Glenn Beck: Fed up


Congressman Culberson of Texas

GLENN: Let's go to Congressman Culberson. He is from Texas and he has the information on the election being stolen and also I want to talk to him a little bit about, you know, the spending in Washington. Congressman, how are you, sir?

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: Good morning, Glenn, it's great to be with you.

GLENN: Can I -- I want to get to the ACORN thing here and what congress and Nancy Pelosi said she was going to do and have more stimulus packages. I have to ask you, sir, what in the name of God are we doing with our currency? We are spending money like there's no tomorrow.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: Glenn, it is terrifying. We in this bailout bill which I voted against twice, my core conservative instincts have never failed me, we've created -- literally we've given the secretary of the treasury the power of the king and King Henry is now free to just essentially do whatever he wants. He's got $700 billion between King Henry and the Federal Reserve prompting vast amounts of cash into the banking system which as far as I can tell the banks are burying the money in the backyard. You are right. They are loading up our kids' future generations are --

GLENN: Congressman, congressman, I talked to a guy -- in fact, I talked to several people this weekend. One of the guys is -- I referred to as my deep throat. He has been in the room with Bernanke and Paulson and everybody else and he has seen all of this stuff. He talked to me over the weekend and he said, "Glenn, everybody I know is reading about the Weimar Republic. He said, the money that is being pumped in is staggering and I don't know how we'll ever pull that money back." He said, we're all reading the Weimar Republic. That's frightening, Congressman.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: It is. And when I first learned about David Walker, the comptroller, the auditor of the U.S. began talking about this years ago, Glenn, on the danger to the country of running up the $60 trillion-plus of unfunded liability, I began carrying around in my wallet, and I have it here now and we need to be sure to get you one as you're one of my heroes, a $50 billion bank note from Zimbabwe, like the Weimar Republic, absolutely.

GLENN: Yeah. And Congressman, I mean, please go to Washington today and talk to them about, again the Treasury is talking about buying into these banks for what is rumored to be at this point a rumor, at $1.8 trillion, to go in and bail these banks out and buy into these banks. This is, A, socialism; and B, where are we getting the $1.8 trillion.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: By selling debt on the international bond market, selling T-bills most of which are bought by the Chinese or Middle Eastern sovereign wealth funds and because the bill says we can bail out foreign banks, that is true statement that we are borrowing -- excuse me. The taxpayers are borrowing money from Chinese and Middle Eastern banks to bail out Chinese and Middle Eastern banks and we are nationalizing, socializing the banking system following the French and British model. And then also don't forget, Glenn, that the bill, the entire thrust of this debate which was dropped on us with no notice and he admits he's known about it for a year. The entire debate, Glenn, was that the purpose of the bill was to buy up the toxic debt.

Now, the bill -- he can do whatever he wants under the bill, but the focus was, hey, guys, you've got to vote for this because we have to buy up this toxic debt.

GLENN: Is it true --

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: Nationalize --

GLENN: I'm sorry. Is it true that people were told in your position that there would be martial law if, as one of the consequences if this didn't happen?

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: I don't remember that but we were told it was a disaster. We were told it was epic, we're at the cliff and we have to buy up these toxic assets. So all these guys that voted for the bill -- and again I voted against it twice, two of the best no votes I ever cast. But these guys were told this has to be done, it's an emergency, we're going to buy up the toxic debt. It was not -- may have discussed somewhere, somehow, but they were not told that they were going to nationalize the banks. This is literally switching, pivoting off of -- you know, after "Give me the $700 billion, we're going to buy up toxic debt," this weekend Paulson says, no, no, we're not going to do that; we're going to do something else. So all these guys that walked the plank, these Republicans that voted for the bill and other folks that voted for the bill are now being told, you know, your vote didn't leave me anything, we're just going to do something totally different.

GLENN: Unbelievable. So now let's talk about ACORN. What is happening in Houston? There has been a couple of arrests in Houston and this is happening all across the country. Is there -- can we even trust this election, that there won't be massive voter fraud?

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: There is going to be voter fraud. We don't know how massive it is but no question, ACORN and other organizations like them are going to be a big part of it because they have pled guilty. I mean, ACORN has literally pled guilty to false -- to fraudulent voter registration. And in Houston we discovered there's about 4,000 dead people on the voter rolls here. It's going on around the country. We're the only nation I think on the face of the Earth that doesn't have a citizenship list, a citizenship roll that you can just check the database against voter rolls, and ACORN has a long history of this, Glenn. And, you know, that's particularly outrageous is that the mortgage bailout, the Freddie and Fannie Mae bailout bill which was done this August which I also voted against because that nationalized the mortgage industry, that bill, Barney Frank voted language in that bill this summer which hard wires $420 of a $100,000 mortgage to ACORN, La Raza and other organizations like --

GLENN: That's an outrage. Why didn't the American people know? That's an absolute outrage.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: And it is forever. It bypass -- I'm on the appropriations committee. It bypasses appropriations, bypasses the congress, it's in your closing documents. This from day forward we will all be paying 4.2% basis fee of $420 for every $100,000 mortgage in your closing paper will have papers. You'll have a new little line in there, a new fee that we're going to all pay to go straight to these affordable housing funds which the states then hard wire to La Raza, ACORN, groups like that.

GLENN: Congressman, what the hell has happened to our country? All of a sudden we are a -- we are marching towards Marxism. We are marching to a place that this -- congressman, you know it and I know it. You are from Texas. This ain't gonna hold. This is not going to last.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: No, it's very scary and I've had a lot of fellow Texans tell me maybe we didn't make such a good decision back in 1845, you know? Maybe we should have stuck it out as the Republic of Texas and it's very scary. It's very scary and it has happened so rapidly, it just takes your breath away that we not only are marching, we are already socialized the mortgage industry. We've already nationalized the banking system. We are becoming France and in Texas we done want to be France.

GLENN: So what does the average person do, Congressman? We have spoken out. You I'm sure you saw it with John McCain over the weekend. People are pissed off. They are saying, I want my country back!

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: All of us need to not only register, turn out and vote, demand that candidates, quite frankly we need to adhere I think as Republicans, tuned demand that your election people are going to stick to the Constitution, they are going to essentially follow -- I call myself a Jeffersonian Republican. If we just stick to the core principles, they have always worked. Mr. Jefferson, Glenn -- and remember this is so true. Jefferson always said if we follow core Republican principles, the knot will always untie itself. We've got all the tools we need to solve this and every other problem we've got. It's in the Constitution. You stick to the Tenth Amendment. You get this out of the hands of Washington. Trust individual Americans to make the right decisions for the right reasons and trust their good sense and their good hearts and shut down whole sectors of the government. We need frankly a revolution at the ballot box in electing frankly -- and what's the best term for it? Libertarian Republicans. We need people that are going to believe and be committed to individual liberty and the Constitution because if we don't, you know, the country, it's very frightening, the debt, the deficit, the Weimar Republic days may not be too far away with this debt that we are inheriting, the $13 trillion. We just ran out of digits on the national debt clock. I'm sure you saw that.

GLENN: I did.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: But remember this is the greatest country, we live in the greatest country in the history of the world, the infinite resourcefulness of this country. No matter how bleak it gets, we've got to remember we've pulled out of worse problems before and we can do this. Remember we have a revolution every two years. It's this November 4th. We've got to every single one of us that cares about this get out and vote.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Congressman. We'll talk again.

CONGRESSMAN CULBERSON: Thank you.

GLENN: Boy, coming from a libertarian Republican. That's what you need to be voting for. Boy, you could say that again. It's time for the libertarians to really start taking a hold, choking the bat snot out of those votes in congress.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
