Sorry Nancy Pelosi, Apple's record-shattering buyback program is proof positive tax breaks work

Nancy Pelosi, please report to your bomb shelter --- I REPEAT! --- Nancy Pelosi, please report to your bomb shelter. Armageddon is not looming. NAY, it has arrived! One of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, also known as the Apple company, brings us messages of our demise. Listen on if you dare, BUT YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Apple has announced a record-shattering buyback program. When it’s all said and done, they will have paid over $100 billion to their shareholders. In the first quarter of this year alone, Apple has paid shareholders $23.5 billion. That exceeds the value of the majority of the companies in the S&P 500 index.

THE HORROR! And as if all that death and destruction weren't enough... THERE’S MORE!

Throughout the March quarter, Apple has paid over $3.2 billion in dividends, and they have plans to boost those payments up another 16 percent going forward. And the hits just keep on coming for Apple investors. I know, I know... If you have stock in Apple, this is just too much to bear. If it would help ease your suffering, I’ll be the sacrificial lamb and take your shares off you. It’s the least I can do.

Yes, the end is truly close. Apple has also announced the construction of a new mega-campus, and they’re looking at adding over 20,000 new jobs. Over the next 5 years, they’ll add $350 billion to the US economy.

In dire times such as these, it’s always a good idea to look back and reflect on how we got here. What was that final act that caused waves of cash to come raining down on us like flaming meteorites of destruction? Well, it turns out Nancy Pelosi was right. This is all due... TO THE TAX CUTS! Tim Cook and Apple have even admitted to it.

Having a job and getting lots of money might sound painful, but WE WILL endure.

Wanna know what the LOW TAX apocalypse looks like? Allow me to quote Cook in an interview he gave talking about the recent tax cuts, but I must warn you, it’s so scary it sounds as if it were pulled straight from the scariest parts of the book of Revelation:

There are two parts of the tax bill, there's a corporate piece and an individual piece. I do believe the corporate tax side will result in JOB CREATION AND A FASTER GROWING ECONOMY.

Wait, wait, wait... More jobs and a faster-growing economy?! This is worse than we thought!!

Armageddon has truly arrived, but fear not, we’ll figure out a way through it. Having a job and getting lots of money might sound painful, but WE WILL endure. And don’t forget... I’m taking the hit for a good part of this. I’ll post instructions on how you can transfer your Apple shares over to me. It’s my great burden to bear.

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
