GLENN: California, can I ask you a question? How do you keep electing Pete Stark? I mean, we're just — we just found some audio that's from 2009 where he says —

PAT: Or potentially be 4. I don't know. His hair is so dark in this. I don't think it could be just a year ago.

GLENN: It's called dye.

PAT: Maybe. It's possible.

GLENN: I was told by somebody on the staff that it was 2009. Maybe — doesn't matter. He's talking about the — he's talking about the budget and he says, the more money you borrow, the richer you are. That doesn't even make any sense.

PAT: Yeah, I guess.

GLENN: The more money — no, the more money you borrow —

PAT: The more money you owe.

GLENN: The more money you owe, the more in debt you are. But he is just a nasty, nasty guy. This is the guy who was on the border just, you know, saying about, you know, the minutemen, they just want to kill people, et cetera, et cetera. That was last week. Listen to this. Can you play this audio? Has it been cleaned enough?

PAT: I can play —

GLENN: Part of it?

PAT: I can play part of it.

GLENN: Play what you can.

PAT: First the part that you were talking about.

STARK: Is the national debt measures the wealth, well, the wealthier we are. The national debt, it's an indication of wealth of the country, you are right.

VOICE: So the more you owe, the more you are worth?

STARK: In federal account — in national scheme of things, that's quite right.

PAT: The more you owe, the bigger your debt, the wealthier you are. What? Wow.

GLENN: Well, I guess you could look at it this way and you could say, well, that's true if, you know — for instance, I'm not going out and getting a billion dollar loan, but Microsoft could. So the more you owe, the more people will give you, the wealthier you are.

PAT: I guess. But in his —

GLENN: That's a ridiculous way to look at it.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: I guess that's — you know.

STU: You have more access to money when you have money.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: That's completely different than what he's saying.

GLENN: I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

STU: I can see that and it's a stretch and you are doing quite well with the gymnastics there.

PAT: Bless your heart for trying.

STU: Yeah, very nice, good job, good job.

PAT: But Jan, this interviewer, Jan Helfeld pushes him a little bit and Stark doesn't like it.

HELFELD: Hasn't the amount of interest that we've had to pay increased tremendously in the last five years?

STARK: As a percentage of what?

HELFELD: As a percentage of the federal budget?

STARK: No. As a percentage of gross domestic product? Constant dollars? Come on.

HELFELD: As a percentage of the federal budget.

STARK: Don't you ever study economics?

HELFELD: A little bit.

STARK: Where?

HELFELD: In University of Puerto Rico.

STARK: University of Puerto Rico? Do you have a doctorate in economics?

HELFELD: No, I don't.

STARK: Master's degree?

HELFELD: No, I don't.

STARK: How many classes did you take?

HELFELD: Answer the question.

STARK: What I would suggest is that you — they are simple minded questions that don't relate to the realities —

HELFELD: What about to the viewers who don't have a doctorate in economic —

STARK: If you'd shut up for a minute. Why don't you explain to your viewers. You are blabbing away here about something you don't know anything about.

HELFELD: I'm only asking a question.

STARK: No, no. No, no.

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. Stop. Listen to him. This is the same thing he is saying to the border: You don't know anything about it; if you knew anything about it. These people — I lost my mind with Pete Stark last week on television. This guy is King George. This guy is absolutely King George. He's right, you're all stupid, you're a subject, shut your mouth.

Now, he goes —

PAT: Now, does he have a doctorate in economics?

GLENN: No, he doesn't.

PAT: Because —

GLENN: He does have — I looked it up here. Hang on just a second. He does have a degree — hang on just a second — a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering.

PAT: Well, that doesn't seem to be what he was —

GLENN: Well, if you'd shut up a minute.

PAT: Okay. Sorry.

GLENN: If you'd just shut, you are going object babbling.

PAT: I'm just trying to tell our listener, I was just trying to inform our listeners that he doesn't have —

GLENN: If you'd just shut up a minute.

PAT: I was just trying to inform the listeners.

STU: By the way, if you go to debt to GDP, the richest country in the world is... Zimbabwe.

GLENN: Yeah, move there.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
