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

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!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
