Glenn: "We are enslaving ourselves"

On GBTV tonight, Glenn laid out four key ways in which the American people were start to enslave themselves: 1) slave to a master 2) slave to debt 3) slave to illiteracy and 4) slave to ignorance. While some of these concepts are well known, there are ways in which people across the world are allowing themselves to succumb to slavery.

Take, for example, the slave to a master. This is by far the most well known and while in the past this was a person enslaved to a plantation, Glenn pointed out today that there are people caught up in sex trade and those caught up in migrant labor. And rather than go after the companies that employ illegal workers and the politicians who refuse to enforce the border and emphasize legal immigration, the average American is left footing the bill as the administration circumvents Congress and decides to not deport illegal immigrants.

Glenn then moved onto "slave to debt", noting that the government is currently $16 Trillion in debt.

"The over $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities? Good luck. They've racked up a debt of over $50,000 per person in the United States. That's up over $15,000 per person since Obama took office," Glenn explained.

"So we know how bad they suck. But what about you? 43% of American households spend more than they take in each year. The average American will spend $600,000 on interest over their lifetime. We have an average of $25,000 on college loans and $6,472 on credit cards. That's the average," he added.

Glenn said that people in debt usually are forced to make tough and often horrible choices - like a woman who resorts to stripping to pay her way through medical school.

And the worst thing is that people are doing it to themselves. Rather than live on a budget, the American people are spending more than they take in every month, and if they are going to break free they have to stop.

He then moved on to #3 Slave to Illiteracy.

Glenn said that African Americans weren't allowed to read during slavery because the owners knew the more educated they were and the more they could read and write, the better chance they had at becoming free.

"Today our schools are failing us. America is one of the top spenders on education - $2 trillion in the last 44 years - but when it comes to results, we're not getting the payoff," Glenn said.

"Out of 34 civilized countries, American kids rank 25th in math, 14th in reading, and 17th in science," Glenn said.

And despite these statistics, no one is actually trying to fix the problems and education reform falls underneath the crushing weight of progressive policies and the might of the teacher's unions.

And finally, Glenn discussed the fourth way we are enslaving ourselves - the slavery to ignorance.

"How many friends do you know who don't pay attention to the news whatsoever? They couldn't tell you what's going on in Greece or the EU. They think QE3 is a game show or an english boat? Have no idea who George Soros is. If you don't know what's going on - guess what? Someone else is going to be making all the decisions for you," Glenn said.

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."
