Glenn is convinced President Biden thinks he's on Fantasy Island ... either that, or he has no idea what he's talking about. In speeches on Tuesday, Biden told lie after lie and made gaffe after gaffe — lies about the economy, the deficit, insulin, and even his own son. And Glenn has one question: THIS is the guy who's running the country? But it's not just Biden. Glenn reviews a new report from Revolver News about some strange things going on at the FBI ...
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Yesterday, it was the weirdest thing. I swear to you, we're in fantasy island. We're on fantasy island. These people don't know what they're talking about. Yesterday, he was stumping -- the president was stumping for Charlie Crist. And, again, he said, and I quote, inflation is a worldwide problem right now, because of the war in Iraq. Excuse me, the war in Ukraine.
I'm thinking of Iraq, because it's where my son died. Your son died in Bethesda. That's in Maryland. Your son didn't die in Iraq. Your son died in cancer, in Bethesda.
I -- I mean, that is the craziest thing -- he really, I think, believes this.
STU: What the hell is going on with this? This is the second time he's done this over the last couple of weeks.
GLENN: Yeah. Last couple of weeks. He's done this maybe 15 times. You didn't notice that? He says it all the time.
STU: What is going on?
GLENN: I don't know.
STU: Because, I mean, look, maybe -- you make the mistake one time. I can't think of how that would -- maybe it would be, okay. Well, that's where my son served. And he said, died. And, again, I feel like with your son. The type of thing, you're pretty crystal clear on. But to make this mistake, over and over and over again. How can anyone deny this man is lost?
GLENN: I don't know.
How about this one? Is this a lie, or does he actually know? Cut three.
VOICE: Let me say something. I want to point something out. On big spending Democrats. You and I spend a lot of money on these things. But guess what, I cut the deficit in half.
GLENN: Oh, stop. Stop it.
GLENN: This year alone, 1 trillion $400 reduction.
GLENN: I mean --
STU: One trillion $400, Glenn. Wow.
GLENN: $400. That $400 --
STU: So he has it down that specifically. He cut it down by a trillion, and there was also a 400-dollar cut he got through.
GLENN: Yeah. Can we play Fantasy Island music again, just for this one? Because this is crazy. Listen to this. Cut five.
BIDEN: The economy is, in fact, growing. In fact, the economy grew 2.6 percent last quarter. And although it may not feel that way, people's incomes went up the last quarter more than inflation.
GLENN: No. No, they didn't.
BIDEN: Economic growth is up. Price of inflation is down. Real incomes are up. The grass prices are down.
GLENN: No, they're not. No, they're not! No, they're not.
GLENN: I don't -- I just don't get it. By the way, explaining inflation. He said, it's the lowest in the world. Even the World Economic Forum says, it's not true.
And then he came up with his own definition of inflation. I mean, I don't know. Then he said, how many of you know somebody with diabetes, that needs insulin?
Do you know how much it costs to make the insulin drug for diabetes?
Well, it was the man -- a man who didn't patent it, because he wanted it available for everyone. I spoke to him, okay.
When he claimed to have met the man who invented insulin last night. He couldn't have. He was born in 1942. And the guy died in 1941!
So unless the insulin guy was on his mom's belly, going, hey. Insulin. What are you talking about?
Oh, my gosh. He then introduced Debbie Wasserman Schultz, as I don't have a greater friend in the United States Senate. She's not a senator. She's not a senator, she's a congressperson. Then he said he went to Delaware state university. No, he didn't. That's a black college. Biden, not black. Oh, by the way, he went to the university of Delaware, not Delaware state university. I mean, the guy -- this is the guy who is in the situation room. This is the guy who is answering. Hello, when the phone rings.
It's terrifying. Terrifying. But not quite as terrifying -- by the way, we're live streaming on YouTube every day. We're just trying it out. I -- I have by the end of the week, Stu, have you placed your bet on how long we last on YouTube live streaming.
STU: I've already lost. This is day two, so I've already lost.
GLENN: Right. Okay. We have tried. Anyway, we're live streaming. If you want to watch the Blaze. You want to watch the radio show. Join us at Glenn Beck YouTube.com/GlennBeck.
STU: Can I just chime in on one of these points you made here just a second ago? This is just in, Brian Riedle just released his big budget book that he does every year.
In just 20 months, President Biden added, added $4.8 trillion, to ten-year deficits. He's bragging about bringing them down. He's added $4.8 trillion to them, in just 20 months.
GLENN: No. He cut it. He cut it.
STU: No. He didn't. He didn't cut it.
GLENN: The plague. The plague.
STU: Oh, excuse me. He's fulfilling this fantasy.
GLENN: The fantasy. All right. A confused friend told the Daily Mail, I sent a text to him, and asked him if he was okay. He wasn't able to talk about what was about to go, on the advice of his lawyer. But he's okay.
The Daily Mail has found the reporter that we had been looking for. The Emmy winner, investigative reporter, James Horton Meeks.
No longer missing, he was spotted at his elderly mother's townhouse.
Although, when approached, he went dark and wouldn't talk about anything. So he's been found. That's good.
But can we find out what happened with the FBI? Probably not, because they have bigger fish to fry.
This is in now from revolver news.
Revolver news. And I want to read this to you, exactly. Because this is -- this is outrageous.
More than a year has passed since the FBI released footage of the pipe bomber who allegedly planted explosive devices near the DNC and RNC headquarters, the night before January 6th.
Okay. The FBI has reportedly collected 39,000 video files, relating to the suspect's identity.
39 thousand this is according to the assistant director in charge of the FBI's DC field office. Yet, since September 8th, 2021, not a single new video file has been released.
We have at Revolver been focused on two clips of video footage from the DNC building security cameras, that the FBI released on March 20, 2021. And September 20, 2020, you. In August 20, 2022. The Revolver proved that the DNC camera footage from the September 20, 2021 release, should have captured the money shot.
That's the shot of the pipe bomber, taking the bomb out of the bag, and placing it near the park bench, in front of the DNC building.
But for some reason, the FBI censored the tape, so the public could not see the alleged criminal walk back into the camera frame, and commit the actual criminal act.
Over the past two months. Revolver has taken a closer look, at the DNC surveillance footage, that the FBI provided for the public.
What we found is even more bizarre, and more damming than our initial discovery, that the FBI is withholding critical footage of the pipe bomber, actually planting the bomb. The original missing money shot.
Reflecting the FBI's deliberate censorship of the commission of a crime is effectively a red flag, of such stunning proportions that it alone merits congressional investigation, under a G.O.P.-led house commission on FBI malfeasance. The new findings, that we are about to discuss, however, are so implausible, so specific, and so suspicious, that we are compelled to demand that a future G.O.P.-led commission subpoena and demand the exact chain of custody for the DNC surveillance tapes, that the FBI has released to the public.
You have to understand, in this article, first, something called frame rate. Pictures, video, film. They are individual pictures. And they're taken at a frame rate. Television is, I think, what is it? Twenty-five frames per second.
Film used to be like 60 frames per second. I'm butchering these. But I'm in the neighborhood. And now, high-tech is around, I think, 120 frames per second. That means there's 120 frames taken per second, and they're all in line. When we went to the moon, what they sent back, when you had that really fuzzy picture, and the guys were kind of on the moon. And they were jumpy. And they were like, the Eagle has landed. That was eight frames per second. So in 1969, the picture you saw from space, was eight seconds, per frame.
Okay. The -- the footage provided by the FBI, the -- the frame rate is so low, that it is not even possible.
It is barely -- it barely exceeds one frame per second. So we are asked to believe, that the -- the security cameras, that are out now, are typically 30 frames per second, and higher.
Dinosaur cameras. Decades old. Again, the moon shot. Eight frames per second.
And it used to be that you would have low quality eight frames per second, because you didn't have the storage capacity. Okay. So you couldn't store all of that.
You don't see surveillance cameras operating at one frame per second. In fact, modern day, it's 120 frames per second. They record all day, storage is not a problem. Okay?
You don't get any kind of savings anymore. You don't have the problem -- you would have to spend more money, to get somebody to make a one frame per second camera.
STU: Yeah. Because you could buy Nest cameras that give you good video quality, for like $100 a piece. Now, I did read that these cameras were installed some time ago. I think eight years ago, is what I read. Still, even eight years ago. It's not one frame per second.
GLENN: No. Not one frame per second. That you have to go back decades, to get one frame per second.
Comprehensive 2021 study on surveillance footage frame rates found that 0 percent. Zero percent of surveillance cameras had a frame rate below five frames per second. You have to buy your camera from an old, rundown, McDonald's, that might have been closed for the last 20 years, to get that kind of a frame rate, okay?
So why does the security footage, from the FBI released from the DNC, the national headquarters, depict the alleged pipe bomber -- why is it only one frame per second?
What happened? This is the national headquarters of the democratic party. The vice president elect herself was going in, all the time. They have posted someone outside, all day long. Right at that bench.
This is like the Seth Rich area where he died. Okay?
Why would you not have good cameras. Of course, you would. This is -- this is the same office, that in 1972, they broke into.
Okay? This is a crime ridden area, bad.
Washington, DC, important building. One frame per second. Not possible. Not possible.
Okay. So what does this mean? This means that most likely, either the DNC, or the FBI cut out all of the important pictures.
They would cut out -- I mean, if you wanted to go back in the old-timey days to the moon shot, they cut out seven frames per second. You didn't see anything.
Because he was here. And then he was off screen.
And then he was back. And then he was all the way on the other side of the screen.
You didn't have the --
STU: You get the motion.
GLENN: You didn't get the 14 seconds in between.
So what happened?
