Glenn: If THIS happens to the dollar, YOUR LIFE will COMPLETELY change

Is the U.S. dollar healthy, or is it currently experiencing a dangerous decline? Carol Roth, financial expert and author of the upcoming book ‘You Will Own Nothing,’ joins Glenn to explain how China — possibly with the help of Saudi Arabia — is ‘working on clawing their way up’ to end the petrodollar. And if that happens, Glenn says, life as you know it in America will be ‘completely different.’ So, in this clip, Carol explains why it’s HUGELY important to have a plan in place in case a dying dollar leads to international chaos…

GLENN: Carol Roth, the author of The War on Small Business and former investment banker who started to use her gifts for the good, instead of the evil, is joining me now. She's also got a new book coming out, the week after mine. And they are great hand-in-glove books. You Will Own Nothing.

Could the dollar get knocked off the top spot, as the world's reserve currency? Challenges are emerging, and history shows, that countries whose currency has dominated the globe, can fall from that global reserve, that top spot, pretty fast, even over the course of a few days. We didn't luck our way into this position. Listen to me carefully, it was a carefully engineered plan that unfolded in the mountains of New Hampshire, nearly 80 years ago. At the time, the British pound sterling, was the international currency. A title it had held for texting. But Bretton Woods changed everything. Now, this is actually -- these are not my words. These are the words of NPR. They just came out with this story. The US dollar conquered the world. Is it at risk of losing its top spot? I know because I've been talking about this for a long time. And everyone has said, that will never happen.

And I said, really? Yes, it will.

And places like NPR have always called me a conspiracy theorist, even though they said that Bretton Woods was a carefully engineered plan that unfolded in the mountains of New Hampshire nearly 80 years ago.

Who is the conspiracy theorist? It doesn't sound like me. It sounds like, if I am, NPR, you are too. But now Carol Roth is with us. Carol, now things are really starting to get serious, because as you said, we are falling ten times the rate than we have since 2003. And countries are getting serious. They -- you know, everybody always said, well, we're the worst -- or, we're the best of the worst. We're still bad.

CAROL: Cleanest shirt in the laundry. Skinniest kid at fat camp. Yes.

GLENN: Well, now the actual skinny kids are showing up at fat camp, and saying, yeah. And we're just getting into shape. And we're just -- we're just -- we're right around the corner. And countries are moving in that direction.

CAROL: So I have to tell you a little thing -- a tale on your Bretton Woods. This carefully crafted strategy.

One of the things I learned in researching You Will Own Nothing was from Jim Rickards. He's a fabulous economist.

GLENN: Great.

CAROL: He told me that you know who really crafted this plan? You know who was really behind this? It was Russia. That basically, Harry Dexter White, who was the negotiator. He was the secretary of the US Treasury. He was the negotiator for the US side.

That he was a Stalinist agent, and the entire plan was to knock Britain off of the pole position. That was the plan. They didn't even sign the agreement. They just hung out. They were there. They hung out in the back room. They didn't sign the agreement.

But our US Treasury Secretary, who was negotiating this, was a Stalinist agent. This has been backed up even on Vox.com. So, again, not conspiracy. I have it very well-cited once Jim told me.

Because it sounds kind of loony, but went back and did the research.

And this was actually Russia's plan that created this. And the entire focus, they didn't care about the US.

They wanted Britain out of that power position, because they felt like that would make them stronger. And I say this and I share this in this discussion, because I think that as history rhymes, we need to keep that in mind. That if there ends up being some sort of a global cabal that comes together, or a war, that there are people that are focused on this.

GLENN: Yes.

CAROL: Right now. It's Russia. It's China. It's China courting Saudi Arabia. And we have issues, not just with reserves, but also that the key piece. Because you asked me this one time offline. It's not just the reserves. The reserves allow us to finance debt cheaply at the government level, and create some arbitrage.

But really what is this pole position as well, is being a huge piece of the payments.

We dominate, dominate. And have not lost ground, by the way, on the payment side. But China.

GLENN: Hang on. You're talking about like the swift payment system.

CAROL: The global payment.

GLENN: Got it. If you talk about SWIFT. SWIFT is this international payment system, that connects the global banks. And says, this is what will happen in terms of global trade, $100 trillion a month goes through SWIFT.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

CAROL: And right now China only has about 2.4 percent of that. So they are working on clawing their way up. They are trying to make deals. They're trying to convince the Saudis to let everybody pay. Including them. Pay for oil and their currency. The yuan. And so obviously, they're kind of really focused on this. There was a China Arab conference last week, the first of -- the first one I think they've been doing for ten years.

And a few things were announced. One, the Bank of China is opening its first branch in Riyadh, which is the Saudi Capitol. And then out of that, I can read you this. I am going to quote this from CNBC.

The Saudi minister said: Saudi Arabia and China are part of a multi-polar world order. And their mutual interests are, quote, strong and rising.

So the Saudis, are playing both sides of this. Right, they don't want to give up, their sort of alliance with the US. But they see the weakness, and they see the weakness coming from our president. But they also see the weakness in terms of the attempted destruction of their own economy.

All of this green nonsense, that's being pushed in the US, and with the other G-7 countries. It threatens their livelihood.

So, of course, they're going to hedge their bets. China is the largest net importer of oil. And on a per capita basis, they use a fraction of what they do here in the US, so there's an opportunity for growth.

GLENN: Well, that's because some people have electricity, and most people have nothing.

CAROL: Exactly. Exactly.

GLENN: Right.

CAROL: So, you know, they are trying to say, you know, we're going to -- yes. We are the ones who said, you could have the petrodollar. And we are the ones who have been plowing our profits back into the Treasury. And you allowed us to do that and hid that fact. But, you know, now, you don't really look as strong as you're used to. So we're going to hedge our bets. And we don't really think you're going to do anything about it.

And this has not only economic implications, Glenn. But obviously military implications as well. Because one of the things that we provided the Saudis for allowing the petro dollar, and we're plowing their dollars back into Treasuries. Is we said, okay. Well, we'll help you out militarily.

Well, guess who is knocking on that door right now. That is China.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. So someone asked me the other day, when do you think -- and I said, nobody could predict this. This could literally happen -- today is Thursday. Monday, you could wake up and the banks would all be closed. And we would be in a dire situation, because I don't know.

We went to Russia -- went to war with Russia overnight. Any big shock could trigger this.
And we might have big shocks that come and go. And we were just kind of coasting there.

We have no idea.

But what people have to really understand is: When it happens, life as you know it, in America, is completely different. Correct?

CAROL: Yeah. I think we've talked about this before. Sort of coming to grips with reality. You don't want to be in that situation. And just be processing that situation if and when it happens. You want to be prepared for it, and say, okay. I've gotten past the shock already.

I kind of expected this day might come. And, hey, I have a plan in place.

Because I know that there will be chaos. You know, you started with Bretton Woods. Once that Bretton Woods agreement was signed. It was something like 15 years, that it took to change out the global financial order, in a way that everything was sort of smoothly operating and the US was fully in that pole position. It didn't just happen one day to the next.

And there was chaos in these transition periods. And sometimes there are transition periods before there's a wholesale change. So you may have these -- these kind of interim periods of chaos.

And certainly, we've seen that domestically. In things like with the banking crisis. And the financial crisis, and the like. But there could be sort of an international chaotic period.

And that's why you really do need to have the diversification, in your portfolio, as well as that personal plan.

What are you doing in your personal life, and in your community. To make sure that something goes awry. And there is this chaos. What are you going to do to make it through that period? Again, this doesn't mean that the dollar is going away. It doesn't mean that the entire US economy collapses forever. It just means that the stakes are shifting. And everybody is telegraphing it. This is one thing I noted, in your upcoming book, Dark Future. I also talked about it, in you will own nothing.

Is the White House has telegraphed this. Joe Biden has said, there is a new world coming. And, quote, unquote, we have to lead that.

Now, of course he was talking to elite business people, so I'm assuming that means him and his friends. But this is not like a conspiracy at all. This is -- you type in Joe Biden, New World Order into Google. You will get tons of search results. We all know this is coming.

GLENN: And you will get from that same speech. As I have it in my book. You take the phrases that are in his speech, you type them out. And you have western leaders and world economic leaders, using exactly the same verbiage.

So they're all aware of something.

But you're not. Because media won't report on it. And anybody who does report on it, will say it's a conspiracy theorist. You're a conspiracy theorist.

It's not. They're all saying it.

CAROL: And you have to say to yourself, okay. The elite and wealthy people in the world know that the financial stakes are shifting. Are they going to just sit back and hope it works out for them?

Of course not. They will do everything in their power to make sure they are molding it and controlling it to whatever standpoint they can. And to make sure they and their cronies come out on top.

And that's where we take the conspiracy element out of it.

It's not so much that they intentionally want to keep you down.

They just want to keep themselves up. And they don't care what happens to you. And if you are at their expense, then so be it.

GLENN: Exactly right. So be it.

PAT: That's really the takeaway. And that's why you need to prepare, and make sure that you do the things, so that you can manage through this chaotic periods. And do everything you can so that you own as much as possible.

And will actually be happy, not the you will own nothing in the end.

GLENN: Right. Carol Roth from CarolRoth.com. If you go to CarolRoth.com/Glenn, you can find out more of her work and follow her.

She's really, really good.

She writes for TheBlaze, among other places. And she's written a new book called you will own nothing.

It will release July 18th. You can find it at CarolRoth.com. Or you can go to Amazon. I will tell you, when you buy my book or her book, it usually is. These people who bought this book, also bought that one.

They go hand in hand.

Mine is dark future. It is coming out a week before hers.

Mine is a -- much more of a, how this is going to control. And what their plan really is.

Carol is so much better than I am.

Of taking all of those plans, and saying, here's what you need to know, to do.

This is how you can save yourself.

And it's -- it's a fantastic book. You can get it, wherever books are sold.

Again, it is You Will Own Nothing, by Carol Roth, and my book at the same time. Dark Future.

Same topic. Not a lot of -- I shouldn't say that. I was going to say, not a lot of the same information.

Just presented in different ways. One to warn, one to say, here's how you protect yourself.

And Carol is great. Thank you so much, Carol. Appreciate it.

CAROL: Thank you so much. And, by the way, Glenn. Thank you so much. You are the number one endorsement on the back of the book.

I so appreciate it.

GLENN: Will you send me a copy?

CAROL: We sent it to you. We sent it to you. So you should have it any day. This is early release copy, because Glenn was so instrumental. You were the first person that I emailed. And I said, this is what I'm thinking. And you pushed me to go deep. And connect all these dots. So I'm just so grateful you to. And so grateful for Dark Future. And those being companion pieces together.

GLENN: Yeah, Carol, thank you. God bless.

Why Conservatives Need 'Indoctrination Centers' | Liz Wheeler | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 196

Liz Wheeler, host of “The Liz Wheeler Show,” wants everyone to know that our children are being attacked by “forces of Marxism.” It’s NOT an exaggeration, and her new book, “Hide Your Children: Exposing the Marxists Behind the Attack on America’s Kids,” shows exactly how the far Left has the nation’s youngest citizens in its crosshairs — especially within America’s public schools. In this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” Wheeler joins Glenn to outline exactly where these attacks are taking place. Plus, they discuss why Planned Parenthood recently has become a major force in the trans rights movement, the woke villainization of white, Christian men, and the biggest misconceptions regarding AI (artificial intelligence).

GOP & Fox News Are DEAD: Glenn Beck Reacts to 'WORST' Presidential Debate | Glenn TV | Ep 307

Were there ANY winners at the second GOP presidential debate hosted by Fox Business and Univision? Glenn calls it “the worst debate of my lifetime” and reveals who was the REAL loser. BlazeTV hosts Stu Burguiere, Steve Deace, and Pay Gray join with their raw reactions to candidates North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and former Vice President Mike Pence. All hosts agree the candidates failed to provide the conservative base with a real conversation, especially since many of the questions could have been asked by MSNBC. They also address the bizarre appearance of Fox moderator Dana Perino introducing Hillary Clinton at a recent Clinton Global Initiative Event. And what about the elephant NOT in the room? Was Donald Trump, who chose striking UAW workers over debating candidates, the only winner? With the leading GOP candidate facing 91 felony indictments, Steve Deace says, “This is how we do assassination in America today" and that it’s vital we choose a strong second-place nominee … FAST.

THESE are the parts of the government Glenn would LOVE to SHUT DOWN

THESE are the parts of the government Glenn would LOVE to SHUT DOWN

The United States is once again on the verge of a government shutdown, but should Congress cave and pass a continuing resolution to spend a lot more money and save us all ... or do we not need saving? Glenn reviews what would actually happen under a government shutdown and which agencies we should probably shut down anyways. Maybe we need "15 Days to Slow the Spending."

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: All right. So here's what we have to do this weekend, beginning tonight at midnight, if we don't sign the CR, and continuing resolution, which will give just a buttload of money. Just keep spending, exactly like you were spending last year, and no real accountability for any of it.

And we have to add some more for a war.

If we don't sign that by tonight, we have to shut the government down. Pat Gray is joining us.

What will you do as of 12:01, tonight.

PAT: Well, Stu gave me a suggestion. Because I was confused what I would do when I came in. What am I going to do? What was your suggestion that I should do? Now, this is in the eventuality, of a government shutdown.

GLENN: Okay. Are you well read enough, to give a recommendation?

STU: I mean, I would be concerned if I was going to be held to some legal standard.

GLENN: Right. Because you're not not an expert.

STU: I'm not an expert. But I was thinking you could continue living your life exactly the same way.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Oh. Well, that's weird. What about the catastrophe that is -- what about that?

STU: Yeah. You would -- in this particular scenario. It's a fictional scenario, at some level.

GLENN: Okay. You're not a doctor. I think this is dangerous.

STU: What were the things you were going to do?

PAT: Do those things.

STU: The things you weren't going to do, don't do those.

PAT: It's crazy talk.

GLENN: All right. Hang on a second. Here's what's going to happen. Here's what's going to happen, okay? This is from the O and B. The Office of Management & Budget.

And they have now released the contingency plan.

So here's what's going to happen.

Now, please don't panic.

But economic indicators like the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobs report could -- could be delayed. This month.

PAT: Don't say that.

GLENN: Yes.

The federal mediation and conciliation service, which is charged with promoting labor management cooperation.

PAT: They'll still have that, right?

GLENN: Well, yes. Yes.

PAT: Good.

GLENN: However, they would have to cut back in its -- they won't close. But they'll have to cut back in some of the things they do.

And this all amid the strike with the auto workers.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: What are the unions and the -- and the -- you know, the plants going to do? Without federal officials. They'll never be able to do anything.

PAT: No, they won't.

STU: And the thing is, we're so a used to high efficiency from the government. That when you lose that -- society --

PAT: It all goes sideways.

GLENN: Time to throw everyone a bone here, so you don't panic. The Federal Reserve activity will be unaffected. So they can still raise the interest rates on November 1st, no matter what happens.

PAT: Good.

STU: Great.

GLENN: The Federal Trade Commission, however, would stop the vast bulk of its competition and consumer protection investigation.

PAT: You can't be serious.

GLENN: I am serious.

They have -- the vast bulk of them, would just stop.

STU: So some of them would continue?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: But the vast bulk of them -- what percentage does that translate to?

GLENN: Don't know. Vast bulk.

This is from the O&B.

The Security and Exchange Commission, will not review or improve registrations from investment advisers, broker dealers, transfer agents, rating organizations. Investment companies. And municipal advisers.

They're not going to be able to -- if you try to register --

PAT: At the SECC.

GLENN: You won't -- you won't be able to do it.

STU: What is that? For a new fund? Or something? New rating. A two-week process probably?

PAT: What about the FDIC? Do you have information on the FDIC?

GLENN: No, they still do not have all of the -- they're scrambling for this information.

STU: They didn't see this coming.

GLENN: Now, again, to give you some good news.

The IRS has not released this plan for the potential shutdown. However, previous plans have said that the IRS would use funds from Joe Biden's Inflation Reduction Act.

STU: Oh, good.

GLENN: To keep employees paid and working.

PAT: Thank heaven.

GLENN: And the union representing the IRS workers are saying, new plans are being discussed, that would involve some furloughs. However, businesses and individuals, who requested that six-month extension for your tax return in April. You will still be required to file by April 16.

PAT: Well, of course, you would.

STU: Yeah. By what date? October 16th. I was going to say, I thought I had more time.

GLENN: Yeah. Emergency relief is going to be a problem. A shutdown would create increased risk, that FEMA, their relief funds, could be depleted.

So there's a risk, that their funds could be depleted. If large additional catastrophic disasters occur. During the shutdown.

STU: Now, of course, they would very easily pass funding for that almost immediately. But still, we should deny that that would happen.

We will deny that any of these people will get their money afterward.

We all know they will retroactively pay off all of this stuff anyway. It will be a vacation for many people.

PAT: They've already done that. For many people. So, yeah. Sure.

GLENN: For those of you concerned about, hey. What about my energy?

What about the environment?

This is what this Draconian shutdown is going to do.

PAT: Thank you, Republicans.

GLENN: The interior department, which does all of the designing for the Capitol building, and the interiors, and pick out the drapes.

Oh, no. Apparently, it doesn't do that. The department of interior, will retain limited discretion to use permits for energy projects on federal lands and waters, when user fees are attached.

So they'll -- they'll retain just limited discretion, to issue those permits. You know, for drilling, and things like that.


PAT: They don't have full discretion.

GLENN: No. Not during a shutdown.

PAT: During a shutdown. Oh, no.

GLENN: A funding lapse would paralyze -- to develop would require environmental analysis for all energy projects. Highways. And other infrastructure.

The EPA, may be able to continue some IRA-funded activities.

As well as other attempted works such as settlement-funded cleanup at some Superfund sites.

PAT: Let's hope that is the case.

GLENN: Now. The White House is warning, most EPA led inspections at hazardous waste sites, as well as drinking water at chemical facilities, it's got to stop.

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: So your drinking water. Could go completely -- it will stop.

PAT: It will turn to mud this weekend.

GLENN: Well, by Sunday. Maybe Monday.

The Energy Information Administration, which publishes snapshots of the US oil inventory.

It will continue to collect and publish data on schedule. But they say, at least initially.

At least initially. Our nuke sites are going to be maintained. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, however, will stop all licensing of new nuclear facilities.

PAT: Oh, there's so many of those going up too.

Because, I mean, we did the last one in 1978. And bang.

GLENN: This is going to stop.

PAT: Well, there's no new ones.

GLENN: But it will stop.

STU: This was the week. This was the week it would happen.

PAT: And now, thanks to you, MAGA Republicans.

GLENN: Right. Now transportation and travel.

Travelers could face delays as air traffic controllers and transportation security administration officers.

PAT: That will continue.

GLENN: Will be working without pay.

PAT: But without pay.

GLENN: Yeah. So people will --

PAT: I mean, they really are not. They will be paid. Just maybe not time.

GLENN: Right. Which is a hassle.

PAT: It is a hassle. I won't deny that.

GLENN: It is a hassle. However, Amtrak, they will keep transporting those 12 passengers. They will just keep going.

PAT: Is Ange going to continue to tell stories, about how many miles Joe Biden has traveled on the train.

Will he be there? Even in death, as he was when he told the story to Joe Biden?

GLENN: I don't know.

Now, passport and Visas will still be issued.

PAT: I thought those would be delayed. But they're not going to?

GLENN: Efforts to defend the nation and conduct ongoing military operations, will continue.

PAT: Right.

STU: That's good.

GLENN: Burials and tours, at Arlington National Cemetery would continue.

STU: Did anybody doubt, they would stop burying the bodies.

They'll just pile up, until we open up the government.

GLENN: COVID-19, response research including vaccine and therapeutic development by the US government will continue.

PAT: Will continue.

GLENN: The National Institute of Health, might have to postpone clinical trials for diseases like cancer or Alzheimer's, according to the White House. So this may throw him from solving cancer.

We were so close to him coming through with his promise of curing cancer, but it's the damn Republicans.

STU: We can actually check that at any point. If you go to, HasJoeBidenCuredCancer.com.

GLENN: Can you check that real quick? We're really close.

STU: Has Joe Biden cured cancer?

No. Cancer still exists as of today.

GLENN: Food stamps for low income people. The disabled, and others could be delayed.

There's no excuse for that. There's no excuse for that.

That is just to trot out the downtrodden.

The people that just say, look at what's happening. If the IRS can stay open, food stamps can stay open. Social Security checks will be delivered. Applications for benefits processed. However, people will not be able to verify benefits or replace cards.

Most national parks will be closed. The Smithsonian and the National Gallery of Art may close.

PAT: Don't say that.

GLENN: Cemeteries. Monuments. Visitor centers. Worldwide housed under the American Battle Monuments submission, will close.

STU: So are they -- and you said the national parks will close.

That means that many of these open field areas, will -- will not be opened?

GLENN: Yeah. They will -- they will build some fences around those things.

STU: Are they -- we don't seem capable of building fences.

GLENN: They're closed.

But I will tell you, you know they're big on the blue.

They will just be -- I make sure you're out there.

And you enforce that law.

You have somebody coming into the national park.

We don't have bathrooms that are open.

No. What are they going to do, poop in the woods, what kind of animals do you think we are?

PAT: Well, we're animals that poop.

STU: Sometimes -- sometimes that works. At least for many, many centuries.

The Capitol Police will not get paid under this.

PAT: What!

STU: They will -- they will --

PAT: They're under assault again. Just as they were during the insurrection.

STU: By the same people. The extreme MAGA Republicans.

PAT: You're exactly right.

By the same people.

STU: Now they'll get their number later. But for now, they won't get paid.

Except, for them. Unlike thousands and thousands of other federal workers, they actually will still have to do a job.

Most of the federal workers that will get all their money and then not have to do their job for however long this takes.

Which is a terrible, terrible --

GLENN: Just -- I -- I am in. I am in.

I mean, I think we should take a vote, who wants to open it back up?

I think 15 days, to slow the curve of spending. Fifteen days. Let's just do that.

Let's meet again in 15 days. And see if we can open the government up.

STU: We probably --

GLENN: Well, we might. We might.

Fifteen days, to slow the curve of spending.

PAT: And then after that, 30 days are up. After 15, then the 30. We might need another 18 bucks after that.

GLENN: Well, I don't know -- I don't know if the government will survive that.

You know, it may not survive that. Of course, the American people did it for a year.

STU: Yeah, and they don't care about them surviving.

GLENN: No. Nobody really cared about them surviving.

STU: Can I also say too, we talk about these big government cuts that we should do. We think there are things to do, to make the government smaller, and more like it was supposed to be. You know, a limited government.

GLENN: Yeah. We're not talking about any of those, I want you to know.

STU: But maybe we are. You know, haven't they unintentionally identified all the cuts here. Haven't they just said, hey, whatever we're going to just stop doing, the unnecessary parts of the government that can just shut down.

GLENN: You mean those nonessential?

STU: Yeah. The nonessential stuff, we stop doing. And the essential stuff, we stop doing. And we'll go from there. We'll talk about, maybe we need to add this back in. Maybe we can get rid of this other thing.

But isn't that a good starting point? Whatever you say is nonessential, I promise you we should not be doing it.

GLENN: I'm not sure of that. I mean, you know, we're talking about --

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah.

We're talking about things like the interior department.

Just having limited discretion to issue permits.

STU: So there will be still issuing permits. But they will have limited vegetation.

Maybe we shouldn't be doing so much permitting. Maybe people should be able to do a lot of the things they want to do.

But if there are certain needs for certain permits. Then the limited permitting might just cover that.

GLENN: Well, you go ahead. While we're all drinking poison by next Wednesday.

Just from our tap, from our homes. While sludge, nuclear waste.

Syringes are pouring out from our kitchen sink.

PAT: So syringes might pour out of our taps?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: How do they get around the curves?

GLENN: Are you an expert?

STU: No.

GLENN: Are you a doctor?

STU: I'm not a doctor.

GLENN: I am. Let's move on. Very dangerous.

Keep going, Republicans. Keep going.

Do not buckle.
