Why is Glenn OK with Chris Christie not running for President in 2012?

People really want Chris Christie to run. Reallyreallyreally bad. Glenn played the latest audio from Chris Christie and explained why, after all the answers, he really understands why Chris Christie won’t run.

Early in the program when The Blaze news was airing, Glenn said, “ I'm tired of this game of Chris Christie, I am. He says he's not in. Great, let's take the man at his word. I quite honestly cannot figure out why he's not in. I don't know if he has something to hide. I don't believe this bullcrap that he's not qualified. “

“ I think it is a political calculation here that maybe he thinks Obama is unbeatable. Maybe he's got something in his closet. I don't know. But the country is on fire, the country is not going to survive this president one more term. It won't survive this president one more term.”

Later in the program, though, Glenn changed his tune because he heard Christie really explain why he does not feel that he should be running for President.

“I want to hear him actually give a real answer to why he won't run, and I think he did yesterday in the Reagan library,” Glenn explained.

During a speech yesterday, a woman told Christie, “And I say this from the bottom of my heart with my daughter right here and my grandchildren who are at home. I know New Jersey needs you, but I really implore you, I really do. I don't mean this funny. I mean this with all my heart. We can't wait another four years to 2016. And I I really implore you as a citizen of this country to please, sir, to reconsider. Don't even say anything tonight. Of course you wouldn't. Go home and really think about it. Please. Do it, do it for my daughter. Do it for our grandchildren. Do it for our sons. Please, sir, don't we need you. Your country needs you to run for president.”

“That is emotionally moving because so many of us feel that way,” Pat said. “If we get the wrong guy or if the same guy, heaven forbid, wins again, we're not going to make it to 2016. We need you now.”

Glenn said that he is having problems with almost every candidate who is currently in the race and does not believe that they aren’t just more of the same – big government, progressive, incompetent.

“Convince me that you are not more of the same,” Glenn said. “ Convince me. Please. I want to believe. I don't believe any of you. I want to believe. I need to believe. But I don't. I just don't. I just, I'm not convinced I've seen the person yet.”

Glenn then played the response that Christie had for the woman who implored him to run.

“There are a lot of people who have asked me about this over the course of the last number of weeks and months, and this is all I'll say about that tonight is that I hear exactly what you're saying and I feel the passion with which you say it, and it touches me. Because I can tell you I'm just a kid from Jersey who feels like I'm the luckiest guy in the world to have the opportunity that I have to be the governor of my state,” Christie said.

Glenn said that he had heard the audio cut off at this point, but after hearing the following he had a change of heart on the whole “Chris Christie game” playing out right now.

Christie said, “And so people say to me all the time now when folks like you say those kind of things, for as many months as it's being said, "You know, governor, why don't they just leave you alone." To giving your answer, isn't it a burden? And what I say to you tonight and say to everybody else who is nice enough to applaud what she said is that it isn't a burden. I mean, fact of the matter is that anybody who has an ego large enough to say, ‘Oh, please, please, please stop asking me to be leader of the free world.’”

“It's such a burden. If you could please just stop. I mean, what kind of crazy egomaniac would you have to be to say, "Oh, please stop, stop." It's extraordinarily flattering. But by the same token, that heartfelt message is not a reason for me to do it. hat's what I've said all along is I know, without ever having met President Reagan, that he must have felt deeply in his heart that he was called to that moment to lead our country.”

“And so my answer to you is just this: I thank you for what you're saying and I take it in and I'm listening to every word of it and feel it, too. And please don't ever think for a second that I feel like I'm important enough in this world that somehow what you're saying is a problem for me. It's a great, great honor. I'm extraordinarily flattered and I really appreciate you being willing to stand up and say with the passion you did. That's why this country is a great place. Because of folks like you. Thank you.”

Glenn responded, “Stop. You hear what he said? He didn't feel called. That is an extraordinarily important thing. That is one of the only things that I would accept and leave it alone.”

“If Chris Christie doesn't feel called now, it means that there's something else that he's supposed to do. I don't know what it is. And it might be something that none of us ever see. But it is important. We've all been sent with a task. We're all supposed to do that task. I hope he's living his life in such a way that he can hear it and be clear because many of us won't be clear enough and we will miss our task. And somebody else will do it, but it was your job. It was your job,” Glenn said.

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.
