Awwww! Charles Manson got a girlfriend

We have a saying around the Mercury Studios - love is contagious. And it looks like Charles Manson and a really misguided young lady have caught the fever! That's right, America's best known psychopath Charles Manson has found love and is getting married. If it can happen to him, it truly can happen to anyone!

The guys reacted to the news on radio this morning:

FOX News reported:

Mass murderer Charles Manson has gotten a license to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison.

The Kings County marriage license, viewed Monday by The Associated Press, was issued Nov. 7 for the 80-year-old Manson and Afton Elaine Burton, who left her Midwestern home nine years ago and moved to Corcoran, California — the site of the prison — to be near Manson. She maintains several websites advocating Manson's innocence.

The license does not specify a wedding date and indicates the couple has 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.

"It's creepy weird. She moved there to be with him when she was 19 years old. She has to be very disturbed," Glenn said. " He's missing teeth. He has the swastika on his forehead. He's not a good-looking man. He's one of the men that make me feel good about myself."

Glenn said that the story reminds him of an old Irish saying, where one man comes upon another man and asks for directions.

"You know, there's this Irish tale or saying, and a visitor is walking down the street. In the farm country of Ireland. And he comes across a farmer. And he says, hey, can you help me? I'm lost and I need to get back right back on track."

"The farmer says, sure. Where you headed?"

"The visitor tells him. The farmer sits there for a while and scratches his face and looks down at the dirt and then looks up at the sky and then looks at the guy and says, yeah, if that's where you're going, I wouldn't start from here."

"And I love that story because that's the way life is. If that's where you're headed, you can't get there from here. But you have to. And I think the problem is, is that families will look at somebody like this, and you'll say, I just love her so much. We have to give her a chance. We got to do this. People just know. You know what's the right thing to do. You just do, but you dismiss it all the time. And it's because you're like, no, we got to get back on track."

"No. Those and it's have been passed, you're not going to go back that way. It's a completely different route now. I know you're standing out in the middle of the field, and I know where you want to go, and you're right, you shouldn't start from here. But you got to shed the past. Shed what you thought you knew and I'll show you a completely new path. Unfortunately, I think too many of us we look at the things going on in life, and we look at people in our life, and we know what the right thing to do is, we just don't want to accept it."

"I think if you're her dad, you're looking at that like, I can't. Dad, I got it.  I get it.  But you got to listen to common sense.  She's checked out.  She has checked out.  And you have to do the right thing for the rest of your family.  That would be so hard, wouldn't it?  Imagine your daughter, that would be so hard."

The guys wondered what the rest of this woman's life looks like after making headlines as the wife of Charles Manson. Who would hire her? Who would want to associate with her?

"What happens after?  Obviously, he's going to die in prison at some point in the near future.  She's going to be 35, 37 years old. now widowed from a mass murderer.  What does the rest of her life look like?" Stu asked.

 

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.
