GLENN: Arguing With Idiots. You know, I really got to learn the name of this damn book.

PAT: That would be good.

STU: Arguing With Idiots.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? Once you see the cover of this book, you don't have to we are about the name. Somebody said to me ‑‑ they actually didn't say to me. They said to one of the ‑‑ the book editor said that he was talking to somebody and they were like, oh, my gosh! They are going to rip this cover apart! Look at ‑‑ why would he do that? Why would Glenn pose like that? That will be ‑‑ they will show that cover on every TV station and magazine and everything.

PAT: Oh, no.

GLENN: Over and over again.

PAT: Don't do that, please!

GLENN: I hate that. I hate that.

PAT: Bad to see it on ‑‑

GLENN: You really don't even have to worry about the names. You really don't even have to worry about the names. Arguing With Idiots, new book, comes out September 22nd. Arm you with the facts. In fact, there are 25 pages of fine print footnotes at the end of the book because I learned from the last book we did that, you know, your kids will take this and they will take these facts, or you will be quoting. There's so many facts there. You are going to be quoting them to your friends, and the last thing you want to do is when they say, "Where did you get that fact?" Say "Glenn Beck." So we gave you all the footnotes so we can do your own research so you can quote the New York Times.

All right. This is going to enable you to win the arguments that you find yourself in inevitably when your idiot friend says something like...

PAT: Yeah, Mr. Beck, can you hear me?

GLENN: You are sitting right next to me. Yes, I can hear you. Of course I can.

PAT: Well, I was listening to your show. Hello?

GLENN: Yes, you're there.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Go ahead. You're in the room. I don't know if you ‑‑

PAT: Oh. Well, yeah, okay. Well, anyway.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I'm detecting that, you know, you are doing your usual nasty sarcastic blowhard routine today; am I right?

GLENN: No, no. I mean, what are you talking about specifically?

PAT: Well, as if you didn't know. Barack Obama's latest genius move when you are not even talking about.

GLENN: What is that?

PAT: Ben Bernanke. He's done such a wonderful job overseeing and fixing the worst economy since the Black Plague of the early 15th century. He is continuing now as Federal Reserve chairman. I've noticed you've conveniently not talked about this brilliant move on the part of the president.

GLENN: Yeah, are you saying that Ben Bernanke's fixed this economy?

PAT: Oh, as if you didn't know that. Are you this stupid? Are you that blind? Is there a panful of pork chops blocking your view this morning?

GLENN: I mean, is this really necessary? I mean, tell me exactly how Ben Bernanke has fixed the economy.

PAT: All right. Let me talk super slowly so you can understand.

GLENN: Is this Bill Maher?

PAT: We have an incredibly low unemployment rate of 9 1/2% or so right now.

GLENN: I can't wait until some idiot makes this one. Really? 9.5%, that's a low unemployment rate, huh?

PAT: You know it is, Mr. Beck. Don't pretend. Had Ben Bernanke not acted in the masterful way he did, you know this as well as I do, we would have lost about 294 1/2 million jobs. Our unemployment rate would be well over 39% right now.

GLENN: Right, right.

PAT: If you do the math.

GLENN: Why are we even talking about unemployment? What does a Fed chair have to do with those numbers? How about this one? You know, he's responsible for telling the truth. He lied about not monetizing our debt to congress and nobody's really talked about that. How about the fact that the Fed has spent and lost track of $9 trillion since just last fall? $9 trillion. Is that a job well done?

PAT: Look, if filthy rich cats, fat cats like you would just pay your fair share, we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.

GLENN: See, this is when you'll say, oh, I love that he brought up the fair share thing. As you can see, spelled out right on the top of Page 191 of the new book Arguing With Idiots, the top 1% of wage earners in this country pay 40% of the total tax burden.

PAT: Oh, boohoo, and they have, what, like 99% of the wealth.

GLENN: We can find that on Page 191. Try 18% of the wealth.

PAT: Oh, okay. Let me go to Page 38 billion 329 million of I Hate the Hateful Hate Monger Hater Glenn Beck! He's a big fat lying liar who lies, tub of fat lying dude. Fat, lying...

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."
