Mary Matalin joins the show to talk cable news, the GOP...and tortures Stu

Yesterday CNN announced some major changes in their lineup. Among these was a host of names that will no longer appear on the network. Two of the most notable being James Carville, and a personal friend of Glenn's, Mary Matalin. This morning, when Matalin called into the show she had a different focus. The former CNN contributor didn't spend much time discussing her former employer, instead she mostly spent her time on the show torturing Stu.

You see, Stu prides himself on having attending the Super Bowl the last six years in a row, and this year is no different. However this year, instead of hunting down tickets once he arrives, Stu is trying to take advantage of Glenn's friendship with Mary Matalin. What can she do to help? Well, Matalin and her husband are co-chairs of this year's Super Bowl Host Committee.

"Oh, Glenn, I'm great and I've been meaning to call," Mary said as she greeted Glenn over the phone this morning. "You know I listen every day but I haven't been able to listen, I've been so busy.  I'm co‑hosting the Super Bowl here and I've been meaning to call to see if Pat wanted to come to anything."

Ouch. Sorry, Stu.

Pat and Glenn, of course, played right along. Noting that he can't make it, but that Mary should auction off for charity. That was someone with a lot of extra money [i.e. Stu] could bid on it and do some good.

"How about game day tickets or something like that?" Mary joked.

The ideas kept rolling in — none of which were good for Stu.

"How about this:  Pat and Stu come down.  Pat goes to the game and we auction off walk‑ins to the free things with Stu," she said. "How is that?"

After quite a bit more mocking, Glenn got down to business and asked Mary about her departure from CNN. Of all the people they actually kept around, he couldn't believe they would let her go.

"I feel the same way leaving as you did," Mary responded.

"Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I'm free at last?" Glenn joked.

"I'm raising kids. I have to control my schedule," she said. "They [CNN] have built all new studios and they want people there that can get there on a moment's notice. And not only can I not do that, I'm too old in my life to do that. I don't want to follow those kind of stories.  So I'm not ‑‑ I have many friends there, I've had them for a million years, I love John King.  I love Anderson."

Glenn noted his fondness of Cooper and Blitzer from his time at CNN.

"I think they are honorable men. I really do. I like them. They are nice guys," he said.

Glenn transitioned to the state of the GOP, explaining his feelings that the party is basically over.

"I'm done with the GOP.  How do we hold onto our country when the GOP is just ‑‑ they are just folding on absolutely everything and I don't know what they stand for anymore," Glenn said to Mary.

"Let's go to first principle," Mary responded. "Why ‑‑ the first principle for me is the reason I became a conservative, growing up in south Chicago, I didn't know any Republicans." The college I went to, 17,000 kids, there were 11 Republicans. The reason I became a conservative is because those were the days of this wave of, this new wave of 'progressivism feminism'. It was like a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bike. I said, "that's it. I love men, I want men in my life." I didn't want to do that group think thing. I'm going back to first principles here."

Much like Glenn, Mary moved to an area with a stronger community. Where they can fix their educational system and surround themselves with good entrepreneurial people.

"You're exactly ‑‑ Mary, that's exactly where I am.  I don't care about Washington anymore," he told her. "We have to watch them. We have to make sure that we're paying attention. They're out of control. I don't believe in either party right now but I do believe in the American people. I do believe we have to fix our families, fix our street, fix our town."

"Fix our state," he added. "If our states are all rock solid, Washington, Washington needs us more than we need them and we have to put that ‑‑ we have to put that situation back into play."

"When we moved here, I started listening to you every day, and you changed my perspective. You changed my life. You've made me a more committed citizen and every day think of how can I help somebody, what can I do to have an impact," Mary said to Glenn. "And if everybody's in the know knew that there's so many people out there that think like that. Just knowing that there are more of us, as you say, and all the news that you do bring to us -- that's a huge ‑‑ that's a calling.  Nobody else can do it.  Nobody's been determined enough to do it."

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.
