Glenn: This is the third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick, twisted freak. My name is Glenn Beck. And, you know, when I talk about pure evil, I think you understand what I'm talking about, right? Pure evil. Usually I'm just talking about somebody like President Ahmadinejad from Iran, a man who wants to murder innocent people and, you know, do what's best for you are and your family, but there's something that I have discovered, that I think is quite possibly the most evil thing I've ever seen. This is saying something because I know evil, inside and out. I look for it every day. It's you ready? It's the DOCX file. Has anybody else had the fun of DOCX yet? If you're not already nodding going, oh, I hate DOCX, let me tell you what it is. It's the new version of Microsoft office that comes with this stuff: It's the new kind of Word file. Just what I needed, a new Word file, because my other one was working perfectly fine. Let's just change it. I mean, it has to do something spectacular, right? The other one was great, didn't have a problem with the other one. So, this is giving me a new word file. What does it do? All kinds of great things! Oh, oh, oh. It does, like well, one of its highlights is if you send your DOCX file to somebody, they can't open it. It's they'll say, I can't open this file. You'll go, what? I can't open it. No. It doesn't matter who sends it to me, I can't open theirs, either. For some reason Microsoft Word files made in 2008 also can't be read by anybody who has the new Microsoft Word because like you need something that was written in 2008. You know? I mean, why, Microsoft, would you do that? What am I getting out of the DOCX that I didn't get out of dock? I mean, of course you can get around this by going to save as and selecting safe as Microsoft Word 2003 document which is easy. Seriously. It's no big deal. See, that way both the old word and the new word can read it, but you have to select it. Save as Microsoft Word 72003 program. Why wouldn't you just make it naturally work that way? Why do I have to go and push the little button? Why do I have to select an option so the exact same program from the exact same company that's one year old can read it? I'm not a computer designer, but I am a thinker. I'm just thinking. Why? But, you know, I come out and I say, oh, the new Vista thing, that's evil. You know, once again going right for the evil thing and not looking at the upside, not looking at the right side. Oh, Hey, Mr. Grumpy Puss is back. I mean, why don't you talk about some of the advantages of DOCX? I mean, with the new with the new version, you you know, you get the privilege of not being able to find any of the old features. I love that! You know all the features that you have in the old Word that you've been using for, like, a decade? You can't find them. I have no idea. You know, it's really convenient. It saves so much time.

For example, I mean, why would I ever need the file menu? Why would you ever need that? They're sitting around. They're, like, that's so, like, last month. I'm sure some dope said, but everybody uses the file menu. That's commonly hello! Okay, grandpa. So, I mean, is that's something that I was using all the time. The file menu? Don't even know what it was, quite honestly. The edit menu? What? Don't worry. I've only clicked on it, like, every 15 seconds for the last 20 years. The edit menu? Who need that had? Why not break it up into 12 different icons that nobody knows who the hell those icons are? Spread them out, like, 9 different places. People like to explore. See, I think Microsoft aren't they the people that did Expedia? They did some travel service or something at one point? I think they were, like, Hey, people like to explore, they like to go on vacation. We can make our software like a little vacation. It's like Where's Waldo? Everybody likes to play that. Where's the file menu? Where's the cut can/copy? Where is that? I don't know. Maybe I should go explore. It's like you're in a jungle all of the sudden. It's wonderful! Vista. New horizons. Seems rational to me.

I know, I know. I'll get, like, 1,200 e mails saying, Glenn, just triple click the mailings tab and then hold down Y9 and everything is going to be fine. I know. It's just that easy. Don't bother sending them. I'm just making it up, you know. I would just rather sit in my house with veins popping out of my forehead praying for the safe return of the file menu, but I'm sure I'm alone. Right, grandpa? Oh, man.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
