Glenn Beck: Alec for Prez?


To help celebrate Gun Week here's a young Alec Baldwin holding a gun...

GLENN:  Have you seen Alec Baldwin on 60 Minutes?  Let me ask you this question.  Anybody watch 60 Minutes anymore?  We tape it but I only watch it because it's a habit, like I have to watch it because I think like, oh, well, 60 Minutes, it must be some expose on how evil Republicans are."  So I watch it and I don't even know why I'm watching it anymore.  Is there anybody that watches 60 Minutes?  Did you watch it last night, Stu?

STU:  You know --

GLENN:  No, you didn't.

STU:  The television exploded.

GLENN:  Really?

STU:  I was about to turn it on and there was apparently an explosive device planted inside my television.

GLENN:  That happens so often at your house.

STU:  And every other television all at the same time.  It's obvious someone did it on purpose.  I just don't know who it was.

GLENN:  When's the last time you watched it?  60 Minutes?

STU:  When my television didn't explode?

GLENN:  Yes.

STU:  I --

GLENN:  Nothing, huh?

STU:  Well, are you saying like -- because I watch sports sometimes and sometimes the TV stays on, I'm not watching it but the TV might be on.  Does that --

GLENN:  No.

STU:  What if --

GLENN:  No.  So apparently Alec Baldwin was on 60 Minutes last night.  I don't know why.  Does he have a movie out?  Is it just because he's just a cool guy?  30 Rock all of a sudden got popular, didn't it?

STU:  Yeah.  You know, it's one of those shows that I watched the first couple of episodes of it and they were terrible and I have --

GLENN:  Now you like it?

STU:  No, I --

GLENN:  Oh, I never came back.

STU:  I never came back and I have had several people whose opinion I actually respect tell me that it is good.

GLENN:  Okay, let me ask you this question.  So last night I didn't watch 60 Minutes because instead I read a book by James Kunstler.  I'm reading two of his books.  One is The Long Emergency and the other one is the World Made by Hand.  The Long Emergency, I read about three pages and I'm like, all right, I just can't do it.  The World Made by Hand is basically Jericho except it's really good.  You know how Jericho was kind of like -- did you ever watch Jericho?

STU:  My television exploded.  That was a chemical attack on my television that night.

GLENN:  So Jericho was like, it was kind of good but you were like, you know, if they really cared, if CBS cared, they would have casted better people in it, maybe a little better writing, you know.  It was like... all right.  So last night I'm reading the World Made By Hand which is probably not a good book for me to read.  The Long Emergency is a nonfiction book about how important oil is to us and everybody goes, oh, gee, we're running down the oil; oh, gee, that's horrible, huh?  Do you know what gas prices are going to be?"  He says don't worry about gas prices because really gas prices are the least of your worries.  When China comes online, there will be war for oil.  Right now, "Oh, no war for oil."  Well, get used to that because it's what runs everything in our society.  It's not just like, oh, gas prices.  It is the reason we have civilization today.  We are not addicted to oil.  Unless you want to be Little House on the Prairie, you've got to have oil.  And the rest of the world has figured this out and we haven't.  And for as much as we want to say alternative energy, there's just, the alternative energy that we have right now, the technology that we have or is in the pipeline is just not going to be enough for us.  So he actually believes that we're going to go back to Little House on the Prairie that, you know, when China really comes online -- they've already doubled their oil consumption in the last ten years.  When they really come online, when India really comes online, there's just not going to be any oil and there's going to be wars for it, et cetera, et cetera.  And America he believes is going to break apart into, I think ten different regions.  And so it's a happy -- I put that one down and then I decided to read his fictionized account of this called the World Made by Hand, which isn't an awful lot more cheery, but I believe it was better than Morley Safer and Alec Baldwin.

Stu, I have a gun to your head right now.  I'd click it.  I cock the -- pull the hammer back.  There's a bullet in the chamber.  Stu, World Made by Hand or Alec Baldwin and Morley Safer?  And I know what you're going to say.  You have to do one of them.

STU:  Or I get shot?  That is the other option.

GLENN:  Yeah.  You're going to go for the gun?

STU:  Yeah.  It is gun week.

GLENN:  It is gun week on the Glenn Beck program.  (Gunfire).  I'm giving the key note address Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky for the NRA convention and so we thought we would make it gun week.  Yeah!  (Gunfire).

So you're going to go for the bullet to the head?

STU:  I think that's the most sensible choice.

GLENN:  That's probably good.  I went for the World Made by Happened and actually kind of enjoying it in a dark sort of -- oh, my gosh -- sort of way.  But then I got here this morning and Dan had pulled the audio from Alec Baldwin and I realized that, oh, Alec Baldwin is thinking about running for office.  So it's only getting better, America.  We have Alec Baldwin to hope for.  Oh, I don't know if these clowns have any answers, but Alec Baldwin sure would be the answer, huh?  He would be the guy that could get 'er done.  That probably should be his slogan, get 'er done, Alec Baldwin.  Here he is last night on 60 Minutes with Morley Safer, a guy who couldn't sound older.  No, I've consulted professors and scientists and there is a global consensus, Morley Safer cannot sound older than he does in this interview.

BALDWIN:  Running for office to a degree, that I might do one day?

SAFER:  You think being an actor puts you under public scrutiny?

BALDWIN:  If you go through the things I've gone through in the media, like this thing with my daughter.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  Let me go back, in case you don't remember, the thing that he went through, the thing that he went through with his daughter.  Here it is.  Just a flashback memory here of Alec Baldwin and what he had to endure.

VOICE:  I want to tell you something, okay, and I want to leave a message for you right now because again it's 10:30 here in New York on a Wednesday and once again, I made an [BLEEP] of myself trying to get to a phone to call you at a specific time.  When the time comes for me to make the phone call, I stop whatever I'm doing and I go and I make that phone call.  At 11:00 in the morning in New York and if you don't pick up the phone at 10:00 at night and you don't even have that [BLEEP] phone turned on.  I want you to know something, okay?  I'm tired of playing this game with you.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  By the way, just want to remind you that he's talking to his daughter here.  She's 11.

VOICE:  I'm leaving this message with you to tell you you have insulted me for the last time.  You have insulted me.  You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being, I don't give a damn that you're 12 years old or 11 years old or you're a child or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the [BLEEP] who doesn't care about what you do as far as I'm concerned.  You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.  And when I come out there next week, I'm going to fly out there for the day just to straighten you out on this issue.  I'm going to let you know just how disappointed in you I am and how angry I am with you that you've done this to me again.  You've made me feel like [BLEEP] and you've made me feel like a fool over and over and over again.  And this crap you pull on me with this [BLEEP] phone situation, that you would never dream of doing to your mother and you're doing to me constantly.  And over and over again.  I'm going to get on a plane or I'm going to come out there for the day and I'm going to straighten your [BLEEP] out when I see you.  Do you understand me?  I'm going to really make sure you get it.  I'm going to turn around and I'm going to come home.  So you better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me.  I'm going to let you know just how I feel about what a rude little pig you really are.  You are a rude, thoughtless little pig, okay?  "To replay this message."

GLENN:  "To replay this message you have Audix."

Okay.  So anyway, he was saying all the things that he -- all the things that he went through.

BALDWIN:  There's only one thing that comes to mind, how my daughter must have felt to have this played out in public.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  You know, the only thing that comes to mind is how his daughter must have felt.  Well, apparently -- I don't know.  Did you ask her?  Are you on speaking materials anymore?  Does she talk to you about feelings?  Because I don't think my daughter would pick up the phone after that.  She's 11.  You're a thoughtless little pig.  I'm flying out, oh, and I'll set you straight, you thoughtless little pig.  Was she worried about -- was she really, was it -- I mean, was it like, oh, jeez, and then they ran it on Entertainment Tonight or was it maybe you that left the message that it was a problem there?

BALDWIN:  The second thing I realize is you can pretty much bet everything you own that I would never leave another voice mail message for my daughter that wasn't just like something out of a Rodgers and Hammerstein score, "How are you today, my little darling," you know, whatever.  I mean, you've got to really, really manage.  You know what I mean?  You learn.

GLENN:  Stop.  (Laughing).  Hey, Stu, Stu, Stu.  Oh, wow.  I'm starting to whip my kids with a belt the other day.  (Laughing).  And I'm like, what are you doing playing that on TV?  Can you imagine how that made her feel?  So you can bet that I just use sticks now, you know?  I don't ever -- I don't even walk into the house with a belt because they would beat me with a belt.  You know what I'm saying?  So I use sticks and sometimes drum sticks.  (Laughing).  Morley, it's so good to see you again.

SAFER:  I've got to ask you about that notorious phone call that you made.  How could you do that?

BALDWIN:  You get so frustrated.

GLENN:  Stop.  As a dad, as a dad who has gone through this with daughters, oh, I can relate.  I can relate.  I can relate on so many levels and I'm sure my ex-wife can relate as well in the reverse.  Oh, yes, you get frustrated.

BALDWIN:  And you realize, number one, and it's wrong, it's totally wrong.

GLENN:  Stop.  And you realize -- I just want to say here because my attorneys and my handlers are making sure that I say it's wrong, it's totally wrong and I sound totally sincere right now.

BALDWIN:  That I was speaking to somebody else when I left that message.  I mean, I was pissed.  I've been putting up with this for six years.

SAFER:  But you weren't talking to another person.  You were talking to your daughter, to a kid when you said, you thoughtless little pig.

BALDWIN:  Did you ever lose your temper with your kids?

SAFER:  Yeah, but --

GLENN:  Yeah, stop just a second.  I don't think I really -- I'm trying to think.  Nope, nope, never said thoughtless little pig to my kids, nope.  Never said... never really, I don't think I ever did that.  Lost my temper with my kids, said some things that I regret but really never, "You little pig."  Never, "Little pig, little pig, let me in."  Never said any of those things.

SAFER:  Nothing like that.

BALDWIN:  If you are asking me do I feel bad about leaving that message?  I think that goes without saying.

GLENN:  Stop.  Does it really?  Because I don't think it does.  Stu, do you think it does?

STU:  I think he needs to say it.

GLENN:  I think it does because it didn't really -- play that back because when it goes without saying, it doesn't sound like he felt bad about it.

STU:  And none of the other things he's saying would lead you to believe.

GLENN:  So it goes without saying, no, it really doesn't.

STU:  You are going to have to say it, Alec.

GLENN:  Go ahead and play it, please.

BALDWIN:  If you are asking me do I feel bad about leaving that message, I think that goes without saying.  At the same time I'm a pretty overwhelmed by the sanctimoniousness of people who say that -- I mean, I got so many phone calls from people -- wait a second.  I got so many phone calls from people who seem learned and sober and together as you are.

GLENN:  Right.  Stop just a second.  So I just want you to know, hey, you toothless hicks from West Virginia, he's not talking about you.  He's talked about the learned people, with ezotic names like Barack Obama, like that, you just hate their skin color.

Anyway, he's talking about the learned, learned.  So once they're learned, well, they can make any mistakes.  Anyway, go ahead.

BALDWIN:  Who all said to me, man, I'm glad they didn't tape some of these I said to my kids.

SAFER:  As appalling what you said may be, even more appalling is that it was released by someone.

BALDWIN:  That tells you what I'm dealing with.

GLENN:  It does.

BALDWIN:  Listen, you use words like "Appalled" and you have, and I may say so pretty judgmental tone of me.

GLENN:  Stop, stop.  Pretty -- if I may say so?  Who are you to say that I shouldn't call my 11-year-old daughter a -- what was it, a worthless little pig, shameless little?

STU:  Thoughtless little pig.

DAN:  And he called her brainless earlier.

GLENN:  Thoughtless little pig.  Yeah, who are you to judge.  Who are you to judge?

STU:  Can we make sure and just point out yet again, yes, Alec, you do have to say it.  It doesn't go without saying.

GLENN:  Again, you don't really sound like you feel bad for saying it.  You really --

BALDWIN:  I think that as truly sorry as I am that that happened, to me --

GLENN:  Stop, stop.  I don't -- play it again because he did say there that he's truly, truly sorry.

BALDWIN:  I think that as truly sorry as I am that that happened, to me it only illustrates how difficult this --

GLENN:  Wait, stop.  Hold it.  I'm sorry, I was singing the "Truly, truly sorry" song and I missed, what did he say there?  Could you do it again?  Because he's truly sorry.

BALDWIN:  I think that as truly sorry as I am that that happened, to me it only illustrates how difficult this --

GLENN:  Stop.  Hold it just a -- you know what this is?  This is the Second Amendment debate, Stu.  Where's the comma.  Where's comma?  Could you play it again?  Because I don't know where the comma is.  Is the comma "I'm really sorry that this happened to me," comma, but the statement is; or is it, "I'm really truly sorry that this happened," comma, but to me the problem is --

STU:  There's no but in there.

GLENN:  There's a comma issue there.

BALDWIN:  I think as truly sorry as I am that that happened, to me it only illustrates how difficult this process has become for many, many people.

STU:  Well, we are the media and he's told us that this is really our issue here, not his.  So I'm going to be unfair to him and assume he meant it was -- he was sorry that it happened to him.  Because that's what we do in the media, Glenn.

GLENN:  Truly sorry, he's truly, truly sorry (singing).

STU:  But clearly, I mean, if you really look at this case, Glenn, from Alec Baldwin, this is Morley Safer's fault apparently.  He's got a judgmental tone on him.

GLENN:  He does.  That's what -- I never hear that judgmental tone from 60 Minutes.

STU:  Never.

GLENN:  Never.  I never hear them say -- well, never to a liberal.  But I never hear them say things like, "But you were stealing the company blind."

STU:  Never.

GLENN:  I never heard that, ever before from 60 Minutes.  Usually they're cream puffs.

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:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
