Glenn not radical enough?

GLENN: Line 4 with Steve in Mesa. Hello, Steve.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Good. Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, you inspired me to start learning my history and I started with the Constitution and I'm reading the book The Politically incorrect Guide to the Constitution. And the one thing that jumped out at me when I read this is that there was a debate by our founders on whether to have a national government which is top down, you know, based on the British model or a bottom up version of the government called a federal government where the states gave the rights, you know, bottom up to the federal government. We have and they agreed to have a federal government where the states retained the rights and gave the federal government very limited rights. In fact, the Bill of Rights was first rejected by the founders because they said the federal government has no power anyway. You know, we wrote out a couple of detailed powers that the federal government has. So you don't need a Bill of Rights. It's limited in the first place. But thankfully they said, no, no, that's not good enough. The cleanest form of government is the government that is closest to the people. That's what the founders wanted. So the local government, the state government was where all the power was because the people could control it. At the federal level you no longer can control the power because it's not close to the people, hence we have morphed into a national government. Where I say, Glenn, you are not radical enough because we're not finding the next president that will give the power out of Washington back to the states. Everybody we're talking about still wants to take control of the federal government or the national government I should say now and say what to do.

GLENN: Okay. Steve, hang on just a second. America, the reason why I took Steve's call is because I knew, my phone screener just up above here says, Glenn, you're not radical enough. So I knew he was going to get to that point. But Steve, did you know this about the federal government, how long ago? When did you start learning this?

CALLER: Couple of days ago?

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: I mean, I had a general idea, but

GLENN: Steve, did you think that I was radical enough two days ago?

CALLER: Yeah, I did.

GLENN: Yeah, okay. But now that you're learning history, you are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute! We are way behind!

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Steve, what you do with your history, what you do with the things that you, you know, that you learn is up to you because there shouldn't be a giant control. I'm not a leader. I'm not a guy who's out here saying, hey, vote for me or anything like that. I'm a guy who is just like you. I just happened to start earlier than two weeks ago. I'm discovering a lot of this stuff for the first time as well. And what I learned last year, what I really came when I figured it out and I knew what was happening in Washington, that's when I knew you'll never beat this. If you try to beat it through politicians and through parties. You will only beat this if you educate the American people. Because then these things become self evident. We have to restore, restore. Well, how do you restore something? I want to explain that at the top of next hour because up on one of the windows in my office is a whole thing that I wrote, when was it, in June, July? I wrote this whole thing out. I came in one day and I wanted to be able to see it all the time and I don't have a blackboard in my office. I just have windows, and there's a lot of writing on my windows. And so I took an erasable marker and I started writing down restoration. It's what led me to say we must do 8/28. And I want to share that with you at the top of the hour because you will see how simple it becomes and how everybody else is going to take you right down the same path that we keep going over and over again and nothing will change. There must be a fundamental restoration to avoid a fundamental transformation.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
