Scattered Showers of Journalism: "Today Show" finally catches up to Glenn on Greek economy

For months, Glenn has been warning that economic collapse is coming to the Europe and that it would eventually spread to the United States and the rest of the world. Well, it seems like the mainstream media is starting to catch on to the reality of economic peril facing Europe - even if they are only talking about Greece at this point.

The Today Show reported this morning on the crisis in Greece. Their correspondent Keith Miller said (emphasis ours):

The Greek government is under tremendous pressure to reach a deal, a new bailout. If they can't reach an agreement, Greece could be the first country in the European Monetary Union to default. That would send the economy here into a death spiral. There are already signs of an economy in collapse. Soup kitchens and bread lines are packed with people without jobs and little hope of finding one.

....

Greece...is bankrupt. For decades the country lived well and worked little, all on borrowed money. Now Greece is suffering under severe austerity measures imposed by its neighbors as conditions for a bailout.

How bad is it? Keith Miller said, "The basic fabric of life is unraveling. Suicides up 40%. Homicide and violent crime up almost 100% and cuts in social services so deep it is making the greeks sick, literally. Hospital admissions jumped 24%, even as hospital budgets were cut by 40%."

Wow, that sounds a lot like what Glenn has been saying on radio and TV for a while, huh?

The report does ignore the fact that these problems could spread to the rest of Europe and the United States, something Glenn has been saying for months.

Glenn reacts below:

In December of 2010, Glenn warned:

"It is truly elegant the way that this country and the globe is being conned into a collective government. I want to go back to Europe and show now the choice in Europe. You know that they first said that they had to give lots of bailout money and it had to be staggering amounts - does this sound familiar - to shock the system over in Europe. And it went to Greece and that was supposed to stop the dominoes from falling. And now the next domino is starting to fall and that is Ireland. And the Irish didn’t want it. And they were forced by the EU to take it, otherwise all the other dominoes would fall. Well, there’s more dominoes to come. It’s going to be Portugal and then it will be Spain. It’s over."

On January 24th, Glenn presented a new theory on what was coming along with economic collapse:

Economic Collapse is coming. First to Europe, then to the U.S. and the rest of the world.

As a result:

1) The dollar will no longer be gold standard.

2) Civil War, unlike Civil War of the 1860s, will be fought in our inner cities led by radicals (anarchists, communists, revolutionaries, and Islamists)

3) This conflict will be fed and fueled by those in power in Washington D.C. and in our universities

4) Global War is coming

5) Radical Islamists and Communists will seek violence in our cities and on our border as they pour in from South America and Mexico to reclaim land

6) Farmers will be urged to farm collectively

7) Violence and famine will follow

CNN learns the HARD way not to mess with GOP candidate Kari Lake

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.
