GLENN: Let me give you the organ of the Obama administration, the New York Times by Laurie Goodstein. She says, "Last week the conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck called on Christians to leave their churches if they hear preaching about social or economic justice, saying they are code words for communism and Naziism." Well, yeah, the communists and the Nazis, and I presented that evidence last night on the TV show. It's pretty hard when I take their own words and play it coming out of their own mouth and then show their own magazines, their own newspapers using those, that language for this exact purpose, for Naziism and communism, progressivism in America. But why get down to the facts.

"This week the remarks prompted outrage from several Christian bloggers." Now, let me ask you a question. The New York Times says they're above all, they the news that's fit to print. They found this to be a, how many paragraph? One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve paragraph story from several, quote, Christian bloggers. Oh.

PAT: Unnamed?

GLENN: No, no, they've named one.

PAT: Oh, they have named them?

GLENN: Yes. The Reverend Jim Wallis.

PAT: Oh, that Christian blogger. And by the way, did they mention that he's an advisor, a spiritual advisor to the president of the United States, Barack Obama?

GLENN: No, they haven't mentioned that.

PAT: They haven't mentioned that?

GLENN: No, they don't mention that here.

PAT: He's a disinterested party? He's just a Christian.

STU: Random Christian typist, okay.

GLENN: Who leads the liberal Christian antipoverty group.

PAT: Oh, is that what it is?

GLENN: It's a Christian antipoverty group.

PAT: Oh, okay.

STU: At least they said liberal. That's more than they normally do.

GLENN: Right. He called on Christians to leave Glenn Beck. That sounds like a boycott. I wonder if one will follow.

STU: Wait, wait. An advisor to the president being tied to a boycott? That doesn't sound possible.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

STU: It doesn't sound possible.

GLENN: Wait. One who studied Marxism?

STU: No, it doesn't seem. I won't listen to it.

GLENN: Okay. So "what he has said attacks the very heart of Christian faith. Christians should no longer watch his show," Mr. Wallis wrote on his blog. His name of his blog? God's Politics.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Now, I wasn't aware that God had politics. I would like to again join all of the liberals in suggesting we have a separation of church and state, that maybe there's a problem when your preacher stands up and starts telling you who to vote for, how to vote, and what the government should look like.

Now, I know there are churches that do that. I don't attend them. I don't like them. You can do that if you want, but if you want to make sure that God's politics aren't America's politics, you know, that would probably be a good thing to check into those words of those churches. Because I don't think God has politics. I think he has the truth.

"His show should be in the same category as Howard Stern." That sounds like Saul Alinsky.

STU: Successful? Is that what he's trying to say?

GLENN: "In attacking churches that espouse social justice," the Times writes, "Mr. Beck is taking on most mainline protestant, Roman Catholic, black and Hispanic congregations in the country." Not I wonder if, I wonder if we're going to get the churches like Jeremiah Wright's now to say that I'm a racist. I mean, it's not hard for Jeremiah Wright to call people racist and then, of course, there would be a campaign against my sponsors because I'm against a race I'm again a racist because I'm antipoverty, I'm antipoor.

PAT: No, because yeah, let's get that position straight because you are pro poverty, right?

GLENN: I am pro poverty, antipoor.

PAT: Antipoor.

STU: What is your decision making process then when you're doing this tour and the main three parts of it are faith, hope and charity?

GLENN: Hope and charity? I know.

STU: Why would you include faith and charity?

GLENN: I have no idea.

STU: I don't understand it, weird.

GLENN: No idea. "Mr. Beck said on his radio show March 2nd, I beg you look for the word social justice or economic justice on your church website. If you can find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice are code words." Quoting me. Am I advising people to leave their church? Yes, if I'm going, if I'm going to Jeremiah Wright's church, he said, referring to President Obama's former pastor in Chicago. If you have a priest that is pushing social justice, go find another parish. Notice, notice, leave your parish, not your church.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Go find another parish. Go alert your bishop.

STU: Do you have a are there dot dot dots that you are skipping over here?

GLENN: No, uh huh.

STU: Because I'm looking at our transcript and, you know, maybe we transcribed it wrong, but you you said social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, the idea hang on, Stu is saying that I'm advising people to leave their church? Yes! If I'm going to Jeremiah Wright's church. In other words, when you said something, I asked you in your ear to clarify it.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Which you did immediately afterwards by saying you referred to Jeremiah right's type church, a Black Liberation Theology or Marxism or church that's turned into a political arm.

GLENN: Yeah. Religion scholars say the term social justice now listen. This is a defense if you know history, this is their defense? Religious scholars say the term social justice was coined in the 1800s, codified by successive popes and adopted widely by protestant churches in the 1900s.

PAT: After the progressive movement had kicked in. Jeez.

GLENN: For the love of Pete. Marx started in 19 1848. All of this stuff started percolating, all of Nietzsche comes along, everything, it's redistribution of wealth. I've told you this, the progressive movement started with people like Woodrow Wilson whose father was a preacher! They perverted Christianity! "The concept is that Christians should not merely give to the poor but also work to correct unjust conditions that keep people poor." Yes! You're exactly right. We should as Christians do that. But then there's that added little step of having the government do it, not you. "Many Christians consider it a reoccurring theme in scripture. Mr. Beck himself is a convert to Mormonism, a faith that identifies itself as part of the Christian family but nevertheless rejected by many Christians. Philip Barlow, Arrington professor of Mormon history and culture at Utah State University said one way to read the book of Mormon is a fast track on social justice." Yes, that is one way to read it.

PAT: I've never heard it described that way.

GLENN: A lot of latter day saints would think that Beck was asking them to leave their own church." Yeah, sure, uh huh. Mr. Barlow said that "Just this year the church's highest authority, the quorum of the twelve apostles, issued a new handbook of instructions." I love this. "Which they revise the church three fold mission and added a fourth mission statement: Care for the poor."

PAT: People! People! Individuals!

GLENN: That's you.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: Caring for the poor.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: I have no problem. Faith, hope and charity. Yes! That's what Jesus said! But when Jesus came down, you know what it who were the Pharisees? Who were the Pharisees?

PAT: A group of intellectuals?

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. The intellectual elite of the time?

PAT: Uh huh, uh huh.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Did they have any power?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Did they? Did they have any power in government?

PAT: Uh huh. Yeah.

GLENN: Did they have any power in the church at the time?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: That's weird!

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So they were the elite, intellectual elites, they were the political elites of their time and they were the religious elites of their time, and they were all the same thing?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: All three of those in one?

PAT: Weird, huh?

GLENN: It's weird.

PAT: Weird.

GLENN: And so what did Jesus say? Get away from the Pharisees! Because they had perverted the mission of Christ into what? Political power. Hello!

STU: (Laughing). Yeah, what you I mean, the easiest way to boil down what you're talking about is don't let your church turn into a political arm.

GLENN: Yes!

STU: That's really controversial.

GLENN: Your church is there and that's why I said I don't care what church you go to. I don't care. As long as that church is telling you and helping you be a better person, be more honorable, be more honest, be more giving. But once that church starts to preach social and economic justice, especially through the structure of a giant government, well, now that's something totally different. Now, now you are talking about a church that is getting involved in government itself. We don't do that. We don't do that.

STU: Yeah. I mean, and the easiest way to understand what you were talking about is if you were talking about the poor, your own church obviously, they pointed out there that they do care about caring for the poor. So were you advising people to leave your own church? Were you advising your other parishioners to walk out of your church because you can't take it? Did you leave your church this week, Glenn?

GLENN: No, I didn't.

STU: Did you leave it?

GLENN: No, I didn't.

STU: Why not? Clearly the New York Times says you were calling for yourself to leave your own church.

GLENN: Because everyone, everyone can follow the dictates spirit and worship any way that they want. The idea is separation of church and state when it comes to, it is not a political arm. The your churches are not political arms. Now, that doesn't mean you don't stand up for what you believe in, especially if it is an attack on what you believe. You stand up for what you believe. If you think that you can get in I know we have to wrap it up. If you think you can get into bed with these socialist, Marxist, social justice and economic justice people and retain your right to worship in the way the spirit dictates to you, you're out of your mind. Because they'll be your friend today but they are going to turn on you and rip your heart of your church out.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
