Woman Arrested for refusing smart meter

Glenn called this story one of the most important issues that will be ramping up in the months and years to come. A woman refused to allow workers to enter her property and install a ‘smart’ meter. The woman refused the update and ended up being arrested over it. Glenn talked more on radio today about why you should be concerned.

"Let me tell you about Jennifer Stahl. She has been a strong advocate against the smart meter program in Naperville, Illinois. She's been talking about it and standing up against it for two years. The issue came to head on Wednesday afternoon when she was arrested for refusing to let the utility workers install the smart meter on her home. She said, 'I was protecting my property,' she said in an interview with TheBlaze yesterday afternoon. 'I felt my emotion was like a mama bear protecting her babies.' Stahl was at a friend's house when she received the call from her husband that the utility workers had arrived. She was home within 15 minutes and saw that they were at a neighbor's house. Her neighbor was not home, but they had signs stating that they did not permit the new meter to be installed."

"Stahl said she waited on her porch for the workers to arrive at her house. When they did, she refused them access to her backyard through her locked gate. Police, including the list supervisor, a sergeant, were called. Stahl said the sergeant explained the workers had authorization to access the meter, but Stahl stood her ground, said she didn't approve the new smart meter. The sergeant continued to try to convince Stahl to comply and said if she didn't, he'd have to arrest her. 'The City has always had and maintains the right to access our equipment and today we're just simply exercising that right,' says the city manager."

"The lock on Stahl's fence was cut and when Stahl wouldn't step away from the meter, she was led away by an officer, cuffed, and waited for a marked squad car to arrive to take her to the police department. When asked why she was being arrested, she was told it was for interfering with a police officer."

"Naperville Smart Meter Awareness has filed suit for which there are currently motions to dismiss as well as to grant temporary restricting orders for residents refusing meters. Tom Glass, member of the Naperville Smart Meter Awareness group told TheBlaze Thursday that he felt that the City is arresting residents for refusing is completely frightening in this day and age. The City is sending around people to read these smart meters and they don't work."

What does this mean for you? Glenn explained, "I hate to look like I'm anti-technology because, you know, it is an easier way to read the meters. But it is also a way to ‑ it is not just taking some information out. It is able to understand everything in your house. How, you know, how much juice are you pulling, which appliances, what's going on. They can tell just by reading this smart meter. How many people are in your house? Now, they can do that as well but not electronically. The system can go out. They're already, they're already eavesdropping on you on everything else. Now they're able to tell exactly what you're doing in your house, how you're using it, and then they can limit."

Glenn encouraged listeners to "spit themselves out of the system" and look for ways to unplug from the existing structures out there that they are dependent on. Glenn said he was working on his own energy projects to do just that because he doesn't want to be tied to existing systems further down the road.

"We're living in a different world and new technology, you have to understand is either going to free you or enslave you. Which is it going to be? And some things, if you play into the system more than you already are, you will end up at least being a candidate for slavery. Remember when I said spit yourself out of the system, I didn't even know what that meant and I think I used to say I don't know what that means. I do know what that means now. You detach yourself from the Borg as much as you possibly can. You don't go ‑‑ at least you don't go any further than you already are."

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."
