Prepare now: Greece crisis just the beginning

For nearly five years, Glenn has been warning the world to pay attention to Greece. The economic crisis, which now seems ready to boil over, could set off a chain of dominos bringing down the European Union, collapsing global markets, and even destroy the dollar. With Greek banks closed and citizens lining up at ATMs, that prediction seems closer to reality than ever. Will people pay attention? Glenn issued a dire warning on radio this morning - will it be ignored?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

GLENN: I began to tell you while I was at Fox that Greece or Spain would be the catalyst that could bring down the entire European Union. And it could be the first domino that ended in the collapse of the global markets and possibly the end of the dollar. I was mocked and ridiculed. That's crazy talk. This is when I was also saying that the Nazis and the communists would rear their ugly heads in Greece yet again. And all three of those things now are happening.

Here it is. People are standing in line today. They're not able to get into the banks because they fear there would be a run on the banks. So the banks have closed now for ten days. Something that I said will happen here. Mark my words. It will happen here.

People went out this weekend because they didn't take the warning seriously. They went out this weekend and tried to get money from the ATMs and they were only allowed to take out $67. You don't have any cash on hand. You can't go to an ATM. How long -- do you last ten days with $67 in cash?

PAT: No. No.

GLENN: You fill your car up once. That's it.

STU: Well, you can take up to $67 per day. So, I mean, then you're really rolling.

PAT: Then you're set. Then you're set. The ATMs are empty.

STU: Many of them are. I was listening to some report this morning, if you happen to be traveling to Greece this week, you may want to bring a little bit of extra cash because the ATMs should work for foreign banks. But you may want to bring -- I'm not even going right now. If I have a trip planned to Greece, I'm not going. Are you?

GLENN: No, you!

Yeah, I would. I would like to go to Greece right now.

PAT: You would go to Greece right now?

STU: Good. Bye. Get on a plane.

GLENN: Because what's happening there is going to be historic. And it's coming --

STU: Yes! It's going to be historic. A bunch of people will be throwing Molotov cocktails at you. That is history, I suppose.

PAT: They were standing in line just to get that $67 over the weekend. They were standing in line for four hours.

GLENN: So here's the thing that was really killing me. Reading what is happening, watching what is happening, and then to recognize that most Americans are so wildly out of touch with what's happening over there in the rest of the world, they have no idea what it means, what it is, how it's going to affect them. Honestly, it's like we're living in the turn of the century Galveston, Texas. Without any weather radar or anything else, showing us the size of the storm that's coming, everybody is just out on the beach saying it's great. Thousands died in that hurricane in Texas in the early 1900s.

Now, back in the 1900s, it wasn't anybody's fault. There was no warning system. But there is today and people are still out on the beach. We ignore it. We're too busy to mind about what Greece is happening -- what, I don't -- and we're arrogant. We believe that nothing could ever harm us.

In Greece, the human reaction, the hoarding of food, the standing in line, the limited amount of money that you can take out of the ATMs, that's all tangible evidence of the sort of thing I've been asking you to prepare for. Please hear me. This is coming here. It could be here in a month.

It could be here in five years. But it is coming here. Can I ask when has it ever been crazy to ask people to prepare?

We have no one to blame, but ourselves as this thing melts down. We will tear each other apart if there's a vacuum of leadership in this country. And when I talk about a leadership, I mean you. I mean locally. I beg of you, please, I beg of you, prepare. And if nothing happens in the next five years, then mock me. Stand in line. I can't wait to be wrong.

But the direction of the country seems to continue to go my direction. Our grandparents survived the Great Depression. What's coming is worse than the Great Depression. But people will say, well, we had this before. It was the Great Depression. It's worse than the Great Depression. And how did our grandparents survive? Our grandparents survived because the supply chain was local.

We made stuff in our local communities. We grew food. Our parents and our grandparents, many of them had farms. They knew how to plant a garden. All I know about gardens is you plant sometime when the snow is not there. That's all I know.

They also had each other. And they had God.

We barely have either of those things. We're telling -- we're tearing each other apart. We have hard hearts. Moral relativism. And massive debt. They didn't have debt. Please, I'm begging -- I'm begging you -- and I'm saying this to my wife too. Please go to the bank today and have -- get some cash and have some cash on hand.

Please have cash on hand. Please spread your financial risk out. Know what is important to you. Teach your children to be self-sufficient. Find a house of worship and do it today. And really actually connect with the people there and with the truths that are taught. Do it today.

Don't panic. We have more time than we think. But less time than we hope. We must love one another. We must serve one another. We must ask for forgiveness on the things that we have done wrong. We must forgive ourselves. We must forgive others. We must humble ourselves or I am telling you now, it will be done for us.

I was so saddened by the stuff I was reading online about the Supreme Court rulings this weekend. The anger and the vitriol, really on both sides of the Supreme Court ruling, was overwhelming. Wounds that we have been picking at are now wide open. Love wins?

Love wins? Besides Charleston, South Carolina, when have you seen love win?

What happened in the Supreme Court wasn't love. You might have said that it is about love. But not really. It's not love. It's about who you have sex with.

The winners are gloating. Stomping on the throats of their perceived opponents. Believers are reacting with fear and panic and anger.

I want you to hear me carefully: I state to you today a few truths. Here's one of them: I and no one in this audience, no one within the sound of my voice -- and I don't believe anyone on the face of the earth is another man's judge. Morally, I am no man's judge.

Two: There is an absolute right and wrong. It is time-tested.

Everything we're doing now is a brand-new idea! It's never been tested before. There are things that are true, that are time-tested.

I believe, three, in God. There is a Creator. And we are endowed by that Creator with certain unalienable rights. No man can change those rights. No man can destroy them or take them away.

And four: I will not force you to believe any of those things. I will not force you, nor do I care to try to force you to live to any of the tenets of my faith. Please, don't try to force me or others to believe in the doctrines that you hold.

We need each other. The world is changing. It's not just America. Get outside of America and open your eyes. We have to have all of us, each other, to hold onto, or we won't make it through the storm. We need gay, straight, religious, atheist, black, white, Hispanic, short, tall, fat, skinny -- we need everybody!

We must stop listening to the 5 percent of radicals on both sides. 90 percent of this country wants to get along. 90 percent of this country can live with one another. It's the 5 percent or so on each side that's killing us.

I want you to know that I am a -- a horribly flawed man. We all are. We're all the same. I struggle with the same stuff that you struggle with every single day.

But the seasons have changed. And we must take this -- this change of seasons and our time in space much more seriously than we did even last week. I'm begging you, please, please, hear the words of my mouth. Please hear the words of my mouth. Times have changed. We are not even in the same place that we were last week.

I am trying to change as a man. I suppose if you read my musings on Facebook, maybe you have noticed a change in me over the last year or two. But I'm working desperately to change. I am trying everything I can to change and to be a better man. It's not fast enough. But I'm trying my best.

Please let us find a way to each other. Let us reach out. Let's put our differences aside. Can we ground ourselves in principles and not personal or national interests?

The most truthful phrase that I've read in quite some time -- it's been everywhere in the last 72 hours. And it's absolutely true.

No matter where you stand, we must all recognize the truth in the phrase "love wins." But if I may humbly point out that I don't believe that has anything to do with who you sleep with.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
