GLENN: Barack Obama, yesterday he comes out, he is demanding $100 million in cuts. Whoa, look at this tough guy coming out swinging. And they better find it in the next 90 days. We had to sign trillions of dollars worth of stuff and we had to have it done by Friday. They've got 90 days to find $100 million? I got news for you. You ready? Department of Homeland Security, just over $50 million, they just decided to buy their office supplies differently, not to cut back. Just to buy them differently, and the Department of Homeland Security has they've saved over $50 million. Hmmm, they are halfway there. That's fantastic. They have got another 90 days to figure you got 89 days to figure out the rest of it, gang. $100 million. That's, of course, a lot of money. That's what my daughter said to me last night: Dad, $100 million is a lot to me. Yeah, yeah, me, too. $100 million, that's a lot. It might even be a lot to Warren Buffett. Not as much to Warren Buffett as it is to me.

Press secretary Robert Gibbs tried to downplay the fact that $100 million is only a tiny portion. .0029% of the budget. None of the deficit. Of the budget. Gibbs said this play this audio, please. This is press secretary Robert Gibbs yesterday.

VOICE: Why not target a bigger number?

GIBBS: Well, I think only in Washington D.C. does $100 million

VOICE: This is not a joke. The deficit's giant. $100 million really is only

GIBBS: No joke? I'm not making a joke about it. I'm being completely sincere that only in Washington D.C. is $100 million not a lot of money. It is where I'm from. It is where I grew up. And I think it is for hundreds of millions of Americans.

VOICE: But the point is it's not a


[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ]

VOICE: $8 billion being minuscule, $8 billion in earmarks. We were talking about that and you said that

VOICE: $100 million is a lot but $8 billion is small?

GIBBS: I think it all adds up, just as the president said, just as Jennifer was good enough to do in her question. If you think we're going to get rid of $1.3 trillion deficit by eliminating one thing, I'd be and the administration would be innumerably happy for you to let us know what that is.

GLENN: So why don't you just get rid of the $8 billion in earmarks? Why don't you just do that? Because it all adds up. No, no, no, the earmarks, that's such a minuscule amount. And by the way, I mean, let's just go through what he's talking about here. The typical family, the typical American family, this is the equivalent of you cutting out a latte per year. A latte per year. Do you think you could convince anyone on planet Earth with a straight face if you came home and you said, "Okay, we are spending out of control, our deficit is crazy, we're overdrawn at the bank, we're about to lose our house, we only have one thing left of value. That is our children's college fund and we are putting all of our debt into that children's college fund and that's the only thing we have left of value and you sat down at the table and you looked across the table at somebody and you said, yes, but I'm cutting out my latte. The response would be, "What?" Maybe somebody at the table would say, "Okay, it's a start. No latte for you anymore?" No, no, no, I just cut out my latte today. But today and every other day, but today I didn't buy a latte. That is what they are asking you to believe is a good thing.

I actually heard Mike Huckabee on the radio say, "Hey, it's a start." Bullcrap it's a start. It's a con game! A family who earns $100,000 a year and if you're faced with a $34,000 budget gap, so you are spending $134,000 every year but you're only bringing in $100,000, this is the equivalent of them giving up $3. You know what? I'm going to cut back three bucks. Three. It is not a start. It is an insult to the intelligence of the American taxpayer. Even the Associated Press said less than one quarter of the budget increase that congress awarded to itself. 4% of the military aid the United States currently sends to Israel. Less than half the cost of one F 22. 7% of the federal subsidy for the money losing Amtrak passenger rail system. 1/10,000th of the government's operating budgets for cabinet agencies, excluding the Iraq and afghan war and the stimulus bill. Obviously it's pathetic, but our president is counting on you not actually thinking. He just wants you to remember that he's cutting.

According to an article in Time magazine, the Obama administration has been working with behavioral psychologists throughout the campaign and he is still working with psychologists to figure out what his actions mean to you! And the best way to convince you that what he's doing is right! He's not doing what's right! He's doing what appears to be right! And he is talking to experts in behavioral science to figure that out! What will make them believe what I'm doing is right? How do we have a guy who is looking into the psychology of behavior to image himself as doing the right thing?

One of the things that psychology team has noticed is that people mostly aren't able to put big numbers in context. Do you think? It's no coincidence that Robert Gibbs can come out one week and tell you that $8 billion is not a lot of money and the next week play the $100 million is a lot card. They have found that if you propose a bill that is $10 million, $10 billion or $10 trillion, people react the exact same way. Yes, smart people like you will catch it, but the rest that are just hoping for change, those dolts, they don't see it. They are going to be the ones that take away, you know, why are these people protesting taxes at tea parties? Don't they know that 95% of all Americans are getting a tax cut? It's a mind game, and it's a mind game that your tax dollars are paying to be played against you. Who do you think is paying for the behavioral scientists? One of the things that this is Obama in his own words: One of the things that everybody here is mindful of as we move forward is dealing with this extraordinary economic crisis. We have a deficit and a confidence gap. When it comes to the American people, we have got to earn their trust. They have to feel confident that their dollars are being spent wisely. Is it a coincidence that he says they've got to feel confident that their dollars are spent wisely as opposed to "We have to spend their dollars wisely"? These people don't care. They don't look at that dollar that you worked for and sent in and paid somebody to find out how many dollars you need to send in. They don't care. They don't associate that dollar with your time, your energy or your hard work: They should be ashamed of themselves every time they spend a dollar. Every time they spend a dollar, they should ask, this is a sacred trust. Is that the best, most effective way we can spend that dollar? Should we spend that dollar? Why not just earn our trust by actually doing trustworthy things instead of meeting with behavioral scientists to trick us into trusting you. All you have to do is listen to this man's comments. You listen to this man's comments and you realize that the $100 million cut isn't even a cut. Where is anyone in the media explaining this to you? Quote: In the next few weeks we'll expect to cut at least 100 current programs in the federal budget I wish there was a period there so we can free up those dollars in order to put them to use in more critical areas like healthcare, education, energy or foreign policy. They're not cutting this to save money. They are cutting these things and shifting those dollars to foreign policy apparatus? What the hell is a foreign policy apparatus? He's cutting it from one area, turning right around and spending it in another. How is that a cut exactly?

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
