GLENN: You know what, I've got a problem -- just a sidebar here, your Honor.  I'm really torn on this story because what a crappy designer God was with horses.  I mean, what happened to evolution here?  The horse didn't grow thicker ankles?  He's a horse!  He's got like a -- it's like a car on Popsicle sticks.  What kind of -- I don't believe in evolution.  Look at the horse!  If evolution existed, you know what horses would look like -- you know what?  In fact, stop with the breed -- have you seen that they're breeding pigs and people?  I don't think I need a pig person.  I don't need it.  I don't need half human/half pig.  I don't know why we're breeding them, I don't know why we're mixing the DNA in the pigs and the people.  I think that's a really bad idea.  Now, you want to mix people and an animal?  Horses and Hillary Clinton.  "Give a horse a chance.  Give a horse Hillary's ankles."  What's wrong with us, pigs and people!  Horses and Hillary!  I mean, horses need cankles.  They have got a serious cankleage problem.  There's a serious cankle shortage in horses and I think we need to -- okay.  How about this?  Can't we just make a cart for the horse?  Can't we -- I mean, how about -- we kill the horse?  You can't live without the two front?  How about we cut off all the legs?  I'm being -- I know this sounds harsh but how about we cut off all the legs?  I mean, not all the way.  We cut them to the knees and we, like, glue hooves to their -- this can be done, to their knees so they don't have, you know -- look, I told you in the -- I'm not -- I'm not a vet, but I'm a thinker.  I don't know, but I don't think shooting them is the right thing.  I mean, is the billionaires that had these horses, I'm just -- I mean, don't you think that they owe it to the horse to be like, "Oh, you were a good horse until you broke your ankles; I'm going to sit you down if a big pile of horse, have you look at a hot horse over here.  I might milk you from time to time, you know what I'm saying, but I think you like that.  Here, have some more LSD."  I think the owners owe it to them.  Don't you think it's at least worth a try?  "Oh, Glenn, horses want to run.  They want to be free.  The horse wouldn't enjoy life at all if he couldn't run around."  Really?  You really think you enjoy some guy wearing a dopey outfit jumping on him and saying run faster, run faster, run faster, run fast until he breaks his ankles because got didn't think, "Oh, no, Hillary's the only one with fat legs, she needs those.  Next time I see Hillary Clinton running around a racetrack in her bare feet coming out of the gate, yeah, then I'll thing she needs those cankles.  In the meantime, give them the horses.  And I don't understand how they can break -- again, it's not like we're running them on asphalt.  They're running in the dirt.  From the makers of your weak ankles comes the track.  It's a dirt track made by God, and they even, like, make sure all the rocks are out of it.  God didn't even do that.  We had to invent a tractor to make sure there was nothing in your path.  And like you like to run.  Horses like to run.  Every time they run on something where we raked it so no rocks are there, nothing can hurt them and cause a booboo, they break their ankles.  And every time I see a horse at a farm in a giant field, you know what they're doing?  They are just standing there eating.  They are not running around.  I never see them running around.  They are just eating.  They look up at you like, "Wouldn't you like to be me right now?"  No, because I'd have to stand and eat all the time.  Can't I just sit down?  I think I would have to stand and sleep.  I don't want to sleep standing up.  What a nightmare that would be.  Oh, he's worrying about you are going to fall over?  It's a bad -- that's a bad life.  I think if I had to sleep standing up and eat -- I mean, and eat standing up?  I think I would want my legs amputated.  Just take you down to the butt so I can just sit here.  I'm closer to the ground.

News flash to horse racing fans.  I don't think the horses really want to run around for you, for entertainment.  I'm just -- I mean, I think horses are nice animals that just want to help out.  They have been screwed by the car.  That's what it is.  Now horses are going, "We were so popular.  Everybody loved us.  I mean, what happened?  I mean, now, you know, oh, you got your new shiny new love machine, yeah.  I mean, we used to be able to crap in the streets, they would take us places, we would be with the family.  Now they just put us out to pasture and shoot us when we can't run fast enough."

I blame Ford.  That's who I blame.  The Depression rates for horses must be outrageous.  I mean, they were for centuries carrying us around.  Everywhere we wanted to go:  Hey, horse.  And then we would give them a nice brushdown at the end of the day.  Then we invented the car.  That's really when it went south for the horse, it is.  That's it.  I mean, we're like, hmmm, you're great and everything, but you've got one horsepower.  You know what I'm saying?  So how do we repay them for the centuries of work?  Run faster.  You're in second?  We put you down.  "That's sidebar, your Honor."  That's probably the best thing about the horse race this weekend.  If you had your kids there, you could teach them a lesson.  "That's what happens to kids who are in second place."  Yeah, now how much do you want to succeed?  "Daddy, we'll do that to you, too."  "What was your test score again?  I'm looking forward to your report card, son."  I think we need to come up with a better system for the horse.  I don't know what it is.  Maybe it's universal horse care.  I don't know.  I don't know how many of these horses have insurance.  You know what I think it is?  I think that a horse vet, I think once they are really good at being a horse vet because all they do is they're like, "Yeah, got to put them down."  What?  "Yeah, nothing we can do."  "He lost a tooth."  "Got to shoot him in the head."  I think -- you know what?  I think the really good horse veterinarians, I think when they leave that, they immediately go to work behind the genius counter at Apple because that's who those people are.  They're horse vets.  You bring in your computer and you're like, "The letter C keeps sticking."  "Let me just listen to it here."  Then they put their ear up to it like they're like, like the computer's like, "Help me, help me, I'm broken over here."  They put it up to their ear.  "Yep, got to put it down."  "Really?  You can't fix it?"  "Nope.  Got to shoot it.  Need a new one."  "Didn't I see you at the derby?"  "Don't know what you're talking about."

You know what we should do?  I think we should come up with a -- you know those stupid segways that only geeks have?  Seriously, I mean, I didn't want to break it to Michael Bublé but I saw him backstage a couple of weeks ago and he had a segway.  Now, that's cool because you are only bringing it back, you know, backstage but don't ever be seen in public, Michael, on a segway.  It makes you a geek.  It does.  I think the seg -- because they have got to be piled up around somewhere.  Who knows.  I mean, mall security.  You want to look like a guy from mall security, get yourself a segway.  Congratulations, you're a loser.  I think that all the extra segways that are sitting on some lot somewhere, I don't even know, are they -- you know, are they -- I don't even know where you buy them but they are sitting on some lot some place just being rained on all the time.  I say we take them and we strap them to the legs of horses.  You break your ankle, great, we give you LSD and strap a couple of segways to you and you're set.  Now you can run/roll wherever you want.  You'll never fall down.  It will be great for them sleeping.  It's got that gyroscope thing in it so you never fall down.  It's fantastic for horses.  I mean, this is the home of capitalism, jeez, for the love of Pete we can't -- I mean, we can't come up with something?  Have I thought about this too much this weekend?  It was a slow weekend at my house.  Maybe it's just me.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
