Glenn interviews Stossel




Glenn is appearing on Stossel tonight on Fox Business at 9p ET & 12a ET...

GLENN: John Stossel is from ABC remember he did something on me with 20/20 and we didn't trust anybody from ABC, nor should we. John did this whole thing with us and their cameras were rolling for a week and they finished this thing and after they finished it and put it in the camera and it was on the air, I called up John and I said, You really should be working over at FOX. You really should be working at FOX, because he was a fish out of water. I don't know how this guy lasted in the mainstream media as long as he did. I think he started out as a liberal and then, just because he questions with boldness and he doesn't care what the answer is very libertarian. You don't care what the answer is. You just want the right answer he became a libertarian and he's pretty hard core libertarian. Tonight on the John Stossel show on FOX the FOX Business Network, he is doing a show. I mean, he's done a full hour on the Road to Serfdom. If you're looking for smart, intellectual libertarian food, Stossel gives it to you every week and he's done some really brilliant shows. He's lowering his standards by having me on tonight and we're talking a little bit about -- is there anything that the government does better than the private sector-- I think the answer to that is no. John Stossel is on with us now. Hello, John.

STOSSEL: Hi, Glenn. You're the food. We're going to chew on you tonight.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. And I think you will, too. Because I'm only in the one segment. Can you give us a little preview? Did you find anything that the government does better?

STOSSEL: No. I'll give a thousand dollars to anybody who shows me something government does more efficiently than the private sector. I still haven't found it.

GLENN: That's the caveat, more efficiently.

STOSSEL: Yeah. Some things maybe we want government to do and some people say, Pay me a thousand dollars. The government can waste money more efficiently; but if that were the goal of the private sector, I'm sure the private sector could waste more money.

GLENN: If somehow or the other you could make money by wasting money, you're saying the private sector could come up with better ways.

STOSSEL: That's right.

GLENN: Yes.

STOSSEL: Incentives are better. It's just the incentives are to keep improving to get to your goal. Government is to just cover your rear.

GLENN: Here's the thing, John. We are now in a place where the government is distancing itself from itself. The White House just said they need to put more people in between the President and these decisions so the people will blame those people and not the President excuse me with the FCC they are starting to now put together, you know, these local committees. That way you'll be able to complain at the local level and it will disconnect from the national FCC, but it's a game here. It's a total game. How is it that we are coming to this place now, John?

STOSSEL: I think it's intuitive that another committee, got another problem, another political group

GLENN: But it's not. Have you ever sat in a meeting in any company, at any time, and went, you know, these meetings are so good?

STOSSEL: No, no, but when people get upset, oh, the community standards in Mississippi are different from New York City, we need our own FCC group, I can see why people who haven't really thought about it think it's a good idea.

GLENN: So, Give us a preview of tonight.

STOSSEL: Tonight we try to twist your brain by looking at what people sell. That's a job for the private sector, road building and stoplights and show how when you get rid of stoplights, when private companies build roads, it works were.

GLENN: What do you mean, get rid of stoplights? Are you calling for no stoplights?

STOSSEL: This was one section. That's what they all say to us libertarians, You're crazy. You want to get rid of stoplights and stop signs? But, in fact, there is a spontaneous order that emerges and in Europe they're getting rid of lots of stoplights at intersections and they find there are fewer accidents and traffic moves a little faster because people take care of themselves instead of government saying come to a full stop, people look around and work it out.

GLENN: I will tell you this, that I was sitting at a four way stop the other day and I'm always amazed at how the order just happens. You just know. You're next, then you're next, then you're next. It just happens

STOSSEL: And it should be a four way yield so you don't have to come to a complete stop.

GLENN: Well, you libertarians are crazy.

STOSSEL: And proud of it.

GLENN: What is the closest you came to saying, well, maybe the government should do this?

STOSSEL: Well, I always assumed that fighting wars was a job for government, you didn't want to trust that to a profit seeking enterprise, but, you know, you sort of moved my head about that a bit in that if you have a bunch of private contractors like Black Water doing the work and they do it so much more efficiently and the CEO says that it takes three government workers to replace one Halliburton worker, then maybe they would fight wars better and if we didn't like what they were doing, we could fire them.

GLENN: Right.

STOSSEL: You can't fire the government, but contractors compete.

GLENN: It would be great to be able to say that these guys are private contractors and the war is dragging on, the war is dragging on, and being able to have the President say, we're getting a new contractor, because they'll finish the job. They'll finish the job. And you can also hold them responsible for everything. The problem with government is you can never actually hold these people responsible for anything

STOSSEL: And people would say, oh, are you kidding me? A private for profit company fighting a war? They'll just kill all kinds of civilians, but don't think ahead to the fact that this company wants to be hired again but some other

GLENN: That's exactly right. It's like planes. The really horribly irresponsible companies say, do you know what? We're going to chintz on the repair on this airplane and we've got an airliner, because once one goes down and you've been caught chintzing on it, sure, you lose 200 people, which is a horrible, horrible tragedy, but the company knows you lose 200 people, it's over.

STOSSEL: Exactly.

GLENN: We're all out of business and if we're really doing something wrong, we're all going to jail.

STOSSEL: Or food safety. People think the food doesn't poison us because there are agriculture department inspectors out there, but the truth is, because Purdue or Oscar Mayer know their reputation depends on not poisoning people, they're much more careful than the government inspectors.

GLENN: For instance, Tylenol, the safety cap and everything else, did that come from government or did that come from a private suspect saying, We have to have the safety seal, we have to have the wrap, we have to have the seal on the top of the bottle? Was that a government idea or was that Tylenol realizing we're out of business if we don't solve this?

STOSSEL: They did it on their own. I actually think they overdid it because you can still poison people other ways and they spent all that money----

GLENN: Save that one for another show, ways to poison people besides using what is that? (Laughter.)

All right. Tonight on John Stossel and every Thursday night at 9:00, again at midnight, Fridays at 10:00, Saturdays at 9:00, Sundays at 9:00. I mean, is there another show on this network? Is it just you and the judge now? Geez.

STOSSEL: A little libertarian opening and I like it that FOX Business repeats it.

GLENN: I have to tell you something, I think between you and the judge and you also have Money Rocks now, with

STOSSEL: Eric Bolling.

GLENN: Eric Bolling who is also do you think he's a libertarian?

STOSSEL: I don't know. I haven't paid enough attention.

GLENN: You don't go to the company parties, do you? You don't mingle? You don't play well with others, do you, John?

STOSSEL: Well, he walks around with a baseball bat.

GLENN: (Laughter.) Oh, who doesn't? Okay. John Stossel tonight at 9:00 on the FOX Business network. I'm appearing on it tonight. So, brace yourself. Thanks a lot, John.

STOSSEL: Thank you, Glenn.

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?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

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.
