WELCOME - Fusion Magazine, September 2010

That sentence is as true today as it was when Thomas Paine wrote it in a series of articles collectively titled, The Crisis, back in December 1776. And it’s that undeniable truth that inspired my new book, Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure.

It’s not in my nature to tell you a version of the truth that I think you’d most like to hear. That would make me a liar, or as they’re usually called these days, a politician. I’ve framed this issue of Fusion around the ideas covered in Broke, and that’s because I feel the timing of this book and these conversations are critical. We’re at a crossroads in this country, and there’s not a moment to waste.

We’re coming up on fall, and the November mid-term elections are just weeks away. This is exactly the time those running for office (and from the truth) want you to believe that everything’s going to be OK…that there’s no need for concern…that they know just what to do to turn this country around. Now, more than ever, you can’t believe the hype. When did they come up with

these answers, and why does implementing them have to wait until they get re-elected? Desperation and honesty don’t tend to go hand in hand, and there’s nobody quite as desperate as a DC desk jockey looking to keep his cushy job. It’s time to ask the hard questions and accept nothing less than painfully honest answers in return.

What are the problems facing America? Race? Things are better, but they’re far from fixed. Illegal immigration? Muchos problemos. Foreign terror? Answer for yourself as you strip down at airport security. Health care? The proposed "cure" is worse than the disease. I could go on, but I’d only be listing things that have always challenged America and will likely continue to. However, the crisis of our economy is unique in that it is the one that could truly end America as we know it. It doesn’t get any more plain-spoken than that, and here’s why that kind of unflinching honesty is so important.

Let’s say you go to your doctor, and he diagnoses you with a potentially fatal disease. Is that diagnosis hate

speech? Of course not! It’s exactly the kind of unvarnished truth that gives you the necessary information needed to work toward a cure. This is exactly what we need from Washington when it comes to the economy! You know it’s bad, and someone telling you that we can solve our economic problems through severe "shared pain" is only adding to the problem by refusing to address it head on.

This is a new age in America. Our grandfathers were asked to storm beaches, but today we’re being asked to sacrifice in a different way. That’s not a new concept to Americans—we’ve always tightened our belts when times were tough and come out of those scrapes stronger and more prosperous than ever. But we’ve usually had the benefit of honest leaders, and I’m sorry to say that’s just no longer the case. What’s saddest of all is that there are really smart people thinking about our crises, and they’re coming up with

realistic solutions that can and would get us back on track. I talk to these people all the time, and I believe the answers to even the hardest questions are out there. Forget recession—it’s a boom time for American ingenuity! But too few are listening, and it’s those with too much power who hear the least. That’s why I wrote Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure, because the more people who know the truth, the harder it will be to peddle a lie.

Thomas Paine’s last entry in The Crisis, penned in 1776, begins with this sentence: "I thank God that I fear not. I see no real cause for fear. I know our situation well, and can see the way out of it." This is how I feel—I do see a way out, and by the time you read this issue of Fusion and my new book, I believe you will too. Now if only Washington would get its head out of the sand.

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?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

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.
