Glenn Beck: Dems cure for lung cancer: more cigs

GLENN: After months of debate the Senate has finally approved Senator Dodd's massive financial overhaul. What is this? This is as the president said yesterday, I think this is fantastic, this is going to solve these problems. We're going to be able to have a stable situation. See, if you remember, if you know anything about history, in the 1800s, we had a very unstable situation. What would happen is things would crash then come up again and then they would crash and come back up again, about every ten to 20 years we would have a pretty big crash. But it would take about a year, year and a half, two years, tops, before it would rebuild. And then you would have another buildup and then things would crash again. Well, it's interesting to watch this, because as people became richer and richer, as there became people like the Rockefellers and the Carnegies, as these people became more and more wealthy, it seems as though there was almost a game being played. Then around 18 I'm pulling this out of my head I think it's 1898, there was a crash where JP Morgan actually had to loan the government gold. So the government could stay afloat. Well, people didn't like that. You were too beholden to people like JP Morgan. They didn't like that at all. And they didn't like the fact, because the banks were telling them the JP Morgans, the Rockefellers, all the wealth, were telling people: This is just too unstable. So when Teddy Roosevelt was in office, they had devised a plan, and they said: This will stop everything. This will stop it. We're going to have our own bank, and we're going to get all these people together and it's going to be a big bank, and it will be great. People didn't go for it in Teddy Roosevelt's time. 1913 comes along. It had failed a second time. Then they decided to change the name of that bank to the Federal Reserve. Didn't change anything else. They changed the name of the bank, the Federal Reserve and they jammed it through. Because people thought it's a federal bank. I get it, it's part of the government. No, it was the same plan that people rejected. But they do what all progressives do, when you don't like something they change the name. The reason why they said we needed the Federal Reserve was to stop all of the depressions, to stop the crashes, to stop the wild fluctuations. What the bank would do would be to control the money supply, make it looser or tighter depending on what the cycle was that way we'd have smooth sailing all the way along. It worked so well, 1913 we had the Fed and then the great depression of 1920. The Federal Reserve was so weak they did nothing. The government was in the hands of Harding and Coolidge, and they did something. Here's what they did. They can you the taxes and they cut the spending by over 50 percent. That ushered in the roaring 20s and then we had another crash. And this is when everybody got involved. It became the Great Depression. We're repeating that now. But we're also repeating 1913. Because this is their solution. Their solution is: Global financing. No, no, the Federal Reserve wasn't enough. The control of all the money wasn't enough. We need more control of the money. This time we need global control, and that way everything will be fixed. Do not stand with the Finance Bill. If you have a senator or a Congressman that is weak on this, call them. It is not good.

PAT: I'd restrict your calls to the House now since it passed the Senate.

GLENN: Democrats now, do you even know this? They're moving forward with an almost $200 billion jobs bill. That is a jobs bill that, jobs bill, really? That's a stimulus package. That's what that is. It's meant to provide continuing support on a wide range of things, including new fees. Fees are taxes. The taxes target the oil and gas industry. Senator Hillary Clinton has called for a response from the international community, North Korea. Oh, that's going to happen. That's going to happen. BP is still trying to clean the mess up. UK's new coalition government is set to launch a series of austerior measures, racing taxes on everything including marriage, capital gains in the UK may double. May double. And here's something else: Investors around the globe are bracing for a summer of great discontent, if not outright disaster, by some accounts. Amid signs that Europe's debt problems it's not a debt problem. It is an overspending problem. Amid signs that Europe's debt problems and worries associated with them are spreading throughout the globe. Indeed, pandemic outbreak of panic over the global debt crisis is keeping many investors on the sidelines as they wait for signs of hope in the gathering storm. Look at this. First of all, it's now a global debt crisis. Before all we cared about was the United States. Now it's a global debt crisis. I told you before: The reason why we can't stop this is because it's a global debt crisis. Nobody would listen. Investors on the sidelines wait for signs of hope of the gathering storm. The storm. Gee, hmm, almost like a perfect storm. The path clear is not clear it's treacherous the debt loads of our governments and others too are becoming overwhelming. But what are we doing? We've got another stimulus bill of 190 billion. Where is Paul Volker today. Yesterday he said we have to stop all of this. Where is he today? Is he helping to design the new $190 billion stimulus bill. I heard people on CNBC last night talking about, are you ready for this they all claim to be free market people. All claim to be free market people saying you know I don't like it. You know I don't like it. But we've got to do something. What can we do? They've got to bail these banks out. They've got to do this. We've got to help them if we excuse me? Kudlow from Kudlow and Cramer, Larry Kudlow came out, he has an editorial today, he said: You free market people you free market people Larry Cudlow, you free market people have got to stop pretending there isn't going to be a lot of pain associated with your plan. Are you kidding me? Look it. Let me be clear. I've said this for five years. Tons of pain is coming our way. Tons of pain. But every day that goes by, this is cancer, gang. Here is a doctor who has been telling you for a while you've got cancer. Go in, let me cut it out. Nobody did. Great. You have cancer. It's growing. Now you need chemotherapy, and I gotta cut it out. Every day that goes by this cancer gets bigger. You've lost your two legs now. You've lost one arm. We're losing time. At some point the doctor has to look at you and say: I'll do it, but I don't know if anything will work. You waited too long. We are talking about radical surgery. But we're talking about the difference between saving the life and no chance. Not only are we not having surgery, we have lung cancer. And we have upped we were smoking four packs of cigarettes a day when we were diagnosed with cancer. And we've been listening to a quack for the last two administrations that say: Here's the best thing for lung cancer; more cigarettes. And now we're smoking a hundred packs a day.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
