Glenn Beck: Unexplained Missile Launch

GLENN: I want to play some audio also from

The Blaze. This is from a news

channel in San Diego, and the pictures are pretty telling. I just want you to

listen to this news and tell me that you've ever heard, you've ever heard

anything like this on television or seen these pictures on local news before.

Here it is.

VOICE: Carlo, we put in a lot of calls to the Navy and Air Force tonight about

this, an incredible missile launch off the coast of LA around 5:00 p.m. But so

far no one seems to know anything about this launch. So we showed the video to

ambassador Robert Ellsworth, a former deputy Secretary of Defense to get his


ELLSWORTH: And it's spectacular. It takes people's breath away.

REPORTER: Who launched this missile and why remain a mystery now.

ELLSWORTH: It is a big missile.

REPORTER: These magnificent images were captured from the KCBS News helicopter

in Los Angeles around sunset. The location of the missile, west of LA, north of

Catalina Island and approximately 35 miles out to sea.

VOICE: You are looking at the LA Harbor.

REPORTER: A Navy spokesperson tells News 8 it wasn't their missile. He says

there was no Navy activity reported in that part of the region.

VOICE: And we have liftoff.

REPORTER: On Friday night Vandenberg Air Force base launched this Delta II

rocket carrying the Kos moss SkyMed satellite but a sergeant at the base tells

news 8 there have been no launches since then.

VOICE: That's a pretty big contrail.

REPORTER: We showed the video to Robert Ellsworth, former U.S. ambassador to

NATO and a former Deputy Secretary of Defense.

ELLSWORTH: It's not a tomahawk.

REPORTER: He said we should wait for definitive answers to come from the

military but when we asked him what he thought it could be...

ELLSWORTH: Well, I'm just speculating.

REPORTER: Ellsworth said maybe, just maybe with President Obama in Asia this

could have been a show of our military muscle.

GLENN: This is ridiculous. Listen to this.

ELLSWORTH: It could be a test firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile

from a submarine, underwater submarine to demonstrate --

GLENN: Overwater submarine?

PAT: Yeah. The airborne submarines.

ELLSWORTH: -- to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we could do that.

PAT: Oh. To demonstrate that we could do that because --

GLENN: Stop. Because we've never done that for, what, 30 years, 40 years?

PAT: Fifty or sixty?

GLENN: Okay. So we know that -- everybody -- the world knows that. You know who

doesn't know that? You know what a more logical -- and I'm not saying this is

it. I cannot believe -- I mean, let's just go through the logical explanations.

There is a -- there was a secret missile that was launched? Why would you launch

a missile at 5:00 in the afternoon, rush hour? Off the coast of Los Angeles? You

don't think anybody's going to see that? So you're not launching secret

missiles. That doesn't make sense. The next thing is somebody spilled coffee on

the submarine missile launcher and they are mopping it up and they are like,

whoa, I just hit -- sorry, captain, I just launched a missile. I've got to

believe, but I don't know, I've got to believe it's a little more difficult to

launch a cruise missile than just accidentally falling asleep on the switch.

Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know. I'm not willing to rule that one out. However,

with the redundancy, with the fact that it has -- I've never seen this before in

my lifetime? I just, it doesn't make sense to me. And I know the military. They

don't -- schmo is not behind the button: Oh, gee, wah, wah. There goes schmo

again launching another missile. That doesn't happen.

STU: NBC News does have an on-record -- on-background quote from a senior

official that says it is possible that the incident was an accidental launch by

the military.

GLENN: It's possible.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: You know what? Let me ask you this: Does this sound more feasible? We're

crippling the world's economies. The president is going to go over and meet with

the president of China. Thirty miles off the coast of California, a submarine,

not an American submarine, launches a missile as a show of force. Hey, by the

way, we just want you to know we can get within 30 miles of your coastline and

launch a cruise missile.

PAT: Who would do that? Norway? Mexico?

STU: Probably Norway.

PAT: The Dutch, Swedes?

GLENN: I mean, doesn't that sound more logical?

STU: Well --

GLENN: It's a show of force. How are we going to explain it? They are not going

to tell us.

STU: Yeah, but wouldn't they lie about that just as easily as they would lie

about another missile test? Just say, no, it was our test.

GLENN: They wouldn't have known in advance. So when the news media started

calling, they would all say, I don't know, there's no missile. We didn't launch

a missile. We don't know. It would take a while to go all the way up the chain

of command before -- you wouldn't know who launched it. And then China would

just say, we should find out. Did any -- was there any kind of alert? Did

America go on any kind of alert on the West Coast within a few minutes of that


STU: Yeah. Show of force or a test sort of run.

GLENN: I mean, we have a missile 30 miles off the coast of California go up into

the sky? Did we scramble planes? Did we do anything? Did we do anything? What

should we have done?

STU: The only thing I will -- just looking at the, from just journalistic

patterns right now, there are a lot of people writing about this story and

almost no one has any information on it. They all refer back to the same report

you just played.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And they all refer to this one guy who said specifically don't listen to

what I'm about to say about the speculation, but here's the speculation.

GLENN: Well, his speculation is that the United States made a goof. Or that we

were showing --

STU: He's showing force, I bought.

GLENN: Yeah, that we're showing force.

STU: Right, but they --

GLENN: Why would we do that? They know we can do it. I've seen the pictures of


STU: Of course.

PAT: We've done it for 40 years or more.

STU: I'm just looking at the way these story are breaking with everyone writing

about nothing is that maybe we don't have an answer yet. They may have talked to

somebody quickly who didn't know and maybe we'll get more.

GLENN: I understand that.

STU: It looks like one of those stories.

GLENN: And I would imagine that we were going to get an answer. I'm just asking

you, he's speculating. I mean, I guess we --

STU: You are allowed to speculate, too.

GLENN: I'm speculating, which makes more sense? China does that off the coast as

a show of force, or we do it to China off our coast as a show of -- what?

STU: Those are risky games, though. China's going to come 30 miles? I mean,

you're talking about a possible international nuclear war by launching missiles

off of our coast. Who knows what that starts? Those are high level games. And

maybe they are confident enough to play that, but that's tough stuff.

GLENN: It doesn't necessarily have to be China.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Back to Norway again. We're back to Norway.

STU: All roads end --

PAT: Norwegians?

GLENN: Yah, sure.

PAT: I'm sick of their show of power. I get it. I get it. You guys were strong.

GLENN: It wasn't a missile. It was a Volvo. It was an Saab, shot out of the



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:
