Glenn Beck: Obama's stolen prayer

GLENN: I read an editorial about Obama's pilfered prayer note. Did you see the prayer note that he wrote and stuck in the wall?

STU: I did hear about it but I didn't --

GLENN: Do you not know about it?

STU: I do not know about it.

GLENN: Okay. You're not supposed to take those out of the wall, all right? It's very taboo. You don't take those out of the wall and then read them. Well, somebody took his out of the wall and then gave it to the press, okay? Yeah. This is what he wrote. Stationery from the King David Hotel. "Lord, protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins. Help me guard against pride and despair. Give me wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will." That's pretty good, huh? No, seriously.

STU: It is very good.

GLENN: It's a very good, it's a very good prayer.

STU: But it's taboo to even take them out of the wall.

GLENN: And print them in the paper, it's got to be even worse than taboo.

STU: I mean, it seems kind of disrespectful.

GLENN: Uh-huh. So this guy, Halil Hulkin (ph), says that he was over one time with his kid over in Jerusalem and they went to the tomb of Rachel in Bethlehem which is very, very sacred, you know, to Jewish, members of the Jewish faith. And basically if you are a woman, it doesn't get any better than Rachel. And so he brought his daughter to Rachel and to her tomb and there stuck all in the walls were prayers just like at the wailing wall or the Western Wall now. And so he was talking to his daughter and she -- and he said, you know, look, those are all prayers. And his daughter said, what do people pray for? And he said, all kinds of things. She said, what kind? He said, all kinds. The only way we would know is to read what they've written. And they looked at each other and the daughter said, "Well, we can't do that." And he said, "If we take their prayers, how will God answer them?" And he said, "God is a fast reader. He knows what the prayer is. He doesn't need to read these." And so he looked at them for a while and he was curious and he said in his editorial, he's very ashamed of doing this. It was 30 years ago. He was very ashamed of doing this. But what he did is he was there alone with the prayers tucked in and so he took them. He just grabbed a handful of them and stuffed them in his pocket and was like, let's find out what people pray for, okay? Very unethical. Really not cool to do. But as he was driving home, they were talking about what are these prayers going to say. What do people pray for. What do you think people prayed for?

Here's what he wrote down. Dear God, may my daughter-in-law get pregnant. Lord, help me lose 40 pounds. Master of the universe, cure my husband of his illness. May the holy one blessed make my sister pass her driver's test. He said, we got a few into it and my daughter said, Dad, can you read Little House on the Prairie to me? She was so bored because there was nothing there. They were not -- they were not beautiful, they were not eloquent. They were, Lord, can you help me with this test, can you help me with this problem, can you help me lose weight, can you help me do this. There's nothing there. They are not eloquent. They are regular people asking for regular things on regular topics. Now, when I first saw this written on, you know, King David Hotel stationery and the way it was written was so poetic, I thought, hmmm, does that seem like something that you wrote knowing that somebody might take it out and it might get out? Or is this an honest prayer? I don't know and I don't want to judge the man. I don't know the man. Only God knows the man's heart. But what a beautiful prayer he penned there at the King David Hotel and then put in the Western Wall for a few minutes before somebody took it out and published it.

This writer says, "If I could pray to God, I'd concentrate on the things I most wanted. Anything else would seem to me hypocritical. Indeed what does it mean for a candidate for the presidency of America to ask to be an instrument of God's will, that he hopes God is a Democrat, that he believes God is a discernible position on offshore drilling or is it simply a way for wishing that God would make himself an instrument of Mr. Obama's will just as the women in Bethlehem who wanted him to help her succeed on her diet. Help me guard against pride, wrote Mr. Obama in his prayer. Is there anywhere pride is more dangerous than a -- than when concealed in the aspiration of being an instrument of God. Had Mr. Obama written instead, "Oh, Lord, I'm just a poor foolish human being; I'd sure love to be President and I'd appreciate any assistance you can give me," I'd actually feel closer to him. Poor foolish human beings is what all of us really are.

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.
