GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. Let me go to Scott who is our Couple of the Year contestant. Scott.

SCOTT: Glenn.

GLENN: I'm just looking at your -- you know, we did kind of a Mad Lib thing where I wrote an essay and you just had to fill in the blanks and I'm just looking here and it says right up at the top, says you're having a tough time in your marriage.

SCOTT: Yes. It's not real good right now and she's called me 14 times in the last 20 minutes and I haven't been able to answer because I've been on hold to risk hanging up. So this has got to be something really good here.

GLENN: Why would you -- if your marriage isn't going so well, why would you do this?

SCOTT: Well, I tried to do a dinner at Outback. We had an argument that morning and we had the dinner planned after work that evening and I kind of forced the dinner hoping it would smooth things over and that went poorly, it was quiet and no one spoke and --

GLENN: So maybe you should stop listening to your gut.

SCOTT: Yeah, probably.

GLENN: Yeah. But your gut is telling you now you should be the Couple of the Year contestant.

SCOTT: I need salvation, Glenn. I need someone to save me.

GLENN: I don't know if this is going to work. Okay, does she listen to the program at all?

SCOTT: No. She hates talk radio.

GLENN: She hates talk radio? Oh, this is getting even better. Okay, remember you wrote this about four months ago to me. You've done the contest. And that was your excuse last night. I'm going to ask you if you led her on and you said no and it was because I was sick yesterday and we couldn't do the Couple of the Year contest, okay?

SCOTT: I'm hoping to go to at least another dinner and have a better time this time.

GLENN: Where are you going to send her?

SCOTT: Try the Outback again. She likes it there.

GLENN: Listen to me. I'm going to ask you if you have anything to say to her. Count to five right after I say, do you have anything to say? And you say, yeah, Susan? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... I love you. And then -- because that way it's like you are fighting back the tears. Got it?

SCOTT: Got it.

GLENN: Okay, we have her on hold? Put her on hold so she can hear the stuff? And hear we go. So we'll have more on John McCain here in just a second. But first something we should have done yesterday.

VOICE: Now it's the contest of the year in the making. It's Glenn Beck's quest to find America's ultimate couple of love. The essays have been written, the heartfelt words have been read, and the winner has been selected. So now to introduce the country's most passionate pair, here's the love God himself, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: As you know, we do this every year where we start months in advance and I ask you to write an essay about the love of your life and we get thousands of entries in. And we read them all and we have Scott who wrote our winning entry here and we'll get his wife on the phone here in just a second. Scott, how are you, sir?

SCOTT: I'm doing fine, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Very good. How long ago did you write this e-mail? This came in, this looks like an early --

SCOTT: About three or four months ago or so.

GLENN: So this was the first contest this year. Have you ever entered before?

SCOTT: No.

GLENN: And I so apologize for yesterday. We were supposed to do this yesterday. You knew that and I couldn't make the broadcast yesterday because I have been so sick lately and I wanted to delay it. Did you break the news to her yesterday or not? Did you keep the secret?

SCOTT: No, I kept it on the down low.

GLENN: Okay. So do we have her on the phone? Let's go to Susan. Susan?

SUSAN: Yes?

GLENN: Hi, how are you?

SUSAN: Just fine. And yourself?

GLENN: Well, very good. I don't know if you know who I am, but I'm Glenn Beck and I do a radio program. And --

SUSAN: I've definitely heard of you.

GLENN: You've definitely heard of me? And what we have is a contest that we've been -- we run every year and about three, four months ago your husband wrote in an essay and he's been selected as the winning essay and we were supposed to do this on Valentine's Day but I couldn't make it yesterday and so my apologies for wrecking your Valentine's Day. I don't know if you guys -- what you guys did yesterday but this was kind of like Scott's big surprise and then I pulled the rug from underneath him last night -- or yesterday afternoon and it was pretty ugly. So may I read the entry? Are you there? Susan?

SUSAN: Yes, I'm here.

GLENN: May I read what he wrote?

SUSAN: Yes, that's fine.

GLENN: Okay. He wrote -- this is pretty special, isn't it?

SUSAN: Yes.

GLENN: He wrote, "Dear Glenn, I've never entered a contest like this before. However, I felt I had to tell you about my beautiful wife. I really can't express in words how uniquely wonderful Susan truly is. Honestly at first I think I was just attracted to her butt, but as time went on it turned into so much more." Well, you are an honest one there, Scott. "I guess I knew it was true love the first time we kissed on the deck during that thunderstorm and that trip to the Outer Banks. Wow. What a perfect time it was. Do you remember the thunderstorm, Susan?

SUSAN: Oh, certainly.

GLENN: Perfect time?

SUSAN: Just perfect.

GLENN: Yeah, that's just weird. You guys have so much in common, that's exactly what he wrote, what a perfect time that was. "I guess what sets her apart is the distinctive way she shows her love unlike any other woman in" -- Albemarle County? Albemarle County? Is that how you say it?

SUSAN: Albemarle. Albemarle.

GLENN: Yes. "I could go on forever but that would take away my time with her and I have to get back to work at Virginia Business System where I fix copiers from 8:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday. Besides, everyone tries to make love so complex and that's why I think we should be your Valentine's Couple of the Year because for me it's simple. I just love Susan."

SUSAN: Oh. Sorry. I'm in tears.

GLENN: I know, it's really, it's -- you've got a good guy there.

SUSAN: Yes, I do.

GLENN: And Scott, you sound like you have a wonderful woman there and I hope you treat her right.

SCOTT: I try when I can, Beck.

GLENN: Well, we're going to send you guys out. I understand your favorite restaurant is Outback. So we're going to send you out to your favorite restaurant and congratulations, both of you, for being the Couple of the Year. It's really a spectacular thing and I hope you have a great, just a terrific weekend.

SUSAN: Thank you so much.

GLENN: You bet. Scott, do you have anything you want to say to Susan?

SCOTT: I do, Glenn. Susan?

SUSAN: Yeah?

SCOTT: I love you with all my heart. I need you to believe that. Sues Susie love you, too, sweetie.

GLENN: Well, there it is. Boy, day after Valentine's Day and the love just keeps going on. Thank you guys so much. Congratulations.

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.
