Mayor wants Glenn's 1791 factory in their town

Mount Airy, a small town in North Carolina that served as the inspiration for Mayberry, is asking for Glenn to bring his 1791 business to their town in order to restart their textile industry. Glenn read the news on air and had some mixed feelings, but he ended up getting the mayor on the phone to talk more about the business and his plans for Mercury One.

Newsmax reports:

The job-strapped North Carolina town where Andy Griffith was born and served as the model for his fictional TV town Mayberry is banking on TV titan Glenn Beck to bring back prosperity with a new factory.

The mayor of Mount Airy wrote to Beck urging him to set up a factory to base his new clothing line in the town.

Deborah Cochran took the step after Beck said he was searching for a place to make his 1791 line, which will raise money for his Mercury One charity. “Out there somewhere is a town searching for a second chance — a mill waiting to be reopened,” Beck says in a video on his website.

But unemployment in Surry County, which includes the city, now stands at 10.9 percent. The area has been badly hit as clothing manufacturing jobs have moved abroad, and this is why Cochran thinks it would be ideal for Beck’s factory.

Others, though, aren’t ready to turn to Beck for salvation — at least not yet. The city’s board of commissioners would not support Cochran’s plan because of Beck’s controversial ultra-conservative views, a source told the local Mount Airy News.

Glenn was excited to hear about the interest in the 1791 project, but was initially turned off by the story point about the board being turned off by his personal politics. “I'm not going to live in it. I won't do anything in a city where you are going to make everything about politics. Forget it,” Glenn told Stu as he read.

“I know it's not (the mayor’s) fault. I'm not blaming her. I was ready to get her on the phone, and it's absolutely not her fault. I'm not going to do anything in a town − I'm tired of it. I'm tired of it. You don't want us, that's fine,” Glenn said.

“We can take our jobs elsewhere,” Stu said.

A few minutes later, though, Glenn spoke with Mayor Cochran on the phone.

“We have relied heavily on legacy industries such as textiles and furniture. In fact, at one time we were known all over the world for making socks. And in fact, my mother worked at Mount Airy Hosiery mill when that plant closed. I was 11 years old. So I remember what that was like because my father was paralyzed and we had no income coming in. Well, then as fate would have it, my younger brother went into the hosiery industry. He was a head sixer and then Kentucky Derby Hosiery closed, the jobs went overseas and then he lost his job and we relived those unpleasant memories. And not only that, he lost his health insurance and then was diagnosed with leukemia,” the Mayor told Glenn.

Glenn expressed his concerns about the city commissioners being concerned about his conservative view points. “I'm really not interested in working around a bunch of people that might consider job creation a partisan event.”

“These people here are the best on the planet. For example, I was talking about my brother. These folks here who have lost their jobs, we had a benefit for him that raised nearly $8,000. They give all the time. So, you know, my main concern is these people who are out of work,” she told Glenn.

“I'm building it for all of the profits to go right directly to charity. So it's not a profit organization. So, you know, we'd need some people that are going to help step to the plate and put this together, but this will be a Newman's Own kind of situation where the employees are taken care of and everybody works hard but we're all working for a cause to restart the engine of America,” Glenn told her.

After getting off the phone he asked the Mayor to stay on the line and speak with his producers to get more information on the town.

Glenn ended the segment on radio playing the Mercury One package which originally aired during the GBTV Q&A after he left FOX.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

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."
