Obama: "at some point, you've made enough money"



Obama: “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money”

GLENN: The President went off prompter yesterday and --

PAT: I love it when that happens

GLENN: -- and said something pretty important. Now, we can tell in the media what is off prompt err and what is not because we get the script usually prior to the speeches. So, you can -- you could just read along with him and so you know when he is ad libbing or when he said something that he wasn't supposed to say or wasn't going to say and you see where his ad libs are. And sometimes the scripts come out afterward will show the changes.

Well, here is -- here's what he said yesterday. The last part, well, but, you know, I think is an add lib. Here we go.

Obama: I want to be clear. We're not -- we're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned.

GLENN: This is scripted.

OBAMA: I do think at a certain point you've made enough money.

PAT: It's so clear. It's so clear where this guy's heart is. It's certainly not in capitalism and certainly not in the free market. It's certainly not with people who have gone out and made money, even though he himself did.

GLENN: At what point -- at what point do you have enough money? .

PAT: Yeah. Is it a million?

GLENN: What point? At what point is it?

PAT: You know, is it 250,000, because that's when you decided to start hitting people with extra taxes?

GLENN: Are we going after the -- are we going after people like the Buffet? Are we going to go after Warren Buffet? When I say Warren Buffet, I mean going after all the trust funds. I mean George Soros? Have you had a chance to talk to George Soros about how much is too much?

PAT: He made 3.9 billion in an economic recession last year.

GLENN: Can you tell you something? When I first started to know my best friend, John Huntsman -- I just love this man -- he's 74, I think, and when I first started to know him, he asked me -- he had just fallen off the Forbes list for the first time in, like, 25 years because he's giving all of his money away. He's a multi billionaire and has given, I think, $1.8 billion away in the last couple of years, and he's going to die broke and we were talking about falling off and he said, it's a good thing. He said, you know, Glenn, he said, everybody -- I've seen so many people come up on this list and then they fall off. He said, very few actually stay up for a very long time and I said, how do you feel about off? He said, it's good. I feel good. I'm giving it away. I can't take it with me. I've got to do something good with it. I'm giving it all away. And he said, May I ask you a question? How much is too much? I said, I don't know. Now, I'm walking in the backyard of one of his homes and his home is just phenomenal and we were walking outside and he said, You should decide that, he said, because as things change in your life, you know, when you are making $20,000, you thought, if I could just make 50, when you made 50, if I could just make 100, you make 100, if I could just make a quarter of a million, you make a quarter of a million, if I can just make a million, a million, if I could just make 10, 10, if I could just make 50, 50, if I could just make 100, 100 if I could just make a bill I don't know. He said, you should decide, you should decide. And I said, Is there an answer to that? He said, Yeah. Each individual makes it. How much is too much? I thought that was really wise, that you don't -- what his advice meant was don't get trapped in the money game. We had a conversation that followed that on it's what you do that's important. It's are you growing that is important, not money. Don't get caught in the money game. Money is a by-product of what you do. If you get caught in the money game and you lose sight of how much money really is and that is -- and you lose sight of what you can do and the responsibility that comes with it and, also, the potential grotesqueness of it all, and I asked him one time, I said -- we were flying on an airplane of his, and I said, John, how do you ever make -- how do you ever justify -- there's no way to make an airplane that's economical, never, never. And he said, I know. He said, I'm about time now, because he still flies over to China and he does stuff all over the world. He said, I'm at that time in my life now where I can probably get rid of the airplane and probably should, he said, but charity begins at home, and he said, it was the only way I could be with my family. I would fly to China and I would have my kids on the floor of the airplane and, he said, that was taking care of me and he said, there was no way to justify it economically, but you've got to take care of yourself so you can make money and take care of others. His philosophy has always been, when he talks to me, you take -- you be responsible. You take care of others. Don't -- you don't have to self-sacrifice and implode and, you know, and live in, you know, gunny sacks, but be responsible. Take care of others. Know what's important. That's what we should be preaching. Our problem in our country is not money and rich people. Our problem in our country is greed and loss of perspective, loss of perspective, and each man has to police himself and each man or woman makes the decision for themselves.

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.
