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.

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
