GLENN: I just oh. I don't even know where to begin. I really the world is upside from Times Square, which always makes sense, in Midtown Manhattan, the third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. Hello, America. I'm glad you're here.

Maybe you can explain this to me. Clyburn now says Republicans are aiding and abetting terrorists against the Democrats. I mean do we have that video? Can you pull that video for me, please, Pat? Clyburn is now saying we're aiding and abetting terrorism against the Democrats. Barack Obama has just broken his biggest campaign promise. What was his biggest campaign promise? That we are going for change, the politics of the past, the politics of fear are over. If you're the President of the United States and you've just passed this health care, you've got to stop the debate on it immediately. You've got to stop all talk. So, what do you do? You immediately go for: These people are hate mongers, these people are racists, these people are violent, and anybody who speaks out on it is part of that category. He promised that he would never use the politics of fear.

George Bush they accused of using Osama Bin Laden. May I just point out here that Osama Bin Laden in a new tape has threatened to kill Americans, but we are now focusing on Clyburn saying Republicans are aiding and abetting terrorism against the Democrats. Well, there's a lot of Americans that think that this administration and this Congress are aiding and abetting actual terrorists, by releasing them into the streets, by tying our hands, but nobody wants to cover that. Nobody wants to cover that. Here's Clyburn.

CLYBURN: This stuff is beyond the pale and they need to stop this because, I can tell you, I've seen how these things escalate.

GLENN: Oh, stop it.

CLYBURN: People out there in the streets get their signals or what they think are their signals from the people in positions like we hold and so if we don't disown that and go, get our people to move beyond that

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop! What then if that is true, what exactly were the signals that the President of the United States was sending and people like Nancy Pelosi was sending when they were taking down the Tea Party goers? What were the signals? Words have consequences, I think, is what he's saying. It's incredible, what these people are doing. It is incredible! And I'm sorry. I'm a little passionate about this because I'm a little passionate about this. Let's just put it this way: The FBI has been a part of my life for a few months, trying to protect me and my children. Beyond that, I can't give you any information. So, don't tell me about threats, sir. Don't tell me about violence, sir. You're bringing these things up and saying, We had to contact the FBI and they had to investigate. Try it the other way around, when the FBI calls you! When you get a phone call from the FBI and they say, Investigators need to meet with you, there's nothing, nothing that feels better.

PAT: And it's not due to anything they're investigating about you.

GLENN: About you.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: When you have people threaten to do unbelievable things to your children, you better know what you believe and believe me, it's a time when you feel very alone, because some of us aren't Congress, some of us don't have the authority to do anything about it. We just hope and pray and while we could escalate things, we do not. We try to defuse.

Please don't talk to me about the brick through your window. The only thing that I have seen Dan, is that the list of this is a partial list, a partial list, and I would just like to give this to you. But the media will never report on this. The media, they'll spin it CNN was doing more today on the violence of the right. Why would they do that? A, to set you up; B, to stop you from talking about health care and what are you going to do to stop it. They are setting the trap to make anybody who is against this bill an enemy of the State, a traitor, a terrorist, a violent killer.

Let me ask you this: The tea parties have been peaceful and, yet, they're dangerous killers. Peaceful but, yet, dangerous. Les look at the bricks through the window. When there's been actual violence, the democratic headquarters, this is the first brick that went through the window. In Denver, there was a brick that went through the window. Who did it? It was a lefty, democratic operative that threw a brick through the democratic window. It was a lefty that did it! Where was the press on the liberal who bit off a man's finger in a health care argument? Bit his finger off. That wasn't somebody on the right. That was somebody on the left. How about the media on all of the damage done by the G 20 protesters? That wasn't a protest from the right. That was a protest from the left. How about the stories of the radio tour that was torn down, blown up, in Seattle? That was done by the left. How about the Hummers, because they get bad gas mileage? That's from the left. How about Amy Bishop, who shot coworkers? She was from the left, an Obama fan. How about the SEIU thugs that beat down opponents at health care rallies? Intimidation? You want intimidation? How about that? How about the SEIU members that the media decided not to cover and you have it on tape as they are beating down a black man, calling him the N word?! How about Ann Coulter?

There's a headline today, Beck's War, FOX host responds to passage of health care reform with violent rhetoric. This is what I said: The battle was lost but the war is not over. That's my violent rhetoric? That's my violent rhetoric? Now I can't even use cliches. Do you see the message being sent here? Shut up, because we will get you. And let me just say this: You may get me, but you will not stop us. We will speak in do you know what? Do you know what, honestly? If I were in Cuba and Chai rounded me up, I would hope that my last words against that firing squad or against that wall for speaking out would not be "Please, please, please don't kill me," but "Long live the republic."

You may destroy me, but you will have to kill me to stop me from speaking out. You will not stop Americans from defending their liberty. When I say defending liberty, as I have said for a very long time, Gandhi was right. Martin Luther King was right. Peace will solve this. The other side may send attack dogs. While Martin Luther King had to face German shepherds, we have to face SEIU and leftist thugs. That's okay. We will continue to stand. We will continue to march forward. We will not pick up a weapon because our greatest weapon will be God. Ann Coulter had a building in Canada surrounded by people with sticks and stones but, yet, the mainstream media doesn't want to, doesn't want to highlight that. They want the name calling highlighted. A great philosopher once said sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. The violence of the words "Kill the bill," right now the FBI has bill, just a bill on Capitol Hill. You know, the bill that we used to watch on Saturday mornings. He's in protective custody now. We don't know exactly why people are threatening to kill the cartoon bill, but that kind of rhetoric just has to stop.

If speaking out is dangerous, then, yes, I'm a dangerous man. If speaking your mind in America is somehow or another a problem, then I'm a troublemaker. But if you want to paint the Tea Party goes as violent, seeing all the violence so far not all of it, but most have been from the thugs on the left, the verifiable violence on the left. If you want to look at the violence of the Tea Party goers where I can't find it I hear naughty names man, we would make really bad revolutionaries. Do you know why you don't want violence? Because if that's the violence you do, you suck. Look at the violence of the left. They seem to have a head start. Let's keep them, keep them, the leaders in anything despicable. It is not in the best interest of the republic and I'm sorry to lecture you on that. I don't mean to you know that. You are not violent.

We need, quite honestly, the Lord more than ever before in this country and he will come to our defense. He will be there with us. He will allow us to get through anything and to take any insults, take any blows to the body if we just ask him for forgiveness for our sloppiness on what we've done to his freedoms. We were supposed to be guardians of it, and we've done a very bad job. Beg him for forgiveness and ask for his help and guidance. He will part the seas, not for us but for future generations because freedom belongs to him and he has been gracious enough to allow us to drink from its cup. It will not be lost.

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.
