GLENN: Looking at Stu's got his face in

Broke.

STU: I do. This is my first I just got this copy, Page 329 talks about your

admiral, admiral thing here.

GLENN: Yeah. I have the raw stats from I didn't look. Where is it in the book?

STU: 329. The department this is talking, defense department is typical of all

government entities that has become too bloated and top heavy. The department

currently consumes about 40% of its annual bunt in overhead costs. Goes through

some other stats here and then it talks about the Navy where there are now more

admirals, 315 flag officers than ships.

PAT: 315 admirals.

GLENN: Flag officers, yeah.

STU: Flag officers. 264 ships.

PAT: I thought there was like one admiral. I thought there was, you know, like

or at least a couple, you know.

STU: That's like companies because there's one vice president of the United

States. But every company has, like, 50 vice presidents of something.

GLENN: Well, you need admiral. I mean, let's not I don't want this to seem like

we're coming down hard on the military, because we're not.

STU: No.

GLENN: The military is the only thing in the federal government that actually

works. And the only reason why when it doesn't work is because the politicians

get involved.

STU: Sure.

Coming Tuesday, Oct 26th

GLENN: That's the only reason really.

STU: Yeah. And obviously you can't have, like, exactly the amount of admirals

than ships because when one's sick, they should still be able to go out and do

stuff.

GLENN: You don't have an admiral on every ship, though.

STU: Well, why not? Why wouldn't you have an admiral on every ship?

PAT: You have captains. They have captains of ships.

GLENN: That's my point. We don't need, we don't need the same number of admirals

as we do ships. What I'm saying here is look, I'm not a I'm not a military guy.

STU: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: But I for this, for this book, for this particular chapter on defense, we

talked to some really, really great military guys and we also talked to people

like what's his name from Blackwater and said, you know, if you're going to run

it like a private company, how do you do it? And so these are, these are out of

the you know, these are different ideas. But it's going to take a different idea

to be able to run our country and to be able to change and move in the direction

that we need to move in.

STU: I'm interested in your case on this. I have not read it yet, but this is a

case that you and I argue about a lot.

GLENN: Yeah, because you're like, no, I want to keep spending money on defense,

I want to keep spending money on defense.

STU: Yeah. That's the one place I don't want to cut anything from.

GLENN: Right. And I don't, either, because I believe in strong defense.

STU: Right, I know you do.

GLENN: But there are things that we can do.

STU: And still keep, still keep it working as well as we need it to. I

understand. I like to see

GLENN: I haven't read honestly I haven't read the book since the final edits and

we were, like, 300 pages, typical Glenn book, like 300 pages over. Is the did

they leave the did they leave the idea of just, you know, just changing the

planes that are flying over Afghanistan? Right now we can you know, we do

patrols, and if you just changed from a jet to a prop plane, in six months in

fuel costs alone you still have the jets, you know, if you have to do dogfights

but we're not really dogfighting anybody. So if you change to props and have the

jets on the ground so if something happens, you can get those, you scramble the

jets. But if you just changed to prop planes, in six months in just fuel cost

savings, you could pay for the prop planes. And then leave the prop planes there

for the Afghani defense. So then you train them in prop planes and then we take

our big sophisticated jets home.

STU: Yeah, that is on there, Page 328 I'm being told.

GLENN: I mean, so I mean, it's good stuff.

STU: What if you go with hang gliders?

GLENN: Common sense.

STU: If you go with hang gliders, you'd save even more money and then you could

just have people just jump off those really tall mountains down there and just

fly across the

PAT: Goat, if you just had them ride the backs of goats.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

PAT: I mean, then you're

GLENN: Quite honestly at this point, yes.

PAT: I don't care, really.

GLENN: I'm willing take our military out and let them patrol with goats or hang

gliders or whatever they want to do.

STU: What about goats on hang gliders? I'm saying

GLENN: That's up to the people in Afghanistan. You know, it's time we did not

unleash our military and we discredit our military by not allowing them to do

their job. We discredit the honor and integrity and the memory of all those who

have lost their lives. How many lives have we lost because we didn't fight it,

really fight it? And this is a lie that comes again from the progressive left.

That, no, you can't fight because you'll just make things worse. Did we make

things worse in Germany? We burned Dresden down to the ground. Did we in the end

make it worse for Germans or better for Germans? Which was it?

You know what we do you know what we do to our military now? We make them into

the neutered parents that we have here in America. "Well, we don't keep score.

No, we shouldn't keep score. Well, no, no, no, don't spank your kids. No, don't

discipline your kids. Just sit down and talk to your kids. Find out what's wrong

with your kids, what they're thinking, what you've done wrong really. As a

parent you've probably screwed up your kids."

PAT: Do you know how many times they hear the word "No" by the time they're 2?

STU: Not enough.

PAT: It's like 5,000 times. No one can handle that negativity, no one.

STU: 500 times too few.

PAT: No one.

GLENN: That's what we're doing.

PAT: That's the kind of nonsense we hear.

GLENN: And that's the kind of nonsense that we're now running our military with.

And it's come from the same source, the progressive left politician. Stop.

Enough. You want to you want a plan to restore our trust, our truth and our

treasure. Broke is available in bookstores everywhere on Tuesday. You can order

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
