GLENN: Another way to sell our book, Arguing With Idiots. I was just showing it to the Insiders. I just got it. Comes out September 24th?

STU: 22nd.

GLENN: 22nd? My favorite part of the book is Page 301 to 325. The footnotes that we were just trying to figure, maybe they are 5, 6 font, maybe? They are just footnotes. I don't ever want to put you in a position to where you say, I got my facts from Glenn Beck. Oh, really? So you'll be able to say, no, I got my information from the New York Times, August 12th, 2005, Page 7. That's what I want you to be able to do and so this is really what ‑‑ this has taken us over a year to write and it is full color and it's very much like the inconvenient book except this one's on the Constitution. This one's on the Second Amendment. This one's on healthcare. This one is on the deficit. This one is on, should you buy a home or not, do you have a right to a home. All of the things that would stop small minds and big government, Arguing With Idiots. Because you are going to run ‑‑ you know what, you are going to run into your idiot friends and you are going to have conversations like when a friend comes up to you sand says...

PAT: Yeah, Mr. Beck, I guess you don't like healthcare reform for some unknown ‑‑ apparently you want the monopoly to continue, right? That's fine with you. You just continue with the monopoly.

GLENN: You must be talking about what HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius said last week:

SEBELIUS: Let people choose an option in the new marketplace, and it's good to have competition for the private insurers who will inherit a lot of new customers. And without competition costs could skyrocket. In a monopoly system it's not a great way to hold down costs.

GLENN: Right, right. So the government needs to get involved in order for true competition to happen. That's an interesting ‑‑ I've never heard that argument before.

PAT: Of course I'm not surprised. You are so ignorant and so ill informed, so stupid. How else can there be any cost‑cutting competition?

GLENN: Well, let's see. Right now Aetna competes with Blue Cross and Blue Shield, they both compete with Humana. Of course there's Cigna, United, Assurant. Since when does the government have to throw its hat in the ring in order to not be a monopoly? Is there a monopoly right now in the fast food industry?

PAT: Yes. Yes, there is, Mr. Beck. Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Sonic and all the rest, they continue to overcharge because there's no single‑feeder option.

GLENN: Wait a minute.

PAT: There's no single‑feeder option in fast food right now.

GLENN: I did not know.

PAT: Plus, plus, not everyone, not everyone has access to fast food. Minority areas, for instance, are wildly underrepresented when it comes to fast food.

GLENN: Didn't know that.

PAT: Do you know ‑‑ and I know you don't care.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Do you know that some 93 million people had no fast food meals at all last year alone?

GLENN: And is that a bad thing?

PAT: Not for you, Mr. Quarter Pounder with bacon grease lard and doughnut icing. No, I'm sure there's so much special sauce coarsing through your veins if you took the breathalyzer test, you'd have had a .08% blood content in your Big Mac stream.

GLENN: Okay, here's the deal. It's not a monopoly. There are thousands of businesses that compete for your food dollars. Mano means one.

PAT: Yeah, as in the number of chins your chins have. Is that, Mr. Beck, not one of those companies delivers that food for free, do they, Mr. Cream Cheese Cheeks?

GLENN: Look, the government was in the food industry. They had something called the Senate cafeteria. It failed. One cafeteria for just 100 senators and they somehow or another couldn't make that work.

PAT: Well, you know what? If it weren't for the Bush tax cuts for the only the wealthiest 0000000000001% of Americans, there would be more senators who could afford lunch in their own cafeteria.

GLENN: I don't even know what that has to do with absolutely anything on healthcare.

PAT: And what about the weapons of mass destruction? Where are those? Why aren't you talking about that?

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.
