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."

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
