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”?

Whitney Webb EXPOSES the REAL power behind Jeffrey Epstein's sexual blackmail network

Journalist Whitney Webb has a gift for locating power and hunting it in its darkest corners. In her new two-volume book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” she exposes the dark truth about Epstein’s extensive criminal operations and the connections to entire networks of power and influence — a web of elites that infiltrates the highest ranks of every sector, including law enforcement, art, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, big business, real estate, philanthropy, media, academia, banking and more.

Webb joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to expose just how deep Epstein's vast network of corruption and power really went. Was Epstein a government informant? How big is the scandal's body count? And of course, did Epstein actually kill himself?

Webb's research into transhumanism has also given her a terrifying perspective on the World Economic Forum and tech elites, including Elon Musk. People around the world have had enough of these global elites trying to control their lives, and they're starting to elect leaders who are pushing back. But can these new leaders survive the system that people like Klaus Schwab have put in place?

Webb told Glenn that she believes we're actually facing something much bigger than Klaus Schwab.

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to explain why, with over 100,000 votes left to count, she's "100% confident" that she will win against Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs, who currently still holds a narrow lead.

Kari also gave her thoughts on why the ballot counting has been so slow, why that's "embarrassing" for Arizona, and whether Republican senatorial candidate Blake Masters will also win his election.

We've learned some very valuable lessons from this year's midterm elections so far, but perhaps the most important takeaway should be that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis should be the model for the entire GOP.

"Any Republican that's not willing to look at Ron DeSantis, and see what he did and how he did it, and begin to model themselves after that is a fool. An absolute fool," said Glenn Beck stated on the radio program. "He is not angry. He is not divisive, at least [not] intentionally divisive. That's not his goal. His goal is to be decisive, and decisive people are perceived sometimes as divisive because a lot of people don't want to make changes. It is time to make changes," he stated.

"Second thing, our nation is spiritually lost. Completely lost," Glenn continued. "There is only one savior, and he's not on a ballot. Until we drop the manifest destiny [and] arrogance of 'God's on my side,' we will continue to suffer defeat, hardships, and darkness. And I mean as a nation, we are all going to pay for this. We must be on God's side, and that requires humility."

Glenn went on to say the third big takeaway is that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "was and is wrong."

"Lukewarm Republicans are not going to defeat the Democrats," Glenn asserted. "Just not being a Democrat is not enough. And Mitch McConnell should feel the ramifications of this loss. Mitt Romney said just last week, he tweeted that a red wave was coming, and it was all thanks to Mitch McConnell. Well, it turns out he was right. What was coming is all thanks to Mitch McConnell."

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck unpacks the wins, losses, and lessons from the midterms and asks, “Why can’t everyone be like Florida?”

Results are still coming in, but if Republicans take the House, what will they do with a majority? BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere argues the GOP must stop the bleeding and block the worst instincts of the Biden administration. We can’t relax for the next two years and put our hope in a Republican presidential candidate.

Matthew Peterson of the New Founding PAC says, win or lose, “No one is coming to save you”— there are REAL changes you can actually make at the local level. Now is the time to start building careers, communities, and infrastructures that align with your values to better fend off attacks from the Left. “Why be around people who don’t like you?” Make red states redder.

David Barton of WallBuilders brings some much-needed perspective and says the mainstream media was too focused on national issues; there were MAJOR untold wins at the local level. At the end of the day, bold leadership was rewarded.

Finally, Glenn shocks the audience by agreeing with Mitt Romney and apologizes for the creative direction of the graphics featuring Democratic candidates in BlazeTV’s election coverage. Just kidding. They had it coming.
