Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. I am very impressed, in Phoenix with the hard working Americans who just want to be here.

PAT: Because they love the country.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: They are just looking for a better life for their families.

GLENN: Sure.

PAT: That's all they want.

GLENN: Sure. And I appreciate that it's the tea parties that are violent.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And they are the radicals. They are the radicals.

PAT: Yeah. Mean, hateful.

GLENN: Well, not exactly.

VOICE: There's a somewhat chaotic scene out in front of the Maricopa County jail in downtown Phoenix. We'll take live pictures from sky fox here. You can see it is a sizable crowd that has gathered, a Mexican flag out front and a lot of protestors holding up signs really expressing, you see them kind of chanting?

VOICE: But what I can tell you is that several protestors have been arrested at this time that I can tell. It seems that some more could be heading in that direction. What were expected to be peaceful protests today is turning in another direction.

GLENN: I wouldn't have seen that. I wouldn't have seen that coming. Now, what's really interesting is some of the protestors are members of SDS. That's

PAT: Some others are SEIU members.

GLENN: I'm sorry, what?


GLENN: Now wait a minute. SEIU, that's where Andy Stern was, right?

PAT: Yeah, it is.

GLENN: SEIU, the union SEIU. And wasn't Andy Stern, when he was in college, wasn't he in SDS?

PAT: A member of SDS? Yeah.

GLENN: A member of SDS. Hey, the Weather Underground, they came from SDS, didn't they?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And then ACORN came from SDS.

PAT: Sure did.

GLENN: Cloward and Piven came from SDS.


GLENN: That's weird and so

PAT: Now these people

GLENN: SEIU and SDS members were arrested.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: What are the odds?

PAT: Isn't that interesting.

GLENN: We should go to Vegas because we're just hitting incredible odds because that's definitely not orchestrated, nor is it something that we said would happen. No.

STU: You've got to take into account, though, that everybody knows a couple dozen people who are in SDS. Everybody---


PAT: We've seen that at live rallies lately where

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You've asked. And how many hands have gone up?

STU: Oh, it's just flooded with people.

PAT: I mean, in crowds of thousands of people, I'll bet three hands have gone up.

GLENN: May I just say with Bill O'Reilly, we were at Kansas City on Friday and I did a luncheon Friday. There were 1400 people there. And I asked, and nobody's hand went up. Then I went to Long Island.

PAT: That wasn't a diverse crowd, though.

GLENN: No, it wasn't.

PAT: Saturday night we had a diverse crowd.

GLENN: And I said, who is a member of SDS. And one hand went up. And it was a lady in the front row. And I joked with her and I said, from the New York Times? And she just shook her head. And I said, oh. You're from


GLENN: CBS? And she said no. I started walking I was making a comedic point and she said, CNN.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: She was from CNN. And I said, ah, okay.

STU: That's real?

PAT: Oh, yeah. That actually happened.

GLENN: And she hated me.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Hated me like poison.

STU: But she was there to cover the event?

GLENN: No. She was there because her husband is a fan and her husband wanted to see it and so it was his birthday --

PAT: That's a lot of love.

GLENN: That's a lot of love.

PAT: That's a lot of love.

GLENN: And she was poison darts coming my way like you wouldn't believe for the entire show.

PAT: Now, how did you know? How did you know the story behind that? How did you find that out?

GLENN: She said it. I asked her.

PAT: Okay. Right there on the stage?

GLENN: I asked her at the end. In the second half she was just still killing me with her eyes. And I am like, honestly, why are you here? I mean, was this a penalty of some sort? Did you go to some progressive judge where they are like, "Bad you! Voting for a conservative! You now have to go to the penalty box and see Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly." I said, how did this happen? And so she told me. Now, there's something else I asked, who has ever been for the violent overthrow of the United States government?

PAT: This was amazing.

GLENN: This was amazing. About four people raised their hand in Long Island.

STU: That's a lot for that question. And there was none in Kansas City?

GLENN: They were together no, there was none in Kansas City. They were together and they were hostile hippies.

PAT: I don't know why they were there.

GLENN: I don't know why they were there. They weren't there by the second half. I think they were there just maybe to disrupt because they were very disruptive. The second half I brought them a plate of warm cookies and they were gone and I was kind of disappointed because I had the kitchen backstage make these warm cookies for the hippies. I figure, I know the way I can get to hippies. I can talk to hippies.

PAT: By the second half, they got the munchies.

GLENN: They are all stoned. Just bring them hot cookies and they will be fine. They are like, hey, I'm for capitalism, rah, rah.

PAT: Doritos, dude?

GLENN: Yeah, that's the way it works. But you ask yourself, how many people, how many people do you know have called for the violent overthrow of the United States government? How many people do you know have blown up the Pentagon, wanted to kill police officers, call them pigs? How many people do you know are members of SDS? How many people do you know were members of the Weather Underground? How many members or how many people do you know are avowed communists? Avowed revolutionaries? How many people do you know? This White House has tons of them. It's time to wake up and see what is coming, and what is coming is what was happening there in Arizona. And I want to address that because violence is coming, but the left will blame it on me, as they already are today and my German ancestors, I love that one. It's important that you understand what they are doing and why they are doing it.

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.

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."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
