UN: Capitalism, schmapitalism - it's time for a revolution!

Secretary-General of the Unite Nations, Ban Ki-moon, whose recent comments on capitalism and climate change have a storng anti-capitalism and andti-democracy undertone. Glenn put Ki-Moon’s recent comments from the World Economic Forum into context.

With Egypt on the verge of collapse, Glenn feels that there is a strong anti-Western sentiment sweeping different parts of the world. First, he tackled comments from the Ayatollah in Iran.

“All of these protests in Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan and Yemen are inspired by Iran's Islamic revolution, and these countries are de facto rocked by the aftershock of the Iranian revolution, the ultra conservative cleric added.  [The Ayatollah] says, in the Middle East soon there will be Islamic rulership and a democracy based on religion.  He is saying here also that it's the end of an era of the Western-backed dictators.  And that is true,” Glenn said.

Glenn agreed with this statement, and criticized the US foreign policy which saw America back dictators that were at least better than  someone who was “Islamofascist”. “We should have stood for freedom the whole time.  But we didn't,” Glenn said.

Then, he played audio from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.

“For most of the last century economic growth was fuelled by what seemed to be a certain truth:  The abundance of natural resources.  We mined our way to growth.  We burned our way to prosperity.  We believed in consumption without consequences.  Those days are gone.  In the 21st century, supplies are running short and the global thermostat is running high every day.  Climate change is also showing us that the old model is more than obsolete.  It has rendered it extremely dangerous.  Over time, that model is a recipe for national disaster.  It is a global suicide pact.

So what do we do in this current challenging situation?  How can we create growth in a resource-constrained environment?  How do we lift billions of people from poverty while protecting the planet and ecosystems that support economic growth?  How do we regain the balance?  All of this requires rethinking, sometimes out-of-box thinking.  Here at Davos this meeting of the mighty and the powerful, represented by some key countries of present, it may sound stranger to speak of revolution, but that is what we need at this time.  We need a revolution, revolutionary thinking, revolutionary action.  A free market revolution for global sustainability.  It is easy to mouth the words "Sustainable development" but to make it happen, we have to be prepared to make major changes,” Ban Ki-Moon said.

“ I'm not calling him a danger,” Glenn said of Ban Ki-Moon. “I'm calling him a truth-teller.”

“He's suggesting that the old model is obsolete.  What is the old model?  The old model is Western style free market democracy and a republic.  That's the old model.  It needs to be thrown out.  Because that model is a global suicide pact.”

But while world leaders encourage less consumption, countries like China are preparing for more growth and more consumption.

“The fact that the Chinese just built a dam, the Three Gorges Dam that is so big, so massive that scientists say that we've slowed the planet's rotation down by a fraction of a second.  That they are building how many new coal plants a week, two new coal plants a week?  That they are now the largest buyer of automobiles in the world over the United States?  They are not slowing down.  In fact, they have so much growth ahead of them, they are going to dwarf us quickly.”

Glenn said that the revolution that’s being called for isn’t a green revolution for clean energy or sustainability. If it were, then governments wouldn’t be encouraging growth through stimulus and consumption.

“What did George Bush say after 9/11?  Consumption is the only thing that this model works on.  Go out and consume, go out and consume.  When they are saying we're going to stimulate the economy and they're going to give you your money, what are they hoping you do?”

Glenn said that the revolution won’t be peaceful. It will be like Tunisia. It will be like Egypt. “Having a revolution because the old model is obsolete.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
