Is financial catastrophe coming for the economy?

There's a lot of reasons for you to be concerned about the global economy this week. Greece owes a huge payment on their debt and everyone knows they won't be able to pay. A default could trigger a larger financial collapse worldwide, but no one seems to be worried. But will people start paying attention if every single bank account over a certain dollar amount gets a 50% haircut? Glenn spoke with an informant with inside information of what's going on behind-the-scenes, and what he told Glenn should scare everyone.

Glenn said he had a conversation with Tania a few weeks ago, and during their talk he suggested taking all of their money out of the bank because a Cyprus-esque haircut could be coming.

"I said, there's going to come a time where they'll just give everybody a haircut. You have money in the bank, they'll just give you a haircut. And not let you take money out of the bank," Glenn said. " Everybody gets 10 percent to 50 percent. Everybody just loses ten to 50 percent of whatever you have in savings. Whatever you have in the bank. Then they say on top of that, and, by the way, you can no longer withdraw anything more than $5,000, you know, per account. Per month."

Glenn said that he called his "Deep Throat", the insider who told him about TARP the Sunday before it was announced. While in the past he has been able to provide intel on what might be coming, recent events have him completely lost.

"This is the guy who called me the day before TARP was made public. He called me on a Sunday night crying. And he said, I was just in the treasury meeting, and he said, I just got out. They're going to announce something tomorrow. And he said, it's bad. But he convinced me that it had to be done. He said, because we're lights out. If this doesn't happen, we're lights out, he said. And I just walked home in Manhattan. From lower Manhattan to mid-Manhattan. And he said, I was crying all the way because I was looking at the drivers of the car and the people in the cabs and everything else, and he said, they have no idea what's coming our way. Nobody has any idea what's coming," Glenn said. "So he's been talking to me for a long time about what's coming."

"So I'm talking to him and I said, so, tell me how do we get out of this? How do we unravel this situation? And for the very first time he said, I have no idea. I have absolutely no idea. The world is never done this. I've never seen anything like it. He said, what's really disturbing is, everybody on the planet is doing this now. All of the central banks are doing this now. He said, at some point there is a tipping point. And the US dollar is just lights out," Glenn continued.

Stu brought up the debt crisis in Greece and how no one seems concerned that Greece has no money to pay it off.

"We talked about the situation going on in Greece this morning," Stu said. "The markets aren't really reacting to it negatively. They have this giant payment they have to make, and they can't make it. Everybody knows they can't make it. They just assume there will be a last-second deal as there's been the last few times they couldn't make this payment. There's a chance that they can't make this payment and the deal is not struck. Then it's like financial catastrophe for the world. And no one is really even paying attention to it. We've come to the point now where financial catastrophes are like the 12th story in the newscast."

Glenn's "Deep Throat" insists that the IMF and other global financial institutions will not be able to just bail everyone out. In fact, the informant has no idea what will happen, something Glenn has never heard him say before.

Glenn said, "So remember the guy we had on The End of the Dollar, and he said, what will happen is the IMF, or the World Bank will bail everybody out. My Deep Throat guy said, no, not possible. He said, that's just not possible. He said, they don't have the money to do it. He said, so we give them money to do it. So that's a circular thing. He said, that's not even possible. It doesn't even make sense to me. And I said, so where -- how do you -- and he said, I don't know. I don't know. That's significant. That's really truly significant. And like Pat said, so what happens?"

One thing you can't do, apparently, is take your money out of the bank. The Dennis Hastert scandal shined new light on regulations that prevent people from removing more than $10,000 out of their accounts.

"Are we even in America? You want your money, they're not going to give it to you," Glenn said. "Again, that brings us back to, am I the suspect here? Is the average American who is just living their life, are we the suspect? If you have something on me, okay, then get a warrant and show it. But if it's just I'm removing my money from a private institution because I want to go blow it all in Vegas or I just want to put it under my bed. As long as I'm not doing anything illegal with it, it's none of your business what I'm doing."

Glenn predicted that if things don't change, it will be illegal to carry large sums of cash.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
