GLENN: 888-727-BECK. Let's go to Al in West Palm Beach. Hello, Al.
CALLER: Hey, Glenn.
GLENN: Hey, Al.
CALLER: How are you, buddy?
GLENN: Good, how are you?
CALLER: Did you ever do something in your life that you were somewhat forced
into doing? Well, that's what's happening to me today, and I hate, I hate being
forced into this.
GLENN: Oh, my.
CALLER: And my dear old wife was the one to dial the phone and put me --
GLENN: Dear old wife. Okay, so Al, hang on just a second.
GLENN: So you're experiencing a point in your life, and everyone experiences
these points, where you are doing something that you're forced to do, you don't
want to do but you feel you have to do it for one reason or another, you feel
you have to do it but you regret it?
CALLER: I regret it, especially today when you're being filed on by the --
GLENN: I know, I know.
PAT: Especially today.
GLENN: Especially today.
PAT: Especially today.
GLENN: So -- but you regret making this call but you feel it's something you
have to do. I understand that. Go ahead.
CALLER: And the reason why my -- the purpose of my call is to basically --
PAT: Of course it is.
CALLER: -- put my wife's mind at rest.
PAT: Oh, good.
GLENN: It's your wife. It's your wife. It's not you.
PAT: We're all in favor of that.
GLENN: All right. Well, go ahead.
PAT: Actually it's not you. It's her. Go ahead.
CALLER: Listen, you're my friend, I agree with 70% of what you said.
GLENN: Good. All right. Go ahead.
PAT: 75, 77?
GLENN: Stop. Now, go ahead. Go ahead.
GLENN: Shhh. Quiet. Let Al speak. Go ahead. So what is it you have to do?
CALLER: Anyway, listen. George Soros is a dirt ball. He wants to create an
economic socialist world utopia.
GLENN: No, it's not socialist. It's called an open society, but go ahead.
CALLER: Whatever. And so in order for him to do that, he has elevated some poor
countries to a certain level of financial wellbeing. You say that he has
destroyed the economies of X, Y and Z country.
GLENN: Yeah, four, four separate countries.
CALLER: Right. At the same time these countries today, if I'm -- I sit to be
corrected -- are in better financial shape than they were when he intervened.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second.
GLENN: No, not England. But let's -- I think I see what you're saying. What
you're saying is some of these countries that he collapsed, or he collapsed the
economies on, they were oppressive regimes.
GLENN: Exactly. And so you'd like me to point that out?
GLENN: Oh, okay. So in other words, in other words let me put your wife's mind
at ease. So in other words, do we happen to have the cut? What show is this
STU: It's from, you've got to go way back in history. It's from today.
PAT: How old were you today? I mean --
STU: From earlier today.
PAT: Think back. Who can remember what happened today.
GLENN: Well, I can't remember what happened today.
PAT: How old were you?
GLENN: I can't be held responsible for what I did today.
PAT: Earlier today, how old were you?
GLENN: I've been on the air for 37 minutes.
PAT: Please, this is ancient history.
GLENN: Let's go back in the last 37 minutes.
PAT: I protest.
GLENN: You think this is too --
PAT: This is too --
GLENN: Too far in the past?
PAT: Too far back. I don't even --
GLENN: Well, let's just show it for history. Here's what happened in the last 37
A man who is a hedge fund manager and has survived economic chaos, a man who has
brought down four regimes, nasty ones.
PAT: Oh, nasty ones.
GLENN: You mean like that, like me pointing out that those were nasty countries,
some of them.
PAT: You did that. But may I point out again?
PAT: That was about... 38 minutes ago?
GLENN: I can't be held responsible for what I said --
CALLER: Well, Glenn, you can be -- if you want, you know, if you want to make
fun of it, I'll laugh along with you. But if you want --
GLENN: I'm not making fun of it. No, no, I'm not laughing. I'm giving you the
CALLER: If you want to be fair and if I may put a -- if you want to be fair, in
the past couple of days you basically have painted with a great big, wide brush
as to his financial dealing, and as I say --
GLENN: No, I haven't talked about his financial dealings.
CALLER: Yes, you have.
GLENN: No, I haven't. I mean, I've mentioned his financial dealings. I've
mentioned that he makes -- you know, he's the 35th richest man in the world,
yes. I have talked about his hedge fund. I have not questioned how he makes his
money. I have questioned that he has made money off of the backs of the British
people and collapsed the British sterling which led to misery. I have played his
own words where he says, "Well, there were some unfortunate circumstances and
things that happened, you know, that you can't control. That's why I had to
experiment" with people's lives.
CALLER: Can I focus on two things that you said?
GLENN: That is fantastic. I'd love that, Al.
CALLER: For the past couple of days --
PAT: Just to put your wife's mind --
GLENN: Your wife's mind at ease.
PAT: -- at ease.
CALLER: For the past couple of days you have made fun of subversive tactics in
which Soros relished in the fact that he actually became involved in that.
CALLER: But if you -- the way you made it seem is that --
GLENN: No, hang on just a second. I didn't quote him, Al. I played the audio of
him saying subversive tactics.
CALLER: Play it again.
GLENN: Oh, okay. We can do that. Hang on just --
PAT: I'm going to play it again. Listen. Al.
PAT: We're going to play it again.
GLENN: Here it is, Al.
PAT: We're going to play it again, Al.
CALLER: Okay, guys, you can --
GLENN: You wanted to hear it again. Let's play it again.
SOROS: When you try to, let's say improve society, you affect different people
and different interests differently and they are not actually commensurate. So
you very often have all kinds of unintended adverse consequences. So I had to
experiment, and it was a learning process. The first part was this subversive
activity, disrupting the oppressive regimes. That was a lot of fun and that's
actually what got me hooked on this whole enterprise.
GLENN: Okay, go ahead, Al. So what's your point we just played?
CALLER: What was the operative word there?
GLENN: I don't know.
PAT: There were several.
GLENN: There was a lot of them.
PAT: Several operative words.
CALLER: The operative word, my friend, is repressive.
GLENN: Oh, man, Al, I never thought of that! What a great point! So that brings
us exactly right to the point, now, doesn't it? He has collapsed four -- Al, he
has collapsed four regimes, four. They're repressive. Could you tell me what the
biggest obstacle is to justice and peace in the new world order, what is the
biggest obstacle, sir, in his own words?
CALLER: May --
GLENN: Answer the question, Al. Answer the question. Have you -- put your wife
on the phone. Have her answer the question.
CALLER: I will answer your question if you allow me to expand a little bit. Will
you allow me that?
GLENN: Answer the question and then you may expand.
CALLER: Thank you. I will answer your question. He has stated, and this is why I
hate to -- why I hate this guy and why I think --
GLENN: Oh, you hate him? I don't hate him.
CALLER: -- he is a dirt ball. The answer to your question is the fact that he
has stated that the greatest obstacle to world identity or whatever you want to
say is the United States of America.
GLENN: Oh, so he believes it is a repressive regime.
CALLER: I have answered your question. No, he did not say it was a repressive
GLENN: What do you think the biggest obstacle to justice and peace would be?
CALLER: America --
GLENN: A happy regime?
CALLER: American independence.
GLENN: So in other words, you don't want American independence?
CALLER: No --
GLENN: You think American independence --
CALLER: Hello. You said that you would allow me to expand.
GLENN: Go right ahead, Al. We could put your wife on. I'd rather talk to her.
CALLER: You're a hell of a sport. He has his subversive policies overthrew
repressive regimes and that is what he was laughing at. And I agree with him
100%. I am from Cuba. I wish that he would repressively -- I mean that he would
subversively take down the government of Cuba.
GLENN: It is amazing to me that you're from Cuba.
CALLER: You would actually be laughing along with him if that was the case,
would you not?
GLENN: It is amazing to me, sir, that you are from Cuba and you believe American
independence, American independence -- anyone who says that America is the
biggest obstacle to a new world order and justice and peace, and you want to
stand and defend that man is amazing to me. I am not defending the -- or I'm not
accusing the man of collapsing regimes and saying it was wrong for him to do it.
I showed you he collapses regimes so I could show you the steps that he takes.
There are five steps that the man takes to collapse, and he is doing all five of
them. He did them on repressive regimes, he has declared that America is a
repressive regime. Of course, you have to read into his words, but that goes
back to him saying he's like God and he's invisible. It also goes to his words
subversive activity. So he says that we are the biggest obstacle. I'm sorry he
doesn't use "Repressive." And then if you look at his pattern, there are five
steps, and I showed you the five steps that he's done in the past and the five
steps that he is doing right now.
Al, if you don't see it, that's okay, brother. Go back to sleep. Go back to
sleep. And I know you've regretted this phone call. I know, I know that you did
things that you just didn't want to do. And while you were doing them, you
regretted them. And maybe someday you'll even regret this phone call even more,
sir. But see, that's another point, that sometimes you do things whether you
are, what, 40, 50, 80 or 14, sometimes you do things that you have to do, but
you regret them. And the operative word there is "Regret."
