Glenn Beck is well-known for making ominous predictions and describing them in detail on his numerous chalkboards. On his radio program Tuesday, Beck added to one of his boldest predictions ever and showed why he thinks World War III could be in the making.
In 2011, when he was still at Fox News, Beck said the "Arab Spring" would not usher in peace, prosperity and democracy, as many were saying. Rather, Beck said the protests would become "contagious, cascade, sweep the Middle East, and begin to destabilize Europe and the rest of the world."
Time has proven him to be correct. But Beck prays he is wrong on what comes next.
Beck said Tuesday that one of the first manifestations of the instability hitting Europe -- which he predicted in 2011 -- is the push to "restore the Soviet borders."
"Next," Beck continued, "our enemies will see our lack of unity, military and financial resolve, and [they will] collapse and transform the U.S. and the West."
He said in a bleak tone: "The new world order will be China, Russia, socialist outliers, and poverty zones ... Happy Tuesday."
Beck explained how he arrived at the prediction, reminding listeners that former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson recently said the Russians approached the Chinese with a plan to help collapse the U.S. economy in 2008.
China wasn't on board at the time because it had too much invested in the United States, Beck said. But it has since begun to scale back its investments and even become "hostile" because of "what we have done with their money."
Beck remarked: "China and Russia are beginning to work together, and both China and Russia are beginning to trade outside of the U.S. dollar, which is something entirely new and very, very dangerous because once they get off the dollar ... the world will get off of the dollar."
Another significant event to note is Poland reportedly calling up its army reservists.
"The reason why that is happening is because of what has happened in Crimea," Beck said. "Anybody who is in a former Soviet state sees the writing on the wall, that Putin can go in and do whatever he wants and nobody is going to stop him."
Beck has long maintained that the globe is on the road to World War III, whether it U.S. military involvement in Syria that causes it, or conflict with Russia.
"Here are your choices," Beck said. "Do nothing and look at, possibly, World War III. Because what you will see is, Russia will start to sweep across and gather its old satellites -- and then possibly more than its old satellites -- and we will have the same situation that we had on our hands in World War II ... So you can either sit it out and do nothing, which is quite honestly my recommendation ... or you can get involved in World War III."
