GLENN: Opinion piece. The special relationship with the United States and England is over. We gave America years of unwavering support after September 11th and now look how Barack Obama's administration is repaying us. First, Obama declared that America was neutral over the sovereignty of the Falklands, ignoring the clear wishes of the island's populations. Second, his assistant Secretary of State Philip Crowley stubbed Britain by failing to use the proper name, instead, calling them the Malvinas. I don't know where Obama learned about diplomacy, but his stinks. I'm normally pro American, but Mr. Obama's seeming support for the Argentinian aggressors who have no legitimate claim over the Falklands is gratuitously offensive. So, from today I'm boycotting America as a tourist destination. This summer I'll be going to France, not California. Let me be clear, the writer writes, Let me be clear, I am not normally in favor of boycotts and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly and I hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States, but the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies and something must be done to stop Obama's reckless foreign policy before he does if dirty on his allies on every issue.

I have if I may reverse Michelle Obama's quote, I, in my life, have never been so ashamed of my country. I have never, ever wanted to go overseas and apologize for our country. We have I've always despised people who have done that. I despised it with anybody, any celebrity, anybody goes over and bad mouths our country, but I have to tell you, I may apologize tonight to the entire world because they watch us all around the world on FOX. I may apologize for our country because it is not the American people that think that England is not our ally. I don't know what the hell. We didn't vote for we didn't vote for a President to pee all over our allies and that is exactly what this President is doing. With Great Britain, geez, not only the Falklands but this is exactly what the President did with Jerusalem, with Jerusalem. He's not calling the his aids are not calling the Falklands the Falklands. They're calling it a different name, but what is what happened in Israel? What is his name, Brennan?

PAT: Yeah. John Brennan.

GLENN: John Brennan, he's giving this speech and he doesn't call Jerusalem Jerusalem. Why? Call it the Arab name.

VOICE: In my travels, the city I've come to love the most is Al Quds.

GLENN: Al Quds. Al Quds. That's the Arab name for Jerusalem. I mean, if you're a pissed off Arab, who is, like, we're going to destroy that is Al Quds. Okay. Good. Good. Good. We have sided against all of the bad guys with Israel and we are poking England in the eye every step of the way. Not only did we return the bust of Winston Churchill, a clear slap in the face. My gosh, I'm sorry, England, a clear slap in the face. What did we give

PAT: How about the movie set, the Blockbuster movie set.

GLENN: We gave as a gift, we gave movies that they can't even watch in the DVR's over there.

PAT: Gave them, like, Porky's and

STU: Porky's Revenge.

GLENN: Then we gave the queen an iPod with speeches that Obama gave. Who doesn't want that? Oh, geez. Thanks. The queen should have said, Do you know how many of you people I have seen come through and when I say you people, I mean you Presidents. All of you Presidents, you come and go. I've been here since World War II. Take your iPod and put it where the sun don't shine.

PAT: She listens to a lot of those speeches while jogging, I guess.

GLENN: She does. I can see her with ear buds in.

STU: To be fair, they are remixed. It has a beat, at least.

PAT: Yeah. So, when he says he's been to all 57 states in that one speech, it's got a beat behind it.

GLENN: Yeah. So, that's really, really cool. Then the Falklands. Then BP. What he's saying about threatening to even take over BP or seize their assets, when he even mentions anything at all like that, BP's stock goes through the floor. Well, that hurts the pensioners in England.

STU: And here, by the way. Widely held here, as well. So, thanks for that.

GLENN: You've got that going for us. And then with absolutely no sense of irony at all, they really think they're going to clean up these beaches, they're going to clean up this mess? Do you know how much money that's going to cost? Are you ready for this quote? Do you know how much money that's going to cost? Those are unfunded liabilities. We need a law to be passed to ensure that they will pay those unfunded liabilities because they don't have the money to pay for all of that.

PAT: I'm not getting the irony of that.

GLENN: You're not getting the irony?

PAT: No, huh uh, no.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

STU: The problem is there's a possibly that BP might pay. So, they don't understand that situation. There's a chance they actually could come through with the money.

GLENN: That's unbelievable. He's sending SWAT teams out, not meeting with their CEOs. I mean, Great Britain, we learned something here in America after the wall fell down, in Tanagra. I can't

PAT: I wonder how many people get that dorky Star Trek reference. Not many.

GLENN: I don't know. But wait. Later on I'm going to be talking to you about the lithium that they found in Afghanistan.

PAT: In Afghanistan.

GLENN: And how disappointed I was that it wasn't dilithium crystals, because we could have finally had those warp engines. I got up this morning and I heard you know. I'm just kind of waking up here, lithium. Did we find dilithium crystals in Afghanistan? I knew it! I knew it! Star Trek is real. But that's a different story.

PAT: Yeah. It turned out it wasn't dilithium.

GLENN: It was just lithium. So, good. We can make more batteries. Fantastic. Let's give it to the Chinese. I really think what we learned when the Berlin Wall fell and when we stopped having the Cold War is Russians were not afraid of us and we weren't afraid of them. We didn't want to kill them. They didn't want to kill us. The governments might have wanted to do that, but we didn't. The Palestinians, the Palestinians are no different than you and me. They just want to live and raise their children, but their government wants to kill people for power. Our government, Great Britain, Germany, who we're telling you to spend more money, you're the only people on the planet besides Zimbabwe that understands hyperinflation. You live through it and somehow or the other, you survived, barely, but you survived. You still have people walking around or being wheeled around that remember hyperinflation, remember what it led to, and we come over to you, the people who actually proposed the Versailles treaty, that started it all? We come back over to you and say, yeah, you've got to spend more money. I apologize. I'm sorry. I know the President has already apologized for the past American arrogance. I would like to apologize for his outrageous arrogance. You do what's right for your country. Spending money is a new America idea that is horrible and will lead to your destruction because it's going to lead to ours. Save yourself. England, it's not the American people that are doing this. We did not vote for somebody nobody represented this man as somebody who was going to pee all over the English. I mean, geez. You've got all of Europe those doing that to you. You don't need us, too. I apologize. It's outrageous Israel? We have no excuse. We have no excuse. But understand, those of us that didn't attend a church for 20 years that told us that the evil Jew was bad, those of us who paid attention when they found the reverend that talked about the evil Jew and we went, Hey, Hey, Hey, we should have listen to a guy on this evil Jew thing. That's a bad thing. Most Americans don't think of the evil Jew. We may not necessarily like all of your policies, we may think that you kind of screwed us here and there, but, do you know what? To each his own. We've done it to you. That's the way the world works, but we're not on the side of Hamas. We're not on the side of Iran. Some of us are beginning to believe maybe our leadership might be headed that direction. There seems to be oh, I don't know a wheelbarrow full of evidence but don't hold that against the American people. The American people I don't know if you've noticed, the American people are not being listened to either, by our own government.

STU: Sorry about that soccer tie, too, this weekend. I mean, the guy was

PAT: That I'm not sorry about.

STU: He should have had that save and we apologize for any short hops the ball may have taken.

GLENN: No. Do you know what? That's more insult. That's more insult. That's like going up to Canada and winning curling, kind of like, oh, can't you let us have curling? You guys don't even care. You hate it. I know, but we grabbed a broom and somehow or the other we beat you. That's American exceptionalism that our President denies.

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."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
