Media and crowd gush during Inauguration coverage

Since the start of the New Year, Glenn has refrained from talking about the President as much as possible. But with every news outlet on the planet talking about Inauguration Day, Glenn could not totally escape the coverage of ‘that guy’.

“Now, yesterday the President gave his inauguration speech, and I'm proud to say I saw the highlights of it and that was only with a gun to my head,” Glenn said to open the radio show this morning. “That was somebody saying, ‘You have to watch this, or I pull the trigger.’ And so I watched a little bit of it – as much as I could stand.”

The President seemed to spend a lot of time talking about how it is time to act on all of the progressive policies he couldn’t enact during his first term (for fear of retribution) because he has a lot more latitude now.

“It’s time for a lot of stuff,” Pat said. “Immigration and amnesty. It’s time for climate change.”

“You know what it's time for,” Glenn continued. “Job creation and spending cuts.”

“No, not time for that,” Pat joked.

After all, social issues and environmental policies are far more important than, say, the unemployment rate and the fact that 88 million Americans are out of work.

“He's got some schools to build, which I thought we were doing last time. He's got railroads to build, which I thought we were doing last time. He's got some teachers to hire, which I thought we were going to do last time. And hire some cops, which I thought we were doing last time,” Glenn said.

Despite the nature of the ideological diatribe the President gave, his friends in the media were more than happy to instantly declare the speech inspirational or, in the case of Chris Matthews, “Licoln-esque.”

When you compare Lincoln’s inaugural address to this president’s, the similarities become abundantly clear:

“They both gave their inaugural address in English,” Glenn quipped.

Over at CNN, correspondent Jim Acosta had a “thrill going up my leg moment” when he giddily reported:

KOSTA: Obviously this is the moment that everybody is waiting for on Inauguration Day, when the President and the First Lady step out of their limo and walk down Pennsylvania avenue. I feel like I should pinch myself.

“I think I should pinch myself,” Glenn asked in disgust. “Are you not a grown man and a journalist?”

Meanwhile, Al Roker squealed like a teenage girl while trying to get Vice President Joe Biden’s attention on the parade route, and politicians fawned over celebrities like Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson.

The press also spent a lot of time referencing the respectable (but not nearly as impressive as 2009) 800,000 person crowd that has assembled in Washington D.C.

“I've never felt this way about [the President's] crowds. This is the first time I've ever seen the crowds and thought, this is the USSR. This is the way it happens in North Korea,” Glenn said. “I expected them all of a sudden to make patterns spelling out of his name.”

Stu insisted that it wasn’t so much the pomp and pageantry, but the message that was conveyed by the President in his speech that should be most alarming. Glenn still took issue with the television production of the event.

“It was just the way it was shot,” Glenn said. “It looked weird. It didn't look – it didn't look American.”

Ultimately, Glenn, Pat, and Stu managed to watch very little of the day’s events.

“[Inauguration coverage] came on the TV after the news. I had to run to the other side of the room, and get the stupid remote, and change it,” Stu said. “I just pressed the button and it landed on another local news channel that was covering it. It was torture. I just wanted it to end.”

Glenn, on the other hand, took a slightly different approach.

“That's why I have a gun,” Glenn said. “I shot my TVs out.”

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.
