Glenn Beck: Nancy Pelosi is an idiot

GLENN: I've got to play the Nancy Pelosi audio here and she's just giving a press conference about how bad the situation is and how much of a rush that we are in now to get this stimulus package passed. Could we please pay this audio from Nancy Pelosi. It's going to change.

PELOSI: The package is going too fast and maybe it won't be ready by the President's Day recess.

PELOSI: Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

GLENN: Whoa, wait a minute. Could you play that again, please? Every month that we don't have an economic stimulus package, what happens?

PELOSI: Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

GLENN: 500 million Americans lose their job every single month we don't have an economic stimulus package.

STU: Now Glenn, if I'm remembering correctly, the entire U.S. workforce is about 140 million people. So we're talking about in one month from now, we're talking about just in one month, 30 days.

GLENN: Right.

STU: There will be negative 360 million workers in America.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

STU: And that's much worse than the Great Depression. I'm not a historian. I know Ben Bernanke has studied those things but that's more than 25% unemployment.

GLENN: If you are lucky, if you have your job today, count your lucky stars. Be the best employee that you can be but know if they don't have this passed by the end of this month, everyone in America, including your children's children's children, will have lost their jobs.

STU: To put this into perspective, Glenn, and this is what the media won't tell you.

GLENN: This is what the media is not telling you. They are not telling you about the 500 million jobs that are being lost just this month.

STU: Right. By the end of the year if you took everybody in the world.

GLENN: Everybody in the world.

STU: All in America.

GLENN: All in America.

STU: And employed all of them.

GLENN: All of them.

STU: All six trillion people (laughing)

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Would lose their jobs by the end of this year.

GLENN: What -- where is the New York Times exposing that by the end of the year, all six billion people on the planet will be unemployed if we don't have a stimulus package?

STU: We did hear that audio right, Dan. That was -- can you play that again?

PELOSI: Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

GLENN: Man, I didn't realize that. Wow. A billion people are going to lose their jobs by the end of next month.

STU: I mean, if you just to the math out, Glenn, you are talking about by Valentine's Day, 250 million people, almost the entire population of this country is going to lose their job in this country.

GLENN: Let me ask you this. By Valentine's Day -- Stu, do me a favor.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Let's say we don't pass this stimulus package.

STU: Well, you can't. 500 million people are going to lose their job!

GLENN: I understand, I understand! If we don't pass this stimulus package by 2011, how many jobs will be lost?

STU: Glenn --

GLENN: How many -- I understand!

STU: You can't do that.

GLENN: There will be people on other planets that will lose their jobs because the United States congress, those damn Republicans, stood in the way.

STU: Glenn, right now we're looking at 17.5 trillion people will lose their jobs by the end of 2011. (laughing)

GLENN: Okay, now look, here's the thing. She obviously meant that 500,000 people lose.

STU: You are saying that's obvious? You were going to say that that's obvious?

GLENN: I mean, what else is --

STU: I don't know what else.

GLENN: Come on, everything else is ridiculous.

STU: You are saying 500 million people a month losing their job is ridiculous. You don't know this economic crisis. You are downplaying it, you are in the media. You have money invested.

GLENN: Let me just say that if they pass this economic stimulus package and in March, in March if anybody loses their job, why did we do it? Because every second, every minute, every hour, every month that goes by without the stimulus package, 500 -- I claim she means thousand but she said 500 million Americans lose their job, which would imply -- right? Which would imply that we have no time to lose here.

STU: Glenn, actually there is no time to lose. Every second that passes by.

GLENN: He's counting, too.

STU: 11,574 people lose their job, 11,000 people per second.

GLENN: Every second. How many children are starved to death?

STU: 696,000 people per minute.

GLENN: How many degrees Celsius is that, if it continues on this trend? Let me ask you this: How many people will be unemployed if we don't pass this stimulus package by the time the IPCC says we will all drown in a fiery flood?

STU: That's already happened. So we're okay on that one.

GLENN: All right, good. Jeez.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
