Glenn Beck Program, October 27, 2010

It has been reported that NV voting machines have a flaw.  Harry Reid’s name is pre-checked.  When you call a technician to fix the “glitch” who shows up is a member of the SEIU.

But fundamentally you have to trust the vote.

It’s important to vote in this election.  Vote for candidates with honor and integrity.

America is at a crossroad.

3.3 million jobs have been lost since Obama took office and the country is now at 96% unemployment.  In 2003, during Bush’s term 3.0 million jobs were lost.  At that time Nancy Pelosi called Bush the worst President ever because of that.

Government does not create jobs.

At, they had an article on the deindustralization of America.
  • 48,400 factories closed since 2001 – 75% of those factories employed at least 500 people.
  • 12 billion cell phones have been sold.  Zero were made in the USA.
  • Job losses of 500,000 due to the trade deficit this year alone.
  • 70% of GDP is consumer spending.  Of that 50% is service related.
  • The U.S. lost 1/3 of it’s manufacturing jobs since 2000.
  • For every $1 China spends in the U.S., we spend $3.90 in China.
  • By 2040, China’s economy will be three times larger than ours.
  • At the end of 2009, less than 12 million jobs in the U.S. were making something.  The last time less than 12 million jobs in manufacturing was 1941.

Businesses are not investing in new ideas because they are uncertain of the future.  Glenn showed a clip of President Obama encouraging Latinos to “punish their enemies”.  What other President has talked like that?

Green Jobs – Spain went big for green jobs.  They experienced a loss of 2 regular jobs for each green job created.  They now have a 20.5% unemployment rate.

China now controls 95% of all rare minerals.  These are used in key components in the green economy.

The people at Chevy Volt now admit that the on board gas engine powers the car at highway speeds.

There are two competing visions for the country (1) Government is the only answer or, (2) The free market is the solution.

George Soros put a $1 million bounty on the heads of those commentators at Fox.  Glenn noted that he spends four hours a day, 5 days per week on the air basically ad-libbing.  That amounts to about 6 million words over four years.  He also does public speaking and personal appearances.

Media Matters has spent those four years looking to find something to “hang him” with.  He wonders how he has survived all those years with all those people examining him.

It has been reported that President Obama uses teleprompters in meetings as small as 6 people.  Glenn feels that the teleprompter is used to keep his real feelings from coming out at an inopportune time.

The 99’ers.  These are people that have gone past their 99 weeks of unemployment.  They have now formed a union.  They are advocating for an additional 20 weeks of assistance.

Glenn showed an unemployment chart starting in 2007 with 200,000 people being unemployed more than 99 weeks.  By 2010, that figure has grown to 1.4 million.  At the current pace, it will take until 2021 to hire all these people back.  Unions and politicians will try to use these people.

We need to help these people.  If you can, hire someone, do it.

Ford Motors announced the closure of their Dearborn plant.   It is not clear where those 750 jobs will go.  The company says that the Dearborn plant no longer fits with their global manufacturing plans.

His book “Broke” proposes solutions for our broken country.  He spent a year questioning various experts for their recommendations.
