Glenn Beck: Warning Sign



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p and 2a ET on the Fox News Channel...

GLENN: Let me give you the deficit. By the way, the dollar has dropped yet again. So you know, I am meeting with some really, really good economists and economic people in the next few weeks and coming months and one of the things I'm going to ask them for are smoke detectors basically. I want to know, give me the warning signs that we need to listen to so we have some sort of an idea, are we getting close to having to head for an exit. Basically if you'll look at my if you'll look in the coming months at what I'm going to propose, the first things that we have to do are shore ourselves up, make sure we're on solid ground, make sure that we have a way to not be enslaved because of our own debt or stupidity or ignorance. Then it's roll up your sleeves and be a part of the solution, not the problem. And stand firm. So what I need is some sort of a warning sign, warning bells of some of the things that I worry about when we hit these parameters, we know, uh oh, trouble. The dollar has fallen again. Gold has reached another record. I can't I don't see it anywhere on any of the screens in front of me. Let me just check with Bloomberg here real quick. Because it is still 1149.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: 1149.

PAT: When we use dollar bills as kindling in our fireplaces, will that be a warning sign? Is that, yeah, one of the smoke detectors we're talking about?

GLENN: So 1149 is the price right now of gold. That is not good. The falling dollar is not good. But more importantly, how about the debt? If you look at, if you look at

PAT: It's passed $12 trillion.

GLENN: Just passed $12 trillion. As I've said last night, if you've TiVoed last night's show, if you watch anything this week, watch last night's show because I talked about the debt and the lies that are being told. It just passed $12 trillion and now the debt ceiling has to be raised. Geithner has said that he's sure that the debt ceiling is going to be raised again. The debt ceiling being raised, they are projecting now, some are projecting that our national debt will be hold onto yourself. It just passed $12 trillion. They are saying that our debt, our national debt next year will be $14.4 trillion. When will the madness end? Soon, soon. But somehow or another the media

WILSON: Not hold these people responsible.

GLENN: I don't know if you've do you have the audio of give me the two pieces of Barack Obama.

PAT: Okay. This was from last night. And I think he said this to Major Garrett on Fox News.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think it is important, though, to recognize that if we keep on adding to the debt even in the midst of this recovery that at some point people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double dip recession.

PAT: Double dip recession.

GLENN: Double dip recession. If they lose confidence in the economy, it will lead to depression or worse.

PAT: Yeah, but what he told us last week, week before.

GLENN: Was what?

PAT: And the week before that was...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We have pulled the economy back from the brink. We got good news last week showing that for the first time in over a year, the economy was actually growing.

PAT: Okay. So and he's used that line I don't know how many times: We pulled it back from the brink; the steps we've taken are working and we pulled the economy back from the brink.

GLENN: There if I may, there is going to be another stimulus package. We are getting to the point healthcare may be the point. We're getting to the point to where if we do any more spending, people and not Americans. The rest of the world will lose confidence. They've already done it. They've already. Look, people are selling their dollars and buying gold. These are the central banks. These are the treasuries. These are the world governments. They are starting to ditch their dollars and buying gold. They are starting to dig in. You need to dig in as well. Get yourself out of debt because they are just going to wait until you see what we're going to do tonight. The news from California will boggle your mind.

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."
