GLENN: There's also a couple of things going around and I am so sick of my

own staff going, "Did you see Jon Stewart last night?" No, I didn't. I didn't

see it. I don't care. He was on Letterman. When was the last time I watched

David Letterman? I don't even know. David Letterman is so irrelevant that it's

laughable. So no, I didn't. But I think that was one of the first things that

Pat said to me this morning: Did you see Letterman last night? Come on, Pat, you

didn't see Letterman.

PAT: No, I didn't see it.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I'm hearing about it on Mediaite.

GLENN: Uh huh.

PAT: But they wrote a great story about his appearance because they're saying

that Stewart seems fairly obsessed with you because he's talked about you now on

his appearances on Oprah, O'Reilly, and last night with David Letterman and, you

know, because there's several minutes. Here's just a little bit of what they had

to say about you yesterday.

STEWART: You know how we used to be on the road and we would do the same act

night after night.

VOICE: Right. On the road? Hell, I'm doing it here.

PAT: That's for sure.

GLENN: That's a great line.

PAT: Happens to be true.

GLENN: Yeah.

VOICE: But you do the same thing night after night but you've got to make it

seem like it just came to you. The whole trick of his show is, folks, it's just

we are... (laughing).

GLENN: Very funny.

VOICE: We... (laughing). If we could just go back to 1979. Did you see, this was

the greatest thing. This is when I realized how much I love this guy. He does

the program, he's sitting on his

GLENN: I don't think he does.

PAT: I don't think he loves this guy. He loves making money off of you. He does

love that.

VOICE: Weeping for do you remember the old Coke commercial with Mean Joe Green?

VOICE: Sure.

VOICE: Where he says have a Coke? And he says, that's okay. And the little boy

goes, come on, take it. And Mean Joe Green finally is like, all right, kid,

takes it and then he throws him the Jersey, comes back to Glenn and... why can't

we go back there? Politicians won't take you back there. And I'm like, I think

we can't go back there because it's fictional. I think it's a fictional

commercial. And then I remembered I think they taped it in 1979 which is when

the Iranian hostage crisis was. So I guess we could go back there. But why would

we want to?

VOICE: Exactly.

VOICE: And that's when I realized, he made that fictional moment.

VOICE: He's Bobby Heenan. Come on. He's Bobby Heenan.

VOICE: I like him. I want to have him on my program.

GLENN: I don't know who Bobby Heenan is.

PAT: No idea.

VOICE: We have invited him numerous times to be on this show. He will not come

on this show.

VOICE: I invited myself onto his program and did not come on.

GLENN: I wear those both as a badge of honor.

PAT: And you should.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean

PAT: The reference to Bobby Heenan or whatever, whoever he's talking about there

is a really good reason not to go on Letterman's irrelevant show. Nobody knows

who Bobby Heenan is.

GLENN: Doesn't matter. Look, David Letterman, you know, he doesn't believe, I

believe, in anything I say. I don't believe in the things that he believes in.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, why would I go there?

PAT: It's a useless exercise.

GLENN: I don't believe

PAT: In futility.

GLENN: Yeah, I don't believe in boycotting anything. I just believe in this: I

spend my money and my time in things that I believe in. I don't believe in David

Letterman. David Letterman does what David Letterman does. He's funny sometimes,

he's I don't know honestly, David, I don't know how you do it every day. I don't

know how you are still doing the top 10 and you don't think, really? Again? I'm

doing this? I mean, I don't know how you do that.

PAT: It's only been 30 years.

GLENN: Yeah. But, you know, that's cool and I have nothing I don't want him off

the air, I don't want to silence him, nothing. Whatever. It just plays no time

in my life because I spend my time and my money on the things that are important

to me. David Letterman isn't.

On the Jon Stewart, I'm just trying to think. This week, let's see. I've had the

Holocaust survivor and the historian on as a guest this week. I'm trying to

think where the comedian comes in. I mean, I just don't do those interviews.

PAT: The comedian selling a book, where does that fit in? Yeah.

GLENN: He wants to sell his books and I think it's interesting that no one in

the press has said that he's doing a political rally just to make money, yet

that's all that you ever heard about me. That's all you ever heard. And that's

okay. I mean, I have no problem with him making money. He's got a book for sale.

Go buy the book. Don't buy the book. I'm not buying the book. I don't really

care about the book. I don't want to ban the book. I don't want anybody to not

read the book because that's what whatever. You know, neither of these guys need

a handout.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But apparently they both believe they need a hand up in their ratings or

their book sales. Sorry. Can't provide it for ya.

PAT: But what I found interesting about this Mediaite article was the last part

of it where they're talking about the exchange between Letterman and Stewart

last night where it says Beck becomes the subject of conversation between host

and guest in a manner that ostensibly seems friendly but really puts Beck in a

most unflattering light. There is a whiff of junior high cool kids picking on

the new kid who's suddenly the most popular behind his back. That is exactly,

exactly how that came off.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."
