GLENN: Let's go to William in Portland. Hello, William.

CALLER: Good morning, Glenn. Hello.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

CALLER: Well, I'm rather upset at you and I'll tell you why.

GLENN: All right.

CALLER: I was a McCain/Palin supporter, and you spent a good part of the election season putting the knock on McCain.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: And one day you said that you didn't want McCain because he flirted with socialism and you didn't know what he was going to do but you knew what Obama was going to do and you admitted that you knew Obama was a stoned Marxist. And mine is not only to you but to the conservatives that voted with you this way. We could have had a decent ticket. I mean, we had Sarah Palin. I am terrified for the future of this country. I don't want to be a socialist. I don't want the government running my healthcare.

GLENN: Which way did I vote?

CALLER: I have no idea. That's your private business. You don't even tell me. But I mean --

GLENN: Well, no, you're saying that all you people that voted this way. I voted for Palin.

CALLER: All right, that's good. But the point is, Glenn, you spent a lot of the election season casting shadows on McCain, and I wish that --

GLENN: Yeah, because he deserves them. See, here's the thing. Here's the thing. William, you are not going to win this argument because I believe Ronald Reagan was wrong. He was wrong. The 11th commandment, thou shalt not tear down any other Republican, bullcrap. You call bullcrap when you see bullcrap, period. I don't believe in the, you know, the, "Well, shhh, keep quiet over here." Let me tell you something else, William. What would have been worse? What is worse? You've got a guy now. If America will not get worn out, if America will keep standing, if people don't tune out, you're going to be okay. But if people get worn out, then we won't be. So who gets -- hang on, William. So who gets, who wins first here? Is he going to give up or are you going to give up?

Now let me ask you this: This economy, you don't have to believe me, but when it happens, then maybe you'll say, "Oh, gee, maybe I should have listened." This economy globally is going to go right down the crapper. This economy is going -- we are going to be looking at a depression, a depression, very bad stuff coming our way. Now, you ask yourself this -- could I make my point, please, William?

CALLER: Then can I --

GLENN: You ask yourself this question, William. (Can I make mine) Which would be better for, to have a guy that is flirting with socialists to say, see, we didn't go far enough, or the guy who is completely transforming this economy overnight and tying up our businesses and labor unions and everything else? Who's going to be blamed for it? I'd rather have it not be a conservative who's not a conservative.

CALLER: Glenn, that is so crazy. By the time this guy gets done, we might not be able to undo the damage he did.

GLENN: Let me tell you something, William. By the time any of these clowns would be done, they're taking us to the same damn destination. They're taking us to the same place. It is a socialist state.

I read a stat last night on television. We were 37% of our GDP was going for government programs. 37% of our GDP is a government expenditure. Now it's going to be up about 40%. Well, gee, wait a minute. Weren't the Republicans in charge for the last eight years? They were taking us to the same place, just slower. I don't want to go that place. I will vote for somebody who says, "No, I'm not going to be socialist. I believe in the founding fathers' principles." The only reason I had to vote for John McCain was because I believed that Sarah Palin actually had a clue as to who we are. John McCain is part of it. He is in that system. Go ahead, defend John McCain. What?

CALLER: We could have had Sarah Palin in the loop. We've got a Marxist, we've got --

GLENN: Did you see what John McCain did to her? If you think that it was just the media that just trashed Sarah Palin, you're kidding yourself, jack. It was in -- that was an inside job. The Republicans are just afraid of her as the Democrats are, and John McCain was no friend of Sarah Palin. Believe me on that one.

CALLER: -- under socialism.

GLENN: What?

CALLER: I do not want to live under socialism.

GLENN: Well, then let's leave it at that because neither do I. Okay, we're going to leave it at that. I guess we're coming together. We're just building bridges to each other. Unfortunately it's the government building the bridge. I don't want to live under socialism, either, my friend. I don't think any of us do. No, I didn't say that. Julio does. Barack Obama does. Many of the people in congress do. Arlen Specter does. So what the hell. I don't, nor will I. If that's the way everybody wants to go, that's great. I ain't playing that game. I'll go to jail. I don't care. I'm not going to be a socialist. I'll move to the Bahamas. I'll move some place else. I'd rather live in a country like Canada. I've never said this. I'd rather live in a country like Canada that was socialist from the start than betray the founding fathers and the principles and have them so distorted. I will stand as long as I can stand, and I know I'm not alone. Because, William, you can go ahead and blame it on people like me that wouldn't go for socialism lite, but I'm not the enemy. Socialism lite. Oh, gee, honey, do you want rat poison or... now with 50% less of the poison. "Gee, I don't think I want either of those!" But too many people will just go up to the -- and this is why it exists because people will -- they know. You will take the lesser of two evils. They only have to provide you with two products: Poison and poison lite. Because you'll take the poison lite.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

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."
