Four Simultaneous Downturns Could Trigger the Next Economic Meltdown

Glenn sat down with world renowned economist Harry Dent on Wednesday to discuss signs of an impending economic crash that could drive America into the next Great Depression.

Known for successfully predicting economic trends over the past 30 years --- including the housing bubble of the last decade --- Dent's latest prediction was startling to say the least.

"The DOW is going to crash to a degree we haven’t seen since the Great Depression," Dent said.

He went on to describe how demographic cycles are largely responsible for long-term changes in the economy, although governments can artificially delay certain consequences temporarily.

Using what he referred to as the Hierarchy of Macroeconomic Cycles, Dent pointed out four key cycles which dictate the ups and downs of economies in developed countries.

1. The 39-year Generational Spending Wave.

2. The 36-year Geopolitical Cycle.

3. The 45-year Innovation Cycle (NEW).

4. The 8-13-year Boom/Bust Cycle (average 10 years).

Dent told Glenn the most critical piece of information was that all four cycles have entered their downward phase, which will last at least until late 2019, he said.

"As we move through the latest iteration of this phenomenon, we can expect another major catastrophe to slam into us before any one of these cycles turns the corner and begin to head back up," Dent said.

But not everything is "doom and gloom." The good news with all four cycles pointing down together now is that they all head up together as well, Dent explained.

"It's during such 'up' times that we see the markets and economy boom," Dent said.

Glenn asked Dent flat-out whether the next economic bubble-burst will be deeper or longer than the Great Depression. Watch Dent's response in the clip below.

Dent reiterated his belief that bubbles always burst. It's just what they do, he explained.

So when is the next economic bubble going to burst?

"I don't know exactly when it's going to happen, but the signs I'll talk about --- it looks like it's getting ready," Dent said. "I think this summer, you're likely to see some fireworks."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
