Three unbelievable news stories + three "crazy" Glenn predictions = One MUST WATCH monologue

I want to start with three stories tonight happening right now that we were mocked by the media only two years ago if we said these things. You were totally off your trolley, as they would say across the pond. The first story, of course, the caliphate and the Muslim extremism, the warnings that we gave of the caliphate well chronicled during the Arab Spring. Here are the hits.

Glenn: When I say that there is a caliphate, it is a desire of the Islamic extremists in the Middle East, that’s not a conspiracy theory.

Okay, got it. No, it’s not a conspiracy theory. It was total rubbish. It was tomfoolery. It was off the trolley. Early this morning, seven terrorists assaulted a Pakistani school, armed to the teeth, wearing suicide vests. They left 132 children dead, 141 in nearly eight hours of brutal fighting. The terrorists poured gasoline on a teacher, set them all on fire, and made the kids watch them burn alive.

They didn’t make any demands. They just executed people, executed children one by one. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the slaughter. I’m sorry, is that the trolley? In 2007, I described right after Beslan exactly this scenario. I said Al Qaeda would start doing things like this in a conversation I had with Brad Thor. Watch.

Thor: Glenn, since 1995, Al Qaeda has been organizing everything that’s been going on through Chechnya and in Russia. These are Al Qaeda operatives. They were Al Qaeda groups. They were men from Chechnya and then men from outside Russia who were part of this siege at Beslan, and the big thing we need to remember here, Glenn, is that Osama bin Laden has told us what I have visited upon Russia, I will visit upon America a hundredfold. This is a dress rehearsal. We’ve just heard from the expert on it, and if we don’t protect ourselves here, it’s coming to America.

Yeah, and it still is coming to America, but they’re just going to visit the easy places around the world first. You know, we would have never beaten Germany had we not named the enemy and defined them in the clearest possible terms. So let’s define our enemy. They are animals. They are not misguided youths or freedom fighters. They aren’t rebels or moderate rebels. They are radicals. They are evil. They are sick. They are twisted. They are depraved. They are rabid.

They gain pleasure out of torturing, raping, enslaving, and killing. They are the enemy of God and all mankind, and they need to be completely eradicated from the earth, period. That is what our president should say. This slaughter, by the way, in Pakistan, came one day after Sydney. By the way, I have a friend who lives in Australia on the other side of the planet write to me this morning. She said TheBlaze had the best coverage on that crisis out of all the major news outlets in Australia. Why is that? Because no one will actually clearly define who the enemy is.

This was on the heels of months of terror in Iraq and Syria. It was recently reported that when ISIS entered into a small town and demanded everyone convert to Islam, like caliphates do, four children all under 15 years of age refused. “Say the words,” ISIS demanded. “No, we love Yeshua.” That’s Jesus. “Say it.” “We won’t. We love Jesus.” All four were beheaded.

Did you know that there were 1.5 million Christians in Iraq a decade ago, and now there are less than half a million, many of which continue to flee? Why? Because there is no coexisting with evil, and by this, of course, we are talking about those who want to reestablish the caliphate by force and behead anyone. This is something we can all agree on, the same kind of tomfoolery I was mocked for warning about in 2011.

All right, now here’s the second story…man, sometimes you just have to stop making predictions, because I’m bad on the timing, but they all come true. God, help us, because I see the future, and you’d better buckle up. Back in, I think, when was this, Tiffany, 2007? 2007, I said oil would be a problem that would cause Russia to collapse and in turn destabilize the region and the world. Watch.

Glenn: If gas prices were going down because all of a sudden this country had an energy policy, and the rest of the world, they went oh my gosh, America is getting serious, this would be a celebratory thing, this is a great thing, but because gas is going down with no other factors, that is people saying the economy around the entire world is going to come to a grinding halt. So while it’s a good sign to your pocketbook in the short term, it is a very bad sign in the long term, and you destabilize the Middle East and Russia and all the dangerous players because they’ve got to have high oil prices.

Destabilizing Russia, oh, that could never happen, right? The statists all said, they practically bragged about economic turnaround in Russia with Vladimir Putin. Last night, I was in the car with my daughter, and she said, “Dad, look at gas prices.” We passed a gas station, and she says this is so great, look how low they are. She looked at me with those eager eyes, awaiting some positive reinforcement, and I wondered what kind of monster would, you know, burst her sweet little bubble.

And I just kind of sat there for a second, and I think my face betrayed me. And she went, “Oh geez, what?” I said, “Actually, it’s not so great, Honey,” because fracking no longer makes sense. It no longer makes money, and all signs point to the Saudis keeping the fuel prices artificially low in order to punish their enemies, Iran and Russia, and we are also on that list as well.

We might be helping them because Russia is our number one geopolitical foe. I know, daddy downer is probably what she was thinking, but yesterday oil settled at 55.91 per barrel. That’s the lowest since May 2009. Here’s why this is a problem. Iran’s budget is built on oil at $135 a barrel. Russia has their oil budgeted at $100 to $107 a barrel, so this is hurting them badly. It’s good for us, except on the fracking front, but it’s bad for them.

OPEC has said that they will not decrease their oil production even if it hits $40 a barrel. The question remains why? The Fed also has indicated that they will not budge either. Russia’s economy is in a tailspin. Yesterday its currency crashed, and in in a desperate attempt to stabilize things, Russia had their central bank jack its interest rates. Try this, imagine going into a bank and trying to buy a house, and your interest rate is 10.5, and the very next day it’s 17%. That’s what happened yesterday, and yet there were lines around the block today.

This is in front of banks and also any kind of money changer. They’re all taking their money out of banks, trying to get the ruble out, and they’re changing it for any other currency, just not Russian. This is bad. It doesn’t take an economic genius to see it’s not sustainable. Russia, the bear, now been backed into a corner. They have to get oil to rise, so what is the easiest way to do that? Oh, I know. Of course, that’ll never happen because nobody ever goes to war for oil, do they?

When I come back from vacation, I will share with you one of the scariest scenarios to date. We have shown you the caliphate before it came. We showed you Al Qaeda. I’ve warned you of Osama bin Laden in ‘99 before anybody else was. We have shown you some really scary things that have happened. This one is really frightening because it ties into Russia. It ties into Iran, and remember, we told you about the 12th Imam, which was scary.

When you see what’s happening in Russia, it all ties together, and the people are real, they’re behind it, and they are active, and the only way it comes to fruition is if Russia feels it’s on the road to economic collapse. But don’t worry, Putin kills sharks with his bare hands. There’s nothing to worry about. The interest rates going up or the lines at the banks trying to get, you know, out of trouble, it doesn’t matter. It’s all under control, right?

And finally, the third story tonight, the craziest tomfoolery of them all, the fear-mongering, nonsensical, just-trying-to-sell-you-a-gold-coin poppycock. I said, I don’t even know, 2008–2009, the old hatreds of the past would reemerge.

VIDEO

Glenn: The hatred of the past is going to come back, and you are going to be looking at the Communists and the Nazis coming into their own, and there will be a third leg to this table, and it will be the Muslims, the Islamic extremists. And those, the hatreds of the past, which included the Muslim extremists back in World War I, that’s why we were over in Egypt and everything else in World War I, those three are coming together again, and you’re going to see them rise in power.

Geez, the Muslims, the Nazis and the Communists…rubbish. What a nut, huh? Last night, 15,000 protesters referred to as pinstriped Nazis took to the streets in Germany…Nazis, making a comeback in Germany. Nazi Germany, sounds familiar, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Anyway, maybe while we’re here, maybe we could destabilize Italy as well, and then we could get Germany together with Italy, because when you put those two things together, man, it always works out, because you get like spaghetti and German chocolate cake for everybody.

I mean, who doesn’t like that, except for the millions that usually are dead along the sides of highways because those two got together, but why worry about that? It’s tomfoolery. Just keep listening to the so-called experts. I beg you not to listen to the experts in this country anymore, the fools disguised in tweed jackets or Ascots of the Ivy League campuses, the scholars and the experts and those who have been around in the State Department forever, blahdy, blahdy, blahdy. They couldn’t find their way through an unlocked door at a locksmith shop.

They come on TV, and they lecture you about how everything is fine, and everything is in a box. I have news for you, I believe it was the great philosopher Depeche Mode that said nothing is impossible. Life is outside of the box now, and if you’re inside the box, you’ll suffocate. In the meantime, what do we do? I go back to the car ride last night with my daughter, Hannah.

After daddy downer burst the sweetest bubble on the planet with my actually, honey, low gas prices really kind of suck lecture, she asked me, “Okay, Dad, so okay, let’s get serious now about the next level of how we prepare.” And I went over the usual, you know, off-the-trolley kind of stuff—do you have food storage? Do you have gold? Do you have silver?

And then I said look, here’s the most important thing that I want you to work on, who are you? Where did we come from? Where is our family from? What does our family believe in? What do you truly believe in? Who is your God? Not some distant God, not some God that’s like yeah, I go to church or, you know, I pray to Him once in a while. No, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who is he? What is our history with him? What promises have we made him, and what promises has he made us?

And our history extends to the history of the Jewish people. When the Statue of Liberty was created, the sculptor used two icons from Moses to bring her to life, the rays of light around her head—that’s not a crown; those are rays of light—and that tablets in her hand. What is that? They both come from the moment Moses descends Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments. See the rays of light and see the tablet? It’s the Statue of Liberty. Put a torch in his hand, and that’s it. We are connected.

Now, let me show you the Great Seal of the U.S. We know the Great Seal, right? But Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin actually wanted this to be our seal. That is the pillar of fire, the Pharaoh in the water, Moses up on the edge with the Red Sea parted. Our pilgrims thought that they were completing the journey of the Israelites. Our founders, it was commonplace during the time of our founders to believe this. This is an old book from 1820. It’s called A View of the Hebrews.

This is actually a study of a pastor. I think he was up in Maine or someplace up in New England, and he was studying the language of the Native Americans. In this book, he says…and not really trying to prove anything to anybody, just verifying what everybody thought they knew at the time, he said the Native Americans are the lost tribe of Israel. Whether they are or not, it doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles.

Our heritage is one with the Jewish people, and I don’t think we really even understand it. Tonight begins the Miracle of Lights, the Hanukkah menorah. Do you even know how to light this? Do you even know why to light this? It celebrates a dedicated group of really brave people who led an uprising against an oppressive force, and who, against all odds, win in the end, paving the way for Jewish independence. Does it sound familiar?

It sounds kind of close to actually what our Founding Fathers and our pilgrims did. They left a lasting lesson about faith, a lesson about standing for freedom, a lesson about principles, and I think it’s worth spending a few minutes going over this, because it’s our heritage too. This is an important principle that maybe tonight we can teach our kids.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
