Glenn's sex tape scandal?

Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: So I got an e mail that says, have you seen the cover of The Globe magazine, and I said, no, I haven't, I haven't received my copy of this week's Globe yet.

PAT: Oh, the Dolly's in love with this woman and then there's a photo of her?

GLENN: Yeah, reveal sizzling secrets about the redhead she sleeps with. No, that's not it.

PAT: Yikes.

GLENN: Dancing With the Stars, secrets and scandals, that's not it. Sandra Bullock's father with a wife beater?

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: With those. America's Got Talent, cheating bombshell? Is this little girl's voice fake? Uh oh.

PAT: What? Oh, boy.

STU: Uh oh.

GLENN: It wasn't those. It was this. Glenn Beck sex tape scandal and the mystery woman behind it.

STU: Uh oh.

PAT: Oh, boy. I just vomited in my mouth.

GLENN: Now, I thank you.

PAT: Just threw up in my mouth.

GLENN: I would like to tell The Globe if you think you are going to sell magazines, that ain't it, man, that is not the story.

PAT: Apparently they have never seen the Fox TV show that features you every night.

GLENN: I would just be vomiting. I'd be like... I would never buy that. Never buy that.

STU: No.

GLENN: Okay. So it has got a really bad picture of me and it's a sex tape scandal and the mystery woman behind it. Now, when I first got an e mail on this, I'm like, you've got to be kidding me. I mean, how did that tape get out?

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: But they have it, right? They do have the tape?

GLENN: No. Apparently and I have not read the story but apparently here's the story. The mystery woman behind it is Michele Obama.

STU: Oh, I now believe it!

PAT: Wait. In what way is she behind it?

GLENN: Apparently remember the Huffington Post, the story that ran, what was it, a couple of weeks ago where the guy said, I'll offer $100,000 for a sex tape on Glenn Beck, or any information that will bring him down permanently.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Okay? Remember that story?

STU: Then they retracted it.

GLENN: Are you looking for the story are you looking for the picture of the hot woman to come back on television?

PAT: No, I am not. No, I am not.

GLENN: So here is so that's the story. He, in that article said, I'm not going to pay for it, but somebody will. And I'll even raise money for it. Apparently The Globe has an exclusive... that they know that Michelle Obama called him up and she was the one that said, do this.

STU: You know, I feel like if they have that, they might put it ahead of the Dolly Parton story when they have the First Lady of the United States trying to get someone's sex tape.

GLENN: No, I don't think

PAT: Clearly the Dolly story is bigger.

GLENN: I don't think so.

STU: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Because I don't I haven't felt a big passion for the Dolly Parton news of late.

PAT: You haven't?

GLENN: You haven't?

STU: But perhaps that is the large

PAT: Really? She just had that 9 to 5 song out.

STU: No, that was actually a couple of years ago.

PAT: And she was in the movie? Wasn't that just a few years ago?

GLENN: She did launch Dollywood.

STU: No, Dollywood's been around for quite a long time actually.

PAT: She debuted at the Grand Ole Opry.

GLENN: So what in your wildest dreams may I ask this question: Why in your wildest dreams would you run the story, which is obviously false. I mean, it's obviously false.

STU: I haven't read it but I don't think The Globe has anything there.

GLENN: You don't wait a minute, wait a minute.

STU: I don't know that the story is what you're saying it is. That's what I've heard but I haven't actually read the story.

GLENN: I haven't, either. Let's just assume that that's what the story is.

STU: Yes, that's not true.

GLENN: That's not true.

STU: Michele Obama would be throwing up in her mouth asking for that information.

GLENN: I think everybody I throw up in my mouth. Okay. So here's the thing. Why would you put this on your cover? Because it's not going to sell magazines: Glenn Beck sex tape scandal and the mystery woman behind it? Nobody's going to pick that up and go, ooh.

STU: Especially with that picture.

GLENN: I know. There's a sex tape of that guy? Ooh, I hope they have photos. I mean, yikes.

STU: People are going to be blinding themselves.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, you'll take the pixie sticks and jam them in your eyes. So you're not going to sell that. Is this just another smear?

STU: It's The Globe. I mean, you are a big personality at this point for whatever reason.

GLENN: Come on.

STU: You just did the big thing on there that says sex tape scandal, people will pick it up.

GLENN: No, you don't.

STU: They don't want to see pictures. They just want you to

GLENN: Hang on, hang on, hang on. Louie Anderson, sex tape scandal. Do you pick that up?

STU: Your weight might be similar to Louie Anderson but your profile is a little different at this point. I mean, you do have you just did have 500,000 people at the mall in Washington. You're not exactly Louie. I mean

GLENN: I'm trying to think of somebody fatter than me with the same, with the same

PAT: Michael Moore.

GLENN: Michael Moore sex tape scandal. I don't even pick that up.

PAT: I'm vomiting blood at that point. I hacked up a small intestine by then.

GLENN: I've already taken the cyanide capsule, which I do have in my pocket at all times in case they come. And I bit through it.

STU: What I'm saying is they should, as an editor if I'm the editor of this

GLENN: Wait, wait, we just have to because for a minute. How long before somebody publishes that I have a

STU: Glenn Beck...

GLENN: cyanide tablet in my pocket just in case they

PAT: 35 seconds.

GLENN: 35 seconds?

PAT: 35 seconds.

GLENN: Ago or from now?

PAT: From now.

STU: See, if Louie Anderson says that, no one reports it. There is a difference here. But if I'm making an editorial decision, I write in the headline no photos inside.


STU: I make sure people know that they will not be it will be text.

GLENN: No photos inside.

STU: This will be a text story.

GLENN: If you don't buy it this week, we put the photos on the cover next week.

STU: That's how you sell copies.


STU: But I think, you know, there's enough people who don't like you that would buy the magazine because they think you're in a sex photo.

GLENN: There's not that many, are there?

STU: There's four or five, I think.

GLENN: No, but the people who read The Globe, aren't those just the worst of the worst, the uneducated?

STU: The Homer Simpson America, as Cass Sunstein put it?

GLENN: They are the ones who love me, they are the only ones that love me, remember?

STU: Oh, yeah, forgot about that.

GLENN: The educated elites that know better, they don't read the globe. That's beneath them.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

STU: They are accurate, though. There was a sex tape scandal.


STU: I mean, someone brought up a story about a sex tape and then it was pulled by the Huffington Post.

GLENN: Right. They brought

STU: It's a scandal.

GLENN: No, no, they didn't bring up a sex tape. They said find one. Find one or anything.

STU: Right, the sex tape was mentioned in the story and the story was pulled, scandal, sex tape scandal, print it.

GLENN: Let's make one. Can we make one with, like, stick figures?

STU: No.

GLENN: A fat stick figure? Because we get the 100 grand?

PAT: Just to get the 100,000 bucks?

GLENN: Let's release some scandalous tapes of me as a fat stick figure.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: We'll just use Puffin' Fresh, you know, the Pillsbury Doughboy. Isn't that his name?

GLENN: It's Poppin' Fresh in the first place.

PAT: Yeah, Poppin' Fresh.

GLENN: Yeah, should look a little puffy.

PAT: Just a little, you know.

STU: Pasty, doughy would be a good

I am an Irishman and in 2006, I was blessed with the opportunity to spend Independence Day in America. It was a magical experience I will never forget and one I am desperate to repeat.

Everything about the day was magical. I can remember every little detail: seeing the pure joy on people's faces when they saw family members, not seen since Christmas; enjoying burgers and hot dogs being grilled to perfection in the mid-afternoon; jumping on a boat and witnessing an awe-inspiring fireworks display with the feel of a cold beverage in my hand; coming ashore and sitting around an open fire, toasting marshmallows.

As fun as these activities were, they are NOT what made the day magical.

The day was and is made magical remembering WHAT Americans are celebrating: being thankful for the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence and the idea of America which improved EVERY aspect of our world.

I would be honored if you would allow me to share five pivotal points from the Declaration, explaining how they started America on the path to becoming an exceptional nation, and how you can learn from the founders' example today.

1 The Layout

Take a look around society today, and you will notice a prevalent theme. The majority of people are angry, upset, and frustrated. They love to highlight the parts of society they view as a problem and tear it down. This requires zero talent. Even newborn babies with no verbal skills and very little knowledge of the outside world will let you know when they are unhappy by crying for a clean diaper, food or attention.

History is filled with people complaining and starting wars because they feel they have been wronged and sought a future "free from their oppressor".

Thomas Jefferson and your founders were different. Before mentioning any issues with the King (they waited 1338 words), they first explained their vision and how America would be different from other nations. They boldly declared that all men were created equal and have a God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This principle of explaining what you are for has a long track record in American society and has long lead to effective change.

This principle of explaining what you are for has a long track record in American society and has long lead to effective change. This includes famous speeches by John F. Kennedy declaring, "We will go to the moon by the end of this decade," or the great Martin Luther King Jr. telling everyone how he "had a dream."

LESSON: Tell the world what you stand for -- not what you stand against!

2 Role of Government

I have spent over seven years with The Blaze, promoting your founding principles and explaining how America is unique and different to every other nation in the world. Every principle, policy, plan and idea can be traced back to one core principle: How we view government and its role in society.

On the surface of history, it is very easy to believe that our world is very different and would provide many different answers to this simple question.

Just look at our world today and you see many different power structures. England retains a monarch. European countries, like mine, are democracies. Iran is a theocratic-controlled country. Russia is an oligarchy. Inside those countries, you will notice differences in ideologies between communism, socialism, fascism, liberalism and even conservatism.

YES, they all look very different. However, if you look deeper into those countries, you will notice they all view government the exact same.

Government is a central agency that possesses the power to be the moral arbiters of society, the ability to be the great equalizer and most importantly they are the provider of rights.

Does this mean every government uses this power every day?


Clearly, there are governments around the world who are more open to freedom and view government as the last resort. However, every country believes government always has that power and there are situations when government must take control for the "greater good".

If you doubt this, look at the response to the coronavirus pandemic. Even countries that love to talk about freedom and identify as freedom-loving, removed their citizens' rights in the name of public safety. You witnessed everything from governments shutting down businesses, banning you from traveling more than three miles from your home, limiting the number of people you could have to visit your own house and enforcing you to wear a mask.

How could they do this? Because government is the power structure of all these countries and providers of rights. Any government that has the power to confer can also rescind them under the right circumstances.

Your founders were very clear that they did not share the world vision of an all-powerful government.

The idea of America is different. Your founders were very clear that they did not share the world vision of an all-powerful government. You can see this by reviewing the structure of the Constitution, but that foundation was started in the Declaration of Independence when they spoke about the Law of Nature and Nature's God, which highlights ALL rights come from God. You are born with these rights and it is the government's sole responsibility to ensure these rights are never taken away.


Take a step back and look at the public discourse today. You will notice the majority of people love to talk about their rights. My friends on the right love to talk about their right to free speech and guns. My friends on the left love to talk about their right to healthcare and abortions. When was the last time you saw anyone online talk about their duty and responsibilities? It's not a very popular topic.

Your founders were not dumb men.

Their genius was understanding the laws of nature and basic first principles. They researched world history -- from the great empires of the past to senates that were supposed to last forever, examining why they failed. While there are countless reasons for each, understanding one concept is critical. When freedom becomes all about rights and forgets about responsibilities, it creates a vacuum. Historically, the government always fills that vacuum. This creates a prime opportunity for a tyrant to come to power and solve a public need and always ends the same way - gaining more power and stripping you of your individual rights.

Your founders feared this vacuum and warned against it TWICE in the opening paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence. They spoke about your right to alter and abolish your government, instituting new safeguards. Then they spoke about your right, and duty, to throw off the government and provide new guards.

LESSON: Freedom without responsibility will always lead to tyranny.


As an outsider, nothing annoys me more than the constant attacks on your founders and their brilliance. Were they perfect? NOPE. Should they be worshipped like Idols? NOPE. Are there things we can improve upon? Yes. For example, it's 2021; why does the post office need to be included in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution?

Despite their flaws, they provided America with a great platform on which to build. If America is to survive and prosper, the IGNORANT attacks that America's founders were old racist white men with wooden teeth must stop. Why? Because it is a LIE!!!

I could write at length about this issue alone, but I will provide two simple facts.

Firstly, please close your eyes and imagine an actual racist (no, not your typical Donald Trump supporter). Imagine how they look, how they sound, what words they use and everything down to what aftershave they wear. Got that vision? Good. Now try imagining that vile, disgusting racist say the following:


Did your vision say those words? Do you think people like David Duke would say them, let alone sign their name to a statement declaring this as a self-evident principle for the world to see?

Answer: NO!

The second fact requires you to have a reading of history before America. Thomas Jefferson could have very easily left these five powerful words out entirely or just use the accepted language of the day from the Magma Carta which stated:

"All FREE men are created equal."

If Jefferson and the founders were racist, why did they improve on the language of the day and declare this truth as self-evident?

If ...the founders were racist, why did they improve on the language of the day and declare this truth as self-evident?


If you look at culture and politics today, you will notice a common theme where everyone just wants to win, regardless of the cost. Society tells us winning is everything, and there is no room for failure. Is this true? Can society progress really progress without failure and sacrificing everything they have for the greater good?

American history is so vast and deep that it can be straightforward to focus on the great and famous leaders who survived like Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison and Franklin.

This particular weekend, I would like to briefly highlight three patriots who took the ultimate risk by signing the Declaration of Independence. They lost everything, and are sadly forgotten by many who teach history.

JOHN HART: John was a widowed farmer in New Jersey with 12 kids. He was rich, well-known in society, and employed many. When he signed the Declaration, troops attacked his farm with orders to execute him in Hopewell. He fled and eventually died in hiding.

FRANCES LEWIS: Frank was involved in international business and made a fortune on the mercantile exchange. Like John, he was rich, powerful and employed many. When he signed, he returned to find armed troops at his home, taking possession of it. They arrested his wife, starved and mistreated her and although she was later released, she soon passed away due to the horrific treatment.

RICHARD STOCKTON: Richard was a wealthy lawyer who studied at Princeton. He served on the New Jersey Supreme Court and had the respect of his peers. After signing, he was locked up, starved, tortured, and robbed of his possessions. His treatment was so bad that his final days were spent living on the charity of friends.

These brave men could have chosen a much easier road in life. They could have ignored the calls for Independence, paid any additional taxes to the King and still lived a great life. They had everything you would deem desirable in society -- money, earthly possessions, name recognition, and respect.

...these men... risked everything they had so everyone could have a brighter and freer tomorrow.

When they signed the Declaration of Independence, the only thing they could gain was an opportunity for absolute freedom. This ideal was so powerful that these men, and countless others, risked everything they had so everyone could have a brighter and freer tomorrow.

LESSON: Pursuing a higher aspiration is more important than winning.

Personal Request:

It is popular for Americans to say "Happy 4th" or "Happy 4th of July."


After reading this, realize how important and significant your founders to America and the world. It is disrespectful to them, their memory, their sacrifice, and everything they fought for. After all, would you go up to a Christian and say "Happy 25th?"


May I wish you and your exceptional nation a very HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

If you enjoyed this column, I released a special on The Blaze this week where I did a deep dive into the Declaration of Independence with KrisAnne Hall. You can listen for free on Apple or Spotify or The Blaze.

Glenn Beck predicts average Americans will not be eating beef in the future, thanks to America's current monopoly on meat processing that is all but destroying the small farmer.

There's already talk of switching to lab-engineered or plant-based "meat" and severely limiting how much land is used for cattle grazing. One of the strongest voices in Congress pushing back against these plans is Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.).

Rep. Massie joined Glenn on the radio program to explain how farmers are being demolished by big-market regulations, but also to share some ways Congress can fight back. He gives an update on his efforts to pass the PRIME Act and solve the looming meat crises, without getting the government too involved.

Retired U.S. Navy Chief Master-at Arms Sean Cahill is an eyewitness to the well-documented "Nimitz encounters" with unidentified aerial phenomena, or UPA — otherwise known as UFOs.

Cahill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail exactly what he — and others — witnessed and to explain why the nine-page report on UFOs recently released by Congress isn't as lacking in information as some are saying.

In 2004, Cahill was stationed on board the missile cruiser USS Princeton, which along with the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, was part of a Navy carrier strike group conducting training exercises off the coast of Southern California. He told Glenn that Senior Chief Operations Specialist Kevin Day reported multiple "strange and worrisome" anomalous contacts on the Princeton's state-of-the-art radar system.

"[Day] had been picking up anomalous contacts on the AEGIS radar system that were coming in at sub-orbital altitudes, then going down to 80,000 feet," Cahill said. "And then, what was spectacular, was that they were immediately translating down to sea level. And then there were groups of them proceeding in a southerly direction, against the wind."

"This was so strange and worrisome to Kevin, that he began a series of diagnostics," he continued. "He and a radar tech named Voorhis, both rebooted the system numerous times. They double-checked everything, triple-checked. And finally, Kevin went to our captain and said, 'Sir, I'm pretty sure that we have real contacts. These are not ghosts in the system, based on the upgrade.'"

"It's highly unusual and frankly impossible for most of our vehicles that aren't ballistic weapons systems, because to de-orbit a craft requires a certain specific set of maneuvers to reenter the atmosphere," he added. "So, not only were these appearing beyond where the AEGIS radar system could pick them up, they were in space. They were then translating down to an altitude that even our best aircraft don't operate very well at."

Cahill went on to explain how air defensemen, sent to attempt an intercept of the UAP, observed an area of "roiling" water approximately the size of a 737 aircraft. "And around it, were these Tic Tac-shaped objects that were matte white in color, approximately 30 feet long, with no control surfaces. No means of compulsion. No markings, whatsoever. And they were darting around, instantaneously, like ping-pong balls" he said.

"What we encountered that week was unlike anything we had ever seen before," Cahill continued. "The night that the pilots returned with the gun camera footage, before we had seen it on board Princeton, I was out on the port side bridge wing with the port watch. Approximately 45 degrees up in the sky, at 2,000 feet off the port bow, I saw five to seven lights in a completely clear and cloudless sky. It was about 10 o'clock at night, and these five to seven lights all moved toward the center of their formation that they were in, and each instantaneously disappeared. They blinked out. But they didn't show any kind of movement or propulsion."

"This action completely matched what we were seeing on radar. And completely matched what the pilots returned with on the gun camera footage," he said. "The next morning, when myself and the other chief petty officers witnessed that video, we were astonished. We knew that immediately what we were looking at."

The Biden White House is working overtime on the great reset of energy. A major part of the president's agenda is focused on the leftist pipe dream of the U.S. reaching net zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the fine print, dirty secrets, and very inconvenient truths about the Left's green agenda to "save the world." The Left's solutions of solar, wind, and electric vehicles are driven by climate change hysteria that will doom America to long-term failure and submission to our foreign enemies. But as Glenn reveals, not everything is as green as it's being sold to you.
