GLENN: Let me go to Kirk who is -- who wants to be our couple of the year contestant. We have Kirk on the phone? Kirk, how are you, sir?

CALLER: Well, I'm about six feet underneath the doghouse right now.

GLENN: What happened on Valentine's? Why did you forget your wife, you know, Valentine's Day?

CALLER: Well, you know, Valentine's Day I was -- I went north to go snowmobiling and just totally didn't even pay attention to the day. You know, I lost track of days. I know you --

GLENN: I said slugs.

CALLER: All these advertisements, all this stuff. And I'm like, gee, I've got to do that, I've got to do that, oh, yeah, I've got to do that.

GLENN: I told you!

CALLER: And I never did it. And, you know, then I went up north and went snowmobiling with my buddy and, yeah, this is not good.

GLENN: Now, I just filled out a form letter for you. Your wife's name is Carolyn?

CALLER: Yes, it is.

GLENN: How angry was she?

CALLER: Well, you know, we really didn't speak a whole lot when I came home.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

CALLER: I just, I got home kind of late and she just was like, well, how was your weekend. And I'm like, well, hardly there was hardly any snow up there.

STU: Glenn, you should know, too, we have to get to Carolyn and also that Kirk forgot a birthday as well recently. So he's in the major, major doghouse.

GLENN: Okay, listen. Listen to me. You better send -- where are you sending her? Where are you taking her to dinner?

CALLER: I'd like to go to Gilbert's up in Lake Geneva.

GLENN: Is it expensive?

CALLER: Yes, it is.

GLENN: Really expensive, like make your eyes bleed expensive?

CALLER: Yeah, it's what gets the country out of recession, it's so expensive.

GLENN: I hope you bleed all over the table when you're doing this, you forget your wife's birthday and Valentine's Day. Okay, you ready?

STU: How many seconds, Glenn?

GLENN: Let me give him -- he forgot a birthday, too. Eight seconds. Do you know how to do this, Kirk?

CALLER: Yeah, I was listening to one of the other former.

GLENN: I'm going to say, do you have anything else to say? And you say, yes, Carolyn. Then you count to eight slowly, Carolyn, then you count to eight, "I love you." You got it?

CALLER: Jeez, I hope I can do this.

GLENN: You better do it.

CALLER: I'm going to do it. I mean, I'm gonna. I have to.

GLENN: Here we go. Let's go ahead and start the introduction, put her on hold so she can hear the show. And that's coming up and today's going to be sunny and 76 degrees.

VOICE: And now it's the contest a year in the making, it's Glenn Beck's quest to find America's ultimate couple of love. The essays have been written, the heartfelt words have been read and the winner has been selected. So now to introduce the country's most passionate pair, here's the love god himself, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Well, here we are on the program and we were supposed to do this on Friday but as you know if you are a regular listener to the program, you know what happened to me and I broke my leg and wasn't able to be here on Friday. So we had to postpone and Stu called our winner and told him not to reveal it to his wife and he is on the phone with us now. Hello, Kirk, how are you?

CALLER: Well, I'm okay.

GLENN: You were in trouble this weekend?

CALLER: I believe so, I believe so, yeah.

GLENN: But does she know? Did you give her any indication that this was happening?

CALLER: No, no, sir.

GLENN: Wow, I'm sorry, Kirk. I just had an accident. I was out repairing the roof and it's a long story, but sorry about that. So let me get Carolyn on the phone. Is she with us?

CALLER: I'm here.

GLENN: Hi, Carolyn, how are you?

CALLER: I'm good, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: I'm good. I have to apologize. Are you a listener to this show?

CALLER: Yes, actually. Kirk and I actually have breakfast together every morning and listen to you just first thing.

GLENN: Really?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

GLENN: This should be great then. So you're both listeners to the program and Carolyn, what happened this weekend?

CALLER: You know, it's funny because I'm kind of in the same boat as you because you and I actually share the same birthday and then Valentine's Day came and went and so did my birthday and absolutely nothing. Kirk actually went snowmobiling this weekend.

GLENN: You know what, Carolyn, I have to be honest with you. There's -- you know, we do this couple of the year contest every year, and I've --

CALLER: What?

GLENN: I've never, ever come to the point to where I have to tell someone the truth.

STU: Yeah, the truth.

GLENN: But I have to tell you the truth.

STU: Your husband --

GLENN: Because I can't -- you sound like a wonderful woman and you're a listener and you sound great. Kirk called to have me cover his ass for Saturday, and I'm just not ready to do it.

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: I'm just not willing to do it.

STU: Glenn.

CALLER: Oh, no.

STU: You are totally breaking the trust of the audience.

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: What? By what, lying? By lying to Carolyn who listens to the program. She trusts me. I mean, look, you don't know me, that's fine, whatever, I'll help out a listener.

CALLER: You go the way of the girl. I get how this works.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: This is a total sellout.

GLENN: What did you say, Carolyn?

CALLER: I'm surprised.

GLENN: You're surprised what? At Kirk or at me?

CALLER: I don't know. I don't know what to think.

GLENN: Listen, here's the thing. Your husband got busy last week. He forgot. He forgot. That's what happened. He went snowmobiling.

CALLER: The water heater.

GLENN: That's what guys do. We forgot. You know what I mean? We just move on with our life. So he forgot. Then he called me. He wanted me, because I do a contest where I covered for schlubs because I'm a schlub, too. But then I get you on the phone. I can't do it. I can't do it to you. You sound nice. So I can't cover. Now here's what he's going to do. He's going to take you out to Gilbert's.

CALLER: Oh.

GLENN: He says that's a really nice place. Is it?

CALLER: It is. It's actually where we got married.

GLENN: I want you to order the most expensive thing on the menu.

CALLER: Really?

GLENN: Yeah. Not on me. On him. I want you to eat -- I want you to -- and I don't even want you to eat it all. I want you to have like -- I want you to have surf and turf and ask for extra, extra surf. And then don't even eat it all. And when he says, are you going to eat that, say... no, and neither are you.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Now Kirk?

CALLER: Yeah. Yes?

GLENN: I want you at the referral box to use my name Glenn Beck at checkout. That's Legalzoom.com.

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.
