America's Credit rating survived Great Depression, but not two years of Obama

Is Glenn being “punked”? Every time the White House administration says something – the opposite happens. Take for instance the downgrade that happened late Friday, Glenn ahs been warning about it for years despite others calling him crazy. “Our credit rating survived the Great Depression. Our credit rating has not survived the first two and a half years of the Obama administration.”

Take for instance Timothy Geithner, who when asked “Is there a risk that the United States could lose its AAA credit rating” Geithner responded, “No risk of that”.

And how is everybody reacting?

An anchor reported on Warren Buffets comments, “I don't get it. It doesn't make sense what S&P did. In Omaha, and this is a quote, the U.S. is still AAA rated. Of course, Omaha is where Berkshire Hathaway is based. And then he said if they were a quadruple rating, Liz, I'd give it to the USA.”

The reporter also said that Buffet told her that “the United States to his knowledge owes no money in currency other than the U.S. dollar, which the United States treasury can print.”

“We'll just print more,” Glenn said.

“Which just means that the money you'd be getting would be worth a lot less,” Stu said.

Now, the radio crew has a habit of archiving some of Glenn’s “crazier” predictions, mainly to mock him later on. But today, Stu played the clips to show how accurate Glenn has been in predicting the current state of the economy.

February 6th, 2008:

And you get Hillary Clinton in office and she gives you universal healthcare, my theory is it will only last about four years because there's just no way that it could we could afford it. We will be downgraded as for our credit rating, interest rates will go up for all of the all of the debt that we have. Let's get an economist on and see if they will play just wargame that scenario out for me.

Here's why it won't last. Because you cannot put something that large on the table without addressing Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security already. The credit of the United States will be downgraded. The rest of the world will now we're not serious by any stretch of the imagination. In a very short period of time, foreign governments will say I'm not loaning these people any money because they can't pay it back.

Wow, seems like Glenn was pretty accurate on that one, right?

“They were playing politics in 2008. They are playing politics today. Everyone said that that was unthinkable, it would not happen. Why? Because it never has. We're the United States of America. It will never happen here. I said bullcrap. The laws of risks and economic physics, they just don't they don't break down at our borders. Numbers are numbers. That's just the way it works. No, it's not going to happen. Well, now it has. The unthinkable has happened,” Glenn said.

“The unthinkable has happened. What I have been mocked for for a long time has now happened, and what are they doing about it? They are now blaming the Tea Party, or they're blaming the president or they're blaming this or they're blaming that, or they're even blaming S&P,” Glenn said.

“If no one wakes up from this, nothing is going to wake them up.”

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
