Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: $554,763 spent on replacing windows on a visitor's center in Washington State that closed its door three years ago. Your stimulus dollars at work. $762,372 was given to the University of North Carolina Charlotte for dance draw. What ?

PAT: What's dance draw?

GLENN: Dance draw. It's like YouTube of dance or Dance Tube.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: This will allow choreographers to explore interactive dance without having a full cast of dancers present.

PAT: Oh. Now the country's fixed.

GLENN: $762,372.

PAT: That will help the economy.

GLENN: We don't have steel mills anymore. We don't lead the world in any kind of industry anymore. We don't make refrigerators or televisions because we're going to do all the paperwork. We're going to be the finance people. Oh, no, we're not going to do that anymore. I think we're going to lead the world in dance tube.

STU: Really ? Because I was planning a run for a Constitutional amendment on choreography, but I think this pretty much takes care of it.

PAT: Does it? Do you think this is enough?

STU: I don't think we need to do more.

GLENN: We've got more. $62.5 million for a light rail tunnel under the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh. Do you know why? Go on. Ask me why.

PAT: Why, Glenn?

GLENN: Really? Do you want to know? This is a stimulus this is going to change people's lives.

STU: I want to know.

GLENN: All right. I'm going to tell you, then. They want to connect sports stadiums to the casinos.

PAT: Oh, I love of that.

GLENN: Uh huh.

PAT: I love that.

GLENN: That's going to fix America. That is fixing America. It's the light rail that I'm for. Usually I think a light rail is just a bunch of hogwash. I'm for this because of the jobs it creates and saves.

PAT: Yeah. An think of the convenience of going right from a PNC park directly to the casino.

GLENN: $73 million for two fire stations in San Antonio. $73 million for two fire stations in San Antonio. $11.2 million to convert a tiny closed down train station into a museum.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: $1.9 million to fund the study of ants.

PAT: Those are exotic ants.

GLENN: Not just regular ants. Oh, exotic ants, like the one that's living here illegally and we don't deport?

PAT: No. Glenn Beck baselessly accuses the government of studying just regular ants. No, no.

GLENN: No. You said exotic ants. They're from another country.

PAT: No, no.

GLENN: Okay. $90,000 for new sidewalks in Boynton, Oklahoma, to replace five year old sidewalks, five year old. They're five years old $90,000.

PAT: You don't want ---

GLENN: Well, the sidewalk also leads to a ditch.

STU: Yeah, but the ditch is in good shape.

GLENN: $40 million for upgraded office space and indoor parking for Kansas law makers, $40 million. $50 million for WNBA practice facilities in Connecticut. I didn't even know that the WNBA was still -- $15.8 million no bid contract to

PAT: Halliburton. Is it Halliburton? No big contract. Halliburton. Another no big contract for Halliburton.

GLENN: No, it's not Halliburton, no, but it's $15.8 million no bid contract to clean up the environmental mess that they helped create…. 762,372 to a Georgia Tech professor so he can study improvised music.

PAT: That's good.

GLENN: Improvised music.

PAT: That's great.

STU: That's creating a job, because he had a job and now he has two jobs. So

GLENN: What's great is it's improvised music. If we can take that $762,372 and combine it with the same amount to the University of North Carolina Charlotte for the dance draw, maybe we can get improvised music and dance tube

STU: Well, Glenn, if you've said it once, you've said it a thousand times. The problem with this country is preplanned music. You have to start improvising music.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

STU: It was Woodrow Wilson who created preplanned music. He's the one that did it.

GLENN: When did the player piano start? Exactly right. Around that time period

PAT: If not a little bit before.

GLENN: Because music anticipates what's coming. Do you see what I mean? They're artists. They know.

STU: Yep.

GLENN: They know. The bees know. Where's the hit the sound.

STU: Yeah. That's what happens when he says the bees know.

GLENN: And I think, really, if we're going to do the bees know, don't we all have to say the bees know

STU: That's the plan, but you didn't warn us.

GLENN: They know it and

ALL: The bees know .

GLENN: It doesn't really work. okay. Here we go. Now, this one's not going to piss you off, America. We're just going over stimulus package and how the money has been spent. $144,541 to get monkeys high on cocaine to see how they respond.

STU: That's interesting.

PAT: I didn't know.

GLENN: Is there a problem with monkeys?

PAT: You want the know what's going to happen if you get your monkeys stoned.

STU: You don't want to get them high. You don't want to do that.

GLENN: I know people get their babies stoned. I've seen the YouTube videos. I haven't seen the Dance Tube on it, but I've seen the YouTube individuals where people take they babies they should go to jail for this and blow the smoke of pot or something in the baby's face, which is always so cute when you've done that to an infant. But is somebody wasting their cocaine on their monkeys?

STU: Happens all the time. A huge problem in America.

GLENN: I mean, as a former cocaine user, I wouldn't have shared my cocaine with my best friend. And by the way, my best friend was Pat --

PAT: He never asked.

GLENN: I wouldn't have shared it. In fact, he would have probably called the police.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: $497,893 to quit smoking and get a Smart Phone. What is that?

STU: They were buying Smart Phones for people so when they felt like they might smoke, they could call someone and they could tell them not to smoke. So, that's a Smart Phone.

PAT: That's a good smoking campaign?

STU: Yeah. I think so. Maybe not the most effective.

GLENN: Why do they hate kids? Why do they hate kids? Why do people in Washington hate kids?

STU: What do you mean?

GLENN: They raised the smoking tax to be able to pay for insurance. So, everybody would stop----- smoking hurts the children.

STU: That's true.

GLENN: Why do they hate children?

PAT: That's a good point. I think you're going to like this next expenditure, though?

GLENN: $199,862 helping Serbians lobby Russian policymakers.

PAT: Siberian.

GLENN: Oh, Siberian.

PAT: It would make sense to have Serbians to lobby Russian policymakers. You want the Siberians to lobby the Russian policy maker.

GLENN: Why do we care? How is that helping our economy? Is there a plot?

STU: Creating jobs for Siberians.

GLENN: $298,543 to help predict the weather. Right now you're going well, that might be really let me finish the sentence. To help predict weather on other planets.

PAT: What are you, a planet phobe? What are you? A Zeta planet phobe? You don't want other people on other planets to anticipate what they should be wearing that day?

GLENN: Why do you hate the red planet?

PAT: Yeah. Why? Good question. Glad you brought it up.

GLENN: That's why I hate it. I hope they just cover this on TV because, you know, I only watch TV once a while in the morning and they will say, if you're traveling to Atlanta, it's going to be hot, 98 and a chance of a thunderstorm. If you happen to be going to Mars, it is, of course, going to be very cold, with a chance of really cold.

PAT: Low about 250 below zero. The high today around 219 below.

GLENN: Now, we can't tell you for sure, but we have this new technology to predict the weather on other planets.

PAT: 312 on Venus today.

GLENN: $456,663 to Cal Berkley to study global circulation in the atmosphere of Neptune. You can't make this up. 712,883 goes to scientists who are trying to create a joke machine.

PAT: I think they've already done that.

GLENN: It's called Congress.

PAT: Uh huh, uh huh.

STU: A joke machine? I totally want a joke machine. That's the best thing they've spent on it on so far.

GLENN: $500,000 to Dayton, Ohio, for microchips to track citizens' use of recycling bins. Let me tell you something, you put one of those recycling bins on my porch or moon my curb, you're not going to need a chip to track it because it will be in your ###. You can look for it there.

STU: It would be difficult.

GLENN: Oh, it might be difficult for you to keep it there, but it won't be hard for me to shove it up there.

STU: So, you wouldn't list yourself as pro recycling? I'm just trying to clarify.

GLENN: No. I just read that off of a piece of paper that was just spat out by my joke machine.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
