After ISIS scare at a Utah high school, where are all the bomb control activists?

While the Broward County high schoolers continue their national media tour, we STILL haven’t even begun to discuss school security.

Sure, there have been a few mentions of arming teachers, but outside of that, has there been any serious debate on how to harden public schools? I seriously hope so, because while every media outlet and their mother has given air time to David Hogg and his band of underage national policy “experts,” there are some very bad people planning some very bad things.

On Monday, ISIS tried to attack Pine View High School --- IN ST. GEORGE UTAH!

This is a community with less than 100,000 people, famous for its proximity to Zion National Park and the location of Brigham Young’s winter home... Not exactly a hotbed for Islamic extremism.

The teenager arrived at school on Monday with a bomb he made at his home. After trying to detonate it inside the school, a malfunction caused the device to emit large amounts of smoke. The school was evacuated and --- thankfully --- no one was hurt.

Police searched the attacker's house and found the materials used to construct the bomb. They also found evidence that he had been researching and promoting ISIS.

As it turns out, none of this should have been a surprise.

The student had already been involved in two separate incidents where he made it clear he was an ISIS supporter. On one occasion, he took down the school’s American flag and replaced it with an ISIS flag. On another, he spray-painted “ISIS is coming” on the side of a building. Despite all that, officers said he was authorized to be on school grounds.

I kind of doubt you see Hogg talk about this today, and you probably won’t hear anyone else talk about it in the right context. But imagine if this attacker had attempted this with an AR-15. What if he pulled out the rifle, but it jammed?

Even if no one got hurt, that might have been the final straw that pushed this gun control debate over the edge. Media coverage would be blowing up, not over the circumstances surrounding the attack, but over the weapon used. That’s all you’d see today on every cable news station. It would be in every national paper.

If this attack involved a jammed gun versus a malfunctioning bomb --- this close to the Parkland shooting --- the Second Amendment would be hanging by a thread today.

Meanwhile, we refuse to talk about the ACTUAL problems.

Why did this student still have access to a school? Is supporting the most violent terror group in the world not cause for a mental evaluation? Was there no law enforcement investigation on this kid?

When will we get serious about finding out how to protect our schools from ALL threats?

Schools are incredibly soft targets and it’s now apparent that terrorists are taking notice. When ISIS attacked New York City five months ago by driving a truck down a bike path, the media talked about it --- for what, maybe a few days? Now, look what happens when an attack hits a school. It dominates the news for weeks and even starts debates on national policy.

You'd better believe very bad people are watching this. They’re taking notes. It’s time we stopped talking nonsense and got serious about what the ACTUAL problems are.

We got lucky on Monday, but our luck is quickly running out.

In the era of 'Fake News' and the 24 hour news cycle, knowing what stories are most important can be difficult. This story is one of the three things Glenn selected to share with you today that you won't hear anywhere else.

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."
