Glenn & O'Reilly



Glenn Beck is seen here on GlennBeck.TV, a feature available exclusively to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: We have Bill O'Reilly is Bill O'Reilly on the phone? We have Bill O'Reilly on the phone and I wanted to talk to him about a couple of things. First of all, this South Korea thing, Bill, 50 rockets filed by North Korea. Where do you think that goes?

O'REILLY: Nowhere. I think they are just being provocative. Like you remember a few months ago they sunk a South Korean ship and, you know, they do this stuff from time to time just to cause trouble kind of like Iran does it. I don't expect it to escalate because the next time they do something, then this South Koreans and the USA have to respond. So they have to. So they go right up to the line and usually when they go up to the line, they go back.

GLENN: So you think that they can fire 50 rockets, kill two people and I mean, because I don't see us doing anything about it.

O'REILLY: No, we're not going to do anything unless they do it again.

GLENN: Why is this why is this the line?

O'REILLY: Because this is the second time that this has happened and this one's getting a lot of publicity. So Obama realizes if they did it again and he didn't respond, then it becomes about Obama. Not about

GLENN: Right, but what about China? What do you think China's going to do?

O'REILLY: Nothing. China likes chaos. It likes the United States on the defensive. It likes North Korea to rattle our cage. That all helps them.

GLENN: So let me switch gears here and go to TSA. Tell me what you think this means, Bill. Do you have the audio, Pat?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Here's the audio of this was said during the campaign. Tell me what this means.



It's time for the truth -- straight up, whether you like it or not. Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck are teaming up and going on tour. Your town may never be the same.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.

GLENN: What is a civilian security force that is just as strong, just as well funded as the military?

O'REILLY: The Tea Party.

GLENN: (Laughing).

O'REILLY: It didn't quite work out the way he wanted it to. That's exactly what it is.

GLENN: No, seriously what do you think it is?

O'REILLY: I don't think he had any idea what it was. I think the

GLENN: You just think that came out there?

O'REILLY: Threw it out there that he wants everybody to rally and protect the nation. But did he have a specific vision in mind?

GLENN: Do you think there's a possibility because here's what I think is happening with the TSA. I think some of this stuff with the TSA is being pushed. I mean, Obama is clueless on this. He is nowhere to be found and it's I mean, some of the things that are happening at the airports I've never seen happen in our country before.

O'REILLY: Well, that's right, and I've got Pistole on tonight.

GLENN: Do you really?

O'REILLY: The TSA chief. He's coming on The Factor tonight. And I'm going to pat him down, by the way.

GLENN: Please wear gloves.

O'REILLY: And, you know, look, they have to modify it. They will. I'm going to have to tell him what to do tonight and that's my job as the

GLENN: May I tell you may I ask you to ask him about unionizing the TSA? Because I think this is about unionizing the TSA. There's a story in the London Daily Mail today about how the unions how the TSA is very upset because they have to deal with all these angry frustrated people and they need somebody to stand up for them and they need protection. I think this is the beginning of unionizing the TSA which is a very, very bad thing.

O'REILLY: I don't know if I'm going to have time to get into that, Beck. I've got to tell Pistole how the run the airports. It's going to take me a little while to get through to him.

GLENN: Is that what's going to happen? Is that what's

O'REILLY: You know

GLENN: Excuse me.

O'REILLY: I have to do this. So you know, I don't know

GLENN: Bill, hang on just a second.

O'REILLY: Usually on this media thing, if it gets to critical mass, then I'll step in.

GLENN: Then you step in?

O'REILLY: Let me sort out the airports first.

GLENN: Let me ask you something. Was that a phone? Who has are you like at your big desk?

O'REILLY: I'm at big factor central here, Beck.

GLENN: You are like your big, you know, corner office desk where you've got several phones?

O'REILLY: Yeah, this is the hub.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: The hub of activity for the entire nation right here.

GLENN: Yeah, right. So we're going to be out on the Bold Fresh Tour. We're going to be let's see. We're going to first, why don't

O'REILLY: New Orleans December 3rd, Friday, want everybody in the Gulf Coast to rally. There are a few tickets available but it's going to be a great show. I know because you've told me it's going to be great.

GLENN: Right. Then December 4th we're going to be in Dallas. There's some tickets available for that, 2:00 p.m.

O'REILLY: First we ought to tell folks the evening show is sold out. We have a 2:00 matinee, there are tickets left for that but they are going to sell out, too. So everybody listening today, this is a really good show. You guys are going to really like it. It's worth it. It's worth it to make the effort. Beck and I, we disagree on a bunch of stuff, we agree on some stuff, but it's a lot of fun. And then I want to tell your listeners if you can't get to the Bold Fresh shows because you live in Seattle, we have the DVD; is that correct?

GLENN: Well, you don't I mean, they don't want to use electricity in Seattle to be able to watch the DVD. I mean, they just

O'REILLY: But we have the Bold Fresh DVD for Christmas giving and it's really hysterical, Beck. I think you're funnier than I am.

GLENN: I well, that goes without saying. But I also think I tell more truth in the behind the scenes interview about you. I think that

O'REILLY: Did you hear from my attorneys yet, by the way?

GLENN: Yeah, right. The Bold Fresh Tour. It is on video with lots of behind the scenes stuff in the DVD extras, and you can find that at GlennBeck.com or BoldFreshTour.com as well. All the tickets are available there and, Bill, we'll talk to you again, my friend, thank you.

O'REILLY: Keep an eye on them now.

GLENN: You got it. Bye bye

Would Glenn make a better bounty hunter or a Jedi? You'll have to find out in a new episode of the Beltway Banthas Podcast, where Glenn goes deep on Star Wars with host Stephen Kent. In this 45 minute discussion, Stephen and Glenn explore the political themes of the Star Wars franchise, Darth Vader's redemption from Return of the Jedi, Glenn's earliest memories of seeing the films and even debate elements of the latest Star Wars films.

If you enjoy the pop culture and nerdy discussions that Glenn, Pat and Stu get into on the radio show, you'll love this! After you're through, you can also check out Stu Burguiere's appearance on Beltway Banthas to talk Star Wars. You can find that here.


It's never too early to start your Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanzaa shopping. Or even birthday gift shopping. Especially if that special someone in your life is a Democrat. Because at last count, pretty much all the Democrats are now running for president. And that means there has never been a wider selection of official candidate merchandise to choose from. Whether you're into environmentalism, feminism, classism, socialism, or just plain love, there is a smorgasbord of classy items that you and yours will treasure forever... or at least until the next presidential election.

We have browsed each of the candidates' online stores, so you don't have to (it only took us three months). We have curated only the finest items from each of the Democrats running for president of the United States of America. Without further ado, here is your handy progressive gift guide – or maybe your what-not-to-gift guide.

First, the bargain basement options. Hurry! Time is running out to grab your Beto bandana, or your Delaney pack of golf balls, because at this point Stu has as much of a chance as these guys of getting the nomination.

Tom Steyer, for example – is he still in the race?


https://shop.tomsteyer.com/collections/frontpage/products/tom-2020-pattern-tee


There's way too much Tom here. That shirt's got more Toms than a Caucasian dentists' convention.

For the slightly more moderate Democrat in your life, perhaps they'd like to join the "Yang Gang"…

https://shop.yang2020.com/collections/bumper-stickers/products/yanggang-decal


Andrew Yang is a lock for Math Club president…


https://shop.yang2020.com/collections/apparel/products/math-hat


But for actual president? Well, I wouldn't make plans for how you're going to spend your $1,000-per-month Yang allowance just yet.

If you happen to be shopping for your dog, may I suggest this lovely "Dogs for Delaney" dog collar…


https://store.johndelaney.com/products/dogs-for-delaney-collar


John Delaney's definitely going to secure the canine vote with this kind of outreach. As for any human votes, that's another question entirely.

How 'bout this tastefully understated "Natural Canvas" Michael Bennet tote to remind you he's also still here?...


https://store.michaelbennet.com/michael-bennet-for-america-natural-canvas-tote/


Then again, it's a tote. So, it'll end up on the floor of your closet and you won't have it with you until that one random moment when you're out somewhere and you really need a tote bag. Just like Democrats will really wish they had a moderate when we're in the middle of the socialist nightmare of their creation.

Captain Planet himself, Jay Inslee recently dropped out of the race, but don't let that stop you from picking up what may be the greatest single item sold by anyone in this race…


https://store.jayinslee.com/elvis-the-elves-the-mystery-of-the-melting-snow-by-jay-inslee/


A children's book called Elvis & the Elves: the Mystery of the Melting Snow. Written and illustrated by Governor Jay Inslee. Talk about a whodunnit – how could that snow possibly be melting? Spoiler alert: it's because of evil, white, patriarchal capitalism. And Donald Trump.

Then there's the candidate who thinks you're a moron that can't pronounce his last name: Steve Bullock...


https://shop.stevebullock.com/collections/apparel/products/emoji-t-shirt


Get it? Bull. Lock. Oh, so that's how you say the name that sounds exactly how it's spelled.

There's another candidate who also thinks you need help pronouncing his last name…


https://store.peteforamerica.com/collections/apparel/products/boot-edge-edge-t-shirt


And he is definitely right about that. So, thank you, Pete "Boot Edge Edge." That helps.

Just outside the bargain bin section, but just barely, are candidates like Julian Castro and his "El Presidente" t-shirt…


https://store.julianforthefuture.com/julian-castro-loteria-card-white-tee/


When your last name's Castro, do you really want to go with a weird drawing of yourself as if you're a classic Latin American dictator on a postage stamp?

If you prefer a little "dark psychic forces" battling in your candidates, you'll love Marianne Williamson's "Turn Love Into a Political Force" rally sign…


https://store.marianne2020.com/collections/signs/products/love-rally-sign


"Turn Love Into a Political Force" would be an even better title for a Marianne Williamson album of 80s cover songs. And if you think I'm joking, then you haven't heard Bernie Sanders' classic 1987 folk album, We Shall Overcome. That's not a joke. Well, it is a joke, but it's also a very real thing.

Now, just a quick pause to consider the peculiar baby-wear that way too many candidates are selling…

…including Elizabeth Warren's trans-pride flag onesie. Let me get this straight – we can't force any gender on a child, because that's just cruel. But we can force a political advertisement on a baby? How do we know that baby is actually a Biden or Warren fan? The child may not even be a Democrat or a Socialist at all. That baby might self-identify as a Libertarian, or Republican, or even worse – a moderate Democrat.

Now to the premium items from the premium candidates. Elizabeth Warren – the candidate with the most honesty in her advertising…


https://shop.elizabethwarren.com/collections/apparel/products/impolite-arrogant-women-make-history-unisex-t-shirt

-AND-

https://shop.elizabethwarren.com/collections/drinkware/products/strong-american-unions-mug


Warren's merchandise reflects the woman herself – cold and humorless (watch her "This isn't funny" clip from the last debate here at the 4:27 mark). I'm sure she's really fun once you get to know her. Then again, maybe not.

Speaking of serious women, Kamala Harris wants to be president very badly for you, the people, as you can tell from her "For the People" poster…


https://store.kamalaharris.org/poster-for-the-people/


At $29.99 though, she's sure not charging "people's" prices. Of course, she might be having to pay royalties to a certain someone for riffing on their poster. Just saying.

For the race's number one socialist, there's a whole lot of capitalism going on in Bernie Sanders' campaign. He sells so many delightful items that it's hard to choose. But we did anyway. The most random item is this hundred-dollar, black, "Art of a Political Revolution – Artists for Bernie Sanders Coaches Jacket"…


https://store.berniesanders.com/collections/apparel/products/artists-for-bernie-coaches-jacket


Coaches across the land will be clamoring for this one. You know, since coaches are such a strong Bernie-socialist demographic.

If that's a little over your budget you might consider a "Feel the Bern" fanny pack, to help store all those government freebies you'll get from Bernie…


https://store.berniesanders.com/collections/apparel/products/feel-the-bern-fanny-pack


This is the only context in which you'll ever want to hear "feel the burn" and "fanny" in the same sentence.

And finally, from front-runner Joe Biden, we have this fine "Women's Fitted Biden Polo." Which is just about the best polo description ever…


https://store.joebiden.com/collections/apparel/products/biden-polo-womens-fit


It promises the kind of snug approach that Biden loves to provide women. Even when they don't ask.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.
