Getting the story right

In the midst of the media circus that has emerged following the shooting in Arizona, Glenn feels that there have only been two journalists that have really gotten the story right: Megyn Kelly and Wolf Blitzer.

Glenn first touched on Megyn Kelly and her interview with Sherriff Dupnik.  Before the interview, Sherriff Dupnik said that the suspect was motivated by heated political rhetoric from radio and television. Megyn Kelly asked, “I want to ask you about that because that's something you've mentioned the past couple of days, and I just want to ask you whether there is anything you've uncovered in your investigation so far that suggests this suspected killer was listening to radio or watching television.”

Pat chimed in, “When [Sherriff Dupnik] said that the violent vitriolic rhetoric, the hate speech in this country is what's behind this.  So she's asking him, is there any evidence that you have as a sheriff, as a law enforcement officer?  Is there a shred of evidence?”

Upon further prodding from Megyn Kelly, Sherriff Dupnik admitted that there was no specific evidence that pointed to any rhetoric on television or radio motivating the suspect’s violent actions.

Glenn said, “So here's a law enforcement official that is playing judge and jury.  It is, ‘I have been doing this for 50 years.  It is in my expert opinion that this is what's going on. No evidence.”

Stu added, “When you're telling the facts of an ongoing investigation as a law enforcement official, no, that's not where personal opinion makes the world round and round.  I'm sorry.”

Glenn then switched gears to Wolf Blitzer who, in his coverage of the story, made sure to say there was no evidence that Jared Lee Loughner was in any way a Sarah Palin fan who would have seen her SarahPac ad.”

“This is after one of the CNN reporters just spent about three minutes going on and on about Sarah Palin and her involvement in this, how she targeted these congressional districts and had them in the crosshairs, you know, and it was all about reelection.  And then finally Wolf poses the billion dollar question,” Pat said.

Blitzer asked, “Is there any evidence that the suspected shooter in this particular case was a Sarah Palin fan?” to which his guest had to admit there was not.

Glenn took the opportunity to say why he chose to stay off the air and not comment on the story until his usual radio show on Monday morning. He explained:

“As I was sitting in Spider-Man and I had no details, by the end of Spider-Man, I knew that it was a Democrat that had been shot, I knew others had been shot, I knew that a 9-year-old had been killed, I knew that they had caught the gunman but I knew nothing about it.  I immediately text messaged everyone:  Not one word until the facts are out.  No speculation.  That's what responsible people do.  Could have tweeted.  I've got The Blaze.  GlennBeck.com.  I could have walked over from the show over to Fox.  They would have put me on the air.  I had no facts.  Thus only an idiot has an opinion.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
