The war on the dollar

Tonight on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn put two maps side-by-side. He created the first map on his former cable news program about two years ago. The map showed the countries that Glenn predicted would experience unrest and riots that would sweep through the Middle East begin to spread across the globe.

He believed that radicals, Islamists, communists, socialists would:

  • will work together against Israel
  • will work together against capitalism
  • will work together to overturn stability

He was ridiculed by both the left and the right for the map.

The second map was used on the very same cable news network over the weekend.

So, where does the world stand today? Glenn shared some stories you most likely haven't heard in the news.

  • In South Africa, an all out labor strike has resulted in 'lethal' clashes with the police as they fire rubber bullets to disperse crowds.
  • Spain, Greece and Portugal are still broke and more austerity talks have been met by more violent protests.
  • In China, violent protests and calls for "war with Japan" have begun following Japan's move to take control of islands that have long been claimed for by both countries. In what is sure to be completely unrelated Japan's ambassador to China died suddenly this week.
  • Iran's Revolutionary Guard announced that they have troops on the ground now in Syria.
  • U.S. Embassies have been violently attacked in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Lebanon, India, Bangladesh, and Indonesia, to name a few.
  • A huge fleet of warships from more than 25 countries, including: the U.S., Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, have formed in the Strait of Hormuz to conduct a 'military exercise'.
  • The United States also has a nuclear powered supercarrier headed to the same region, and should arrive in about 10 days.

But that's not all. Glenn also shared Netanyahu's comments from over the weekend on Iran's nuclear capabilities.

"But tonight I don't want to talk to you about war," Glenn told viewers.

"I want to talk to you about the war on the dollar. I want to try and explain what is being done to our economy, and what this means to you."

Glenn prefaced his statement with this:

"If you think you are prepared, please check that you are prepared again. You need cash on hand, gold and silver. God. You have to have food. The world is going to change dramatically - the world as you know it is not going to remain like this. I want to show you the economy and why you really need to know what is going on."

Glenn explained that America's credit rating was downgraded again - something his critics said would never happen.

China keeps building "ghost cities" to keep their people employed and to keep them from rioting, but like Glenn already explained, they're rioting. Are they really the future of the economy that so many power players on the left claim them to be?

"Two years ago the Fed owned the most American debt," Glenn said, "and since then it has exploded."

Under Obama the Fed's holdings of U.S. debt have quintupled - increasing a whopping 452%.

"On January 28th, 2009, the Fed owned $302 billion in U.S. Treasury Securities," he explained to viewers. "On April 25th, 2012, the date of the last report, the Fed owned $1.668 trillion."

Experts say that by the end of 2014 the Fed will own as much as $5 trillion worth of debt. This becomes a big problem for the value of your dollar because the Fed doesn't have that kind of money.

"They do was many common criminals do when they don't have money, but still want it - they print it."

Last week, the Fed announced QE3, this could be the week that put the final nail in the coffin of America's economy.

Glenn reminded viewers of George Soro's comments on the declining U.S. dollar, Andy Stern and other union leader's comments on the "workers of the world uniting" and their goal of globally leveling the playing field.

"Their goal is to level the global playing field. To make things "fair". They know that printing more money weakens the dollar. They're not printing to help America - they're printing it to achieve global equality," Glenn said.

The "99%ers" of the United States of America, are the 1%ers to the rest of the world.

Glenn explained that the scariest part of QE3 is that there is no set amount - there is no end to the printing. It starts at $40 billion, then it's unlimited. The Fed has an unchecked green light to print as much money as they want - making it all that much easier to destroy the dollar.

"That's exactly what happens when there is a rapid increase in the money supply that isn't supported by growth in the output of goods and services," Glenn explain, referring to Weimar.

Glenn gave example of example of countries who attempted to print their way out of economic trouble - none of which did so successfully. In fact, they all resulted in one major thing: massive inflation.

"I don't know what the point of no return is," Glenn said, "but I do know that we are going the wrong direction."

 

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
