'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.

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
