Oh, I cannot wait to give you my review of the RNC convention. I can't wait. I can't wait. I can't wait. We've only got 60 seconds to wait for it, but that's too long. I just want to say this before we begin. These radical revolutionaries are the dumbest people I've ever seen. First, they build a guillotine in front of the White House last night. I mean, what more does America need to see? And then afterwards, they attack Rand Paul.
A hundred radical revolutionaries, he said, would have killed him if it wasn't for the police. And you see the videotape of it and they are going after him. These people are absolute animals. These anarchist communist revolutionaries are animals. And the choice in America has never been more clear. We begin there in 60 seconds.
This is the Glenn Beck program. So I tell you about Alan, who used to suffer from from back pain, really, really bad. He had a severe accident on the job and the pain was so intense afterwards that for over a year he couldn't even go to work.
And he was at wit's end, unable to imagine what he would do next. His wife then told him about relief factor over and over again.
The guardian angels in our lives turn out to be our wives. We tend to be too stubborn. But after three weeks of taking relief factor every day, Alan woke up in bed one morning, rolled over to his wife and said, Honey, the pain is gone. She said, Oh, I'm glad it helped. No, no.
He said, You don't understand. It's gone, Alan. Alan got his life back and you can to relief factor, not a drug developed by doctors, 70 percent of the people who've gone to order it order more because it works for them.
They get their life back. It's nineteen ninety five. Do it now. Relief factor dotcom. Eight hundred five hundred eighty three eighty four eight hundred hundred eighty four.
Relief factor dotcom. Well, before I give you my full review of this, let's just. Let's just start with the president's speech. Let me just give you some clips. We start with a clip one. We're going to go down the line here, guys. Trump speech, most important election cut.
So tonight, I say to all Americans, this is the most important election in the history of our country. There has never been such a difference between two parties or two individuals and ideology, philosophy or vision than there is right now. Our opponents believe that America is a depraved nation. We want our sons and daughters to know the truth. America is the greatest and most exceptional nation in the history of the world.
It is the most important election, and I, I, I think I said in twenty sixteen, I'm not going to say that again because it's always been, you know, potato, potato. This is a stark difference. And that point was made for the last three days in ways I am shocked by.
I can't wait to tell you about things that actually personally I felt coming up in just a minute.
So most important election. Absolutely. This next election will decide. And if it's not a root.
It it may not decide we may go into, you know, an 18, 60 sort of situation, but there is a possibility this is a route because I think the Democrats are so out of step with the American people and that will send a very loud message. Now, one of the best lines of the speech was this cut to in the legs backward views.
They do not see America as the most free, just an exceptional nation on Earth. Instead, they see a wicked nation that must be punished for it, since our opponents say that redemption for you can only come from giving power to them. This is a tired anthem spoken by every repressive movement throughout history. But in this country, we don't look to career politicians for salvation in America. We don't turn to government to restore ourselves. We put our faith in Almighty God.
The again, the difference was so strong, it was so strong where they have denied God in their platform, where they cut God out of the Pledge of Allegiance.
The difference here is if you are a believer, there is a home for you and it doesn't matter. I think I think everything was done in this convention not to just rally the base. I think this was done to rally the Democrats who have lost their faith in their own party.
And it was allowing the base to be riled up because the base is not who the media says it is. We're not right wing extremists that hate black people and gays and everything else. We're not those people. And if we were, you wouldn't have the reaction from the right that you're having right now. The right loved this convention, loved it. I don't know a single person who has actually watched it that hasn't said, oh, my gosh, the message was so great and so uniting.
Did you notice mainstream media and the Democratic Party, how many black faces there were, how many people that were talking about being from humble roots? Have you noticed how the right is cheering when you see Alice Johnson? We're supposed to hate people want people in jail all the time and no mercy. Have you noticed? I think this is so clear, they did I don't know who produced this, I'm guessing that it was Donald Trump and Ivanka were somebody somebody had discipline, unlike I've ever seen, perhaps ever in television.
It was from start to finish. Now, let me give you the cardinal rule from Donald Trump last night. Listen to this.
From the moment I left my former life behind and it was a good life, I have done nothing but fight for you. I did what our political establishment never expected and could never forgive. Breaking the cardinal rule of Washington politics. I kept my promise.
Really, really, really, really good if you listen to his speech last night, it was the most humble speech.
Now, he did say a couple.
I can't remember what they were, but there are a couple of statements like, you know, and I put the moon up there in the sky for him last night. You know, there was a couple of things that were, you know, typical Donald Trump. But this was the most humble speech I have heard from Donald Trump.
He used the word you far, much, far, far more many times than me. I think at least that was my impression. He talked about you and we we did this. We'll do it together. Where in 16 it was all about. I'm the only guy. It was not this was a very we're in this together speech, which I thought was outstanding for him.
Here they are.
Here is the president in a very powerful cancel culture section of our country, wasn't built by canceled cultural speech codes and so crushing conformity.
We are not a nation of timid spirits. We are a nation of fierce, proud and independent American patriots. We're a nation of pilgrims, pioneers, adventurers, explorers and trailblazers who refuse to be tied down, held back or in any way reined in. Americans have steel in their spines, grit in their souls, and fire in their hearts. There is no one like us on Earth. I want every child in America to know that you are part of the most exciting and incredible adventure in human history.
No matter where your family comes from, no matter your background in America, anyone can rise with hard work, devotion and drive. You can reach any goal and achieve every ambition. Our American ancestors sailed across the perilous ocean to build a new life on a new continent. They braved the freezing winters across the raging rivers, scaled the rocky peaks, trekked the dangerous forests and worked from dawn to dusk. These pioneers didn't have money. They didn't have fame, but they had each other.
They love their families. They love their country, and they love their God.
Speechwriter was absolutely perfect for this. It let me go to let me go to Trump speech on Biden defunding the police. Listen to this.
The most dangerous aspect of the Biden platform is the attack on public safety. The Biden burning manifesto calls for abolishing cash bail, immediately releasing four hundred thousand criminals onto the streets and into your neighborhoods. When asked if he supports cutting police funding, Joe Biden replied, Yes, absolutely. When Congresswoman Ileana Omar called the Minneapolis Police Department a cancer that is rotten to the root. Biden wouldn't disavow her support and reject her endorsement. He proudly displayed it shortly later on his website, displayed it in big letters.
Make no mistake, if you give power to Joe Biden, the radical left will defund police departments all across America. They will pass federal legislation to reduce law enforcement nationwide. They will make every city look like Democrat. Run Portland, Oregon. No one will be safe in Biden's America. My administration will always stand with the men and women of law enforcement.
Another great line that came next. Cut, please.
Joe Biden's agenda is made in China. My agenda is made in the USA.
I love it. And then one last clip and you'll enjoy this if you are watching us on Blaze TV right now.
But the fireworks afterwards. We're like nothing I've ever seen, they I mean, it this is honestly we have slipped through a wormhole.
This is the kind of production value I expect from the DNC. They always get imagery and everything else, and they're very good at that. And the Republicans have never been good at that. This is what you get when you have somebody who has been in television and knows how to produce something. He that this thing, image wise from start to finish, was rock solid, rock solid.
They didn't, shockingly enough, play Kool and the Gang celebration. That was the Democrats. They didn't have little party poppers that they you know, they pulled behind Joe Biden in throwing balloons where, you know, Donald Trump had to act surprised. It was amazing. And then the fireworks afterwards, split screen here, here. These are the fireworks between the DNC and the RNC.
I mean, it is the difference here was like your backyard fireworks and I mean.
China invented fireworks and they were put to shame Disney, I've seen Disney do eight station fireworks, so synchronized fireworks.
Three hundred and sixty degrees around you, they did it for their 15th anniversary of the Magic Kingdom. And it was it was never seen anything like it.
Disney was put to shame with the ending, and then I loved it.
After the fireworks, they come out with Nessun Dorma, the opera, the song they had an opera singer doing Nessun Dorma.
If you were a liberal that always thought that Republicans were racist were hicks, they only understood country music. They had no culture. Your head popped last night. You just like you didn't know what to think because everything was turned upside down.
This convention and Donald Trump has fundamentally transformed in a positive way the Republican Party. If this is the Republican Party and that is this is how their messaging with with gay people who aren't like and we've got to have another mark, just gay people who are like, yeah, I'm gay and nobody here cares. Now, let me tell you what's what's important. You have you have African-Americans who are not being talked down to.
If this is the Republican Party, there is no choice. This is a new dawn and and I couldn't have done it any better. I mean, I couldn't there's nothing I can pick apart here.
Really, honestly, really, really well done.
All right. Back in just a second. First, let me tell you about our spots. A sick freak simply safe. One of the people who works for me, Josh got is simply safe package. Just the other day he wrote me a note about it this morning. He wrote, Everything looks so sleek, the cameras and sensors are easy to hook up there. Very, very, very discreet. You put them almost anywhere and they just sort of blend into the room.
The HD camera is amazing. You can run everything from portable controller or from an app on your phone. Now, I just have to sign in the front yard and now I have a sign in the front yard telling everybody that my house is protected by simply safe even that gives me a lot of peace of mind. Criminals who better think twice and keep on moving. It's so funny.
I get so many people saying, come on, Glenn, I know you do the commercials, but is it really like that?
Yes. I won't endorse a product unless I believe in it.
And quite honestly, and this not happen. But if I have a client that is treating me differently than they're treating you or their their product is crap, I will tell you on the air and I have done it before with GM for another reason. I canceled the contract.
So I'm telling you, simply safe is the way to go, and you need a home security system, do it now, simply safe back dotcom, get a free food security camera, simply safe.
Beck, dotcom, 10 second station ID.
Joining us now is Stu Bruguiere. Hi, Glenn, how are you? Good, how are you? Good.
So you were a big fan of the event last night. I don't know how you got that. From what I just said, it was pretty, pretty, pretty overwhelming praise.
I I also had a personal revelation last night. I did a tweet storm last night.
I guess I was just feeling really personally horrible. And I want to talk about that later.
But you should feel that way. That's that's a good thing. Thank you. Thank you. Good that you're connecting with that.
Finally, did you see did you did you watch the whole thing? I only and I did this actually every night intentionally. I watch the network coverage. So what I saw was what a lot of people saw. Yeah. Which was the big speeches and the the conversation in between which I thought was what was your impression of everything?
You know, I think I liked it. I mean, I thought it was good. You know, I did see bits and pieces online as well, you know, and Dawn, I thought was particularly powerful. And Dawn was the most powerful.
But there were other you didn't see like the first guy who came up. It was like first or second speaker right at the beginning. Black guy beard. I don't even remember his name. He I guess he works for the president now, but he talked about growing up in Cleveland and, you know, nobody believed in him and everything else.
And he had such a great speech. You know, I never considered becoming a Republican, never. And that was over and over and over again. And the Democrats who were on that were saying, look, I mean, I don't even recognize my party anymore.
Yeah, I mean, it was really powerful. Conventions are statements of strategy, right? Yeah. When watching the Democrats and Republicans back to back, you see what they're doing. Right. The Democrats, I think, quite clearly had a position of we think we're ahead and we don't need to do anything to win this. And Republicans were in a position of we are trying to expand the amount of people who who who should be on our side.
Right. Like they made a case over and over again with minority voters and gay voters and female voters trying to communicate, hey, guys, all the stuff you're hearing in the media isn't true. And it struck me is that the Democrats really are attempting essentially a rerun of Hillary Clinton. I mean, Hillary Clinton's strategy was basically to say Donald Trump's such a bad guy, a guy that you can't trust. He's a terrible human being, therefore, by default, vote for me, but added with, hey, all the chaos in the streets, we're cool.
Yeah, yeah. Well, well, that wasn't exactly Hillary's. Obviously, it was high time, I said, adding that I didn't write with Biden. It was the same sort of thing. And it's like you kind of look at it and it's like, well, why did Hillary lose? Did she lose specifically? Because she's a horrible candidate. It's very possible. That's why she was just a uniquely bad candidate. The other side of that, though, is did she lose because of this strategy, which Biden is taken in in some ways expanded on right.
Where it's like just focus on Trump. We think you'll think he's a bad enough guy to not vote for him. And instead of just not going to Wisconsin, we're not going to go anywhere.
Look, that's an interesting approach to this. That is a it's a risky approach. They think that they can just essentially hide in a closet until November. They're not going to be and they're not going. If they've got three nights going to be, they're going to have to get through. At the very least, it is to say it's not going to work. And Kamala Harris last night came out and said, you know, if you think these riots are going to stop, even if Joe Biden is elected, they're not and they shouldn't.
What what are you insane? More in just a second.

This is the Glenn Beck program. Hello, America, it's Friday, and Pat Gray joins us from Pat Gray. Unleash the podcast. You can get wherever you find your podcast. Pat, what do you think of the convention and the speech last night? Loved the speech last night. Yeah, loved it.
And, you know, as soon as I was watching on Fox last night for the first time and as soon as the speech ended, Chris Wallace and others started telling him apart because I guess it wasn't loud enough for them or it wasn't rally.
I was glad. I was glad.
I liked his tone. Yeah. When the audience did, they did it once. They're like, Woo! And I was like, oh, stop that, stop that.
And I think this was a definite outreach to independents. He's already got the base secure. OK, so let's show the independents that they've got a comfortable place where, you know, he's not insane. He's he's not out of control. He's not what you think he is. He's not what you've been told he is. That's for darn sure. Yeah. And I think he accomplished that really well last night. So I felt really I was watching. I felt really guilty, really guilty about one thing in particular.
You know, I have no problem speaking out about the president's policies. And I have no problem saying in, you know, 2016, I don't think he's going to do any of those things because I didn't think he would. He had no record of of actually believing any of these things. And I said it and I said at the time, if I'm wrong, I'll admit it. And I have admitted that long ago as he started to fulfill those promises, I was shocked by a lot of them.
And but last night, all I could think of was when he called me when my dad died. Do you remember what I said afterwards? He said he called me because he had heard my dad died because we had to leave the hotel, I was staying at a Trump hotel and he talked to me about my dad. And and I hung up the phone and I said, he is running for president. And I attributed the entire phone call to politics.
And in watching this week, I think he is I mean, I think he does not care about what he says about people in person. I mean, you know, on stage or whatever he was, he will call you anything and say anything. He does not care. But I think he is publicly like that.
And I I am afraid I have misjudged him.
I think privately, you know, the thing with Alice Johnson, all of the stories that came out this week from people who were not political, they didn't know Donald Trump. I think one of the most important things about the two conventions was, one, you had a guy in office for forty seven years who now says he's going to do these things. And they had a bunch of people say, look, I've known him for a long time and he's going to do those things.
And they're asking you on Biden, trust me, trust me, I know him. The people that were speaking out about Donald Trump were the exact opposite. I didn't know him. I don't really know him. But look at what he did.
And I think there is it just rang true to me. And I felt so bad about what I said, how I said things in twenty sixteen. And I've been feeling this way for a couple of days during this convention, and I just feel like I need to apologize to his children because I can't imagine.
I mean, I just had Donald Trump Jr on with us and I can't imagine he acted like we were old friends. I can't imagine they didn't have several conversations about me at the dinner table on some of the things that I said.
And I really regret it because I do think publicly, Twitter and everything else I think is out of control and doesn't care, doesn't care, enjoys it. But I think privately he's a different guy because his children love him. And I don't believe, like, for example, Ivanka is a psychopath. And how is it Ivanka loves him and all of his children love him as much as they do if he's a psychopath in real life?
He's not. No, he's not.
I don't think we ever said he was a psychopath. No, no, no, I know. But people think he is because he just doesn't seem like he cares. Yeah. You know, he'll say anything and it looks like he doesn't care. I don't think that's anything wrong. During the campaign, frankly, we disagreed with him on policy, mostly because he you know, I just track record was not one of a conservative.
And if I would have left it at if I would have left it at politics, I think I would have been fine because I've already said I was wrong and I said I would say I was wrong.
But I really went after his character and he can be targeted with his character. And I think that's fair. But I went after his character personally, and I think I was really wrong on the level of I think when it's personal. And he's involved one in one on one, he does care. Oh, I think he does care. Yeah, yeah. And I play the messaging. I think that they want it to get through. Yes, it did.
It worked. And because it didn't, it felt real. You know, none of this felt staged or phony or not at all. You know, none of it seemed like, OK, we're reaching out to the black people again. It didn't feel that way because it was all it was black people who were saying, look at I love this guy. Right. And this guy is going to take us to the next level. The Democrats haven't.
Yeah. And like he said last night, I've done more for blacks in three years than Joe Biden's done in 47. Yeah.
And it's true by a lot. It's true. It is. I mean, what you saw I didn't know about the you know, the funding of the you know, the the black colleges. I didn't I just didn't know all of the things. Did you watch it from the beginning? Good list of stuff, speech. You know you know, the whole convention last night, most of it fell asleep at one point. All right. So I started watching it from the beginning and I was just watching the raw AP feed.
And so I didn't hear any of the commentary and I saw everything that was on stage. They opened up with a couple of people, both African-Americans.
One was like, look, I grew up in really a bad section of town. I never even thought about a Republican. And he now works for the president and was so full of joy. It was an amazing testimony. Then this woman in Houston who said two years ago I was homeless.
Yeah. Did you see that? Yes.
That powerful, very powerful way she ended it and saying, look, don't let anyone tell you you can't do it. Yes, I'm I'm closing on a new house at the end of the month. Yeah. I mean, it was great. It was because of one of his programs. Right. And the other thing I thought was great was that montage they did of actual people who have changed from Democrat to Republican. Yeah. And especially the Democratic Socialist.
Oh, my gosh. She's going to vote for Trump this time. That was powerful, too. And the skinny white kid with a big, you know, all those years. Yeah, he is. He would not be pegged as a Republican over. And he was like, you know, I would never voted for a Republican, but I was living in my apartment, I think, in New York. And he said, you know, I was talking to this neighbor who is black.
And I said, you know, what do you do or whatever. And she said, I'm in the system. And he said, I just realized everything that I thought I was for. Traps people. It just traps them. You know, it was.
Did you get the Richard Grenell thing? Yes. And it was last night or excuse me, two nights ago. Yeah. Where he was basically making a case as Donald Trump is the most pro-gay rights president. Yeah. Ever.
And it's interesting, when we were talking about that since the beginning, he's always been kind of friendly to to gay rights.
I think the only one to ever be elected in favor of gay marriage. Yeah, but it was a power. It wasn't like they're reaching out to these groups and like they're not all consistent, you know, like this bashing of the 1994 crime bill, which is a very, very standard thing now that Republicans are doing with something wildly supported by Republicans at the time, you know, being tough on crime law. It was a law and order bill.
And now at the same time, he's making this case for law and order. He's also kind of making the case against the crime bill because Biden voted for it. It's an interesting thing to try to pull off. I think the same thing goes with, you know, they did it with gay voters.
I thought very well. When you outline everything that he has done and has supported over the years, there's a very important, I think, successful outreach to gay voters who would not normally consider a Republican.
Well, I think you can talk about it because you are the gay character on the show. I like to characterize this. This was the most important part of the convention to me.
But, you know, I think the thing is, is the most important thing is, is that I don't know anybody who had a problem with any of that stuff.
I don't know a single conservative that this was the true representation of the Republican.
Did anybody say, hey, Richard Grenell shouldn't be speaking, he's gay? No, said the interesting dynamic as a party, just as an observer, you're right, is that all the things that he was that Grenell was hitting Biden on were things overwhelmingly supported by Republicans at the time. So but they were overall like they were say like, oh, he was really you know, Joe Biden was really late to gay marriage. So it was the argument.
I understand that as an outreach political tactic. It isn't. Look, the parties are it's different.
I think you're missing something. What you're missing is we weren't talking about gay marriage last night. This this convention was not about policies. It was about the human and American heart. We can disagree on policies, but we don't hate each other. Yeah, and that's one thing. I think the bar was low for Trump because of how evil. He's treated in the media all the time, he's the worst guy ever, he's a racist, he hates gays, he hates Jews, he hates everybody.
So just showing that the guy legitimately cares about people and has empathy for people and has treated people nicely and has people like Richard Grenell, who he's supposedly supposed to hate, who he's been elevated to, roles never achieved by any gay person in history in the United States, at least out outwardly. Right. That is an important message, I think, to get out to people. You know, there was no way you could walk away. If you watch this convention and listened, there is no way you could walk away and say that is a racist guy, a racist party, a gay bashing, gay hating, you know, homosexual, xenophobic party.
There's no there's no way you could walk away unless you just didn't believe it. Which, by the way, a lot of people, you know, you watch the mainstream media reaction to it and it's just so predictable. You know, they were bringing out like, you know, look, yes, he says this, this and this.
But but but look, I mean, even big reporters were doing it after this. I think that particularly that one with Grenell, for whatever reason, really got under the skin of reporters who don't want to you know, they don't want to lose that ground.
They don't want to lose the we're the pro-gay party crowd. They don't want to lose the we're the only ones that African-Americans are allowed to vote for. Those sorts of things are really offensive, really under the skin of not just the Democrats, but the media in general. They knew it and that's why they did it. Oh, yeah. And they did. One of the reasons they did it politically effective, I think I love some of the little shots, the little poke them with pickle forks, things that Trump did during the speech last night that, you know, drove them out of their mind, out of their minds.
You know, one of the things that drove them out of their minds and I just I have no problem as a historian, you know, of I hate to say that because I know how the press would react to that.
But I read a lot of history. I, I, you know, I go to original documents, et cetera, et cetera.
So as a quasi historian, I was I am bothered by the precedence of the backdrop being the White House. This was the first time and I hope it's the last time.
If it was not the era of the pandemic, I would have I would have been screaming bloody murder because I don't like that.
However, with that being said, remember, this was his third choice as a backdrop, yet this is not his first. This was his third Democratic city said no, no to ground zero and all that.
So he's like, okay, I'll do it from where I'm living.
You know, it was not his first choice.
It was it. But then he accentuated it last night just to get under their skin. How many times did he point to the White House to show you the time? It was like you talk about a fork. It was a giant pickle that he took. And he took that fork out and said, you know what?
They said this, but, hey, look where I live.
Yeah. Yeah. Well, that's really good. Thanks, Pat.
All right, I had a really good idea last night, want to share it with you, you know, 20, 20 been an absolute joy. I think we've all you know, it's you know, it's like sitting in a nice hot tub of boiling oil. It's been a wonderful, wonderful year.

Well, one of those guys was Clarence Henderson. And he has he's amazing. He he he marched with us in Birmingham and said it's time for all of us to come together. This has got to stop. We all have to come together. He's an amazing guy.
Well, he spoke this week at the GOP convention, and he's the guy who said, you know, Joe Biden said, if you don't vote for me, ain't black. He said, well, I'm telling you, if you vote if you vote for Joe Biden, you don't know history. He's going to be joining us here in in just a few minutes. Also, we have we have a couple of other things you just don't want to miss.
We have news busters on the managing editor, Curtis Houck, who is going to go through the mainstream media spin on the RNC. This made their heads pop, just made their heads pop. But I also want to talk to him a little bit about the spin on what's happening in Kenosha. They are going after a kid that I think is going to be proven to be acting in self-defense. It is it is a crime. What's going on right now with the mainstream media again?
We'll have more coming up.

This is the Glenn Beck program. I'd just like to testify to you that there lemon cheesecake built par is delicious. Yeah, we were about to come back on the air and it's like you might need to do this because I'm still chewing about how good it is.
These are unbelievable. Their protein bars, they're healthy. This is one hundred and fifty calories.
And it's like a candy bar. And I've talked to the guys and I'm like, what is the deal? This is unlike any protein bar, any health bar I've ever had. And they like because we focus on taste. Yeah, we we make sure that it's healthy, does everything, but we won't release it unless it tastes good. There's no aftertaste. There's not I mean, they are candy bars. My wife lives and dies by these things.

Use a promo code to save ten bucks built bar dotcom promo code. What you're about to hear is the fusion of entertainment and. In that program, I have to tell you, the the GOP convention was transformative in nature in every positive way. It was a convention that was so inclusive and showed showed who I think conservatives really are, didn't tell people, showed people who we really are.
And I just I thought it was it's going to change the GOP and change the course of that political party. I hope for a very long time. One of the guys that stood up is one of the civil rights activists who was at the Woolworth lunch counter sit in in 1960. Very brave man. And he has he marched with us in Birmingham, Alabama, just, what, four years ago or so? I love this guy. He was one of the speakers at the GOP convention, and he had a few words for Joe Biden saying, if you don't vote for me, you ain't black.
We're going to talk to him in 60 seconds.
This is the Glenn Beck program. Sometimes in life, the right choices, hard to make. For example, you know, you find out all the companies that make ice cream are donating to liberal causes.
No, I don't care. OK, they built gulags and I don't care, and they're torturing my children, can I have a little bit of their ice cream anyway?
There are lines you just can't cross when it comes to your phone company.
It really is hard to hard to believe what they are doing with the money that you pay them. Every time you make a phone call, they take some of their profit and they go to help fund abortion with Planned Parenthood.
They they fund radical ideas, anti Second Amendment, First Amendment.
It's crazy what they're doing. There is an alternative and now is the time. You must change your ways.
If you have great phone service now, you're going to get the same phone coverage because everybody's on the same tower.
But what you're going to get when you switch to Patriot Mobile is great service, great coverage, lower prices. And the company that actually is fighting with you for the things that we believe in, call nine seven two Patriot, nine seven two Patriot or go to Patriot Mobile Dotcom. Back when you use the promo code back, you can choose a free month of service or a free phone. Veterans and first responders, you're going to save even more.
So call and switch today. We're a team.
We got to be all on the same page nine seven two Patriot nine seven two Patriot or visit Patriot Mobile Dotcom Beck. Promo Code Beck.
Clarence Henderson, civil rights activist, nineteen sixties Woolworth lunch counter. Sit in. Amazing guy. And I just love him and it's an honor to have you on the phone again. Clarence, how are you.
Good morning Glenn. Long time no see. I know, I know.
I have been thinking about you a lot lately before the GOP convention because you actually were part of these protests in the sixties that mattered. And I know at the time there was a real a lot of people were angry with Martin Luther King because he said peace, you know, we are going to be peaceful, take the beating. And there were a lot of people that didn't want to do that. They wanted to fight back and look where we are now.
I mean, this is Malcolm X, if if we're lucky what's happening on the street.
But it's not usually black people. It seems to be a bunch of white people saying it. They're for black people.
Well, you know, it's amazing, Glenn, because we need to understand that violence begets violence and we have people talking about systemic racism. We have systemic corruption going on in this country. And we need to realize and recognize what's going on with all of our imperfections. We are the greatest country in the world, the light that shines on the hill. And I'm hoping that people will recognize that and find their place in America where they can be successful and help us as a society to be that place that people can feel like they can come to and have the opportunity to meet at the office.
And so what they are doing now is that they're taken away is not that is not a tear down. It's a build up. If it's building a relationship or whatever we have, in the words of Dr. King, unless we learn to live together or perish together as food. And I am very concerned that people are caught up in these movements. And I don't know what kind of movement. It's easier for me to two kinds of movements. One is that generally the movement where we're being oppressed by the King George the third, and then there's the prospect of a movie where we're continually defending our freedoms, such as your radio show you continue to do in there and you get ostracized for it, but you continue to go on and we have to do those kinds of things and to stand up for what is right for ourselves and for our children and grandchildren coming up behind us.
So, Clarence, how do you what would you say to Democrats that are listening to and I think they know it in their heart, who are listening to the press and to the political leaders saying these are peaceful protests. Some of them may have been during the day at the beginning, I think there were lots of them, but they degenerated. And it's it's not even it's I don't think this has anything to do with black people in ethe anymore. This is all about revolution and anarchy.
What do you say to break through to those people that are.
It is. And what we have to realize is that we are a country of laws. We have shown ourselves to be governed by the rule of law and that the rule of man. And so therefore, when these situations come up, we have a judicial system, a court system where we bring these things to the forefront and let it be decided in a court system, not the judicial court system and not the court of public opinion, where we become mob rule and becomes dangerous for everybody if we're not careful.
You have people running around. Everybody says, I'll take the law into my set because nobody's going to help me. For example, when you talk about the police, if they're not there, then what happens, especially in the communities where I lived in New York back in the 60s in Harlem. And even at that time when it's different than now, you know, one of the things that people are doing sort of came up. What do you do?
You call the police because you got people in this country right now that are apprehensive about coming out of their own house and not bothered about it. And I want to participate in any protests or anything like that. They just want to be left alone. But these people here jump in on old folks, whoever gets in their way. I just and I'm still in D.C. right now. And I was at the president's acceptance speech and I saw I didn't see Rand Paul.
They were all around him. We went in a different direction. So we just got to have an acceptance speech not bothering anybody. But all of a sudden they want to come and these people want to come in and destroy all these things that we've worked for in this country and its time. It has to stop at this point. And I felt the powers that be that are not doing anything about it, because when it turns into violence, then there's an order.
We have to stop that. And peaceful protests are one thing. But when you change it over to violence and it has, something has to change. So I am continually going across America talking about what we need to do to to unite ourselves and not divide us there. What's the biggest thing we need to do, Clarence, what is the I mean, you lived at a time where when you stepped up to that that lunch counter in Greensboro, what were the possibilities of what was going to happen to you?
Did you think at the time that the possibilities that I could have come out of in a better position, going to jail and handcuffs, I could have come out of there and a proposition going to the hospital, to the morgue, and I reflected back on it in the movies. Braveheart was that every man dies and I ran. And so the solution for me is that this thing has to be done by we, the people and not by the government.
We cannot continue to allow 535 people to take out three hundred twenty million plus people they should or should not do. It is based on a week when Thomas Junta said that America is an idea in the minds of many people really don't know what that meant. He said that America should always go by the choices that we make and it should be done at the polls that election. Let us decide what kind of country we want to live in. And we have all of these things that people vote for and we have some elected officials that somebody is appointed that wants to come in and change it.
For example, the definition of marriage in North Carolina, 66 percent of the voters decided it would be based on traditional marriage. But some judge, I think, was up in Asheville, Asheville, but it was a case brought before him and he decided it should not be there. And so we in this quagmire where we in right now, so we the people have to come back and start to have meetings. And some of the people sitting in offices right now in the Democratic Party, for example, we are so far removed from reality, they must be removed.
And even as somebody in the Republican Party, the same thing, they need to be voted out and have people come and understand. For example, take a guy like a non political, but you know what's going on in America. You would it would be served better by a person like myself. Are you that really has a handle on what's going on in America and really go and serve the people. So we've got to find those kind of people to their vote and to elect a system and run and serve this country.
And we have to do a better job of vetting our politicians before they get in office because politicians are a dime a dozen. But little surprises. That's what Donald Trump. Yes, I mean, a rough hewn man, but he gets things done.
And I feel as though we saw the side of Donald Trump that nobody wants us to see that side that actually privately. I mean, you could say a lot of things on Twitter and say a lot of things in speeches.
But he obviously cares and obviously has made I mean, the Alice Johnson thing, I mean it the things that he's doing, you don't do unless you actually care, you know, the way he's handled these things.
And I thought the GOP convention showed the Republicans are the conservatives for who they really are through actions. You know, there was this was a unbelievable outreach to the African-American community and it wasn't pandering. Did you feel there was any pandering to anybody at any time in this convention?
Oh, I guess I. I had a chance last night to be Vernon Johnson, the guy that's a Democrat out of Georgia that spoke and said he was going to vote for Donald Trump. Tremendous. Got his eyes opened up to see what the party is doing because I was a Democrat and I've been a Republican. But when my eyes open up and I knew the direction I need to go. And so there was told sincere to there, people caring about each other, wanting to get something.
And it was such a peaceful situation going on there last night. People stand out. Sure, it looked like a mirror and did me back to what America is like. This this week has shown how all people saw it on TV. I saw it. You have seen what America looks like and what this country has been founded on. People strive and become successful people is looking for the opportunities in America. I want to see you see the land that is a formula for success in America.
But most people concentrate on looking at somebody else, comparing rather than competing. Yep. And therefore is a free market capitalistic system of which a lot of Democrats have used. And I'm not talking about socialism. You've got Bernie Sanders is right. I mean, through the free market capitalism. But he's espousing socialism, which leads to communism. And that's but that's not the way that this country works.
I'm so glad to talk to you every time we get a chance to talk. It has been too long. Clarence, thank you so much.
You're quite welcome, Gwen. And I look forward to next time we meet you. Got it.
God bless. Clarence Henderson, civil rights activist, the. In the prominently in the Woolworth lunch counter, sit in the pictures that we all grew up with. All right, let me tell you about our sponsor this half hour. It's American financing. If you're a fiscally responsible person and I know you are, you're looking at 20, 20 and figuring, oh, it's twenty, twenty, twenty one.
I'm not going to be worse, is it? Yeah. Did you see Stutt this morning? The Fed released because they did they they released this new formula and all this new crazy idea about inflation up in Jackson Hole this week. And now they're coming out and saying, yeah, there's going to be some bad inflation coming our way, but we're going to keep the rates down.
And oh, my gosh, now they're admitting that big inflation is on the way. And it is. It is. And this is a big change in approach.
Lets you stay with the house to try to catch. But how can they do that with the economy? That was their job. They say their only job was to keep inflation in check. Now they're inflating it anyway. Freddie and Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, they know what's coming. They're about to start charging a point five percent refinance fee. They've moved that date from September 1st to December 1st. So there's a little more time. But you got you got a call.
American financing right now, if you're fiscally responsible, pay your mortgage, manage your money, save when you refinance, you need to give American financing a call. Right now, American financing eight hundred nine zero six twenty four forty eight hundred nine zero six twenty four forty American financing, dot net American financing and MLS one eight two three three four in the MLS Consumer Access Dawg.
Ten Second Station Idee.
So the press is going crazy for several reasons, but they are it's I mean, I think only Donald Trump could have exposed them this much because they he they went insane.
And so now we see who they really are. In an interview yesterday, Joe Biden tried to make the case that the riots and the looting and the violence in Wisconsin is a result of Donald Trump's America. And I want to quote what he said. These are not images from some imagined Joe Biden's America in the future. These are images from Donald Trump's America today. The violence we're witnessing is happening under Donald Trump, not me. It's getting worse and we know why.
Yeah, we do. And Joe, this is weird.
I mean, I understand why they have to attempt this bit of gymnastics. This isn't Joe Biden's imagine imagination of the future.
This is a look back in the past. This happened in Barack Obama's America with Joe standing at his side. Does anybody remember in twenty fourteen, a little place called Ferguson?
Remember the riots in the streets in Ferguson? Yeah. What did that give birth to? Oh, I remember the Marxist organization Black Lives Matter. You gave birth to this. Your own vice presidential candidate yesterday said in an interview these riots are she didn't use the riot.
She said protests, but riots.
These riots aren't going to stop if Joe Biden wins, nor should they.
They are all in with these people. Yeah, and that's that's really interesting. Of course, this is obviously not the way Trump would want to handle the big cities. He's he's respecting the lines of the federal government's power. And I can't believe it.
Yeah, no, he doesn't. It was the last I mean, you know, because we had very strong conversations off the air in the last year. I've said he has he has proven himself every you know, in these situations. While I might disagree with some of his policies here and there he is. You know, he's holding the line. And I said, but you watch a crisis is coming. And if there's a crisis, this guy will become the biggest FDR.
I'm just that's my last fear. That's the last box that I have to check off.
They've been begging him, begging him to do it, to take control and violate the Constitution. Yeah. And he hasn't done it.
And he has not. And I think he couldn't. I don't think he should. But I think, like, in this idea of like if Donald Trump were king, he would not be he these the Democratic cities would not be run like this. Right. So you can't this this Biden point is B.S. The other thing, too, is the Black Lives Matter thing was interesting in that after George Floyd, it really turned into a even though we were critical of the organization and their conservative critiques about it, but it was generally a unifying concept.
People were like black lives do matter. And there are people saying all lives matter too. But yeah, of course, Black Lives Matter.
And we all agree with the actual sentence, of course, or the phrase Black Lives Matter.
But at the time it went up to about plus twenty five and favorability. The group this is in, I think it's plus twenty eight nationally in in Wisconsin specifically plus twenty five. They released a new poll about Black Lives Matter. This is before Kenosha. So it's not because they're reacting to Kenosha. The new poll came out and they were even went from plus twenty five to zero in two months and they were plus seventy five weren't they.
At one point towards the beginning they had seventy five percent approval. So that's different than plus.
So plus would be like zero is forty eight percent favorability. Forty eight percent unfavorable. That's where it is currently. It was twenty four, they were twenty five points in the positive a couple of months ago. Now it's in the same poll where they're split. Police are plus sixty three. So this is we a lot of times get into these worlds where we let the media control what we feel the countries is, is is really saying they're not saying to fund the policemen.
And and the Republicans were smart to continue to point that out, because if they're going to allow and not denounce the defund the police side of this argument, the riots, and you seen Biden give lip service to it a couple of times recently because he's seeing these poll results. But if they're not going to do that, there's a huge opening here for Republicans to say we're the party that's going to keep the people, the police on the streets to stop your burning your bill.
This is the conversation I wanted to have in twenty sixteen. That's why I wanted Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders to write. Right, because I wanted a clear cut case. We now have a clear cut case, guys. They are going to end capitalism in their own words. They're going to end capitalism as we know it. They are going to defund the police. It's a radical transformation into something we are not or we're going to hold up the American heart and say we don't have to agree on everything.
We don't even have to agree on policies, but we have to agree that this is a good place to live. We've got it pretty sweet. We've got some problems and we can fix them. We're not going to shut each other down. I mean, it's a clear, clear choice. And I think the clearest choice in my lifetime, I don't even think it was this clear between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. This is the clearest choice and I think the last call for America, at least as we know it.
This is the Glenn Beck program, one of the most important things that business owners need to know, no matter what kind of businesses they own, is what the return on investment is going to be, how much money is going out versus how much money is going to come in because of it. I can tell you, if you don't have a detailed view from every single department and if those departments aren't communicating, you have no idea what's going on in your business.
You don't know. And I know it because we couldn't find anything to give us a central dashboard. We couldn't figure out at the place for a long time what's happening. We have no idea. Well, we found NetSuite by Oracle and that has changed everything. Thank God NetSuite is around. It's what I begged for for so long. They will help your departments come together and communicate their numbers in a way you just can't do alone. If you don't know your numbers, you don't know your business.
Over twenty thousand companies trust NetSuite to go faster with confidence. I own two of them. Seven actions businesses need to take now is something that they went and they just talk to all the big, big business people around the country and said, what do you do to restart? You'll get it for free. Just go to NetSuite. Dotcom back. NetSuite dotcom back. Stu, does America on YouTube and podcast today, the awkwardly titled Stu Does Ben Shapiro that's obvious today.
Check out the episode. Still, today is a big day and we haven't mentioned it all week, and we need to today is eight. Twenty eight, twenty eight, twenty eight, ten. We were all together. In Washington, D.C., for Restoring Honor a decade ago, a decade, a decade ago, that's insanity.
And I wonder I wondered if this ever made a difference to anybody.
And I think, you know, what I said on stage on that day is it may not be somewhere in this crowd. Is a young kid, it might be the next George Washington that will remember this day.
Well, one of those young kids, not a young kid anymore. His name is Curtis Houck. He's the managing editor of News Busters. And I didn't know that he was at eight twenty eight until just about five minutes ago. Curtis, welcome to the program.
How are you?
Good to be with you, Glenn, again. Yeah, it is an honor. And yeah, 18 year old Curtis would be absolutely floored if 10 years later to the day where we are.
It's amazing. How did that affect you? Well, I mean, it was just a culmination of, you know, watching you and reading you for so many years. A lot of the things you know about the founders and really what the left has been trying to instill in so many other Americans and trying to do to remake this country. I learned from watching and reading you. And so being able to go to a vet like that and be with, you know, hundreds of thousands of like minded conservatives and not only conservative people who just love this country and care about the Constitution, being able to go with my dad and some of his friends and how cool.
I mean, it just meant the world to me.
Well, Curtis, thank you very much. Thanks for going and thanks for remembering it. It's it's it's meaningful.
All right. News busters. You have been watching the meltdowns of the mainstream media.
So we want to go over the the RNC convention and just get some highlights from you on how bad was the meltdown and what do you think was the best meltdown from the from the mainstream media?
Well, first, I'll say that I think going back to what you've been talking about this morning, which is what a contrast this is allowed us, you know, really between the DNC, the media saying this is Biden's finest hour. He was like a preacher at the pulpit. He was optimistic, holding a fireside chat, whereas in contrast, Donald Trump had no hope, no hope. It was dark and filled with darkness. He had attacks. It was more of the same.
And he just wants to, quote, own the lives. I mean, it was really just absolutely incredible. But my biggest meltdown was actually from before the whole speech happened, MSNBC last night, you know, over the course of two hours leading up to the speech, we're actually saying the president, quote, doesn't care if people, quote, get killed or sick from the coronavirus by attending this event.
I mean, it's just I often tell my colleagues about how the media just empty their historicist trying to figure out, like, how how they can, like, melt down and describe what they're seeing.
But really this week, they definitely earned it. They're getting those pages are well loved.
Do you think, Curtis', that there is a an awakening beyond the conservatives and Republicans, that there is an awakening on the press, especially over the last two weeks of like, oh, Mike, I mean, you're in an Alice in Wonderland world.
Right? And especially because of the fact that the news media are saying what's going on outside on America's streets is not happening. Right. They're saying that they're mocking the president for saying that there's anarchy in the streets. You know, you have going back to. Yeah, looking at Ferguson, what was going on? You know, this goes to the CNN Cairene. So hopefully people saw this very but mostly peaceful protest going on.
They had to do something. They had to do something. This is the third time there has been burning cars in the background and they're talking about a peaceful protest. So this time they just while they're talking about peaceful protests, they just put in the Koran fiery, but mostly peaceful.
I mean I mean, this is like not the onion, not the basilone. Be on overdrive. Like I mean, it is one of those things that you can this can't be real. Oh, yes, it's real.
I saw a great Babylon Bee story came out last night that Babylon Bee just bought their biggest competitor, CNN.
OK, so let me go to the hypocrisy, your favorite hypocrisy moment over an RNC speech. Yeah, and I took a big look at the week and one of my colleagues over news busters has been crunching the numbers about how much time MSNBC has been refusing to carry the speech, really after the news media in totality carried about 90 percent of the DNC. So let's the first night they get thirty three minutes to thirty seven minutes, night three with the vice president, 50 minutes 50.
And we're looking to 50 minutes and we're looking to be well over that across probably closer to an hour, at least for tonight. Once we finish the numbers today.
And they they just skipped it entirely, talked over it. Correct.
They talked over it. And I think going back to one of your other points from earlier this morning about stories and speakers that humanize the president, you know, Carol Meyers talking about her son with Down syndrome, Kayla Mueller's family, Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng. He all of those speeches were not carried by MSNBC. And it's very intentional, you know, with the media, sometimes they're kind of they stumble into their ways. But, you know, and a lot of these instances, they know exactly what they're doing.
This isn't a case of ignorance with the news media, especially this past week.
So how is America going to react to this? Did do you think enough people that were independent or Democrat by by record but are kind of sick of this? Do you think enough people saw the real message? Because the real messages, most of them did not come from the politicians. It came from the real people.
Yeah, I think that's such a great point. And it's people from all over the country that spoke. You really covered Tennessee, Minnesota, everywhere in between and then. Yeah, the news media. And I actually think it is because you're seeing in the polling know you talked about, you know, Black Lives Matter support just cratering. You have CNN admitting that this is showing up and polling. You're seeing the governor of Oregon saying, oh, the violence is bad.
Oh, my gosh, we totally condemn all this. And now people are waking up this morning to see that a US senator and his wife required a barricade of police officers in their bikes to get them to safety. It's like what happened in the 1960s. People turn on their televisions and saw what was going on to peaceful protesters that were marching and sitting at lunch counters. And they're seeing what's going on in these cities and they're seeing the emotion of these people that have lost everything.
And over on the other side, you have the news media that's kind of saying, well, they have insurance, you know? Yeah. I mean, it's just it's because it's not it's not happening to them. There's just no empathy. They talk about the president not having empathy. Oh, yeah. I mean, it is an Alinsky strategy of projecting onto your opponents kind of where you are.
Yeah. Curtis Houck, managing editor of News Busters. What a great what a great day to talk to you, Curtis, on the anniversary of eight twenty eight. Thank you so much. Thank you. You bet. Bye bye.
All right, we are going to correct something else the media is doing just a second right after this, this commercial break. I want to tell you about my pillow.

This is the Glenn Beck program. Welcome to the Glenn Beck program. We have Elijah Schaefer on because yesterday when I was talking to Alija no, it was who was it from The Daily Caller yesterday?
I said, where are the main squares, the mainstream media? Where's ABC, NBC, CNN? Where are they? They're not they're not getting any of this footage of what's really going down. Oh, my. Well, that just popped the head of all of these. They just said we're in a snit last night. All these journalists there were out there.
And all I can say this about us.
Well, really easy. Drew Griffin tweeted, So many of my CNN colleagues are reading this Dodo Birds comments between their live reports in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Come on, Glenn. OK, really, what time was that? Again, Glenn Beck just lies in. His lemmings will believe anything he says, this dishonest type, blah, blah, blah. The truth is to hate those who hate the truth. Literally, every network, every day, every night has been on the ground.
My favorite is from Yemen as Omar Jimenez bro.
I'm literally standing in Kenosha right now, sleep deprived from standing in the protests, violence and fires this night and every night this week, bro, he's the guy on CNN with the Koran underneath him that says fiery but mostly peaceful protests. And you journalists, why are you running Elijah Shafer in The Daily Caller's video?
If you were there, why did you have to run their video?
Would you, I don't know, run your own video. Right. You run your own video. Yeah. Why was Alysa Shafer on the phone with The New York Times to try to help tell them exactly what happened for their story if they were there? Oh, my gosh.
These people are incredible. They're they're they're not showing you the truth. They're not there. Well, let me ask somebody who's there. Elijah Schaffer.
Welcome to the program, Glenn. I am happy to be here. And I'm very delighted to let the world know that Blaze TV and the blaze that reported some of these multi-billion dollar corporations.
Oh, I mean, are they there? Of course they're there. We see them on TV. But where are they?
You know, it's like it's like an absentee parent who's there, but they're not, you know, like they they might be available in the home, but are they raising the kids? They're not. That's exactly how I can describe the corporate media right now. They're present sometimes. But when the actual thing hits the fan, I mean, I don't see their fancy cameras. I don't see they're nice reporters. Their lights aren't on. I mean, where are they?
They're not where the story is actually happening.
Well, let me just let me just say this, Alicia. I think it's that they like you and the blaze so much that they're running our video that you got because they just want to give us a boost.
They thought, you know, we've got great video coverage of this. We were there, we saw it, we captured it.
But you know what? Let's give the let's give those conservatives that are out there trying to cover the truth. Let's give the let's give the credit to them for the video.
I think that's what's happening.
Maybe it's that what's happening is because, you know, we look at the commercial shooter, Culverhouse, the seventeen, you know, there's two interviews that are that are out there that are really viral news. Washington Post, I'm in amongst many other publications, reaching out to me, reaching out to Richie McKennis from The Blaze from Daily Caller. I mean, how many of these news outlets have extensive interviews with Kyle before the shooting? How many of how much of their footage is is being used from the shooting, how many of them have on video, the fires being started or the faces of the people destroying the vehicles?
I mean, how much of this are we really seeing being aired if they have it on footage? I'm not accusing them of not having it if I am on the air.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Like, let me tell you something.
If they do have it, it's worse than we think. If they do have it, you're exactly right. Why aren't they airing their footage? So, I mean, it makes no sense.
So let me ask you one other thing. I've heard that a Rittenhouse does not. He has a public defender. This guy is going to have his lunch eaten if he's just got a public defender like he does now, I think that's changed.
OK, guys. Yeah, one of Rudy Giuliani's attorney has now stepped in.
All right. So now there's there's another thing that I want to check with you. Did you see that the guy who was shot had a warrant out for his arrest? Is that true?
OK, so there's a lot of about a minute. About a minute. So you get to keep it short.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Here's all I'll say. That these people did have criminal backgrounds. No, and I'm not going to I'm not going to specify charges, but what's really interesting is that because they had criminal backgrounds, that if you just took these three people as a sample of the group, it's really interesting that the three people involved had pretty severe charges. Even somebody who had a weapon and who had weapons charges against them probably should not have had that weapon on the on the deal.
I'm going to say that the the charge of rape might be as bad, if not worse than the he had a weapon on him. There's a difference between having a weapon on a man having a weapon and using it. But we'll continue to follow this. But thanks so much for your cute little attempt at coverage, CNN and ABC and all your people, your children.
Hello, America. It's Friday. A lot to go over on this GOP convention week. We begin in 60 seconds.
This is the Glenn Beck program.
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Hey, I feel good after a great show. I want to look good after a great shave. Must be a great walk out of your house every day looking like a million bucks. Old and wrinkly. Right.
Until you have to put that stupid mask on your face so you know, you don't kill Grandpa because you just don't care about people. Oh, my gosh, you're a bad person.
Anyway, the secret to a great shave is, you know, a bunch of silly and useless products. You need to get rid of all that crap. What you really need is the oh so perfect shaving experience, the little bottle of shaved secret. And when I say little bottle, you'll be surprised how little it is because you don't need very much. It's like a travel size. Like let's just say this. You put it in your pocket and TSA is going to let you onto the onto the plane.
OK, so it's a little travel size kind of thing and it lasts forever because you only use three or five drops in a wet hand. You put it into your beard or ladies on your legs and it's amazing. It smells great. Going to replace all of the foams and gels. It's 100 percent natural. It is a proprietary blend of essential oils home and it's made in the USA. Hundred percent money back guarantee you can find it regionally at HCB and Wegmans nationwide, Wal-Mart and Amazon.
Or you can just go right to shave secret dotcom, cut out the middleman, go to shave secret dotcom and use the promo code. Baik, you'll get a 10 percent discount by going to shave secret dotcom and using the promo code back.
Oh my gosh.
So the mainstream media is very, very upset because yesterday, as I told you a few minutes ago, I said they weren't on the ground.
They didn't have any of these. They didn't have any of these videos and they're not doing their job well. They wanted me to know they came out on Twitter. All right, man, we're here.
Look, if you're eating dinner or the early bird special at Denny's, you'll see us on our live reports. It's peaceful during the day. Yeah, it's at night that it gets dicey, dude. Like at two o'clock, three o'clock in the morning.
Well, I've been up. Where where have you been? Where there. Where then how come you don't have any footage of this? Why are you coming to The Blaze and The Daily Caller for the footage? Why are you calling our reporters at The New York Times to ask them what happened if you were there?
Yeah, a big part of this is they show up when they are mostly peaceful protests. Of course, this is known by the protesters, rioters who wait until they leave to start lighting things on fire when everyone is back home in their hotel rooms and they're there comfortably watching their little reruns of their broadcasts. When everyone's walking around being peaceful, people like Elijah are out in the middle in front of the fires and dodging gunfire. Now, even when it's their lighting cars on fire and they're burning in the background of the CNN reporters, they're still saying, oh, it's peaceful, dude.
How do you I mean, what do you have eyes or just a lack of a thesaurus? Because the only word you seem to know is peaceful. It's just not a notable point to say that they're most mostly peaceful.
It's not like if you could be every every serial killer is mostly peaceful in their life times. They have incidents where they kill a bunch of people. Right. You know, I mean, like, it doesn't make any difference. It's peaceful. Charles Manson, I guess most of the time he was a nice guy. Adolf Hitler was painting when he was young. It doesn't mean his life was mostly peaceful. OK, so how many he not? You go through the Nazi party and you'd find probably most of the actual Nazi party members didn't actually kill Jews.
Personally, does that meet does that notable is a notable fact, no, peaceful? No, it's not notable. What you remember you used to make this point.
It's like, well, you know, you could look at the Nazi regime and really compliment their highways. Right. But like, that's not notable. Right, about who they were. I really did. It doesn't matter. Not a notable phrase. The rocket program was great. It's not interesting. The important thing is the over and like when you're talking about, look, we we have hundreds and thousands of protests around the country for the same causes that go perfectly fine, perfectly fine, perfectly fine.
And the other part of this is we also have hundreds of thousands, millions of interactions between police and African-Americans that go perfectly fine. Those are the ones. Would you say that police are mostly peaceful?
I never hear that police. I never hear it. Hundreds of millions of them are actually those mostly peaceful protesters, you know, the ones with a guillotine in front of the White House. I love that. But it was a mostly peaceful gittin. It was OK. It was just stands there most of the time. Most of the time. Usually a cut somebody's head off, but it's mostly peaceful. It's just a sharp knife suspended in the air.
Get over it. Right. It's peaceful. It's not doing anything. All right. So they had that in front of the front of the White House. They were attacking elderly people last night in front of the White House. And then my favorite story, Rand Paul. God bless Rand Paul, man. Pray for the safety of our of our elected officials, pray for safety for really everybody on all sides, on all sides. This thing could spiral into nineteen sixty eight so fast.
It almost did last night.
There were about a hundred members of this angry mob about a block away from the White House, and they just surrounded and attacked Rand Paul. And I think his wife and and here's the thing. Why were they attacking him.
So they were screaming, you know, say her name, justice for Brianna Taylor, which is a fascinating thing, particularly to Rand Paul. Right. Because he wrote The Justice for Brianna Taylor.
That is, if you I mean, couldn't be more wrong.
Could there be a more obvious admission of your own ignorance to be yelling at Rand freaking Paul, the guy who has been talking about no knock warrants since you've heard of him before you before you were born, you knucklehead? He was talking about it while he was doing eye surgery. Right. He said he's a libertarian. He's opposed this the entire time. The Brianna Taylor thing has literally nothing to do with race. If you look at the case, they weren't even shooting at Brianna Taylor.
They were shooting at her boyfriend, who, by the way, actually shot a police officer. I don't blame him for that. By the way. It was it was a terrible incident. It was not his fault. But he had actually fired his gun at the police and hit the police before they fired a bullet. So, like, the idea that this was some racist stalking thing is insanity. It is a perfect example of the libertarian critique of police when you're talking about no knock raids in the middle of the night over a drug offense in the middle of a pandemic.
Why were they there? That that it's there is a legitimate point to be made there. The Black Lives Matter Point has literally nothing to do with the Briana's Taylor case at all. It has nothing to do. It is likely that these officers could not even see Brianna Taylor when they were shooting. They just know they got shot by a bullet. One of them was actually struck by a bullet from a gun and they started firing back in the direction of where the bullet came from.
There's no disagreement about this, by the way. That's exactly what happened. So, yes, no, not your decision to kill Rand Paul on the street.
Yes, he's he's he's your he is probably the biggest ally in America with behead him.
Yes. Dopey. Dopey, probably the biggest ally in America. Right. That one down to solve the actual problem that occurred with Rihanna Taylor, probably the biggest ally in America. You're surrounding him and threatening his life.
This is OK. This is I think I got it. Behead random.
Oh, no, don't. Sorry, I got I got it. Don't behead Rand Paul. It's important. The word don't do important. Make sure that's in front. Right. The words beheading. Don't say another thing. This is important. Order is crucial here. One, learn to protest. You got to do it in that order. It's really hard because a lot of times you to go out and protest and don't learn about this afterward. No, you have to learn first protest after.
What if I learned how to. Protest in school already? No, no, no, no, no, you have to learn about the thing you're protesting. So maybe you're right. This passionate about Taylor, you should read word one about the case. I'll give it to you. Go to Stu. Does the truth about Brianna Taylor had to name the change the naming convention for this particular role because it did not feel it was appropriate? Does the truth about Brianna Taylor look at that.
It is a great case for people who like Radley Balko, who wrote a whole book about the militarization of police. And it's about tactics, not bashing police officers. It's about these tactics authorizing a no knock raid in the middle of the night for a for someone who was even accused of the crime but was believed to be associated with someone who was accused of a crime in the middle of a pandemic, I would just argue is a bad idea. The situation should not have occurred that way.
You could have grabbed Brianna Taylor on her way out of work and talked to her and she probably would have talked to you. The idea that you're just going to bust in in the middle of the night, it's just bad practice. And that's something that I think police have to be very, very careful in utilizing. But that is a totally different point than all cops are racist and we need to go get Rand Paul.
It's insanity. OK, well, I don't know if you can get I mean, that was a very complex rant.
I don't I mean, lots of rules from lots of rules, lots of things to remember.
And you can't do it.
But I we went back with a timeline and, you know, the the mainstream media is like we were there. We're covering all of this. Well, first of all, you don't seem to be relying on the video that you don't have that you had to get from us. Only The New York Times seems to have this halfway, right? MSNBC is the worst, is the worst. They're just denying what you see on tape. It's incredible. But they were all there and they all covered it.
And so I just did we just did a little tick tock here.
I mean, just at eleven fifty five, Elijah Shafer tweeted, breaking news. Someone shot in the head in Kenosha, eleven fifty five PM Levin. Fifty six. ABC News was on it. Whale of a time pod of orcas spotted swimming through the Puget Sound.
I guess they did have reporters. Reporters. OK then. Eleven fifty eight pm. Eleven fifty five. Alija eleven fifty eight pm USA Today. A look at Wednesday's paper pense destress wins in virus fight. Eleven fifty nine CNN. The advantages of incumbency are afforded to any sitting president, but Trump's use of his office has gone well far beyond his predecessors. Eleven fifty nine Moderna vaccine lacks a black lettings and indigenous participants. So CBS News, while somebody's just been shot in the head in Kenosha, remember, they got all the people there is there you have reporters there.
They were worried about the left thinks the left thinks there isn't a Latino in America. That is normal. That goes. Yeah, I like that black thinks thing.
That's only reflected in every poll.
When they asked that question, 12 a.m. New York Times, they are talking about the need and the alarm on the need for protective masks.
PBS NewsHour Mike Mike Pompeo plunged into the heart of the presidential campaign. Reuters President Trump pardoned John Ponder MSNBC. Ben Rhodes on Secretary Pompeii's Speech 2011 Washington Post to Jerry Falwell Scandal Weakened Trump's Evangelical Support 12 16 Associated Press. Now we're approaching half an hour. Hundreds of flights were canceled in South Korea 12 17 NPR covid-19 latest series of disruptions. OK, so OK, so it's a half hour. It's a half hour. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.
It's the graveyard shift.
You know, you got Lenny and he's like, Dad, what time do I send this out?
Maybe maybe everybody was sleeping, you know, in Kenosha. So maybe they didn't know about the shooting in real time. They were on the they were on they just happened to look down. They were loading film in their camera, which they don't use anymore. And they just looked down and they missed all that gunfire. So about forty five minutes after the blaze is posting the shootings, surely they'd pick up the scent. Twelve, forty two am. Almost an hour later, Elijah Schafer poses a threat on Twitter, explaining the circumstances leading up to the shootings.
He's already got analysis and video of leading up to it. See CNN's main concern at the time.

Jacob Blake, the black man who shot multiple times at close range by police in Kenosha, currently Perrini paralyzed from the waist down. So at least an hour and 20 minutes into it, NPR has a story about Sergia.
Yeah, but they they obviously didn't have someone there with the video. No, they did. Oh no. They were all upset at me yesterday for saying they weren't there.
Oh so they were all there SDU they were there but like.
Yeah. Is it valuable if you're there but in your hotel room when all of the bad things are happening, he's listen to you washingtonpost 107.
Trump uses Republican Convention to rewrite coronavirus history. One fifty five now two hours later, Huffington Post thirty two tweets that sum up being single in the middle of a pandemic. You might want to think about reading other tweets, you know what I mean? Maybe checking out other tweets.
Of the twelve media outlets, only three posted any news about the Kenosha shootings overnight. The Washington Post, two hours after Elijah Shafer posted about it, CBS News and Reuters.
I don't know what what do you think to nineteen to thirty seven. That's enough time to watch Elijah's reporting and then go, should we care about this? I mean, it doesn't look good. How can we spin this and then finally post it? You guys weren't on the ground. You may be of on maybe on the ground. Maybe you were sleepy. You know, I felt really bad last night with Donald Trump.
He was going at midnight last night when I mean, that's so unfair. Joe Biden couldn't watch that thing live. He was in bed by four. I mean, you have the early bird special at 3:00 at Denny's and then he's got to go to sleep. I don't know if he saw any of that. That was really unfair of Donald Trump to do. And the news reporters, I mean, if anything happens after 9:00 PM or, God forbid, anything after dark, you know, these are peaceful protests.
Nothing happens after dark.
You're frauds and America knows it, and you know what's so sad, you know it, but you're not man enough or woman enough to admit it, because then you've got to change your behavior on real estate agents.
I trust the housing market been on fire ever since the beginning of the year. A friend of mine bought a house at Yellowstone, what was it, Yellowstone Club and its like and I was looking at them during the pandemic. I was look I went to the websites, they bought this house and I was like, oh my gosh, look at these houses. And they're like six million to twenty five million dollars in the middle of nowhere. And there were lots of them available.
And Tony is like What are you looking at? I'm like, nothing will ever own. And it was crazy. All of them sold out. It's been like four weeks, all of it sold out. People are kind of getting out of the cities for some reason or another.
Anyway, with the riots and covid, if you need to sell your house, you might need to sell it.
Now, maybe it's because you're moving and you're moving across the town or you are moving across the country. You need the right real estate agent for both ends.

Welcome to the Glenn Beck program. It is eight, twenty eight, ten years ago, we were standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial together. If he were there for restoring honor five years ago, we started the Nazarene Fund in Birmingham, Alabama.
Can you believe one hundred thousand Christians saved and moved into safety because of what we did five years ago?
Basically a glorified moving company, very expensive. One by one. I mean, she's probably we could get that done with a U-Haul for half the price. No, no, I don't. That's amazing. That's what I mean. You look back, I think, at your life and say that's probably the best thing you ever did.
They think of. Oh, yeah.
But this has been featured by ABC News. And it's not just you, but I'm saying like it's not just a conservative claim you're making. You have thousands and thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands maybe have been saved from this.
One hundred thousand people have been moved in the last five years because of how many of them died. Tens of thousands.
Clearly, a lot of them. You can, by the way, check out those videos of those events.
They were great. I think I'm going to watch them with my family this weekend. You can find them on the Blaze TV or Mercury One Dog. And while you're there, donate to the Nazarene Fund or any of the other things that we do, especially our education project. We're going to be announcing some things here in the next couple of weeks that I think you're going to be very excited about.
I want to go to Ryan Morrow. He is the director of the Clarion Intelligence Network. We are premiering something tonight on Blaze TV called Covert Cash. What American universities don't want you to know about their foreign funding. It's going to be on Blaze TV this weekend and then on September 1st, I think it is next Tuesday.
It's going national and it'll go on YouTube and a lot of other places. But you'll be able to see it this weekend if you're looking for something that you can watch that is, you know, pretty amazing that nobody else is covering. Lara Logan is involved in all of our friends are involved in this and the Clarion Project as well. Ryan, welcome to the program.
Thanks so much for having me back.
You bet. I premiere this tonight at five o'clock and explain it to the audience because it's we've been talking about schools and universities in the last week. This is been in the press somewhat, but no one seems to be really paying attention. Even by my standards, being absorbed in the topic of extremism and hostile foreign influence operations for so long, this is jaw dropping even for me. But the film Overcash was inspired by a study that myself and Alex Vanness and some other people at Clarium Project were involved in, where we looked at the declared foreign donations to American universities and colleges.
And we put it all together and then we organized it. And as far as I'm aware, that's never been actually done before because we wanted to get some real figures to get an idea of how much foreign financing is coming to our schools and what we found in the first study of just what was publicly declared. Most of it is not. We found over 10 billion dollars flowed from foreign entities to American universities since 2012, the vast majority of it coming from countries and governments that don't like us and are known for their history of foreign propaganda operations on American soil.
And that went to Qatar, Turkey, Russia, all of them.
OK, so our universities are taking this. They're also employing many of these these scientists and professors, you know, and that's a whole different story. But we are now starting to wake up to China. But tell me about Saudi Arabia and Russia.
Right. So if you look at the figures, again, this is just from the first round of the study. Later on, we found a billion dollars that the universities had not publicly declared. So the universities are not declaring most of this funding that's coming in from based on our research. But Qatar, for example, they donated just over one point five billion dollars. Saudi Arabia, six hundred and fifty million dollars. Russia, one hundred million dollars.
And I would emphasize that this is just coming from what's publicly declared. It's not it doesn't include what when you set up a front, if you're want to be really sneaky, that's how you do it. So this is just the amounts that these countries are brazen enough to basically slap us across the face and say, hey, guess what, your door is open and we're just going to do this openly because there's covert stuff going on and then there's the less covert stuff going on.
You know, you point out in the film and talk of a little bit about this, that these schools, these Ivy League schools have set up branches in some of these hostile countries that are toxically illiberal and filled with America, anti-American ideas.
And our universities are end up supporting, you know, misogyny, homophobia, racism, while virtue signalling at the same time.
How do they not see this, right?
Oh, they know about it. I mean, the Department of Education has begun looking into this and so is Congress. And their reports say very blatantly that these schools are going to non free countries and basically accepting the money, begging for the money and giving them unprecedented access to our students and our education system. But in the case of campuses overseas, Couteur has given billions of dollars to schools to set up campuses in their country, which is a spy boss's dream.
And specifically in one case with Northwestern University, Kutter was giving them money to help them expand Al-Jazeera this.
Oh, so they were basically donating to the school and saying, here's a bunch of money. Now bring your students over to Qatar to help us expand the biggest terrorist propaganda network on earth. China is also doing a similar thing where they're giving tons of money, unbelievable amounts of money to our professors in order to come over to China and help them build labs so that they can steal the information. And that's why professors are being arrested for lying about that funding because they're taking the money.
And only now is the government starting to crack down on it. But it's so big, I don't even know if the federal government can crack down on it fully.
There was an interesting line that stuck out to me. It was from a woman who said when I was growing up in Iran, I was forced in school to chant down with America every single day. She said, Now our universities are doing the same thing. That's like the modern version of adolescent rebellion. Now, it's like the cool thing to do among the youth is to say that you are so enlightened, you are so objective that you're willing to bash your own country and rebel against it.
And it's hard for me not to connect that to this issue of foreign funding that's coming in. For example, you mentioned China. According to our latest records, China's donated over one point two billion dollars to university since 2012. Now, maybe I'm too cynical, but I don't think that they care about American students getting the best education. I don't think that we well, we know it's not going to lower tuition. So what is the return on their investment?
It must be pretty big for them to spend that type of money.
Thank you so much for being on with us and thanks for letting us premiere this this documentary.

So a listener of mine, Pam, she said she couldn't sleep unless she lay flat on her back staring up at the ceiling.
Oh, my gosh. Could you do that? Can't do that, no, no hope of that at all. That's like trying to sleep on a plane. Yeah, to it. She said she'd have shooting pains that started on her shoulders and then radiated down her arms, sleeping on her side. Her stomach was out. And she's always been a side sleeper this awful.
She heard me talking about relief factor, skeptical at first. She tried other pain relievers before. None of them help her. She tried it nonetheless. And you know, the rest of the story, a few weeks in, Pam found that she could sleep any way she wanted because the pain was almost completely gone. Pam got her life back by getting her sleep back. And so can you. Relief factor, not a drug, but developed by doctors.
And 70 percent of the people try it. Go on to order more. You can order the three week QuickStart for only nineteen ninety five. What do you have to lose? You don't want to spend the rest of your life wondering what it would be like if you had a solution to your pain. Try it. Relief factor dotcom or call 800 five hundred eighty three eighty four. It's eight hundred five hundred eighty three. Eighty four. It's Relief Factor Dotcom.
This is the Glenn Beck program. This the Glenn Beck program, it's Friday, I just want to leave you with this, the Hollywood crowd.
They I mean, they oh my gosh, they had aneurysms all night last last night.
And it couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.
But they went crazy about Rudy Giuliani, went crazy about Ivanka Trump.
I mean, Ivanka Trump is not a conservative. You know, I think she is I mean, if I had the same role I thought she did in twenty sixteen, which was to play to my friendly voters who prefer largely Democratic policies. Correct. But can get can get on board, you know, to show that he's done things that aren't just for his base, which everyone claims. Right.
And and I think she has I think she and my guess is, is that she has had something to do with the overall message and production of this RNC convention, which I applaud.
I thought it was fantastic, the messages and the images and everything that came out of it. I thought it was real, genuine and and just solid.
I think Republicans have largely used their conventions to basically pitch to their base. Yeah. Which here they did the opposite.
If this was Reagan, this was Reagan. You may not remember those. You might have been too young. But Reagan did this.
He he spoke across party lines and he was like, look, that's not what your party stands for.
You know, it's it's it's almost exactly what America went through in 1980.
And there could be a 1984 kind of landslide. If the president is disciplined, we could be witnessing a landslide. One of the things I just want to go through some of these things. One of the things they were just apoplectic on, Mia Mia Farrow compared it to Jonestown, an adoring cult waiting for Jim Jones to appear and look at how none of them are wearing masks, et cetera, et cetera. Mio Mia.
I just I just I just want to ask, have you been tweeting about the VMAs?
Because New York decided that the celebrities for the VMAs, the Video Music Awards at Radio City, they don't have to you know, they're not going to be subject to the quarantine mandate. They can fly in from wherever, you know, the Ebola hot spots if they want. And they don't have to be quarantined at all, you know, because they're special people.
They're special people.
So I'm just waiting for the Hollywood elites to, you know, to tweet against the special people.
But anyway, so it was Jonestown, the guy, Bradley Whitford, he was on the West Wing. He said it was a desecration of the White House. Was it really? Was it I mean, I'm with you. I don't like the fact that the White House was used and I don't like the fact that that is probably going to set precedence now, but it shouldn't be used.
But it is a covid year. And this was the third choice the president had. He tried to move the convention and the liberal Democrats wouldn't allow him to do it.
So, OK, I'll do it if you come over to my house. It is a it is a covid year. And he did not move it there first. He tried other places. You guys just tried to shut it down. So Rosie O'Donnell, you know, her lovely, lovely self, tweeted the things that I really well, I really can't repeat any of them. But Jim Gaffigan.
Swooped in to defend Joe Biden from claims that he's a socialist, OK, I go with that. I don't think I don't think Joe is a socialist, but he surrounded himself with socialist and his policies now on his his platform are socialist.
To be fair, he's been a longtime Democrat and has persisted basically in the middle of every Democratic movement. So when the party has gone left, he has gone left the party. He's going very left right now.
Right. So anyway, so Gaffigan defended him, said he's not a socialist. And then he said the president's speech was all lies to scare America. And to those who think I'm destroying my career, wake up. If Trump gets elected, the economy will never come back. First of all, I like claim. I really like Jim Gaffigan.
Oh, I love him. I consider him a man. I can say a friend, but friendly and and have spent time with Jim Gaffigan. I have no problem that he does. I know he disagrees with me. I know he does. And I don't care. And you know, if he sees that and he really believes that somebody should go vote the other way, that's fine.
But I do I would like to ask him in a sincere questioning, an honest questioning, what part of Biden's experience shows you he was part of the team that said it will never come back, the economy will not get any better than Barack Obama ever. This is the this the best it's going to get.
Donald Trump came in and it was the best economy we've ever had as a nation and the lowest unemployment rate for I mean, it was really good.
Jim sold a lot of tickets are in the Trump era. Yeah, I know. So I just want to know what part of the Biden economic business building experience makes you say he's going to be better than the guy who just did it, as opposed to the guy who was part of it that couldn't do it?
I just think that honestly, this election season more than ever before is just ruining people. And they just, you know, they're always fighting with each other. Everyone thinks that their opinion is the only one that matters or the only one that's right. And everyone that disagrees with them is the worst person on Earth.
Yeah, I'm not going to I'm not going to go there this time. I'm not going to I'm going to try really hard not to go. Oh. Oh yeah. Yeah.
Because, I mean, like, look, I, you know, I can deal with I have a very high tolerance for nonsense from entertainers, you know. I mean, like, look, I think Jim's totally wrong on a lot of the things he's saying. I can deal. I could still I can still laugh at his Hot Pocket jokes. I'm not going to have a problem with the same thing with these athletes. Like, you know, they can do all sorts of things.
I don't really care because I don't go to them for these things. I can just avoid, you know, caring about them. I don't think about what some what LeBron James thinks about politics. I don't care. I don't care. I'm not going to let them take away something from me that I enjoy just because they're stupid. And that's you know, it's not everyone gets to that point.
You know, Jim is a New Yorker, lives in New York, and it's a different world. I talk to people from New York. It is a different world man. I think Gaffigan is he's one of the more sensible people who's talked out, even though he is liberal, has talked out sensibly about politics when he's touched it normally. And then last night is I mean, look at this era is if people are just they lose it. They lose it.
Look at the media. You know, people who are irrational, halfway decent reporters four, five, six years ago are completely nuts now, completely insane. No one can seem to control themselves anymore. All right. Have a safe weekend.
We'll see you Monday on radio.
