GLENN: Let me make a prediction. Your local television stations, your local newspapers have a good chance of going out of business in the next twelve months. Your local newscast is going to be very hard to find on more than one station. Your local station, it's going to be hard to find a city where there is a local television station that is actually with a transmitter. Because they are not going to be able to afford it. The advertising is disappearing. On television stations their ad revenue has been cut by 70% in some cases. People are going to be begging -- do you know the New York Times went to a Mexican billionaire and borrowed how much money, Stu, did the New York Times borrow? They borrowed this enormous sum of money to keep their doors open at 14% interest. Excuse me? At 14% interest they borrowed this money. You've got to be kidding. These people cannot come after the government because they are going to need the bailout. It's coming and it's going to happen quickly and unless you have people in the halls of government that actually represent you, unless you have the people that are advertising the president or running the treasury that you actually trust, when they say to you this must be done if we don't trust them, well, how do we know it has to be done? They are saying now that he's just too smart, he's the guy for the job. I'm sorry. The guy for the job is the guy who will tell me the truth when it hurts him to tell you the truth! And they're not going to do it unless you stand up. And the longer that you wait, the more dangerous it becomes. If we would have turned the tide on honesty and integrity, really turned the tide, five years ago on the financial situation, if we would have said, "No, you can't do these." When I was on the air in Philadelphia, Stu, when was this? 2003 and they started making these crazy loans with you don't need any money down and I said, please, America, please don't do this! This is going to come back and bite you in the ass; it doesn't make any sense; pl ease don't do this. Do you remember that? If we would have turned the tide then and we would have let people collapse that were dirty, we would have put them in jail, we would have let their banks go out of business then, it wouldn't have been so painful. But we didn't do it. And now everybody's saying, "Now you don't understand if these collapse now, you don't understand." I do understand. It means that we will have a depression overnight. I understand that. But I have faith that we'll make it together in a depression! I know who we are! I know who we are. We will make it. We will lean on each other not because we're told by the government to sure our wealth but because that's who we are. We're not going to let our neighbors starve. We're going to share with each other, not by the force of an IRS agent or the end of a gun but because we fundamentally are different. We love each other. We love our country. We believe in this land. We believe in God. We believe in each other. But if we don't stand up with our voices, crazy people will stand up later. And when those crazy people stand up, everything changes and now your very life hangs in your decision. Then you're going to have to pick sides. You don't want to be in that position. I don't want to be in that position. This can be solved. Yes, there will be economic pain. Yes. But we stand together, and all we have to do is the tough thing, which happens to be the right thing. Stand up for honor. Stand up for integrity. Stand up for decency. Stand up and say "I was wrong." Stand up against -- you know, I had Mary Matalin and who was the other -- Stephen Moore on television last night and Mary Matalin, rightfully so she said, you know, the double standard in this country, I can't take it. If the Republicans would have... and I stopped her and I said, Mary, I can't take it anymore. I don't care! I don't care about, oh, poor me, I've had to go through this. Yes, the double standard is crazy. I can't -- I mean, we all know we wouldn't get away with this because we're conservatives. We all know it. Great; let's move on. How many times do we have to play that dance number?

There's something much, much bigger at stake: Our republic. Gosh, I'm sorry. I did not mean to give this monologue. This just kind of spilled out of me today. I actually, this is what I wanted to tell you when I started. I don't feel like I've had a chance to talk to you. I feel like I've spent far too much time this week talking at you, and I'm sorry. And I want to hear you and so I want to start something today. You know, usually we do Closed Line Friday and I take like four phone calls. But I want to hear your voice. I want to know what you're thinking, and I get so much mail from people who are saying, "Well, Glenn, I don't understand this." Or, "Glenn, what about this," or, "Where are you on this." I get so much mail and we have been inundated with mail, especially this week. I mean, it's just, we got the ratings again last night for, what, the night before, I guess Wednesday's show, and this show, it's just been remarkable. I mean, it is -- and I know, I mean, I've been promoting it and it's been a big news week and everything else, but it appears to be -- and it could go away tomorrow, but -- it may, but it appears to be that, the television show appears to be this monstrous, you know, hit for the 5:00 hour and we're just very thrilled, and we know it could end at any time. But I'm just getting so much mail and everything else and I don't want to lose track of you because honestly I don't do it for you, I really don't. And I know that's probably something I shouldn't admit. I don't do it for you. I do it for my kids.

The producer of my TV show said last night, he said, "Glenn, I've been watching you now for two weeks. Why do you do this? You don't need the money, you don't need the fame. Why are you doing this? Where are you getting your drive from?" And we're in the hallway and I looked at him and I got my typical sappy self and I kind of felt like I am right now and I said, "Because I believe it. Because I believe it." I get my strength from you because I think you believe it as well. Gosh, I hope you do. Because when we fail, we fail because we feel alone. Gosh, and we're not. We might feel like it, just the two of us just sitting here talking about it, but you're not alone. There are millions of people that feel like you and me.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
