Glenn Beck: Can we avoid going broke?



Learn more about Glenn Beck's Broke


Coming Tuesday, Oct 26th

("Broke" promo)

GLENN: Have you guys read it? Have you read it yet? Stu, have you read it?

STU: I have not read it yet, no.

GLENN: Because usually we I mean, I'm not tell you anything that you don't know. Clearly I'm not sitting at the old Smith Corona, you know, pounding these things out. We write our books the way, you know, a lot of people write their books like Jon Stewart. We work as a team. And I think this is the first book that we've worked on, Stu, that you haven't really

STU: Yeah, no.

GLENN: worked on.

STU: Other than planning meetings and stuff at the beginning, no, I did not. So I'm interested to read it. Comes out October 26. Can't wait to buy it.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: I'll be there first in line.

GLENN: You want to leave now to go stand in front of the bookstore here in New York?

STU: You know what? I do, and I will. I'll be more than happy to leave now.

GLENN: No, no, we'll have somebody there. Are you saying that living on the streets of New York for a week is better than working here?

STU: Yes, I am saying that. Specifically.

GLENN: Have you read this one yet, Pat?

PAT: No.

GLENN: This is really, probably the meatiest book we've ever done. We were really you know, we're proud of everything we do. Otherwise we wouldn't put it out. But we've been really proud of the meat in especially books like Common Sense and Arguing With Idiots. Arguing With Idiots and An Inconvenient Book, those things are really, they're still, they're reference guides.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: We use them all the time. Something will happen in the news and we're like, wait a minute, wasn't that in Inconvenient Book? We'll look it up and all the stats are there. But this one, Kevin, do you have any kind of example of the difference between stats in this or the difference in meat in this compared to the other books that we've done? Kevin Balfe, by the way, runs the book division of the company.

KEVIN: I mean, this one I would say the difference in putting this one together was how much you pushed us towards kind of getting this council together of experts. I mean, the other ones were really research intensive, but this one was like, okay, if we were doing the history part, it was, you know, sit down with five history professors who we trusted and not only ask for all their information but then where they got their information. And then go to those reference books. And really just kind of follow this trail. So to me between the three parts, we've got past, present and future. I think we spent more time in the development and research page of this book than any of the other books probably combined.

GLENN: Probably. This has taken us over a year to write, hasn't it?

KEVIN: Oh, between all the meetings and remember those dinners we were having in New York at least a year ago.

GLENN: Yeah, it comes out next week. And I know people say, oh, my gosh, he just cranks books out. We don't crank them we do not crank them out. We've been working on this one for over a year.

PAT: This is only the 19th book this year. It's the 19th book to come out this year. We do not crank these out.

GLENN: Well, no, we don't crank them out.

PAT: We don't.

GLENN: We make a lot of them.

PAT: I mean, Nineteen books in a year.

GLENN: We do make a lot of them, but we don't crank them out.

PAT: That's less that's less than two per month.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: So when it's under two a month

GLENN: Is this the last one that's going to be like this for a while, isn't it? Kevin? Because we're working believe it or not, we're working on five different books right now. In fact, during the break I was just giving final edits for another book that is coming out next year, early next year that is I'll just give you the tell you what we're working on. Early next year, after Broke, early next year there is more of a self help book. What is the name of this one? Have we decided on the name yet?

KEVIN: We have. It's called The Seven.

GLENN: The Seven. And it is the seven things that you have to do, seven things that will change your life. And I'm co writing that one with Dr. Keith Ablow. It's going to be a great book. Then after that our first children's history book. And this one's written by several historians with us, but it's totally different than anything else you've ever seen. This one is not about American heroes. This is which American hero are you? The story behind the hero stories. And then your children figure out which one am I like? It's amazing. That's coming out.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
