Glenn Beck: State of the Stupid, er, Union

GLENN: Man, I whoa. I have never been so outraged by a president. I don't think I've I've never seen anything like it last I don't even know where to begin. Should we begin with we're going to drill for oil offshore and we're going to have nuclear power plants? Whoa, what? Coupled with a comprehensive cap and trade program. Oh, I see, I see. Cap and trade, let's see. If we had a cap and trade program, how much would it cost then for you to drill for oil in Alaska? It wouldn't be worth it. This guy, I said to you last week, we are going to have evidence on whether everybody says, "Oh, no, he's just a politician, he's just like all the other politicians we've always had, they are all like this." And I've been saying for how long, no, they're not. No, they are not. This guy is in a different category. He is a revolutionary. Look at the revolutionaries that he has appointed. Let's see what I can share here. The people that he has appointed, they are the good ones. Try the revolutionaries that he's tried to appoint and didn't make it through the screening process. This guy is an amazing revolutionary. Last week I told you if he is a politician, he will then triangulate because they are hemorrhaging, hemorrhaging. They'll triangulate. If he people say, oh, fundamentally transform America, no, he doesn't, he just wants to stop all the rhetoric and all the infighting and everything, work together, hope and change. If that was true, he'd triangulate. If he wants to fundamentally transform America and he is being led by the nose by revolutionaries, there's no way he's going to do anything but follow the words and the advice of Saul Alinsky and that is step on the accelerator. If this speech wasn't a step on the accelerator, I don't know what was. The arrogance from the moment this guy walked in, the arrogance. There's no humility there. The arrogance of the lies that he told last night, I've never you know, every president, everybody, you can take it and you can say, okay, well, you know, let's spin this, let's spin that. No, no, no. I don't appoint lobbyists? We sat in my office today and named 12 in his administration! How does he expect to get away with this? With an exception of, he knows the media won't corner him. The media is complicit. The media is damn near treasonous.

When the president last night went in, I'm going to show you there's two things that should speak volumes to you, and it's amazing to me that the media is spinning one of them as, did you see what Alito did? He talked back to the president. I want to play this whole section here for you. I want you to hear what he did last night.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To close that credibility gap, we have to take action on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, ban the outside influence of lobbyists, to do our

GLENN: Stop. Is he not the guy who has Andy Stern, is he not the guy who says, hey, I want to talk about immigration, I talk to SEIU; I want to talk about healthcare, I talk to SEIU; your agenda is my agenda. He wants to stop outside influence? Oh, my gosh.

Then you have, he says that we have to restore a credibility gap. He's lying in his advice on how to repair a credibility gap because too many people think that Washington are liars, cheats, thieves. So let me lie to you and tell you what I do, which he doesn't on lobbyists. I'm sorry, I got sidetracked. Go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Work openly, to give our people the government they deserve.

GLENN: Stop. Stop.

PAT: Openly.

GLENN: He wants to work openly. How about honoring your promise of C Span hearings? He wants to work openly. Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's what I came to Washington to do. That's why for the first time in history my administration posts on our White House visitors online.

GLENN: Stop. Stop! Because it was demanded through a Freedom of Information Act. How long did Fox try to get the Freedom of Information Act to get the White House visitors? "We post online." Months after, and not everybody. Believe me, we filed for the Freedom of Information Act. If you are a schlub that still thinks, we're America, we'll weather anything, don't worry about it, and you are just watching him, this is a brilliant speech. But I truly believe those days are over in America. What these politicians don't know is you are dealing with a different group of voters. You are dealing with people who are not playing politics. They don't care anymore. They are seeing the end of their children's financial future and they want the truth. You cannot push them like this. You cannot do it. He's raised the stakes beyond your wildest imagination. I think he's doing it intentionally as well. Arrogance. Go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've excluded lobbyists from policy making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions.

PAT: Listen to the reaction there. Because they know.

GLENN: I've never heard anything like it.

PAT: He's got lobbyists from Raytheon in his cabinet for electric utility companies.

GLENN: Goldman Sachs!

PAT: Goldman Sachs. Eric Holder himself was a lobbyist.

GLENN: I mean, it is Timothy Geithner's assistant is a lobbyist of Goldman Sachs. I mean, I'm going to show you the influence of big banks tonight on television. I mean, it's and listen. I have never heard. I'm not a guy who said Joe Wilson, I understand his frustration, but I don't agree with, you're in for decorum. This is the president of the United States. This is the state of the union. You know, when he says "Liar" or "You lie," I wasn't for that. But when you hear what happened last night and the groans, I got news for ya. His lies were breathtaking.

PAT: I don't think they could stifle them. I really don't.

GLENN: I don't think so. If I were in there, I would have done the same thing: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: I was at home doing it.

GLENN: I was, too. How could you possibly say that? I mean, and he expects to get away with it.

PAT: I woke up the kids yelling at this guy.

GLENN: The bigger the lie, the easier it is to swallow.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: You what?

PAT: I woke up the kids yelling at this guy. So when they were groaning I'm thinking, you know

GLENN: The restraint?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Red State put together a list of lobbyists after he said this line: William Lynn, Eric Holder, Tom Vilsack, William Corr, David Hayes, Mark Patterson, Ron Klain, Mona Sutphen, Melody Barnes, Celia Muñoz, Patrick Gaspard and Michael Strautmanis?

PAT: Those are just top jobs.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That doesn't even scratch the surface.

GLENN: That's not, okay, I got one in there, I don't know how he slipped in there. There's no attempt to stop these guys!

PAT: No.

GLENN: None, none. I mean, how long? We covered those for a week when he broke that promise and he started breaking it and it was like break, break, break, break, break, break, break. And we were like, where did that promise go? And nobody held him to it.

STU: And this goes back to the point you make over and over again about arrogance. He's got to know everyone knows this.

GLENN: He does.

STU: We've talked about it a million times.

GLENN: This is beyond arrogance. This is beyond arrogance. This also includes, the people are stupid; they'll never know. I'll just say whatever I want because it sounds good. I'll say it well. I'll do a good speech. I look presidential. They're stupid.

STU: You know who else was like this was Jon Edwards. I mean, this is stereotypical, him out there talking about his family, how much he loves his cancerous

GLENN: They are not afraid. This guy is more afraid of the left than he is of you. This is what our founders talked about. When there is fear of the government, there is tyranny. But when the government fears the people, there is freedom. They do not fear you.


 

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
