GLENN: Because see, I think they thought that, you know, Glenn Beck because I saw a lot of, Glenn Beck's going to be crying today." No, no, no. That was Patrick Kennedy. He was crying. He was on TV. Do we have that? I'm not crying. I'm actually kind of, I'm kind of sure, I'm disappointed because I really thought, I had this crazy idea that, you know, we the people still mattered to members of the Democratic Party but apparently not. Crazy, old fashioned idea.

But once I got past that, I'm like, good, good, good. Now Americans and I'm going to play the audio for you. Now Americans will know what I said is right. No, no. And you are just not going to shake people off of this now. And you are bringing more people there. You are bringing them! Barack Obama, you yourself said you couldn't govern with 51 votes. You couldn't govern. You didn't even get 51 votes! You had to go through all kinds of tricks. You couldn't even get it done the right way with 51 votes in the Senate! You couldn't do it. So you yourself say you can't govern. You're right. You are right. You are right. Which is weird because also, I think I said about a year ago the good news is these people are radical revolutionaries. They know how to create chaos but they don't know how to govern. Hmmm. Hmmm, that's interesting. It's almost like they don't know how to govern. Which means it's kind of a spooky thing for us which means they have to get more and more dangerous to us. They will reveal themselves because they will become more and more hostile. They will become more and more thug like, more and more dangerous to individuals that stand up. So stick your courage to the sticking place and stand up, jack. Now's the time to be counted. You an American, are you a mouse? Are you European? Is that what you are? I know that my forebearers came here for a reason and it wasn't to be more like Europe. It was to get away from Europe. We've been a different place. So have they turned you into a European, you know, mush mouth? I'm going to lay out some stuff tonight at Fox at 5:00. Yep, we'll see where I'm headed. I think you are going to want to join me. Could be wrong. If you are looking for Obama cash, you are going to have to go find another show. Because this one's not going to be looking for Obama cash. I just don't think you are, either.

Do you have just a quick taste of, just the part where he's crying.

VOICE: And this president stood by. I salute President Obama. He has been the president and even more than my father could have ever imagined. And this speaker that I've supported, Speaker Pelosi, worked hard. She's an unsung hero. Her ambition for children in this country, all of whom are going to get covered under this bill. And my hat is off to her. She's really provided moral and political leadership and worked, worked, worked.

GLENN: Oh, you know what's really great is when you could get your moral leadership from Nancy Pelosi and then get your praise of that moral leadership from a Kennedy, you know we're headed in the right direction.

(OUT 10:20)

GLENN: It's amazing what these people have, what they've done and the trap that they've laid for themselves. You've got all the old people who now are going to be losing their insurance through AARP. How AARP thinks they are going to survive this is beyond me. I mean, it's just, it's incredible. And, you know, it's bipartisan. Yes, the opposition was bipartisan. 34 Democrats joined every single Republican to say no. 34 Democrats. You are right, it is bipartisan. That was it. The rest of them were arm twisted or bought into bribery or they were part of that progressive movement. The only thing that was in lockstep are the Marxists and the progressives and the radicals. That's it. Those are the only ones. But they look good. It's not lockstep as much as goose step which is very, very nice, especially this time of year. Springtime in Hitler for Germany, that whole, that's a snappy number. Anyway, Stu, would you please play the prediction that I made before Scott Brown was elected? Here it is.

STU: This is, yes, this is right before the election, this is the Kennedy audio we're talking about.

GLENN: If you lose Ted Kennedy's seat at this time in history on this issue, how are the rest of the Democrats going to fare in the rest of the country? So if you are dealing with Democrats, here's what's going to happen? Democrats are going to say whoa, whoa, whoa, 1994, we need to triangulate, we need to go back and, you know, we need to be centrists, we need to back off all of this policies. But if they are Saul Alinsky, Marxists, Maoists, progressive revolutionaries, Saul Alinsky teaches step on the gas. He says when you're surrounded, when you're at this point, Saul Alinsky says that's when you accelerate. So let's see what they do. Do they in their actions, not their words, in their actions do they become moderates or do they become Marxists. Do they accelerate? Look at what we're looking at at this point. If Scott Brown wins, Nancy Pelosi has already said we're going to do it anyway. That means in a referendum on healthcare with the deciding vote, if they accelerate like Nancy Pelosi says, that means your voice, your vote doesn't matter.

Let's look at the record. Your voice doesn't matter if Nancy Pelosi accelerates. If they do it anyway, that means you're out of the picture. Now, what they did we're joining back live again. What they did was exactly that. But how did they get Stupak on board? They said just sign an executive order that will usurp the law. That's not the way executive orders work. And if this congress makes it so the president can change the law with a stroke of the pen, that an executive order can override what the law of the land is, congress has created a dictator. Oh, this is going to get fun.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"And so, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
