USA. Born in the USA. Hmmm.

PAT: Yeah!

GLENN: Where are the fireworks?

PAT: Yeah, yeah. That's what it's all about. That's what America's about according to Bruce Springsteen.

GLENN: See, here's the thing that I think people don't understand yet. I think you do. That it is time for us to wake. People who have come from the Soviet bloc or Cuba, they are all saying, how do you guys not hear this? How are you not seeing this? Well, because we don't ever expect it. We've never what? Slowly, ever so slowly they've changed the meaning, changed the words, changed the images, changed the history. Slowly, ever so slowly. Progress. Step by step. Progressive. And because it wasn't done in revolution but instead over a 100 year evolution, we've gone numb. And everything is an empty tradition. Everything is a everything just meaningless. It's like I said stop with the flag lapel pin and stop with all of that stuff. That is not a question of your loyalty. What does the flag even mean? As we know, it can mean something radically different from you than Jeremiah Wright. We have to be based in more than just images, words, and names. Values and principles. More in a second.


 

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:
