Glenn Beck: McCain killer - The economy


Stu is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

STU: Yes, Glenn, political geek update for the day. As you said we're not going to be really talking about politics in the traditional way but, hey, let's do it for a minute because there's a lot of stuff out there anyway with the stupid market meltdown screwing everything up if you actually like John McCain.

GLENN: Market is down 445 points right now. Just opened up. 445 points. We're almost -- Stu, was it yesterday that I said we're going to go into -- we're almost at 9,000 -- it was day before, we're almost at 9,000. Then yesterday we're going to hit into the 8,000s. We're going to hit in the 7,000s today.

STU: It's amazing. As we were talking about in the break with the Insiders, Jim Cramer said on Monday that this market could go to 8300. It could actually go down 20%, go to 8300 and people were saying, oh, my God. Yeah, he was talking about a year from then and people were calling him a pessimist. It's now at 8100. It's five days later.

GLENN: I will tell you everybody was calling me a pessimist. Remember, were you in on the pool, Stu, on the Dow pool?

STU: No.

GLENN: No? Okay. Over at Time-Warner then, everybody, we were making a Dow pool and I was the pessimist and I said, Dow 7500 is going to be the bottom? I'm moving Dow 5,000, seriously.

STU: Unbelievable.

GLENN: 7500 -- we're now 500 points away from, Glenn -- two weeks, three weeks ago, "Glenn, you're crazy. 7500, the whole world would melt down at 7500. We're 500 points away from that."

STU: The good light on this is that I didn't participate in that pool. So there is one good investment I've made this year.

GLENN: There you go.

STU: Not doing that. So anyway, as far as the way it's going with politics, it's killing the McCain campaign right now. Every time this happens, it gets worse and worse for the McCain campaign if you want to look at it politically. There is a new poll out from West Virginia that has Obama up by 8. I mean, that could be easily an outlier, probably is. But still things are moving in that direction and that is not a positive. Rasmussen, you remember McCain pulled out of Michigan. A new poll out has him down by 16 in Michigan now. And as we talked about yesterday, there's 40 states that are probably going to stay in the same direction, 10 of which are going to really decide this election. McCain -- unfortunately they are all red states. McCain basically needs to defend about 84% of the electoral votes in those 10 states which include a bunch that he is down significantly. So again these things turn around really quickly. Oh, my God, we're down 665 points right now in the Dow in case you are interested in that.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, this is just a disaster. We could close the stock market today.

STU: It's very possible.

GLENN: They could shut the stock market down today.

STU: What a disaster.

GLENN: To do that, that has to fall 1200 points, by the way.

STU: Is it really that much? Jeez.

GLENN: It's 1200 points and they will shut it down.

STU: These are fun times. I love Friday shows. Real quick, every day on the electoral update, I call two states with 100% accuracy. Never have I been proven wrong when I've done this, in the history of the electoral update, never once have I called a state wrong. We have two --

GLENN: You have done it yesterday was the first day.

STU: Glenn, don't include that information. So we have two more states to call.

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program election center, projected winner.

STU: We can now project Connecticut to go to Barack Obama and Oklahoma to go to John McCain. So our total electoral vote count now is 10 to 10.

GLENN: All right, thank you very much, Stu, and there's our update for the day.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
