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.

UPDATE: Here's how the conversation went on radio. Watch the video below.

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.

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
