GLENN: We had a brainstorming session last night. It was going on, I had a conference call, it went on about four different states last night with different -- some of the big minds that I really respect that I said, "Okay, how do I show people that they're not alone." Tomorrow I'm going to share the story of the Alamo with you, and I know that sounds like, "Oh, gee, I can't wait to tune in for that." You need to hear it. You need to hear it. You want to talk about feeling alone, against the odds. And why did those people stand?

I'm reading another book about the Civil War and why people stood together in the Civil War, and the lessons that I learned from history are all the same: People stand together, people will stand up and do the right thing if they realize that Ed is wrong, that they're not alone. Well, you're not. Common sense isn't dead in this country. It's just been put in mothballs. It's forcibly been taken away and put in mothballs. Our collective gut has never been better. I don't think I've ever seen -- I don't think -- let me be Michelle Obama: "For the first time I'm proud of my country." I don't think it's -- it's been a very long time since I've seen such a focused collective gut on America. It happened, the last time I saw it was after 9/11. We knew collectively what we were going to do. But our politicians were with us. Why? Because they know we would have -- well, we would have taken their skulls and cut them open and eaten their brains. I'm just sayin'. They knew instinctively that they were Americans, too. They weren't politicians; they were just one of us. Well, they've lost that "Just one of us" thing and that's what they're missing. But America's gut is good. America's gut is saying no to Tim Geithner. Politicians think they know better than us. They say yes. What was Tim Geithner's first thing he did? He appointed somebody that he needed, was very, very good for the job. Obama's all with it, you bet, Tim, you go. Who was it? Name's not important, job's not important. What is important is he's a lobbyist.

Wait a minute. Didn't Barack Obama say he wasn't going to allow any lobbyist to be appointed? Isn't this in the first week of him being on the job the second time he's broken his own rules? Oh, yeah, but rules don't matter. Rules don't matter. This guy's the best guy for the job. So Obama said yes. How could he have possibly said no to Tim Geithner who broke the rules but it didn't matter because he was the best guy for the job? Rules matter. You know that and I know that. They don't. They've forgotten it. They've come -- honestly it's like we're living in a -- it's like we're living in a cartoon. It's Bizarro world.

So what do they need to do? What is their next move? Well, their next move is to get this passed as fast as they possibly can, even though Obama's big problem with the PATRIOT Act was that it had been passed too fast. I believe the quote was, "Anytime you pass something that rapidly, you're bound to have mistakes." People are going -- they are not going to have time to really digest it and understand its full impact and meaning.

Well, aren't we moving just as fast on this as we did with the PATRIOT Act? And just as many rights are at stake because if you're not economically free, you cannot be free. 647 pages. Quite honestly I've had the best minds on my staff read the 647 pages. There are pages that they brought to me yesterday and said, "Glenn, read this. It's about illegal immigration." I read it. I have no idea. None of us could figure out whether or not that was good or bad for illegal immigration. We have no idea what it even means, and they're voting on this... today. $825 billion stimulus, which is not a stimulus. Again, 3% goes into the bloodstream this year. This isn't a stimulus.

By the way, the $825 billion is even a lie because you have to add interest. If we pay this off by 2020 which they say, "Of course we'll pay this off by 2020, of course we will." Mmm-hmmm. How exactly? If we pay this off by 2020, it's $1.2 trillion? So $1.1, $1.2 trillion if you add the interest. That's if we haven't lost our credit rating as well between now and 2020.

But here are some of the things that are in the stimulus package and you tell me if this is stimulus, if this is what is promised and that is, build America, build America into a better America, one prepared for the future. $1 billion for Amtrak. Unless you're buying signs that says "For sale" or "This train closed until it can run a profit," I don't know how that makes us a better country. $1 trillion for Amtrak. This is a federal railroad that hasn't turned a profit in 40 years. $2 billion for child care subsidies. $50 million for that great engine of job creation, the National Endowment For the Arts. $40 million for global warming research. I thought the science was settled! Another $2.4 billion for carbon capture demonstration projects. $650 million on top of the billions or doled out to pay for digital TV conversion coupons. I don't even know what the hell that is, but is this again what we talked about yesterday paying for digital TV so we can all have high definition? I don't need digital TV. Do you need digital TV? This is for using the digital TV frequencies? Who's going to be using them? This is the most ridiculous -- this is not going to make us into a better America. The federal government wants to spend over half a billion dollars for new cars. We already spend $3 billion on a fleet of 600,000 cars. They want to spend $7 billion for modernizing federal buildings and facilities. I don't care if you work at a crap hole. We're tightening our belt.

Do you know that the congressional members have just voted themselves an increase to, I think it's to send you more literature about how great of a job they're doing. $90 -- I've got to get this -- ask Joe to get this fact for me. It's some staggering amount for each congressional member. I think it's $90,000 a year. For what? To be able to better stay in touch with you. Oh, campaign flyers. Oh, I get it.

By the way, higher education, what are we doing on education in higher education? This bill has $66 billion more for education. So you know, $66 billion is more than the entire education department spent ten years ago. The increase is more than what we spent for the entire department of education ten years ago, which doubled under President Bush. $6 billion will subsidize university building projects. Why? You do it. You've got all that money. Oh, no, are you hurting? Yeah, well, so is everybody else. If you think the intention here is to help kids learn, Page 257 according to the Wall Street Journal, Page 257, the bill declares, quote: No recipient shall use such funds to provide financial assistance that students that attend private elementary or secondary schools. So translation? If it's a school that doesn't have union workers, they don't get any money. No child left behind, except those that are going to private schools that actually take the burden off the state.

Schoolteachers that don't belong to a union can't get a dollar but ACORN, which is under investigation in more than a dozen states, they get a bite at $4.9 billion in this bill.

Look, I'm going to send all of this stuff out to you today in the free newsletter. We're going to break it down. There is a -- if you just play all of these things out, they have to take the opposition away. That's why Rush Limbaugh is such a target right now. That's not about Rush Limbaugh. That's about talk radio. That's about anybody that opposes this administration. They must silence those voices.

I said while I was on the book tour, and I would stand in crowds of 1,000 people and I'd be at a bookstore and people, their heads would be popping over the rows of books and I would stand on a chair and I would sometimes have a bullhorn, sometimes I would just use their intercom and sometimes I would just shout at the top of my lungs, and I would give the same message every time: You've got to find your own voice because there will come a time when the voices that you now rely on will be gone. And if that happens, America, you will feel alone because no one will be saying the things that you think. No one will be allowing -- you won't be allowed to hear Judy in Pittsburgh, Bill in Houston, Sam in Los Angeles, you couldn't be able to hear those voices and so you will feel alone, which is exactly what they need you to feel. You're not alone. And whether these voices like mine go away, they will still be in our communities. If my voice or Rush's voice or Sean's voice go away because -- and this is the way it's going to happen: Well, we've -- I mean, we've lost now the local newspapers. You've got to have -- the local newspapers, I mean, all of that great debate of what was happening in the city with the city council and whether you're going to have new parks in the new park and recreation budget, we've got to have those local voices aired some place and so it's the responsibility of those local stations.

You're going to have to be the voice possibly. So let me get you this information. We vetted it. We've made sure that it's accurate. Let me get you this information so you can be the voice, so somebody next to you today will, A, know the truth and, B, understand that they're not alone. It's not just them.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
