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 radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

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."
