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.”

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
