Glenn Beck: $132,000 in 3 days



Ramos/Compean fundraiser


From Pat Gray's Blog...

 

The families of these border agent/political prisoners are struggling. Homes are in jeopardy, lives torn apart. So, we’re raising money for Monica Ramos and Patty Compean.

We’re asking that instead of one check, split your donation between the two: Make them out separately to Monica Ramos…AND…Patty Compean…and mail to:

Edd Henndee


Taste of Texas


10505 Katy Freeway


Houston, Texas 77024

GLENN: So yesterday Ed went down, a friend of ours, partner of yours, more of a friend of mine and partner of yours. You know what I'm saying?

GRAY: I know what you're saying.

GLENN: But he went down and he met with Nacio Ramos in prison.

GRAY: Yeah. This is, I think, the third time that he's met with him in prison, and just had a great talk with him because we've been doing the fundraiser obviously and so have you, and so he luckily we had this scheduled anyway and so he was able to tell him about the first couple of days and

GLENN: How long does it take Ed to get that schedule? It took us six months.

GRAY: You know, he goes through a local congressman that he's very close to.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Our congressman, not a lot of help.

GRAY: Not so much.

GLENN: Not so much, no.

GRAY: Yeah, it surprises me. In Connecticut? Huh.

GLENN: But we went and it was impossible to get in to see him. In fact, the first interview with both Compean and Ramos, the first in prison interview is in Fusion magazine. I couldn't bring a microphone or a camera in. I mean, you know, for their protection.

GRAY: For their protection.

GLENN: That's what it was.

GRAY: They thought you were going to beat him to death?

GLENN: No, it was for their protection, yeah.

GRAY: Uh huh, yeah, yeah.

GLENN: So I went in and interviewed and if you sign up for Fusion magazine, you'll get the first interview, first in prison interview with both Compean and Ramos in Fusion magazine. 888 Glenn Beck or GlennBeck.com. So he spoke with him yesterday and what happened?

GRAY: Here just an amazing story from Nacio because Nacio was talking about how, you know, just as the new verdict from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals started to sink in and I think he said in the last week or so and he said he started to realize, you know, he's going to he's going to be in prison now for a while.

GLENN: I think he's going to be in prison, unless something dramatic happens. I think these guys are going to be in prison for the term.

GRAY: I hope not.

GLENN: I hope not, either. It's going to have to something dramatic's going to have to happen.

GRAY: It is, it is. And, you know, obviously they are going to go unbunk and plead the case to the entire fifth circuit court which is 22 judges and if that doesn't work out, they will still take it to the supreme courts but, you know, that's a process of at least a year, at least a year. So, you know, that was all sinking in.

GLENN: Maybe if it gets to Justice Kennedy and the Supreme Court because Justice Kennedy believes there's an evolving sense of morality. So if it looks like the American people are starting to say, oh, wait a minute, we think this might be wrong, maybe justice Kennedy would have that evolving sense of justice and say, well, we're headed towards a place where it looks like this isn't wrong.


GRAY: Yeah, that gives is all just a glimmer of hope.

GLENN: It does, doesn't it? It wounds my heart.

GRAY: So as he's starting to realize how long he's going to be there and that his family's going to be without him and he can't support them for an even longer period of time, he just broke down. And at that point just ask Dodd, you're going to have to take care of my family because I just can't do it. Here, there's absolutely nothing I can do; please just see to my family. The next day he's listening to your show as he does every day and you've got his wife on and Patty Compean and me and we're talking about the fundraiser, and he had no idea it was coming. And he stopped right there dead in his tracks in the cell and just realized at that point and spoke it aloud: God, you've been here with me, you're here with me now and you've been here with me all along. And I get it now. I get it now. And so I realized at that point that, yeah, God is helping take care of his family.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

GRAY: Incredible, fantastic. You know, to get a small part in being a conduit and watching people just take off with this thing. In a time when we're told, you know, how bad the economy is. And yeah, it is. Everybody's struggling now to meet their bills and to just buy a tank of gas and you've got the mortgage crunch and you've got the uncertainty of the future and people stepping up like that? We've got $23,000 for these families in one day. This was before your listeners' donations started to get here. That's $46,000 on the first day. By day two it was $36,000 a piece for a total of $72,000. And then the listeners from all over the country from hearing your show

GLENN: This one time, we asked one time.

GRAY: One time. One time, and it kicked up the donations. The first day we got donations from around the country, went up to $66,000 per family. So in three days over $132,000 for the Ramos and Compean family.

GLENN: And that is again I just want to say some of that money is locally from Pat. That is this audience. One day, one mention. One mention. And it's nontax deductible. I mean, that is it's absolutely incredible.

GRAY: Nothing in it for anybody.

GLENN: Anybody. Nothing in it for anybody.

GRAY: Except the eternal principle we talked about when we were on my show today, that when you look outside yourself, you know, blessings will come to you as well. Your life is going to be happier, it's going to be better. And the amazing thing is, you know, our listeners get that. They understand that.

GLENN: You know, I said to you on your show, because you brought me on this morning and you told me this news and it came as just a, just it was a blessing to me to hear. And I shared a story that a very good friend of mine who has been just, he has had a horrible, horrible, tough life. We used to have to, when I was 15, 16, 17 years old, we would go down to the bar and we would have to go down and get his stepfather and pull him out of the bar drunk. And we you know, and he would just be, you know, typical drunk and we, as kids, would pull them out and take him home and put him into bed. And his father he saw kill himself and he just, had just his life has just been one tragedy right after another. And he's been an atheist or on good days an agnostic. And he came out to visit me and we spent a week together and we were sitting here in a hotel having dinner right after the new year and he said, I'm just miserable, Glenn and I'm having a hard time with money and I can't, I can't do it anymore. And I said, you know, I know you don't believe in God but just try two principles. The first one is you're worried about money? Give it away. Give it away. Just know that by giving it away, more will come back to you. Worry about somebody else and give that money away, just 10%. You're going to struggle with that 10%. Just give it away and more will come back.

Then the other one is serve other people. Stop worrying about yourself. Just serve other people and everything will be okay. He called me last week. He said, Glenn, I can't believe it. Not only am I happy, not only am I by serving other people am I finding such peace and comfort, he said, but I've been giving money away. He said, an aunt of mine who just died I didn't even know I had left me a huge sum of money and on the same day, the day that the day before I was saying, I don't have any money, what am I going to do because I've, you know, been living these principles, he said, and I also got another check that I wasn't even expecting. And they were large sums of money. He said, I couldn't believe it. And he said, I've got to go start going to church. What are the rest of those principles? I called him yesterday. He went to church for the very first time in I think his life. He went to church on Sunday. Called him yesterday. Here's a lifelong friend who's been miserable his whole life and he said to me I said, how was it? How are things? He said, Glenn, I went to church on Sunday. He said, you know me. I'm not a God guy. He said, but I just just going to church that Sunday, just listening to some of that stuff and just trying to apply some of these principles, he said, these are the two happiest days of my life. Boy, if we just get outside of ourself, miracles happen.

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.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
