Week of Violence: What Do We Tell Our Kids?

It was a day of reflection and uncertainty for many following a week of violence in the United States. For parents, the events presented a particular challenge: How to explain the hatred and violence to our children.

"So last night, I am watching television with my son, and it's a split screen of New York and Dallas. And we see New York, and we're paying attention to New York and watching what's happening, and expecting something to happen in New York, and all of a sudden the camera starts running down the street and people start to scatter. And you realize something has happened," Glenn said.

He went on to explain how his son reacted to seeing police officers down and coming to the realization it was happening near his hometown in Dallas.

"I felt him kind of just lean back towards me, and I grabbed him and I hugged him. I didn't know what to say. And I said, 'You're going to be safe. Everything's going to be fine. But, son, this is what we've been talking about. Your life is going to be different than mine. This is why we have to be good, decent people, and rely on God.'"

That was Glenn's experience with his son. When his executive assistant Michelle said the next day, "My world is upside down," Glenn gained a different perspective.

"She had the same experience with her boys. And she said, 'What do I say to them?' and I realized, 'Oh, my gosh. I've only thought of it from my point of view.' Michelle is black. I didn't even consider that her sons are watching these marchers saying, 'black lives matter,' and that has to be conflicting there," Glenn said.

A discussion ensued between Glenn, Michelle and head of content Ellen Wheeler, all of whom are parents facing the same dilemma.

"If you don't root yourself in something that is eternal, if you don't grab onto something that, you know, doesn't have its foundation in sand, you don't make it. You don't make it. Because this is just the beginning of this," Glenn said.

The platitudes delivered to those born in the 50s and 60s no longer work because the future will be a vastly different experience.

"I can't give you the same guarantees that our parents gave us --- go to college, you know, get a job, do these things, and life will turn out okay," Ellen said.

Michelle agreed.

"You can't hide it. You can't hide it from them. You can't pretend that the world is so great, and you have to be honest," she said.

"I'm convinced of that. You have to tell them the truth because we're not solving this. They are. They were born for this time, for this purpose," Glenn added.

Principles will be the key to surviving the coming storm.

"The only thing you have is an iron rod of principles to hold onto. Grab hold of the iron rod. Because we are all going to need it, and we're all going to need each other," Glenn said.

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.
