Glenn reacts to last night’s NYC mayoral debate between a radical leftist and an alleged TEA Party supporter

Based on the poll numbers, New York City is well on its way to electing a far left radical with a frightening past as its next mayor. And last night, Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio and Republican candidate Joe Lhota squared off in the first of three debates.

“Last night we had the initial debate for mayor in New York City,” Pat said on radio this morning. “And you have a socialist certainly, maybe even a Communist, in Bill de Blasio.”

“Wait a minute. Hang on. He raised money for the Sandinistas, a Soviet front group. So what would make you say that he was a Communist,” Glenn joked. “He went on his honeymoon to Cuba, against the law, but he had connections in Communist Cuba. What would make you say he was a Communist?”

A few weeks ago, Glenn put together a package highlighting the frighteningly radical past of de Blasio:

But during last night’s mayoral debate, the only thing anyone seemed to care about was the fact that de Blasio’s opponent, Joe Lhota, once spoke at a TEA Party event.

“Well, but see, none of that matters because Joe Lhota, the candidate who's opposing him, actually went to a TEA Party once,” Pat explained. “He's that extreme. Listen to it in the debate last night.”

DE BLASIO: …Go to Washington, fight to bring sanity to end this TEA Party madness, work with the financial community that knows how dangerous this crisis is. But let's be clear: The same TEA Party that Joe Lhota reached out to for their support in Staten Island, these are the same folks who are causing this problem, the same TEA Party, the same extremist Republicans who say let's delay Obamacare or let's get rid of Obamacare. Well, Mr. Lhota agrees with them that we should get rid of Obamacare. He is enabling the same worldview that has put us in this crisis.

LHOTA: I didn't go to the TEA Party for support at all. They invited me to come to speak, and I went to speak as I will in any community in any party. So the idea that I went there for their support is absolutely wrong. But what I will tell you is that regarding the situation, regarding Obamacare, I think it's very important to talk about this. What I basically said is that we need to delay it for one year. And the reason why we need to delay it for one year is the government doesn't have their act together.

“Who's going to win,” Glenn asked.

Considering de Blasio currently holds a 50-point lead in the polls, it is safe to say New York City will soon experience life under a socialist government. Glenn had a message for all his staffers in New York:

“Yeah, the Communist will win,” Glenn said. “Attention all Blaze staffers in New York: We will always run shows and always have things to do here in New York, but your taxes are going to go through the roof. Your life is going to become a living hell in New York. I want you to know clearly: The company has 150,000 square feet of studio space in Texas where the taxes amount to zero, from freedom is running rampant in the streets. Instead of people that are crazy, wetting themselves and wanting to stab all people with any kind of a job. Attention, all Blaze staffers: There are planes departing New York daily.”

Pat then played the ad the de Blasio campaign is currently running:

“He just spews his Communist garbage cloaked in ‘We're New Yorkers,’” Pat said. “And that's how he's winning this election.”

“It's hope and change,” Glenn added. “What did he just say? All he said was: I'm going to raise taxes. I'm going to expect you to do more. Translation: What Mrs. President said: My husband knows. He knows. You're not going to be able to go back to your old life… Well, that's what he's doing. And if you don't want to do it his way, it's the highway. You have a Communist takeover in New York. And New York, you're going to get what you deserve. And I hate to say this, but look at what this city is already like compared to what it was five years ago.”

“I was in this city, where you were afraid to stop your car in the 1980s,” he continued. “You never wanted to stop at a stoplight because there was somebody who was homeless that was brutal, that because you had a car, you owed them. And it started in the 1970s. And they would come and they would squirt water on your car, take a piece of newspaper that was on the floor, wipe it once and then slam on your windshield, ‘Pay up.’ And you just prayed every step of the way, ‘Just don't let me hit any red lights. Please, please, please don't let me hit any red lights.’ And if you did, you wanted to be about five or six cars back from the front.”

“That's exactly where this city is going again,” Glenn concluded. “This city is going to be an absolute nightmare because they are pitting people against each other. This is the Occupy Wall Street attitude."

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."
