Glenn Beck: $18 million...for a website?



See the site in need of an $18-million makeover...

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: Got this fancy new website, apparently can't do it. We're keeping a close eye on the stimulus.

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

GLENN: Yes, that's right. The website that President Obama, you know, Mr. Hip, Mr. "Down with the kids," Mr. "Using the Internet thingamajig" to raise bajillions of dollars, the thing that he set up to track the stimulus isn't really working real well. The site I can't remember the name. Hang on. Let me Joe Biden, what's the name of this thing?

VOICE: By the way, do you know the website?

BIDEN: You know, I'm embarrassed. Do you know the website number? You know, I should it in front of me and I don't.

VOICE: All right.

BIDEN: I'm actually embarrassed.

VOICE: I'm going to call your office directly, too, and get it later.

BIDEN: It is recovery.gov, recovery.gov.

VOICE: Is that up and running already?

BIDEN: That's up and running.

VOICE: All right.

GLENN: Yeah. Recovery.gov. Fabulous website. He's embarrassed because he couldn't remember the name. I would have been embarrassed because he said what's the number, but that's just me. I went there today, for example, and I learned that Americans are getting you are getting a really big slice of the stimulus pie in the form of tax credits. They also had a really nice pie chart and everything. It was dazzling. Plus I learned that Americans will be reaping the benefits of the stimulus package to the tune of $400 per person. I know. I know, I'm thinking it, too. Goodbye, recession; let the good times roll because we're almost there! But it couldn't all be good news, could it? Apparently despite the fancy pie charts on recovery.gov, it's not working. Now some of the stimulus money will go toward a complete redesign of recovery.gov. Thankfully with all of President Obama's connections that he made during his fancy, you know, high tech Internet campaign thingamajig, he was able to work out a really good deal. It's only going to cost you, the American taxpayer, $18 million to revamp the site. $18 million to redesign an existing website. Now, I'm not a website developer but I can create a website from my Mac, and I know I'm just being cynical again. I'm just an Obama hater. That's what it is. It must be his race or something. I'm not sure. I'll try to look for the positive angle on this story... um... um... oh, oh, I think I have it! The company doing the redesign doesn't have a history of being, you know, awarded Halliburton, you know, no bid kind of government contracts. Hang on, I'm being hang on just a second. Yeah, the company is Smartronics. Out of $47 million in federal contracts, only $132,000 came from competition bids. Okay, so that's hang on. Let me... oh! Oh, oh, I know! At least the company selected doesn't have a shady, you know, Dick Cheney/Halliburton type connection. No, hang on just a second. I'm just being... Smartronics, are you sure? They are a steady contributor to House majority leader Steny Hoyer. So oh, oh, I've got it! I've got it! At least it doesn't cost $50 million for the new improved pie charts. That's okay, it is a government project and the jury is still out if they can, you know, go $32 million over budget on a website which I think they can, but let's have a little optimism here.

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.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
