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.

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.
