Chinese President May Rule for Life, Ban Winnie the Pooh, and the Letter ‘N’ in Latest Power Grab

What’s happening?

Chinese President Xi Jinping has proposed changing China’s constitution to end the two-term presidential limit. If the constitution changes, he could remain president for the rest of his life.

China instated the term limit to protect the country from revolutionaries like Chairman Mao Zedong, who ruled from 1949 until he died in 1976.

Yikes …

In more bad news for the Chinese people, the government recently went on a censorship spree that’s believed to be part of Xi’s tightening grip on power.

The internet and social media were analyzed for content seen as subversive. Winnie the Pooh was scrubbed along with search terms “my emperor” and “lifelong.” The beloved cartoon bear has been used as a meme by Xi’s dissenters.

Even the English letter “n” was temporarily censored so people couldn’t express this rebellious sentiment: “N > 2” (“n” standing for the number of Xi’s terms in office).

Orwell warned us.

The Beijing National People’s Conference has reportedly also proposed censoring the Orwell classics “1984” and “Animal Farm,” both of which warn people about the dangers of unlimited government power.

Glenn’s take:

“This isn’t new to the Chinese people. President Xi has been periodically censoring specific things for years,” Glenn said. “He controls almost every aspect of Chinese citizens’ lives, but it’s about to get much worse.”

GLENN: There is nothing better than lifetime appointments to power. Okay? Just keep track. We want to start a list. George Orwell's Animal Farm. Winnie the Pooh. And the letter N.

What do they all have in common? Well, they're just the beginnings of things that have been banned in China this week.

Why? Because they -- you don't know. They promote the criticism of Chinese President Xi Jinping, right?

STU: Oh.

GLENN: The letter N, hello.

STU: It does?

GLENN: He is -- believe it or not, it does.

He has announced that he's extending his presidency into a lifetime appointment. He's the first to do so since Mao. And, you know, he's worried that reading Animal Farm will make citizens question communism.

And, you know what? When the Chinese get a lifetime ruler, it always works out well.

Winnie the Pooh apparently is a problem, because there is a specific image of the mayor clutching honey, you know, next to the quote, find the thing that you love, and stick with it.

Must have some other meaning in China. Apparently, he is spouting cynical commentary about President Xi's indefinite position.

Now, the letter N apparently -- not sure on this. But apparently is used as a code letter, if you're printing something that is against the government.

So you can't use the letter N anymore.

That caused some real problems, you know, online -- for instance, this would be the Gle Beck Show. And, you know, on the internet, the use of all the letters of the alphabet is probably needed. So they unbanned that pretty quickly. Now, this isn't new to the Chinese people.

President Xi has been periodically censoring specific things for years. He controls the media. He controls the government and almost every aspect of Chinese citizen's lives. But it's about to get much worse. Because he's now a life-long dictator.

And as I said before, that usually doesn't work out all so well for the people.

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."
