Toledo: U.N. Approved



GLENN: I don't mean to trash Toledo, and I'm not trashing Toledo. I'm just saying the things that need to be said because it's not just Toledo. It's all of these cities all across America. And you know what? It is happening in our country, not just the cities. Our industrial base is being eroded. It's being shipped overseas. Why? Because we now have the highest corporate tax rate in all of the world. We have higher taxes than France. How is that possible?

So think of yourself as a business person. Why would you go do business where your taxes are so high? Why would you do it? Why would you do it when your unions have so much control? Why would you do it where your healthcare and your retirement funds, you can't make that money? You can't pay for this stuff. Why would you put your business in this country when you can go to India? Why would you do it? If you're looking at it as a businessman who's a globalist, there's only so much that companies can be expected to do because they do have to answer to the bottom line.

Now, why in your wildest dreams would you jack up this tax rates in cities like Philadelphia, cities like Toledo, Ohio? Why would you do that and expect to have people move back in? They're not going to do it. As much as politicians want to think we're stupid, we're not stupid.

So what's the big plan here in Toledo, Ohio? Let me just give you -- what is this guy's name? Carlton? Carlton Finkbeiner. I mean, it's like a cartoon character running a city. Carlton Finkbeiner. This is the guy, by the way, who is actually on a Trivial Pursuit card because he was the guy who said, "Yeah, George, why don't we have dead people move up by the airport." So the question on Trivial Pursuit is, "Who's the dope that said, hey, let's have dead people move out by the airport because people who have ears, you know, they don't like the airport so much." "Who is Carlton Finkbeiner?" Yes, congratulations, you're a winner. Here are some other things he said. By the way, our affiliate, WSPD was told they couldn't attend the press conferences anymore of the mayor. I never heard that. We are -- I mean, why not just start flying the red flag? When did we turn into a country where the mayor can say, "By the way, you, you speak poorly of me; you can't come anymore. No soup for you."

Well, the reason why he didn't want, you know, WSPD -- I'm guessing. By the way, they won the lawsuit, right? They won? They can attend. I would imagine it's because they were the ones that were exposing things like this. First of all, let's play, I believe the dental hygiene cut. I've never had a mayor of a town that is in as much trouble as Toledo, Ohio give me dental hygiene tips, but Carlton decided to. Here it is.

FINKBEINER: If you do a very simple thing that doesn't even require a bead of sweat to be dropped, if you floss daily, you will add four years to your life.

GLENN: I want to be a dentist, okay? That's good, that's good, that's good, that's good. Big empty buildings here downtown. I mean, I got the no bleeding gums, but how about the big, you know, buildings that are empty downtown? What do you say we work on that one a little bit?

What's the next cut? Go ahead and play the next cut.

FINKBEINER: I think Bob Rhein bold would be happy to tell you about how bills are paid, but I actually do not know how bills are paid in the City of Toledo.

GLENN: He do not know how any bills are paid in Toledo. That would be -- I'm just a safety tip, Toledo voters. That would be one that I would look for in a mayor. That would be one qualification that I would say, "Let me see your resume. Do you or do not know how to pay bills in the City of Toledo?" I'm just sayin'.

And then, of course, here is the crux of the problem, and in city after city after city, and quite frankly this is exactly the Democratic and currently the Republican plan for the United States of America. Just extrapolate this when you hear the word "Flowers," think of healthcare. Listen to the plan to bring more business and more things down to the City of Toledo.

FINKBEINER: New infrastructure that is bright, that is clean, unflawed with flowers, flowering shrubs, things that look bright and fresh and colorful say welcome and we want a foot. And that includes banners and signage.

GLENN: That's great. That is great. Are we putting this up on -- are we putting the town of Toledo up for sale? Because it sounds like curb appeal to me. You know what I mean? If we could just, you know, let's throw some paint up on the -- somebody will buy it, you know. Let's flip the city. What is the name of that show?

DAN: Flip this house.

GLENN: It's like he's the host of Flip this City. Who are we selling it to? Madison, Wisconsin? What is that? I don't know. Detroit might like a slightly safer place to live. I mean, this is incredible. Well, it's beautiful. The flowers are incredible. Just, I mean, there aren't any cops around, but the flowers are beautiful, especially this time of year. And I see the big sign over the highway that says Toledo pride, and I think to myself, man, I'm proud of all of the businesses that have fled from this city. Boy, there's nothing. I was feeling kind of blue looking at the skyline noticing, gosh, there's nobody working in those buildings anymore. But then I saw the sign next to the flowers that says Toledo pride, and I feel so much better. My gosh, what are you thinking?


There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
