Toby, a Joplin resident, called in to talk to Glenn about the storms. “ I have never seen anything like this in my life. I've got neighbors' houses that have just collapsed,” he said.

“I decided I was going to find somebody with a uniform and try to help out. I ran into some cops from a neighboring town who said go door to door, make sure everyone's okay. And when you know everyone's okay, just mark the house with a with something. Luckily I ran into some people who had some spray paint and I started marking red Xs on houses, or what used to be houses. There's just piles of rubble. I don't I've never seen anything like this except for, you know, watching the news during the Bosnia thing and where we bombed, and it is literally looks like a bomber went right down the center of our town.”

“It also warms my heart to see that when I was doing what I was doing yesterday and just walking through the wreckage trying to make sure everyone was okay and do what I could, which, I'm not qualified to offer any real assistance except a strong back to help lift somebody out of something. But the neighbors had already made a count of everybody. I would walk down a neighborhood and they would say that house, that house, that house, everyone's accounted for. And to see that, that they had already checked on their neighbors and made sure they were okay, it gladdened me. It made me feel proud of my city. I missed all this. And like I said, just pray for us,” Toby said.

After speaking with Toby, Glenn said that he wanted to do something to help the residents of Joplin, but wasn’t sure where to start. He said that he didn’t want to show up and just stand around and be in the way – or even look like he was there for publicity ala John Kerry.

He also said he was impressed with how much the local community was already doing. “Between the economy and nature, look at how resilient people are. They don't even know where to start again. Would you? If my town was devastated like that, what do you do?”

“Amazing people helping each other out and holding the line,” Glenn added.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
