Want some of Glenn's 'stuff'?

GLENN: I am so pissed off at my wife right now. I cannot yeah, yeah. And I know what time it is. I know she's listening. I am so hacked off at her right she, on Upillar.com she sold one of my favorite things in our whole house. I don't I didn't mark it. I don't know who marked it. She has the wood end table with design, this was you remember when you came into my house, Stu, and you come into the front door and, you know, there was the painting of George Washington and the medals that had been given, you know, from soldiers and stuff?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Okay. Right there was this beautiful table that has this star design in the top of it. Do you remember that table? Do you remember that table, Pat?

PAT: Oh, yeah. Mmm hmmm.

STU: She put that up?

GLENN: Selling for $51.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: It's selling for $51 right now.

PAT: At Upillar.com.

GLENN: It's killing me.

PAT: There's going to be some bargains to be had.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Where is that? I want to bid on that.

GLENN: Wood end table, I might wood end table with design.

PAT: Bid $51.50, Stu, you might get it. You might get it.

STU: Oh, yeah.

PAT: There's so much great stuff on there. There's some things I really wanted. That beautiful green sectional, that is a comfortable couch.

GLENN: You sound like you're being sarcastic but I know you're not.

PAT: I'm not. I wanted that. I wanted that.

GLENN: The green sectional with flower pattern, it's not a flower pattern.

PAT: It's really not.

GLENN: It's more of a western kind of

PAT: It's manual. It's not something that's frou frou or something.

GLENN: It is I've slept on that couch many times.

STU: (Laughing). And you probably will be again, tonight.

GLENN: And you probably will be again. It's really a comfortable couch.

PAT: It's great.

GLENN: What is that going for?

STU: $202.

PAT: $202? Seriously?

GLENN: This stuff is

PAT: A couple of months ago you were trying to get rid of stuff. Remember that? And you said, if there's anything you want, take it?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And my wife and I were over at the time?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Let's get that green sectional. "I don't know where to put it in our house." What? We'll find some place to put it. And you don't have to put it together. You can, you know, break it apart and put the pieces around. We won't always live in this house. We'll find a place for it.

GLENN: Sounds like my wife.

PAT: That's stupid. There's nowhere to put it. I don't want that. It's fantastic! Now it's going tore $202.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Yeah, one thing I noticed, too, on the site, Glenn, and I guess they are working on getting this corrected but they are

GLENN: Go ahead.

STU: It says that the item must be picked up at a warehouse in St. George, Utah? From what I understand, that is not accurate. You don't have to, like, drive out to St. George to pick it up.

GLENN: No. Some of the pieces are so heavy that you do have to arrange, you know, for a mover to come and get it.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Some of them are really big and heavy.

STU: Right.

GLENN: The small end table, there's one thing that says small end table, missing what does it say? Missing glass top or tile. No, there is a beautiful hand painted box that goes on top of that. I don't know what happened to it in the move, but there's this beautiful hand painted box that goes on top of it that I don't I'm kind of regretting my decision here. I'm really regretting my decision.

PAT: Look at that. You got a tan sofa with pillows. That sofa right there is a nice sofa. That's a nice sofa, too.

GLENN: I don't know which one it is.

PAT: 22 bucks.

GLENN: 22

PAT: 22 bucks.

GLENN: I'm taking it all back. I'm taking it all back. So it's available at Upillar.com.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And look, all the money is going to charity. And you will see next year, you'll see next year I don't want to give away too much. Mainly because my business partner has no idea, no idea yet. But you'll see next year what we're doing and it's really great. So if you're looking for something for your house, if you're looking for, you know, new sofa or, you know, new whatever, there's beds in here, there's everything. We are getting rid of we're downsizing in our house. And some of this stuff look, I have to be honest with you. There's like there's a couple of things, you know. There's like this, I don't know, these glasses or something. Some of them are, you know, like okay, $2 is worth that's worth it. Some of the stuff in here is worth a fortune. I mean, some of this stuff is really expensive. There are these, what are they, five glass cups with stars. I think it's they are from the 1880s. They are really maybe that should be said there in the description, but some of the stuff I think you could buy and you'll be like, holy cow. Holy I mean, this really is, you know, Antiques Road Show. I don't know what some of the stuff I don't even know what it's worth. But I know, I know what we paid for it years and years ago on some of this stuff and it is, it's good stuff.

STU: Make an observation here. For an alcoholic, you have a lot of barstools. You seem to be selling several different sets of barstools.

GLENN: Can I tell you what that is? That is having to have them custom made for the house and then we move and then we just put them in storage and we're like, well, we might have a bar, we might have the, you know, the kitchen bar area, you know? We might have the room for those in that house. And then you get there and that counter is just a little lower or a little higher. And so you never have the right size barstool!

STU: Oh, the trials and tribulations of being Glenn. I mean, it's like, oh, the counter's too high for this set of barstools!

PAT: Who can find the right kind of barstool? I mean

GLENN: You are such a jerk!

PAT: I've got this Armani barstool and it's 3 1/2 centimeters too small!

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: Oh!

GLENN: You are such jerks. You are such jerks.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: It's going tore charity!

STU: No, it is.

GLENN: For the love of Pete!

PAT: It is good stuff, it really is. It's all great.

GLENN: There's a silver lamp here that's going for, like, $1. It's a Ralph Lauren silver lamp. I know, of course

PAT: Ralph Lauren, I spit on Ralph Lauren. I spit on him!

GLENN: I'm just saying that there's some good deals here! I'm just saying. That's all I'm saying! It's going for charity! How am I getting pelted for this?

PAT: If it's not Gucci, I don't even want to hear about it.

STU: I would never sell anything less than Armani!

GLENN: Such jerks. No, believe me there's stuff less than Armani on here.

STU: By the way, Glenn, not everyone, of course, is selling Ralph Lauren silver lamps to get ready for the new year.

GLENN: You're such a jerk.

STU: There are other ways to do that. And actually what we're doing for next week is putting together examples of different people's stories of how they're getting ready for 2011 clearing out the crap in their life and getting ready not just, you know, not just, you know, stuff from around the house but all different ways. If you have a story about that, e mail us at pitches@GlennBeck.com. That's pitches@GlennBeck.com and let us know your story. We're going to be doing a series of them next week.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: You can find all this at Upillar.com.

PAT: We got rid of a whole bunch of Christmas ornaments just yesterday.

GLENN: Did you really?

PAT: Cleared them out. Everything must go.

GLENN: Really? What happened?

PAT: Our tree fell over.

GLENN: He still goes out and gets a real tree.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: I did that for years and years.

PAT: I love it.

STU: We finally

GLENN: We pretty much just give up on it.

STU: I love it, too, but it's like every once in a while you get to that year where it's just too busy and you just give up and we got the fake one and now we have the fake one.

PAT: We did that, too, and now we went back to the real tree because the kids were really they were like me. I always wanted a real tree and the kids wanted one and so we started doing that about three or four years ago and it's great. About you they're a hassle!

GLENN: They are a hassle. Last year we did it, too, because the kids are at the age and they are like, oh, they want a real tree. And this year it's like, really? Do you?

PAT: Tough!

GLENN: Well, then you go chop it down.

PAT: You little brats! When you can pay for one, you can get one!

GLENN: Who is the Hot Pocket guy?

STU: Jim Gaffigan?

GLENN: Yeah, Jim Gaffigan. I love the tree routine that he does where he's like, this sounds like something that came off by a drunk guy, that the wife woke up in the middle of the night and he's like, why do we have a tree in the house?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: 'Cuz! We're going to decorate it for Jesus!

PAT: It is weird, isn't it?

GLENN: It's weird.

PAT: It's weird.

GLENN: We go outside and we put the stuff we take the stuff from the outside and put it on the inside of the house and take the stuff from the inside and put it out on the lawn! It's the most screwed up holiday ever!

STU: (Laughing).


 

It's not as easy as it used to be for billion-dollar entertainment empires like The Walt Disney Company. It would be more streamlined for Disney to produce its major motion pictures in its own backyard. After all, abortion in California is readily available, as well as a protected, cherished right. And since abortion access is critical for movie production, right up there with lighting equipment and craft services, you would think California would be the common-sense choice for location shooting. Alas, even billion-dollar studios must pinch pennies these days. So, in recent years, Disney, among other major Hollywood studios, has been farming out production to backwater Southern lands like Georgia, and even Louisiana. Those states offer more generous tax breaks than Disney's native California. As a result, Georgia for example, played host to much of the shooting for the recent worldwide box office smash Avengers: Endgame.

But now it looks like it's Georgia's endgame. The state recently passed what is known as a "heartbeat" bill – a vicious, anti-woman law that would try to make pregnant women allow their babies to be born and actually live. It's a bridge too far for a major studio like Disney, which was largely built on creating family entertainment. How can Disney possibly go about making quality movies, often aimed at children, without access to unfettered abortion? It's unconscionable. Lack of abortion access makes it nearly impossible to shoot movies. So, what's a major studio to do? Disney might have considered migrating its business to Louisiana, but that state too has now signed a heartbeat bill into law. It's utter madness.

These monstrous anti-abortion bills, coupled with having to live under President Trump, has led Disney to seek a new home for its legendary movie magic. Last week, Disney's CEO, Bob Iger, announced that all future Disney movies will now be filmed on location in the Sub-Saharan African nation of Wakanda.

"Disney and Wakanda are a match made in heaven," Iger told reporters. "Wakanda was, until recently, a secret kingdom, much like our own Magic Kingdom. With this new partnership, we'll not only get to continue our legacy of making movies that parents and children everywhere enjoy together, but we'll get to do so in a safe space that reveres abortion as much as we do."

Wakanda is one of only four African countries (out of 55) that allow unrestricted abortion.

As home to the most advanced technology in the world – and with the planet's highest per-capita concentration of wokeness – Wakanda offers women painless, hassle-free abortion on demand. As the Wakandan health ministry website explains, the complete absence of any white-patriarchal-Judeo-Christian influence allows women in Wakanda to have complete control of their own bodies (with the exception of females who are still fetuses). As winner of the U.N.'s 2018 Golden Forceps award (the U.N.'s highest abortion honor) Wakanda continues its glowing record on abortion. That makes it an ideal location for Disney's next round of live-action remakes of its own animated movies in which the company plans to remove all male characters.

Iger says he hopes to convince Wakandan leadership to share their top-secret vibranium-based abortion procedure technology so that American women can enjoy the same convenient, spa-like abortion treatment that Wakandan women have enjoyed for years.

Wakanda is one of only four African countries (out of 55) that allow unrestricted abortion. Disney plans to boycott and/or retaliate against the other 51 African nations, as well as any U.S. states, that restrict abortion. Specific plans are being kept under wraps, but sources say Disney's potential retaliation may include beaming Beverly Hills Chihuahua into the offending territories on a continuous, indefinite loop.

When asked how Wakanda's futuristic capital city and distinctly African landscape would be able to double for American movie locations, Iger said, "I guess America will just have to look more like Wakanda from now on."

One potential wrinkle for the Left-leaning studio is the fact that Wakanda has an impenetrable border wall-shield-thing designed to keep out foreign invaders as well as illegal immigrants. Iger said he understands Wakanda's policy of exclusivity, adding, "After all, not everyone gets into Disneyland. You have to have a ticket to get in. Anyone is welcome, but you have to go through the process of getting a ticket." When one reporter pointed out that Iger's answer sounded like the conservative argument for legal immigration under the rule of law, Iger insisted that the reporter was "a moronic fascist."

What if the unthinkable happens and Florida also enacts its own "heartbeat" law? That would be problematic since Walt Disney World is located in Florida. Iger responded that Disney would "cross that bridge if we get to it" but that the most likely scenario would entail "dismantling Disney World piece-by-piece and relocating it to the actual happiest place on earth – Wakanda." As for whether Disney would ever open character-themed abortion clinics inside its theme parks, Iger remained coy, but said, "Well, it is the place where dreams come true."

With the Wakanda solution, Disney may have found a place where Minnie Mouse can finally follow her heart and have true freedom of choice.

When pressed about the cost of ramping up production in a secretive African kingdom that has no existing moviemaking infrastructure (which could easily end up being much more expensive than simply shooting in California) Iger said, "You can't put a price tag on abortion freedom. Wakanda Forever and Abortion Forever!"

With the Wakanda solution, Disney may have found a place where Minnie Mouse can finally follow her heart and have true freedom of choice. And that will be welcome relief to traditional families all over the world who keep the Walt Disney Company in business.

*Disclaimer: The preceding story is a parody. Bob Iger did not actually say any of the quotes in the story. Neither is Wakanda an actual nation on planet Earth.

"Journeys of Faith with Paula Faris," is a podcast featuring conversations about how faith has guided newsmakers and celebrities through their best and worst times. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a much maligned religion so Glenn joined the podcast and took the time to explain what it means to him and how it changed his life.

From his suicidal days and his battle with drugs and alcohol, it was his wife Tania and his faith that saved him. All his ups and downs have given him the gift of empathy and he says he now understands the "cry for mercy" — something he wishes he'd given out more of over the years.

One of these times I'm going to go on vacation, and I'm just not going to come back. I learn so much on a farm.

You want to know how things work, go spend a summer on a farm. You're having problems with your son or daughter, go spend a summer on a farm.

My son changed. Over two weeks.

Getting him out of bed, getting him to do anything, is like insane. He's a 15-year-old kid. Going all through the normal 15-year-old boy stuff. Getting him on the farm, where he was getting up and actually accomplishing stuff, having to build or mend fences, was amazing. And it changed him.

RELATED: 'Human Wave Theory': Connecting the dots on the strategic attack on our border

Our society does not allow our kids to grow up, ever. I am convinced that our 15-year-olds could be fixing all kinds of stuff. Could be actually really making an impact in a positive way in our society. And what's wrong with our society is, we have gotten away from how things actually work. We're living in this theoretical world. When you're out on a farm, there's no theory here. If it rains, the crops will grow. If it rains too much, the crops won't grow.

If there's no sun, they won't grow. If there's too much sun, they'll shrivel up and die. There's no theory. We were out mending fences. Now, when I say the phrase to you, mending fences, what does that mean? When you think of mending fences, you think of, what?

Coming together. Bringing people together. Repairing arguments.

I've never mended a fence before until I started stringing a fence and I was like, "I ain't doing this anymore! Where is it broken? Can't we just tie a piece of barbed wire together?"

Let's stop talking about building a wall. Because that has all kinds of negative imagery. Mending fences is what we need to do.

That's called mending fences.

And why do you mend fences? So your animals don't get out and start to graze on somebody else's land. When your fence goes down, your cow is now on somebody else's land. And your cow is now eating their food.

We look at the phrase, mending fences as saying, hey. You know, we were both wrong. Mending fences has nothing to do with that.

Mending fences means build a wall. My neighbors and I, we're going to get along fine, as long as my cows don't go and steal their food, or their cows don't come over and steal my cow's food.

We're perfectly neighborly with each other, until one of us needs to mend a fence, because, dude, you got to mend that, because your cows keep coming over and eating my food.

You know what we need to do with Mexico? Mend fences.

Now, that's a phrase. You hear build a wall. That's horrible.

No, no, no. We need to mend fences.

In a farming community, that means putting up an electric fence. That means putting up barbed wire.

So the cows — because the cows will — they'll stick their head through barbed wire. And they'll eat the grass close to the road. Or eat the grass close to the other side of the fence. And they'll get their heads in between those fences. And they can't get out sometimes. Because the grass is always greener on the other side. You look at these damn cows and say turn around, cow — there's plenty of stuff over here.

No. They want the grass on the other side of the fence.

So you mend it.

And if it's really bad, you do what we do. We had to put an electric fence up. Now, imagine putting an electric fence up. That seems pretty radical and expensive.

Does it really work? Does it shock them? What does that feel like to a cow?

The cows hit it once, and then they don't hit it again. They can actually hear the buzz of the electric fence. There's a warning. Don't do it. Don't do it. They hear the current and they hit it once and they're like, "I'm not going to do that again."

So you mend fences, which means, keep your stuff on your side. I like you. We're good neighbors. You keep your stuff on your side and I'll keep my stuff on my side and we'll get together at the town hall and we'll see each other at the grocery store. Because we're good neighbors. But what stops us from fighting is knowing that there is a fence there.

This is my stuff. That's your stuff. But we can still trade and we'll help each other. But let's stop talking about building a wall. Because that has all kinds of negative imagery. Mending fences is what we need to do.

You can have a tough fence. It could be a giant wall. It could be an electric fence. But you need one. And that's how you come together.

The side that's having the problem, mends the fence.

The following is part of an ongoing experiment by Glenn Beck program heartthrob, Stu Burguiere, to begin watching Game of Thrones in its final season, without any previous context. Other than highlights shown in commercials, Stu has never seen a second of Game of Thrones, and has never read a word about its characters or plot lines.

PREVIOUSLY on Game of Thrones: it seems like all the people who hated each other but then started working together, now hate each other again.

- Stupid Lannister has gold hand
- Doors to break into castle has disturbing amount of space between them
- 2 big armies stare each other down. At this point, it's important to note that I don't know why they're fighting or who they are
- Queen Love Child of Mick Jagger and Robin Wright makes an appearance
- Dragon versus old times wooden boats proving to be a bit of a mismatch

- Frumpy Girl getting trampled, keeps getting saved at last second, indicating she's an important character
- Giant helmet-free Darth Vader gets stabbed a dozen times or so without dying, so his brother, now without eyes, tackles him off the side of the castle, probably killing them both

- Stupid Lannister and Mick Jagger/Robin Wright Queen escaping in underground tunnel
- Underground tunnel is no longer a tunnel
- Frumpy Girl really mourning lady who helped her up in previous scene
- Everyone is charred, but a horse inexplicably totally fine
