Glenn has really mellowed over the years, here is a classic Get Off My Phone (GOMP) moment from 2003...

GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. Let's go to Rich in Atlanta. Hello, Rich.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn, I'm calling about two things. One, I think what you're doing for the border patrol agents who are in jail, I think that's great. I followed the story both on your program and on Lou Dobbs' program and I think it's terrible that that's happened to these families. One thing I wanted to point out, too, was and you had the families on the radio call in about an hour ago. Both of them have issues with their kids that are medical issues and you talked about how because they didn't have medical insurance it wiped out their life savings. And my point is if you don't have health coverage in this country, there's some type of safety net for people who don't have insurance otherwise, would be better off -- 

GLENN: Yeah, we do have -- excuse me. We do have that. It's called Medicare and Medicaid. We do have that.

CALLER: But families have to give away all their possessions to qualify for Medicaid.

GLENN: Because that is the way that -- it should be, quite honestly, that if you are a dire, dire situation, then you can come to the government as your very last resort. Just in this situation they do have people that can help them out. Now, they're in -- there's two families now in dire situations. They've made it for, what, two years on their own? They've made it. Other people, the communities rallied around them, their friends, their family. Some of them were living with their -- one of the families, living with their mother for a while. That's the way it's supposed to happen. But this family, these two families I believe have been targeted. They have been targeted unjustly. That is the real, the real problem with this story. These guys have been targeted unjustly. And now to sick the IRS on them. It's just -- no, it's classy. It's really, really classy.

CALLER: I think that is -- my point was if you had universal health coverage, this mother wouldn't have to be going to the hospital to beg and scream for help for these kids.

GLENN: And if you had universal health coverage, you would also have some of the worst health coverage because we are -- 

CALLER: That's not accurate, Glenn, they have health coverage in England and if France -- 

GLENN: Excuse me, Rich, do you really want to -- Rich! Do you really want to get into the healthcare of France? By the way, sir, you are paying outrageous prices for healthcare in France and then on top of it 70% of the population also has to have private healthcare insurance to cover the stuff you can't get from the government! So please don't come on with your bullcrap universal healthcare socialist plans that don't work. You tell me, Rich, why there are cases in the Canadian Supreme Court right now, people fighting because the government want give them healthcare. You tell me, Rich, about the great stories that are happening in England right now if you are not a producer. If you are somebody who is overage, you are not getting kidney dialysis, you are not getting expensive healthcare coverage because you no longer produce! So I mean, you want to talk about healthcare, let's talk about the wonderful system of the 12-hour wait in hospitals now in London. 12 hours people are waiting to get any kind of healthcare. So the government said "That's unreasonable; you can't do that. You can't do that. This is government healthcare. You should have government healthcare. You should be able to see a doctor within three hours." So what did they do to fix it? Now if you call an ambulance and you get into an ambulance, they cannot keep you waiting for a doctor for more than three hours. So now they haul your butt to the hospital in an ambulance where you will sit in an ambulance for nine hours and then they will say, "Oh, the doctor's about to see you," and then put you in under three hours in the waiting room. It is a shell game, sir, and if you really want to know the truth, all you have to do is read the papers out of England and when you start reading the papers out of England and see the government suddenly saying, "You know, we need to privatize some of these hospitals." Wait a minute, isn't that privatization, isn't that a damn, a damning statement on socialized medicine? "Oh, no, no, we just think there are some things that the private sector can do to help out the..." it's bullcrap. It's socialism. It is bad healthcare. And if you really want to know the facts, sir, they're there. But you could just give me the socialist agenda. Thanks for calling. Get off my phone. Oh, jeez.

You know, here's another thing. You know the -- you know one of the founding members of Greenpeace, one of the founding members of Greenpeace -- got to have Greenpeace. Got to do it. Got to do it. Then they started -- they decided that they wanted to ban chlorine. It's on the periodic table of elements. Man's not made -- it's not like a Dow Chemical. Chlorine. It's an element. "We've got to ban it." You can't ban an element! We've got to ban it. He left. You're crazy. You're crazy. What are you trying to do? You can't change the laws of the universe. "Yes, we can." You're nuts; bye-bye. The guy who first said, "Global warming, global warming, global warming, global warming, we've got to pay attention to global warming," nobody will talk to him in the environmental movement anymore. He's a pariah. Why? Because there's one clean energy. It's called nuclear energy. No! We can't have any common sense. Global warming, it's so much better if we have no energy.

How many people, how many people do you read about in your beloved Europe, that died in the heat wave? Why? Because they didn't have air conditioning. They died in the heat wave. How many people do we hear about that are freezing to death in the cold? Yeah, let's not get any more oil for heating. Let's not have any more nuclear power plants to make sure people can stay warm or cold at the appropriate times. No. Let's just worry about the planet. You tell me. Every single one of these crazy ideas, the people who started them are off. Your beloved healthcare in Canada. One of the guys who started it is now against it. You want to -- you want to know the truth? The truth is out there. But nobody will do it.

You know there's a story today that is going around now about Barack Obama, saying that I have become a symbol of American traditions. First, first glance at this is, you've got to be kidding me. This guy is the biggest egomaniac on the planet. But then you actually read it in context. That's not what he's saying. What he's saying is the crowds are not coming for me. The crowds are coming for an image. The crowds are coming -- this should scare the crap out of you. The crowds are coming for a dream. And they're just putting that dream in me. Wow, Obama, I didn't think you got it. You do. Nobody is listening to what he has to say. It's dream, it's hope, it's change. It's the idea we can be a better person. But Ronald Reagan actually told us how to do it! He's not. It's not about him. He is the unnamed Democrat or the unnamed Republican that everybody always says, "Oh, yeah, well, I'd vote for the unnamed Democrat because he's great." Nobody's actually looking at this guy.

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."
