TSA controversy a union ploy?

GLENN: As people get ready to go to the airport, have you ‑‑ I mean, are you lonely? Seriously. Because you might meet somebody special in the TSA, and the TSA has quite a future. My wife is flying, what, next week, and she said to me last night, she said, I think I'm just going to go through the scanner. And I said, good luck with that, honey. If you've ever wanted really hot pictures of you, they will be available now.

PAT: That's the thing.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It's a tough choice.

GLENN: She's not going to do it.

PAT: For me it's a tough choice.

GLENN: She is not going to do it.

PAT: She's not going to do the scanner?

GLENN: No, she's not going to do the scanner.

PAT: Is she going to get the pat‑down?

GLENN: Yep. And she said, well, then I get the pat‑down and I said, honey, everybody's got to make their own choice, but I mean, I guess if I didn't believe the things that I do believe, I would be fine with the scanner: Fine, let's just do the scanner. But, you know, may I just, may I just put some things together here in your head and just tell me what you think. Tell, show me where this is wrong. How did this pat‑down thing start, this aggressive pat‑down? The pat‑down started aggressive like this because people were starting to protest the scanners. Now, we haven't had a speech, we haven't heard anything about, you know, that we have a terror threat. The terror threat hasn't been raised. It's the same terror threat. So at, what, 40 airports people started to have a problem with the scanners. So all of a sudden TSA starts to pat people down. Well, patting people down is one thing but then did you notice that a couple of days into that, maybe a week into that, they became very aggressive. You were seeing the normal pat‑down and then they became extraordinarily aggressive. May I suggest that this is the Overton Window? That they are assaulting our children, they are assaulting your crotch. And why? So if they decide to pull back on it, you'll gladly go to the scanner. I mean, when my wife said to me last night, "I know, but then you've got to do the pat‑down, and I don't want that pat‑down." You'd much rather just walk through for two seconds into a scanner where it's pornography! You know, if those things were erasing the pictures, maybe. Maybe. But they're not. They don't erase them. They can store, what is it, 30,000 of those pictures? And they can send them. No, I don't think so. I don't think so. I'm sorry, I just don't trust the federal worker. I have nothing against TSA. Many of them do their job and do it very well. Some of them don't. They stink on ice. What a surprise, it's like the general population in everything else. But these are not law enforcement officials. These are people who got a job at the airport and they trained them. This isn't the military. No, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. If the military were running the machines, strangely I'd feel better. But as a libertarian that doesn't make it better. So I think the Overton Window is happening.

And then yesterday in USA Today, I don't know if you saw this, but in USA Today there was a half‑page ad extolling the plight of the TSA worker. And we want you to know that we're behind you 110%. You are under so much pressure and so much stress, we want you to know what the big fat meanies say about you is just not true. Your friend, Richard Trumka, AFL‑CIO. Half‑page ad yesterday for the TSA.

Ten days ago the president opens up the ability for the TSA to unionize. That is something everybody agreed on after the PATRIOT Act passed which, by the way, was written in 1995 by Joe Biden. I mean, is any of this stuff coming together here for you?

So the left, who has had a problem with the TSA and Homeland Security being black ‑‑ or jack‑booted thugs, they have been the ones saying this is the Gestapo, we want a repeal of the PATRIOT Act. The PATRIOT Act with the wiretapping was written by Joe Biden. It's been a ruse, gang. Now they have had a problem, they don't want any questioning of anybody, they don't want ‑‑ there is no war on terror. This is nothing but scare tactics.

Have you noticed that every single person on the left has fallen into line with these extreme pat‑downs? Every single one? I haven't heard an out ‑‑ I haven't heard an outcry at all from the left.

PAT: Well, was it just last night when Chris Matthews said that it's ginned up by the right?

MATTHEWS: Future shocks, you don't like the new TSA security procedure. So think about what the world would be like five minutes after a plane blows up. Imagine the questions: Who let that guy on the plane? Why weren't stricter procedures followed?

GLENN: What did I tell you?

MATTHEWS: Who's at fault? The rightwing is ginning up this controversy but you want to know ‑‑

GLENN: What did I tell you?

MATTHEWS: Who is the rightwing going to blame if someone does get through that screen at the airport?

GLENN: Yep.

MATTHEWS: President Obama, that's who. So before we get all the way to that and all our arms up about our inconvenient days at the airport, ask yourself how you'll feel after the next terrorist attack.

PAT: Same guy, same people that were yelling and screaming about the warrantless wiretapping, that were screaming about the screening in the first place at the airport.

GLENN: So you know, so you know, the pat‑down at the airport is a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights. We're not talking about ‑‑ we're not talking about something small here. We are talking about the destruction of the Fourth Amendment.

PAT: It's actually happening.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: They couldn't point to a single incident as far as I know that we ever tracked down with the PATRIOT Act. Was there a single violation?

GLENN: No, there wasn't.

PAT: And this ‑‑

GLENN: Who was there?

PAT: This is ‑‑

STU: I mean, you know ‑‑

GLENN: Every six months ‑‑

PAT: Not that we know of.

GLENN: ‑‑ you have to go and testify and I used to ask you all the time, have you heard any testimony, has anybody brought in testimony?

STU: Right, there was always accusations but when you looked into them, they fell apart.

GLENN: Right, they fell apart. There was no testimony in congress of anybody specifically. There was always the group that said this could be. Well, yeah, it could be.

STU: Yeah, and there were people that said things happened to them and blah, blah‑blah, blah‑blah but, you know ‑‑

GLENN: Never made. Never made.

PAT: There was that library thing in Seattle I think that didn't pan out. And here's something that's happening every day to probably, if not hundreds of thousands of people.

GLENN: Wait, you want to talk about a library thing, how about what happened with Joe the plumber?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, with his records being released by government operatives. I mean, that's incredible. And yet nobody had a problem with that. So there is something wrong with this. First of all, they are unionizing the TSA. You do not want what the left called jack‑booted thugs. What the left called the Gestapo. You do not want them built into a union army. What do you think this is?

When we come back ‑‑ I'm going to take a quick break. When we come back, if you think that a union army, if you think that this is crazy, I'm going to play, how many pieces of audio do we have now? Three pieces, four pieces of new audio today on The Blaze where communists are saying now is the time for revolution. Exactly what I told you. Communists that are saying we have to take it. Communists that are now saying that it is the right that is raising the price of food and gasoline to prepare people for riots in the streets. They're actually having the cojones to say that this is a plan from the right. Excuse me. Haven't you been calling me a fear monger for the last two, actually four years on this, telling you that these things were coming? And they were calling me a fear monger. Now they accept the premise except they're blaming it on people like me!

If you think that the president wouldn't want a civilian defense force just as strong, just as well funded as the U.S. military, you can look to, you know, AmeriCorps or anything else. But as I was driving in this morning, I thought to myself, why, why would you want to go to AmeriCorps? Why would you want to have to build all this structure when the structure is already there? It's called the Department of Homeland Security.

I'm going to play some of this audio for you from the left and then I want to remind you what is happening in England today. There are more riots from the left because they're cutting subsidies for colleges, they're cutting spending and they're raising tuition. Exactly what's coming here in America. And the left has everybody in the streets. They are trying to take away your right to education. And then I will share this with you: Have no fear. God is not disengaged. God is aware and awake and active. I have seen miracles with my own eyes. I have seen things come together. This summer I'm going to tell you a story of something that has just happened to us this week that is full‑fledged, I mean almost, almost ‑‑ there's a guy who works on my staff that witnessed something this week that happened that is just unbelievable, unbelievable that said that is like spooky, it is so intense. There are things that are happening not just here but all over the country. God's involved and here's where you take solace. He doesn't lose. They are enemies of him. They are not enemies of ours because our freedom doesn't belong to us. It belongs to Him. Choose sides. And stand back. Stand behind Him. And prepare to see the hand of almighty God.


 

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?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

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."
