The Egyptian Glenn Beck?

The New York Times released a story yesterday about an Egyptian television host, Tawfik Okasha, who is being referred to as the ‘Egyptian Glenn Beck.’

“Have you seen the video of what is being called the Egyptian Glenn Beck,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “That's what they're calling him over in Egypt, the Egyptian Glenn Beck. He's called the Egyptian Glenn Beck because he's on Egyptian television and he's been saying, ‘the Muslim Brotherhood, they're Islamic extremists they are in bed with the leftists here,’ and ‘Egypt, stay away from these guys.’”

The Times refers to Okasha as “the host of a popular television program known for his embrace of conspiratorial thinking and hatred of leftists and political Islam,” who “railed against Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, or SCAF, on live television.” And in true New York Times fashion, the video that accompanies the story on their website mocks Okasha as some sort of bumbling idiot:

“That's the way they're reporting on the guy who said, ‘Hey, by the way, this is an Islamic extremist group, they're going to take hold and they're in bed with the left,’” Glenn said frustrated.

As they mock this man for his ‘conspiracy theories,’ they fail to report on the speech given by newly elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, who just so happens to be a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Morsi’s words roughly translate to something like:

The Quran is our Constitution. The Quran was and will continue to be our constitution. The prophet Muhammad is our leader. Jihad is our path and death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration. Above all, Allah is our goal. I take an oath before Allah and before you all that regardless of the actual text, Allah willing the text will truly reflect Sharia.

And somehow Okasha is the crazy conspiracy theorist?

“That is Morsi himself,” Pat said. “That is the new Egyptian President saying he will follow Sharia law.”

Morsi and his advisors have also made claims that a caliphate is coming (looks like the media owes Glenn an apology on that one), and Jerusalem will be the center of the Muslim caliphate. Doesn’t really sound like Egypt is planning to respect that peace treaty with Israel, huh.

Clearly Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wasn't listening to the same speech from Morsi because all she seems to be able to do is talk about how positive all of this is:

We've heard some very positive statements coming from Morsi so far. We'll have to wait and judge by what's actually done.

Sure.

“That's crazy,” Glenn said. “This is an Egyptian broadcaster [Okasha] saying a caliphate is coming, they're in bed with the left, and the Muslim Brotherhood are extremists. Listen to what he says. And what is [the media] doing? Mocking him and trying to drive him out.”

“I am standing up for what [Okasha] said – what I read about in the New York Times – that a caliphate is coming, these are Islamic extremists that you've got to be away from and the left is in bed with them,” Glenn concluded. “I stand with him on that. What he says elsewhere, I have no idea.”

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.
