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.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
