Stimulating China

GLENN: Let me just explain the spending bill. I know you understand it but let me just break it down so you can explain it to your dope friends. And when I say dope, I know we've got a lot of rappers that listen to the program. I don't mean that in a good way. The spending package, some will say that this is just an advance on your income taxes next year. Okay. I suppose you could look at it that way. You could say, they're just going to raise my taxes next year. So they're just giving me in advance. Well, I wish it were that happy.


 


 Here's what it really is. We don't have $150 billion. It's not like George is like, well, let me just get this out of the drawer, I've got $150 billion in this drawer." He doesn't have $150 billion. Nancy Pelosi doesn't have $150 billion. Even the Kennedys don't have $150 billion. Nobody has $150 billion. Nobody's cutting $150 billion from our spending programs. If they did cut $150 billion, it's not like they're like, "Well, that's good because I happen to have this stack of $150 billion right here now and we were going to spend it over here on this road but now we're going to give it back to the American people." We didn't have it for the road! We were borrowing it from China! So if we were going to cut something for $150 billion, we would say, "Hey, China, we don't need that $150 billion for the road, we're going to borrow that and you're going to jack up the interest rates, we're going to put ourselves -- here, just slap some handcuffs on us, will you?" That's -- if they cut, that's what they would say. "Well, we're not going to borrow that money. Oh, by the way, we've got to stimulate our economy, so we do need to borrow that $150 billion." But they are not even saying that. They are saying, "Yeah, we need that $150 billion we were going to borrow from you before, yeah, we need to make that $300 billion because we need another $150 billion." So we take another $150 billion and we borrow it from China. They're over there with the abacus right now. "Oh, this is fun. Oh, yes. How much more?" And we borrow another $150 billion and then we pay the new 41 stamp and put it in the mail! It just went up to 42? Groovy again, U.S. Government. Cost us an extra penny to send this borrowed money to you!


 


 So we pop it into the mail and then what happens? And then you take it and you go out and you buy goods made in China. (Applause). This is fantastic. This is the best, this is the best stimulus package I've -- can I tell you something? It will definitely stimulate the economy. Not ours but China. It will be fantastic. I mean, imagine that. Look how insidious that is. Can you imagine if I were a Bill's Store and Bank and I said, "Whew, we're having problems with the economy. John, I tell you what we need to do. Just to help you out, I'm going to loan you $1,000, okay? You're going to have to pay 8% interest on that but I'm going to loan you -- because this will be for your own good. I'm going to loan you $1,000 at 8% interest and then you go ahead and spend that. Oh, by the way, I'll cash that check for you if you want. You can spend it right here in my store and buy stuff that I'm selling." The Chinese win in three ways. They continue to enslave us in debt; they got their interest rate. Congratulations. They're making money; and they're putting their own people to work making the crap that we buy. Who's the winner here? Oh, I'm so excited for that paycheck -- oh, I'm not going to get one. That's right. I'm too rich. I'm too rich. I've got -- I don't even need a tax decrease. Why would I need a tax decrease? I'm just running a small business that just got an insurance increase of 48%! Yeah, don't worry. Don't worry. I'm sure all those people that run small businesses, they don't need a tax decrease, either, uh-uh, no.


 


 I wish there were a candidate that would suggest that we, like, do some sort of, I don't know, government-sponsored environmental youth army. You think I'm joking, don't you? Yeah, yeah. An environmental youth army paid for by you. That will stimulate the economy. China again, we'll have to borrow that money but then we'll give all that money to teenagers and they spend that money at the mall like crazy. It will be great for China. We'll give you all the details on that coming up in just a second.


 


 And by the way, I just, I wanted that one caveat that John McCain will lose the election unless -- I mean, something crazy has to happen like, you know, Pakistan has to have, like, you know, a whole nuclear staff go missing and kidnapped by, you know, Al-Qaeda members. Well, wait a minute. That just happened. Oh, crap. Maybe we should pay attention to that. No, you know what? I tell you what, that new Jamie Lynn Spears show is back on and so let's watch the pregnant 16-year-old on the Disney channel. Things make sense.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
