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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
