Intern Blog: Perry goes to Washington

As if moving from a mountain in Tennessee to New York City isn’t scary enough, imagine working for a powerful company run by Glenn Beck and being sent to DC the second week on the job.

My first week working for TheBlaze consisted of analyzing app reviews, selecting pictures for the website, reading through a bazillion fan mail e-mails and meeting the one and only Glenn Beck (this all being much more than I’ve done in my other five jobs combined). During this busy week, I was also told I would be attending a quick trip to DC with two other marketing interns. We were asked to tag along to a reception hosted by TheBlaze, which promoted getting TheBlaze on cable and the event also discussed the importance of media in the future. This event had cream of the crop speakers including Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Rand Paul, Representative Marsha Blackburn, and Senator Mike Lee.

After waking up at 5:00 AM we embarked on a train to DC - this train was slower than the cars on the interstate - and arrived in the nation’s capital around 11:00 AM and went straight to the venue.

Arriving in DC was incredible. It was very refreshing to see blue sky without skyscrapers obstructing the view and smell fresh air without the smell of sewage (but don’t get me wrong, I heart NYC). Upon arriving at the stunning and delicious Acadiana restaurant, we stuffed 150 gift bags that contained some great info on how to get TheBlaze. After running out of red tissue paper with only a few bags left, Nancy and I went to the closest convenient store looking for the essential ingredient to make the gift bags look like a fiery blaze. The women at the CVS said there was a “great gift shop a few blocks away”, but I learned a few blocks in DC doesn’t mean the same thing in New York. After a hike to this “gift shop”, we arrived at the address and gift shop it was not. Actually it wasn’t even remotely close. It was a grocery store and butcher shop. So unless the woman at CVS just wanted us to stuff the bags red meat, the thirty-minute trip wasn’t worth it.

We finally arrived back at the restaurant and eagerly waited for the guests to arrive. Although a minor role, our job was to man the welcome table and hand out nametags and gift bags. I loved this job for two reasons. One because we were lucky enough to greet the guests and meet the all the wonderful congressmen who spoke at the event. Being the star struck young adult that I am, when Senator Ted Cruz and Rand Paul approached the table I started to slur my words when we thanked him for coming. The same thing happened when Glenn Beck walked by and I shot him an awkward smile and wave, as if we had been friends for years. We haven’t. Clearly I panic in the presence of greatness.

The second reason I loved working the welcome table was because we were next to the kitchen and all the food that was brought out on trays came by our table first. And being a college student interning in NYC, receiving free food is like having a birthday every day.

Unfortunately we were not able to be in the room with all these fabulous people, but the good news is we could hear everything that was being said. It was truly amazing to hear these politicians speak, and it was even more amazing to me that senators who have so much influence in government came to support this company. When I had a little free time, I slipped into the room a few times to hear Senator Cruz joke about Glenn Beck broadcasting from jail one day, and Senator Paul imitate the silent monologue by Glenn Beck from his show the night before.

I was lucky enough to meet and take a picture with Senator Ted Cruz, but of course with my luck something went wrong. My camera must have had the same reaction I did in the presence of greatness and panicked because THIS is what the picture looked like.

I don’t think I will ever be in a room with such influential people in my life. Being in this room full of people who are so passionate about what they do is truly inspiring. Every single person who works for this company is so passionate about TheBlaze and it really shows. My role in the reception was pretty minor, but it was by far the best and most memorable day of work I’ve ever had. TheBlaze is making their imprint in history, and yesterday I saw a glimpse of how truly amazing this company really is.

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.
