2019 will be a bridge over troubled water

In 1970 Simon and Garfunkel released the song "Bridge Over Troubled Water"... a great song title, a legendary song, but maybe more importantly... a fitting label for this new year. 2019 is the bridge year. On the path we just walked is the post Cold War world, and it all began to change in 2008. A year that saw both a Russian invasion of a potential NATO country and the collapse of Lehman brothers. In fact, they happened near simultaneously with one another… in a span of just a few weeks.

We've been on this path since Christmas Day 1991. The Billboard top four songs were sung by Bryan Adams, Color Me Bad, C and C Music Factory and Paula Abdul… but on the other side of the world the Soviet Union was disintegrating. What would the world end up looking like? The West had spent decades mobilizing to contain a threat that now didn't exist. Western Europe had united to guarantee quote "peace and prosperity", and to forever eradicate the chance of world war. Even China and the United States had come together in this effort. Everyone had direction, but what had brought everyone together to the dinner table… was now gone. That's not to say we all didn't pretend things were still the same. We'd go on pretending for over two more decades, but the signs of change hit us like a mack truck in 2008.

We now find ourselves on the bridge. 2019 will be the year where we stand in the middle looking at the other side. Historic and generational scale change is what awaits us. The European Union will continue to unravel. NATO will start to dissolve. New Alliances will emerge. Old and new enemies will come together.

The way things used to work, will seem like a distant memory… and it will all begin to come clear this year.

The world is changing, and the waters of chaos are rising.

We're on the bridge, and the troubled waters beneath us is rising. The waters of chaos will push us on into uncharted territory, and - as in 2008 - the United States will be the catalyst. Recession is coming. Since 1933 our economic cycle has a recession - on average - every four years. It has now been over 8 years since the last recession hit. An economic uppercut is coming, and it's coming at a time when global debt is at record numbers. Consider this: consumer confidence began to decline back in November, oil prices are bottoming out, credit is beginning to crunch, asset prices are falling, and - for the first time in a decade - interest rates are rising. All of that adds up to a recession… and very soon.

When we stop buying, the entire world takes a hit. It's the same thing that happened in 2008. We caught a cold and the entire world sneezed… then caught pneumonia. Look at what's already happening. The UK is exiting the European Union, Italy and Greece are on the verge of default, French Yellow Vest protests resurged this past weekend, Russia can't pay their bills with oil at 50 dollars a barrel, and China is dealing with a greater than anticipated GDP slowdown and a trade war. Meanwhile war drums are beating with new military alliances forming and old ones dying. The world is changing, and the waters of chaos are rising. 2019 will be the year where we look back and say, that's where we saw it all take shape.

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?
