Glenn Beck: EU -- Fiscal union or bust?

GLENN: You know, it's it's amazing to me how this is all coming together and how beautifully crafted it is. It is truly elegant the way that this country and the globe is being conned into a collective government. I want to go back to Europe and show now the choice in Europe. You know that they first said that they had to give lots of bailout money and it had to be staggering amounts does this sound familiar to shock the system over in Europe. And it went to Greece and that was supposed to stop the dominoes from falling. And now the next domino is starting to fall and that is Ireland. And the Irish didn't want it. And they were forced by the EU to take it, otherwise all the other dominoes would fall. Well, there's more dominoes to come. It's going to be Portugal and then it will be Spain. It's over.

And so here's what's being reported in the financial sector today.

PAT: Business Insider has a story that's headlined: You've Got to Restructure the Eurozone Now Before the Radicals Take Over. If Europe is going to resolve the current crisis in an orderly way, it's going to have to move very quickly, not just for the obvious financial reasons.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Could you read that sentence again?

PAT: If Europe is going to resolve the crisis in an orderly way.

GLENN: Stop. Who else is talking about an orderly restructuring, an orderly decline? George Soros.

PAT: George Soros.

GLENN: Do you know that George Soros was just voted by some, I don't know, world organizational thing as the 15th most important and most influential man in the world? Now, why wouldn't we listen to what he has to say? If the world is being restructured. Listen to that again. For an orderly restructuring, you've got to move rapidly. Quick, quick! Emergency! You've got to reorder this right now! Otherwise chaos! And don't dismiss the chaos. There is chaos on the other end.

PAT: And this particular author says that for ten years he's been using mainly an economic argument to explain why he believed the Euro would have great difficulty to survive for even a decade, let alone as long as it has. So he's he claims to have seen this coming and he quotes another article from another expert in the Financial Times that the Eurozone is maneuvering itself into a position where it confronts the choice between two alternatives considered unimaginable: Fiscal union or total breakup. So they either unite under one continental I suppose government and really unite more than they already are.

GLENN: Fiscal government.

PAT: One fiscal government. Or they break up and go back to the monetary units that they used to use, like the franc and all the

GLENN: And the answer is local.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The answer is smaller, not bigger. And they are going to push them into the smaller.

Now, if you, if you unite all of Europe under one financial umbrella, who has the engine?

PAT: Oh, I know. I know. I know. Finland!

GLENN: No, not Finland, no.

PAT: Norway?

GLENN: Sorry, no.

STU: Denmark.


PAT: Luxembourg.


PAT: Luxembourgians.

STU: Monaco, Monaco.

GLENN: No, sorry.

STU: Ivory Coast! Ivory Coast!

VOICE: Oh, come on!

PAT: Bosnia?

GLENN: No, it's not. No. Germany.

PAT: Oh, crap. I didn't see that coming at all.

GLENN: Germany. So Germany now will be the financial center of this new European, this new European order.

PAT: That's always worked out so well when they've been the center of Europe.

GLENN: It has always worked out.

PAT: Very well. That's great.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you something. When you have Europe being shouldered by the workers of Germany, do you think the Germans take that on as a good thing? Do you think the Germans want the German identity erased?

STU: They usually don't.

GLENN: Good, good, usually have a major problem with that.

PAT: You are only saying that because you've got historical evidence to back it up.

GLENN: Every single time!

STU: Seems to be an issue for them.

GLENN: Yeah, it seems to be a problem. I don't know if you've ever been to Europe, but they don't want to melt into each other. We are a melting pot; they are not. They don't like the fact that everything is the same. They like the convenience of things being the same, but they are unique. They are stones. They are not bricks. But they are being held together now by materialism. Think of

PAT: Gosh.

GLENN: History repeats itself over and over and over again. It is the Tower of Babel. And is it, is it would you do a Google search of the EU parliament building and the Tower of Babel? Do it right now. Look at the two buildings side by side.

(Credit: Link)

PAT: You have to find an because there's no actual photos of the Tower of Babel.

GLENN: Thank you, thank you.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Thank you. There is a painting from, like, 1643 or something like that. But look at the have you done this, Pat?

PAT: Of what they would look like.

GLENN: Stu, have you seen them?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

PAT: It's pretty cool. You showed it on TV, didn't you, last week or the week before?

GLENN: Yeah, a couple of weeks ago. I mean, it's remarkable. It's remarkable.



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?
