Glenn Beck: Socialism - TARP, Stimulus fraud

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: I just look at the federal highway trust fund needs a bailout. From who? It's the federal program. What do you mean? Aye yi yi. Well, here we go, the FBI is now bracing themselves for the next wave of financial fraud cases. This according to the director of the FBI. The agency is looking at 1300 security fraud cases, more than 580 corporate fraud cases and now they are preparing for massive fraud related to... TARP and stimulus money. Of course, in order to find the scams, we would have to find the money, and currently the FBI is, quote, working to track where the federal money from TARP and stimulus is going.

Hold on just a second. They're working on trying to track it? Why don't they just are we not printing checks? Are we sending people checks! Can't we just everybody just send a check. Quote: With billions of dollars at stake from the purchase of troubled assets to improvement and infrastructure, healthcare, energy and education, even a small percentage of fraud would result in substantial taxpayer losses. This is why you keep it in private hands. The people can spend their money better than a giant government. But I just want to get the history straight on this one. Back in the Nineties both the Republicans and the Democrats got their grimy little hands all tangled up in the mortgage industry because they wanted to get more people into houses. Remember Barney Frank? "There is a housing crisis." Uh huh, not the one we're talking about now, that poor people couldn't buy houses. That ended up obviously backfiring because the mortgage industry collapsed and people are defaulting all over the place. So the government swooped in, tells America that it has to pass this wonderful stimulus and TARP bill in order to fix the problem, a problem they themselves created.

So now because of the inevitable massive fraud that the FBI says is taking place, the FBI and other agencies have to devote millions and millions of dollars in resources to stop and solve a problem that stemmed from the solution to a problem that the government created. No, seriously, I'm feeling great about the biggest expansion of government in modern history. All of our problems are going to be solved well, not well, those problems are going to be solved and then there's going to create other problems but then they are going to swoop in and solve those until there's some sort of a scandal, but they will solve that one as well all of the problems over and over and over again, will be solved.

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."
