GLENN: How's Aunt Zeituni?

PAT: Great.

GLENN: Seriously Aunt Zeituni is good?

PAT: Yeah, she's good.

GLENN: Have you checked in with her? I'm worried about her.

PAT: They have in Boston. They're worried about her, too. Well, I don't know if worried's the right word.

GLENN: They're angry?

PAT: So much as irritated and downright mad.

GLENN: Well, this is Obama's aunt who, Aunt Zeituni who we all love and admire and who is here illegally and has been they've tried to evict her how many times?

PAT: Several times they tried to kick her out of the country and she wouldn't go.

GLENN: Yeah, and then George Bush saved her the last time because it was during the election and nobody wanted to make it look like it was an election ploy. So she had to go right to court in January right after election.

PAT: And now she's been granted asylum. So I don't think she's illegal anymore.

GLENN: Oh, she's granted asylum?

PAT: Granted asylum.

GLENN: Why has she been granted asylum?

PAT: You know, the cynical among us would say it's because she's Barack Obama's aunt but I know that has nothing to do with

GLENN: No, she's actually very angry with America.

PAT: Yeah, she doesn't seem, you know

GLENN: Grateful?

PAT: No, uh uh.

GLENN: Huh. That's a

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's an aunt of Obama's

PAT: Not grateful.

GLENN: Not grateful.

PAT: Surprising, isn't it?

GLENN: It is.

PAT: Instead she's more like this.

ZEITUNI: If I have come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.

PAT: Oh, if she comes.

GLENN: If she comes.

PAT: As an immigrant. Then we have the obligation to make her a citizen.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. This is an aunt of Obama. She's not saying that we're an oppressive society, is she?

PAT: No, I'm sure not.

GLENN: No, we just have the obligation.

PAT: I'm sure not.

GLENN: She's demanding citizenship.

PAT: Well, she took the opportunity to come to our country illegally and break our laws. The least we can do is make her a citizen in return.

GLENN: Well

PAT: So

GLENN: Well, we're such why are we so oppressive?

PAT: I don't know.

REPORTER: President Obama's aunt, a woman many say is the poster child of our broken immigration system. We only found out about her back in 2008.

ZEITUNI: Me, Americans dream became was my Americans worst nightmare.

GLENN: Okay, stop for a second. The American dream for her coming here illegally and taking our illegal taking our services here, while she's here illegally. The American dream of being able to come here and leach off us has become a nightmare because we say we don't like leeches.

PAT: I hate that. He asks why.

ZEITUNI: Because of what I have gone through.

REPORTER: Tell me what you've gone through.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

ZEITUNI: It's a hell of a lot.

GLENN: Hell of a lot.

ZEITUNI: Hell of a lot.

PAT: Pretty specific. A lot like her nephew.

GLENN: Her nephew.

PAT: He gives us those answers.

GLENN: A hell of a lot.

PAT: A hell of a lot.

GLENN: Hoping for change.

PAT: Yeah.

REPORTER: She became political fodder intended to hurt her nephew. She also became a focal point of anger. How could Zeituni be here legally for years living in government housing?

ZEITUNI: I've been treated like public enemy number one.

GLENN: No, no, no.

REPORTER: In 2004 Zeituni was ordered out of the country by an immigration judge. She didn't leave.

REPORTER: Did you know that you were staying in this country illegally?

ZEITUNI: I knew I had overstayed.

REPORTER: She said that once she got out of the hospital, she lived in a homeless shelter for nearly two years and then was assigned public housing despite thousands of legal residents also waiting for that kind of assistance.

STU: Weird.

GLENN: Hold it just a second. That is weird. First of all, did she know that her nephew lived here? And he is so into being his brother's keeper.

PAT: Yeah. He's charitable.

GLENN: That he's living in Chicago.

PAT: You know what?

GLENN: She should have gone and gotten help from her nephew.

PAT: His salvation can't come about without a collective salvation for his whole family.

GLENN: He is his brother's keeper.

PAT: That's

GLENN: Now, I don't know about the aunt, but his brother well, no, his brother is out also living

PAT: On 75 cents a month.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Yeah. Another weird thing is that he was making tons of money and being an evil rich person and paying the rate of the Bush tax cuts, meaning that he shouldn't have even had an extra 5% of his money. He should have been paying a higher rate. That 5% of the money would have easily helped his aunt.

GLENN: He wouldn't have even noticed the money for her rent and her food and her car and her transportation.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And her healthcare and everything else. He wouldn't even notice it.

STU: Wouldn't even notice it was gone.

PAT: Doesn't need it. Doesn't need the extra cash.

GLENN: Why does he hate his aunt so much?

PAT: I don't know.

STU: Just selfish, I guess, because he certainly was going on vacations and had a nice home and a nice car.

Oh, no. Oh, my, I see it.

GLENN: There it is. It just landed on my cheek.

STU: Well, why don't you brush it off your cheek?

GLENN: Because it doesn't bother me at all. I could sit here and have a fly or a bee just crawl around on my face all the time while I give speeches that I'm reading right directly from a TelePrompTer and it doesn't seem to bother me. What, does it bother you when that happens?

STU: Well, kind of. You are sitting and you are not even

GLENN: Hang on. It just flew away.

STU: Hang on, it's moving again.

GLENN: Now it's on my nose. Not a problem.

STU: Why isn't a problem? You could easily move it

GLENN: No, it's kind of cool. Doesn't bother me at all. No, doesn't bother me at all.

STU: You could easily remove it with no effort.

GLENN: No, hang on. You know who knows? You know who knows about the aunt?

STU: Who knows?

GLENN: The Bees Know.

PAT: The Bees Know.

GLENN: That's seriously.

PAT: Which is why we're wearing

GLENN: The Bees Know sweat shirts new for fall. They're in the they're in the Web store starting tomorrow. Yes. Yes, I'm an evil capitalist. Yes.

PAT: All the proceeds go to Aunt Zeituni, right?

GLENN: Not a dime. Not a dime.

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: I believe that I am not Obama's aunt's keeper.

PAT: So does he, frankly.

GLENN: What's really weird is he thinks that you

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: are his aunt's keeper.

PAT: Yes, he does. Yes, he does.

GLENN: So anyway, there's more.

PAT: There's more.

GLENN: We're just getting started. Good eating.

REPORTER: How do you respond to those families that would say, why is she getting anything?

ZEITUNI: Let me tell you. I don't mind. I can't even be on the streets with homeless people. I didn't ask for it. They gave it to me.

GLENN: Stop. Stop just a second.

PAT: I mean, what is she pissed about?

GLENN: She doesn't care? She doesn't care? Then kick her out.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And put American citizens in the house.

STU: That do care.

GLENN: She doesn't care. "I do not care, and I live on street with homeless." Good. Go live on street with homeless people then.

PAT: And for those who say that's horribly

GLENN: Callous?

PAT: callous, get over it. How about her family? I don't know. She's got a nephew who makes $5 1/2 million a year and pays no mortgage! At least on the house he currently resides in.

STU: And is still paying, by the way, lower tax rates than he once he has plenty of time.

PAT: Plenty of time.

STU: Until they kick in, he's got months.

PAT: And he doesn't need the money. She does.

GLENN: He wouldn't even notice the money.

PAT: Wouldn't notice it. Wouldn't notice it.

GLENN: His salvation depends on a collective salvation. He can't go to heaven unless we all go to heaven.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: That's why he's got to be his brother's keeper. He'll let his aunt starve on the streets but his brother he'll let live for 75 cents a day.

PAT: A month.

STU: A month.

PAT: Oh, he would be a wildly wealthy man if he made 75 cents a day. 75 cents a month.

GLENN: 75 cents a month?

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Has Sally Struthers called Barack Obama?

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: I don't know.

PAT: Barack, for less than the cost of the humpback whale in the tasty butter sauce I just ate, you could feed your brother George Onyango in Kenya. You know?

STU: That's persuasive.

PAT: It is. It is good. I'm not sure she got his name right, but

GLENN: Is there more Zeituni? Because I love her.

PAT: There's even more.

GLENN: There's even more Zeituni. Here's Aunt Zeituni.

ZEITUNI: And you better just ask the system. Ask your system.

STU: That's what we're doing.

ZEITUNI: I didn't create the system.

REPORTER: And she's right.

STU: She is right.

REPORTER: But not apologetic. When news of Zeituni broke, it was of national interest. How could she be living here so long illegally?

There are people that need assistance who have been paying into the system and they've waited in line and they've waited their turn.

GLENN: Yes!

REPORTER: And then somebody like you they say comes along and you never waited in line and you never paid into the system and yet you took advantage of the system.

ZEITUNI: I did not take any advantage of the system. The system took advantage of me.

PAT: Do you love that quote?

STU: Oh, did they?

PAT: In what way? In the way that they provided you with shelter and food?

GLENN: Could we raise the money?

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Could we raise the money in less than a tenth of a second to buy her a small little no, a small little, you know, one room home in is she from Kenya?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: In Kenya and a plane ticket, a one way plane ticket. Could we raise the money in less than a tenth of a second to do that?

PAT: You know we could.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, no, we could.

PAT: I'll bet you the phones are being dialed right now.

GLENN: Yeah. But you would have to agree that you never, ever come back again and you are sworn to secrecy that we've done this to you, we've inflicted a new home on you!

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: That we've taken advantage of you so much that we have given you free housing while you were here, free food while you were here, while you were raping our system I'm sorry, while we were oppressing you, the victim somehow or another in your twisted mind.

STU: Yeah. I mean, this is, of course, going to be spun into some evil fashion. But the bottom line here is that you have everyone wants people who need help to get help. But you have people who are struggling and actually could use the stuff and appreciate it.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

STU: Standing behind her in line who paid nothing into the system.

GLENN: Last night, last night my son saw a garbage man on the street, and I was so proud of him. He saw a garbage man on the street, and this guy was working his ass off. He was just working it. And he was hot and he was sweaty. I mean, he was just working it. And my son looked out the window and he said, look at that guy, Dad. I said, the garbage man? And he said, yeah. Look at how hard he's working. And I said, yeah, he is. That's good, isn't it? He said, yeah. Wow, he's working hard. That guy? That garbage man? That guy I'll help. That guy falls on hard times, that guy I will help. Because he's working it! I thought as I was driving away, I thought, now how does that guy get ahead? You know how that guy gets ahead? By working. In today's society, somebody who will actually give a full day's hard labor and do it with happiness in their heart and in believing the American dream that if they work hard, the next generation can be a little bit better off. That's how he does it. That's how he gets ahead. I've said it before. I'll work at McDonald's, I'll work the Frialator at McDonald's because I'll know by the end of the year I'm the manager of McDonald's. Not because I'm smart or anything else. Because I will apply myself. And so many people will just, "I have to work at McDonald's? You are inflicting a McDonald's job on me?" Yeah, I'm giving you a job and a chance. Yes. You do with it what you will. You can say, "I can't work at McDonald's." You get nothing. You're working your butt off in McDonald's? You're really working hard? You're going to advance. Because a lot of people won't do it. And if you're really working hard, those are the people that we should help! Those people and the people who just cannot do it themselves. If you are if you cannot do it yourself, if you are mentally incapable of doing it, if you are handicapped and you can't do it, you're old, you're infirm, whatever. It's a totally different story. Those are the people that we help. And those who are helping themselves. I got news for ya. Even the handicapped can help themselves. My daughter has cerebral palsy. She works her butt off every day. You're darn right she has a job. She works her butt off every day. Is she going to be a millionaire? I don't know. Will my other daughter who's not a who's not handicapped be a millionaire? I don't know. But all of them work. And all of them must work. And the day they stop working is the day they get nothing from Dad. Nothing. And that's the way that's the way my house is run. And that's the way our country should be run. You want to better yourself? Great. I am there. You don't want to better yourself? You want to make excuses? You want to lay around? Do it on somebody else's couch, not mine.

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.

You.

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 youtu.be


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'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

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."
