GLENN: Well, thar she blows. There it is, Governor Spitzer. May we go back to just a few moments? Because the network turned off my microphone. I'm just saying. When I say the network, I mean Stu and Dan.

STU: And it was a brilliant decision by us because you couldn't stop the entire time.

GLENN: No, it wasn't. No, it wasn't. The people want to hear... I'm doing the people's work! Could we take it one more time with my microphone open?

STU: Yes, we can.

GLENN: Yeah. His wife looks like she hasn't slept in, oh, I don't know, a month.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: In the past few days I have begun to atone for my private failings with my wife Silda, my children.


GOVERNOR SPITZER: And my entire family.

GLENN: Right.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: The remorse I feel will always be with me.

GLENN: I'm sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the love and compassion they have shown me.

GLENN: Sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: From those to whom much is given much is expected.

GLENN: Could we stop?

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have been given much. The love of my family.


GOVERNOR SPITZER: The faith and trust of the people of New York. And the chance to lead this state.

GLENN: With really hot sex with hookers.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I'm really sorry that I did not live up to what was expected of me.

GLENN: Stop. You didn't even come close to living up to what was expected. What was expected? Just to do a good job. Just to do a good job.

STU: I don't think that was expected. He's a politician. I think if you show up to work occasionally and not do anything illegal. How about that? Can we get that out of you?

GLENN: "I'm sorry I didn't live up to it but it was a high mountain to climb." I mean, you wanted me for four years not to have sex with hookers? What, are you crazy? Do you know how hard that is? They're hookers, man!

STU: They're --

GLENN: They're great!

STU: They're so good at it.

GLENN: I was doing investigations on them and I was putting them in jail and I'm like, what am I doing? They're great! Oh, I'm sorry I couldn't live up to your high standards.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: To every New Yorker.

GLENN: Yeah.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for, I sincerely apologize.

GLENN: Stop. You look so sincere now, too. Doesn't he look heartbroken?

STU: Really he --

GLENN: The guy has absolutely no emotion.

STU: Yeah. And you are right about his wife. His wife, A, looks like she hasn't slept in a month and, B, has not one little, like indication of emotion. She just looks absolutely stone faced.

GLENN: Are you kidding me? Stu.

STU: Yeah?

GLENN: You've got the perfect marriage.

STU: I would agree.

GLENN: That's the look of a woman who's ready to kill you! That's not -- there's no -- Dan, look at her!

DAN: You know, she gave up her own career she gave up. I forget what she was going to be, like a doctor or lawyer or something. She gave it up.

GLENN: Not a hooker.

DAN: Apparently that disappointed.

GLENN: If she would have become a hooker, everything -- it was a perfect relationship.

STU: Who is at fault here?

GLENN: She is! All right. I mean, Dan, you look at her face. There's emotion there, right? That's, "I'm going to kill you."

DAN: Well, let me put it this way.

GLENN: If it was legal in this city to carry a gun, you'd be a dead man.

DAN: If her eyes had heat-rays, his head would be melted off like the guy from Indiana Jones.

GLENN: She may be thinking to herself, heat-rays out of my eyes, heat-rays out of my eyes.

STU: I feel like it's a woman who wants to kill her husband but trying to play the part of --

GLENN: Oh, you know what it is. No, haven't you ever seen old movies?

STU: How old?

GLENN: Like in the 1940s and stuff.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: What he did is because, you know, he's the husband. So -- and she's playing the wife and so he had a doctor come over and say, I just think we should give her these pills, just give her these pills. It's going to be a tough time for a few days. And so she's probably all doped up. I saw it in the movies in the Forties. They gave her some sort of drugs that will make her not kill him.

STU: For the time being.

GLENN: Just a theory from a movie in the Forties. Go ahead, Dan.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I look at my time as governor.

GLENN: Yeah.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: With a sense of what might have been.

GLENN: Stop. I could have gotten more hookers in!

GOVERNOR SPITZER: But I also know --


GOVERNOR SPITZER: That as a public servant I and the remarkable people with whom I worked have --

GLENN: Stop. We don't include the hookers here, do we? I mean, why not. They were incredible people, too.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- accomplished a great deal.

GLENN: Sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: There is much more to be done.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And I cannot allow my private failings to disrupt the people's work.

GLENN: Stop. The people. The people's work! There's just, I can't allow it. I'm doing it for you. I'm quitting for you. It has nothing to do with me. I'm quitting for you.

STU: I like that there is much more to be done and there is many more to be done. I think that's kind of like the general message we're getting here.

GLENN: I think so. I believe. I believe you're right.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: Over the course of my public life.


GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have insisted, I believe correctly, that people, regardless of their position or power --

GLENN: Stop. Eliot, from hereon out no more use of the word "Position." Just saying that we need to have a talk at language class with you. Not being politically correct but you will never be able to say many words without invoking laughter.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- responsibility for their conduct. I can and will --

GLENN: And will.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- ask no less of myself.

GLENN: Ask not.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: For this reason I am resigning from the office of governor at Lieutenant Governor Paterson's request, the resignation will be effective Monday, March 17, a date that he believes will permit an orderly transition. I go forward with the belief --


GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- as others have said that as human beings, our greatest glory consists not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Again not a phrase you should use, rising again. Probably -- I'm just, I'm just saying it might -- hey, you can put the instatabs and it happens right away. You know what I mean? Or you can take -- I mean, just get yourself to the hospital if you rise again and that happens to last more than four hours.


For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
