Big Money with Steve Cordasco


WPHT - Philadelphia

GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. Friend of the program and host of Big Money, WPHT, Steve Cordasco. Steve, I want to talk to you about the bond market, what's happening here in the bond market today but please, you've got to -- we can't be CNBC because I don't even -- I mean, I barely understand the bond market as it is and most people just don't understand. So let's just talk about it as the indicator of what is really happening on Wall Street because the Dow is not telling us the truth.

CORDASCO: The Dow, Glenn, is not telling us the truth. A lot of the talking heads on some of the stations you mentioned again I don't think it right. What investors need to do and what smart investors do is they follow the money and to put it in simple terms, money is pouring into treasury bonds. Specifically if you look at the 30-year treasury bond, it has hit the lowest interest rate that we have seen in most of our life times.

GLENN: Okay, wait. Hang on just a second. Hold on, hold on, hold on. It's my understanding that this is the lowest since treasury bonds, 1976, this is the lowest they've ever been.

CORDASCO: Correct. Now, we're talking the interest rate, not the value of the bond. You've got to remember the value of the bond is going up because so many people are buying the bond, which is driving the interest rate down. To put it into perspective, right now the 30-year treasury bond will pay you 4.15%. Let that sink in. You're going to lock your money up for 30 years to get 4.15% per year.

GLENN: The only reason -- and every investor will always tell you, you want to make your money safe? The safest thing you can do is buy treasury bonds, and you don't usually buy treasury bonds because you're locking your money up for so long and the interest rate is not nearly that low but it is pretty low. But it is the safest thing you could do. So Steve, help draw the connection between -- I mean, like me, for instance, I thought about, you know, should I pay off my car or should I take that money and invest it some place? In the last few years you haven't paid off something because the interest rate has been so low, you could take that money and you could make 6%, 8%, 10% some place else and so you can actually make money instead of paying off that debt.

CORDASCO: Glenn, that's the theory. The problem is nobody -- it's not the reality. Nobody is doing that. Bottom line, we are a debted-up nation. This was talked about in 1992. This is a major, major setup for a catastrophe and what's happening in the market, the message being sent right now by what's happening in the bond market, what's happening in the stock market, we need to read the message. The message is this: Main Street, everyday households, our balance sheets are a disgrace. It's a catastrophe. There's too much debt. Corporate America's balance sheets are great. They've had cheat money. They've been able to expand and grow and do what they do. The bottom line, though, is the average everyday American citizen's Balance Sheet is in shambles because we're debted up as a nation and the Fed has to keep it going because we're consumers, buying stuff from overseas, getting other countries rich who are now buying Wall Street, Glenn. Citigroup and Merrill Lynch, our largest financial institutions being bought by communist countries and Middle Eastern governments.

GLENN: Okay. So what does the bond number tell you? With this kind of money pouring in to make it the lowest the treasury bond yield has ever been, what does that tell you is around the corner for America?

VOICE: People are running for cover. They are willing to buy treasuries at the lowest rates in history according to the modern recordkeeping system. It is telling you that what the Fed is doing and trying to do will not work. They are out of solutions and it's come time that we need to pay a price, and what the smart money is telling us, by sending this message, is that we better be on the lookout for another shoe to drop which, again, could send us into that deep recession that you've been talking about so well over the last couple of months.

GLENN: Steve, we're going to have you on TV tonight and we'll talk a little bit more about this and stay in touch, all right?

CORDASCO: Hey, Glenn, no problem. Whatever you need. Like they say in my world, stock markets for show and bonds are for dough and right now the bond market's sending a strong message to America.

GLENN: All right. Thanks a lot, Steve Cordasco. Remember, bonds are where you put your money if you want the safest shelter. I have not said that they were the safest shelter because I don't believe that the Federal government is in good enough shape over the long term. I don't know what it's going to look like in 30 years quite honestly but every person will tell you, oh, you think something really bad is coming? Buy treasury bonds. Buy bonds, treasury bonds, buy them. That's the safest place you can put your money. With the interest rate this low, you are asking for a lot of people to say, I don't think I can make more money than 4% interest coming. That's hard to believe. That is really, truly hard to believe that a lot of people will say, I don't think I -- I'm going to bet that I can't make more than 4% interest. That's staggering. We'll keep an eye on it so you don't have to.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
