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.

PAT: But.

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.

PAT: 70%.

GLENN: Good. All right. Go ahead.

PAT: 75, 77?

GLENN: Stop. Now, go ahead. Go ahead.

PAT: 65?

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.

Now --

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.

CALLER: Exactly.

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

from, Stu?

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: 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 --


PAT: Al!

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.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So in other words, you don't want American independence?


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."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
