GLENN: Yes, that's right. California is now in a budget crisis and, you know, a lot happens when a crisis hits. You want to make sure you never let a crisis go to waste. I'm sorry, I didn't say that, that's just Rahm Emanuel. Let's just get the social elements of the ACLU to help us out a little bit and that's when the rest of us are left scratching our heads as mass numbers of prisoners are being set free in the name of saving a buck and help balance the budget, and this logic is going to amaze you.

The ACLU has been successfully filing lawsuits against prisons for quite some time now. What they do is they claim that it's a human rights violation to keep prisoners in crowded spaces. The lawsuits are virtually always won by the ACLU, and after the suits are filed but before any court decisions are handed down, prison populations grow more slowly in the litigation states. Got it? The ACLU keeps suing and the prison population goes down slightly.

Let me give it to you in a less cryptic way. Criminals are being let back out on the streets because of the ACLU. Well done, mission accomplished, ACLU. Not only do you stop that horrible human rights violation of people being a little crowded in prison but you've also helped California's bottom line. Study points out a little hiccup in the process, however. I mean, who would have seen this one coming? But apparently when criminals are released in large numbers -- again I'm not a scientist, but try to figure this one out. Crime goes up. Isn't that weird? But in the land of socialism and for the greater good, what's a few extra violent crimes every year? Quoting the New York Times: Ultimately violent crime will be roughly 6% higher in Californian it would have been absent the lawsuit. That is roughly 150 extra homicides a year, 500 additional rapes and 4500 more robberies. Oh, those 500 women that have been raped, I mean, I'm sure they will understand the greater good argument. You know, aren't you willing to be raped to help the budget deficit in California? I mean, seriously. New York Times -- and this is actually from the freakonomic guys who I love. The New York Times continues: While those crime numbers sound bad, letting out the prisoners, from a wash perspective. Oh, I'm sure the 150 extra families who have had their loved ones murdered and, of course, the 500 rape victims would more or less get on board with this being more or less a wash. "The money we save from prisoners is on the same order of magnitude as the pain and suffering associated with the extra crime." Excuse me? Pardon me? Anyway, when you base all your policies on experts who know everyone and they are the only ones that can do the job -- Tim Geithner -- this is how you stop thinking about things: "Don't worry. The cash we save will cover the pain we cause." And then when you give the state the power to act on these recommendations, it only gets worse. The study and the book freakonomics both go on to conclude that tougher penalties drastically lower violent crime rates. Wait a minute. Tougher penalties drastically lower violent crime rate, how is that possible? And I don't even know why you need to read the book when you can learn the same lesson with the minimum societal cost of only 500 rapes. I mean...

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.
