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.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
