Clinton/Obama or Obama/Clinton?

GLENN: Unless Hillary Clinton said today, I think it was on CBS, the "CBS Morning News", Harry -- Smith, Harry Smith. He asked the question, which was a great question: Possibility that you guys become President and vice president? She said, "That very well may be the way this ends up." That's the only way. I mean, can you imagine this being taken from -- what was it? I love this. In the Washington Post yesterday some big feminist woman. And there's nothing like a racial slur to bring everything home for you. Some big feminist said in the Washington Post yesterday, if Barack Obama takes this with superdelegates, the women of this country are going to feel -- and I'm quoting -- gypped. That's good. The same thing with Hillary Clinton. If Hillary Clinton takes this with superdelegates, because remember you can legally bribe these guys. This is the way the system is. You can buy their vote. They are the people who are saying, we've got to stop all this special interest and the lobbying and all the money and politics. You can literally buy the vote of the superdelegate with no consequence. It's legal. It's in the system. What did you say, Stu?

STU: How does that work?

GLENN: You send the money.

STU: You just --

GLENN: You send the money.

STU: It can't be that straightforward.

GLENN: It is that straightforward.

STU: You send them money, you say vote for me and you can have this money and then they'll vote for you? Really? You might be right.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. I don't know if you can actually say, I'm going to send you this money if you vote for me.

STU: So it's just, hey, here's a large donation.

GLENN: Yes. You know what you really need help with? Money.

STU: Hey, dude, I totally forgot, like, $300,000 on your couch.

GLENN: You don't have to be subtle about it. You can do it on TV. Here's $300,000.

STU: But you just can't say here's $300,000, vote for me.

GLENN: No, no. You may be able to say that. I'm not sure. We've got to find out. Let's get a superdelegate expert on radio and television. We've got to get -- you know what, call television up. Tell them that what I just gave, the facts that I just gave, we've got to do this tonight. I've got to know all of the answers to this tonight because it's going to come down to superdelegates and so it will be like a little maze. You know what I mean? And it will be how to avoid the burning cars in the street. How do we get around the burning cars? How does this not back 1968? I think the only way is for these two to come together. Sorry. I'm struggling. I'm trying to figure out another way to phrase this. Okay, who's going to be the President? All I could think of was who's on top and I thought... who's going to be the President? That's what it would have to come down to and I guess that would come down to who has the most delegates, I guess, and they call the superdelegates. Or the add-on delegates. That's not even adding in the add-on delegates that we just found out about yesterday. Those people haven't even been picked. It's just somebody who's -- you know what? We've got to have you vote, too. 76 add-on delegates. This is incredible. This is the -- this is the system that the rest of the world looks to and says, wow, (whispering.) This is why our founding fathers said these parties are going to be the death of us. Because your voice, in the end, Texas, you spoke last night. You said Hillary Clinton. Now it's at the caucus. So far the caucus looks like it's going to go to Obama, which means I think the delegates go to Obama. Not all of them. Some of them. But more than hers. What? How is that possible? The people spoke. But in the caucus that counts more? How is this, how does this reflect the will of the people at all? This is everything that we're trying to get away from.

The Omicron 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.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.
