Government money going towards ex-cons and not veterans?

This morning on radio, Mike Broomhead started off the program discussing Memorial Day and our veterans. There is currently new legislation being passed that will allow ex-convicts the ability to go to college and further their education. It would essentially allow people the opportunity to turn their life around and gain a free education. But at what cost? Well, apparently it's at the cost of some of our veterans.

But what about our veterans who have fought so hard for our freedom? Well, 40 veterans will no longer get the opportunity to attend Yavipai College's aviation program since the Veterans Affairs Regional Office has pulled the plug on the program for veterans.

The Daily Courior published a story discussing this situation and the 40 veterans who are now in a state ready to attend classes they cannot take.

Listen to Mike Broomhead discuss some of this below:

Rough Transcript Below:

Mike Broomhead: I have a stack in front of me of papers of stories I've been looking at all week long. There are six members of the House of Representatives that are trying to start something called the REAL Act. It's about -- it's restoring education and learning. And in this act, the six members -- and I'll read their names to you. Remember these names.

Diane (sic) Edwards from Maryland. Danny Davis from Illinois. Barbara Lee of California. Bobby Scott of Virginia. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut. And Cedric Richmond of Louisiana. They've introduced legislation in this that would reinstate Pell grants, free college for inmates.

So we have members of the United States Congress fighting to get inmates free college. These are people that have committed crimes. These are felons. These aren't people in jail for misdemeanors. These are convicted felons. And they want to give them free college as a way of stopping the recidivism and stopping people from committing crimes again. They believe it will benefit our society.

So we'll do it. I want you to hear what they're pushing for. The people that you and I elect to the United States Congress, especially the House of Representatives. You know, Congress broke into two parts. The House of Representatives is called the people's house. These are the people that we send to Washington, DC, to represent our wishes in the United States government.

How many of you believe this represents your wishes? They are taking away education benefits from veterans. There is an aviation technology program at Yavapai College in Northern Arizona in which 40 veterans, some of them coming as far away as Nebraska, and I'll give you some detail in a moment.

A veteran from Nebraska separates from active duty in the United States Air Force is then working as a contractor making $75,000 a year, as a contractor, for the United States Air Force. Has an opportunity to go to college. Sells his home below market value. Moves from -- to Arizona so that he could attend college with VA benefits. And a month before classes start is sent a letter saying, sorry, the program doesn't exist anymore. When he contacts the VA, his words, he was spoken down to. Treated rudely.

So I want to know if these people represent you. I'm thinking -- I realize this is an emotional time for me. I realize that the backstory for me is tied up in emotion. I've spent the last week corresponding with old friends and with my family and with the men that my brother served with on the night he was killed. Them wishing my family well, praying for us. And I've spent all this time wondering what those men are doing.

Yesterday, what did the members of Eagle Troop, second squadron, third ACR, do yesterday? Those men that were there in Fallujah, Iraq, the night my brother and another guy from Tampa named Mike Quinn were killed, and nine other soldiers were wound in that platoon. How did they spend yesterday, the anniversary of that occurrence? How has their life changed in the last 12 years? Have we as a country been doing for them what's necessary for them to move on with their lives? Have we kept our promises to them and the men and women like them, or are we sending people to Washington, DC, that believe the wishes of the American people is to reinstall free college -- reinstate free college and Pell grants to convicted felons?

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.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
