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.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
