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.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
