Occupy protester had seizure at Beck book signing

Glenn has talked at length on radio and TV for years about getting the junk out of your life, prepare, and be a lifeboat to others. Be ready to help anyone who asks and anyone who needs it. Besides just being the right thing to do, there are other reasons -- like the one discovered on book tour this weekend when an Occupy protester at Glenn's signing had a seizure. Who helped and who didn't?

"An Occupy demonstrator had an apparent seizure while protesting Glenn Beck's book signing in Alabama on Friday, forcing the Occupy participants to end their protest early. WKRG TV reported hundreds of Beck fans turned out in Fairhope, Alabama where he was signing copies of his latest book Being George Washington. But when Beck arrived, about two dozen Occupy protestors started chanting at the front of the line. For about 15 minutes, the shouting was heated until ‑‑ this is according to the TV station ‑ the shouting was heated until one of the protestors fell and began shaking uncontrollably," Glenn said.

"It was an ugly, ugly scene. Police officers and other protestors surrounded the young man until an ambulance arrived. This appeared to take the wind out of everybody's sails and the protest stopped on a serious note. The book signing continued without the loud chanting that preceded it," Glenn said.

"First of all, the video that you see, the scary moment during the protest, was taken by one of my people. Before we came to this town, we had had two other Occupy Wall Street scares, and I want you to know that if you're ever in a crowd and these things happen, love them. Sing, 'We wish you a merry Christmas.' Do not shout them down, do not get into a shouting match. Love them. Love them. Love them," Glenn said.

So what happened behind-the-scenes at this signing?

"We're on the bus and we're on our way to Alabama and we find out that this is going to be a nasty Occupy Wall Street stop which we had known about all day. And I said before we got there, I said, 'Let's all say a prayer.'"

"So there's about ten of us on this bus. And so we stop and we all say a prayer, not just for protection but also to be able to love these people. Love them. And as we are getting closer, I'm talking to Craig and I can see that he's a little skeptical on what I am announcing on Thursday and it ‑‑ and I had just said to him, 'Look, this puts us right in the middle of people who are going to be spitting on us, calling us names, wanting to kill us, calling us the devil, but we're going to love them.' We're going to love them every step of the way, and it will change hearts."

"There's one woman who is part of the Occupy movement who grabs his head as he starts to come down to the ground, grabs his head and cushions his head so it doesn't slam onto the street. Nobody else does anything. Craig, who's with me, unbeknownst to me, goes and rushes in and holds the guy's leg down. The guy ‑‑ the video stops almost immediately after this guy goes down because my other guy, Jeremy, he stops the video and he goes and he grabs the other leg of the guy to try to help him. They're loving him."

"So anyway, he says, what did you people do to him? Craig turns around and said ‑‑ addresses the crowd. Who ‑‑ only the woman from ‑‑ my understanding, only that woman is helping. Everybody else is standing around. And my guy turns around and says, 'What is wrong with you people? What is wrong with you? We're helping him.' That's when the Occupied crowd looks at the guy who says, what did you do with him ‑‑ what did you do to him and said, 'Knock it off, man. They're helping.' There was a moment ‑‑ not saying we agree with each other. There was a moment of sanity. The guy was taken to the hospital and refused to be seen, refused to be ‑‑ and I only know this because I asked about him afterwards. We wanted to know the status after, make sure that he was okay, and he was taken to the hospital, refused treatment and then demanded to be taken back to the protest."

"But here's the amazing thing. At the end of the book signing, a woman came in. I've never seen her before. I didn't know what had happened outside. I didn't know that my two people had loved him and helped him. The woman who cradled his head on the street, the second in command of Occupy Wall Street, came in to me and she was in line," Glenn said.

"All the security knew who she was but I didn't and so I see everybody kind of close in around me and I'm like, 'Don't freak out, don't freak out, don't freak out, don't say anything.' And I said, hi. Merry Christmas. And she said, 'Listen.' And she was awkward but nice. She said, 'Listen. I'm the, you know, co‑founder or whatever of the Occupy movement here and we were outside protesting you.' And I said, yes. Okay, nice to meet you. And she handed me a pamphlet and she said, I just wanted you ‑‑ I thought you should see what we were saying about you firsthand. And I said, 'Well, thank you very much.' I said, 'I believe in freedom of speech. So thank you. I appreciate that.' She said, 'Well, there.' And she started to walk away. And I said, merry Christmas. She turned to me and she said, 'Yeah, merry Christmas.' And walked away."

"Make sure you are with me on Thursday. It is not going to be an easy road. But it is, I believe, the only road, at least the only road that I can take. And I know how this ends in a bad way if we fail, and I know how this can end in a good way if we succeed. It was divine providence that protected us. It was divine providence that Craig got on the bus."

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.
