California is looking a lot like Venezuela in THIS way

Venezuela and California have a whole lot in common these days. The governments in both Caracas and Sacramento are inadvertently forcing people out of their state and country in catastrophic droves. It shows the painful truth of what American Progressives and hard core Socialists have in common. They're job killers — and ultimately — they destroy countries.

From January to May, over 400,000 people have fled Venezuela. 1.8 million have left over the past 24 months. NGOs in neighboring countries report the numbers coming out of Venezuela are increasing at insane numbers. Since the beginning of the year, they report over 4,600 new arrivals... a day. That makes around 700,000 this year, and we're barely half way through 2018.

Entire industries are packing up and leaving the country. This year alone, 48,000 teachers have called it quits and moved to neighboring countries. But it's not just teachers. Venezuela is currently seeing a massive shortage in doctors, electricians, bus drivers, engineers and oil workers. Residents are fleeing, and industry is dying.

Think about that. People escaping and industry dying. Would you ever expect to hear that phrase used to describe what's happening in an American state? The similarities between the Socialist nation of Venezuela and the progressive blue state of California are striking.

At over 140,000, California has the second largest amount of residents fleeing the state annually. They're right behind New York- their progressive blue sister state. Taxes and the cost of homes are sending people to places like Texas and Nevada. But - like Venezuela - the scariest sign for California might just be what's happening to business.

People are fleeing, jobs are leaving, and business is dying. Progressives and Socialists… destroying lives and countries one government at a time.

In the past 12 to 24 months listen to this list of companies that decided the ridiculously high taxes and massive over regulation were too much to stomach and decided to move elsewhere: Carl's Jr moved to Nashville. Toyota to Texas. Jacobs Engineering Group to Texas. Nissan North America, like Carl's Jr, went to Nashville. Jamba Juice, Occidental Petroleum, Omnitracs Software, Chevron, Waste Connections- all picked up shop and moved to Texas.

This list is actually longer, and it'll grow even more in the next 6 to 12 months. Over two dozen companies have announced they're looking into leaving California. Some experts speculate that nearly 10,000 companies have left the state since 2008.

People are fleeing, jobs are leaving, and business is dying. Progressives and Socialists… destroying lives and countries one government at a time.

Fleeing businesses lump California into same category as Venezuela

The similarities between the Socialist nation of Venezuela and the progressive blue state of California are striking.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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."
