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

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."

On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.
