Glenn Beck: One-world Government in Our Future?




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

GLENN BECK, HOST: Tonight, I want to talk you to a little bit about un-sustainability. It can't go on this way. It's our debt, the dollar, your money, your children's future, the deficit.

I want to show you this here so you have some framework of what we're going to talk about this hour. We are now at $12 trillion — $12 trillion. But just so you know — that's our national debt. It's like a credit card. It's the accumulation of the deficits. It is at $11.99 trillion, we rounded it to $12 trillion.

And if you think that I'm bashing President Obama, you're wrong. A lot of this came up under George W. Bush. Our national debt — the credit card that we had in 2002 was $5.98 trillion. We're almost at $12 trillion. We have doubled the debt in 7 1/2 years, from $6 trillion to $12 trillion in the blink of an eye.

But let me ask you this question: How long did it take to get the first $6 trillion? Do you want to guess?

The first $6 trillion — we go back to 1995. Yes. No, I don't know why I stopped there. Or, you know, here it is. Here it is — the Reagan years, it had to be there, right? That we spend all that money?

1968, the Great Society, that would have been great.

1945, the end of World War II. No, no.

How about 1930, the Great Depression, huh? No. And I'm out of chalkboard. Can we get some tape? I want to — hang on, this may take a second.

All right. So, we have — it's taking a long time — right now, the producers are, like, he's in the dark. Get some light on him! Really? I look better in the dark. Ask my wife.

All right. So, it's not here, because this is about, what — I'd say this is about 18 — maybe 1865, you know, right around the end of the Civil War. Nope, that's not it.

How about — how about here, you know? Maybe — maybe in the Thomas Jefferson years? No. Nope, nope, not even in the Thomas Jefferson years.

No, it's crazy. We've got to go all the way back. We're going to stop in 17 — I guess I can't even do this — we're going to stop in 1791. 1791 is where we have to stop. Now, that's not the founding of our country — no, no, but this is our first debt, the actual founding of our country was a couple years before, 1791.

Follow this: 1791, 1800, Civil War, turn of the century, the Great Depression, World War II, the Great Society, Ronald Reagan, 1995, 2002 — and we still weren't at $6 trillion.

Now, follow this with me. Watch this. This should blow your mind.

Here we go. Where we estimate it to be next year? Fourteen trillion dollars. That's progress for you.

These are credit cards. We're spending ourselves into oblivion. There is going to be nothing left.

I want to show you a video, something that somebody sent to me last week. It's from CNBC. I don't know, this guy — I don't know anything about this guy that's being interviewed. We did some checking on him and I'll give you his bio in a second.

He's not crazy. He may be wrong but he's not crazy. He was on CNBC's Asia squawk box. I was dumbfounded by this interview because the host didn't say — wait, wait, what? I have never heard anyone on television say this before.

Watch this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, CNBC)

DAMON VICKERS, MANAGING DIRECTOR, NINE POINTS CAPITAL PARTNERS: Oil looks higher, gold looks higher, currencies look weaker — all for the reasons that we talked about before. I mean, you've got huge wage disparities. I don't know how that inevitably resolves itself. It may resolve itself in some type of a global currency crisis.

And then, if the global currency crisis unfolds, then, inevitably, you get, I guess, an alignment under a global government, a new global currency, and a new world order. So, we may be moving towards that.

HOST: Talk a little bit more about this currency crisis you see erupting. What does that assume about what's going to happen to the dollar?

VICKERS: Well, it assumes that the dollar will utterly get destroyed and become virtually worthless.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: I can't — I can't take it! I can't take to it. Well, talk to me about this currency crisis. What does that — did I hear it wrong? Play just a little snippet again. What did he say?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VICKERS: If the global currency crisis unfolds, then, inevitably, you get, I guess, an alignment under a global world government, a new global currency, and a new world order.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: That's not good. The guest just said that the dollar would collapse and replace with some sort of global currency.

I mean, have you checked the front page of "Drudge Report" today? China is saying, "Hey, America, you really might want to rethink that whole health care thing, it seems pretty expensive." That is our bank! That's like your bank calling up and saying, "Hey, by the way, I think you guys are spending too much money, that's a pretty big house." If this bank doesn't give us any more loan or if we burn this bank, there is nobody else left.

A one world government, a new world order — and the host doesn't even flinch. Apparently — apparently, that's not even shocking to anybody anymore, or they're not listening.

On the scales of insane things, I just want to show you what we skipped past. Ready? Look at this.

Put it up here.

We're in a recession now. People argue we weren't even in a recession. We're in a deep recession. I think we're on the edge of a depression because of what we're doing.

OK. So, we have skipped a deep recession and skipped depression, even the Great Depression. We went right to the collapse of the dollar, and then he went right to global currency, one world government, and a new world order, like that.

Gosh, I think I would have said, you know, as the host, "What did you just say?"

I invited — because they're not going to do it on CNBC, I thought I would invite Damon Vickers, managing director of Nine Points Capital Partners on to the program.

Damon, what did you just say?

VICKERS: Glenn.

BECK: What did you say?

VICKERS: Well, you know, the trends that are in place are disturbing. I mean, you make great points. I mean, it's — we have a momentum, and the momentum is the weak dollar. It's something that the current administration is in favor of. Printing money is also something that they're in favor because nobody wants to face the consequences of not having to live indulgently.

BECK: OK.

VICKERS: And not only Americans, but also the government as well.

BECK: OK. This — this is — let's get this out of money talk, because this isn't CNBC. Thank you, Jesus. But.

VICKERS: Where's Maria?

BECK: OK. Let's bring this down to everybody's level of understanding. What is happening here is the government is blaming us and saying that we won't live within our means as a society, but they're just promising us this stuff and telling us, no, no, first, during the Bush years, you don't have to worry about the debt. Yes, you do!

Now, they're saying we should worry about the debt, but, oh, no, we're not even close. I look at the "Drudge Report." I look at the Web sites, the financial, I read "Bloomberg." I read "The Financial Times." You can't tell me there isn't signal after signal after signal.

Last I saw was from China on the health care. Japan said we used to be a country of innovators. Now, we're just a protection.

I mean, how come nobody — how come it's only you saying these things?

VICKERS: Well, I'm not beholden to an investment banking firm that has the honored position of distributing government paper. So, and in terms that everybody can understand, when we look at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgans, they were the recipient of so much financial love. They distribute government paper. They distribute the debt to the planet. So, of course, we had to keep those interests in check.

We've got serious problems. I mean, the debt is a problem. It doesn't seem to be a problem to Bernanke. I mean, notice his comments yesterday that he's happy to see the dollar weak and they're not all that concerned.

The problem is — as we see it — is that there are huge disparities in the cost of production for American goods versus the cost of production in Bangladesh or in India, or in Vietnam. These people make money. They get paid what, some of them what, 70 cents, $1 a day.

BECK: Right.

VICKERS: Twenty cents an hour — I mean, incredible wages. These are our servants, really. They're just living outside of the country. Yet, we also, domestically, have to employ people to produce things because not everybody can appear on "The Glenn Beck Show."

I mean, people in Ohio and Michigan actually need to do something.

BECK: Right.

VICKERS: A lot of it involves labor.

BECK: Right.

(CROSSTALK)

BECK: What everybody is saying now and this is what global labor is doing, is they're saying that we're going to be able to bring the world up to our standard. No, they're not. They're not — that's not possible.

What — what we are doing right now is we are spending ourselves into oblivion. It is — are you familiar with the Cloward-Piven strategy?

VICKERS: No. It sounds great.

BECK: No, it doesn't. You got to look this up, because you would — you would understand this. Look up the Cloward-Piven, the Cloward-Piven strategy. It's a — it's a radical Marxist idea that came out of Columbia University, and I'm telling you, Damon, it's being employed right now.

And the idea is: you want to change the culture in America? You want to change the government? You want to overthrow the Constitution? You don't do it with guns. You don't do it anything like that. If you want a redistribution of wealth, what you do is you collapse the system, and then it has to restart.

Well, that's what is happening.

(CROSSTALK)

BECK: They are overwhelming it.

VICKERS: I know there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there. I had the benefit of doing the "Alex Jones Show" last night and I heard — I heard a couple of them. And I'm not disputing that many of them may be actually true. But market forces.

BECK: You don't need them.

VICKERS: . are likely to take.

BECK: You don't need a conspiracy theory.

VICKERS: Yes. But market forces are likely to take us there anyway. The dollar is way too high and other currencies are way too low. So, what you're likely to see is a realignment of currencies. We obviously cannot.

BECK: Say this in terms that people understand. A realignment of currencies doesn't mean anything. What it does mean is, you're going to live closer to the standard of Mexico than you are of America when they realign the currencies, correct?

VICKERS: Yes. That would be — that would be accurate. Our debts are simply too huge. There is no possible way that our labor forces can compete globally on a production cost basis.

When — if you or I, Glenn, were to come up with a brilliant idea, an "Aha, I got something," something Billy Mays might be proud of, maybe we would elect to make it here, but most people don't. When they come up with those great ideas, they're electing to immediately make them those things in the Philippines, or Bangladesh or Mexico.

That didn't happen in the past. In the past, we at least had a 10-, 15-, 20-year period where we created employment in this country. As of this moment, if great, new technologies come along that innovate society, like the arrival of the railroads, that really create an adoption cycle, an investment cycle, a bull market and economic expansion, those things that we're all talking about, they're not likely to land on these shores. The benefits are likely to be made overseas in emerging markets.

BECK: Right.

VICKERS: Beyond that, we don't have anything to export. We don't have oil.

BECK: That's why.

VICKERS: We don't — we are net consumers and net importers of our food. We don't have anything to export.

BECK: How did that happen?

VICKERS: We export promises and debt. And, inevitably, those two roads shall meet. And with the weakness of the dollar on a daily basis and the breakout on gold, it may be that we're moving towards it now.

BECK: America, how does this not make sense to you? I mean, this is the way it would work in your home. How does this not make sense?

How — how is it that we're still talking about insane things, instead of doing this, instead of America having this conversation of — look, look me in the eye, will you live a tough lifestyle right now? Will you — you've got to eventually pay the debt, it's immoral to pass all of this on — would you pay and live without government freebies? You got to work. You got to scratch. It's going to mean — it's going to mean like we live like our grandparents if we do it now.

VICKERS: But.

BECK: And you know what? That's fine. I will do that if my children still have an America at the end of it.

But, Damon, correct me if I'm wrong. If we don't get out of this, this thing will spiral out of control, and it will become — they'll push it up to a bigger, a higher power. Well, America is too-big-to-fail, got to make it into a one-world government, right?

VICKERS: Well, that — yes, that's exactly — that's exactly how it would unfold. You said something brilliant a second ago, which was about indulgence and about not facing the truth.

BECK: Hang on. I'm writing them down.

VICKERS: We are a society — we are a society that, I believe, for the most part medicates ourselves. Now, how do we do that? We do that with alcohol, we do it with drugs, we do it with bad television programs — not yours.

BECK: No, this is a bad TV show. Come on.

VICKERS: But programs — they dull the senses. We medicate ourselves. We take short-term impulsive fixes of buying things that we don't need, and we've accumulated so much. How many homes, how many cars, how many bangles of jewelry? I mean, we're choking on it. We're a society that has become a society where, literally, we stuff the macaroni and cheese in our bodies and we don't — we take out equity lines of credit to suck the fat out of our neck.

BECK: OK.

VICKERS: That is — this is craziness.

BECK: OK. Now, listen, I don't — I don't know about you, I don't have a problem with wealth. I don't have a problem with.

VICKERS: No. Me, neither.

BECK: OK. OK. Good, good. Because I just want to make that clear, I don't. But when you are putting it on a credit card — which is what our country is doing — it becomes insane.

I believe that we will be remembered in the history books only one of two ways. This generation and this time period, right now, we are making history. We will either be looked back on as the dumbest people ever to be on the face of the earth, the most clueless, greedy, obscene, stupid people, or we are going to be looked back on as heroes, because we decided to do the tough thing and live within our means!

And know what that means, gang. It means we're going to have our grandparents' depression nightmares, but they made it, and they were better for it.

And if you just want to ignore it, you know what? You're exactly right. We do medicate ourselves all the time.

We medicate ourselves, and just — as a recovering alcoholic, the media is the enabler. The politicians are the enabler. What they will do over and over? They'll say, "He doesn't have a problem, we don't have a problem, that's not happening." That's an enabler.

Get away from the enablers. Start rooting yourself in the truth.

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

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:


On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.

VOTE: You decide who gets a Badge of Merit (Round 3)

Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

The Purple Heart in George Washington's time was not given for being wounded. This award went to ordinary soldiers for doing something of merit—something that would find favor in the eyes of God. Washington knew they couldn't win if they weren't on God's side. And if they were on God's side, God would bless them.

I've been looking for people who deserve a George Washington badge of merit. Many of you have submitted nominations. Thank you for the love, respect, and consideration you have shown in doing so.

From your hundreds of nominations, we have narrowed it down to three finalists. Now, it's up to you to decide who gets this honor.

Here are this week's candidates:

1. Dana, the Mom to Many

Dana and her husband Brian run a nonprofit called Dogwood Ranch in southwest Missouri. According to their website:

Dogwood Ranch was created by family, for family. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to live the life for which they were created. Our mission is simple: to provide support for survivors of trauma as they journey towards wholeness. This includes creating a new heritage for foster children and youth who have been abused and neglected, by providing them with safe and healthy forever families. We are also committed to offering a place of belonging for foster teens through individualized transitional living services. Additionally, we offer specialized support through our equine assisted counseling program, which focuses on bringing restoration to foster youth and other at-risk populations, including our honored military veterans and their families. Through the operation of Dogwood Ranch, our desire is to allow those we serve a new way to experience life, family and true redemption. Everyone deserves a chance to find their way home.

According to her nominator, on top of their work at the ranch, they personally foster young girls and have had "over twenty foster girls they now call family."

Her nominator wrote:

They take the toughest cases that come up. On several occasions, I would reach out to see if she could go out, and she would say she couldn’t because they were on suicide watch that night. Young girls have tried to stab her, have stolen her car, and have come to call her Mom…She is an incredibly hard worker, no-nonsense, and full of life and joy. She is constantly making our community and our world a better place.

2. Francine, the Joyful Servant

Francine, who also goes by “Frannie,” and “Fran,” not only has multiple names, but wears multiple hats. At home, she is the mother of two boys with serious disabilities. At work, she is a caretaker for the elderly, and everywhere she goes, she is a ray of sunshine.

Her nominator entrusted her mother, who has since passed, to Francine's care at a nursing home. She said, whenever Francine was working, she would breathe a sigh of relief. She wrote:

While most of the aides looked at the work as just a paycheck, and some of them were actually cruel to the most needy patients, Fran treated each and every one of them like royalty. She saw each individual as unique and worthy of love and understanding. Every patient adored her, because they knew they were in good hands.

Her nominator wrote that she saw treatment of elderly patients that “made her skin crawl.” There was a woman at the nursing home with severe dementia who had become so antagonistic that other aides, to avoid feeding her by hand, would simply not feed her. When Fran was working, she made sure to sit with her while she ate. She even hosted “dinner parties” with multiple residents to ensure they were fed, and happy.

Her nominator wrote:

When Fran was on shift, people who needed help going to bed never had to wait long. Besides, they didn't mind waiting for FRANNIE. She always did everything with such love and care and class! Then, after a long eight hours (or sometimes a double shift!) she would go home to more of the same routine. And in spite of it all, she did it all with a smile on her face. I've never known anyone like her. She was a godsend to my mother. If it hadn't been for her, and a handful of others, Mom's time at the home would have been unbearable. This woman really does deserve an award.

3. Michael, the Godly Father

Michael was nominated by his three children for modeling how a true man of God lives, loves, and serves his community. After serving as a corpsman in the Vietnam War and then working as an elementary school teacher, his children say he was the “solid, and consistently Godly male role model” in his grandchildren’s life. His children wrote:

My father helped raise his grandkids when my sister was a single mom, even though he had already raised his own kids.

Michael shares the gospel in one-on-one Bible studies with young people who have just gotten out of jail. He raises donations for clothing, food, and blankets for the homeless. He meets weekly with young men for Bible studies, to mentor them, and help them mature into men of God.

Michael has taught true love to his children by the way he treats their mother–his wife of 42 years. They wrote:

He is a solid rock of unwavering love for her, which has had a huge impact on how my brother and I treat our own wives. Mike's steadfast love for our mother has taught us the meaning of loyalty, love, commitment, sacred covenant, compassion, honor, and what a true husband looks like.

Most importantly, they say their father "instilled in us an absolute love for our Creator and compassion for our fellow man. He is our number one role model showing us what a godly man is.”
