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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
