Uh oh: Stock market is tracking just like 1929

On yesterday’s radio program, Glenn discussed a chart that shows remarkable parallels between the Dow Jones Industrial Average leading up to the 1929 crash and today. Tom DeMark, the founder and CEO of DeMark Analytics, discovered the trend found on the graph, and he joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss what the eerie pattern could mean for the United States.

“I want to bring on Tom DeMark, the CEO and founder of DeMark Analytics. This is the guy who just started to map 1928, 1929, then he laid over the last two years here, and he found something that is really quite disturbing. They are almost identical,” Glenn said. “If you chart the Dow and what it's doing in 1928 to 29 in the crash and what the Dow is doing now in the last two years, it show… if it continues to chart this way, it would show that our 1929 Depression-era crash happens in April.”

Tom explained that he has been in the investment business for almost 45 years, and he has always been considered overly optimistic. In the last five or six years, however, he has found himself more and more discouraged by the analytics he has seen.

“We try the measure supply and demand because that's what drives prices. There's a major component, which is sentiment, and extremes are met at highs and lows. There's extreme optimism or pessimism. So we try to measure those and incorporate them into fundamentals,” Tom said. “But what's happened in the last five years has been really troubling. What had worked in the past and seems to work globally - it works very well in the Far East, Middle East and our analysis there - but the domestic market here in the States is troubling.”

“It seems like there's an influence that seems to incite fear every time we approach what appears to be a top in the market,” he continued. “At bottoms, it works very well, but at top, there seems to be interference, and we don't know where it's coming from… It became common knowledge that it was the Central Banks… It's tough to adjust at the tops. With the bottoms, we are able to identify bottoms.”

The trend found in his latest graph was actually stumbled upon accidently. After tracking the 2008 crash against the stock market decline of the 1970s, he began looking into the stock market patterns of the last couple of years.

“So we're looking at the chart, and it is phenomenal,” Glenn said. “Am I reading this right… if they continue to chart the same, we have the October 1929 crash in April?”

“Well, we could have had it last week. There was a 10% chance that could happen. It probably won't and the market will rally and we have seen the rally now,” Tom said. “There's two scenarios currently: If the Dow Jones Average closes above 16,000 next Monday and Tuesday, then there's a chance yes, we could go down. And it could be something comparable to 1987. We're shifting things a little. Our two templates, 1929, 1987 are being adjusted. It's possible that could happen.

“We have to have a trigger. The trigger would be we'd have to decline on the S&P average below 1762,” he continued. “We have been using that for some time… It's so widely known right now, and we are a firm believer, that markets have bottomed because the last seller, figuratively speaking, has sold. We think a lot of people have sold based upon this comparison. So it may be premature right now, but it's going to happen.”

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
