Obamanomics: back AT the brink

GLENN: Now the Fed has they're expected today to down grade the outlook of the United States.  I'm sorry.  Wasn't everything fixed?

PAT:  Yeah.  I thought we went    I thought we came back from the brink.  Isn't that the  

GLENN:  I thought that was all over. 

STU:  Yeah.  There was some   

OBAMA:  We have pulled the economy back from the brink.  We got good news last week showing that for the first time in over a year, the economy was actually growing.

PAT:  Uh huh.

GLENN:  So, I'm sorry.  So, what's    so, what happened?  What happened?  Because I thought we pulled it back.  I thought for sure we pulled it back from the brink.  I thought that was over.

PAT:  Yeah.  Sure seemed like it.

OBAMA:  We brought the global economy back from the brink. 

OBAMA:  We have pulled the economy back from the brink. 

OBAMA:  I can stand here with confidence and say that we have pulled this economy back from the brink. 

PAT:  Wait.  What?

GLENN:  It doesn't sound like    it sounds like we're back at the brink.  What happened?  Is there something    did I miss something that brought us back to the brink?

PAT:  Well, yeah, George W. Bush.

GLENN:  Well, I know George W. Bush.  I know that

STU:  He pulled it right back.

GLENN:  Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

PAT:  Sitting there in Dallas writing a book, he pulled it right back to the brink. 

GLENN:  We would never recover    we would never recover if we didn't have the $787 billion stimulus package, right?

PAT:  Right, yes.

GLENN:  All right.  Well, first we have to go back to George W. Bush.  We'll never survive if we don't have the Tarp package.

PAT:  Yes.  That was true.  It was the    it was the plane headed into the side of the mountain.  Okay.  So  

GLENN:  We're in the going to survive.  So, we did that.  Well, we survived.  Then, unless we do the $787 billion stimulus package, we may never recover.

PAT:  Uh huh.  Okay.  That's right.

GLENN:  And if we do the $787 billion stimulus package   

STU:  Unemployment will never go above 8%.

GLENN:  Never go above 8%.  Okay.  But it did.

PAT:  Just 2 points, though.

GLENN:  Then we have to be able to give confidence to Americans and American companies that we're going to be able to pay for health care and that's the only other part.  When we have that, then we'll be okay.

PAT:  Health care was instrumental in fixing the economy.  Remember that?  It was  

GLENN:  No.  I mean  

PAT:     crucial.

GLENN:  That's what they said

STU:  Yeah, it was crucial.

GLENN:  But it hasn't fixed   

STU:  Well, it did for awhile.

GLENN:  It did because we brought it    between those two things, we brought it back from the brink.

OBAMA:  We brought the global economy back from the brink. 

OBAMA:  We have pulled the economy back from the brink.

OBAMA:  I can stand here with confidence and say that we have pulled this economy back from the brink.

PAT:  So, all that happened.  Pulled it right on back.

GLENN:  Okay.  Yeah.  But now we have Freddie and Fannie and Freddie and Fannie need    what is it?    an additional how much?  $1.8 billion but we're looking at maybe just giving them, oh, I don't know, the candy store, as well?  Just opening up and going ahead and  

PAT:  Was it only a billion or was it a trillion?  The a billion just doesn't sound like  

GLENN:  No.  I think they need another    what is it?    $1.8 billion just, like, right now, but they're looking at  

PAT:  That's not bad.

GLENN:  No, no.

PAT:  That's not bad.

GLENN:  They need it today.

PAT:  That's not bad.  At least it's in the a trillion.  It's not 100 trillion.

GLENN:  It's not a trillion because last year it was estimate that they would need $1 trillion, but this year, since we've been brought back from the brink

PAT:  Yeah.

GLENN:  As estimated they need $3.1 trillion, but the good news is they'll have that .1 right away.

PAT:  Oh.

GLENN:  Uh huh.

PAT:  Okay.  Good.

GLENN:  Stu, what part of the brink did we miss?

STU:  Well what, you missed was that he aid he was going to pull    he had pulled us back from the brink but he never said that he wouldn't push us over past the brink later.  He just said he pulled us back from the brink for a minute.  We could easily be back at the brink or over the brink at any time.

PAT:  But it wouldn't be his fault, would it.

PAT:  No.  Obviously you covered that the Bush    the book is coming out, right.

PAT:  It's Bush, uh huh.

GLENN:  Here's the good news.  According to "USA Today"    I hate that conservative rag.  According to "USA Today," Federal civil servants earned an average pay in benefits of    an average of $123,049.

PAT:  Uh huh.

GLENN:  You, in the private sector, made $61,051.  So, it is official now.  Obama is asking for a 1.4% across the board pay hike for 2011 for these people who now officially make double, on average than the private sector, double.

STU:  I thought the rich needed to pay their fair share.  Why are they getting all these evil raises?

GLENN:  Well, they're not rich.  They're only    they're only making double the private sector.  So   

STU:  That seems like a lot.

PAT:  Yeah.  You're not evil until you're making triple.

GLENN:  Now.  When you're making $250,000, then you're rich. 

STU:  But that's making more than the person who has a doctorate degree.  I mean, $150,000 is  

GLENN:  I understand that, but this is just the average salary for the government worker and they're not even on the top of the food chain.  You know, you have to remember that Congress makes 173,000.  You, you paying their salary, you only make 61,000.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
