Giant Teleprompter Telegraphs Obama Caution

GLENN: I saw the Barack Obama speech last night anytime telling you blood shot out of my eyes which did -- first of all, let me just, may I have an ADD moment here before we get into the meat and potatoes of everything. Is it bothering anybody else about the TelePrompTer? The TelePrompTer is really, really, really bothering me only because I have never seen -- I mean, we're looking for a guy who's real, who's himself, who's just like -- well, I got news for you, gang. I do three hours a day without a TelePrompTer. You know, the president is worried about, you know, well, one word can, you know, trip him up. Well, you don't think people like me or Rush or Sean are worried about that as well? You don't think people in talk radio know that there are people that have been hired to transcribe every word I say to be able to distort it, to take it out of context and use it against me.

STU: Their entire form of governing has been targeting words taken out of context of Rush Limbaugh.

GLENN: Yeah. So I mean, it really bothers me, this TelePrompTer thing. Last night I said -- I was watching it and in the middle I said, because I know a little bit about TelePrompTers because on television I do use a TelePrompTer from time to time and I'm watching, I'm watching his eyes. Did anyone notice that he wasn't looking at the camera? And I said, "They put the TelePrompTer down on the ground." And somebody who was with me said, "What are you talking about?" And I said, that TelePrompTer is not a regular TelePrompTer because he's not looking at the camera. I believe -- and this is -- I put it on pause for a second and looked at his eyes. He wasn't even looking at the camera. And I said, I believe this is to combat -- and I don't know this part. I don't know if this is to combat the fact that he keeps looking off to the side and never at the camera. You know, when he's giving these speeches lately, have you ever noticed he never looks at you. He looks to the left, then he looks to the right, then he looks to the left, then he looks to the right. He's never looking at you. That's the problem. Because he needs to look me in the eye. Well, last night this was my conjecture that they were trying to overcome that and get him to look right at a camera. There are cameras that are built with the TelePrompTer on the lens. He didn't use that. We found out after the speech that he used this giant flat screen television just under the camera. It bothers me that this man doesn't -- this man is always on prompter. I mean, can you imagine if any other president -- if George W. Bush was always on TelePrompTer, can you imagine what people would have said? Have you ever heard a president compared to first JFK, then FDR, then Lincoln? Have you ever heard of any president that just went through all of them? I mean, the only thing he hasn't been compared to is, well, Tyler, he wasn't been compared to Taft yet. My theory on that is because we don't know who he is, because he may not know who he is, or he knows who he is but every time he reveals a little bit of that, nobody wants him to say that. I don't know what the answer is but we don't know who he really, truly is, and that bothers me. Imagine -- I mean, have you ever heard any other president do that? They're only comparing him to others because they're trying to say, "Yeah, well, he's kind of like that guy." Well, no, I don't want to know who he's kind of like. I want to know who he is. How do you get to a man's -- I don't know. Just bothers. There's something wrong. There's something wrong, something wrong. Yeah?

STU: On the TelePrompTer thing, though, is there some degree of -- because I think it's -- I like it and it's a funny story to me because this guy was sold to us as so much smarter than everyone else.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And, you know, but there's, to some degree is there a tendency to overreact on that because every speech is written for these people.

GLENN: Look --

STU: They are all quoting words of other people. They are all reading speeches. Now, it's not to the degree of Obama.

GLENN: Yeah. I am totally fine with him -- like at the beginning of this speech, this press conference last night, I'm totally fine with him having a TelePrompTer. I really am. When he has an address to the nation, I have no problem. He's doing a state of the union, he's doing an oval office, he's doing the beginning of a press conference, I have no problem. But I never see this man off of a TelePrompTer unless he's taking a direct question from the stars and stripes. I mean, no offense to the stars and stripes. I've gotten several stories from the stars and stripes. Nothing wrong with the stars and stripes, but can you imagine if George W. Bush avoided taking questions from the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the New York Times and asked questions of a blog and the stars and stripes? Hello? At the same time he's saying how important newspapers are, at the same time we can't lose this critical link to newspapers, he goes to the Politico.com. He's proving the opposite point, which he's right on, but he's proving the opposite point.

Which is he? Is it the land of new media or are newspapers vital to a country's existence? Which one is it? I don't know because the TelePrompTer keeps telling him what to say. So don't get me wrong. I have no problem being on TelePrompTer. I mean, all of the words that I say on television, all of them I've written. So -- and like last night the monologue at the beginning, part of it was in TelePrompTer, part of it wasn't and I said you know what, when I got on, you know what, just cut all that stuff out because I'd just rather say it off the top of my head. I've written the words. But I want to make sure -- because I'm so riddled with ADD, I want to make sure that it's all there. There are other times I can just say, turn that thing off; I don't want it. And it's not because I'm worried about anything. I do three hours of national broadcast every day without a single TelePrompTer. So I'm not afraid of it. I just want to make sure it's right. And the president has to make sure it's right. But not in every scenario, not in every case.

I swear, why doesn't he just -- he should have like a belt around him with, like, little bars that come off of his hips with TelePrompTers so he can just walk around. He can be in the kitchen: Well, I'd like a cheese sandwich, please. And then look to the other TelePrompTer: And a glass of milk because you're just like the average American.

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."
