Glenn Beck: The most important test of your life...

Last night I said to Joe, who is my chief researcher and one of my best friends, and I'll say this to Pat now because he wasn't there last night. I need to study, I need to study the Bible unlike I've ever studied before. And like intense study. And I would recommend the same to you. Intense study, like you are crashing for a the most important test of your life. Because I believe we are headed for the most important test in our life.

I saw this story that just came up from the U.K. Telegraph: Global employment crisis will stir social unrest, warns UN agency. Now, let me ask you: When did the UN become such a fear monger? This is what I've been warning was coming for the last two years when I read The Coming Insurrection. It is a well played and well laid plan. Global unemployment will not recover global employment will not recover to precrisis levels until at least 2015 if the current policies are pursued, creating social tension, says the international labor organization of the UN. The agency said by putting two years from the 2013 to its previous assessment of the time needed to create 22 million jobs, still needed to regain the precrisis level, it will cause more problems. The global economy has started to grow again with encouraging signs. Despite these significant gains, new clouds have emerged on the employment horizon, and the prospects have worsened significantly in many countries.

Do you hear this? For the United States where persistent unemployment has become the main issue in this November's election, the number of jobs still needed to regain precrisis levels is 6.9. Listen to this key line: The extended loss of employment and growing perceptions of unfairness risk increased social tension, according to the UN.

I want you to watch this weekend's rally in Washington, and I want you to ask yourself this question: Is this easing social tensions or is this help creating social tensions? What the 8/28 event did was try to show you a way to ease social tensions. It was a way and this is one of the reasons why I said don't bring signs. Because those increase social tensions. I know you because I do, too. You want to vent. And I know no, I don't. No, I don't. I've been on the radio since I was 13 years old. I don't know what it's like to be you. I can guess, because there have been times that I have been off the radio. And Pat, I think you were off the radio at one time for about a year, weren't you? And there's nothing more frustrating than not having a voice. And so you want to have that sign because that's your chance to say what you've been wanting to say. And I understand that. I do. I can't tell you that I've lived it. I have told I can tell you that I have been off the air for a couple of months in my life and I have thought, how do normal people not explode? I have a chance to vent; they don't. I am asking you now no. I am begging you now that you make the commitment to be a better person than you were yesterday, that you understand the seasons are changing. The time is almost upon us, where you must be a Gandhi. You must be Martin Luther King. You must be a George Washington. You must be the person that can walk into a room and say, gang, it's okay, it's all right; here are the exits. This audience has a special place. This will be remembered, I truly believe this with everything in me. The people that are in the footprint of Mercury, of Glenn Beck, you know, whatever, I hate to use my name in it, but the people who gather together under this umbrella are going to be the ones that save the republic because it's not going to come from fighting, it's not going to come from anything other than knowledge, true, true knowledge, a connection to truth, a connection to God, and a connection to each other for charity.

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
