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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
