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.

GLENN: Yes.

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.

GLENN: Yes.

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 --

GLENN: Yes.

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.

GLENN: Yes.

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 --

GLENN: Yes.

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.


 

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
