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.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.
