IMUS: Scam, what does that mean? How do you start things with scam?

GLENN: Because I think that's what it is. I think this is some sort of scam. I don't know. This cancer camp, you're giving the kids cancer.

IMUS: By the way, walking in this 18,000 square feet that you have here in your radio fife Dom and talk about a scam, do we have enough pictures of you around what is that?

GLENN: Well, you know, sometimes you forgot who you are. You know?

IMUS: I mean, you know 18,000 square feet. You need some blackboard and some Kleenex.

GLENN: Wait a minute. How is this turning around on me here?

IMUS: I never heard you on the radio because I'm on WABC radio, as you probably know.

GLENN: And I'm on WOR radio.

IMUS: I do the morning show.

GLENN: Thank you. WOR thanks you for that.

GLENN: Sure.

IMUS: Are you on the AM dial, are you? How do you your TV, show, of course, I watch that all the time.

IMUS: How does it translate to radio? How

GLENN: What the hell is this? We're here talking we're talking about



The Imus Ranch Record II

IMUS: Where are the black boards?

GLENN: We're talking about this scam of a record. I don't even know what it look. He gave this to me. Stop the music. I can't take it anymore. Don says to me I come into his television studio at the FOX Business Network, which is a cute little, it's a cute little network that you've it's a cute network you've got.

IMUS: Hey, listen, it's better than where I came from.

GLENN: I asked him before we went on the air, I said, what was the last time you were in somebody else's radio studio and he responded

IMUS: Al Sharpton's.

GLENN: And I hope that this interview goes as well. So

IMUS: What do I push to cough?

GLENN: The one that's marked cough.

IMUS: Okay. It didn't work.

GLENN: No. So, Don

IMUS: 50 million a year and he can't get a cough switch.

GLENN: Here's the thing, because we don't usually have people that come in with their own nursing staff.

IMUS: That's what I need. That's the truth.

Glenn: I was in the studio with him and he gave me this CD and he said, you're not going to listen to it. And I said, yes. I will. Now, here's the thing. Here's the truth. I wasn't going to listen to it by choice. I was going to listen to it because my wife likes country music

IMUS: Sure.

GLENN: So, I was going to give it to my wife and then I listen to whatever my wife puts on because I'm too

IMUS: I'm sure you do.

GLENN: Because I'm too beaten down to argue.

IMUS: Which number wife is this, by the way?

GLENN: It's 2.

IMUS: Oh, okay. I'm on my second.

GLENN: All right. Good for you. And yours is trying to kill you.

IMUS: Really? You're kidding.

GLENN: Oh, come on. (Laughter.) Oh, please. I have cancer. You know, here's what we do, Don, we don't treat it. We don't treat it with any kind of medicine. That's witch doctory.

IMUS: I looked in the closet. There's all these party hats and favors. I said, what's this for? Oh, don't worry about it.

GLENN: All right. So, I gave this to my wife and I said, Don gave this to me and she said, oh, and she put it on the counter and we haven't listened to it.

IMUS: You haven't listened it to?

GLENN: No, I haven't listened to it.

IMUS: It's a hit record.

GLENN: It is, like, the second best selling in

IMUS: Yeah, it was. It's in the top 10. So, it's a big record.

GLENN: And this is you got together and you said

IMUS: The premise is somebody came to me, Tracy Gershon. Names mean nothing, but he's Randy Travis' producer. I came to me and he said, five, six years ago, he said, why don't you come up with a bunch of songs and artists you like and we'll try to get them to do them and we'll put out a record. So, I did that with the first ranch record, which was a huge success.

GLENN: So this one can't this is obviously not doing as well which explains your appearance here.

IMUS: No. Why wouldn't I want aren't you on, like, 500 stations or something?

GLENN: Yeah, I know but, I mean, you're lowering your standards. You know that.

IMUS: No, I'm not. So, they said, let's do another one. Well, now the there's a record on this by Jamey Johnson. I suggested to him he do a cover of Meatloaf's 2 Out Of 3 Ain't Bad. It's a great record. It's a hit record itself on outlaw country and

GLENN: So now you are all the proceeds go to

IMUS: Don't talk over the vocal. Okay?

GLENN: I'll try not to. See, this is my first time hearing it.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: Okay. Now, how many people hang themselves after, (Laughter), because right now I'm thinking, Stu, bring me a chair and a rope, will you? All right. Well, there's a pick me up. I mean, that's a if you think you have cancer, you run out and get his CD right away. It's going to make you feel so much better.

IMUS: Notice I didn't deliver the second (Laughter) and put this on. (Laughter.) You are such a jerk. Oh, gosh that's a hit record. What are you talking about?

GLENN: I didn't get a chance to listen to too much of it. I'm going to save the rest of it for later, because that's

IMUS: I'm here to promote your book. Let me see how it's doing. I brought my iPad. I have Amazon. Broke is doing pretty well, No. 4.

GLENN: No. 4

IMUS: I wonder where O'Reilly's book is.

GLENN: This is what he does.

IMUS: No, no.

GLENN: Here he goes. Here he goes. Here he goes. He's trying to cause trouble. That's all he does.

IMUS: Glenn is No. 4. Let's scroll down.

GLENN: Bill was out, what, four weeks before me.

IMUS: Let's scroll down for Bill's. Oh, wow. It's way down here.

GLENN: See what I mean?

IMUS: Still scrolling, still scrolling. Oh, here it is. Pinheads and Patriots, No. 19. So

GLENN: How have you been successful pissing off everybody for, what, 300 years now?

IMUS: Sometimes it catches up with you. How did O'Reilly convince you to, other than money, because we now how greedy you are?

GLENN: Yes. That's me.

IMUS: How was he able to convince you to go on a do the speaking tour named after one of his dopey books? I kind of like that, by the way.

GLENN: I actually like Bill.

IMUS: I do, too.

GLENN: And it's never a stupid thing to get in stand next to the king. Do you know what I mean?

IMUS: Yeah.

Glenn: And he called me up and had the idea and I said, What's the name of it? And he said and I said, That's your book. I've got a book out.

IMUS: Do you call him the king?

GLENN: Don't you think he is? You don't think he's the king of cable?

IMUS: Okay. Well, fine, all right, but

GLENN: Well, no, no. Answer the question. You don't? If he's not the king of cable, who's the king of cable?

IMUS: I think there's two or three guys that might qualify for that.

GLENN: The king of cable?

IMUS: I think there could be you, there could be Hannity. You don't like Hannity, do you?

GLENN: There he goes again. I have no problem with Sean Hannity. I have no problem with Sean Hannity.

IMUS: Have you ever noticed that O'Reilly never introduces Hannity?

GLENN: This is this is

IMUS: Like the guy who comes on before

GLENN: This is the reason why almost everyone in the industry wants him destroyed. They're praying every night they get down and they're, like, Will you speed up the cancer thing and all?

IMUS: Like Cavuto, he says, you know, why would he say you're coming up? And then Bret Baier, doesn't he come on after you? He always references you, but

GLENN: He never references me.

IMUS: He doesn't?

GLENN: No, no. Are you asleep or are you asleep by 6:00 o'clock or out at the old people's cafe eating, you know, the early bird specials?

IMUS: That's at 3:00 o'clock we have dinner. Then we try to get the gravy off our clothes.

GLENN: Let me tell you this. Let me tell you a story.

IMUS: A voice of wisdom, by the way.

GLENN: I know. It's a fascinating story, especially the way you tell it. When you, when you fell off the horse years ago, you were

IMUS: Can I explain something to you, bucko? I didn't fall off the horse. You make it sound like I'm on a pony ride at Disney World. I got bucked off a horse.

GLENN: No. You were at a pony ride at some cancer camp and one of the sick kids, you were, like, hold the rope. Walk a little faster! And then the pony bucked you off and you I don't know. What's the question?

GLENN: The question is, Pat and I, Pat and I have been together for years. Pat and I

IMUS: Do you know why Pat's here? The money. Look at that. That's it.

GLENN: That's it. I don't even know if Pat's here for the money. Pat's questioning himself every day, why the hell am I here?

PAT: I wish I knew why I was here.

GLENN: Do you remember what we did?

PAT: Yeah. I think we sent

GLENN: We sent a huge I don't know floral bouquet with a very nice note.

PAT: They were competitors at the time.

GLENN: Nothing from you, nothing.

IMUS: The engineers at FAM, where I was at the time, they sent flowers to the horse.

(Laughter.)

IMUS: Anyway.

GLENN: Well, Don, the Imus Ranch Record 2.

IMUS: It's available everywhere.

GLENN: Tell me who is on it. Cheap trick is play Cut 4.

IMUS: Imus Ranch Record, proceeds for kids with cancer.

GLENN: Seriously.

IMUS: It's a great record. This is a great record. It's not Elvis, but Elvis is dead.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: This is Cheap Trick. So, when you're swinging this is the fourth track? You're swinging now from the rope there. You're just swinging back and forth.

IMUS: You're this is not helping me.

GLENN: You may have thought to yourself, I should have waited for Cheap Trick. Then again you might have thought to yourself, No. This isn't worth waiting for.

IMUS: We're not doing the eye scam now? Are you still going blind?

GLENN: Really? The eye scam? Is that what it is?

IMUS: Are you still going blind, by the way?

GLENN: I still have the same condition, yeah, macular

IMUS: When does it kick in? When do we get the dog and the piano?

GLENN: Play cut 12.

IMUS: What is that?

GLENN: Delbert McClinton.

IMUS: This is great.

GLENN: You said the last two were great. For the love of do you know what you are? You're my grandfather. You're my grandfather in his old 1971 truck playing the country and western.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: You don't play this for the kids, do you? Do any of the kids look at you and go, please, I'm dying, too. I've got cancer.

IMUS: Play Cut 11. This is the official ranch song that we make all of the kids I swear to God learn the lyrics to. You've got to listen for

GLENN: Isn't spending the summer with you enough punishment?

IMUS: It could be amusing or it could not. Good story. A Warren Zevon song.

GLENN: What do you do to these kids?

(Music playing.)

IMUS: The kids learn the words to this.

GLENN: They're praying for death.

IMUS: That's the official Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer ranch song.

GLENN: He's not kidding.

IMUS: No, I am not kidding. I'm not kidding at all.

GLENN: You have a bunch of eight years old all singing about strung out on cancer?

IMUS: No. They're between 11 and 17.

GLENN: That's your personal business and I don't think we need to talk about it. Lets take a quick break.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
