2nd Amendment: Good Enough for Kim Kardashian, But Not You

The day after the latest Orlando shooting, the gun control folks came out of the woodwork --- as expected. In an unexpected twist, Kim Kardashian is now gun expert leading the charge. The reality star, whose security team is armed to the hilt, recently penned a letter calling for stricter gun control.

"Here is a woman that is surrounded by 24-hour-a-day armed protection. Why? Because she's a target. She is a target as a celebrity. So what do you do to protect yourself? You put armed people around you. You know what, I don't have the luxury of surrounding myself by armed people," Mike Broomhead said filling in for Glenn on radio Wednesday.

It's an entirely hypocritical premise.

"Get rid of your armed guards then if you don't think people should have guns. She thinks it's ridiculous that she would go out unprotected. It really is absolutely a joke.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

MIKE: Before we close out the hour though, Kim Kardashian -- yesterday, day before yesterday, we talked about the Orlando shooting. Then the day after the Orlando shooting, when it came out that it wasn't a terrorist attack, that it was a disgruntled employee, a former member of the military, had been arrested on some misdemeanor charges, and had had a fistfight with a coworker, was fired from his job. Returned to his old place of business. Shot five people. Dead. Then turned the gun on himself.

And, of course, what happened? The gun control people came out of the woodwork like they always do. Well, here you go. Kim Kardashian. Despite admitting that her entire security team is armed, reality television personality Kim Kardashian called for stricter gun control.

So here's the comment that I loved yesterday. I told you there is nothing more insulting than saying that people that are defenders of the Second Amendment care more about guns than they do people, leave it to Kim Kardashian. It's more important to protect the Second Amendment than to protect our own children.

No. The Second Amendment protects them too.

Kardashian went on to explain that better gun control looks like this to her: I believe that we should restrict access to firearms for people with mental illness.

Always happens already.

Anyone previously convicted of a misdemeanor.

So if you're convicted of trespassing, they should take your gun away? I'm asking.

If you get convicted of a misdemeanor, the government should be able to take your firearm? Those who have been subject to a temporary restraining order and those at a higher risk of committing gun violence.

There are already laws that do that. We have laws against felons possessing guns. How many times have murders been carried out by a felon with a handgun or a rifle? How many?

Well, shocking that the very same people that don't care about the laws against murder, don't care about the laws against carrying a gun either. It's a ludicrous premise. But the fact that Kim Kardashian pens the letter and anyone pays attention to it shows you that this is about popularity, not about policy, and not about what makes common sense.

Anybody like myself that says I am an adamant defender of the Second Amendment, you are labeled some kind of an extremist. Well, there's your extremist. Here is a woman that is surrounded by 24-hour a day armed protection. Why? Because she's a target. She is a target, as a celebrity.

So what do you do to protect yourself? You put armed people around you. You know what, I don't have the luxury of surrounding myself by armed people. It's -- it's such a hypocritical premise, that someone wouldn't say to her, get rid of your armed guards then. If you don't people should have guns, she thinks it's ridiculous that she would go out unprotected. It's absolutely -- it really is absolutely a joke.

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.
