Glenn Beck: Socialism - Stimulus saves day?


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

is now available as an audio book...

GLENN: Well, back on March 6th, the media was all atwitter from the plethora of success stories resulting from President Obama's $787 billion stimulus package. President Obama proclaimed jobs all across Ohio will now be saved because of this recovery plan. The Huffington Post dutifully followed their savior's lead. Obama dressed as Columbus police recruits saved by stimulus. According to the Huffington Post, Dateline Washington. President Barack Obama can point at at least 25 jobs saved in Ohio's capital. Obama traveled to Columbus to speak at the graduation ceremony for 25 police recruits who owe their jobs to the economic recovery bill he signed into law just less than three weeks ago. Obama also said this of the stimulus, said it includes aid to state and local governments to prevent firefighters and police recruits, recruits like the ones in Columbus, Ohio who were told that instead of being sworn in as officers, they would be let go. Well, it's been 100 days since the signing of the stimulus package. You know, the one they had to signed or else America would die. Well, what happened since then? Since the cameras were turned off and the president flew home and nobody's watching Columbus, Ohio. Well, I shouldn't say no one is watching Columbus, Ohio. We are. Has there been a flood of success stories like Columbus? Jeez, what's happened? Unemployment in January, 7.5, February 8.1. March 8.5. April, 8.9. Good thing we passed that stimulus package. America would have really been struggling, huh? How are things going in Columbus, Ohio with those new officers that are on the street? Have we thanked President Obama for their jobs? The Columbus dispatch says if voters turn down a proposed income tax hike in August, nearly 300 police officers will lose their job. The 25 new officers who shook the president's hand will be among the first to go. Wait a minute. So is that how the stimulus works? You dump billions of taxpayer dollars into the states to save them but it still doesn't work unless local taxes are also jacked up? I mean, I thought the stimulus funds were paying for those jobs. Why does Ohio need another tax hike to pay for the police officers that the stimulus funds just paid for? Well, no matter what, President Obama got his photo op that day with the police officers which included this touching moment, looking at the graduates receiving their diplomas, Obama said, quote, this economy needs your employment to keep it running. I look into their eyes and I see their badges today and I know we did the right thing, end quote. No word on if Obama's planning on apologizing to the officers and to America for wasting taxpayers' funds on something that the City of Columbus was going to be forced to pay for and should be paying for itself anyway. And wasting our money on something Press Secretary Robert Gibbs now admits "Is only temporary."

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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

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.
