That chill in the air isn't winter coming, it's a 2008 like crash

Something's coming, and I haven't felt what I'm feeling right now since 2007. And really, we all could tell something just wasn't quite right back in the years leading up to the 2008 financial crash. Everyone was defaulting on their mortgages, entire neighborhoods were ghost towns, paychecks were low, but for some reason all the top banks were telling us it was all ok. "Keep borrowing and spending!!" they said. And as we head into 2019, I'm feeling that very same chill in the air.

Here's a number no one at the Fed or any of the big banks want you to know about: 250 trillion. That's what global debt is right now. The number is almost incomprehensible. It shatters all previous global debt records. And the Fed and all the big banks don't want you to know this number because it is all their fault. The world's current economic growth - and the reason for why they say we "recovered" from 2008 - was financed by something that is called "debt-financed economic growth."

In layman's terms that means that the governments of the world needed you to keep spending - even though we didn't have any money - so they printed money so the banks could hand out loans like tic tacs. Loans that would eventually have to be accounted for, but they didn't worry about at the time… "JUST GO OUT AND SPEND!" During the 2018/2019 fiscal year alone, over one trillion of dollar denominated debt is set to mature. How much of that will default?

Duke University just completed a survey of 212 Chief Financial Officers at some of the largest corporations in the United States. 48% are predicting the next recession to hit sometime in the next 12 months. But if we somehow make it through 2019 without recession hitting, 82% of the leading CFOs in the country believe recession will be here by the end of 2020. The leading minds at our biggest corporations are giving us only twelve to twenty-four months.

The survey didn't just predict recession for the United States, this will be a global economic spasm.

And here's where it gets even scarier, the survey didn't just predict recession for the United States, this will be a global economic spasm. They predict Canada's economy to get hit especially hard, with all of Europe, Asia and South America following as well.

But, just as in 2008, the banks don't want you knowing this information. "Just keep borrowing and spending! Nothing to see here!!" Don't get taken by surprise like we did ten years ago. Start planning today.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
