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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
