Glenn's Predictions on Politics for 2018

Glenn came up with 40 predictions over the holiday and they were pretty wide-ranging, from medicine, tech, culture, politics, war --- you name it. Some seemed pretty optimistic, while others were downright catastrophic. But hey, they wouldn't be true Glenn Beck predictions if that wasn't the case, right?

Below are his predictions that were specifically related to "politics."

Which ones do you think will actually come about in 2018? Let Glenn know by upvoting the ones you agree with him on.

VOTE BELOW:

The Freedom Movement will experience somewhat of a renaissance, both in the US and globally.

In the US, this will mostly manifest at the local level and be primarily pushed by Millennial and Generation Z voters who will be completely disenchanted by the two major political parties. We'll see hundreds of new candidates from new political parties running in state, county and local elections.


Both Democrat and Republican parties will be forced to contend with significant weakness in recruiting and retaining younger voters, ultimately forcing them to change platform stances to accommodate Millennial and post-Millennial/Gen-Z ideas and positions.


A new understanding of a kinder and more ethical capitalism will be "rediscovered" by Millennials over socialism in the coming years. A new strain of "non hippie libertarianism" will be formed. We will see the early signs of this movement in 2018. It will be the alternative to a Bernie Sanders-style socialism. 

Churches will continue to lose power and influence.

Those who preach politics over principles and power over people in their own communities will lose more and more influence. The more "hell-fire" preached, the bigger the hit. Although, in times of strife and demagoguery, these will flourish for a short time and then collapse.


Traditional institutions that claim to be infallible or those that discourage honest questioning of doctrine will be the hardest hit. Mega-churches that are all show will lose "sheep" to flocks built on principles of quiet, humble faith and simple, charitable actions.

Hillary Clinton and Huma will be charged with crimes.

Just kidding! Bitcoin at a million is more likely.

The press will continue to be discredited by the Whitehouse and will continue to discredit themselves on both sides.

MSNBC, Breitbart and others that play to the rabid core of right or left will prosper over the short term during the run up to the midterms. It will be this same approach that will precipitate a quick downfall in the early 2020s.

The #MeToo movement will continue to grow, and 2018-19 will be the apex.

In 2018, it will be used to discredit Donald Trump and then spread to the midterms. Sadly, it will become a joke in the end.


It will not be effective against Trump. However, it will destroy what positive brand image, if any, the GOP still has with anyone under 35. It will also hurt the actual cries of victims.

In the US, gun rights advocates will finally get their long-sought Concealed Carry Reciprocity bills through Congress.

Already passed by the House in 2017, a compromise bill will get pushed by pro-liberty senators (Lee, Cruz, etc.) who are safe from midterm elections in 2018. While not perfect (certain waiting periods and state discretion on background checks will remain in place), the bill will effectively remove all state-level restrictions on firearms ownership and possession by enabling US citizens to simply get concealed carry permits in those states that are willing to license citizens from other states (e.g. AZ, TN).


The compromise bill will be voted purely along party lines in the Senate, but will represent a major step forward in securing self-defense rights to all US citizens.


Trump will happily sign the bill into law.

The US Supreme Court will finally strike down pro-labor laws that enable unions to take dues from workers involuntarily.

This will be a major blow to unions in the US because it will dramatically reduce their funding and overall power starting in 2018.

The Trump administration will finally begin construction on a true wall between the US and Mexico.

Discretionary funds will be provided from border protection and law enforcement and new infrastructure spending by the Republican-controlled Congress in early 2018.


While there will be a compromise on The Dreamers as well as an agreement to renew NAFTA as a component of securing the funding for part of the wall, we will actually see major construction begin next year. Construction sites themselves will be the sites of significant protests and even operate under the threat of violence from Antifa and other militant leftwing organizations.

The movement to impeach Trump will persist.

Antifa, coupled with OWS and others, will be funded through Soro's-based organizations to stir up the "Impeach-Trump" movement with marches and sit-ins. The movement will rise and fall in significance and will impact the 2018 midterms and 2020 election.

The Mueller-led investigation into Russia-election-hacking and any connection to the Trump administration will finally be put to rest.

No significant charges will be leveled against anyone and it will end up having basically zero impact on the Trump administration.


While the special counsel will likely issue a report that is strongly anti-Russia and broadly implies there were attempts by Russia/Russian agents to influence the election (in favor of Trump), the report itself will be very light on evidence or specifics. This sad, biased chapter of American politics will finally, mercifully be put to rest.


However, there will be continuing problems on two fronts:


1) The real trouble of Putin’s influence in the US and all Western countries will be largely ignored and will cause concern in 2018 and real trouble in 2020.


2) The Trump family's dealings with foreign banks will take the main stage in 2018.

Stay tuned as we'll be rolling out more of Glenn's predictions throughout the week.

GLENN: Today we posted at GlennBeck.com, we've broken my 2018 predictions down into four different categories, and these, I do not put these into the category -- mulch I do -- of like the caliphate. This is me looking for things that I say, okay, so what's trending? What do I think is going to happen? You know. Some of the predictions that I have made in the past, quite honestly, I don't -- I didn't have to think about those. They just -- they just hit me. So I just want to separate -- these are Glenn predictions, if you will, that I sat down and said, okay, so what are the trends doing.

So I put a few predictions down, and I think some of them are right, but we're asking you to vote and for the next couple of days, they will be broken up in chunks. Today, they're all political, and you can find them at GlennBeck.com.

STU: And the idea is to rank them as to what is the most likely to come true.

GLENN: And some of them are going to be hard. There are some of them that have several predictions in each one. You know what I mean? And so, you know, which one is going to come true? Which one do you think --

STU: You're not backing out of this? Is that what's haggle?

GLENN: No. 40 of them and there's going to be 39 that you're going to be able to beat me with a stick on next year.

Okay.

So here's prediction #1. The freedom movement will experience a bit of a renaissance. Both in the US and globally. In the US, this will mostly manifest at the local level of and be primarily pushed by millennial and Generation Z voters, who will be completely disenchanted by the two major political parties. We'll see hundreds of new candidates from new political parties running in state, county, and local elections, both Democrat and Republican parties will be forced to contend with significant weakness in recruiting and retaining younger voters, ultimately forcing them to change their platform stances to accommodate millennial and postmillennial/Generation Z ideas and positions.

Also, a new understanding of a kinder and more ethical capitalism will be rediscovered by millennials over socialism in the coming years. A new strain of, quote, nonhippie Libertarianism will be formed. We'll see the early signs of this movement in 2018. It will be the alternative to a Bernie Sanders-style socialism. What do you think?

[Buzz].

STU: I'm going with disagree on that one.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Yeah, that's not happening.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Yeah. The American people don't care about that stuff anymore. I honestly do think that, like, there is --

GLENN: This is driven by millennials, though. I think they do care.

STU: I don't care --

GLENN: They don't care about the parties and they don't believe in any of that. But they actually --

STU: I disagree! They're super passionate about the parties. If anything has been taught to us over the past couple of years, I think, is that people really freakin' care about that red versus blue battle. It is the most important thing in politics that they care about. It's that. And look, that summarizes a lot of things. A lot of things that are really material. Real policy differences. There's a lot of in there. I just don't think that's the primary concern of people who are -- the average person who's not listening to 15, 30 hours of talk radio every week. The average person cares only about that red versus blue battle. So the idea that they're going to lock into some third party or out of the system thing, I disagree with that.

GLENN: I just think that millennials, generally speaking, are going to -- they're so disgusted by all of it, they don't believe either side. They believe one side or the other more, but they don't -- they're disgusted by it, and it's going to get worse and worse and worse. And they're just a new -- I think there is a new attitude coming with the leaders of millennials.

Remember, it takes 10% to really change things. 18% is the tipping point. I'm not talking about 18% of millennials doing this.

STU: I think 4 of them doing anything would be a --

GLENN: Don't count those guys out.

STU: I'm not counting them out, but I do think that we're seeing now, in my opinion, is more of an association of, yeah, you're right. They're sick of it. They're sick of the way things are going. But what that -- how they crystallize that in their own lives is, attacking the other side. They're sick of that -- those people. Not themselves.

GLENN: So in this, both Republican and Democratic parties will be forced to contend with significant weaknesses in recruiting and retaining younger voters.

What that includes in there is the Democrats are going to move to more socialist ideas. They are going to -- the Bernie Sanders thing, and I don't know if it will be with Bernie Sanders, but the Bernie Sanders thing, socialism is going to become very, very popular. But at the same time, a new understanding of freedom, one that actually -- one that is -- that actually believes in diversity, that actually says, yeah, I don't care if you get married or not. The government shouldn't be involved. I don't care what you -- if you go to church or you don't go to church. The government shouldn't be involved. Are you a decent person? Are you hurting people? Are you, like, stealing money? Are you trying to take people's stuff? Are you trying to kill people? It's going to be boiled down to a much simpler, more Constitutional Bill of Rights kind of freedom on the other side.

STU: I feel like we're both looking outside and seeing really dark clouds, and I'm predicting rain, and you're predicting suntan time. You're predicting laying out by the pool. And it's 40 degrees, and for some reason, you're thinking it's all going to clear and go to 80 later on in the search if we get your bathing suits on.

GLENN: I cannot believe how much we've flipped places.

STU: You are way more optimistic on this. I have no hope on these things.

GLENN: You used to be the guy saying the exact opposite to me.

STU: Yeah, that's true. And I've been proven wrong! Clearly.

(Laughter.)

GLENN: Okay. Next prediction. Churches will continue to lose power and influence through 2018. Those who preach politics over principles and power over people in their own communities will lose more and more influence. The more hell fire that is preached, the bigger the hit. Although in times of strife and demagoguery, these flourish for a short time. But they will collapse.

Traditional institutions that claim to be infallible and that discourage thought and honest questions on their own doctrine will be hardest hit.

At the same time, megachurches that are more show will suffer and shed sheep to flocks who embody through quiet and humble action a simple, happy, and charitable life.

STU: That's interesting. I mean, because you were talking about millennials. What is it, now, a third of millennials think that church does more damage to society than good for society.

I mean, I think you're right. The one place you should be able to chase principle with no pragmatism at all is church. You should never make a church-based decision, when you're talking about faith-based things that's related to pragmatism. I want to go into church and then to tell me the thing that seems most obvious is the thing you shouldn't do, because of this guiding principle from this book that's really old, and we've been talking about for a long time.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And I think a lot of churches have gone -- and we've certainly seen on the left, and I think increasingly on the right, that have looked at the world and have formed their message based on the world and how it's moved, rather than a -- you know, a stone tablet, right? The place where it lives all the time and never changes.

GLENN: Yes, but it's also -- I think there's a difference now coming on -- on action. I do not want to just go sit in a church. I want to -- I want something that changes my life. I want something that goes out and does good. I want to be involved in doing things and helping people, and show it to me. Don't talk to me about it. Let's do it.

STU: And feel it, right?

GLENN: Yeah. I think that's what's coming. I think the pomp and circumstance, the traditional ways that we have connected religiously are falling away, and the churches that figure out that a church is just a place, it's a building. Real church, you should be in all the time. And it's everywhere. It's everywhere you go. And it's how you live your life I think those will prosper. We'll see. More in a second.

STU: GlennBeck.com is the place to go and see all of his predictions on politics. You can also sign up for the newsletter and get them all at once.

GLENN: And vote for them.

STU: And vote to see which one you think is most likely to happen and which one you think has no freakin' chance, you're going to have lots of opportunities on that.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
