Matthew McConaughey: The Voice of Reason and Decency in Hollywood?

In the middle of a recent interview for his new movie Gold, actor Matthew McConaughey did something nearly unheard of from Hollywood: He spoke common sense about Trump.

He's our president. And it's very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time that we've ever had. At the same time, it's time for us to embrace, shake hands with this fact, and be constructive with him over the next four years.

Alright, alright, alright. Finally, someone speaking common sense from Hollywood.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Let's go to the Matthew McConaughey audio. Do you still have that, Pat?

The Matthew McConaughey audio.

PAT: Get it in a minute.

GLENN: He was -- he was in the middle of an interview for a new movie that he's in. And if you don't have it, that's all right. We'll pick it up in a minute.

He was -- he started in on the situation we're in right now.

Did you guys take that as a slap in Hollywood's face, a slap on the back of Donald Trump, or did you just take that as, "Hey, I -- I think that maybe we should all as I remember down?"

Do you have it, Pat?

PAT: Yeah, I have it.

GLENN: Yeah, go ahead. Play it.

VOICE: Every single American actor or art-y type who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him.

Do you think it's time that maybe Hollywood and the culture elite of America gave this guy a break?

MATTHEW: Well, they don't have a choice now. He's our president. And it's very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time that we've ever had. At the same time, it's time for us to embrace, shake hands with this fact, and be constructive with him over the next four years.

So anyone -- even those who may strongly disagree with his principles or things he's said and done, which is another thing, we'll see what he does compared to what he had said -- no matter how much you even disagreed along the way, it's time to think about how constructive can you be, because he's our president for the next four years, at least, president of the United States.

GLENN: Isn't that just common sense?

PAT: Yeah, I think so.

GLENN: You can even look at it and say, "Look, the guy wants a 1.1 -- or at least a 1 trillion-dollar stimulus package."

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Why would you be spitting on him when you know he punches back twice as hard, when you could get a lot of stuff done -- I'm not condoning this. This is not what I want. I don't want a $1.1 trillion stimulus package. But he does.

Why wouldn't you be embracing him, instead of marching in the streets? $1 trillion can make a lot of things happen.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Why wouldn't you on the left be going, "You know what, let's see where he's going?"

PAT: We could work with that.

GLENN: We could work with this.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Right. Think of this, this is a Republican president who proposed a 680 billion-dollar maternity leave and childhood program, okay?

And day one of his presidency, there is a Women's March against him for being, oh, so conservative.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

STU: Why wouldn't you instead -- and believe me, I'm glad they're not doing this because it might very well work. But if you were a liberal and wanted to actually get things done and get these big programs locked in for all eternity -- because when they come from Republicans, they will never go away -- you would be able to lock these things in forever, if you went to him and said, "You know what, we don't really like this immigration ban. But I don't even want to talk about that. Let's talk about your maternity leave program."

Because if you want to know the approach that's worked with Trump, as far as moving him to the left, it's not yelling at him and screaming at him. It's Ivanka and Jared Kushner's approach

GLENN: Nope.

Yes.

STU: They're both Democrats. I mean, she leans very left on social issues. And what have you seen? That proposal from point example one. Number two, all the executive orders that have come in and Trump has reversed. He didn't reverse the LGBTQIA ban --

GLENN: No.

STU: -- with executive order.

GLENN: He kept Obamacare.

STU: He codified it. So far, he has. But, I mean, we don't know what's going to happen with that when he's still --

GLENN: Well, he said yesterday that it would be at least a year before he'd get to that. The longer it drags out, the less that's coming out.

STU: But there's an approach that works with Trump, and it's working with him, as McConaughey is talking about.

There's actually ground to gain there for them. I hope they continue to protest them in the streets because I think it hardens Trump against those positions. So it's very good for us. So in a way, I really kind of hope they continue that.

GLENN: But it's really bad -- can I pick it up there? Because it's not very good for us. When I come back.

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."
