GLENN: Can you get the front page of the New York Times for me, please? You know that story that we were talking about in the meeting, can you get that for me? The front page of the New York Times, they are talking about "You know what, we should watch out for our debt; there's problems. We should look out for our debt. What are we doing on the debt thing? Really?" New York Times is just covering this. And they tie it in and say you know what we really need to figure out? What do we have in common with Greece? Because what happens in Greece might happen here. You think so, New York Times? Welcome to the party.

PAT: Yeah, a lot of apparently the New York Times has decided that a lot of what Greece was doing was because it was a bunch of social programs like —

GLENN: That they can't afford.

PAT: They can't afford it, they can't afford the pensions.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And so they are collapsing and, gosh, aren't we doing some of those same things here?

GLENN: That's really weird, isn't it?

PAT: And didn't the New York Times kind of help push the New York Times thing down our throat?

GLENN: Thank you very much, Wilson. I love this. Look at this. Here's the New York Times today, in Greek crisis, some see parallels to U.S. debt woes. It's easy to look at the protests — the protestors and the politicians in Greece and the other European countries with huge debts and wonder why they don't get it. They have been enjoying more generous government benefits than they can afford. No mass rally and no bailout fund will ever change that. No benefit cuts or tax increases can change that. Yet, in the back of your mind comes a nagging question, writes the New York Times. How different really is the United States? The numbers on our federal debt are becoming frighteningly familiar. The debt is projected to equal 140% of gross domestic product within two decades. And in the budget troubles of state governments and the true shortfall is even larger. Greek's debt by comparison equals 115%. The United States probably will not face the same kind of crisis as Greece for all sorts of reasons — let me just add editorial comment here — because America is somehow different than the rest of the world. The laws of math, of finance, and the laws of physics just somehow or another magically break down at our shoreline, but I digress. But the basic problems are the same. Both countries have a bigger government than they are paying for, and politicians and spendthrift as some may be are not the main source of the problem. We the people are. We have not figured out the kind of government we want. We're in favor of Medicare, Social Security, good schools, wide highways, strong military, low taxes. Dealing with the disconnect will be a central economic issue of the next decade in Europe and Japan and this country. We're the major problem because we haven't decided what kind of government we want.

Excuse me? Ummm, yes, we did decide that. We did. We decided that a long, long time ago. The progressives have been spoon feeding us this nonsense and indoctrinating our kids. If you look at the wonders of socialism, do you know where socialism wins? There's a new Pew Research out, and I'm just pulling these off the top of my head. But it's like 51% are against socialism, has a negative context to 51% of Americans say socialism is bad... unless you're 18 to 24. 18 to 24, college students, which is so strange, college students are for it. Huh. That's weird. We're being spoon fed and indoctrinated. Excuse me, but the American people have decided. The American people, they say the government, the politicians are not the problem here. The people are. The people spoke! We said we didn't want the big healthcare! We said no! They did it anyway. The people aren't the problem. The politicians are the problem. The people aren't the problem. Did they ask you for another, what is it, a total of $30 billion for Freddie and Fannie? Did they ask you? You know they paid it this weekend. I don't remember being asked. Did they ask you if you wanted to bail out Greece? No, I wasn't asked. $1 trillion bailout. The IMF is behind this. We are 17% of the IMF. Anything the IMF gives to anybody else, that's 17 cents on every dollar comes from you. Did you vote for the IMF? Are you for the IMF? Do you know who they are? Do you know where they are? Do you know where they are located? Do you know who the president of the IMF is or the chairman of the board or the C — I don't even know their structure. Do you? 17 cents of every dollar from the IMF comes from your pocket! I mean, don't even get me started on this. That the people are the problem? The people are the problem. How about the Fed being the problem? Tell me the structure of the Fed. Tell me what it is. Tell me who the people are. Tell me — you know it's a private corporation. It's a collection of banks. Tell me who they are. Do you know? I don't. You know why? Because you are not allowed to know. It's secret. In a country, in this country it's secret to know who's printing our money, who's backing that? This is a note, a federal reserve note says it at the top of your money. What corporations are they? Which ones? Do you know that the Fed, to help out, to help out, and it's going to be a good investment for us, do you know that the Fed this weekend decided to buy Euros? They are buying Euros. As an investment. Why would we buy Euros? The Euro is going to collapse. So now the Fed, these private corporations, are buying Euros. Okay, that doesn't make any business sense at all. So what do they get out of it? Right, that's right, I forgot. I forgot. Where did we start? Crime, Inc. Money being funneled to giant corporations. The wealthy, the — I don't mean the people. Forget about the people who make, you know, $200 million a year. Forget about the people who make — the petty little Oprahs of the world. We're not talking about Oprah Winfrey kind of wealth. That's pish posh, man! Oprah's a pauper. We're talking about global... Oprah is not buying CDOs or CDS, whatever the hell, credit default swaps. She is not buying those. Who's buying those? The same people that just got the trillion dollars for Greece. They got that money. They took a trillion dollars from the taxpayers all over the world. They got that as a bailout. Now they have taken that money and some of them are now the ones who are betting on the default of Greece. So they are going to get paid twice.

"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.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
