Glenn: Paul Ryan pick shows Romney serious about fixing economy, shrinking government

Returning from a week off on vacation, Glenn quickly dove into the biggest news of the past week: Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan to be his running mate as he prepares to ramp up his campaign for the White House!

“Mitt Romney has picked a solid, smart conservative for his vice-presidential running mate,” Glenn said.

“This guy was selected because of his budget credibility. This to me signals that Mitt Romney is serious about fixing the economy, serious about fixing the budget, serious about cutting the size of Federal Government. That is tremendous news, tremendous news.”

Glenn praised the choice over that of rumored contenders Condoleezza Rice and Tim Pawlenty, both of whom have less-than-stellar conservative credentials.

While many are heralding Paul Ryan for his budget plan and policy stances, he has also been praised for championing his faith in public. He is on the record as being firmly pro-life, and in his announcement speech he declared “our rights come from nature and God, not from government.”

Ryan and Romney have started to make media and campaign stops, granting their first interview to 60 Minutes’s Bob Schieffer. In the interview, Ryan showed he was able to keep the conversation firmly where it belongs, on the failure of the Obama presidency, rather than on any cheap diversions:

SCHIEFFER: You said yesterday -- I'm going to quote you, Mr. Ryan -- America is a place where if you work hard and play by the rules, you can get ahead. But the fact is a lot of people don't think that's true anymore. They don't think the rules are fair. They think corporations and rich people are getting all these breaks and they're getting stuck with paying the bills. They see some of the wealthiest paying the lowest tax rates. How are you going to fix that?

RYAN: What I see is a new amount of crony capitalism and corporate welfare which both parties have been engaged in but the President has brought this to a whole new level, where President Obama is picking winners and losers based on connections, paced on fads like Solyndra and basically giving handouts to businesses, giving preferences to the tax code. We want to get Washington out of the business of being winners and losers. We want entrepreneurs to have the barriers removed from in front of them so that people can work hard and succeed. We want to turn the American idea back up. We want a system of upward mobility and what we think we need to do is bring fairness back to the system by giving government bureaucracy and political clout out of the system. Those are the kinds of reforms we want.

SCHIEFFER: Doesn't fairness dictate that the wealthiest people should not be paying the lowest taxes, because that's what's happening many times.

GOVERNOR ROMNEY: Fairness dictates that the highest income people should by the greatest share of taxes and they do and the commitment that I've made is we will not have the top income earners in this country pay a smaller share of the tax burden. The highest income people will continue to pay the largest share of the tax burden and middle income taxpayers under my plan get a break. Their taxes come down.

“Not a bad start, not a bad start before the campaign has really even started,” Glenn said.

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.
