These Are the Three Things That Lead to Revolution

Ineffective governments, economic meltdowns, civil unrest, and endless wars have plagued nations for centuries creating the perfect storm for all out revolution. Now, with North Korea knocking at our door, the national debt at $19 trillion and rising, an already weakened economy, and civil unrest in the streets; America is witnessing difficult times that haven’t been seen since perhaps the 1960s.

Glenn called these factors ‘pressure points’ and questioned how long nations can endure them before war and total chaos erupts.

“How many pressure points can a nation endure?” Glenn asserted on radio Wednesday.

“If you study revolution, there are always three things that are present in every single one: economic instability, war, and civil unrest.”

While no one factor can be solely responsible for the French Revolution, years of feudalism, taxation without representation, abuse of the disenfranchised, and a failure to manage the French treasury led to the French storming the Bastille in 1789.

“The pressure points are being pushed and we have tough times ahead,” Glenn added.

GLENN: If you study revolution, there are always three things that are present in every single one: economic instability, war, and civil unrest.

We talked about it for a long time. Top down, bottom up, and inside out. You are caught in the middle of the turning of everything inside out, and you're standing there in chaos. And pretty soon, the bottom cries out for anybody to listen, anyone. Just make it all stop.

I don't care what it takes.

After getting bogged down in multiple foreign wars, economic meltdown was inevitable. The ineffective increasingly corrupt government was powerless to stop it. In fact, it actually appeared to many that they wanted it to happen. Spending, then borrowing, spending, then borrowing. And in three years, the national debt doubled. Was it a surprise that the academics and other members of the middle class began inciting the poor and the disenfranchised and said, "We need violence?"

What I described might sound familiar, might sound like it's today. But it's actually what led to the French storming the Bastille in 1789.

How many pressure points can a nation endure?

In America, we've been bogged down in foreign wars since the turn of the 21st century. Now North Korea knocking at our door. Our national debt has nearly quadrupled from the year 2000 until today. First Harvey, now Irma. An already weakened economy. And civil unrest in the streets. What people are now preaching for and advocating with DACA. We are approaching difficult times, times that we haven't seen since perhaps the 1960s. People like Frances Fox Piven were advocating for the same kind of violence in 2004. The Occupy movement just happened a few years after that, and it didn't quite make it.

Fast forward a few years and we have Antifa and the Nazis on the street, all trying to light us on fire. The pressure points are being pushed, and we have tough times ahead.

Beware of those inciting violence and advocating hate. Chaos is coming. But so is tomorrow.

This too shall pass, is the promise, not this too shall stay.

Honestly, I got up this morning and I thought, "The only reason to get out of bed is because we have each other." we know what really has meaning. And we have tomorrow. And tomorrow always promises a new and brighter horizon.

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
