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.

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences


  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.


  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.


  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
