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.

Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee Robert Francis "Beto" O’Rourke's disgusting and obviously-staged political stunt during a press conference about the Robb Elementary School massacre is just another of the many ways the man is "human trash," Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere agreed on the radio program Thursday.

"Beto is human trash. He is scum. He is the scum of the earth, the lowest form of humanity our society can produce," Stu said in response to a video clip of O'Rourke heckling Gov. Greg Abbott in the middle of an update on the tragic mass killing in Uvalde. "This was obviously staged from the beginning ... clearly planned. Even CBS News pointed it out it was blatantly a staged event. And this guy [O'Rourke], because he wants more power and more money, decided that this event was about him. He wanted to make the [deaths] of 19 children and teachers all about Beto O'Rourke because he is human scum. He is the worst form of life imaginable on this Earth."

Democrats like O'Rourke have been quick to use the tragic deaths of 19 children to advance their own pro-gun law political agendas, particularly "red flag" laws that would empower courts to take guns away from "potentially dangerous" people

"You want a solution? Stop selling AR-15s in the state of Texas. You want a solution? Have universal background checks. We don't have them. You want a solution? Red flag laws or extreme risk protection orders, which stop a shooting before it happens," O'Rourke shouted after being escorted out of the press conference.

Glenn wasn't buying O'Rourke's "righteous indignation," especially as his own resurfaced writings qualify as the "ultimate red flag for any red flag law." As a teen, O'Rourke wrote about hacking, overthrowing the government, and, most disturbingly, murdering children by running over them with his car.

Glenn read an excerpt from a fiction O'Rourke wrote when he was 15 years old:

[O]ne day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.

As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.

"Dangerous, right? Nothing good's going to come of this. According to Reuters, those are the teenage writings of Beto O'Rourke," Glenn said. "The state of Texas should be very aware and not allow [O'Rourke] to buy a gun because of this. This guy, this guy, and his righteous indignation — give it a rest, bud. Give it a rest."

Texas AG Ken Paxton says gun laws are NOT the answer, urges schools to arm teachers

In the wake of the unspeakably grievous mass murder at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, many on the left are calling for increased gun control measures, but without specifying exactly what legislation could have prevented the horrifying event. Attorney General Ken Paxton says gun laws are not the answer. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail specific measures he believes could stop similar school atrocities in the future: arming teachers.

Paxton told Glenn that Texas has already put laws in place that allow schools to opt in to training and arming teachers as either a marshal or under the guardian program.

"We passed laws when I was in the Texas Senate, I think it was 2013, that would have helped greatly. There's no way that law enforcement can get to every location as fast as they would need to," Paxton said.

Glenn interjected, "I'll tell you, I went to a school where my son was playing football ... and there were signs all over. 'Beware. Teachers are armed. We take the Second Amendment and the protection of our students seriously.' It was so clear — not doing anything here. That's the way to do it."

"Yes," Paxton agreed. "I think that's the way it should be. I mean, these people [shooters], they know they're safe, at least until law enforcement gets there, to accomplish their goals. And we're going to keep seeing this happen until we decide as a state ... to protect these kids," he added.

"It's ridiculous for the Biden administration to suggest that this kid who decided to violate the murder laws would [think], 'Oh. Wait a minute, there's a gun law. I can't do this. I wouldn't violate gun laws.' It's law-abiding citizens that follow the law," Paxton continued. "Second, we have a fentanyl crisis that the Biden administration has presumably invited and we've had over 100, 000 people that overdosed and died from fentanyl. [...] Why isn't the Biden administration so concerned about the hundred and something thousand people that died from overdoses because they opened up the border and allowed fentanyl to come across?"

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Glenn Beck addressed the incomprehensibly tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on the radio program Wednesday, saying it's time to stop with the politics, from both sides, and focus on healing a nation that is tearing itself apart.

"It pains me to think about the political garbage that has happened in the last 12 hours," Glenn began. "I believe that we are on the verge of losing our nation, and the reason why we're about to lose our nation is the same reason some kid walked into an elementary school and shot and killed people. It's not the guns ... it's our society."

Glenn called the tragedies plaguing our nation' —kids shooting kids, committing suicide, dying from fentanyl, joining gangs, and suffering from depression and loneliness — are symptoms of a greater sickness.

"Where's the value of human life? The hatred that is being poured down our throats, the class division, the racism — make no mistake, it is intentional," he stated. "The best way to destroy a nation is to cut it apart. ... In our society, where are the ethics? What are ethics? It's your truth versus my truth. There is no absolute truth. And in a world where there is no truth, who gets to be God? Well, it depends on which group you're in I guess."

Glenn said America’s underlying problem is "a rotting in our soul" and until we "live in a nation that is willing to even recognize that there is something bigger than the self, and it has nothing to do with government, we'll never fix this problem."

"Let's not make this about Democrats and Republicans. Let's just make this about what the hell is going on because everything in our society is falling apart," he said. "And until you're willing to have that conversation, the rest of it is bullcrap."
