Glenn Beck: Hate to Say I Told You So, But...





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

I've been telling you lately to stand in the truth. Because if you don't, it's only a matter of time before the truth finds you. Truth is a fire that eventually will consume everything else, so get yourself right and stand in the truth; then demand it from others and hold them accountable.

I think you get that; I think the truth matters to you. But it still doesn't matter to Washington or the media. They're continuing with the same old stuff: Everyone's bashing the Arizona immigration law without reading it. You're being told that the economy is on the rebound. You're also being told (by a congressman) that I'm scaring you into buying gold and that I'm a fear monger.

But Obama economic adviser Paul Volcker says "time is growing short" to address our economic problems. There's another stimulus act coming, only it's being called the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act — in hopes you don't notice. It's going to add $134 billion to the deficit, breaking the "pay as you go" promise. New House Ways and Means Chairman Sander Levin justifies the deficit spending by invoking — say it with me — "emergency provisions."

But I'm the fear monger? Stand in the truth.

I wish the government jobs fairy tale were true, I really do. I'd be the first to happily admit I was wrong and fade away into obscurity. Who's telling the truth? That's for you to decide, but here's what we've talked about.

I've told you about how the stock market will continue to fluctuate and destroy wealth:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

BECK: What it means is in the market of fear where everybody is right now, all of a sudden the market starts to rally and it can go up, you know, from 400 points to 4,000 points. It could just rally all the way up. But it's not real. And a bear rally then comes down and comes crashing down and destroys all of the wealth.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

In the first two minutes of trading Tuesday, the Dow lost 200 points before rebounding a bit and ending down for the day 22 points, closing above 10,000. It's been spiking and dipping.

Some people say this pattern looks like Japan, a country that lost the decade of the '90s after bubble burst resulting in a massive stock crash and debt crisis. And it does, but I think it's better to look at the 1930s. We are repeating the playbook from Woodrow Wilson and FDR and we're headed for the exact same results.

Tonight, I'm going to show you where we are headed — attention liberal bloggers in basements everywhere: Please put down World of Warcraft 11 and sharpen your pencils — this all heads towards global governance.

Just like everything else I've said, they're going to say it's a conspiracy and I'm crazy. That's why, I want to bring you up to speed on some of the things that have happened in the last few weeks on the things they called "crazy" or said would never happen. In the end, one of us will have a record on the things that count on the big picture. One will have a record of being right; the other will have a record of being wildly wrong. You'll have to decide which is which.

In August of 2008, I started warning you about the union pensions and how they'd be coming for federal bailouts:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

BECK: There's no way that you're going to be able to survive with these gigantic union pensions. It's just not going to happen. And so they're going to pass them off to the unions and if the unions get them, they'll pass them off to the state and then they will go all the way up to the feds...

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Senator Bob Casey is now pushing a bill that, if passed, would be a $165 billion bailout for "troubled union pension funds." And they're seeking $23 billion for teachers' unions.

Remember: I'm just the crazy guy who is fear-mongering about the economy. Ask yourself: Can we afford that? Of course not, and that leads me to something else we talked about: Rationing under the health care bill.

Critics say, Oh Glenn, they would only consider that in some sort of an emergency. You mean, like a shortage of government cash? Here's what I said back in July of last year:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: If you look at the chart, you will see the probability going up is the probability of intervention, getting some sort of medical treatment. You'll see if you're very, very young, or very, very old — about 55 years old — your chances of getting care is not healthy.

I want you to understand this is an emergency program. I have more amazing quotes for you coming up in the next few minutes. But I want to make it very, very clear: What these people are talking about is how to ration in the case of an emergency. They define that as a shortage, a shortage of kidneys, hospital beds or flu vaccines — a shortage. But what we have to remember is universal health care creates another shortage: a shortage of money. And when we are out of money, these people will begin making the rules governing your health care.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Completely crazy talk, right?

Obama's new nominee for administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Donald Berwick, says this: "We make those decisions all the time. The decision is not whether or not we will ration care, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open."

He doesn't even need an emergency excuse to justify rationing — like Rahm's brother — but there's most likely going to be one. Look at Europe. They're collapsing and guess what's being cut? Health care and pensions. They don't have enough to go around. Hmm, that sounds like rationing.

By the way, as everyone else was talking about how we should be more like Europe, as Obama was on his world apology tour apologizing that America wasn't as forward-thinking as Europe, I said this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: As world economies go down the tank and unemployment continues to rise — which some might say maybe some of these politicians actually want — the disenfranchised people are set to explode. And now, I was handed this this morning when I got into work, I have been trying to get a copy of this for a while. It is a brand new book. It is a dangerous book. It is called "The Coming Insurrection" — "The Coming Insurrection." It is, it is written by the Invisible Committee that calls for violent revolution...

They want to bring down capitalism and the Western way of life. This started in France and started to spread to countries like Greece and Iceland, where people are out of work, out of money and out of patience. Now, it's about to come here to America.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

I've been saying lately that Europe has a chance of falling like dominoes. I've been called crazy for that — oh, Europe is fine Glenn!* Here it is...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: So you have all of these countries going down in domino effect. We're starting to see now people are freaking out — wait a minute, wait a minute, what is happening in Europe? Apparently, their economies are all tied together. It's almost like we're all interdependent on each other.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Here's the headline from Monday's Washington Post: "One false move in Europe could set off global chain reaction."

OK, they've got part of it; there have already been about a hundred "false moves," but at least they are catching on that trouble is coming. I've been warning you about this and how Greece and other countries that fail will be pushed into a global framework. Well, the IMF is telling Greece, now that you've been bailed out, here's what you can and cannot spend. The IMF hasn't even bailed out Spain yet, but they are pressuring them for far-reaching and comprehensive reform of the country.

Europe, I hope you enjoyed sovereignty while you had it.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
