How Beck is Always Right In His Predictions

Glenn Beck just loves to tell us how he prophecied everything that happens. If only we’d listened to him, we would have seen this all coming and so we should listen to him now when he tells us that it’s the END OF THE WORLD. Like most apocalyptic preachers, though, he just keeps changing the story to fit current events.

“We are in World War III,” Beck said. “It just hasn’t caught up yet. We’re here!”

“I told you last year, ‘And so it begins,'” he continued. “I have a growing sense of surety that what I believe is here, is indeed here … We are indeed setting the stage for global war and this is beginning of sorrows … This is the beginning of sorrows. I’m telling you, we don’t understand what is coming yet. We don’t see.”

“The gloves are about to come off on the entire world,” Beck warned. “God help us, we may see nuclear impacts on the face of the earth in our lifetime … The gloves are about to come off and this is the beginning of sorrows.”

But this is entirely different from the theory he was pushing 18 months ago about what was causing WWIII. Then it was all about America going to war with Russia and China. Now it’s all about ISIS. This is how apocalyptic preachers keep the con going, with an ever-changing scenario for the end of the world.

    In 2013 he predicted World War III:

    You’re now going to see an openly hot war, I fear, and the beginning of World War III

    And in 2015 he makes it official:

    We are in World War III

    Well there you are. Who can argue with that?

    No shit, Beck. Since you were born over a thousand nuclear weapons have been detonated on planet Earth. They’re called tests. And most of them are American.

    We are indeed setting the stage for global war and this is beginning of sorrows

    … and you’ll need to protect your families in the aftermath by buying gold! And now a word from our sponsor …

    This is how apocalyptic preachers keep the con going, with an ever-changing scenario for the end of the world.

    And their followers participate by pretending the preacher isn’t updating the script every now and then. Glenn Beck and his lot may be selling lies, but to be fair, their audience actively wants to be lied to.

    So the ‘gloves are about to come off the entire world’.

    Who knew that the world has fingers?

    Beck is kinda like the Jehovah’s Witnesses who have been promulgating revised dates for the Second Coming for over a hundred years now

    Beginning of sorrows? Sorrows for who? There are plenty of sorrowing and grieving people fighting and victims of wars alive today and and there always have been! Beck and his audience, really not suffering that much compared to people in areas where Boko Haram and Daesh (IS-IL/S) are active and the Syrian war has been brutally fought for how many years now? Three? Four? Five?

    World War Three? Wasn’t that the Cold War between the Soviets and allies plus sometimes Maoist China versus the US A and allied free capitalist world from 1945 -1989 or so? Or do we not count that one because it was mainly fought in a series of proxy fights? (Korea, Vietnam, Arab-Israeli wars, etc ..)

    Then it was all about America going to war with Russia and China. Now it’s all about ISIS.

    In fairness a world war necessarily has a lot of actors and is fought in multiple theatres and fronts. Its possible – nightmare scenario and unlikely to be realised but still – that we could end up at war with Russia in the Ukraine, China in Taiwan and still be fighting ISS in the Mesopotamia / Syria front plus maybe having a regional war involving Iran, Israel and other nations too. Stuff like that happened in, well, those first two world wars after all. I don’t think Beck is right and I don’t think this will happen but it is something I can just about imagine as a political horror scenario.

    Say for instance, a particularly bellicose and diplomatically oafish and clumsy far right Republican got elected as POTUS in 2016 and either by accident or design sparked a war with Russia – and then China intervenes or vice-versa and meanwhile we’re still fighting in Syria and Daesh manages to take over, say , Egypt or Saudi Arabia. Or /and a we could have coup by Islamists with a Daesh type mindset taking over Pakistan and then having a real military and nuclear wepons and rockets. Then sometime during this we could have China taking advantage of the distraction and chaos to seize Taiwan or tries to, or /& Russia does the same with more of eastern Europe, etc .. Again I’ll stress this is pretty unlikely but I would say it was at least a remotely plausible possibility. Then too, there are things in history we don’t see coming every bit as much as such nasty scenarios we do.

    Anyhow. We’re definitely not in World War Three right now so Beck is wrong on that currently and I still hope we never will be.

    Is the ‘GB’ in the background an Illuminati signal? Just asking questions here…..
