After ISIS scare at a Utah high school, where are all the bomb control activists?

While the Broward County high schoolers continue their national media tour, we STILL haven’t even begun to discuss school security.

Sure, there have been a few mentions of arming teachers, but outside of that, has there been any serious debate on how to harden public schools? I seriously hope so, because while every media outlet and their mother has given air time to David Hogg and his band of underage national policy “experts,” there are some very bad people planning some very bad things.

On Monday, ISIS tried to attack Pine View High School --- IN ST. GEORGE UTAH!

This is a community with less than 100,000 people, famous for its proximity to Zion National Park and the location of Brigham Young’s winter home... Not exactly a hotbed for Islamic extremism.

The teenager arrived at school on Monday with a bomb he made at his home. After trying to detonate it inside the school, a malfunction caused the device to emit large amounts of smoke. The school was evacuated and --- thankfully --- no one was hurt.

Police searched the attacker's house and found the materials used to construct the bomb. They also found evidence that he had been researching and promoting ISIS.

As it turns out, none of this should have been a surprise.

The student had already been involved in two separate incidents where he made it clear he was an ISIS supporter. On one occasion, he took down the school’s American flag and replaced it with an ISIS flag. On another, he spray-painted “ISIS is coming” on the side of a building. Despite all that, officers said he was authorized to be on school grounds.

I kind of doubt you see Hogg talk about this today, and you probably won’t hear anyone else talk about it in the right context. But imagine if this attacker had attempted this with an AR-15. What if he pulled out the rifle, but it jammed?

Even if no one got hurt, that might have been the final straw that pushed this gun control debate over the edge. Media coverage would be blowing up, not over the circumstances surrounding the attack, but over the weapon used. That’s all you’d see today on every cable news station. It would be in every national paper.

If this attack involved a jammed gun versus a malfunctioning bomb --- this close to the Parkland shooting --- the Second Amendment would be hanging by a thread today.

Meanwhile, we refuse to talk about the ACTUAL problems.

Why did this student still have access to a school? Is supporting the most violent terror group in the world not cause for a mental evaluation? Was there no law enforcement investigation on this kid?

When will we get serious about finding out how to protect our schools from ALL threats?

Schools are incredibly soft targets and it’s now apparent that terrorists are taking notice. When ISIS attacked New York City five months ago by driving a truck down a bike path, the media talked about it --- for what, maybe a few days? Now, look what happens when an attack hits a school. It dominates the news for weeks and even starts debates on national policy.

You'd better believe very bad people are watching this. They’re taking notes. It’s time we stopped talking nonsense and got serious about what the ACTUAL problems are.

We got lucky on Monday, but our luck is quickly running out.

In the era of 'Fake News' and the 24 hour news cycle, knowing what stories are most important can be difficult. This story is one of the three things Glenn selected to share with you today that you won't hear anywhere else.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
