Glenn's Predictions That Have Come True From 1999 to 2010

Glenn warned for years that if things kept going the way they were going, we'd be in for a repeat of 1968. Nobody in the media seemed to agree.

That's why it's surprising to see headlines now proclaiming "This Could Be the Summer of 1968" --- everywhere!

During his radio show Thursday, Glenn pulled out a chalkboard to outline some of his past warnings that were mocked by the media at first, only to ultimately come to pass.

"We've been wrong on a lot of things, but there's been a clear pattern," Glenn said. "As you start to put these things together, you can see that we have --- as a group, you have --- because you've taken the beatings for these because everybody mocked you at home. But we have seen over the horizon, and I want to fill you with the hope that what's over the horizon is tough, but good."

Watch the segment from The Glenn Beck Program below.

1999: NYC --- Osama bin Ladin

So let's start with 1999, Osama bin Laden. I was on the air on WABC in 1999. And in 1999, I said, "Are you ready to fight terror? It's a completely different world. Osama bin Laden -- there will be blood, bodies, and buildings in the street."

2003: Downfall of the GOP

Okay. The next one, would you say it was the downfall of the G.O.P.? Because I started saying that pretty early.

PAT: Yeah. In 2004, maybe.

GLENN: '3, '4. Something isn't right.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I starred telling people -- I started talking to them on the air. If anybody is a long-term listener, they remember that I would talk on the air and say to everybody in Washington, "Do you realize what's happening? Do you realize that you're disenfranchising people?"

Then what?

2004: Economy --- Housing Crisis

STU: I mean, you certainly were warning about the economy collapsing pretty early.

GLENN: That was '04. Because I remember I was saying during the election of Bush. That was the housing bubble and the banking crisis. Because I was talking about how, don't take out these loans.

2006: Iran --- End Times Theocracy

STU: I mean, that was -- that was a lot of that -- that period was economy and radical Islam, were the two things that you were talking about a lot during that period of time.

GLENN: Yeah, that was the rise of Iran.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: So maybe you should put that: The rise of -- what do you call it? End-of-times Iran.

JEFFY: The head of the state.

PAT: And the Mahdi.

GLENN: Yeah. The Mahdi. The Twelfth Imam.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: So end-times Iran or Islam.

STU: That doesn't mean you were predicting the end of times though. It looks -- the way I wrote that looks like you predicted the end of times and also you predicted Iran.

GLENN: No, but I was the only one -- remember how everybody said that we were crazy when I said, "Wait. We've got to start talking about the Mahdi. We have to start talking about the Twelfth Imam."

STU: Right. It's their prediction.

GLENN: These guys believe that they're in the end of times.

STU: I'll put "the end."

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Now it looks like Iran is going to make the end of times -- eh, forget it.

2008: Europe --- Hatreds of the '30s

STU: You had the rise of these sort of crazy groups in Europe.

GLENN: Greece.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: So I would say --

PAT: Anti-Semitism would come back.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Let's say -- because I remember using the phrase a lot, "the hatreds of the '30s."

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So the Nazis, the anti-Semitism. And that was specifically in Europe.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I think that's happened.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: The hatreds of the past. Europe is on the verge of complete collapse.

STU: The Iran one is still bothering me.

2008: Unmasking the Socialists

GLENN: How about the unmasking of the Marxists?

STU: Yeah, that was probably around 2008 too. That was --

GLENN: The Marxists. That came after, remember, the -- we're all socialist now. And I said, "There will come a time when they will just take off the mask and say, 'Yeah, it doesn't work.'"

STU: Right. I mean, and for those people who say that hasn't happened, you'll notice the guy who is in close second place in one of the primaries --

PAT: Bernie Sanders.

STU: -- is an admitted socialist.

2008: Bubba Effect

GLENN: I would say 2008. But I think it was 2006 when I talked about the Bubba Effect.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: But you can say 2008. And that -- that's fully here. And that was not a prediction. That was actually talking to the Special Forces in America. And that's their prediction, that the Bubba Effect would happen.

STU: I can't remember when I've actually written this much. This is so weird writing. I'm so used to typing; I don't know how to write anymore.

2010: The Caliphate

PAT: The caliphate. Of course.

STU: Got you.

GLENN: That's 2010. Yep.

2010: The Restoring Series

GLENN: I would do in 2010 or 2009, I would do honor, courage, love. The Restoring series. Because that's the key.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And later in the program, I want to explain that. Because that's really important.

STU: When was that though? That was 2009.

PAT: We did that in 2010.

GLENN: '10?

STU: '10. Yeah, Restoring Honor was 2010. Right? Or 2009.

PAT: Yep. 2010.

GLENN: 2010.

STU: Well, probably then started in 2009.

2010: The Pendulum

GLENN: I would go for the pendulum -- when did we do the pendulum show? And I said, "The pendulum is going to swing back." That was probably 2010.

Remember when I had the pendulum and I said --

STU: We'll have to get more in a minute.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: -- but it's going to swing back and --

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: -- and then there would be the rise of the right.

We're doing this for a reason. I want you to see how these all tie together and what the answer is, and we're going to stand alone if we have to. We're going to stand alone.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.

A judge has banned Texas father Jeff Younger from speaking about his son, James, who was taken from him by our courts after he refused to call his son a girl. But Jeff said he'd rather go to jail than comply: "I'll appear in handcuffs ... but I'm not taking this tyranny."

Jeff joined Glenn Beck on "Targets of Tyranny" to tell James' story and explain the biggest lessons he's learned while battling our legal system.

"This interview is illegal in the state of Texas," Jeff told Glenn. "I was banned from publishing any blog posts, social media post, publishing a newspaper article, doing any writing at all about my situation. I was also permanently banned from doing interviews, doing podcasts, appearing on television interviews, and these are all specifically laid out," he explained.

"I was also banned from speaking on three political topics. I'm not allowed to talk about anything about transgender issues, gender expansiveness, or whether my son is a boy or a girl. And I have told this judge — and I tell this judge every time I do an interview — I will never follow your illegal and unconstitutional order. I have contempt for her as a judge issuing the order. I have maximum contempt for the tyrannical language of the order, and I will never follow the order," Jeff continued.

"I'm guilty of maximum criminal contempt in the 301st District Court of the state of Texas, and [the judge] is obligated to put me in jail for the maximum sentence, which is 180 days in the jail in Dallas County. Four days later, I'll be in the jail library with the writ of habeas corpus that I've already prepared. We will go to the 5th District, and we will see who's right. I'll appear in handcuffs, her in the judge's robe, but I'm not taking this tyranny. And I'm not going to stop speaking out about my son."
