Glenn Beck: Why is West Wing covered?

GLENN: Have you seen that they have wrapped the West Wing in some sort of a tarp. Now, the way Drudge is reporting this is that nobody knows why they have wrapped the West Wing in tarp. Now, I don't know. Maybe they're I don't know, Stu. What do you think that could be going on there?

STU: Well, I mean, you have the possibility of a bug situation.

GLENN: That's what I think it is. However, Marcus Luttrell was over at my house last night and he said, no, you have to wrap the entire building, and the tarp doesn't go over the roof, and you have to wrap the whole thing. And if you are going to do the bug spray. Which, of course, would mean that the bees know. I mean... the bees... the bees clearly know.


The Bees Know


Exclusive new t-shirt from the Glenn Beck...

PAT: And they are trying to get rid of them. They are trying to silence the bees. Is that it?

GLENN: I don't know. They also could be beheading infidels--

PAT: At the White House? That seems unlikely to me.

GLENN: I know, but I

PAT: It seems unlikely.

GLENN: I'm going with the bug infestation myself, but it could be

STU: I'm pretty sure that that's not true, the infidel thing.

GLENN: You don't think they are beheading

STU: I'm going to go with 100% not true on that one.

GLENN: Really? 100%? You are 100% positive ?

STU: 100% sure, yeah.

GLENN: they didn't cover all the windows in the executive wing because they are not beheading infidels? 100%? Sure.

STU: Just like I'm 100% sure that the Constitution allows freedom of religion. I know I'm breaking news to everyone.

GLENN: That is crazy.

PAT: Well, you would have been, had the president not just said it.

GLENN: Right. That came as a shock to me on Friday.

PAT: That was stunning.

GLENN: I didn't

PAT: But then I looked it up and I'm like, he's right.

GLENN: You are that is incredible.

PAT: Look, it's not you don't have to dig very deep. It's right there in the First Amendment.

GLENN: That's why you were a constitutional professor.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: A professor of constitutional law.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Which I don't think is true. Yeah, check it out. I don't think it's true.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: I don't think he was a constitutional professor.

STU: Well, we heard him.

PAT: I think he was wasn't it that there was some technical thing there, that he was a constitutional lawyer, and that's not what he is.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It was professor or teacher or, I don't know.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, you know who knows. The bees. The bees know--

PAT: And that's why the tarp is up at the West Wing.

GLENN: They are hiding from the bees. They are trying to hide from the bees, or they are hiding the bees because the bees know and the bees were going to tell us.

PAT: Could they be killing bees?

GLENN: They might be. Could be a bee slaughterhouse. I don't know. What do you think of this one? Okay. So you are saying 100%.

STU: 100%.

PAT: I'm with Stu on that one.

STU: Thank you, Pat.

PAT: 100%.

GLENN: Is there a possibility

STU: No.

GLENN: That no, no, new scenario.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Is there a possibility that, like right out the window of the Oval Office, like a priest went shooting out of the window of the Oval Office and you just heard, "Get out, priest." -- "Get out, priest." You heard that?

STU: Again I'm at 100% that did not occur.

GLENN: Get out, priest. You don't think so?

STU: I feel like

PAT: I'm going to go 98% on that, probably not. 98% probably not.

GLENN: I'm out of options. Again I think they are just exterminating, you know, bugs in the White House because there seems to be a real fly problem at the White House, and

PAT: It's true. Crawling around his face during interviews.

GLENN: You can't have a president have flies land all over him.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Without somebody saying, what's up with the flies? But apparently they have an insect problem at the White House.

STU: Right.

PAT: They have got to stop leaving the doors and windows open. We do that and we get the same problem.

GLENN: Or they could stop having bullcrap come out of their mouths, which I hear attracts flies.

PAT: There is that.

STU: I do feel like it's being reported as, like, this mystery. Is it really a mystery?

GLENN: Well, it's not a mystery.

STU: Someone knows. It's probably, just they probably haven't had an answer to the question yet.

GLENN: Yeah. See, that's why I said, the way that Drudge is reporting it is, it's a mystery. Has anybody asked why the tarp is up there?

STU: I'm sure when we ask, someone that's not going to be something they are going to be hiding the cause of.

GLENN: I don't think so.

STU: I don't think so.

GLENN: If they do, then we might be concerned that one of the other two options may have happened.

PAT: Either the priest or the beheadings? Those are the other two options?

STU: Well, the bees.

GLENN: Well, and the bees.

PAT: Okay, the bees.

GLENN: I mean, because the bees, the bees know.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

STU: Have we checked the addresses of people who are buying "The bees know" T shirts? Do we know if the White House has ordered any?

GLENN: Wait a minute, what about this, what about this option?

STU: Are you just ignoring my "Bees know" T shirt idea?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Because I think it's possible.

GLENN: What about this option? What about, what if, like, the president had a meeting in the Oval Office and he invited the do nothing Republicans up and he said, let me make this clear wait a minute, before I do that, I've just got to go to the bathroom. And he left and they had installed those spiky things in the ceiling and it just kind of came down on all the do nothing Republicans and they're just having to mop up the mess?

STU: Like an Indiana Jones sort of thing?

GLENN: Kind of like that. Maybe a big rock came down and the president said, I've got to go. Because it is an oval. So maybe they got a big oval rock that just came out of the ceiling and just went... boof.

PAT: I'm going to go 99.6% no on that.

GLENN: Okay. I'm out of options. I don't know why then they have covered the West Wing in the tarp.

STU: I think still the bug infestation is probably the most likely.

PAT: Maybe they are doing remodeling, maybe that's a possibility.

GLENN: Are you going to, they might be scraping paint off the side of the White House? That's crazy.

PAT: I know, that's nuts.

GLENN: That's crazy.

PAT: That's nuts, yeah.

STU: That wouldn't be a mystery at all.

GLENN: Consider the big rock.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Okay? Just consider it for a while.

PAT: I have now and now I'm up to 99.7% no.

GLENN: But there is still

STU: Still a .3% chance.

GLENN: Still a shadow of a doubt.

STU: So you are telling me there's a chance.

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: I like that, that's possible, hey, anything's possible.

PAT: I mean, anything's possible.

GLENN: Hey, if I would have said we would be a socialist nation in 18 months after this president, which I did, how many would have believed me?

STU: I kind of believed you on that one actually.

GLENN: Did you?

STU: It does seem like we're going that way, doesn't it?

GLENN: Yeah hey, by the way, have you heard that we're now cloning cattle from dead animals? Does that sound like a good idea to anybody?

PAT: Ummm, no, I don't like the whole cloning thing at all.

GLENN: How about this, how about this.

PAT: Dead or alive.

GLENN: They put a tarp up because they're cloning dead cats and making them into vegetables?

STU: How would that process even work? It seems incredibly unlikely.

GLENN: CIA is involved. That's what they want you to think, that they can't do that. They want you to think they can't do that.

PAT: Oh, they are doing a good job because I don't think they can do that.

GLENN: Oh, please.

PAT: They are doing a really good job?

GLENN: Oh, please. You're part of it.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: You know? Obviously

PAT: I don't buy into the nine listen conspiracy, either. So I'm obviously a part of it. I work for the CIA.

GLENN: Are you telling me scientists can model weather, they can't get it right next week but they can model weather for the next 1,000 years and they can't turn dead cats into vegetables?

STU: (Laughing). You say it like that, it almost seems logical.

GLENN: (Laughing).

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
