Glenn Beck: New Survivalism

GLENN:  Just incredible.  And I don't know if you saw this in the New York Times.  God bless you for not reading the New York Times.  It was out yesterday in the New York Times.  The headline was "Duck and Cover."  It's the new survivalism.  "The traditional face of survivalism is that of a shaggy loner in camouflage holed up in the wilderness and surrounded by cases of canned good goods and ammunition.  But that's not what comes to mind with Barton M. Biggs.  He is the formal chief strategist at Morgan Stanley.  He sounds like a nut already, doesn't he?  Yet in Mr. Biggs's new book, "Wealth, War and Wisdom," he says people should "assume the possibility of a breakdown of the civilized infrastructure.  I'm sorry.  The former chief strategist for Morgan Stanley said, what again?

Assume the possibility of a breakdown of the civilized infrastructure.  Your safe haven must be self-sufficient and capable of growing some kind of food.  Well, this guy's crazy.  It should be well-stocked with seed, fertilizer, canned food, wine, medicine, clothes, etc. Think Swiss Family Robinson.  Even in America and Europe there could be moments of riot and rebellion when law and order temporarily completely breaks down.  The article by Alex Williams says survivalism is not just for survivalists anymore.  Faced with a confluence of diverse threats — a tanking economy, a housing crisis, looming environmental disasters, and a sharp spike in oil prices — people who do not consider themselves extremists are starting to discuss doomsday measures once associated with the social fringes.

Motivated by a belief that the credit crunch and a bursting housing bubble might spark widespread economic chaos, he began to take measures to prepare for the unknown over the last few years:  Buying old silver coins to use as currency; buying G.P.S. units, a satellite telephone and a hydroponic kit; and building a simple cabin in a remote West Texas desert.  If all of the planets line up and things do get bad, those who have not been prepared will be trapped in a city with thousands of others needing food and propane and everything else.  Esteemed economists debate whether the credit crisis could result in a complete meltdown of the financial system.  Former vice president of the United States informs that mass flooding could result in disease and starvation.  Perhaps -- the former vice president of the United States informs us that global warming could result in mass flooding, disease and starvation.  You heard all that, right?

STU:  I certainly have.

GLENN:  Or perhaps even a new ice age.

STU:  I'm sorry.  You said --

GLENN:  Sorry.  I missed that part of Inconvenient Truth.  No, to say that Al Gore is saying it's going to be either really, really hot or really, really cold.

STU:  Or really, really the same.  It's going to be one of the three.

GLENN:  Or go back between really, really hot or really, really cold.  They are not sure.  It will be some sort.  One thing about the temperature, too, is it's constantly changing but it's going down right now.

STU:  And you can read the temperature anywhere in the world and you'll find there is a temperature that exists there.

GLENN:  I have to tell you because in the East the sun is still rising and I have to tell you that we have projected the temperature from 5:00 this morning to this time right now and there has been dramatic change upward in the temperature.

STU:  In one day?

GLENN:  In one day.

STU:  I bet people --

GLENN:  No, no, no.

STU:  People are waking up and thinking --

GLENN:  No, they are in denial.  And we have projected that if this continues to rise like it is right now in New York City because we've already seen an 8 degree temperature change and it's in the winter.  So if this continues to happen over the next two weeks, we believe that it will be over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit here in New York City.

STU:  And this is the intraday climactic shift you talk about.

GLENN:  Yes, I talk about it every day.  Now, later on this afternoon I may be talking about how we could all freeze to death.

STU:  We're headed towards an ice age.

GLENN:  Ice age.  Because I don't know if you've noticed this.  Around 7:00 it starts to cool a little bit.

STU:  You know what's weird.  It's because it all seems to correspond with that giant ball of fire in the sky.

GLENN:  No, please, the sun has nothing to do with it.  It is man.

STU:  Just because something --

GLENN:  It is man.  It is not the sun.  It is man.

STU:  Just because the sun can --

GLENN:  Man is the one that's going around the Earth.  Not the one.

STU:  I understand that but what I'm saying is that just because the sun --

GLENN:  Stop.

STU:  -- can change the temperature here definitely has nothing to do with the .7 degrees over the last few years.  Nothing.

GLENN:  Stop it right now.  So here's my favorite part.  Here you have the chief global strategist for Morgan Stanley in a new book saying, hey, listen, things could break down and the whole country could look like Katrina because of this global economic thing that's happening.  So you should just be prepared.  Then they go into -- and Al Gore says it could get really, really hot or really, really cold.  And then they go into, hey, it's not just for crazy people.

You got the guy who was the chief global strategist, finances for Morgan Stanley.  Hey, it's not just crazy people like him.  It's also -- I love this -- Joyce Jimerson of Bellingham, Washington.  She was a coordinator for a recycling composting program affiliated with Washington State University in Bellingham, Washington.  She's made her yard into, quote, an edible garden.  So it's not just crazy people like the guy from Morgan Stanley.  It's also -- what was her name?  Joyce who's got the edible lawn.  Now, Joyce, I just want to say -- because she's worried about global climate change and how you are going to need food.  Let me just ask you this in Bellingham, Washington.  Do you have a fence around your yard?  Do you own a gun?  Because if you've turned your whole front yard into a garden and there's no food, I don't think people are going to obey the keep you have the garden sign that you've put there in your front yard.  I'm just saying.  And I'm wondering how you are going to defend -- just assuming that somebody who used to run the composting program for a university is a liberal.  I'm also wondering how you are going to defend yourself when you say, I was just prepared.  And they say, no, you are hoarding all the food.  It's evil people like you that just don't want to share all your food.  How you are going to defend yourself.  I'm just wondering.

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
