Food Stamp glitch sparks massive shopping frenzy in Louisiana

A shocking situation unfolded in Louisiana over the weekend, after a glitch in the Electronic Benefits Transfer system allowed government food stamp recipients to make purchases sans any spending limits.

According to TheBlaze:

For two hours Saturday night, customers rang up overflowing cartloads of food at stores in Springhill and Mansfield, La., after cashiers allowed them to use their EBT cards anyway despite not showing limits, KSLA-TV reported.

Police were called in to help manage the chaos, but no arrests were made and no one was unruly, Lynd said. Mansfield police confirmed officers were called in for crowd control but no arrests were made there, either.

After the system came back online, customers abandoned their carts and left the store, leaving a huge mess behind.

“At the same time, the press is not willing to show you another story… Nobody was talking about the glitch that happened in Louisiana… It's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Nobody wants to talk about it because it's theft. And we know exactly who took it because they had to use their food stamp card,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But here was the glitch. There was no limit. So, what did people do… They emptied the entire store… It was free food. It was free everything. Come and get it. Take your cars. Pack them up. Bring your friends… People had cart after cart after cart. When people came with actual cash, there was no food left. There was nothing left in the Wal-Mart. Animals. Theft. And I can guarantee you no one will prosecute them because they are not the forgotten men.”

“They are the one that takes from the forgotten man,” he continued. “They are the one that the government has gone to them and said, it's not fair the way you have to live. And so, I'm going to solve it for you. And so, politician A looks at suffering person B and says, for your vote, I will take it from person C and give it to you. That's the forgotten man. So, they stole from you. But politician A certainly won't tell you that because that will hurt his constituent B because A and B don't really give a flying crap about you at C.”

To truly understand the scope of the theft, you have to watch a local KSLA report of the incident:

“That’s your natural human reaction? No, that's the natural animal reaction. Are you a man or an animal? That's the way animals behave. We're citizens. Humans show some responsibility,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “I'm disgusted by the people that we happen to live with, the people that we're turning into. The people quite honestly we're supposedly helping. How are we helping? They knew they were doing wrong. They knew they were doing wrong. Will anybody prosecute them? Nope. Anybody who did it should lose their card.”

In the aftermath of such an incomprehensible incident, there is a larger cultural conversation to be had. The culture of dependency that has grown exponentially under this Administration has eliminated the need for accountability. ‘Free’ phones. ‘Free’ healthcare. ‘Free’ food. People fail to realize nothing in life is free. Someone, somewhere is paying for your fraud.

“It was a glitch. No, I paid for it. And he paid for it. And she paid for it. And the people that are checking you out that are working, they paid for it. We all paid for it. And you, you have grown so accustomed to just taking it. There's no shame. Quite honestly, I don't want people who are on welfare and need to be on welfare to be ashamed. But I would like you to feel a little gratitude. I would like you to feel a little like, gosh, you know what? I'm going to get off this as soon as I can,” Glenn said. “Why isn't this story going to be everywhere? Why isn't this story told all over CNN? You want to talk about corruption? You want to talk about a glitch? You want to talk about a society in a death spiral, there it is. Go ahead, MSNBC, go ahead and show the world what you are creating. Why don't you show what this President is doing to people. And if that's not putting people back into chains, I don't know what is.”

“I know you have been kept down, but what have you done about it? What have you done to better yourself,” Glenn asked. “What are you doing with your life? For all those whites, blacks, Hispanics, purple, white, I don't care what color they are. For all those people, if there were any that went with their food stamp card and said, ‘No, this is all I'm supposed to get.’ And they just bought what they were supposed to buy. As a citizen, thank you. If they did exist. I doubt they did. But one would like to still hope that we have not all turned into thieves and animals.”

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.
