Glenn reads the words of Lincoln

GLENN: I just want to, I want to read Lincoln's second inaugural address. And if you read his first inaugural address, he says, you know, that he doesn't feel he has the right or the ability, he may even say desire to stop slavery. That's not his deal. What his deal is, is to preserve the union. But if you read his second inaugural address, he's changed. Well, one of the changes that most people don't know is Gettysburg changed him. Gettysburg changed him. Gettysburg forced him to his knees. Abe Lincoln was baptized before the second inaugural address. Abe Lincoln found God. Why? Because he had nothing left.

He talks in this, and I'm going to paraphrase and skip around, but I would ask that you would read this. He says, while the inaugural address was being delivered from this place the last time, devoted altogether to saving the union without war, urgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it. Seeking to dissolve the union and divide the effects by negotiation. Some would rather have war than let the nation survive and others would accept war rather than let it perish. And the war came. He talks about slaves and how they were just nothing more than a powerful interest to some. All knew that this interest was the cause of war. Do you see the parallels? It's the powerful interest to strengthen and to perpetuate and extend the interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the union even by war while the government claimed no right, no more than just to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. That goes back to his first inaugural address. I'm not trying to stop slavery, but we've got to hold the union together, and you can't expand it because that is the founders knew. The founder knew that they could just slowly turn off the valves. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph and, as a result, less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God and each invokes his aid against the other. It may seem strange that any man should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of another man's faces. It must listen to that, it must seem strange that any man should dare ask a just God as assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of another man's face. But let us not judge that we may not be judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The almighty has his own purposes. Woe unto the world because of offenses, for it must needs be that offenses come. But woe to the man by whom the offense cometh. If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which the providence of God must needs come but which having continued through his appointed time, He now wills to remove and that He gives to both North and South that terrible war as the woe do to them by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers and a living God always ascribe to him? Fondly we do hope, fervently we do pray that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all of the wealth piled by the bondsmen's 250 years of unrequited toil shall be sunk and until every drop of blood drawn with the last shall be paid with another drawn with the sword, as was said 3,000 years ago, still it must be said the judgment of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

Do you hear his words? Do you hear his words? I stood in the Lincoln Memorial feeling as about as small as a man feels standing next to that gigantic statue of a man. I have no idea yet what I'm going to say on 8/28 and no one will long remember what I say, but to paraphrase him, what we do, what we do, there's nothing more to be said than what has already been said. If God wills that all of our wealth piled up is sunk, if every drop of blood that we have spilled is paid for by all the drops of blood drawn by a sword to purify His purpose, His land, His freedom, His rights, for His purpose, He will do it. But I tell you with everything in me that's not what the Lord wants to do. The Lord will only do it you only spank your children when there's nothing else left to do. And if you are like me, if I spank my children, I weep afterwards. The Lord will spank us in his own way, and he will weep as he does it. Why? Because he warns you, just like you warn your children, "Don't do that, please don't do that, please don't do that. I will have to spank you if you do that. Please don't make me do that." He is saying that to us now. He is saying it to us now.

I said to my staff three years ago, I said, when you start to hear me speak plainly about God, you will know that trouble is around the corner. I am speaking as plainly you know how I say there are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. There are not things that I am not telling you. There are not things that I believe that I am not saying. When I say Saturday and 8/28 is a turning point, it will be but not because of anything that I have to say. But because of what you take from it and do. I will tell you that the stories are already being written. The people involved that are known to be involved, like David Barton. David Barton is one of the best men I know. Someday I would hope to be like David Barton, one of the best men I know. I found out this morning he's being boycotted, he's being smeared even more. And David would never tell me these things. He knew yesterday when we met, and he never told me these things. People are coming under tremendous pressure and fire just to stand. The question is, will you stand? And if you don't have the courage to stand, will you listen? Will you listen? Not to me but to him. Will you listen and obey?

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

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."
