Glenn's Annual Prediction Show

GLENN: All right. Now, here are the predictions that I made on the air last year and let's see how many of them are accurate. Let's go to 1, 2A, please. 'Britney Spears in the next 30 days will wear underpants.' I believe that's accurate.

STU: No, I think you're completely wrong on that.


STU: What evidence --

GLENN: From that show I believe she was in --

STU: What evidence do you have of that? There's plenty of evidence to the contrary. What evidence do you have that she's worn underwear? That's absolutely wrong.

GLENN: 1-3B, please. Housing will be up this month and the next few months and then it will start to decline by the end of the year. Housing will be down. More in a second.

GLENN: Somebody who is, you know, smarter than anybody on this program that happens to be like, track that date. If that happened this year, that's the kind of thing that I was talking about, that they would make a major move and what they did is they took that border town and they are smuggling weapons through there and they have really put a stronghold and a chokehold on that part of the Middle East and that is -- that's Iran. And that's the kind of stuff I was talking about.

STU: Well, you're saying if that happened before then, then you were just echoing a prediction that had already occurred. If it happened in 2006, then what the heck was the significance of making it in 2007?

GLENN: No, because if it happened -- because I think that that is the kind of thing that they were going to do. That is a significant move. That is a major --

STU: But you can't take credit for it if it happened before you made the prediction.

GLENN: No, no.

STU: So I want a buzzer. I want a buzzer.

GLENN: It may have been what I was talking about.

STU: You are guilty until proven innocent. Buzzer time. It's buzzer time.

GLENN: Wait a minute. I --

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: Now, there were also some -- there were also some listeners that called in.

STU: Yeah, lots of listeners. And that's actually what we need today, too. You have to make a prediction. Again listen to the rules. It has to be something that's going to happen in 2008. Don't tell me about what's going to happen in 2060. It's 2008. All of them need to be this year. Anything, anything. Pop culture, technology, war, economy, presidential election. All that stuff's on the table. But it's got to be this year.

GLENN: Yeah, all right. So before we get to some of the last predictions, let's get some new predictions. This one's from Wayne in Tampa, Florida, WFLA. Hello, Wayne, what's your prediction for the year?

CALLER: My prediction, it's a stretch, Glenn, but Britney Spears will die of an overdose in 2008.

GLENN: Wow, that's probably very likely.

STU: That's not a stretch.

GLENN: No, that's not a stretch. That's probably very likely. Sad but very likely. All right, Wayne, thanks a lot.

Let me go to Brad listening to us in St. George. Hello, Brad.

CALLER: Glenn, my prediction is that prime interest rate will go down to 5 3/4 by September of 2008.

GLENN: And then at what point does it get up to 10?

CALLER: At what point does it get up to 10?

GLENN: Say not in 2008, right? Is that what we're talking about here?

CALLER: Yeah, we're talking about 2008. We're talking about 2008. Okay, 5 3/4.

STU: That's a very specific prediction, I would say.

GLENN: It is, it is. All right, thanks, Brad. I've got to tell you something. If the interest rate, if they take this interest rate and they open the valves on this interest rate, we are in deep, deep, deep, deep trouble. You cannot open this valve very much more. You've got the -- they are not going to -- they are not going to fool with this interest rate for very long. If they open it, they'll open it a bit. If they open it a lot, we're in deep trouble because you will see the inflation shoot through. And we've talked about this on the program once before because it is so unbelievably tedious that it just makes my head hurt but it is the M2/M3 measurement of inflation and it is -- we have stopped measuring, the government has, has stopped now measuring how much money they're actually printing. They are printing more money than they have printed in quite possibly ever and they started printing more money when the Government stopped tracking how much money. You can still take a bunch of figures out there and add them all up and go, wait a minute, there's more money in the system now. But it requires an awful lot of work to be able to do that and the people who are doing that work, big banking firms and people who are looking at the economy, they are doing all of that work and they are seeing that the Government in the middle of the night is printing money.

STU: I don't know that I can let you off there, though, because for right now that prediction I have, if they lower interest rates, we are in big, big trouble, we need something more specific.

GLENN: No, if they open the valve significantly, if they lower interest rates significantly.

STU: What is significantly?

GLENN: If they go and they open up the interest -- if they open up the valve on the interest rates and they lower the interest rates and then the next month they lower it again and then the next month they lower it again.

STU: That would be 3/4 of a point you would say or a point? Maybe if one of them is a 1/2 point cut?

GLENN: I don't know. I don't -- and I don't feel comfortable making that kind of prediction.

STU: All right, significant. We'll leave it at significantly.

GLENN: If they just continue to cut the rate. If they repeat the pattern that caused this bubble, if they repeat the pattern that Greenspan was in.

STU: Keeping them very low.

GLENN: Keeping them very low and cutting them, we will be in trouble.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Because you will not be able to control inflation.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police

Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:

As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
