GLENN: But anyway, if you are watching on Insider Extreme, you'll see the blackboard behind me because I'm getting ready for the TV show tonight. And put this together. It's, I don't know what you call it. It's a small world, or, Crime, Inc.? Or, you know, a blackboard. But what it is is it is a — it's the circle of the BP oil scam and cap and trade. By the way, cap and trade will be the largest, the largest tax increase in American history. It is going to tax beyond your wildest imagination. Now according to Politico, Rahm Emanuel says that Obama wants reduced emissions and so he's pushing for reduced carbon emissions. I got news for ya. We're not going to have any carbon emissions because we're not going to have any money left over. What is really going on with the oil? Tonight a full hour explaining all of this. But let me give it to you real quick. It starts with George Soros. Once you know George Soros, you really don't need to go much further. George Soros is the guy who started Center For American Progress. Center For American Progress is the group funded by George Soros that selected John Podesta, and John Podesta selected the White House team.

Stu, what was the, what was the memo that came out? Remember this memo that came out from Center For American Progress? It was the White House? They said ask somebody at the Center For American Progress?

STU: Yeah, this is — yeah. You are talking about the green jobs thing.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: There was a study that came out from Spain that actually looked at what happened when they tried to do the green jobs program and found that 2.2 regular jobs were lost for every green job that was created.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And each job that was created was created at more than $700,000 of subsidizing. So it was a disaster for them. It made their policies look horrible. So what they did to try to come up with a defense is they were circulating all these memos and trying to coordinate the response with not only the Center For American Progress, which they wanted their approval for it and what did they think about it, but also the wind lobby, going directly to the people selling you the wind turbines.

GLENN: Unbelievable. All right. So Center For American Progress, John Podesta picks the White House team. This is where Van Jones went back, to Center For American Progress.

In a completely unrelated story, Soros has purchased $900 million of Petrobras. That's P E T R O B R A S, Petrobras. Then we have the BP oil spill as the next stop on this circle of life. Tony Podesta is the PR person for BP oil.

PAT: Why does that name sound familiar? Tony Podesta.

GLENN: John Podesta's brother.

PAT: Oh weird.

GLENN: At Center for isn't that weird.

PAT: That's weird. It is a small world.

GLENN: So the Center For American Progress, now according to the Wall Street Journal, is the one making the policy for this cap and trade and this oil spill. They are the ones that have come out on one day and say you — the White House needs to do this. Two days later, the White House does it. Next day, White House needs to do this. Few days later, the White House does it. And the White House — the Wall Street Journal just did an article on this last week and said, look who's controlling the oil policy. But they left it at that.

One of the policies that they recommended is that we suspend drilling. And they said that not only do we need to suspend deepwater drilling but all drilling. Guess what the White House comes out with? Now, this is going to cost us in six months, it will cost us $2 billion. How many dollars a day are we losing on this?

STU: Up to $330 million a month I believe it is.

GLENN: There are, already three — sorry, 35 oil rigs out there that the equipment now is sitting idle and there are bids from other countries on those oil rigs. They are not going to sit there idle. They are going to be leased to somebody. The oil industry is saying, guys, this is going to kill us. Listen to that. The oil industry is saying, this is going to kill us to suspend all drilling. Why? Because the oil rigs are not going to — they are not going to be there. They are going to be — they are going to be leased some place else. Also, the most dangerous time to an oil rig is when you are shutting it down. That's the danger point. So we're going to shut down all oil rigs in the water, lose all that money and then lose possibly a lot of the oil rigs. We won't get them back. That was a suggestion from the Center For American Progress. Obama said we have to do that because 1500 meters of water is too deep to drill in.

In a completely unrelated story, Petrobras has announced that they are going to do deepwater drilling at 2,777 meters, almost twice the distance under the surface of the water as Deep Horizons in the Gulf of Mexico. Why did you hear Petrobras? Oh, yeah, that's right. It's over on the other side of the blackboard. George Soros has $900 million in Petrobras stock. It is his number one investment. Remember, he's the guy who started Center For American Progress that is currently making the policy. Obama suspends drilling because 1500 feet is too dangerous. Petrobras says that they are going to make a — they are going to drill for oil at 2700 feet, and Obama decides to make a loan for $2 billion to Petrobras for this particular drill site.

Now, why would we give up our drilling equipment? Why would we say it's too dangerous in 1500 meters and then make a $2 billion loan to Petrobras, $2 billion so they can drill 2777 meters, almost twice the distance. Well, it's good news if you are a shareholder for Petrobras because now you can go and drill. You have the equipment, you have the money and you have the backing of the United oh, wait a minute. That's right. George Soros, his major investment is in... Petrobras. It is Crime, Inc. The circle of corruption. I have so much more on this we're readying for you for 5:00 today. You need to see it. It's one of these shows that you are going to need to videotape because it's going to take me an hour to go through all of this and show you all of the connections. It is, what —

STU: No, I have a DVR. Am I allowed to do that or do I have to videotape it?

GLENN: What did I say? I'm sorry.

STU: My VHS is down in the basement. I haven't had it hooked up for several years.

GLENN: What you need to do is you need to get a kinescope.

PAT: Really? Would that be better than like the DVR?

GLENN: Kinescope, you'd be set.

PAT: It seems complicated.

STU: I have my 8 millimeter now hooked up to my TV.

PAT: Those are handy.

STU: Be very nice.

PAT: Those are handy.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

PAT: Then what you can do is listen to the audio on your 8 track in your car.

GLENN: Ooh, that is a good deal.

PAT: It's awesome. I love that sound it makes when it goes to a different track.

STU: I remember those. They were far more advanced than cassettes.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

STU: They were the CD of tapes.

PAT: They were. They were.

GLENN: The CD of tapes? All right. So anyway, get your DVR and your Walkman out and make sure you join me tonight at 5:00.

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.
