GLENN: I want to play one of the worst campaign ads I think I've ever, ever heard. If you were like me and thought Shirley Sherrod deserved no should demand an apology, listen to this campaign ad.

GRAYSON: I'm congressman Alan Grayson and I approved this message.

VOICE: Religious fanatics try to take away our freedom in Afghanistan, in Iran, and right here in Central Florida.

WEBSTER: Wives submit yourselves to your own husbands.

VOICE: Daniel Webster wants to impose his radical fundamentalism on us.

WEBSTER: She should submit to me. That's in the Bible.

VOICE: Webster tried to deny battered women medical care and the right to divorce their abusers.

WEBSTER: Submit to me.

VOICE: He wants to force raped women to bear the child.

WEBSTER: Submit to me.

VOICE: Taliban Dan Webster, hands off our bodies and our laws.

PAT: Whew.

GLENN: That is an incredible ad. You have a candidate saying women must submit to their husbands, submit to me. That's an incredible statement. Accurate. It is in the Bible, but is that, that the way people live their lives? Is that their understanding of that phrase? Is that this guy's understanding of this phrase? That's incredible. Taliban Dan indeed. Unless you care to look at the entire statement. Now, this isn't lost videotape. This isn't videotape that, oh, well, that was an hour later in the speech. Let's just listen to what he said in context.

WEBSTER: A journal, second? Find a verse. I have a verse for my wife. I have verses for my wife: Don't pick the ones that say she should submit to me. That's in the Bible, but pick the ones that you're supposed to do.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Do you understand what just happened? Don't pick the verses like she must submit to me. It's in the Bible, but pick the ones you're supposed to do. Do you hear that?


TheBlaze: Grayson is more awful than we thought

STU: Yeah. And, you know, the audio gets cut off a little bit there, but he goes on to say, you know, instead pick the ones like love your wife even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it, as opposed to wives submit to your own husbands. And that's where he picks it. As opposed he takes out, as opposed to and just plays wives submits to their own husbands. That's incredible.

PAT: This attack ad, I don't know if we've mentioned yet, is from Alan Grayson.

GLENN: Alan Grayson. I don't

PAT: One of the most despicable people.

GLENN: I don't know how Alan Grayson wins.

PAT: How he lives with himself. I don't know how he lives and sleeps at night.

STU: If your wife or daughter started dating a guy like this, you would cry. You would cry yourself to sleep at night. He's a horrible person, horrible. I mean, that's not just a bad politician. That's horrible.

GLENN: No, no, I don't think that I've ever seen anybody in congress as bad as Alan Grayson, I mean as a person.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, I don't know him. I just know his words, and there's they're not we're not taking we're not taking him out of context. We're looking at his words and the things that he has said and done, and there is no limit to this man. There is no floor

STU: No.

GLENN: to this man. There's no place that he is unwilling to go.

PAT: And it's interesting because even when it was brought up that, hey, you took that way out of context and made it and they even edited the part where he's talking about it's in the Bible a little bit to make it fit better into the statement, to make it sound like that's what he was saying. When that was brought up to him, they still defended the ad.

STU: Yeah. It's not

PAT: They didn't back off from it one iota.

STU: It's not like he was saying we didn't have this one video, that's not all he said. They are standing by that that's okay to do.

PAT: Do you have their comment, the comment from the campaign?

STU: Yeah. Give me one second. I'll pull it up here.

PAT: It is unbelievable. They're standing by, taking him out of context. And is this not what everybody was screaming, the Democrats were screaming during the Jeremiah Wright period? "You're taking him out of context! Sound bites, it's a sound bite world!" When you take somebody out of context, that means that you change the meaning of what they're trying to say. That was never done to Jeremiah Wright. That's absolutely what was done here with Daniel Webster.

STU: Yeah. Here's the campaign spokesman for Grayson: The Taliban is an extremist government regime that forced its crazy rightwing views on the populous it governs. If elected Dan Webster would force his crazy rights extreme crazy rightwing views on Central Florida.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So here's the thing, Central Florida.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: You just have to ask yourself this one thing: We can disagree on policies. We can. You can be for healthcare, you can you know, you can be for bigger government, but is there any shame? Is there anything? Do you just accept any character because your side will win? You know, I who was it that said last week when they were talking about, you know, the guy in Delaware, that he should have won because, well, the Republicans would have definitely won in Delaware? Who was it that said, well, when? Or what? Win without values and character and the integrity and the principles that we all uphold or strive for, what is it what is that win worth? This is the kind of thing that Americans need to be striving for now. We can disagree, but we have to be able to tell the truth. When America said they wanted hope and change, I wanted hope and change, too, from the Bush administration. I didn't like the way the Bush administration was handling things. We can unite on that, but you can't have somebody like Alan Grayson in office. It's it's reprehensible. It really is. Do we have that little respect for our republic? Do we really have that little respect for the congress? I mean, I know congress is unpopular, but why? Because of this! Are we going to restore it or not? Not talking about policies. Just talking about character. Does character matter? The answer is yes.

One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

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.
