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.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars."

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
