Glenn Beck: Eye on the Stimulus - light sensors

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: March to Socialism, it's our stimulus package. Light sensors, another in our series watching the stimulus or whatever it is we call it. You had the sounder, Dan?

VOICE: News look, microscope laser focused alert investigative watch, lots of Googling, Glenn Beck's eye on the stimulus 2009.

GLENN: Okay, our last check in on the stimulus we learned that when the government says they spent $24 million on an apartment building greening, they really only spent $59,000 and another $23,941,000 were left over. Nobody knows where that went. But don't worry about it. I'm sure it's gone to weatherstripping or something. Well, here's the latest. Can't wait to hear Robert Gibbs and how he's going to deflect this criticism. This again from Jake Tapper, my favorite reporter at ABC, my hero. The latest project that is saving America, number 7, quote: The New York state's veterans home at St. Albans in Jamaica   I'm sorry, Jamaica New York   is using $109.5 million in recovery act spending to install more efficient motors, variable speed drive units, lighting ballasts, lighting sensors, daylight sensors and to replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. $109 million, veterans home, New York State, $109 million, light bulbs, light sensors.

Now, maybe it's just me, but the $109 million for one veterans home seems like you could, you know, make it akin to Saddam's palace for that kind of cash rather than just, you know, giving it new light bulbs and lighting sensors, but maybe it's just me. I haven't purchased a lot of lighting sensors lately. In fact, I've got an issue with lighting sensors. There's a reason people usually, you know, use them outside for their outside lights. Do you really want the light to come on every time you enter and exit a room? Do you, really? What if you're reading and someone else leaves the room and you're just like hanging out, light goes off? Then you have to stand up and jump around like an idiot to get the light to go back? Oh, you don't think this happens? It happens in my office because I can't disable the light sensors! Sounds a bit high to have all of that calisthenic going on for $109 million but as it turns out, it's too high. The government was again lying about the amount spent on one place. In actually St. Albans is slated to receive only $3 million for the new light bulbs and light sensors. The government was only off this time by $106 million.

Here's what Representative Gregory Meeks, a Democrat, told Jake Tapper of ABC. He said, quote: That 100, that's not accurate. The $109 million mentioned in the White House report was given to the state for all VA facilities. Yeah, love this. They can't   the government can't even get their transparency reports to be transparent. Back in a second.

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.

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."
