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.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
