Just how big a threat does the U.S. power grid face?

On Thursday’s Glenn Beck Program, TheBlaze’s technology and intelligence editor Elizabeth Kreft will join Glenn to discuss the threat the United States power grid faces. Earlier this month, TheBlaze’s investigative news magazine For The Record looked at how the power grid is virtually “unguarded” against threats – both foreign and domestic – and now it seems as though over-regulation may lead to massive blackouts.

“Oh, man. I was just talking with Elizabeth Kreft, our technology expert from The Blaze. I was just talking to her off-line for something we are going to do tonight. It is truly amazing the amount of information and important news that nobody knows,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Next year at this time, if we have the kind of weather we are currently having, you mark my words… the east coast will have no power. It will be in total blackout.”

Glenn explained that a couple of weeks ago he had a good friend and energy expert come to him about the energy crisis the U.S. currently faces. While Glenn is familiar with the terror threat the power grid faces, he had no idea about the effect weather and over-regulation could have.

“Here's why,” Glenn said. “I had an energy guy come to me about three weeks ago, and he said, ‘Glenn, you've got to talk about the power grid’… I said, ‘We are talking about the power grid. You’re talk about the terrorists?’ He said, ‘No, the power grid from the winter. Nobody will cover this. I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ He said, ‘We were one power plant away from a blackout in the east all winter long… We were using so much electricity. We were at the top of the grid. There's no more electricity. We're at the top.’”

After having that conversation with his friend, Glenn asked TheBlaze team to further investigate the matter. On Thursday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn will begin to go through some of what the investigation yielded.

“I asked Elizabeth to look into it, and she is going to report tonight. It is phenomenal. She's going to report about how 75% of the power stations – the electrical generation power stations – 75% of those power stations that are scheduled to close on [January 1, 2015] were online at full capacity. And they were looking for more power… Again, if one of them would have gone off-line, the entire grid would have shut off,” Glenn said. “75% of those that are slated for closure were online at full capacity this winter. And the EPA is closing them because they're coal fire plants.”

Remember when President Obama said energy prices “will necessarily skyrocket”? Well, we are approaching that tipping point.

“I want you to know, your energy prices will necessarily skyrocket, and you will have – at least – rolling blackouts all over the east,” Glenn said. “But here's the other thing the EPA is doing. Not only are they closing down the power plants, the EPA just passed a regulation on natural gas… The EPA has just passed a regulation that all of the pumps for the natural gas now have to be electric. They cannot be run by natural gas. So if you're pumping the natural gas into the lines, those pumps have to be electric. And the reason why is because ‘no fossil fuels.’”

Situations like this really put the “insanity” of government on full display.

“So if you have a rolling blackout or a full-fledged collapse of the power grid, next year you will also not be able to get natural gas because the pumps are going to be run off of the grid on electricity,” Glenn concluded. “So you'll have plenty of natural gas. You just won't be able to use any of it. Isn't that great? It's the insanity of this government.”

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."
