GLENN: Well, when we were doing our homework, we came across a guy named McChesney. The free press. McChesney is a guy who says, and he has been at the White House, check the records, twice now for meetings. He is a guy who says that capitalism needs to be broken apart and taken apart, dismantled brick by brick. Well, the openly socialist, Marxist magazine Monthly Review just had a conference last month. Guess who spoke there. He was fine with communists and communism. He still has a burning hatred for the United States of America. The one, the only Jeremiah Wright returns to the scene.

REVEREND WRIGHT: This magazine unflinchingly has tackled the tough issues from McCarthyism to militarism, from the Chinese revolution through the Canadian revolution to the Cuban revolution, from the lies told by United States presidents to the lies told by the United States media. We celebrate tonight six decades of dedicated service.

GLENN: Dedicated service of a socialist Marxist magazine, Monthly Review. So the magazine covered the Cuban revolution, which he said nothing bad about or any other revolution he mentioned, but the U.S. and its media: Lies, nothing but lies. Now, maybe this doesn't mean anything. Maybe I'm just too sensitive. Maybe I just haven't gotten over the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, but it never was about Jeremiah Wright really. It was about Barack Obama sitting in a pew for 20 years; what does the man believe. Surely there was nothing else controversial that night just over a month ago with Jeremiah Wright.

REVEREND WRIGHT: You stayed up front. Your starting point is, quote, no nonsense Marxism, unquote. But you dispel all the negative images we have been programmed to conjure up with just the mention of that word "Socialism" or "Marxism."

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. You'd hate to, hate to do that. Thank goodness for somebody dispelling the awful stereotypes of Marxism, you know, that we have in this country. I mean, gee, look at the fruits of Marxism and socialism. Well, wait, before I get into that, let's hear some more about the splendor of Marxism and just how bad America really is.

REVEREND WRIGHT: Grateful for the opportunity to bring you a word of Thanksgiving from those who don't ordinarily get a hearing unless they go along with the program, sing in tune with whatever is the popular tune and stay in lockstep with the political pundits who tell us what is politically correct, what is permissible and what will be tolerated from a person of color in this land, the land of the greed and the home of the brave excuse me, the land of the greed and home of the slave. (Applause).

GLENN: The land of the greed and home of the slave. May I ask a serious question, and I'm not being flippant: Why? Why would you live here in America if this is the way you felt about America? Why? I mean, I would honestly like an answer to that question. There are socialist regimes out there, there are Marxist, communist governments where your ideals are being upheld, right? Why not go to Venezuela unless, unless you would like to see Venezuela come here? Unlike those communist countries, there is no wall around this country keeping anybody in. Have you noticed that there used to be something before the total collapse of their economy called an iron curtain around those? How about the area we referred to behind the Berlin wall? Thousands, maybe millions tried to escape the oppression, the misery wrought by Jeremiah Wright's precious Marxism. And if they were caught trying to escape, they were shot. Seriously, America, what has happened to us? This kind of rhetoric used to be reviled and now it is permeating the White House! These people hid in the shadows and rightly so in America. They represented everything that was abhorrent to Americans. But here is the man who married Barack Obama to the first lady Michele Obama, baptized their children. Here is the man that Obama listened to for 20 years over and over and over again, and it is not a problem?

REVEREND WRIGHT: For the people. My work with liberation theology, with Latin American theologians, with the Black Theology Project and what the Cuban Council of Churches taught me 30 years ago the importance of Marx and the Marxist analysis of the sociologies of the vulnerable and the oppressed who were trying desperately to break free of the political economies undergirded by this country that were choking them and cutting off any hope of a possible future where all of the people would benefit. My exposure to the FMLN in El Salvador, the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and my presence at the 15th Jamahiriya in Libya taught me what I have read in the pages of the Monthly Review which is as Joshua Stanton says, though we need not always agree with one another, we must do the work necessary to at least understand one another.

GLENN: Yes, we do. And see, that's why we don't force you to leave this country. We don't have erase opposing viewpoints like Venezuela does. It is not wrong to have these points of view. It's just puzzling. Marxism, where all the people would benefit, he says. Please, America, tell me you reject that thinking. Democrats, independents, for all that is holy, please. He claims that Marxism is a system, quoting, where all of the people would benefit. Where is that utopia, sir? Where is the Marxist model of success? Where is it? Where all of the people are thriving equally? We have tried to educate the young people in this country about the real fruits of Karl Marx's labor, death and oppression, from Lenin to Stalin to Chairman Mao to Pol Pot. They starved. They murdered millions of their own people. They stole liberty. They crushed freedom. In order to have one thing, not equality but control. They spied on their people. They denied free speech and the people's right to worship as they choose. This supposed reverend applauds this system and gave it over and over again every Sunday to the Obamas, and they sat and soak it in. And he is so unafraid to speak it out just last month again.

Ever since Jeremiah Wright has come into the limelight and complained about our militarism, is anyone under the impression that the communists were peaceful, that communists are an unarmed bunch of flower children? Ask the Czechs. Ask the Poles, the Hungarians about the tender mercies of the Soviet sweetness. You might want to check with Georgia, a former ally of ours, that are struggling with everything they've got! How about Latvia, the Ukraine, the Baltics, the Yugoslavs, all of Eastern Europe. And oh, let's not forget Afghanistan. And the South Koreans might have something to add to that as well as the South Vietnamese. Oh, no, I forgot. The Communist North politely invaded and wiped out the South. Nevermind. Jeremiah Wright tries to wrap Marxism up in a blanket of love and concern for the poor. The only concern he has for the poor is to make sure that everyone is equally poor, except for the ruling elite. What kind of twisted freakish perversion of the scriptures convinces people to believe that forced redistribution of other people's money is charitable? Giving is charitable! Taking is a commandment! Don't steal!

Look, here are a few of the things that we know. We know that Barack Obama was mentored by a communist, Frank Marshall Davis. We know that in his own words that he preferred the company of a Marxist professor in college and Marxist professors in college. We know that he thinks when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everyone. We know that that is one of the main tenets of Marxism. We know that he hired Van Jones, a revolutionary communist radical. We know that he hired Ron Bloom, a manufacturing czar that kind of agrees with Mao and believes that the free market system is nonsense. We know that he hired Anita Dunn and that Chairman Mao is one of the two people she turns to most. We know he hired Mark Lloyd, someone who believes our freedom of speech rights are exaggerated, quote/unquote, and that Hugo Chavez, the revolution of Venezuela was, quote, really incredible, end quote! We know that he appointed Carol Browner to the cabinet, a member of the International Socialist Organization. We know that he hired John Holdren who believes in redistribution of America's wealth and we know that this administration is eager to sign a climate change treaty in Copenhagen with the UN that will redistribute our wealth to third world nations. Now maybe, now maybe that I've done the math wrong, I forgot to carry the one. I don't know how many more pieces of evidence you need. Maybe, maybe it doesn't add up to anything. Maybe the laws of physics just don't apply to our savior and Lord in the White House Barack Obama. Maybe magic fairies will sprinkle social justice down on all of us likes pixie dust and it will be a wonderful, wonderful world where there will be no bloodshed and all of the animals will talk like they did in Disney movies. Maybe... I don't see it happening. But there is one thing I do know. We must ask the one question. We must focus on this one question: Does it matter. Does it matter that their anticapitalist, socialist, Marxist radicals in the executive branch of the United States government. We need to decide. Does it matter? For two years people looked at the Jeremiah Wright story: "Oh, he's just a crazy preacher." No, he is a Marxist, now an admitted Marxist, now with the audio from a month ago extolling the virtues of a socialist revolutionary magazine who has ties to the administration. I bring this up because I don't expect a single person to change their mind on Jeremiah Wright and think now, oh, he matters. It is jaw droppingly shocking to me every day that there are those among us that just cannot see, they can't see the perfect storm that is about to unleash its fury on us. There are those that are going to tell you that it's all blue sky and sunshine. I tell you, there's a lot of work to be done. I tell you that we are going to make it. But I don't want you to doubt for a second that the hammering you have to do and the hammering that you will take in the coming months. I don't want you to lose sight that all of that is right. It is time to build an ark because the rain is coming.

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.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
