Glenn Beck: P.C. parents!

GLENN: One thing that we all have to promise ourselves is that we're going to now get involved and we're not going to take it anymore. We're not going to sit idly by and say, I'm not going to cause any trouble. We have to speak our mind. We have to stand up for what is right. We also have to change our own lives personally. We all have to say, I'm not going to tell on a lie to myself, to my family, to any business. I'm going to be honest in all of my business dealings. I'm going to pay my taxes fairly. I'm going to do I'm going to do all the things that will keep me on the right side of things, but then I am going to speak out and I'm not going to take it anymore. Pat's had this decision to make. He's just recently moved from Texas to the New York area where things are slightly different in the New York area than they are in Texas.

STU: Slightly.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Especially when it comes to raising kids and standards of what you do. For instance, competition.

PAT: Yeah. I've got my kids in baseball and they've been in baseball for a really long time and I went to a Little League meeting. This was about I don't know a month and a half ago. It was before the season started. The season is going on now, but before the season started, they had a parents meeting. The kids weren't invited and we just got together in this high school auditorium and get the baseball season and lay it all out. And I couldn't wait because, you know, it's been a while since we've been able to play baseball, between the move and getting settled here and it's just been a hassle. So, I was really psyched about it and here's our first baseball meeting and then they laid out the season. Now, keep in mind my son who's 12 plays in the highest level of Little League. He's in the majors division.

GLENN: So, he's an elitist.

PAT: He's an elitist.

GLENN: He's had opportunity others haven't had.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I understand that.

PAT: To some of the kids on the team, but that's kind of their mind set. When I got the call, I was a little I was a little perplexed pause they said, Now, your son wasn't here for tryouts. So, how would you describe his playing ability? And I told them and I said, Why? Isn't there a draft? Oh, no. There's no draft. We're just trying to make sure all the teams are as equal as possible. Okay. I just let that one slide.

Glenn: Uh huh. Well, you didn't know for sure.

PAT: I didn't know. I didn't know for sure. I just thought, well, they just want good competition. That's fine. So, I'm there in the auditorium. There's probably 150, 200 parents and he lays out the whole season and in the majors, in the highest division of Little League baseball, they're not going to keep track of standings for anybody's record during the course of the whole regular season. I think we play 16 games. They're not keeping track and they're going on and on and on. Nobody is saying anything. I'm looking around thinking, what?

GLENN: Am I alone? The answer is Yes.

PAT: So, then they finally get to the question and answer session and they any questions? I'm way up at the top and they call on me and I stand up and I said, Did I misunderstand? Are you saying there are no standings kept during the entire regular season in the majors division? Yes. Uh huh. Why? Like, well, I that's my question. Why?

GLENN: (Laughter.)

PAT: Why wouldn't you keep track?

GLENN: What did she say?

PAT: Her actual answer to me, one of the other officials stood up and said, Well, we want to make sure that at the end of the season, all of our teams are basically 500. Wait a minute. So, wait a minute. Your goal for everybody during the course of the year, for my son included, at the end of the year is total mediocrity? You want them all to be 500 on the season? That's your goal? Well, no. We don't put it like that.

GLENN: I know you don't put it that way.

PAT: I'm sure you don't, but that's what our striving for, complete and utter mediocrity. Well, that's what the playoffs are for. Well, whose the regular season for? What are you doing all year, by teaching them that competition is not important, that they shouldn't be striving for excellence, that they're not supposed to get better?

GLENN: Did you say all of this?

PAT: I said up to the point of, yeah, what's the rest of the regular season for. And then I'm looking around for help and I'm thinking, Okay, somebody's going to join me. Not one parent stood up and supported me on that. Not one. They're all okay with it. They're all, like, yeah, this is what we do here. What's your problem? What? Are you from Texas? Well, yes. In Texas, where we have lesion that keep track of the scores and the standings during tee ball games! Tee gall, five year olds. I walked by a tee ball you know, they have a separate little field in Texas, in Houston, for tee ball fields and I walk by the I walk by that field and the scoreboard, 32 29. I mean, they just they keep score and they keep track. It's the only place in the world that I know of that keeps track of tee ball.

GLENN: Here's the thing. When my daughters were playing tee ball, I had this conversation: Why, why are we going to tee ball? And my wife said, Well, so the kids can go play baseball. Uh huh. I don't know much about sports, but this doesn't resemble baseball at all.

PAT: You're exactly right.

GLENN: And she said, what are you talking about?

PAT: It's worthless.

GLENN: And I said, the first time, the first time I went, everybody gets a home run. In the tee ball, the way it was structured, everyone gets to home.

PAT: Uh huh, yeah. If you get thrown out at first, which is rare, but if you do, you can still stay on base.

GLENN: Yeah. And I said

STU: What?

Pat: Oh, yeah. You didn't know that. Oh, yeah, if you get thrown out at first, they leave you there because they don't want to hurt your feelings.

GLENN: I said, this is the most ridiculous well, it's teaching them how to play. Kids don't need to be taught how to play! Do you want to do this? Let's go outside and play! This is structured nonsense.

PAT: Yes

STU: Yes, but if you don't have tee ball for really small kids, they'll never hit the ball and the game will last forever. It's, like, you don't put a kid on a fast motorcycle. You put them on training wheels for a little while.

GLENN: I have no problem with the tee ball. I get that.

PAT: But go by the rules of the game. That was always my thing.

GLENN: Yeah. Somebody puts it you're playing you're a five year old, but you're playing against other five year olds.

PAT: Yes, yes.

Glenn: So, everybody's skill sucks. You know? If I'm going up to even I could get a home run every time if my skill level oh, no. I can't use that. Okay. If you're going in to play against the five year olds, then we balance the game maybe.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Because the five year olds are going to go, What are we doing?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: But there's no sense in any of this. I don't understand how we are we are teaching our children from the beginning that competition is bad.

PAT: Exactly right. And that's you know, it's somewhat understandable because you can make the case, well, they're five and you don't want to get them too excited about the competition right away, but these are 11 and 12 years old in the major division of the highest level of Little League and you're still giving them that nonsense?

GLENN: Hang on. I just want you to I just wanted you to know a couple of things. When I was at the first game of tee ball and I'm complaining that it was this is ridiculous, this is ridiculous, that's when a parent stood up and was, like, screaming at their five year old, hurry up. Don't drop the ball! And I heard this about three times and I finally looked at the guy and I said, Jack, the score's going to end tied. I don't know if you figured that one out yet. Relax. I mean, you know, there's something to be said for competition and then it's also there's a few of the parents that you're, like, relax.

Pat: Very true.

GLENN: And that's the balance. Everything is about balance. It really is. Are unions bad? No. Are companies bad? No. Are there bad unions? Yes. Bad companies? Yes. When do they usually go bad? When they've lost all balance, when they're just in it for themselves and that's it.

STU: But this is to typical about how we've decided as a society to handle these problems. Here is the central government, essentially, the league management, trying to legislate out bad parents. You can't do that by changing the score and removing that stuff. The people are still there.

GLENN: I know that you you need to start a you need to find some like minded parents.

PAT: I know. I know. I've been thinking about that.

GLENN: You need to write a letter in the editor in the paper and say, What's the deal? Don't use your real name. But what's the deal? Anybody want to contact me? This P. O. box. (Laughter.)

PAT: (Laughter.)

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

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.
