Learn more about Glenn Beck's Broke


Coming Tuesday, Oct 26th

GLENN: All right. Let me go back to the let me go back to the debate from the

other night because this gets into a constitutional debate with what's his name,

Coons.

PAT: Chris Coons and Christine O'Donnell.

GLENN: The guy who's definitely not a Marxist.

PAT: No, he was it was a joke.

GLENN: He was kidding.

PAT: You could read that and

GLENN: And he, you know, he's a complete capitalist just like Barack Obama is.

Exactly the same.

PAT: Oh, yes. Yes.

GLENN: Exactly the same. Do you remember how people said that Barack Obama was a

Marxist?

PAT: That's silly.

GLENN: So stupid.

PAT: Silly.

GLENN: An they are just so unevolved.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: But anyway, so they're having a he's having a debate, Coons and

O'Donnell, and here's what happens in the debate.

COONS: principles is the separation of church and State.

VOICE: Okay, with that very

O'DONNELL: Where in the Constitution is separation of church and state?

VOICE: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Listen to the mocking.

GLENN: Listen to the mocking.

PAT: laughter.

GLENN: What she said was, where do you find the separation of church and state

in the Constitution?

PAT: In the Constitution.

GLENN: Play it again because listen to the crowd.

PAT: It's amazing.

VOICE: (Ckaudio) principles is the separation of church and state.

VOICE: Okay, with that, very

O'DONNELL: Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?

(Laughter).

GLENN: Listen to that.

PAT: I mean

GLENN: Listen to that. And somebody even says, excuse my language, but somebody

even says, oh, my God.

PAT: Like, what an idiot.

GLENN: Like, what a dope.

PAT: This person's running for office?

GLENN: It's not in the Constitution! It's not in any federal document! None! Not

one! Not a thousand! None!

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, what is so funny about asking that question? It is the fundamental

principle of our country. It is one of the founding principles! It is the

establishment clause that the government shall not make any laws establishing

religion.

PAT: Establishing a religion.

GLENN: Or

PAT: Prohibiting

GLENN: Prohibiting.

PAT: the free exercise thereof.

GLENN: Exactly. So what do you have? You cannot make the federal government

cannot make an official religion, and they cannot pass any law to stop the free

exercise of that religion. Well, let me ask you something. How exactly does the

state take a child away from a family that believes in a different kind of

medical procedure? I mean, that is as far out there as you can get. But tell me

in the Constitution how they do it. Now, the State can. The State can.

(Laughing).

PAT: Dumb.

GLENN: Read the Constitution of Massachusetts and it will blow your mind.

PAT: I get a kick out of these people who say, read the Constitution.

GLENN: These people

PAT: Why would I read the Constitution?

GLENN: These people are so ignorant, the I'm sorry, but it is time to call a

spade a spade. The progressive left is ignorant and underinformed. And it's self

imposed, self inflicted ignorance.

STU: Yeah. I mean, obviously the phrase "Separation of church and State" does

not appear in the Constitution. We sustained the cause

PAT: Neither is the concept.

STU: As you pointed out, the establishment is the big thing there.

PAT: Yep.

STU: But I think the basis of this is that to conservatives today, the phrase

"Separation of church and state" means how it's being treated. Like, you can't

have the Ten Commandments in a building. You can't have Santa Claus at a school

play. And, you know, to liberals they're trying to make it seem like, you know,

we think that the government should start a theocracy, which is obviously has

nothing to do with what conservatives want.

GLENN: But see, this is what they've done. What they've done is "She's a witch"

to discredit her with all of the Christians. "She's a witch." And then when she

get her in front of the public because people aren't "She's a witch? What? We're

going to elect Harry Potter? What?" So discredit her on that.

And then in the most incredible only the stupid don't figure this out. She's a

witch and she's so Christian, she wants to jam this down your throat!

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: That makes no sense except to stupid people!

STU: The same stuff they do to you all the time, though.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: You're faking it. You're this crazy faking guy, oh, Lonesome Roads." And

then statement, "He's a crazy man. He believes all this stuff. He's a crazy

racist."

GLENN: "He's trying to make everybody into a Mormon. That's what he's doing. He

believes it, but he's so fake, he's only doing it for bucks." Which is it,

brother?

STU: Pick one.

GLENN: Which is it?

STU: Pick one.

PAT: And they get away with it. They get away with it.

GLENN: Why? Because of stupid, uninformed people that still are trusting these

so called leaders. They are leading you to slaughter. They are leading you to

slaughter and slavery! Where else does it end? You become so dependent on them,

you take everything they say as gospel. They are lying to you!

So where does that end? It ends with, "That's not even in the document." Read

the damn document! No, no, no. "No, read the document. I get a kick out of these

people who say read the document."

PAT: I might understand it if I actually did that. Who wants to do that? Not me.


 

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.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.
