Ho Ho NOOOO! Union forces Twinkies out of business

Congratulations, unions! After deciding to strike instead of taking an 8% pay cut, 100% of Hostess' employees will be taking a 100% pay cut. That's right, the unthinkable is happening -- Hostess, the maker of the American classic treats like Ho Ho’s and Twinkies, is going out of business.

Glenn jokingly called it the "saddest news of the day."

"Twinkies are gone," he said sorrowfully this morning. "The golden sponge cake with creamy filling, snack classic. The reason why I bring this up, right after the oil spill, is because I believe a lot of this is petrochemical-based."

It's understandable why the employees at Hostess would be upset. There was an 8% pay cut headed their way. But what's better an 8% pay cut or a 100% pay cut?

"Let's say you're pissed off about the 8% pay cut and, you know, who wouldn't be.  But you'd rather have the job.  So you at least keep the job with the 8% pay cut until you can find something else that you're happy with," Pat suggested. "You certainly wouldn't want to be out of a job completely and making zero dollars.  I mean, you know, think about that.  If you're working at Hostess and you're making $50,000 a year, an 8% pay cut is what?  You'd be making 47 then?  So instead of making $47,000 a year rather than 50, you'd rather make zero dollars a year? How does that makes sense in anyone's world?"

Glenn believes that the unions, more specifically: the union leaders, are pushing for unrest.

" The unions want joblessness now.  They needed to have it look like there were lots of jobs but now it works to the advantage of the president to show how bad the economy is going and to have more joblessness.  It works to the advantage because it creates unrest. It creates a need for a savior — a need for big government to bail people out," he explained.

He added, "I'm convinced they want the fiscal cliff.  It was their idea.  It was their idea.  You're not negotiating.  I have no problem negotiating and compromising on things.  I won't compromise my value, but compromise is important.  But you don't compromise with people who are suicidal, and you don't compromise with people who are not honest brokers.  You need an honest broker at the table.  Hostess was not negotiating with an honest broker.  An honest broker says, "Look, we want you to be in business.  We want you to be in business.  We know you've gone bankrupt a couple of times.  We want you to be in business because it's good for our people.  We have 18,500 families."  Think of that.  18,500 families.  We want you to be in business.  So let's negotiate.  Now come on.  Really, there's nothing else you can do?  There's nothing else we can do.  We're bankrupt.  You don't let somebody go out of business like that.  If you're an honest broker?  They're not honest brokers."

The tone of show took a sharp turn when Glenn and Pat began discussing the actual Hostess products that were about to be lost from the shelves.

"We can't let this go out of business," Glenn exclaimed, before eating a Twinkie.

Glenn then revealed he was possibly holding on to some of the last Hostess products in the Dallas area. So, of course, they put them where they would be kept safe: the Liberty Safe.

All joking aside, Glenn did emphasize that it really was a sad day.

"Wonder Bread gone, Twinkies gone.  I mean, that's a really big deal," he told listeners.

Rest in peace Hostess, America will miss you...

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
