Glenn meets the Cards

GLENN: Saturday I'm in St. Louis, which we just love St. Louis. We were all out.

PAT: Man, it was fun.

GLENN: What a great town. Went to a book signing and before the book signing I get a phone call and they say, Marc Bulger is there and wants to say hello or something.

PAT: We're on the way over in the SUV and —

GLENN: In the what?

PAT: Is the SUV. And executive assistant or whatever he is, Joe, is kind of outlining how it's going to go and what's going to happen at the book signing. And he says, there's a Mr. Bulger that wants to meet you. I guess he's some professional sport — and I'm like, wait, what? Wait. Mark Bulger? Aare you talking about the NFL pro quarterback Mark Bulger?

GLENN: I meet him before. He's a nice guy.

GLENN: I said, oh, yeah, yeah, I met him before. He is really a nice guy.

PAT: You have met him before?

GLENN: Yeah, I met him before.

PAT: Oh, I didn't realize that.

STU: How did I not hear that story?

PAT: Very nice guy.

GLENN: Because I don't know anything about sports and I feel awkward around these guys.

STU: No one deserves what you have less than you, nobody!

PAT: Especially when it comes to sports, but it gets worse.

GLENN: You ready for this? It gets worse.

PAT: It gets much worse than that!

GLENN: Okay. So now we're leaving the bookstore and, I know, Tony Lasorda or —

PAT: Tony Lasorda...

STU: Shut up!

PAT: Tony LaRussa.

GLENN: Tony LaRussa.

PAT: Manager of the St. Louis Cardinals.

GLENN: He calls. He's a big fan. And he said, do you want to come —

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: He said, you want to come

PAT: Yeah, yeah. You want to come tour Busch stadium?

GLENN: Yeah. And I'm like, sure. My question was, is it outside?

PAT: That was that was a good question because it was miserable.

GLENN: It was miserable. It was miserably hot. And I said, is it outside? He said, yeah. And I went, all right. So we go and they're playing baseball, I guess, and —

PAT: Getting ready to.

GLENN: Who were they playing?

PAT: I think they were playing the Oakland A's.

GLENN: Okay. So they're playing Oakland, which I'm happy to say just because I hate Oakland, St. Louis beat them. And I only know that because Tony actually showed up to the show afterwards. He's like, we've got to get this game done so we can go see the show. So we go, you know, go back and we're talking and, you know, he realizes very quickly I know nothing about baseball. So we start talking about Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. He's a big avid thriller reader. And then he says, you want to go back to the locker rooms?

PAT: I mean literally the locker room where everybody's getting ready for the game.

GLENN: And it was — it's quite a plush place, man. It's really, wow.

PAT: Beautiful. It is beautiful, unbelievable facility.

GLENN: Really nice, really nice. So all these people come up and they are all the players and they — apparently they watch the show, you know, before the games and —

PAT: And Glenn Beck doesn't know Albert Pujols from Albert Einstein.

GLENN: Don't, don't.

PAT: He has no idea.

GLENN: Don't.

PAT: He doesn't know.

GLENN: No idea.

PAT: No idea. And there is Pujols the second we walk into the locker room right there, prominently displayed.

STU: The best player in the major leagues.

PAT: Best player maybe in all of baseball.

GLENN: He said, Beck! And I'm like, you!

PAT: And the story gets worse.

GLENN: And he was really nice.

PAT: Great guy.

GLENN: Yeah. Really, really nice. Really nice guy.

PAT: They all were.

GLENN: We have to do something at 8/28 with these guys because they were really nice guys. But anyway, so he came over and he took a game bat and signed it.

STU: No!

PAT: And gave it to the guy who has the least amount of interest of anyone on planet Earth.

GLENN: And I grabbed it and I'm like, why is there maple syrup over all this?

PAT: Pine tar, Glenn. Pine tar.

GLENN: Everybody was like, don't grab it!

PAT: Too late.

GLENN: Too late.

STU: That is an agonizing story.

PAT: Actual game bat from Albert Pujols.

GLENN: It was great. It was great. I can use it to torture Pat with now.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
