Glenn Beck: The Improbable Truth About Politicians

 


Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

When I look at the news everyday, I wonder if it's even possible for us to unplug from common sense any more than we already have.

The one thing is that when you step back and look at the big picture, it's obvious that our politicians are either completely incompetent or dangerously evil.

Let's start in California, which, as of Wednesday, will be issuing IOUs to everyone from state contractors to college students to the disabled; $3 billion in July alone. That may work for Schwarzenegger or the weasels in Sacramento, but can construction workers or college students eat an IOU?

At least half a dozen other states face similar troubles, including Arizona, which faces a shortfall equal to almost a third of its budget.

But instead of doing the common sense thing (bringing expenses in line with revenues), the Obama administration wants these states to expand their services, particularly when it comes to health care.

You say, "But Glenn, aren't many states pushing to scale back or kill proposals to expand Medicaid?"

Maybe, but do you really think that's going to happen? Here in New York City, a third of all residents are enrolled in the program, a number that's gone way up in recent years. What politician has the spine to eliminate entitlements? And have you asked yourself if it makes any sense to push for the greatest expansion in history, even as Medicare runs out of money in eight years?

Similarly, how does it make sense when you're out of money to go to the Fed for help? It's just a giant, privately run-corporation that causes bubbles, can flood the market with money and collapse our dollar while answering to no one. How does it make common sense to not see the Fed's books? Ron Paul's "audit the Fed" bill has a majority in the House, yet Barney Frank is sitting on the bill in the House Financial Services Committee. Why? What kind of power is Barney Frank going to amass if he can enable and protect the seven most powerful people on the Federal Reserve board?

Then there's the drastically different ways our president handled two anti-American presidents. First, Iran, where we've been trying to get the ayatollah and his cronies out of there since 1979.


They rig an election, where protesters are beaten and killed in broad daylight, and Obama says nothing for two weeks. Why?

Then in Honduras, where the president tries to shred the Constitution and hijack the Republic, President Obama jumps in with Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega and the Castro regime in demanding that the Honduras president be restored to power. Doesn't that constitute the exact meddling he said we shouldn't engage in when it comes to Iran?

And finally there's cap-and-trade, a complete reshaping of America. It's a $4 trillion, 1,300-page bill that hardly anyone has read that's supposed to stop the polar bears from drowning. Few seem to even be considering the life-changing ramifications, if any dissenting opinion inside the government is silenced.

We'll hear from the man at the EPA who wrote the suppressed report that shows carbon dioxide has nothing to do with the Earth's temperature. You decide if he's crazy or if he's just not saying what the administration wants to hear.

Please, please tell me I'm looking at all of this wrong. Write me, call me, tweet me. I would love to know how all of this adds up to incompetence instead of evil.

But I'm scared I'm not wrong. I go back to "The Sign of the Four", where Sherlock Holmes says, "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

The truth, however improbable, is that these aren't dumb people leading us down this road; they aren't randomly throwing darts or flipping coins. Because if they were at least once in a while a dart would hit something that was good for the country. So we must eliminate that.

So what does that leave on the table? I don't know yet, but whatever it is seems to be improbable. Unfortunately, we need to start looking at that.

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:

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.
