THE DOCUMENTS for 'Civil War: The Left's Election-Night War Game'

If you watched tonight's show, I hope you took notes, because you need to be prepared for what's coming on election night. We're going to look into the future. Everything I'm about to show you was planned out in advance. As I've been laying out over the past couple of weeks, members of the Obama Administration and State Department wrote the playbook for Color Revolution in the streets. We've seen it play out over the past 3 years, and it culminates on November 3rd.

WATCH: Civil War: The Left's Election-Night War Game

I truly hope none of this happens, but there's no getting around the fact that multiple scenarios have been game planned for election night. There are 7 pillars in a Color Revolution and the first four I previously covered were all about the set up, but now I'm going to show you what they have planned for the execution. As I've been pointing out for over a year now regarding Ukraine, everything always comes back to the relationship between high ranking Democrats and George Soros.

This document serves as Doc Brown's Delorian. It's the left's election night playbook prepared by an organization called The Transition Integrity Project. Its founder is a woman named Rosa Brooks. She's a law professor and columnist that actually worked for the Pentagon from 2009 to 2011. And it should be no surprise that one of her old bosses was... George Soros. I mean, it's almost laughable at this point how blatant they are.

This is an email that was part of the Podesta hack revealed by Wikileaks. Brooks emailed Podesta, referencing a meeting they both attended with George Soros. She ended with an offer of help:

Let me know if there is anything I can do to be helpful to you and Jake.

"Jake" is Jake Sullivan, who worked for Joe Biden when he was vice president, Hillary Clinton, and is now back with Biden as part of his team. So here we have Brooks and the Transition Integrity Project, who claim to be TOTALLY non-partisan, attending big-wig meetings with Democrats at George Soros' house, and offering their help to both John Podesta and Jake Sullivan. Was producing the Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election and Transition document part of that support?

I showed you last week that the left used that research to wargame everything they're planning to do on election night. The organization that convened the wargame was a group called Fight Back Table, convened, organized and paid for by George Soros.

Again, they don't even try to hide it. This is Soros' organization, Democracy Alliance, where they proudly boast that Fight Back Table is their initiative.

This is entirely a Soros run operation here. His former employee, who still attends high level meetings with both him and top Democrats, wrote the playbook, and Soros' organization sponsored the wargame.

The event was split between two sides: Team Trump and Team Biden. Take note of some of the participants because you're sure to hear from them on November 3rd.

On the "GOP" side, attendees included people like Bill Kristol and former RNC chairman Michael Steele.

That right there should tell you everything you need to know about the Lincoln Project. Not only are they teaming up with Democrats, they're in league with George Soros for crying out loud!

The "REPUBLICANS" also had the former Kentucky secretary of state Trey Grayson in attendance. Guess what he's been writing op-eds about lately?

Yeah... how mail-in-voting is so crucial this year. The hubris of these people is insane. I don't think I've ever seen such a blatant and obvious conspiracy just laid out there for the entire world to see. It's amazing.

For Team Biden, he was represented by people like John Podesta and the former DNC chairman Donna Brazile. But it also included multiple other participants from various backgrounds:

Other participants included political strategists, JOURNALISTS, polling experts, TECH AND SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERTS, and former career officials from the intelligence community, the Justice Department, the military and the Department of Homeland Security.

I almost don't even know where to start with that. They ALL sound crazy, but let's center in on journalists and social media because that goes directly to pillar number 5:

Enough independent media to inform citizens about the falsified vote.

It's a meme at this point to criticize the mainstream media on their bias.

It's a meme at this point to criticize the mainstream media on their bias. We all know it exists and that they're comfortably in bed with the left. But there's a lot more going on here than just your typical left wing bias. They've entered a new phase. Just look at the cover up over any mention at of what's currently happening.

Newt Gingrich mentioned the holy name "Soros", and immediately got shut down... ON FOX! The New York Times called me a conspiracy theorist for talking about Soros' influence over the media. Where's the conspiracy?!

It's well known that Soros funds David Brock and Media Matters with millions. Brock has bragged that his organization directly influences the media. This is an excerpt from a leaked email released by Wikileaks. They bragged that they conducted:

"over 900 on-the-record and off-the-record media interviews" and sent "80 sets of talking points, background materials and briefings on topical issues, 372 surrogates, including influential and frequent pundits on broadcast and cable news." It also sent "media advisories" and "talking points" to "960 members of the national media and 10,756 regional reporters in 28 states," and to "369 televisions producers and bookers."

Soros has financial ties to more than 30major news organizations.

NPR was even caught by Project Veritas of trying to cover up their relationship with him.

This is how you buy the media and control the narrative. This gives Soros, and the left, the ability to cover up anything they want to.

And speaking of cover up. Did you see this from Vox?

They're actually trying to say that we are the ones setting the stage for revolution. Let me get this straight: If I point out what the left is currently doing... I'm the one at fault?

We're entering a new ballgame with the media. They clearly have their talking points, and you'll see it play out all the way through election night. Did you see how they all pounced last week over the claim that Trump wouldn't commit to a peaceful transition of power?

It's so ridiculous, but almost EVERY mainstream outlet picked it up and ran. They're acting as if Trump said he'd barricade himself in the White House if he lost. That's not what he said! He said there would be a continuation because of all the mail-in ballots. That's literally the same thing the Democrats are saying... they just twisted Trump's response, and it was a total set up question for all of them to immediately jump on.

Look at this from page one of the Transition Integrity Project's report:

The concept of "election night," is no longer accurate and indeed is dangerous. We face a period of contestation stretching from the first day a ballot is cast in mid-September until January 20. The winner may not, and we assess likely will not, be known on "election night" as officials count mail-in ballots.

It's basically the same thing Trump was talking about, but with one key difference: The left isn't concerned at all of fraud surrounding mail-in ballots. Now, in any sane environment, this would probably kick off a few warning bells. Especially when we see things like this.

Or what about the military ballots cast for Trump that were discarded? And these are just stories that dropped over the past few days. There's no telling how bad it's going to get... but the left isn't worried one bit.


If you're curious as to what the media is preparing to do leading up to and on election night, you needn't look further than this piece from the Washington Post over the weekend:

It's abundantly clear that Trump plans to fabricate an election "emergency." First, he claimed mail-in balloting, a tried-and-true system, is fraudulent. Now his supporters are trying to harass in-person voters.

Shooting down all questions regarding the mail-in ballots is priority number one. Media priority number two is framing Trump's attempts to ensure the ballots are legitimate as a constitutional crisis. And priority number three is... well look at this next quote:

Let's be clear. There is only one political party in American politics embracing violence. There is only one side refusing to denounce all political violence.

What world is this intended for?! Republicans have condemned the violence since day one. It was the left that refused to speak out against ANTIFA and BLM. In fact, violence is part of their election night strategy, and blaming it on the right is part of that plan.

Pillar 6 is where preparation turns into action:

A political opposition capable of mobilizing tens of thousands or more demonstrators to protest electoral fraud.

You need a network of fully trained and organized street soldiers to apply the necessary bottom up pressure for any of this to work.

I'm constantly amazed over all the topics I've covered over my career that are now coming back into play the more we research what's happening right now. I remember watching the Arab Spring play out in places like Egypt, and then predicting the coming caliphate and the waves of civil unrest that would eventually make its way here. People laughed it off... there goes crazy Glenn Beck again! But the caliphate came, and now we have rioting in our streets.

We later found out that the Obama State Department was training activists through Civil Society 2.0, and George Soros was working right alongside them.

I remember watching Occupy Wallstreetand thinking there was more to come.

This is the original ad that kicked off Occupy. Notice what they list as their inspiration:

Are you ready for a Tahrir moment?

Tahrir, as in the part of the Arab Spring that toppled the Egyptian Government.

The Arab Spring inspired Occupy, and Occupy would become the inspiration for the national hub of left wing activists... the Action Network.

This is the hub for nearly every major street movement over the past several years.

The Action Network was started by a former John Kerry staffer, named Brian Young, when he was frustrated that Occupy Wallstreet fizzled out.

They had a lot of events, they got a lot of attention for around two months, but then it just kind of faded. A platform like ours could have really kept it alive.

The Action Network is like a new and improved Tides Foundation. They're the focal point, and nearly every other major protest and organizing player in the game revolves around them.

Their address is at 1900 L Street in D.C.

That's also the address of the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the country. Wanna guess where they get their funding?

Yeah... spooky dude.

They also share an address with a group called Change To Win, who are affiliated with both the SEIU and the Teamsters. Huh... isn't that convenient?

But that doesn't even come close to the list of mainstream left wing organizations that the Action Network is tied to.

Their 2018 990 IRS form shows partnerships with both — get this — the National Education Association, the largest union in the country, and the AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in the United States.

I wonder... how many police unions are part of the AFL-CIO? I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that NONE of them realize that they're unwittingly paying dues to an organization that is partnered with The Action Network who is actively organizing events to defund the police.

Try and noodle this one: The AFL-CIO is partnered with Action Network, who is helping to defund the police, and is ALSO hosting petitions for the AFL-CIO to drop police unions. Uhhhhh... conflict of interest?

And as all this is happening at Action Network, guess who just announced a major partnership with them...

The DNC.

I wonder if the DNC knows that Action Network hosts an international ANTIFA defence fund? Totally being rhetorical... I'm pretty sure they know.

Literally all the bases are covered through Action Network. Most of the protests and street movements we see to this very day are being organized through their site. Their partnerships and ties to the largest unions in the country as well as the DNC prove that either the Democrat party is either part of or, at least, condones what's going on.

But I'm not even close to being finished. If you look through the Action Network's site, another big name jumps out.

Multiple entries for Organizing for Action. And who's group is that?

And people actually criticize me for talking about top down bottom up. Obama was building it back in 2008! Back then it was called Obama For America, and it was supposed to be shuddered at the end of Obama's second term. But guess who won the 2016 election and turned everything upside down?

The now renamed Organizing For Action re-launched and set their sites directly on Donald Trump. Again, this is not a conspiracy theory.

The media was reporting on this back in 2017.

Obama is the only former president to remain in Washington D.C. No one in the media thought it was weird. No one in the media pointed out the fact that the former president was remaining to launch an all out assault on his successor.

Obama's little army even produced a "training manual" specifically on how to protest Trump. The manual describes in detail how organizers should flood events in red states to make it appear that Trump was more unpopular than he actually was. It called for "unfavorable exchanges caught on video" and that the goal was to:

Make Republicans, even from safe districts, second-guess their support for the Trump agenda.

Obama's group teamed up with Indivisible to produce the manual.

The material was used in town hall meetings all over the country, sometimes devolving into intimidation and violence. And guess who cheered on Indivisible's campaign to resist Trump?

The Action Network.

We're so far behind on this. It all culminates over the next month. As the founder of Action network recently said:

In some ways, we've just been road testing everything for two years, building up to this moment.

The organization has been built and tested, but the game fully kicks off on November 3rd. We know the future, and we can plan for every step of what they have cooked up... point by point.

Democrats and Republicans from the Lincoln Project — ok so basically all Democrats — wargamed four possible scenarios.

  • Game One: An Ambiguous Result
  • Game Two: A Clear Biden Victory
  • Game Three: A Clear Trump Win
  • Game Four: A Narrow Biden Win

No matter what happens on November 3rd, the left is looking to make gains. It just goes to show you the hypocrisy in the name of this document "Transition Integrity". What they have planned has nothing at all to do with transition integrity. They either want to win, and fundamentally change the country, or — if they lose — they still plan on fundamentally changing the country.

The inspiration for their plans should scare the hell out of you, and it's mentioned on the very first page:

The closest analogy may be the election of 1876, a time of extreme partisanship and rampant disenfranchisement, where multiple states proffered competing slates of electors, and the election was only resolved through a grand political bargain days before Inauguration.

See if this sounds familiar.

In 1876, Republicans controlled both the presidency and the Senate, but Democrats had taken back the House. On election night, the Republican candidate, Rutherford B. Hayes had a slight Electoral College victory, with his opponent leading in the popular vote. In several states, the vote counts were highly disputed.

What followed was the Compromise of 1877. Democrats agreed to concede but only if Republicans would agree to end Reconstruction in the South. Hayes relented, becoming president but opening op Jim Crow Laws in the South. Democrats doing what they do best... revealing their racism and holding people down.

This is their inspiration and it's not a strategy from people that think they're going to win!

Before I go over the 4 scenarios, take a look at some of the things listed as things they are preparing for in advance.

They're organizing a list of a thousand influencers to push the claim that Trump is trying to steal the election. You can expect a heavy dose of Hollywood and social media. On page seven, they're recruiting "moderate Republican Governors" to form their own coalition as well as readying a capital strike and work stoppage to pressure companies.

As I showed you earlier, the left has been busy building a network of street activists for years. On election night, they plan to unleash them. Look at this from page 9:

Team Biden almost always called for and relied on mass protests to demonstrate the public's commitment to a "legitimate" outcome... the possibility for violence will increase significantly.

The classic leftist playbook, but look how they plan on framing it.

President Trump and his more fervent supporters have every incentive to try to turn peaceful proBiden (or anti-Trump) protests violent in order to generate evidence that a Democratic victory is tantamount to "mob rule."

Oh they expect violence, but when it goes down, they'll blame Trump agitators. In what world is this even believable? Who's been responsible for all the violence over the past few months? Are we supposed to believe that the Tea Party will go undercover in black bloc and start chucking molotov cocktails? As ridiculous as this may sound, something like that is exactly the story they'll try and weave.

The first wargame resulted in an utter nightmare. They called it an "Ambiguous Result" with both candidates declaring victory. If the results show both trump and Biden neck and neck, you can expect to see these things happen:

  • Both candidates will declare victory. The Biden campaign immediately deploys their list of one thousand "influencers" to hit the social and mainstream media waves. Now it doesn't mention it here, but what do you want to bet that people like me or Tucker Carlson will get heavily throttled or shadow banned? They'll have a voice... but we won't.
  • The Biden campaign then unleashes what they call their "peaceful rallies", but - as I showed you earlier in the document - they fully expect them to become violent.
  • The left expects Trump to respond by federalizing the National Guard and invoking the Insurrection Act. Tell me… why would he have to do that if what they have planned is "peaceful"?

The game continues with a hypothetical scenario in Michigan where a Trump supporter destroys some ballots, tipping the state for the president. Because of that, the Governor of Michigan decides to send pro-Biden delegates to Washington. So we've got two things of note there: the use of an act of sabotage — something the right is rarely guilty of, but we can't say that about the left — and a state governor defying the results. I'm telling you, they're pulling out every dirty trick in the arsenal... and this was just the first scenario!

Scenario two was somewhat uneventful: A clear Biden victory.

In other words, Biden wins in a blowout. The Democrats think that if this happens that Trump will have no leverage to contest anything. It's actually kind of funny, and you can really see the bias from the Lincoln Project stooges sitting at the table. It actually includes Trump going to Mar-A-Lago to pursue "murky overseas business deals," and launching "MAGA TV." I kid you not. But I think someone should remind them that the king of "murky overseas business deals" is Joe Biden. China? Ukraine? 3.5 million from a corrupt Moscow oligarch? Come on guys...

Game three is what, I think, is most likely what we'll see go down: A clear Trump win.

The scenario assumes Trump takes an Electoral College victory, but loses the popular vote. This is clearly what Democrats think will happen as well. It's why they took inspiration from the election of 1876. Tell me if " transition" is what they're most concerned about here...

Right from the get go, the Biden campaign sends the masses out into the streets. Look how the left frames what happens:

The Trump Campaign planted agent provocateurs into the protests throughout the country to ensure these protests turned violent and helped further the narrative of a violent insurrection.

Rioting and looting will commence, violence will ensue, and who will get the blame? Trump supporters.

Rioting and looting will commence, violence will ensue and who will get the blame? Trump supporters. Get ready because, if everything kicks off as planned, it's going to happen.

The plan then appears to have Biden conceding, but then making a very public retraction:

It capitalized on the public's outrage that for the third time in 20 years a candidate lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College.

This is key for later in the scenario. This has nothing to do with transition integrity, and everything to do with shredding the constitution and our country.

The next stage in the plan has Democrats leveraging their "coalition of governors" to immediately ask for recounts in multiple states. In some of those cases, the governors completely ignore the results and send Biden electors instead.

This is just turn one of the wargame. At the end, this is what they list as to what they can successfully cook up:

At the end of the first turn, the country was in the midst of a full-blown constitutional crisis characterized by: 1) Political chaos; 2) Widespread threats of violence, and sporadic actual violence in the streets; and 4) A hostile, dangerous, highly-partisan, and frequently unconstrained information and media environment.

In summation... absolute chaos. This is what they want to sow on election night, even though Trump has clearly won.

The Biden campaign then announces that they have convinced California, Oregon and Washington to secede unless Congress agrees to fundamentally change the United States of America. I'm not kidding around here... This is their plan! Using that leverage, take a look at this INSANE list of demands.

  1. Give statehood to Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
  2. Divide California into five states to more accurately represent its population in the Senate. (Interesting... they don't request the same for Texas. I wonder why…)
  3. Require Supreme Court justices to retire at 70.
  4. Eliminate the Electoral College.

So... the compromise of 1877 2.0. And we know how that one turned out. The scary thing is that this scenario is clearly what they EXPECT to happen. It's their most likely outcome. Violence, chaos, constitutional crisis and the end of the United States as we know it. It's right there in black and white. We had better start taking them at their word because they're not playing around anymore.

Game four, a narrow Biden win, wasn't as crazy as what they have in store for if Trump wins, but that right there should tell you what they have planned for if Biden wins. All those lists of demands will get pushed through. So regardless, their plans are to destroy America. But I do want to point out a few things.

Democrats fully expect Trump to investigate the large amounts of mail-in ballots, and they're geared up to stop any action the DOJ might initiate. They don't expect Biden to officially be declared the winner until at least a week after the election.

Check this out:

The Trump Campaign stoked chaos and mayhem by urging local police forces to break up Black Lives Matter and pro-Biden demonstrations and encouraging Alt Right / Boogaloo supporters to confront liberal protestors.

Democrats will have rioters in the streets in all scenarios, but the blame will be thrust on Trump. This theme is constant throughout the entire document.

Later in the scenario, the Biden campaign again called for massive civil unrest to continue, where they admit:

Violent skirmishes and vandalism took place during these demonstrations.

Didn't they already make a movie called The Purge: Election Year? Someone tell the Democrats that movies aren't supposed to be real. How else can you describe this? Their plan, in their own words, is to call for civil unrest when they fully expect them to devolve into violence. It's so blatant, if I didn't read it here with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it.

Let's go back to the Obama administration's 7 Pillars.

Number 7: Divisions among the regimes' coercive forces.

As I told you two weeks ago, what they mean by this is the police and military. In order for everything I just showed you to successfully be pulled off, they need the police diminished and the military conflicted. They can't have police dispersing the riots, and they sure as heck can't have the National Guard moving in to support them. There were multiple mentions of National Guard troops in the wargame.

And the attack on the police has continued. Multiple officers were shot in Louisville during the Breonna Taylor riots.

One officer was clubbed in the head with a baseball bat last week in Seattle. Now imagine what's going to happen on election night...

The mainstream media continues to make the case that the military is divided against Trump. Take a look at this excerpt from the fourth wargame where Biden ekes out a narrow win:

A critical moment in the game play was the Joint Chiefs of Staff leaking that internal discussions had taken place about how to handle the escalating situation, including the consideration of resigning in protest of Trump's continued efforts to sow unrest. The leak indicated that the Joint Chiefs' commitment was to the Constitution rather than to the President.

This is a signal. Get on board and get in line.

If the left has their way... this is our future. I hope not, but it's kind of hard to argue that any of this is hyperbolic or conspiracy theory when it's right there in black and white intheir ownwords. I'm revealing all of this... not to cause an uproar. We need the opposite. We need to be level headed. We need to know what they are planning so we can defeat their ideas with our own. When they call for people to hit the streets, we need to show this information with everyone we know. Show them that it was their plan, and that they want to provoke a response. Don't give it. I hope that the Trump team has this information and has made plans. The fate of our country is at stake.

If the left has their way... this is our future.

With the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there is now the complicated added layer of nominating a replacement for her just weeks before an election. The left is losing its mind over this already.

So, what can you do about any of this? First, vote of course. In-person, at a polling place is the best bet for making sure your vote counts. Democrats have made it sound like polling locations are Republican COVID death traps, yet people somehow manage to survive going to Wal-Mart every day. With so many places offering early voting options now, you will be able to vote in-person if you want to.

Democrats have made it sound like polling locations are Republican COVID death traps...

Especially if the election is close, we know the Color Revolution crowd will pull out all the stops to litigate the results.

Biden's team has already hired 600 lawyers to do just that if necessary. So patience will be required. It will likely take several weeks to get an official result. There will likely be instances of fraud, missing ballots, and found ballots. It will be extremely frustrating.

But regardless of the result, take the high road. Consider taking a social media sabbatical until the storm blows over. At the very least, don't share election rumors. Resist joining mobs — even if it's your favorite team.

I'm not saying roll over and be docile lambs. But we cannot mirror the "burn it down" crowd, because that crowd always fails in the end. Wherever you find yourself, whether in the halls of power or your regular workplace, be the adult in the room. There are much bigger issues at stake here than any one candidate.

Then, get involved at your local level. Support law enforcement. Become an election official. Run for the school board. Give to organizations defending life and liberty.

Do whatever you can to promote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If our current national turmoil proves anything, it's that we DO NOT know the Constitution. Work to reverse that trend in your community.

America's past and present failures are not a predictor of our future success. Commit to being the people that embody the mission President Lincoln proposed at the end of his second inaugural address:

With malice toward none; with charity for all... let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds... to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.

And finally, pray hard for grace and peace to reign. Appeal to God to have mercy on this nation that we love in spite of itself.

6 things you NEED to know about the Silicon Valley Bank collapse

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

Silicon Valley Bank's collapse is sparking traumatic memories of the 2008 financial crash. Should we be worried SVB is signaling a similar economic catastrophe, or is everyone overreacting to the media's hype? Glenn told his listeners to be "healthily terrified." This event is sure to have ripple effects throughout the economy, but the more you are informed about it, the more you can prepare. Here are 6 things you need to know about Silicon Valley Bank's crash—explained in simple words.

1. The short answer to what happened: SVB didn't have enough money to pay its depositors.

Remember the scene from It's a Wonderful Life when all of the residents make a run on George Bailey's bank demanding their money? Fortunately for them, their money was in the altruistic hands of George Bailey, who used his honeymoon savings to give the depositors the money they demanded.

Silicon Valley Bank's depositors weren't so lucky.

In short, the depositors made a run on Silicon Valley Bank, demanding the withdrawal of their money. But SVB simply didn't have the liquid money available to give their depositors, causing regulators to shut down the bank shortly afterward.

2. It all started with COVID...

Why didn't SVB have enough money for its depositors? To explain this, we have to go back to the pandemic era.

The pandemic saw a rapid decrease in spending and a massive increase in bank deposits. Due to the uncertainty of the future and lockdowns limiting ways to spend money on recreational activities, like restaurants, bars, and other outlets, many Americans stocked up money in their accounts. In fact, SVB's deposits doubled in 2021 alone, bringing in more money than they could lend out to their clients.

To make a return on their available cash, SVB wanted to invest it, as many banks do. Since they had reached their lending limit, they decided to invest it in U.S. Treasury Securities, which are the government's means of funding itself without using taxation (in a nutshell). These are considered "ultra-safe" investments because they are backed by the "full faith and credit of the federal government."

Unlike other forms of investments, investing in Treasuries means the government will do everything within its legal power to pay back the money used to fund itself. In other words, it is typically very safe... so what happened?

3. Then came the magic cocktail—record-high inflation and rising interest rates...

Interest rates ruined the typically "ultra-safe" investment. Due to 40-year record-high inflation, the Fed lifted rates eight times by a total of 4.25 percentage points in 2022, raising interest rates from 0.25 percent to 4.375 percent. This means the value of U.S. Treasuries investments plummeted rapidly. SVB reported that it lost $1.8 billion due to the decreased value of its Treasuries investments after a year of rising interest rates.

This raises the following question: why didn't SVB just weather the storm and wait for interest rates to decrease? There are two issues with this. The first is that, with so many of their assets held up in Treasuries investments, SVB still wouldn't have enough liquid assets to give their depositors during the bank run.

The second issue is that Treasuries investments have a ten-year limit. In 2021 during the Trump administration, interest rates were at an all-time low of 0.125 percent.

The record-fast increase of interest rates in 2022 caused very little chance for rates to go back down to their historic 2021 lows within ten years for banks to make their money back on their investments.

To avoid this, SVB planned to sell their investments at a loss and re-purchase Treasuries investments at the decreased value, giving them an extra ten years to bet on decreased interest rates in the future.

But people caught on to SVB's plan and didn't want to ride with the risk.

4. Account holders withdrew their money... FAST.

As aforementioned, SVP lost $1.8 billion when it sold its depleted Treasuries investments. While they were betting on being able to re-purchase the devalued securities, hoping that they would go up in value in the future with lowered interest rates, investors were worried about the risk.

Once they made the announcement of their $1.8 billion loss, their stocks began to drop, and venture capitalists warned the companies they invest in to pull out of SVB. This had a snowball effect, leading to a "bank run" of depositors demanding to withdraw their money from their SVB accounts.

This led to the perfect storm: SVB's investment losses coupled with the influx of withdrawals were so immense that regulators had to step in and shut the bank down to protect depositors. The government currently "running" SVB, for all practical purposes, is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The FDIC closed SVB on Friday and reopened the bank on Monday, March 13th as the Deposit Insurance Bank of Santa Clara.

5. Some people may lose their money. 

Banks insure accounts with $250,000 or less with FDIC insurance. That means, in cases of bank failure, exactly like this one, the FDIC covers all accounts less than $250,000. The FDIC said SVB customers who had less than $250,000 in their accounts will have access to all of their money when the bank reopens. Since it reopened this week, they should have access to their funds.

However, many of SVB's depositors had more than $250,000 in their accounts—it is Silicon Valley after all. Therefore, their accounts were not covered by FDIC insurance. Will they get their money back? There is a chance that they will not.

It is unclear how much SVB currently has to cover uninsured deposits. It is likely not enough. The FDIC has issued a "Receiver's Certificate" to the uninsured account holders with the amount in their account that is not covered by FDIC insurance.

The FDIC said it will pay some of the uninsured deposits by next week by liquidating any additional assets held by SVB. However, if the liquidated assets are not enough, many of SVB's uninsured account holders could lose their money for good.

6. Is this 2008 all over again?

SVB's collapse was the largest bank failure since 2008, when Washington Mutual failed with $307 billion in assets. Its failure, along with the collapse of the Lehman Brother's investment bank, triggered the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Are we in danger of repeating 2008?

Some argue that we are not in danger of another economic catastrophe, simply because SVB holds less than 1 percent of the nation's assets. However, as Glenn warns, there is a danger of banks repeating the same mistakes as SVP.

SVP wasn't the only bank to use its surplus deposits to invest in U.S. Treasuries, which means that other banks are wrestling with the depleted value of their securities investments due to rising interest rates.

Bank of America, for example, lost $109 billion in their securities investments due to rising interest rates, the most among its peers—and Bank of America is no small fish in the ocean of assets.

Other major banks recorded other massive losses in their securities investments due to rising interest rates. JP Morgan Chase lost $36 billion, Wells Fargo lost $41 billion, Citigroup lost $25 billion, and Goldman Sachs lost $1 billion. If the little banks collapse, will they get the same effort and attention from the federal government as the "big guys?"

The critic may argue that these are still small values given the incredibly large amount of assets held in banks nationwide. However, this is missing the point. Major banks have majorly invested in securities since the pandemic-era skyrocketing rate of deposits. Now those investments are depleted in value.

They can either sell those investments at a loss, or they can wait and hope that they will recover over time. However, if those investments are no longer liquid, what happens when their depositors come knocking? Will they have enough liquid assets to cover a massive bank run? These are the lingering questions that our banks need to address.

As Glenn says, this will impact you—it is only a matter of time. What will you do to prepare?

Glenn just purchased the entire historical Roe v. Wade archive as a solemn reminder of our nation's past and the vital importance of honoring the sacredness of life. Since Roe was overturned in 2022, many states have been stepping up to protect both their unborn citizens AND the mothers carrying them.

Which states are doing the most to protect their most vulnerable? Here are the top 12 states with the strictest laws against abortion.

1. Alabama

​Alabama has some of the nation's most protective pro-life measures, banning all abortions in the case of life-threatening circumstances for the mother. That means abortion is banned at every ​stage of pregnancy. Health care providers found guilty of performing abortions face a class-A felony, the most serious charge besides Capitol Murder, with the potential of carrying a life sentence in prison. However, the pill, Plan B, is classified as "contraception" rather than abortion. Taxpayer-funded Medicaid does not cover abortion procedures except in very limited circumstances.

Alabama is one of the few states to add protections within its state constitution for the unborn. The state:

Acknowledges, declares, and affirms that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life.

2. Arkansas

Like Alabama, Arkansas bans abortion at every stage of pregnancy except in life-threatening situations for the mother. However, Plan B is still considered "contraception" and is legal. Taxpayer-funded Medicaid does not cover abortion procedures except in very limited circumstances. Additionally, Arkansas added the amendment to its state constitution, declaring:

The policy of Arkansas is to protect the life of every unborn child from conception until birth, to the extent permitted by the Federal Constitution.

3. Idaho

Idaho bans abortions at every stage of pregnancy with the exceptions of life-threatening situations to the mother and instances of rape and incest. The health care practitioner who gave an abortion must prove "affirmative defense," which means they have to prove in court why the abortion is necessary and meets the legal criteria. Patients approved for abortion must wait 24 hours after counseling to receive the procedure. Anyone who performs an abortion unless it's in one of the approved cases will face felony charges. Like Alabama and Arkansas, taxpayer-funded Medicaid does not cover abortion procedures.

Unlike Alabama and Arkansas, Idaho law does not include explicit constitutional or statutory protections for abortion.

4. Kentucky

Kentucky has also banned abortion at all stages of pregnancy except in life-threatening situations for the mother. There are no exceptions for rape or incest. However, abortion providers are fighting the all-out ban on abortion through appealing to the state's previous abortion ban after six weeks of pregnancy. The appeal is ongoing.

Though Kentucky voters voted down a proposal to add an amendment to the state constitution banning abortion, the state adopted the following policy towards abortion in 2018:

Children, whether born or unborn, are the greatest natural resource in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

5. Louisiana

Louisiana also banned abortion at all stages of pregnancy with no exceptions for rape or incest. However there is an appeal to allow abortions in the case of rape and incest. Healthcare practitioners who violate this ban are subject to criminal prosecution. Moreover, Louisiana adopted an amendment in their state constitution—specifically, the Louisiana Declaration of Rights, banning the construction of any constitutional right to abortion:

To protect human life, nothing in present constitution shall be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.

6. Mississippi

Mississippi bans all abortions except to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape or incest that have been reported to law enforcement. Though Mississippi did not adopt a constitutional amendment to ban abortion as a right, the Mississippi Code says:

Abortion carries significant physical and psychological risks to the maternal patient, and these physical and psychological risks increase with gestational age.

Moreover, doctors who perform illegal abortions face civil and criminal charges.

7. Missouri

Missouri bans all abortions except in the case of a medical emergency concerning the mother, with no exceptions for rape or incest. Those seeking to get an abortion must prove "affirmative defense," which means they have to prove in court why the abortion is necessary and meets the legal criteria. Minors seeking an abortion through "affirmative defense" must do so with parental consent. Moreover, those seeking an abortion must be offered an ultrasound.

Moreover, Missouri adopted the following statute protecting the unborn:

It is the intention of the general assembly of the state of Missouri to: (1) [d]efend the right to life of all humans, born and unborn; (2) [d]eclare that the state and all of its political subdivisions are a ‘sanctuary of life’ that protects pregnant women and their unborn children; and (3) [r]egulate abortion to the full extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States, decisions of the United States Supreme Court, and federal statutes.

8. Oklahoma

Oklahoma was the first state to successfully ban all abortions after conception following the overturn of Roe v. Wade and continues to lead the way as one of the toughest states on abortion. Exceptions include life-saving procedures for the mother or pregnancies resulting from "rape, sexual assault, or incest." Those who perform legal abortions can be reported and prosecuted criminally under state law HB427 and be charged at least $10,000 per illegal abortion procedure. Violations also include insurance companies or private citizens caught funding abortions.

Though Oklahoma has not adopted a state constitutional amendment concerning abortion, its Public Health Code states that it cannot be “construed as creating or recognizing right to abortion."

9. South Dakota

South Dakota bans all abortions except in life-threatening cases for the mother. There are no exceptions for rape and incest. However, it is legal to travel out of state to get an abortion. There are no state constitutional provisions protecting against abortion.

10. Tennessee

Tennessee bans all abortions except in life-threatening cases for the mother. There is currently a movement in the Tennessee state legislature to enact exceptions for rape and incest. Like Idaho and Missouri, healthcare practitioners who gave an abortion must prove "affirmative defense," which means they have to prove in court why the abortion is necessary and meets the legal criteria. Those who provide abortions illegally can be criminally prosecuted.

Tennessee's state constitution was amended to supersede a 2000 Tennessee supreme court case, which held:

A woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy is a vital part of the right to privacy guaranteed by the Tennessee Constitution [and that] the right is inherent in the concept of ordered liberty embodied in our constitution and is therefore fundamental.

The new state constitutional amendment reads as follows:

Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.

11. Texas

Texas bans all abortions except in life-threatening cases concerning the mother. There is a movement in the Texas state legislature to provide exemptions for rape and incest.

Moreover, Texas received a lot of heat for its law not only criminalizing providing illegal abortions but enabled citizens to report illegal abortions. However, several cities in Texas are pushing back against the abortion ban. After Dobbs, Texas increased the penalties for performing an abortion up to life in prison, including a civil penalty of no less than $100,000 per abortion performed.

Attorney General Ken Paxton said the following:

Now that the Supreme Court has finally overturned Roe, I will do everything in my power to protect mothers, families, and unborn children, and to uphold the state laws duly enacted by the Texas Legislature.

The cities of Austin and San Antonio passed ordinances preventing city funds from being used to investigate the provision or receipt of abortion care.

12. West Virginia

West Virginia bans abortion at all stages of pregnancy, except in the case of a “nonmedically viable fetus”, ectopic pregnancy, or medical emergency. According to the West Virginia state legislature, "Nonmedically viable fetus" means:

A fetus that contains sufficient lethal fetal anomalies so as to render the fetus medically futile or incompatible with life outside the womb in the reasonable medical judgment of a reasonably prudent physician.

Victims of rape and incest can obtain abortions up to eight weeks after conception, but only if they report to law enforcement first.

In 2018, West Virginians voted to add the following language to the state constitution:

Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.

Glenn was CENSORED by Facebook's independent fact-checkers yesterday. Here's the scoop.

This week on the Glenn Beck Program, Glenn and Stu discussed Tucker Carlson's commentary on the newly released Jan 6 Capitol footage, specifically, the curious case of Ray Epps—the man who admitted to inciting the Capitol breach in a text message to his nephew and was let off Scott-free. There is speculation that he could be an F.B.I. plant in the crowd. Regardless of whether or not Ray Epps is an F.B.I. plant, isn't it the right of the American people to ask questions, especially about issues as consequential to our country as Jan 6?

Facebook apparently doesn't think so...

After this clip was published on Glenn's Facebook page, Facebook slapped it with a "partly false" fact-checking label.

As it turns out, the "independent" fact-checkers told Glenn that unless he corrected his narrative about Ray Epps, they would limit his visibility and distribution on Facebook. This would not only affect Glenn. It would affect the entire Blaze crew of talent and personalities. Glenn had one thing to say in response: Go screw yourself, Facebook.

Glenn had one thing to say in response: Go screw yourself, Facebook.

Glenn went on to emphasize that he will NOT be issuing a correction, even if it means his Facebook page’s distribution may suffer as a result. He's not backing down on asking the tough questions and getting to the truth, no matter the cost.

Are YOUR taxpayer dollars funding these 15 ESG-FRIENDLY states? Find out HERE.

This week, we published a list of the top 14 states FIGHTING against ESG. Now, we are giving you the top 15 ESG-friendly states who are using YOUR taxpayer money to invest in leftist corporations.

Glenn has long warned of the dangers of ESG on American industry, and this list proves the risk. Already, multiple states on this list have divested their funds from gun manufacturers because they don't comply with their leftist agenda. Moreover, the businesses in these states who don't want to integrate left-leaning environmental, gender, and diversity standards into their business won't have any hope of investment from their government.

However, several of the states are considering ESG legislation RIGHT NOW, so there is still time to act. Glenn encouraged his audience to send THIS Utah bill to their governor's desk to protect reliable American industry. If your state is still deliberating integrating ESG standards into their investment strategy, ACT NOW. If they have already integrated ESG practices, you still have the power to fight back. Find out if YOUR state is considering ESG or already adopted ESG investment below.


The Oregon state treasury announced that as a "fiduciary," it will engage ESG monitoring as a factor in its investment strategy:

Acting as a fiduciary, Treasury monitors and manages risks as a prudent global investor, engages as a responsible shareholder, and advocates for investor-friendly practices and regulations, such as improved identification and disclosure of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks.

In summary, that means if you are an Oregon resident, the state is using YOUR taxpayer dollars to fund liberal environmental and social agendas.


Connecticut's treasurer, Erick Russell, published the state's "Investment Policy for the Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds" (CRPTF). The plan integrates ESG monitoring as an core value in the state's investment strategy for retirement plans:

The CRPTF supports the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in the investment decision making process, given that such factors can impact both risk and return over the long term. In most cases, the CRPTF will vote FOR shareholder resolutions that request companies to disclose non-proprietary information related to ESG issues.

If you are a Connecticut resident, how do you feel about YOUR government using retirement funds and taxpayer dollars to fund woke ESG causes?


Like Connecticut, Maryland's "State Retirement and Pension System" uses ESG as a core investment value for their states' pension and retirement plans. In fact they have an entire ESG committee dedicated to the task.

You can read the 2022 ESG report for yourself HERE.


Maine's government also has a special branch dedicated to ESG considerations in YOUR retirement plans. The Maine PERS (Public Employee Retirement System) states:

The primary duty of MainePERS is to serve as good fiduciaries to our members. This requires considering sustainability as a vital component of successful long-term investing. We have compiled this Environmental, Social and Governance Report to outline how these factors impact our investment decisions.

Investment's main purpose should be securing the biggest return on investment--that is what investment should be about... right? At least you would hope so if someone else is managing YOUR money. Yet, this consideration takes a back seat if it comes into conflict with the state's liberal ESG standards.


​It comes at no surprise that California is one of the original leaders in pro-ESG policy. In 2022, California's Senate passed the first bill in the U.S. requiring all companies statewide generating more than $1 billion in revenue to disclose their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The bill's author, state Senator Wiener, said:

Corporate transparency and accountability are critically important when it comes to addressing our climate crisis. Corporate emissions are a huge contributor to climate change, but frankly, we don’t yet know the scope of the problem. That’s why we need to act quickly and decisively to ensure corporations are reporting their emissions. This is a landmark bill, and today’s vote is a big step forward for California’s fight against climate change.

This bill has been incorporated into a three-bill package being considered by the California state legislature RIGHT NOW. The addition of the other two bills will give California's government the power to use YOUR retirement funds to invest in ESG-friendly businesses, like Connecticut, Maryland, and Maine.

New Jersey

New Jersey's State Investment Council announced that it would be integrating ESG into its investment practices in 2018. The Council stated:

The policy recognizes that material ESG factors are an important component of a comprehensive investment management strategy, and an analysis of these factors should be applied by the Division in connection with the investment and evaluation of the Pension Fund's assets.

If you have a state pension fund in New Jersey, then your money is being used to fund left-leaning corporations.

New York

​New York's state retirement fund published a report stating:

ESG factors are a key component of the Fund’s analysis of both short- and long-term financial risks and opportunities.

That means your taxpayer dollars are funding ESG practices. New York also divested its pension funds from gun manufacturers. Unless you are a liberal-leaning business that complies with the Left's woke environmental and social standards, you will not get public investment from your state's retirement fund.

New Mexico

New Mexico's State Investment Council, which is a part of the State Investment Office, adopted ESG standards in their investment practices in 2021. Among their ESG considerations for investment include: resource conservation, climate change, sustainability, gender diversity, equity & inclusion, and others. In other words, unless your business in New Mexico complies with these leftist standards, you won't get any investment from your government. Moreover, if you are paying into New Mexico's pension program, you are FUNDING these leftist businesses.


Massachusetts' Pension Reserves Investment Management Board (PRIMB) unanimously voted to recommend to the full board that pension fund managers vote against companies that:

Failed to align their business plans with the goals of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, as set forth in the Paris Climate Agreement, and/or that have failed to establish a plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

In addition to climate change, Massachusetts has utilized the force of its state pension fund to demand that companies adopt leftist gender and inclusion standards in order to receive funding, becoming one of the most outspoken ESG proponents.


In 2022, Nevada's treasurer announced that his $49 billion portfolio—taxpayer dollars, mind you—will divest from all businesses that sell assault-style weapons. What other industries will they choose to divest from in the future if they don't comply with their leftist standards?

Rhode Island

Rhode Island, like California and New York, divested its state pension funds from publicly traded gun companies. The state also uses state retirement and pension funds to invest in ESG-friendly companies.


Vermont's Teasurer’s Office and the Vermont Pension Investment Committee (VPIC) announced that they "consider financial factors and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in their investment decisions." They also hold companies to the climate standards put forth in the Paris Climate Agreement.


Seattle, one of the nation's most left-leaning cities, announced that its City Employees Retirement System will be taking ESG into consideration when choosing their investments. This comes as no surprise from a city in a state that is mandating "100% clean energy by 2040" and holding its first "greenhouse gas allowance auction."


Colorado is considering a bill RIGHT NOW that would require Colorado's Public Employee Retirement Association (PERA) to factor the state’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goals into its investment decisions. If it passes, it would affect one out of every ten Colorado residents who contribute to the PERA fund.


Delaware has been pushing state ESG policy since 2018. The state Senate passed a bill that enables the government—again, using the same justification as a "fiduciary"—to invest using ESG as a consideration. The state also passed a certification process in 2018. Though "voluntary," these certificates are used by the government to identify sustainable businesses. So if you don't have a certificate, you can kiss goodbye to the possibility of state investment.
