Great Conservative Minds and the 100-Year Plan

Barack Obama promised in 2008 to fundamentally transform the United States --- and he has. However, it didn't happen overnight. The foundation for his transformation was created one hundred years ago by early 20th century progressives. And in the 1980s, the Tides Foundation finished the job, gathering together activists who figured out how to change America from the inside out.

With his new book Liars coming out late summer, Glenn has been researching Woodrow Wilson and other progressives from this era.

"I'm looking at these guys, and I'm seeing them in a totally different light now. I'm really seeing the guys in the 1880s and the early 20th century as the new Founders. And last night, I wrote in my diary just that, "Where are these guys? Where are the thinkers now?" I mean, these were the biggest thinkers of the late 1800s and early 20th century. They were the college professors. They were the titans of philosophical thought at the time. They were the titans of governmental thought. Where are those guys? They put together a plan. And they knew where they were headed," Glenn said.

While progressives perfectly executed their 100-year plan, conservatives only seem to focus on the next four to eight years.

"We don't seem to have the patience that progressives do," Co-host Pat Gray said.

So what should conservatives do?

"You know, I've been saying this for years. And, you know, I'm not the guy to lead this, but I don't think there's anybody else stepping to the plate," Glenn said. "We have to get with the people who are the greatest thinkers in conservative Libertarian minds today. Get the people of faith, but not the old-line faith, not progressives, not the people who would vote for Donald Trump or who would endorse him today. The people who understand liberty. Get the people of faith. Get the Libertarians that understand that it's not all about weed; it's about the principles of freedom."

Glenn and his co-hosts tossed out a few names that would fit the bill, like Mary Matalin, Mark Levin, Robbie George, Erick Erickson, George Will and Jonah Goldberg.

"Put them together in a room and say, "Okay, guys, we need a 100-year plan," Glenn said. "What are we striving for in the next two years, four years, 10 years, 20 years, 50 years? Where are we going to be?"

A think tank of the best conservative minds would be a good place to begin turning the country around and return to our Founding Principles. Only liberty-loving, constitutional conservatives who've not sold their soul to an election or a party need apply.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
