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.

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?
