Glenn: Pat's having an aneurysm.

Pat: I can't take it.

Stu: This happens all off the air often.

Pat: I can't take it.

Glenn: What?

Stu: A few weeks ago it was 600,000 jobs created or saved. One week, maybe two weeks ago, I just wrote something in one of the things we did, it was 1 million jobs saved or created. Now, it is -- the recovery act created or saved up to 1.6 million jobs. Is this serious? It's -- he's taking us back from the brink of depression.

Glenn: They don't care nobody has -- nobody cares. The media is not ever going to hold his feet to the fire, ever. They won't.

Pat: Well, I'll tell you something. He just took ownership of it, complete ownership.

Glenn: Wait, wait. Let's play it.

Stu: We cannot tell you that. I was telling you that in the break. Our DVR is not working. Glenn has very select hearing.

Glenn: Did we not just spend $1.6 billion on this studio?

Pat: No. That was to save DVR's. We didn't create them. We saved one of them.

(All three talking at once.)

Glenn: So, this is what he said. He said, we could -- this is unbelievable. Hang on just a second. He's now saying that we -- I can't believe this. He's now saying that we just had this job submit last week and so we're going to next step. You just had the job submit last week and now you're moving forward on that plan, but it took you 90 some days after your general took all of the time to come up with a plan, you just had a job submit last week and now you're going to go spend our TARP money and has just came to you? (Mumbling.)

Pat: I'm trying to hear our President.

Glenn: Now he's talking about small businesses. This is -- I can't do it.

Stu: He did say just moments ago that we have absolutely insured that we will -- that we will not have financial collapse. So, he has taken ownership of this thing.

Glenn: And a depression.

Stu: If and when it happens, it's his. It's his.

Glenn: It won't matter at that point. Here is the --

Pat: But, remember --

Stu: Hey, Pat Gray said this was his house.

Glenn: He also -- he also said that we have stopped the unemployment, the loss of jobs and stopped it and brought it down to a trickle. Now, we could stop there but that's not enough. We now need to create new jobs. Small business, he says, creates 65 percent of all new jobs in America. Not in bad times. In bad times they create as much as 80 percent of all jobs and he's just getting around to it. Let me ask you this: I asked on this round table that I had -- because I had my own job submit. I asked on this round table on my job submit and I asked these business leaders, because I'm a small businessman here in New York. I know how business works. I asked these business people, if the President said I am not going to raise the taxes on small businesses and I'm going to cut taxes here and here for small businesses, would any of you believe it? All of them said no. There's no way.

Pat: How could you?

Glenn: You can't believe them. The uncertainty, it's what killed us in the great depression. It is why the rest of the world reads in their history books it was the depression but in American history books it was the great depression because it lasted longer here. Why? Because the government kept meddling and business couldn't -- they couldn't function, because they never what the rules would be tomorrow. I can't hire new people because I don't trust that these people aren't going to kill me next year. And part of that is literal. I'm not convinced that they're not going to put me or anybody else out of business, through health care, through cap and trade, through whatever it is they decide to do, payroll taxes, Medicare, Medicaid. What are they going to do? I don't know. How about retroactive taxes? No, they would never do that because they already did. How about just forced IOU's? No. They would never do that. They're doing that in California. I mean, what else do they do? What else could they do? The list is longer on what they haven't done or what they're not considering. How do you expand? How do you hire? How do you do it? Do you know that the labor secretary came out, what was it, yesterday, the labor secretary came out and said, they're wanting to now require all businesses to tell us if you're talking to anyone about unionizing or having any kind of meetings against unions or about unions. So, now I would be forced to report if I was having any talks with any attorneys or with my employees or anything regarding unions at all and I would need to report to the Federal Government. Oh, that's going to help business. Seriously, that's what I need. I need another layer and I need to be able to protect -- protect and defend. I need to protect and defend from the robbers around me. That is the principal place of government. They need to protect my life, liberty, and property so I can go do business. I need -- I need people to protect and defend me from the protectors and defenders. I'm sorry. I just, I don't know what else it is going to take. I really don't know what else it's going to take. What else is it going to take for the average person to wake up? By the time they wake up, it could be too late. They must -- we've got to come up with a way to wake our friends and neighbors up. How do we do it? How do we do it? I know we can -- I know we can organize. I know we can learn from the past. I know we can survive anything. I know we can survive a catastrophic failure of this system. I know it. I would rather not go through it. How do we reach out to our neighbors and gently say, look, I don't care if you agree with me or disagree with me on politics, but we've got a couple of things going on. First of all, we have corruption in Washington, vast corruption, both sides of the aisle, staggering. We have bad people designing our plans. Did you watch the show last night? Why isn't every media source on this? You've got a convicted felon developing and writing a book in prison that David Axlerod says is the blueprint for the progressive movement. It is the blueprint on how to get health care and they've done -- it's a 10-point plan. I explained them all last night and I'm going to explain it again night. They've done all 10 steps. We've got felons. We've got Jeff Jones from the Weather Underground helping design and spend the stimulus package. He's the cofounder of it. Where is the media? How do we make our neighbors up?

 

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
