GLENN: You know, I've been talking to you and now we have the proof that it's why the phone doesn't ring on the set of the TV show. The I've been telling you that we are headed for a, worse than a nanny state. We are headed for some gigantic government and a global government that is just frightening. And people say, oh, Glenn Beck, he's a conspiracy theorist. No, no, let me not talk to you about the things that could happen. Let me show you the things that are happening in the U.K..

After Jenny Paton, a 40 year old mother of three in Poole, England, tried to enroll her daughter in the neighborhood school, the local education department began, the local education department, began spying on her to prove that she had applied under a false address. She hadn't. The investigation included an examination of Poole's telephone records and three weeks of secretly following and photographing her and her children—all without court approval. It is now perfectly legal under the regulation of Investigatory Powers Act which gives 474 local governments and 318 agencies in the U.K. the unilateral authority to conduct covert surveillance of anyone they choose. According to the country's chief surveillance commissioner the country's chief surveillance commissioner they do so about 10,000 times a year often for trivial offenses like failing to recycle. Usually the targets are unaware of snooping. Paton found it out only after officials showed her a report. By her account they said my privacy wasn't intruded because the surveillance was covert. Now, this is from Reason magazine and I you know, we all thought here, okay, it's Reason magazine, that's a libertarian, that's got, okay, all right, well, they are just no. This article was based on this article in the New York Times. Britain's wary of surveillance in minor cases. It talks about how they obtained her billing records and for more than three weeks in 2008 an officer from the pool education department followed her, her children, taking pictures of her children and, quote, the target vehicle. Local governments quoting the New York Times regularly use these surveillance powers which they self self authorize without oversight from judges or law enforcement officers to investigate malfeasance like illegally dumping industrial waste, loan sharking and falsely claiming welfare benefits. But they also use them to investigate noise pollution, people who don't clean up their dog's waste, local governments use them to catch people who are failing to recycle. People who put their trash out too early, people who sell fireworks without a license, people whose dogs bark too loudly or illegally operate taxicabs. America, this is the Fabian Society plan of the early 20th century happening in England. It is the Wilson plan that is happening now in America. The Fabian Society and the socialists and the communists have been ahead of us in England, but we are rapidly closing the gap. When you have Michael Bloomberg saying that he's putting camera and surveillance all over New York, a Republican saying he's going to put these surveillance cameras all over New York just like they have lo and behold in England, and he follows it with a statement, "We just can't have people believing that they can just go anywhere they want."

PAT: Michael Bloomberg's an independent, okay?

STU: Fact check, fact check.

PAT: Fact check, yes, another ballpark fact from Glenn Beck, Republican Michael Bloomberg.

STU: I mean, Republicans, you know, deserve a lot of crap but not that. He's left.

PAT: They can investigate you. They can surveil you for not recycling now? So tell me the green movement

GLENN: Putting your trash out, putting your trash out too early.

PAT: The green movement and this tell me they are not, tell me they are not connected.

GLENN: Van Jones, Van Jones was our green jobs czar. Do you want Van Jones or people like Van Jones being able to surveil you? What do you think they are going to use it for? Wake your neighbors up!

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"
