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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
