Glenn Beck: Mamma Mia!


What will it take to get Stu to go see Mamma Mia?

GLENN: What's the price? Come on, what's the price?

STU: For what?

GLENN: What's the price for you to go see Mamma Mia? Everybody has a price. What's it going to take?

STU: There is no price for me.

GLENN: You have to see it because you won't believe it. Stu said to me during a break, he looked at me and said this is just the worst. I said, no, you see us? This -- any guy who has seen this, this music is the best part of the movie. That's how bad the music -- normally you would listen to this and you'd be like, I'd want to kill myself. You were praying that they would actually start singing after a while. You'd be like, at least play the music because it's starting to grow on me.

STU: I find that to be impossible.

GLENN: No, come on, really what's it going to take?

STU: There's nothing that you --

GLENN: Come on, everybody has a price. What's it going to take to get you to go see Mamma Mia just so -- are you ever with people in a restaurant and they're like, does this taste spoiled? And then they, you know, try to get you to eat it? "Try some, I think this is spoiled, is this bad?

STU: You don't do that, though.

GLENN: Yeah, everybody has a price. Come on, this movie is so bad, you have to taste it.

STU: What reason would I --

GLENN: Because you said to me, this is the worst. Listen to this.

(Music playing)

GLENN: You said to me there's nothing worse. I contend this may be the worst movie, the worst story line, the worst script, everything of all time.

STU: The worst of all time and you want me to go experience it?

GLENN: Yes. How much? I'll buy your ticket and -- see, this is the best thing I said I'll send it out to Stu. During the break I said I'll send you out to the Colby Club, that's a $200 steak conveniently forgetting he doesn't eat meat. And the great thing is I don't know of a restaurant that would serve a $200 salad. So I'll send you out for the best salad in town.

STU: You're way above a salad. This is not a meal sort of thing. You need to do a lot better than that.

GLENN: What? Give me a hint. What's it going to take?

STU: All right. If this is the --

GLENN: This will make you feel good because everything in the world will make sense. You'll be like, yeah, you think that -- Washington doesn't make sense? Please, I've seen Mamma Mia.

STU: Do not try to sell this as a positive.

GLENN: It is.

STU: If you want me to go see the worst piece of entertainment on Earth, then you should supply me with tickets to the best piece of entertainment on Earth, the Super Bowl.

GLENN: I don't think so.

STU: What do you mean? You don't even believe this, do you? You don't even believe what you're saying.

GLENN: I'm not going to send you to the Super Bowl.

STU: You just said --

GLENN: How much does Super Bowl cost?

STU: You know, I don't know off the top of my head.

GLENN: Yes, you do. You go every year, you weasel.

STU: Is this about money or is this about right and wrong?

GLENN: How much does a Super Bowl ticket cost?

STU: Face value?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You are probably in the neighborhood of, you know --

GLENN: How much?

STU: I would say in the neighborhood of maybe $850 a ticket.

GLENN: How could I make this worse for you? Dan, how can I make Stu's trip to Mamma Mia even worse? I mean, for us -- so I get my full $850 ticket value?

DAN: Are you hearing this song?

GLENN: Against the Super Bowl, any man can last through this for two hours of the Super Bowl.

STU: Well, I will -- I do still get to leave during the Meryl Streep air guitar scene. I think that's part of it.

GLENN: Nope, nope.

STU: You are saying I can't just turn my head?

GLENN: No. In fact, I'm going to give the Insiders screening time so the Insiders and the listeners can go and watch you in the movie theater.

STU: Monitor my viewing?

GLENN: You know what we should do? Oh, we should go to -- we should go see this together and just make fun of it like crazy.

STU: I love that idea.

GLENN: You know what we could do. We could all tell our wives that we're going -- because we hear it's good. Just, you bring your wife and you're like, oh, honey, got to go. And then all the guys, we have something planned in the -- maybe -- I'm not even going to say that.

STU: Why --

GLENN: No, I'm not going to even --

STU: Why wouldn't you say it? What did you --

GLENN: No. Not going to even say it. This is just so bad, it just gives you really bad ideas. It's just, it's not good.

STU: Perhaps this is something we should discuss off the air.

GLENN: Yeah. It's just bad. All right, Stu?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Think about it.

STU: So you are saying the Super Bowl tickets are on the table? I'm not saying that --

GLENN: They are on the table. I'm not saying that I'm going to get you Super Bowl tickets to see it but I'm not not saying it, either. I need to make it worse for you.

STU: Really? Because I think I'm being undersold at this point. I think there's something -- Stu despises all Brendan Frazier movies. Maybe there's some sort of Brendan Frazier marathon we throw into that around the Mamma Mia. That could really hurt.

GLENN: I think it needs to be a public humiliation thing.

STU: Why?

GLENN: No, I think it needs to be -- I think we need to go down, you know -- I don't know. We need to go to Philadelphia or something and just watch it with a bunch of, you know, real people. You don't want to watch this in New York because there will be people going, this is the greatest movie. In Philadelphia you say, "This is the greatest," they will kill you.

STU: Rightfully so.

GLENN: Yeah, you'll get a nail ball in the back of your head. There's no ice on the ground. So they just bring nails. Just form it into a ball and throw it at people, "Shut up!"

STU: You would definitely not going to prison for doing that.

GLENN: Unless you got in front of a chick judge. "Mamma Mia, that was fantastic." Did you see Meryl Streep play air guitar? And you'll go, oh, I know, judge, wasn't she great? You go, girl.

STU: Why would I have to do something more demeaning? Aren't I on the short end of the stick here? I have to go see Mamma Mia.

GLENN: Super Bowl tickets.

STU: Yeah, but Mamma Mia, I have to go see the whole two hours.

DAN: Glenn, what's the costume wardrobe like for this movie? Maybe Stu's a walking billboard for Mamma Mia, in South Philly.

STU: You are not being helpful and you are not going to be invited to the Super Bowl, are you, Dan?

GLENN: Maybe Stu has to wear platform shoes and the Abba outfit. For Super Bowl tickets, now you've got my interest, Dan. I'm just saying. That could be good. Stu, with platform shoes and the Mamma Mia outfit, they are on the table now.

STU: You are going to be buying a whole section for that game.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
