I am not Glenn Beck I am a dad just asking questions.
Turning over every stone trying to figure out what is true and what is not I'd -- like some help on this one.
-- sure like some responses from those in Washington but.
They don't respond to these questions which should tell you an awful lot shouldn't it.
What you find the answer.
No matter what it is.
You need to stand up and then speak without fear for the truth shall set you free.
-- come to you tonight on the eighth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan.
Are we doing everything we can to fight that and we him.
And have to make your own decisions -- that.
But there is another war that's taking place now.
And the same politicians that have not to use the full force of the United States to fight the real wars had used their full force.
On this 10 they don't have to have town hall meetings are take polls for this war they know how to fight this one.
And they know if they do.
Mobile will continue to collect them.
This is a war.
On the US dollar.
A hidden war.
Only because the media isn't doing their job.
And the only ones to be left in the wreckage of the battlefield are you and your children and their future.
For some reason no one in the media will tell you this and I think it's because they just think you're too stupid to understand it.
Is this week too complicated to explain maybe somebody could get somebody to put on a white jacket and pretend -- and doctor split.
-- tell you something.
You're not too stupid.
And it's not that complicated to explain.
We on this program have never -- down to you legal everybody claims that -- all dummies here.
I challenged the other shows on the actual networks that people are supposedly watching.
To have a conversation and don't -- there viewers with.
How long ago did I ask you to read up on -- by -- republic.
Well the battle is beginning to rage here in America in the last 24 hours since we last met I have a list the things that our government has done to.
The American dollar boy this is a war they are.
They are fighting -- everything they've got.
First of all House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's got a new tax idea oh yeah new tax on the table -- Yahoo!.
There are -- fast she's talking to Charlie Rose.
Part of -- Charlie Rose about the V8 PNBAT taxes.
Manufactures -- each stage of production get a tax based on how much each producer adds to a product.
If not love that I just -- -- big -- all of the value that taxes add some life.
Speaker Pelosi emphasized of course.
That all of the reworking of the tax code would not result in an increase.
In taxes on middle class Americans of course not -- it would she lie.
Next we turn to the Wall Street Journal remember things that have happened in the last 24 hours.
Has granted at 272.
Million dollar in stimulus funds roughly 25%.
Of the one point one billion dollars provided to the FAA.
For airport work.
That fall below the agency's own threshold.
So we're getting crappy improvements for our money it's the new American way.
According to the journal the FAA steers money to projects that get 841.
On a scale from one to a hundred.
For those who didn't have their papers corrected with a red ink that's bad.
On the stimulus they raise their threshold the 62 but I'll tell you it's art.
You can see that tens of millions of dollars in stimulus going to airports that's gold scored thirteen -- -- here Opel with Judith -- -- you -- Yeah that's in three -- in Michigan right there and I want to balance rarely really special it's Florida 38.
In the FAA's rating system.
And that got -- Eleven million dollars.
Then next story.
Thousands of people lined up in Detroit to love this.
They were lined up yesterday because they falsely we're thinking that they were registering for 3000.
Dollars in stimulus money from the Obama administration.
Officials say the city was granted fifteen million dollars to help residents pay their bills and -- rent or to pay for temporary homes for the homeless.
Are there no.
-- -- -- -- No empty houses in Detroit -- that's weird by the way cause problem this wasn't covered by unions -- special interest or government.
Open they had nothing to do with the problems in Detroit.
Next story representative Steve Israel he's from New York he held a town hall meeting where the fire Marshal had to shut the doors because so many people wanted to attend.
-- we are turning into a banana republic.
-- this is America.
Do you stop several times by people chanting stop.
Printing the money.
Israel said the federal government would administer a public option health plan just like Medicare or Medicaid or my gosh that sounds good.
And he said quote the days of insurance companies dropping you because you're sick are over.
Really is that true could show another charge here you're gonna love this because look at think.
Look ready -- insurance companies here.
-- -- lot -- talk -- all.
Who has denied 475000.
People because they were sick.
This is a gift to special interest pharmaceutical companies labor unions who are orchestrating all the things that you see in Washington what is that.
What is the group that has so many union members -- -- and see -- you I'm sorry I digress.
Back to the last 24 hours here.
The Obama administration has announced 35 million dollar construction project in New Hampshire this -- is great you know you know -- I love you.
This -- requires union representation.
And makes nonunion workers -- -- and contribute to a union pension fund.
You are -- and that great by the way just eight point 7% of construction workers are unionized.
So it helps everybody.
I guess coming soon the -- act.
Where every baby born gets 500 dollars from the US government according to US news and world report.
You know low income children are gonna get more money then.
Well -- they don't need those rich babies don't need it all and before I go.
The yet CBO has just given their estimate for health care cost.
The estimate includes a projected net cost of 518.
Over the next ten years.
Expansion you know for the insurance coverage that net cost itself reflected too gross total of 829.
Billion in credits and subsidies.
You know provided through exchanges.
Increase net outlays for Medicaid and the children's health insurance -- -- you know chip and tax credits and let me ask you some.
-- -- -- But -- this.
Incompetence this is 24 hours point four.
Is -- incompetence.
Is -- a series.
Errors so epic in scale that Cecil B.
DeMille and -- -- his -- couldn't fill it to make it believable.
If something smells wrong here.
Is it something else entirely that someone has another plan.
I have seen incompetence my entire life in fact I spent a lot of my life being completely incompetent.
I've spent since September 11 2001.
Trying to educate myself.
And look into the government and what's going on so after you know eight years.
I know incompetence.
Is this in confidence or has it been orchestrated.
To look that way.
Oh boy here we go -- the crazy hole again but give me a better answer.
How can you have this list from the last 24 hours and then tell anyone with a straight face that we're doing OK -- I don't -- about it meanwhile.
The dollar is falling.
Any little anyone with a little financial understanding we'll explain to you that there comes a time.
When there is no way I -- it's called the death spiral.
There's good debt.
If you like but what do you feel like glued to the good good good.
-- good debt and bad to -- The truck driver goes -- and he goes and buys a house that he can afford the debt.
A truck driver goes out and -- the house that he can't afford it's a -- million dollar house and -- takes anywhere act's up you know.
Dollars in credit card debt -- and he decided also he wants all the football team so he decides.
I -- -- -- Rush Limbaugh and Dave Checketts I'm -- buy the St.
-- -- sounds like bad debt sure.
He might not always be a truck driver he could become a brain surgeon next week can be one of the best brain surgeons ever highest big brain surgeon.
But he still could not pay off the debt he couldn't afford the rams.
We can't afford what we.
We have been promised so much we have demanded.
-- much we've racked up so much debt.
That even if we go back to the good times -- I take that back.
Even if every single one of us become brain surgeons we can't pay this debt -- off.
We're not going to all become brain surgeons.
Iran plans anywhere that I have seen to do the next great thing in -- -- although that's seen the is lying within the American people some place but the government is hampering the people who would lead to that next great innovation that would -- -- formats.
And we are the truck driver.
And our boss is destroying our business.
We are about to lose our job and what start working part time at a convenience store we can't afford the debt.
We start working part time -- convenience store now how much confidence does the bank have in that truck driver or in our case how much confidence does China have a -- They don't they don't now all the rest of the world as saying get out of the dollar.
Remember to China and the rest of the world they see us as our politicians.
Would you believe -- -- do you think we could turn it around if you could see our politicians and I don't mean just stood the Democrats I mean all of whom.
Would you have confidence.
In Howard dollar.
See that's the other thing they look at us as the dollar our dollar is a stock certificate to them just like stock in -- company.
If those shareholders in China and and Russia and everywhere else believed that the company cannot turn itself around.
Then people will stop investing in that.
They stopped buying the share is we need them to buy the shares.
So we can finance our debt.
Once they lose confidence out in us the shares become invalid.
Of of no value.
And even the best company then with the best people in the best ideas cannot turn itself around.
And -- where you gang there is no sugar daddy come in with a bailout for this company.
There is no bankruptcy court for America the creditors come and take the things we promised.
We give them.
If we went into default.
The hidden war.
Why aren't any of the politicians telling you any of this.
Well I contend because.
Some of them don't get it.
Some of them are cowards.
And some of them have a fundamental misunderstanding about you the American people.
You are not stupid.
You are not a coward.
You can figure things out help the.
These this country is populated with people that change the world.
I remember reading about.
And it's and saying hey I'm getting a lot of -- -- -- is somebody from the government came and helped -- -- They didn't.
We are brave people that have faced.
-- is some comfortable Lodz and we come out the other side better every time.
When the going gets tough Americans -- -- I think it's time for Washington to tell us the truth.
To trust us with our own future.
Let me ask you this question on this question who cares more about your future.
If you think I care about your children I do in the bland as sort of way in the collective sort of way.
But I care about my children.
You are caring about your children together.
We care about all of the children.
Do you think that -- had I think they just care of other jobs.
They think you will not make the sacrifices required they think that you are -- -- freak out and you just can't cope with bad news in troubled times -- I don't believe that.
My gosh how many times -- this country had trouble -- -- a civil war come to mind.
World War I world war to.
We fought and won against the biggest nation in the world.
As wagon farmer -- in the Arab American revolution.
We defeated slavery by fighting each other and then.
We helped rebuild ourselves.
We defeated nazism fascism communism.
You're -- that country can't pull itself up by the bootstraps and win this of course we can't.
We need honest broker is telling us the honest -- The only evidence that Washington has that we are stupid.
Lazy can't make it without Washington.
The only evidence they have.
Is that we keep collecting them and then we keep taking their money and then we don't hold them accountable.
-- -- -- Couple questions for -- for you.
Is that we are.
-- -- ready to make a change.
Next question is for the people in Washington.
And they fall into two camps first camp is made up of the people who don't get it or they're afraid to speak out they don't they feel alone.
Where they're just greedy.
And it is going along as they want to win elections.
To those people let me ask you this have you read history.
Have you read the history of the -- our republic if not pick up a bulk.
-- might want to read it it doesn't work you cannot do this.
In fact let me recommend a book the lords of finance.
Now second question is for the second group of people in Washington.
And these are people that a year ago I didn't really think existed.
I really didn't.
These are people that actually.
Hate our system of government they actually want to change the republic.
They want to change our system of government they are radicals and revolutionaries.
And they are real.
Just few minutes bottom of the hour and introduce you to some.
Let me ask those people.
Because I know you're watching.
Have you read the history of the United States of America lately.
Because those who believe as Van Jones does.
You should read the history of the American people because no matter how destitute we become.
No matter how hard you come down -- no matter how much you try to intimidate us you will never ever win.
Unlike the way you want -- -- fight in Afghanistan.
Real Americans stand by the truth.
Fight to the last man to win.
We -- -- crazy times but how crazy -- thank god not this crazy.
At a story that involves a prison a mysterious black Mercedes and the private security company.
The truth behind the Montana -- Next.
