Glenn vs. Stu


Glenn and Stu face off in a battle to the death about the economy...

GLENN: So Stu.

STU: Yes?

GLENN: Where are you in this? Because this has been an interesting story line between the two of us.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Because you have been -- you are America's second happiest economist. No, you're actually America's happiest economist.

STU: Really?

GLENN: But you are not an economist.

STU: Right.

GLENN: You know what I mean? Like I'm, like, America's saddest economist that isn't an economist.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Right.

STU: I'd definitely say that's true.

GLENN: Where are you on this story line? Now that you see the things -- I mean, actual -- I mean, like almost the actual phrases that I have used in the last year are now being said all over, in all the press reports. Have you noticed that today?

STU: Well, yes. Some of them I have seen that, yes.

GLENN: Kind of freak you out? Does it make you look at it and go, oh, jeez?

STU: Certainly we're not in the most glorious of economic times. I think that's well covered. But as you -- I think the bottom line that we do agree on is that we both believe in a capitalist system. We both believe that companies that make poor decisions deserve to fail like this one has and we both believe that the biggest problem is going to be government stepping in with, you know, their capes and trying to fix everything like Superman and all of that is what has worried me from the beginning is really the government reaction rather than anything else and that's what I'm worried about right now because it seems like they're -- even with --

GLENN: It's not going to stop it. It's not going to stop it.

STU: I'm interested, too, Glenn to see, and maybe you have better perspective on this is that I keep hearing commentator -- our last guest said this as well, that it wasn't real, the whole Bear Stearns thing wasn't real, they didn't have these problems with the balance sheet.

Glenn and Stu are seen here in happier times. Thanks to Insider Payallin for sending this one in...

GLENN: It is -- Stu, it is -- do you remember the story we did in, what, September on Northern Rock Bank in London?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: And that night we showed the line and I said, that is run on the bank. It hasn't happened since the Great Depression. This is what it looks like. And then we revealed that it was in England. And I said, at the time, something along the lines of, "You may soon be seeing this happening here in America." We had a guest on afterwards and he was like, "That's crazy talk; no runs on the bank; it's impossible for that to happen. We've got all these systems and everything else." First of all, Alan Greenspan in his little message today, he was saying, looks like some of the things that we thought were foolproof weren't. Gee, you think so Alan?

The second thing is what you saw with Bear Stearns, that is a run on the bank, just like, remember, the buildings savings and loan or whatever it was in It's a Wonderful Life, they had the money. They were solvent. What happened to Bear Stearns is what almost happened to Jimmy Stewart. Remember when he had the $2 and he was like, you $2, we're going to put you in the safe? That's exactly what happened. They were totally fine. It was fear that was driving the market. And that's why I said that, to her just now, I'm afraid that not fear but people who are unscrupulous are going to now try to make these banks fail because they can make money on it.

Like, for instance, last week I told you that I started -- I went from a neutral. I was more guarded in my investment than Warren Buffett. I mean, we took more -- Warren Buffett's plan of what he said should be safe and I said to my financial advisors in August, "Make it safer than that" and they laughed at me. Last week I decided, you know what, you're going to lose money. So bet on the index going down. Say that the stock market is going to go down. It's a very risky bet. But I'm not going to bet on individual companies. I don't do that anyway. I don't invest in individual companies just because I don't ever want to be accused of anything. But I have to tell you something. There are those who are going to bet on individual companies and I think banks and they are going to try to short-sell the stock. They are going to try to make that thing collapse to be able to make money. There will be enough unscrupulous people out there that are like, "I don't care if it collapses; I'll be rich." And that's the thing that, to me I didn't see that one coming until this morning and I realized there's enough people out there that have tons of money that don't give a flying crap about our country or anything else. We are living in a "Me" society. It doesn't matter to anybody. And just watch it, man. Buckle up. Buckle up. Remember everybody laughed when I said, "Buy shoes, buy shoes, buy a coat." It may be very, very expensive for you next fall. Buy shoes, buy a coat for your kid in the next size up; it may be very, very expensive next fall.

Whitney Webb EXPOSES the REAL power behind Jeffrey Epstein's sexual blackmail network

Journalist Whitney Webb has a gift for locating power and hunting it in its darkest corners. In her new two-volume book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” she exposes the dark truth about Epstein’s extensive criminal operations and the connections to entire networks of power and influence — a web of elites that infiltrates the highest ranks of every sector, including law enforcement, art, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, big business, real estate, philanthropy, media, academia, banking and more.

Webb joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to expose just how deep Epstein's vast network of corruption and power really went. Was Epstein a government informant? How big is the scandal's body count? And of course, did Epstein actually kill himself?

Webb's research into transhumanism has also given her a terrifying perspective on the World Economic Forum and tech elites, including Elon Musk. People around the world have had enough of these global elites trying to control their lives, and they're starting to elect leaders who are pushing back. But can these new leaders survive the system that people like Klaus Schwab have put in place?

Webb told Glenn that she believes we're actually facing something much bigger than Klaus Schwab.

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to explain why, with over 100,000 votes left to count, she's "100% confident" that she will win against Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs, who currently still holds a narrow lead.

Kari also gave her thoughts on why the ballot counting has been so slow, why that's "embarrassing" for Arizona, and whether Republican senatorial candidate Blake Masters will also win his election.

We've learned some very valuable lessons from this year's midterm elections so far, but perhaps the most important takeaway should be that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis should be the model for the entire GOP.

"Any Republican that's not willing to look at Ron DeSantis, and see what he did and how he did it, and begin to model themselves after that is a fool. An absolute fool," said Glenn Beck stated on the radio program. "He is not angry. He is not divisive, at least [not] intentionally divisive. That's not his goal. His goal is to be decisive, and decisive people are perceived sometimes as divisive because a lot of people don't want to make changes. It is time to make changes," he stated.

"Second thing, our nation is spiritually lost. Completely lost," Glenn continued. "There is only one savior, and he's not on a ballot. Until we drop the manifest destiny [and] arrogance of 'God's on my side,' we will continue to suffer defeat, hardships, and darkness. And I mean as a nation, we are all going to pay for this. We must be on God's side, and that requires humility."

Glenn went on to say the third big takeaway is that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "was and is wrong."

"Lukewarm Republicans are not going to defeat the Democrats," Glenn asserted. "Just not being a Democrat is not enough. And Mitch McConnell should feel the ramifications of this loss. Mitt Romney said just last week, he tweeted that a red wave was coming, and it was all thanks to Mitch McConnell. Well, it turns out he was right. What was coming is all thanks to Mitch McConnell."

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck unpacks the wins, losses, and lessons from the midterms and asks, “Why can’t everyone be like Florida?”

Results are still coming in, but if Republicans take the House, what will they do with a majority? BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere argues the GOP must stop the bleeding and block the worst instincts of the Biden administration. We can’t relax for the next two years and put our hope in a Republican presidential candidate.

Matthew Peterson of the New Founding PAC says, win or lose, “No one is coming to save you”— there are REAL changes you can actually make at the local level. Now is the time to start building careers, communities, and infrastructures that align with your values to better fend off attacks from the Left. “Why be around people who don’t like you?” Make red states redder.

David Barton of WallBuilders brings some much-needed perspective and says the mainstream media was too focused on national issues; there were MAJOR untold wins at the local level. At the end of the day, bold leadership was rewarded.

Finally, Glenn shocks the audience by agreeing with Mitt Romney and apologizes for the creative direction of the graphics featuring Democratic candidates in BlazeTV’s election coverage. Just kidding. They had it coming.
