Glenn Beck: Want some carrots to go with those fries?

GLENN: Well, up in the gubernatorial race in Illinois, there was there was a serious problem with the debate that they had to get right to. They want to talk right about the issues, corruption, et cetera, et cetera.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Can you can you give me the

PAT: Should I walk you through this?

GLENN: Set the scene.

PAT: There was. It was Tuesday night between the gubernatorial debate between Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and State Senator Bill Brady who we met on Saturday night. Quinn called on Brady well, here's the problem: The Chicago Sun Times wrote about your comments which were obviously quite inflammatory, quite inflammatory, Glenn.

GLENN: It just came out.

PAT: I know. I know.

GLENN: I saw that it was I think it was the BBC or somebody said it was well crafted.

PAT: Well crafted. Did they

GLENN: Now. They said it was well crafted.

PAT: Here were your comments. Get away from my french fries, Mrs. Obama, Beck warned. The first politician that comes up to me with a carrot stick, I've got a place for it and it's not in my tummy. Okay? So, that brought at the debate, at the gubernatorial debate, that brought the crowd to a laughing roar. They started roaring with laughter.


GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We have to get this audio. Stu, can you get find this audio from the debate?

PAT: I'm looking for it right now, and so is TV. But Quinn didn't think that was very funny, obviously.

GLENN: Quinn didn't?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

PAT: I thought it was important I was disturbed on Saturday night to see Glenn Beck come to our state and disparage and the mock the first lady of the United States of America.

GLENN: Okay. Hang on just a second. I don't think I mocked her. It wasn't really about her. It was about any politician, any politician that comes to me and tries to take away my french fries and replace it with a carrot.

PAT: Well, he said Michelle Obama is my friend. Then he called on Brady to apologize for your marks.

GLENN: That is very interesting.

PAT: And

GLENN: Did he apologize?

PAT: Bill Brady answered, to the roar of the crowd, you have got to be kidding me.

GLENN: (Laughter.)

PAT: That was fantastic.

GLENN: Can we see if we can get him on the phone? Can we get Brady on the phone? I would like to see if we could talk to him about that so I can certainly not apologize to him or anyone else for a comment I stand by.

PAT: You stand by the french fry remark?

GLENN: Yes. Any politician that comes near my french fries, tries to replace it with a carrot, I've got a place for it and it ain't in my tummy. I stand by that. I stand by that. (Laughter.)

PAT: I've seen this kind of rhetoric before.

GLENN: I have, too. Oh, when they start putting things in not your tummy, oh, it just

PAT: I get scared and I begun to weep. (Laughter.)

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
