The Homeless Advisor updates Glenn on his Restoring Love plans

Not long ago, Glenn got connected with Scooter, a homeless man who was a big fan and was trying to live a life without government assistance despite his hardships. At the time, Scooter was living out of his RV in New Jersey, but he has found himself in Mississippi - just a few short hours away from Dallas, TX. What was he doing in Mississippi? And since he was so close to Dallas, was he planning on making the trip to Restoring Love?

Transcript of the interview:

GLENN: I'm going to the homeless guy Scooter. He's in Mississippi now. Scooter?

SCOOTER: Good morning.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

SCOOTER: All right. How are you doing?

GLENN: Very good. You're in Mississippi. You were -- last we spoke, you were in New Jersey Mississippi. You're the guy who lives in his van and you're homeless but you don't want any help. You don't want somebody to give it to you. You're not taking government subsidies?

SCOOTER: Well, actually I was taking a little bit of food stamps but I cut that off. I had another few months to go and I just took myself off the grid.

STU: Yeah.

SCOOTER: I've been involved in a project trying to work my way across America. Right now I'm in the gulf region. I'm down in Gulfport working with a guy who teaching me how to do Wi-Fi networks in hotels and such, as well as web design. I also put this guy together with the Mercury One auction and his auction rate is $7500 for the cause.

GLENN: Oh, you're kidding me?

SCOOTER: Yeah, seriously. A fellow by the name of Mark Davis who I'm at his house right now. So, we've been doing --

GLENN: Wait, wait. Are you working or is he -- are strangers letting a crazy homeless man just into their house?

SCOOTER: Well, I have to open the door first. I don't come in through the window, but -- oh, by the way, I was listening to you lament the fact that the New York Times won't put your book at No. 1.

GLENN: Oh, I don't really care, but yes.

SCOOTER: Well, here's the thing is: The next printing change the title to 50 Shades of Cowardice and I think you'll be able to shoot right not top.

GLENN: Very funny. Very funny. So, when do you -- when do you leave Gulfport?

SCOOTER: Well, I'm going to go heading towards Restoring Love. He'll be volunteering. I'll be volunteer. We're waiting for the final word on the assignment. So, I'm getting maybe the middle of next week and as relates to Restoring Love, I want to tell you about an incident I had on the way down here. I was at a gas station. I was behind this guy and he was a much older gentleman having the worst time with the pump, trying to use his credit card, he was getting frustrated and ordinarily my want to do would be just to sit in the car and rumble and be aggravated him and I started thinking about where it was I was heading and what the purpose was. Readjusted my thought process, went out, found out what he was doing wrong. I said, Can I help you? And you would have thought I just saved his life. Got out, got him set up, got him filled. He moved out of the way. So, that's one little act of something that I ordinarily wouldn't do that was inspired by the event that I'll be attending in a couple of weeks.

GLENN: Fantastic. That's fantastic. Have you had any job offers?

SCOOTER: Well, I may have an interview in Dallas when we're there. Like I said, I'm working with this fellow. I worked with a friends of mine who had hurt their back who does custom window treatments which would look great at a farm and I learned how to fabricate curtains. I learned how to make pillows. I learned how to operate a sewing machine. So, I worked for her for awhile and I was also a lab rat for a company that is creating the next generation of airport security where you don't get, like, a date on second base, grope grandma or photograph grandma, all done by ultrasound.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? If you say to women I make pillows this my van where I live, I think you may be ready to run airport security.

STU: Uh-huh.

SCOOTER: Well, you know something? I have said once before that at times the -- when I was up on Camp Scooter, Wal-Mart, that the wind was blowing so much, it looked like I had a social life. I wasn't making the pillows in the van. I was in her workroom.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Good.

SCOOTER: This took about a mention and a half. Actually can I mention her?

GLENN: Yeah.

SCOOTER: She's on Facebook. It's Custom Curtain Design Company. Her talent is extraordinary.

GLENN: Okay. Actually I've changed my mind. You can't mention her.

SCOOTER: Oh. Sorry

GLENN: All right.

SCOOTER: So, anyway --

GLENN: When will you leaving?

SCOOTER: Barbara in Tennessee wants me to give you a hug and a kiss.

GLENN: I won't accept it from you.

SCOOTER: Well, I told her the hug but not so much the kiss. We're hoping to be in Dallas next week. I'm 10 hours away from Dallas right now.

GLENN: All right. Well, good luck and we'll see you when you get here.

SCOOTER: All right, Glenn. Thank so much. God bless you-guys and please don't take away Glee.

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
