How Do Average Joes Protect Their Assets in a Financial Crash?

In today's financial market, where's the best place for your money? Should you buy a house? What about investing in the stock market?

Danielle DiMartino Booth, former insider at the Federal Resserve and author of the book Fed Up: An Insider's Take on Why the Federal Reserve is Bad for America, joined Glenn in studio to help navigate the tricky waters of protecting your assets.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

PAT: So, Danielle, how does the average American prepare for something like that? How do we --

DANIELLE: I would rather be early than wrong. I would rather have my powder be dry.

GLENN: Would you buy a house today?

DANIELLE: It really would depend at what level. I bring the private equity kingpins back. They've been allowed to run rampant through our neighbors in America, buy up all of these foreclosures, and they've crowded out your natural first time home buyer. So home prices have been run right back up.

GLENN: In the evening place like Texas where it's nothing but growth, growth, growth, growth for Texas.

DANIELLE: Well, we've grown, grown, grown, grown, that's true. But now our residential real estate prices have played a nice little game of catch up.

PAT: Would you take your money out of the bank while you still can?

DANIELLE: I don't think we're there.

GLENN: We're headed on that.

PAT: I would take my money out of the casino. Yes.

GLENN: Meaning the stock market.

DANIELLE: Yes.

PAT: Uh-huh.

DANIELLE: And the bond market. People do not understand how overvalued stocks and bonds are much more overvalued.

GLENN: Where do you put it? Just in a bank?

DANIELLE: You keep talking about safes. But there are very decent places that you can put your cash and get a little bit of return and try to hang steady with inflation.

GLENN: Is there anything to say for -- like I do banking with a local bank who doesn't sell my mortgage, they hold it, you know. I went to the local mom and pop.

DANIELLE: A traditional bank.

GLENN: Correct. Or what kind of loans do you make? And they're very, very rigid. Do you look at that? Or a credit union as a place that you can trust more than -- like Citi or any of these bigger groups?

DANIELLE: I think the world as we know it will end if one of these gigantic banks go away. Do you really see one of these lobbyists standing still for that?

GLENN: No.

DANIELLE: I'm just asking.

[Laughter]

GLENN: Yeah, no, I don't. So one more thought.

It used to be that people like Warren Buffett were the heroes. And people like Warren Buffett, he -- I mean, he's still living in the same house. He's still married to the same woman. He's still, you know -- yes, he has a Boeing business jet, but he is -- he could easily be --

PAT: Drives an old truck, all of those kinds of things, supposedly.

GLENN: He could be mistaken for a middle class guy, if you didn't know it was Warren Buffett. Same guy with Walton.

PAT: Sam Walton.

GLENN: That's a different era. Now, everyone wants to live like the Kardashians.

DANIELLE: Flash is the new black. Glenn, you have to flaunt it. Wear it.

GLENN: So everybody is up there and everybody think so they deserve that lifestyle.

DANIELLE: That's what being entitled is all about.

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.

Will vaccinated Americans still need mask regulations by Memorial Day?

With Texas' recent elimination of state-mandated COVID regulations, Major League Baseball was back full swing in the Lone Star State; the Texas Rangers just held the first full-capacity sporting event since the start of the pandemic. In this clip, Stu details the non-strict 'mask police' that were at the game, and Pat makes an interesting prediction: could mask regulations for vaccinated Americans actually be phased out by Memorial Day?

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
