The 53% - Get more of their stories HERE

I grew up in a small town in New Mexico. I spent summers either working on the farm or working fence line for ranches. I've worked jobs that legal Americans won't do. When I graduated I joined the Army. I spent six years serving my country, and saved my money. When I left the Army I put myself through school. My wife was raised like I was the panhandle of Texas. Served in the Army until she was disabled in an accident. She lost all of her medical office job a year and a half ago, and when her employer laid off most of the staff after looking at the impact of Obama care as Medicare and Medicaid was paying below the cost I'm now working. I'm buying a home and a car. I'm sacrificing everywhere so I can put her through college. I've paid taxes since I was 18. I'm happy. I'm grateful for what I have. I'm living the American dream. I am one of the 53%.

I am 31-years-old. No college working at a leading hospital in IT training. I make $70,000 a year. So can you. Stop blaming other people. I'm the 53%.

I'm a grown up hippie. A blue collar hippie. I dropped out of high school my junior year. I passed my GED. I married at 16 for love. My husband and I will celebrate our 42nd anniversary in January. I had my first of two daughters when I was 18. I've worked at a variety of jobs retail, shipping, receiving. Printing bookkeeping. I network for myself. I published a music fanzine for 10 years. We own our home. We own our vehicles. We own our stuff. We continue to work hard to save for our future. I give some to charity. I have no unreasonable demands on anyone. Thus I have no unrealistic expectations. I'm a Christian woman in the process of rebonding with God. I'm happy. I'm at peace. I have a fairly simple life but it's a happy life. I am the 53%. Why do you mock.

99%

I am now a college student. I appreciate my parents more than I ever before. Preposterous amount of debt to send me to college will most likely be paid off in their lifetime. They're sacrificing many of their dreams for me. I am scared. All I can hope for is to obtain a decent job. I love you mom and dad. I promise. We are the 99%. (Pat - Should be a government program that does this. Not a parent. Not a mother and a father. Where's the government here? )

My 27-year-old brother was laid off from his job in construction - and was promised that they would let him come back. They lied. He sat at home every day because he was sure they would let him come back. He went on unemployment for a time, and then he got a call he wasn't going to be let back in the construction company. Now he works at county fairgrounds getting $12 an hour, and he lives with my parents and myself because he can't afford to live on his own. My parents can't afford to live without him. I am the 99%.

Wow. Which side do YOU want to be on?

Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his role in the death of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca, who specializes in self-defense law, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain exactly what must be proven in order for those charges to stand.

Did Chauvin act reasonably in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's death, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control?

Branca also argued that the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it "impossible" for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.
