Rabbi: The greatest way out of depression is to serve someone else

Glenn: I want to introduce you to a friend of mine who about three years ago we had dinner. He’s on the left. I’m on the right. He’s a Rabbi. I’m a Christian, and we’re not supposed to get along. But somehow or another we have found our way to each other. And his name is Rabbi Irwin Kula, and he is a Rabbi in New York City and speaks all over the country and is a good gauge on what’s happening around the country, I think, because you do speak all over. And you see that we’re no different. We’re really all alike, are we not?

Rabbi Kula: Yeah well, I mean, the average person in the world, across the world, wants, you know, their kids to be healthy, wants to, you know, flourish as human beings.

Glenn: Palestinians and the Jews want the same thing.

Rabbi Kula: We have a leadership problem.

Glenn: Yeah, the machinery above them, but all the Palestinians and all the Jews I have ever met in Israel all say the same thing, “I just want to live my life, and I want to take care of my kids. I want to have a good life.” And really, we all have that in common. I am, as you know, fearful that there is no leadership anywhere in the country that is really truly making the case for what Martin Luther King called, you know, peaceful resistance and peaceful loving reconciliation. People are wanting revenge. The hatred is growing, the anger. Everybody feels like they’re been pushed up against the wall.

Rabbi Kula: The fear.

Glenn: Right, fear of what’s coming next, what’s happening to your world, it’s completely changing. How do you make the case that peaceful, that love and peace are the strongest tools you can grab?

Rabbi Kula: I think you start with people’s own experiences. When you ask people in their own communities, do they take care of each other, where are the places where they’re flourishing as human beings, people will tell you the stories about their own lives. They’ll tell you the story about a neighbor who helped. They’ll tell you a story about someone who came and drove their mother and them to the hospital. You’ll hear the stories on the ground of people who are helping each other and who are obligated to each other. What we have done is we have sensationalized in the media bad stories. There are many more good stories in the day than bad stories.

Glenn: Yeah.

Rabbi Kula: And we, and this is actually a conservative trope, what we’ve done is we’ve transferred and said our solutions are going to come from above. They’re not coming from above. Leadership has an interest in the status quo because the status quo gives you power if you’re a leader. We are only going to change things from the bottom up.

And you know what a living laboratory is? A living laboratory is not only every school, a living laboratory is every dining room. A living laboratory is every meeting room. A living laboratory is every park in this country. A living laboratory is every little place where people can act differently from one another, and if that sounds small, people don’t appreciate that we didn’t get here because of some massive big thing. We got here to 2014 with all the problems because of thousands and thousands and thousands of individual corrosive moments.

Now what we have to do is we need thousands and thousands and thousands of individual experiences between people that model exactly what we’re talking about. It’s not coming from above.

Glenn: Here’s, you know, people are afraid of losing their livelihood. They’re afraid, you know, I’m barely making it now, I don’t want to cause any trouble, and that’s what gets them to sit down and be quiet. How do you teach people know, no, it’s going to be okay, it’s going to be okay, even if you lose everything? Nobody wants to lose everything.

Rabbi Kula: One, people have to be in communities where they are taken care of, okay? You get the community you deserve. If you think you’re simply some radical individual who can do everything on your own, you know, kind of the liberal trope is we’re autonomous people who are self-made. There’s no such thing as autonomous people self-made who are completely on their own. We have mentors. We have friends. We have family. People need to belong to communities.

Communities is where we get the support to have the faith and the hope that we can get through anything that happens. And I’ve been to communities around this country, from mega-church communities to small, little communities. I was in a community in Dayton, Ohio, maybe there was 120 members of this church, small little community. When someone became unemployed, they helped each other. And that’s not an excuse.

Yes, I’m a little left of center, though less and less lately, but you know, in all honesty, less and less lately. It doesn’t mean that we don’t need unemployment insurance. It doesn’t mean that we don’t need help from the government. But we have to take responsibility.

Glenn: There’s things that the government can do, but it’s the last resort. It’s incumbent on us to be able to do it first. We should turn to each other.

Rabbi Kula: Right, and we all know that happiness points outwards. Flourishing points outwards. This isn’t a religious thing. This is now a scientific thing. If you want to be happy, here is the prescription for happiness, serve. Now, you don’t like the word serve because it’s too religious, and it makes you tense? And I’m not talking you. You know I’m talking to my liberal friends. You know, if you don’t like the word, take care of someone else.

We know one of the greatest ways out of depression, and I don’t mean medical where you really are depressed, and you need medication, the greatest way out of depression is to stand up and serve someone else who needs something. We know it. We know it scientifically. It’s not a religious thing anymore.

Glenn: I know. As an alcoholic, I know that to be true.

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.
