GLENN: Today I'm going to outline for you the idea that I outlined on

television last night. Somebody has to pick this up. It's not going to be me.

But somebody has to pick this up. Somebody needs to go because I'm telling you,

the government will have no place to go. They will have to do these things.

There is no reason why our congressmen and all these people in Washington make

$175,000 a year as their starting wage. There's no reason for it. "Oh, but they

have to have two homes." Really? Well, have them go live in the barracks. We'll

put them up at Andrews. Why not? "Oh, well, they have all these pensions." Why

do they have the pensions? They can get all their healthcare at the V.A. medical

centers from hereon out. Congratulations from that. You get exactly what our

soldiers do. Our armies, our soldiers in the Army, they make about $22,000 a

year. And if any of these clowns in Washington want a free education, I'll

consider it. They need one. But they shouldn't get any better benefits than our

military does. And why are they making $175,000 a year? Are they taking a bullet

to the face? Are they risking having their limbs blown off? I don't think so.

Are they in worse combat than our soldiers? Nope. Congress should never make

more than $22,000 a year. That's what our soldiers make; that's what they make.

Wherever our soldiers go get their medical care, that's exactly where they get

medical care. As far as federal employees go, that's exactly what go to the V.A.

hospital. Congratulations on that. Oh, you love the V.A. hospital so much? Do

you? Really? Yeah, it's the best, isn't it? Yeah. You go ahead. Federal

employees? You now get all of your treatment at the V.A. Medical Center.

Anything the soldiers get you can get. Congratulations on that.

How come the average worker in America makes $50,000 a year and the average

federal worker makes $75,000 a year? The average federal worker makes, I think

it's $110,000 with all of the benefits. No. No. The average federal employee

should never make more than the average American, ever. Period. All your

benefits, you get them from the V.A., period. Congratulations on that. Oh, you

don't like that? Washington, you don't like that? Here, I'm going to fix

security for ya. I'm going to fix security. This is in Broke. Read about this

one. Push it. Push it because they'll have no place to go. Who in Washington, if

this was a movement, who in Washington could say "No, I'm not cutting my

$175,000 salary down to what our military makes." They couldn't. They couldn't

say no. Ya got em. Get em! Who could say no to the federal employees making the

same as the average worker?

Look, the average worker, their salary starts to go up? Congratulations.

Everybody's salary can go up. Until that time, no. Who can say no to that? Do

you know that jobs over $150,000 have doubled, have doubled since Obama became

president? Why? Has the private sector? Has that happened with the private

sector? Somebody needs to pick that up.

Now, I'm going to help you with security because they'll say, well, that's too

expensive; we can't keep two homes, we can't fly back and forth, we can't no,

we'll fly you on a military transport plane. That's not a problem. You can fly

exactly like our military does. When our military family has to go back and

forth, don't worry about it. You can just catch the next military transport

plane. Now, you may have to make four connections but you'll get home. Don't

worry about it. Congratulations on that. Oh, you don't like it? Well, then maybe

you shouldn't be in session so much. Maybe you should be like our founders had

you. You're only in session for a few days every year. Maybe you do it like

Texas does. You're only in session every other year. Congratulations. You like

it now?

You know what I'm really concerned about. I'm concerned about security in

Washington. I mean, look. Think about this. We have a plane, God forbid we have

some nut job from the Middle East take a plane and run it into the capitol while

everybody is in session. What happens? We wipe out everybody in congress? That's

a nightmare. For security reasons they should all stay in their districts. For

security reasons they should all remain at local offices, close to the people.

That way continuity of government. You can't wipe everybody else out. What? They

can't get on the Internet and talk to each other? They can't pick up the phone

and do all that business? Oh, you know what would be really tough is you'd break

up J Street. No. You'd break up K street. No. Would that be bad? Oh, gee, all

those big huge lobbying firms. What they would have to do is they would have to

spend all of their money going from city to city, state to state trying to lobby

people and those people would still be at home with their families. They would

still be in their communities. Wouldn't that suck? But I'm just doing it for

security reasons. I'm just worried about their security. I just think for

continuity of government they should stay home. And it would also save us an

awful lot of money. And it would be a lot easier for them to do their job at

$22,000 a year instead of $175,000 a year, and they'll know where their local

V.A. center is.

America, pick it up! Do it. Demand it. They have no place to go. They have no

place to go. Pick up their salaries and make the argument. Pick it up. Who could

possibly argue that and win?

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
