Glenn Beck: Financial bill = crap sandwich

GLENN: All right. So... read the bill. I read the bill.

Now we have this financial reform bill, and here's the great thing about it. It gives the president the opportunity to take over businesses that the president or the treasury believes are too big to fail. It doesn't define that, other than it could be a threat to the nation, to the financial stability of the nation. Well, there's a lot of things that could be — I mean, couldn't Weiner have made that case against gold companies? Mark my words. They will. Couldn't somebody make that against Fox News? Because they're talking down the economy. They're saying these things won't work. Of course it won't work, if everybody says it won't work. It's a threat to the economy.

Now, I know those are extreme cases, but when do you stop thinking, well, that will never happen. At what point does this country start waking up and going, well, now, wait a minute, some really crazy things that we said would never happen here are happening! Probably about the time that you start thinking, man, I really hope there's a lake of unquenchable fire that burns for all eternity but does not consume.

PAT: I thought we had gotten past that particular issue.

STU: Why are you just trying to antagonize the media? Why do you do this? You just antagonize them.

GLENN: Antagonize?

STU: Just to taunt them and I don't know that that's necessary.

GLENN: Because they're so easy.

STU: To get fired up? It is true.

PAT: That's true.

STU: You make a good point and it is —

GLENN: It's so easy. It's my only pleasure in life. It really is.

STU: But to intentionally try to fire them up, I mean, is that really what you should be doing? This may be a larger philosophical question or potentially —

GLENN: Maybe the media would be all fired up, they could all get together and pretend that they are a lake of unquenchable fire.

STU: You are doing it again.

GLENN: Are you telling me the newsrooms — you walk through newsrooms. You are telling me they are not already in hell?

STU: They don't look —

GLENN: They are in hell.

STU: They don't look happy typically.

GLENN: No, they are not.

STU: It doesn't look like a warm and inviting environment.

GLENN: No, you know what is a warm environment? Hell! Where there's a lake of unquenchable fire that burns but does not consume.

So anyway, the president has this authority to just take over businesses. Okay. But in Section 112 they set up a council. Like this. And this will all be put together by our new regulatory czar. And there's a council, and the duties and purposes of this council in Section 112(B), to promote market discipline by eliminating expectations on the part of shareholders, creditors and counterparties of such companies that the government will shield them from losses in the event of failure.

So we've already taken over General Motors, we've already taken over the biggest insurance company, AIG, we've already taken over the financial sector. What else have we — what else have we deemed?

PAT: Healthcare.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Healthcare.

GLENN: Healthcare. Now we have all of these things, but how this is going to work. We are giving the president more power to take companies over if they're too big to fail. We don't have to go through congress anymore. They can just do it. But there's also a council in the same bill that gives the president authority that says we're setting up a council to tell people that that is not going to happen.

Are these people, are they schizophrenic? Are they insane? Or are they from a lake of fire that burns forever but does not consume? Because consuming things is bad.

"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?"
