Stand Firm: Truth Speaks, Lies Whisper

It's a tough day in America. First and foremost, please pray for the people involved in the Virginia shooting, the police, their family members and all of our congressional members.

It's going to feel good to lash out with words today --- but I urge you not to. Instead, stand firm in the truth. And the truth is, we don't yet know the motivation behind what happened at a baseball field in Virginia.

Please, let's do our best not to speculate. This guy may have been completely nuts. This guy may be politically motivated. If so, he could be a liberal who believes Republicans are evil because of their beliefs or he could be a conservative who believes Republicans are evil because they're not doing what they promised. We just don't know.

So please, it's going to feel good to lash out. You literally will get hit with a rush of dopamine. When you read or post something that makes you go, "Yeah, stick it to him!" you literally will get a hit a chemical rush that plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior. It will feel good. But just because it feels good, doesn't mean we should do it.

Look, I am sick and tired of the hypocrisy just like you are. Here's what I want to say: screw you, Democrats. I mean, look what's in Vanity Fair today. It's a whole painting of Trump's hell, where they've made all of the people around Donald Trump --- you know, Paul Ryan and everybody --- look as though they are literal demons and Klan people and everything else.

What I want to say is, if we would have produced something like that about you and Gabby Giffords, you would have been scooping people up. You were on the air saying, "Gabby Giffords, this is Tea Party rhetoric." You did that for days, even after it was discovered the guy votes Democrat --- and he was insane. You still were doing it.

Turn around is fair play, isn't it? No, it's not. It's not.

We have to find a way to reduce the friction, to reduce the chaos, to reduce the hatred --- and it's going to go against everything that feels good.

We don't know anything about the Virginia shooter yet. Even after the reports come out, we may not know really anything true about him. But what is going to be said about us?

We've been talking about this for a while. I said years ago --- and I don't even know why I said it . . . I'm not smart enough to come up with this --- everything that you think is solid will be liquid and everything liquid will be solid. The world will be upside down and inside out. There was really no reason to start saying that in 2006, but now we see what has happened.

As convinced as I was on that, I am also convinced, equally so, that there now is no truth. There is no truth, and that is by design. Our colleges and universities are telling us all truth is subjective. That truth is a lie. It's a myth.

I want you to know, I am not going over the cliff with the rest of humanity. There is truth. It is easy to find.

Common sense does not exist anymore. It is now uncommon sense. But everybody still has access to common sense. They just have to listen to the small voice, to the still, small voice. Listen. Truth speaks; lies whisper all the time.

But you can find the truth. It is verifiable. It is easy. There is truth. My question to you is, what is the truth about us?

Are we people who are at civil war and are ready to condemn our neighbors and our friends --- who I am convinced, with an exception of probably 10 percent on the right and 10 percent on the left who want us to hate each other and need us to hate each other --- there is a good 70 to 80 percent of this country that doesn't want any of that. And I stand in the middle with them on that point.

I will live next to any man, no matter their faith, their creed, their color, as long as they respect my right to live my way, just like I respect their right. It doesn't matter to me.

I believe that is the majority of Americans. You can allow yourself to be derailed and believe that we're in the minority, but I will go to my grave not going over that cliff with the rest of humanity. I do not believe that is who we are. And I would rather go out believing that than buying into the darkness that we're at civil war --- that we've got to go to war, strap arms to us and hate the other side.

I'm not going there, and I invite you to join me --- because the truth is a much better place.

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."
