Glenn Beck: What about those fire booms?

GLENN: Let me get this in and you'll learn more about this tonight on television and we'll put this in our free e mail newsletter as well. The gulf oil spill. The federal government didn't have what's called a fire boom. You know what a fire boom is? Fire boom is a structure. You can tow it out with a couple of bolts to one of these things and you set the oil on fire.

GLENN: It's why, it's why they haven't burned off the oil like they said they were going to in the first place.

PAT: Yes.

STU: That was what they said in the first thing.

PAT: We're going to burn it off, kind of made sense to me.

GLENN: In fact, federal agencies have a law on the book that they are supposed to have. I think it's like ten of these around the Gulf Coast. In 1994 we have a law that was passed: Got to have these fire booms. So when this happened, American officials called Alaska American Marine and said do you have any of the fire boom things that we are supposed to be keeping by law? We could only find one in our country, one. The government then called BP and said, can you call some friends around the world? Do you have any, do you guys have any connections on any of these fire booms? The government was supposed to have fire booms. It's part of law. They didn't have them. They didn't do their job.

PAT: That doesn't sound at all familiar like what happened with the when they passed the law on building the border fence.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Where they had to by law build a border fence and then they didn't? That is completely dissimilar to that story. That's the good thing. The federal government never does that.

GLENN: You are mis... I think you are misreading this. I think you are looking at

PAT: No, it's not like it.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: It's completely dissimilar.

GLENN: Look for the stories, look for the stories on fire booms. Look for the stories on fire booms. See if you find that anywhere.

PAT: Haven't seen one yet.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I keep wondering.

GLENN: That's really interesting.

PAT: I keep wondering why haven't they lit this on fire and burned off that oil.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Interesting.

GLENN: So we're covering we're now having a company call other countries begging to buy or borrow equipment from other countries.

PAT: For the federal government.

GLENN: The United States of America is calling other countries and saying, can we borrow some of that equipment of yours?

PAT: Jeez. Meanwhile demonizing BP all the while.

GLENN: And by the way, do you know who BP gave more money to in the campaign, in the election? Big, big contributor.

PAT: I'm going to guess.

GLENN: Barack Obama.

PAT: Oh.

GLENN: Barack Obama. Just hoping that Barack Obama wouldn't put them out of business. Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids. See you tonight at 5:00 on the Fox News Channel.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
