Glenn Beck: Problems Don't Require 'Global' Solutions




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

Everyone knows the world economy is on fire and all the leaders are trying to come up with something big to fix it.

But here's the one thing: The problem is the solution.

This morning, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with President Obama to propose a global "New Deal," suggesting that a comprehensive solution is needed to save the world from deep and prolonged recession.

That's bull crap.

This isn't about stopping a recession. It's about (in the immortal words of Rahm Emanuel) never letting a serious crisis go to waste.

Those who dream of us all living in peace and harmony in one sunshine and lollipop global community see this economic crisis as their opening. And gang, I can no longer look you in the eye and say it will never happen.

Think about it like this: Every day, Obama is out there talking about just how bad the economy is. Remember, they told us that if we didn't give the government hundreds of billions right away, the whole thing could collapse overnight.

But if that's true, then let me ask you a question: Why is an issue like global warming so high on the president's agenda?

The new budget contains a cap-and-trade program that is supposed to limit carbon-dioxide emissions. But if it performs anywhere near as well as the one in Europe has, it will likely limit nothing except corporate profits and economic growth. The Marshall Institute estimates this program will result in GDP losses from 0.3 percent up to 3 percent below business as usual projections in 2015.

Didn't everyone freak out at just how bad our last quarter was? Well, guess what? That was a loss of just 1.5 percent — half of what this idiotic cap-and-trade program could cost us.

So, why is it there? Well, remember the one thing: the solution is the problem.

The answer to why we're talking about global warming now is contained right there in its name: global warming.

Global warming fits perfectly with a global New Deal because they're both focused on solving everyone's problems all at once, while also ensuring that America takes on a majority of the world's burden.

But what they don't tell you is that "global" solutions are never the answer. Our problems will never be fixed from the top down, they can only be solved from the bottom up.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
