Glenn Beck: Warning Sign



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p and 2a ET on the Fox News Channel...

GLENN: Let me give you the deficit. By the way, the dollar has dropped yet again. So you know, I am meeting with some really, really good economists and economic people in the next few weeks and coming months and one of the things I'm going to ask them for are smoke detectors basically. I want to know, give me the warning signs that we need to listen to so we have some sort of an idea, are we getting close to having to head for an exit. Basically if you'll look at my if you'll look in the coming months at what I'm going to propose, the first things that we have to do are shore ourselves up, make sure we're on solid ground, make sure that we have a way to not be enslaved because of our own debt or stupidity or ignorance. Then it's roll up your sleeves and be a part of the solution, not the problem. And stand firm. So what I need is some sort of a warning sign, warning bells of some of the things that I worry about when we hit these parameters, we know, uh oh, trouble. The dollar has fallen again. Gold has reached another record. I can't I don't see it anywhere on any of the screens in front of me. Let me just check with Bloomberg here real quick. Because it is still 1149.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: 1149.

PAT: When we use dollar bills as kindling in our fireplaces, will that be a warning sign? Is that, yeah, one of the smoke detectors we're talking about?

GLENN: So 1149 is the price right now of gold. That is not good. The falling dollar is not good. But more importantly, how about the debt? If you look at, if you look at

PAT: It's passed $12 trillion.

GLENN: Just passed $12 trillion. As I've said last night, if you've TiVoed last night's show, if you watch anything this week, watch last night's show because I talked about the debt and the lies that are being told. It just passed $12 trillion and now the debt ceiling has to be raised. Geithner has said that he's sure that the debt ceiling is going to be raised again. The debt ceiling being raised, they are projecting now, some are projecting that our national debt will be hold onto yourself. It just passed $12 trillion. They are saying that our debt, our national debt next year will be $14.4 trillion. When will the madness end? Soon, soon. But somehow or another the media

WILSON: Not hold these people responsible.

GLENN: I don't know if you've do you have the audio of give me the two pieces of Barack Obama.

PAT: Okay. This was from last night. And I think he said this to Major Garrett on Fox News.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think it is important, though, to recognize that if we keep on adding to the debt even in the midst of this recovery that at some point people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double dip recession.

PAT: Double dip recession.

GLENN: Double dip recession. If they lose confidence in the economy, it will lead to depression or worse.

PAT: Yeah, but what he told us last week, week before.

GLENN: Was what?

PAT: And the week before that was...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We have pulled the economy back from the brink. We got good news last week showing that for the first time in over a year, the economy was actually growing.

PAT: Okay. So and he's used that line I don't know how many times: We pulled it back from the brink; the steps we've taken are working and we pulled the economy back from the brink.

GLENN: There if I may, there is going to be another stimulus package. We are getting to the point healthcare may be the point. We're getting to the point to where if we do any more spending, people and not Americans. The rest of the world will lose confidence. They've already done it. They've already. Look, people are selling their dollars and buying gold. These are the central banks. These are the treasuries. These are the world governments. They are starting to ditch their dollars and buying gold. They are starting to dig in. You need to dig in as well. Get yourself out of debt because they are just going to wait until you see what we're going to do tonight. The news from California will boggle your mind.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
