Audio from the Dom Giordano Program (1210 WPHT Philadelphia)

Glenn: I mean, what is up with Arlen Specter?

Pat: The same thing that always is.

Glenn: No, no, no, no.

Pat: You don't think?

Glenn: No.

Pat: This is new? This is new for Arlen?

Glenn: Do you think?

Pat: No. I think it's business as usual many. Think Arlen is really angry. I think he's been angry for a long time. He sounds angry here. Play the angry old man.

Glenn: This is Arlen Specter on the Dom Giordano show on Big Talker 1210 in Philadelphia, our affiliate in Philadelphia, and I mean, those that support Dom, Dom is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and I was, like, Wait, wait, but hang on. This is Arlen Specter addressing Michelle Bachmann

(Both talking.)

Specter: I didn't interrupt you. I didn't interrupt you. Will you stop interrupting?

Bachmann: Well, you asked me a question and I'm a job creator

Specter: I didn't interrupt you. This is beginning to sound like a TV talk show. I asked you what you voted for and you didn't say anything because ‑‑

Bachmann: I voted for prosperity.

Specter: Well, now. Wait a minute. I'll stop and you can talk.

Bachmann: Okay.

Specter: I'll treat you like a lady. So, act like one.

Bachmann: I am a lady.

Specter: What I asked you is what did you vote for

Bachmann: I voted for prosperity. I didn't vote for the government takeover of private industry, whether it's in health care or whether it's government heaping debt upon us that we ‑‑ our children have no possibility of paying back without a radically reduced standard of living. I'm a Federal tax litigation attorney. My husband and I have created 50 jobs. We're not a big deal, but we created 50 jobs and the Obama administration, less than 7 percent of the people in the administration have any private sector experience many that's why every answer is more government. The people don't want more government.

Voice: Okay. Congresswoman, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Senator Arlen Specter here on the Big Talker 1210.

Specter: She said I voted for prosperity. Well, prosperity wasn't a bill, was it?

Bachmann: Well, why don't we make it a bill?

Specter: Don't interrupt me. I didn't interrupt you. Act like a lady.

Bachmann: I think I am a lady.

Voice: I think she is, too.

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: He did it twice.

Pat: Act like a lady. Get back in the kitchen. Get me a sandwich. Get me a beer.

Glenn: (Mumbling.) Put a ribbon in your hair.

Pat: Put on something slinky and get me a beer. Get in my bed.

Glenn: Listen to his logic.

Pat: She says that prosperity is ‑‑ she voted for that. It's not a bill.

Glenn: Prosperity will never come from a bill in Congress.

Pat: That's for sure.

Glenn: Ever. I mean, listen. His idea is, well, we want prosperity; then we should have a bill. You don't create prosperity. You shut it down.

Stu: I like his solution, too, if we just had a bill called prosperity, then we would have prosperity, like that's not how is works, dude. I know ‑‑ I don't know ‑‑ no offense, but, I mean, I think the point is that when the government gets out of your way prosperity can be created, but created ‑‑ it's not going to be just because you name a bill prosperity, does not just magically appear.

Pat: I agree with him, now, he didn't leave the Republican party. He left sanity. He's insane now.

Glenn: Why was he debating Michelle Barack Obama man? Philadelphia?

Stu: I feel Dom on Dom time put that together. So, I mean, they were ‑‑

Glenn: Genius, Dom.

Stu: Yeah. It's great.

Glenn: I don't know why Arlen Specter agreed to do that. I mean, you're going to lose.

Pat: He's in trouble and this helped him a lot.

Glenn: Can I hear the rest of ‑‑ what did he say after he said the second time?

Pat: Pretty much (mumbling.) We can't go back and play the whole thing right now.

Stu: Maybe we just have Pat recreate it because that's probably a better ‑‑

Glenn: I mean, go ahead and play this whole thing many I didn't know he said it twice.

Specter: Wait a minute. I didn't interrupt you. I didn't interrupt you.

Pat: I'm interrupting you now, though.

Bachmann: Well, you asked me a question and I'm a job creator

Specter: This is beginning to sound like a TV talk show.

Glenn: Okay. Stop just a second.

Pat: This is starting to sound like some of those things on the boxes with the magic pictures that people have in their living rooms now. What do you call them? The evil magic boxes, the flickering lights.

Glenn: I mean, doesn't he sound like he sounds completely ‑‑

Pat: A talk show.

Glenn: It is a talk show.

Stu: You're on a show right now, dude, please.

Glenn: It's called the big talker.

Pat: You mean it's not the box in my living room with the pictures, is it?

Glenn: No, it's not a picture show

Pat: What kind of show is it in.

Glenn: Arlen Specter, that's a good question. We should ask him, Mr. Specter ‑‑

Stu: Radio, have you heard of it?

Glenn: Yeah. Do you refer to things on film, you know, where you go and watch them, like, starring Tom Hanks, do you call those picture shows and do you see them at the movie house, because that's what he sounds like.

Pat: Act like a lady here. Go ahead and play that.

What you voted for and you didn't say anything because ‑‑

Bachmann: I voted for prosperity.

Specter: Well, now. Wait a minute. I'll stop and you can talk.

Bachmann: Okay.

Specter: I'll treat you like a lady. So, act like one.

Glenn: Hang on just a second. Do you remember, do you remember the way the press made a huge deal out of what's his face walking up to Hillary Clinton?

Stu: Rick Lazio.

Glenn: Yeah. Do you remember that? And it was, like, and then he threw her down and assaulted her. It was almost a rape scene. I mean, they ‑‑ we practically had caution tape on the stage when that happened and it was an uncomfortable moment, but I don't think Rick Lazio are said, act like a lady. Oh, my gosh. What a ‑‑

Stu: Oh, wait a minute. I just realized, we have just been joking about Arlen Specter. Where are the complaint calls? I don't see them anywhere. It's so bizarre.

Pat: Oh, boy.

Stu: He was a Republican three months ago.

Pat: I'll tell you another thing, it wasn't funny. It was just weird. It was just weird that you would make fun of a former Republican.

Glenn: Well, he may be a Republican again. He's safe to do it now.

Stu: Is he?

Glenn: But if he comes back and he has a chance of winning, then he ‑‑

Stu: All the blogs will go crazy.

Glenn: But now he's a Democrat and so it's okay to bash him. By the way, can you see if you can get Michelle Bachmann on the phone?

Pat: I can do that.

Glenn: She might be at a nail place center or someplace.

Stu: That's a Republican. You should never say that!

Pat: Treat her like a Republican, Glenn Beck. Will you? Don't joke about her.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
