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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
