Glenn Beck: We Can't Trust Timothy Geithner


There is only one thing that we could possibly lead with today and that is Timothy Geithner. He is – I believe – the most qualified guy for the treasury secretary job. He’s the guy I would have picked. I also would not have picked him because it’s not just about his credentials. It’s more than that.

Banks and politicians trust him. And maybe at this point in our country’s history, that’s why we shouldn’t. In a country where thousands of people are losing their jobs, we are promoting a guy who has made three major errors in judgment, any one of which would have put you or me in the unemployment line.

First, he’s the guys that developed the TARP program. You know, the program where we’ve already lost over 25% of our money in that can’t mis-invest – no really America, we’re just going to put it in this bank right here, you’re going to be worth a fortune in five years.

Really?

We’ve already lost over $64 billion. Tim, I think that whole TARP thing, you might wanna leave that off your resume.

Second, Geithner cheated on his income taxes. I mean, it wasn’t just once. It was, like, a lot of times. He even accepted cash for taxes he never paid.

He appeared before Congress today and — while he didn’t cry — he said “Gosh, darn it. We sure do love apologies. Yes, senator. I do know that I sold nuclear secrets to China, but I’m really, really sorry. Can I still be in the cabinet?”

I don’t think so clown!

Again, this is not about his judgment. This is — I mean, this is not about his qualifications. This is about his judgment; his ability to run our tax system and the printing presses – which are currently going 24 hours a day.

And third, he employed an illegal immigrant in his home. Now, let’s just say he doesn’t care about all of that. And he’s got a compassionate — he’s just, just a good person. He’s a public figure.

I mean, as a public figure you can say, “You know, I really love you but I can’t have this coming down on my head.” If there’s any question about somebody’s status, there’s no question they shouldn’t be working for you. At least because you’re a public figure and you might get caught.

With the amount of power given to the treasury secretary, we need to know we will have somebody who will act with honor, even when nobody is watching. That, apparently, is not Tim Geithner. We don’t need a gambler in charge of America’s money.

So, the question is, when America will finally say, “You know, I think I’ve learned my lesson. Enough is enough”?

No one is too big to fail. No one in this country is above the law. Those pushing for him are the same clowns that got us into this mess in the first place.

And, another thing. How can we teach our kids that business ethics matter when they apparently don’t matter to America’s top money man? You can’t do business with somebody – anybody – if you can’t look that person in the eye and trust him.

Everything we know about this guy — so far — suggests that we cannot trust Timothy Geithner. He is a gambler with his own life and possibly with our money. This guy wants an unlimited bankroll – our bankroll. And it’s time to cut him off. If Timothy Geithner can be stopped, it’s probably going to be a Republican who does it.

So who’s going to stand up and say “No, I don’t think you should really be running the IRS”?

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.
