A decade later and are you ready for the big one?

Exactly ten years ago this week, all of our lives changed. On Tuesday, our attention - rightly so - was focused on what happened seventeen years ago this week on 9/11. But just seven years later, on September 15th, Lehman Brothers collapsed kicking off the 2008 financial crisis. New York City, again, was ground zero for another tragedy. The shock wave reverberated all across the globe.

The question today, after a decade of trying to fix the economy, is… could this happen again? Well it depends on who you talk to. Some people say that the record amounts of global and corporate debt will trigger the next crash. Some say that a global currency crisis is about to explode, and that will be the cause. Others fear protectionism and tariffs. To be honest, all of these things could trigger the next crash. Each scenario has the potential to make what happened in 2008 seem like a slight bump in the road. Imagine if all of these scenarios happened at the same time. What if all of the dominoes fall in sequence? It would be a catastrophe beyond anything the world has ever experienced.

But there is a new scenario that experts are even more worried about, and it's something I didn't even realize was being seriously considered. Yesterday, the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, who provide clearing and settlement for financial markets here in the U.S., released a report outlining their number one fear and cause for the next big financial crisis: Cyber warfare.

And they aren't the only ones worried. A few months ago, the government published a similar report drawing the same conclusions. These findings came from the Financial Stability Oversight Council, chaired by the Secretary of the Treasury.

This isn't some kooky hair brained conspiracy theory. Both the government and private business thinks that a cyber attack will be the root cause of a global crash. This is huge. How is this information not being reported on all over the country this week?

The reports detail how a nation state cyber attack will begin by targeting what's called a "systemically important financial institution." These are banks like Bank of America, JP Morgan, or the bank formerly known as Lehman Brothers. But they can also be giant hedge funds or insurance companies… like AIG. The Lehman Brothers collapse was the first shot of the 2008 crash, and experts are now saying that something similar will happen during the next one… the big one.

This isn't some kooky hair brained conspiracy theory.

A hostile country like China, Russia, or even North Korea, would trigger a run on one or multiple systemically important institutions. From there, the global system would begin to unravel just as it did before. But this time, it would happen as global and corporate debt are at record levels, as a global currency crisis is brewing and with a trade war escalating between the two largest economies in the world.

Technology is changing the world like never before. Some of it will be amazing and spectacular, but some of it will be horrifying and destructive.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
