Why is Paul Ryan easy to defend?

On GBTV Monday night, Glenn took a look at all the criticisms being thrown at Romney's pick VP Paul Ryan and reached one very clear conclusion: Paul Ryan is an easy nominee to defend. While many are jumping to label him as "extreme" in order to scare people into voting for four more years of progressivism, the truth is that the "extreme" nature of his stance on policy is just his willingness to tell the truth about the problems facing America and the solutions.

"Ryan's is the first budget proposal that actually deals seriously with coming economic Armageddon we are facing," Glenn said. "Instead of making whimsical promises of a 'green economy' saving the day, or believing that we need to spend more to reduce the deficit - as Joe Bidenhas said - Ryan's plan actually addresses bloated government agencies and reduces spending by more than $5 trillion over 10 years."

Ryan has also come under fire as "the end of Medicare as we know it."

"Ryan's plan does not destroy Medicare. But doing nothing will destroy it. And certainly stealing $700 billion from it to spend on different Obamacare functions will too," Glenn said.

Glenn explained that while Medicare currently deems which services are covered and what price the government will pay for coverage, Ryan's plan puts control back in control of the market and the consumer by determining the total amount of money for beneficiaries to spend on their own private insurance.

When tested, the Ryan approach has actually been more successful.

"The Ryan approach actually reduced spending by nearly 10% in a single year, while still providing seniors with the same comprehensive insurance coverage," Glenn explained.

The biggest danger to Medicare is Obama, who is doing nothing to prevent the upcoming entitlement train wreck.

Glenn continued into the attacks on Ryan that he wants to take away birth control and women's rights. This comes from his support of the Sanctity of Human Rights Act, which would have defined human life as beginning at conception. There was no mention of going after birth control at all - that's all fear mongering and lies.

"Here is why they are really on the attack - because there's more to Ryan than just his budget plan. He's young, he's bright, and he can defend his positions extremely well. He's already gone toe to toe with Geithner, Biden, and Obama himself and come out shining every time," Glenn said.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
