Rush Limbaugh’s bleak outlook: We are on the road to the Great Depression

On Friday, Rush Limbaugh made a bold and dire declaration on his radio program: If things don’t change, we are on a collision course with the Great Depression. Limbaugh believes there will come a time when the United States truly “collapses” and the value of money “evaporates.” At that point, people will lose their savings, pensions, and investments and will be lined up for food and shelter. On radio this morning, Glenn played the audio and discussed some of the steps we can take to avoid the fate.

Listen to the segment via the Daily Rushbo below:

“Do you remember the days when we were saying these things,” Glenn asked. “Rush was much smarter, quite honestly, than [me] was or anybody else. And he didn't get too far out in front of the parade. There was no reason to get too far out in front of the parade. He was much smarter by saying, ‘Let's just see. We've seen bad things happen before.’ Now he has seen it. He's proven it all out.”

Listening to the audio, Glenn couldn’t help but feel as though he and Limbaugh aren’t all that far apart on this issue. On one hand, the agreement is astounding. On the other hand, it is slightly depressing.

“Rush is, in many ways, right where we are. That's astounding… Kind of depresses me a little bit because he's usually right,” Glenn explained. “When you see what he's saying here, it's true. They will come after the pensions. They will come after the savings. And these things will work out that way.”

“There's no way out right now,” Pat added.

Glenn believes, however, there are steps that can be taken to reverse course and avoid a Great Depression-style collapse. Energy independence is one solution.

“The way out is through our own energy,” Glenn said. “When Rush says these things are coming – yes, Venezuela is right around the corner from us. But if we can get these guys in Congress to start turning this around, we can save ourselves. We really can. We can't do it without the White House, but you can save yourself. It won't be saved by the Republicans.”

Furthermore, Obamacare doesn’t just need to be ‘fixed.’ It needs to be scrapped entirely.

“I'm not for fixing Obamacare. I am not for certainly expanding it. I am for the full, entire repeal of it,” Glenn said. “To reset this thing, it's also going to need a rebooting of the entire healthcare system because the entire healthcare system is so corrupt right now… This isn't a Barack Obama problem. This has been happening with the Republicans and Democrats for years.”

If we use the 2014 midterms to elect strong, Constitutionally minded candidates, there is a real chance we can straighten some of these problems out. Ultimately, however, the American people must remember if you put your faith in man over principle, you will be disappointed every time.

“It's as we said a few years ago. Everything you think you know, everything you think you can trust, everything you think is solid will become liquid. Everything you think you can believe in will go soft. Everything,” Glenn concluded. “You have to know what is really truly true and worth betting on… If you put your faith in man over a principle, you're going to be disappointed every time. Every time.”

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

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."
