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.

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.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
