The war of the internets is a war we must win

In the coming years, there's going to be two internets. One that's controlled by the United States and one that's controlled by China. But don't take my word for it. That idea is echoed by Eric Schmidt, the head of Google. He said at a private event back in September that this will most likely happen sometime in the next ten years.

But what would a world split between Chinese and U.S. internets look like? A world that the experts are saying will be here in less than a decade. You've heard about China's Orwellian Social Credit system, where the government can lock its people out of everything from buying a house, getting a job, going to school, taking a flight or riding public transportation… all because its AI algorithm deemed their behavior out of step with the state. Now some would say… "yeah but that's just in China." Well what happens when Chinese controlled internet blankets half the world? They'd say… "want access to our internet, our economy and our technology… well you gotta play by our rules on our system."

China is currently working on its "Belt and Road" Initiative to effectively recreate the old Silk Road days when China dominated the known world's economy. It currently involves over sixty countries. But whereas the old Silk Road traded in spices and silk, the new one will be dominated by the flows of ones and zeroes. The internet will be the top economic driver going forward, and there is currently a war being raged to see who dominates the flow of information. It used to be a silent war, but the gloves are now coming off.

Forget about all the trade deficit mumbo jumbo. And the tariffs? That's not going to do a dang thing except make things harder for everyone. All of that is smoke and mirrors for what's actually starting right now. President Trump's talk of the trade deficit took most of the media coverage, but the real danger is what he has pointed out about Chinese theft of U.S. company trade secrets. The Chinese government has sanctioned full on state controlled corporate espionage. They're stealing everything they can get their hands on.

It's an all out race to be the global leader in 5G technology.

It's an all out race to be the global leader in 5G technology. 5G will be more than just phone calls and text messages, it'll power literally everything for the next several decades. Cars, homes, medical devices, farm equipment, manufacturing warehouses… everything, and it'll all be wireless. The race to 5G is a national security imperative. It's why we're now seeing the Trump administration make moves that we would have never even dreamed of making in the past. It's why they had a Huawei executive arrested in Canada.

It's why we blacklisted ZTE a few months ago. Both companies are leading China's 5G expansion. These won't be the final moves, it's going to get a lot crazier. This is a war, and - unless you want a Chinese controlled Social Credit system - it's a war we have to win.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
