Hear This Warning: The Future of the Conservative Movement Is in Jeopardy

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's radio monologue from August 29, 2016.

I want to talk to you --- not about the election. I'm going to ask you to take a longer view of what is happening.

I've been doing my homework for a couple of weeks on one particular aspect of what is going on in the country and around the world, and it is something that we have talked about off and on for the last two years. By the time I'm really diving into this, I expect that you and others will say to me the same thing people said when I started talking about Woodrow Wilson.

I said, "You have to understand Woodrow Wilson and the progressive movement."

And people said to me, "Glenn, 'progressive' movement? I mean, 'liberals' --- it's the same thing!"

No, it's not.

"You need to understand the roots of progressivism," I said.

Nobody believed me for a long time, and now progressives are known as progressives, and this audience, at least, knows the roots of progressivism --- and that is wildly important.

But there's something that I think is as important as the caliphate was back then. If you remember, no one knew what a caliphate was, and everyone said that was fantasyland and dismissed it.

I will tell you that I am in the midst of doing research, and I will bring all of it together in the next month, I hope. I feel exactly the way I did about the coming caliphate, which is now a reality. I feel as strongly about this as I did in 2006 and 2007 about the coming market crash, which happened. I feel as strongly about this as I did about telling you about progressivism and the roots of it --- and I need you to hear this warning.

I'm going to introduce you to some people that you are going to say make no difference, but I am telling you, it is the future of the conservative movement if you don't know who these people are. Everyone will say, "They're unrelated. It doesn't matter." And I am warning you now: This is the direction of the country.

I'm going to teach you a lot about the history that I am learning right now and show you why what's happening is simply a repeat of the past.

Where are we right now?

We are in a place --- because of 9/11 and because the system has been corrupt for a very, very long time --- 9/11, we thought we were going to get into a war and we were going to win the war and then come home, right? We thought it would be pretty easy. And we'd win the war and we would come home and we would teach everyone a lesson. But that war now has gone on for 15 years.

We were kind of betrayed and began to ask, "what the hell is going on with the war?" This started back in 2003 and 2004, when we realized we're not fighting this thing to win.

What is happening?

We had already been weakened by political correctness. And then we started to question our parties, we started questioning our government. Then we started questioning our banks. Then we started questioning our justice system and our police officers, to the point where we have nothing left that we believe in.

People are hungry. They are frightened. They are unable to afford life. They don't feel like anybody is listening to them. They don't feel in control. They don't feel like they belong to anything. Most importantly, no one feels like anything makes sense anymore.

Would you agree with those statements so far?

Betrayal and lies in the media.

On top of that, we feel the media has betrayed us and the media is not telling us the truth. Now the media is starting to fractionalize even more. And now the right media is split in half, and both sides are saying, "We're telling you the truth."

Meanwhile, while that war is going on, the people, again, feel like they're being lied to. The people who were their friends. Many think that I have changed and somehow or another I have betrayed the movement. Other people who are in this audience think that others like Matt Drudge or Breitbart have changed and have betrayed the audience.

Basically, everyone in America feels that they have been lied to by someone who they recently trusted, after they lost faith in everything else. They feel like they've been lied to and betrayed by people who were only saying what they said for their own gain and their own power.

We don't believe in our own friends anymore. Even our families are breaking down. The traditional idea of marriage and what a family is, the traditional idea of what a man or woman even is has broken down. Would you agree with that?

Stay alert.

Many people are now in an apathetic state to where they have just checked out and said, "The world doesn't matter, nor do I. And so I'm not paying attention."

Then on top of it, we have forces in the country that are mocking absolutely everything, and there is anger and rage at the system.

We have entered the world of the destruction of the politician. Now the destruction of the parties. The destruction of both parties and the politicians. And now we are entering the destruction of the entire system.

Looking ahead.

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to lay out for you why we're repeating history --- the history leading up to World War I, which in turn, leads to World War II. I ask that you listen and share this with your friends and family.

It's not about politics. It's about the future of America and the world.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
