Glenn Beck: Will you be a burden or a shelter?


GLENN:

This is one of those things I ask you to go with me on but I want to talk to you

about a real change of course and a real direction. I believe that I have hit my

maximum footprint. We have about 30 million people that listen and watch and

read every single month. We have 30 million people within the Glenn Beck

footprint. That's one tenth of the American population. I have been telling you

that these things were coming. I have been ringing the bell as hard as I can. I

have pledged my life, my fortune and my sacred honor over the last five years,

and you have, too. And you have been here. And last hour I did an opening

monologue and tonight we'll show you the video. It is, it's stunning. It's

stunning what happened just over the weekend, the things that we have said were

coming are now here. And I have been thinking lately about, you know, where do I

go from here. And where I go from here is grassroots. Where I go from here is,

quite honestly, away from New York City. Where I go from here is into real life.

I am the answers don't lie in New York City, they don't lie in Chicago, they are

not in Washington, D.C. They are at your home and your town hall and your

community. They life within your own life. And that's where our problems are and

that's where the solutions are. So I want to start with something that you

people say what does the average person do, Glenn? What do I do? Because I don't

have a lot of money and et cetera, et cetera. And I've told you food storage. I

can't tell you, it may sound ridiculous to you but I can't tell you how

important it is. And you will hear let me tell you something. You will hear my

words ring in your head. Do not be the person that said, oh, jeez, I wish I

would have listened to him. Get food storage. Now, if you don't know how to do

that I told my wife last night, do you know who bought up just tons of land in

Brazil for sugar? George Soros. Isn't that weird? I told my wife last night, I

said, buy sugar, honey. Buy sugar. Buy flour. These things are going to staples

are going to become extraordinarily expensive. Look at this. I don't know if you

guys saw this, but the classic Thanksgiving dinner? This is a chart, and I'll

hold it up for the Insiders but if you look at this, it shows that in 1986 the

price of a classic Thanksgiving dinner pick it up on 3. There it is. The classic

Thanksgiving dinner. And you'll see that it's pretty much flat line because

that's adjusted for inflation. If you don't adjust for inflation, here's the

cost. And inflation really is just inflating the money. That's all they are

doing is they are inflating the money.

PAT: It's like the cost of buying the Twelve Days of Christmas gifts?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: You know where the calling birds went out? I mean, that's

GLENN: You can't even

PAT: I mean, that's, you know, turtle doves, you can't even get a good turtle

dove anymore. You can't.

GLENN: Don't even talk to me about the pipers piping.

STU: I've been trying to get the lords a leaping for a while.

PAT: They're expensive.

STU: They are out of my price range.

PAT: You know why? You know why they are expensive? Unions. Union members.

STU: Union leapers?

GLENN: Communists? Communist union members?

PAT: The lords, they are all communists union members who make about $72,000 a

day.

GLENN: All right. Pipe down! All right, so here's the thing. Costs are going up.

People say how do I afford it? "Glenn, I'm on the line now." The average person

now, this isn't obviously everybody. The average person and I cannot believe

this has $20,000 to $25,000 worth of excess stuff in their house. Now

PAT: That's hard to believe.

GLENN: That is really hard to believe. My wife and I went through our house this

weekend and we put sticky notes on everything we're going to sell.

PAT: You're not including, like, furniture that you actually sit on, TVs you

use, that kind of stuff?

GLENN: No, we did.

PAT: You are including that?

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no, no. Not stuff you

PAT: Stuff you're using or stuff that you're not using?

GLENN: Some stuff you use and stuff but you don't need. You know, it's extra

stuff. It's like, you know what, we don't need this, you know. But mainly it's

stuff you don't use.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: You know where we found a lot of stuff? In boxes in the basement.

PAT: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And in, like, cupboards. Stuff you've got in the back of the cupboard and

you're like, I forgot we even had this. You know what I mean? We found stuff

this weekend that we had just put away from another move and we're just like, I

don't even remember having this. It's like you got a whole new set of stuff.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And so what we did is we put sticky notes on everything and we are going

to put it up on Upillar and we're selling it. And what I'm selling it for is

probably different than what you're selling it for. I'm going to encourage you

to do this right now. I want you to talk to your spouse tonight, and I want you

to go through your stuff. And your husband or your wife is going to think you're

crazy. I don't really care anymore. I don't care what anybody thinks of me

anymore. You think I'm crazy? Fine. Woo hoo, great, make fun of me. I mean,

stand in line on that one.

What I'm asking you to do is sell it, for one of three reasons. Go through and

find out what truly is meaningful in your life. Find out what you need. We've

got so much crap. We have so much clutter. We have so much materialism in our

lives that it clutters.

For instance, I am trying to convince my wife right now, and me, get rid of the

cellphones. Now, this is really no, no, no, I know this is really, really

bizarre and most people can't do this, but I want to get rid of them because I

don't want the electronics in the house.

PAT: You never use yours anyway.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: You might as well get rid of it.

GLENN: I know, but my wife uses it and I call her on hers all the time. We leave

them in the car or something else. I don't want all the distractions in the

house. I don't want them with the kids. I just don't want them.

STU: That's legitimate to try to keep them out of the house obviously. You know,

they're great for emergencies, there's uses for them.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, and that's why I'm saying I have different reasons for it.

I'm not saying, you know, don't have a cellphone. That's ridiculous. But get all

these things that were supposed to make our lives easier have made them more

complex.

STU: Well, you've seen those Windows, the Windows phone commercials they have

been airing lately which is their entire ad campaign is if you get a Windows

phone, you'll get off the phone faster. Like we'll give you all your updates on

one page and I mean, I don't know if it's any good but that's their pitch to

you. It's what they are seeing in people is that they want to get off the phone

and start reconnecting with actual people.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That are near you.

GLENN: We have to do that. So anyway, you can what I want you to do is I want

you to go through your house. Because if you have let's say you have $5,000

worth of stuff in your house that you just don't use. You've got sitting it's a

gift somebody gave you. Get rid of it. And here's why. One, pay off your bills.

If you had $5,000 worth of stuff sitting in your house that you don't use, if

you could get rid of it and you could raise $5,000, could you pay off your

credit card? Could you pay down your debt? What could you do with it?

Two, if you had $5,000 and you had paid down your debt, how about food storage?

Could you use $5,000 do you know what you could buy with $5,000 for food

storage? Enormous. Enormous amount.

PAT: You get a year's supply for five people.

GLENN: That's enormous. Pay it off and get your food storage. People have been

asking me, "Glenn, we want answers. What do we do?" Politically? Politically

it's in Broke. All of the answers that took us a year, over a year to do. Well,

this stuff has taken me about a year to come up with as well and this is just

the beginning. First step, get rid of your stuff. Sell it. The stuff you don't

use, sell it and pay down your debt and do food storage. I would do food storage

first.

The third option for people who are in my situation is I have found a town in

Ohio, and I will tell you about it in the coming days, but I want to recreate

George Bailey's It's A Wonderful Life at the end, that end scene. And my wife

and I have found a food pantry that is really struggling. And I mean, these guys

puts their hands on the shelves every day and pray on these shelves and say,

Lord, help us fill these shelves. Well, I don't know what the Lord's doing but I

know what we're doing, and we're going to help. And we are going to raise money

out of our own stuff and we're going to help other people with it. I'm going to

try to lead by some example here and show that we can help each other out, and

we can do it without really hurting ourselves at all. Helping ourselves. It's

good for us. It's good for me to get rid of this crap in my life and it is good

for the other end. So will you join me on this? I will give you more details.

I'm going to post it on

Upillar. It will probably be up there by next week. I'm going to post all my

stuff on Upillar and there's some great stuff. And I mean, there's some stuff

there that, I mean, there's some stuff there that is, you know, one of a kind

of, you know

PAT: Did you put the Pujols bat up?

GLENN: No, I didn't. I didn't do that.

PAT: Oh, I see.

GLENN: No, I didn't.

PAT: That's something you need! That's something you need, is it, Mr. Beck?

GLENN: There are a few things that my wife said no to and that was one of them.

I did put our pool table up, made just for my family. It says made for the Beck

family. Put that up. I love the pool table. My wife's like, which was the last

time you played pool? And I'm like, okay, it's been about a year and a half, but

I love it. And she's like, pool table is going. I said, and the pool table goes,

the brand new beautiful exercise equipment that we had to have, good stuff, it's

been used about three times. Gone! And I am happy about it.

STU: Isn't this just an excuse for, like, wives to be able to nag over things

they don't like?

GLENN: Oh, no, no, no. No, no, because it's like, oh, really? That's going? Do

you know what else is going? This is going. "I like that." You never use it.

STU: This is sort of like a trade war.

GLENN: It is, it is. It's great. It's really great. It was very liberating this

weekend. So please talk to your spouse about doing that. And we'll give you some

more information as we continue to move on.

 

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
