Glenn Beck: Chris Matthews solution for America -- rapid rail

GLENN: Okay, I don't even know if I'm high atop Times Square or deep below the bowels of the Earth or I'm in China or in Russia or America. I don't even know what's real anymore because everything is upside down. It's an alternate universe. We have Chris Matthews, Chris Matthews telling America this.

MATTHEWS: But we've got everybody in the world cutting back and what's that do with the prospect of economic expansion here at home? Well, it kills it. If you are looking for good news, I have one suggestion. Stop listening to Europe, stop listening to the conservatives. Do what has worked in the past.

GLENN: It's never worked in the past. It never has worked in the past. I mean, anybody who wants to go, "Come on, Chris, we'll go head to head on the Great Depression."

PAT: Talks a little bit about that.

GLENN: Even the guy who — does he?

PAT: Yeah. He talks a little bit about the Great Depression and what worked.

MATTHEWS: What got us out of the Great Depression was production, massive industrial production to support the allied cause in World War II. We need production for this country now. We need to build rapid rail to catch up to those allies from World War II.

GLENN: Rapid rail?

PAT: Rapid rail is going to get us out of this mess.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh! I can't take it! I can't take it! Henry Morgenthau, the guy who helped design the New Deal said in 1939, it doesn't work. I wish it did work, but it doesn't work. We've tried. Now all we have is massive debt. We must stop this spending. Then World War II happened and that did employ everyone, but in 1946 we were starting to head back down. Everybody said, all of these economic advisors said, "we've got to go back, we can't just stop spending money, we can't do it, it will go back in the depression." And the Republicans — you know what, I just got a note from Ben Stein. Do you know who this was? Do you know who came up with this? Ben Stein's father is the guy who came up with, "Had enough?"

PAT: Oh, really?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: Ben Stein's father, an economist, said stop spending all this money. And the Republicans ran the campaign Had Enough. Republicans got into office, they cut spending and, boom, we created the gigantic boom of the late 1940s and early 1950s. That's what happened, Chris Matthews. But I love the fact they were now saying Chris Matthews — play that first clip again. I love this.

MATTHEWS: But we've got everyone in the world cutting back and what's that do to the prospect of economic expansion here at home? Well, it kills it. If you are looking for good news, I have one suggestion. Stop listening to Europe, stop listening to the conservatives. Do —

GLENN: Stop. Stop listening to Europe. Haven't we been saying that for a very long time? We've been saying stop listening to Europe, but no, no, no, they're enlightened, they're smarter than us, they're better than us, they know. We don't! We're ignorance, we're stupid!

PAT: And now that they're doing the right thing, stopping listening to them. But also —

GLENN: Not only that, not only that, we're not just saying stop listening to them, we are squandering a historic opportunity to unite with Europe. We are not squandering all of the goodwill that was built up around the world by hiring Barack Obama to be our leader, are we? The president isn't squandering all of the global goodwill, is he? By not listening to them, he's squandering it!

PAT: And we were so together shortly after the inauguration. They all loved us. They all loved us.

GLENN: They loved, loved —

PAT: And now...

GLENN: — loved us.

PAT: Now not so much. But here's what's interesting, too. He goes on about the rail and gives — cites some examples after telling us not to listen to Europe.

MATTHEWS: What has worked in the past? What got us out of the Great Depression was production, massive industrial production to support the allied cause in World War II.

GLENN: Pause for a second. Pause for a second. Do you notice he is not saying the New Deal got us out of the Great Depression.

PAT: No, he didn't. I was surprised.

GLENN: I was shocked by that.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He's admitting that it was World War II.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Okay.

MATTHEWS: We need production for this country now. We need to build rapid rail to catch up to those allies from World War II. France already has the TGV. China —

GLENN: France!

GLENN: Oh, France.

PAT: Stop listening to Europe but let's build the rapid rail like they did. What do you make up your mind. Should we be like France or not? Amazing.

GLENN: Does anybody within the sound of my voice really think that rapid rail — who thinks in the middle of the night, man, if we just had rapid rail, we would be set.

PAT: Oh, I think a lot of people. A lot of people.

GLENN: We just, if we just have rapid rail.

PAT: If we had rapid rail and we kept spending ourselves into oblivion.

GLENN: Oh, my goodness, it would be so —

PAT: Everything would be fixed.

GLENN: These guys are so — you know what? These universities that educated these nincompoops should be closed down. Should be closed down. If that's what you get out of your college education. Rapid rail? Rapid rail is the way to do it. You are a dummy. What a dope, rapid rail. What's that going to do for us? We can get the unemployed to their shopping carts faster. They are actually in Ohio. They are building a rail, rapid, rapid rail. And it will take you from Columbus to Cleveland in six hours. But you can drive to Cleveland in under three.

PAT: Yeah, it increases the time by almost a factor of three. It's almost three times as long because of all the stops.

GLENN: That's right, it's two hours, isn't it?

PAT: Yeah, I think it's just over two hours.

GLENN: Yeah, that's right. That's right. It's two hours to drive. But —

PAT: But you can take the train.

GLENN: And get there in six.

PAT: And pay more probably.

GLENN: That is — probably?

PAT: Now how much would you pay?

GLENN: Probably, when you figure in the taxes?

PAT: Well, yeah. Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Now, who is going to do that? Man, if I could still live in Columbus but I could work in Cleveland and I would only have to get to the train station by 2:00 a.m. to be there by 9:00.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: It would be great. Be great.

PAT: Where if I drove, I'd have to sleep in clear until, like, 6:00.

GLENN: And then if I get — I get off work at 5:00, get to the train station, get on the train, I could be home by midnight to be at the train station by 2:00! It's fantastic! Rapid rail, who could say no? And they are — seriously that's the stimulus package.

PAT: Well, it works in France, but don't listen to Europe.

GLENN: They don't work in France.

PAT: No, it does.

GLENN: No, no, no. It might. They don't.

PAT: They don't.

GLENN: They don't. The French don't work. No, seriously, seriously, America, we're going to pull ourselves out of this with rapid rail and the Peugeot. If we could just, if we could just start building Peugeots, we are going to be set.

PAT: I haven't heard that theory yet.

GLENN: The Peugeot theory?

PAT: I think that's new. I think that's new.

GLENN: Well, you'll have to have a pipe in your mouth when you talk about the Peugeot theory. It's the Peugeot theory of economics where you sit around, you do very little, you don't let anybody be fired, you'll retire at 50 and you build Peugeots.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, we like to talk about it at the coffee shop and the cafes. Oh, watch the street urchins.

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.
