Glenn Beck: Pursuit, not guarantee

Helping Obama pays...

GLENN: How many times have I said it, too, that I don't say the things that I do because I want to. I don't want to believe these things but do you remember, America, when we were told we were crazy, when we -- could you please play the -- this is the Obama supporter during one of the campaign rallies, and we spent quite a few minutes on this and, boy, did I get the heat from saying, "Look what the man is creating." Listen to this.

VOICE: It was the most memorable time of my life. It was a touching moment. Because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he's going to help me.

GLENN: If I help him, he's going to help me. Now, I want you to look at this in two ways. Stu, write this down so I don't forget. One, what is he creating; and two, disenfranchisement. Come back to disenfranchisement of this individual, okay? "If I help him, he'll help me." "I never have to worry about paying my gas or my mortgage. If I help him, he'll help me." Do you remember how we talked about that and how many of your friends said to you, "Oh, please, stop calling him a Marxist, stop calling him a socialist. He's not going to turn us into that." Well, he may not -- if he's not a socialist, if he's not a Marxist, then he must be a heroin dealer. I believe our new president is pushing a much more powerful version of heroin, and he is getting people all strung out. Anybody see Taken? Did you see the movie Taken? Stu, you saw it, right?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Holy cow.

STU: It was good. You didn't like it?

GLENN: I've got daughters. I've got three daughters. I don't want to go see Taken. Oh, my gosh. I was sitting there like... I don't want to watch this.

STU: Yeah, it was intense.

GLENN: Yeah, really intense. So what happened in Taken real quick? You got, you know, a split family, blah, blah, blah. Two girls go over to Paris. What happens?

STU: Well, one of them gets -- or both of them get Taken, hence the title.

GLENN: Kidnapped.

STU: Yeah, kidnapped. And without spoiling too much, basically they are taken into custody where they are going to be going into this sex slavery ring, and the way that they do that to get them to acquiesce to this is essentially get them hooked on heroin, therefore they're so dependent on the heroin that they --

GLENN: They will do whatever.

STU: They are easy to manage.

GLENN: Yeah, they are easy to manage. Get them hooked on heroin and these girls will be prostitutes because they are going to need the heroin. You think it's outrageous to say the president of the United States is pushing heroin. The heroin that he is pushing is government. Get them so strung out on government aid that they just can't live without it. Let me show you three examples. This is from his town meeting. If anybody's not watching his town meetings, boy, you should be watching them because you're seeing the future of America. Here are three questions that came at the new president Barack Obama yesterday. Question number one.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Go ahead.

VOICE: Oh, this is such a blessing to see you, Mr. President. Thank you for taking time out of your day. Oh, gracious God, thank you so much.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: All right, what's --

GLENN: Stop.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, gracious God, thank you so much. Are you thinking, wonder if I can get that guy's resume. Anyway, here he goes.

VOICE: Mr. President, my name is Julio Osegueda. I'm currently a student at Edison State College at my second semester. Okay, I've been at the same job which is McDonald's for four-and-a-half years.

GLENN: Stop. Who's surprised by that? Is there anybody? I have to tell you I was because I know managers at McDonald's. I can't imagine them keeping this guy around for four-and-a-half years. But oh gracious god, Ron decided, "I'm a clown. I wear big red shoes. Why not have somebody else take the focus off me for a while."

VOICE: Because of the fact that I can't find another job. Now, with the fact that I've been there for as long as I've been there, do you have any plan or any idea of making one that has been there for a long time receive any better benefits than what they've already received?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I tell you what, first of all --

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. Listen to what he's asking. I've been there... for four years... and I can't, I can't find another job. There might be a reason for that. Some people, you know, they're going to be working at McDonald's, and that's okay. There's nothing wrong with -- I was going to tell you a personal story, but I can't. Let me just tell you this. When did we become a nation where we find shame in working at McDonald's? When did we become a nation where it's just not good enough to work at a car dealership or a grocery store or whatever, that everybody has to be rich? Where, when did we become a nation where we all deserve the same thing? Or, we're all capable of the same thing? All men are created equal and they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights: The pursuit of life, liberty, of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You've got a life, you have liberty, and you can pursue your happiness. It goes back to one of our principles. The principles that we've been asking you to sign up for, that goes back to the principles. You're not guaranteed an equal outcome. You are guaranteed the right to pursue your happiness. But what is he asking for? An equal outcome. I've worked there for four-and-a-half years. I want more benefits. Do you have a plan? And the answer is -- I don't know what his answer is, but the answer is yes, it's card check. But card check really isn't even their plan. Oh, it's much more insidious than just card check, believe it or not. That is -- card check is what they're throwing out there and hoping that everybody will pay attention to card check because they've got another plan, and I'll share that in the upcoming days. But it ain't card check, gang.

So do you have a plan? No. No, I don't. No, I don't. You're just going to have to keep working, brother. You keep studying, you keep going to school. You got a job, you're going to school, good for you. You keep working. I don't have a plan for you to get extra benefits; you're working at McDonald's. The benefits are the benefits. I don't have anything to say about McDonald's, period. That's what the president should say. But what does he say?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: A couple of things I'd like to say. Number one, the fact that you are working as hard as you're working at a job that I know doesn't always pay as well as some other jobs is a source of pride for you that shows that you're doing a right thing.

GLENN: Good for you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, the second thing is, is that you will actually benefit from the tax breaks that we're talking about. So you'll be able to keep a little bit of extra money because we're going to offset your payroll tax. That's going to --

GLENN: Stop, stop. I'm going to offset your payroll tax. So I am -- here I am, Uncle Obama. I'm here to give you something. So you're going to go ahead. You're going to benefit from voting for me.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's going to help. I don't -- I assume that you're not getting healthcare through your job and so one of the things that we want to do is reform the healthcare system so that you will have access to healthcare in your job. But the thing that I'm really --

GLENN: Okay, stop. Do you know how much a McDonald's hamburger is going to be if McDonald's has to pay for this guy, pay for his healthcare? I don't know what his -- I mean, I don't know what his deal is. He might be part time. I mean, now Obama is going to go ahead and either force McDonald's to pay for healthcare or -- no, no, no, he's going to make sure that all of us pay for this guy's healthcare. That's what Uncle Obama's going to do for you. He is Uncle Sam, and you should trust him as much as you trust Uncle Sam. And if you trust Uncle Sam, you're a dope.

Speaking of dope, how about our next heroin user? Can we go to the next? This is all from the press conference yesterday. There was this man that was, oh, praise Jesus that you're here. And then there's this individual.

VOICE: I respect you and I'm so grateful for you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you.

VOICE: I've been praying for you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I believe in prayer. So I appreciate that.

VOICE: I have an urgent need.

GLENN: Good for you.

VOICE: Employment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in. We need urgent, and housing authority have two years waiting list and we need something more than a vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well --

GLENN: Stop, stop. Please help. Now, let's be cold in a minute. First here's a woman who's living in her car. To tell you the truth -- and I hope she doesn't mind me sharing this. I won't identify. I have a member of our staff that lived in her car. She lived in her car with her mother. It's a long story, but she went to school with people not knowing that she lived in her car. The reason why she wanted to get into radio is because she used to hear my voice and she said it gave her hope that she could accomplish anything. She got to a radio station, our paths crossed, I heard her story much later but she told me the first time, "I want to work for you." I said, "Well, work hard." Every time our paths crossed, I was impressed by what she did. She wasn't just saying, "What can you do for me." Every time our paths crossed, I couldn't believe the accomplishments that she had done. So the last time I saw her, this is I think last Christmas a year ago, I got -- we were on the plane and I said to my whole team, "I want each one of you guys -- don't say anything. I just want each one of you guys to spend a few minutes with her. We get back on the plane, I want a report from all of you guys." "Well, what are we looking for?" "I just want you to find out if she's solid." Got back on the plane. I said, "Would she be somebody that could work with us? Is she good enough to work with with all of you guys?" They all had rave reviews. I hired her. A girl who lived in her car through high school. Government wasn't involved. I never gave her a handout. She earned it. She deserves to have self-respect because nobody brought her on. In fact, when we hired her, I told her immediate supervisor, "You be very clear with her. She could come out and she could fail, and we don't play a game of if you fail, you're gone. So this could set her back. She's got to succeed, but it's going to be up to her." She has succeeded. So here is the thing. You could have sympathy and you could allow people to continue to live in that state or you could encourage them and say, "You know what, I know it's really hard for you, but I'm the president of the United States. I see everybody. I'm not hear to help and give anyone a kitchen. I can't imagine what your life is like living in your car and having a kitchen. But you hold on and you keep working hard and don't you give up."

Now, people will say that's cold. In the long run that's what keeps somebody off of the heroin of government aid and that is slavery. Instead what does Obama do? Listen up.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I -- listen. What's your name? What's your name?

VOICE: It's Henrietta Hughes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Okay, Ms. Hughes, we're going to do everything we can to help you, but there are a lot of people like you and we're going to do everything we can. I'll have my staff talk to you after this, after the town hall, all right?

GLENN: Stop. For what? For what? I'm going to have her talk to you about what? What is the president of the United States going to do to get this woman a kitchen? And if he gets her a kitchen, how about me a kitchen? How about you a kitchen? Do you need a microwave oven? Have you had a flat tire? Could we call the president? And then can we just play the last one, Cut 4.

VOICE: Also, welcome, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you.

VOICE: And my question to you today is as you stated earlier, there are many of us here in the area that are unemployed and have been unemployed for sometime and probably some of us have large families.

GLENN: Listen to this family.

VOICE: And we have had the opportunity to receive unemployment but yet we have not been able to get any other type of governmental assistance to help us during this crisis so that we can kind of be able to take, you know, funds that we do have in unemployment to pay our bills. Usually what happens is when you apply for governmental assistance, they say, well, you make too much money. If you go from making $3,000 a year, a month to $1100 a month, how are you able to take care of your families? Why can't we have that to be automatic that goes along with your unemployment tenure that you can get government assistance that's an automatic for you?

GLENN: It's an automatic. How can I survive if I only get $1100 a month? I need $3,000 a month. Can't we get that automatic?

Look, I am for doing good for the poor. We just happen to disagree. I have a difference of opinion. I think the best way of doing good for the poor is to not make it easy in poverty but to lead people out, drive them out of poverty, make them uncomfortable. By the way, those words were not from just a hate monger like me. Those words were actually, that's a quote from Benjamin Franklin. What an evil kite-flying white hate monger. Look where we've come and how far away we are from our principles.

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.

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.
