RELATED STORY


Alcohol: 5%; common sense: 0

GLENN:  888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK.  You know, can I just change the subject just for a second to, have you heard the story about the guy who bought the Mike's Hard lemonade for his kid?

STU:  I've seen the headline but I don't know anything about it.p>

GLENN:  I don't have the -- I don't know what ballpark it was and I don't know the age of the kid.  Can you look that up for me?

STU:  Sure.

GLENN:  But the dad went in, he went with this kid to this ballpark.

STU:  Which ballpark was it?

GLENN:  I don't know the ballpark.  That's why I asked could you --

STU:  That's not important.  How old was the kid?  Was it an older kid?

DAN:  He was probably 21.

GLENN:  The only facts of the story I don't have, how old -- Sarah, could you look up how old the kid was and what the ballpark was?

DAN:  Do you at least know what year the kid was born in?

STU:  What company sponsors the ballpark, if you can tell me that.

GLENN:  I have no idea.

DAN:  What's the home team of the ballpark?

GLENN:  Don't know.  Don't know.  Thank you, though.  Thank you.  You've made it delightful to first do no harm to the kid.

STU:  Was the kid of drinking age?  At least we know that.

GLENN:  No, he wasn't of drinking age.  So the dad takes a kid and let's just imagine that he's 7.

STU:  He is 7.

GLENN:  How do you know he's 7?

STU:  I looked it up.  When you brought this story to the table without any of the facts that we needed, I decided to do some research of my own.  He's 7 years old, Comerica Park, Detroit.

GLENN:  Why don't you tell the story, Stu.

STU:  It's funny because this guy brings his --

GLENN:  You are not to tell the story!  So this 7-year-old kid goes to the ballpark with his dad and they walk up to, you know, where you buy, you know, lemonade and hot dogs and everything else and I saw the sign.  The sign just says, Mike's Lemonade.  So the dad looks at his son and says, you want some lemonade?  Kid says yeah.  Kid goes, buys two lemonades, goes back to their seats.  They are sitting in the seats.

STU:  Wait.  How much did he buy the lemonade for?

GLENN:  I'm going to say $6.

STU:  $7.  So he goes back to his seat in Comerica Park with his 7-year-old son that he bought lemonade for, for $7, and?

GLENN:  So they're sitting there in their seats and they're just drinking the lemonade and pretty soon, I believe it was an usher or a security guard.  Who the hell was it that came up to him, Stu?

STU:  You don't know?

GLENN:  Oh, it's not in your story, huh?

STU:  I haven't got that far.

GLENN:  So anyway, somebody comes up to him and says, excuse me, sir, is your kid drinking?  And the guy says, yeah.  Because he's thinking, yes, he's drinking liquid.

STU:  Security guard, Glenn.

GLENN:  Thank you.

STU:  Comerica Park.

GLENN:  Thank you.  So he said, so is your kid drinking?  And he says, yeah.  He said, do you realize that's alcoholic?  And he says, oh, my gosh, I had no idea.  Takes it away from his son.  Well, they arrest him.  Now here's the rest of the story.  They've taken the son away from the father because that's the law.  He was giving his son alcohol.  This is where common sense has disappeared in America.  We no longer -- we know what the right thing to do is but we either choose not to do it or we don't allow common sense to happen anymore.  We don't allow anything to -- we can't -- God forbid we can't.  We have to now take the son away from the father.

I saw the father on television crying his eyes out.  The guy had no idea.  I mean, don't you think this is a little unreasonable?  I mean, I get it, I'm sorry, I don't know.  It's like, I don't drink Mike's Hard Lemonade.  It said lemonade on the sign.

STU:  They have a picture of the sign.  It just says Mike's Lemonade.

GLENN:  And let me tell you something, I have been dumb as a box of rocks but I've been out of the alcohol industry for a long time.  I mean, I always joke about this.  I mean, before -- you know, before they had, like, really cool things to drink when it was -- I mean, I was just -- I'm like a cowboy.  When I was drinking, it was just whiskey, give me whiskey.  Now they got all these different flavors and, you know, Mike's Hard Lemonade.  My gosh, I would have been having Mike's Hard Lemonade at 4:00 a.m. in the morning, this is fantastic stuff.  I've been out of it for a while.  First time I saw Mike's Hard Lemonade, no idea.  No idea.  Picked it up in a store, was going to buy it and drink it and somebody who was with me said, got something to tell me, Glenn?  I'm like, no.  What?  "I don't think you want that."  I said, lemonade?  I don't know.  It sounds good.  Have you ever had it?  I don't know.  It's Mike's.  And he's like, yeah, it's got booze in it.  I'm like, oh, hang on, let me get a six-pack.  I had no idea.  Especially if the sign -- you know what tipped me off?  I did look at it and go, oh, Hard Lemonade, I guess that should have clicked.  But I don't know.  If the sign just said Mike's Lemonade, who's Mike?  I don't know.  I thought he was the guy with the hot dog.  I don't know, wearing the paper hat.  Who's Mike?  Must have been good.  It's got his name on it, Mike.  Thought it was lemonade with some credibility.

STU:  You thought Mike was giving a testimonial about his lemonade?

GLENN:  It's like, we go to the ballpark here at where?

STU:  Comerica Park.

GLENN:  Comerica Park's known for Mike and his lemonade.  Been happening here since the stadium was built.

STU:  What section did it happen in, Glenn, by the way, this whole incident?  Do you know?  That's an important detail to -- Section 116.

GLENN:  That's not the way I roll, Stu, just not the way I roll.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

BIGGER than Tiananmen Square? Here's what the China protests are REALLY about

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
