Fish out of Water: Glenn @ Time 100

GLENN: Okay. So last night I'm at this Time 100 most influential people and like, everybody's there, everybody's there. Lorne Martin Michaels, I talked to him last night from Saturday Night Live. He was a very nice guy. And the guy who's with me said, wow, he's a fan of the show. I said, what makes you say that? He said before we left, you know, "Hey, you just keep stay on the air, brother, just stay on the air." And I said, not a fan of the I'm good for comedy! I'm good for their comedy! It's not it's like Jon Stewart. Jon Stewart's not thinking, "Yeah, get that guy off the air." I'm good for him and his ratings. Please. But he was very nice.

Seth, what's his name?

STU: Seth Meyers.

GLENN: Seth Meyers, really kind, very nice. He might have been making fun of me the whole time, I don't know. But he seemed to be very kind and very nice. And who's the other guy with the glasses that's on Saturday Night Live that did "In a box"?

STU: Andy Sandberg.

GLENN: Hysterical.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Hysterical. Didn't meet him last night because I didn't know him. I don't watch Saturday Night Live. I just watch clips once in a while. Didn't know him and so I didn't get a chance to talk to him, but he was funny last night. He did a roast of a few of the people on the Time 100 list. I was surprisingly one of them. But it was very, very funny.

I'm trying to think who else was Bill Clinton talked about the unsustainable Earth.

PAT: There are just not enough fat chicks. There are just not enough fat chicks to sustain life.

GLENN: You know what it seemed it was weird. It seemed like it was 1,000 years ago that he was

PAT: Did you get a little nostalgic? I mean, when I see him sometimes, it's almost like, "Oh, please come back."

GLENN: Oh, it was I swear to you

PAT: Oh, please.

GLENN: If I didn't know how entangled they were in, you know, all of the things that are going on.

PAT: You'd think, wouldn't you?

GLENN: I would. You'd be like, oh, man.

PAT: The days of Bill Clinton, those were great days.

GLENN: Remember when we just were in constitutional crisis?

PAT: Remember that?

GLENN: Those were the days.

PAT: Oh, selling secrets to the Chinese and

GLENN: What I'd give just for somebody selling secrets to the Chinese.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: What I'd give for just the days when we were only worried about impeaching the president of the United States.

PAT: Oh, those were the days. Man, those were the good times.

GLENN: Life was simple then.

PAT: Good times.

GLENN: So but, boy, he's really aged. He really, he's aged. But it was nice to see a president deliver something without a TelePrompTer. Last year I was there and Michelle Obama had a TelePrompTer. It was like, we should just, we should put those things, you know, just like make them so they come off their legs. You know what I mean? Just like a bar that comes off of their legs, their thighs and then another bar comes up with a TelePrompTer right there. I think that's what we should have. But anyway, but beforehand we're standing around and I'm just trying to get to the bar. You know, I'm not going to drink but I just, I wanted to at least be near the liquor. And they put it all the way on the other side of the room. I just want to stand, take a long time to make my choice. I don't know, you have looks like you have Sprite there and club soda. What other nonalcoholic beverages do you have? Just drag it out as long as you can so you don't have to talk to anybody at this thing. And Joe Klein comes up and I at first I think he's, you know, I don't know. Maybe he's Robert Reich. You know, I'm really bad with names and faces and everything else. And so I look down. You know how somebody just kind of inserts themselves into your conversation and they stand uncomfortably close to make sure you notice them? And this person did that and then so I kind of turned to him and I had to look way down because I think he's about 3 1/2 feet tall. And I'm thinking, oh, short bearded man, it's Robert Reich. And then I go you know, it's one of those things like, you know the face. And so I smile and I'm like, hey. Because you never know. You never know, do I really like this person; do I not really like this person? I should have remembered I was at the Time 100, so I probably odds are I don't like this person. But I didn't know who it was and so I'm like, hey, and I smile. The guy I'm talking to and I don't even remember who that was he said, "That's Joe Klein."

STU: You should point out to the audience that Joe Klein is a writer, right, for Time.

GLENN: Used to be. Or maybe currently still is.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: You know.

STU: But

PAT: This is one of the things he said about you.

MATTHEWS: Now, she said it was just his policies, not him. But those words are license words. They are permission words.

KLEIN: You know, I did a little bit of research just before this show — it's on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of "sedition" which is: Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck and, to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right next — right up close to being seditious...

GLENN: I feel bad for him, I really do. I feel bad for him. He was so desperate to be important at all.

STU: Yeah, and that's what he's doing in that clip. Like, he is not doing that because he believes that. He is doing that because he's very angry that you have humiliated him numerous times, embarrassed him to the point that his mother would not want to talk to him

GLENN: I think that's

STU: On national television.

GLENN: I think that's what happened because the guy standing in front of me said, that's Joe Klein. And I said, "Oh, hey, Joe." And the guy thought, I think he thought he was going to humiliate me and make me uncomfortable. And he said, "You got your pipe? Because you should do your professor thing now in front of him." And I said and I just looked right at Joe and I said, anytime, anytime.

STU: You are not afraid

GLENN: If I had my pipe, I would have done it: "Oh, hello, Joe, how are you, sir?" And then he just got all in my face with his finger and then he's, you know, doing some Hulk, you know, strongman grip on my arm and I just do this. And he said, yeah, maybe we should let go of each other's arms. And I'm like, you are a jerk! And I said, "Joe, I never have once questioned this president's birth certificate. I have never questioned that."

STU: And he knows that, of course.

GLENN: Of course he does. I've never questioned it.

PAT: Repeatedly.

GLENN: Repeatedly. Stop it! You are wrong, you know you're wrong; stop it. And he said he said, "Oh, you don't question his..."

PAT: Policies, didn't he?

GLENN: No, he said you don't question his you don't question his legitimacy? You question his policies and say that his policies don't seem American to you. That's questioning his legitimacy!

STU: Unbelievable.

GLENN: And I said, oh, my

PAT: You can't question a president's policies?

GLENN: Can't question his policies!

PAT: According to Time magazine's Joe Klein, it is wrong in America

STU: Wow.

PAT: to question the president of the United States' policies?

GLENN: His policies. His policies.

PAT: That is unbelievable!

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

GLENN: That's Cass Sunstein. That is Cass Sunstein. Cass Sunstein says if you question the policies, that makes you anti government.

STU: Yeah, well, he says though only that

PAT: That's anti American.

STU: That you should be that Cass Sunstein advocates infiltrating groups that do such things.


STU: Where Joe Klein is accusing you of sedition which has penalties much higher than just having people infiltrate you.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. So I just said, "You are wrong in almost everything that has ever you've ever written. You are just wrong, and stop it." And I walked away and I said, okay, that Sprite, can you put some Jack Daniels in this? Not that I'm going to drink it, but is it can I ignite it?

STU: Now, when you said he got up in your face, was he standing in a chair?

GLENN: I say he attempted to reach my face.

STU: Okay, all right.

GLENN: He attempted to reach my face.

STU: What was the angle? Was the angle like 80?

GLENN: No, he brings he has like a little no, he has a little stepladder.

STU: Oh, okay, that's cute. That's adorable.

GLENN: And you know what's nice? He arrived in a little clown car.

STU: Really?

PAT: That's cool.

STU: How many of him got out?


STU: Oh, just the one?

PAT: Must have been roomy, really, really roomy.

GLENN: Yeah, lot of room. For a man his size it was like an Escalade.

STU: (Laughing). We have to say, though, yesterday's program, Pat and I talked after the show yesterday and we decided we really like the program mainly because your attitude, you were so sort of ornery and angry and just ready to go at everybody. So we decided to just, just try to just ignite that every day.

PAT: We're going to poke you with pickle forks before every show.

GLENN: That's very good, thank you.

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"
