GLENN: So I want to talk a little bit today about the difference between equal justice and social justice. Equal justice is really quite easy to define. If I haven't paid my taxes, I get fined and then I have to pay that fine and I can't use campaign finances to do it. If Charlie Rangel, under equal justice, if Charlie Rangel doesn't pay his taxes, he gets fined and he can then pay that fine but not by using campaign finances. Under social justice I get fined, I have to pay my taxes, I have to pay the fine, and I can't do I can't use campaign finances. Under social justice Charlie Rangel can because he's too important, he's had a tough childhood, he's somehow one way or another different than me. That's social justice.

Let's start with equal justice. If I am an illegal alien and I'm stopped by a cop, if I'm here illegally, I pay the fine, go to court; I'm sent home. Under equal justice if somebody else, Canadian, Egyptian, Chinese, Mexican is stopped by the police and they are here illegally, they are get to take it, pay the fine, go see a court and then are sent home. Under social justice, I would be sent home but somebody, because they're somehow or another different than me, they're not. That's the difference between social justice and equal justice.

PAT: One of those is in the Constitution...

GLENN: One of those is not.

PAT: Is not.

GLENN: Guess which one. This is why we have to fight against social justice as defined by those in the Barack Obama administration and those progressives. It is everywhere. The DOJ, attorney general Holder Holder, right? Attorney general Holder has come out last week and said social justice is the key. I'm sorry. Help me out with that. Equal justice is what our founders fought for and what Abraham Lincoln fought for. Arizona, be on guard. I guarantee your law is going to now be equated to a Jim Crow law. I guarantee it. It has not been yet, but if it hasn't happened by the end of the week, I will be stunned. This is going to be about social justice, not equal justice.

Let me be clear, to quote Barack Obama, on where I stand and I believe America stands on illegal immigration. If I were a Mexican, if I were a Canadian, I wouldn't be coming across the border because Canada's about to have it sweeter than we are. If I were a father of four, as I am, and I was in Mexico and I knew that the United States didn't enforce their laws and I could get free medical care, I could get a job, I could even pay taxes on that job but I could work in relative safety, I would probably come across the border because America doesn't want to enforce its own laws. They think it's a joke, too. If I could come across the border and have a chance of being made a citizen because I made it across the border with my family, I would probably come across the border. Because my country, Mexico, is melting down. My country, Mexico, is ruled by drug lords. My country, Mexico, has been doing the social justice and progressive, damn near communist thing for a long time. It's a socialist state, and most socialist states, if not all socialist states, almost always end up in massive corruption. The ones that don't end up in massive corruption are those states that have a very small government with limited power. Why bribe somebody when they don't have the power to do anything.

With that being said, it wouldn't excuse me from being here. I broke the law. I rolled the dice. No matter what my situation was, I'm sorry. That's no excuse. If we don't pay people from Cuba unless they touch the soil, why would we do Mexico? If I'm an employer well, let me just make it a regular person. If I'm in San Diego and I'm trying to get somebody to mow my lawn, I've got to believe it's a little like being here in New York and trying to get somebody to mow my lawn. I can't get a neighbor kid. I've tried. You can't get somebody like me when I was growing up, I mowed the neighbors' lawns. I earned my money by doing that. There are so many jobs here that Americans feel that they are just above that you can't get anybody to do it. So now you have a choice. Do you mow the lawn? Okay, if you have to, yes. What if you're a business and you can't get anybody to dry the dishes, collect the dishes? What do you do?

See, there are a lot of, there are a lot of issues. I don't know. Did we have the tooth fairy just show up? What was that?

PAT: Our magic muffins are done.

GLENN: I don't know what that sound was. That wasn't your computer, was it?

PAT: No, it wasn't.

GLENN: I've never heard that sound before.

PAT: That's weird.

GLENN: Can we check to see if somebody put a tooth fairy bomb in here or something? Never heard that sound.

We have many problems, and it does need to be comprehensive, but I'm going to give you a problem next that I think can be solved. I think we have a way to solve illegal immigration but not with people who are looking for social justice. But I don't think anybody crawls across our border for social justice. They crawl across our border for equal justice. You see, they come from a country where if you have juice, if you have a good story or if you have money and power, you can get justice. I don't think that's what they're looking for. I think they are looking for equal justice.

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.
