Big gov libs--who made it without government help


Glenn is seen here on the Glenn Beck webcam, an exclusive feature available only for Insiders...

GLENN: All of these people, Michelle Obama, she was whining on television the other day that, "I'm 40. I'm in my 40s and we're just now paying off our student loans. That's just not right." You went to Princeton and Harvard! (Sobbing). Let me cry you a river. You went to Princeton and Harvard! I mean, you would have your state college paid out, you know, it would be all done by now. You would have, you know, New Haven state -- what is it? Greater New Haven State Technical College, you wanted to go to beauty school, it would be covered by now. You went to Princeton and Harvard! Oh, my goodness, what a cross you've had to bear.

Hillary Clinton, "I just can't make it." John Edwards, "I'm the son of a mail worker. Why? Why are there children without faces now? Why don't we care?" We do care! You show me a kid without a face, I'm going to go help raise faces for him, okay? I don't think the government should be in the business of making faces for children. I'll go and help raise faces. I'll have a telethon or radiothon or fundraiser. I'll go door to door for children. "Hi, my name's Glenn Beck and I just found out about little Sally Muckenfutch without a face and I'm raising spare faces. Do you have a spare face that you'd like to..." I'll just go to politicians' houses. I know you've got an extra face!

It's so bogus. Instead of taking their own experiences and building America up, they take their own experiences, dismiss them and then tear America down, instead of saying, look what can be done, look what can be done. They don't do that. I mean, let me give you an example, may I? May I give you an example?

VOICE: And now another moment in Progressive history.

GLENN: Born the son of a textile millworker, his father and his mother, his mother worked as a postal letter carrier. After being a star athlete in high school, he's the first person in his family to ever attend college. He studied hard and graduated with high honors. After law school he clerked for a federal judge and later became an associate at a Nashville law firm doing trial work. After transferring jobs and moving to North Carolina, he was assigned work on a seemingly unwinnable case. The firm had only accepted it as a favor to a state senator. An attorney who didn't want to keep it passed it to him. He took that unwinnable case and won $3.7 million in a malpractice verdict on behalf of his client. He went on to represent many, many, many, many, many clients and win many, many, many, many millions and millions and millions of dollars. He later became a senator and even ran for President. Senator John Edwards is yet another liberal self-made true American success story. How many times did the Government step in and save the day for the Edwards family? Exactly zero.

VOICE: That was another moment in Progressive history on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: You know what? Hang on, hang on, hang on. May I give you one more example?

VOICE: And now another moment in Progressive history.

GLENN: He never knew his father. Just three months before his birth, the traveling salesman dad was killed in a car accident. His mom decided she needed to get an education. So she left the young baby with her parents. She went off to pursue a nursing degree. Mom remarried and unfortunately his stepdad was a drunk who liked to gamble, also liked to abuse mom. He focused his frustration and energy towards reading. He became a big, big reader. He was very active as a student leader in high school. He was also a musician. He nearly chose the life of a musician but decided instead to pursue his education. Because of his hard work and success in school, he was awarded scholarships to attend college, for his family couldn't afford it on their own. After graduating, he worked as an intern for a United States senator who was also a Rhodes scholar and helped him become a Rhodes scholar. He studied at Oxford University. He later got a law degree from Yale. He remained active in politics and eventually became governor of Arkansas and finally the President of the United States. This young man who never knew his father, for his dad died three months before his birth. He was a traveling salesman. Mom had to go back to school. She married a drunk who gambled and beat her, yet William Jefferson Clinton overcame all of the odds and became the President of the United States. Gee, another American success story with the government stepping in to help William Jefferson Clinton exactly how many times? Zero!

VOICE: That was another moment in Progressive history on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: I just don't get it.

VOICE: And now another moment in Progressive history.

GLENN: Born in the Midwest, the son of a secretary and an automotive assembly line worker, he and his family didn't have much but he was active in a student newspaper in the drama club. After high school he went on to college. It lasted a couple of years before dropping out and going to work at one of the automotive plants his dad used to work at. While he was working there, he also began working in his spare time as a writer and created a weekly magazine that covered local news. He kept working both jobs and the magazine did well and he was able to expand to cover statewide news. Eventually he quit working at the automotive plant altogether and was hired as an editor of a political magazine. Well, let's just say he had a few philosophical differences on a few issues with this magazine and he was fired from the job as an editor, but he did the John Edwards thing and he went to court. He contested his firing, eventually settled out of court for $58,000. He used that seed money to create a movie, his first feature film. From there he went on to become a multimillion dollar filmmaker with his own jet, I understand, and a place right here in New York City on Central Park. He's won Oscar awards. It all started with Roger and Me. Michael Moore, a self-made socialist liberal. Not only did Michael Moore do it himself, not one time in Michael Moore's life did the government step in and give him any sort of grant or leg up. From college dropout to auto assembly line worker to Oscar winning multimillionaire filmmaker Michael Moore, yet another true American success story. But Michael Moore will tell you you can't do it. The Progressive movement has to teach you that you can't do it, that capitalism is evil, that corporations are evil. They will tell you also that the government is all screwed up but they can make it bigger, especially really wonderful if they combine that bigger government with nationalized industry. If they could just take over business through government, why, then, we would all have an opportunity to make it. No thanks. I like it the way it is, based on my hard work.

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.
