Priorities: where does your family rate?

 


Pre-Order 8.28.2010: Miracle on the Mall

GLENN: You know, I've been talking about this perfect storm for a while and WikiLeaks is the beginning of it, and there are other things that are happening now, and I can just I'm going to outline on the TV show tonight a little a list of the pressures and which ones can we relieve, and it's very clear the things that we can effect.

The problem that we have in our nation is that we don't, we don't know history. We don't know the facts of who we are. You have been doing so much work trying to repair that, but I want you to look at your kids as a clay jar or a clay pot, a seed vault. Put the Dead Sea Scrolls into your children and seal it up. Put those seeds of our republic into your children and seed it up, just seal it and it will sprout again in a season. But we have got to look at ourselves as Sarah Connor because we are headed for tough times. Now, that doesn't mean that, you know, the Terminator is coming for us. I don't know. I don't know what the times will be. I will tell you that I I tell you that God is involved. I will tell you that God does not lose. His our freedom is His. These rights are we were stewards of them. They are not rights. They're His and they are stewards, and we have been poor stewards. And we will have to pay the price. However, I feel a great and powerful love from God. It is not the angry vengeful God. It is love. And He will right things. And we may not like the way He rights things, just like we say to our children all the time: You can either do this or you'll pay the penalty and I'll do it. But you're not going to like the way I do it. It's true. He's our parent. He's our heavenly parent.

So things will be right because you cannot go against the natural laws. So I think He is going to use the Tower of Babel analogy. I think he's going to confuse our language. I think as everyone else is pushing to be bigger and bigger and bigger, we cannot do that because the entire human race could be wiped out and I think just like the Tower of Babel, I think He is going to confuse our language. I think He is going to confuse our communication. I think He is going to split us apart and we'll lose a lot of the things that we have had, that make the world so small. And we have to choose to look at that as a good thing. I think it is.

One thing that I have been, you know, I've we'll talk about this later, but I've been cleaning out my life on Upillar and we posted a bunch of the stuff last night because I just, we don't need all the stuff we have. We had stuff in storage from another move and everything else and other people may need it. And so we're putting it all up for auction. It started today. We're putting it all up for auction at Upillar, and all the proceeds will go to helping others. I'm not going to keep the money.

But one of the other things is I am I've been struggling with technology in my life. In fact, we've moved into another house and I said to my wife the other day, I don't want any televisions in here. I don't want any of it. I like the fact that it's quiet. And we were going back and forth: Well, you need television, you need this, you need that. You know, and before you know it, all of a sudden you're back in the same situation you were in. I don't want my iPhone. I don't want my iPad. I don't want any of it. I love it. I love it and I use it all the time. But that's the problem. I use it all the time. I think we have to force ourselves to be quiet and disconnect and be able to turn back to the family.

I'm going to talk to my wife tonight about getting rid of all of our phones and I know she won't go for it, but I'm get rid of all the or just go back to a regular, you know, cellphone, just like a little cellphone that doesn't have all the games and all of the Internet and the mail and everything. It will wait. It will wait. And it's funny because my wife tells me to do this on vacation and I always have a hard time on vacation. Not this time. I'll throw them in the sea. But she has a hard time for everyday life where I have a hard time doing it to unplug on vacation. I think we need to compromise somehow or other. I need to do it on vacation totally and I think we need to do some of it in real life. You know, the rest of the year. And here's what I'd like to ask. I'd actually like to ask Pat and his wife Jackie to help. Pat and Jackie are the best parents I've ever seen. I have seen really remarkable people and parents before, but I've never seen, I've never seen a family like Pat's. Pat's family struggles just like everybody else's family struggles, but he is a remarkable father and she is a remarkable mom. I, on the other hand, don't know how to do things. I don't. I grew up in a weird family. We didn't you know, we worked all the time. My kids come to work. I mean, I'm repeating my father's life in many ways. My kids come to work. They will be here this afternoon and they will be on, you know, Dad's lap when we're doing some work. They were with me this weekend. They will they travel with me. They're backstage. Last night my other daughter was on stage at the television show and she was there and we talked during commercial breaks. I mean, that's the way I grew up, too.

I was thinking last night that because we were watching a Christmas movie with the kids over the weekend and we started talking about Christmas and everything else. We go to church. We pray. We read our scriptures, everything else. But the kids got focused on Santa Claus again. And there's nothing wrong with focusing on Santa Claus, but I don't think we're doing enough. And I you know, in my faith there's something called family home evening that we are the church recommends that on Monday nights you make dinner together, somebody, you know, does scripture study, somebody else leads the prayer, somebody else plans the game and then somebody else is doing, you know, dessert. And you have an evening with the family and you plan something every week. Well, we've tried it a few times, and it's really hard to do. And I don't I think it's just because of the habit it's hard to do. And especially if you're somebody who, like me, has never done it before and it's and I'm afraid that my children's childhood is slipping through my fingers and I'm going to lose the opportunity and I'm going to create another me at the end. And I don't want that.

So what I wanted to ask Pat is if you and Jackie would help my family and help outline something for every week that we could show on maybe television, on radio and we could have like a step by step, okay, here's what you do tonight. Because we don't have any idea what we're doing and we need some guidance. Does that make sense?

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Would you be willing to do that?

PAT: Yeah, yeah. Absolutely.

GLENN: It's really up to your wife, isn't it? Your wife is

PAT: Pretty much, yeah, pretty much.

GLENN: You didn't really because you didn't grow up in this, either, did you?

PAT: No, we really didn't have it until Jackie and I got married.

GLENN: Did Jackie?

PAT: They did, mmm hmmm, yeah.

GLENN: She's like a

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: She's like a god Nazi.

STU: That's an odd phrase.

GLENN: I know it is.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: I know it is but you're like, "And we will be praying now, yah? We will be worshipping now, yah?"

PAT: It's accurate, it's accurate.

GLENN: We will be talking right here as a family and eating dinner, yah? You're like, okay, it spooks me. It's all really good stuff but with the accent it's kind of spooky.

PAT: And why do you have to say yah, after every sentence? Why?

GLENN: That's what we do, yah? That's what we do, yah?

STU: It seems like Pat, by the way, is a good parent in the way that we want the good government in that he just gets out of the way of Jackie. Like that's

PAT: That's the thing.

STU: That's the secret to Pat's parenthood.

PAT: Exactly right.

STU: Just gets out of the way.

GLENN: Tania and I, because we have such a weird life and I don't think it's anybody I don't think it's any different than other people that do two jobs. Mom and Dad both work and so they get home and they are all like, just trying to get life done. Life is way too complex. It's too complex. There's too much stuff going on. There's too you know, the soccer games really hacked me off with Raphe. I'm taking my son to soccer games and it's on Saturday mornings. We get up and I'm watching these people take their kids to soccer games and I'm like, this didn't happen when we were kids. You didn't have organized play. You had play, go out and play. And my wife said, well, where are they going to play? In the backyard. With who? Well, that's a problem then. We're living in the wrong neighborhood. If the kids don't if the kids can't go connect with neighbor kids, then we're in the wrong neighborhood. What do you mean? We don't need all this organized play. All of the parents. Look at it's play worship. He the it's play worship. The parents are going out to watch their kids play on Saturday? Go outside and play! Our parents didn't stand around and watch us play a baseball game. Once in a while Dad would stop by and he would see and he would say, hey, come here, let me help you with that. But it wasn't organized. We've perverted everything. We've perverted nature. We really have. We don't we have to teach our kids how to play. What is that?

PAT: Well, they're you know, there were some organized like I played little league baseball.

GLENN: I understand that.

PAT: Little league football.

GLENN: That's the only real play many kids get now.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Is it's an organized sport. No. You can do organized sports. We did have little league baseball and everything else.

PAT: Yes, but you should be doing the other, too, you're right.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: And instead that's been replaced by Xbox and movies and all of that stuff.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, is anybody going out and getting the neighbor kids and just going to play basketball games? At least not in my not in my neighborhood. Not in my town. I don't even know if my state.

PAT: No, I think it's illegal in Connecticut.

GLENN: I think it is. I think it is.

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."
