The SEVERE economic consequences WAR WITH CHINA may bring

After Rep. Chris Stewart said in a recent interview that he believed America might be four to six years away from war with China, a senior officer called him and told him he was wrong: ‘[He] said Chris, I think you’re wrong. I think it’s closer to two years.’ No matter the timeline though, Rep. Stewart says China IS preparing for war against the United States now. So, if it happens, what will that war look like here at home? In this clip, Rep. Stewart details the economic consequences we may be facing that are SO severe, they’re ‘hard to imagine.’

GLENN: We have congressman Chris Stewart on with us.

Hello, Chris. Always good to have you on.

CHRIS: Good morning, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: You are, of course, a national award-winning author. You're really good.

I tried to hire you as a writer. And then you're like, no. I think I should go to Congress. What a mistake that was.

You're a world record Air Force pilot. You're a former owner and CEO of a small business, and now you're in Congress. And I'm sorry for that.

Chris, you were on all kinds of committees.

And I've got all kinds of questions. So let me start with the latest. Did you read the Washington Post today?

CHRIS: Not yet, this morning. What I did I miss?

GLENN: Okay. They said, they have one source. But they did talk to their mom before they put him on record.

A kid says he knows who the leaker was. He was a guy in this group of about a dozen kids.

He worked a military base. And would go in and just leak these documents to the kids.

I find that a little strange.

But I wanted to ask you, because he worked on a military base. And he said, he had access to documents and servers, that he could get in and see all these secrets.

How hard is that, with the documents, that you know, and I know, have come out?

How hard -- what kind of classification would you have to have? And do we have those kinds of skiffs on military bases. That would allow access to anything?

CHRIS: Yeah, well, a couple of things, Glenn, if I could. Number one, is you said did I read the Washington Post this morning?

I got to tell you, I don't read the Washington Post most mornings. With all sorts of information. So let's at least consider that. I think there are probably two elements of this, that are worth commenting on. Number one, most of the stuff that we've seen, in fact, all of it, is classified top secret.

Which is actually one of the lowest classifications. So it probably, there's thousands of people who probably had access to a lot of these documents.

And the second thing, Glenn, the whole presumption of the classification. Number one is we overclassify a lot of things.

And that's another topic, but some of these things, if you read them, you think, well, that doesn't seem terribly classified, and it seems fairly obvious, and I think that's the case with some of these documents.

Although, not all of them. My point is, the whole process only works if there's a presumption of trust. And, of course, there's some people that you can trust, and you shouldn't trust.

But it seems to me, that there's a breakdown more broadly, and that is someone somewhere had enormous access. And -- and over a long period of time, and it seems like with just extraordinary ease was able to have access to these documents. And then walk out of the building with it.

They didn't -- you know, they didn't break down through computers, and get electronic access. It looks like they had physical access. They were walking around. That is actually quite surprising to me.

GLENN: So we're seeing now with China. Some of the leaks are about China.

And us not being able to have war with them. The Taiwan thing, where are we headed on that?

Is China -- I mean, if I were China, with this president and this Pentagon, man, I wouldn't -- I would, if it looks like someone else would win the White House. I would make my moves right now, on Taiwan. Can they?

CHRIS: Well, you know -- well, they're close to that.

They're not quite where they want to be militarily.

But militarily isn't -- military isn't the only consideration they have.

One of the primary considerations, of course, is what you just indicated.

What do they estimate the United States will do?

What do they estimate the leadership of the president and the United States might be?

And it's very, very clear.

And everyone talks about Afghanistan. But you really can't overemphasize the importance of that, Glenn.

As I've traveled the world since then, I've heard it all the time. And not just from our friends. But our adversaries as well.

They look at that and think, what filling, naïve, weak leadership that was.

And, by the way, by the way, it's not just President Biden. It's General Milley and Austin. They're the ones who presided over that.

And so there's no question, that President Xi looks at that and says, well, maybe now this time -- and if I could share one -- one personal experience I had, I had on another interview.

And they asked me, well, what's the time line?

And I said, well, it's hard to say. The analysts predicting the future.

I said, I think it's probably four to six years.

And that weekend, I was called by the former national security adviser. Robert, a friend of mine.

And then he said, no. Chris. I think it's probably closer to two years. Then an hour later, I got a phone call from another very senior officer. And said, Chris, I think you're wrong. I think it's closer to two years. Having been in the region recently, I think this much is clear. China is preparing for war, against the United States. Over Taiwan. And the South China Sea.

They're preparing urgently.

And I don't think the time line is a decade for sure. It's probably not five years.

It probably is some time between now and the next election.

GLENN: What does that mean for us, Chris?

What does a world with the United States at war with China and most likely with Russia, what does that look like?

CHRIS: Yeah. And that's really the key question.

So I was in Ukraine last week, and, well, it was an interesting -- an interesting trip, I'll tell you that, Glenn.

But one of the impressions I left there with was, to those in the United States. Who we've sent them.

As you and I have talked about -- tens -- perhaps more than a hundred billion dollars.

But most Americans, you know, they -- they may say, okay.

Well, we want to support that. It's a lot of money.

But as far as the fact, we live day to day. It does not. I mean, we're completely unaware of it. Now, president Biden will blame the price of fuel on the war in Ukraine. But that's nonsense.

That's not the reason for that. It's because of his own policies.

But when and if there's a war in -- in -- over Taiwan, every single one of us will feel it every single day.

And I'll give you one illustration. There's recent analysis that said, we would have the 9 percent reduction in our GDP, the first year from only -- only from the ability to access the chips and especially the exquisite chips.

Nine percent. The Great Depression reduction in GDP the first year was 7.5 percent.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

CHRIS: And, Glenn, that doesn't count -- because we haven't yet finished the analysis on the reduction in GDP from the fact that you're not going to have container ships leaving China. And coming to the United States. Or coming to the West.

We simply to do trade with them.

When you ask, what does it mean?

The economic consequences of this, are hard for us to imagine.

GLENN: Chris, why are we not having these conversations?

Why is it, it just seems like everything just happens. They just continue on with their -- I think diabolical plans.

And nothing -- nothing happens. I mean, Merrick Garland, I know you're on the weaponization committee.

Merrick Garland has lied, lied to the committee, about, you know, who they're surveilling. And who they're trying to rope in, as FBI informants. He said, we're not doing this as Catholics. We're not targeting. And now we find out that, yeah. They are targeting Catholics.

And he's not going to pay a price. When does someone pay a price for any of this stuff?

CHRIS: Yeah. Glenn, I've been asking myself that question for six years. Could you go back to the initial Russian hoax, and the fact that Director Comey lied to Congress again and again and again.

And listen, when he was finally put under oath, on deposition, you may remember, something like 257 times, he said, I don't remember.

That's nonsense. Of course, he remembers. That's a nonresponsive witness. If that would have been anyone else, they would have been charged with perjury for saying that.

What about McCabe, what about Lisa Strzok? You go down the list, it just keeps going. And all the time we're asking, where is the accountability?

Now, there is some good news. And I don't want to be Pollyannish about it. It is a positive step forward. That is we have to reauthorize 702, and FISA this fall.

We're simply not going to do it.

And as strong as an advocate as I am for the national security, as someone who understands the value of intelligence. I would rather lose the tool, than have the tool continue to be weaponized and continue to be used against the American people. There's a number of us in Congress who are saying, we simply won't reauthorize us, unless there's enormous reforms put in place first. And it's one of the primary things we're concentrating right now on the intelligence committee.

GLENN: Oh, man, I hope you guys stand firm on that. And it would have to be enormous reforms.

Because that whole thing is a cesspool. And with these leaks. The story out today is that Biden is looking again, at, you know, different ways he can monitor and capture all the information on the web. And surveil.

I mean, we know what they're doing dependence the United States. The people of the United States.

PAT: You know, two talks, Glenn.

Number one, we subpoenaed the director and others yesterday on a weaponization committee regarding this absurdity of targeting Catholic Diocese. Catholic congregations. Show me any reasonable person in the country, who thinks that one of the -- one of the threats to you're security are believing Catholics for heaven's sakes.

It's beyond absurd. And that's -- and that's good.

We need to bring them in, under oath, once again. And have an ability to question them. The second point, Glenn. Is this. The United States has extraordinary power to surveil by themselves.

But they also have brought in the entire industry around them. You know, Facebook, Twitter. Et cetera, et cetera.

As a partner.

And if, for example, it's illegal for the United States to assassinate someone. They can't target a foreign leader, for example. And -- and tell the CIA, go and assassinate that person.

That's illegal, they can't do it.

But if they hired someone to do that. And they did it for them. It would be exactly the same thing.

And it would still be illegal. That's what the government has done essentially with surveillance, and suppression of free speech.

With the weaponization of many of these tools. Is they don't do it themselves. They go to these Ted companies. And saying, we want you to do it for us.

And we're going to compel you.

We're going to intimidate you. We'll threaten you.

Now, they don't have to threaten them very often or very hard.

Because it turns out these tech companies are more than willing to do this for the United States government.

GLENN: I know.

CHRIS: But the fact that they work with a partner is still -- is still a sense of wrong.
As much as if they had done it themselves. So once again, it's one of the things that we're trying to address, and trying to expose.

GLENN: So one more question, and I've only got 90 seconds max on this.

Tell me, are we standing firm on Congress bringing back the power of the purse?

Are we going to fold again?

CHRIS: Yeah. We'll see, Glenn. I mean, you have the Republican House. And many of us are saying that that is the only tool that we have. And that is to say, we just won't fund you.

But we don't control the Senate. The House will push a lot of these things.

For instance, I won't give a penny to the new FBI headquarters until Christopher Wray comes in and answers a boatload of questions.

GLENN: Under oath, in a way where he has to go to jail.

You know, you -- you just said Comey answered, you know, I don't remember. When he was under oath.

Well, he was under oath in Congress. But nobody cares!

Nobody cares about that oath it seems.

CHRIS: Yeah. It does seem like that's something different. But back to the original question.

The House will fund some of these efforts. And I think we will be broad and deep in some of those. Of course, then that budget goes to the Senate. And we'll see what Schumer does. Because you know what he'll do. And he won't.

And that's where the fight will take place. That's -- you know, we won't know the answer to that, until sometime this summer or this fall, when we actually have to fund the government, and we'll see how strong Republicans will stand.

GLENN: Chris, thank you very much.

I can't imagine being any of you guys who are trying to do your best in Washington. I just can't imagine the frustration, but thank you.

CHRIS: Glenn, I should have taken a job and come and worked with you.

GLENN: I know you should have.

Huge mistake. I told you. All right. Chris, thank you so much.

Control Freaks: The 'Scientific' Roots of Progressive Tyranny | The Beck Story | Ep 1

How did unelected “experts” with their unwavering devotion to “science” rise to such power in American life? More than a century ago, an engineer named Frederick W. Taylor inspired progressive activists with a new concept he called “scientific management.” Future Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis took Taylor’s concept and married it with political power. Brandeis teamed up with President Woodrow Wilson and a powerful senator named Robert La Follette to give the nation an “expert” makeover that Americans were not asking for. This is the story of how a cult of expertise developed among progressives and how these “experts” took a sledgehammer to our constitutional system of government, with far-reaching consequences that still reverberate today.

Why Biden Won't Stop "Racist" Government DEI Programs, But Trump Would

Former president Donald Trump has proposed an idea to abolish the income tax and replace it with more tariffs on foreign goods. Is this a good strategy if Trump wins the presidency? Sen. JD Vance gives Glenn his take: "We want to tax production less. We want to tax making stuff in China more...it's a really smart idea to reward [Americans] for making things." Plus, Sen. Vance details his proposal to dismantle ALL federal DEI programs: "The way that our federal government has interpreted [diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives] is to explicitly allow racist decision making."

And J.D. Vance is on the phone with us. J.D. Vance, senator from Ohio. Also a short list. For Donald Trump.

I'm sure he's going to -- he's just dying to talk about that. Because they always are. Everybody on the short list. They're like, oh, please, ask me about that. So, go ahead.

Spill it. Spill the beans. Spill the beans.

J.D.: My favorite topic.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

J.D.: I said this, Glenn. I have not talked about Trump about it. Yes, I am aware that they're looking at me. And I think they're probably looking at 20 other people. And I'm sure they will make this decision. And if it's me, like I said, repeatedly, I would be interested in it, because I think it's important to help him. Because if he doesn't win this election, this country is in a tough spot. So that's pretty much it.

GLENN: Now, you were in the meeting with him yesterday, right?

J.D.: I was, yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. Because he said, the guy I'm going to pick is most likely in this room with us now.

J.D.: Oh, I didn't see that.

But unfortunately, for the oddsmakers, there were like 49 other people in the room. So it doesn't help.

GLENN: Yeah. So tell me a little --

J.D.: Yeah. Let me just sort of set the stage. One is a very positive meeting. You obviously have people who are more allied with the president and his agenda. You know, like me and Bill Hagerty and Marco Rubio and so forth.

And you also have people in the rooms, who are very -- you know, even in the last couple of months, have been very critical of the president.

And I think what you saw is just a recognition that we have to unify to the Republican Party. When there's an election.

GLENN: Thank you.

J.D.: And look, there are guys that are running, that I wish their primary opponents had won. And I wish we had a different candidate representing the Republican Party. But there isn't a single person running, at least in the Senate, who I would rather have as a Democrat take their spot.

The other thing that is really interesting, Glenn. You have to realize, the internal psychology of Republican senators right now. They're looking at every single one of these Senate ballots, in the polls.

Suggest that whether it's by five points or 15 points, our Senate candidates are running behind Donald Trump, in the core battle states. If we actually want to take back the Senate with a solid majority.

We need the president to help us close the margin between our guys and his margins.

And I think he will help us do that. As we get down the stretch here.

There's just a recognition here. That you happen into something, especially into this cycle. And if we can get that thing to reverberate to the benefit of our Senate candidate, we can win a major, major victory in the United States Senate.

GLENN: And he was -- he was really kind of conciliatory yesterday. He seemed to be in good spirits.

And, you know, recognizing that we -- you know, we don't all agree on everything.

At least that was the impression that I got from his conversation.

Would you -- would you agree with that?

JASON: Yeah. I agree with that, Glenn. He was extremely friendly.

He was obviously in a good mood. I think, you know, he made -- he was very friendly to Mitch McConnell, of course, who has not always been the best ally of Donald Trump.

He was friendly to everybody in the room. And, you know, he said like, look, even when we disagree, our disagreements pale in comparison to the Democrats.

And we're at this stage. And, you know, I've done this now, Glenn, twice. I've been in politics for two cycles. Where right now, we're sort of in the hurt feelings stage.

Where a lot of people who didn't win primaries, grassroots activists, donors, state chairmen and so forth, they're kind of frustrated. And they're exhausted from the primary season.

And they're not thinking about the future. And I just think, you know, Trump is maybe the only guy in the party who can kind of stand before everybody and say, look. Yeah. Maybe your guy didn't win. Maybe we haven't agreed on everything.

But now it's time to save the country. And to do that, we have to win.

GLENN: He said yesterday, that he was. And I'm going to get to something that you want to talk about. The DEI programs going away, which is so important.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We'll get to you in a second. But one more question on this meeting yesterday with Trump.

He said that he wanted to abolish the income tax, and replace it with tariffs.

J.D.: So that was not in our meeting. I think it may have been in another meeting that take. I saw the headline. That was not in our meeting.

Look, this is a fascinating proposal. And we can talk for a while about it.

But, you know, we have to sort of think about, when we tax something, we get less of it.

And we should ask ourselves. We have to raise revenues for the military. And Social Security and so forth.

GLENN: Correct.

J.D.: What do we actually want to raise revenues from? And my view would be, we want to tax production less. We want to tax making stuff in China more.

Well, that's what a tariff fundamentally does. Whether you get rid of the whole income tax. I think it's a really smart idea to say, we want to reward people for making things. We want to reward productive work. We don't want to reward making stuff in the home country of our chief rival.

And I think that's fundamentally where Trump's head is on this matter.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, I will tell you, I think if we don't take control of the Senate and the House and the White House, we're just going to be treading water at best.

If they win those, we are -- we are done.

They have -- they have put so many deadly fruit trees in all of our agencies, and all of our government.

That I just don't see us being able to survive it. The fundamental transformation will be finished, in the next term.

And you have introduced legislation to dismantle all of the federal DEI programs, from the federal government.

Thank you!

J.D.: Yeah. We have. And to your point about the Senate, Glenn, this -- the Senate, of course, we approved all of the political appointees. And if you want to root out the Deep State of the bureaucracy, you need political appointees who are aligned with the agenda.

And what this legislation does. I'm not an idiot. Joe Biden will not sign it, but Donald Trump would.

And what it would do is really destroy the diversity, equity, and inclusion bureaucracy that exists in our country. And people say, well, who doesn't like diversity, right?

Doesn't diversity mean, you have my Mexican restaurant down the street.

No. The way the federal government has interpreted this. Is to explicitly allow racist decision-making. Primarily targeting white and Asian-Americans. Now in the 21st century.

But explicitly racist decision-making. And contracting and hiring in the provision of grants. Some of these programs, by the way, have been held flatly illegal by the federal courts. For example, there was a farm program, that explicitly excluded white Americans from the provision of farm assistants to our farmers, and that's ridiculous.

You can't discriminate, whether black or white, against people on the basis of their skin color.

This would proactively root this stuff out of our government, and it's a very important first step to getting basic merit back in our federal system, Glenn.

GLENN: Yeah, and I don't think even black farmers would -- would have wanted that.

I mean, maybe some would. But, you know, farmers rely on each other.

And they need to help each other.

Because, you know, if Bill's crop is down year. It might be my crop down this year.

We're all in this together. The last thing you want is now new racial barriers between neighbors.

Where he gets the help from the government, and we don't. It's not a good idea.

GLENN: It's not a good idea at all, Glenn.

And to your point about how black farmers feel about this stuff. If you look at public polling on this. What you consistently find is that black Americans.

And most Americans don't like racial quote as. They don't like racial discrimination. Whether it benefits them. Their group or harms their group.

One group of Americans that seems to really like racial quote as are very high education, white Americans.

GLENN: White. I know.

J.D.: That is the one group. That is the one group that seems -- by the way, they're not going to lose out, when the quota system comes out. Because they pull all the strings.

But they're not doing it for the good of the country. I think they're fundamentally doing it because they look down -- they look down on white Americans who don't have their same education status.

And a lot of -- one of my theories, Glenn. A lot of what is broken about America. High education whites who really hate low education whites.

And I think you see this as a main driver of a lot of very stupid public policy. And, frankly, a lot of very evil public policy in this country. So we have to root it out. That's what I'm trying to do.

GLENN: I mean, it's really -- I mean, this -- can it wasn't like this before. Because our education system was much more local. You know, and -- and not as -- you know, you didn't have all of the smart people, going to this one college. And so they were only surrounded by really, really smart people.

And then get married to the same kind of thinking. You know, you would have a great disparity in -- in education and experience in families.

All the time.

But now, the elites, they wouldn't marry into a farming family. They don't understand it. They don't like it, generally speaking.

JASON: No. That's right. Glenn, so there is this real classism, right?

I think that's a much bigger problem than racism in modern America. But it's actually made our American system much stupider. Because to your point, you know, the smart kids would be woo become doctors and lawyers and engineers. And the kids who didn't like school as much, would sort of do something else. Sort of everybody lived together and worked together. And the community kind of worked together.

When you silo people by education, what we find is that we send people to colleges, and they don't get good training in useful skills.

They increasingly get indoctrinated in how to be crazy people.

Even the educational institutions stop serving their function. When you stratify this thing in a way.

And I think you're seeing evidence of that in our country right now.

GLENN: What are the chances that this even passes?

I know Biden will not sign it. But you think it will even get passed?

J.D.: Look, I don't think it will get out of the Senate. I think the House will support this.

What we're trying to do is plant seeds. One of the things that happened in the 2016 campaign, is Republicans really expected Trump to lose. So when he actually won, there wasn't the foundational work that had been done, to make the -- the -- you know, just to pass a bunch of legislation.

GLENN: Good. Good.

J.D.: We're trying to do that. We're trying to set up the next administration for success.

And at the very least, have a debate about what kind of country we want. Do we want a country that discriminates based on race? I think the answer is no, and I think 90 percent of people agree with me.

GLENN: Do you believe that the -- the next administration can fire enough people, to make a difference in the Deep State?

BRIDGET: I do, Glenn. But it will be one of the most important fights.

I think the two things that hopefully President Trump does in his second term. And I know he wants to do. That will cause massive backlash from the media. We need to support a large number of illegal immigrants that have come here the last number of years.

And we also really need to root out the federal bureaucracy, to make it more responsive. To make it smaller.

But to make it really democratically accountable to the people elected president.

The media will howl about this stuff. They will call it fascism. They will call it every name in the book.

GLENN: It's the opposite!

J.D.: It's the opposite. Exactly. It's accountability.

That's the opposite of fascism. And, frankly, we have fascism at the bureaucratic level. Where people's lives are controlled by people they never elected, right?

That's not democracy. That's not the Republican form of government. So look, this is the most important thing structurally that we have to fix at the government.

I think Trump is committed to it.

And I think the question is: Do you have enough Republicans in there, who have the willpower and the courage to fight alongside of them? And I think that's the big question.

GLENN: I hope -- yeah, well, we have a lot of people like you, where when we did the Tea Party thing years ago, we didn't -- we didn't have -- we just didn't have the people in there, who really, truly had the foundation that they had been thinking about for a long time.

And I think we do now. We have a lot of really good people. We need more. But this is the best chance, of success, that I've seen in -- in a very long time.

The Tea Party turned out to be, you know, we were really fighting the -- the Deep State, in the Republican Party. And I think that one is on its last legs.
(music)

J.D.: We need to win the fight, Glenn. If we don't, I think we could really lose our country.

GLENN: Yes. I agree. JD. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. Senator J.D. Vance from Ohio. This is a good seed planting. Because DEI does need to go from all of our federal agencies and federal programs.

Thank you so much, J.D. Appreciate it.

Did Biden Have a Senior Moment In Front of G7 World Leaders?

President Biden's appearance at the G7 summit is turning heads. One video that went viral on social media shows a dazed-looking Biden moving incredibly slowly while watching parachuters, and the Prime Minister of Italy even had to help him. Glenn reviews this senior moment, as well as some of the other ones Biden has had just in the past week! Plus, Glenn reviews Biden's latest announcements about sending even more taxpayer dollars to Ukraine.

GLENN: Good thing the G7 you summit where all of the big leaders get together and, you know, have a powwow and talk about, what we're going to do to cause some more war and higher inflation!

They got together, and they were watching a -- just a fantastic skydiving event. That was done for -- for them. Now, remember, I just -- just remember, these are the ones that are always saying, global warming! Global warming!

So not only did they fly over in their own planes, to get together. But then, they sent an airplane up with people in it, to jump out, for their entertainment.

So I'm taking them seriously. But they're all standing there on an open field, watching these guys come down, except for -- except for Joe Biden.

He watches for a while. And then he decides, eh. Squirrel.

And he starts to meander and walk away from. And it's -- it's incredible footage to watch.

Because you can see none of the prime ministers or presidents, know what to do. As he just wanders off. He's facing the wrong direction.

And you see Prime Minister Maloney from Italy, she's the only one that gracefully knows how to get him out. She kind of backs out. And then grabs him. Like over here. We have cookies.

Who wants a cookie?

Look at cookies. Say cookie.

It is -- it is horrifying how bad he is.

And then he puts his glasses on, at twice the speed that it takes for him to sit down at ceremonies.

I don't know if you remember that footage, from earlier this week. Last weekend, where he was trying to sit down. Looked like he crapped his pants. He didn't crap his pants.

He was just deciding, should I sit down?

Or not? Maybe I should stand. Okay?

That's what was going true his head. He must know whether he was -- he started to sit town. Then he was like, oh, nobody else is.

You just stand up, man. You just stand back up. It's no big deal. We've all done it.

But he just froze. Like, I'm thinking.

When he's putting his sunglasses on, he's like, I have to lift my arm.

The pressure on my gun glasses enough, to keep them held up, so I can put them on now on my face over my ears. Done.

What do they -- honestly, what do they Jack him up with?

Because they've got to Jack him up with something.

Because there's no way. That's not the guy who speaks to us in like major interviews.

Or when he believes in to address empress, for the State of the Union. He's like, hey, man.

I have to tell you, everything is going great. I mean, save our economy is great. I don't know what they're putting him on, but that ain't Joe Biden. Yeah, shocking. Shocking.

JASON: The difference is shocking. In the interviews, he's with it. But when he gets on a stage. Maybe he's just allergic to stages. I don't really know what it is.

GLENN: Or in this case, it's a field.

JASON: Field. Yeah. It's that -- remember that, when he was just -- when he got stuck in that one facial expression!

When he was -- what was that event at the White House or whatever? For Juneteenth. It was stuck. It was like everything just stopped.

GLENN: Yeah. Can you play that?

Do we have that video from earlier this week? I'm not sure we still have that.

But that video from him from the Juneteenth celebration, that happened actually the last weekend. The weekend before was, I'm going to sit -- so it's once a week, we're getting these major things.

And he was standing at Juneteenth. And everybody was moving with the music and everything else.

That he had joker smile on him.

Go ahead and roll that, will you?

He had this joker smile on his face. No. That's not it.
(music)

That's another great one too. He has this joker smile on him, that doesn't move.

He's like, I -- I am happy to be here. And everybody is happy. Jill told me to keep smiling. So I'm smiling. I'm smiling.

That's all I'm doing. Smile. Smile. Smile. She didn't tell me to move.

And smile. I'm just smiling. And not moving.

JASON: That's just creepy.

GLENN: It is creepy. He is -- you know who looks more LifeLock?

The audio-animatronic Joe Biden. It will be one in Disney, that's like, man, they nailed him! They didn't get better. He just always looks like he's an audio-animatronic.

JASON: Yeah. I don't want to guess what might be wrong with him.

But my father had lupus. And he would have like little micro strokes.

And it just, all of a sudden, he would just check out. He would kind of stop and kind of gaze. And what he was doing, he was having micro strokes. And that is eerily similar from what I saw from him.

GLENN: Well, this is -- one of my daughters, you know, Mary, she has not significant strokes.

Or, significant seizures.

And this -- this really cutting edge procedure, that I wouldn't have done.

She chose to do it.

I would have been too afraid.

Because they said to her. You may wake up. And you may not recognize anybody.

You may not be able to speak. Or know people's names.

I mean, we don't know what we're doing here.

But we think we know what we're doing. But we don't. And brave girl, she was like, do it!

I don't want to live like this anymore.

Just do it.

So they did. And she was seizure free, for about two years.

And now they've come back. Pretty hard.

And hers are really getting grand mal-ish.

My other daughter has a seizure, where she is like Joe Biden, but just a very short period of time.

Where she's like, and you're like, hello!

Hello.

What?

And we didn't for a long time. Didn't know they were seizures. Probably like your dad. We didn't know.

Just thought he drifted for a minute.

And, yeah, but that's not.

I think he's just gone. I think he's just gone. Here's Biden yesterday, promising Ukraine, a lot more money! Great.

BIDEN: By the way, the idea that we had to wait until we passed the legislation overall, maybe held up by a small majority of our Republican colleagues, is just terrible. And there's a lot more money --

GLENN: Can you stop? Can you stop?

Play that again. I want you to listen to what the president of the United States just said. Listen again.

BIDEN: By the way, the idea that we had to wait until we passed the legislation overall, held up by a small majority of our Republican colleagues.

GLENN: Stop!

The idea that we had to wait, for Congress to pass this, before we could do it, is just horrible.

That's the constitutional process, dude!

He's complaining that you have to wait before you spend money on something that's controversial!

What is that?

That's the cry of a dictator. Now, you can say, because of our system, we had to wait.

And, you know, it's just the way -- you know, a republic, and a democracy, it's not pretty all the time. As Churchill said. It's the worst, until you compare it to everything else.

And then you realize, it's the best. It's the best of the worst.

You know, sorry we had to delay on that. But we have certain things that we have to do.

But the money is there now.

No! He's saying the very idea that we had to wait. Do you know that famous speech from FDR?

A date that will live in infamy?

Do you know what that speech was? That speech was for the president to make that case in front of Congress, to go to war!

There was never a clearer at least, you know, in the last 100 years. There's no clearer declaration of war, than bombing Pearl Harbor. Right?

Bombing all of our ships.

Today, we would have just launched!

The president back then. This is how far we've drifted.

The president back then, even after Pearl Harbor, went the very next day to Congress.

And gave that speech. And then they voted. The very idea that we have to vote on things in Congress. I've done everything I can to make Congress and the Constitution just, you know, a rubber stamp.

But I'm not there yet. So let me promise you, that there's a lot more money coming. Oh, my gosh.

JASON: That's an interesting point you make.

I caught him do this in the past. These very fundamental beliefs in the past. They clearly just do not believe in.

Like, every time he threatens us with the F-15 remark that he said about 60,000 times. I never really got annoyed that it was a threat.

I never really took it that way. What really annoyed me, was he is making fun of the fundamental, you know, right of self-defense, that we have in this country.

The fundamental right, that if there ever becomes a tyrant, you have the tools to stand up and push back, and say no.

You have that right to put -- go ahead.

GLENN: You not only have the right, as it says in the Declaration of Independence. You have the duty, to overthrow the shackles of a tyrant.

JASON: Yes.

GLENN: And you're right. But, Jason, as somebody who was in Afghanistan, right after 9/11, I don't know.

Those F-15s. Everything that we -- everything that we threw at them. They're still in charge of Afghanistan, aren't they?


JASON: Yeah. I don't think F-15s help them out too much.

Neither do the Northern Vietnamese.

History is full of insurgencies that have been successful. You know, on this Ukraine funding thing, we've done multiple different shows on some of this stuff.

And what will shock you. If you just kind of look and try to trace some of these funds.

Whether they're coming from Congress, or some other agency within this government.

It is everywhere!

Like, just look at the news. You'll look, it's like, oh, Secretary Blinken was in Ukraine yesterday.

He promised 200 million. Yeah. Where did that come from?

Congress did not approve that.

GLENN: That's the -- that's the chevron case. That's the chevron case.

They can't do that! Only Congress has the purse strings. Only Congress can issue more spending. It must start in Congress.

We've completely disregarded the Constitution.

It's not only hanging from a thread.

I think the thread is so frayed that it's broken. And we're not even using it at all. Or we're the closing that we've ever been to absolutely destroying everything that everybody worked and died. Died for.

Anyway, so he's promising more money. A

But don't worry the experts get it.

Here is Janet Yellen, telling us that, you know, you just don't get it. You don't understand. We're smarter than you. Cut nine.

VOICE: All Americans, both those who are well-off.

And those at the bottom. Of the income distribution. They're better off. Their wages have risen more than prices.

GLENN: Okay. All right. Good is bad. Bad is good.

Up is down, down is up.

And prices are down. And your wages are up. So everybody knows this.

America, can you afford to be led by these people, another four years?

Can You AFFORD Another Four Years of Biden?
RADIO

Can You AFFORD Another Four Years of Biden?

Inflation continues to rise, housing prices are insane, and our government continues to spend, spend, spend! Meanwhile, the American people are hurting. And what is the Biden administration and mainstream media saying? Everything’s fine! And everything that isn’t fine is somehow Trump’s fault…even after 4 years. Glenn wants you to ask yourself one question before the 2024 election: Can you AFFORD another 4 years of this?

GLENN: Record prices now, gold, coffee, copper, cocoa. You look at the news, in our show prep today.

They talk about, well, you know, the fed says they've got this under control. Maybe it looks like they don't. No. You know who the fed looks like doesn't have under control, is the spending under the United States government.

The United States government is printing $1 trillion every 100 days. $1 trillion every 100 days. Just put that in your pipe and smoke it, for a minute. What do you think will happen for inflation. When they're dumping 100 trillion -- I'm sorry. $1 trillion into the economy every 100 days. Of course, we will have inflation!

It's only going to get worse! But, you know, it's so amazing, that we -- we keep looking for answers, from the people who caused the problem.

You know, people still look at the New York Times and go, oh, you know, the New York Times. Well, what are they saying?

What do you mean, what do they say? How does the New York Times have any credibility at this point?

They were, you know, leading the way. They still can't admit the Hunter Biden thing.

They still can't admit it.

How? How? How?

You know, you're -- you're -- you were peddling the nonsense that that was Russian disinformation. And up the even offended by it, when you found out, that that wasn't true.

You weren't even offended. You didn't ask the people who told you, you know, in the Intel industry.

You didn't say, hey, dude, you really led me astray on this one.

How did these people have any credibility?


PAT: The New York Times best-seller list? How about that? How about the -- the Economist just did a story on how conservatives are short-changed by the New York Times best-seller list.

Of course, this is something you've been going through for decades now. We've known about this for a long time.

And it's a much worse problem than the Economist even knows. They say that their analysis found that books published by conservative printing houses are 7 percent less likely to make it on to the New York Times weekly best-seller list. It's a lot worse than that.


GLENN: It's a lot worse than that.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, I said this example earlier. That my last book, which was not The Great Reset. It was Dark Future.

When Dark Future came out, we sold twice the number of books. I think it was Dark Future. It might have been Great Reset. I can't remember.

Twice the number of books, as the author that was given the number one status. And it used to be that they would hold you out of the number one slot.

You know, they might make you two or three, if it was even close. But if it was that different, in the old days. You would still get the number one spot.

Now, I went from double the sales, of the people they put in, at number one. And I made 15th on the list.

PAT: I mean, how did they justify that? That's crazy.

GLENN: Their own algorithms. Their own algorithms.

PAT: Yeah. Don't they wait to certain bookstores more than others?

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: Independent bookstores, but that's not enough to do what happened there.

That's just not enough.

You know, they have their own agenda. And that's fine. I just wish they would be open about it, you know what I mean?

Stop lying to people and saying, that that is -- BookScan is the real number one, number two, number three.

You know what I mean? It just scans the books that are sold. Still however, you know, sold, you know, through the traditional things. For instance, I don't care about this anymore.

And we are doing everything we can, with Mercury Inc. To print and distribute ourselves.

And we still can't get away from a big publishing house, distributing, because it's just -- it's almost a monopoly. At this point.

You just don't have the ability to distribute into bookstores.

And then Amazon, takes 50 percent. I mean, did you do 50 percent of the work, Amazon? Really?

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: I just don't find that reasonable, at all. But they're Amazon. So we're selling, my latest book, Chasing Embers through GlennBeck.com. Which will not go through BookScan. Will not do any of this stuff.

PAT: So it won't be logged by the New York Times.

GLENN: No. It won't be logged by the New York Times or anybody. Because we're not a part of BookScan, so -- and I don't care.

I really don't care. I want to -- I'm tired of putting my money and my effort, and then putting it into institutions, that are trying to kill us.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Do you remember, Pat, when we used to go on tour? Bookstores. And how many hostile bookstores we would walk into, that just found me despicable?

PAT: Yeah. Most of them.

GLENN: But they did it, because they knew they would sell a lot of books. Just tired of it.

Don't have to do it. Don't have to do it.

PAT: It's interesting. Because in this economist article. They say that leading conservative authors like you and Bill O'Reilly.

Are frequently listed on the New York Times best-seller non-fiction list.

But less prominent writers have a more difficult time making the cut.

And like you just explained though. While you're on the list.

You're not where you should be on the list.

It's not accurate. Because they fudge even those numbers.

GLENN: Yeah. So you know. Because you probably think this is a lot of wining about trophies. It's not.

The New York Times. If you get on the top ten New York Times, then your book is automatically put in every airport. It's automatically put in the front of the stores.

Otherwise, it just kind of languishes on a back shelf someplace. So -- and that's what they want. That's why they don't put. You know, that's why, The Great Reset and Dark Future, could not be a top ten best-seller. It had to be 15.

It could not be a top ten. Why?

Because then it would get the exposure that they must want it to have.

So it's not -- by the New York Times doing this, it's not about money. And it's not bragging rights. It is -- it is about exposure and having your book placed in places like airports, where people go in to buy a book. And they're going to go take a flight or take a vacation.

And they will see your book. They will carry ten. The top best-sellers. And if you're not in that, you're not seen. So you don't get discovered.

That's the problem. And nobody is really -- nobody has really articulated that. They make it seem like it's, I don't know, it's petty.

I want to be a top -- top ten, New York Times best-seller list. Because that says something about me. That says nothing about anybody.

Let's see, California's minimum wage, the 20-dollar minimum wage, for fast food workers.

Yeah. Kind of putting people out of business. First of all, McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, hyped prices to offset the higher cost.

Who would have seen that come? I mean, how many times does it take before people understand basic economics?

The price of the goods or service, goes up, when it costs the company, that is providing those goods and services, when it costs more to get that to you. They raise the price.

That's the way business works. Communism, doesn't work that way. Communism, it just -- they just do what they want to do. And price doesn't matter.

And that's why you have crappy stuff. You have crappy distribution.

And supermarkets, that, you know -- I would feel safer, I would feel safer in the streets, in eating the food off the streets in China. Than I would in -- in Venezuela.

In the grocery store.

PAT: It's a really hard decision too, for a lot of small businesses. I have a small business, and when the price of the ingredients goes up, for a while, you just eat that cost. You know, and then eventually, you can't any longer. You can't.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: When butter goes from $70 for the -- in the volume that we buy it in, from $70 to 143, then eventually, that price is going to go up. You know, it's crazy.

GLENN: Jeez. Well, it's the same thing. We talked about this at the Blaze all the time. You know me, Pat. I hate -- because I grew up in radio, which was free. I hate charging for stuff.

I would so gladly go on tour. And not make a dime.

You know, if -- if I didn't have to pay the money. I wouldn't charge people to come in.

And I'm always arguing, can we get the price lower? Can we get the price lower?

Because I remember, and so do you. What it's like, when you are on the edge.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: And I don't want to -- I hope to God, I'm not there, again.

But there's a chance that all of us are there again. And it -- it kills me. It just kills me. And I think that the owners of stores and makers of products, that actually see the end user. Like, I don't think -- Nike doesn't care.

You know what I mean? They don't care. There are companies that actually care, about the end user. And think about them.

We're one of those people. And every time we're -- I mean, we -- we pay above industry standard, in -- at the Blaze. Okay?

We're either competitive, or just above industry standard. Well, you can't live on industry standard now!

But what do you do?

You keep raising it, so everybody. And then not raising the price. And then if you raise the price. Then the customers can't afford it. And it goes away. And the whole thing.

This is what every business is going through right now.

And, you know, I really -- I will be -- I will absolutely be convinced that this is a fraudulent election.

If for the first time, in history, the -- the economy extent play the major role.

Look at -- can America survive another four years? Can you survive another four years, going down this road?

Can you afford it? Just, let's ask that. Can Americans afford another four years.

Because everything is going up. You're not able to buy a house. You're not able to get a loan on anything that is reasonable. And it's only going to get much, much worse.

And I don't know if you saw the jobs report yesterday.

So in the jobs report, the -- the fed chief, Powell came out and said, yeah. These. These jobs reports.

The books are being cooked a bit.

Wait. What?

All of the jobs that have been created, are part-time jobs.

And I shouldn't say all. The vast majority, are part-time jobs. And almost no American citizens are getting the jobs, that are actually being reported as being created.

It's almost all illegal aliens now.

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: I mean, you know, you them, well, it was a pretty good jobs report. Yeah, for illegal aliens.

Can you afford another four years of this?
