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).


 

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
