Did Nostradamus Predict the 2016 Election?

The History Channel aired a fascinating special last night on Nostradamus and his predictions for the 2016 election.

"I missed the last 15 minutes, and so I don't know. He apparently was supposed to say which one was going to win tonight," Glenn said Tuesday on his radio program.

One prediction was that a brutal man would run, one who gives too much attention to women, likes to brawl and will falsely call the election rigged.

"I mean, that's pretty amazing. Pretty amazing," Glenn said.

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these fascinating questions:

• In Jeffy a Nostradamus expert?

• Did Nostradamus predict that someone named Dump would win tonight?

• How did Nostradamus describe the person running against the "brutal" man?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Hey. I was watching the Nostradamus special last night on the History Channel. And my wife came in and she said, "What is this? Do we have to watch this for work?" And I'm like, "No, but it's Nostradamus, and he's made some predictions here about this election." And she's like, "Really?" And I'm like, "You can turn it off if you want." And she did, and I missed the last 15 minutes. And so I don't know. He apparently was supposed to say which one was going to win tonight.

So anybody who watched the Nostradamus special last night, call in. Because I want to know who did he say was going to win. I don't care. I just want to know which one

JEFFY: Not sure what quatrain he wrote it in?

PAT: He said somebody named Dump was going to win. He's always one letter off.

STU: He's always a letter or two off.

GLENN: Donald Dump.

JEFFY: Well, he had to write that way back in that day.

GLENN: I know. I know. Had to.

PAT: Did he?

STU: So wait. Was there any credibility to this as you were --

GLENN: Actually, while I was watching it, what was fascinating to me was he did say -- and they're tying it to this election. And I don't know. You got to read --

JEFFY: They tie everything. I know.

GLENN: I know. But there were specific things that were amazing. One was a brutal man -- a man who spends too much -- too much attention to women or something like that will anger people, will brawl -- likes to brawl, will run, and will -- will falsely call this a rigged election. That's a quote. Falsely call it a rigged election.

STU: And the other side?

GLENN: The other side, he will run against the queen whose papers will be stolen and the names and the places will be removed from them.

STU: Weird.

GLENN: I mean, that's pretty amazing. Pretty amazing.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: All right. I want to tell you what I learned. And I want to hear from you if you watched the Nostradamus thing. 877-727-BECK. But I want to tell you what I learned over the last year that's critical if we're going to move forward and actually move the conservative agenda ahead.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
