GLENN: Harry Reid has said now that the GOP has lost sanity or their principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Okay. We are the only country in the world that has anchor babies and do you know why we have anchor babies? We have anchor babies because the Democrats in Reconstruction tried to say, "Oh, well, you can free the slaves, but they're not citizens. So when they have a baby, the baby's got to go back to Africa." Really, Democrats? That's that was as good as you had? That's what it was. That's why we had anchor babies. We had to put that into the Constitution so you couldn't claim that they weren't citizens. Well, now, look what it's turned into. There was no Sunset on that. Oh, wow, kind of almost like now the PATRIOT Act. It's going to turn out to be really something very, very good. So he says they lost sanity or principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship. Unfortunately for Harry Reid, there's something called an audio vault.

REID: If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that.

PAT: No.

REID: Right?

PAT: Right.

REID: Guess again.

PAT: Uh oh.

REID: If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with U.S. citizenship.

PAT: Shocking, Harry.

REID: And guarantee of full access to all public and social services this society provides. And that's a lot of services.

PAT: Yes, it is.

REID: Is it any wonder that 2/3 of the babies born at taxpayer expense, country, county run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers.

PAT: That was Harry Reid in 1993.

GLENN: Now, hang on just a second. Could you play just the beginning of that again?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just play the beginning of that.

REID: If making it illegal

GLENN: Stop for a second. Because he said recently that GOP has lost its sanity or its principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship.

REID: If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant. No sane country would do that.

GLENN: Okay, stop.

REID: Right?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. So no sane country would offer citizenship as a birthright.

PAT: And a reward for illegal aliens.

GLENN: No sane country would do that.

PAT: And yet now you're insane

GLENN: If you want to question it.

PAT: Yeah. Huh.

GLENN: Wouldn't it be nice if people like Harry Reid had principles?

PAT: It would. It would.

GLENN: You know, I say this, I say this as a member of his same faith, but he said, you know, he doesn't understand how people can be, you know, GOP if they're what did he say exactly?

PAT: If they're Hispanic I think was the

GLENN: Yeah, if they're Hispanic, he doesn't know how they can be a member of the

REID: I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay? Do I need to say more?

PAT: No, Harry, I think that's dumb enough.

GLENN: Harry, I would love to have a conversation with you because I don't know how you understand the principles of our particular faith and you are, you are doing the things that you do. Not all of them. I mean, look, I know a lot of people that I disagree with in my faith. I vehemently disagree with a lot of people in my faith on political stuff. But some of the stuff, I don't understand it. And I would love to have a conversation with him and figure out, how do you make that work.

PAT: Well, he's obviously drifted into extremism like I mean, he was against birthright citizenship in 1993. He thought it was insane.

GLENN: How did he do that?

PAT: Now all of a sudden, he is so much for it that he wants to investigate the people or he wants to disparage the people who are calling for a hearing to fix the situation. I mean, how does that even happen?

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know.

PAT: It's bizarre.

GLENN: Is he for

PAT: Bizarre.

GLENN: He was also, helped steamroll the healthcare which included abortion, and he knew it. Any sane person knew it. How do you do that? And I know he's a you know, he's a I don't question his I don't question his salvation or anything like that. I just don't know how people make those connections in their heads if you're really truly a devout member of any faith and your faith is strong against abortion, et cetera, et cetera. I don't know how he does that. Now, again I'm not questioning. I just, I would love to hear the explanation. Because people like me, I'm disparaged because I'm of the same faith as Harry Reid. And yet he gets a pass. Why? Because he's passing all the things that I happen to be against that are faith based, and I don't get it. I don't get it.

STU: It has nothing it's all about politics.

GLENN: Yeah, and I would love to hear and I mean this as an honest question. I would love to hear his explanations for those in a theological sort of way. How do you make that leap in your head

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: to be where you're at if you indeed are a practicing member of the faith. I don't understand it.

STU: And all indications are that he is.

GLENN: Oh, no, no. I know he is.

PAT: Oh, he is.

GLENN: I know he is.

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.
