Glenn Beck: More problems for Treasury Secretary pick


Timothy Geithner

GLENN: By the way, more on Timothy Geithner. Is it Geither? What is it? A guy who shouldn't be the treasury secretary? I tried to figure out how much he was making. I just wanted something from the International Monetary Fund on how much this guy was making. By the way, these are tax dollars. I have no idea. I can't find it. We couldn't find it. My researchers couldn't find it anywhere. So we went to the Fox researchers. We went to Fox. The Fox researchers, they are pretty good, you know? Fox researchers, that's kind of what they do. Well, they finally found it and let me show it to the Insiders. Here's the payroll statement from the International Monetary Fund, and if you can look, Insiders, I don't know if you can see this but if you look on the Insider web cam, you'll see that the document -- you want to hold it over to the camera, Stu? The document has all of the -- oh, look at that. Huh, somebody's blacked out all of the money that we're paying this guy. So you have no idea what this guy made.

Oh, by the way, another piece of information on the new treasury secretary, or the nominee that, you know, didn't pay his income tax, and it was all a big mistake. They now have a signed document from him to the IMF saying, I completely understand. In fact, Stu, do you have that? I don't have the actual -- is it in the --

STU: Yeah, give me a second.

GLENN: Which one? Yeah, it's a signed document. I have to read it to you, the exact verbatim.

STU: Yeah, I have it here. Hold on a second. It is -- let me scroll down here.

GLENN: It's unbelievable.

STU: Come on. There we go. I hereby certify that all the information contained herein is true to the best of my knowledge and belief and that I will pay the taxes for which I have received tax allowance payments from the fund. I mean, that one is pretty correct.

GLENN: Pretty darn clear, and his signature is there. They gave him money four times a year, they gave him a statement saying you owe this much taxes. They paid him not only the income tax but also the FICA. He didn't pay the FICA, and here's his signature on a piece of paper saying, "I know that I owe it and I will pay it because I'm getting this money." What else do you need to know? Oh, I'm sorry, the other thing you need to know is congress suddenly got busy on his confirmation.

Did you hear, Stu, what they said yesterday?

STU: No.

GLENN: It needed to be rescheduled because of other important things came up with congress. So they couldn't -- they needed it rescheduled because it was like, what is it, a snow day?

STU: Well, I mean, you know, Glenn, there's a lot of things that are far more important than not having any treasury secretary right now.

GLENN: Clearly, clearly. There's... there's... there's environmental concerns, global warming is breathing down our back. I mean, come on.

STU: I love it. They said that some of the senators, despite all these tax problems, some of the senators may vote to get him into the treasury secretary role because basically they don't want to go too long without having somebody, which plays right into the American spirit of "We've got to have somebody" because that's how this country was built on, "We need somebody; throw them in there."

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
