SURPRISE! Glenn's staff hijacks his 5pm show for a special trip down memory lane

As you may have heard, Glenn turned the big 5-0 today. He arrived at the studio this afternoon fully prepared to deliver an epic monologue on Russian communism and the Winter Olympics, but his staff had other plans. TheBlaze team worked overtime to put together a massive surprise birthday show for Glenn. Entitled "This is your life", Pat and Stu served as emcee for the ultimate trip down memory lane. From his sister to his first radio boss to former on air co-hosts, Glenn was joined by some of the most influential people in his life.

The guests included a wide range of people who had influenced Glenn over the years. There was former Mount Vernon (Glenn's hometown) Mayor Bud Norris. Michael O’Shea, the former general manager of Kube Radio, was there and talked about helping Glenn get started in radio.

Other radio industry leaders stopped by the studio, including Gabe Hobbs who helped Glenn transition from working in music radio into talk radio, the format for which he is now known.

Glenn's former co-host at Y95 Tim Hattrick, stopped by and talked about one of the weirdest commercials Glenn has ever done (see below), as did Glenn's co-host from KC101 Vinnie Penn. Mike McGowan, who Glenn fired in his not-so-nice days, was also there and the two discussed how their reconciliation years later meant so much to Glenn.

Some of the most touching moments of the night came from people outside of Glenn's professional life, such as the final guest John Huntsman, Sr., who praised Glenn's philanthropy and personal donations to The Huntsman Cancer Center. Huntsman said that thanks in part to Glenn's help, he is confidant a cure to cancer can be found.

“You’re one of my heroes,” Huntsman told him.

Glenn's wife Tania, his children, Mary, Hannah, Raphe, and Cheyenne, his son-in-law, Tim, and granddaughter, Lorelei, also joined in on the birthday festivities. They shared their best memories, their favorite moments, and what they love most in a very touching video package.

Tania and the kids then arrived on set with the ultimate surprise of the night - a classic 1958 Chevrolet Apache.

"I have my Grandpa's truck," Glenn exclaimed excitedly."I have wanted a truck like my Grandpa's for I don't know how long."

Things didn't end there. After the cameras stopped rolling Glenn had a surprise party waiting for him in the lobby of The Mercury Studios.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

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."
