Where are the jobs, Mr. President? Doc Thompson explains why progressive policies have destroyed America

On radio this morning, TheBlaze Radio Network’s Doc Thompson filled in for Glenn and excoriated the Obama Administration for its inability to do anything to solve the nation’s jobs problem. Doc asked one simple question: Five years later, where are the jobs, Mr. President? He proceeded to run through nearly a century of progressive policies that have landed us in the stymied economic situation we now find ourselves in.

“Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs? Mr. President, where are the jobs? That's all you need to ask. Where are the jobs? Where are they? How is the economy? How is that working out for us,” Doc asked. “It's five years later, where are the jobs? Where are the jobs? You've been president for five years and you've had, despite what you've said, most of your agenda passed. So where are the jobs? Where are the jobs, Mr. President? Where are the J-O-B-S? Where are they?”

While Democrats in Congress pull all-nighters to discuss environmental concerns, gay marriage, and amnesty, Americans are losing their jobs, losing their businesses, and struggling to get by.

So where are all the jobs President Obama promises? They certainly are not in the United States. Why? Because of progressive policies.

“Do you know where the jobs are? Everywhere else. America stopped being a leader because of progressive ideas across the board years ago. It didn't start with Obama. It started decades ago… Our high water mark was after World War II. Soldiers returned, and the economy started booming because people were buying houses and shiny cars out of Detroit… People had to make those things, and the people who made those things made money,” Doc explained. “And since that happened, with the exception of a few spikes, we've been marching to our economic death ever since. Slowly, steadily, a drum beat a day, marching to our economic death because we buy what we can't afford. We ratchet up debt as a group… As a country we continue to overspend for what we don't have and we hold nobody responsible.”

The manufacturing towns and cities that once made America great have dried up. The only people who remain are those who are unable to sell their homes and move out. The formula for a healthy country includes a strong military, a strong financial structure, and strong manufacturing sector. We have lost, to some degree, all three of those prongs.

“Drive through those rust bet cities: Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, Milwaukee. The only reason people still exist in those towns is because they can't sell their homes… That's it. It breaks my heart to see the towns I love like that. I'm a rust belt guy. I grew up on the Great Lakes. My parents are blue-collar workers. I appreciate that. I appreciate anybody who works hard for a living,” Doc said. “Now I drive through these towns and they're empty. This is the elephant in the room. The jobs are elsewhere because of those progressive policies that have sent them overseas. Oh, sure, the president wants to say we're giving them tax breaks for sending them overseas. And yes, companies get tax breaks. There's corporate welfare. Corporate welfare shouldn't exist… But because of those progressive policies, they've sent those jobs overseas.”

Ultimately, Doc believes the American people should be asking one question of President Obama every single today because the lie has gone on far too long.

“Where are the jobs, Mr. President? This is what you should be asking the president each and every day, and Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner alike. Where are the jobs,” Doc concluded. “They've lied to you and they've manipulated you and you continue to elect them. As they march closer and closer to the midterm election, that's where you need to: Where are the jobs?”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
