‘This is suicide’: Glenn reacts to new EPA regulations

On Monday, the Obama Administration laid out its energy policy for the remainder of Obama's presidency. While President Obama did not personally present the damaging regulations he hopes to see implemented, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy sought to justify the EPA's sweeping new regulation on power plant emissions during a Washington press conference.

McCarthy blamed climate change for rising medical bills, higher insurance costs, and an increased frequency in devastating storms.

“If we do nothing, in our grandkids' lifetimes, temperatures could rise 10 degrees and seas could rise by 4 feet," she claimed. “Climate inaction is costing us more money, in more places, more often. 2012 was the second most expensive year in U.S. history for natural disasters."

TheBlaze Pete Kasperowicz reports:

On Monday morning, the EPA released its regulatory plan, which seeks to cut carbon emissions from power plants by 30 percent in 2030, compared to 2005 levels. Early assessments of that plan indicate that many power plants are nearly halfway to that mark, since the baseline of 2005 was before the recession hit.

[…]

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said he would propose legislation this week to stop the EPA rule from taking effect, and called it a job killer that would also raise prices on Americans who use energy.

[…]

The EPA is planning for its rule to take effect in June 2015, and on Monday it started the process of taking public comments on the rule. The EPA plans to take comments for 120 days, and will hold hearings in late July in Atlanta, Denver, Pittsburgh and Washington DC.

While on the campaign trail in 2008, then-Senator Obama promised that under his energy policy “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." It now looks as though that promise is closer to becoming a reality. On radio this morning, Glenn took a look at the potentially crippling economic side effects of the new regulation.

As Glenn explained, the quality of life in the United States is what we enjoy today largely because we have enjoyed relatively cheap energy prices. Once those prices necessarily skyrocket, the spending power of the American people will evaporate.

“Do you know we're the only country really that's buying the iPhone? This is why Apple is, in the end, doomed for failure… This is all about who can have the lowest price, not the highest price… My kids think that because we have the iPhone, the rest of the world does, too. No, it doesn't. We are a unique group of people," Glenn explained. “You get to decide whether you want to live that way or not, and we can decide together whether that is worth, you know, $1,000 or $600 for an iPhone or not… That's for each individual to decide, but at least you have the power to make that decision in America. You have the spending power. And the reason why we've always had that is because we've always had cheap energy."

Ultimately, Glenn fears what will happen if we have another summer or winter of extreme temperatures if the emissions really are to be cut as President Obama hopes:

Now, here's the most terrifying thing that no one in the press has reported. Our last winter was so bad, we were one power plant away… from shutting the entire grid down. We were taking so much electricity out of the power grid to keep our homes warm… if we would have had one power plant go down, it would have spiraled the power grid in the Northeast, and the Northeast would have had a blackout for God only knows how long. We were one power plant down last year.

[President Obama] wants to reduce emissions by one-third. There is no way for that to happen unless you turn off power plants, unless you say, 'I'm just gonna turn this one off.' That's what he wants. That's what he's saying here. He's saying, 'You can have a power plant. You'll just go bankrupt doing it.' So what are they going to do? They'll shut it off. Don't you understand, America? It might sound fine and dandy, but by reducing the emissions, you won't be able to charge your fancy iPhone or your fancy iPad. You won't be able to have all of your TVs running in all of your big, spacious house. And you won't be able to keep it warm. You won't be able to keep it cold. You won't have the power to do it.

More importantly, what's going to power our universities? Nothing, I hope. What's gonna power our businesses? How much more are the people who are using a lot of energy to make paper, to make plastics, to make anything – I'm trying to think of things that we make in America anymore. I don't even know what we make here. How are you going to keep the ports open to be able to use the big cranes to get all the ships off from all the crap we purchased from China that we no longer make? How are you going to do that? You won't have the energy to do it.

"This is suicide," Glenn concluded. "Suicide."

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.
