GLENN: Pat, have you -- Pat's my best friend from Houston, Texas.  Have you read "Dead Heat" yet?

GRAY:  No.

GLENN:  Do you know who Joel Rosenberg is?

GRAY:  Yes.

GLENN:  Do you have to answer everything with just one word?

GRAY:  No.

GLENN:  Is this going to continue for a while?

GRAY:  Yes.

GLENN:  You are not really helpful.

GRAY:  No.  But I haven't read the book yet.

GLENN:  It's really good.  You should read it.  Did you ever read the Left Behind series?

GRAY:  I saw the movie with what's his face?  He was terrific.

GLENN:  Kirk Cameron.

GRAY:  Thank you, terrific.  He turned in such a powerful performance.

GLENN:  Okay, all right.

GRAY:  Man, that was good.

GLENN:  Yeah.

GRAY:  That was good.  I was surprised there was no Oscar involved.

GLENN:  Hey, we were just talking, off the air we were just having a debate because I think Stu is actually for the GE/NBC thing.

STU:  Well, yes, I am.  You know it annoys me more than anybody but the only thing I called you out on, on the break is your use of the word criminal.  To me it's shady.  You know, NBC is basically putting their credibility on the line.  They say that they just obviously don't care about credibility, where CBS will say, hey, we have this offer from one of our publishers because they want to at least maintain the appearance.

GLENN:  You know, let me tell you something.  Let me tell you something.  You could listen to Stu or you could -- I mean, who are you going to trust?  Are you going to listen to Stu or are you going to have a guy who's -- I'm sitting here with one of our researchers who is -- you know, he worked at the White House, clerked for the Supreme Court.  I mean, the guy is pretty smart.  An attorney, yada, yada, yada.  He knows.  Joe, come here.

STU:  Well, you didn't know when you said it.  Even though he agrees with you --

GLENN:  Stu or mine?  Joe, whose gut's right?  Glenn or Stu?

GLENN:  Stu is 100% right on this one.

STU:  Yes, I love it.

GLENN:  Nobody's really helping me out here.

GRAY:  He's got no credibility.  Jeez, Joe.

GLENN:  Stu, you're right.  It's not actually criminal.  Did I say criminal or damn near criminal?

GRAY:  I think you said darn near initially.  Borders on, something like that, criminal.

STU:  You said it like that before but you actually said criminal.  That's why I called you out on it because I don't think you actually believe that.  You stated it differently before.

GLENN:  No, it is not, it is not criminal.  It should be, quite honestly.  You know, even 60 Minutes, when they do, you know, an author, "Oh, let's look into the Valerie Plame story, and we've got Valerie Plame on."  They will say in there, because it's important, "CBS is a wholly owned subsidiary of VICORP -- or not VICORP, Viacom which also owns Simon and Schuster."  That's kind of important to know that this isn't really a news story.  This is a book publishing story.  And that's kind of what -- you know, you need to let the viewers know of NBC.  And you can say all you want, "Oh, everybody knows that GE owns NBC."  No.  No, they don't.  You think the regular people -- and do you think regular people know that GE, they will know, "Oh, yeah, makes my CAT scans because I've had my head examined several times."  They will know that, they know it makes light bulbs, they know it makes washers and dryers and freezers and everything else but they don't know they are the largest lobbying group, the largest -- think of this.  The largest lobbying corporation in America.  They spend more money than any other corporation lobbying congress.  This is everything that Al Gore and everybody else says we've got to stop, "Oh, it's horrible, oh, all the money that's involved, they're just trying to -- they're only duping you, they've only bought these scientists off, they've got enough money.  The evil oil corporations have so much money, they're buying all these people off.  What you're listening to is only propaganda financed by the oil companies."  Well, what about the energy companies?  What about the electric companies?  What about the company that makes the wind turbine and the new fluorescent light bulb?  How about that money?  Does that make any difference?  Damn near criminal.

I'm not getting help from anybody here.

STU:  I wasn't sure if it was time to respond.  I mean, you know --

GRAY:  You just don't know.  Am I still on?  Have I left the building?  Am I in the country?  I don't know.

STU:  I mean, the bottom line, though, is, Glenn, you've got -- first of all, "Electric" is in their name.  There's some degree of realizing that, I don't know how I got in the position of defending NBC on this, but -- and also, you know, I am completely with you.  They should say it.  They don't care about their credibility.  They have Keith Olbermann on the air calling himself a journalist and they allow that.  So they don't care about their news credibility at all.

GLENN:  Can you imagine?  Can you even imagine?  Can you imagine what CNN would say to me if I was on going, "I am absolutely a journalist."  Do you think CNN would put me on the air saying I'm a journalist?

STU:  They just obviously care a little bit more than NBC does about their journalistic integrity.

GLENN:  Oh, no, it's not just that.  It's not just that.  Every soul in the media, every single person in the media.  If I was a flaming liberal, let me tell you something.

STU:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  We would be making twice the amount of money that we're making right now, we would have lower ratings than we have right now, and I'd be allowed to call myself a journalist and I'd be allowed to put almost anything on the air.  We have to jump through hoops to make sure that everything is nailed down, everything is buttoned up, every single word is vetted to make sure it's accurate.  And I'm not a journalist.  I'm an opinion guy.  That would not happen at any place if it was -- if I was a flaming liberal saying, oh, my gosh, global warming, we're all going to freeze to death in a horrible fire in 20 years.

STU:  Right.  But that's exactly the point is that on global warming, NBC knows no one is going to call them out about it.  They know.  They don't have to worry about their credibility because no one's going to say anything.

GLENN:  It goes back to what I said to you last week after I got back from going to these big universities, Columbia and Princeton and I said, what scared me the most was the arrogance, the arrogance of these people.  That arrogance comes from, they think they're right, they're willing to do anything because it's good for the people.  Oh, the little people don't know.

You know what?  The ends justify the means.  I'm going to shut the pie hole for a minute and try to get an update on the border from Pat who's down in Houston, Texas and is following this.  Is anybody following the border right now with all the other things that are going on?  That spells trouble.  888-727-BECK.  More in a second.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
