GLENN: I would like to start with cut 221, please. Jay Rockefeller, Jay Rockefeller tells news officials if we don't fix this in other words, Fox, if we don't fix this, we'll fix you.

So let me caution our witnesses today. If you fail to fix this situation, all three parts of it, we're going to fix it for you, but when we do that, we will seek to do more than referee your corporate money disputes because more than just retransmission consent ails our television markets. We need new catalysts for quality news and entertainment programming. I hunger for quality news. I'm tired of the right and the left.

GLENN: Are you?

There's a whole bug inside of me that wants to get the FCC to say to Fox and MSNBC off, end, good bye. It would be a big favor to political discourse, our ability to do our work here in Congress.

GLENN: Sure would. Let's stop discussion.

And then we could talk and people can have faith in their government and more importantly, their future.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. So it is Fox and MSNBC that is causing us not to have faith in our government. It's not that the crushing debt. It's not the out of control corruption, it's the news.

STU: It's nothing they're doing.

GLENN: He's hungry for the news. Funny. His policies will make the rest of the country hungry and starving. That's fantastic.

PAT: The catalyst for this, I'm pretty sure, are all of these disputes with the rebroadcast rights, right? Like Fox, the local affiliate in New York had a big deal with Comcast, cablevision or somebody. They were taken off the air for, what, about a month and so some people missed the world series.

GLENN: Oh, no. Let's get Congress involved.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Were there steroids involved? It's the free market.

PAT: They would be imprisoned if there were steroids involved.

STU: You have to respect the constitution and in the good and plenty clause, it says you have the right to watch the world series on television for free.

GLENN: The good and plenty clause does not exist.

PAT: We heard about it from John Conyers.

GLENN: The good and plenty clause is for healthcare not rebroadcast.

PAT: You can't use it for anything?

STU: Anything that is in there you're thinking Article 36.

GLENN: Yes, the rebroadcast dissertation clause?

STU: Yes.

PAT: A lot of people don't look at this clause. It's a good clause.

GLENN: It didn't say the world series. It was talking more about the cricket.

PAT: They didn't have the world series then. It would be silly to say that.

GLENN: They meant the world series.

STU: Subsequent Supreme Court rulings have shown that

GLENN: Isn't this big of Jay Rockfeller to say he's willing to get rid of MSNBC? Which is weird because that's what NBC said they should do. We should get rid of MSNBC.

[ Laughter ]

And so GE is getting rid of all of that and they're selling it to Comcast, which is, wait a minute, which is one of these cable companies that are having problems now with the government. Isn't that weird? Here's a prediction. Jay, you don't have to worry about MSNBC going after because just as a business person, take politics out of it, NBC and MSNBC, the way they're running it, when you have when you have Bryan Williams on, who is a good broadcaster. You have Bryan Williams on going just could you DVR my show, please, somebody, anyone? Anyone DVR the show? Can you watch? Please, you have seen this?

PAT: No.

GLENN: He has a campaign out, please DVR my show, please.

PAT: Hopefully it's a little less pathetic than that.

GLENN: It's a little less pathetic. Yeah, it's a little less pathetic. Someone please DVR, please.

STU: That's a weird slogan.

GLENN: I mean, you just start you know, I think they will start going

[ Laughter ]

Please watch us. It's over. It's over. And so Comcast is buying it. Comcast and this is just what I've read, I don't know. Comcast, the guy who owns it or runs it or whatever is a Republican.

STU: I don't know if that's true.

GLENN: What's more important is that he's a businessman, you know. And he knows how to run a business and anybody who knows how to run a business is not going to put up with Keith Olbermann. He's not. There's no ratings and they turned NBC into a news cancer.

STU: You have to pay him a fortune so he can annoy you at every turn.

GLENN: It's not going to happen. It's big for Jay Rockefeller to say as NBC is crashing and burning, I'm willing to destroy it.

STU: I'm willing to ban the pony express as well.

[ Laughter ]

It's like, okay. It's going away on its own.

GLENN: What we need for a more civil discourse is less discourse, clearly.

STU: I don't understand that argument. Why would you care?

GLENN: You don't expect to understand the progressive argument, do you?

STU: I guess not?

GLENN: Guy is globalist central. Do you have the audio from his dad?

PAT: I'm looking for that.

GLENN: That's what he wants to you believe. He's in with the Rothschilds.

PAT: They were the original.

GLENN: They were the original Bilderbergs.

PAT: I think they built the Bilderberg Hotel that is named after the Bilderbergs.

GLENN: That family was named after the famous hotel?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Or are you saying the secret society was named after the hotel. So the Bilderbergs aren't real people. It's just a hotel

PAT: Just a hotel.

GLENN: Who knew?

STU: Rothschild is just a candy.

GLENN: No, I think that's wine.

PAT: Is it? I thought there was a Rothschild candy. Yes. If anybody knows candy, it's Jeffy. Thank you.

GLENN: Thank you from the fat guy in the back. Yeah, it's candy.

PAT: Everything is candy.

GLENN: What I like to do with candy is wash it down with a little Rothschild chateau LEFITE. August was a good month. I always drink it right out of the box. Some day I'm going to live the American dream. I'm going to be a candy and wine taster.

[ Laughter ]

So I don't understand these people who spit it out. What's wrong with you people. Drink it. It's good wine, damnit.

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
