GLENN: Hey, maybe what we could do is we could make the new recycling bins for Alexandria, for Virginia. Have you heard these? These are great. They're putting now chips into the Virginia recycling bins.

PAT: Just like they are doing in Great Britain?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I love that.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

PAT: I love that system. That's really good.

GLENN: So what they are doing now, this is according to Virginia. What they are doing is they are putting these chips in these new recycling bins. Cost you $9 extra, and you don't have a choice. But they are putting these chips into the recycling bins and they are not doing it to track you or anything specifically about you. They are just, they want to find out which groups of people are not recycling so they can, quote, target them. Now, when they say "Target them," I'm sure Arianna Huffington —

PAT: No, they must mean violence because that's what —

GLENN: Arianna Huffington, yeah.

PAT: What Sarah Palin meant was she was targeting people.

GLENN: Yeah. So they are going to —

PAT: Oh, my. Oh, my.

GLENN: They are going to target people and target neighborhoods that aren't the best at — this is all — I'm quoting. This is all really to help the economy. This is all — because we don't want to spend so much money in advertising. We want to be able to target specific neighborhoods and streets where people aren't recycling.

STU: Oh, so the chips are just for commercials. They just want to make sure their commercials are good.

GLENN: Exactly right. That's exactly right.

PAT: I believe that completely.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

PAT: I don't have any suspiciousness about that at all.

GLENN: I used to live in Old Town, Alexandria. So I lived in this town that's doing this. If you would bring a chipped garbage can to me, recycling bin to me, get the hell off my land. You'd have a hard time finding that chip. "I don't know what happened to the chip. It's weird. I need another garbage — I need another recycling bin." Okay. Make sure this one has a chip in it, will you? "Gosh, I don't know what happened to that chip. That's weird, isn't it? You are putting a chip this my garbage can? Not in a million years do I take a chip." What the hell is wrong with you, Virginia? Now, it's not all of Virginia. It's just Alexandria. But what the hell is wrong with you? You deserve to be rounded up. You do, seriously. For recycling. You deserve to be rounded up and put behind barbed wire for recycling if you accept the chip in your recycle. What is wrong with you? "Oh, Glenn Beck says they are going to round people up for recycle..." oh, yes. Oh, yes. Get that right. Spell it right. Spell it right.

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: Glenn, you can talk trash about Virginia all you want but New York City —

GLENN: Say recycling.

STU: You could talk recycled materials about Virginia all you want but I mean, right now as we speak, New York City is proposing a plan to get — to reduce their waste by 15% every two years, and it's going to — they are going to do it very simply by just one package of eleven different bills to make that happen. What could possibly be in there? There couldn't be anything restrictive or —

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I was sitting at a table while Bill Clinton was yacking the other night. I'm sitting at a table with a bunch of these reporters. And a guy says to me, "Glenn, you know we need financial reform." I said, do I now? "Glenn, these... these credit card contracts, now, they're 30 pages long, some of them." I said, oh, that's great. "People can't understand that." So wait a minute. What you are saying is we're going to reform and cut down on the 30 page contracts by introducing a 2400 page bill that nobody reads.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: How is that going to help anything? That's not going to reduce the — please don't start with me on the — are you people reporters or are you — stop drinking the Kool Aid. What is that? "Yeah, I... we've got to get those things down."

I said to somebody the other day, they asked, "Glenn, do you think the American people would accept some sort of immigration reform at this point?" I said, if you can write it down in 30 pages, yeah, maybe. Maybe.

STU: That's about the length of the Arizona bill. That's about 30 pages.

GLENN: If you can do it in 30 pages, maybe. Arizona, you should be ashamed of yourself. That took you 30 pages to write? That should be one. I'm serious. One. If you can't get something done in 30 pages now in Washington D.C., don't even bring it to me. Don't even bring it to the American people. Don't bring it. If you can't get it done, you are hiding something. Period. The Constitution was on four. Four pages.

You know, I think that would be one of my first things if I was running for president of the United States, I'm not going to sign anything over 30 pages. I'm not even going to read it. I'm not even going to read it.

PAT: Which would be fine because you just wouldn't sign anything. That would be great.

GLENN: Great, not going to do that one, no. You know, I'm going to read that one tonight. I tell you I'm going to read that one tonight. Not.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
