Glenn Beck: It's a Marshmallow World



Mark Steyn Single


A Marshmallow World

(It's A Marshmellow World.)

Glenn: All right. I just want to play this because this is a new song from Mark Steyn who is the -- I mean, you're listening to this and you're, like, didn't they just deem him some sort of a hatemonger up in Canada and try to pull his books back from telling the truth about what he saw about Islamic extremism and now he's singing It's A Marshmallow World. Mark Steyn, welcome to the program.

Steyn: Good to be with you. I believe I am the only hatemonger with a holiday single.

Glenn: What are you -- I love it, by the way, but what were you thinking?

Steyn: Well, oddly enough, once I had had that trial in Vancouver, which was back in the summer, and I flew out of Vancouver, my world was ready to explode with all of these hate crimes and I was having a drink with Jessica Martin, who is also singing on that record, over in London and we were talking about what would sort of cheer me up and the idea of actually doing a Christmas single and getting all of this out of my head was kind of a therapy for me after the hate crimes business.

Glenn: How did that work out for you, by the way?

Steyn: Well, we -- we were actually -- they acquitted us in Vancouver, wholly and properly, by the way, because it's the human right not to be offended. That's what Canada that has. They have this thing if you publish something and somebody takes offense, as these Islamist guys did, then essentially you're guilty, but they decided to acquit us on political grounds. So, we're now suing the queen to actually get this stupid law ruled unconstitutional and overthrown.

Glenn: All right. Let's switch gears here for a second. Apparently Dick Cheney, in a closed door Senate GOP lunch on Wednesday, warned the GOP, quote, that it will be Herbert Hoover time in aid to the industry was rejected for the bailout of the big three. This is exactly the same kind of stuff that they were saying about the bank bailout, but now they're saying it about GM. What do you think about what's going on right now, Mark?

Steyn: Well, I think there's no end to this bailout. It's bailout without end. We need to find a way to bailout from the bailout and actually, with respect to Dick Cheney, I think he's got it actually wrong here. You know, it's very interesting to me, speaking as a foreigner, but the Americans always talk about the great depression. In other countries, they talk about it as a depression. It started in 1929, the worth was over in three or four years. What prolonged it in the United States was both Herbert Hoover and FDR over in overinterfering in the economy to impede recovery. That's why it's a great depression in the United States and it's just a depression everywhere else.

Glenn: So, how do we get this message out, Mark, because we are -- I mean, you have -- you came over here. You love this country.

Steyn: Yeah.

Glenn: You came over here because you saw what was happening over in Europe and in England and you're like, Okay. Well, I've got to get over here. I speak to so many people who have come from Cuba or Russia or Poland or France, anywhere, and they come over here and they say, what are you guys doing? We've seen this movie before. This doesn't end well.

Steyn: No. And this is the last stop for most of us. This is as far as we can go. If you can't escape to America, there's nowhere else and as you say, we've all seen this movie before and in the 1960's, the British government attempted to prop up the British auto industry. They were big names, Triumph.

Glenn: Say "Jaguar." Say "Jaguar."

Steyn: Lovely stuff. And what happened was by the 1970's, if you wanted a new model car, you would put your name down on a list and you waited six months and they got back to you. It was the Soviet Union. The fact is you can't bail out three companies who are making cars at a price nobody will pay for them. GM and Ford and Chrysler cannot make an automobile at a price that any customer is prepared to pay for it. So, if you simply throw billions of dollars at the failed model, you've got more of the failed model.

Glenn: Mark, how concerned are you from -- you know, we started talking last year and, you know, we've talked about Islamic extremism and everything else and, you know, I've been talking about this perfect storm that's headed our way and I just -- I don't see how much more pressure can be put on this table before somebody comes and kicks one of the legs out. How concerned are you about a clicking -- a ticking clock here that is just starting to tick faster and faster and faster?

Steyn: I think that's the real issue. It's the connection between the domestic stuff and the overseas stuff is you get the sense right now that America on November the 4th consciously chose to turn its back on some of these unpleasant issues out there. I notice, if you believe what you read in the Israeli papers, that Obama has essentially hold the Israeli government he accepts the reality and the inevitability of an Iranian nuclear bottom. Mere not talking about them going numerous to you. We're talking about how to live with it. Nothing good is going to come up that and in a sense I think there is a moral issue at the heart of all this, Glenn, that when you look at the -- what happened to the big three auto bailout, they got greedy, they got comfortable, they set themselves up with pension plans and health plans that weren't sustainable. The same with the mortgage bailout. People got mortgages that were unreal. These things are very serious because they strike at the heart of the soundness of capitalism, just at a time when capitalism and free markets are one of the greatest things we've got going for us and he, up against a battle with forces who want to industry capitalism. Why we want to erode it from within is beyond me.

Glenn: Mark Steyn from Steynonline.com. We'll talk to you again, my friend. Thank you.

Steyn: Always a pleasure, Glenn.

Glenn: All right. Bye-bye.

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.
