Glenn Beck: This is so Cloward & Piven

GLENN: Cut 223, this is Barack Obama. He says the GOP lacks faith in the American people. Listen to this.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: A long time there's been a tradition.

GLENN: Yeah.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Under both Democratic and Republican presidents.

GLENN: Yes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To offer relief to the unemployed.

GLENN: Yes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That was certainly the case under my predecessor when Republican senators voted several times to extend emergency unemployment benefits.

GLENN: How long?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But right now these benefits, benefits that are often the person's sole source of income while they are looking for work.

GLENN: Yes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Are in jeopardy.

GLENN: Yes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I have to say after years of championing policies that turned a record surplus into a massive deficit, the same people who didn't have any problem spending hundreds of billions of dollars on tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans are now saying we shouldn't offer relief to middle class Americans like Jim or Leslie or Denise who really need help.

PAT: May I just jump in and say that a tax cut is not spending? A tax cut does not spend money? That money is not yours, Barack Obama. It is ours. And when you give a tax cut, that doesn't mean that you are spending money. We're not spending more! You're getting less from us!

GLENN: Congress spends money.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: We earn money. You take money. That's how it works. We earn money.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: You take money; you spend money. But then when you don't have enough money, you raise taxes to take more from us.

PAT: And here's the sneaky little secret that they always seem to leave out. Every time you give tax cuts to the so called richest Americans and by the way, Bush's tax cuts were for everybody across the spectrum you increase revenue in this country. You increase revenue. So you actually have more to spend as a federal government when you give tax cuts.

GLENN: But that is not their intention.

PAT: Hacks me off.

GLENN: That is not their intention. That is not this man's intention.

PAT: No, it isn't.

GLENN: This man's intention is to spend us into oblivion and collapse the system. This is so Cloward and Piven, I mean, they might as well just have Cloward or Piven run the country. Why don't, why don't we just take Frances Fox Piven and make her the treasury secretary? Why not just be open about it?

PAT: I'd rather have Cloward run it instead.

GLENN: All he's saying you have all this money with the TARP, you have all this money you haven't spent. You have all this money of the stimulus that you haven't spent. Spend it there. Spend it there. But you don't actually have any money. There is no money in TARP! There is no money in the stimulus! That's borrowed money! There is no more money!

STU: I love how, too, that they are saying they are going to not they keep saying that only the rich people are going to have the tax cuts go away. So they want to still lower them for the middle class and the lower levels of income and they keep saying that over and over again, but they don't want to bring up the argument before the elections because then you are talking tax hikes before an election. So they are just basically you just need to trust them that after the election, they are going to take they are going to make sure those middle class tax cuts are permanent because that's their history. Of course they are going to no, they are not going to do it.

PAT: They have not done that.

STU: They are not going to do it before the election because they don't want to have a tax discussion before the election.

GLENN: They can't do it. They cannot do it.

PAT: They are not going to.

GLENN: Listen to me. Hear what I'm saying. They cannot do that. Because we have to go in for new loans. Our loans are coming due next year. So they cannot. They have to tell the international banking community, they have to show the rest of the world for sovereign funds that we're serious. And so they have to show an increase in revenue. So they are going to let those expire. They must do that because they are not going to stop spending. Then what they are going to do is they are going to cut certain things. He's going to let certain things cut be cut. But he's only going to let those things be cut that will actually really hurt you. I think he's going to let just those things slip by that will actually really those are the only things he will let go by.

PAT: They are going to cut the border patrol for one. We got that on the list today. But we haven't gotten to the part where he says he lacks faith. So maybe

GLENN: I can't take much more.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Over the past few weeks a majority of senators have tried not once, not twice but three times to extend emergency relief on a temporary basis.

GLENN: Three strikes you're out.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Each time a partisan minority in the Senate has used parliamentary maneuvers to block a vote

GLENN: Hold on just a second. You don't have a problem with parliamentary maneuvers, do you, Mr. Healthcare? You have a problem with that one?

STU: That's an unbelievable argument coming from this dope.

GLENN: It is, gosh.

STU: And let's not forget the temporary relief we're talking about is two years of unemployment benefits right now! Two years!

STU: Yeah, what's the limit on that?

PAT: How long? How long does it need to go?

STU: They want it to be unlimited.

PAT: This is like Katrina.

GLENN: You know, the president right now should be saying, look, I want you to get back into your churches, I want you to get back into your community organizations, I want you to be able to take care of your neighbor; the government cannot do this! The government is out of money! You're going to have to start helping each other! You're going to have to start getting involved with your own community and your own charities and your own churches! I urge you to give more to your church. Let me do it since nobody else will, please, please. If you have money, look at charity as an investment in people. Find the charity that gives the highest percentage not to the structure or the administrative cause but to people. The one that you can give $1 and the most of that dollar goes directly to people, find a charity and help these charities. Be careful on who you give to. But if you trust your church, give it to your church, help your neighbors out.

STU: Well, there's another way to look at

GLENN: Hang on just a second. There's one other thing that I have to say to you. Not you.

STU: Oh, sorry.

GLENN: Something else I have to say to you. Please

PAT: Me?

STU: Sarah or Jeffy? They are both here, too. They can hear you.

PAT: Are you talking to Joe? Can you go get Joe?

GLENN: Can you turn off their microphone so I can have a talk with the listener, please? I just thank you. Here's what I want to say. Please be good stewards of your money. I told you this how many years ago? Two years ago, three years ago? I said, the Republican's going to come to stake be at stake and there is going to be a we're going to be broke. And there must be someone with known to be able to reset it. There's got to be somebody with money. Please, please be a good steward with the things that you have, the blessings that you have.

All right, clowns, go ahead.

PAT: Well, we've got 25 seconds. Can we get through the last 25 seconds?

GLENN: I don't know. I just really wanted to, "I don't believe in the American..."

PAT: Well, because the whole thing was, I believe. Nauseated.

GLENN: Don't bring up my eyes. Now you have to bring up the fact that I'm possibly going blind? I'm possibly going blind. In case you just joined, the update on this is that the liberal blogs have decided that I am only using what I believe is a sure bet on total blindness.

STU: That's not what the doctor said at all.

PAT: He said it may be, may not.

STU: Over a long period of time.

GLENN: Total blindness. It could happen at any moment.

STU: That's not a

GLENN: They are saying shhh. They are now accusing me of saying that I'm

PAT: Exploiting it essentially, right?

GLENN: No, no. Shhh.

PAT: I'm sorry.

STU: That's what they are saying.

GLENN: But I am going blind. It could be in the next 15 minutes. I would not tune out.

PAT: By 10:30? Eastern time.

GLENN: Eastern time. I could go blind.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: And it will happen in a dramatic fashion right here on the air. Don't miss a second of it.

PAT: That's 7:30 Pacific, 8:30 Mountain.

GLENN: But don't shhh, don't, please don't miss a second no matter what time.

PAT: 9:30 Central.

GLENN: And buy my books because it may be the last book that I'll ever be able to see.

STU: The doctor didn't say anything about your books.

GLENN: I don't shhh. Quiet. You don't know. You weren't there. It was a very heart wrenching moment that the blogs are trying now to say that I'm exploiting. I would never do that. Please watch my TV show. Buy my books. Come see me in concert.

STU: None of that is relevant.

PAT: You have a concert now? Are you doing a concert?

STU: Musical.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: I would like I always wanted to learn how to play the piano.

PAT: Now you can't even see the keys.

GLENN: I can't see the keys, or soon anyway.

PAT: Of course, Stevie Wonder can play the piano.

STU: Yeah, and you can see the keys fine now to learn in that time.

PAT:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: People who are out of work much needed relief. These leaders in the Senate who are advancing a misguided notion.

GLENN: Mmm, misguided notion.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That emergency relief somehow discourages people from looking for a job should talk to these folks.

GLENN: Yes. Yes, they should. Are they in white coats standing behind him? Is he tearing up here?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That attitude I think reflects a lack of faith in the American people.

GLENN: Oh, it does.

PAT: Isn't that priceless? That's priceless.

GLENN: No, hang on just a second.

PAT: I love that.

GLENN: No, please.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: He doesn't have lack of faith in the American people.

PAT: No. No, you are right.

GLENN: Government is the only one that can solve this crisis.

STU: He says that every day almost.

GLENN: His wife says that we have to have more broccoli.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Only government, only government, only government, only government, only government, only government

GLENN: Hang on.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Only government, only government, only government, only government.

GLENN: The people only government can.

PAT: I mean, we can't, we can't eat our own food, we can't decide where our thermostat should be, we can't drive the cars we want.

STU: Can't have the electricity that we want.

PAT: We can't have electricity, we can't own insurance, we can't take of our healthcare, we can't make decisions on our own mortgages.

STU: Can't keep it at 72 degrees, we can't

PAT: Are you kidding me?

STU: This guy, all he does is have no faith in the American people to make their own decisions.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Only government, only government, only government, only government, only government.

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:
