GLENN: Looking at Stu's got his face in

Broke.

STU: I do. This is my first I just got this copy, Page 329 talks about your

admiral, admiral thing here.

GLENN: Yeah. I have the raw stats from I didn't look. Where is it in the book?

STU: 329. The department this is talking, defense department is typical of all

government entities that has become too bloated and top heavy. The department

currently consumes about 40% of its annual bunt in overhead costs. Goes through

some other stats here and then it talks about the Navy where there are now more

admirals, 315 flag officers than ships.

PAT: 315 admirals.

GLENN: Flag officers, yeah.

STU: Flag officers. 264 ships.

PAT: I thought there was like one admiral. I thought there was, you know, like

or at least a couple, you know.

STU: That's like companies because there's one vice president of the United

States. But every company has, like, 50 vice presidents of something.

GLENN: Well, you need admiral. I mean, let's not I don't want this to seem like

we're coming down hard on the military, because we're not.

STU: No.

GLENN: The military is the only thing in the federal government that actually

works. And the only reason why when it doesn't work is because the politicians

get involved.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: That's the only reason really.

STU: Yeah. And obviously you can't have, like, exactly the amount of admirals

than ships because when one's sick, they should still be able to go out and do

stuff.

GLENN: You don't have an admiral on every ship, though.

STU: Well, why not? Why wouldn't you have an admiral on every ship?

PAT: You have captains. They have captains of ships.

GLENN: That's my point. We don't need, we don't need the same number of admirals

as we do ships. What I'm saying here is look, I'm not a I'm not a military guy.

STU: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: But I for this, for this book, for this particular chapter on defense, we

talked to some really, really great military guys and we also talked to people

like what's his name from Blackwater and said, you know, if you're going to run

it like a private company, how do you do it? And so these are, these are out of

the you know, these are different ideas. But it's going to take a different idea

to be able to run our country and to be able to change and move in the direction

that we need to move in.

STU: I'm interested in your case on this. I have not read it yet, but this is a

case that you and I argue about a lot.

GLENN: Yeah, because you're like, no, I want to keep spending money on defense,

I want to keep spending money on defense.

STU: Yeah. That's the one place I don't want to cut anything from.

GLENN: Right. And I don't, either, because I believe in strong defense.

STU: Right, I know you do.

GLENN: But there are things that we can do.

STU: And still keep, still keep it working as well as we need it to. I

understand. I like to see

GLENN: I haven't read honestly I haven't read the book since the final edits and

we were, like, 300 pages, typical Glenn book, like 300 pages over. Is the did

they leave the did they leave the idea of just, you know, just changing the

planes that are flying over Afghanistan? Right now we can you know, we do

patrols, and if you just changed from a jet to a prop plane, in six months in

fuel costs alone you still have the jets, you know, if you have to do dogfights

but we're not really dogfighting anybody. So if you change to props and have the

jets on the ground so if something happens, you can get those, you scramble the

jets. But if you just changed to prop planes, in six months in just fuel cost

savings, you could pay for the prop planes. And then leave the prop planes there

for the Afghani defense. So then you train them in prop planes and then we take

our big sophisticated jets home.

STU: Yeah, that is on there, Page 328 I'm being told.

GLENN: I mean, so I mean, it's good stuff.

STU: What if you go with hang gliders?

GLENN: Common sense.

STU: If you go with hang gliders, you'd save even more money and then you could

just have people just jump off those really tall mountains down there and just

fly across the

PAT: Goat, if you just had them ride the backs of goats.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

PAT: I mean, then you're

GLENN: Quite honestly at this point, yes.

PAT: I don't care, really.

GLENN: I'm willing take our military out and let them patrol with goats or hang

gliders or whatever they want to do.

STU: What about goats on hang gliders? I'm saying

GLENN: That's up to the people in Afghanistan. You know, it's time we did not

unleash our military and we discredit our military by not allowing them to do

their job. We discredit the honor and integrity and the memory of all those who

have lost their lives. How many lives have we lost because we didn't fight it,

really fight it? And this is a lie that comes again from the progressive left.

That, no, you can't fight because you'll just make things worse. Did we make

things worse in Germany? We burned Dresden down to the ground. Did we in the end

make it worse for Germans or better for Germans? Which was it?

You know what we do you know what we do to our military now? We make them into

the neutered parents that we have here in America. "Well, we don't keep score.

No, we shouldn't keep score. Well, no, no, no, don't spank your kids. No, don't

discipline your kids. Just sit down and talk to your kids. Find out what's wrong

with your kids, what they're thinking, what you've done wrong really. As a

parent you've probably screwed up your kids."

PAT: Do you know how many times they hear the word "No" by the time they're 2?

STU: Not enough.

PAT: It's like 5,000 times. No one can handle that negativity, no one.

STU: 500 times too few.

PAT: No one.

GLENN: That's what we're doing.

PAT: That's the kind of nonsense we hear.

GLENN: And that's the kind of nonsense that we're now running our military with.

And it's come from the same source, the progressive left politician. Stop.

Enough. You want to you want a plan to restore our trust, our truth and our

treasure. Broke is available in bookstores everywhere on Tuesday. You can order

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
