WATCH: Powerful new commercials preach "work is a beautiful thing"

A new crop of commercials is drawing on values of hard work and ingenuity that once made America great. A new ad for the Cadillac ELR is aimed at “workers, not wishers.” Walmart, meanwhile, released what has become a controversial ad featuring Mike Rowe. It contains one powerful message: “Work is a beautiful thing.” On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the pro-work message.

The Cadillac ELR is a new electric vehicle from the brand. While Cadillac was part of the infamous government auto bailout, the commercial explains that it is an unmatched work ethic and desire for more that got a man to the moon and made Americans the world’s best consumers.

“I want to point out Cadillac got a… bailout from us. I'm tired of people telling me, preaching to me, ‘We're the greatest country in the world because we just get it done. By the way, thanks for the billions of dollars of bailout because we just couldn't get it done,’” Glenn said. “[But] I want you to listen to this [commercial] and tell me that this isn't what America is starving for."

Watch the commercial below:

This is a message that President Ronald Reagan eloquently delivered, and it took him all the way to White House. Glenn believes Americans are desperate to hear those ideals once again, but it is unclear who is in a position to deliver them.

“This is what Reagan won on because he believed it. We are repeating the 1970s, and they don't even see it. Remember, we went from Nixon, who was just riddled with corruption, riddled with progressivism…  He really washed our innocence away… So then we went from Nixon to Ford, who was just an imbecile, into the socialist country of America, the socialist direction of Jimmy Carter,” Glenn said. “Jimmy Carter was telling us, ‘Put a sweater on.’ Americans don't put a sweater on. Americans go find new energy.  That's what we do… If you give a man a handout, he loses a piece of himself. He loses self-respect. You have to earn it. This is the winning message."

“Now, I don't know who is going to come and deliver that message to America,” he continued. “But if we really want to survive, if we really want to make a difference, we will hear that message. That message is the message that will win in every place, every place. It will win.”

Pat and Stu both pointed out that Cadillac is a higher end car manufacturer, and the base price of the ELR is $75,995. Is this message of hard work and dedication one that is purely aimed at the wealthy?

“Is it notable at all that this is a commercial targeted at Cadillac buyer – somewhat of an upscale buyer,” Stu said. “This message in our past resonates to Chevy buyers, and Ford buyers, and Kia buyers, anybody. This should be the message that resonates with every American.

“I think it does,” Glenn interjected. “I don't think this is a rich man's [message]. This is an American message.”

Another commercial that gained a tremendous amount of attention is Mike Rowe’s appearance in a new Walmart ad called “I am a factory.” It coincided with the launch of Walmart’s initiative to purchase $250 billion of American-made products over the next 10 years. Many have since criticized Rowe for partnering with the retail giant because he is supposed to champion the little guy. Not standing by idly, however, Rowe has since released an epic response.

“Play the Mike Rowe ad for Walmart,” Glenn said. “He's getting crap because ‘Oh, Walmart. Why are you with Goliath instead of David?’ He said there's nothing inherently good about being small or inherently bad about being big. And it's true. It's absolutely true. Life is what you make of it.”

Check out the 60-second spot below:

“If Walmart is putting $250 billion into getting Americans back to work,” Pat said. “How do you bash them for that? Because they' so big? It is bizarre to criticize… What small guy is going to spend $250 billion getting Americans back to work?”

On Sunday, Rowe took to Facebook to take on his critics.

“Honestly Kevin, who gives a crap about your feelings toward Walmart?” Rowe asked one man who questioned Rowe’s decision to partner with Walmart, often a major target of those who like to demonize business.

“[D]ozens of American factories are going to reopen all over the country. Millions of dollars will pour straight into local economies, and hundreds of thousands of new manufacturing positions will need to be filled. That’s a massive undertaking packed with enormous challenges, and I want to help,” he added.

“Isn’t this the kind of initiative we can all get behind?” he concluded.

But there was more.

“I’ve looked up to you for the longest time,” said the same man, Kevin. “What happened to your support of the underdogs? Sad times Mike.”

Rowe didn’t hold back:

Be strong, Kevin. I’m flattered that you’ve looked up to me in the past. Hopefully, I’ll redeem myself in the future. But I’ve never supported the “underdog” simply because they’re not the favorite. Size might matter in some pursuits, (I’ve been assured it does,) but in business, there’s nothing inherently good about being small, and nothing inherently bad about being big. My foundation supports skilled labor, American manufacturing, entrepreneurial risk, a solid work ethic, and personal responsibility. We reward these qualities wherever we find them, whether they’re in David or Goliath.

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."
