Glenn Beck: Problems Don't Require 'Global' Solutions




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

Everyone knows the world economy is on fire and all the leaders are trying to come up with something big to fix it.

But here's the one thing: The problem is the solution.

This morning, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with President Obama to propose a global "New Deal," suggesting that a comprehensive solution is needed to save the world from deep and prolonged recession.

That's bull crap.

This isn't about stopping a recession. It's about (in the immortal words of Rahm Emanuel) never letting a serious crisis go to waste.

Those who dream of us all living in peace and harmony in one sunshine and lollipop global community see this economic crisis as their opening. And gang, I can no longer look you in the eye and say it will never happen.

Think about it like this: Every day, Obama is out there talking about just how bad the economy is. Remember, they told us that if we didn't give the government hundreds of billions right away, the whole thing could collapse overnight.

But if that's true, then let me ask you a question: Why is an issue like global warming so high on the president's agenda?

The new budget contains a cap-and-trade program that is supposed to limit carbon-dioxide emissions. But if it performs anywhere near as well as the one in Europe has, it will likely limit nothing except corporate profits and economic growth. The Marshall Institute estimates this program will result in GDP losses from 0.3 percent up to 3 percent below business as usual projections in 2015.

Didn't everyone freak out at just how bad our last quarter was? Well, guess what? That was a loss of just 1.5 percent — half of what this idiotic cap-and-trade program could cost us.

So, why is it there? Well, remember the one thing: the solution is the problem.

The answer to why we're talking about global warming now is contained right there in its name: global warming.

Global warming fits perfectly with a global New Deal because they're both focused on solving everyone's problems all at once, while also ensuring that America takes on a majority of the world's burden.

But what they don't tell you is that "global" solutions are never the answer. Our problems will never be fixed from the top down, they can only be solved from the bottom up.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
