Terror attack in Toronto is further evidence THIS is the real cause of rising violence

10 people are dead and 15 others were seriously wounded in a vicious attack yesterday in Toronto. It happened around 1pm on a busy commercial street as pedestrians took advantage of the sunny spring weather.

The attacker accelerated to over 40 miles per hour and swerved up onto the sidewalk, methodically mowing down person after person. Witnesses saw the white Ryder rental van zigzagging back and forth, deliberately trying to hit everyone it could.

At the end of his killing spree, the driver jumped out of his vehicle and pointed what appeared to be a gun at law enforcement, yelling “KILL ME!” The Toronto Police took him into custody soon after, miraculously, without anyone else getting hurt.

We’ve had two attacks in North America in the past few days where multiple people have been killed. Can you guess what they had in common? I’ll give you a hint. It wasn’t the weapon they used. The Nashville attack involved a naked SHOOTER with a history of mental problems. The Toronto DRIVER ran over innocent pedestrians before attempting suicide by cop.

Everyone that knew him thought he was a recluse and weird, but they could never have guessed he’d do this. We now know that he made a Facebook post glorifying the Isla Vista, California killer who shot and killed 6 people back in 2014. His post said, “The Incel rebellion has begun! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger.”

Incel is a term meaning involuntarily celibate. It seems both the Isla Vista shooter and the Toronto driver were both 1. Sexually frustrated and 2. CRAZY.

Mental health is the common denominator in both recent attacks. In fact, it’s the common denominator in nearly 100 percent of mass casualty attacks, but that NEVER gets the publicity, other than the weapon used --- that is, if that weapon was a gun. Now, why is that? If a mentally unstable killer attacks people with a gun, it’s instantly, “BAN THE GUN!” But if a mentally unstable person kills with a vehicle it’s, “Sad day today... Ok, maybe just this once we’ll offer ‘thoughts and prayers.’”

Mental health is the common denominator in both recent attacks.

In the UK, gun attacks in both 1987 and 1996 led to a firearms ban. In Germany, gun attacks in 2002 and 2009 led to heavily restrictive firearms legislation. The attack in Australia in 1996 led to another firearms ban. That’s three countries that focused on the weapon and not the real problem.

A timeframe spanning 22 years in which 98 people were killed by mentally unstable people. Now, look at this statistic. In the past THREE YEARS ALONE, 140 people have been killed in both Europe and the EU from vehicle ramming attacks. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY PEOPLE IN ONLY THREE YEARS!

Vehicular-based attacks are rising at a rate higher than mass shootings, but has anyone AT ALL blamed the cars in these attacks? Of course they’re not. That’s just plain idiotic. But when it comes to guns, they’ll blame the firearm EVERY... SINGLE... TIME.

We’ve become a culture that is losing its respect for life at a rate equal to its deteriorating mental health. THAT’S the problem. How long will it take for us to realize it?

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.
