Don't mess with Glenn

GLENN: Now, here's another thing that happened over the weekend. I don't know what you did over the weekend but I spent, well, a good portion of Friday night locked in the basement of my fallout shelter -- no, my fallout shelter has a basement as well. Just in case the fallout shelter isn't enough, I have a saferoom in the fallout shelter. But we heard noises outside and may I just say that my house is really not the one to, you know, get -- you know, come in and just mess with because I turn into Second Amendment man at my house and it was like 1:00 in the morning and we heard voices and my wife says, do you hear voices? And, "Yes. " And the dog is already on it and I mean, I come down with the -- what are those called? Bandoliers? I come down the stairs, I swear to you, I looked like Rambo. I come down the stairs with my dog and, you know, I had two pistols because I was -- I had two pistols, I had my shotgun. Nobody's coming into my house. Nobody is messing with my family. And so the dog and I, we search the whole house and all the closets and everything else and then they -- then we heard voices again. About a half hour later we hear voices again. So I have the whole house wired for sound. So I can hear it down in the basement of the fallout shelter. And we hear voices again and so I call the police. They are on their way over. I mean, it was like, it was the fastest thing ever. All of a sudden they are almost here. They are like 45 seconds away and they call and they're like, are you armed? And I'm like, yes, I am. Oh, yes, I am.

They got here, and I've never had anybody call to find out if you were armed before. Stu, have you ever heard anybody having 911 call back and say, are you armed?

STU: Did your name come up with the caller ID? That's probably why they asked you.

GLENN: "Oh, it's Beck. Are you in your fallout shelter of your basement right now, Mr. Beck? Do you have enough food storage?"

STU: How many machine guns are you currently carrying?

GLENN: How many machine guns do you have in your house? I just have to know.

STU: What would you say as a psychotic killer from 1 to 10?

GLENN: Are you saying that's what the police should have asked?

STU: What the police should have asked.

GLENN: Probably a very high number at that point.

STU: You earned -- I would say that if I'm driving down your road and I'm in my car having a conversation in the middle of the night and we pass your house, I stop talking with my wife as we pass your -- just with the off chance that if you hear me, there could just be bullets flying out of the house.

GLENN: Well, I mean, here's the thing that my wife and I were talking about. The world has changed so much now that, you know, I mean, people used to, you know, throw eggs at houses and TP houses and everything else. Now you could get yourself killed. You could get yourself killed.

I was talking to a relative over the weekend and I said it was probably just teenagers and yada, yada, yada, and you just don't do that. You just don't mess with people in the middle of the night. You don't know whose house you are coming up to.

STU: Yeah, we used to do the thing where you go around the neighborhood and you would ring doorbells and run away, that stupid thing. Like now it is -- just realize how stupid of an idea that was looking back at it because, you know, you scare someone in the wrong way, especially in this day and age, you don't know what's going to happen. You don't know if there's going to be a baseball bat or a butcher's knife or a shotgun coming through the window.

GLENN: You don't. You have no idea. So anyway, this relative said that they actually -- I mean, they are a little more aggressive than I. They actually ran out in the backyard and tackled somebody that was trying to steal a neighbor's car and they had guns but they chose not to use it. They just tackled them because they saw that he was a smaller guy and he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and they watched him as he was trying to steal the car. They called police, blah, blah, blah. He saw the car was coming. He ran. He ran in the back. My relative went out and tackled him, took him down, and it was a kid that they knew. And they are like, what are you doing? And they're like, oh, we were -- you know, I was going to move, you know, Billy's car a block away.

So when he was trying to break in the car as a joke to move it. My relative said, "Are you crazy? You could have gotten killed. You just don't do this stuff."

STU: That's crazy, especially in this day and age. People are not -- I don't know. Maybe I'm just getting older and more paranoid of the stuff like that happening but you can't be stupid like that anymore. There's no room for it.

GLENN: Yeah, there is. I mean, there's room for it for your relatives because what will happen then is if you were killed, then the relatives sue the person who shot you for being stupid. So there is room for it.

STU: It's a very good point. It's almost an industry at this point.

GLENN: It is. It's a cottage industry. I'm thinking about just breeding a bunch of stupid kids that I can get rich off of. You know what I mean? "Hey, why don't you go play a prank over there in front of that house. They look well armed." I mean, and then I see this. I love this. I see this. This is an editorial in today's USA Today. This isn't 1787. The opposing view editorial by Gun Owners of America and its opposing view Second Amendment debate on Wednesday. It's utterly laughable. Although the review is unduly restrictive, attorneys say people need to keep and bear arms in order to prevent the government from becoming tyrannical is preposterous. This isn't 1787. It's 2008. We have gotten over our fear that our government is going to follow that of King George III.

No, we haven't. It's gotten worse. Is anybody -- I mean, is anybody -- they are not afraid? Really? That's the consensus out there? That the government isn't grabbing up too much power, that the government -- I mean, this is coming from the left, not necessarily from the right. Now it's coming from the right as well. But everybody was -- everybody was screaming, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, Homeland Security, the PATRIOT Act, what, are you crazy? You're going to let them have all of that power? That's too much power, that's intrusive, that's infringement of our rights."

The left has been screaming that the government is getting out of control. Now the right is screaming that the government is out of control. That's one thing America agrees on! Our government is out of control, and what does this pinhead want to do? Take away guns. Take away the guns because, quote, "Even if the military were to turn against us, the idea of a bunch of private citizens subduing the armed forces is too comical for words." Oh. Well, then we just give up. Oh, okay. All right. Okay. .

I mean, what, are you insane? Every time a government takes away the guns, every time they take away the guns, crime gets worse, gun crime, violent crime gets worse and it usually ends up, I don't know, with the death of millions. I mean, protect the homeland, man, protect the home front. Protect your own family. And also, have the right to protect yourself against the government. I mean, that's last on a long list of things, for the love of Pete. But you know what? When the government -- if the government would have said to me, if the police would have called and said, "Are you armed right now?" "Uh-huh." "Well, you know you are not supposed to have that gun. We're supposed to confiscate all those guns." "Well, then I regret calling you and you probably shouldn't come onto my property as well." I mean, come on. What, you're going to take on the police force? No. No, I'm not going to take on the police force because I think most people in the police force agree with me, that the arm -- that citizens, responsible citizens armed is a good thing. It's the criminals that are a bad thing. I haven't met the cop that says, oh, jeez, if we could just get all of the guns out of the hands of the good guys. I don't know the cop. Oh, I'm sorry. Adam just informed me, "You're right, the chief of the Philadelphia police force," which, no, that will fix it. That will fix Philadelphia, yeah, get the guns out of the hands of the good guys. Yeah, that will be -- isn't this the same chief of police that was saying, "Hey, do we have any volunteers that want to help me out? Because we're out of ideas." He actually asked for volunteers, a citizen force which, if I may just say, it's not 1787, is it? Do you know why the militia clause is in the Bill of Rights? Do you know why it's in the Second Amendment about the militia? Do you know what a well regulated militia is? We look at that and say, "Oh, well, that's just the state, that's like the National Guard." No, it's not. Ben Franklin was the one who started the first militia. And the reason why he started it is because Pennsylvania said, oh, we can't afford troops. Troops, guns? Gunpowder? What? And Ben Franklin was like, hello, the Government's out of control. You know, we have nobody protecting the homeland here and the British are going to come in and they're going to stomp on our heads; we probably need to have, you know, I don't know, some troops. Oh, that's crazy talk, we can't have any troops. That's too expensive.

So what did he do? He went door to door. He was a popular guy. He's the guy that got the first public hospital built. How did he get the first public hospital built? With his influence. He said, you know what? He said, you know what? Hey, rich people, why don't you kick in some money; let's build a hospital. He's also the guy that started the militias because while he cared about the poor, he also cared about the poor. And when the British -- you know, when he knew things were coming, he said -- and then he went to the government and said, "Hey, guys, Pennsylvania, let's, what do you say, we have some troops." Oh, no, that's crazy. Okay, he went door to door. He started a campaign. "You know what, citizens, who's with me? Who's with me?" He went door to door and he said, "Grab the gun that's over your fireplace and come with me." That's what a militia is. A militia was your neighbor, somebody who says, you know what, I got my hunting rifle; nobody's going to mess with me; this is my town, this is my property. That's what the militia was. That was the original intent. It is because he couldn't get the government to do anything. They couldn't get the government to organize anything. So don't even start with me. And whatever you do, don't TP the trees in my house. I'm just sayin'. Not a good idea. Not a good idea.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
