Glenn Beck: March to socialism - 'if this stimulus is passed'

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Oh, that's right. For all our problems right now, we're still the greatest country on Earth. We're always setting records that make other countries sit back and, oh, they are just like, wow, how's America do that? Well, we've done it again, gang. We're number one. We just set a new record for the largest debt. Congratulations, America. You now owe $11 trillion. The whopping number has a major ramification for President Barack Obama who is trying to push through a raft of big picture bills on healthcare, energy, education, climate change while also attempting to stabilize the swooning economy. Oh, top it. This is what the press is writing. Stop that. When is gigantic debt and a faltering economy slowed down the socialism train, you know, other than the Soviet Union? But forget about that one. There were other things going on. Like they had a war going on, too. You know, they were fighting Osama Bin Laden. I mean, Soviet Union never had a stimulus package like ours, and I'd like to point that out. I remember when we were first being told about the glorious stimulus package and Barack Obama went east to East Peoria, Illinois? Remember he was standing there at the Caterpillar plant? That was so great. Oh, it's just, I still, I can smell the patriots in the air. I can see the red, white and blue behind him. I just know that it was a patriotic thing to do because there were blue-collar workers, there were people wearing hard hats, there were tractors or a Caterpillar in this particular case and there were flags. And I thought, my gosh, this has got to be good. And I listened and it was. Remember he told us that the CEO of Caterpillar told him that he will be able to rehire some of the employees that have already been laid off. If he would just only pass the stimulus package. Oh, it was so great. But I don't do it justice. Listen carefully. This is what he said.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It is time for congress to act.

GLENN: Yeah.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I hope they act in a bipartisan fashion.

GLENN: Oh.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But no matter how they act, when they do, when they finally pass our plan, I believe it will be a major step forward on our path to economic recovery.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I'm not the only one who thinks so.

GLENN: Really?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Yesterday Jim, the head of Caterpillar said if congress passes our plan.

GLENN: Yeah.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: This company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid off.

GLENN: Oh, that is fantastic, America. That is --

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's a story I'm confident will be repeated at companies across the country.

GLENN: Oh, it sure is going to be repeated and several -- took 11 minutes before the CEO of Caterpillar came out and said, "I didn't actually say that." You know. He said, "I mean, if it's possible, if the stimulus package passes and the economy recovers down the line, we may possibly be able to rehire a few of those people that were laid off, but maybe." But that was before he felt the true power of the stimulus package. Now that congress has acted in a bipartisan fashion, it's finally passed. And the true blessings of the stimulus package can rain down upon the tiny hard hatted heads there at Caterpillar and their employees. Hang on just -- this was just handed to me. Caterpillar notified an additional 2,454 workers in three states Tuesday that they were losing their jobs as the company continues to try to bring production in line with plummeting demand.

So anyway, so not only are they not rehiring laid-off employees like, you know, we were promised by the president. "Jim just told me that they were going to do that." So now they are announcing thousands of new layoffs. But wait. That's not the worst part. Where are the vast majority of the layoffs coming from? Would you believe the exact same factory in the exact same city of East Peoria, Illinois that Barack Obama made the promise at. Whether you believe it or not, it's true. But if we act now and we act in a bipartisan way, if we could just pass a second stimulus package, Caterpillar will be able to do more of these things, and I think it's a story that will be repeated many times in companies all across this great land.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's a story I'm confident will be repeated at companies across the country.

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 Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
