PAT: They got right down to business yesterday. Harry Reid wasted no time

tackling the tough issues.

GLENN: They just went right to it.

PAT: Right on it.

REID: Let's talk about what happened in Reno, Nevada Friday night. Nevada and

Boise State have been rivals for a long time. Back when they played in the Big

Sky and the Big West conferences.

PAT: What?

REID: And the Western Athletic Conference where they play today. They'll soon

leave the WAC together to join the Mountain West Conference and the rivalry will

continue. Though some reason games have been close, for example the 2007 game

went to four overtimes. Nevada hadn't won since 1998 in that rivalry.

PAT: Wow. The Chinese were upset about that.

REID: The best in school history, one of the best in country this year. Leads

the conference in offense, rushing yards and points scored. After this weekend's

win at ranks, it is ranked 14th in the nation.

STU: Wow.

REID: Still being a

PAT: That's when Ireland's economy collapsed.

STU: And North Korea was fired up.

PAT: Yeah.

REID: since December 2008. The wolf pack were 14 point underdogs.

STU: Oh, my gosh.

REID: They were down 17 0 late in the second quarter.

STU: And then Hugo Chavez came in and he said...

REID: That an incredible second half comeback, forced overtime.

GLENN: How long does this go on?

REID: For me it was special pleasure, though

PAT: It was a special pleasure for him to them play.

STU: For them to play.

REID: At the end of October I was

PAT: It goes on for five minutes, but I edited it down to about two.

REID: as I indicated. Quite a thrill to sit right next to this great athlete.

PAT: Yeah, this football player at Nevada, University of sometimes.

REID: it's just a game. But this is one of those times when it's much more.

STU: Much more.

GLENN: It's our damn country!

REID: underrated and underappreciated athletic program for a great university

for the whole State of Nevada. Congratulations, Coach Chris Ault.

PAT: I can't say your name, but...

GLENN: You know, can we

STU: This an analogy?

GLENN: Really, can we stop? What is he

STU: Does he compare the struggle of Nevada to our country?

PAT: No. No, he just ends.

REID: Nevada was going to win that game because the confidence that great coach

had and the confidence that great quarterback had. Will the chair now announce

morning business, Mr. President.

PAT: And then it ends. And then Franken takes over and it's done. Five minutes

of Nevada/Boise State. With the country on fire. On fire.

GLENN: We are witnessing, we are witnessing one of honestly I mean, I think I'm

getting perspective here on how we're going to be remembered. First of all, the

20th century is going to be remembered I think as the greatest lie ever told. We

have been lied to from the beginning. At least the progressives you know, a lot

of our problems really started with the progressive movement. You know, our

commercialism and everything else, it's Bernays. We've been doing some research

on something that we're going to work on for next year and I told the guys a

story about Bernays and I won't bore you with it because we've already been

bored with Harry Reid here and his baseball story. But it's

PAT: It's football.

GLENN: Football. Did you guys did you guys even know the story that I told you


PAT: No, and it's not boring. I found it fascinating. I had no idea. Never heard

that before.

GLENN: Bernays, the reason why we have well, the reason why we have the problem

with cigarettes now is Bernays. Bernays is the guy who was the he's the guy with

propaganda under Woodrow Wilson. He's the guy who wrote the book on propaganda,

how he sold it to America. He's the guy who won really World War I. It's his

books that were found in the shelves of Goebbels. Goebbels said that he learned

propaganda from America from Bernays. This guy changed everything, everything.

The reason why our kids just want more and more and more and more and more is

because of the system that Bernays built. He's the guy who after World War I

they realized our industry needs to just keep making stuff. It's the reason he's

the reason why Henry Ford said, okay, you can buy a car, you'll have one and

they will all come in black and everybody will have a car. Well, what happened?

Why did they start building different models and everything else? Because

Bernays spoke to the industrial groups and they realized we can make more money

if we just keep making people buy stuff. And he said, I can make them do it! His

cousin was Sigmund Freud. They have been playing and manipulating us for a very

long time. If you look at the structure of what Woodrow Wilson did with Bernays

and the idea of psychologically manipulating people, during the do you know why

we all smoke? Do you know why we have this problem with so many smokers and why

it was so cool for a while? It was Edward Bernays. His cousin. His cousin helped

him on this one. Bernays was approached by the tobacco industry and said we need

to sell cigarettes. It wasn't cool to smoke cigarettes. It was uncouth to smoke

cigarettes. Well, he figured out a way to help. He said I'll take you on. He

used a vacation with his cousin, Sigmund Freud. Sigmund Freud said, well, you

know, the cigarette, that's a phallic symbol. Men will find that sexy.

How many guys will tell you, see a picture of a woman smoking a cigar and they

will say, that's sexy? How many times have you seen that on the cover of, like,

GQ magazine? It's sexy? Freud said that's a phallic symbol. Well, Bernays found

a way to sell cigarettes. It was during the suffer rage movement, women getting

the right to vote. He decided to get everybody together and smoke. A sign of

independence, an independent woman. So he had all of the women put the cigarette

packages in their garter belt and then he said to them, you know what? I'll

bring the press because I believe in your right to vote. I am so with you on

your right to vote. He was selling cigarettes. They didn't know that. "I am so

with you on the right to vote. Here's what we're going to do. I want you guys to

go ahead and meet and I'll have all the press there. And she's going to give a

little speech and she'll be talking about liberty, Lady Liberty. And at some

point I want you to reach under your skirt to your garter belt and pull out a

cigarette and then light it and then hold it up. Hold it high in the air. Well,

he did and everybody, all the photographers took pictures of it and it was spun

that that was the new Lady Liberty holding the new torch of freedom. Cigarettes

were the torch of freedom. They became cool. It was a sign of an independent

woman. He then went out to Hollywood and everybody else, made sure everybody was

smoking and now we have the problems that we have with smoking. Edward Bernays,

propaganda. Almost everything these progressives did we're still paying for.

"Make them want more." Before him, people took care of their needs. He exploited

their wants and their desires.

It's time to come out of the matrix. It's time to decide, I am getting out of

the matrix. I am an independent person. I'm not going to be manipulated. I am

not going to be a pawn. Because this is what's happening. Our country is burning

down to the ground. These people in congress, it's criminal what they're doing.

It's criminal. Right now the biggest heist of freedom the world has ever seen is

happening. And they don't care if they leave fingerprints anymore. You have to

ask yourself why. They are going in and they are passing all of these things in

broad daylight that you will pay for. The Food Safety Act will increase the

price of food. But they don't care. They are doing these crimes in broad

daylight. They are just taking it. What kind of criminal does that? Either a

really bad one or one that knows something that you don't know. There isn't they

have taken care of the police. They have taken care of the police. Ain't gonna

get arrested. The time that I told you would come of the perfect storm is here,

and I want to outline it for you today. And I want to show you what you can do.

And I tell you, I almost I said to the guys I am almost to the point to where I

would say close the ark door. Launch the lifeboats. Whatever analogy you want,

close the bunker door. You know the point in the Wizard of Oz where they are

like, "Dorothy! Dorothy!" And uncle Henry or whatever his name was like, "Come

on, we've got to get into the shelter." And they get into the shelter and they

close the door and Dorothy has to fend for herself because the storm is here.

It's about time to get in and go down to the cellar because the storm is here.

The one we've been telling you about for five years, it's here.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
