Three Things You Need to Know - November 3, 2017

Sorry Media, Shouting "Allahu Akbar" Is Significant.

God is great.

That’s all that “Allah Akbar” means.

It’s actually a rather nice sentiment. I tend to agree, God is great!

It’s a phrase that is said by Muslims everywhere at least five times a day during their daily prayers.

They say it when their football team turns the game around.

Or when they see a newborn baby.

They literally say it all the time.

In fact, the expression is so commonplace that it is considered rather unnoteworthy.

Except when a radical Muslim uses it before they commit unimaginable atrocities. That was the case earlier this week when an Islamic extremist attacked and killed 8 people in New York City.

It’s not an isolated case.

The men who carried out the attack on the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo in 2015 shouted it during their slaughter.

And the phrase cut through the air as a British soldier was run down near military barracks in 2013 and then hacked to death.

It’s a shame that a handful of terrorists have hijacked such a profound, yet simple prayer and conditioned us to fear those two words.

The Muslim community has come out and condemned the New York City attack. But they have to make their voice louder.

The God that Sayfullo Saipov praised before running over 20 people is not the God they pray to.

It’s not the God I pray to.

Allahu Akbar. God is great. But any violence done in God’s name is a twisted lie.

The Coming Democratic Civil War.

Civil War has come to the Democratic Party. Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazille dropped a bombshell yesterday when she revealed that the Clinton Campaign, through internal corruption and unethical finances, wielded near complete control over the DNC. She went on to describe how the Obama campaign had left the party bankrupt and in shambles. The Hillary campaign stepped in and began to pay off the millions in debt, but for a price. Brazille alleges that Hillary had quote:

“the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.”

Keep in mind, Hillary and her campaign were wielding this power over the DNC long BEFORE she got the nomination. So Brazille is saying that both Trump and Bernie Sanders were right. The system was rigged in Hillary’s favor.

Let’s forget the fact that HIllary Clinton beat Sanders by nearly four million votes. That’s about 55% of the vote with a 12-percentage point gap. If that were to happen in a general election we’d be calling it a landslide. But forget all that for a second. Here we have Donna Brazille, who tried to rig a debate FOR HILLARY, is NOW saying Hillary rigged the primary against Bernie. Not only did she blast Hillary, she also made critical remarks regarding Obama, claiming his campaign basically destroyed the party. What are the Democrats doing?

The New Yorker ran an article a day before all this came out, saying there was a big divide within the Party on how to move forward. There are new leaders stepping forward amongst the Democrats and they’re beginning to push back against the establishment. Were Brazille’s remarks part of an opening salvo aimed at overturning the current leadership?

There’s a new Democratic base growing and this information is going to severely piss them off. This new base is listening to people like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris. They want free healthcare, free college and high minimum wage. They’re sick of the middle and want a hard turn to the far left. A recent poll found that nearly half of the millennials in the country prefer to live in a Socialist state over a capitalist.

This quiet Civil War just went public, and the winners may take the words “fundamental transformation” to a whole new level.

Is This Tax Plan a Game Changer?

Will we ever see a truly innovative tax plan in America?

We’re ten months into a year in which Republicans control the House, Senate, and White House. Remind me, which legislative goals have they accomplished again?

There was the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Then there was basically nothing except the botched effort to overhaul health care.

President Trump and Republicans in Congress are desperate for something they can hang their hats on because the clock is ticking on 2017 and they need a win. Tax reform! Surely that’s the ticket. They’ve been talking about fixing our overcomplicated tax code for years. This is their big chance.

First, they need a catchy title for the bill. “Tax Cuts & Jobs Act.” Okay. Low score for originality, but it’s the substance that counts, right? How about the subtitle? MORE jobs, FAIRER taxes, BIGGER paychecks. Now we’re onto something. But how are they going to do those things exactly?

The House Republican tax plan came out yesterday and it is mostly like everything else Congress has slapped together this year – underwhelming. Your eyes glaze over as you read the plan, waiting to get to the really good stuff until you realize, that’s it? That’s the best you could come up with?

In the press conference announcing the plan, Paul Ryan called it, “Real relief for people in the middle.” I guess there is some relief. Maybe. The new family credit expands the tax credit from $1,000 to $1,600 per child. Overall, it does look like most Americans will pay a little less in taxes with this plan, but it really depends on several factors.

So far, the only thing that jumps off the page as a potential game-changer is reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20%. That one could actually help American companies compete better on the world stage. It could create more jobs. It might even attract more foreign companies to set up shop in the U.S.

Other than that, the “Tax Cuts & Jobs Act” is about as uninspired as its title. It’s a slight improvement, just nothing innovative.

Then again, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi don’t like the plan, so it can’t be that bad.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
