Ask yourself these four questions to reveal your level of preparedness

Think for a moment about the last time you experienced an emergency situation such as a winter storm or a power outage. How prepared were you?

Now consider a bigger problem such as a large-scale food shortage or water contamination incident. What if a disaster forced you to leave your home for days or even weeks? How well would you survive such situations?

Just the thought can be overwhelming. On his TV show tonight --- chalkboard alert --- Glenn will tackle these questions and lay out practical action plans you can take with your family. Preparedness experts Justin Wheeler and Daniel Dean will join Glenn to share tips and advice on how to take your level of preparedness up a notch. It begins with asking yourself the following four questions:

1. How would a friend describe my level of preparedness?

2. What supplies do I have on hand?

3. What steps have I taken?

4. What scenarios am I ready for?

Find out your level of preparedness by matching your answers to the ones below.



How a Friend Would Describe Me

• No thought or effort put toward preparedness. Every emergency situation is a potential disaster.

Supplies I Have on Hand

• Less than one week of food in my house.

• No self defense plan or equipment.

• No water stored or way to purify it.

• No extra medicines/prescriptions.

• No grid-independent energy/heat capacity.

Example of Supplies at This Level

• Condiments in the fridge, Pop-Tarts in the cabinet.

Steps I Have Taken

• None. I see articles online and government alerts about being prepared for emergencies, but haven't put any energy toward it yet.

Scenarios I’m Ready For

• situation, such as power outage for one day or less due to rainstorm.

***In trouble after 1 day of emergency***



How a Friend Would Describe Me

• You have awareness that one should have some stuff on hand for emergencies, and some effort put toward that. Note: This is how most Americans actually live their lives.

Supplies I Have on Hand

• About two weeks worth of food and water (or way to purify water), somewhat informally, mostly extra canned goods.

• Basic first aid and OTC medicines on hand because you buy value-sized to make sure you always have a little extra.

Example of Supplies at This Level

• Flashlight and batteries.

• Non-perishable foods: canned goods, cereal, pasta/rice, etc.

• "Bathroom" first aid items (Band-Aids, Ibuprophen, thermometer, Vasoline, etc).

• Bottled water, a gallon of bleach.

Steps I Have Taken

• Physical copies of key documents: birth certificates, marriage license, passports, mortgage, car title/registration, etc.

• I've talked to the adults/older children in my household about "what we'd do if" scenarios, such as a fire, flood, power outage, etc.

Scenarios I’m Ready For

• Small regional issue, minor disruption of services, such as power out for three+ days due to earthquake, ice storm, etc.

***In trouble after a few days of emergency or if forced to leave home***



How a Friend Would Describe Me

• You're a "Boy Scout." You probably wear a belt even if you have suspenders on. You feel consciously responsible for being prepared. Regular, organized effort put toward being prepared physically, if not mentally and spiritually. You’re someone friends/family think of as "prepared" and would probably turn to in an emergency.

Supplies I Have on Hand

• At least one month of food and water stored (or way to purify water).

• Prescriptions on hand sufficient for at least a month.

• Capacity to generate off-grid heat/power on site (e.g. generator, basic solar).

• An "emergency kit" on hand so you can grab it and leave home if necessary.

• Something on hand you can use for self defense, could be a firearm, could be a baseball bat.

Example of Supplies at This Level

• Non-perishable foods specifically stored for emergencies, sufficient for two meals per day per person: rice, beans, dry pasta, canned goods, oats, salt, etc.

• Actual portable first-aid kit sufficient for the household/family.

• Candles or lantern, matches.

• Sleeping bags and extra blankets.

• Water stored and water purification supplies.

Steps I Have Taken

• A plan. My household has a plan in place that covers a few specific scenarios, such as what we'll all do in an ice storm/blizzard or if there is a terror attack in our area. The people in my household know what to do and whom to contact if there is an emergency.

Scenarios I’m Ready For

• Regional issue including significant disruption of basic services, such as a power outage of up to 1 month.

***In trouble after 1 month of emergency or if forced to leave home for longer than a couple of days***



How a Friend Would Describe Me

• You've made prepping a "way of life" to an extent and are ready for anything. It's more than a personal thing; this is a group activity now, within your family circle, and perhaps with friends and neighbors.

Supplies I Have on Hand

• A one-year supply of food/water or more, and the capacity/plan to grow more in a garden.

• Barter items that will be useful in an economic collapse, such as silver/gold, ammunition, building hardware, clothing.

• Major first aid supplies, including antibiotics, basic surgical equipment, etc.

• The capacity to generate energy, heat and potable water off-grid, including fuel as necessary.

• Both handguns and rifles/shotguns on hand, enough ammo that you’re worried about being on an ATF watch list.

Example of Supplies at This Level

• Significant food storage, including a scheduled calories/day diet for all household members: dehydrated and bulk dried foods (MyPatriotSupply).

• Major first-aid/trauma and emergency dental kit plus potassium iodate tablets sufficient for 10-15 days.

• A handgun and rifle for all willing adult members of the household, 1000 rounds of ammunition per weapon.

• Propane or other cooking and heating fuel safely stored.

• Gold and silver coins, rounds or bars .

Steps I Have Taken

• Serious training both for myself as well as other household members, including survival/medical skills, farming, sewing skills that will be necessary during a prolonged breakdown of services and government control.

• I have a relocation plan that involves my own family and potentially others, including provisions I can use both locally and wherever my retreat location is.

Scenarios I’m Ready For

• A major national emergency, such as a complete economic collapse, a nuclear/biological war or pandemic, or an EMP taking out the US Power grid

***In trouble if there isn't some semblance of a stable recovery and government after a full year***

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Here's how the conversation went:

Teacher Speaks Out | Five OUTRAGEOUS "Critical Race Theory" Lessons Unions Want to Teach your Kids

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
