March to Socialism - Hudson River tunnel project

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: Well, yesterday we launched and today we continue our new series that keeps a close eye on your stimulus money.

VOICE: Microscope laser focused alert investigative watch, lots of googling, Glenn Beck's eye on the stimulus 2009.

GLENN: Yes, 2009 eye on the stimulus. Shovels are finally hitting the ground in the nation's newest and largest transportation project, the Trans-Hudson River tunnel project. $8.7 billion is all this is going to cost. Now, there are some cynics I'm sure there are saying, "What? Why do we... why do we need a tunnel?" Yes, we do have tunnels, sure, but some commuters will shave 15 minutes off their commute time. For a year $8.7 billion, 15 minutes, for some commuters. That sounds like a good deal, don't you think? So how did this massive project come about? How was it decided? I mean, Joe Biden couldn't have pushed this one through because is it a car tunnel or a train tunnel? Oh, it's a... train tunnel. Anyway, so it's stimulus money. We've got to spend it some place. Actually only $3 billion of the $8.7 billion needed for the project are coming from the federal government. The rest of the funds are coming from various state agencies in... wait for it, wait for it... New York and New Jersey. Now, last I checked, those states were broke. You know, aren't they the states that are also, like California, "We're going to have to fire all the teachers. If you don't raise this tax, all the kids are going to grow up to be soldiers, they are going to be that dumb. It's amazing how dumb they are going to be. You won't ever be able to read a Stephen King book. Yeah, that dumb if we got to raise the tax." Weren't those the states? We're looking everywhere we can to make up that $1.6 billion budget gap that we got. We're looking everywhere. We're going to have to start executing cops. I'd like to know, is there anyone in the government who said something in discussions like, "Hey, you know, I love the tunnel and everything, but the budget gap, do you think, maybe it's the time to build a tunnel?" Obviously not because that would make too much sense. Here's an idea. Don't build the tunnel. Sit on the train for an extra 15 minutes. I know it will be an inconvenience to Mr. Joe Biden, but what do you say you don't worry about that 15 minutes until we don't bankrupt the country. There you go. $5.7 billion saved. Thank you very much. Of course, that's not how the government looks at it. They see the wonderful new jobs that are going to be created, 6,000 new jobs to be exact. 6,000 new jobs, by the way, if you do the math, that's only $1.45 million per job. Wow. What a value. Government's driving a hard bargain, aren't they? Of course, the government project, as government projects never do, will go over budget. It doesn't okay, sometimes they go a little bit over budget, but it doesn't matter. The government is predicting that after the tunnel is completed, in 2017, after the tunnel is completed, it will create take a guess how many jobs. 6,000 to build it. How many new jobs will it create afterwards? Government estimate. Come on, they are creating new jobs. 4500 new jobs. Oh, no, sorry. 45,000 new jobs! In a tunnel! I'm sorry. 45,000 new jobs? I've been through tunnels before. I don't really see anybody in the tunnels. Are they going to intentionally build it with leaks so you have to have like a bucket by grade inside? What is the 45,000 new jobs going to be created with this tunnel. Wow, what a gig that is. Maybe a tad optimistic but maybe they are holding the tunnel up. I'm not sure. Wait, wait, what am I thinking? Of course, it's the federal government. They have a 400:1 hiring ratio compared to the private sector. So, of course, it's 45,000. Enjoy your extra 15 minutes, New Jersey commuters. Well, not all of you. Just some of you.

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
