GLENN: Jobs saved or created. Saved or created jobs, wow, that's fantastic! If you are scoring at home, it is now over 1 million jobs now.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've cut taxes for middle class families, extended and increased unemployment insurance and created and saved more than a million jobs.

GLENN: I mean, that would be great. Wouldn't that be a great stat if it weren't made up? I mean, created by Team Obama to save his presidency? I mean, they are creating and saving a presidency. That's what their job is. But like so many of the congressional districts where the jobs were supposedly created or saved, it is just that. It is made up. Put it another way, the way our grandparents or our parents would have stated it, it's a lie. But with a mostly complicit lap dog media, this administration continues to this day to get away with it. How much more time? It is just one of the many lies told and retold and told again that go mostly unchallenged. And none of it makes sense.

Do you remember the genius that was spilling out of the mouth of Joe Biden several months ago?

BIDEN: We're going to go bankrupt as a nation. Now, people, when I say that, people look at me and say, what are you talking about, Joe? You're telling me we've got to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt? The answer, yes, I'm telling you.

GLENN: Help me out on that. Somebody explain that to me. We're going to go bankrupt if we don't spend more money. You go to your banker and tell them that: We're going to go bankrupt if we don't spend more money. They say I'm a crazy man. Well, I would be if I believe lies like that. We would have to be a nation of imbiciles to accept that. Look, I'm telling you the only way you're going to be able to have your cake is to eat it. Wouldn't it be, wouldn't it be gone then? No, you'll have your cake. Just eat it. That's what I'm telling you. It's the only way you can have it is to eat it.

Can you imagine the arrogance that it takes to believe or the stupidity to believe that you actually have a shot over a period of time of pulling these lies off? Oh, but there's more. Now they're doing a new one. Try quadrupling the debt, quadrupling the debt in six months, quadrupling it in six months! Voting for all of the extravagant spending for the past couple of years as a U.S. senator and then disavowing any and all of the responsibility for any of this mess.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: What I reject is when some folks decide to sit on the sidelines and root for failure on healthcare or on energy or on our economy. What I reject is when some folks say we should go back to the past policies when it was those very same policies that got us into this mess in the first place.

Another way of putting it is when, you know, I'm busy, Nancy's busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else's mess, we don't want somebody sitting back saying you are not holding the mop the right way.

GLENN: Yeah.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Why don't you grab a mop, why don't you help clean up.

GLENN: That's some nerve. That is some nerve. Obama is almost as good as Vince the ShamWow guy. I love the part in the ShamWow commercials, you know, where he spills the cola on the carpet and you are just like, what, I'm just going to demonstrate how absorbent ShamWow is. And then he goes to show the liquid has seeped underneath the carpet but in the very next shot before he even touches the spill with the ShamWow, the liquid under the sample is gone. They've already cleaned it up. And then he presses the ShamWow to the carpet and he says...

VOICE: Without even putting any pressure, 50% of the cola right there. Are you following me, camera guy? The other 50%, the color starts to come up. No other towel's going to do that. It acts like a vacuum. And look at this. Virtually drawing on the bottom.

GLENN: That's unbelievable. I mean, is it just me or is anyone else thinking, ShamWow, Vince for green jobs czar! Are you getting this, camera guy? Look at this! Look at this! New healthcare bill cost $1.3 trillion by their own estimates, but it's also... look at this! ... deficit neutral! Yet another made up phrase in Obamaland.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I actually have said that it is important for us to make sure this thing is deficit neutral.

GLENN: Make sure deficit neutral.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Without tricks.

GLENN: Without transition.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I said I wouldn't sign a bill that didn't meet that criteria.

GLENN: That makes sense. What kind of tricks could there possibly be to use, you know, when you add the expense of $1.3 trillion but doesn't increase the spending or the deficit by a penny? What kind of tricks could there be? Maybe that's because the rich are going to pay for the whole burden? Except that as we showed you last night on Fox with the national debt. If you took every penny from every one of the Fortune 500 companies, all 500, you took every penny of the Fortune 500, the wealthiest companies on the planet, take every penny of their profit for a year, it wouldn't cover 1/10th of this disaster, let alone a drop in the bucket on the national debt. Every penny of the Fortune 500. It would take you 145 years to pay off the $12 trillion that we now owe. How are we going to do this? Answer? We're not. The president of the United States is lying to you. He will not tell you what these things actually cost and the ramifications. He will not tell you what healthcare will cost and who will pay. He has he has gone so far as to claim that this bloated government takeover of healthcare will, quote, fix the economy.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If we're serious about strengthening small businesses, if we're serious about creating a climate where entrepreneurs can succeed, if we're serious about giving you the chance to prosper and grow, I believe, this administration firmly believes that we need to pass health insurance reform in the United States of America. Now...

GLENN: Now what? Spending a trillion dollars, government taking over another industry, a sixth of our economy, that will create a climate where entrepreneurs can succeed, that will give you a chance to prosper and grow? That's inconceivable.

GLENN: Some of his comments are so incomprehensible that they don't even seem to be in English anymore. That's why it's important for us to stick together. That is why it is important that you seek out like minded people, you inform yourself first. You inform your friends, your neighbors, your family members about what is going on. If they won't listen to you, move on to the next person!

How many times did Noah say, get into the boat, get into the boat. How many people made fun of Noah, get into the boat, get into the boat. At some point the boat set sail. My only interest is the truth. I made a promise to myself after I read Thomas Jefferson back in 1995, pursue the truth. Question with boldness even the very existence of God. For if there be a god, he must surely honest questioning over blindfolded fear. I made a promise to myself that I would seek the truth. You, if you are a long time listener of mine, if I make a mistake, you know I lead with it. If I make a big mistake, I have on Terry Schiavo I was on the wrong side for a long time and then I took the unpopular view: I switched because a listener set me straight. My producer said, you can't do this! This is years ago when we first started the show. Stu wasn't with me. He's looking at me like, why do you always do this? You weren't with me. My producer said you can't do this! Yes, I can. I was wrong. "You'll just, I'll destroy your credibility." I won't have any credibility if I lie.

The other reason I do this is for my kids because I believe you would do the same thing if you were in my position and you believed what I believe. They will tell you that I just want to hurt the president, that I didn't have a problem when Bush was running up the deficits. I did; you did. I know better and you know better. You heard me then. You heard me last night; you hear me now. Has the message intensified? Yes! Because the situation has intensified. I don't know if you've noticed lately but despite the lies, despite the frustration, have you sensed I'm more optimistic now than I have been in a long time? It's because there's a good number, millions of Americans that are waking up. They haven't woken up yet in Washington on either side of the aisle. But millions of Americans have. It's about time to build the ark. That's what we're doing next year. We will preserve the republic. We are going to be peaceful, but we are not getting up from the counter. We are not going to sit in the back of the bus. We are going to link arms and we are going to stand together for the truth.

This Friday I'm going to be in Florida and I'm going to give you a sneak peek of what's coming. I will make the announcements on some of the things that are coming. I've moved this up because I have sensed a growing frustration in this country because things are becoming more critical, and I need you to I needed to look you in the eye and be able to sense, do I have you right? Do I sense your commitment? Am I right about you? I think I am. That you will stand and do the tough things. Because you're a parent or you're a grandparent. That you will change your life, that you will not be somebody who is a follower, you will not be somebody who is a victim. You will be a leader. Now, maybe I have that wrong but I don't think I do. But I sense a growing frustration as the country becomes more critical, and I wanted you to know that there's not only hope. There is a plan. And I want you to know that come I think January 5th after the holidays we return, this show is turning a corner. The TV show is turning a corner. I personally am turning a corner.

I talked a long time with my family this summer in the last few months and a long time with my wife. Where are we headed? What are you willing to put up with and do? All the chips. Everything changes. In fact, I just want you to see, I'll give you a sneak preview of just the sound design of the show, that we have some of the best sound designers in the country that in fact, they are the two best sound designers in the country. Sound design is what a show sounds like, you know, our theme and everything else. Here's just a this was just the prototype made for me to approve for what's coming in January.

GLENN: Things are about to change.

Franklin Delano tugged at his hair

And tapped on the arms of his big metal chair

Then he said with a sigh, as he polished his glasses,

In a voice that was low, and as smooth as molasses,

"We must treat these Asians as separate classes

And put them where they can't be harming the masses

Can we put them high?

Can we put them low?

Oh where is the best place for them to all go?"

With a snap of his fingers both too soft and sluggish

(For his polio'd nerves were all wiggy and buggish)

But still had a ring that was brutal and thuggish

He smiled and said, "I've the perfect 'solution'!

A cultural cleansing from Asian pollution!

In this nebulous time full of fear and low wages,

And war with each other that rages and rages

And advice both from fools and from Democrat sages

Let's put all these terrible Asians in cages!"

---

"Oh my!" said Republicans hither and yon

"How that Franklin D. President does carry on!

But this lunatic plan, all at once or in stages

Is nincompoop nonsense, that flatly enrages

And fails to foresee how the public's will ages!

We will not, we must not throw Asians in cages!"

---

"Hear! Hear!" said those few who desired restitution

Of small government under the Constitution

"This Democrat dunce with his pen and his ink,

Will be all our undoing, we fear and we think!

There is nary a depth to which he will not sink!

We must not throw Asian folk into the Clink!"

---

"Yes, indeed," said the Pentagon's pencil-necked nerds

"We must stop these executive's damaging words

For he speaks and his words turn at once into turds

And his plan for the Asians is just for the birds!

This racist mistake, it's a crime for the ages,

We will not, we must not put Asians in cages!"

---

"And yet," said Progressives, who'd slithered right in,

"Would you rather we lose at this war and not win?

Would you like if, quite soon, we're all spending in Yen?

No, of course we must act, though the people may chafe

You strike iron while it's hot to keep everyone safe

We say 'Hail to the Chief', though your ire it enrages

Executive orders by hundreds of pages

Must pour from his hand, 'til our fear it assuages

We must now lock up all these Asians in cages!

---

And so it was done, to our shame and our guilt

And we damn near lost every good thing that we built

But from history we learn, and to history we go

For a crack at a future so bright it could glow

And no matter how Leftism strikes and engages

Us all in a battle of wits that enrages

We still have one thing we can say through the ages:

"It sure wasn't us who put Asians in cages."

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."
