President Obama came into office claiming he would be Mr. Diplomat, talking everyone and anyone into submission in order to avoid war. He said he’d talk even with the worst of the worst – like Iran and North Korea. So why all of a sudden is the United States running war drills with B-52 bombers near North Korea? Glenn reacts on radio today.

When they first toyed with the idea that they would confiscate funds from private accounts, the EU and Cyprus said they’d only take 6 to 9.9% of the funds. Then it was only accounts that had over 100,000 euros in it. Then when it was passed the percentage suddenly went up to 20%-30% and now 80% is being floated out there as an idea. How is no one in the streets over this?

Russia Today reported:

Cyprus Popular Bank’s richest clients with uninsured deposits over €100,000 could get only 20% of their money, as the government eyes to wind down its operations, says Finance Minister Michalis Sarris.

“Realistically, very little will be returned,” Sarris said in a televised interview with state broadcaster CyBC, adding that it could also take years before those depositors see any of their money back.

“Certainly, for depositors above 100,000 euros it could be a very significant blow,” Sarris concluded.

You may have seen Jim Carrey’s idiotic anti-gun video he posted on the ‘Funny or Die’ website. The clearly ‘or die’ video was so bad and dragged on for nearly 6 excruciating minutes. Reason Magazine always produces great content – but who knew they could do epic response music videos?

It’s hard to understand what goes on in the offices of the executives at CNN. For every good decision (i.e. hiring Jake Tapper), they appear to make two horrible ones — a Kathy Griffin/Anderson Cooper TV program…seriously CNN? And they just can’t seem to figure out that 99.9% of the country would rather watch paint dry than watch Piers Morgan talk about guns.

While it may be one of the worst hours in cable “news” programming on television, Piers Morgan’s show does produce great highlights thanks to his limited self-awareness. See, if Piers understood how humiliated and defeated he looks every time he invites someone like Ted Nugent or Dana Loesch on his show to talk about gun regulation and the Second Amendment, he’d probably never appear on TV again.

Last night was one of those shows for Piers. He invited radio host Dana Loesch on to debate gun regulation with Van Jones and Grover Norquist. Norquist hardly had to say a word once Dana got started — Van Jones’s rhetoric and Piers Morgans empty talking-point arguments were no match for the plain and simple facts Dana was throwing their way.

During the exchange, while arguing for limited magazine capacity, Piers Morgan equated 1 bullet with 1 life. stating that limiting magazine capacity from a hypothetical 30 bullets to 7 bullets would be 21 lives. He later went on to attempt to argue that he was for confiscation.

…so you can keep your guns, you just can’t have any ammo.

After listening to the clip, Stu added on to the points Dana made about the holes in the argument that restrictions would save lives by pointing out that if the goal is to regulate in order to “protect us”, Washington should be much more concerned about things like lightening, which kills 3x the amount of people/year than are killed in mass shootings.

Earlier this week GlennBeck.com had a story about what it’s like to be in a meeting with Glenn. Stu & Pat talked about it on their program this week and Glenn happened to catch the segment. Stu blamed Glenn for dragging him out of bed where he was warm and cozy with his dog Phoebe curled up at his feet to come in for the daily morning meeting, but Glenn made him wait an extra twenty minutes because he was in another meeting. Glenn didn’t like the tone of Stu’s accusations, and decided to bring the matter up on the radio show to the national audience.

Watch the original segment from Pat & Stu below:

For years, Glenn has looked at the news of the day and tried to predict what could be on the horizon. Many of these predictions have come to pass, such as his theory that the Muslim Brotherhood would rise to power in Egypt as a result of the Arab Spring. Tonight, he laid out his theory of what the new world order could look like if there were to be tremendous global upheaval.

First, he looked at James Burnham, an author who warned about the alliance that could form between communism, socialism, and fascism prior to World War II. Many dismissed his theories, but it turns out he was right. Burnham even predicted that certain global superpowers would emerge after the war, and correctly saw the rise of the United States and The Soviet Union as world powers. However, not all of his predictions came true so his ideas were dismissed.

Second, Glenn made his own predictions about what the world could look like if there was global upheaval. It’s a scary place with little room for countries that uphold freedom. Get the full breakdown in the clip below:

For the past few weeks Glenn has shifted his focus to an issue he thinks is one of the most important he’s ever covered on his program — and he’s covered a lot of big issues over the years. The progressive infiltration of the U.S. education system could change the country as you know it, and that’s just one part of what Glenn has begun to uncover. Progressives are systematically removing and replacing the free enterprise system.

Last night on TheBlaze TV, Glenn explained how and why schools are data mining, and how the government is in bed with labor and big corporations using that data.

They’re creating a system of state capitalism or “System X”

In the 1940’s a book called, “The Road We’ve Traveled,” by Stuart Chase — the man who coined the term “The New Deal” — laid out where the country was headed…where we are now. This morning on radio Glenn explained how it’s virtually impossible to find an unaltered version of this book, and that people are literally ripping out the pages and replacing them with pages from other books. Why would they do this?

“They are erasing this history because this absolutely tells the entire story of where we are.  This says, this book, the whole premise, The Road We’re Traveling, this is what we’ve designed; this is what it’s going to look like in the end,” Glenn explained.

The book, written right at the end of WWII, talks about a “Managerial Revolution” — basically, technocrats becoming more powerful that the leaders of the government.

“Who is running Europe right now?” Glenn asked. “Are they elected politicians?”

No — it’s the EU and the IMF.

“And who is the guy running Italy?  A technocrat.  He was not elected.  And nobody’s saying anything.  You have unelected technocrats running Europe and nobody’s saying anything,” Glenn said.

The writer, Stuart Chase, went on to explain:

“The “Managerial Revolution” is just the first part. “The first intelligent attempt to understand what is coming that I have seen,” he wrote. “Many more studies will be needed before the mystery is cleared up on what this exactly will look like and what we will call it.  But we are going to lay out something called X, which is displacing the system of free enterprise all over the world.  If we do not yet know what to call it, we can at least describe its major characteristics.  And here is what is replacing free enterprise.  And it says “free enterprise into X.”

A strong centralized government; an executive arm growing at the expense of the legislative and judicial arms; in some countries power is consolidated into a dictator, issuing decrees.  The control of banking, credit, and security exchanges by the government.”

Sound like what’s going on today?

Glenn continued reading:

“The underwriting of employment by the government  — either through armaments or public works.  The underwriting of Social Security by the government, old age pensions, mothers pensions, unemployment insurance and the like.  The underwriting of food, housing and medical care by the government.  The United States is already experimenting with providing these essentials.  Other nations are far down this road.  The use of deficit spending techniques to finance these under-writings.  The annually balanced budget has lost its old‑timey feel.  The abandonment of gold in favor of a managed currency.  The control of foreign trade by the government with increasing emphasis on bilateral agreements.  The control of natural resources and an increasing emphasis on self‑sufficiency.  The control of energy sources such as hydroelectric power, coal, petroleum, and natural gas.  The control of transportation, railway, highway, airway, waterway.  The control of agricultural production.  The control of labor organizations.  The enlistment of young men and young women in youth corps, devoted to health, discipline, community service, and ideologies consistent with those of the authorities.”

The only thing on Stuart’s list thats really debatable as having been achieved is “The enlistment of young men and young women in youth corps.”

“Everything else is already done,” Pat stated.

Glenn quickly reminded Pat and the audience that there already are work corps for the youth. “It’s the AmeriCorps.”

Glenn continued:

“Heavy taxation with special emphasis on estates, meaning what you leave behind, your will, and incomes of the rich.  Not much taking over of properties or industries in the old socialistic sense, but the formula of the future is control without ownership.  It’s interesting to recall the same formula is used by the management of great corporations in depriving stockholders of power.  And finally, the state control of communications and propaganda.”

Remember, this was written in the 1940’s — the end of WWII — but how much of this is mirroring where the country is today or, at the very least, where it’s headed?

“The strong central government, absolutely been done, and we’re now getting to the point to where the states have no rights,” Glenn explained.

But the danger of this system is how it’s tying everything together to control labor, media, education, and banking, all by linking together with big corporations. And it’s starting in the schools through data mining, which Glenn explained last night on TV.

Glenn’s theory is that big government and big corporations are linking together to achieve their mutual collective goals. Corporations need capital for investments, educated and trained workers, and global markets to be successful. The government needs power to control and plan. When the two join together, they control labor, medical, guns, DHS, banks, education, the media, and food, allowing them to control, limit, train, deceive you, all while building a global marketplace they have control over.

The end result comes close to China, where the state can take kids and train them for certain jobs, has control and oversight over the media, censors the internet, and heavily regulates every aspect of the lives of the people.

Sound crazy? Glenn went on to explain how involved GE and Microsoft are involved in Common Core, currently marching its way into schools across the country.

“I find it interesting that NBC, the arm of this government, is what network?  MSNBC.  MSNBC was owned by what energy corporation?  GE.  What does the “MS” in MSNBC stand for?  Microsoft.  Now, neither GE, nor Microsoft have anything to do with MSNBC anymore, but isn’t it fascinating that GE and Microsoft got together, that now they were the ones who started the propaganda machine.  And they are the ones that are now behind Common Core,” Glenn said.

Four years ago Glenn talked about the machine progressives were building. The new framework that once ready, they would be able to turn on and fundamentally transform America. What does Glenn feel is THE most important piece of that machinery? Common Core. Using education to indoctrinate the youth has been embedded into the progressive agenda, with both the GOP and Democrats championing the terrifying legislation.

“I don’t know of a time that I have really truly called and put a plea out and sent an SOS out,” Glenn explained at the beginning of radio’s second hour today.

“This has already been done. This is way down the road. You’ll be lucky if it’s not in your school next fall, and it is an end run around your, not only around your state and its sovereignty, but it is an end run around your education department in your state, it is an end run around your board of education in your control community and most importantly it is an end run around you as a parent. It changes fundamentally our entire system. This is I believe the most important piece of fundamental transformation and you are going to hear a few things that you will find hard to believe, but I ask you today to please do your own homework. Do not take this at all from me. Do your own homework, and may I recommend you do it today and then you link arms with people and you get back into your 9/12 group.”

For weeks, Glenn has been exposing indoctrination in schools. It started with an expose on CSCOPE, which expanded to Common Core. It was during last week’s episode on Common Core that a guest discussed the scary amounts of data be collected on kids, and last night Glenn uncovered some of the scariest information on this topic yet.

“I’ve asked the experts, what other country is doing anything like this? The only one that’s even close, and it’s not in this ballpark, is China. There’s no one else in this ballpark. Our children are the guinea pigs for the world. We will lead the way. And do you remember when I said we wouldn’t be destroyed; we would be perverted? Profound darkness on this,” Glenn said.

“What I’m going to lay out for you, none of it is opinion; it all comes from government documents and all from either the stimulus package or from the Department of Education. But this is a hostile takeover, the final takeover, and the roots come from the stimulus package, although I believe George W. Bush started this ball rolling long ago in No Child Left Behind. And it really came from the idea of, ‘You want this money, you’re going to have to live by these standards.’ And that was what was in this stimulus package,” he explained.

The 2009 Stimulus Bill included provisions encouraging states to develop data systems for collecting a large amount of information on public-school kids. Today, all 50 states either maintain or are capable of maintaining extensive databases on public-school students.

“This is the summary of the stimulus package, HR 167 under Department of Education, “education for the disadvantaged” is what it says. And then it says for additional amount for education for the disadvantaged to carry out Title I of the elementary and secondary education act of 1965, $13 billion will be ‑‑ I’m going to have to count the zeros ‑‑ $13 billion will be provided. $5 billion shall be available for targeted grants under Section 1125 of ESEA, provided further that $5 billion shall be available for education finance incentive grants,” Glenn said.

“What that money again goes to in the stimulus, you know, 40 or 50 pages later: Improving collection and use of data. The State will establish a longitudinal data system that includes elements described in Section 604(e)(2)(d) of the America COMPETES Act. So you have to look that up. But that’s the key. If you want any money, you have to put together a data collection service. What is the data collection service? Well, this I contend is one of the reasons why we had the turtle tunnels and everything else that everybody talked about. Because it kept you away from things like this: $5 billion.”

“Now, Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education, called this a historic opportunity. I call it bribery. Race to the Top gave the federal government billions of dollars to dangle in front of the cash‑starved states and they dangled and said, ‘All you have to do is sign up for this program. You’ll get the cash.’ And state after state signed.”

Glenn explained that 45 states have signed on but five have backed out, including Texas. However, in Texas they have replaced it with CSCOPE which is equally dangerous.

“But warning: Texas adopted another program almost exactly like it, and the GOP is protecting that program and so you have to be extraordinarily careful because they’ll just rename it. This is not a liberal agenda, this is not a conservative agenda, this is not Republican or Democrat. This is progressive. It is control. States signed up, and they had to develop data systems for collecting large amounts of information on public schoolchildren, and I mean large amounts,” Glenn said.

“These databases will track all kinds of personal data, including but certainly not limited to healthcare histories, income information, the religious affiliation of your family, voting family status, blood types, blood test result, homework completion, hair color, eye color, whether a child was premature or not, do they have any birthmarks, even bus stop arrival information. It goes deep, deep. If they have 44 data points, they can tell you an awful lot about ‑‑ they can tell you just pretty much anything. These are hundreds of data points collected on your children for over 20 years. This is the groundwork for a national student database that will track your kids and their personal information from preschool until the stated end of 20,” Glenn said.

“What Common Core and this data collection system really is, the easiest way to understand it, and this is my personal understanding and my personal opinion. I want to separate fact from my opinion so you’re very clear. But the best way I think to describe it is, you know how China goes in and they find the kids that have the most talent for gymnastics and they’ll say, that kid’s going to be fantastic as a gymnast. That kid is a great mathematician. He’s going to work in our nuclear power programs. That’s what happens. By the time you’re 7, your lot is cast,” Glenn explained.

“That’s exactly what this is and that’s why these corporations want this so much. Because they will cast the lots, they will find the best workers by the time they’re 7 and then they will enrich and empower and educate those kids. But if your kid, God forbid, ends up like me when I was 7 or 8, I don’t have a chance. I will be a cog in the machine forever, and you will ‑‑ there will be no escape. There will be no college education.”

“What you will see is state capitalism. Google, Microsoft, GE, data mining our schools to nudge our children into the job the State deems the most needed for the future,” Glenn warned.

GE is one of the companies funding Common Core through it’s foundation.

Now, most parents would assume that any information collected on their kids by the schools would be protected by some kind of privacy laws, right? Not anymore.

Glenn explained last night:

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act used to protect the privacy of kids and a parents written consent was needed to release data. But in 2012, regulations were used to change the need to get parental consent. Now all the information the schools started collecting in 2009 can be shared among various federal agencies and without consent as long as whoever requests it is “conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school”. According to the National Data Collection Model, the government should collect information on health-care history, family income and family voting status along with religious affiliation and extra curricular activity, and more.

Glenn warned that when fighting back and spreading the word about Common Core, there is a good chance that concerned parents will be treated like conspiracy theorists. Already in Oregon, parents who pushed back on the program were portrayed as kooks who were anti-science.
