Glenn Beck: This President is worse than Herbert Hoover!

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

is now available as an audio book...

VOICE: In a way Obama's standing above the country, above the world. He's sort of God.

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: That is the editor of Newsweek magazine saying that on MSNBC.

Well, yesterday the unemployment rate, we talked about it, told you that it shot up to 9.4, already higher than the White House economic team's worst case scenario and according to the White House estimates, if we didn't pass the stimulus package, we would never have a lower unemployment rate, okay? At least the White House now is admitting overselling the stimulus. They said worst case scenario, 8% unemployment. Quote: At the time our forecast seemed reasonable. Joe Biden's top economic advisor Jared Bernstein said, explaining the White House underestimated the scope of the recession. Now looking back it was clearly too optimistic.

Wait a minute, can we then look back at all of the other things that you've based, you know, the spending on? Opposite, my bad. Sorry, got that one wrong. Well, thankfully it wasn't a big mistake. It was just 3/4 of a trillion dollar mistake. Happens all the time. Economy has shed 1.6 million since the stimulus measure was signed in February, far overshadowing White House announcements estimating the effort has saved 150,000 jobs. You know, I just heard an expert for the White House say this morning, "Well, you can't say that the stimulus... the stimulus isn't really into effect yet." Okay, all right. So you can't tear him down because we've lost 1.6 million jobs since the stimulus passed, we can't say that it's not working because it really hasn't had a chance yet. Okay, but it's had enough of a chance to create 150,000 jobs? I'm sorry, not create. Save 150,000 jobs? I'd just like to take a moment to do the obligatory, "Imagine that George W. Bush did this" observation. Remember John McCain was obliterated for saying fundamentals of the economy are still sound. Yet here's the president of the United States as the country is losing 1.6 million jobs since he passed the world saving stimulus and he can come out with a straight face while his wife is shopping in boutiques in Paris and say that he saved 150,000 jobs. That's great, Mr. President. That's still a net loss of 1.45 million jobs even if you you know, if I give you credit for the 150,000 created I'm sorry, saved, a number that even the associated press says is so murky, it can never be verified. What a surprise, from the administration that is the pinnacle of transparency. Also remember George W. Bush's first term. He came into office, dot com bubble burst, their huge scandals with Enron shook confidence in America. Then we had the 9/11 hit. Job losses hit $2.6 million, and the press was saying that he was the worst president since Herbert Hoover. Do you remember that? Since this president has come into office, he's lost 1.6 million I'm sorry, that's not even since he's been in office. That's since the stimulus package. Bush implemented massive tax cuts despite Democratic repeatedly cheering him and cheering him on to be the worst president since Herbert Hoover. He actually ended his first term with a net gain of 119,000 jobs. Highest unemployment rate was 6.4. Do you remember the media congratulating him on that? "Job well done. He could have lost so many more jobs." No, no, no. Now back to President Obama. Media's not pulling out the Herbert Hoover references. Isn't that weird? Paul Krugman who's been slurping down the Kool Aid for a while excused the massive job losses like this, quote: Things seem to be getting worse more slowly. Wow. There seems to be reason to think that we're stabilizing. Oh, well, that's great. Paul, thank you for pointing that. It's still getting worse but not as fast. That is good news.

President Obama told people not to worry because as the president says, quote: We're now in a position to accelerate, and we're going to create 600,000 new jobs by the end of summer. Again, I'm not a Nobel Prize winning economist like Paul Krugman but even if he does create or save 600,000 new jobs, that's still a net loss of jobs. How about you stop the job loss? How about that one, Mr. President? There is some actual hope. At least people don't appear to be as stupid as the media is. Disapproval numbers on Obama's handling of the economy have jumped from 30% to 42%. That is his negative ratings on the economy. Luckily, though, he's going to get everything he wants before enough people catch on and stop him. Remember, never waste a crisis.

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."
