Insiders, click here to listen to the entire Parent of the Year Awards...

VOICE: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the two billion and seven parent of the year award pageant, honoring the biggest dirtbags in parenting, the PPI, Pathetic Parent Institute started as a parental education facility but once we found out most of these idiots had no hope whatsoever of being rehabilitated it, blossomed as a procreation of licenses, a sterilization clinic and the world's largest working incinerator gallery this side of Germany. And now the PPI presents two billion and seven parent of the year award. With your host, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Who my wife informed me last night I was a, not a positive potty role model. So I have to practice all day being very excited. "Pee in the potty." Sound genuine? So I'm just trying to be a more positive potty role model today and there are those who are much, much worse off in the potty role model department and the child rearing department. And let's start here in St. Louis.

VOICE: Category, parent of the year. Nominee, this dope.

GLENN: Police don't want to know why a 3-year-old boy was left alone in a suburban St. Louis shopping mall over the weekend. Where did I put my child? Gosh, I know I left him some place. Wish I had a little beeper on him so like, I could push the remote control and then the child, beep, beep, beep, that I could find him... oh, I left him under the couch. But I would always be losing the child remote control. You know the drill.

Monday the child's mother was still refusing to show up and talk with police. The boy was discovered by employees around 8:30 at the NASCAR speed park in St. Louis Mills mall in Hazelwood, not long before the mall was supposed to close. The boy's name apparently is Cortez. The officers determined that he was 3. His complete identity was unknown until 21 hours later. Police circulated his picture to the media. His aunt called authorities about 6:00 on Sunday. The aunt verified that she, the boy's mother and a group of children had been at the mall.

The aunt? Nobody counted how many -- I mean, how many kids were at the mall? You know, usually one of us will say, do we have everybody? And then we count. And especially with 3-year-olds. And I'm pretty sure that we would recognize that Raphe was missing for a full day, but is it me going out on a limb? I don't know. I'm just like that. You know, I'm just -- you know. "Soon after that the mother identified as 28-year-old Shameka Taylor phoned police." (Phone ringing). "Police." "Yeah, let's just say that the mom of that 3-year-old, let's call him Cortez, would call you up." "Uh-huh." "Would they be arrested?" "This doesn't happen to be the mom of Cortez, does it?" "No, I just -- this is a hypothetical question. I just -- you know." The officers told her they just had some questions for her. She still hasn't shown up.

You know what the police should get? I don't know if you've ever heard of this. Caller ID? If they could get something -- and I don't know if it's available in St. Louis. If the police could get caller ID, they would probably be able to find her, you know? Or star 69, you know? "No, I don't know what you're talking about." (Phone ringing). "Hello?" "Yeah, it's the police. We have some more questions for you." "I'm sorry. I'm not at home. Leave a message at the tone. Boop."

Okay. This isn't working. I mean, we just had the conversation with you.

VOICE: Category, parent of the year. Nominee, this guy (applause).

GLENN: By the way, police are saying it was just bad judgment on the mom's part. They believe it was accidental in the beginning but then there comes a time -- I'm quoting. But then there comes a time when you realize the boy's not there and you should do something about it. So --.

This is a lifetime achievement award. We don't hand these out just higgledy-piggledy. This one is -- I mean, it takes a truly monstrous parent to be able to do what this parent did. He apparently attached alligator clips to the ears of his sleeping wife and children and then zapped them with electricity. He also used to use a hammer to hit his 6-year-old daughter in the head and then he wasn't in a rage but he was really, he was miffed. He was really, really miffed at his family and he got the alligator clips out and electrocuted his family. So....

By the way, we gave him a lifetime achievement award because this happened in 1970 and he's still missing. They are still looking for him. So if you know a guy who, you know, you might suspect killed his whole family with alligator clips and an electrical cord, you might want to call police. (Phone ringing). "Hello, police." "Let's just say that I electrocuted my whole family with alligator clips. Would I be arrested?"

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.
