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.

 

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.
