'That Has Haunted Me' - Glenn Reveals His Biggest Personal Regret Following 9/11

Glenn shared a deeply personal regret on radio Thursday, something he's never even told his wife.

"The most personally embarrassing thing I have done since my baptism, when I promised I wouldn't be the man I used to be, came after 9/11," Glenn said.

On 9/13, just days after the devastation of 9/11, Glenn attended a meeting.

"I had a contract to do a national show, but Clear Channel, they couldn't get a hold of the guys in New York. The company was running almost locally, and the people in New York had no time to make any decisions whatsoever," Glenn recalled.

They decided to put Glenn on the air with another host who took a different approach to 9/11.

"I was speaking to the heart; he was speaking to the head. It might have been a good show, but it was not the show that I would have done. And it was very, very frustrating because it's not what I believe the country needed. I think the country needed a hug," Glenn said.

The program director wanted to repeat the show format for the next several weeks while Glenn wanted to go solo.

"I believed in that direction so strongly, and they kept going back and forth. And everybody was calm, except me. I think it was the first time Jeffy ever heard me swear," Glenn said.

He continued.

"I said, 'I don't care what the F you put on the air, but it's not going to be me. And I don't care what it is, but I am not participating in this anymore. And get somebody on the phone that understands what the hell they're doing.' And I remember the program director looked at me in horror and said, 'Do you realize why we can't get them on the phone? Do you know what it's like on the streets of New York?'" Glenn said.

After saying a few more foul things, Glenn walked out of the room.

"That has haunted me. And the reason why it happened --- and I went back and apologized to everybody --- but the reason why it happened is because all of us were at the ultimate level of stress. The pinnacle of stress," Glenn said.

The last couple of years, Glenn has experienced that same kind stress.

"I told my wife six months ago, 'Honey, I'm going to quit. I can't do it anymore. I can't take the stress anymore. My body can't take the stress anymore.' I'm at the pinnacle of my stress. Has anybody noticed that my language has gotten much worse in the last year and a half? I'm swearing now. Not all the time, but I don't usually swear," Glenn said.

Because of that stress, he's been transported back to that day on 9/13 several times --- and it's changed his behavior and course of action.

"It takes a lot of pressure on me before my walls start to get shaky. That's not good enough. At least for me. That's not good enough. I want to be the man who can be in the battlefield and rock solid. Rock solid. I am not that guy. And you know that from listening to me. Because you've heard me snap on the air. I don't like it," Glenn said.

On those days, Glenn thinks of 9/13 and the progress he still wants to make --- especially considering the contentious election we're having.

"In times of ultimate stress, the best thing we can do for each other is understand," Glenn said. "Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. We need to be the strongest, most principled people we can possibly be and hold things together as they are flying apart."

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."
