What you're about to hear is the fusion of entertainment and. Holy cow, was last night bad, you know, bad for the bad for the Democrats? Forty eight percent ratings decline year after year over a year or convention after convention. Forty eight percent fewer decline. Nobody's watching this thing. It's unwatchable. We're going to talk to Donald Trump Jr. today and find out what is it that they're learning from this because the Republican convention is right around the corner.
So how is that going to go? What are they learning? What you know what what what are they not going to do that the Democrats have just done? Also, Christian Walker, Herschel Walker's son, he's coming back home to Dallas, very excited to start his first year at UCLA. I mean, he's coming back because he's outspoken as a conservative.
I want to talk to him and so much more all on today's broadcast. We begin in one minute.
This is the Glenn Beck program. Oh, all right.
Before we get started, let me tell you about my pillow.
Did you see did you see Mike Lyndell on Anderson Cooper? Yeah, I don't I don't get that.
I don't get why everyone feels like they need to scream at the mike pillow guy. And I understand the instinct and I understand why the guy are trying to help.
He's a big Trump supporter, but still he's a big religious guy. That's why I think.
Yes, I just don't I don't I don't get I don't get why that's a good reason. Yeah.
Anderson took him on and just shouted at him for 20 minutes. I mean, it was it was remarkable.
We should get we should get Mike on to talk about his side of the story because Anderson was just screaming nonsense. I know the story about what happened in in Minnesota that Anderson says you have no credibility.
Look what happened to you in Minnesota. I know the story. It is. Absolutely, because he's a Trump supporter.
We'll we'll get into that later anyway. If you just like to support a company that supports your values and you want a great product, I mean, there's no don't ever support somebody that's just they're not making a good product, but they agree with you.

You know, I it is amazing to me the way the Democrats are positioning themselves while at the same time standing against all of those things, they say, therefore, let me give you one example here.
The Democratic National Convention moderator did led the Pledge of Allegiance, and there was a discussion on Tuesday.
Now, during the Muslim delegates assembly, the video that live streamed this event showed that AJ Dirani led the pledge but left something out. Listen to the Pledge of Allegiance Tuesday Democratic Convention. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. And notice anything missing.
Hmm. Now, this is the same group that denied God three times in twenty sixteen. It's crazy. It's crazy.
And yet they tried to position themselves as mainstream. Last night they were talking about taking guns away from people and how we need gun legislation. Are you crazy? Guns have gone up through the roof, this is the month after month, it is record breaking sales of guns.
I know people who never wanted to have a gun that are buying a gun now. Why? Because the Democrats who want to take your guns are also the ones backing Antifa and the riots that are happening in the streets. They're trying to defund the police. How are they going to thread this needle, how is this going to work? The only way it works is if Americans are just living in self-imposed ignorance.
And I think that's a possibility because why is it we're not rising up and saying we're going back to work, period, all of us, we're going back to work? How is it we're looking at the end of New York City in this nation? How is it this is happening, all of those hot dog stands, those vendors, all of those people have that have lost their jobs now everything that is closed now in New York City, why aren't we standing up?
I'll tell you why. Because I think we have cakes and circuses going on with Amazon Prime, with with Netflix, with all of the movies that we could just sit at home and just watch. We're just entertaining ourselves.
We better wake up last night in an incredible moment, Obama said Biden and Harris believe no public official should use their office to enrich themselves.
Hold on, just say Art did didn't Barack didn't you enter office with nothing you kept telling us about how you still had student loans and you just bought a twelve million dollar home in Nantucket. How did that happen if you weren't using your office to enrich yourself? How did that happen?
Martha's Vineyard, Glenn. But Martha, he brought it in. Oh, yes.
Not sorry. Sorry. Tocchet, not Nantucket. Yeah. Nantucket is probably too conservative for him there.
A billion dollar brand right now. And if you want to, you want to talk about people enriching themselves. I mean, don't even get me started on Joe Biden. We'll get into that in a second. Don't get me started on the Obamas being a billion dollar brand. Don't get me started on the Clintons.
How about Bill de Blasio? Have you heard the latest on Bill de Blasio? His wife is now having to defend what is is being called is being told, we're being told, is one point one million dollars in salary for her staff.
But the records show it's probably closer to two million dollars for 14 people on her staff. Meanwhile, he's cutting basic services. He's cutting all kinds of people salary, but he's defending her million dollar staff, saying, well, you don't know what she does for the city.
Well, I'd like to know what she does for the city. What does she do for the city and why is she doing it?
So this kind of is this is this a socialist, again, enriching themselves and, you know, that sort of thing does not happen, Glenn.
Yeah, OK. Only in all circumstances. Thank you. Let me go to somebody who we have to speak gently to. Don't make any sudden moves. I think he has PTSD. Jason Botterill is with us now, our chief researcher. And, Jason, it was his turn to watch the DNC convention last night. Could you send me back to a war zone, please, and do that again?
Oh, my gosh.
You know, I don't the GOP has really got to figure this out because what was what happened last night does not work. I mean, they spent an entire hour just depressing everyone. That's all it was.
Gun control. Guns are killing the entire planet. Then they shifted into the climate crisis. The climate crisis is destroying the entire planet.
And to cap it all off, Billy Elliot shows up as the little music video. And I thought that was just a perk. Everyone up. She looked like she was there to appeal to the IMO electorate.
She looked like her mom to a haunted house. She really she really she looks so spooky again. I mean, if you know who Billy Eilish is, you might like her. You like her music, whatever. But she's not exactly a pick me up, you know what I mean? No. And she looks so damn spooky all the time and depressed. She's not the person to bring the electricity into the auditorium, you know what I mean?
Not they didn't. It didn't. It didn't it didn't look good last night. It just didn't look good.
It looked like a giant infomercial. And I kept waiting for Phil Swift to come in through the door and saw a boat in half and sell us some flexible. I mean, that was the vibe.
Or can I tell you something? It would be funny if Donald Trump did something like that, if he had the Flex SEAL guy on it. Just say, let me recap.
Let me recap.
The DNC, Hillary Clinton was the first, I guess, big name really to step up. And I didn't even really know she was going to show up, but I think she was added later.
But I mean, the only really the first off, her speechwriter really dropped the ball and she had like five minutes to get everything out. And really the only thing significant she said was you could tell that she was still very, very bitter about the election. One thing that she said, what she said, don't forget, Joe and Kamala can win by three million more votes and still lose. Take it for me. She's still going after the Electoral College.
They're still going after Russia.
There's that deal. They're still accusing him of collusion with Russia.
That was you follow that comment up with she said, vote for a president that we choose, not chosen by a foreign adversary. I mean, I just about turn the camera. I turn the video off right there. You got to be kidding me.
Got to be kidding me.
Pelosi was after Clinton. She didn't really say anything. Warren spoke and again, sticking with not really saying much, but something to tease for next week, she was in a classroom and behind her was something kind of interesting.
It looked like she was like in a preschool kindergarten classroom behind her.
Just over her left shoulder was a BLM letters in an elementary classroom. Now, I thought that I mean, at first I like maybe that's product placement, but no, that's by design.
And next week when I show you why.
Yeah, next week, we have a special on Wednesday that every American needs to watch. If you have kids in school or you have grandkids in school, you need to watch this special.
It is the hostile takeover of our schools. Not even it's not even hostile. It was a hand over. BLM now is controlling a lot of the messaging in schools and we're going to go over some of it today. If I have time, I want to go over some of the things that they're now saying in school that if you knew what was happening, you'd you'd flip your wig.
You must be involved in your child's education right now and you must be involved in a local dialogue and the local school board.
You have to our kids have no chance of escape.
If we don't stop this right now, it's it's a little overwhelming.
Yesterday, Jason, you were here. You were not the researcher for last night's TV show.
That was Nathan. But you were here while we did it and watched it. It is overwhelming on how well planned this is.
Yeah, I was I was just dying to show you something. You got busy with something else, but I was with you. So this is one of those shows, like you said, that you have to watch. And this is one of those shows where we have smuggled documents. So all of this is happening. And schools all over the country, one of the one of the smuggled documents that was just about to show you yesterday was a pamphlet on how to paint the Black Panther Party in a good light, how to point out the things that they stood for in a good light.
I'm talking violence as violence ever justified.
And this is what they're teaching elementary school kids, elementary school kids.
Is violence justified where the Black Panthers justified also Marxism. But they do it again. They're talking to eight year olds. They're saying, hey, you know, what is this about? You know, getting money from people that have abundance and filtering it down to people that don't have as much, you know, what system does that sound like to you?
They're slowly trying to teach Marxism to children. Glenn, this is so bad.
I've set up because my my son right now is in high school. He's just starting online school. I wish I could turn the camera and show you. I've set up him a little kiddie desk right next to mine. I am going to monitor every single thing they say because guess what? Even if the school board is not involved, we've got smuggled documents that BLM is actually saying, OK, that's OK.
If they don't if your board doesn't approve it, this is how you sneak it in any way.
I kid you, not this. You have to monitor everything.
The documents that we have received, we we have tried over and over and over again to get this teacher to come on the program. She or he, we don't even know will not come on the program, will not won't do anything like I did my job.
I got the documents out. That's it.
They are terrified, terrified of what is going on and how the control of our our schools is now in the hands of of overlord's warlords and unions. And they will break bones.
I mean, we are in the last phase of of everything we talked about, of everything we talked about. Jason, thank you very much. We'll talk again. And thanks.
I owe you combat pay, I think, for for that last night watching the watching the DNC convention. All right. Coming up in just a second, we have Herschel Walker, son, who is amazing.
He's so articulate on Black Lives Matter and everything else. We're going to get his view on what happened at the convention and also what's happening in his life. It's pretty amazing. Was going out to UCLA. He's coming back home now.
Apparently, you don't really want to speak out if you're if you're conservative in Los Angeles.
All right. Rally Factor is our sponsor, Paul. He's 63 years old. He lives in Minnesota. One of his favorite pastimes is playing softball. But in recent years, he began developing pain in his knees. Just got worse and worse and worse over time. Eventually, and not that long ago, Paul was forced to conclude that his days of enjoying softball were nearing an end. It just wasn't worth the pain anymore. But a few months ago, Paul heard me talking about relief factor.
He's the guy in Minnesota that listens. He decided to give it a try. And what do you know? Within a few weeks, the pain in his knees had begun to recede. These days, he is back playing softball. He got his life back and you can, too. This is not a drug. It was developed by doctors and 70 percent of the people who go on to try it order more after the trial period because it works.
Now, if it doesn't work for you in the first three weeks, stop taking it.
But in three weeks, four weeks, it really starts to show a difference. Some people, it happens right away, others it takes a while. But 70 percent of the people who try it find the relief they're looking for relief. Dr. Dotcom, that's a relief factor. Dotcom, call them at eight hundred five hundred eighty three. Eighty four. Eight hundred five hundred eighty three. Eighty four. It's a relief factor. Dotcom, ten second station.
You know, I want to I want to thank you so much for listening. A friend of mine was talking to me yesterday and said their father in law, who watches mainstream media all the time and is a conservative, was watching the Wednesday night special and was almost lost by it a couple of weeks ago and said, wait, wait, wait. That can't be that can't be true. How come I haven't heard about any of this stuff? It's because we're way ahead and the media both left and right in the mainstream, they are not covering the stories that matter.
They're not telling you the truth on what's going on. And they're doing no digging past the surface. It's all about the arguing of the left and the right. So you are way ahead in the news. And I urge you not to miss a single episode of this program. These are the days that we talked about and I predicted coming for so long. This is it, gang. Yeah. This show kind of makes the world a little more of a boring place because there's no surprises.
You know, we've talked about all of this stuff when when when another pandemic, I guess, is is a big surprise, at least how hard it's hit. But how many times have we talked about, you know, a catalyst event that would set off a string of events? And, you know, you have the chalkboard that's been sitting up here since the beginning. I mean, we have we had all of our candidates up on the board on this big chalkboard.
And over in the little corner, we left up these four points that Glenn put up. So it had to be, what, last year? Yeah, at least a year. Yeah. And these points, I mean, at the time seemed mostly completely out of the blue. But we are in the middle of all of them right now. Yeah. This is, this was I took 10 points that I feel were downloaded to me about a year and a half ago, and I tried to boil them down to something digestible.
And so I came up with these four points and I put them up and they did seem like they were a long way away and like they wouldn't happen. And the first one was polarization and civil unrest. And I said the critical stage will come the time we need to really we'll know we're in deep trouble is when we have 1930's, you know, European levels of riots in the streets with antifa and communist and Islamist, when they start really going.
That's the critical stage where, point number one, civil unrest and polarization. You can count that as destabilizing the country. The next one was economic destabilization. The stock market plunge. It has it happened. Price collapse. It's about two bank and central bank failures and business failures that seemed like craziness. Yeah, but economic destabilization is absolutely obviously here. I mean, everyone would acknowledge that tech disruption, communications, privacy, they would the critical stage, they'd be censoring everything.
And the last one was trust implosion. No trust in government, media, tech, finance, justice. Eady, you were there. The last thing is the new world order. And we now know what that is. More in a minute. This is the Glenn Beck program. All right, let me tell you about our sponsor. We want to thank Ralph Greens for being here for us. Giving your dog the healthiest, happiest life that you can give him isn't just a nice thing to do.
It's your responsibility as a pet owner. And if you don't look at your pet as a pet, but a member of a family, you want to do that.
Our dog is part of the family. I was looking at him the other day and I was like, oh, jeez, is getting old now. He's only like eight. But still I have like four years left with him and I just love him so much. So it doesn't come as a surprise. You know what you eat, you become while they're eating a lot of crap in their food, a lot of fillers and everything else, and nothing is alive in it.
There's no there's no probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, omega oils, the things that your your dog needs every single day.
So there's a supplement. It's called rough grains. I've given it to now for about six months. It's the best he has. He gobbles his food. He loves mealtime, and he has changed, you know, all the good ways. Go to rough greens, dotcom back. Are you for Greens Dotcom back and subscribe to Blaze TV ablaze TV.com. Glenn, use the promo code, Glenn, and save ten bucks.
This is the Glenn Beck program. Welcome, glad you're here. Last week I had Herschel Walker on sports legend, and I'm not a sports fan.
And I I've I'm rarely as blown away by somebody as I was by Herschel Walker. He is one of the most fascinating guys, has overcome so much and has such a great attitude and really understands the essence of America. Love this guy. Last night, I was sitting out in the back porch with the guy who has been working on the sprinklers in our in our yard. And Hershel is a neighbor of mine. And we were talking about Herschel because he said, I watched your your special last week, your podcast with Herschel Walker.
He said I worked in his yard and put his sprinklers in.
You know, years ago. He said, like a year ago, I'm sitting at some coffee shop and this guy slaps me on the back and sits down, is like, Hey, Brian, how are you doing? And he said, it's Herschel Walker. He's like, I don't even know how he remembered me.
He said, he is the most normal human being I've ever met.
And I said, I feel the same way. He's just a really great guy, his son. We're going to do something that I've never done before. We had the father on the last podcast tonight on Blaze TV.
You'll get it a couple of days earlier if you're a subscriber. I want to talk to his son, Christian Walker, who is now a political commentator. He didn't plan on becoming one.
He just decided that because he was going to school at UCLA, he couldn't take it anymore and he had to start speaking out.
Not sure he knows what's in store for him, but I'm guessing he has seen a little bit of it so far because he's a very effective speaker. He when he talks about what's happening on the front lines with black America and the lies of Black Lives Matter, he is rock solid, just rock solid.
He's with us now. Christian, are you there? Hi, Mr. Glenn.
How are you? Very good. Very good. I think that's what your dad called me to do, opposite of O'Reilly, Beck and Mr. Glenn. So, Christian, you're out in you're out in L.A. and you were going to go to UCLA and now you're talking about coming home.
Why? So I started speaking out about a month ago when the riots started, I was on the roof of my building in L.A. and I was overlooking the city. We had eight helicopters in the air. There were 12 police cars on fire. And all anyone had to say about it was, let me go to Black Square on Instagram. There was no truth. It was just deception. And so it's been really heartbreaking being in this city that I love so much.
So I am thinking about coming home.
Are you getting much of the push? Are you getting much pushback? Because I've seen a couple of your videos. Let me in fact, I have a 30 second clip here of you're not a racist video. Listen to this.
You're not a racist. You're not you're not a racist. When you say you don't see color. This idea that if we run around all day talking about celebrating people's color, racism will go away is deranged. Stop talking about it. As long as BLM is running around terrorizing white people for things they didn't even do, racism ain't going away. It's going up. Stop allowing blue haired white liberals with mental health problems tell you who you are. You know you're not a racist.
Stop accepting it. You're not a white supremacist. When you call the cops on someone who looks threatening and you feel threatened, call the cops.
You're let another video out that just talked about the stats and you combatted Black Lives Matter. And it was really powerful.
But what is the reaction you're getting from people out in in L.A.? Well, what I've noticed is people don't want to hear truth, they want to believe whatever lie they're choosing to believe, they want to believe that police are killing black people at such a high rate when it's simply not the truth. The main issues affecting black America are father absents are black on black crime, but they don't want to hear the statistic. So that's what I hear a lot.
It's just a lot of cuss words. It's a lot of smearing. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So what are your what are your peers saying?
I mean, what have they just bought into this and there is no way or is there any light at the end of the tunnel that people are waking up to this?
Well, I've noticed there's such a young conservative base and there's such a young conservative group on social media that just feels stifled because politics and pop culture have merged together. So everyone feels forced into posting a Black Lives Matter Square, forced into posting a Black Lives Matter petition.
So they need a strong voice. They need young voices that are willing to take some of the heat. So I'm glad I kind of get to lead that movement. And I've noticed a lot of people are starting to speak up now after I have.
So tell me what you thought about the DNC and, you know, what are the highlights or the lowlights this week?
And do you know anybody who's even watching it? I just know a bunch of conservatives who are watching to get nervous about what happens if our great president doesn't get reelected. Right.
But some of the highlights last night when they were talking about climate change but refused to address Antifa and Black Lives Matter, going around lighting federal buildings on fire, I'm sure that's not good for the climate or this praise for Comilla, being a black woman, being a woman, being all these different things.
And this is what the left does. They uplift minorities. And then any time you go to criticize them, they say you can't criticize them. You're being misogynistic, you can't criticize them. You're being a racist. No, equality means we can all criticize each other equally. We don't like Carmela's policies. That's why we're criticizing her.
And then Michelle Obama, how do you feel about Michelle Obama? Because a lot of people feel the same way about Michelle Obama as they do about Comilla. That that I don't know. I can relate to her. She seems nice, you know, how do you how do you relate to her?
Well, I read a quote yesterday by Thomas Sowell, he's a really famous black economist, but of course, black America doesn't know about them because they uplift drug dealing rappers instead of people who are educated. But he said something like, the Obamas are really great. If you don't know anything about policy, if you know about policy, if you know about what they've done, then you see all the lies. So when Michelle Obama talks, after knowing what they did during their presidency about how they the policies that they implemented, the neoliberal policies that destroyed middle America, it's just it's offensive to be lectured by someone like her.
You know, I've been saying, Christian, this week that I think this shows what the DNC actually how they actually view the voter that is out and, you know, the rest of America because they're saying things and doing things that they're standing against with their policies.
They're saying, you know, you know, we're for law and order, yada, yada, yadda. No, no, no, no. You can't be for antifa and and and cutting the police force and BLM and BLM and be for law and order. They say that they're for, you know, a restoration of America's constitution and our and our rights and our principles. That's the exact opposite. It's almost as if they just think the people who are voting and they may be right.
The people that are going to vote for a Democrat who are watching this thing are so stupid that they have never heard what's actually happening in Washington. And that might be true. What's your take? Well, I think Democrats genuinely think American citizens are stupid, if you look around the country, who has the most dangerous cities, it's Democrat cities. I said last night they're really not a pro-American party. They're an anti Trump party. Anything to take Trump out of office, anything to undermine his presidency.
I mean, another highlight from last night was Elizabeth Warren talking in the kindergarten classroom. And you look behind her and there's kindergarten blocks that say, blam. Yeah, no, that's that doesn't equal law and order. BLM has been running around burning buildings down and beating up American citizens. That's not. But the media is so against us that people really believe everyone just a peaceful protest. It's not the truth.
I you know, I don't know if you really remember the Tea Party. It was happening when you were pretty young, but I was I was part of that movement and I saw millions of Americans total grassroots. And we were snubbed and called names every every time, every day. Everything we did was radical, destructive, anti-American, yada, yada. And we were just trying to get the Constitution to rule supreme again. That's all we wanted. What's amazing to me is in three weeks of BLM, all of a sudden the NBA is is repainting the floors.
The NFL is completely bowing down. I've never seen any grassroots movement. Have that kind of control and now in our schools, it's it's clearly a business, it's clearly not grassroots. Well, one thing I like to always point out to everyone is the Democrat are the Democrats are the party of moms. One of the most famous ones was the KKK.
Hate to say it. BLM is just the KKK in blackface. It's the new KKK. They go around destroying things. They destroy people's businesses. They put Americans lives at risk. They kill police officers. This is a radical domestic terrorist organization. So to have sports teams and companies kneel down and worship this org as if they are doing something great for black America or doing something great for the country is offensive. And it's almost treasonous.
I would say you're your dad is remarkable.
Absolutely remarkable. How much of a role did he play in your life and and who you've become?
It's been always really nice to have a role model and be able to look up to them and look up to his accomplishments. Luckily, he really never pressured me into anything. He let me kind of become myself. He let me do my own research on things. So that's been another cool aspect. But it's always nice to have someone to lean on. Yeah.
Christine, we'll talk to you later and you'll be doing the podcast with me tonight. Bleys subscribers will be able to see the podcast tonight, and it will be available wherever you get your podcast on Saturday. Christian Walker, thank you so much.
God bless such a smart and nice kid. It's funny, though, how when you talk to 20 somethings, they're discovering things like this guy, Thomas Solo. I mean, it's amazing. It is that people do actually understand who people like Thomas are.
Thomas, so enough people know.
Yet Thomas Soul is becoming an underground cult hero, I think, with the teens and early 20 somethings. I mean, I hear so many young people talking about Thomas soul.
It's not only so good, he's so good at communicating these concepts. That should be obvious to everybody but aren't. Yeah.
All right. Let me tell you about our sponsor this half hour. We are so pleased to have Shamone. Yes, the Shamone.
It's a fancy, fancy name and put it back in twenty sixteen. Uh oh gosh. Don't bring Hillary into this. Well no. I mean that would be a good idea, but it would be good for Hillary. Would be good for Hillary Clinton. I think Sharmini should send some genuine sell to Hillary. I think she should soak in a tub. Sharmini, it's a good idea. Yeah. Yeah. So if you've been going through twenty twenty, we're seeing some signs of a rough year.
Maybe the bags under the eyes have gotten a little puffy. Or maybe you're complaining about losing the 2016 election over and over and over and over again.

We're glad you're here. I don't know what I was thinking about the podcast. I think he might be scheduled for a podcast later. And I just I just kept thinking that he was doing the podcast with us today. He's actually not. We have James Lindsay doing the podcast. He's got an unbelievable book that he wrote with Helen Ducros, cynical theories. It's look at critical theories, how activist scholarship made everything about race, gender and identity and why this harms everybody.
These guys are so brave.
Yeah. And they've been punished for it already. Oh, significantly, yeah.
If you don't remember them, by the way, they're the people who they placed a bunch of fake studies in real academic journals that were just a bunch of nonsense based on like overly woak theories.
And they're not conservatives, by the way.
They're not at all. Not at all. That's not what they do. They just just are saying, look, we're going down a road here. That is not right. You academic journals are just approving nonsense and acting as if it's science.
And so they went in there and they said, OK, you know, the one I remember off the top of my head was that they basically reworked Mein Kampf from Adolf Hitler and just changed some names and some some references and submitted it to an academic journal.
Like this is brilliant. Yeah. It's like, you know, because you can if you're saying the right groups are horrible, like Jews to white man or something like that, then then it's OK.
It's approved. And they got a bunch of them. It was like more than half of the ones they submitted actually got approved. And it was all nonsense.
Some of it was like, you know, just random words in a rape at dog parks. Yeah, but your dog is raping another dog in a dog park. I mean, these guys were it was brilliant.
It was brilliant because they were so absurd and it worked too well because it worked so well that everybody in the academic community got pissed off at them. Yep. They said you're exposing something that you shouldn't have exposed. Well, they're doing it again. Critical theories, they say cynical theories. It's the name of the book and they are the podcast tonight at well, whenever we release it, soon as we're done, we'll post it on Blaze Dotcom, Blaze, TV.com, Beck, become a member.

What you're about to hear is the fusion of entertainment. Programs. So there is something happening again, I think with the GOP where these young people that have no political experience are speaking a different language and they are cutting through. What does the GOP need to learn from the latest round of elections, especially those in Florida? We have Anna Pollina, Aluna, somebody that we introduce you to on this program several months ago, thought she was really great. Well, she just won her primary.
She's going up against Charlie Crist. We re introduce you to her in 60 seconds.
This is the Glenn Beck program. So whether your kids are going back to school in person or, God forbid, continuing to attend school from home, they're apt to be bringing all sorts of delightful new devices into your home as if there's not enough already sucking the soul out of your child.
Unfortunately, there's not a lot you can do. You can't get rid of these things. But the new devices like smartphones and tablets and laptops can mean risks to your family's privacy. Your personal information or theirs can be exposed. And mere password protection doesn't block cyber criminals from hacking into those devices when they are on Wi-Fi. Obviously, you want to keep the prying eyes out, especially when it comes to your kids and their safety.
Believe me, believe me, no matter how much security you think you have, it's not enough. Believe me, with Norton 360, you are getting real time protection from existing and emerging cyber threats as well as a VPN with bank grade encryption and a password manager Nordon has you covered. Nobody can prevent all cybercrime, but Norton is committed to making the back to school time easier and safer for your family. Get a special offer now. In September 6th, go to Norton Dotcom back and you'll get 60 percent off Norton 360.
That's Norton dot com slash back on a Paulina LIUNA congressional candidate. She has won her Republican House primary.
Now she is going to face Charlie Crist and we welcome Ana Paulina to the program.
How are you? Good, thank you so much. I remember when I saw you in Texas a few months back, you said, I think, you know, find out and here I am.
Yeah, that is. That is so great. That is so great. You tell tell the audience, refresh the audience's memory. If if they may not remember you and they're not in Florida. Tell us who you are.
My name is Ana Paulina Luna. I'm a United States Air Force veteran. I am a conservative before I'm a Republican. I'm pro-life, Kogod Pro-gun and I'm anti socialist. And I'm taking on Charlie Crist this November.
And it's very good. I gather you've said that a few times.
So why do you think you can beat Charlie Crist?
What what is it that you have that the former governor of Florida doesn't?
So I can tell you that what I find and, you know, mind you, I'm not I haven't done this before, but what I find is that the most effective way to really gain people's trust and to really want them to vote for you is going to tell them the truth, but also to be humble. And what I'm doing and how I'm running my campaign. I did kind of take some notes from President Trump in the sense that I do use social media very heavily, especially during the initial locked out of covid.
But also, in addition to that, I am doing everything that I can to make myself a grassroots candidate and accessible. So where people think you can just go in and biase, you can't do that anymore. I worked everything single of my competition through the primary and I will say that it was tough. I was going to do what I was going to the people I was hosting protests and rallies against socialism and it worked. And so that's the fighting spirit that I bring to the table.
For those who might not know, Charlie Crist is and has been in office for 33 years. So he's been in office for longer than I've been alive. He started out as a Republican and then he became an independent and now he's a Democrat. But we did hear that he tried to come back as a Republican, you know, before the 2012 election cycle and the party was having it. So I will say that, you know, I might not be a perfect person, but I bring a fighting spirit and I'm a hard worker and I'm going to protect the American dream and I will be taking him out of office.
Well, getting back to what is the difference policy wise between you and Crist, everything, you could not be more different. I mean, I am pro-gun. He is not. He is. He says that he fights for a black black rights and black lives. Yet he's the first person to embrace Planned Parenthood. And we all know that. Planned Parenthood, the most aborted demographic, would be black children, and so I will say that, you know, everything that he stands for, if he decides to change his mind in the moment, it's polar opposite of me.
And he has, in fact, changed his position on everything. You can imagine, as I'm sure you know, he has changed every single party.
Well, he says that the extreme right wing has hijacked the GOP.
Would that be you or I saw you broke up there.
He said the extreme right wing has hijacked the GOP.
Yeah, I find that very ironic that he says that because I don't know if you know this, but Charlie actually did ask Donald Trump to host a fundraiser for him when he was a Republican. And to say that to the extreme right wing, you mean I support defend the Constitution. I mean, at least I have a backbone. This guy sitting here telling his voters what he wants to hear but or what they want to hear. But he does need to go out into the district.
So I can tell you that I'm every single day out in the community and I'm seeing that it's not just young people, but it's minorities. It's older people that can no longer aligned with the identity. And what has become the New Democrat Party, they are realizing that it's so progressive, so far left, and I would even say a Marxist, that they are now saying that, hey, we're going to be supporting the president. We will be voting for a conservative candidate.
And I will say I'm attracting independents because I've now raised blood. And this is what's incredible. I've been able to raise over one point one million dollars on dollar donations for people, not corporate interests from Washington, D.C. And I'm going to continue to stay true to that because I want to only represent the people, my community and the American people know the group's interests aside from that.
So you raise one point one million dollars a dollar at a time. No, no. On small, small dollar donations.
OK, OK. Yes. Meaning that my average donation is twenty dollars. That is quite remarkable, so something is happening that I think the GOP needs to pay attention to because I don't think they didn't change in the Tea Party, I don't think they they've changed with Donald Trump. They're just many of them are just tolerating Donald Trump. I think the GOP establishment doesn't really like their voters.
They don't they don't like those people that live out there, you know, out there in the dark lands of the country. But there is something happening with the nonestablishment candidates, especially those who are winning primaries in your state.
What's happening in Florida? And is there a trend or a message that the GOP really needs to wake up to?
And is is this something that we're going to see grow in November?
Absolutely. But you're finding not just in Florida but across the nation is that they are candidates getting elected that are not part of the Washington, D.C. establishment. And I think that that's exactly what this country needs, because the problem that's been in existence for so long, I think, on both sides is that you have people that don't leave their circles of being elitists. They forget who they serve and they look at being an elected representative as it's a job.
It was never anticipated by our founding fathers to be a full time position. It was never supposed to be an elitist position. It was to be that you were elected by your people to go represent their vote in Washington, D.C. and then you came home and you continued your work. And what's happened now is that idea has been really perverted. So to see this happening, not just here in Florida and in certain areas that I believe that will go back to red.
But we're seeing it in areas that we never expected before, even like California with Mike Garcia, he's a prime example of someone who is not part of the D.C. establishment. And he came in and he crushed it. Guess what? He's going to do some incredible things. And so I'm very happy to be a part of this. It's not just myself. There's so many others like myself, like Madison Cawthorn, Alysha Andrews, Tameka Hamilton, I mean, so many people across the nation that are really crushing it.
But I can tell you one thing, it's not going to be easy and I'm going to need all the help that I can get, because when you go out there and you're maverick like that, you become a target. And I do believe in fighting for this country. I'm a patriot. I'm not a politician.
And I will be flipping to see you. By the way, if you would like to find out more or help, vote on Pauliina dotcom, a vote on apolinar dot com.
So, Ana Pollina, what is the message that the GOP needs to hear to win?
What is I mean, there is a, you know, poll after poll is showing that the Democrats are going to win. I don't I just can't imagine the America that I have always known and loved is going to go with a party that is there supporting BLM, won't call out the riots for what they are. I mean, protests or protests, those are protected. These are riots.
And these are really, really bad Marxists that they are dismissing.
What is the message the GOP needs to push forward to be able to win?
The GOP needs to win by pushing forward that everyone it doesn't matter where you're at, but you need to be taking a stand right now. People want strong leaders that even in the face of adversity, will sit there and they'll tell you the truth, even if they're not the only one saying it. And I can tell you that in everything that I've done, if I would have gone by saying I'm bending the need tomorrow, I wouldn't be here today.
So the GOP needs to make sure that every single one of us is lockstep in standing for the Constitution, standing up against this radical behavior, the mob rule that's really taking effect, but also to ensuring that we are using the truth and we weaponized the truth. Right now. I can tell you that when I even debate people, the biggest takedown that I get is when I'm putting the cold, hard facts out there. Incorporate your stories on who you are.
So don't be afraid of telling them exactly what they need to hear. Sometimes if you're the only one saying it and I mean, it's not easy. Again, get glad I've never done this before, but I can tell you that I'm not giving up. I believe in fighting for this country. And I think that regardless of what the media saying, I could tell you what I'm seeing every single day when I got the community in places where they said that or that people would not be voting for Republicans, people would not be voting for President Trump.
And you know what? I'm getting a great response. And I believe in that. Some continue to fight.
Anna Pollina Luna, a congressional candidate in in Florida. Studies show that the best guys that get in to Congress at first are military because they are willing to fight as the time goes on, they become more and more big government because they've they've been born, you know, and really kind of raised in the military.
So they see government as a solution. And you become more and more like John McCain, who I think was a hero. But he I think he lost his way towards the Constitution at the end.
How do you how do you view that? And what would make you stay close to the founding idea of small government?
I've actually you know, I do seem to share your perspective on that one. I've met a few great veterans, but I've also met veterans in Congress that use that card that I've been very disappointed in. And I can tell you that what what I'm finding is that a lot of people end up pivoting and changing and becoming these big government, you know, you know, pro I pro taxes, what I call them because of the fact that they're really controlled by the lobbyists and they're controlled by the special interest groups.
And so I've been fortunate enough to amass this profile on social media to where I am able to fundraise and stay clean from that. But really, I do believe that, you know, that amount of money coming in, it can be a problem. And ultimately, some of these people, it's easy to just go up to Washington, D.C. and take money from the special interests. It's not easy to go out and say, I'm not going to do that either.
Do it from the people and I hope to be that person. And that's what I'm doing so far. And I'm sticking with that plan. And I will say this, you know, Glenn, you know, the longer that you're there, the more difficult it becomes. So I don't want to be in office for that long. I think that we need term limits. And I try to do my part right now. But I do look forward to the day where I can retire and throw myself on in the ocean or off the ocean.
But what you really sound genuine. I know several people in Congress who say this is the worst thing they've ever had to do in their life, and they despise it because it's so it's just riddled with infection on both sides.
Are you prepared for, you know, losing, losing everything that you kind of thought you you knew about the good things about Washington and and really look at it and not become the abyss as you stare into it?
Yes, I am. And I still want to have a really strong faith in God, but also to I mean, I'm not doing this because it's, you know, my end of the plan. I actually sacrificed a lot to do that, to include, you know, when you go into this arena and you start by that, you realize that you're going to come under some serious attack. And I will say the reason I'm doing it is because I genuinely feel that it needs to be done.
I feel that if we don't take a stand now, that we all leave this country. And so for me, it's not because I necessarily and, you know, chomping at the bit to go get trashed in Washington, D.C., I'm not. But I do believe that it's my public service. And I really did because I'm not trying to be cliche right now. I took my oath of enlistment very seriously and it says to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
And when you have people systematically, systematically using legislation to really take down and dismantle the Constitution, they are no longer friends of the people. They're no longer defending the Constitution. And so we have to rise to that occasion whether or not we want to, because it's the right thing to do.
Ana Pollina, LIUNA, congressional candidate in Florida. You can find her and support her at vote on Apolinar dot com.

All right, so now we're removing Goodyear tires from the presidential limousine, The Beast, and I'm actually glad I mean, I, I hate boycotts, but why support these companies that are working against what you believe?
The Goodyear tires had a training session and somebody picked took a picture of their their training program, one of the screens, and it said the you know, the dos and don'ts, if you will, of of working at Goodyear Tire.
So they had zero tolerance. What was acceptable? Black Lives Matter, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender pride.
What is unacceptable? Blue lives matter. All lives matter. Magga attire, political affiliated slogans or material.
Wow, that's, uh huh, because, you see, BLM is not political and the LGBTQ agenda, no politics, no politics are there. No, but supporting police officers, you know, staying alive, that's political. And everyone staying alive, that's certainly political. You know, look, it's a terrible policy. They tried to deny it and say that it wasn't really it wasn't from their corporate office.
But there's some new audio which is coming out now from internal Goodyear deliberations, which not only say that the exact policy has printed on this document, but also extended. I would say, you know, it's it's pretty blatant. And I don't think it's a leak.
I don't think it's legal for for for for what they did. I don't think it's legal what they're doing. You can't discriminate based on color of skin.
Now, I know the California Constitution is attempting to to remove the idea that discrimination is wrong because they want to be able to discriminate against the right groups that they want to discriminate against.
My understanding is that if as an employer, you're not really allowed to do that, we kind of got rid of that a while ago. We all sort of agreed that it was a good idea to get rid of discrimination based on color of skin.
Yeah, but that's when we were stupid and racist. OK, so, Goodyear, I have to tell you, if you're looking for tires and I hate to say this because there's a lot of good people that are working at the Goodyear plant in Ohio and that's the problem.
It's like the people who came up with that policy are not losing their jobs. No.
The people who are going to lose their jobs if people stopped by Goodyear tires are random, regular people who work at the factories and the offices.
That's when those people need to decide what's important if they rose up.
I think they are, though. That's that's that's what leaking this stuff is. Yes. I mean, it's important to expose it. And it is the type of thing that sometimes does get reversed when when when the sunlight hits it.
Maybe that'll be enough. Once you think this won't.
No, BLM is look, we have to talk about it and we have to talk about the organization and and expose it, because if you don't, people are going to think it's just this wonderful. It's not a corporation and it is a it's a really, really bad anti family, anti west anticapitalist group that really is using George Floyd and Black Lives for their own agenda. This is the Glenn Beck program. Shame on Goodyear and I hate to say that because of all the good people that work there, but shame on them.
All right. I want to congratulate you on buying a new boat. It's going to come in handy when you go on that vacation.
You just paid for sure. The kids are going to love having all that room in the new SUV.

This is the Glenn Beck program.
Well, we have the leaked audio now that proves that good your statement was was bogus and shows that it was actually worse because it is race based. And if you don't know what we're talking about, let me recap before we play the audio.
Yesterday, there was a slide that was being showed to employee training in a class for employees. And it was on this unbelievable slide.
It showed that you what was acceptable and what was not acceptable.
And the things that were not acceptable were blue lives matter, t shirts, hats, anything like that. All lives matter. Any Magga attire. Wow.
Politically affiliated slogans or material. What was acceptable? Black Lives Matter. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender pride LGBT. So you could wear anything you wanted with that. But if you did anything, you know, pro cops or Magga, you had they had zero tolerance.
OK. You know, we can't lose Goodyear and we can't lose jobs at Goodyear, but unless the employees stand up and the way to get the employees to stand up, I think because I'll bet you most of the employees disagree with this. If we can't get the employees to to stand up at the beginning, then you've got to apply pressure. And I hate to say it, but if I were buying tires today, it wouldn't be a good year because they came out and said, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
The visual in question was not created or distributed by the Goodyear corporate and and it wasn't part of a diversity training class.
Uh huh. OK, so an oddly worded denial from the start, right?
Yeah, so what if it wasn't if it wasn't a part of a diversity training class?
In some ways it's worse yet. It was it was it for like you're just giving it to people on a normal day. That's even worse. At least people can tune out in your diversity training days. So now let's play the audio. And this is the audio from Goodyear. Listen.
Pride on their face covering the wristbands that will be deemed approved because it complies with zero tolerance stance. Stop, stop, stop.
Let me let me give you the full statement.
Some people may wish to express their views on social justice or inequality or equity issues such as Black Lives Matter or LGBTQ pride on their face coverings, shirts or wristbands that will be deemed approved because it applies with a zero tolerance stance.
However, go ahead. Yes.
So she wears all blue white lives matter. Sure. Or face covering. Covering that would be not appropriate. Now what you can wear trying try to comply with this law that way. You know, everybody feels good in this factory. I want to make sure guys think about what we do in this factory. Right. We all work together to make fire that. Can we do that so we get paid to do so. Just continue to do that and do the right thing.
Keep this place where it's always been a good place to work. Well, you've you've lost that because you've caved in, this is there's two things going on. Let me finish what he said. You can wear anything, Black Lives Matter, et cetera, et cetera.
However, any associate that wears all or blue or white lives matter shirts or face coverings, that will not be appropriate.
Now, he references in there the zero tolerance policy, which the only thing different in the zero tolerance policy slide. Then what he just said was what mega? Well, he didn't didn't mention what Magga and he did did mention white lives matter with white lives matter in the initial one. I don't remember.
I don't think so. Let me look. Not a lot of people wearing white sweater. No blue lives matter. All lives matter MAGGA attire, politically affiliated slogans or material.
So it doesn't look good for Goodyear. And, you know, Martin Luther King said if you don't do boycotts, your movement doesn't have any teeth. And, you know, everybody has to decide on their own what they're going to do.
But if I were buying tires today, I would make it very clear to Goodyear that I am intentionally not buying a Goodyear tire.
It's amazing to me that these companies keep doing this.
It's like, do you have to realize that this is not a 90 10 sort of split you're talking about here like you're Magga Gear?
Half the country is going to vote for this guy, whether you like them or not.
You can't just eliminate unless you're a partisan organization. Right.
Like, if you're the Huffington Post, you can do all sorts of things to piss off conservatives because no one cares.
Goodyear tires you, half your employees or more than half your employees probably are going to vote for Donald Trump.
I know that doesn't make you happy, but like, you have to be able to understand that you're a business.
You are not a political activist organization. Everyone seems to want to be one. That's the standard. That's the second message from this, I think. I mean, here's this guy and you can hear it in his voice. He's like, come on, guys, let's just remember what we do here. We make tire, right? There's no passion behind it. And it's like, look, guys, can we just please just make the things that roll in the bottom of cars?
Right. So he's he's basically defending this policy and making sure that everybody knows because he's forced to or they're forced to because they are giving in to the minority of Black Lives Matter.
That is going to that minority is going to get smaller and smaller and smaller as time goes on, because as more people see them for who they really are, it's going to become very unpopular. But they are doing the same thing that the the dispassionate Nazis did, the people who were just ran a business or a store and they just wanted to be left alone. They hung the Nazi flag in their store window and they did it only to say, Nazis, leave us alone, just leave us alone.
We're not going to be a problem. We just want we just want to make tires, leave us alone. And that's what he's saying here.
However, he's expecting the white people. He's expecting the police, the people who are black and white that believe in the police. He's expecting the people, black and white, that vote for Donald Trump. He's expecting the people black and white, that know that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist company. And that wants the destruction of the traditional family and the Western way of life, he's expecting those people just to go along with it, and that's where he's playing.
Please, guys, can we just can we just all know that this is just a bunch of vocal minority here that we're just placating so we can get back to business? That's what he's saying.
If he would have said that, it would have fit perfectly with his tone, know his tone is like, look, we want everyone to be happy.
We want to make some tires. It's a good place to work. Can we just go along with this and not whine about it? Right. I'm not saying that you should whine about this. You should.
But like, as a as someone who's trying to get himself through this announcement and yeah, he's just he was probably the guy who was sitting and I bet there were lots in corporate boardrooms all across the country that are like guys. We make tires, we make tires, are we making a statement about what what right political stuff you can wear? Right. Can we stay out of this? We make tires. We make tires for people who drive cars that, you know, are going to an and rally and we drive car.
We we make tires for police cars.
Can can we stop? Can we stop? We make tires. And, you know, that's happening all over. I am so blessed to work for my own company where we haven't had to have any of these and nor will we have any of these kinds of meetings. It's ridiculous. I don't know how you're doing it, America. And think about this to what party is closer aligned with what Goodyear is actually doing.
You know what? The other party is trying to get rid of cars.
So, you know, there's not a lot of value in Goodyear tires when none of the cars are on the roads.
And if you want to say, oh, well, that's not true. They want they want electric cars. OK, fine. But I mean, what are the tires made out of? Like, right.
Like these are this is a they're made out of fossil fuels.
That's what they're made out of. This is a this is such a ridiculous thing and every company, you know, when this started back in the day, because we were right at the cutting edge of this, and when I say cutting edge, I mean on the knife, like the side getting stabbed by these movements, you know, these sort of fakey movements that would say, oh, well, you know, we get five calls from some random activist group because supposedly Glenn said something on the air and it was always Glenn.
Glenn said something on the air or you never me. That got us in trouble for some reason that someone didn't like some crazy activist and they would call and they'd get the same. Five people would call this back when they were doing it via phone. And then they started doing it via email. And then the same people would get all these emails come in from the same activists over and over again, their form letters.
And I remember thinking at some point these companies learn that what is happening to them is a scam. There's not there's not a large movement saying you can go because they don't learn. They never learn. They didn't learn because they got into the system and they are in positions of power. So they are I mean, Black Lives Matter. They are in positions of power now. All of their supporters, they have them in Washington, D.C. They have. They have they've taken over one of the two political parties.
So you can't ignore them anymore. And and, yes, that's exactly how they built it. And it was all built on Soros money and everything else. And it's dirty as hell and it's Marxist.
But all these companies, they go with it because what are you going to do? What do you do?
What you did a quote from Abraham Kennedy. He's one of the big white. He's in that white fragility sort of world, this new racism.
And his quote was fascinating and so honest and so very much where we are today, which was the only solution for past discrimination is present discrimination. The only solution for present discrimination is future discrimination. They are outwardly advocating for discrimination. It's why California is pulling out of their state constitution.
The the the clause about you're not allowed to vote against the race or color of skin or whatever. They want to be able to discriminate based on the color of skin. Think of that statement there, too. They're pulling it out of constitutions. They're bringing us back four. This isn't progress. This is taking us and dragging us back for hundred years.
All of the worst instincts of human beings these people are trying to bring back when I mean these people I mean left wing activists, almost a very small percentage of them are actually black. This is this is a bunch of white elitists who have wanted this for a really long time.
And they're using the death of George Ford, using black people who have been killed, some, you know, invalid circumstances, some in completely horrific circumstances and saying, you know what, we're going to build this movement on their backs. It's disgusting.
All right. Let me tell you about changing window coverings. Changing them in your house is actually no small feat. If you want it done right, you're not going to wing it and put any old thing up. You're going to go to an expert. Right now, the windows look is one of the most noticeable, noticeable things. When you first walk into a room, it's best to try at least to get it right. Well, blind CENTCOM has been in the business of providing quality and affordable window coverings for over two decades now.

You're listening to Glenn Beck. This is the Glenn Beck program. We have Donald Trump Jr on joining us here in just a few minutes.
I can't I can't wait to hear what it's like to have to watch it. Are they watching it together?
I mean, wouldn't you love I think if Donald Trump would have done a live stream of him just watching the convention, it would have been bigger than the convention itself. You know what I would have watched? That's what I would have watched, you know? Imagine if he was just sitting on the couch with the family and you were just hearing him go, oh, come. Oh, jeez. Yeah, you know what I mean?
And just raw like he usually is. That would have been huge.
Yeah, I think you might do something like that on my Instagram page or something tonight. Just just just watch the speech and just rant about it, because that's how I that's how you watch it. It is. It's impossible. You have to watch it. That is what you do. You just sit back and you make fun of it and you comment on it and you and you pick it apart piece by piece as you go. We should just get together and just do that.
Yeah, that'd be fun.
Yeah. So we have him on coming up in in just a second. And I mean if so many questions to ask, I'm not sure we're going to be able to to get to everything because I, I want to hear what he thinks about the convention, how the Republicans and his dad is not going to repeat the mistakes of this convention. What are they going to do? What have they learned from this convention to make sure that it's better come off like a terrible infomercial?
Boy, that was bad. And then how hard must it be to sit there and hear them talk about your dad stealing the election when they're doing everything they can to steal the election, how they say he's not a great unifier when they are pushing that all white people are racist?
I mean, it's a unifying people and hating white people.
Right. And that's unified. Unified. That's the unifying factor there.
You know, if if you're if you're if you don't agree with them entirely, you are just the worst person ever and should be banished into. I don't even know if the hills are good enough for you.
Yeah. You'll never be seen again, that's for sure. Remarkable. Well, let's we should do this tonight on Instagram at two. Does America at Glenn Beck. I mean, if we can put it on the same, the same time, but I don't follow it on Instagram and we'll put some of it up maybe tonight. That'll be great. All right. Donald Trump Junior is coming up next. Let me tell you about our our spotlight sponsor.
It's built bar. Oh, my gosh. I just had my favorite is Mint Brownie. Have you had that? I don't think I've had been Brownie.
Yeah, it's one of the new flavors. I think Mint Brownie, my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. And it is my it's my fat burden. I mean, if it's there, I'm eating it.
If I go to the store, I'm getting it.
This is a great dessert snack for me that I can have every night. And I get my fix. It's like one hundred and I don't know. Let's see what this one is. It's like one hundred and fifty calories or something like that. So you're not pounding the calories at all and it's healthy.
It's a protein bar, but it's flavor. First they're built bars. Check them out with all of their great new flavors. Get ten dollars off if you use the promo code back at Bill Bar, dotcom built bar dotcom, use the promo code back.
Do it now. What you're about to hear is the fusion of entertainment and. In between programs, not a lot to say this hour, Donald Trump Jr., his comments on the convention, we begin there with him in 60 seconds. This is the Glenn Beck program.
I'm going out on a limb here and thinking that maybe you pay too much for your mobile phone service. I mean, of course you do. You're you're way over paying and you're paying all kinds of hidden fees and everything else. And then they're taking the big mobile companies are taking portions of what you pay and they are applying it to Planned Parenthood and anti 1st and 2nd Amendment. So they're working against you. Every time you make a phone call switch because you have an alternative, you're not only to get the same reliable nationwide service at a low rate because everybody's on the same cell towers now.
But you're also going to support a company that shares your values. And switching is really easy. You can bring your own phone or get a new one. And now, until September 12th, during their school days promotion, you can choose either a free phone or a free month of service. When you switch to America's only conservative cell phone carrier Patriot Mobile, do it now. Plus, Patriot Mobile going to donate a portion of their profits to Students for Life, Patriot Mobile, Dotcom Beck.
Use the promo code back and choose a free month of service or a free phone. Veterans and first responders save even more. Nine seven two Patriot. That's nine seven two. Patriot or Patriot mobile dot com promo code back.
Man needs no interruption, no, no introduction. Donald Trump Jr is joining us now. Don, how are you?
I'm doing well. I also need no interruption. If you give me the mike, I'll just go for you. That's right. OK, so so, Don, tell us, first of all, you watching this convention with your with your family, with your dad, you're watching it separately.
I know. I've been watching it alone. You know, I'm in New York and my father is in D.C., but I've been trying to watch it. It's not easy to get through. My gosh, it's it's painfully boring. And this is from the party that owns Hollywood. They have all these directors involved and this is the best they can come up with. So like ever since Harvey Weinstein went to prison, the Democrats have lost their all.
I will tell you, it's making a lot of conservatives very nervous is because if this is the best they can do. Oh, my gosh, what are the Republicans going to do? What is your day?
It's different. I think. I think you expect you know, again, you expect that artsy nonsense from the Democrats. Instead, you're seeing your hateful drivel, long, boring speeches, you know, hypocrisy that knows no bounds. I mean, you talk about, you know, Obama, you know it. Bill Clinton talking about the sanctity of the Oval Office. You know, Obama talking about enriching themselves from public office. I mean, Obama went in as a community organizer.
He's buying a 20 billion dollar home in Martha's Vineyard. Please spare me no, spare me the nonsense. It's sort of amazing.
So I hesitate to even bring this up because your dad just might do it. But I think your dad would beat the ratings of the Democratic convention tonight just online if he just live streamed and just off the hip, just commented all the way through. I think more people would watch that than are watching the actual convention.
Well, one hundred percent. I actually said something similar during the Democrat debates. Feel like we should just set up a fundraiser, which is just a live stream of jati watching the Democratic debates and commenting in the way that really only he can. Yeah, it would be truly special.
So that brings me to your dad being kind of handicapped here because of covid. I saw your dad speak and I think it was CPAC. And when you watch him live, it is a totally different experience than seeing that live, you know, speech on television. You see him live, you understand him much more. He listens and he learns from the audience. And it's a remarkable thing. He is really, truly remarkable life.
That is his strength. Now, with covid. You don't you don't you don't have the opportunity to for him to play it strength.
And I think that's part of the deal here to handicap him.
How is he going to maneuver around this so he can use his strength?
Well, I think you're 100 percent right in many senses. I think there's definitely a political element of this that the Democrats are loving, that you've never seen a political campaign like Joe Biden's where they're absolutely thrilled that they have an excuse to not put their candidate in front of the American people who would be voting for him. You know, that's literally never been done in political history. You know, Donald Trump, that's his polling when he's speaking to a crowd of 25000, you know, he sees what they're into.
He sees the reaction. He doesn't go to a pollster where, you know, as you said, they haven't been right about much of the last few years. You know, he gets that directly from the American people. So they're trying to cut that out. I think the difference now, I think it would have been much more problematic if this had happened in 2016, because now the American people see it. But more importantly, Donald Trump made promises to the American people in 2016.
And unlike most of our politicians, since we're accustomed to promises Donald Trump actually delivered, I mean, I could understand, you know, if you're pro-life, you know, I could understand being skeptical of sort of the New York City brash billionaire like, is this guy going to really fight for pro-life? Like if you're pro religious liberty, if you're pro to if whatever it may be. The reality is Donald Trump's been as strong on those issues, if not stronger than any president in modern American history.
So now for conservatives, they see that and more importantly for everyone else, they also see that a president came in with no experience, no Washington ties, was able to get to the greatest economic numbers our country has ever seen. Most number of new start up business, lowest unemployment for every demographic and every minority. Your 401k is through the roof. Even in a global pandemic, the numbers are still better than many of the ones under the Obama administration.
So, you know, I always say if Joe Biden like if he knew how to fix anything, why didn't he tell Obama? Why didn't he do it? Why did. Wait 50 years as a Washington, D.C. swamp creature, half a century, glad to know now he's going to deliver. I'd ask you this name a single Joe Biden accomplishment that was good for America. His accomplishments are he built up China. He pushed for them to be in the World Trade Organization.
They grew their economy from one that was the size of the Netherlands to the behemoth that is today because of people like Joe Biden pushing for it, but like others, and for China to name a single Joe Biden accomplishment. And now we are to believe that this guy is going to fix America coming out of a pandemic brought to us by a country that he spent the last half a century building. It's asinine. And I think people see it. And it's not only that.
I don't think he's really making the policies. I mean, I and I don't mean this with any kind of glee or anything else.
I want to ask you this this way.
If your father at any time became as addled as I think Joe Biden is, wouldn't your family gather around and say, hey, dad, dad, stop, you don't? Correct. Let's not let's not wreck 100 percent.
Right, 100 percent. It's you know, it's grotesque. Family is know Hunter Biden has taken one point five billion from the Chinese government. Now, was he invested? No, not really. He never did that. But, you know, the brother is making, you know, multi million dollars from getting housing contracts in Iraq. Minor detail. He's never built a home. You know, I actually literally wrote a book about it. I mean, it's coming out first week of September called Liberal Privilege, because that's the kind of stuff that's going on.
So if their entire family's livelihood wasn't depended on Joe Biden's taxpayer funded office, you know, they would have the decency to do it. And again, I don't mean to make light of, you know, dementia or any sort of correct. By the way, I think he could be a great grandfather, maybe a great guy. But like, are we really going to trust the nuclear football? Are you really going to trust your children and your grandchildren's futures on this guy?
Because we want to be sensitive and kowtow around the issue of mental decline. I mean, I guess it is a sensitive thing for many people, but that doesn't mean you should be like, yeah, you know, it's sensitive. I want to be right about this. So let's just give him the presidency. I mean, it's it's sort of insane, right? It's very insane.
And I think your your dad's going to have a mine field to be able to point that out without having everybody pounce and say, look how many years.
But it has to be pointed out in the debates, it it has to be made clear he's he's not there.
He's just not there. Listen, Gwen, if Donald Trump made one of the daily Joe Biden type errors, you know, getting where he is confusing his wife from his sister, you know, not being able to speak to a group of five or six people, I know if you're a fifty year Washington, DC politician, you can't speak to a group of five people without a teleprompter. And even with the teleprompter, you screw it up. It's a problem.
If Donald Trump did one of those things, you would have every television psychologist in America on TV immediately saying he is in the later stages of Alzheimer's and dementia combined. I've never seen anything like this. It's terrible. Twenty Fifth Amendment with Joe Biden. They're like nothing to see here. And it's because the media can push Joe Biden as the moderator. They could try to sell to the American people. Look, it's moderate Joe from Scranton. You know, they don't talk about the fact that he left Sprint at seven.
They don't talk about the fact that he was an elected Washington, DC official since his 20s and has done nothing else. He's not blue collar, Joe, but they can try to sell that image to the American people. While you have people like Kamala Harris with the most liberal voting record in the Senate, even less than Bernie in there, while you have the Biden Sanders joint unity platform, the Biden Bernie Sanders joint unity platform on Joe Biden's website.
So when I say that he's a radical and all a no, he's not. He's a moderate. I'm like, you're not a moderate. If you have the Biden Bernie Sanders joint unity platform on your website, four trillion in taxes. So you, the American people, can have the privilege of paying for free health care and education for illegals. Now, you don't have the privilege of getting that for yourself, but you can pay for it for others.
I mean, this is insanity. And so Joe is the perfect sort of puppet for the left. The real darling of this thing is Kamala Harris. But the media, that's who they always wanted and that's basically who they'll get if Joe Biden is the president. No, he's not going to be the guy to do it.
I know we have such little time left. I know you have to get to your your uncle's funeral today. And I'm I'm so sorry for what happened over the weekend, the way that was handled by so many. It's it's really despicable. I don't know who we've turned into. But let me just ask you a couple of questions on the election.
I don't know how you just don't lose your mind between the Russia hoax and then the Ukraine phone call hoax and now the post office hoax and all of these things. It's what they're doing, it's what they're doing, they're self diagnosing every time, you know, something going on. Ukraine. Yup, there is something you're doing it in Ukraine. You know, there's somebody is trying to steal election. Yep. You're trying to steal the election. What can you what is what is the president going to do?
Because if he doesn't win in a landslide, they're going to tear this country apart. How can he issued how can doing it anyway.
I know. I know. I'm doing it anyway. No, no, no. They're unifiers. I know that. No, no. We learned last night they're unifiers.
Well, they're unifiers. If you agree with 100 percent every ridiculous thing, if you veer off a little bit, like if you're like, OK, I agree with you. Ninety nine percent. But I want to I like my Second Amendment. You're persona non grata. You're canceled. They'll destroy your business. They'll cut you off. You know, it's over. So, you know, it's interesting. You brought up sort of all the hoaxes that continue and you even see the post office hoaxes.
The do I know the latest outrage? It's crazy nonsense. He literally is on the record saying hell on the post office, but I want to do that while simultaneously funding the American people, unlike Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, who literally they want millions of dollars for the Kennedy Center for the Arts. Now, hey, I'm sure the Kennedy Center for the Arts is wonderful. But at a time like this, when Americans have lost jobs, where businesses were struggling, like, how about we give the American taxpayer money back their money?
The other problem with all of the hoaxes is that it actually only makes Donald Trump's accomplishments all that much more significant. Think about it, the economic accomplishments, the geopolitical accomplishments, getting a peace deal done in the Middle East. But while he's spent three years trying to throw me in jail, they you know, they pushed that he was an agent of Russia. Somehow they continued to do that. To this day, Glenn, you have the impeachment hoax.
You have all of these lies. And he was still despite more incoming fire than any president has ever taken, he was still able to deliver for the American people. Now, imagine what we could do if we had the house would get the house back. We had it once, but we had weak leadership in the House. They weren't going to push for any of these plans because, you know, they were more concerned about some liberal in Washington, D.C. writing a mean article about that was going to happen anyway.
So this time around, you could do it. But I mean, to me, the incoming that he took make makes his accomplishments that much more important.
I want to I want to respect your time. I would just urge that you please look into a way to keep accounts on high tech. They're going to sway the election and they're already doing it. And, you know, there's a hundred percent.
Listen, this has been an issue that has been a you know, one that's really important to me. I've been probably one of the most vocal conservatives on the issue. I've been doing it for three years. I mean, you know, I was canceled two weeks ago off of Twitter. I was thrown off Instagram a few times. They censor my post even when they're 100 percent accurate. In the general scheme of the things, the social media censorship has been a disaster for conservatives.
And honestly, unfortunately, not a lot of Republicans have even been aware of it. So guys like me started breaking it off because they do that. Oh, no, it's free market. Oh, I know that. Free market when you get liability protection from the U.S. government. Hey, man. But then you're acting as a publisher deciding who's getting to do what and what you notice. You never heard of a single left wing organization, regardless of how radical, who's been thrown off a social media platform.
But everyone can name 50 conservatives who've been thrown off, censored the E platform, or just outright thrown off the platform. So it's a it's a scary thing. Police are definitely putting their hands on the scale of this election.
Please look into Dr. Robert Epstein's work up in Boston. He is for ten million dollars. He can monitor what's happening that will be immediately erased is ephemeral stuff. And it's he's got it down. He just needs some support. So look into that, if you can.
One last thing, deep state, are we going to see people go to jail for what happened with the impeachment and Ukraine stuff? I sure hope so.
I mean, God knows I was one of the you know, other than my father, I was probably the number two target of their hoax, you know? So I hope so. You know, if it's taking a long time, I hope it's because they're getting their ducks in a row to do it right. You know, but, you know, if you didn't believe in the deep state in 2016, I'd forgive you. If you don't believe in it now, you're an idiot.
And so, you know, we do have to combat these kind of atrocities because, by the way, this shouldn't be a partisan issue. It's not because they can manipulate it against Donald Trump. But like no American, regardless of your political affiliation, should want or think that this could ever happen again to any president, any president. What happened was an absolute disgrace. And too many people in Washington, DC are more concerned about preserving the institutions of government rather than.
The Constitution itself, and that should scare all of us, because you see that honestly, you see it a lot from people on the right. Oh, you know, well, I've known for a long time. He's my buddy, so I'm not going to do anything. I'm like your buddy, you know, literally, he was involved in the first non peaceful transition of power in two hundred and forty plus years. And you're going to give them a pass because you've known him.
That's pretty sad. You know, the FBI corruption at the top. And again, I want to make the distinction between the door kickers, the guys on the ground who come up to me all the time. I mean, I'm a competitive shooter. I sort of go in those circles. I mean, they come up to me. They literally apologize for the disgrace of what's happened to leadership at the FBI for those sorts of things to happen. You know, the media makes Comey his DA there, darling.
I mean, the guy is the most sanctimonious joker I've ever seen in my life. You know, it's almost embarrassing that this guy could actually ascend to the top of the FBI. But that's because, again, to get anywhere in D.C., you have to become a bureaucrat. You have to sell out yourself. You have to be one of them. And that's scary. And it needs to stop.
Donald Trump, Jr., thank you so much for being on the program. Appreciate everything you and your family have gone through in our name. Thank you for that. And congratulations on the Middle East. It is an unbelievable accomplishment. Thanks so much.
We'll talk to you about bye bye. Donald Trump Jr. All right.

And they were so much that I would have liked to spend time. But they are on their way to the the funeral for his brother, for his uncle, Donald Trump, Donald Trump's brother, and. I can't imagine, you know, they were saying that they were going to have the funeral, the White House and everything about having at the White House, would you want to go out to a church?
To that circus. For a funeral, really, no matter what you do at this point, I mean, come any president, but certainly this one more than others.
I mean, just a circus, just a circus to be able to to do that.
And you know what? They're I mean, you know what they just already did to your family. Yeah.
That the media was disgusting about that, as they tend to be. I think they tend to exploit death at any any way they can to try to. It's not just the media. It's the left. Generally, it is a death cult. It really is. And in many ways, the left is a death cult. They they they cheer for it. They you know, they get on. They they use death whenever they can to scare. It is a death cult.
It really is. It's a terrifying philosophy on the overlap. All right. Back in a minute. This is the Glenn Beck program, Bill, a type of runner usually places, you know, second or third in his age group at the races, and he lives in Colorado. So we're we're talking races through the mountain passes.
I mean, I don't even like driving through the mountain passes.
I mean, as a oh, it's so uphill the whole time, naturally, because I'm convinced that God wouldn't have invented cars if he wanted us to run.
Bill started having, you know, a lot of knee and leg pain, which you don't have because I don't run because I probably have a heart attack.
Fortunately, he listens to this program. So when the pain began to get bad, he already knew about relief factor and it didn't take long. Within a couple of weeks, he said, the pain was already beginning to subside. Bill could go back to running his stupid races. Bill, stop making me look bad relief factor.

I want to share with you one of the most incredible stories I've ever read.
This is this is from Forbes magazine and the headline is You must not do your own research.
So the exact opposite of what I have said to you is now Forbes, I tell you all the time, do not believe me, I can make mistakes and information is not fully yours. And you can't fully supported or dismiss it unless you have done your own homework.
And I've also said when it comes to this question with boldness, even the very existence of God for you, if there be a God, he must rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear those two things I have been saying to you for 20 years. Now, listen to this article. Research both sides and make up your own mind. It's simple, straightforward, common sense advice and when it comes to issues, but and when it comes to issues like vaccinations, climate change and the coronavirus, it can be dangerous, destructive and even deadly.
The techniques that most of us use to navigate most of our decisions in life, gathering information, evaluating it based on what we know and choosing a course of action can lead to spectacular failures when it comes to a scientific matter. The reason is simple. Most of us, and even of those of us who are scientists, the scientists ourselves lack the relevant scientific expertise needed to adequately evaluate that research on our own in our own fields. Were aware of the full suite of data, how those puzzle pieces fit together, and what the frontiers of our knowledge is.
When lay persons espouse opinions on those matters, it's immediately clear to us where the gaps are in their understanding and where they've misled themselves in their reasoning.
When they take up arguments of contrarian scientists, we recognize what they're overlooking, misinterpreting or admitting. Unless we start valuing the actual expertise that legitimate experts have spent lifetimes developing, doing our own research could lead to immeasurable and unnecessary suffering.
Stu, why did no one see the 2008 crash coming, and I did.
What did the guy from Columbia, the the professor from Columbia, economics professor, say to me when he came up, he said, where's your degree? Where'd you get your degree in economics?
And I said, I don't have one. He said, I knew it because it was you were looking at it from a different perspective.
You were lost in the same metrics or in Iraq.
He said, I cannot get my students to think like you, he said, because they're so trained to all think like a monolith. They're all they're all trained to say, oh, no, this is what the truth is.
And so only an outside observer can look at and go, the emperor has no clothes.
Hello. This is this is so destructive to not just society, but to your own personal power, this you know what this is? You've got to go to the high priest because you don't understand Latin.
OK, you don't understand Latin. You say, oh, well, God, you know, Jesus came to rescue us as individuals and he wants a personal relationship with me. Yeah. Yeah. Well, that's a cute little understanding.
But you don't know all of the rules because you don't understand Latin. So come to me and I'll tell you what those are. That's total control. Total control. Now, they say, let's start with a simple, low stakes example.
Fluoride in the drinking water, on one hand, fluoride is is a simple ion that shows up in various concentrations, including naturally through calcium fluoride in bodies of water all across the world. When humans ingest too little of it, particularly at a young age, it leads to weaken tooth enamel and greater rates of cavities. When humans ingest too much of it, it leads to tooth discoloration and various severities of dental flora. Fluorosis in extreme cases, significantly too much or too little.
Fluoride can also lead to other problems blah, blah, blah. In most places in the U.S. and Canada, our drinking water is fluoridated at specific levels that are safe and effective for humans of all ages. But in places like Colorado Springs, Colorado, significant amounts of fluoride are removed from the water, bringing the levels down to acceptable values. In other places like New York City, fluoride is added to the water. Controlling the fluoride levels of water is safe and effective.
Public health intervention reducing dental caries in children by 40 percent.
However, there are major cities in the world like Portland. Where the public or city council, respectively, has voted in the case of Portland repeatedly not to add fluoride to their drinking water and is expected, the typical cavity rates are about 40 percent higher where the water is fluoridated.
There's an old saying I've grown quite fond of recently. You can't reason with somebody out of a position they didn't reason themselves into. When most of us research an issue, what we're actually doing is formulating an initial opinion. First time we hear about something, then evaluating everything we encounter after that through that lens of our gut instinct, finding reasons to think positively about the portions of the narrative that support or justify our initial opinion and finding reasons to discount or otherwise dismiss the portions that detract from it.
Of course, that's not what we think we do. We're doing. We think of ourselves as the hero of our stories, cutting through misinformation and digging up the real truth on the matter. We think that just by applying our brainpower and our critical reasoning skills, we can discern whose expert opinions are trustworthy and responsible. We think we can see through who's a charlatan and a fraud. We can tell what's safe and effective from what's dangerous and ineffective.
Except for most all of us, we can't.
I, I excuse me. First of all, what he described is not critical thinking, that's not critical thinking, that's not an honest questioning. If I go in and I'm trying to prove what I think is right, right. That is not investigating and doing your own homework, that's convincing yourself. And there's a great deal of difference. I've told you many times I have started down a road of research and I realized halfway in, boy, if I continue to go down this road, I'm going to find things that are going to have to make me reevaluate a lot of stuff, I believe.
And do I really want to do that? Because it's really hard. I'm proud to say, in all cases I've said yes.
Yes, I do. I want to know the truth. The question is, do you want to know the truth? Why is Forbes telling us that you can't figure out what's right and what's wrong, that you shouldn't question anyone? Well, here it is, if we if we would only listen to them, it's absolutely foolish to think that you, a non expert who lacks the very scientific expertise necessary to evaluate the claims of experts, you know, like the experts that said the world was flat.
The the experts that said the world revolves around the sun. The experts that have told us all kinds of stuff.
Butter is bad for you. Butter is good for you. If we don't listen to them. We're going to be having trouble, we can't do a better job than the actual bona fide experts of separating truth from fiction or fraud, when we do do the research ourself, we almost always wind up digging deeper into our own positions. When left to their own devices, a substantial fraction of people will choose not. You ready? To fully vaccinate themselves or their children.
This is all about the covid vaccine, this is and I'll bet you this was written with the help of the research that we told you was being done about a month ago where they were testing. How do we convince people to get the covid? And the first part is just to nudge. It's to make people feel like, you know, little guilty, make them feel like you're not so smart. Other people are smarter. You should just kind of go along with it.
I bet you this. This is part of that research. This article is written.
It's interesting because now they're saying that the big group of people who don't want to get the covid vaccine because there's a lot of people who don't want to get vaccines for various reasons that have been in that area for a long time.
The new group of people who don't want to get the covid vaccine are liberals because they don't trust Donald Trump. They think Donald Trump is trying to force the vaccine through to win the election. And they're terrified of it because they think he's going to force everybody to cut corners and it won't be safe. So people who are actually pro vaccine are turning against it because of Donald Trump's involvement. That's a fascinating development to me.
I have news for you. You're only really nonpartisan. If you don't trust this, cover this this possible vaccine. It wouldn't matter if Obama did it or Bush did it or Lincoln did it or Trump did it. This has never been done before. We've never moved anything this fast. And they are moving hell and high water. And I think it's it's great that they try it, but I'm not taking it. I'm not taking it for a long time.
I want to see what everybody else is happening. Get Donald Trump Junior back on the phone. Tell him to send me the first dose.
I want I want the four.
I want to finally tell Donald Donald Trump Junior could set me any needle. He wants it. I'll just give it a whirl. I'm sick of this. I want to go to movie theaters again. I want movies to come out. But no, I mean, this is much more my position than I think a lot of people's. But I like I am totally fine with the vaccine vote. Again, this all means this is all qualified, right?
Like, am I taking on Vladimir Putin just came out with.
Yeah, you can. The one the one from the Bujon Institute of Virology, which they're actually in the middle of making one. Correct. It makes me a little more doubtful of it. I mean, you I'd want to know if I'm not I'm not saying I would do how. Also, I do this, too. I would I would come up with my own my own determination of my situation and what my health might be. Right. That's what you're supposed to do as an individual, right?
You don't want to take it. I want to take it. Whatever. Like you make up your own decisions. And that's how at least America used to work, right?
Not anymore. Right.
I mean, look, if I'm seventy years old, I might be one of the first to stand up and say, you know what, give me give it a whirl.
I'll give it a whirl because I want to have my life back. I want to be able to go out. And they're saying it's safe knowing that if there's any long term problems with it or something like that, that I don't really have long term plans, you know, anyway.
But I have to tell you, I'm fifty five. I'm not taking it. I'm not taking it.
And not because it's Donald Trump or the government or anything else. No one's ever done anything this fast.
It's by a significant margin. And it would be great if it if it works.
And it is it I mean, I'm I'm not that concerned about dying from coronavirus. I mean, I hate to say it, but I took my Heidrick Hydroxyl, chloroquine and zinc when everyone in my family, everyone in my family who I was not social distance from because we were all in the same house when everyone in the family had it. I took zinc and hydroxyl chloroquine before I got any symptoms and I was fine. And I have a compromised immune system.
Are you kidding me?
Well, what was that? That was either God, which you don't believe in or it was hydroxyl, chloroquine and zinc, which you don't believe in, or I'm just Superman. How that you are in peak physical condition.
I mean, look, you say, oh, yeah, look at me. You don't get into any Hall of fame if you're not really in physical condition.

This is the Glenn Beck program. So, Stu, you looked at me like I can't believe you were surprised that I would take the vaccine.
I mean, you are a guy who who drank weedkiller.
I drank Roundup. That's all I mean. So you did do that, OK, which I wouldn't have done it. It's you know, yes, I would I would not recommend. It's not delicious. I will tell you that. Not designed.
Right? Sure. Sure. And I think you also drank fracking fracking fluid. Yes. So again, not designed. So, again, I'm not I'm not surprised that you would line up to take it, but you are a science minded guy. And my only thing is not that you are anti vaccine or I'm anti back. So it's that or I wouldn't trust the government one way or another, which I don't. But that doesn't even come into play, you know, on this statement of I'm not lining up to be one of the first, I want to see what happens.
We've never rushed anything this fast and it's noble that we're doing it.
But, you know, maybe those who are really concerned about getting it should be the ones that get it.
I mean, we're taking probably three years off of the research timeline. Yeah.
And part of the reason why, you know, I volunteered to for for studies for this. Did you really? Yeah, I'm I'm I'm on the list.
Have been called. I don't know what that says about me, but I feel that's not save him. But I actually part of the reason why is because I'm incredibly impressed by this whole operation. I mean, operation warp speed, something the administration always together is. It's a scientific marvel. It is. And if they do come up with the right vaccine and it works, Donald Trump deserves an incredible amount of of of credit for it. They have a lot of the corners that they have cut, not scientific corners, their money corners.
So I'm comfortable with that. It shouldn't talk about that more tomorrow about the whole process.
