Glenn Beck: Dems still blaming Bush

GLENN: According to a new poll out, President Barack Obama and the Democrats own the bailout and the economy now, which I guess is why John Kerry was out this weekend. He was out this weekend saying, "You know it's really unfair to the president that people now are starting to say that George Bush didn't start all this." Who was saying that, that he didn't start all this? Just saying it's time to get over, it's time to grow a set.

STU: I don't think he started it by any means, but he didn't stop it, which is what we were hoping he would do.

PAT: Accelerated it.

STU: Yes. And that's not, that's not good.

PAT: No.

STU: But we've seen a further acceleration of that to a level that no one except for maybe Glenn has ever imagined.

GLENN: I did.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And I'm imagining what's coming next, and it ain't good. Now deflation is coming. Inflation was coming if they could start the whole thing, but they can't restart the engine. So now deflation is coming. Now a second ‑‑ what happened to us already where you, you know, where your home value went down, you lost that and everything else? That's coming again from this point, and what they are going to do is they are going to immediately throw in more dollars and more money to stimulate, to hold it up, to prop it up and everything else.

They are talking now about Fannie and Freddie, $1 trillion. That doesn't cover Fannie and Freddie. That just, that's a Band‑Aid on Fannie and Freddie. A trillion dollars in Band‑Aid for Freddie and Fannie. And so now, I mean, how do you get out of this? How do you possibly get out of this? You don't, not with ‑‑ you get out of this with the genius of the American people. That's how you get out of it. You have to reinvent your way out. How are you going to pay all of these debts off?

Do you know, I think it's by next year 43 cents on every dollar will be borrowed? That's incredible. And we haven't even hit the ‑‑ I'm just looking ‑‑ I'm sorry, ADD boy. Inflation will remain subdued over the next three years. Bernanke is now saying this live. Yeah, how about, how about deflation, Ben? How about deflation?

Does anybody have a doubt that if we just let people do their job that we would go through rough times but we would get our way out of this? Do you have any doubt in your mind that the genius of the American people would create something new that would get us out? I find it amazing that green jobs, we know they don't work because we watched Spain, yet we're doing them. Healthcare, we know it doesn't work because we watched every country but most recently England. It doesn't work, yet we're doing it. Giant pensions, we know it doesn't work with a whole bunch of people on a federal payroll because we're watching Greece and yet we're doing it. What... what game plan are we working off of? I mean, I can't think of ‑‑ Democrats, I'm asking you, what game plan are you working on? Have you answered the charge, "Well, wait a minute, that didn't work in England, so what's the difference here? Well, wait a minute, that doesn't work in grease, so what's the difference here? Well, wait a minute, that didn't work in Spain but what's the difference here?" Answer that. If you can answer that and you say, oh, well, because, you know, Tim Geithner has... flying magic monkeys in his butt and they are going to fly out at any point and they are going to sprinkle the pixie dust all over things."

STU: I don't think that would work at all. That seems completely unbelievable.

GLENN: Quite honestly that gives me more hope than the plan we're on. At least I have some hope. I feel like, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, the flying monkeys are going to come out of his butt any minute."

STU: Isn't this a matter of faith, Glenn? You just talked about the genius of the American people and they talk about that, too. They just talk about the genius of their government.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Of Barack Obama, of Tim Geithner.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Of Ben Bernanke, all these people. They put their faith in the genius of the elected officials or some of them unelected to run things.

GLENN: Can I ask you, where does genius come from? Where does genius come from? How are people ‑‑ what is the mother of invention?

STU: Necessity.

PAT: Necessity.

GLENN: Necessity is the mother of ‑‑ so when something is necessity, when something is pressing down on people, that's when genius kicks in. Somebody says, "Well, wait a minute, I can fix that." You know the thing with socialism? It never lets anybody really fail. It just traps you in this zone like we're in right now where you are like, well, I can't really do anything about it. I can't really do that. I mean, if I went and I risked it all, the government could change all the rules and so I could lose it all and not gain on the upside, either, because they will never really let me have an upside, either, because if I have the upside, well, then they will just take it all. So one way or another I lose. So I guess I'll just stand here and wait for something to happen. And so genius isn't allowed to kick in because you are trapped in this mediocrity. You are trapped in exactly ‑‑ this is as good as it gets, gang. Under socialism this is as good as it gets.

"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?"
