The Truth About Saudi Arabia, 9/11 and U.S. Treasury Bonds

The Context

A bill is being considered in Congress that would allow U.S. courts to hold countries responsible for any role they may have had in 9/11. The Obama administration has lobbied Congress to block the bill's passage due to Saudi Arabia's threats to sell off $750 billion in treasury bills in an attempt to avoid their assets being frozen in the face of litigation.

Truth and Consequences

The truth often comes with unintended consequences. In the case of 9/11, is the truth important enough to brave the storm that will follow?

Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn dissected the intricacies of this delicate balance.

"All those 9/11 documents that we have had person after person who has actually seen them in Congress, in the Senate, they've actually seen the documents, they've seen the real report, they all come to us and say, ‘Saudi Arabia was involved, and people need to know it.' I think we need to know it. But you don't just say that without understanding what that means," Glenn said.

Can America Handle the Truth?

America is in debt as a nation, and debt enslaves you to a master. One of our masters is Saudi Arabia.

"The other side of the Saudi Arabian coin is they're one of our banks. People don't understand the treasury bill. The treasury bill is basically a loan. When we say we're $19 trillion in debt, what we've done is we've gone to countries who act like a bank to us," Glenn explained.

Loans aren't inherently bad, but taking money from a bad source will have bad consequences if things go sideways.

What a T-bill Dump Looks Like

What does it mean to have Saudi Arabia dump treasury bills? Glenn explained what it would look like if nations started selling off our T-bills --- and it's not pretty.

"Now we're so far in debt that nobody knows if they're going to get their money back," Glenn said. "Our oil and our gas companies and our coal companies will be darn near out of business. Many of them already are. We've had enemies now made all around the world. And our debt has more than doubled," Glenn said.

He added sarcastically, "So, who wants to be the president of the United States?"

Common Sense Bottom Line

Declassifying the redacted 9/11 commission report will consequences. If Saudi Arabia follows through with its threat, it could destabilize the American economy.

"The question is not whether or not we should allow Saudi Arabia to be held responsible in our courts. If Saudi Arabia played a role, the American people should know about it," Glenn said.

The real question is are we ready for the consequences?

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
