The Story of King Barack and Robin Hood

Glenn took a different approach on-air today, reading a fairy-tale about a special king named Barack. Like most classic fairy-tales, this one was not exactly "happy." As Glenn said, "Yeah, because they're meant to teach you a lesson." Can you figure out the moral to this story?

King Barack and Robin Hood By Pat Gray

Once upon a time…in the far western portion of Sherwood Forest…known as America…there was a king named Barack.

King Barack told all the people of the land, that if they would just trust HIM…he would see to it that everyone in the kingdom was exactly the same. He would bring equality to the kingdom.

He gained the admiration of the peasants by telling them that those who lived in larger huts than they…would be punished. And those who lived in CASTLES…would finally be made to pay their fair share…and would be cut down to size. The peasants rejoiced and loved the king.

First, King Barack decreed that too many peasants had died during the Black Plague, because they didn’t have enough easy access to the village physicians…and their leech insurance. So, the king placed an extra tax on all those in larger huts and castles…to ensure that more of the leaches would become available to suck the blood out of all peasants, when they became ill, from now on.

He assured the people of the forest…as well as all those in neighboring hamlets and villages that if they LIKED their leeches…they could KEEP their leeches. Sadly, the kings’ promise had to be broken…although the village Crier simply informed the peasants and serfs that many of their leeches were inferior leeches, so, they actually WOULDN’T be allowed to keep them…and they’d be replaced with Kingdom approved, leeches.

Next, King Barack sent out Sheriff Biden of the IRS-ingham to collect further taxes from the evil wealthy elite. It seemed that the Forest TEEMED with people who were doing far too well…and the king was only taking slightly over 50% of everything they owned so far. It wasn’t NEARLY enough.

King Barack despised those people, those who worked hard and applied themselves…and who actually became, not just self-sufficient and reliant…but were able to lend a helping hand to others and contribute some of their earnings to build hospitals or libraries for those who could read, including peasants who would be taught to read at those libraries, in the nearby hamlets and villages.

The king HATED the fact that those people didn’t need to rely on HIM…for he believed that, being the KING…he was all-important, omnipotent, and that all aid and benefits should come thru HIM.

THEN, when those successful merchants would die, until now they had been allowed to pass on what they had to their children. Because the king had already taxes all of their earnings while they were living, all of that which was left to their children had been considered to be for their children to inherit. THIS, was unacceptable to King Barack.

Yes, King Barack also knew, that if he TOOK any of the estate inheritance…it would be of little or no benefit to the Kingdom as a whole, for it took resources from the people. But the king didn’t care. So, into the forest he sent the Sheriff Biden of the IRS-ingham and his thugs…to seize property and coin.

Knights and their squires came riding into the Forest, the hamlets and the villages, ransacking and looting every large hut and castle until their wasn’t a single coin to be had among the wealthy that King Barack despised. And now, with no coins or property…the wealthy were made peasants.

Tragically, there was no Robin Hood here, in the far western reaches of the Sherwood Forest, known as America…to stop the king and the sheriff…as there was on the other side of the Big Pond. That Robin Hood was able to stop the looting by King John and return the money to its rightful owners. Such was NOT the case in this region of the Forest.

Thus, the king and sheriff lived handsomely on the bounty they confiscated. They built larger and larger palaces for themselves…they partied every Monday and Wednesday with Sir Jay Z of The Hamptons…son of Adnes…and feasted on pheasant and wild boar, gosling, cream covered fruit, and dozens of saffron-covered boiled eggs each meal. Then, the king and sheriff hired more knights to protect them…and allowed those knights to bed down concubines and wenches to help them pass the time when they traveled to Columbia. The king built larger…and more cricket courses…and played over 200 times.

The kings parties never ceased…even as the peasants starved.

Meanwhile…with no more wealthy merchants to pay peasants, there were no longer any jobs. No one had any money at all any longer to pay the physicians for leeches when the plague came back.

Everyone in the kingdom died.

They were all equal now. Equally dead. The king had fulfilled his promise of equality to the peasants.

The end.

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."
