Glenn Beck: Prepare prepare prepare

PAT: You were talking about the president of the European Union, Herman Van Rompuy.

GLENN: I love Herman Van Rompulz.

PAT: We all feel that way.

GLENN: Fantastic. He's been sleeping for a while.

PAT: But he's woken up.

GLENN: Here he is. The president of the EU.

VOICE: "Moving to exceptionally difficult times, the financial crisis and its dramatic impact on employment, the budget, the climate crisis, which threatens our very survival, a period of anxiety, uncertainty and lack of confidence. Yet, these problems can be overcome by a joint effort in and between our countries. 2009 is also the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G-20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet."

PAT: How wonderful.

GLENN: Isn't that great?

PAT: I think somebody said that when it was going on. I don't remember but somebody --

STU: One of these superior theorists.

GLENN: Should be discredited. Here is why you don't want the crisis until America is prepared. America must be prepared, because the other side is prepared with the framework. And, remember, fear, what do they say? Their own words, they always telegraph and see it in others first. They always do. What have they been saying about fear? Fear allows or makes people do stupid things. They don't make good decisions. Well, if there's a crisis that they have not prepared you for, you will be fearful.

If there's a crisis overnight and all of a sudden your world melts down as I showed you on Friday, within 15 days of an event, 15 days, the IMF is in control. Will you be fearful and you will not make the right decision. The only thing we have to fear is not being prepared. If you are prepared, you're not fearful. By the way, Rand Paul said what about the debt ceiling? Because that is a possible trigger, not raising the debt ceiling.

STU: Right. They seem to be trying to go on the idea that he has not ruled it out is essentially the reason he's going to do it. He said I think exactly what tactics we'll use will have to be discussed and I do plan on working with others to find out what the best strategy is. But I'll tell you that I don't think adding debt is a good idea.

PAT: Nobody thinks adding debt is a good idea.

GLENN: I think Rand is smart enough to know.

PAT: You don't want to bring in the financial apocalypse.

GLENN: And that's what we're talking about. Everything that they told you was going to happen if we didn't pass TARP I'm telling you was true, and the only reason I was for it for three days was because I really thought they would use that time to prepare you. But they haven't. What they've done is prepared them. And when you see beginning tomorrow the George Soros story, tomorrow I tell you all about George Soros. The next day I tell you about George Soros and his allies. And if we still need another day I will tell you then exactly how it works and it will boggle your mind. I mean, no ifs, ands or doubts, am I overselling this?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: Am I overselling this from what little you know, Stu?

STU: Yeah, no, from the information.

GLENN: It will boggle your mind that these things are going on and it is all well researched and well documented. No ifs ands or buts in their own words.

PAT: That was my question to you. Do we know this for sure.

GLENN: We have it innuendo. In their own words. Much it from his own writings and his own videos. I mean, it's amazing -- it's amazing how clear they are. So you have to be prepared. What does that mean? Pat and I were talking about it over the weekend. America doesn't understand what the loss of the dollar means. Most people think well, oh well, so what, the dollar, it will just be a basket of currency if they even go that far. We've never lost the dollar. We've never had the problems that the rest of the world has. Why is Mexico in the problem that it is? Because the peso is worth the peso. Because there's corruption, because the system broke down, and because the peso isn't worth anything. You need to have a strong monetary system. We've always had one -- well, I shouldn't say that. Yes, yes, we've always had one until the progressives started screwing with it. First it was silver. And they started screwing with that. Then they started screwing with gold and everything else and they created this idea that you will never ever have a financial crisis. And we've had nothing but financial crisis after financial crisis and they've been getting bigger and bigger and bigger. So now what does this mean? Well, do you remember when I was mocked for telling you to go and buy shoes for your children and buy food. I've been mocked now for three years on this. Glenn Beck says go buy shoes. Do you know that women's shoes are up 58 percent I think it is in the last year? Did you know that? Did you know that cotton is up like 50 percent, 60 percent now as a raw good now in the last three months. All these things are going through the roof. But they're telling you that inflation isn't a problem. The rest of the world is now saying America is going to go through massive inflation. But they're still telling you about deflation. Why? If you owe money, this will be good for you. Let's say you're the federal government, because you'll be able to pay off that debt. If you're a saver this isn't good for you, because what you've saved is worth less. If you're somebody at the lowest rung of the economic ladder, this is the worst for you. Because you don't have anything. Your wages won't be able to keep up with the food. Just so you know, if you're a saver, it's bad for you unless you are moving your money into something that will be worth something. I'll show you later this week, we'll probably talk about it on the radio, Joe did some research over the weekend and was reading -- I feel bad for Joe. I made him read some diaries of some people that lived through the Vimar. And it talked about how people took their jewelry and they traded it for a bag of flour. How somebody wanted fresh vegetables and they took a link out of their gold chain and said: This is gold, here's a link of this, it's worth that asparagus. So there's a barter system in all of this. There's a system. You just have to have something of value, and I don't know what that value is. You won't know until you get here. I tell you, if you think like -- if you think like a German Jew, 1935, it would be alcohol, diamonds, gold, cigarettes, be things that you know people are going to need and you trade them. This is scary, crazy territory. So why should I listen to the scary crazy guy on radio?

PAT: Because if you don't and all of this does happen and you're completely unprepared, you got nowhere to go. But if you do listen, you get prepared and nothing happens, what's the worst that can happen? You've got some extra food and you pretend you're Mormon for a year.

GLENN: People make fun of you.

PAT: Oh well, you have some extra food preparedness in case something goes wrong, you've got a hurricane or tornado or joblessness.

GLENN: That really is. That really is it. Your downside is people make fun of you. Do you really care? Do you care that much? Embrace it. Embrace it. I mean, the ones who are the thinkers are always the ones -- the ones who are ahead of the curve are always the ones called insane or crazy. You'll notice that George Soros is announcing in his hedge fund newsletters and everything else and his op ed pages to buy commodities, to invest in commodities. What does that mean? Corn. Sugar. Gold. Precious metals. So he's saying those are going to go up in value. And if you're buying them as an investor, as commodities, well, you're not crazy, you're with George Soros. But because we're not George Soros, for me to tell you anything that is petroleum-based -- have you noticed how much gas has gone up? Nobody in the press -- Chuck Schumer is not in front of a gas station this week holding a press conference saying: Why is gas going up with this president? Nobody's doing that. Nobody's holding investigations with Exxon. You know why? Because the answer is clear why gas has gone up. They're devaluing the dollar. So you devalue the dollar and commodities, oil, goes up. What does that mean? Your tires, if you need new tires, you should buy them now. If you're going to need them in a year from now, you should buy them now. Tires made with petroleum products will be more expensive. Food will be more expensive. If you want -- if everybody makes fun of you for you taking those commodities and not having them in paper but having the actual sugar, the actual wheat that has been made into flour, the actual products, that's crazy. But to listen to George Soros and buy it in paper is not crazy. You tell me. I'm willing to be made fun of for the rest of my life on that one. I am willing to be remembered as a madman. I'm willing to be remembered as the guy who warned America, please buy sugar, please buy flour, please, please, have a year's worth of supplies, as much as you can, to be a shelter for someone else. None of these things may happen. Read the Wall Street Journal, however. Read the words of the people in Greece. Read the words of the people in France. Read the Foreign Minister of China. Read what they're saying to the president in India about our inflating of the dollar. You read those things and then decide if you want to be made fun of for the rest of your life. If I'm wrong, that's what will happen. If I'm right, and you haven't done it, what then? Are you going to be surrounded by a bunch of media matters people who are taking care of you going: Don't worry, we listened.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

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:
