Glenn Beck: Resort getaway courtesy of Social Security?


Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: I don't know about you, but I want to feel secure and I do feel secure. In fact, I feel so secure that I haven't saved a dime in my entire life because I have the ultimate security blanket called Social Security. It is so great, I'm a positive guy, you know. You listen to the show. You know how positive I am on the future. Anyway, I try to avoid all the nay Sayers who are always complaining: Oh, Glenn, in six years Social Security, we'll be paying out more in benefits than it collects in taxes. Oh, boohoo, cry me a river. We're going to grow our way out of this. And then the people say, "Oh, the fun will be depleted by 2037." Okay, all right. Sure, it's true, the Social Security trustees are saying the program is broke, quote/unquote. But what do they know, you know? Besides, 2037, do you know how many things we could invent by 2037? That's a long way off. There's plenty of time to fix this and that's exactly what the Social Security Administration is doing. Take, for example, the training conference they just held at a high end Arizona resort. Of course, the rightwing media is going to complain, "Oh, it cost the taxpayers $700,000." Yeah, I know, I know. Yeah, we shouldn't take any spa vacations or have our conferences in resorts, you know. Only a rightwinger that would, you know, be in the Oval Office would say something like that. Then they will also say, "Why do you need..." and I'm not kidding..." to listen to a speech on emotional intelligence. These people are so stupid and emotionally crippled. Don't listen to the complaints. $700,000 of your tax dollars to help out the managers of a failing government I don't even know what you call it. Scam? It's a steal. The 675 managers who attended desperately needed a casino night. They desperately needed dancers and motivational speakers. Their company is losing money! What's a better way to get that cash back than learn from these awesome seminars like Techniques to Empower You: Change the way you relate to your work, change the way you relate to your colleagues, our organizations and our customers. You could go from that, Techniques that Empower You down to Mentoring The Generations. We'll help you engage effectively all across all dimensions of diverse thoughts, diverse ideas, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors and diverse values of all generations. My gosh! We are going to fix this Social Security thing really fast. Oh, and then there's the emotional intelligence seminar: Learn to lead from where you stand... or sit with the door closed most often. And focus on a wide array of competencies and skills that drive leadership performance.

Then there's this one: Managing Diverse People: A forum to discuss diversity and management for all employees. And then, Learning at a Higher Level: Join a panel of current senior executive service, SES Career Development Associates and learn what steps they took to prepare themselves for placement in the SES. Of course, they also had the, I hope you made it to the Removing the Barriers. Learn hands on. Problem solving processes that give employees the opportunity to identify areas of conflicts and concerns in the workplace and the options or solutions to address them.

You know what? Let me tell you something. These are wonderful, tender, neato classes that I'm sure all the managers there at the Social Security Administration, they benefitted from them. They're fantastic. I'm happy for them. You know, it's great. There is one class missing that I think that we should make sure is in there in the next manager's spa getaway. I'd like to call this class Addition and Subtraction: A highly trained calculator expert will show you the numbers on a calculator and teach you how to spend less money than you take in.

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.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
