GLENN: I don't even know what to do with the Michael Jackson thing except to say this: I'm glad he's dead because I believe he's glad he's dead. You know, I don't think this guy was ever happy. Maybe he had moments of happiness. I don't know but I mean, anybody who does this to their face. You know, it's weird watching this last night as the you know, as everybody went to wall to wall Michael Jackson coverage. And I'm watching it and, you know, I remember seeing him in the Seventies as a kid and I was like, oh, man. He was so good. And then that moment at the Grammys or the Motown 25 or 35 or 50 or whatever the hell it was where he was doing the moonwalk, and I remember watching it. I remember seeing it for the very first time and he had the glove and the short pants and the white socks. They may have been even been silver or sequin that night and he did the moon and I remember watching it saying, oh, my gosh, look at that. And do you remember the phenomena it was the very next day. I remember the craze of the Thriller album and how this guy I mean, I went to a Michael Jackson Victory concert back in 1980, what, 4 maybe? Where he toured with his brother, brothers. And then I saw him alone later and I remember the Victory concert. I think the ticket was $20, and I was on the floor. And it was an outrage because remember everybody was outraged, the Victory concert, they were $20 seats? That's crazy! "It better be a good show for 20 bucks!" And then it all went downhill and then he started messing with his face. I mean, he was a good looking guy and then all of a sudden I mean, did you see the pictures of him in London where he made the announcement that he was going to go on tour again, and he was just, he looked like Frankenstein. He had just demolished his face. And how appropriate is it that yesterday as they're taking him out, as he's being loaded into the ambulance, there's a tour bus that has stopped in front and they were taking pictures and they were taking video of him being loaded in, dead. They worked on him for two hours yesterday. I think he's glad he's dead. He was clearly not a happy dude.

Stu, you can't relate to this at all, but all I could think of last night and my daughter was amazed at this. I said, "It's August 16th, 1977." And she said, "What?" And I said, "August 16th, 1977." Do you know what happened August 16th, 1977?

STU: No. I was like a year and a half old.

GLENN: I have no idea why I even know that date. Somebody, a friend of mine, Rob is in the studio. Do you remember, you're my age. If I said August 16, 1977, do you know what that is? Absolutely, Elvis. The day Elvis died. I don't even know why I remember August 16th, 1977. My daughter said, "That's not the date Elvis..." she said, "Dad, you barely know your own birthday." And I said, I don't know why I know. She got on, she Googled it and she's like, oh, my gosh. Now, I thought he was 50, but he was 42 when he died. So but this is exactly what it feels like. To anybody who lived through the Elvis thing, this is what it feels like, except the next day everybody on radio was playing Elvis songs. I remember I grew up in Seattle. So I listened to 11 KING growing up, that and KJR and KING in Seattle went into KING's salute to the King. It was nonstop wall to wall coverage and they had everybody who knew him, they had the old clips, they had everything that they had assembled and they put together, I think this 24 or 48 hour tribute to him. And it was phenomenal, but at this point people were gathering by the gates just like they were yesterday. There were candlelight vigils, there are people standing still at the hospital. I bet there are people still at the coroner's office today.

STU: There's self a big parallel there because I never thought of that, I mean, other than the nickname obviously. But you think about kind of like they're sort of past their prime, not really in the mainstream of, like, putting out hits still or anything like that but just so I mean, how many you said something this morning.

GLENN: 750 million albums.

STU: That's insane.

GLENN: 750 million albums. The guy couldn't go anywhere. My daughter said to me last night, she said, Dad, is there anybody, is there anybody like this? And I said she said, Madonna, anybody? I said, no, there's nobody. Elvis was the first huge star. And then after Elvis, I guess you could go to the Beatles, but the Beatles, it was a group. It wasn't an individual. So the next one I think that was like this was Michael Jackson, and there's nobody that even competes with this now. There's nobody. I mean, who's even there's nobody at this level. Nobody.

STU: Yeah. I mean, really

GLENN: Think of this you know, I said to my daughter yesterday, it was a weird generational thing last night for the two of us and I said, honey, imagine not being able to go anywhere on planet Earth, anywhere, and not have people surround your hotel. That's the way it was for Michael. You could go to China, he could go to Bahrain, he could go to England, India, anywhere.

STU: Yeah, there's no escape.

GLENN: There was no escape for him.

STU: And, you know, I'm conflicted over this because this is you do feel bad for him in a way, but I can't help

GLENN: No, I kind of got past the whole feeling bad for him with the child molestation stuff.

STU: Yeah. Like I you know, again he was not convicted of it. He certainly paid some people off for these incidents. It makes me believe again this is not a good standard for our legal system, but my personal opinion is he was doing that. But that's all I have. I mean, I don't have anything, I mean

GLENN: If he wasn't I said this at the time. If Michael Jackson was innocent, he is the most wrong man maybe in my life.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Because look at what I mean, that's the thing. I was in the elevator yesterday. I was on the air at 5:30 when they took him to the hospital and it was the first time that I think we broke the news, right? Was it the first time we broke the news at 5:30, or the first time I heard it.

STU: I think it did happen on your show.

GLENN: On our show, yeah. So they break the news that he's been taken to the hospital. Now, I'm just listening to Patty Ann do the news and I said I roll my eyes, I'm not on the air and I'm like, when is Michael Jackson not on the way to the hospital? He's always on the way to the hospital. But they showed this house that he was renting for $100,000 a month in California and I'm thinking to myself, he's broke! He's broke. And they show this enormous estate and we come out of the break and I said, show that estate again. We went to the live pictures from Los Angeles, the helicopter. And I said, look at this house. It's a mannequin and Michael Jackson. How big of a house does the guy need? A few minutes later I'm on the air and I'm doing the hot list and a few minutes later I hear in my ear, don't say anything but it looks like Michael Jackson is dead. And I'm doing the middle of, you know, the hot list.

STU: Don't say anything.

GLENN: Don't say anything and I'm thinking, maybe don't tell me. And so we get into the break and I said, what do you mean he's you think he's dead? And they said, well, we have TMZ which is very accurate. It's usually not wrong. But we can't go with just one source. We need more than one source. And so the whole rest of the show was back and forth, back and forth of, don't say anything but it really looks like he's dead. And Shep was right outside the studio. You know that blue wall behind me actually moves. It's a door. And Shep and Geraldo and the whole team was standing behind that door waiting to come on and they pulled me off the air four minutes early to go to the wall to wall coverage. But they were waiting, you know, to announce to the world that he had died. It was a very weird thing because I didn't feel bad when they said that he was dead. I was kind of my first thought was, I don't believe it. My second thought was, well, at least he's being left alone now. At least he's in peace, you know. At least he's back with God and God bless him. But then my immediately after was, he was a freak.

 

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
