GLENN: We have some amazing things to go over. You are terrifying this administration. This audience is the most, it is water to the Wicked Witch of the West. They are terrified of you. We have monitored this Netroots meeting that the president spoke at, that Rachel Maddow spoke at, that Ed Schultz spoke at, that every single I mean, they say that the tea parties are organized by Fox. It couldn't be further from the truth. And here we have Maddow and Schultz and everybody else speaking at the progressive convention and nobody says a word.

PAT: Yeah. And Pelosi? I mean, they are politicians.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: Everybody's there.

GLENN: Now, they are terrified, and not in the way that not that you are carrying a gun or they are afraid you are going to blow up anything. They know that you stand in their way, period. That's all it is. They know. The president had to come out and apologize to them and say, hey, look, I know that you don't think we got a lot done, but we did. We got a lot done. You just have to hold on just a little bit. Van Jones said the same thing. They have to convince their own people that this administration has accomplished something because they thought that this was going to be an open highway. They thought we would already, I don't know what, be communist by now? That we would have you know, that the president would have been able to destroy absolutely America, everything America is?

PAT: Yeah. This was a chilling statement when he said this.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Change hasn't come fast enough for too many Americans. I know that. It hasn't come fast enough for me, either. And I know it hasn't come fast enough for many of you who fought so hard during the election. The fact is it took years to get here. It will take time to get us out.

PAT: Yes. It's 1776, it took us to get here, and he's trying to dismantle that in one year.

GLENN: Do you have the Rachel Maddow speech by any chance? Rachel Maddow said I think this is incredible. Rachel Maddow, she introduced the president. He did a video and she introduced the video. And she said she's had to report the news of each of his accomplishments in office from healthcare to hate crimes to student loans. Quote: The last time any president did this much in office, booze was illegal. Who was that president Rachel Maddow was talking about? Is that incredible?

PAT: Was it James K. Polk?

GLENN: No, it wasn't.

PAT: No?

GLENN: It was incredible.

STU: Who was it? Was it Garfield?

GLENN: Don't make me say his name.

STU: No, who was it?

PAT: William Harry Henry Harrison?

GLENN: The name that shall not be mentioned.

STU: I don't know who you are talking about. You need to inform the people.

GLENN: Woodrow Wilson!

PAT: Who?

GLENN: Isn't it amazing, isn't it amazing that two or three years ago on this program when I first found Woodrow Wilson on this program and said, oh, my gosh! Look at how evil this guy is! And everybody do you remember? I mean, people still do it: "Glenn Beck is obsessed with Woodrow Wilson." Isn't it incredible that this is the guy they've modeled themselves after? This is the guy! Out of all the presidents that everybody knew nothing about.

By the way, a listener sent me or brought to the, what do you call it, the American Revival a big picture, a framed newspaper: Woodrow Wilson is dead. I have that hanging over my desk in my office. I love it. It's quite possibly the best gift ever given. I love it.

So I want to go over some of the things that they said at this, at this meeting over the weekend because it is important that you understand who you are to them. They laid out a detailed plan of coming after you, not only me but you. I am just, I'm just the guy who everybody gets together around, but I'm not the one they are afraid of. They are afraid of you, and it's fascinating to me. For the first time they actually admitted what they have done and they talked about how, you know, they have boycotted my sponsors not because they are trying to get me off the air but they are trying to discredit me by only leaving me with little sponsors that no one has ever heard of. Those sponsors that are left, they talk about going after them. That's what I've told you this is what's happening with Goldline. And by the way, thank you. Thank you for Goldline called me and said, these guys are so stupid. Our business has actually increased. I said, you know, our audience isn't dumb. You know, they just know. Anybody who is standing by, they may not agree with everything that I say but they understand America and they also understand that this audience, you know, full of consumers.

But they talked about one other thing in their speeches this weekend and it is this: That they must come after you. They haven't been able to find a way to destroy me yet, and they're doing it. According to this we'll play the audio for you. They are just going to continue to come after me. Now they are using what they call the evangelicals. They said they almost had me, they thought, with Jim Wallis. Really? Did you? I haven't even begun to fight on that one. They thought that we they almost had us with Jim Wallis and there's a plan, and they outline the plan and how they are going to use the churches and how they are going to use the evangelicals against me. I understand that. I got it. You should know that. Because the other thing that they are going to do is they said they are going to start looking into the makeup of the audience. They are going to start reading the things that people say about being a Glenn Beck fan and they are going to start following those people and looking about what they write online and what groups they are affiliated with because Glenn Beck has got to have some bad people in his audience and we'll discredit him even more with the audience now.

So just know that you now and I told you this, what, three months ago, four months ago? And I was overwhelmed by the response of this audience. But I want to give you that loophole just as I said to Goldline three weeks ago, and I told them four months ago, and I told them eight months ago: Look, if the heat becomes too hot in the kitchen, I understand. No hard feelings. And I say that to you. It may be in your best interest to not visibly stand by me because they are going to come after. And I want you to understand that this movement is not about me. It never has been about me. It's an insult it's an insult to America to make it about me or the president or anything else. This is about universal principles. This is about nature's god and nature's laws. And so if they take me down, you have to be standing. And if they take you down, somebody else has to be standing. We need to really view ourselves as nonarmed, nonviolent cells. Because they really think that if they can take me down, it's over. But it's not. You'll never sit down. I know you. You are exactly like me. You'll never sit down. If they take me off the air, if they take me off radio or television and, mark my words, they will, I'm coming to your house. I'm coming to your park. I'm coming to your church. I'll come to your school. I'll come to your car. I'll come where anybody will come and listen. If I'm just mowing my lawn and you drive by my house and I'm completely unemployed and you drive by and your window's open, you'll hear me preaching it.

I didn't stumble onto George Whitefield without a little divine providence. Understand there is a difference between divine providence and manifest destiny. Manifest destiny is a perversion of divine providence. It is what they're using against this country with all minorities because after our founders died, it went from divine providence, it went from a group of guys saying, oh, my gosh, we're just standing up for what we believe is right, what we believe are the laws of nature and nature's god, we're just standing up for those things and look at His finger all the way along. We would have never been able to pull this off if it hadn't been for God helping us. That's divine providence. Manifest destiny is, "Get out of my way. I'm on a mission from God." I'm not on a mission from God, nor is this country. We are just standing up because it's right. We find ourselves experiencing divine providence because we're standing with nature's god and nature's laws. They cannot be undone. So humbly travel together. Humbly we shall not fail.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
