Glenn Beck: $300 million bribe

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

by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Let me talk to you about Mary Landrieu. Mary Landrieu is the senator from Louisiana, and she got $100 million ‑‑ explain this, Pat.

PAT: She got ‑‑ there's an article in this new healthcare bill in the Senate version that specifies that any state that's been declared a major emergency or a major disaster area for each of the last seven years and fits several other criteria, like they have a state capitol that's two words in the name.

GLENN: That doesn't really say that, does it?

PAT: Like Baton Rouge. No, I mean, it's not quite that. But it's almost that specific. I mean, it takes like three seconds to determine that Louisiana is the only one.

GLENN: Right. It's three pages. This definition is three pages.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So you know when they're defining this, they had to define it in three pages.

PAT: Otherwise they're going to give it to how many states?

GLENN: Right. So it had to be very carefully designed. But if you thought you weren't doing anything wrong, you would have just said Louisiana, okay? So if you ‑‑ it takes really one word. Well, $300 million grant, for, one word, Louisiana.

PAT: Louisiana.

GLENN: But instead they knew that this was a bribe. They knew this was wrong. So they had to cover it in three pages by defining it very specifically without ever saying the one word: Louisiana. This is a bribe. That's all it is.

PAT: Because Mary Landrieu was on the fence. She was maybe not going to vote for even cloture and so it was reported to be $100 million on Friday and reporters were asking her about this financial fix for Louisiana that got her vote. And she said, I'm not going to be defensive about this, and it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix. So she was so arrogant about it that she told them it was triple the bribe. So she may be easy.

GLENN: But she's not cheap.

PAT: But she's not cheap. So I think that's ‑‑ at least that's what I take from that.

GLENN: We're with a high‑class prostitute. That's what we're with.

STU: Right. It's certainly ‑‑

PAT: No, you are not at Motel 6 with this ‑‑

GLENN: No. You are not sitting there in a back alley and saying, "Hey, what do you say, five bucks?" No, no, no. This one comes to your Four Seasons hotel room.

STU: Yeah, and you know what?

GLENN: And does it right.

STU: And doesn't dress really slutty.

PAT: You might even think she's the wife of the CEO she's coming in on.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: You know?

GLENN: There's nobody that's going to look at her and go, oh, my gosh, you're with a whore.

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: You are going to look at her and say, "Oh, wow.

PAT: She's classy.

GLENN: Look at that. And then when somebody whispers, she's a prostitute.

PAT: But you think, okay, but she's not cheap.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: You'll dismiss it because it's like, well, yeah, but she's not getting 20 bucks an hour, right? She's getting 1,000 bucks, 1,000 bucks for the night.

GLENN: She's the one when you say, you're a hooker! You're like, you know, having sex for 100 bucks. She says, it's not 100 bucks. It's $5,000!

PAT: Yeah. And then you respect her. Then you're like, oh, okay.

STU: It's the type of high‑class prostitute that actually purchases a wedding ring so when she's walking through the plaza, people think that she's actually married to the person she's walking in with. That's what we're talking about.

PAT: That's how classy she is.

STU: You don't sell your principles for $50 on the street corner. No, no, no 300 million in a three‑Page definition. That's the way you sell your principles.

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: That's right, they did sell their principles.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
