UPDATED: Glenn reflects on Andrew Breitbart: "We need more voices, not fewer voices"

Update:

Glenn opened "The Glenn Beck Program" with some words on Andrew Breitbart's passing. You can watch those comments below:

Original Story: 

The shocking news of the passing of conservative new media legend Andrew Breitbart broke this morning while Glenn was on air.

“I’m sorry, but we’re a little stunned,” Glenn said upon hearing the news.

"We pray for his family, we pray for his children, and we pray that his mission to expose those who need to be exposed continues," Glenn said later in the broadcast.

The death of Andrew Breitbart was first reported on his website,Big Government, which released a statement that said:

“Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.”

The L.A. coroner’s office confirmed the death of the father of four who had been tweeting just hours prior. Andrew’s last tweet was an apology to someone he was going back and forth with on twitter, which he did on a regular basis.

“@AndrewBreitbart: I called you a putz cause I thought you were being intentionally disingenuous. If not I apologize.”

“That is the way to go out. 'I'm sorry I got that wrong. I apologize',” Glenn said.

Breitbart was only 43 years old, and did not have any publicly known health problems, but, like Glenn points out, when you’re in a position like he was you’re not going to go out and advertise that you have any kind of serious heart condition or other type of illness that could cause something like this.

“People try to make a big deal out of this ‘feud’ I had with Andrew. I didn’t have one with Andrew, he may have had one with me, but I didn’t have one with him. I tried to do what I felt was right, and if people disagree with me, they disagree with me,” Glenn said.

Glenn went on to recall the first time he can remember speaking to Andrew, “We had rented a small boat, and we were going -- there were six of us, Pat and Joe and me and our wives. And we were going to take the day and circle the island of Manhattan, and just kind of pray and get away from everything. I mean, at least not away from everything. It's better than being on Manhattan. Just get away from everything, and take kind of a day, and go up towards West Point and go walk through West Point and just take the day, and kind of be on the waters that the founders were on. And before I could shut my cell phone off that morning, or I think Joe, because he never shuts his cell phone off. We got a phone call. And it was from Andrew, and he said we have some video tape Glenn to do. And he said I think we have Acorn. And I said what are you talking about? He told me about James [O’Keefe].”

James O’Keefe is the investigative reporter who came onto the scene with the story Glenn is referring to. This is the story that broke the Acorn scandal, and exposed that organization to the American taxpayer.

Glenn continued his story, “he [Breitbart] said James O'Keefe has gone in, and I said 'to one Acorn office?' because it was stunning stuff. I knew how these guys thought. 'Glenn, I'm not going to give you all the details now. But it's multiple.' And I said, 'you've got to be kidding m?'. And he said 'no.' I said, 'if you have that really on tape you do have Acorn.' 'We'd like to premier it on your show.' And I said, 'cool, whatever.' I'm not a guy -- I my record will show. I think we were the last person to do an interview with the Sarah Palin. We don't break news. I don't really care about breaking the news as long as it gets out there. And so many in people they fight over that stuff, and I don't really care. 'If you need to.' 'No, no we want to break it on your show. I think that the next one will go to Hannity or something.' I said ‘whatever.’ That's the first time I spoke to him was when he told me I think we have Acorn, and he was right. He is the guy who exposed Acorn, and really made it personal to the American people. We had heard Acorn. We knew Acorn was a problem but those videotapes that he did which James O'Keefe that brought it home to people, and it was the beginning of that that I think I have this order right. I think that that's started it.”

Andrew passionately and fearlessly took on the left on daily basis was also instrumental in the "Friends of Abe" movement, an underground movement to counter this discrimination of conservatives in Hollywood named after Abraham Lincoln.

While Breitbart's "The Bigs" have been a competitor to some of Glenn's businesses, Glenn said that he hoped that the company continues. " They've broken a lot of stories. A lot of stories. We need more voices not fewer voices," he said.

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."
