Glenn Beck: Big Stamp


America's March to Socialism: Why we're one step closer to giant missile parades

is now available as an audio book...

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

GLENN: Well, when a business is in decline, any decent CEO knows there's only one thing you can do to turn things around and that's say it with me raise prices. Right? I mean, if people weren't buying, you know, at the low, low price, maybe they will take the bait on the newly jacked up price. An even better strategy is to make your product nosebleed expensive, then consumers will think the product is just so good, it has to be that good because it's so expensive.

All right, if this business logic sounds a tad flawed, guess what? You'd be correct. If you said this was the logic of the government run programs, specifically the United States Postal Service, you are super smart and you'd also be correct. Facing a $1.5 billion deficit again and mail volume falling by 7.5 billion pieces of mail, or 14%, the U.S. postal service has no other choice but to announce it's jacking up the price of stamps. Boy, doesn't it seem just like yesterday the post office said they lost a billion dollars and had to jack up the price of stamps? Actually, well, it wasn't yesterday. It was just in the third quarter of last year. And then the year before they did the same thing and the year before that as well. Big stamp has raised prices four straight years now and they still haven't figured out how to balance the budget sheets. One possible thing that they are that would explain this is maybe they are focusing on the wrong things. I mean, what actual real life company would solve the long lines checkout problem by, I'm not kidding you removing the clocks on the walls in hopes that people don't realize they've been there for a long time? That's what the postal service did in 2007. They took 33,000 clocks down off the walls. Quote: We want people to focus on the postal service and not the clock, said a postal spokesperson.

Okay. I don't think that's going to work. There is this thing in some areas of the country called a watch. Yeah. Or a clock on your cellphone. Or just a general jeez, I've been standing here for an awful long time, feeling that happens, not in all parts of the country. Only a government and a government run company with mandated by law monopolies would think like this. They are no bad that not only do the customers hate stopping by the post office, postal workers themselves have gone berserk enough times to actually have a term named after them called "Going postal." And they're worried about the clocks on the wall? How about the sniper on the roof? Does anybody doubt that FedEx would be able to turn a profit running our mail system? Not only is big stamp running a horrible company and costing taxpayers billions, big stamp is managing to tank the business and price gouge. Compare its rate increases to that of big oil over the last 90 years. The average retail price of gasoline has increased 8 1/2 times, 25.5 cents per gallon to what it is now today, $2.16 per gallon. While stamps have gone up 21 times. They were 2 cents in 1919, 44 cents as of today. If stamps increased at the rate of big oil prices, a first class stamp today would be 17 cents. If stamps increase at the rate of consumer prices, first class stamps would be 25 cents. It's so weird that big oil companies still manage to make record profits each year despite not price gouging. It's weird, isn't it? If big oil wants to improve its image in the world, perhaps it should start actually... maybe they should just start losing money. That's what the post office does. Nobody seems to have a problem with that. On the bright side, the least the federal government the least thing the federal government will do is actually run it like a business. I have a feeling, you know, they will never run it as a good business, but they will never socialize it, either. They will never completely just take, you know, take over everything like they've done the post office, then healthcare. They never do that with big oil. They would never do that, right?

VOICE: And guess what this liberal will be all about? This liberal will be all about socializing

GLENN: Wait a minute.

VOICE: Will be about... basically

GLENN: Yes?

VOICE: Taking over and the government running all of your companies.

GLENN: Oh. Okay, yeah, I take that back. It probably will do that real soon.

VOICE: Just in case you are not getting enough socialism from Washington, try Glenn's new audio book, the March to Socialism, available in bookstores everywhere tomorrow. Free copies not available as part of the stimulus package.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
