The List of Federal Agencies on Trump's 'Buh Bye' List

Glenn listed on radio today many of the federal agencies on the chopping block under President Trump's proposed budget. A few notables include the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts, the little-known Overseas Private Investment Corporation and --- Glenn's personal favorite --- The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

A list of some of the federal agencies that are going to be eliminated under Trump. I can't imagine this happening. But here are the agencies.

STU: This is his proposed budget. Congress hasn't even looked at this yet.

GLENN: Yeah. The African Development Foundation. Why are we developing Africa? We should be developing --

STU: A lot of the foreign aid stuff is in here.

GLENN: Yeah. The Appalachian Regional Commission. What does this commission do in Appalachia?

The Chemical Safety Board. That's the only one with the name that I thought, "Maybe we should look at that one."

The Corporation for National and Community Service. Buh-bye. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

STU: Hmm.

PAT: Buh-bye.

GLENN: Buh-bye. A, there should be no doubt -- Sesame Street makes more money than any other show.

PAT: Right. Big Bird is big business. And he always has been.

GLENN: Always has been. Every kid has Sesame Street toys. There's no reason why we're paying for that.

PAT: Yeah, that can self-fund.

GLENN: And now in the world where NPR is the number one podcasts. They're number one in many, many cities on radio.

PAT: They're certainly top five.

GLENN: Their -- their television shows are now being sold all around the world. Amazon, you know, Hulu, Netflix. Carrying all of these shows. And they're partnering with the BBC and everything else. There is no reason -- they make enough money. There is no reason why we are funding them still. None whatsoever.

The Denali Commission, which I'm sure people in Alaska are happy about. The Delta Regional Authority. The Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Again, the library thing we probably might want to -- I mean, there's not a lot of money in the library thing. And I'd hate to see libraries go, but I don't know what they do. The Interamerican Foundation.

STU: We actually have this thing called the internet now, which is pretty amazing. You can actually see all this material on these little boxes.

GLENN: No, I know. I know. I'd like to see what the Library Foundation does. Like, for instance, I'm totally school with the Library of Congress. Totally cool with that.

STU: Yes, that's true.

GLENN: The US Trade and Development Agency. The Legal Services Corporation. The National Endowment for the Arts.

STU: Ah, yes. Thank you.

PAT: That needs to go.

GLENN: That would be --

JEFFY: What about people who paint?

GLENN: I paint. Nobody is giving me a dime! I paint.

JEFFY: But --

PAT: Yeah, but think of how beautiful your paintings could be if you received half a million dollars.

JEFFY: Thank you. They're not as near as they could be.

STU: Wouldn't you be better?

PAT: Wouldn't you be better? Seriously, you would.

STU: You would be a better painter. That's for sure.

GLENN: I would be. Maybe I should apply.

The National Endowment for the Arts. The National Endowment for the Humanities. Oh. The Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation. The Northern Border Regional Commission. The Overseas Private Investment Corporation.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That has "private" and "overseas" in the name. What the hell is this?

JEFFY: I know.

GLENN: The United States Institute of Peace. Oh. The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness. And my favorite: The Woodrow International Center for Scholars.

JEFFY: Nice. Buh-bye.

GLENN: Hang on just a -- turn on John's mic.

JOHN: Clearly, that was an outreach to you, Glenn.

GLENN: It was. That was the olive branch, and I'll take that olive branch. I am so pro-Trump right now.

Bill O’Reilly: Here's the ONE piece of 'GOOD NEWS' from Biden’s Afghanistan disaster

President Joe Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan has been criticized from both sides of the political aisle as an utter disaster. But Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to share the one piece of "good news" that he believes has come from this failure: "Biden's DONE."

"There is good news in this story," O'Reilly stated. "The good news is Biden's done. All right, even though he's going to be there physically, in the White House, he's finished. His credibility is shot. He's not coming back. He doesn't have the energy to come back, or the creativity to come back, or the vision to come back," he added.

"From the beginning of this incredible screwup in Afghanistan, the administration under Joe Biden has not done one thing that has worked. Keep that in mind. Nothing has worked. Because they didn't plan it. There wasn't anybody in charge who really knew the country. And so, when you have that level of incompetence, you're going to go down. Now, every American knows that. And the ones that do play slight attention, know the [southern] border is a catastrophe. They know the woke culture is a catastrophe. They know the progressive left, the socialists, are a catastrophe. And you add it up, and what has the man done well?"

Bill and Glenn went on to discuss the absurdity of President Biden's threat to hunt down the ISIS-K terrorists following the attacks that killed and wounded U.S. service members and Afghan civilians in Kabul on Thursday.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

How We Can Stop the Next Great Catastrophe | Niall Ferguson | Ep 115

The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 made the world all too familiar with catastrophe, and the fall of Afghanistan in 2021 seems to be continuing that trend. So how do we make sense of all this chaos and disaster? Glenn has a conversation with historian and professor Niall Ferguson, whose latest book, "DOOM: The Politics of Catastrophe," argues that there's a human element to every catastrophe, from an earthquake to an economic collapse. Niall and Glenn break down some of today's biggest disasters: why COVID-19 is our "domestic Vietnam," why we're already in a cold war with China, the internet and cryptocurrency's effects on society, and why a massive course correction could soon come in the form of Donald Trump's return. And Niall gives a historian's prediction on how future generations will look back on this divisive era.

WATCH: Glenn in Middle East: ‘Biden Admin Lying to Us’ on Afghanistan Evacuation

From an undisclosed location in a country near Afghanistan, Glenn Beck details the latest on the frantic evacuation efforts of American citizens, allies, and persecuted Christians as the Biden administration's failures have left him thinking, "I've never been embarrassed to be an American before."

Glenn interviews former Force Recon Marine, Chad Robichaux, whose Mighty Oaks Foundation has rescued over 2,000 people in just a few days.

David Barton, board member for The Nazarene Fund, joins Glenn on the ground with a prediction: The U.S. State Department "clowns" will be humiliated by private sector efforts by this time tomorrow. And he also says there is evidence of malicious intent from a few members in the State Department.

Jason Buttrill, Afghanistan war veteran and head researcher for Glenn Beck, joins on the ground to give the latest intelligence update he received from sources at the Kabul airport gates. And he explains why this has led him to predict that a gigantic hostage situation with the Taliban could soon unfold. Glenn and Jason also reveal the dangerous extraction process for locals in Afghanistan.

This woman has SEEN how bad Afghanistan is under Taliban — and knows WHAT CAUSED IT

It feels like we are still in the dark about what is actually going on in Afghanistan. Thankfully, journalist and author Hollie McKay joins Glenn to share her eyewitness experience of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and what locals have told her about the corruption that allowed it to happen. She watched as the Taliban rolled into town and saw for herself how swiftly they took power: "I haven't seen anything that could be more of a mess than what we're seeing right now." And she warns Glenn that this is only the beginning of what women in the nation will now face...
