GLENN: Now, here's the amazing audio from The Blaze. Look for it I'm sorry, I was going to say Look for it at It is the lead story: Key Obama ally works with socialist for global tax. Who is the ally? None other than Richard Trumka, AFL CIO. I'm begging union workers, I'm begging you. Nobody I've worked with a lot of union people. I've never had a problem with union people, never. I mean, once in a while but, you know, everybody has a jerk in their office. You know what I mean? I don't have yes, Jeffy. Jeffy looks up. You're our jerk. So if we get a jerk union member, I'm going to send you to go talk to them. Everybody else you know, I have good relations with the people who are workers. My problem is the corrupt unions themselves. And they're beyond corrupt. These guys are socialist or communist, some of them. They're, you know, practically Weather Underground revolutionaries some of them. Andy Stern, he's SDS guy.

So who is Richard Trumka? Well, I'm going to have the spooky German or Austrian guy over in Europe introduce Richard Trumka. This is video on that you need to see, union members. Look at who is leading your organization. Do they reflect your values?

PAT: This is clear back in March 16th.

VOICE: So welcome Richard Trumka to Washington. I'm very proud, always very proud and very satisfied to have Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, our president, your president of the Party of European Socialists.

GLENN: Okay. Hold on just a second. So the spooky, well, we can take care of those problems, ya, ya? We have a solution for just about everything, ya? The spooky, the spooky guy that, if it was an episode of 24 in the end would turn around his pinky ring and it would have the Nazi symbol on it, he is

PAT: Yeah, but he would be from Idaho.

GLENN: He would. Working for an oil company.

PAT: So as not to offend anybody.

GLENN: Yes, you are right. He would be an Idahoan.

PAT: Idahoan.

GLENN: Idahoan that is also working for big oil, and a Nazi. But that's a different story.

So here he is introducing, and he says here's Richard Trumka from America, and he's now with the head of the European Socialists in Europe.

VOICE: And the co chair of the global progressive forum. Both have really worked tirelessly for progressive causes and now we are they are concentrating and we are concentrating how to achieve really this financial transaction text.

PAT: Oh.

VOICE: The AFL CIO has been working with Americans For Financial Reform. Now, we're very pleased that Paul has organized Europeans for financial reform which shares common principles with Americans For Financial Reform, including regulate speculative funds such as hedge funds and private equity funds, create a financial speculation tax or a financial transaction tax or a Robinhood tax, however you wish to refer to it.

VOICE: This is one of the most progressive people in the United States of America. I'm so proud to be declaring myself and defining myself as one of your friends.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It is good to spend my birthday with

PAT: Here's Obama spending time with his friend.

VOICE: And I want to devote to you, on behalf of all these progressives here, Richard, a decisiveness for change. Which means, of course, that this financial transaction tax is a very, very important one for us. It's not only about money. It's about ensuring our future, a better future than the one we have.

VOICE: I would say that I totally agree with you that it is possible for us to get a financial tax around the world.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: Totally possible for us to get a financial tax around the world. I don't know how that's possible when it's unconstitutional. How would you, how would you do that?

GLENN: I would just fold it into our financial regulation bill that nobody read.

PAT: Is that all you'd do?

GLENN: That's all I'd do.

PAT: So you wouldn't pass a new law.

GLENN: That's all I'd do. I would just call myself a progressive instead of a socialist because

PAT: I see.

GLENN: That way people don't really know what I'm doing. And I would try to, you know, try to keep the videotape of me at a minimum where I am talking to spooky German or Austrian dudes who are indeed socialists and they all say things like they are very happy and we just want this all to come together as one world. You know what I'm saying? Ya? And then they smoke that little strange little cigarette? I think we all know what they are saying. Okay. Night night now.

PAT: That's how you would do it?

GLENN: That's how I would do it.

PAT: Why wouldn't you just come out and tell the American people what your goal and your aim and your

GLENN: Well, because

PAT: Your end result would be?

GLENN: Because I don't think it makes a good, I don't think it makes a good movie. Someday when the movie is being told.

PAT: Okay. So it's not to deceive anybody? It's just for the movie rates that are sold later?

GLENN: No, it's for the movie rights because you really want to have the spooky, "Yeah, we've done these things before in Europe. We like big government, yeah, they always work out well." You know, you want to have that kind of a, that kind of a scene.

PAT: I agree. That adds spookiness.

GLENN: Or, or it could be not about the movie. It could be just that they know that Americans and their own union members would reject. I'd like to the AFL CIO, union members, AFL CIO, how are you feeling about Richard Trumka hanging out with spooky European socialist dude smoking cigarettes? Yeah? And talking about a global tax for global socialism? I know, I know. I know so many great union members that are so un American, you know? They usually are. They are not the guys with the hard hats, and the American flag on them. No, no, no. These guys are more of a new world order kind of class of people. And I'm sure the union members see Trumka there next to global socialists talking about a new world order and they say, "Ya, ya, Fritz, you forgot your hard hat, ya?"

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.


I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
