North Korean Radio Station Reportedly Hacked to Play This ‘80s Hit on Repeat

A radio station in Pyongyang was reportedly forced to play rock hit “The Final Countdown” after an unidentified hacker took control of it last week. Twitter users noticed the odd discrepancy when North Korean radio station 6400kHz started playing the classic ’80s song by the band Europe.

A Twitter user that goes by “The Jester” and is known for hacking jihadist websites publicized the news with a tweet, although another account seems to have pointed out the hack earlier.

“In a world where we seem to be afraid of everything and we have reason to be afraid of North Korea’s instability, it’s kind of nice to just sit back and laugh at them for a minute,” Glenn said on today’s show.

North Korea is under severe UN sanctions after leader Kim Jong Un repeatedly threatened the U.S. and its allies with nuclear war, conducting multiple missile tests in the past year.

GLENN: Well, it seems as though Europe has the secret weapon against North Korea's threats. And I don't mean the continent. I mean the band. Europe. Don't remember that?

Over the weekend, a brave soul hacked radio -- how do you say the -- Pyongyang. Pyongyang.

STU: Pyongyang. Pyongyang. There you go.

GLENN: Pyongyang. And played the Swedish rock band Europe, their 1986, the final countdown. They played it on loop.

Now, needless to say, you know, '80s, you know, hair bands, not regular programming there in North Korea. The regime usually uses the station to broadcast coded messages ahead of their provocations. For example, North Korea may broadcast on the station two days before conducting a nuclear test, one day before a ballistic missile test, and one day before they did the Japanese flyovers.

So you can imagine, it was probably quite a shock to -- to hear Joey Tempest vocals, instead of super serious coded message on how we're going to annihilate the United States.

This heroic act comes on the heels of President Trump's meeting with Chinese leaders to reaffirm their stance against North Korea's attempts to attain nuclear weapons. Trump said, all nations must come together to ensure this rogue regime cannot threaten the world with its nuclear weapons.

And in a world where we seem to be afraid of everything and we have reason to be afraid of North Korea's instability. It's kind of nice to sit back and just laugh at them for, I mean, a minute. You know. Especially when it feels like every day we're dealing with Kim Jong-un, who is -- who is going to issue some decree. And it will result in the final countdown. Right?

Yeah. It didn't really -- it didn't work. It didn't work in North Korea. It doesn't work here.

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.
