Glenn Beck: Frustration boiling over



Rick Santelli on CNBC

GLENN: Let me go to Elizabeth in Florida. Hello, Elizabeth, you are on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn, first-time caller here.

GLENN: Thank you.

CALLER: Thanks for everything you do. You are really appreciated in our family. I've got two questions for you, if that's okay.

GLENN: Yep.

CALLER: What do you think about the transportation secretary Ray LaHood taxing motorists for the mileage that they drive, Massachusetts is even thinking about doing a tentative plan using GPS chips in our cars.

GLENN: Sure, I think it's the way to not raise gas prices -- or I mean gas tax and everybody will say, "Oh, well, they are going to relieve the gas tax" not knowing exactly, you know, what this means. And it's another way for the government to encourage you to take the train or ride the bus or whatever else. But it's not going to be any different other than they can raise taxes higher and higher and higher on the evil combustion engine.

CALLER: I see. And what do you think about Rick Santelli's rant on CNBC yesterday?

GLENN: Can we play this? Hang on just a second, Elizabeth. Let me see if we can play this.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Here is the rant on CNBC. This is a trader that is on the floor, the trading floor in Chicago. Listen to this.

VOICE: Listening to it, I've been just glued to it because Mr. Ross has nailed it. You know, the government is promoting bad behavior because we certainly don't want to put stimulus forth and give people a whopping $8 or $10 in their check and think that they ought to save it. And in terms of modifications, I tell you what, I have a new idea. You know, the new administration's big on computers and technology. How about this, president and new administration: Why don't you put up a website to have people vote on the Internet as a referendum to see if we really want to subsidize the losers' mortgages or would we like to at least buy cars and buy houses in foreclosure and give them to people that might have a chance to actually prosper down the road and reward people that could carry the water instead of drink the water.

VOICE: Hey, Rick --

VOICE: A novel idea.

GLENN: Pause it for a second. This I believe is the turning point in this. I think that up until this it was a good commentary and, you know, the guy's kind of a showman, et cetera, et cetera, and he's outspoken, and this was a good commentary at this point. But this is where it goes from commentary to real. I believe this is the opening fire across the bow. When he said, "President Obama, are you hearing this," he couldn't have spoken truer words. This is the beginning that somebody in our government needs to finally pay attention. It is what I've been talking about that was coming for a very long time and that is disenfranchisement which will turn into anger and then turn into God knows what. And only the government can diffuse this by not reinjuring people. So this is where it gets real. Listen carefully. You hear the floor?

VOICE: They are like putty in your hands. Did you hear?

VOICE: No, they are not, Joe. They are not like putty in their hands. This is America. How do you --

GLENN: Pause it again. Do you hear his outrage again? Did you hear he was, "Hey, how about, you know, how about we pay for this, or how about we don't do this." And then all of a sudden he becomes outraged. You can't -- you didn't pause it? Go ahead, play it. Here we go.

VOICE: Don't want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can't pay their bills. Raise their hand.

GLENN: Hear the anger?

VOICE: President Obama, are you listening?

VOICE: How about we all stop paying our mortgage. It's a moral hazard.

GLENN: That was just a trader on the floor.

VOICE: I'm getting scared --

GLENN: And media here in New York dismissing it.

VOICE: We're we used to have mansions and a relatively decent economy. They moved from the individual collective. Now they are driving '54 Chevys. Maybe the last great car to come out of Detroit.

VOICE: They are driving them on water, too, which is a little strange to watch at times.

VOICE: There you go.

VOICE: Hey, Rick, how about the notion that pointed out, you can go down to 2% on the mortgage.

VOICE: You could go down to minus 2%. They can't afford the house.

VOICE: And still have 40% not be able to do it. So why are they in the house? Why are we trying to keep them in the house?

VOICE: Mr. Summers is a great economist but, boy, I'd love the answer to that one.

GLENN: Anger.

VOICE: You get people fired up.

VOICE: Jason, you want to --

VOICE: We're thinking about having a Chicago tea party in July. All you capitalists that want to show up to Lake Michigan, I'm going to start organizing it.

VOICE: What are you dumping in this I'm?

GLENN: Stop. There you go. This is what's coming. There is going to be peaceful civil disobedience. That is, I think that is the first step. And this was the first launch across the bow of peaceful civil disobedience. If it doesn't turn the corner -- do you have the Fox dynamics poll, Stu, from yesterday? Elizabeth, thank you so much for asking about the CNBC thing, and I will tell you this will be the key. So far do you think I have this right?

CALLER: Absolutely. I'm telling you I want to go to that tea party.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
