Is it crazy to prepare for civil unrest?

A Texas judge has come under fire for comments he made about the potential for civil unrest in this country. The judge believes that contingency plans must be put in place in the event that some sort of worst-case scenario becomes a reality.

JUDGE: [The president is] going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN. Okay, what's going to happen when that happens? I'm thinking worst case scenario now.

VOICE: Right. Right. I understand.

JUDGE: Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. I mean, we're not talking just a few riots here and demonstrations. We're talking, we're talking Lexington and Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.

“What is the insane part of this premise,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “To me the insane part of this premise is the president of the United States is going to hand over sovereignty to the United Nations. I don't think that's going to happen. I can imagine a lot of scenarios. I just don't think that that's going to happen.”

While the scenario the judge has put forth seems highly unlikely, Glenn likened the situation to that of a hurricane. If you live in a place that doesn’t get hit by hurricanes often do you forgo proper preparation because nine times out of ten you won’t be affected by it, or do you prepare in the case of emergency?

Regardless of whether you agree with the claims of civil unrest, the idea of being ready to face even the worst-case scenario isn’t all that crazy. “I am much more comfortable listening to a guy who says, ‘Let's prepare for the worst case scenario,’” Glenn said.

When you look at many of the safety and defense mechanisms we have in place in the United States, many would fall under the ‘worst-case scenario’ category. “What is Homeland Security? Isn't that worst case scenario,” Glenn asked. “What is the Pentagon? Isn't that worst case scenario? What is DEFCON 1? Isn't that worst case scenario?”

“Was it likely that the Soviet Union was going to pulverize us, and we would have a full scale nuclear war? No. Did we prepare for it? Yes,” he continued. “Isn't, isn't the job of the people in charge to prepare for the worst case scenario?”

On a more local level, have you prepared for family for a job loss or a food shortage? Have you made contingency plans in case there is a fire or a natural disaster? In terms of probability, many of these events are highly unlikely, but that doesn’t mean you don’t prepare.

At the end of the day, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. “Call your state representative, not the Washington clowns. Call your state representative. Call your sheriff. Call your mayor. Call a neighborhood meeting,” Glenn said. “Who's prepared? Are you prepared?”

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
