GLENN: So we've been doing that in the newsletter, and this last piece of the newsletter, today's newsletter, I wanted to include my meal. I mean, if I'm going to have food storage and I'm going to have one last meal, I mean, if a nuke goes off and I'm in my basement, I want to have a really nice meal as my last meal and so I talked to Michael Lomonaco and I said, Michael, would you do me a favor? Could you write something for the newsletter? Would you write, you know, give me some recipes, and we joked about what I would have. You know, something fancy with Twinkies. What he did, what he wrote was a recipe, I'm not kidding you, I have been trying to get, Adam, how long? Six months, a year? At least six months, maybe a year I've been trying to get, you know, not even the recipe. I didn't even ask him fortress Pi. I just, I wanted him to show me how he made the meat so tender. It's a short rib recipe. Well, he not only gave me that to give to you but he also did his apple pie and everything else. I mean, it's just a great recipe. I was blown aware that he gave it to me. But I'm going to tell you who this guy is because if you're not from New York, you don't know who he is. He is known as one of the best restaurateurs in New York City. It was under his guidance that the city had one of its best and most profitable restaurants. It was Windows on the World. Michael was at Windows on the World at the top floor of the World Trade Center on September 11th. They had to come in early. He called his whole staff in early because they had, believe it or not, they were serving a group of insurance risk management assessors. And there they were sitting on the top of the World Trade Center and they had gotten in early to prepare them breakfast. They started eating, I believe, at 9:00. So everybody was coming in. And Michael looked down at his watch and it was about 8:35. And he looks down at his watch and he had a 1:00 appointment to get his glasses checked down in the mall in the basement of the World Trade Center and he looked at his chef and he said, are we okay, is everything -- I think we're fine, right? Do you need me? And they said, no, we're good, we got it. And he said, I'm just going to run downstairs for a couple of minutes; I'm going to see if I can get my eyeglasses adjusted now where I don't have to do it because we have another lunch thing happening and I'll do the lunch, I'll take the lunch. The guy said great. So Michael runs to the elevator, takes the elevator, gets to the basement of the World Trade Center, September 11th, now about 8:38. Walks into the Lens Crafters. He says, can you squeeze me in? Says Michael, absolutely, hang on just a sec. He's standing there for a few minutes. All of a sudden the building shakes and he looks at the guy at Lens Crafters and said what the heck is that? And they said I don't know. The lights start to flicker a little bit. The guy says, you know what, the alarms have gone off. And they thought it had just been a construction accident or something like that and they're like, oh, jeez, not again. A couple of weeks before there had been a construction accident. An acetylene torch had blown up, killed a guy and they thought that's what happened again, a construction accident. The alarms went off. A voice said evacuate the building. A guy from Lens Crafters and Michael said, you know what, can we just take care of this real quick? Said absolutely, sit down in the chair. Finally police come in and say get out of here, they're turning off all of the lights. Michael gets up aboveground. He looks down at his cell phone, doesn't know what's happened yet. Thinks it's a construction accident. Looks at his cell phone, can't get cell service. Phones are jammed. Decides, I've got to call my wife because she knows and she's going to see it, another accident at the World Trade Center. He's freaking out. So he goes to a pay phone, he finds it several blocks away. He told me, Glenn, you have no idea what it's like to find a pay phone in this city now. He finds the pay phone across the street from the New York Stock Exchange building. He calls up his wife. She doesn't answer. He leaves a message: Honey, I'm outside. I'm across the street from the New York Stock Exchange, problem at the World Trade Center, I'm going back to work, they are good evacuating the building, I'm going to go back and try to get everybody out. He starts walking back and he knows where the evacuation route is. He knows which door his staff will be coming out of eventually. He knows they are up on 106 and 107, it's going to take them forever to get downstairs. So he's making his way in that direction when he hears the second plane whiz by. That's when he realized there was real trouble. Michael never made it back to the exit door of the World Trade Center. The building collapsed. Everybody he knew, his business, all of his friends, his clients. He had a packed restaurant of risk assessment, he had a convention of risk assessment managers sitting in his restaurant when the buildings came down. A lot of people might move from New York City. A lot of people might build their restaurant on the ground floor from thereon out. A lot of people might give up. Mike at didn't. He started over again. And he built his restaurant in the only other new twin towers in New York City. In fact, the towers that they were afraid Rudy Giuliani said might not be finished being built because of 9/11. On 9/11 the twin towers on Central Park weren't finished yet. When they were, Michael decided to put his restaurant there, Porterhouse. And he started over. In the new twin towers in New York. Another landmark for Michael La Monaco. And my favorite recipe of his short ribs and his apple pie and everything else comes from this man today. He's got french fries in there that will blow your mind. It's in the newsletter.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
