Tucker Carlson’s POWERFUL message after leaving Fox News

Just days after his departure from Fox News was announced, Tucker Carlson shared a message with fans on social media. In this clip, Glenn plays the entire, powerful message about never giving up in the stand for truth: ‘As long as you can hear the words,’ Tucker says, ‘there is hope.’ Plus, Glenn and Stu predict what may be next for the former Fox News host…

GLENN: I don't know if you saw Tucker Carlson's little mini monologue that he put online yesterday. Let's play this here.

TUCKER: Good evening. It's Tucker Carlson. One of the first things you realize, when you step out of the noise for a few days, is how many genuinely nice people there are, in this country.

Kind and decent people. People who really care about what's true.

And a bunch of hilarious people, also. A lot of those. It's got to be the majority of the population. Even now. So that's frightening.

The other thing, when you take a little time off, is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are. They're completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years, we won't even remember we had them.

Trust me, as someone who has participated.

And yet, at the same time, and this is the amazing thing.

The undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all. War. Civil liberties. Emerging science. Demographic change. Corporate power. Natural resources.

When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues?

It's been a long time. Debates like that, are not permitted in American media.

Both political parties, and their donors have reached consensus on what benefits them. And they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it.

Suddenly, the United States looks very much like a one-party state.

That's a depressing realization.

But it's not permanent. Our current orthodoxies won't last. They're brain dead. Nobody actually believes them.

Hardly anyone's life is improved by them.

This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won't.

The people in charge know this. That's why they're hysterical and aggressive. They're afraid.

They've given up persuasion. They're resorting to force.

But it won't work. When honest people say what's true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful.

At the same time, the liars, who we've been trying to silence them, shrink. They became weaker.

That's the iron law of the universe, true things prevail.

Where can you still find Americans saying true things?

There aren't many places left, but there are some, and that's enough.

As long as you can hear the words, there is hope.

GLENN: That is a great, hey, I'm not dead. I haven't disappeared, and nobody is shutting me up message from Tucker Carlson. It wouldn't be more effective if he wasn't such a Nazi, right?

STU: Right. That's the only hole in the message. He doesn't sound like a Nazi.

GLENN: You know, he likes freeways.

You know who invented the freeway?

STU: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. It's all coming together, Glenn. It's all coming together. The tone of that is really great.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. It really is.

STU: You see that. That's the happy warrior thing. Right?

Where like, he's not backing down. He's not leaving his foundations or his principles, but he's also smiling and enjoying life a little bit.

GLENN: Well, of course, you know, you pay that. A hundred million dollars and they say, get out, and you're not going to work for it.

STU: Why can't I find that job? I need the job.

GLENN: I want that job. I think everyone should have a chance at those jobs.

STU: Right. A job that pays you multiple millions of dollars to not do that job. That's the job I want. I'm sick of doing the job.

GLENN: Right. I am sick in living in this country, that promises all these great things. Oh, you do it. You can achieve. When we have to work for our money!

I want to work a year, and get paid for four.

STU: Yes!

Now, we're not working hard or doing a real job of course. We should know that.

But still! I want no work, and lots of money.

GLENN: Still.

STU: Where is that job? Low on the work side, high on the money side?

You could argue, we probably already have that job. But I want someone that is even more, low on the work side, and high on the money side.

GLENN: I love that he was in his golf cart with his wife. And they're at his house in Florida. And they're zipping around. And they're like, he looks so happy. Of course. Of course he's happy.

They paid him not to work. And it looks like he can work anyway.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: His family is now set for generations. Well, you -- well, you don't get that deal. I'm here for you. I say we sue all of our companies. So -- wait a minute. This would work in our -- I don't want this.

We need to be able to work a year, and get paid for four. That's -- I mean, if I'm president, that's my slogan.

STU: And it would probably work in this era --

GLENN: Oh, it would.

STU: Let me ask. You know Tucker. I mean, other than me talking to them briefly in my interviews. I've never talked to Tucker in my life.

What kind of person is he? Is he a person that will be happy taking a giant paycheck, and hanging out on the beach?

Or is he the type of person that will want to --

GLENN: No. He's the type of guy.

Like, if I was in his situation. And they said, hey. We're going to pay out your contract. I would say, fine.

But there is -- there is no noncompete. There's nothing.

I get to do what I want. Otherwise, I'm going to work for you because I'm going to honor my contract. I could not go on the beach, and waste four years.

And he's not like that either. You see what he's setting up here. He's setting up a different kind of show.

A show where he takes big issues and debates them. That's where he's headed.

STU: Yeah. I'm looking for something a little more substantial. Which is great. Something you need. I will say, it really connects when he's talking about that thing. Where we have these debates, then 5 years later, we don't even remember they happened.

It's so true. We waste so much time on nonsense.

GLENN: It's really, really crazy.

Because when all the conventional wisdom has always been, oh, online. People want it in three minutes. People want it in three minutes.

Explain Joe Rogan. Explain this podcast. People will listen to this podcast, every day for three hours.

I mean, I don't know how you do it. I have to do it. But then if I had to listen to it too, that would be six hours of my day.

And I just couldn't handle it. No matter what they pay. Because I'm still working for other days.

STU: That's a lot.

GLENN: That's a lot of work.

But really, I don't know how people have the time. But they're looking for longer for longer form intelligent questioning.

STU: And honest questioning. And look, we try to do that every day here. But I do think that as a society, certainly on cable news, you see a lot of this happening, where you just -- even said it, I even participated -- of course, we have as well. Everybody has. But this is something that we can fix.

You know, and I think that's what people want.

GLENN: And it's being fixed.

STU: Yeah. It is.

GLENN: It's sorting itself out.

It's just -- it's those damn commies, that are trying to prop up the old system, that is worthless. They say it's about progress. No, it's not.

They're propping up all the old systems.


How Should Christians FIGHT BACK Against the Rainbow Mafia? | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 188

Sometimes, the only way forward is backward. For instance, the modern obsession with “my personal truth.” The solution to this destructive force, according to author and podcast host Spencer Klavan, lies in ancient wisdom and the timeless question, “How is that working out for you?” Spencer joins Glenn to apply his expertise in classic literature and philosophy to the enigmas and culture wars of today, from the hubris of atheism to the rot of academia. And with a Ph.D. from Oxford, he knows a thing or two about academics. He walks Glenn through how the innovations of science have led to the religion of science, which in turn has bred horrors. He explains why he says, “Transgenderism is transhumanism.” And as a gay man, he responds to the destruction of truth in the name of people like him, including the possibility that Pride Month could be used to paint any dissenters as “Christian nationalists.” Spencer also walks Glenn through the big ideas in his latest book, “How to Save the West: Ancient Wisdom for 5 Modern Crises.” But, despite it all, there’s room for hope, he says. The decay of society may just be a great opportunity to make civilization better.


Glenn EXPLODES at Pro-Debt Republicans, ESG 'Politicization' & MSNBC LIES | Glenn TV | Ep 281

Democrats are behaving like spoiled children, demanding a limitless debt ceiling so they can spend uninhibitedly. On today's Friday Exclusive, Glenn demands that Republicans pick a side on whether they're okay with debt or not, and he reveals who's truly being held hostage as the debt crisis gets worse. Also, has the push for ESG hit its peak? Glenn reacts to the absurd notion that ESG has been "politicized" by conservatives. Lastly, Glenn tries to understand the new ways people can identify as lesbian ...


Video PROVES far-left crime policy is DESTROYING American cities

Recently posted video Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia provides a SHOCKING view of some of America’s most crime-ridden cities. In fact, homelessness, drug abuse, and more have become so out-of-hand, that even the bluest of Americans are taking a stand. In this clip, Glenn plays video of Oakland, California residents standing up to city officials for not doing anything to stop the crimes. Glenn explains that these videos PROVE the far-left’s policy on crime is destroying U.S. cities and that so many Americans are living in fear as a result of it all…


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Let me take you here. Let me show you the horror on the streets of Philadelphia.

Cut five. Now, I lived in Philadelphia, it was always not the best.
But this is --

STU: Less suboptimal.

GLENN: Less suboptimal. These people are zombies. They're just all drugged out. Laying in the streets. Or stooped over.

All in Philadelphia.

Now, let me show you something else. This is in Oakland.

This is people coming and speaking. This happened this week, in Oakland California.

Not exactly a -- a red part of California.

STU: It's not MAGA land.

GLENN: No. It's not MAGA land. So these are the Oakland residents that are coming to Oakland, to demand a change from the city.

Listen to this.

I'm Louise, owner of Studio Naga.

VOICE: I you in your office every week. (inaudible) I email everyone. And you know the situation.

Someone who is mentally deranged, in front of my business, who has threatened me multiple times. Who has threatened other people. Who has defecated on a property on our business. And I'm being told by macro that they can't do anything. I'm being told by police, that there has to be something in the middle.

As they said, I don't want to have to get threatened with sexual violence. I don't want my children to see this, as a normal behavior from an individual on the street. That they get.

He's naked. He's masturbated in front of them. He's urinated in front of them.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

VOICE: And there's nothing I'm told the police can do. So your policy of not enforcing some of this 150 feet from the school, 150 feet from the residences. That policy has a direct effect.

GLENN: Okay?

STU: Jeez.

GLENN: Can you imagine that? Can you imagine that?

Why are you paying taxes? What am I paying taxes for?

Okay. Listen to this. Crime change, cut two. Number seven.

VOICE: I understand. It comes from a place of hurt, generally when people are being violent. At some level, in some form, it's coming from a place of hurt. Sure. But if they're doing hundreds of gun point robberies mostly to women, to people of all races, where I've been in poverty my whole life, it makes it hard for us to keep job, to find jobs, to live life, to fight through mental health issues. To fight through our poverty. And it's not just one Democrat, and women. It's all kinds of women being targeted. This is systemic violence as well.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: So here's what I want to leave you with.

When you start to have conversations. Because all of the data points are there.

Before, when they were like, we'll reimagine the police. We're like, that's not going to work. That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard.


And that obviously, wasn't necessarily the best thing to say. But that's what was out of our mouths. I know it was my mouth at the time.

You are out of your mind?

Now all the data points are there. You show things like this.

And say, so let's talk about defunding the police. And saying, that the homeless, you know, can live anywhere they want. And all of this.

How is that working out for you?

Just ask them that. How is that working out?

Can we just look at -- can we just look at the facts? How is the city doing?

How is crime? How is crime, compared from a red city, to a blue city?

Is there anything we can learn from this? How is it working out?

And just be kind about it. But it's time we talk about facts. This is empirical evidence. This is how science is done.

I don't follow scientists. Because I know scientists can be wrong. I follow actual scientists. And that is, I have a theory.

I will now test it out, and I will look at the facts. So when they say, you just don't even know, you're a racist.

No. I'm following science. Here's how it works. You propose a theory.

I think police are making our cities racist. And they're -- they -- we would be safer, in the minority communities, if there weren't any police.


You said defund, because you want to reimagine.

Now we've done that in several cities. So let's look at those cities. Because if it was working and it was better. I would be with you.

I would change my mind. I don't want to be right.

I want to live in a great country, that treats everybody fairly. That -- that looks at everyone equally. Looks at people who are sick, and says, they're sick.

How can we help them?

I don't want to live in crime. And neither do you.

So how is that working out?

That's science.

STU: We did a show on Stu Does America, called Stu does the collapse of the American city. A couple weeks ago. And highlighted a station called old station subtraction in Phoenix.

Listen to this. This is their everyday. Everyday.

Sixty-nine-year-old owner, who opens a sub shop. It's been around for a while. This is his current situation. There are hundreds of people sleeping within a few blocks of Old Station. Most of them suffering from mental illness or substance abuse, as they lived out their private lives with public view of the restaurant.

They slept on Joe and Debbie's outdoor tables. Defecated on their back porch. Smoked methamphetamine in their parking lot. Washed clothes in their bathroom sink. Pilfered bread and gallon jars of pickles from the delivery trucks. Had sex on their patio. Masturbated within view of their employees. And lit fires for warmth that burned down palm trees and scared around customers.

Within a half mile of the restaurant, the police have been called to an average of eight incidents a day in 2022.

There are at least 1,097 calls for emergency medical help. 573 fights or assaults.

236 incidents of trespassing, 185 fires, 140 thefts, 125 armed robberies, thirteen sexual assaults, and four homicides. The remains of a 20 to 24-week-old fetus, 20 to 24-week-old fetus were burned and left next to a Dumpster in November. Two people were stabbed to death in their tents.

Sixteen others were found dead from overdoses, suicides, hypothermia, or excessive heat.

A group of young men in the encampment have begun selling off pieces of the public sidewalk, charging each person $20 a week for what they called lot rent and security.

That had seemed ridiculous, to an encampment resident, until he decided not to pay and then awoke one night to the smell of someone dowsing his tent with lighter fluid.

Then there was Kesha, barely out of her teens, who skittered around the encampment like a scared cat, wary of everyone. Carrying a few old dolls, and crying sometimes.

Joel had tried to watch out for her, offering her water, for a few minutes inside whenever she was upset.

But one weekend, when he wasn't around, the temperature was 115 degrees. She laid down on the curb near his gallery and died of heat exhaustion. Story after story after story of this.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: This goes back to one of these court rulings where they said, of course it's okay to camp outside. That's okay.

Of course it is. So this has completely devastated. And this is the story of one sandwich shop. But this is repeating itself all over the country.

GLENN: So, you know, here's the thing.

We have to understand, that America is not all -- John Philip Sousa, marching bands, perfect military, and white picket fences. Okay?

We have to understand that. I never thought it was. I thought we were better than we are now.

I never thought it was. We've done some really bad things. I'm willing to admit that. I know at this point, you are too.

Because we've gone through this together. We've actually gone through soul-searching. The vast majority of Americans have changed. The vast majority of Americans on both sides have changed.

Now, we've changed because we've done soul-searching. And we went, yeah. Jeez. We really screwed things up. Boy, you know what. The liberals who were right about the companies, becoming the state, I didn't think that 20 years ago.

And they were right about the FBI. And the -- the spy apparatus in this country. They were right.

Okay. All right. Now, why do I say that?

Not because I'm forced to. But because I'm watching the evidence.

Nobody convinced me of that. The evidence is overwhelming. Now, while that evidence is coming out, and changing hard-core Republicans, hard-core conservatives.

Really pro-police. Pro-military. All of the things, that they've always hated.

As we're changing, because we see the facts. They're changing in spite of the facts.

And embracing the things they rejected. This is not logical.

It's just not logical.

And it's -- it's -- it won't endure.

And the further we get down this path. I'm reallying beginning to understand, the gods of the copybook headings. With terror and slaughter return. Is the last line. Of that Rudyard Kipling poem.

And I'm beginning to understand it. It doesn't just mean war. It doesn't mean, you'll have someone come in, and just right everything. We're experiencing the terror and slaughter right now.

We're experiencing it. How many people in this country, right now are living in fear. That weren't living in fear, ten years ago.

How many people who own a business in a town, live in fear of what the police won't or will do, of what's happening outside of their streets.

Anybody who says they're compassionate, and they heard what Stu just read, that's happening in Arizona. How do you claim compassion here?

How is this compassionate? You are not helping the lowest. You're enriching the rich right now.

You're not even -- you're not helping the millionaires. You're helping the billionaires.

You're empowering them. You're destroying so many lives, that are living on the streets, that are in the worst shape.

And how you are doing that?

By disregarding every known principle. There's a difference between facts. Facts can change.

Principles don't change. There's something that man has found to be true, over thousands of years.


The 1 REASON why the Russia & Ukraine War hasn’t become WW3

Is Vladimir Putin’s restraint the ONLY reason why the Russia & Ukraine War hasn’t yet evolved into World War 3? Because if the situation was different — as Glenn plays out in this clip — there’s a high probability the United States would currently be fighting a world war. So, with such high chances of escalation, why are yesterday’s anti-war Democrats suddenly fully on board? Glenn explains it all in this clip, adding that though Russia’s invasion was ‘abhorrent,’ it’s clear many in Washington are choosing to take advantage of the situation rather than make the right decisions for the U.S.’ overall safety and security…
