Glenn Beck: We Surround Them - Thrift


We Surround Them-The Unveiling


March 13th on FOX News 5pm ET

GLENN: You said to me or one of my researchers last week that you thought the President saying -- you know, giving hope now was absolutely irresponsible. Why?

ZIMMERMANN: Well, not so much irresponsible. I mean, anybody in government, it's their job to try and maintain confidence in government and that has nothing to do with Democrat or Republican.

GLENN: Right, right.

ZIMMERMANN: That's just the nature of government to try and maintain some hope for the future.

GLENN: George Bush was doing the same thing.

ZIMMERMANN: What I think is irresponsible is not being hopeful but encouraging people to spend when they really need to save, when the only way out of this is to get people to replenish their savings, rebuild their cash position. What brings an economy out of depression is not increasing spending and debt but lowering debt. Raising cash and letting prices fall back to levels that are affordable. That's the only real basis for a springboard up out of a severe economic contraction like is currently unfolding.

GLENN: Walter, I said probably a year and a half ago when I pulled my money out of the stock market and I just battened down the hatches, and then there was a time where I just, I did everything that my -- you know, that our thinking tells us to do is un-American. You know, you've got to participate, you've got to put money in, you've got to buy the stocks and everything else. And what I finally came to was someone has to retain wealth to rebuild the country.

ZIMMERMANN: Absolutely.

GLENN: So people being responsible and getting into cash, getting into paying down their debt and being responsible is actually an extraordinarily patriotic thing to do.

ZIMMERMANN: Absolutely. It's not un-American at all. That's how this country has succeeded where others have failed is being responsible, taking responsibility for one's own life and not depending upon other organizations and governments to bail one out. There's absolutely nothing un-American about being responsible.

GLENN: Is it realistic when the President said we just have to stop, we have to stop these mortgages from failing now and then if we can just stop this, we can get people to lend again and things will be moving?

ZIMMERMANN: Well, see, the problem there is if you have some money and you're thinking of buying a house and you notice that housing prices just dropped another 15 to 20%, you know, in your area, there's the expression, you know, catch a falling knife.

GLENN: Yeah.

ZIMMERMANN: Trying to pick a bottom. People are going to want to wait and see, well, how far down is this going to go. And what deflation is really, it's a buyer's strike, say I'm not going to buy; I'm going to save. And the problem is that's what you need to get the basis for a recovery. Prices need to get cheap enough, again, to be affordable. And you don't get there by trying to prop up failing mortgages taken out by people who couldn't afford them in the first place. You need prices to become more affordable. However painful that is, that's going to happen whether the government tries to get in the way of it or not because that's the basis of a sustained recovery: Low prices and people have rebuilt their savings.

GLENN: Walter Zimmermann from ICAP, Vice President of ICAP. Thank you, sir, we'll talk again.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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."
