'American Sniper' Chris Kyle killed at Texas gun range

Glenn opened tonight's TV show with a tribute to Chris Kyle.

Mercury One is now raising money to honor Kyle. You can go HERE to donate. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to The Chris Kyle Memorial and The FITCO Fund, a non-profit started by Chris Kyle to help veterans overcome PTSD.

Original Story:

"Horrible tragedy happened this weekend," Glenn said as he started on radio today. "Chris Kyle, probably the greatest American sniper ever and a good, decent, decent man, he goes over and he is a Navy SEAL and he survives. He comes home, and he's helping another Serviceman. He's helping a guy who has PTSD and, you know, the best thing that you can do, when guys come home, a lot of our military, they're hunters and so they grow up in the culture of guns. And one of the best things that you can do is you get them back on the range, you get them back and put the positive spin on guns again and you put the hunting back into them. Well, we don't know all of the facts. I've heard stories this weekend but no need to get into them until we know that they're facts."

"Chris decides to help this guy out and he's on the range and he's helping him learn how to shoot, long‑range shoot. And he's down on the ground and apparently he looks up and that's when the guy he's trying to help opens fire and shoots him, on the range."

"I heard this this weekend and I ‑‑ I don't know what's happening to us. It is ‑‑ it is one of the strangest things on ‑‑ what was it, on Friday? Was it Thursday or Friday we had the DA here in Dallas shot and killed on the streets? It is so bizarre. To lose Chris Kyle, how many of our Servicemen and our Navy SEALs and our special forces are we going to have to lose? Over and over and over again they're traumatized."

"Our hearts go out to everybody who is involved, everybody. Our hearts go out to the military. And to Chris' family and quite honestly the shooter's family as well. They are going to try to make this into a "military is too dangerous to even have, you know, weapons, they're all psychos" and everything else. It is coming. Whether it happens this time or not. I'm surprised it hasn't already started to happen."

"But let's keep this into perspective on what is going on. The United States government is failing our military. We ask these guys to go out in our name and then it is an absolute nightmare to get any of the paperwork done. And to get the benefits and the paperwork done, what they're doing is they're telling all of our Service personnel, 'You know what you need to do? You need to just fill out ‑‑ just fill this out. Just say you have PTSD. Because it will make it so much easier.' So they're telling our military to say they have PTSD. And then what? And then what? We're not helping them."

"I talked to Rick Perry yesterday morning. I called up the governor of Texas and said, 'Okay, what happened? How did this happen? And what can we do?' And he said, 'Glenn, the State of Texas is ‑‑ we take care of our military.' He said we are ‑‑ he said, 'It is wrong that we have to write a check, but we're writing a check so we can get our veterans ‑‑ so they can get their benefits.' He said, 'The paperwork alone is an absolute nightmare.'"

"We'll get into it probably tomorrow. We have a couple of guests on tomorrow night's broadcast that we've been working on since we heard the news to tell you the story of what's happening to our military personnel. But our salute to Chris Kyle. Thank you, Chris. And to his family, we're sorry for your loss."

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.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
