Donald Trump thinks eminent domain is 'wonderful'

In an interview with Bret Baire from Fox News this week, Donald Trump made some telling remarks about eminent domain, or the right of a government to expropriate private property for public use, with compensation. Glenn shared a portion of the audio with his radio audience Thursday.

"I think eminent domain is wonderful," Trump said. "Nobody knows this better than I do because I've built a lot of buildings in Manhattan."

Glenn concluded the segment with a question to Trump supporters.

"When will the Trump people - only 13 percent of his support comes from the Tea Party. But when will that 13 percent wake up and go, 'Wait a minute, wait a minute, no, this is not constitutional'?" Glenn said.

GLENN: Donald Trump was on with Bret Baier on Fox News. And I just want you to hear what he said. Listen.

BRET: What do you think of eminent domain?

DONALD: Well, I think eminent domain is wonderful. If you're building a highway and you need to build as an example a highway and you're going to be blocked by a holdout or -- in some cases, it's a holdout. Just so you understand. Nobody knows this better than I do because I've built a lot of buildings in Manhattan.

GLENN: That's not a highway.

DONALD: And you'll have 12 sites, and you'll get 11. And you'll have the one holdout. And you end up building around them and everything else.

PAT: How dare they not agree to sell Donald Trump their property that they bought and paid for and now own, how dare they hold out!

GLENN: Yeah. Did you guys ever see that documentary on him when he tried to build the golf course in Scotland?

PAT: No.

STU: I saw the preview for it. Is it good?

GLENN: Oh, you have to watch it. These people. They're these sweet Scottish people. They live down by the sea. And they've lived there forever. They're poor. They just have simple lives. Simple homes. And Donald Trump comes in and he's like, "Look, these people are living in trash. They're living like trash." No, they're not. Quite honestly, they're living like my grandparents used to. They're living like most Americans used to.

PAT: Even if they were living in trash, it's none of his business. It's theirs.

GLENN: Right. And he's like, it's an eyesore, and we'll make this into beautiful, wonderful hotels and everything else. He loses in the end. But the way he treats them and the way that they are. Just these simple, good people. Who are like, no, I've lived here my whole life. I don't want to move. When he makes this argument -- it's really, it's really sick. I'll play the rest of it and then share with you what I shared online. And some of the responses. It's really quite staggering. Really quite staggering. On, when will the Trump people -- only 13 percent of his support comes from the Tea Party. But when will that 13 percent wake up and go, "Wait a minute. Wait a minute. No, this is not constitutional."

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.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
