GLENN: You got to be kidding me, Harry Reed still has a job today? I mean really seriously? I'm thinking about taking a shovel and just digging Nevada out. Just come on, seriously. We'll dig all the way to China if we have to and there's a giant Nevada sized hole in the earth. Come on, we can make water slides out of it and everything else. We can do something with the dirt. Hey, I know. Wouldn't this be great? We can take all the dirt from Nevada and make another state on the western side of California so they lose all that beachfront property.

PAT: Not a bad idea.

GLENN: We can have a conservative state that says what's the hell the is wrong with you California? It could be great we could kill two birds with one stone. May I just say this, what the hell is wrong with you, California?!

Jerry Brown, I would like to today, could you just find out, you know, protocol and everything else because I don't want to do anything to desecrate the flag, but I would like to cut the California star off the flag today. Just in advance. Just in advance because California, what you have now done is you have sealed your fate. If I were living in California because I thought about it this morning in New York. If I were living in California and I was running a business, I would box up all of our stuff and I would put it in a truck and I would drive it well, not to Nevada where would I drive it to? Some place other than a progressive state. California with Jerry Brown, Barbara Boxer. At least they didn't vote for the pot. What else did they do yesterday? You have just guaranteed that you are going to become the first federal state. There will be 49 stars on the flag and what, an extra stripe? What do we do for California? Should we erase the stars as you collapse? Do we take your star off and do we all own you? Because you're not separate anymore, you're not in the union field because you are a federal property. We'll all own you and I have news for you, I ain't bailing your ass out if you are voting for Jerry Brown and these policies, I ain't bailing your ass out. Will you? Stu, will you?

Stu: No, I don't think we should be bailing them out at all.


PAT: No but I'm not gonna have any choice. If it's this administration when the collapse happens, you know they're going to bail them out.

STU: They're gonna do it anyway.

GLENN: If it's this administration? This administration is practically pulling up and giving limos to everybody in California. I mean, why do you think that this administration won't help that collapse?

STU: Your point was if the collapse occurs in the next two years or let's not say the word six years, but some time in that general near term.

GLENN: Is there any chance that the collapse of California does not happen in the next two to six years?

STU: Sure, there's a chance.

GLENN: I'm sorry just hang on just a second. OW! Man, a monkey was just climbing out of my butt. [ Laughter ] and just flew away.

STU: I'm glad.

GLENN: Jeez!

STU: It's very difficult to predict the future. As you pointed out 100 million times, time lines are the most difficult part to predict of the future. So who knows was going to happen? You know, they certainly don't help themselves. The global warming thing where they were going to delay these disastrous economic policies.

GLENN: Failed.

STU: Failed. Not even close.

GLENN: How do you do all of those things, but you say no to pot? The pot is the easiest one to say yes on. The pot makes it possible for to you say I think Jerry Brown would be great, man, his policies, uh... uh...

PAT: It also helps mask how bad everything is, once he takes over.

GLENN: Yeah, that's what Marvin did. How did you say no to pot but you said yes to everything else?

PAT: Doesn't make any sense.

GLENN: You must be destroyed.

PAT: Was that the dinosaur again?

GLENN: I don't even know what that was. It's more like Arnold Schwarzenegger but he tried even the Terminator tried to destroy it and couldn't do it. Maybe they are indestructible.

STU: That's the point. They made a lot of bad decisions for a really long time to say it will happen this year. Next year, who knows it. It could be another four years, or eight or twelve. But they will continue to make bad decisions.

GLENN: Do you know what they need? What they need is higher spending and higher taxes.

PAT: That's a good idea. Try that one.

GLENN: I bet they will.

PAT: Oh they will.

GLENN: And then what they'll do, is they'll just seize it. They'll start yelling at these companies. These companies, they have money. They just won't part with it.

PAT: They need to get them out of the state of California. Get all the big corporations out of there. Get Silicon Valley out of there.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
