GOHMERT: Hey, Glenn.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

GOHMERT: Well, better since you're there helping to stir up the people.

GLENN: You have the ‑‑ you gave a great speech on the floor of the House Wednesday night and you were the most viewed item on TheBlaze all day yesterday. I don't know if you know that. People ‑‑

GOHMERT: Well, I was just ‑‑ Keith let me know that. I was actually shocked because I left the floor feeling empty, I didn't feel that good about it, I just ‑‑ you know, like you, you know, you're just so broken hearted and you see what's happening and what we're not getting done.

GLENN: The House voted yesterday 329‑91 for a six‑month continuing resolution to maintain government spending at just over a trillion dollars. Allen West voted for it, Paul Ryan voted for it. You did not?

GOHMERT: I'm ‑‑ I left broken hearted over that. Glenn, that CR, continuing spending at the same level, means that after the biggest wave election since the 1930s, 87 conservative freshmen come in, that means we will have gone two years with this great group of freshmen, the new majority, and have cut nothing. How can you feel good about that?

GLENN: So is there any chance of defunding Egypt and defunding the aid that we're sending to Libya and Egypt?

GOHMERT: The last hope for really effectively doing that is in the Senate. Rand Paul and Jim Inhofe in particular are demanding that they not pass their CR until we ‑‑ they specifically include language that says money will not go there, at least suspend the money until we have a verified certain ally in those countries, which we don't, as you know. And our Republican leadership is saying, "Hey, you know, we don't have to worry because, you know, we put specific language in our appropriations that will carry over that says, you know, you've got to meet these requirements to get money." Glenn, we just saw Hillary Clinton in the last month come back and say, "No, no, we're going to give Egypt a waiver from those requirements." So it's a little empty to be saying, "Yeah, we've got language in existing legislation that will make sure they don't get it if they don't deserve it." Kind of like Solyndra

GLENN: Representative Louie Gohmert from Texas, one of the only guys who ‑‑ I shouldn't say that. There's several of you now.

GOHMERT: There are a bunch of good guys, yes.

GLENN: Bunch of good guys, but you've been there for a while and you're holding the line. The news has come out now that the State Department and the president had the information that we were going to be hit 48 hours before we were hit. So what did you know and when did you know it? 48 hours before. They did nothing to secure any of the embassies. They didn't alert the embassies, nor the ambassadors, including the ambassador that was traveling back, coming into Libya. They didn't alert him. They obviously killed him, they ‑‑ rumors ‑‑ or not rumors. Reports from the Middle East now are that he was Sodomized before they killed him and then they got our basic knock list. They got our list of our safehouses and they got a list of those who are helping us.

Can you tell me, is there anybody in Washington that has a concern that the president of the United States and our State Department knew about this in advance and did nothing?

GOHMERT: Well, yes. There's a bunch of us that are, but getting that to manifest itself in actual legislation seems a little difficult. Because, gee, we don't want to raise too big a fuss, Glenn. I mean, gollee, you know about this. There are consequences if you stand up for what you believe. Heck, you might ‑‑ you might lose your sponsors if you're a talk show host; or if you're running for office, you know, people not give to you or people might not vote for you. In fact, Glenn, the number one thing that we heard during orientation eight years ago when I got elected, and it was true in both parties, other people and Democrats said that we were told, we were taught, drilled into us the best thing you can do for your country is get reelected. And it made me mad every time I heard it because sometimes, you know what? You just may have to take a stand for the good of the country, the good of the future, and it may cost you but then as you have found ‑‑ but when you do that, you know, God can work things together for good. It may hurt for a little bit but, by golly, there will be something better come down the road. And those of us that know that are not afraid to stand up ‑‑

GLENN: Let me ‑‑

GOHMERT: ‑‑ no matter what happens, but there are not enough people obviously that are doing that yet.

GLENN: If you don't have enemies, you don't have character.

GOHMERT: Well, my team staff says, "Well, you know you're over the target again because you're picking up a lot of flack."

GLENN: Well, what can ‑‑ what can the American people do? Should they call their senators or ‑‑

GOHMERT: Absolutely. Everybody that has a concern needs to call both of your senators and tell them, you call your leadership in both parties, Republican and Democrat, you call your leaders and say, "Hey, Rand Paul and Jim Inhofe are right and we should not let any more money go to these countries. Not for now. This is too important." And, you know, the message that goes out is that we're ‑‑ we may look strong on our school ground but you we are scared of the bullies and we will pay these little bitty bullies just to try to leave us alone, we'll give them our lunch money. That never worked in elementary school; it doesn't work in the big world when they're killing our people, our servants, our public servants like Stevens. I mean, it's an outrage, and people need to be upset. But you've got to give it to the president. You know, here you have four people killed in the line of duty when they didn't even warn them, and he does, though. He does bother to take a minute and a half from his busy campaign and fundraising out in Las Vegas and say, hey, it's been a tough week there. You know, we lost some people. All right, now back to the big celebration and how great I am. You know, you've got to give it to him. He did pause long enough to pay a little tribute to those folks.

GLENN: Louis ‑‑ Louie Gohmert, the represent in Texas from congress. The number, by the way, to call your senators, 202‑224‑3121. 202‑224‑3121. Tell them not another dime to Egypt and to Libya. We are on the wrong side. And the president ‑‑

GOHMERT: Thank you.

GLENN: ‑‑ and I believe the State Department know it. Thank you very much, Louie.

GOHMERT: Glenn, thank you so very much.

GLENN: You're welcome.

GOHMERT: God bless you.

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.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
