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”?

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
