Glenn Beck: Pelosi hasn't drained the swamp

The Overton Window, a thriller by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Well, it's like President Obama saying that Charlie Rangel should just step down. He's very concerned now. He's very concerned now about the ethics charges.

PAT: Well, it's only been three years.

GLENN: It's only been three years.

PAT: It's taking a while for it to sink in.

GLENN: That's all it's been.

PAT: Yeah. And now he's concerned.

GLENN: And now what he's trying to do is give Mr. Rangel an opportunity to bow out gracefully instead of getting the slap on the wrist for things that you and I would be in jail for.

PAT: Oh, you know what they could do to this guy?

GLENN: Oh, no, what could they do?

PAT: They could actually censure you.

GLENN: Shut up.

PAT: No, they could.


PAT: They could do that.

GLENN: Now, you'd be in jail, right?

PAT: No, no, but you'd be ashamed.

GLENN: No, no. You'd be in jail.

PAT: I would be.

GLENN: You'd be in jail.

PAT: Of course I would be.

GLENN: Sure.

PAT: Of course, I would have been in jail three years ago.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: But Charlie won't be in jail.

GLENN: Sure, no.

PAT: But he'll feel naughty for a few minutes.

GLENN: Yeah. Well

PAT: He'll feel naughty.

GLENN: Now Maxine Waters is also in trouble.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And I didn't see this one coming.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Did you see this one coming?

PAT: Not at all.

GLENN: Now, what did she do?

PAT: Well, I don't know.

GLENN: Ethics violations.

PAT: Ethics violations, of course.

GLENN: This is the deal on the bank in Boston. Remember her husband owned stock in this bank and she was I think on the board of this bank and do you remember, the people came this was, what, two years ago? This was right after TARP and people came in and they were like, "Hey, so maybe we should have a bailout, they didn't qualify for it and they were like, yes, yes, Maxine says yes. So that might be something you should look into maybe a year and a half ago.

PAT: Well, this is all part of Nancy Pelosi's promise to drain the swamp.

GLENN: Oh, really?

PELOSI: Drain the swamp means to turn this congress into the most honest and open congress in history. That is my pledge. That is what I intend to do.

GLENN: That is her pledge. No, it is.

PAT: That's her pledge.

GLENN: She's going to get some diamond encrusted ice picks and she's going to go and take some of the ice down at Chelsea Clinton's wedding. I mean, which one is more believable?

PAT: I think the ice picks.

GLENN: I think the ice picks are.

PAT: The diamond encrusted ice picks.

GLENN: I think they are, believe it or not, more believable.

PAT: Because I didn't believe Pelosi at all that she was totally going to drain the swamp. I totally believe that, you know, Stu's diamond encrusted ice pick story.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"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.
