Glenn Beck: Our future is being decided...

GLENN: And that's what needs -- and that's what I want to be frank on. I want to talk to you today about the American dream. I want to ask you what is the American dream. Who are we as people. Our future is being decided right now and it is being decided by special interests, by rulers and kings. They just don't wear a crown anymore. Lords and ladies, dukes and earls. We have entered a European period of America. I will tell you that I wonder, I wonder if in America you can truly be successful anymore. I wonder in America if you can truly, the individual, make a difference. That's what's being decided. Can a man make his own way? Can a man stand up and, against all odds, succeed? In Democracy in America, a book written in the 1800's about America, a European trying to figure out, what is this American experience, how does this work, we've never seen anything like it before in the history of the world. How does this work? The first half of the book talks about the glories and the wonders. The second half of the book talks about there will come a time where the rich and the powerful will try to kick the door closed because they don't want to share, pause they don't want to be challenged anymore, they made it, kick the door closed. The question is: Has that door been kicked closed and if it has, what then? I have a firm belief in the power of the individual. I have a firm belief in the idea of America. That's what America is, an idea, an idea that every man can make his own way, that every man will not be crushed, that every man has a right to fail and will fail. Your life will be more failure than success. Mine has been. Your life will be more stress than happiness. It's not just business. Your -- I tell you now, warning: Have all the children you want. Warning: It will be your greatest heartache, until the day you drop dead, they will be your greatest heartache. Warning: They will also be your greatest joy. It will be the only reason you live at some point in your life. If you truly get it, you'll realize that's the only thing that really means anything is your children. So, you will have to decide: Is it worth it? The answer is "yes."

Is the American experience, is the idea that all men are created equal, that we don't have kings and lords, that there is no system that will crush us, is it worth it? Is it worth fighting for? Is it worth giving the last full measure? The answer is "yes." It is why people raised the flag on Iwo Jima, standing practically on bodies, thousands dead, mowed down the moment they jumped off the boat. Why? For a piece of ground that we would never keep? A piece of ground that meant nothing? No. For the American idea.

We're tearing ourselves apart and there are those that are tearing us apart intentionally. There are people now that are telling, on both sides, the extreme right and the extreme left, It's my way. You do it my way. You don't listen to that person or listen to that person.

The New York Times finally, finally printed the story about how The Coming Insurrection is now a hit, it's a bestseller. It's been out for -- since the summer. Who's been selling this book on communism, on the most outrageous books I've ever read, the most evil book I've ever of read? The New York Times and, the publisher say, Glenn Beck. The New York Times wanted to know why, why would you do that if you say that it's the most evil book ever written? Because I'm not one who bans books! That's what Nazis do. That's what communists do. They tell you not to search, not to seek, not to listen, not to read. I tell you, turn over every stone, read everything you can, ask yourself. Don't ask the bold questions of others before you've asked the bold questions of yourself first. Please, I implore you, know what you believe, know what is true. Question with boldness even the very existence of God, for if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear. Why? Because you will not stand if you don't know what you truly believe. When trouble comes, you will not stand if you have a simple ton's version of the United States and the flag, oh, I don't know. I go to all of the fourth of July celebrations, I go to the parade. That's not what we are! That's not who we are. We are keepers of the dream. We are protectors of the flame. We are guardians of freedom, freedom to express yourself as you see fit! As long as you're not telling people to kill people, you have a profound honor and responsibility, because more and more people are wondering today, does the American dream even exist? And as you see more and more of this structure coming your way, more and more people will ask, can a man stand on his own, can a man come from nowhere and make it to the top? And the answer is "yes"! As long as you understand that American dream isn't -- has nothing to do with a TV set or a house, it has everything to do, everything to do with the pursuit of happiness and rights that can only come from one place, an ever loving God that loves you so much that he will allow you to experience pain and discomfort so you can understand the sweet, sweet blessings of life.


The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
