Glenn agrees with Frank and Feinstein?

STU: I mean, you're definitely -- any goodwill you had yesterday you were starting to ruin with agreeing with Dianne Feinstein and Barney Frank, but --

GLENN: I'm not doing that willingly. I don't know what Dianne Feinstein's reason for saying that -- what's his name, Burris?

STU: Burris.

GLENN: Burris should be seated, she's probably doing it for some political reason. I'm saying it because, is there a scandal with him? Is there something that he's done wrong? Has it been illegal the way he's been seated? The answer is no. Seat the man, period. That's just what should be done. And Democrats should be saying it and Republicans should be saying it. I don't care if it's good, bad or indifferent for the party. Seat the man, period.

So I find myself strangely in agreeance with Dianne Feinstein. And then I read this story from Barney Frank, and this one, whew. He's pushing now "Say on pay." Legislation which would force companies to hold a nonbinding shareholder vote on executive compensation. "Who the hell are you" is what I first thought. Government is now going to tell people exactly how they run their companies. This is what I've been saying. We're moving down the road away from capitalism. We're slowly -- well, not now. We're in a full-fledged run -- down this road. At first politicians only wanted to limit pay of executives, you know, from companies that took out federal bailout money. Now they want a nonbinding vote. How long before Barney Frank says, "You know what I like is bondage. We could just bind these people up like crazy." How long? Barney Frank says if executives do well, they should get a bonus. If they don't do well, they shouldn't get a bonus. Perhaps they have to surrender the bonus they previously received. It was great. That's great. How do we ever measure that? How do we ever measure that? And who the heck are you? And by the way, Barney, have you noticed? That sounds kind of like rewarding people for doing well. I thought you were against rewarding people for doing well.

If Barney Frank is such a supporter on "Say on pay," I think I should be one. I think I'm going to join Barney Frank in the "Say on pay" campaign. Now, sure that sounds counterintuitive, but let's just limit it to people who receive federal money. Let's just do that. Not every company. Just any of these dirt bag companies and the dirtbags that work for them that are taking federal money. Anybody who's taking federal money, you're right; we should have a "Say on pay." And I'm going to go a step further, Barney Frank. I'm going to say it should be binding. Yeah. Huh? Barney, right now Barney's like, "Gee, there must be a trick to this some place. He can't be agreeing with me because this sounds -- it's all making sense to me. Yes, yes, yes! I say to myself yes! Oh, Barney, yes." What we're not going to tell Barney is he's one of the guys that takes federal dollars. So Barney, when you don't do so well, we're gonna have a vote on whether you should get a pay raise.

See, right now you guys -- this is great. Congress -- by the way, congress got a raise over the holiday. Did you know that? New Year's Eve they gave themselves a holiday -- they gave themselves a raise. Hmmm. How did that happen? Well, they didn't even have to be in session. It just automatically happens because they voted that they could get an automatic raise every year, that way they don't have to vote on it because it's too political. Now, I don't know why they wouldn't do that for you if you were making minimum wage, which I said don't vote -- we shouldn't with a minimum wage. She shouldn't have a maximum wage, she shouldn't have a minimum wage. Let the states decide what the maximum wage and the minimum wage would be in their states because a minimum wage in Kentucky certainly is not livable on a minimum wage, that same minimum wage in New York City. But, of course, the politicians needed to have that minimum wage. So I said if we're going to go down the minimum wage, why wouldn't we just vote that it automatically goes up with a cost of living, that there's automatic cost of living rises on a minimum wage. No, they don't want to do that because they need the political power. They need to be able to say, "I'm in there fighting for you, the person with the minimum wage." Otherwise it just automatically happens and nobody notices it.

Now, why would they not want to do that with the minimum wage but they do want to do that with their own wage? I'm going to go a step further. "Say on pay," Barney Frank. "If you take federal dollars, you should be held responsible. What's happening to all that money? What are you doing with it? How much waste is there?" You are exactly right, Barney Frank. And so seeing that I'm your employer, I should be able to say, "I don't think you guys are getting a raise. And we'll evaluate every year how good of a job are the people doing right now in Washington that the American people are giving a 10% approval rating. Sucks to be you. Look who's giving all of their money back from last year, Barney Frank, on the banking committee. Looks like you pretty much suck.

I'm going to go a step further. You know, Harry Reid is saying that he just, he didn't have any kind of conversations with the governor of Illinois. What, I haven't had conversations. You know they're on tape. Hmmm? You know, they're not letting these tapes be released. Now, let me ask you a question. Don't they work for us? We use common sense. Aren't they our employees? If they're our employees, as a boss don't you have a right to look and see what's on people's company computers? Don't you have a right as an employer if they are using company e-mail to be able to see what's in their e-mail? I think we should have GotomyPC on all of these dirtbags' computers. I think you should be able to log onto Harry Reid's computer anytime. There's a difference between national security, but we the people will discover and define national security, not you guys. Because all of a sudden it will be your gym membership account. I think we should be able to see what everything is on your computer. We should be able to see absolutely everything -- it used to be called freedom of information, but that doesn't really work so well anymore. I think we should be able to see absolutely everything that you people are doing, and I think at the end of the year we should evaluate you and see if you get that raise, that outrageous 2.8% raise. I don't think you deserve 2.8. I don't think you deserve a damn -- and no offense, Barney Frank -- one fat dime.

 

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
