Glenn Beck - Barney Frank: 'increase spending'


What are you going to do with all the money the Democrats will be giving away? Well Stu and Barney have an idea, the Glenn Beck Awwwww Yeah T-shirt, available exclusively from the Glenn Beck Studio Store...

GLENN: But the good news is there's more bailout dollars coming. So we've got that going for us. I want to play something from Barney Frank. This is when he was asked about, you know, should we cut taxes, should we raise taxes, should we be spending more? This is what he says.

VOICE: A lot of things to pay for here and this second stimulus is being talked about at $300 billion. If, in fact, we were to see something like that move forward, are you going to encourage Senator Obama and Senator McCain to change their tax and spending plans in order to pay for all this?

FRANK: Well, I do think in this case, let me say my encouraging will probably have more impact on Senator Obama than Senator McCain.

VOICE: Do you want to encourage him to pull his spending plans?

FRANK: Well, I think at this point there needs to be a focus on an immediate increase in spending and I think this is a time when --

GLENN: Stop, stop. Did he just say what I thought he said? That there has to be an immediate increase in spending? Who in their right mind goes home and says when your whole world is crumbling down and you've got no more money left? You go into your house and say, hey, honey, honey, honey, we're about to lose the house, the car and I just lost my job and I think we're in real trouble; let's go to the mall! I mean, who does that? Honey, honey, I know visa and MasterCard and the banks are calling and we're just racked up all the way to the hilt with debt but look who's got a Diner's Card! No, no. No, no, he went on.

FRANK: Well, I think at this point there needs to be a focus on an immediate increase in spending and I think this is the time when deficit fear has to take a second seat.

GLENN: Stop. I think deficit fear needs to take a second seat. Hey, Stu, deficits aren't bad. Democrats now telling us deficits aren't bad.

STU: That's shocking, Glenn. I know that Halloween is close.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And I have -- we're building a haunted house by our house just with people scaring people about the deficit.

GLENN: Oh, I know.

STU: Because I --

GLENN: It's David Walker. I got this kid dressed up as David Walker all the time. It's funny.

STU: Who would be scared about the deficit in a time like this.

GLENN: No, nobody would be scared of the deficit. Look, look, let's just break this down because I mean, to hell with common sense. Let's just break this down and let's just be real for a second. You know if you've lost your job or you're going through a real financial crunch, the last thing you worry about is crippling debt. You know what I mean? That's the last thing you worry about. Oh, debt, schmebt. I think, quite honestly I think our grandparents who lived through the Great Depression would beat anybody who's saying these things, I think they would beat them to death with Nerf shovels, I really do. And that would be tough because they're Nerf shovels. Just beat them to death with a shovel. How could you possibly think that when you're facing these things, debt needs to take a back seat? It's not like -- you know, we're at the top of the debt ceiling. It's not like debt's a new idea. "Hey, you know what? We're going to get through this. Let's just put this on our credit card." It's not like that. This is like the government defaults on debt. There's a -- we're talking, do you remember the outrage of the $700 billion spending package? Remember that? "Oh, my gosh, $700 billion, but that's just so much." This is half! This is half of that spending package and everybody's like....

If I may just point out one thing. The key phrase you're going to hear for the next 18 months is, "Yes, but... that's nothing compared to what we've already done. That's nothing to the compared to the $700 billion. That's nothing compared to the $300 billion. Well, this is just a fraction of just the spending packages that we've already done." You watch. That's coming. That's going to be the mantra.

Did Barney Frank say anything else?

FRANK: I do think this is the time for a very important dose of changenism. Yes, I believe --

GLENN: Stop, stop. What did he say? It's time for a very big dose of changelism? Changism? What. Wait a minute. Stu?

STU: Was that a word or a phrase?

GLENN: I think it's time for a very high dose of changelism. I think it's changism, changelism?

STU: That's like change by vandalism. Like it's like, it kind of --

GLENN: Which is so very appropriate, isn't it? It really is. Change by vandalism. "You're going to change (making spray painting noises)." Put a big C on his chest in spray paint. Stop. Come on, we need somebody -- freak jury, what is he saying here? We need a big dose of changelism.

STU: Can we get that word isolated here, Dan? We need to figure out what that is. Because it's probably something brilliant if it came from Barney Frank, I'm sure.

GLENN: What a dope. Massachusetts, we're about to kick you out of the union.

STU: Well, see, the thing is you can't kick Massachusetts out of the union. We have to talk about this, because you have to maybe kick Western Pennsylvania out of the union first because if you're going to elect a guy who not only calls our troops murderers and is completely wrong but then also calls his own constituents racist and rednecks, then we might need to eject you over to, I don't know, whatever country.

GLENN: Changelism and then give me a little bit of -- give me changelism, then a little Murphy.

FRANK: Dose of changelism.

GLENN: We need a heavy dose of changenism. What the hell is changenism? You know what, get Barney Frank's office on. Get Barney Frank's office on the phone. I want a definition of changenism. He said we need a heavy dose of changenism. I need to know what it is.

STU: All right. Let me check that.

GLENN: Hang on. Is there more?

FRANK: Changelism. I think there should be heavy tax increases. I think there are very rich people down there who we can tax at a pointed down the road and recover some of this money.

GLENN: That's unbelievable. Just unbelievable. Okay. So big spending coming our way. Did you notice he didn't talk -- he didn't even address the tax cuts. Nowhere in there -- I mean, sorry, not tax cuts. Spending cuts. "Yes, and I think we can go down the road, I'm hoping we can maybe cut back on some of our spending... we can tax the bat snot out of some of these rich people. That's the kind of changenism that we need. That's the kind of changenism I've been hoping for. I don't know about you. It's the heavy dose of changenism that I've been looking for.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
