STU: Glenn wanted this audio. This is that number, Glenn, you were talking

about, with the millions of jobs that they're fooling with constantly. This is

an example of it. Monica Crowley is talking to Bill Press who completely

butchers the stat 25 different ways but even the correct way is not accurate.

But here's the audio.

VOICE: "Excuse me. You have a very chronically high unemployment rate. You have

a president who looked like right after the trillion dollar stimulus he checked

out on the jobs issue. When you talk about compromise, there's nothing in this

man's character or political makeup to suggest moderation."

VOICE: "You can't ignore it. You may want to ignore it."

VOICE: "He's created more than a trillion dollars to no effect."

VOICE: "He created more jobs than George Bush did in eight years."

STU: More jobs in 20 months.

GLENN: He says 2.3 million jobs created.

PAT: No, he said 3.2. That's the created or saved nonsense.

GLENN: So let's go through it. And, by the way, that contrail, definitely not a

rocket that was launched, it was a paper airplane that a whale ingested and then

shot out of its blow hole. Anyway, go ahead.

PAT: Wow, that's cool.

STU: Here's the actual numbers. 3.2 million jobs he's created since he took

office. According to the BLS Household Survey, there are 137.8 million total

workers in January of 2001 when Bush took over.

PAT: 137.1.

STU: When he left, there was 142.2 million workers. That's an increase, an

increase of 4.4 million.

PAT: 4.4 million increase.

STU: So Obama took office with that number of 142.2 million. Currently, we're at

139.1 million. That is a 3.1 million job decrease.

PAT: That sounds like less. That's a decrease in jobs.

STU: Since he was --

PAT: Since he came into office.

STU: Three million decrease versus a 4.4 million job increase.

GLENN: Where is the 3.2 million jobs

PAT: Created or saved. Add those in.

STU: Could be saved.

GLENN: Give me -- so where is the --

STU: So the stat he's trying to talk about, which he's inaccurately talking

about, is this claim by progressives that in 2010 Obama has created more jobs in

the private sector than Bush did throughout his entire eight years. To unfold

that statistic, what you have to do is ignore all of 2009. In fact, you have to

ignore every month that he's lost jobs. You just ignore those up until the

beginning of 2010. Then you start including Obama as being responsible in 2010.

And you take all of that and add it up. Now, so you take only the gains from the

Obama Administration and then you look at the gains and the losses of the Bush

Administration, and if you compare those two numbers, you still don't get there.

You have to go to the private sector instead and you also have to go to the

establishment survey instead of the household survey. So if you could just do

all of those things then you can get close to that number. But at that point

you've just twisted -- what value is there.

GLENN: Here's the thing -- there's no reason, seriously, is there more?

STU: No, you're right. There is no reason to keep going.

GLENN: There's no reason to keep going on it. There's no reason, because when we

were first starting to go into Van Jones. I've told this story before. But it's

important to repeat now. When we first started to go into Van Jones, we had so

much information on Van Jones. I have stuff that will melt your eyes on Van

Jones. But I don't know if I have it in context. I don't know if I have it

completely right. This guy's been scrubbed. Who scrubbed him? Soros. So you

don't know. And we thought do we present this or not? Pat and I both went home

and we both prayed on it and so did Joe. The next day we all came in and we all

had the same feeling. One way or another we all came to the same thing: Not

enemies of mine, enemies of his. Van Jones is an enemy of the rights of God. God

gave rights. So God will take care of it. God will take care of it. All we have

to do is stick to the facts. You don't need to argue. You don't need to bash.

Nothing. Don't go out on a limb. They will destroy themselves. And every single

time it's happened. They're destroying themselves. The media is destroying

themselves. Do you really think that MSNBC or NBC will survive this? Do you

think they'll survive it? If Obama, if this thing comes apart and sanity rules,

MSNBC and NBC are over, because they chose sides. They chose sides. Do you

really think that the American people are going to listen to someone saying, are

you kidding me? He's created more jobs and he's been better for the average

person than George Bush was when people are having a hard time finding a job,

when there's 20 million people unemployed or underemployed in this nation. At

some point the lies and the propaganda don't work. That's why they need strife

and violence. Did you see what happened in London? Did you see what's happening

in London today? They're rioting. They're burning on the campuses because

they're saying we have to raise tuition. First of all, the last thing we have to

raise is tuition. That has increased more in cost than our healthcare has. And

the government is right in with it. They're adding pressure. That's all they're

doing is adding pressure. So the last thing we need is a raise in tuition costs.

STU: What precedent do you have, though, of keeping interest rates artificially

low and loaning money to people to buy things causing a bubble? I don't

understand. What possible precedent is there for that sort of activity? Is that

not exactly that? What's happening with colleges? They give you these

ridiculously low --

GLENN: But we were asleep. We were asleep. Maybe it's just me and I'm living in

a dream world, but I don't think I am. Americans are not stupid. Please, trust

in what Thomas Jefferson said. The American people will get it wrong. But

eventually they will wake up and they'll figure it out. They're figuring it out.

And the more that these lies are put on top of each other, and on top of each

other, the more they'll be exposed. Now, so you know, people will harden their

positions. And that's the real danger. Because that's what gets people to just

kill other people. They won't even listen anymore. They just are running on

blind hatred. And we're not at that point. We are with some, but we're not at

that point with the vast, vast majority of the left or the right. We must be

different. We must know that in the end love wins and hate causes others to

kill. And we must not -- we must remain open-minded. We must keep our minds open

and nimble and understand that we don't know all the ins and outs yet. What we

used to believe two years ago, many of us no longer believe. So what are we

going to believe two years from now? I don't know. Scares the hell out of me to

think what I'm going to believe in two years from now. Look at all of us. Stu,

two years ago you would have said, correct me if I'm wrong, what you believe

today is crazy. Would you not?

STU: Yeah, at least some of it, sure.

GLENN: Not all of it. You still have the basic fundamentals of where you were.

But you would have said -- if I would have told you, Stu, you're going to

believe these things in two years, this and this and this, pick them whatever

they are, you would have said never, I'll never go down that road.

STU: Far more things are possible than I would have admitted to two years ago.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
