Glenn Beck: Billy Mays more credible than Congress



RELATED STORY


'Infomercial King' Billy Mays dead

GLENN: I don't need all of them. Just give me one.

STU: I think his most important ad ‑‑ I'm not going to attempt to play it here. God only knows if any of this stuff's going to work. But his most important ad I believe was, of course, his attempt to do what Barack Obama's doing and solve our health insurance problem.

GLENN: Go ahead. It's not working.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

MAYS: Hi, Billy Mays here to share with you the most important product I have ever endured, access to affordable health insurance for everyone. If you are one of the 47 million uninsured, call now. We can help. And if you are one of the millions dissatisfied with the current health insurance ‑‑

GLENN: Stop just a second.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: I think this guy ‑‑ turn that off, Stu. I think this guy is, he's absolutely more credible or was more credible than any member of congress, I really do. I get my healthcare ‑‑ that's what they should have done: Hi, Billy Mays for cap and trade. I think they should have gone down the cap and trade road. I think he should have been the pitchman for congress. Their approval ratings probably would have gone up. And you could have everybody watching TV in the middle of the night and they're like, I don't know, that cap and trade thing, I think we should try it; I saw a 30 minute commercial just last night. It was great, I couldn't sleep and I think cap and trade, I think I have to have it. And he's, already he's cut from the same cloth as Barack Obama: And if you act now, I'll also...

STU: But you must act now.

GLENN: But you must act now.

STU: Don't worry about the consequences.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Act now.

GLENN: Six payments, eight payments, whatever it is. But act now. I think ‑‑

STU: I think this is a good analogy.

GLENN: I'm just saying.


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

STU: If you remember Al Gore spent, what, hundreds of millions of dollars on the widest, what was it, mass ‑‑ what was the wording, Glenn, of this? Mass ‑‑

GLENN: Campaign?

STU: Sort of mass ‑‑

GLENN: Indoctrination?

STU: Sure. And whenever he was doing that and he spent hundreds of millions of dollars and the polls actually went down after he did it. If Billy Mays were pitching it, not only would the approval ratings go up but they would sell a ton of Oxiclean. At the same time.

GLENN: I'm just ‑‑ hi, Billy Mays for the environment. Environment dirty? Air not clean? Use Oxiclean. I think we could do it. It would make as much sense as the cap and trade.

By the way, we have the numbers and the names of the people that voted for cap and trade. Let me just start with the eight GOPers that went ahead and said yes to cap and trade. Here are the people that you need to campaign against. Who would have thought Sonny Bono's wife would have gone bad, huh? Mary Bono Mack from California, she's done. Mike Castle, Delaware ‑‑ see if you notice a trend here. Mary Bono Mack voted yes for cap and trade as a Republican. She's from California. Mike Castle voted yes. He's a Republican from Delaware. Mark Kirk from Illinois, he's a Republican. Leonard Lance, he's a Republican from New Jersey. Frank LoBiondo, he's from New Jersey. He's a Republican. John McHugh from New York. Dave Reichert from Washington State and Chris Smith from New Jersey. Look at that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Washington State, California, New Jersey, New York, Illinois. That's where all the GOP support came from.

STU: And remember with these eight people who voted for this ‑‑

GLENN: They only needed one, right?

STU: Well, I mean, what was it, 219‑212? They needed more than one, right? The rumor is, of course, if they didn't have some of these Republicans voting for them, the Democrats would have switched which just shows you what a bunch of dirtbags all these people are.

GLENN: They said they made deals with Nancy Pelosi that said if you need the vote, I'll vote for it but if not, I'm going to vote against it which means to me throw them all out. Throw every single one of them out. But if you've been reading Common Sense, you know how difficult that is now. You know how almost impossible, because of the way both Republicans and Democrats have structured the system. They have played games. It's ‑‑ you know, we've talked about gerrymandering before and it's almost like this, "Yeah, the gerrymandering," and nobody really understands what it is. We lay it all out in Common Sense, and it is the reason why we have ‑‑ have you ever noticed it's like Bible‑thumping preachers with guns, you know, on both hips or it's on fire ‑‑ it's liberals that make ‑‑ that embarrass Jane Fonda they are so far left. How does that happen? I don't know those people. Do you? It's because of gerrymandering. Literally there are places in our country where you can ‑‑ there's a street, and half of the street is for the ‑‑ is for one congressional district and the other half is for another congressional district. Our founding fathers did not do it that way. They built the system so people would have to have a mix of people in there, it would become ‑‑ everybody would be more moderate but instead we have these sharp left and right because they've gerrymandered their district. It's almost impossible to get these guys out. And we've got to get them out. And if you look at the analysis of who voted for it, for cap and trade, it wasn't ‑‑ I mean, we have all of the names. You want to know what you need to do? You need to campaign against these people. You need to make sure that these people send a message to their colleagues in the Senate, "Don't vote for cap and trade." Now's the time to do it. Because they voted and they think you're going to forget. "Make sure they understand you're blanketing with flyers. I want you to know this is what your congressman just did." This is so critical because ‑‑ we'll get into it later ‑‑ not because of the insanity that is in this bill but the fact that it was all special interest and, more importantly, it is the structure. We've got to stop paying attention to these bills the way we've been doing it. We need to look at the structure. The power is being grabbed left and right. The system is being overwhelmed. They are not 1300 pages for no reason. They are 1300 pages with an additional 300 pages because they are burying things. What is it that they are burying? They are burying structure changes. They are taking our republic and they are changing the structure of it. They are adding new departments and new overseers, people that answer to the president, people that don't answer to congress, people that don't have to be confirmed anymore. That's what's happening. It's not just about cap and trade. Again, this is an illusion. This guy is, Barack Obama ‑‑ you know, I had somebody tell me this. I had somebody tell me this and I don't know if I've said this on the air and I don't know if I've credited him. So I better not because I don't remember how it was said to me if not at this point. But somebody who you would respect said to me, "We are looking at a president that is the closest to Thomas Jefferson we've ever had." And I said, wow, that's a slam on Thomas Jefferson. And he said, no, he understands architecture. He knows what he's doing. This guy is very, very smart. And I agree with him.

Now, I don't know if he's the architect of this, but somebody is an architect of ‑‑ this is not happenstance. There are massive changes coming our way, and people don't really understand it yet. But massive changes have happened already.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

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:
