Stu and Pat: Add Kagan, subtract Romer



Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

PAT: All right. A couple of things that we haven't gotten to yet. Elena Kagan was confirmed yesterday. Vote was 63 37. You know all the usual suspects, I mean, Lindsey Graham obviously voted for her.

STU: Yeah. Do you need more than that?

PAT: Do you need more? I doubt it.

STU: You get

PAT: 63 37. So that means, I don't know, how many Republicans? Eight, ten? No, twelve? No, okay, it's only three.

STU: It was only a few, yeah.

PAT: It was only three. Because it's like 58 41 or 59 41.

STU: Once the vote was secured, all the people, Scott Browns of the world who were probably on the fence were free to vote no. But, you know, she's in and we gain Elena Kagan and we lose Christina Romer, the economic adviser who is dropping out.

PAT: And one fine looking woman. I mean, what a hot babe.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: It's really a shame that we lost her.

STU: Luckily, though, we're replacing her with Kagan in the new cycle. So the hotness factor will not drop too far.

PAT: That's true.

STU: But yeah, if you don't know who she is, she is the one who authored the 8% unemployment report, remember at the beginning of the administration when they said if we get the stimulus, we're not going to see anything above 8% in unemployment. And basically it immediately was proven wrong.

PAT: Okay, so she was 2 points off. It's been 10%.

STU: What's 2.

PAT: And this past July it stayed 9.1% but we lost 131,000 jobs last month.

STU: We're still losing jobs ?

PAT: Hemorrhaging jobs. "Well, at least we're not hemorrhaging jobs anymore." Yeah, we are again. So now you own the economy, you own the jobs, you said you turned it around, you reversed the process and now the process is back to hemorrhaging jobs again. Where do you go with that? They've bitten off a really tough thing for us to chew here.

STU: They have taken ownership here.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And for the first time you are seeing that reflected in polls. There's a Rasmussen poll the other day. I believe it was the first time they had found, they asked the same question, I believe it's every month which is, who do you blame for the economy, whose problems. And it still has been Bush by a slight amount for a while. For the first time now people are blaming Obama more for the economy.

PAT: And that, of course, is unfair. John Kerry told us that.

KERRY: In the last six months I think there was even an article in the paper this week.

STU: An article in the paper?

KERRY: About people no longer blaming Bush. They are beginning to target this White House. That's a natural

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Oh, my.

KERRY: course of events.

PAT: Already?

KERRY: As you go through any administration. But I don't think it's fair to the president.

PAT: No, it's not fair.

KERRY: The president just passed I mean, think about what just happened.

PAT: I'm thinking.

KERRY: We just passed the most significant

PAT: I know.

KERRY: And important.

PAT: Sweeping.

KERRY: Regulatory reform legislation in 40, 50 years?

PAT: We just passed the most unbelievably capitalist crushing legislation ever passed in this country.

STU: We've done everything we can to make sure this country goes into the crapper for decades to come. Why is it getting blamed?

PAT: They don't appreciate that, Stu. People don't appreciate that we are fundamentally transforming America from capitalist system to a socialist one.

STU: Yeah. It is hard.

PAT: They don't appreciate it.

STU: That is a lot of heavy lifting.

PAT: And it's only been 19 months and already people are starting to blame this president. This president has nothing to do with the economy. It's George W. Bush!

STU: With the exception of cap and trade, they've had pretty much everything they opened for in this first 18 months.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: That has been passed.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Healthcare and the stimulus. And the stimulus was nothing but 15,000 projects that they have wanted for years and years and years. And then financial and everything else, I mean, how much do you need? You spent trillions of our dollars. How much do you need until maybe it's partially your responsibility?

PAT: And already they're starting to blame us. I don't understand it! It's only been a couple of days, like 795.

STU: (Laughing). You've had complete control.

PAT: Complete control.

STU: No one can stop you.

PAT: Everything, yeah.

STU: Nobody can stop you. The occasional filibuster only since Scott Brown is possible, but really it's been an essentially unfettered path for them to do whatever they wanted for two years almost.

PAT: Crazy, yeah.

STU: You know, they still are perplexed that anyone would even look at them for blame.

PAT: Which is unbelievable.

STU: They are just shocked. They can't understand it.

PAT: You look at it and you see it and you read about it and you hear it every single day and it's still hard to believe. It's really hard. And they get away from it, from the rest of the press, other than us, you know, talk radio and Fox, they get away with it.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
