GLENN: Okay. So here's the thing. Politico is doing a story today on how the aides of O'Donnell are coming out against her. These are the aides that tried to help her on her failed campaign in 2008, and she's just unelectable. You know what the big did you guys read it today? Do you know what the big revelation is from the aides that have turned on her?

PAT: No.

GLENN: She was very irresponsible. She wanted to hand out in the summer campaign, I guess in 2008 she wanted to hand out sunscreen and print on it, don't get burned by higher taxes.

STU: No!

GLENN: Vote O'Donnell.

STU: No, no, she did not.

GLENN: And they said that was ridiculous.

PAT: Oh, how irresponsible.

GLENN: People thought they were throwing out condoms into the crowd and it was awful.

PAT: What?

STU: What a terrible woman.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: What a horrible, horrible human being.

GLENN: You know, disregard the fact the person she's running against is a self proclaimed Marxist.

PAT: Glenn, you've forgotten about, you've forgotten on her stance on lying. She doesn't believe people should lie, either. That's ridiculous.

GLENN: Everybody has to lie.

PAT: You have to lie.

STU: And you heard about the mouse brain gaffe obviously from that they've just uncovered.

GLENN: No.

STU: Oh, yeah. She was on a show, I think it was O'Reilly actually.

GLENN: Guys, hang on just a second. Her competitor is a self proclaimed Marxist.

STU: Yeah, yeah. Whatever, whatever. So she's on O'Reilly and she's talking about cloning and stem cell research.

GLENN: Okay, but wait. He's a marks IT.

STU: I'm trying to get through this story. Can you hold on?

PAT: Why is it you have to shout down those who are

GLENN: I think the mouse brains are saying, he's a Marxist.

PAT: He is shouting us down.

STU: This is unbelievable. I'm just trying to get this truth out about Christine O'Donnell.

GLENN: Proceed.

STU: She was on the air on O'Reilly and she said that scientists in the United States are putting human brains into mice. And the truth is they were only putting human brain cells into mice. What? This is a scandal.

PAT: She's unelectable.

STU: This is a scandal.

PAT: She's unelectable.

GLENN: Guys, he's a Marxist.

STU: And you heard the sunscreen thing, right? Did you hear about the sunscreen thing?

PAT: Where they were throwing sunscreen?

GLENN: I'm the one who brought that up. I can't believe a Marxist

PAT: That could have been a condom. I mean, it wasn't but it could have been.

STU: Right.

PAT: I mean, what an idiot.

GLENN: This is incredible. Now, listen. I was thinking about this last night. I was reading my scriptures and it came to me last night.

PAT: Hallelujah.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you, Brother Pat. You are an ordained minister, are you not?

PAT: Praise Jesus.

GLENN: You are.

PAT: I am.

GLENN: I am an ordained minister, too, at the Church of

PAT: Hallelujah.

GLENN: Church of Universal Life, Modesto, California.

PAT: Hallelujah.

GLENN: Now, here's the thing. Last night I was thinking we need a buddy system. We need a system where everyone is responsible for waking one person up. You are responsible for waking one person up, Democrat, Republican, independent, and getting them to the polls, one person. This election needs to be a buddy system. You make sure that somebody's like, oh, you know what? It's not going to make a difference. You wake them up and you get them to the polls.

PAT: I like what you said

GLENN: Stu?

PAT: a couple of days ago: Get to the polls.

STU: Pat, I'm going to need you to get to the polls.

PAT: Natasha?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. First of all, the only one so far I mean, I need to drive you to the polls, because you are irresponsible.

STU: No, I'm not. I'm

GLENN: You could be sidetracked by you could be sidetracked by

STU: By election coverage that we'll be doing on Insider Extreme? Yes, I will not be I'll have to vote in advance because of that.

GLENN: You know what we need? We need to get our absentee ballots.

STU: It's very important.

GLENN: Because we usually don't get at least I have to vote absentee because I can never get home.

STU: Right. We're always doing coverage in New York, which none of us actually live in the state.

GLENN: And hang on. Let's just relish that for a second.

PAT: All that wealth, somewhere else.

GLENN: (Laughing).

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: All right. So I think what we have to do, I think we have to start a campaign, you know, amongst ourselves that it is bring a friend to vote, but bring the friend that wasn't going to go out and vote. If this isn't the largest turnout for a midterm election, we've done something wrong. No, no, no. We as a nation haven't learned our lesson.

STU: That's your standard, the highest ever? Just the highest ever's all you need?

STU: I think so.

GLENN: One of the highest ever. I think it should be.

PAT: Right. I think it should be. If this isn't, what would ever be? If you're not fired up for this election, for this cause, for

GLENN: The only thing that would

PAT: What would fire you up?

GLENN: The only thing that would change that would be you're not thrilled with the people, but I got news for ya. You're never going to be thrilled with the people you're going to vote for. You know, you do have to look at each candidate and say, hmmm, is it the one who said the human brains in the mice instead of human brain cells into mice? Or the Marxist?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: If you can't choose between those two and you're not motivated, if there isn't, like, I cannot live in a world where someone says human brains into mice and what they really meant was human brain cells, and did you hear the sunscreen thing? If you aren't motivated to go out and stop that crazy woman from getting in, or let's just say you think Marxists shouldn't be running our country

PAT: Bigot. Bigot.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: If you just think that maybe a Marxist shouldn't be we don't need another Marxist to happy us with the capitalist system, what will motivate you?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: What will motivate you?

PAT: And we've always said, I've said for years that the time for, you know, to find the right candidate to work all this out so you don't have to be faced with the lesser of two evils in the general election is the primary season. Well, we went through that. We just kicked out eight incumbent or establishment chosen candidates.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: And just booted them out of the system for more conservative people.

GLENN: And Democrats

PAT: Here's your chance.

GLENN: And Democrats, what has been happening in your party is they have moved farther left. You've got did I mention that there's a Marxist running who is Harry Reid's pet?

STU: Oh, the guy who's running against the mouse brain lady? The mouse brain sunscreen lady that I can't believe you know, she's completely unelectable, Pat.

PAT: She should lie under any circumstance and if

STU: Yeah

PAT: She will not lie. She was harboring Jews.

STU: Unbelievable.

PAT: She will not lie to the Nazis. She would rather have Jews.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait.

PAT: I cannot believe it.

GLENN: Wait.

STU: I'm sorry?

GLENN: Her competitor is a Marxist.

PAT: Did you hear the sunscreen thing?

GLENN: And

PAT: Are you listening to us? Are you listening to us?

GLENN: And Harry Reid's pet.

STU: But she wants

GLENN: My gosh, you're a hate monger.

STU: She once said she lost a county

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: When she well, she won a county when she didn't win it.

PAT: Not only that, why does Glenn Beck hate all pets? Why do you hate all pets?

GLENN: You ready for this?

PAT: Mr. Pet hate monger.

GLENN: I'm about ready to be on the right side of this one for the liberals. Who are you to own another being and call it your pet?

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.
