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."

 

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
