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.


STU: Of Barack Obama, of Tim Geithner.


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.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
