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?”

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
