Worst Person in the World


Glenn Beck on the Insider Webcam - and exclusive feature available only to Insiders...

GLENN: You know, I had another run-in last night. And Stu yelled at me this morning actually.

STU: You are actually admitting this now? Because I didn't think we were going to get this out of you today because of your denial of how pathetic you are.

GLENN: I think I'm honest.

STU: I think you --

GLENN: I think I'm honest. I think that's what it is.

STU: Well, depends on how you tell the story, I guess.

GLENN: Okay, here's what happened. We leave. We leave this celebrity thing last night that just was very uncomfortable and I was -- in case you didn't hear last hour, just listen back or read back, read archives. But I sat across the table from Stanley Tucci and he was very, very nice, but I think he was acting. He is so good at acting. I think he was just acting. I don't know. And it was just, you know, it was -- anyway, so I go -- I go home, or I actually go to the hotel that we were staying at last night, my daughter and I, and we're in the elevator and it stops on one floor and a gentleman comes in and he says, hey, you're Glenn Beck. And I said, yes, I am. He said, I watch your show all the time, love you. I said, thank you very much.

STU: See, I don't know if he said love you. Did he say love you? My guess is he didn't say love you.

GLENN: He said watch you all the time, but he was very friendly, he was very friendly. And I said, thank you very much. And then, you know, became the uncomfortable elevator moment and I shook his hand and I said, you know, nice to meet you. I said, what's your name, and he told me his name. And I said, that's great. And then uncomfortable elevator moment.

STU: But you actually said, what's your name?

GLENN: Yeah. And -- yeah. And then I said, where are you from. And he looked at me strangely and he said, Detroit. And I said, oh. And I'm thinking to myself, I don't know if I would admit that but, you know, good for you. And I said, what are you in town for? And he said, well, I play basketball for the Pistons. And my daughter later told me she wanted to lean over to me and say, Dad, it's not the kind of Pistons that you're thinking of, you know, it's not from a car.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And I would have said, but it's Detroit, that's where they make cars.

STU: But luckily it was just some scrub on the Detroit, like way deep on the bench, never plays. You know, that's -- right? Was it?

GLENN: He's the guy, I noticed the cover of GQ magazine.

STU: He was on the cover of GQ magazine?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: I think you would know him just because you would be reading it for fashion tips and you might know him, notice him on the cover, but...

GLENN: I don't even know his name now.

STU: Richard Hamilton. Jeez. Not only is he a huge star in the NBA but also a UConn legend. While you were broadcasting in Connecticut.

GLENN: In Connecticut, yeah, uh-huh.

STU: You're pathetic.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: You do realize that.

GLENN: Uh-huh, uh-huh.

STU: You are not a man.

GLENN: What?

STU: How do you -- you're not a man. You're just, you --

GLENN: You know what I am? You know what I am?

DAN: He doesn't deserve this.

GLENN: I am a multiwinner, multitime winner of worst person in the world. That's what I am, okay?

STU: That's true.

GLENN: And I think that's something to be proud of. I have just been crowned yet again worst person in the world by Keith Olbermann.

STU: And something -- I mean, you need to take this seriously. He is a smart man.

GLENN: He's a journalist, you know.

STU: Yeah, he's a journalist.

GLENN: He's a journalist. Media Matters I believe types stuff right directly into his TelePrompTer.

STU: No, no, I think this he have to copy and paste it.

GLENN: Do they really?

STU: If the connection is down, they do have to copy and paste it.

GLENN: Here's where -- watch this connection. This is a three-part miniseries that you're going to so enjoy. Here is Keith Olbermann dubbing me the worst person in the world. Go ahead.

KEITH: The bronze to Glenn Beck asking his guest, John McCain's pro apocalypse Hagee say, you've got to wake up, Barack Obama's making people cry and faint and everything else. There are people, and they say this about Bill Clinton who believe that he might even be the antichrist. Odds that Barack Obama is the antichrist? Why do you ask, Glenn? Worried about somebody giving you competition?

GLENN: Stop. Okay.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: That's funny.

STU: Oh, my God. How did he come up with doing the same joke you did? Oh, God, whew.

GLENN: Hang on, hang on. First of all, let's just notice that he was reading it. He didn't play audio from it. Now, why wouldn't he play audio? He had to read it. "And they say, Glenn, you've got to wake up. Don't you know that Barack Obama's making people pass out? So tell me, Pastor Hagee, is he the -- what are the odds that he is the antichrist?" Notice? And notice he also doesn't say Pastor Hagee's response. And notice also that he says that Pastor Hagee is pro Armageddon. I think we all are, aren't we? I mean, bring on the end of the world! Yeah!

All right. So why didn't he play the audio? Maybe because, listen to the audio and tell me if this sounds like a serious question to Pastor Hagee.

GLENN: Let me ask you -- because I get so much e-mail on this and I think a lot of people do and I've only got a couple of seconds. They say, Glenn, you in the media, you've got to wake up. Barack Obama's making people faint and cry and everything else and he's drawing people in and there are people, and they said this about Bill Clinton, that actually believe he might be the antichrist. Odds that Barack Obama is the antichrist.

PASTOR HAGEE: No chance. He has a lot of charisma. There's a media love affair with him right now. He is a very forgivable political person.

GLENN: Okay, notice that I'm laughing all the way through it, if you could even see the audio, which, if he played the audio he would have to play the video. If you could actually see the video, you could see that I'm laughing as I say it, as I ask the question. Well, here's the best part, because what picked this up originally was, I don't even know, Think Progress. Think Progress, yes. Let's Think Progress. Do you know Progressive has "Progress" in it? It must be good. Think Progress is the first that picked this up on the blog. They're like, Glenn Beck thinks that maybe Media Matters then picked up the story and put a Glenn Beck think maybe and then they cut and pasted and put it in the TelePrompTer for Keith Olbermann: Glenn Beck thinks maybe he's the worst person in the world! Then Media Matters reported that Keith Olbermann reported the story that Media Matters reported that Keith Olbermann should report. So if they could just now get Media Matters to alert Think Progress and so Think Progress could report that Media Matters reported that Keith Olbermann reported what Media Matters reported that Think Progress reported originally, it would be a feedback loop that would never end and everything would be perfect in the world.

The reason, the reason this is so unbelievably entertaining is because obviously the truth doesn't matter, but even more is it is so very predictable. In fact, it's so predictable, on what date, Stu?

STU: February 20th, Glenn.

GLENN: On February 20th, on this program I predicted this very thing to happen. Listen to the audio.

Archive: By the way, this is all going to be transcribed by Media Matters today as a completely dead serious conversation.

GRAY: I know, I know.

GLENN: There are going to be media alerts: Glenn Beck announces Obama is the antichrist. You watch, it's going to be everywhere.

And it was. Well, it was on three really credible sources. Think Progress, Media Matters, and Keith Olbermann, which is weird because I say it's three sources when actually it's really only one.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
