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.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
