Glenn Beck: The 2,000 pages that will destroy America


Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina

GLENN: Well, we have a ton to share with you tonight. I don't want you to miss it and then I'm going to be in, am I in South Carolina today? Am I in both South Carolina and North Carolina? Do you know? I never know. I love them both and I love the sweet tea. I know that Lindsey Graham is thrilled to have me tonight. At a book signing. We will see you on the road this weekend.

GLENN: Hello and welcome from high above times square. I'm Glenn Beck. The third most listened show in all of America. Stu, where am I tonight? Am I in South Carolina only or North Carolina as well?

STU: You've got one Carolina covered, the south one. 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.. In Columbia and then 9:00 to 10:00 p.m.. In Charleston.

GLENN: So I will see you in South Carolina. Is Jim DeMint on the phone? Senator, how are you, sir?

DEMINT: How are you?

GLENN: Very good. How are things?

DEMINT: Welcome to South Carolina in advance. I'm excited you are headed that way.

GLENN: Are you going to be in South Carolina? You are not sending Lindsey Graham my way, are you?

DEMINT: I think we are going to have votes today. I'm going to fly to Charleston tomorrow for a ground breaking for Boeing and then I may have to fly back up here for health care vote on Saturday. That's still kind of up in the air but hopefully I will be in Charleston with you on Friday.

GLENN: You have a bowling ground breaking?

DEMINT: Boeing.

STU: Things are so bad we have Senators running back home to break ground on bowling alleys.

DEMINT: I would do it.

GLENN: A year from now we are all going to be thrilling at the ground breaking ceremonies ever bowling alleys.

DEMINT: No, Boeing is moving an assembly line to Charleston. We are a great right to work state and a lot of companies are seeing that you can compete globally if you produce in South Carolina.

GLENN: So, Senator, really, we're talking about a 2,000 page bill.

DEMINT: Right.

GLENN: On the program earlier today if this passes this is the tipping point. If this passes, the American economy as you know it and I don't know how long it will take, but this will destroy it. Do you think that's overstating?

DEMINT: No, I don't. I really said all along I think this is the big battle for the president but it is also an even


bigger battle for our country and principles we believe in, and if we give into this, if we accept this idea that you can pass this massive overhaul of health care in a couple of days it is just -- they think Americans are stupid. I'm just so hopeful Americans stand up and prove them wrong.

GLENN: What do we do? I've been saying there is like Landry, Nelson, a few people on the fence still that I said if you are in those districts can you get those, there are six Senators, I believe, if you are in those districts, you need to call and say I'm telling you I will spend my last dime campaigning against you when you come up for reelection.

DEMINT: We also need to make sure that these folks know that they are going to vote to proceed to this bill saying they want to advance the debate. The debate is over. It is about government-run health care, cutting Medicare. It is about raising taxes. Adding to the cost of Medicaid for state. That's not going to change and every one of them know it and if they vote to proceed to this bill they need to be held accountable for passing the bill.

GLENN: Have you talked to Joe Lieberman?

DEMINT: No, I haven't. He is a man of integrity but I'm afraid on this one he is not being completely honest and he says he is going to vote to advance the debate but he knows the debate is over. He knows we are not going to change a government-run plan or stop taking money from Medicare.


He knows that and all of the members of the Senate know that so anybody who thinks they can pull it over on the American people needs to know that we are on to them.

GLENN: Senator, is it going to pass?

DEMINT: I think they are going to get the 60 votes. Every Democrat in the Senate is going to vote to proceed to it. Whether or not they will get the final 60 votes to close out all of the debate.

GLENN: Do you believe Harry Reid will actually not use the nuclear option?

DEMINT: He may not have to but the nuclear option is not going to work for the whole bill because a lot of provisions don't fit into technically what you are supposed to be able to do but frankly they are changing the rules on so many fronts now and using so much smoking mirrors that I just hope there is outrage across our country.

GLENN: There is. Senator, there is, and, you know, Senator, how long have we known each other, four years, five? A long time.

DEMINT: Four or five years and we've only met I guess in person this year.

GLENN: Yes, but you and I ever since you've been on this program do you remember four or five years ago I said you guys have got to stop disenfranchising people and clean up the corruption and start telling people the straight truth and I think we were


talking about the immigration bill and I said you've got people in your own party that are lying and Americans know it and it is not going to last long. We're at the tipping point. Do you feel that?

DEMINT: I think we are on the edge of a cliff. I mean if you look at where we are with our spending, our debt, the government take-overs, there is so much of our economy now health care I just came from a meeting where they are trying to reregulate the whole financial and credit industry. You've got cap in trades sitting here ready to go. There is no end to what they are trying to do.

GLENN: I said I don't even know if I have said this on the air yet. I've never seen politicians act in their -- without their own survival interests at stake. You know? They won't politically act if it goes against their survival. But this administration is acting, is doing things now that you are not going to be able to politically survive because the lies are so big and when these things start to kick in American will have an awakening and realize oh, my gosh what has happened? I have never seen anybody plan so short-term because this is going to become apparent within the next 12, maximum 18 months. What is their plan to survive the wrath of the people? In front of every consideration you have to put they think Americans are stupid.

That's a big part of it. The other part is they think if they pass it now by next November that most Americans will see that life goes on, not much has changed, and they will forget about it, and they won't think it is that big of a deal. I don't think that is true. I think this is a tipping point for Americans. With their outrage about Washington in general, but the Democrats believe that they can get away with this. They also think some of the moderates can vote against the final bill and still say, and still survive but these are the ones that are going to help pass it by giving them the 60 votes. How much of the tax do you even know yet? How much of the tax is going to be instituted now? I know none of the benefits start until 2014, but how much are we going to see of the dark side of this right away?

DEMINT: For four years it is going to start very soon next year, the new taxes, just the cost of business and individuals we're going to have four years of that without any benefits.

GLENN: Then let me go back to that question. You say they think that they are going to pass this and people will just forget about it. You are now going to be taxing them without the benefit at the end to be able to say, yeah, but we have health care. They are just going to be taxed for four years. America, I mean it may be dumb, parts of America may be dumb. There are probably a good 20 percent, maybe 10 percent of America that are just dumb as a box of rocks, but the majority of America is not dumb, especially when you hit them in the pocketbook. How do they survive?

DEMINT: I think every American is going to figure it out. You're going to see a whole political realignment. A lot of folks already who are Democrat and voted for Obama who are saying this is not what I signed up for and the question is are the Republicans going to be there to receive them with a clear truth of where we need to go from here? I hope they are. But we just need outrage and people standing up right now. My hope is to stop this bill and somehow to get one or two Democrats to say I'm not walking over this cliff with the rest of the Democrats. But it is a big fight for America. It is for everything that we believe in and for our future. We cannot have this go through.

GLENN: I appreciate it, Senator, thank you so much. Jim DeMint.


 

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
