Former Sec. of State blames media, Tea Party for nation's problems

Because progressives really don't want to admit that spending and a lack of constitutional values are responsible for the trouble the country now faces! What kind of excuses does Colin Powell come up with for why Washington can't find any solutions? He blames the media and the Tea Party.

General Powell said, "The tone is not good right now and our political system here in Washington, particularly up on the Hill, Congress, has become very, very tense, in that two sides, Republicans and Democrats, are focusing more and more on the extreme left and extreme right. And we have to come back toward the center in order to compromise. The story I like to tell is our Founding Fathers were able to sit in Philadelphia and make some of the greatest compromises known to man. Tough, tough issues. But they did it. Why? Because they were there to create a country."

"Congress now that can't even pass an appropriations bill. And we're running this country on a continuing resolution.What else are they here for but you to pass appropriation bills? And so we have got to find a way to start coming back together. And let me say this directly. The media has to help us. The media loves this game where everybody is on the extreme. It makes for great television. It makes for great chatter. It makes for great talk shows all day long with commentators commenting on commentators about the latest little miniflap up on Capitol Hill. So what we have to do is sort of take some of the heat out of our political life in terms of the coverage of it so these folks can get to work quietly."

Glenn had trouble listening to General Powell's statements, expressing concern that the former Secretary of State would claim that the Founders compromised their values.

"They didn't sell out their values. They didn't sell out their values. They had shared values. We don't have shared values anymore. Mr. Colin Powell, I'm sorry, sir, but we don't have shared values. When you have people who are living like animals on Occupy Wall Street, they're raping and no one is saying a word, we don't have shared values anymore. How do you compromise with people who want to collapse the system?" Glenns said.

Glenn said that unlike Occupy Wall Street and their supporters, the Founders were focused on forming a more perfect union - not destroying the system. Glenn argued that the Founders merely had to convince others that there was strength in unity.

"You can't sit down at a table with Occupy Wall Street. Their stated goal is to destroy America. That is their stated goal," Glenn added.

Powell then moved to the Tea Party, saying "The Tea Party point of view of no compromising whatsoever is not a point of view that will eventually produce a presidential candidate who will win."

"This explains why you see Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich being the lovers of the right's media. The right loves these guys. Loves them. Why? Because the progressives in the Republican Party absolutely know that the American people want a big government guy still. You still have to have a big government guy. Of course you do. You have to have John McCain or Barack Obama. You have to have that. You have to have, you know, Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. You've gotta have that. You can't have somebody who believes in small government," 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.
