You're Being Set Up, America

Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

If you've been a long time viewer of this show and listener of my radio show, then you remember a time when the show was based in comedy. We looked at the news of the day and tried to get a point across in the funniest way possible. Today is a different story. The show is now about as funny as smallpox.

Recently, I got all kinds of heat for telling Forbes magazine that my company is an entertainment company. But they only printed half the quote. The rest of the quote was about how I very much believe the republic is on fire, I just don't think the best way to solve it is with a cartoon dog carrying a fire hose.

Look, I want an easy life too. I want to go to movies. I don't want to think about all the things we have to think about. But we are not protecting the republic just for us — this is for our children.

This land — if you believe the Founders — was found through divine providence. Which means we're holding a place for His purposes.

We've talked on this program about faith, hope and charity. And I'm going to be frank with you, when we started it up I wasn't sure exactly why this was the direction we needed to go in. But — and here's something you won't hear on TV — I introduced that theme because I felt led in that direction by the Spirit. I'm not sure exactly where this is going to lead, but I want to bring you not only the news of the day, but what's coming next, without being divisive or perceived as divisive.

That's going to be a struggle. Look at how Time magazine's Joe Klein described me, Sarah Palin and then Rush, over the weekend:


JOE KLEIN, TIME COLUMNIST: I did a little bit of research just before this show — it's on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of "sedition" which is: Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck and, to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right next — right up close to being seditious...


JOHN HEILEMANN, NEW YORK MAGAZINE: And you know, Joe's right and I'll name another person, name Rush Limbaugh who uses this phrase — constantly talks about the Obama administration as a regime...


The napkin makes me think Joe should have spend more time researching. The only piece of "evidence" cited is that Rush used the word "regime." Well, maybe John Heilemann should have done a little napkin journalism and googling before he went on the air; it may have helped him find out that the term "regime" was used 6,500 times to refer to the Bush administration since January 20, 2001. The host he was talking to used the term to describe Bush. And Heilemann himself used "regime" to describe the Obama administration at least four times.

But how is it seditious to disagree with the president? How is it seditious to say that Democrats and Republicans spend too much money? What is seditious about telling people to get involved and know your candidates before you vote?

I love my country. I don't hate government. I hate what we have allowed the country to become. I don't hate Obama. I pray for him every night with my children. I just disagree with him and progressives a lot. They think the Constitution is a living, breathing document that needs to change with the times. I do not.

I take President Obama at his word that he wants to fundamentally transform the country. I'm just asking the question "into what?" and trying to get the real debate out in the open.

What's seditious about that?

I may be the most naive person in America, but I thought that if I proved this, others would tell the truth. I don't think anyone else is coming on board, but that's OK. Because you and millions others like you know it. But we have an honesty shortage in America.

Here's the truth: The president is surrounded by radicals who want to fundamentally transform the country. If they told you the truth, they'd admit (not in a negative way) that their agenda is radical. But they are playing this game that they need to convince America that somehow they are not the radical ones; you are.

Imagine the bravado needed to believe that you can convince Americans that they are the problem. It's like if someone broke into your house, holds you at knifepoint, police arrive and the bad guy says you broke in. We don't know what to say. How do people not see that?

Tea Party goers are actually peaceful, polite and friendly. They are your parents or your grandparents. Politico reported on a 23-year-old African-American who went to find out: "Obviously I have political disagreements, but I cannot lie. I cannot say that people have been anything but nice to me. They have been shaking my hand.... I will definitely walk away from this with a new understanding of the Tea Party."

Robert McCartney, a liberal Washington Post columnist, did the same thing and found out that: "Tea Party members are not seething, ready-to-explode racists" and that "none was clamoring for civil disobedience, much less armed revolt."

There are two examples of people willing to tell the truth that I disagree with politically. There needs to be a lot more who realize it. But the way things are going, we can't wait around for the rest to get it.

We are being shoved into a place we can't stand. I think there's a set up going. The idea is to convince you that you are a radical — out of the mainstream. And the administration — made up of former '60s radicals — is an American monument.

I want you to remember two phrases: "Don't confuse hate with the truth" and "not racist, not violent, just not silent anymore." Keep those in mind when you hear stories like this:

Over the weekend, Bill Clinton said this:


FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: A lot of the things that have been said, they — they create a climate in which people who are vulnerable to violence because they're disoriented, like Timothy McVeigh was, are more likely to act. And the only point I tried to make was that we ought to have a lot of political dissent, a lot of political argument. Nobody is right all the time. But we also have to take responsibility for the possible consequences of what we say. And we shouldn't demonize the government or its public employees or its elected officials. We can disagree with them. We can harshly criticize them. But when we turn them into an object of demonization, you know, you — you increase the number of threats.


You've got to be kidding me. Americans started this country with a distrust of government. Read George Washington's words. The Tea Party doesn't want to fire bullets; they just want to fire politicians.

This is an attempt to silence you.

Remember, in a crisis, 10 percent make the wrong decision; 80 percent wait for someone to tell them what to do; 10 percent lead the others to safety. You have to figure out what category you are in.

You may disagree with Tea Party goers, but they are not Timothy McVeigh. Timothy McVeigh was an American monster.

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.
