Glenn Beck: How stable is the Dollar?


Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government


by Glenn Beck


GLENN: Try this one. If you look now at the world economic forum, they have just released a report. While Nancy Pelosi is saying we need a second stimulus, Nancy Pelosi, a progressive, says we need a second stimulus at a time that the world is saying the United States is spending too much money. What does the world economic forum, where do they place, out of the top 50, where do they place the stability of the U.S. currency, out of all of the currencies ‑‑ now let me get the, let me get the top 10 here. And you tell me. Who do you think is ‑‑ who do you think is number one, Stu, in currency stability?

PAT: Are you talking to Stu or are you talking to me?

GLENN: Stu around?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Anybody.

STU: Number one in currency stability?

GLENN: Yeah. The top 20 economies, financial stability. Top 20 economies, number one?

PAT: Stability ‑‑

PAT: I'll say China.

GLENN: No. Norway. China is ‑‑ China's not on top 20.

PAT: Yeah, I'll go with Norway, I guess.

GLENN: Number 2 is Switzerland. Number 3 is Hong Kong. Number 4 is Chile. Number 5 is Singapore. Number 6 is Saudi Arabia. Number 7, Canada. Number 8, Kuwait. Number 9, Australia. Number 10, Germany. These are currency stability. This is the top 20.

STU: Canada?

GLENN: Canada, financial stability. Financial stability.

PAT: Do you remember, though, what used to happen to a Canadian dollar or if you got a Canadian quarter? I mean, for those who live in the northern tier of the country.

GLENN: Of the country.

PAT: You know how awful it is if you ever got a Canadian anything, okay? It was like, this is worthless; I can't do anything with this. Because it was, what, one third of the U.S. dollar at one time?

GLENN: We have, let's see, Germany number 10. Do we get in ‑‑ are we number 15? Finland is number 11. France is number 12. Malaysia, 13. Mexico ‑‑

PAT: You've got to be kidding me.

GLENN: Financial stability, top 20 economies, financial stability, Mexico 14. 15 Brazil. 16, Czech Republic. The Czech Republic. United Arab Emirates. Sweden, number 18. 19, Denmark. The Slovak Republic is number 20. Here we go. Overall financial stability for the United States of America, overall financial stability placing now number 38. Currency stability, the United States places now 50th.

PAT: We're last.

GLENN: 50th. Banking stability, number 36. Our currency is the fifth ‑‑ we are the global currency, the global world standard and we are now ranked at number 50, five‑zero. And you expect that to last? Who are you kidding? Now, when the movers and shakers see the world economic forum come out with a report that says our currency is number five‑zero in the world, 50th in the world, if you hold a lot of dollars, what do you think you're going to do with them? If you see that our overall financial stability is 38, what are you going to do? If you think our banking stability is now, you see that the world economic forum places it at 36th, what do you think you're going to do? Don't you see what's happening? And at the same time all of these cases from these global organizations are moving in the opposite direction and saying bad America, bad America. What is our Nobel Prize winner doing? Our Nobel Prize winner is learning to spend even more money. They are now looking at a second stimulus package... for what? Well, one of the things they would like to look at is they would like to look at, you know, being able, being able to go back and look at the last five years or maybe seven years for companies that have been struggling and been losing money, give them a tax break for those companies that have been losing money. Let them say, "Well, I've got to claim, you know, the losses that I had six years ago." Here's an idea. What do you say that we start giving tax breaks to producers? What do you say we start giving tax breaks to people who are actually making a difference and hiring people? What do you say we give a tax break to, oh, I don't know, everybody, and stop spending money? Top printing money. Stop spending money. Yes, I know what that means. There are people right now in their car who are financial quote/unquote geniuses who are still telling everybody to stay in the market when it was at 13,000, stay in the market when it was at 12,000, stay in the market when it was 10,000, all the way down to 7500: Stay in the market, stay in the market, stay in the market. Yeah, well, thank you for your help, genius.

Now, these same geniuses are telling you don't worry about the economic stability of the United States of America; it will turn around, don't worry about the stability of the dollar; it will turn around. It will not turn around. You know why it won't turn around? Because the people in Washington and the people in the globe don't want it to turn around. So what do you do?

PAT: Sorry, Glenn, breaking news. We've got to go to Stu Burguiere in New York City.

STU: Amazing.

GLENN: Stu?

STU: What an amazing day. Pat, thank you so much. This is absolutely incredible. Glenn Beck has just been awarded an MTV video music award for ‑‑

GLENN: I haven't made ‑‑ wait. I haven't made a music ‑‑

STU: For best female artist, which is ‑‑

GLENN: I'm male.

STU: Which is absolutely incredible. There was an incident, though, that happened as Kanye West came on stage and took the mic away and said that he believed Pat Gray deserved the award saying that he was the best female ever. But either way ‑‑

PAT: I'm not sure how I feel about that.

GLENN: Who would ever wear a T‑shirt that says Kanye is right? Nobody.

PAT: Nobody.

STU: Can you even imagine that?

PAT: Let's review this morning. So so far Glenn has received the valedictorian award for Harvard.

STU: Yes.

PAT: Cambridge, Oscar for best movie not yet made.

STU: Right.

PAT: The Lifetime Achievement Award Oscar, right?

STU: Yep, also ‑‑ go ahead.

PAT: Astronauts Hall of Fame.

STU: The Astronauts Hall of Fame, yep.

STU: Yep, the 2016 Olympics.

GLENN: He's been awarded the 2016 Olympics for his backyard?

STU: Right. And then we did have a caller who won the best Latin crossover remix album for Grammy awards and also someone else won a daytime Emmy for steamiest love scene in a soap opera.

GLENN: Wow that's incredible, that's great.

PAT: I believe the only thing you can say about all of this is...

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: Wow.

On the Basis of Sex. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you probably didn't expect those five words to come out of me this morning. No, that's not my version of a clickbait headline to get you to pay attention — although that probably just happened — but this is the title to the new movie based on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Progressives and liberals have been hovering over YouTube like a pack of rabid wolves, anxiously awaiting the first trailer to drop. And — three days — they got their wish. Something in the last few seconds caught my ear. Watch:

Now my first thought after hearing that went something like this: The word "freedom" is literally the fifth frigging word in the first sentence of the First Amendment. It shows up for the second time just two sentences later. How do you screw that up? I always assumed that liberal Hollywood movie makers had never really read the Constitution, but this is just sad.

But my second thought was that maybe they don't consider the Bill of Rights actually part of the Constitution. However, according to the National Constitution Center, the Bill of Rights officially became part of the Constitution — not a separate document — when it was ratified in 1791. This is rather easy to fact check, so there's really no excuse here.

But then I had another thought. Either liberal Hollywood forgot that the Constitution changed in 1791, or they actually prefer the vaguer pre-1791 version of the Constitution where God-given rights can be excluded if the state so pleases. Think about it. The Bill of Rights is the single greatest roadblock to the radical Left's "progress." Do you hate the fact that private gun ownership encourages self reliance and personal freedom? Do you also hate the fact that dissenting views, opinions and speech can't be silenced and crushed? Then the Bill of Rights is a clear and present danger to your agenda. It's enemy number one.

The new Left that is radically moving toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791.

You see, the new Left that is radically moving further toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791. They wish it never happened. The Bill of Rights is a constant reminder that some FREEDOMS can't be given by the government, they're granted by GOD. And that thought — you being aware of that — scares the hell out of them.

Now, it's possible I thought too much into this. It's also possible the screen writer made a simple mistake and thought Ruth Bader Ginsburg was actually born before 1791, figuring it would be a nice tip of the hat to her longevity. I can actually see how you could make that mistake. But it's also possible that this is a sign of the times we live in.

The Bill of Rights is under attack, maybe more now than ever. It's never been more important to let the Constitution of 1791 be our guide, true north and lighthouse.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

How did this slip by?

The Left has been foaming at the mouth waiting for this movie to drop and when the trailer finally hit the interwebs, it ended with an embarrassing factual error about the Constitution.

What will happen when the Titan kneels?

You can tell that the NFL season is approaching because you can hear the whining from highly-paid athletes as they prepare their kneepads for some kneeling.

In May, the NFL instated a policy that penalizes players who take a knee during the national anthem.

"A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem," the statement said. "The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem."

Tennessee Titan's defensive end Jurrell Casey has decided that he will continue his whining and kneeling.

"I'm going to take my fine," Casey said in an interview. "It is what it is, I ain't going to let them stop me from doing what I want to do. If they want to have these battles between players and organizations, this is the way it's going to be."

Maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics.

He added that "At the end of the day, we got to do a job, but I will continue to use my platform to keep on speaking up."

Yes, he does have a job to do. And that job is playing football. His bosses have made it clear that political activism is not part of the job. Who knows, maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics. There's also Starbucks. They need a self-righteous CEO.

All anyone can talk about right now is Russia and collusion, and for good reason. Special Counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for cyber attacks and the hacking of cyber-systems in energy, nuclear, water, and manufacturing sectors which you can read about here.

The Trump-Russia scandal, in a word, is maniacal. There are many moving parts that are very hard to solve — or simply don't want to be solved. All of these are "mysteries wrapped in an enigma," asserted Glenn on Wednesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program."



From the curious case of Imran Awan to the hacking of DNC servers to "Russian" meddling in elections via social media, all of these deserve scrutiny.

On today's episode, Glenn examined seven scandals that make up the Russia connection:

  1. Russian operatives who used social media to divide Americans during the 2016 election.
  2. The meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
  3. The Fusion GPS Dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
  4. Voter fraud in Illinois.
  5. Hillary Clinton's emails.
  6. Imran Awan. Awan was an IT staffer for Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives who was part of a federal investigation and was arrested on bank fraud charges.
  7. Lastly, the 2016 DNC email leaks.

When it comes to Donald Trump, Glenn Beck argues that there are three tribes that categorize the way people examine him regarding his foreign and domestic policy.

Tribe one is the #Resistance. They are the ones who believe that everything President Trump does is bad. They're also the ones who call for impeachment and who label President Trump a "treasonous traitor" even before a summit with a foreign leader takes place.

Those, according to Glenn's analysis, include groups like Think Progress, who published an article suggesting that women's rights would be rolled back if the President's SCOTUS nominee is confirmed by the Senate. This tribe also includes progressive talking heads and far Left publications and politicians like The New York Times and Hillary Clinton.

Tribe two are those who defend the President and his actions at all costs. He can do no wrong. These are the people who deny the President's mistakes. They believe the President is a master chess player and everyone else is a pawn in Trump's game.

Both who operate in tribes one and two maintain a "win at all costs" mentality. They don't care what happens as long as their side wins. Glenn calls this a "cult of personality madness."

Tribe three are those who are "free thinkers." These people question the President with boldness and aim for intellectual honesty when evaluating the President's policies and behavior.

Glenn believes tribe one and tribe two are smaller than tribe three.

So, what do all these tribes have to do with Trump and the Russians? Find out in the clip below.
