Glenn Beck: Forest through the trees

GLENN: I was walking to work today, I was walking with a friend of mine and he said to me -- he said, Glenn, I don't think any one of these guys, McCain or Barack Obama, are making any headway on any of this stuff with oil. And I said, well, why do you think that is? Well, because I don't think either one of them has it right yet. No. It's that neither one of them have said anything that they really truly believed in quite some time. Last year everybody was all on the global warming bandwagon. We weren't on the global warming bandwagon. Stu, you been on the global warming bandwagon?

STU: All over, Glenn.

GLENN: Yeah. We were on the global warming bandwagon so much that we had RFK, Jr. calling me a corporate toadie and a shill and, you know, basically just one in a long list of people who should be imprisoned because our viewpoint was criminal. I don't really care. See, what we need is politician that doesn't really care. You don't like him, oh, well, you don't like him. Don't vote for him. That's what we need. Somebody who actually says what they mean and mean what they say. But these politicians, all they do is they say what's politically expedient at the time. Political expediency, that's all there is. That's all that matters to people now. "Well, wait a minute, what do the polls say? What do the people say? Why, you can't say that. You'll offend this special interest group over here." I don't really care. That's what I believe. I mean, how stupid do you have to be?

I'm reading a new book called Petro State. Putin, Power and the New Russia." Just listen to the back cover of this and tell me how much trouble is coming our way if we don't wake up on oil. This is from Marvin Kalb, the Moscow bureau chief, CBS news. This may be Golden's best book and that's saying a lot, focusing on Putin's Russia with a scholar's commitment to deep and meaningful research and reporter's eye for detail of color. Goldman has explained why and how Russia has again emerged as a global power. The answer is oil. At inflated prices it leads directly to inflated national aspirations and further down the road to dangers of a totally unpredictable nature. Read and learn. This one comes from professor of politics, Princeton University. Few developments are likely to reshape the contours of international -- excuse me. Why am I hearing something in my headphones, please? Could we have that fixed today, Dan? Excuse me. I'm sorry. All of a sudden my headphones just start picking up another show.

Few developments are likely to reshape the contours of international politics over the next decade more than Russia's ascent to an energy superpower and no one can tell the story, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Superb and readable description, yada, yada. The KGB is back with oil and petro dollars. This is a resurgence of Russia's power base, based on petro dollars.

We don't -- nobody's paying attention because all that John McCain and Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and everybody else, all they do is pay attention to today. They don't look at what's coming tomorrow. You know, they are looking either at today or what's going to come in 1,000 years from now. I got news for ya, gang. 1,000 years from now I hope we have better solutions. Look at what the world was like in 1008. You know, I don't think we could have sat back. Can you imagine -- can you imagine the arrogance of the people that were ruling the world in 1008. Well, what is this going to mean in 2008? What kind of policy should we make now in 1008? That's ridiculously stupid. "Well, I don't know. Is this ink that we're working on right now here in the Bible, is it good for the environment, or will the polar ice caps melt in 1,000 years? Oh, what will those people do while they're trying to scribe in their Bibles in 1,000 years." That's ridiculous! But that's all our politicians are talking to us about. 1,000 years from now or today.

Here's what I care about today. I care about the next one year, five years, ten years, 50 years. What we do will affect those years. What we do today will not affect today. It may affect a little bit tomorrow, a little bit more in five years, a lot in ten, and a huge amount in twenty. But everybody just wants to fix everything today. I'm sorry, but the Constitution didn't come from McDonald's. Some of these problems we have to look at, why is Russia going over and trying to buy -- this is a story that I found two weeks ago. I can't find it any place else. Nobody's paying attention to it. You've got to ask yourself why. Why is Russia going over to Libya and trying to buy all of their oil? Why is it that their minister of energy has said we are only interested in carbon energy now? Because they're looking to the future. Because Putin doesn't have to answer to the public. Oh, sure. I mean, he's got those elections he has to worry about. I was looking through this book last night. I mean, Stu, you're -- this is your kind of book because it's got all kinds of charts in it. It's got all kinds of charts and graphs, and it's talking about all of the gas companies and all of the -- and all of the heads of the media and the oil companies and everything else from the beginning of -- you know, from the fall of Russia, and it's absolutely amazing. I'm trying to find one of these things. It's absolutely amazing because if you look at them and you see what happened to each of these guys that were running, these companies -- I can't find it now. I can't find it now. It's hysterical. It's, you know, so-and-so arrested, so-and-so killed, so-and-so arrested, so-and-so arrested, and they're all -- these are the CEOs, and Putin all of a sudden appoints someone. Clean. No more problems. No more arrests. All of a sudden the oil company starts to just get everything done. It's amazing what this country has done. This country, Russia, sees the future. They know what's coming. Meanwhile we are playing games in Washington for power and it is short-term power. Somebody in Washington has to stand up and say what they mean and actually mean what they say.

Is it too much to ask, is it really too much to ask? Just tell me what you really mean. Now you have Barack Obama coming out and saying, well, we're not going to do the oil drilling. Well, I mean, we will if we have to compromise to get something done. You're not going to do it. If you're President of the United States and you have Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in congress and you're controlling Nancy and Harry as well, you're not going to drill. Why not just say that. Why not just, why not -- if you really, truly believe it, say it and damn the consequences. I am convinced that somebody who really says what they mean and mean what they say, somebody who just, they don't care, they just don't care. They know what's important. 

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.
