2012 Depression

Another candidate threw their name in the hat today, but it doesn't help that the current frontrunners all seem kind of...bad. Romney is talking about global warming, Palin has another controversy, Pawlenty flirted with Cap & Trade as governor, Newt Gingrich was interesting in 1994, Rick Santorum may not have the funding. Is Obama beatable? Maybe.

The guys started off with Romney, who said, "I believe the world's getting warmer. I can't prove that, but I believe basically what I read is that the world is getting warmer. No. 2, I believe the humans are contributing to that. I don't know how much our contribution is to that because I know there have been periods of greater heat and warmth past."

Glenn said, "Three years ago, I think it was three or four years ago when we were writing one of the books I said that the world is getting warmer. You have to look at the thermometer. Is the world getting warmer? Yes or no. Now, does man contribute to that? I don't know. Should we be responsible? Yeah. We should take care of the planet. We should do what we can do burn clean energy, to do the things that we have to do to take care of the planet. Yes. Is this what Mitt Romney is saying or not? I have no idea."

" Do you have to go any farther than Romneycare? No, you don't. We've been trying to say, well, yeah, it's going to be hard for him and then he does this dumb thing over the weekend. Wake up! Either you're a conservative now or you're not. Which is it, Mitt? Which is it? And he's still walking that fine line," Pat said.

Just five minutes into the radio, Glenn was begging someone to name a good candidate. "Because I might just take some hemp and start fashioning a rope to hang myself. Name them," Glenn joked.

Pawlenty?

"His name kind of sound -- it reminds me of polenta which I like, you know. My wife makes a mean polenta. So, I could go for Tim Polenta. I would be, like, Okay, that sound good. Is he going to give us food, yummy from the oven? Tuscany sounds good. So, yeah, I can go for that but then it also sounds like placenta and that's not good. So, I'm back to where I was at the beginning. He could be either good or bad and I don't know which one," Glenn joked.

Gingrich?

"I had this weird vision this weekend that Newt Gingrich was this election's John McCain where he's, like -- he's a big name and then completely invisible for, like, six months and then all of the sudden -," Stu said.

Bachmann?

Glenn thinks the media will tear her apart and we'll all be stuck defending her rather than hearing her debating the issues. "You think what they do to Sarah Palin is bad? Oh, my gosh. Wait until Michelle Bachmann wins in Iowa. Wait until she wins in Iowa," he said.

Before this goes any further, all of these candidates should declare with 'certitude' they don't have any pictures of themselves in their underwear.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
