431,000 jobs added! But 411,000 of them temp government workers

GLENN: I just saw — welcome to the program. I just saw Barack Obama on television saying that the economy is showing more signs of recovery. I'm having a hard time figuring that one out. Am I alone on that? Okay, we added 430,000 jobs but only 41,000 of them are from the private sector. The rest of them are for the government. I don't — how are you —

PAT: Only government can create jobs.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: May I ask a question? Just follow this with me. Okay. If we keep adding government jobs and not private sector jobs.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And we keep taking private sector and shutting it down.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Okay?

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Regulating it out of business, if everybody has their job with the government, they pay taxes, right?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Okay. Where, where does the government get the money to pay the employees that have to pay taxes?

PAT: From the employees. So it's great. Because you are kind of paying yourself through a third party. It's really —

GLENN: Oh, you know, I never really thought of it that way.

PAT: Yeah. You know, it's great.

GLENN: If the government owned everything and you worked for the government.

PAT: This is great.

GLENN: When you paid the government for your socks, the government would then have the money —

PAT: To pay your salary.

GLENN: And you'd be able to pay your taxes, thus the government would be able to make more socks.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: That is incredible.

PAT: It's a genius plan when you think about it.

GLENN: Now, we're not currently making socks.

PAT: No.

GLENN: We're not currently making anything.

PAT: No. Except bigger government.

GLENN: Oh, that's right, we're creating jobs.

PAT: Jobs.

GLENN: And jobs —

PAT: The job of the government is to create jobs.

GLENN: And jobs create money.

PAT: You're right. Now you got it. Now you have it.

GLENN: This is incredible. 95% of the jobs that are created were government jobs last month. 95%. That is not any kind of sign of recovery. That's a sign of death. That is the sign that it is over. And the president somehow or another is saying, yeah, well — really? I don't know how this one works. I'm just a dummy, I guess. Oh, no, wait a minute, I'm not. I'm actually a doctor. (Sniffing). Okay.

PAT: Almost forgot that for a minute.

GLENN: I did. Almost for a minute I thought I was a dummy and then I realized, no, no.

PAT: Then you looked up and you saw your —

GLENN: I did.

PAT: We're in your private lair and you saw your private university doctorate.

GLENN: I like to call it a sheep skin. You know, that's what us doctors call it.

PAT: I didn't realize that.

GLENN: Sheepskin.

PAT: Sheep skin, all right.

GLENN: Wish I knew why we call it a sheep skin.

PAT: Take another doctor, you know, a fellow doctor.

GLENN: So, you know, it's nice to have a president that understands how an economy works so well that he can say there's signs it's really starting to turn around here when 95% of all jobs that were created last month were from the government. And I suppose he gets those kinds of things when he is spending so much time in the library. I don't know if you saw. I hope we're buying the tents for all of these parties at the White House because they look pretty expensive.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, Bill O'Reilly gave his latest take on the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and explained why he thinks House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is like "Alice in Wonderland."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
