GLENN: Can you get the front page of the New York Times for me, please? You know that story that we were talking about in the meeting, can you get that for me? The front page of the New York Times, they are talking about "You know what, we should watch out for our debt; there's problems. We should look out for our debt. What are we doing on the debt thing? Really?" New York Times is just covering this. And they tie it in and say you know what we really need to figure out? What do we have in common with Greece? Because what happens in Greece might happen here. You think so, New York Times? Welcome to the party.

PAT: Yeah, a lot of apparently the New York Times has decided that a lot of what Greece was doing was because it was a bunch of social programs like —

GLENN: That they can't afford.

PAT: They can't afford it, they can't afford the pensions.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And so they are collapsing and, gosh, aren't we doing some of those same things here?

GLENN: That's really weird, isn't it?

PAT: And didn't the New York Times kind of help push the New York Times thing down our throat?

GLENN: Thank you very much, Wilson. I love this. Look at this. Here's the New York Times today, in Greek crisis, some see parallels to U.S. debt woes. It's easy to look at the protests — the protestors and the politicians in Greece and the other European countries with huge debts and wonder why they don't get it. They have been enjoying more generous government benefits than they can afford. No mass rally and no bailout fund will ever change that. No benefit cuts or tax increases can change that. Yet, in the back of your mind comes a nagging question, writes the New York Times. How different really is the United States? The numbers on our federal debt are becoming frighteningly familiar. The debt is projected to equal 140% of gross domestic product within two decades. And in the budget troubles of state governments and the true shortfall is even larger. Greek's debt by comparison equals 115%. The United States probably will not face the same kind of crisis as Greece for all sorts of reasons — let me just add editorial comment here — because America is somehow different than the rest of the world. The laws of math, of finance, and the laws of physics just somehow or another magically break down at our shoreline, but I digress. But the basic problems are the same. Both countries have a bigger government than they are paying for, and politicians and spendthrift as some may be are not the main source of the problem. We the people are. We have not figured out the kind of government we want. We're in favor of Medicare, Social Security, good schools, wide highways, strong military, low taxes. Dealing with the disconnect will be a central economic issue of the next decade in Europe and Japan and this country. We're the major problem because we haven't decided what kind of government we want.

Excuse me? Ummm, yes, we did decide that. We did. We decided that a long, long time ago. The progressives have been spoon feeding us this nonsense and indoctrinating our kids. If you look at the wonders of socialism, do you know where socialism wins? There's a new Pew Research out, and I'm just pulling these off the top of my head. But it's like 51% are against socialism, has a negative context to 51% of Americans say socialism is bad... unless you're 18 to 24. 18 to 24, college students, which is so strange, college students are for it. Huh. That's weird. We're being spoon fed and indoctrinated. Excuse me, but the American people have decided. The American people, they say the government, the politicians are not the problem here. The people are. The people spoke! We said we didn't want the big healthcare! We said no! They did it anyway. The people aren't the problem. The politicians are the problem. The people aren't the problem. Did they ask you for another, what is it, a total of $30 billion for Freddie and Fannie? Did they ask you? You know they paid it this weekend. I don't remember being asked. Did they ask you if you wanted to bail out Greece? No, I wasn't asked. $1 trillion bailout. The IMF is behind this. We are 17% of the IMF. Anything the IMF gives to anybody else, that's 17 cents on every dollar comes from you. Did you vote for the IMF? Are you for the IMF? Do you know who they are? Do you know where they are? Do you know where they are located? Do you know who the president of the IMF is or the chairman of the board or the C — I don't even know their structure. Do you? 17 cents of every dollar from the IMF comes from your pocket! I mean, don't even get me started on this. That the people are the problem? The people are the problem. How about the Fed being the problem? Tell me the structure of the Fed. Tell me what it is. Tell me who the people are. Tell me — you know it's a private corporation. It's a collection of banks. Tell me who they are. Do you know? I don't. You know why? Because you are not allowed to know. It's secret. In a country, in this country it's secret to know who's printing our money, who's backing that? This is a note, a federal reserve note says it at the top of your money. What corporations are they? Which ones? Do you know that the Fed, to help out, to help out, and it's going to be a good investment for us, do you know that the Fed this weekend decided to buy Euros? They are buying Euros. As an investment. Why would we buy Euros? The Euro is going to collapse. So now the Fed, these private corporations, are buying Euros. Okay, that doesn't make any business sense at all. So what do they get out of it? Right, that's right, I forgot. I forgot. Where did we start? Crime, Inc. Money being funneled to giant corporations. The wealthy, the — I don't mean the people. Forget about the people who make, you know, $200 million a year. Forget about the people who make — the petty little Oprahs of the world. We're not talking about Oprah Winfrey kind of wealth. That's pish posh, man! Oprah's a pauper. We're talking about global... Oprah is not buying CDOs or CDS, whatever the hell, credit default swaps. She is not buying those. Who's buying those? The same people that just got the trillion dollars for Greece. They got that money. They took a trillion dollars from the taxpayers all over the world. They got that as a bailout. Now they have taken that money and some of them are now the ones who are betting on the default of Greece. So they are going to get paid twice.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

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.
