Nancy Pelosi: There is nothing left to cut in the budget

On Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley and called Republicans ‘anti-government ideologues’ looking to shut down the government before declaring there is simply nothing left to cut in the $4-trillion-a-year federal budget.

“Nancy Pelosi, she's always been nuts,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Listen to what Nancy Pelosi said about making more cuts.”

CROWLEY:  President Clinton, President Bush, President Reagan and this president have all negotiated the debt ceiling and given up something for that.  So why now, we can't do this?

PELOSI:  The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make. It’s really important that people understand that.

The cupboards are bare? Really, Nancy, have you seen the federal budget lately?

“She is Old Mother Hubbard. And her cupboards are bare,” Glenn joked. “And it's really important, there is no more cuts. Have they made cuts? Can you tell me what cuts they have made? Seriously, have they made a cut? Can you think of cuts that they made?”

“Well, the sequester was a cut on the increase. So think about that,” Stu said. “What she's talking about is definitely the sequester, which was a cut to increase.

“There's no cuts. I don't think they've cut it,” Glenn responded. “I don't think they've cut anything. Sorry, they've cut defense.”

While Rep. Pelosi can’t possibly fathom finding one cent more to cut from the milti-trillion dollar budget, Pat and Stu managed to find a few programs that we could probably afford to lose.

“For instance, can I tell you about studying pig poop,” Pat asked. “It is critical that we continue the Environmental Protection Agency's program of studying pig poop. $1.2 million.”

“Just $1.2 million, that's a bargain,” Stu said. “What about, you got rattlesnakes going through the forest, okay?  Comes up to a squirrel.  How does it react to that squirrel? We need to know that. But more importantly, what if the squirrel is a robot, okay? So snake through the woods, robot squirrel pops up. What happens? What's the interaction like?”

“There's no robot squirrels,” Glenn interjected.

“Oh, no, there is,” Stu insisted. “Because we built one for $325,000 to monitor how the snake would react to the robot squirrel. It's called Robosquirrel. The National Science Foundation grant was used to create a realistic‑looking robotic squirrel for the purpose of studying how a rattlesnake would react to it.”

“Then the cupcake thing, we've got to find out how the cupcake shops are trending.  Are there more cupcake shops? Or are there fewer,” Pat asked. “I want to know, America wants to know, and the politicians want to know. They've received $2 million just to find out.”

"Well, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. If there are more cupcake places," Glenn asked. "May I make a suggestion? May I make a suggestion? You pay some college kids. And you say, go to the library and look for old phone books. And go through the Yellow Pages from ten years ago. And then go through and do a Google search today and find out how many cupcake stores there were ten years ago and how many cupcake stores there are now.”

“That's not going to cost $2 million,” Stu observed.

“What kind of crappy study on cupcakes did you think we were going to do,” Pat joked.

This situation would be hilariously funny, if it weren’t so painfully pathetic.

“This is what happens with America,” Stu concluded. “Like you start off with a critique of a horrible comment by a Democrat, and you just end up talking about cupcakes because it's so frustrating. You get distracted so easily.”

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."
