GLENN: Show me your friends and I will show you your future. That's what my parents, my mother, my grandparents used to say to me all the time: Show me your friends and I will show you your future. Well, that is something that I guess doesn't matter anymore. If your children were hanging out with heroine users, if they were hanging out with felons, ex cons, heroin users, you know, you name it, would you be concerned about your child's future? Would you not have a sit down and say, hey, hey, hey, umm, you know, I know you have some good friends here but I don't understand the heroin user. I don't understand the attraction to all the ex cons you have, the thugs, the thieves. I don't you know, as a dad my daughter is dating an agnostic, okay? I wish he knew, but he doesn't, and that's okay. It's my daughter's choice, and I know that I know that my daughter has really, really good taste, I know that she is smart, I know that she is a good judge of character, and I have met this young man, and I like him a lot. He's a good, decent guy. I like him. Now, if my daughter was dating an atheist, a diehard atheist, I would say, honey, I'm sorry but I've got to say something here. He not only doesn't believe in God, he is going to take you down a road where he's going to build up walls around you and God. This is a this is a bad error in judgment. Okay, I think that's my responsibility as a dad. I think it's my responsibility as a dad if my kids were hanging out with the wrong kind of people that I would say something. Wouldn't you? Show me your friends and I'll show you your future. Well, our president is putting on a little shindig, two of them as a matter of fact, two in Washington, two rallies this month. The first one is this weekend, and I want you to know the reason why they're doing this is because they must make you feel alone. They must make you feel discouraged. They must make you say, well, that 8/28 thing, that was nothing. Now, if they don't have two million people down on the mall, it's going to be a shock. They have to have two million people. They have to. They have 300 organizing partners. This is what they do for a living.

PAT: Some of the biggest organizers in the world.

GLENN: In the world. In the world.

PAT: SEIU, AFL CIO.

GLENN: Green for All, the NAACP, the national council of La Raza, Rainbow PUSH, SEIU 1199, SEIU Service Employees, Sojourners, the UAW, the United States Students Association, the Communication Workers of America, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Center for Community Change, the American Federation of Teachers. I mean, if it's

PAT: What these guys do, they organize.

GLENN: The AIDS Walk Washington, the Clerical Workers, Action LA Network.

PAT: You don't want to mess with the clerical workers. I mean

GLENN: Seriously?

PAT: You really don't want to mess with them.

GLENN: No, don't

PAT: Don't even start.

GLENN: Don't do it.

PAT: Don't even start.

GLENN: Don't do it. You have all of the, you know, Get Equal, all of the gay rights organizations who, I mean, you have the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network. These guys organize. That's what they do for a living. So if you're not getting all of these people out and two million people out on the mall, it's a massive failure. But you won't know that. You won't know that because you'll just see, and the media will shoot it in such a way that it will look like a massive gathering, and I predict it will be. But it will it is designed to demoralize you and to make the Democrats feel like, "Oh, we've got something." Well, Democrats, I just want to speak to you. You might be fine with, you know, the AFL CIO and the NAACP and the RainbowPUSH Coalition and SEIU. I don't know why you are cool with especially the unions that are just screwing the American worker. I mean, the UAW, I mean, they have really done a good job in Detroit, haven't they? You may be fine with these, but may I just go through some of the other organizations, and this is all from the website is this 10/2/10 or is this Obama's website? Is this Organizing For America? Because Organizing For America, which is Obama's front organization, his ACORN

PAT: They are pushing it.

GLENN: They are pushing it. Okay. So just ask let me just ask, International ANSWER: Act Now to Stop War and End Racism. Do you know what International ANSWER is? Do you know who's behind International ANSWER?

PAT: It's a communist group.

GLENN: It's not like, "Hey, there's a bunch of commies." This isn't a joke. This is an actual communist group. They're one of the sponsors. Let's see. The Chicago Democratic Socialists of America. What are Democratic socialists?

PAT: Umm...

GLENN: What are they? They sound nice.

PAT: They do.

GLENN: Democratic Socialists.

PAT: They do.

GLENN: Okay. The Democratic socialists in Europe are the Fabian Society. The Fabian Society is a really nasty group. It is the Fabian Society, their logo is a wolf in sheep's clothing. The Democratic socialists, if you've not heard of the Democratic socialists except here in America or you just kind of have heard it, just put it into place this way. When Yeltsin gave the, is it the Dumas, the choice of what to do in Russia, that they could have chaos and revolution and blood in the streets or they could fundamentally transform into a federation of states, the their congress was full of communists. I mean, card carrying, full uniform, diehard, I love Stalin, I love Lenin, Marxist communists. Where did they go? Well, they took their uniforms off and hung it in a closet. What's his name, you know, Putin took off his gun and turned in his KGB uniform, put a suit on, and many of, if not most, became Democratic socialists. It's a nicer name for communist.

So Democratic Socialists of America. The church of Evangelical United Church of Christ. Code Pink, you know who Code Pink is, right? Code Pink are the ones that they go and they harass our Marines in California. The Color For Change by the way, Code Pink is also, they were connected to the flotilla, the anti Israeli flotilla.

STU: Glenn, on that note, too, you talked about International ANSWER a while ago. Remember they're in the same boat here, the Anti Defamation League has hit them as saying this is a quote from their website: Answer's ideology is strongly rooted in the Workers World Party, a revolutionary Marxist, Leninist party found in the 1950s. Goes on to mention that ANSWER and the related group IAC have both repeatedly expressed support for terrorist groups determined to dismantle the state of Israel including Hamas and Hezbollah.

GLENN: Okay. Code Pink is the same thing. Color for Change, you know who that is. They were the first to boycott this program. That is Van Jones' organization. Van Jones started this organization with some other guy. I don't remember his name. He is a communist revolutionary. Read STORM. Then you have the Communist Party USA. The reason why I'm going through these is because last night I got a lot of mail and I said, if you want more information about this weekend's rally and how to organize and how to get there and how to grab a bus, just go to Communist Party USA. Now, this is akin to me saying, hey, if you want some information, go to my website at GlennBeck.com for 8/28 and there we have our sponsors and one of them is the KKK and they'll give more information on the KKK website and you go ahead and just board the bus. In fact, it may be worse for them because just speaking of numbers, communists have killed millions. KKK have killed thousands. I'd like to stand with people who kill none!

STU: That's a good safety tip.

GLENN: That's a good safety tip. Then you have the Democratic Socialists of America, you have the Detroit Democratic Socialists of America, you have

PAT: And people didn't believe you last night. They did not believe you.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Go to the website. Go to CPUSA.

GLENN: Dot org.

PAT: Dot org. Click on the

GLENN: Youth, Communists For Youth or something like that.

PAT: Takes you right to all the information you need for the rally this weekend.

GLENN: Everything, everything.

STU: Again this is an event that the Obama administration's political arm is promoting.

GLENN: Right.

STU: This isn't just some crazy event that happens to agree with some of their policies.

GLENN: And these are this is the official website. So you have the Detroit Socialists of America, you have Ex Offenders Association of Pennsylvania, you have the General Board of Church and Society, United Methodist Church. That is important because the United Methodist Church is playing some sort of game here. It was in the New York Times, and the New York Times got heat for saying that they had endorsed this. And so The Blaze got on it and they started to call and they went to the United Methodist Church and they couldn't figure out what the Methodist church is saying, either. They are saying, well, our one board but not our general board has endorsed this. But not the principles of the organization but the principles of the rally. So do you endorse it or do you not endorse it? Well, yes, we do, but only this board endorsed. They're playing games. If you're a Methodist, you should demand: Do you stand with all of these communist organizations? You have the Humanist party of New York, you have the International Socialist Organization, you have the interfaith worker justice, you have the Jewish Funds For Justice.

STU: Was that the one that ran the ad calling you Hitler, I believe?

PAT: I believe so.

GLENN: I believe so. You have the New York City Democratic Socialists of America, you have the Peace and Freedom Party. That sounds good.

PAT: Seems to be a lot of socialist named groups.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And I believe the Peace and Freedom Party is a California, very small party in California but one that endorses like getting, you know, letting Leonard, what is the name Leonard Peltier, the guy who murdered FBI agents out of prison, the guy, you know, Mumia, they are all on that bandwagon.

GLENN: Progressive Congress Action Fund, Progressive Democrats of America, Progressive Democrats, queers for Equal Queers For Economic Justice, the Planned Parenthood.

PAT: Did you skip the Committee of Correspondence For Democracy and Socialism?

GLENN: I did. I didn't see that one.

PAT: I like that one. That's a good group.

GLENN: Let's see. The United Church of Christ, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, blah, blah blah. The Working Family Party and the Ya Ya Network is also.

STU: Yeah, apparently the Ya Ya Network at least what I was told by one of the producers is that they are a group that comes on when military recruiters go to schools, they come on and oppose that and tell the students to not join the military, which is a nice one. And also I should say I did make a mistake that the Peace and Freedom Party was not I remembered it being tied to Leonard Peltier, the guy who was killing, you know, FBI agents, whatever. It wasn't that they were tied to him. It's that they actually ran him for president.

GLENN: Oh.

STU: He was their presidential candidate in 2004. So I'm sorry.

PAT: An egregious error, Stu.

STU: I apologize for the error.

GLENN: I just have to ask. Does the president the NAACP and everybody wants the tea parties to reject racism, and it is easy for me to say I reject racism, I reject race divisions, I reject all those that use it for power one way or another, I reject it and those who play on those fears. Judge a man by the content of his character. It is easy for me to say why I am against racism, that I reject racism, and that you should reject racism. It is easy for me to say, and I could do hours on it.

STU: And have.

GLENN: And have. The president, will he ever reject Marxism, communism, revolutions? Will he ever reject any of those things?

PAT: Socialism.

GLENN: He has he will always joke about it, but when you're standing with people that have called for violent revolutions, when you have when you are standing with people who are calling for an overturning of the American system, don't you think it's important for the president to reject it, clearly, clearly and say communism is wrong, socialism with Marxism and revolutionaries is wrong and here is why, and I reject it, wholly and unequivocally.

STU: You could do that. Or you could officially promote their events. I mean, there's two ways to go on that one.

GLENN: One way or another.

ATF agent caught taking photos of gun-buyer info — insists she's definitely NOT 'creating a registry'

Black Metal Firearms owner David Nagel originally recorded on video an ATF inspector taking pictures of his company’s documents to show what the gun industry is up against in the current political climate, but what he caught on camera has now gone viral.

Nagel joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to reveal exactly what happened the day he captured the shocking video, the threats made by that ATF inspector against his regular customers, and the insults she hurled toward all gun owners.

According to Nagel, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Industry Operations Inspector Pamela Scott began conducting a routine review, but things quickly went sideways when she started taking photos of the shop's detailed sales records — including the identities of every gun buyer.

Nagel said he confronted Scott and even asked if she was "creating a registry," by collecting the personal information of his customers.

"No, that would be illegal," she allegedly answered.

That's when Nagel decided it was time to capture Scott's actions on video.

"We had quite a bit of recording," he told Glenn. "But a lot of it, we were not able to share because there was personal information visible in it, you know, contact numbers and things of that sort. So, we didn't want to put [all of the video] on blast."

The little bit he did "blast" out on Instagram garnered tens of thousands of views and received a wide range of both outrage and support.

Nagel went on to explain how Scott responded when he told her his customers would not be comfortable with her collecting their information.

"She said, 'well, it sounds like your customers are just being paranoid. Maybe I should look into them a little bit more.' Which I thought was really creepy," Nagel said.

"That's a threat," Glenn stated.

"And she said, 'you have a few gun nuts in there.' And I politely corrected her. I prefer gun enthusiasts. And she said, 'no, they're nuts,'" Nagel told Glenn. "That was a kind of backhanded way of describing the average American. Because, if we're all nuts, then what are you governing us for?"

A video has been making the rounds on social media that appears to show Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) telling Fox News host Sean Hannity and Lara Trump that the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was “not a raid.”

The video, which has been viewed more than 3.5 million times as of this writing, was captioned "Ron DeSantis went on Hannity and things got SPICY." The (very badly) altered video inserted footage of DeSantis at a 2020 press conference to look like he was correcting Hannity's use of the word "raid" to describe the recent Mar-a-Lago debacle.

“It’s not a raid. With all due respect. It was not a raid. They were serving valid process in accordance with the laws and Constitution of the United States and the state of Florida. They did it with integrity. They did it with honor. And to say it’s a raid is disinformation," DeSantis says in the video, kicking off the alleged "spicy" back and forth.

Both Reuters and AP News have issued fact-checks to debunk the doctored video, because apparently people on Twitter can't decern the extremally, blatantly, painfully obvious alterations for themselves.

Did people really not notice that Hannity is stuck in a weird time loop that makes him appear to be suffering some sort of seizure? Or the way Lara's face is frozen mid-blink? Or how about DeSantis' beyond-even-the-world's-worst-mouth-breather default position when Hannity is speaking? And if none of that clued folks in, surely the crazy chyron would do the trick, right?

Maybe not.

DeSantis' then-press secretary Christina Pushaw (who just resigned from her job as press secretary to work as the rapid response director for the governor's re-election campaign) had to step in to set the record straight.

Gov. DeSantis joined Glenn Beck on the most recent "Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about the unrelenting leftist and media attacks accusing him of tyranny, and scaremongering about how he'll "kill" our "democracy."

DeSantis is unafraid to call out their lies and keep Florida on the front lines for freedom. When Disney tried to protest his Parental Rights in Education law, he stood his ground — and won. He did the same with CRT and woke prosecutors.

Now gearing up to take on ESG.

In the video clip below, he details what his state has already done, what the legislature is preparing to do, and why he's calling on other states to join in his anti-ESG battle: "If we pooled our voting rights together, we would be able to counteract what California and New York and a lot of these other pension plans are doing."

'Like Hunter Biden without the hookers': Why did Nancy Pelosi's son REALLY join Taiwan trip?

Nearly everyone, from President Joe Biden to the head of the United Nations, agreed that California Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan was dangerous. Even former President Barack Obama's ambassador to China, Max Baucus, said Pelosi's actions made Biden look even weaker than he already does — and that's really saying something.

So, why did Pelosi risk global war and go against her own party? If you listen to Politco, she's got a "decades-long" beef with China and just wanted to show support for the Asian nation, but the timing of her trip suggests there’s likely more to the story.

On "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposed the Pelosi family's (including her son) lucrative connections to Taiwanese companies and revealed how certain business deals directly related to their trip to Taiwan.

"Nancy Pelosi and her husband and their son ... they love money as a family. By the way, did you know her son went on that trip and was doing business with, oh, wow, some of the people she was meeting with? Did you know that?" Glenn asked. "Sounds a little like Hunter Biden without the hookers and the crack."

Glenn pointed out that when Pelosi was elected to Congress, "somewhere in the late 1700s," her net worth was about $3 million, but by 2008 her family's wealth had ballooned to $31 million. By the end of the Obama term, her wealth had doubled to $61 million, and just two years later it shot up to $114 million.

"Wow! That is not bad beans for a meager public servant. They [Pelosi and her husband] must be master investors and it just took getting elected to public office to truly unlock that secret," Glenn quipped. "Or they were privy to some sort of information that the rest of us don't have access to, kinda like the sale of $5 million in computer chip stock before Congress voted on a recent semiconductor bill," he continued.

"But, surely, Taiwan has nothing to do with their own little private cash machine, right? ... I'm sure it had nothing to do with her husband's stock trading of companies that make computer chips. And it has nothing to do with, at the same time, Nancy is working on a semiconductor bill. It surely has nothing to do with the fact that the largest semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, is right there in Taiwan, right? I mean, surely, with all of this heat, Nancy Pelosi would be smart enough not to be seen anywhere near Taiwan's semiconductor manufacturers," Glenn said.

"I'm not saying this might double the Pelosis' millions again, but I'm not not saying that either, you know?" he added.



On the radio program, Glenn continued to break down the hushed business deals between the Pelosi family and Taiwanese companies and revealed how it all directly relates to their not-at-all suspicious trip to the Asian nation.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

Photo by (Left) Win McNamee/ (Right) Bettmann /Contributor/Getty Images

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
