Glenn Beck: Media countdown to Chelsea's wedding

GLENN: Quiet, quiet, quiet. ABC is right now running final wedding countdown: Inside Chelsea Clinton's big day.

PAT: 3, 2, 1...

GLENN: Does the ball come down at the end?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: This is going to be so great.

PAT: It's tomorrow, isn't it?

GLENN: I don't ‑‑

PAT: I think it's tomorrow.

GLENN: I don't want to say. I don't want to say. I would say I don't know but I want to ‑‑ that would sound ridiculously uninformed. I want to just say, I don't want to say.

PAT: All right.

STU: I think it is tomorrow.

GLENN: Shhh. Don't release that information.

STU: I'm just saying I think it is.

GLENN: $3.2 million. Now, they say that that might be because of security. That's the spin on it: Well, it's security.

PAT: I heard $200,000 of it was security.

GLENN: Uh‑huh. And how much of that was being paid for by the taxpayers?

PAT: I think all of it.

GLENN: Oh, okay. All right. So you have that. I don't think that's the big ‑‑ I don't think, when you have $500,000 in flowers, I don't think security is the big piece. The wedding cake is $11,000.

PAT: How much ‑‑

GLENN: Which again, if you want to spend that on a wedding cake ‑‑

PAT: That's great.

GLENN: I am all for it.

PAT: Just don't preach to me that nobody's doing enough, the rich don't do enough in any country, that there's got to be redistribution of wealth. What was it Bill Clinton said just recently about wealth?

GLENN: I was at the Time, I was at the Time 100 thing and he spoke and I was vomiting in the back, but he was speaking and he said that our lifestyle is becoming grotesque and it is unsustainable.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

GLENN: I don't think that ‑‑

PAT: Our lifestyle is grotesque and then you spend $3.2 million on somebody's wedding, your daughter.

GLENN: You can do that!

PAT: That's great, but don't preach to us.

GLENN: How much are they worth? About $100, 150 million if I have one child and it's my daughter and I've got ‑‑

PAT: I still wouldn't spend $3.2.

GLENN: I don't think I would, either, but I can see, I could see that maybe ‑‑

PAT: Well, you know what W spent on Laura's wedding, his daughter Laura?

GLENN: Oh, it was out of control, out of control.

PAT: Out of control. It was silly, it was ridiculous, these rich people.

GLENN: You remember at the time how they reported it, too.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: They reported it as rich, opulent.

PAT: Opulent.

GLENN: Opulent, blah, blah‑blah.

PAT: Ostentatious. $100,000. $100,000. I mean, you know, that's a lot of money, but ‑‑

GLENN: $3.2.

PAT: And the thing was George W. Bush was never preaching to us, don't be spending money; the rich have too much.

GLENN: And look at this. Look at this. Good Morning America is actually, is actually ‑‑ oh, no, they're at Central Park. Okay, I thought they were actually broadcasting from the Clinton ‑‑

STU: They are tomorrow.

GLENN: Are they?

STU: I don't know if it's that show but I know CBS will be broadcasting live from Rhinebeck, New York, the newscast will feature a piece examining the interest in presidential children and commentary from historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. Isn't that delightful?

PAT: Doris Kearns Goodwin? Anybody with three names you know is much smarter than the rest of us.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
