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.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
