Rand Paul's plan to grow the economy

Senator Rand Paul delivered the Tea Party's response to President Obama's State of the Union address last night. This morning the Senator, who Glenn believes is the first Libertarian to have a real shot at becoming President of the United States, joined the radio program to discuss his thoughts on the President's speech, his response, Chris Kyle, and more.

TheBlaze was the only TV network to carry Senator Paul's response last night, in which Rand proposed a 5-year balanced budget plan which would introduce a 17% flat tax and cuts to regulations on American businesses. The Senator explained to Glenn that would of the motivations behind his plan is the idea that "revenue neutral" tax reform will somehow benefit the economy.

"Revenue neutral does nothing for the economy," he explained. "It means one person will pay less and another person will pay more."

He went on to explain that if you really want to stimulate the economy, you have to leave more money in the economy. The GOP is not doing the things that have won them elections in the past, Paul explained.

"We need to be bold. We need to say what we're for, and we need to explain that we're for less money up here and more money in the hands of those who earned it," he told Glenn.

"If you really want to stimulate the economy, you need to do some dramatic things. Because money goes where it's welcome, and it's not welcome in the U.S., so it's going to other countries," the Senator added.

Rand Paul went on the address where he stands on immigration reform. Much to the surprise of the mainstream media, Paul sees immigrants as assets to the country. He is looking to work with the plan being put together in Congress to add an amendment called "trust but verify." This would allow the reforms to take place over a 5 year period in steps — but they only continue if each year Congress votes for border security.

Last night the president basically said that if Congress doesn't go for a carbon tax, he'll use executive order to implement it. The Senator's response is go away — it will be challenged. Recently, the GOP won a big victory against Obama's recess appointments — an enormous restraint on the office of the presidency. And those victories will continue if every time the President tries to go around the Constitution he is challenged.

"He will flout the law when he can so he has to be restrained by the courts," Sen. Paul said.

Sen. Paul went on to express how impressed he was with Mercury One for their efforts in helping the Kyle family and his shared surprise the the president is yet to say anything publicly about the death of the fallen American hero.

Glenn being Glenn, of course had one last question for Senator Paul — a classic Glenn question: "How's your spiritual well-being?"

The Senator responded by explaining that when he was first running he used to here from a lot of people that "they were praying for him," and he wasn't exactly sure he took it as seriously as he should. That's not the case now.

"I do need your prayers," Sen. Paul told Glenn's radio audience. "And I do need the strength to go on with this because it isn't always easy. But really…I think our country's problems are deeper than political. We need spiritual leaders to come forward. We need something beyond just the politics of the day. I see it everywhere — something really depraved is rising in the country. We need something bigger than any politician at this point."

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.
