'Crumbs'? Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Nancy Pelosi Rip $1,000 Bonuses

Would $1,000 make a difference in your life?

Most of America would probably say yes, but Democratic leaders are claiming that bonuses of as much as $1,000 are still just a “crumb” that won’t go far.

On today’s show, Glenn and Stu listened to some startling quotes from former Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, criticizing the GOP tax reform bill.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has also slammed the bonuses corporations are giving to their employees after the tax bill passed, calling them “crumbs” compared to what the “fat cats” get.

“Frankly, if you look at the bonuses, which I haven’t heard of a corporate bonus more than $1,000 so far,” Wasserman Schultz said. “Which by the way is taxed, so it’s not $1,000. … I’m not sure that $1,000 (which is taxed, taxable) goes very far for almost anyone.”

So … is she also saying the government taxes every day Americans too much? What a concept.

GLENN: So let's go to Nancy Pelosi on how meaningless trickle-down economics really is, when your company gives you a bonus of $1,000 or a raise. Here's Nancy Pelosi.

VOICE: In a way where everyone benefits.

STU: Deeper voice than I thought.

NANCY: So here's the thing, there's a cartoon that I just love. There's a middle -- a little mousetrap. So a little piece of cheese on there. And there's a mouse. That's called the middle class. And they give you this little crumb. And around it, there's fat cats. They look more like elephants, but anyway, around there. And that's the thing. We get this little thing, and we get this big bonanza. You get the crumb, we get the banquet.

GLENN: So you get the -- so there's fat cats surrounding this little mousetrap, and they've just put a little crumb. But they're going to eat you. They get the bonanza. Is that the way you view 1,000-dollar bonus?

STU: If you were to get $1,000 right now, what does that mean to you? Is it meaningless? Is it a crumb? Is it nothing?

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

STU: Is it too small to make a difference for anyone, as Debbie Wasserman Schultz said.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I have a truck here that I drive every day. And it is really bouncy. Because I don't put stuff in the back. You know, I drive it to and from work most of the time.

STU: Because you're a poser, right?

GLENN: I'm a poser. You're in Texas. So, anyway --

STU: You have a truck, but you don't use it as a truck. you're posing as if you're a Texan, when you're not is basically what you were saying.

GLENN: I didn't say I was a Texan. I said I lived --

STU: People have to view you as if you would have a truck, though you don't use it as a truck. So therefore you're posing as someone who actually needs a truck. And that was just all admitted to by you.

GLENN: I like trucks. I have a farm where I use trucks, just not this one here. This one, when it's, you know, a few years old will go to the farm and just get destroyed. So I have a truck.

Can I move on?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: All right. So it's really -- the suspension on it is a truck.

STU: It's not built to be a luxury car.

GLENN: Correct. So for $2,000, they said, you can -- you know, most people here, they just have the suspension change. You know, and that way it rides a little softer.

I -- I turn down the suspension, because it's $2,000 to make my ride a little smoother. I can handle it. $2,000.

STU: That's a lot of money.

GLENN: That's a lot of money.

STU: For really anybody.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You know, you can go on a vacation. You can -- you can -- I mean, we were just talking about the washing machines I think it was last hour. You know, that's a washing machine, right? It's a big deal. $1,000 is a lot of money.

GLENN: A really big deal.

STU: Yeah. It's a Christmas. You know, for your kids. If you have a bunch of kids, it's a whole Christmas. It's a big deal.

GLENN: Not to Democrats. They think it's a crumb. They think it's a scam. And especially after the government takes taxes out of that bonus. That's their freaking quote.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
