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?”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

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.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
