If North Korea Makes an Insane Move, Our Lives Could Change Within Minutes

Last week, The U.N Security Council unanimously voted on new sanctions against North Korea after the country tested intercontinental ballistic missiles. Glenn described these sanctions as “some of the toughest sanctions he’s ever seen.” These include North Korea being unable to sell raw materials, coal, energy products, iron, raw minerals and sea food products --- all of which could cost up to $1 billion within the first month.

Kim Jong Un is now blaming these sanctions on the American people and government, promising “thousand fold revenge” against the United States.

What does this mean?

“I don’t know,” Glenn admitted.

We are technically still at war with North Korea, and these sanctions could be the straw that turns the war from cold to active.

“Our lives could change in any 18-minute period . . . and the world would change forever because of this,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Hey, Chicago, Los Angeles, possibly even Dallas. I doubt we're on the list, though. You can be vaporized any time from North Korea, but no big deal. North Korea, I have no idea what their response is going to be. But he cannot -- Kim Jong-un cannot back down. He is blaming the sanctions on the American people and the American government. You know, we are still technically at war with North Korea. We have an armistice, not peace talks. Not a treaty. We have an armistice. So the world is still going on, it's just a Cold War. Now that they can vaporize an American city, the United Nations got together and the security council this weekend voted 5-0 for some of the toughest sanctions I've ever seen. They can't sell any of their raw materials, they can't sell coal, they can't sell any energy products, they can't sell iron, they can't sell raw minerals or any of their seafood products. That's a lot. And will cost I think a billion -- is it a billion dollars just in the first month?

PAT: That's going to shut down every restaurant in America too. Not being able to buy North Korean seafood.

GLENN: I don't think they're --

PAT: North Korean crab on the menu, I have to tell you.

JEFFY: Makes me run out and want to buy another too.

GLENN: So the people are already starving, he's going to blame it on America.

JEFFY: They've threatened us thousands fold revenge.

GLENN: Yes. So what does that mean? I don't know. But if it is in the -- anywhere from the book of insanity, our lives could change in any 18-minute period. And the world would change forever because of this.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
