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 does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
