GLENN: Do you remember the blizzard in 2010? It was a global warming thing. In Norfolk, Virginia we had to cancel a Bold Fresh Tour with Bill O'Reilly. The makeup date is May 21st at 8:00 p.m. at the Ted Constant Center. But because that one is sold out, we've added a matinee May 21st at 3:00 p.m. and so we would love to invite you there to come and see that. Tickets are available for the 3:00 p.m. show. Then we're going to hit the road again June 18 in Columbus, Ohio at the nationwide arena. June 19th we're going to be in St. Louis at the Chaffetz arena which I just did something at, what, about three months ago and it was sold out. Great arena. And when Bill gets there, we tear it up. For tickets go to The tickets are going fast. Why? Because Bill O'Reilly is there and he's with us now. Hello, Bill.

O'REILLY: That's right, Beck. You define that perfectly, that is why the tickets are going fast. Particularly in the Tidewater in Virginia, we want everybody in the Richmond area, we want everybody in Virginia.

GLENN: Everybody.

O'REILLY: To wise up real fast. Go to And this is the hottest ticket of the summer. You can forget about Springsteen. You can forget about Bon Jovi. I didn't think of Bon Jovi. Let me ask you this.


GLENN: Have you always been this humble?

O'REILLY: You know, it takes a lot of work.

GLENN: Yes, it does.

O'REILLY: To be as humble as I am.

GLENN: I know it does. I know you work on it all the time. Bill, let me ask you this. This is a serious question: Have you heard the Bertha Lewis audio yet?

O'REILLY: Yes, I have. And I am featuring it on the Factor this evening.

GLENN: Will you ask her if she's a FEMA camp conspiracy theorist?

O'REILLY: You know, look. I had her on my program. I don't know if you remember that.

GLENN: I do.

O'REILLY: She came on. Very respectful, by the way.

GLENN: Yes, she was.

O'REILLY: This is when you and I were just beating the hell out of ACORN. And I have to give credit to Beck even though it pains me.

GLENN: It does.

O'REILLY: Beck got on this early, for you radio listeners, if you don't watch us on television, shame on you, first of all. But Beck got on her very early and we discussed it, Beck and I. And I said, let me send my guys down to New Orleans.


O'REILLY: And I sent the Factor guys down there and they found out that tens of millions of dollars were going to a funeral home, a former funeral home.

GLENN: Wait, why do you

O'REILLY: A bunch of guys, you know, were sitting there just counting the money and it was off the chart. And because of that, Beck and I got the Louisiana attorney general to launch a full blown investigation of this, of ACORN and its finances. And off that congress just said no more public money. Now, in an effort to save her butt, Bertha Lewis, the CEO of ACORN, came on the Factor and but she is a hard core socialist. This is one of the times I agree with you. I mean, this woman is a hard core socialist, maybe a communist and, you know, it's power to the people right on, let's bring back Huey Newton.

GLENN: And the News?

O'REILLY: No, that's Huey Lewis.

GLENN: Oh, okay.

O'REILLY: Good try.

GLENN: So Bill.


GLENN: Here's Barack Obama. Play the clip of Barack Obama, you know, talking about ACORN. Here he is.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: You know you've got a friend in me, and I definitely welcome ACORN's input. You don't have to ask me about that. I'm going to call you even if you didn't ask me.

When I ran Project Vote, voter registration drive in Illinois, you know, ACORN

GLENN: Stop. It goes on for a while.

O'REILLY: Yeah, but why would you be surprised? I mean, he was a community organizer in a black neighborhood in Chicago where ACORN is all over the place. So why would you be surprised that he would be with them?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second. I'm a good and I know you are, too, Bill, you are a good church going guy. You go every Sunday, I go every Sunday. We try to live it in our lives, yada, yada, yada. Great, got it. Just because somebody goes to church and I go to church, if they are going to the church of Lucifer, I don't reach out and say, "Hey, buddy, we both are church going guys." Here's Barack Obama

O'REILLY: Let's be fair to Obama here. And I can just hear some of your audience screaming right now.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

O'REILLY: But let's be fair. Barack Obama

GLENN: I was not being fair?

O'REILLY: Was a guy with a plan, okay? He's a man with a plan.

GLENN: Uh huh.

O'REILLY: In Chicago's south side.


O'REILLY: All right? And he has his eye on higher office all the time. He gets the job, and he's not going to investigate ACORN or Bill Ayers or Reverend Wright.

GLENN: You don't have to investigate. Bill, if I took you wait, wait, wait, wait. If I took you over to a friend's house and my friend had gone to jail and had blown up the Pentagon and was famous and I thought maybe you're an intelligent guy and you might know, do you think on the way over, I might go, hey, by the way, we're going over to this guy's house, I don't know if you know he is, but he blew up the Pentagon; don't say anything about it. Don't you think that conversation happened? It's not like, "Wait a minute! You blew up the Pentagon? What?"

O'REILLY: I think it this is how it goes down, not just with Barack Obama. With almost every politician unfortunately. They make a calculation, all right? "How can I use ACORN, how can I use Ayers, how can I use Reverend Wright."

GLENN: He's wrong.

O'REILLY: You know, is it going to be a backlash against me.

GLENN: He's wrong.

O'REILLY: And they weren't smart enough to figure out that there would be.

GLENN: Just want to let you know he's wrong.

O'REILLY: I may be wrong but I'm trying to tell you what realpolitik is. This is what they do.

GLENN: Not him. Not him.

O'REILLY: If ACORN was helping Barack Obama, which it was

GLENN: You know, you have it right except exactly at 180 degrees in the wrong direction. He is, he is a guy who does what he has to do.


GLENN: But you're starting to the starting point for you is he's a guy who just loves the founding fathers and the Constitution and everything else.

O'REILLY: I didn't say that.

GLENN: Hang on. And he's just kind of, you know, he's doing he's making friends with these Marxists and these radicals and everything else and he's just using them because he gets elected. No, no, no. No, no, no. I think he's a radical and he's

O'REILLY: You might be right.

GLENN: And he's using the useful idiots who are like, "No, he's not a... that's crazy."

O'REILLY: You bet, yes.

GLENN: He's saying what he has to to get elected.

O'REILLY: You might be right. But in a court of law

GLENN: Wait, wait, say that again.

O'REILLY: If you were to take that in now.

GLENN: I think I could win.

O'REILLY: You'd lose.

GLENN: I think I could win.

O'REILLY: There is not

GLENN: I've talked to judges about it. I think I could win.

O'REILLY: No, you would lose, Beck. In fact, you'd be assessed court costs and you'd have to pay Barack Obama. Just like

GLENN: That's why I'm asking, that's why I'm asking people right now to buy a ticket. To buy a ticket to see Bill O'Reilly and I on stage.

O'REILLY: It's a riot. Give me 30 seconds. Do you have a break that you have to take?

GLENN: Yes, I do.


GLENN: Give me real quick.

O'REILLY: If people should buy Father's Day presents in Columbus and in Virginia and in St. Louis, take your dad. Go with your dad. That will be the best Father's Day gift you could give him. Beck and I put on a show you'll never forget.

GLENN: You can have the old man go see Bill O'Reilly. Have the old lady come see me. Chicks dig me. Mother's Day, mom loves me. Mom loves me.

O'REILLY: And how could you not?

GLENN: Available at Bill, talk to you later.

O'REILLY: All right.

GLENN: Thanks, man. Bye bye.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how "rabid partisanship" is causing President Joe Biden and his administration to make the political decisions directly responsible for the "absolute crisis at the border" — and it's getting worse every day.

Cruz described how the Biden administration is caving to the "hard left" agenda that supports open borders and views U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan or Nazis. He listed the Trump-era policies Biden has overturned, including halting construction of the border wall, re-instituting the failed policy of "catch and release," and ending the "Remain in Mexico" policy — "a big foreign policy victory of the Trump administration."

Cruz then sounded off on the left's unbelievable hypocrisy concerning the "kids in cages" narrative, and the Biden administration's "laughable" excuse for not allowing journalists access to border facilities.

"For four years of the Trump presidency, Democrats and the media talked every day about kids in cages. What they ignored is that Barack Obama built the cages. You and I both went to those cages during the Obama administration," Cruz told Glenn. "They utterly ignored that. And now, Joe Biden is making the cages bigger, and they're more full. And I'll tell you, it's truly a catastrophe. You take a facility, like the Donna facility in South Texas. It has a capacity of 250 people ... it currently has nearly 4,000."

"So, there's a reason why the Biden administration is trying to hide it. I'm flying down to the border tonight, and I'm bringing 18 senators down to the border to see firsthand what's happening. But the Biden administration is refusing to allow press to join us," Cruz continued.

"They won't allow reporters in and, Glenn, their justification is laughable on its face. They say, the reason why they won't allow reporters in is because reporters might have COVID. So one cameraman, a cameraman, and they say, 'No, too big of a COVID risk. We can't let the guy with the camera in.' It's because they want to hide the absolute disaster," he added. "You want to talk about COVID-19? Glenn, I'll give you a stunning statistic. Of the illegal immigrants that are being released in Arlington, Texas, they are testing positive for COVID-19 at a rate seven times higher than the U.S. population."
