GLENN: Let's see. Let me go to, let me go to Linda in Louisiana. Hello, Linda.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn.

GLENN: Hi.

CALLER: How are you today?

GLENN: Good, how are you?

CALLER: I'm good. That last call was a real... but anyway, that's not why I called.

GLENN: All right.

CALLER: You are not going to like this.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

CALLER: But I have written something and I actually came across it again this morning. So it's kind of something that's been around for a little while in my mind, and here goes. I hope you let me get through this whole thing.

GLENN: I'm very nerve I'm very nervous. Have you talked to our phone screener yet?

CALLER: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: All right. Go ahead.

CALLER: Yeah. Ten reasons why Glenn Beck should be president: One

GLENN: No.

GLENN: I'm making my list, Linda.

CALLER: Let me finish.

GLENN: I'm making a list. It's point/counterpoint.

CALLER: I'll send it to you. He understands the history of the country and what it means today. Number four, he understands the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and will hold to these. Number five, he doesn't want to change the country into something else, but he would like to restore it to what it really should be. Number six, he's a capitalist, and he believes in the free market system. Number seven, he knows failure and he knows what it means to fail. Number eight, he admits when he is wrong. Number nine, he believes in God and understands the role that this plays in our government. Number ten, he, like George Washington, doesn't want the job. And, when he's finished, he'll go home, plus has a great, great chalkboard.

PAT: (Laughing). That's a pretty good list. That's a pretty good list.

GLENN: I've got eight. I could only write eight. Now let me speak. Linda

CALLER: I don't like it, I know you don't like it, I'm sorry, Glenn, but it's the truth. I have looked for George Washington. I have looked for all of them. And I can't find them anywhere! And the only person that even sounds like it, even acts like it is you. And I'd love to know how many other people out there feel the same way I do. And if you can't do it, my husband has a request. Would you please write and put together your plan, the real plan for what this country needs to do and put it on the Internet, Glenn. Let everybody see it! Show people what we need to do! Write it all out! Put it out there! We need it!

GLENN: Okay. Linda.

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: I appreciate your feeling and I appreciate your passion. I really do. I am working as hard as I can and I'm working

CALLER: I understand, Glenn.

GLENN: I'm working as fast as I can.

CALLER: I know. I see how tired you are half the time. I can see it in your face. I can hear it in your voice. I know you're tired. But this is

GLENN: I know, I know. Linda, let me give you my list. Let me let me give you my list.

CALLER: Nero and how he was fiddling when Rome was burning. Well, guess what? The whole world seems to be on fire and what is the president doing? He's either dribbling or putting!

GLENN: All right, let me give you my list. First of all, reasons why I can't be the president of the United States: I'd actually use the nukes. Two, I have absolutely no political base. There is no one that would want me to be president of the United States as a the RNC, the DNC, it's just not going to happen. And with both of those machines against me in particular because of other things on the list, there's just not a chance of winning.

Three, there are much more qualified people out there. We just have to convince them. Anybody who anybody who has benefitted from this nation, it is time to go back even to our you know, one of the things I've been thinking about lately is you people who are retired, you're retired. Now, some people need to be retired at 65. Most do not. Get off the damn golf course! We need you. We need you to teach. We need you to teach our youth. For those people who have greatly benefitted and you are a former CEO or you're a former leader in anything, come back to work; we need you! Smarter people than me.

Four, my baggage of my life prior to this would disqualify me because of the way it would be used against me. The fact that there isn't an honest damn broker in the media, they will hold Jon Stewart up as a journalist, as a journalist and give him awards and they can somehow or another figure out when he's joking and when he's not joking but then everything I've ever said, most of which that gets me in trouble I've said as a joke in a Jon Stewart sort of fashion, that, of course, I mean realistically. There's not a chance.

Five, my wife and my family.

Six, my wife.

Seven, I came this close to losing my soul once before and I'm not going to lose my soul. And quite honestly, I just talked to a guy who was running for Senate. I spoke to him last night and I said, what makes you think you can go in there and not lose your soul? And he said, I'm not worried about it. And I said, then excuse me, sir, excuse me. You are exactly the kind that will because if you don't have a healthy dose of fear, you're going in against a machine. And quite honestly let me quote Ephesians: We are not battling flesh and blood. We are battling, I truly believe, the powers of darkness for our very souls, and it has nothing to do with Washington and it has everything to do with each of us.

And a selfish one at number eight: The president, the next president has to be a man that understands the patient has chemotherapy. This president that we have now and the people in office now will either convince you to do nothing, do little things, just eat better. Your heart has cancer. Just eat better, exercise. This president I think may in the end recommend that the heart is cut out because the heart is causing the problem. The next president has to convince the American people that they need chemotherapy. They need chemotherapy and it's going to hurt really, really badly. And I don't think I've tried. I've tried. I don't think I'm the guy that can convince them.

Linda, thanks for your call.

Did Google create a SENTIENT artificial intelligence?

Did Google create a sentient artificial intelligence?

A software engineer on Google’s artificial intelligence development team, Blake Lemoine, is convinced that the company's A.I. is now sentient and able to hold conversations at the level of a 7 or 8-year-old child. Google has dismissed Lemoine's claims and suspended him, but as Glenn Beck noted on the radio program, this isn't the first time a company insider has warned of the possible existence, and potential threat, of artificial general intelligence.

Glenn shared the details of Lemoine's "very disturbing story" and broke down the pros (curing cancer and other deadly diseases) and cons (the complete inhalation of the human race) of the remarkable scientific advancements in artificial intelligence.

"Because of high tech, we're going to see miracles in our lives," Glenn said. "The tricky part is to not see horror shows in our lifetimes."

Here's why oil companies REALLY aren't producing more gas

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

The Biden administration has been accusing oil producers of refusing to expand operations to help offset skyrocketing gas prices. On Wednesday, President Joe Biden even wrote a letter to seven major U.S. oil refiners, essentially saying that the administration is prepared to use emergency orders to force companies into compliance if their "greed" just doesn't stop.

"Your companies need to work with my Administration to bring forward concrete, near-term solutions that address the crisis,” Biden wrote. The letter went on to accuse refineries of capitalizing on the war between Russia and Ukraine, gleaning record-high profits while Americans suffer record-high pain at the pump.

But no matter how he tries to convince you otherwise, President Joe Biden isn't trying to bring down gas prices. In fact, he's doing just the opposite, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Thursday.

"Why aren't the oil companies putting more oil out? Well, they're a couple of reasons. And none of those have to do with Joe Biden. None of them, even though it was Joe Biden that said, when he was running [for president] that he was going to put oil out of business."

Glenn first played a clip of then-candidate Biden saying, "No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period."

The next clip had White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shifting the blame for high gas prices from Russia's war with Ukraine to U.S. oil refineries.

"We want you to act. It's time to act," Jean-Pierre said, addressing U.S. oil companies. "We have done our part, with the strategic oil reserve. We are calling on them to do the right thing, to be patriots here. And to not use the war as an excuse or as a reason to not put -- to not put out a production, to not do the capacity that is needed there."

A third clip showed Biden’s climate envoy John Kerry saying in no uncertain terms that the U.S. “absolutely" does not need to drill for more oil and gas, during a talk with the USC Center for Public Diplomacy

The Biden administration has made it clear that insanely high gas prices are all part of the plan to eliminate fossil fuels. But the problem doesn't stop there. The ESG war against oil industries is being waged across the world.

Glenn read an op-ed from Vivek Ramaswamy that explains how BlackRock is manipulating corporations like Exxon to decrease oil production, while Americans continue to suffer majorly at the pump.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been telling those naughty Americans who are struggling to afford fuel for their older, gas-guzzling vehicles to just go get a brand-new electric vehicle like the Ford Mustang Mach-E (listed at a market average of $47,553 in Consumer Reports.)

Here he is, all "charged up, ready to go" and, oh, so "excited to go pick up a friend" (Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm) and share the "momentous" news about a new" national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers."

And who could forget the transportation secretary's helpful advice to people who can't afford record-high gas prices in March?

"Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people, as well," said Buttigieg. "Last month we announced a $5 billion investment to build out a nationwide electric vehicle charging network, so the people from rural to suburban to urban communities can all benefit from the gas savings of driving an EV."

But now that Ford is recalling 48,924 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles because of a defect in the vehicle’s "battery contactor," will Buttigieg have to go back to riding his bike — back and forth from his security detail's giant SUV that follows along behind him, which was definitely not ever a publicity stunt?

According to Consumer Reports, Ford is recalling the Mach-E because the vehicle’s battery contactor may overheat, causing the vehicle to lose power while driving. A Ford spokesperson said the company plans to send an over-the-air software update for current Mach-E owners in July.

Unlike out-of-touch Buttigieg, Washington Examiner national political reporter Salena Zito understands the current sentiments of the average American. She joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about sky-high gas prices, spreading crime, the never-ending border crisis, and all the other reasons Americans are fed up with the current administration.

While Democrats try to get us to focus on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, most of us are struggling to afford the insane gas prices, which recently passed $5 on average across the country.

"There isn't a time that I don't pull up to a gas station where you don't hear someone cuss at the gas pump," Zito told Glenn. And that news, she predicted, could be "monstrous" for Democrats in the upcoming midterms.

In his episode “Famine & Blackouts: How Biden-Made Disasters Will Cripple America,” Glenn Beck exposed the new global-based rule changes that gave the World Health Organization expedited authority over our nation. He traced the changes to the SEC and revealed Bank of America’s fawning praise for climate-related market changes.

So, Glenn decided to dig further, and what he uncovered shocked him. Financial records, dark money groups, and groups tied to the U.N. and the World Economic Forum are all pushing for a total reorganization of our financial system. You never voted for globalist leadership outside our borders, but IT IS HAPPENING.

Glenn reveals the foreign actors who are REALLY running our country right now and the domestic TRAITORS who are helping to fund the implementation on Main Street, USA. There will be catastrophic consequences for this betrayal of America First ideas. If you think food, gas, and labor shortages are bad now, just wait until all of this goes through.
