Mercury One update: $1.6m raised, countless helped in the aftermath of Sandy

Mercury One continues to raise money and aid for those affected by Hurricane Sandy in the New York/New Jersey area. Joe Kerry was on site and reported in on some of the amazing things he saw while in New York.

Joe writes:

We were invited to attend the church service at Pastor Connie's church.  Her church serves a very poor area of Coney Island where the spiritual and temporal needs are great.  Her church was flooded by Hurricane Sandy and sustained substantial damage.  Although the sewer water was pumped out of the basement in time for the church services the smell was present and powerful.  The church's heater was also non-operational due to water damage.  But the people were still there in the pews when services began.  They wore their coats, hats and gloves.  Services were going to be shorter so the congregation could organize for the 1pm food distribution activity.

When Pastor Connie arrived at church that morning, Mercury One was already in the parking lot waiting for arrival.  We spoke to her about the great work she and her church were doing and we presented her with a $100,000 check so here church could be properly cleaned, mold could be removed, dry wall knocked down and rebuilt. the water heater repaired and rain stained ceiling tile replaced.  We let her know that this money was raised by Glenn Beck and Mercury One from tens-of-thousands of people from across the country.  People that she never met cared about her and her neighborhood.  She was touched beyond words.  Tears streamed down her face as she said 'thank you'.

These supplies were delivered by 2 men who were inspired by watching The Blaze.  They were sitting in their living rooms watching The Blaze and saw Glenn talking about the Coney Island Church of God--how it was damaged by the storm, how the neighborhood was running short on food, water and hope.  These two men, on their own, arranged for two box trucks to meet them at Costco, where they purchased $50,000 worth of food, blankets, baby formula, fresh bananas, energy bars, water and diapers.  They then found out the location of the church and delivered all these goods to Pastor Connie.  If we want government to do less, we need to do more:

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."
