Glenn Beck: Oscar buzz (zzz)

GLENN: Now I'm a little sleepy today because I was up for the Oscars. I, I can't ‑‑

PAT: Man, I was watching them until 12:30 last night.

GLENN: I watched until ‑‑

PAT: Hoping they would come back for an encore but they didn't.

GLENN: They didn't. I stayed up, too.

PAT: Hacked me off.

GLENN: I couldn't go to bet.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Without nothing who was going to win.

PAT: After that, The Hurt Locker won, you know. So ‑‑

GLENN: I didn't watch a second of them. I don't care. I just have to point out that this is what I tweeted last night because I went upstairs and I was doing some reading and everything and I got online and I saw, oh, it's raining, what was it on the Drudge? Rain in Hollywood. And I'm like, oh, it's raining on their parade. And then, you know, I saw that the best picture, is it going to be Avatar or Hurt Locker? So this is what I tweeted last night. I tweeted, oh, Hollywood, what to do, what to do? An anti‑U.S. human movie versus an anti‑U.S. troops movie. My guess is Hollywood goes with the anti‑U.S. troops movie because the other movie made too much profit.

STU: That's right. You want to take the failure.

GLENN: Hurt Locker.

PAT: You are exactly right.

STU: The financial failure of people that aren't artists don't understand.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That's got to be the choice.

GLENN: Who doesn't want to see Hurt Locker seriously? I mean, besides everybody in America and quite possibly the planet and everybody who's also blue on other planets.

PAT: I watched it four times last night.

STU: Did you really? I'm sure it might be very well done and everything but again, do we really need more antiwar movies?

GLENN: I think we got the point from Hollywood.

STU: I don't think it's possible.

GLENN: Just run the other ones that we haven't watched. Just rename them. We won't go to that one, either.

PAT: How do we know they didn't do that with this? They might have.

GLENN: They could have.

PAT: This might actually be that Tom Cruise movie that failed so badly.

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: It could be. I'm looking forward to it. Now, I did see two movies this weekend. I haven't gone to the movie theater in a long time. I saw two movies this week even. I saw ‑‑ oh, jeez. I don't even know it was a Roman Polanski movie. I was the guy, if you were at the movie theater and it said at the very end, directed by Roman Polanski and you heard a guy go, oh, jeez, that was me.

STU: Glenn Beck supports child molesters.

GLENN: Yeah, I didn't even, I didn't know it was a Roman Polanski movie until then and I saw that and I went, oh, jeez.

STU: You didn't know. That's the excuse of the day, is it, sir?

GLENN: Yeah, it is. It's great.

STU: What movie was it?

GLENN: I don't want to ‑‑

STU: So I can know what one not to go to.

GLENN: Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider. It was great.

STU: Yeah, won't be supporting Roman. I don't care if it's the greatest movie ever created.

GLENN: You've got it in some sort of pirate bootlegged, something like that. I don't know if I bought kiddie porn or what's going to happen now, but it was a great movie. And then the other one I saw was Alice in Wonderland? Classic. That is ‑‑

STU: I can't believe how much money that made.

GLENN: Wizard of Oz classic.

PAT: $116 million, I think?

STU: Yeah.


GLENN: Did you see it?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Did you agree?

PAT: Yes. You know, I'm not a big fan of the ‑‑ I'm not a big fan of the story itself.

GLENN: Neither am I. I thought it actually worked this time. That was the closest I've ever thought that worked.

PAT: Yeah. They did it well. It's really well done.

GLENN: Really well done.

PAT: It was really good.

GLENN: I like Tim Burton but I've never thought he had a commercial hit. I've never looked at Tim Burton and said, oh, that's going to be a great, you know, that, oh, that was a great show, everybody will love it. I always like his vision, but I always think he misses heart. He never connects with the heart. This one he did. It's great.

PAT: Did you see, what was that other one? The Corpse Bride was kind of a hard movie.

GLENN: Oh, I didn't see that one.

PAT: Did you see that one? You might like that one.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah, I did see that one. No, I still thought he missed it.

PAT: Did you?

GLENN: I thought it was close, but he always misses it.

STU: He's had a lot of huge hit movies.

PAT: He has.

GLENN: No, no, but he's never ‑‑ I mean, if you are a fan of Tim Burton, you probably know what I mean. He's ‑‑ I thought the closest he ever came to it was Edward Scissorhands.

STU: All of his movies are Edward Scissorhands, though. All of them are the same.

PAT: They are dark.

GLENN: Yeah, they are. But they don't usually, they just miss the heart just by this much. They just are just slightly off. And ‑‑ but he's ‑‑

PAT: This one had it, though. He did.

GLENN: Oh, it was great.

PAT: Johnny Depp is a tremendous actor.

GLENN: He is the best actor I think of our generation.

PAT: Probably is.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: I don't know.

PAT: It's really good.

GLENN: I hated Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory.

STU: Terrible job with that, and that was Tim Burton, too.

PAT: Was that Tim Burton?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

PAT: It was awful.

GLENN: Awful. I couldn't get past, all I wanted to think of the whole time during Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was, hee, hee.

PAT: Oh, Michael Jackson?

GLENN: Michael Jackson chocolate factory.

STU: That is the story. It's a creepy story. But it's a great movie.

GLENN: No, it was creepier.

STU: There's nobody creepier than Gene Wilder in that movie.

GLENN: Oh, no.

STU: That is one of the creepiest roles.

GLENN: Gene Wilder, you never thought about him saying, hey, let's go to the fizzy lift area and maybe you and I... you never thought of that.

STU: I thought of him as bizarrely asexual in that movie.

GLENN: What did you say?

STU: In Gene Wilder. Like he was so weird that the thought of sex had never crossed his mind in his entire life. He could have been a Roman Polanski ‑‑

GLENN: No, it was Michael Jackson.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: I thought he felt like Michael Jackson. Not that I know what Michael Jackson feels like. You know what I mean?

STU: You mean the Peter Pan Michael Jackson or the Peter Pan Michael Jackson? You know what I mean? Like the one that maybe ‑‑

GLENN: What is the difference between Peter ‑‑

PAT: That's horrifying. I don't know what you're saying.

STU: There was the Peter Pan that the sort of ‑‑

PAT: Stu?

STU: Like, he didn't care, he just really loved children? Or that he loved the children?

GLENN: Oh, no, he loved the children.

STU: That's what I'm saying. I never got that from Wilder.

GLENN: Love was a verb, yeah. And I didn't get that from Gene Wilder, you are right. I did get it from Johnny Depp.

STU: Creepy.

GLENN: But this one is great. This one's great. You'll love this.

STU: How ‑‑ this is the biggest, what, biggest opening of all time? Or biggest 3‑D of all time?

PAT: Biggest 3‑D of all time. Biggest march ‑‑

GLENN: Can we stop with the 3‑D thing?

STU: Avatar's the biggest movie of all time and had a bigger opening. But that's pretty significant.

PAT: It won't in the long run but probably, yes, the first night.

GLENN: I don't know, man. I would take my kids to this. You know what?

PAT: It's the biggest movie ever released with the name Alice in the title by far: By far.

STU: Bigger than the Diner series?

PAT: Yes, yes.

GLENN: The ‑‑ I think this has legs to it. I think this is ‑‑ I think this is like Wizard of Oz. This is as classic ‑‑

PAT: You think it might beat Avatar?

GLENN: No.

PAT: It won't beat Avatar.

GLENN: Avatar is PG, or PG‑13.

PAT: And it's over $700 million now, 780 or something? It's ridiculous.

GLENN: I don't know. I was busy watching The Hurt Locker, me and those four other people watching The Hurt Locker. What a stupid ‑‑ did anybody watch ‑‑ did anybody watch the Oscars last night?

STU: I watched a little bit of it, enough to see Kathy Ireland attempt to do interviews which was one of the ‑‑ she's a beautiful woman. Not good at the job she's chosen, been chosen for.

GLENN: They were showing, they were showing some ‑‑ I heard some talk over the weekend, you know, Hollywood is worried if anybody's going to watch the Oscars. Nobody cares. Nobody cares. The only reason to watch the Oscars is to make fun of Hollywood and how out of touch they are. The Hurt Locker? You've got to be kidding me. When everybody's talking about ‑‑ now, I haven't seen Avatar. I just, I have a hard time going for the whole, you know ‑‑

PAT: Anti‑U.S. human thing.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And I think I can go for the anti ‑‑ like I won't see The Hurt Locker because I can't do anti‑U.S. troop thing. Anti‑U.S. human thing I'm just like, whatever. You know, for instance, the movie I saw with, you know, directed by the child molester.

STU: The ghost rider?

GLENN: Ghost rider, you know, it was anti‑waterboarding, it was anti‑CIA, anti‑American. I'm like, whatever.

STU: That just, a lot of that stuff just rolls off the shoulders at this point.

GLENN: Yeah. You are just like, "Of course it is."

PAT: Because every movie is.

GLENN: Every movie.

PAT: Nearly. Not ‑‑

GLENN: I mean, is there anything ‑‑ when do we start to get ‑‑ I think there should be another Hollywood. I think that you could really ‑‑ seriously I think you could get ‑‑ what's the guy's name from Walden Pond that made the Narnia series? What's his name? Anschutz, Phil Anschutz, the guy who said ‑‑ you don't know him? Very, very wealthy, powerful guy who just said, you know, I'm tired of movies always being crap and not having any values. And so I started Walden, is it Walden Media or Walden Pond? Walden Media. And it's made a lot of movies including the Narnia series, really well done movies. I mean, I don't know why there are not more of those. I think if more companies came out and said, hey, we're not going to insult or assault your values or the country, you are not going to have big huge blockbuster global stuff but you'll at least be ‑‑ there are people out there that want good movies that don't suck that, you know, don't assault your values. For instance, Blind Side with what's her name?

STU: Sandra Bullock.

GLENN: Sandra Bullock. She didn't win, did she?

PAT: No, she did.

GLENN: Did she really?

PAT: She really did, yeah.

GLENN: Wait a minute. She was a conservative Christian woman.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: That's unbelievable.

STU: But only in a sea of conservative Christian racists. She overcame the typical conservative racist to ‑‑ she was the only one. All of her friends couldn't believe they would allow a black man into the house. But she overcame it. So she gets the Oscar.

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.
