Glenn Beck: Don't Say I Didn't Warn You



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

Here's the one thing: The news is history. It's not what's happening, but what's happened and neither are important.

It's like: Yesterday, in New York, it was 67 degrees with thunderstorms that will continue through the following day. Down in Atlanta, it was 88 degrees; 92 in Miami, with scattered showers; high 60s in the upper Midwest.

Watch out, Texas! You hit 91 degrees yesterday. Comfortable out in the West; about 70-75 degrees.

Yesterday, a blistering 95 degrees in Phoenix.

You already got caught in the rain without an umbrella today — so what good is it to get that weather report tomorrow?

It's the same with news: It's over and done with. If you continually focus on what has already been done, you'll miss what is coming next.

It doesn't take a genius to see what's coming next; it only takes a change in perspective. Look at some of the stuff I saw coming:

November 2006: I spoke to Benjamin Netanyahu and said my biggest fear is an Iranian nuclear program

October 2006: First they will bail out the banks, then transportation, then energy

October 2007: Warned of economic tsunami

January 2008: Fallacy of ethanol

Two years ago: They're going to nationalize the banks

2007: Predicted Tom Brady would date a supermodel

Two years ago: Warned of depression and said we're heading toward European-style health care

September, 2004: Predicted New Orleans would be underwater if hurricane hit

1998: Actually listened to Usama bin Laden's words; predicted "blood in streets" of New York City

September, 2008: Barack Obama's march to socialism

Critics love to call me the "crazy guy." Why? Because I tell people they should be prepared for anything? Is there any difference between ABC News running a special called "Earth 2100': Is This the Final Century of Our Civilization?" and me running a "War Room" special talking about scenarios that are far more likely to occur?

Of course not — but there's no honest debate anymore. Americans are just accepting whatever is being fed to them.

When will people wake up? Instead of helplessly getting the old news, change your perspective and you might see what's actually coming our way.

Here's a look at the economic forecast 5-10 years from now:

Tomorrow heavy crying, with a good chance you'll need a blanky.

Heading into the weekend, it's going to rain cats and dogs and there's going to be an M&Ms shower.

On Saturday, you'll be facing desperation all day long.

On Sunday, there will be total darkness with 10 percent humidity.

Then on Monday, scattered raping and pillaging, with an 8 percent chance of cannibalism.

OK, I realize those examples may make you not want to look at the future, but we need to start paying attention to the low-pressure systems that are peeking over the horizon today: GM bankruptcy; giant progressive health care; tobacco being regulated like crazy, and the "pay czar" now regulating the top 100 jobs in bailed-out companies.

If you don't notice these things, then the freedom-loving America you grew up with is going to be old news.

I could be wrong about some of this stuff and no one hopes they are wrong more than me.

You know those wacky weather guys are wrong sometimes too — actually they are wrong a lot of the time — and yet you still bring an umbrella when the forecast calls for rain.

If it doesn't rain? Great. If it does? Fine, you were ready.

Maybe if things will turn out fine and accumulating more debt in six months than in 30 years will be like sunshine and lollipops and the government will turn out to be the best automaker the world has ever seen.

But I'm not counting on it, so I've got my umbrella out.

If that makes me the crazy guy, fine. But don't say I didn't warn you.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
