Bush Warns Against `Too Much' Government in Markets

GLENN: Is anybody else really kind of pissed off that George Bush warns that there might be too much government in the markets?

STU: Oh, I saw that speech last night -- or yesterday, Glenn.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I don't know about you, but I had to go in for a blood transfusion. I lost a bucket of blood right out of my eyes.

STU: And you know what? It was a great speech. It was everything that we liked about him but the problem is he's not doing any of those things.

GLENN: I know. He can talk a good game -- well, no, he really can't even do that.

STU: Because it seems like one of those things, Glenn, that you sit here and these people can't really believe the things we elected them on because when it comes down to it, they don't -- when it comes down to the clutch, they go to socialism.

GLENN: Look, here's what I really believe is happening. I really think that our government -- and we're only going to know this a year from this coming Christmas. By this time next year, these things will either start to pass and you'll be able to see these things clearly for what they are, or it will all be cleared up and everything will be sunshine and lollipops and, you know, you can say, Glenn, you're so stupid. And I'd be glad to say, "Yep, I was." But a year from now we're going to start to see how bad trouble we are in and what the effects are of everything that is going on. And I believe that a year from now this country will not resemble what we are now. We are going to be in real financial jeopardy. We're not going to be talking about, "Hey, we're not in a recession -- yes, we are -- no, we're not." 1979? We're going to see it in a whole different way a year from this coming Christmas, and I think the people at the very high end know it. I mean, I have enough people who are in the room with these people. I have enough people that talk to me off the record that play in these circles, and they all know. And I think what's happened is the big players are saying, "Okay, what do we do? No way out, no way out, no way out." So they made the decision: Do we let this thing slam into the side of the mountain and all of a sudden you wake up tomorrow and unemployment is at 15%, or do we unwind this thing slowly and hope that enough people will start to wake up and go, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, and prepare and start to live sensibly and start to be able to be a little more on their own. And I think what they've done is these politicians are such spineless weasels that they have decided, "Okay, we're going to do that." And you could make a case even to me, if I could sit down with Paulson and Bernanke and everybody else and I would say, "Okay, really, off the record what's the deal," and I was the President of the United States, you could make a case to me that if it was really going to unspiral and you're going to have to -- Mr. President, we're going to have to start all over again, you know, the Constitution will be left intact but we're going to have to start all over again but this we believe is the way to cause the least amount of pain because people will be able to adjust, see it coming and then prepare. You can make that case, and I may make the same kind of decisions that Bush is making now. I think I'd leave a few more breadcrumbs but he's in a no-win situation because the President of the United States, if he comes out and says, hey, by the way, everything's fine -- panic, food storage -- it's all going to be great -- probably chaos in a year -- the whole thing falls apart. So what is he going to do? I think these people have made a decision, I think the good ones have made the decision to help people prepare. I think the bad ones have made the decision, I'm getting mine and I'm going to put myself in a position to where I survive and I see the writing on the wall and it's moving towards a global economy, it's moving towards a global kind of governance and I think those big, big -- all those people that are too big to fail, I think those upper levels are moving away from America and into a global community. And unfortunately if we're not left with anything down here, we're not going to have any choice up there. And I don't think there's any star chambers or, you know, people getting together: "So Wilfred, what have you done today?" "I bring you the flesh of more Americans." "Excellent, Wilfred." I don't think that's happening. I think that is just greedy people combined with arrogant people, people who are like, we're the United States of America, we'll always have... arrogance, "We've got so many redundant systems. The dollar, the dollar will always lead the world." Yes, I remember another phrase. It was something like, "We are the British empire. We will always rule the seas." And in ten years after Great Britain and the -- I don't even know what it's called, the secretary of the Navy over in England, being Winston Churchill, within ten years they didn't rule the seas. So don't get so arrogant. And then I think just people who are just so hooked on cakes and circuses.

Has anybody watched, like, regular television lately? I mean, I swear to you I live in a different world. I don't watch television really all that much anymore. I watch The Office, which is fabulous, watch The Office and maybe a couple of other shows, but that's pretty much it. I get my news from radio, a billion newspapers and television, and television, cable television. Gosh, there's one network that I think is -- oh, I remember -- Fox News. And so I rarely watch, like, The Today Show. Have you seen that? They are all -- you know what the news is? "What kind of dog is Barack Obama's family going to have? Let's vote for a dog." You've got to be kidding me, right? The dog he's going to have? That's the news? I mean, the other problem of this is that people are watching the circus and they're having a little cake. "Yep, I got some cake." Funny dog, a funny dog in an outfit (laughing). That combination is deadly. That's the combination quite honestly that our founding fathers warned us about. And once, once the people who are paying attention, you, once you can really know the facts, once you dedicate yourself to go, "Uh-oh, uh-oh, we really are in trouble," you're going to be able to wake enough of the cakes and circuses people up and the ones who are like, "We will always rule the world," you'll be able to wake enough of those -- not all of them, not by any stretch of the imagination. And those people are going to be able to point to the greedy people and they are also going to be able to wake enough up that there will be something to salvage from the plane if, indeed, it does slam into the side of the mountain.

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."
