GLENN: I have what I believe is shocking news, not unforeseen but shocking nonetheless. This is an indictment on this presidency, this congress, most importantly the media. Breaking news from Fox Business, so you know it just can't be true. The SEC, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from Fox Business Network and the founding partner of law firm Mintz and Gold, LLC, the SEC ‑‑ just so you understand, the SEC is the Securities & Exchange Commission which oversees all mergers, all acquisitions, the exchanges, security, the credit default swaps, all of it. When people suspected that Bernie Madoff was doing something wrong, they went to the SEC. It was the SEC that dropped the ball on Bernie Madoff. The SEC has the power to close you down, and this new financial regulation has given them much, much more power.

Freedom of Information Act now is being denied. Why? Because the SEC says now the new financial regulation law exempts the SEC from Freedom of Information Act. You have a gigantic new all‑powerful arm of the government that no longer has to answer any of your pesky questions. Kiss transparency goodbye. This has never, never happened in America. They no longer have to respond to your questions or the media's questions. If they want to choose to shut somebody down because there's irregularities, they no longer have to provide any information to anyone on why, what did you do, what did you see, wait a minute, something sees wrong. If there's any irregularity going on with the SEC, you can no longer ask any questions. This is a story from the SEC that has just broken. This is no longer, this isn't, "Oh, gee, I wonder if." This is what they are now doing, and it is law.

PAT: I'm having a hard time believing this because I remember the words of Barack Obama pretty clearly in my head.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: The way to make government responsible is to hold it accountable, and the way to make government accountable is to make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they are being made.

PAT: Yeah.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And whether their interests are being well served.

GLENN: Not anymore.

PAT: Well, it's so transparent. This is a part of transparency.

GLENN: No, but that was just that one time.

PAT: This is like opaque, not transparent.

GLENN: This is slam the door in the face. They will tell you who's bad and who's good. You don't question them at all. The SEC just settled, let's see, just settled a $755,000 lawsuit that had to be settled because they used Freedom of Information Act requests in the lawsuit. The case was closed in 2006. This year, blah, blah‑blah, was forced to pay $28 million to settle insider trading charges relating to shares of Microsoft.

These guys can charge anything now, anything. And if there's any irregularity on their part, it doesn't matter. The press is blocked from looking into anything now in Security and Exchange.

Gang, how do you prove Crime, Inc.? How do you prove cap and trade is a scam? How do you prove any of it if you can't look into any of it?

"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?"
