Stu's a swinger?


Stu the Swinger?

GLENN: Anyway, so you went to Michael Bublé.

STU: Yes, I did.

GLENN: The first time. I've only been recommending this for three years?

STU: What are you talking -- oh, I'm sorry I don't get to jetset around the country.

GLENN: Oh, you don't jetset around the country. He's been to town several times.

STU: I didn't make it. I mean, I made it to this one.

GLENN: You know why? Because you don't love your wife. That's why.

STU: No, believe me. The last thing, after seeing this concert the last thing I want to do is let my wife anywhere near Michael Bublé. Don't want to get that relationship going.

GLENN: May I, I don't need -- did you reap any benefits from Michael Bublé?

STU: Well, I mean, I have to say that I was --

GLENN: You know what? No, no, no. Gentlemen never discuss this. Just cough.

STU: Well, I can't cough. I was in a room with mixed company.

GLENN: You were what?

STU: I was in a room with friends. I mean, not to mention my wife had --

GLENN: What kind of weird Governor Spitzer thing is this turning into?

STU: Well, I mean, again I don't jetset around the country and it's very expensive.

GLENN: Hang on, hang on. Are you telling me you, your wife, and someone else shared a room in Atlantic City?

STU: Glenn, when rooms are as expensive as they are at the fabulous Borgata, yes, a lot of times people share rooms. Again not jetsetting around the country.

DAN: Glenn, I have to interject here and call Stu out on something around here. Not jetting around the country, how many Super Bowls have you gone to?

GLENN: And I can show America his pay stub. I'm the one who has control of his pay stub. I can show it. Don't try to paint me into an elitist.

STU: No, I'm just saying that -- and by the way, all those games, again because they're very expensive, rooms have been shared with other people.

GLENN: But it was you and another guy. I totally understand that. You and another guy go to the Super Bowl. That's totally -- it's the Super Bowl. I get it. You going to see a Michael Bublé concert that's -- I mean, Dan.

DAN: Yeah.

GLENN: Is this comedy gold?

DAN: This is comedy gold.

GLENN: Stu goes to a Michael Bublé concert and then has a sleepover.

(OUT 11:40)

GLENN: Well, there is --

STU: This is one of the worst arguments I've ever heard.

GLENN: Stu is having a -- was it girl, girl, guy or was it guy, guy, girl this weekend, Stu?

STU: Neither of those two would describe it well. So to answer that question neither one is accurate.

GLENN: Wait a minute. How many people were staying in your hotel room after the Michael Bublé concert?

STU: It was a total room with multiple beds in which I was in with a wife and a friend.

GLENN: For multiple partners, I guess.

STU: That doesn't make any sense. You just completely disproved your argument. If it was for multiple partners, you wouldn't need two beds.

GLENN: Well, unless you guys were so incredibly active, you know.

STU: Yeah, keep reaching. Yeah, I got it. Keep going.

GLENN: So anyway, so you were with how many people this weekend?

STU: Well, we were there. We also met another couple down there, friends of ours.

GLENN: Oh. So it wasn't -- so it wasn't girl, girl, guy action. It was wife-swapping which explains now the two beds.

STU: This doesn't -- no, they weren't sleeping in the room. We just met them for dinner.

GLENN: Of course they weren't sleeping.

DAN: Was there an ad on Craig's list for this weekend or what?

GLENN: I mean, Stu, how have we lost you to the Spitzer world?

STU: I don't think you have, Glenn.

GLENN: You've gone all -- well, of course not. You know, you wouldn't pay for the expensive hookers. You just get them for free, I guess.

STU: This is such a strange argument coming from two people that I have specifically shared hotel rooms with in the past. Two people, both Glenn and Dan I have, with my wife and -- I don't think I've ever -- if Dan's ever --

DAN: No.

STU: But Glenn has. So this is a very --

GLENN: Wait a minute here. I've slept with you and your wife?

STU: Yep, in the same -- by your definition we pretty much had a threesome.

GLENN: What scenario was that?

STU: It's happened several times.

GLENN: Come on.

STU: Yes, in a hotel room as well. What happens, Glenn, is when --

GLENN: No, no, no, no, no.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're claiming now is when you and your wife stay over at my house.

STU: Nope, not what I'm claiming. Get your memory fired up there, Glenn.

GLENN: What are you claiming?

STU: I'm claiming that I've had at least one time that I can remember staying in the same hotel room with your wife and you.

GLENN: Now it was, you know, -- first it was several, now it was one. Where was it? Give it to me. Give it to me. Where?

STU: New York City, Millennium Hilton, across the street from what was at that point still the World Trade Center.

DAN: Must have been bad. You sound like you've blocked it out of your memory bank.

GLENN: Stu, you have got to be kidding me.

STU: Uh-huh. Why am I kidding? Because it's true and now you are trying to back off?

GLENN: No, no, no. Because at that time the poverty cry worked.

STU: Oh, did it?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Did it work, Mr. You were probably still making more than I'm making now. Did it work?

GLENN: No, I was not making more.

STU: Did it, sir?

GLENN: No.

STU: Look, when you're Glenn Beck it's okay to just go wherever you want and pay whatever you want for whatever we get.

DAN: This is typical liberal argument right here by Stu. He is just deflecting it back on you, Glenn. I think he's done a --

STU: You have done the same thing before. You can't come out and accuse me. I am saying here that I had wonderful --

GLENN: You know what it is? You know what it is, Dan?

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: You know what it is? He's the stereotypical swinger who, you know, is bred into swinging.

DAN: Yep.

GLENN: And, you know, he can't -- you know, he doesn't see it. He doesn't see it coming. He just, you know, he sees what he wants to see.

DAN: And then this is just how he's been bred to react to these types of situations.

GLENN: This is the way he is bred to react. He can't really hold it against me.

STU: Let's just make this a little bit more broad so I understand. Anyone in the audience who's ever gone away on a weekend and slept in a hotel room with someone else to keep costs down is a swinger. Now, I just want to make sure that your -- everybody in your audience, I'm sure there's no one out there who's done that.

GLENN: That's not what I'm saying. Is that what I'm saying, Dan?

DAN: You've got to consider. It's Michael Bublé.

STU: And also went to a casino to gamble.

GLENN: Hang on a sec. Let's put it into context. So Stu and his wife go to -- they want a romantic weekend. They go to --

STU: I'm sorry, you flew there that last part of the sentence there that were just fabricating.

GLENN: Okay. Go to a Michael Bublé concert and, you know, get all liquored up, I'm sure, and then bring their friends along and then they all stay in the room. But all of their friends.

STU: Friends, plural, already incorrect again.

GLENN: Okay. So it is just the one friend.

STU: That's what I've said, yes, several times. We met another couple for dinner. Yes, we met another couple for dinner.

GLENN: So staying in the room. May I ask, the guy who is staying in your room, does he make more money than you do?

STU: I would say probably yes.

GLENN: If I know this individual, this person is making a substantial -- is the wealthiest 1%.

STU: He is definitely the wealthiest 1%.

GLENN: He is the wealthiest 1%. So the argument of, what, your listeners can't relate to sharing a room? No, they can't. They can't relate to the wealthiest 1% going to a Michael Bublé concert and then trying to cover their tracks by saying --

STU: Cover their -- what am I covering?

GLENN: Dan, are you hearing this?

DAN: This is pretty damning evidence here, Glenn.

GLENN: I can't believe this came out at the end of the show. What we have on our staff. And you know what? You will stand trial in a freak jury tomorrow.

STU: Well, of course. Look at the way you are presenting this.

GLENN: I'm just saying.

STU: The facts are clear.

GLENN: You will stand trial tomorrow.

STU: Dan is the worst example of this. I've shared more hotel rooms with Dan Andros than probably my own wife.

DAN: This is just slanderous. This is just slanderous right here.

GLENN: And you know what, Dan?

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: Dan?

DAN: Uh-huh.

GLENN: When you were going, probably when you shared rooms, first of all -- because you guys have known each other since you were teenagers.

DAN: Right. Before that.

GLENN: So you were probably doing that. Hey, experimentation happens.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: You were also -- you also probably -- you know, I understand it. You go to the Super Bowl. You go to a baseball game or whatever, you go with a buddy and you are like, come on, let's just share a room.

STU: Something like a casino or something.

GLENN: Not with a Michael Bublé concert.

STU: Sorry. I like Michael Bublé.

GLENN: And your wife. My wife would not share a room with another guy. Dan would your wife do it?

DAN: Yeah, that wouldn't happen.

STU: Your wife has done it. I was there. It's happened.

DAN: Me?

STU: Not you, Andros. I'm talking to Beck.

GLENN: Did we go see Michael Bublé that night?

STU: No, we had a nice tour around the city and a nice romantic dinner together. Yes, you did. I absolutely did. Thank you. It was really nice. In fact, you paid.

GLENN: He's interpreted a dinner with another guy and his wife as romantic.

STU: No, it was romantic. It was nice music.

GLENN: We're not swingers. We don't follow your lifestyle. We don't understand your lifestyle. It's wrong.

STU: No, it was, it was nice romantic music, it was an expensive dinner. I believe it was at a rotating restaurant or something of the sort. I mean, it was beautiful. A nice walk through the city.

GLENN: So anyway, how is Michael Bublé, Mr. Swinger?

STU: You think I'm answering that now? You're crazy.

DAN: Because that will just be more damning evidence.

GLENN: You know what he said before we even went on the air? He said, I went to the Michael Bublé concert. He said, it's fantastic. He said, you've never described anything more accurately than a Michael Bublé concert.

STU: He's really funny. It was almost part standup comedy. It was fantastic.

GLENN: I want to remind the audience that part of what I described was the benefits of a Michael Bublé concert.

STU: You joked about the benefits. You talked about that.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right.

STU: That -- I just said the opposite of you and you just said, exactly right. Listen to that argument from the beginning.

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ]

STU: Exactly right to what was said even if it disagrees with you.

GLENN: "You know what, if it doesn't work with my wife, hey, I got this other guy who's sleeping in the bed next to me."

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

Image source: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Photo by Olga Kononenko on Unsplash

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
