Glenn's performing in Glenn Beck Live (aka "Elegant Eliminations") tonight in Chicago, IL. He had some down time yesterday and decided to take a tour of the city (no word if Rahm Emmanuel or Barack Obama are planning to show up to the show).

'This is INTENTIONAL': Financial expert says Democrats are ruining economy 'on purpose’ — here's why
Former investment banker Carol Roth joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to answer his latest questions regarding the economy: Are we in a recession, despite what the White House claims? At what point do the Fed’s interest rate hikes become dangerous? And how are we expected to bring down inflation when interest rates continue to climb?
No matter what the White House says, the economy is not healthy, and spending billions of dollars on the "Inflation Reduction Act" won't fix inflation. The reality is that the Fed's tools can't fix the supply and demand imbalance "unless the Fed can stop printing money and start printing oil and printing food," Carol quipped. "But they're really focused on the demand side, not the supply side. What we need to be focused on is how do we get more supply in these key areas so that we balance out that from the supply side, not the demand side," she explained.
\u201c-There will be no inflation \n-Inflation is transitory \n-Inflation is good for you\n-Inflation only hurts the rich\n-Inflation is consumers\u2019 fault\n-Inflation is greedy biz\u2019s fault\n-Inflation is Putin\u2019s fault\n-Recessions mean something else!\n-Breadlines are a great way to meet people\u201d— Carol Roth (@Carol Roth) 1659019694
Carol emphasized that the "Inflation Reduction Act of 2022," which is now backed by West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, will only make things worse —and the Democrats know it.
"[Senate Majority Leader] Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) came out and said it, [the Inflation Reduction Act] is Green New Deal Light. This is about spending more money on their climate hoax instead of fighting inflation. He put it out there, it's in a tweet ... they're saying the quiet part out loud. They don't care; this is what they're trying to do," she added.

"I'm calling it 'the Great Reset-sion,'" Carol said. "This is intentional. They are doing this to us on purpose."

Elon Musk easily TRIGGERS Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales with 5-word tweet amid recession definition feud
After the U.S. posted two straight quarters of negative GDP growth, the Biden administration conveniently decided to change the conventional (though not "technical," according to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen) definition of "recession." Recent changes to the “recession” page on Wikipedia now have people wondering if the online encyclopedia has conveniently changed the conventional definition of "objective."
After a revision war erupted on Wikipedia's “recession” page, administrators locked the page from any further edits. Some people on Twitter seemed to find the newly un-editable version suspiciously favorable to Democrats.
\u201cWikipedia has changed the definition of recession.\n\nWayback's last capture was July 11, 2022. \n\nBased on Wiki's changelog, the line: "There is no global consensus on the definition of a recession" was added on July 27. \n\nThe page is now locked.\u201d— unusual_whales (@unusual_whales) 1659050280
\u201c#Wikipedia comes to the Democrats' rescue again. Changes definition of #Recession. Wayback's last capture was July 11, 2022. Based on Wiki's changelog, the line: "There is no global consensus on the definition of a recession" was added on July 27. And they 'sem-locked' the page.\u201d— Climate Dispatch (@Climate Dispatch) 1659015287
\u201c@unusual_whales Correct! Specifically, the most important change, memory-holing the oft-used "two quarters" rubric was made on the very day that the first 1Q GDP decline estimate was released. Huh. \n\nhttps://t.co/p0Cxpidapa\u201d— unusual_whales (@unusual_whales) 1659050280

That's when Elon Musk jumped into the fray. "Wikipedia is losing its objectivity," Musk tweeted and tagged Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.
\u201c@micsolana Wikipedia is losing its objectivity @jimmy_wales\u201d— Mike Solana (@Mike Solana) 1659046490
Wales responded by inviting Musk to call him for a "real discussion," but only after saying "Reading too much Twitter nonsense is making you stupid."
\u201c@elonmusk @micsolana Elon kindly take a moment to read this: https://t.co/8MydQ8SNyW\n\nReading too much Twitter nonsense is making you stupid. Call me next week if you want a real discussion. @elonmusk\u201d— Mike Solana (@Mike Solana) 1659046490
\u201c@jimmy_wales @elonmusk @micsolana How classy. @elonmusk points out the obvious, @jimmy_wales replies with an insult \ud83d\ude44\u201d— Mike Solana (@Mike Solana) 1659046490
\u201c@jimmy_wales @elonmusk @micsolana Your cofounder has also criticized Wikipedia\u2019s bias.

It's amazing to see just how strongly many LGBT+ Americans are allied with Palestine in the Israel-Palestine conflict because the Palestinians aren't exactly pro-LGBTQ.
Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz decided to go into the West Bank to ask people on the streets of the Palestinian territories to explain their views firsthand. What he discovered was a shocking and even violent intolerance for the LGBT+ community.
Ami joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to share a sample of his eye-opening footage and the stunning reactions he received from pro-Palestinian (and vehemently anti-Isreal) LGBT+ Americans.

On direct orders from President Joe Biden, the Department of Homeland Security has released 79,652 migrants into the United States in just the last month after they were detained for illegally crossing the southern border. This brings the total number of illegals that have been caught and released into the United States on Biden's watch to 1.335 million people.
"At this pace, the ones that we catch and release — not the ones that we didn't catch — [will total] 3.5 million illegal immigrants in the United States in [Biden's] first term," said Glenn Beck on the radio program.
Biden’s border crisis is getting EVEN WORSE | #shortsyoutu.be
Perhaps these shocking statistics had something to do with the Biden administration's quiet approval of a
plan to complete a portion of former President Donald Trump's border wall in southern Arizona.
On Thursday, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the completion of the U.S.- Mexico border wall in Arizona’s "Yuma Sector," despite Biden's oft-repeated promise that "not another foot" of Trump's wall would be constructed while he is president.
A Department of Homeland Security announcement cited "immediate life and safety risks" for migrants attempting to cross into the United States illegally as well as the first responders and agents working in the area "where there is a risk of drownings and injuries from falls."
Interestingly, mainstream media outlets seem to have suddenly seen the light when it comes to the actual function of a wall. Yes, walls provide security and help keep people safe. Biden's border walls "will better protect migrants who can get hurt slipping down a slope or drown walking through a low section of the Colorado River," according to NBC News.
But people on social media noticed more than a slight discrepancy in the way news about the border wall was framed under President Trump.
In 2020, NBC News said "President Trump's border wall endangered ecosystems and sacred sites." But on Friday, they said closing the gaps in the wall "won’t be much of a deterrent," according to Arizona environmentalist Myles Traphagen who has been "mapping ecological damage left by border wall construction" under former President Trump.
"Biden had pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction, but the administration later agreed to some barriers, citing safety," AP News reported.
\u201cLmao, did you know your vote for Biden was vote to finish building the wall too? \n\nUS to fill border wall gaps at open area near Yuma, Arizona | AP News https://t.co/JNzbDfFmJn\u201d— Justin (@Justin) 1659103724
"In addition to posing 'safety and life hazard risks for migrants,' the [D]epartment [of Homeland Security] said the gaps in the wall presented 'life and safety' risks to first responders in the area," reported CNN.
\u201c@CNN The way she\u2019s twisting herself into knots here is just sad. \n\nhttps://t.co/XoJ7r0WiiE\u201d— CNN (@CNN) 1659123066
"Completion of the wall was at the top of former President Donald Trump’s agenda, and border security remains a potent issue for candidates of both parties going into this year’s primary elections. President Joe Biden halted new wall construction after he took office, but he has since made closing the gaps just south of Yuma a priority," said NBC News.
\u201cA couple of bold governors, like @GregAbbott_TX, gave liberal cities just a small taste of what the out of control border crisis feels like for us border states and months later, @JoeBiden started building the wall.\n\nJust amazing.\n\nhttps://t.co/HNUgAQrHkd\u201d— Jason Howerton (@Jason Howerton) 1659103903
\u201cThe Biden Administration just quietly approved construction of a border wall near Yuma, AZ.\n\nRemember when Biden attacked Trump over the wall?\n\nWalls work!\u201d— Ryan Fournier (@Ryan Fournier) 1659106984
\u201cSo the Biden Admin has decided to finish the Trump border wall in Arizona\u2026even after they said walls are racist and walls don\u2019t work. \ud83e\udd23\u201d— Hodgetwins (@Hodgetwins) 1659094508
