Glenn Beck: Pentagon believes civil unrest is a threat

GLENN: Now, I've never heard this before and I know we do training for, you

know, a terrorist act or anything else, but I want you to listen to this audio

from CNBC on what the government is doing and what the government is preparing

for. Listen.




TheBlaze: ‘Unified Quest 2011’: Pentagon ‘War Games’ U.S.

Economic Meltdown

VOICE: more and more like an economic Cold War and it's not just a talking point

at the Pentagon. They are planning for real economic threats to America. Eamon

Javers has the latest on the war games that are playing out in some high

councils around your parts. Eamon?

EAMON JAVERS: Hey, Tyler, well, you're right. Ever since the crash of 2008 the

defense intelligence establishment has really been paying a lot of attention to

global markets and how they can serve as a threat to U.S. national security

interests. At one upcoming seminar next month they’re taking a look at a lot of

the issues that might be really familiar to CNBC viewers. Take a look at some of

the Pentagon's key concerns here. They are looking at the use of sovereign

wealth funds to manipulate markets and currencies. They are looking at nation

state economic collapse, sovereign default, a nation state instability, and they

are also worried about U.S. allies' budgets, deficits, and national security

infrastructures. And in the Army they are having a very interesting year long

exercise called Unified Quest 2011. And in that war gaming series, they are

looking at the implications of large scale economic breakdown inside the United

States that would force the Army to keep, quote, domestic order among civil

unrest and force the Army to deal with fragmented global power and drastically

lower budgets, this according to the trade publication insidedefense.com. And in

October military officials from the Marine Corps War Colleges visited the

trading floor of J.P. Morgan to study markets and the economies. So Tyler, you

can see that all parts of the Pentagon and defense intelligence establishment

are looking at markets and looking at ways they can present a new kind of threat

to the United States. These are the guys whose job it is to think about the very

worst possible things that could happen and they have dreamed up some very scary

scenarios here.

PAT: Like illegal scenarios, like the United States Army keeping control of its

citizenry. That's against the Posse Comitatus Act.

GLENN: No, no, that's what everybody was saying about the

PAT: Border.

GLENN: can't do that on the border.

PAT: I know. When it's pointed the other direction to keep people out, this

would be directed against us apparently in our cities to keep order? No. No.

GLENN: Now so you know, this isn't some crazy, you know this isn't Jesse Ventura

saying this. This is CNBC, which, (whispering). I mean, look at what I think I

talked about, a couple of years ago, my concern was the Bubba effect. Do you

remember? Talked about the Bubba effect. That the government was worried this is

maybe three years ago now. That the government was worried that if something

happened, and they were talking at the time about Islamic extremism, and

somebody, you know, somebody blew up, you know, or slammed planes into the Sears

tower, whatever, and somebody would take it out on somebody else they just

deemed were you know, was a Muslim or a terrorist or whatever and they were

just, you know, some stupid guy doing some stupid action and then the FBI would

have to go and arrest that guy. They were concerned at the time that the

government had squandered its credibility so much that if the FBI came in to

arrest that person that there would be enough people in this country that would

say, you know what, I don't agree with that person what that person did but how

dare you arrest him. Because your guys are the ones who let this thing happen.

You are the guys who turned your a blind eye every step of the way. We knew you

denied it the whole time. And people called the Bubba effect, people standing up

for Bubba who they don't necessarily agree with but they stand up because they

say the government is a bigger enemy. Now you add on top of this I mean, think

about it. If that scenario happened today and, you know, what's his name from

the justice department marches his boys in, the only good thing we have going

for us honestly is I trust the FBI. I don't trust them in Washington, but I

trust the local FBI offices. I think the local FBI could be wrong. I could be

wrong, but I think the local law enforcement and the local FBI offices and our

soldiers, I think they know. I think they know what's going on in this country.

I think our police officers and FBI and ATF, I hope, I hope, maybe I'm maybe I'm

being to Pollyanna, but I hope that they know exactly what's going on and

they've already thought, "If this happens, which side am I on." Because you

Posse Comitatus: You cannot occupy American land. You can't do it.

PAT: No, there's extreme exceptions, you know, like, I mean, massive civil

unrest. And even then, even then you would call in the National Guard, though.

That's

GLENN: National Guard

PAT: It's the National Guard's job to do that. Not, not the U.S. Army. Not the

U.S. Marines. You don't call in the military against the citizens of the U.S.

GLENN: And the reason why we have the National Guard, the reason why this law is

there is because our founders knew if you ever got an oppressive state, if you

ever had people who didn't respect the Constitution at the top, the fastest

thing they could do to take over is create a situation and then have the Army

march into these states. That's why it can only be done by the National Guard.

Because it requires the governors to call up the National Guard. It breaks it up

into 50 different generals, or heads of, you know, commanders in chief, if you

will. 50 other people have to make the decision. It's not the president making

the decision.

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."
