Glenn: How YOU should prepare as the price of EVERYTHING rises

The prices of used cars are skyrocketing, with interest rates nearly double what they were just a few years ago. But, as you already know, it’s not just used cars. The cost of EVERYTHING is rising, and it seems like that’s exactly what global elites — like those at the World Economic Forum — WANT to happen. So what should you do? Watch this clip for Glenn’s advice on what you should begin preparing NOW.


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I want to talk to you about what is coming. What you need to prepare for. So you can change the way you spend money, and let me give you some information that will help you understand, how to navigate and know what is real, or what is not.

You keep hearing that -- that credit cards are going gangbusters, everybody is fine. And default rate, blah, blah, blah.

You're hearing a lot of that, and a lot of that will be based on American Express. Why should you not look at the stats of American Express?

Do you know, Stu?

STU: No. American Express that demands that you pay it off. So generally speaking, it is people who have more money. They don't care an American Express.

But more importantly, American Express, your FICA score is between 40 and 60 points higher, to be able to get just a regular green card American Express, over Discover or Capital One. Okay? So you're not looking at the riskiest ones. Okay?

STU: Right.

GLENN: And when you look at the riskiest ones, Capital One, they have been taking, you know -- some crime borrowers. People who are living on the edge. And living on their credit card. Those are Discover cards. And Capital One cards.

Generally speaking.

Well, Capital One is turning off the spigot of credit. In a lot of places. They've just begun doing this. Their loss is up year over year.

$1.4 billion. They've just had to write off this year.

Okay? Because people failed.

Their charge-offs, for both of them, have gone from one and a half percentage points, to four percentage points.

And we're in an economy that our leaders are telling us, is good. It's healthy.

It's growing. It's wonderful.

STU: But what did Biden say about it?

It's -- God, what was it? It was a half swear. I can't remember what it was. Smart as hell. That's what it was. Or strong as hell. This economy is strong as hell.

GLENN: If this is strong as hell, who is it strong as hell for? You know the answer to that. The rich.

It is getting harder and harder for the people at the bottom end.

You will have nothing, and you will be happy. It's the promise from the World Economic Forum. By 2030, you will be happy, owning nothing.

Now, I don't know how that is possible, in a society set up around ownership. The reason why ownership is so important in America, is because that's the way you can hold on to wealth, and grow wealth. By buying your own home.

Not your car. But by buying assets and owning things that increase in value. That's how we have lifted the poor class, into the middle class.

And the middle class into an upper class.

That is unique, and really, truly very American.


But you take that ownership, how are you going to save money?

How are you going to grow money?

Okay. Now, let me take you to the cars. People just a few years ago, if you went to buy a used car. It was seven to $15,000. Average. Okay?

It is now 20 to $25,000 for a used car. What has changed?

Well, the Wuhan virus changed everything. That collapsed the supply chain. You can't get the supply chain back on track. So we're still short cars. That makes your used car more expensive. So that's why you've gone from at the top $15,000 to now 25,000.

The top of average. It's gone up. Ten grand. Has your salary gone up? Has your savings gone up?

Has your -- I mean, with inflation.

That's real dollar. That's not inflation. That's real dollars. Inflation is on top of that.
Why are we paying so much money for everything?

Well, one of the reasons is, we're no longer leading the world. We are intentionally hobbling ourself with oil and gas prices. They're not refilling the strategic oil reserve, because President Biden says it's still too high. Well, you know what, you may be in a war that you are creating right now, President Biden.

What do you say, you bite the bullet, because you don't seem to have a problem spending money everywhere else, and fill our national strategic supply back up.

We're intentionally shooting our feet. So gas prices go up.

Which makes people think, okay. Well, they're getting rid -- they're getting rid of the gas car. Everybody is going to electric. Maybe I should buy an electric car. Well, electric cars are expensive. They're new and expensive.

Okay. Plus, your energy costs are going up.

The more you build, the more people buy electric cars, the higher your energy price. The higher your electricity bill. Who is paying for that?

How do I afford that? On top of my brand-new car? You can't.

And if you could afford a new car, you're paying full sticker, if not above.

And, you know what, I have to buy something. So I'll buy a used car, at an unbelievable price.

Now, let's look at the price to borrow the money for that car. Okay.

So on average, we have gone from 3.6 as your rate to borrow money for a car. 3.6.

The average now is 6.8. Okay?

That's a lot of money over the lifetime, just in the last year. That's an additional $2,000 you have to pay for your car. But that's if you have good credit. If you're subprime, subprime is as high as -- with insurance 26 percent. That's loan shark stuff. You'll never, ever, ever pay for that car. You'll never get out of that.

So what are you going to do? So now people are losing their cars, because our repossession of cars is now higher than it was at the peak of the financial crisis of '08. And we're in an economy that is strong as hell.

It's not working for the average person. I hate trickle-down economics. It's clear you do. Because nothing is trickling down. Have you noticed that?

Nothing is trickling down. Because you're not giving any incentives for people to invest in anything.

You are dictating what technologies and everything else, that you're going to invest in, as the United States government.

And you're going to have and tell the banks, what they should invest in.

The rest of us are holding on, going, I don't know what's going on tomorrow.

And we're already doing that, because of technology. We have no idea, what technology is going to do to any of our jobs.

So do I invest in a new factory? Do I wait for a couple of years? There's no incentive to build a factory here.

I don't know what the energy costs are going to be. So there is no trickle down. This is society without trickle down.

The rich just keep getting richer. And you're not seeing any of it. None of it.

So here's the thing that I -- I want you to be prepared for: And that is helping each other out.

Being prepared with your food.

With your energy. Don't go out and blow your money on stupid stuff.

Everything that they are telling you in the media, that we're strong as hell, is not true.

Have you heard anyone talk about Saudi Arabia getting rid of the petrodollar?

Have you seen that anywhere, Stu?

STU: No.

GLENN: Okay. How could that possibly be?

How can the Saudis say?

Yeah, we'll take any kind of money. That is the United States of America going off the gold standard, to replace gold with the petrodollar. We said our dollar is the only way you can buy oil. And that's what kept the dollar sound. Well, now wait a minute, if that's no longer true, what's keeping of our dollar sound? And why hasn't there been any discussion of this?

Why isn't anyone talking about something, that is going to affect you, your future, your children?

Your debt. Your job. Your medicine. Everything is going to be affected by that. And yet, nobody has told you anything, about it.

I just find it curious. That the leaders of expense, are the things that the great reset is trying to get rid of.

Car, worth a fortune. If you hadn't emptied our strategic oil reserve, fuel would be through the roof. Just like it is everywhere else.

Meat, you know, they don't want you eating meat. Have you seen? It will go up another 15 percent this year. Have you heard that stat?

Chicken? God help us with chicken. Did you see what happened with Connecticut this week? One of the chicken producers burned to the ground. 100,000 chickens gone. What is that going to do to the price of chicken?

All of the things that they say, they want to eliminate or change. All of those things going through the roof.

Can't get fertilizer. Can't get fertilizer.

Why? Well, Russia makes most of the fertilizer that we would use. Oh, okay. So let's go pick a war, with Russia.

And I want to talk to you about the war with Russia. Because that's another thing that doesn't make sense.

Batten down the hatches. Do your own homework.

Look at, where do you have your dollars? If you have anything.


Why a Trump indictment would make America a BANANA REPUBLIC

What is the far-left accusing Donald Trump of NOW? And will the former president truly be indicted? If so, what does this mean for America’s future? Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus and author of ‘Get Trump,’ joins Glenn to explain why this latest move from the far-left is ‘destroying the rule of law in America.’ He explains the exact charges the left intends to pit against Trump this time around, and why — if they’re successful — it could send our nation towards becoming a banana republic…


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Mr. Alan Dershowitz. How are you, sir?

ALAN: I am doing great. I wish the country were doing great. I think the impending prosecution of Donald Trump will destroy the rule of law, in America. Which is why I wrote my book, get Trump.

Because that's what they're doing. They're focusing on a person rather than a crime.

You know, the Torah, the Bible one, don't take bribes. That's obvious.

The other is do not recognize faces. Do not do justice based on who the person is. That's a problems in the Bible. That's a prohibition in the constitutionally. it's a prohibition into the rule of law.

And yet, the district attorney of Manhattan, ignoring previous district attorneys. Ignoring the US attorney's office. The Justice Department. Is going after a made-up crime. A crime that does not exist. It's part of the bet Trump.

And if you want to protest get Trump. Michael get Trump.

That will send a message, that will approve of that.

GLENN: Which a few years ago, it would have happened. But I don't think they're going to do it this time. Because we know this federal government. This Justice Department, does not protect the lawful gathering of American citizens to speak their voice.

We also are concerned about, is that an FBI guy, who is trying to get the crowd all whipped up into a frenzy?

I mean, we don't believe our rights are protected as an average citizen anymore. That's a frightening place to be in America.

ALAN: And it's not only the Justice Department. It's the New York City the attorney general of New York ran on the campaign of get Trump. That's where I I got the title of my book from. Her campaign, get Trump. Promise to get Trump no matter what. Constitutionally be damned. The Bill of Rights be damned. get Trump. That's the most important thing, to stop him from realizing. Of course, the irony is constitutionally provides for only, you know, a hand handful for bases for running. You have to be against the North.

And you have to have been been born in America. And he satisfies all of that criteria. So stibbling run.

And this may backfire on Democrats who are abusing the law to get Trump.

And I hope that does. And I hope that maybe the district attorney will listen to reason. And will not indict him.

You know, justice Jackson once said, that any prosecutor can rummage among the hundreds of statutes that you have. And try to find something against anybody. Not just Trump. Not just Hillary Clinton.

But you and me. And your uncle Charlie and grandson. They can find something. And if this prosecution is allowed to go forward, and culminate in the conviction. It will mean that they will start making crimes up against the average person, who they don't like.

GLENN: Can you -- can you take us through this at all, Alan.

Because people will say, okay. I don't think you should be paying hush money. Is that illegal? What charges are they so that we don't

ALAN: Sure. It's never been done before, number one. So they're charging him with a misdemeanor. Misdemeanor six years ago. They are trying to turn the misdemeanor into a felony, by saying that the reason he paid, quote, hush money. It wasn't hush money. But the reason he settled the case was to help his campaign, rather than to avoid embarrassment with his wife and his family. his children, et cetera.

They're not going to be able to a prosecutor can a little grandly Jill to indict a ham sandwich.

And in New York, you can do probably get a petit jury to change sandwich, as long as his name is Trump.

So there is a possibility that he will get indicted and get convicted. I think it will reverse on appeal. in making up crimes. This is making up crime.

So they say that he paid the hush money, in order to help his campaign. And therefore, the payment was a campaign contribution.

It's never been done before. They tried it once before, on candidate Edwards. And it was a much, much stronger case. And, of course, they lost in front of a jury.

But it's never been tried since. And that was a federal crime.

This is a state crime. And it's a shame that a district attorney would abuse justice so greatly. And it endangers justice for all of us.

GLENN: So, Alan, where is anyone?

When we get to a place to where we're taking out our opponents.

I mean, I spoke to Mike Lee about this. With Hillary Clinton. And what was going on with Hillary Clinton. And he said, Glenn, once you start going after an opponent, you become a banana republic, the republican is just over.
because the retribution. The other side will say, oh, we're playing that? once said, well, my friends everything. For my enemies, the law. The law.

And that's what will happen.

And senator Lee is right. Senator Lee's father is a good friend of mine. We clerked technology on the United States Supreme Court. And Lee is a Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton guy. And he's right, we don't want to be a banana republic on either side.

GLENN: So my question to you is: Where are the classical liberals?

Where are the people that don't like Donald Trump? But will stand up and say, this is about principle here?

SPEAKER ONE: Well, you're talking to them. I'm the last standing, oh, I may have a handful of colleagues.

But where are the civil liberties union people?

Where are people who are supposed to care more about our liberty than they do about partisan politics?

They have disappeared. They're not there.

And that's not why I'm the one writing the books now. Get Trump. I'm the one who is trying as a liberal Democrat. As I said over and over again.

I voted for Trump twice. I have a constitutional right to vote and don't stop me from doing that. Don't stop me from making the disquisition run, formal president.

That is banana republic. And we're moving toward that. And it has to stop. And there's no mechanism.

You know, in California, there was a mechanism. You could withdraw and remove the district attorney. And if New York had a Republican attorney, they would be removing the district attorney.

But the democratic and no recall improvements district attorney gets his way. And there will probably be an indictment. I don't know if it will be tomorrow or not. I don't know if they'll do a pepper strengthen Donald Trump's base. People will be so angry with them. I've got call you wills from people. look, we're oops. We were plan oops we were planning to vote for Nikki Haley. But we'll vote for Trump. Because that's the and weaponization of the law.

You know, I have a better form of protest. Buy my book. Then you don't have to vote for Trump.

But it is -- it will backfire. Now, will it backfire in New York?

Probably not. he gets his 15 minutes of fame.

Even if it's reversed on appeal. He'll say, oh, that's not my fault.

I indicted him. I convicted him. Vote for me. We're the only country, did you know this, the only country in the western hemisphere? The only country among Democrats that elect prosecutors. Elect prosecutors. And every other country, they are civil service jobs.

And they are not subject to -- for the whims of political fortunes.

But we have elected prosecutors. And prosecutors prosecute people, based on how much good it will do them in the next election. And there's something very wrong with that.

GLENN: Well, the whole system, I've said, have you tried plugging it back in to factory is that we told them to happen. It is so dirty all the way through.

So -- so, Alan, what should the -- besides biker book, what should the American people be doing right now?

ALAN: Well, we should be protesting. I don't call for people going out on the streets. But I do call for people to write to their senators and congressmen, the New York authorities, evangelizing shows like yours, which have a big impact on national opinion. And making sure that we're not silent about this. We have to speakable out. And your message is as clear as can be. Where are the civilian Libertarians? Where are the people saying, look, I'm in favor of Biden. I will vote for him.

I don't like Trump. But I don't like the way he's

SPEAKER SEVEN: That's the American way. The American way is to protest. for a redress of grievances.

That's in the First Amendment.

And we have to all take advantage of that. We do have a double standard of justice in America today.

I'm representing one of the young men on January 6th. He's a law school student. He was denied the opportunity to graduate. Even though he was a top student.

Because he went to the capital, to and then he was waved into the capital by police. We have videotape showing it.

Yet he's problematical formal a felony.

Whereas, the people who destroyed property and hurt people, in various parts of the country, following the George Floyd murder, weren't being prosecuted.

Were they do ways. sole that means no standards.


Swimmer EXPOSES ‘emotional blackmail’ within trans athlete debate

Riley Gaines, former University of Kentucky swimmer and a 12-time NCAA all-American athlete, refuses to stay quiet about transgender athletes competing in women’s sports — no matter how much backlash she may receive. She joins Glenn to detail why ‘people are scared’ to speak out, the ‘emotional blackmail’ some athletes receive when they do, and why allowing trans athlete to compete in women’s sports creates a dangerous ‘slippery slope.’ Plus, Gaines gives invaluable advice to those who may be in a similar situation she was once in, but who may be afraid to take a stand and speak the truth…


Why the 'Anti-Woke Crusader' Is Running for President | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 177

America is suffering from a national identity crisis, and Vivek Ramaswamy has ideas about how to save it. He recently announced his bid for the 2024 presidential election as a Republican, which left many asking why the “Anti-Woke Crusader” decided it’s time to run for the nation’s top office. But he’s no stranger to the job of CEO, and he tells Glenn that’s exactly how he’d run the country. Americans are hungry for meaning, faith, and an identity to be proud of. So, Vivek keeps his ideas based on truths: family, God, and citizenship. Vivek sits down to discuss some of the biggest challenges to truth that America is facing, including China, Big Tech, and AI. He wants to replace the World Economic Forum’s “stakeholder capitalism” with “excellence capitalism.” And he believes the best way to accomplish all this is to break from the elites to speak directly to the people. This episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is part of a series leading up to the 2024 election. These interviews come with no agenda. The point is to ask all of the candidates all the questions that people need to ask.


Biden's daughter-in-law Hallie paid CHINESE CASH ... for WHAT?

Records revealed that yet another Biden family member — President Biden's daughter-in-law, Hallie Biden — got cash from a Chinese company back in 2017. But she's not the only one. Glenn asks what she and this other mysterious "Biden" did to get this money and whether it's really just a coincidence that so many Bidens have accepted checks from companies with ties to the Chinese Communist Party. And Glenn also reviews some very sketchy energy stories coming out of not just China, but Ukraine ...
