Glenn Beck: Rawls vs. Greene

GLENN: So, we're looking at -- who is it? Al Greene that's running in --

STU: Alvin Greene.

PAT: Alvin Greene.

GLENN: Oh. Not the singer?

STU: No.

PAT: No. See, that's the mistake that apparently a lot of people are making.

GLENN: All right. So, tell this story here.

PAT: One of the local TV stations went out and interviewed some people because everybody's confused about this Alvin Greene guy. He's a person who -- am I keeping you awake?

GLENN: Yeah, you are. Can you tell the story a little more exciting than this?

PAT: Should I be quiet and let you get a little nappy?

GLENN: No. So far, the way you're telling it --

PAT: I got five words out of my mouth, you know.

GLENN: Go ahead. I'm just trying to do to you what you bring to the table for me every single day.

PAT: You have no idea what I bring to the table.

GLENN: No. Neither do the listeners, but, anyway, go ahead.

PAT: Oh, they know, my friend. So, anyway, Alvin Greene had no campaign. He literally did not one official fund racer. He didn't do one official event. There was no media, there were no advertisements. He spent no money. $10,000 to register, sign up, or whatever.

GLENN: And isn't he a criminal?

PAT: Well, he's charged with -- he's got a porn charge on his record and --

GLENN: What's a porn charge?

STU: He showed porn to an unwilling participant and asked her back to the apartment.

PAT: You know, but who among us --

STU: But who among us haven't --

GLENN: An unwilling participant? What kind of a great move that is. Let me tie you to the chair. Let's watch porn and then we can go back to my place?

STU: There was no tieing. He just asked nicely, I'm sure. He seemed like quite a gentleman.

PAT: He seems like a very confused, nice guy, and so now the media --

GLENN: Where did he get $10,000 to --

PAT: Nobody knows. He said it was his and --

GLENN: A guy who --

PAT: Life savings.

GLENN: -- offered an evening of porn --

STU: We don't know it was the whole evening.

GLENN: A few minutes of porn.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Is usually not the guy who's got, like, $10,000 lying around.

STU: That's a broad generalization and I would say --

GLENN: But it is my experience that guys like this, to quote the President -- go ahead.

PAT: So, James Clyburn, the powers that be in South Carolina are all hacked off because this guy has no chance of beating Dement. It's not like the other guy had any chance.


PAT: So, anyway, the TV station went out and they interviewed at least one of these people to find out, why did you vote for Alvin Greene and here's what one of them said.

VOICE: I voted for him because his name sounded like the singer and I had never heard of Vic Rawl.

PAT: His name sounded like the singer, Al Green from the Seventies, and she had never heard of Vic Rawl.

GLENN: Is it Lou Rawls?

PAT: That's another singer.

GLENN: That's a tough contest. Al Green -- not for me. It's Al Green over Lou Rawls.

PAT: Oh, you've to be kidding.


GLENN: No. Yeah. It's Al Green over Lou Rawls.

PAT: Oh, no. It's Lou Rawls over Al Green every time.


PAT: Every day.

GLENN: Give me a little Al Green.

PAT: This is Al Green. (Music playing.)

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, I want this guy in Congress. This guy -- can you tell me -- don't you want somebody who's walking up to the podium -- you'll be, like, all right, $130 trillion debt, whatever. Over Lou Rawls?

PAT: Lou Rawls. (Music playing.) Now, this is smooth. This --

GLENN: This is you trapped in your house with your mother's radio.

PAT: What?

GLENN: That's what it is.

PAT: My mother would never have listened to Lou Rawls. She was a --

GLENN: She's that unhip?

PAT: Yeah. She was an Eddie Arnold, Jim Reeves type of chick.

GLENN: Whoa, whoa!

PAT: Yeah. So --

GLENN: How did they even let you in through the tunnel of New York?

PAT: I don't know. I don't know.

GLENN: Wow. No. I mean, Lou Rawls isn't bad. I'm saying if I had to vote, I would be, like --

PAT: You would go Al Green?

GLENN: Yeah. Of course I would.

PAT: So, you understand how this guy got elected?

STU: After that evidence, I think I would go Al Green, too.

PAT: Seriously? Sarah, Al Green or Lou Rawls?

SARAH: No contest, Al Green.

GLENN: You grew up in some type of prison-like atmosphere where Lou Rawls turned out -- I mean, Lou Rawls was good and Al Green turned out to be bad. You're a psycho. You're a danger to society and yourself.

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

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.
