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.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
