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.”

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"
