March to Socialism: Out of Money


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

is now available as an audio book...

GLENN: President Obama was recently asked a tough question. Yes, believe it or not they will happen once in a while. The interviewer, C Span hosts Steve Scully, asking about soaring trillion dollar deficits and said at what point do we run out of money? Here's what Barack Obama said.

VOICE: You know the number's $1.8 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion. At what point do we run out of money?

GLENN: Well, the way we print and spend money, I would expect President Obama just to respond, well, we're not going to, et cetera, et cetera. Here's what he said.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we're out of money now.

GLENN: So the hang on. This is critical. The Messiah knows that we're out of money now. That's weird, you know, that he's aware of that because he's spending trillions of dollars. That's like going to the mall and your wife is in the Prada store and you are like, honey, at what point do we run out of money? And she's got all these purses and everything and she's bringing them up to the counter and she's like, oh, honey, we're out of money now. Why are we in the Prada store then? Apparently Obama knew he said something that scenario at the Prada store, something true but crazy. As Mr. Brilliant politician man, he should have known you can't just say it that way. So he started to backtrack.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We're operating in deep deficits not caused by any decisions we've made on healthcare so far.

GLENN: Okay. So that's your wife standing in the Prada store: Honey, at what point do we run out of money? Oh, my gosh, we are I mean, we're out of money now. But not because of any bad decisions we've made in the past on buying purses or anything like that, no. It's not our fault, you see. I love this explanation. Not caused by any decisions that we've made on health, so far. He doesn't even consider that all of the other spending has contributed to the problem of, you know, being out of money. So in other words, this might be the first time your wife had a purse she doesn't have a purse problem. She hasn't been spending money on purses. She's been spending it on shoes. "Honey, we're out of money now but not because of the purses." "Yeah, I know, but because you were spending it on shoes." "Honey, we haven't been spending it on purses. If I just buy enough purses, then we'll be okay."

Here's Barack Obama once again.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: This is as a consequence of the crisis that we've seen and, in fact, our failure to make some good decisions on healthcare over the last several decades.

GLENN: See, the problem with the deficit is we didn't have enough spending over the past several decades on the right stuff. If we would have only given away free healthcare to every citizen, visitor, illegal alien, exchange student, maybe, then just maybe everything would be okay. Is anybody buying this? How? I'd love an explanation. I mean, what would have been a good decision in the past? Should we have bankrupt our country back then? It's socialism. Socialism. Not happy with the speed which we're destroying our country; we can do it even faster. Let's step on the gas and accelerate right into that red brick wall at the end of the road we like to call problem solved. What? We're not speeding out of control anymore. Isn't it great?

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.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
