GLENN: There's a couple things that and we've already been down this road, I have for a while now, and I have told you that we need to educate ourselves. Yesterday, last night on the TV show I told you the story of the Tower of Babel. I retold it in the first hour today. If you have an Insider Extreme, you should go listen to the second half of the first hour and listen to the Tower of Babel because it is really important, really important. And one of the things it talks about, bricks and mortar. Ask the people became bricks. They were all the totalitarian Nimrod, if you will, tried to make everybody into a brick, all exactly the same. And the mortar that held their society together was materialism. The word for "Mortar" in the Hebrew is the same for "Materialism." And so it is really what has held our society together, our wealth. Our lifestyle. Our clothing labels. You know, Nike, Ralph Lauren, our wealth, our materialism is what has helped what has held this society together. It is the glue right now. That will not work. When we hit troubled times, we cannot have our materialism be our mortar. We must have something bigger than that. And that is God and our principles and our values. The things that have always made this country great.

This is why it has been so important for us to educate ourselves. I just heard some elitist say today, "Well, the problem with America is they've stopped reading." Really? This audience hasn't. Do you know that this audience, this audience has kept two national book sellers afloat in the last couple of years. This audience has purchased more books than I don't know of an audience that has ever purchased as many books as this one has. You are readers. You're learners. And that is great. It is going to hold us together. It is part of the foundation.

The other side is God. When we know what we believe and we root ourselves in values and principles and our family, and we put God first, we're going to be okay. There are two books that I have talked to you about that I say you must get, you must get. And I don't make a dime off of either one of these. The first one is the 5,000 Year Leap. The 5,000 Year Leap is the best book for anyone who wants to understand the engine of America and what the founders did. It is simple to read. You can read it to your 10 year old and get it, and somebody who is 80 can read it and really understand. It is such a good, basic understanding, written in a really entertaining and inspiring way. The 5,000 Year Leap. Buy it. If you don't have it, buy it, please. The second one is a Patriot's History of the United States. It is by Larry Schweickart. Larry is one of this guy is, I think there's several of these people, American heroes. David Barton is another one. Somebody who has toiled in the darkness and behind the scenes for a very long time trying to get the word out while people like Howard Zinn write the History of the American Peoples or whatever that is. The guy's a communist. And that book sells a million copies and he gets critical acclaim and all kinds of stuff. But somebody who is trying to tell the truth, the real truth has toiled behind the scenes for a very long time trying to keep our story protected and alive. A Patriot's History of the United States is the best history book of the United States I think, I think out there. It's 900 pages and it is it's almost, in some ways it's a bathroom reader. It's something you can open up at any place and because it covers so much history. You can open it up pretty much any place and get into it. It is fantastic. Please, everyone get this for Christmas. Please, for the family. And read it aloud. These two books are like American scripture in a way. They tell our stories so we cannot repeat the mistakes of the past. A Patriot's History of the United States.

Now, Larry is on the phone with me now. I hope I didn't make you uncomfortable here, Larry.

SCHWEICKART: Yeah, your refund check's in the mail.

GLENN: So Larry, you are doing Beck University tonight. This is the second class of the fall semester of Beck University. It's a one hour class and it's broken up in two parts. Tell me what the first part is.

SCHWEICKART: Well, I'm doing Andrew Jackson is the first era of big government, how Andrew Jackson destroyed America, to use hyperbole, but he really is the first real progressive, big government executive that we have. And, you know, I taught on this in the class, but I went back and looked at some notes that a student of mine had done for me many years ago on the actual numbers of per capita expenditures, nominal and real expenditures by the U.S. Government, and government employees in the early 1800s. And it's quite amazing. All three categories jump and jump sharply under Jackson. For the first time you start to see a large number of government employees, certainly per capita the number of government employees goes up. So it's strange that Jackson is always portrayed as kind of a small government guy but in almost every way, he is the founder of big government.

GLENN: Yeah, he's the evil Woodrow Wilson of the 1800s, I think. He's a guy who and I know they didn't call it manifest destiny at the time, but he's the guy who went in and just started slaughtering the Indians and, "Well, we need the land; we're going to take it." And he's the guy, if I'm not mistaken, that Davy Crockett went back to congress after being conned by Andrew Jackson and said, you can all go to hell; I'm going to Texas. Because he was disgusted by what the government had turned into.

SCHWEICKART: Well, Crockett was no fan of Jackson, that's for sure. They were enemies. Just as a somewhat means of explaining Jackson's position on the Indians, in the American Revolution he had seen the Indians side with the redcoats, and it troubled him deeply. And he never forgot the fact that when he, you know, fought and he saw his relatives fighting against the British that the Indians were their allies and so that's one of the reasons that all his life he kind of had it out for the Indians.

GLENN: Then the Part 2 is Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and the reconstruction of America. But tonight you are doing Andrew Jackson, how he destroyed the republic.

SCHWEICKART: Right. And you know the other thing that Jackson does is he launches this war on the Bank of the United States, sort of the Federal Reserve of the day, but in its time the BUS was extremely private. It was not a government operation at all. It was only 20% government run. And, you know, you can argue about whether or not that was a good thing to have but it wasn't that Jackson was opposed to a government bank. He was opposed to that one because he thought it was being run by the Whigs, by his political opponents. And I discovered something that has yet to be refuted in anything that I've ever published and it is an 1829 order from Jackson to his secretary of the treasury to lay out a plan, to design a plan for a new national bank along the lines of the BUS but one that his party could control.

GLENN: That's not being done now. Larry, thank you so much and we'll see you tonight in class.

SCHWEICKART: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: You bet. That is Beck University tonight at 8:00, Insider Extreme and this is the second class of Beck University of the fall semester. Tonight, one hour super sized Andrew Jackson. Part 2 is Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and the reconstruction of America tonight at 8:00, only on Insider Extreme. If you're not a member yet, sign up now at GlennBeck.com.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."
