GLENN: President Obama said that we should all read the Huffington Post, and I have. And I continue to do so and I thank the president for giving me that advice today because I saw this story on the Huffington Post, and I want to read it to you verbatim because I think it's a very important story. Glenn Beck, historian for a troubled America. The Reverend Jerry Falwell's Liberty University recently conferred upon Glenn Beck an honorary doctorate in the humanities. Quoting the Huffington Post? It's official. Beck is now a doctor of philosophy. I could stop there but why not read on. Liberty University's honoring of Beck is fitting because he has clearly established himself as Fox News' resident historian with his area of expertise being American civilization with emphasis on the early republic, progressivism and the New Deal. Glenn Beck, Ph.D., makes about a million dollars a month, earning him the distinction of being the highest paid historian in the world.

PAT: Done.

STU: That's all you need to read.

PAT: I mean, I'm sold.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Huffington Post. I think you said it all.

STU: That is great.

GLENN: I don't think there's much more to say.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I really don't.

STU: Why read on? Why bother?

GLENN: I mean, the next sentence starts Beck has —

PAT: I mean, it's starting to get embarrassing, isn't it really? These accolades are like, come on.

GLENN: The next sentence starts, Beck has emerged the most influential.

PAT: Please.

STU: That's enough, that's enough.

PAT: It doesn't need to go any further.

STU: Doesn't change at all, America.

GLENN: Oh, well, it does say later, but one of — quoting the article, one of Dr. Beck's main peeve — and I think I want to just focus on the Huffington Post typing out "Dr. Beck." Dr. Beck's main peeve is that his belief that the founders, in quotation marks, the founders intended the United States to be a Christian nation and the idea of a wall of separation of church and state is a myth perpetrated by secular liberal elites. It's not that Beck is wrong. It's not that Beck is wrong about the ambiguity of the personal beliefs on the subject of the founders, but he and others like him are monumentally wrong by overstating the relevance of the intent of 18th century views on the thoughts and practices of the 20 and 21st century America.

So I just want you to understand. Now remember I'm not only a historian but I am also a doctor of philosophy.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: So if I may just point out, the historical part of this, the Huffington Post is verifying, I have right. Yes, yes. But philosophically speaking — and I can go here. Please, Stu, don't interrupt. I'm a doctor.

STU: But I —

PAT: Not only a doctor but —

GLENN: I'm a doctor. I'm a doctor, man! So —

PAT: But the highest paid historian on Earth.

GLENN: On Earth. And I may go as far as saying probably ever. So let me just say as a doctor here what they're saying is they are not only verifying historic fact but they are now saying that what I don't emphasize is the importance or the way things have changed and why we can't really pay attention to that anymore. Almost like we've, if I may as a doctor, evolved or progressed past the Constitution and our founding principles.

PAT: Yeah, and their relevance.

STU: And doctor, you have to point out, doctor, that —

GLENN: Please, please, nurse! Step away from the patient.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Gordon Wood, quoting the article, Gordon S. Wood in June 2006 edition in the New York Times' review of books — now, this is the review, I believe, of the book that I'm saying Sacred Fire which everybody is reading now. It's weird. Anyway, Sacred Fire on George Washington, Gordon S. Wood, June 2006 edition of the New York review of books, which is when this book came out, we can't solve our current disputes over religion by looking back to the actual historical circumstances of the founding. Those circumstances are too complex, too confusing and too biased towards protestant Christianity to be used in courts today. Most of them are remote from or antagonistic to the particular needs of the 21st century. Do you understand? The New York Times is not saying this book is inaccurate.

Glenn Beck's American Revival

Glenn Beck's American Revival is a daylong event where you can find information, inspiration, and the preparation to help turn this country around...

 - Tickets now available!

PAT: Not at all.

GLENN: It's saying that you can't apply those things. It's just too confusing to do that. It's too difficult. It doesn't — it doesn't really, it's not relevant. So as a doctor and the highest paid historian on planet Earth, may I just say in my expert sheep skinned opinion that what historians, the riffraff really of universities, they don't make very much money. If they were good, they would. But those people have taken history and decided in their own philosophical moment — and I don't believe they are doctors of philosophy as I am, they have decided that because it's too complex, they will just edit or change history. For instance, if I may point out in a textbook that a young student gave me just last week, the founders went forward with this idea in the Declaration of Independence that we hold these truths self evident that all men are created and endowed, dot dot dot, with certain inalienable rights. That would be a cheesy historian saying let's leave God out because it gets confusing. Nurse.

STU: Doctor, if you're going to lecture other doctors on their accuracy, you may want to note that you are not a doctor of philosophy but doctor of Manatees. So —

GLENN: No, I think they — I'm just quoting the — I'm just quoting here the Huffington Post because the president told us to read the Huffington Post because it's information you can trust.

STU: This is a presidential approved source.

GLENN: This is a presidential — look, I know I'm a doctor, I have a doctorate of humanities. I know that, okay?

STU: Oh, but the Huffington —

GLENN: Worked very hard for that. But the Huffington Post said it — if I may, if I may, it is recently conferred an honorary doctorate in humanities, it is official: Beck is now a doctor of philosophy.

STU: So wait. This is a separate doctorate.

GLENN: This is —

STU: This is from the Huffington Post?

GLENN: No, this is the Huffington Post. This is the presidential approved title.

STU: So you have the Liberty University doctorate.

GLENN: If I went to — look, you are giving too much information.

STU: Okay, I'm sorry.

GLENN: Information can be confusing.

STU: Sorry, Doctor.

GLENN: There's too much information out there. Just go to the Huffington Post, doctor of philosophy, highest paid historian on planet Earth. Good night, everybody.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
