Glenn Beck: March to Socialism - no disclosure?




Watch Glenn Beck weeknights at 5PM ET on the Fox News Channel

GLENN: Well, last night the president gave a speech, ready to spend $900 billion on a stimulus bill or spending bill, but here's what Barack Obama said last night.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Then you get the argument, well, this is not a stimulus bill; this is a spending bill. What do you think a stimulus is? (Laughing). That's the whole point. No, seriously. That's the point."

GLENN: (Laughing). No, it's not. No, it's not. Spending is not the way out of something. Still will you say, you want the stimulus, you want to stimulate the economy? You have two choices, Barack Obama: The government spends it or they allow us to have more of our money. Listen to mine, they allow us to have more money. I've already fallen into their stupid trap. They give me my money back! And they allow me to spend it. You're right, spending. It's just who's spending it. Are we buying it on frickin' condoms? Or do I get to choose? I believe in a free country. I get to choose. That's the difference.

Do you remember when conservatives were dismissed with the same old tired arguments of calling the Obama campaign just nothing but empty tax-and-spend liberal policies? He said last night the whole point of the bill is to stimulate the economy was spending, by the government. If you're going to spend $900 billion, that's the whole point. We would like to know exactly where it's going. I know it's crazy, but think of this. When we were originally told that we were going to be spending, we were going to be spending most of it on infrastructure. Then we found out that it would take years to do that. We heard that there were plenty of shovel-ready projects ready to go. Shovel-ready? At first I thought they were admitting how much of this was BS and you need shovels to get it out but apparently shovel-ready means ready to go, ready to put the shovel in the ground, if it only had funding, we could do it." Well, Barack's hometown, the completely noncorrupt City of Chicago in the completely noncorrupt State of Illinois has their list of shovel-ready projects that they are going to spend your money on. But what are they? I have it... right... okay, I don't have it right here because here's what happened. Mayor Richard Daley said in Chicago that he has compiled a wish list of shovel-ready projects to spend federal economic stimulus funds on should congress approve a plan. Unlike hundreds of other cities, Daly said Chicago will not make its list public. Well, whose money is this? Why won't Daly make this list public? "We didn't put that out publicly because once you start putting it out publicly, you know, the newspapers, the media, they are going to start ripping it apart." Oh, I get it. You won't make it public because the public might realize how stupidly we're spending our money! Well, gee, how dare us for caring. Don't worry, he will let you know soon enough. This is the great part. When you're on a steep downhill road to socialism, you don't have to worry about such things. The state knows it all. They shall not be questioned. Being an uninformed drone, aka useful idiot who is disengaged from the god-like state is just so much easier on you, the worker. How dare you ask where the money is going. How dare you. It's going to social projects, but don't ever call it socialism!

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon, on the Glenn Beck program.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
