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.

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.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
