Glenn Beck: The lies haven't changed



8.28.10: The Documentary


This is our first full-length documentary and it’s going to blow you away. It’s an exclusive inside look at the making of the 8-28 Rally. When we say exclusive, we mean it. From the time Glenn arrived in Washington DC to the time he took the stage our cameras were rolling. You will not believe what went on behind the scenes. Learn more...

GLENN: I want to talk to you a little bit about the lies that we have had. I played Brother, Can You Spare A Dime and Happy Days Are Here Again at the top of the hour to show you that the lies haven't changed, they haven't changed. That was the Great Depression and we're repeating everything in the from depression with you her adding something oh, so special to it. We're adding just a touch of the Viamar Republic. The reason why you don't print money is, well, first, we had a promise made in Bretton Woods, called Bretton Woods I and then Bretton Woods II, where we said, We'll be the gold standard. We'll never devalue our money. Well, we have. We did it -- first we got off the gold standard in the 1960's and then we said, we're just going to buy everything. The reason why you can't stop buying stuff is because we promised the rest of the world that's what he would do. We'll build their economies by buying stuff from them. When we got off the gold standard because we wanted the great society, that was the deal. We had Vietnam and the great society. We couldn't afford it. We didn't have enough gold. We said we're going off the gold standard. The world freaked out. We said, Don't worry. We're not going to make refrigerators or TV's anymore. Japan, you can make the TV's and somebody else, China, you can make the refrigerators. We'll buy it from you. So, you'll get our money. That was by design.

You don't print money because it devalues. They are stealing from your wallet and your bank account right now as the more the money -- the more money they print, the less your dollar is worth. That's why you will see oil prices go up, because it's pegged to the dollar. So, Saudi Arabia gets their money one way or another. We can have plenty of oil, but as they devalue our dollar, if it's $80 for a barrel of oil and we say we're going to -- we're going to print more money, they'll say, that's fine. Then that same $80 a barrel, it's now 85 because you've just knocked $5 of value off of your 80. So, we'll just keep charging you more. Prices go up. Your dollar is worth less. Viamar got into the trap of we can't afford it, it will trash if we don't, exactly the same things that you're hearing now. If we don't spend money -- remember Joe Biden, well, if we don't spend money, you'll say the mow, Joe, how can -- we've got to spend money to get out of this great debt? Yes, that's what I'm telling you. Remember that? That is the Viamar trap. You've got to spend money and keep printing it and if you don't, the economy stops and then it's chaos. But the other side is if you keep printing it, you'll never be able to get out of it and so your money will be worthless. Bring in spooky dude, George Soros who says what we need is a managed decline of the U.S. dollar because it's time for one global currency. Mark my words, you watch for George Soros to say these words: I don't believe Washington has a handle on this. They're -- he'll most likely say they're going to stop spending money or they're going to give these tax cuts and I don't believe that the U.S. currency, I don't believe the dollar is going to last. I'm very concerned about it. When that happens, it's the beginning of the end. Mark my words. Watch for his words. It's only happened four times in world history, right before a monetary crash and all four times it's been George Soros who has published those words.

Ben Bernanke first said under oath, we are not monetize our own debt, meaning we're not going to buy our own debt. That's you saying, Oh, Glenn, I need to borrow money for a house. Okay, Glenn. Are you going to pay me back? Yes, I am, Glenn. Okay. Then I'm going to charge you 5% interest. Okay, Glenn. Can we make it 4? Okay, Glenn. It's 4, but you've got to promise you're going to pay me back and you take the money out of your wallet and then you just take a piece of paper and pencil and you write, I owe you the money for the house. Okay, Glenn. You better pay me back. That's what's happening. They said they wouldn't do it. Then we caught them about a year ago because we tracked the bond numbers. When they sell a bond, they were selling it through a third party and then buying it back themselves two weeks later. They didn't want to get caught. Now they're just saying they're going to do it.

Do you remember when they said there wouldn't be inflation? We're not going -- these people like Glenn Beck, they're so worried about inflation. (Laughter.) We're worried about deflation. Yes, I'm worried about deflation, too, but at some point inflation is coming.

I don't think our houses have lost all of the value yet. I don't think we're at the bottom, gang. Do you? And then inflation, they're now seeing this week inflation is going up. Why? How is that possible? Bernanke is now saying we had high index rates. Joe, is that right on the bonds? It's an in flex rate, right? Interest? How about -- I'm trying to remember what that's called when you have to increase the payout. Pardon me? No, no, no. For the port bonds. Anyway, they have to give you more money in the future to buy these bonds. It's interest, really. That is a sign of trouble, huge spike in the bond sales this week, meaning people don't want to buy them. So, the Fed is buying them directly now and the Fed says, We have to print more money. Pat, when are they printing more money? Is it next month?

PAT: November, yeah.

GLENN: November they're printing more money. Gang, it's coming. What was required at Viamar was this: Politicians who explained to the German people, Guys, we are going to go through hell. We are going to go -- we're going to -- when we stop printing money, we're going to -- it's going to fall apart and people are going to lose their jobs, but we have faith in people that we can hold it together and we can restart our economy. That's the conversation that we need to have here in America, but no one will have it. Instead, they are wishing and hoping that hope and changety change, change, change will somehow or the other work for the first time in human history.

PAT: And they seem to be setting up exactly what happened in the Viamar Republic to finally turn that situation around.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: And that's after the hyperinflation, what saved Germany? They valued land. They went to a land standard and that's what -- they burned the rest of the money and they based it all on land and what is the Federal Government doing here now? But taking over all our property.

GLENN: They're taking the property. They're --

PAT: 98% of all new mortgages.

GLENN: They've got all -- 98% of all new mortgages are underwritten by the Federal Government. You will become a renter to the Federal Government. If there's any way you can pay off your house, you should pay off your house. And I know people will say that's nuts, but I'm telling you, you've got to own things, because that is what they did in Viamar. They just took it. I don't know if you're going to be able to keep it. We've never been in this situation before. Very few countries have and none of them have come out the other side. That's how dire this situation is.

 

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
