Glenn Beck: Highest youth unemployment ever

GLENN: I want to tell you a little bit about I was telling you about the minimum wage and how minimum wage, we said, would be a problem. Bernays came out don't even start. Bernays came out and he said, basically, you create the problem and then you have the solution all ready to go. So, when people say, Oh, my gosh, fix this, you push them Cass Sunstein would say nudge them into where you want them to go.

Now, I told you a couple of years ago that the jobs for youth going to be in trouble. Well, now we are. We have the highest youth unemployment rate, I think, on record. Well, what do we do about it? What's happening? Who's got a solution? Does anybody have a solution for what we're going to do for jobs for the youth of our nation? Oh, yes. Oh, yes, yes, they do. And here is the wonderful, wonderful solution and it's not just from one source. It's from several, several sources. The first one is Andy Stern's solution from SEIU, which is really weird because it's exactly the same solution from the Center For American Progress, which is exactly the same solution that came out of the White House in a trial balloon. Well? You don't understand that?

STU: It's so weird because it's all the same one and they're all these different groups. What are the odds that they come up with the same idea? It's got to be, like, 50,000 to 1?

GLENN: I know. It's really, really strange, but Center For American Progress same out with a report in November. Andy Stern comes out with it 10 months later. They the Center For American Progress said national service is about unlocking potential as it is about meeting needs, it's not a strategy to create short term jobs but, rather, a proven pathway to create long term unemployment opportunities for youth who might remain jobless or unemployed in dead end low skilled jobs if they are employed. They said for less than 1.5 billion Congress could engage 150,000 individuals in national service for one year term of service, cost $14,000 per individual. Now, here's what Andy Stern has said. That was from the Center For American Progress. Assuming that the average annual cost of $15,000 per person, for just 46,000 for $46.5 billion, we could offer every 16 to 24 year old a job in national service. He's got a new idea to create now 12 million new jobs. Make good environmental citizens out of them. Today I promise you under my leadership the Department of Education will be committed partner to the national effort to build a more environmentally literate and responsible society. This according to Arnie Duncan. So, we have Arnie Duncan saying let's come up with ways to make environmental citizens out of the youth. We have Center For American Progress saying let's give jobs to youth and Andy Stern saying, yeah, let's create $12 million. For the youth. This is as coincidental as when Cass Sunstein wrote about, you know, maybe restaurants should just replace french fries with carrots in his book Nudge and then, coincidentally, the President's wife says she's advised for her children by a doctor that she should replace french fries with carrots and maybe that would be a good idea for restaurant owners to do. What are the odds? What are the odds? You'll hear this idea from several different sources and then all of a sudden someone will really step up to the plate at the right tame and say, Hey, I have this idea.

STU: It almost sounds like a consensus, the way you're describing it. All these people are saying the same thing?

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: Exactly the way we should go, then.

GLENN: Some might say it's C O N. Some might even say that it's another word that just is spelled C O N, but that's just not for me to say. That would be for the American Center For American Progress to issue a report on and then maybe Andy Stern could come out with another idea that seems suspiciously similar to that and then maybe Van Jones can come out with an idea and finally, the first lady can come out with her idea, all of them exactly the same, some of them word for word. Wouldn't that be wild? Seems to be happening a lot lately. You know what they say, though, great minds think alike. CO N. What? I'm letting you finish the word or just leave it at that, whichever you prefer. Consensus, conspiracy, con job. Hey, whatever. I'm easy.

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
