GLENN: Now let me expose one other thing, and this came from — what was the Catholic paper that came out? And Catholics and really all religions have a split in them. There are those that understand the gospel prior to the perversion of the early 20th century and those who have fully embraced the perversion of the gospel, and that perversion is social justice in the way it is described by Jeremiah Wright as the government should do all of these things. You can't find the words "Social justice" in the gospel. You can't find it in the Bible. What you can find is you personally give up everything and serve. You help. Nowhere does it say create a giant government and have it reign on Earth and they will decide. That takes away your freedom of choice. Here is the latest from the president. Now, this came out from a Catholic source. I'm trying to remember.

PAT: I think it was Catholic Online.

GLENN: Catholic Online? I don't know anything about it, but they have this one absolutely right, absolutely right. And Robbie George, who is a professor at Princeton University, he is one of the most ethical, one of the most decent, one of the most God fearing men and he is a Catholic, not really a theologian. What would you call him? He's one of the leading authorities in the Catholic church for advice, and he is amazing, and he gets it.

This is what the president said in Cairo and he is now choosing to say this all the time. There is freedom of religion as exposed — or as talked about in our founding documents, freedom of religion. But listen to what the president says.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: These freedoms of expression and worship, of access to information and political participation —

GLENN: Okay, stop. A freedom of worship. Not of religion. You may think that this is a very small point... until you hear — give me seven minutes. In seven minutes you will understand why he chose those words and why he's continuing to choose those words. Freedom of worship. And if the pressure becomes too great on this guy, he will change his language, but we have never had a president that kept talking about freedom of worship, freedom of worship, freedom of worship. It's always freedom of religion. Why? I'll explain in a second and, boy, do a few pieces fall into place.

GLENN: Freedom of worship. Do not confuse the freedom of religion with the freedom of worship. Barack Obama has said in his Cairo speech freedom of worship, and he has been taking to the use of that phrase over freedom of religion. There is a huge difference. Freedom of religion is what we have here, but let me show you Article 124 from the USSR Constitution, Soviet. In order to remember how free the Soviet Union was, right? We know how, "Oh, Christians, do anything you want to. Jews, Jews, they love you!" Article 124: In order to ensure citizens freedom of conscience, the church in the USSR is separated from the state. Separation of church and state. And the school from the church. So the church and the state are separate and the school from the church, article 124. Now, we don't have that in any of our documents, but it's weird how the progressives insist that there is a separation of church and state, exactly the way there was in the Soviet Union, and a separation of God in all of our schools, just like there was in the Soviet Union. Freedom of religious worship and freedom of antireligious propaganda is recognized for all citizens. So in other words, freedom of worship, you can worship any way you want. You want to worship? Go worship. Now, wait, wait, wait, wait. You are going to talk to other people about that? No, that's religious propaganda. You can worship anything you want. Wait, wait, wait, wait. What does your Bible say? Wait a minute, wait a minute, your preacher says what? You can worship any way you want, but that doesn't give you a right to talk about it. That doesn't give you a right to preach about it. That doesn't give you a right to propaganda. And that's what it is. The preacher is just up doing propaganda. What do they accuse me of? Propaganda.

So you can worship all you want, but I'm sorry, you can't print that and hand that out. But if you are antireligious, you'll notice that it's freedom of worship and freedom of anti religious propaganda. Ah. That means you can speak out against it, but you really don't have a right to speak out for it.

There is a full, head on, frontal attack on religion, on the gospel. You must not be afraid. You must stand your ground. You must also be as Christ like as possible. They are going to paint — remember you've got Rosie O'Donnell and everybody else: These Christians are just as dangerous as Al Qaeda. Remember they believe that. They don't believe that president Ahmadinejad is dangerous but they do believe, oh, they do believe that Christians are dangerous. They believe it. We live in — we are dealing with a different mentally. We are dealing with people that have grown up believing the Weather Underground was right. We are being ruled now, and those are the right words, we are being ruled by a group of people who have contempt for our Constitution, for religion, unless it is the religion of social justice, collective salvation, and the right to worship. They will say that we're hate mongers and bigots. They always, always do. "They are hate mongers, they're bigots. Freedom of speech! Freedom of speech!" Yet, they shout those things while trying to get you to shut up. They will shout freedom of speech and freedom of censorship to try to get you to shut up. Pay no attention to this. Do not become an enemy of theirs. You become a warrior for the Lord, and I can't believe I live in a time in this country where I have to say, and I don't mean a gun or a weapon, a spiritual warrior for the Lord. You are to stand with him. In the understanding that you have there must be a connection between people of faith. We've got to stop saying, I've got to baptize you and you've got to baptize me and we've got to stop, we've got to stop you dead in your tracks. No. The truth shall set you free and the Lord will sort it all out and the Lord will work miracles in our day. We must stand together. We are going to disagree with each other on theology. We're going to have debates. We're going to go back and forth and we're going to have that, but we must love each other and stand together and recognize our differences. And don't protect turf. We each preserve what we believe. I'm not saying that we melt into each other. What I'm saying is, E Pluribus Unum: From many one. Stand together. Our differences only make us stronger, and there are going to be things that we just disagree with each other so hard on that our heads are going to spin. But we must stand together. United we stand. Divided we fall.

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:
