Glenn Beck: And the chaos begins...

GLENN: We were just talking during the break again about this South Korea situation. This is extraordinarily brave and it I personally believe that this is possibly the beginning of the is this the longest standing prediction of the show? We should find out. What's the longest standing prediction of this show? But one of them, and this one goes all the way back to the perfect storm which I told you about a year, maybe two years after 9/11. I started figuring it out, and the key was understanding Osama Bin Laden. In 1998 I was on the air and I had been reading the words of Osama Bin Laden, and I believed him. This guy wasn't a stupid guy. And I believed him. And he talked about bringing America to its knees and attacking New York and yada, yada, and I said in '98 this is going to happen. It's going to happen here in New York and there will be blood and bodies in the streets of New York. Well, we know what happened.

After that I went back and I looked at some of the things he said, and he made me so angry. When I first read the words, and I'm paraphrasing, that what I've done to the Soviet Union I will do to America. And I was really angry and I thought, my gosh, how dare you say that you collapsed the Soviet Union. You didn't collapse the Soviet Union. It was Ronald Reagan. Well, it wasn't just Ronald Reagan, though, and this is when I started thinking, well, it wasn't just Ronald Reagan. It was also Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul. The three of them really did it. No, well, now wait a minute. It was also the forces inside. It was the solidarity movement in Poland that did it. Well, now wait a minute, it was Afghanistan, though, and Osama Bin Laden that was bleeding them dry. Then I went back to Star Wars with Ronald Reagan and I'm like, oh, my gosh, Ronald Reagan was putting the pressure on them financially from in the obvious outward way, but the Afghanistan war was putting it on the inside way. And I realized it was a perfect storm that collapsed the former Soviet Union. It was all of these things. And each of us in our own arrogance takes credit for it. But it was teamwork. It was teamwork. And so when I figured that perfect storm out, I realized it was being recreated for us. And I will tell you this. It's being what happened in the former Soviet Union is being recreated 100%. I really don't think it's a coincidence that the former Soviets, the former communists, the diehards, they just took off their uniform and they replaced the uniform with a suit and put the gun in the drawer. But the gun is still in the drawer. And they developed an oligarchy. They developed a system of corruption, but it's all communists are still in charge. The communists are still in charge over there. They just don't call themselves that. They call themselves state capitalists. But you tell me that the KGB is any worse. What is it that NV what is the KGB called now? I don't remember.

PAT: I don't, either.

GLENN: But that, you tell me. I mean, they're killing reporters. They're killing anybody who stands in their way. What's the difference? So they don't have gulags anymore. They just gun you down in your elevator on your way to the apartment.

Well, the former Soviet Union did not collapse. It was transformed, as we told you before. Yeltsin went into the woods with the Ukraine with the Ukrainians and all, some of the other satellite countries of the former Soviet Union and said, look, there's going to be blood in the streets or we can transform it and you can keep your power and all of us can all of us can kind of, you know, go away happily here. And they made a secret deal in the woods and that's what happened. And I believe that's happening to our country right now. It's not in the woods. It's out in the open. It's Open Society. It's a new world order. But we are being fundamentally transformed. And this is the beginning of the perfect storm. When I said these conditions are going to form. And when the world figures out that America is weak and she's powerless, they will pounce and they will all do their part.

What did Al Qaeda announce this weekend? Al Qaeda has announced that they are going to do Operation Hemorrhage. Operation Hemorrhage is death by a thousand paper cuts. It doesn't even matter if they're successful anymore. Their words. It doesn't even matter if they're successful. If they put a bomb in a plane and the bomb doesn't go off, it doesn't matter. How much money did we spend getting those UPS planes down? How much money are we spending on the TSA now? What is happening to us?

There's a story you have to read. It's on the front page of The Blaze, I believe, and I'll get back to South Korea here in a second. But this one is from the London Daily Mail: We hate these obese passengers and people with personal hygiene issues. Now the abused TSA staff vent their anger. And it talks about, this story is amazing. You have to read it. It is not comfortable to come to work knowing full well that my hands will be feeling another man's private parts, their butt and inner thigh. Even worse is having to feel the inside of flab rolls of these obese passengers, and we get a lot of obese passengers. Another said he had a huge problem dealing with a large number of passengers daily that have a problem understanding what personal hygiene is. The staff said they experienced a high level of personal abuse while carrying out pat downs. Being a TSA often means being verbally abused. You let the comments roll off your back for the next person. However, when a woman refuses a scanner and then comes to me and tells me that she feels like I'm molesting her, that's beyond verbal abuse. I asked a woman if she thought I liked touching other women all day. She told me I probably did or I wouldn't be with the TSA.

What are we doing to each other? I made you a promise on 9/11. I went on the air on the afternoon of 9/11 and I made you a promise. I told you no outside force would ever destroy us. No outside force would ever destroy us, as long as we remembered who we were. We're forgetting who we were. We're forgetting who we even are. The TSA is not our enemy. Those guys, I told you two weeks ago, these guys do not like doing this. They're citizens just like us. It is the policy, not the people. If you alienate yourself from the TSA, if we push those TSA members up, they will view us as the enemy and you do not want the Department of Homeland Security and a will be freshly unionized force with the powers of the Department of Homeland Security thinking you're the enemy. Do not give them the ammunition to push them into a labor union. It's what this government wants. Do not. Think Gandhi. It's Christmas. Think Jesus. Know your rights but think Jesus. This is the point when I said that these things would start, they would see weak, they would see America as being weak and those forces all around the world like Al Qaeda, like Kim Jung Il, like Ahmadinejad, Muslim extremists, revolutionaries, they would all say at one point, "Now, go, go, go, go!" And they would take their piece of the pie. They would not be working together but they would all see the opportunity and they would seize it. I believe this is what is happening in North Korea.

How does Kim Jung Il think he's going to get away with it? He knows the United States ain't going to do anything. And answer this question: What is it we're going to do? Unless China we've condemned; China has not. Unless China solves this, unless China gives us permission, did you hear what I just said? The United States of America is no longer the global superpower. China is. This is 1917.

When I told you to read about Woodrow Wilson, that was another reason why I asked you to read. The world changed in 1917, but it took the great the second world war for the rest of the world to wake up to that. It's not going to take the second world war for the rest of the world. It's going to take chaos. Hopefully it's not a second world war. God forbid. But it is 1917. The world has changed. What is it that America is going to do here without China's permission? I don't think very much. If we want to act without China's permission off their coast do you know China is releasing maps now by accident. It was just a mistake. Where their international waters, their borders in the water? It's not the same border. These maps are wrong. Excuse me, that's not your territory. "Oh, it was just a mistake." Was it? Was it? There is in 20, I think it's 2012 or 2014, can you check? I think it's 2012, there is a regime change in China and much of the power goes back to the military, and the military doesn't like us. The leaders in China know that we just have to all work together and that's the best thing. The Chinese don't want instability. That's the one thing they don't want. They have two billion people. They don't want instability. They are on the edge, too. But there are those in the military that say, bring it on. Bring it on. I don't know what it is going to take for people to pull their heads out of the sand, but Stu, will you grant me this blanket statement? I know this is pretty broad, but correct me if you think I'm way off base. Only history will be able to tell us. Only historians 20 years down the road will be able to tell us, but I believe there's a good possibility we are entering exactly the times that I say were coming, that this is it. This is possibly the beginning of, go, go, go, go, go, where the world turns fast.

STU: Yeah, we can't possibly know that for

GLENN: We don't know that for 20 years.

STU: That's something you find out in the records when someone else opens them up decades down the line for historians to examine.

GLENN: But it sure has all the earmarks of it. It's going to look something like this if it's not.

STU: It could. I mean, you know, I think there's still you know, you need to more evidence. But you're not going to know until then. And it seems like when this stuff like Korea gets fired up, you never know. We were talking about this in the break, Pat brought up. You never know where this stuff goes. It could go easily China could be brought into this and when that stuff happens, you have no idea what level you're going to.

GLENN: China would love to be brought into this. I think China would love to be the peacemaker. China will come in and just

PAT: Or the peacemaker. Whatever they need to do I think.

GLENN: That's what I mean.

PAT: They are perfectly fine with doing it, yeah.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. They don't want instability.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And if it means we're going to crack down on this region, they will take the territory.

PAT: And if that means cracking down on South Korea, they will do it.

GLENN: They will do it.

PAT: And they will challenge us to do something about that.

GLENN: They will do it with Japan, they will do it with Taiwan, they will do it. They don't care. They are the world superpower now. Anybody, all of these people that thought, oh, well, China just needs us to be the leader, are you out of your mind? China has two billion people that live on the edge. They have 800 million people in poverty, 800 million people that live in poverty.

Now, do you really think that they're screwing around? Do you really think they care about anybody else's policies? They are going to keep themselves stable. Just like the United States and everybody else has ever done. You've at some point you as a country need to take care of your own people. There's a little something called self preservation that Americans seemingly have forgotten. And at some point China says, we've got to take care of our own. If you don't think they'll come over here and rape our mountains for the coal, especially if we dishonored their debt. They warned us, don't dishonor our investment. That's a quote: Don't dishonor our investment. We're going to stand up and say, no, you're not taking that? No, you can't have that oil in the Gulf as repayment? You really think? With two billion people, they can just drop people from the sky and they don't run out of people before we lose. I mean, people without parachutes. They just drop people and we lose!

PAT: It's only about 1.3 billion.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, you're

STU: You'd have to take over some more countries to get to two, but they are not above that, I suppose.

PAT: They could take over, you know, South Korea and North Korea and India and get there.

GLENN: Are you I'm sorry. Are you okay. So the number thing, are you saying to me that they couldn't just send planes and drop people out of the sky and we lose?

PAT: No, I think they will. I think they have proven they are perfectly willing to do that.

GLENN: They are perfectly willing to do that.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I mean, they have killed 80 million people, killed them. Just executed them. Oh.

STU: Starved them to death, all the fun stuff.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, no big deal. No big deal.

PAT: That's communism. It's beautiful.

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no, no. It's state capitalism.

PAT: Yeah. Oh, yeah.

STU: That was more commune well, it was well, forget it.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."
