‘You may disagree with me…’ Glenn explains his personal journey as of late

Over the last few months, Glenn has heard from supporters and detractors about the position he has taken on a number of issues. On radio this morning, Glenn sought to further clarify where he is headed both personally and professionally as he laid out the values and principles that inform his life. While he understands not everyone will agree with his logic, he felt it was necessary to explain his journey.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

I want to take you on a journey with me today. If you’ve been listening to me for a while, you’re not going to be surprised by this journey at all. But I think we started something last week.

When I first learned about the Bundy ranch, we were looking into it. And it was a Saturday when it was all coming to a head. I got up in the morning, and I was watching it, and I heard in my head, ‘So it begins.’ And I don’t know what it means to you. I don’t even know what it means to me right now. But I’ve been avoiding some things for about five years that I don’t want to do. And, honestly, it’s not that I don’t want to do them as much as I don’t know how to do them.

I’m not a perfect guy by any stretch of the imagination. I’m not a preacher. I am barely even a man of God. I’m just not that guy. And I’m not a guy who leads things. I mean we started the 9/12 Project, and I said, ‘It’s yours.’ It’s just not me.

But something has begun. And what has begun is the things that I have seen coming for a long time. The anti-Semitism, the hatred, the split between us that is The Coming Insurrection, and I have not had a solution for you. I’ve had little solutions, but I have not had a solution for you. And I’ve been telling you, ‘We’re passing all the exits,’ and that has made me more and more withdrawn, mainly because I know the answer and it’s: I don’t want to do it. I don’t want to do it.

But nobody else is. And I’ve come to a place where it doesn’t matter if anybody else does it. It’s where I have to be. You may not join me on this journey, and you may disagree with me. That’s fine. There’s no condemnation. There might be anger on my part, but it’s only because I’m a flawed human being. And I say ‘anger.’ I mean, occasionally I’ll fly off the handle and can’t understand why people might not see it. And that’s okay. In the end, I might be wrong. I don’t know. But I know it’s where I’m supposed to stand.

We cannot build the future that I see and that I think you believe in. And when I say that, I don’t mean I have some vision of some utopia. It’s just the future where our kids play together, where people do judge our kids by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, not if they’re conservative or liberal or Christian or atheist or Jewish anything else – just, what is their character? We have not accomplished that, and we cannot accomplish building that future if we are constantly looking behind at the past and blaming everything on people.

Look, there’s lots of blame to go around. I had this conversation with somebody. They were like, ‘I’m not going to be blamed for this.’ Why are we talking about blame? Let’s fix the problem. How are we going to do anything if we keep looking back and saying, ‘Hey, it’s not me. You got to get that guy.’ Stop it.

There was never a rally sign. There was never a single rally that changed the world, that won a revolution. And, quite honestly, no revolution really is ever won. No revolution is ever won by guns. Revolutions that are won by guns are like the French Revolution or the Cultural Revolution in China. You don’t want to be a part of any of those. The revolution in Russia, you don’t want to be a part of that. That’s not a revolution you want anyone to fight or win. A revolution that wins and the one that you want to be a part of, is the one that ends like the American Revolution – and that one didn’t start with guns. That one started with ideas. The idea that we’re all created equal. What does that mean? That you judge a man on the content of his character, that we’re all coming to the table, we’re all the same. They had flaws. They had slaves. We don’t have slaves. We can do it this time.

And there are millions of Americans who believe that all men are created equal. I don’t care what other people say. I don’t care about the Klan. I don’t care about the anti-Semites. I don’t care about them. They will find themselves in the dustbin of history if we can stop giving them so much time in power. Let’s empower the people that actually believe all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain rights. Life. You cannot take my life from me. Liberty. You can’t throw me in jail without a just court. And the pursuit of happiness. I get to keep the fruits of my labors. I do the things that I have inside of me. And if you don’t like it, you don’t want to go along with it, it’s okay.

Those were the ideas, but they’re only won when they’re forwarded by men and women of integrity. How many of us have integrity? It’s really hard to have. They’re only won when they’re forwarded by people of compassion. How many of us have compassion? Compassion really counts when you don’t want to do it. And courage. How many of us are even afraid to say anything now because of a label? Justice and mercy. Justice falls apart when there is no mercy. Justice falls apart when a society goes so cold they no longer pay any attention, when the people fall into iniquity. The people in power know they don’t have to do justice anymore because nobody is keeping them in check. So they don’t care about mercy. Mercy does not come from a government. Mercy comes from the human heart. It must come from us.

It’s what made America great. We were good. We were merciful. We tried to do the right thing. And doing the right thing really only matters when it goes against what you want to do, what you like to do, goes against your best interests. That’s when it really counts. Doing good when somebody is watching, doing good when it’s in your best interest, that’s nice and everything, but doing good when it’s against what you want to do, that’s when it matters. That’s when there’s a man of integrity behind it.

As JFK said, we don’t do the things because they’re easy; we do them because they are hard. We have to look forward, not back. We have to do the things that are not for us, but for others. And when I say that – not for your particular group. If it’s for your group, then you’re getting a benefit out of it. You have to be doing the things and I have to be doing the things and I trust God will take care of my group.

My group is taken care of because I’m concentrating on others. And if we can get the Jews to worry about the Christians and the Christians to worry about the Jews and the atheists to worry about the Christians and Christians and the Jews to worry about the atheists, and we’re protecting those inalienable rights for all men, and we look at our rights last and look at our responsibilities first – we win. We win. And the world changes. Period.

    Glenn is on a journey, yes, and somewhere down the road Glenn is going to ask his listeners to “submit to” and “obey the superior authorities”. Glenn will do this at the precise moment when freedom-loving people should do just the opposite and continue to resist tyranny.

    Glenn is a coward with a wide, yellow streak running the full length of his spine. Whatever you do don’t look to Glenn as an example when Washington makes its move on what’s left of the Constitutional rights of Americans.

    Don’t look to Glenn as a competent adviser as millions of ignorant, welfare-seeking illegals overrun the border.

    Don’t look to Glenn to stand up and demand that the illegals line up for an eleven-million-man march out of the country.

    Don’t expect Glenn to support any real men like Cliven Bundy.

    Don’t expect Glenn to support the complete dismantling of the Federal Reserve. Glenn may run his mouth, a lot, but when it comes to action expect nothing from Glenn and his two sidekicks, Pat and Stu.

    THE whole problem is we are a flawed people only GOD know true right and wrong. I might be wrong on issues but it is because I cae so much for this country, I just et passionette. I feel I am right on most issues the one I do not know about is what would Jesus do with the Illegals. I know I want them to go, But is that Jesus’s wish, I bring up peop[le in America and I might be right but we can send them back and try to start having influence in those countries instead of half way around the world

  • Grendall R.

    Glenn, I like you, and I’ve always liked you. But I’m confused now what you’re exactly trying to say. I read what you said, and what I see a rundown on virtues, and done in a rather verbose and scattered way. What exactly are you saying to apply these virtues to?

    Glenn might change his mind if those things come to fruition. Sometimes things look one way when we are trying to see into the future, and they look totally different when we are standing in the middle of it. When they come for our guns, our money, etc., we will have to stand and he will stand too I believe when push comes to shove. The problem is these things don’t happen all at once, it is the frog being put into a pot of cold water and the heat slowly turned up. The liberals are turning up the heat slowly, we have to be ever diligent. When something happens in one state, we cannot afford to just say, well, I don’t live there so too bad for them, we have to help whenever and wherever we can….because we’re next!

    Guns were brought in to secure those ideas in the American Revolution and to break from the tyranny over us. And yes, you have to play the blame game and go to the source of the problems, otherwise, those responsible, resurface to continue with their evil and corruption. It is like treating the symptoms of a disease instead of finding and correcting the CAUSE, the root of the problem, otherwise the sickness/illness returns. It drives normal, peaceful, people nuts because we do NOT want to take on this role, it is against our nature, but forced against the wall, you submit to oppression or oppose it. As “Ozzie” said, in a great video, to the “peaceful” muslim woman wanting to focus the Benghazi discussion onto Islam, and she did not skip a beat in repeating all the revolutions where countries slaughtered their people, while the “peaceful people were irrelevant!” This was a powerful point, sad but true. No one in their right mind wants war, but evil persists if left unchecked. One always should back down from a fight if at all possible, but there comes that time, when no other options are left. Evil is a bully and will continue in their behavior if not held accountable and dealt with. Reading the Psalms, David seemed to be constantly dealing with evil, those trying to harm or over throw him, from Saul, to his own son Absalom, to his close friends who turned on him. It still sounds like what we deal with today, as Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” It appears we will always have those who choose evil over good, or at least until we ALL learn to perform Deuteronomy 30.

    What thing? Never says. Nonsense.

    Hegemony means cultural dominance. It needs to be one way or the other. You can’t have it both ways. Glenn is wrong. So wrong. Especially about people.

  • Fr. Richard Jones

    Glenn, I love you as my brother. Keep fighting the good fight of faith, love, compassion, grace, mercy, and justice! This is not a battle to be fought with guns, it is a spiritual battle, one fought on our knees receiving the wisdom that is from above, not from beneath. I support you on your journey, for ultimately it will lead to truth. God bless you!

  • stevo5000x

    Glenn… Please shut up you anti-christ. You speak with a perverted tongue.

  • Susan

    No–you’re being very selective and unfair to Glenn.

    The anti- Common Core movement that is basically endorsed by Glenn hits at the heart of the problem–the massive indoctrination system that the Left uses to create “useful idiots”.

    Get the minds of children—and the future is ALL YOURS…..and understanding that you have to change “hearts” and “minds” like a Wilberforce did—is essential to control of the future.

    It takes a generation—and to do it as the Fascists would, does not change the hearts and minds like what is needed for true “Free” cultures. People with minds like Afghanis can not be “Free”, ever.

    Understanding Truth has to happen and that is what Glenn is about—educating. He is also about putting the Truth out into mainstream culture–the Brietbart system, which is the ONLY way to capture the masses and take back control of the institutions.

    Glenn: I’ve always been behind you. From the first time I heard you. However, you need to temper your temper, and by this I don’t mean “bad” temper, but your emotions. Emotions that hinder your ability to view certain things more objectively. Your insights and discernment of current events is terrific, but your sentimental idealism supersedes it.
    You said that our American Revolution was not won by guns but by “ideas.” I submit that the genesis for it was ideas, but as you well know, the other side would not, it could, but they would not, accept them. And ultimately, against forces of evil, oppression, persecution and intolerance, the “gun” had to come out.
    Such is the nature of where we find ourselves today. We live in a parallel USA. And “never the ‘twain shall meet.” We have reached a point where no amount of reason, logic or fact, will change their minds. The single most notable difference between Conservatives and Left-wing, socialist, communist, progressives, is that the latter will absolutely not listen to reason and will forever be comfortable living with conflicting and even diametrically opposed ideas, concepts and practices. They can speak out of both sides of their mouths and not blink. Living with the dichotomies of their irrationalities is perfectly comfortable for them.
    Here are fundamental issues in which we will never agree: Never!
    Right to life – Abortion is one of their major battle cries – almost 55 million slaughtered in our country so far.
    Sodomy and Lesbianism – Another battle cry. Ironic how less 3% of the population can make and change laws so readily. More to come from this sector.
    Entitlements – Just count them and see how many we have. And a growing population which demands even more.
    Government – They want more and we want less. From the cars we drive to the soda we drink to what we say.
    Guns – Which I only use here as a representation to illustrate their desire to destroy/change the tenants and principles of our Constitution. !st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th Amendments, etc.
    Either we rebel and have some states secede from the Union, to at least save a remnant of our Christian and Constitutional Nation, or the whole of the United states will be engulfed by their philosophy, and forever transformed into just another France, or Italy, or Greece, or whatever.
    So yes Glen. Guns might in fact be our last recourse.

    Clive Bundy is an altruistic ignorant man and in my definition that is not in the category of “real men”. While it is true that the Federal Government should divest itself of all Federal Lands, and like any other land owner, should use the state courts to evict someone instead of using Federal law enforcement & snipers in a property dispute— the reality is that it has not done so and Clive Bundy only leases and does not own that land. It is also true that through Harry Reid’s corrupt influence and business deals he has caused the lease land to be reclassified as special habitat for the desert tortoise. The first best solution to this is participation in electing State legislators in at least 3/4ths of the States who will hold a convention and amend the constitution to cut the power of the Federal Government. Unless this is done in this manner there will be no unified moral authority to resist in any other way until it is far too late to peacefully limit current tyranny. Only a sudden violent overstep against innocent people by the Federal Government could unite enough people to effect the change needed. That could could be a bloody scenario. Let’s put our efforts into peaceful political participation first.

    Reading the transcript here, I keep looking for more, a bottom line from Glenn. Anyway, for what it’s worth, my own solution is that I would put every single man, woman and child illegally crossing from Mexico into the US on a bus and drop them off back in Mexico, IMMEDIATELY. No airplane rides. And yes, I’d give them a bottle of water, but that’s it. Had this been done months ago, it would have been much kinder than what we did, because it would have stopped the kids coming here and being exploited by predators and Dems (same thing). By the way, we call them “kids,” but a lot look like teens, old enough to know better than to break into someone else’s country. Crying towel and heart-on-your-sleeve diplomacy don’t work, and are a lot less kind than just doing the right thing quickly and impersonally.

    The problem with all the conservative talk show hosts is they will not proclaim that Christianity was the center of the original America, and it is where both our form of government and our initial national character came from. These men either don’t understand, or don’t want to be portrayed as small minded by embracing Christianity as the center of any revival of the American spirit and prosperity. They want to embrace the values, but don’t want to point the real problems with diversity…and there are real problems.

    Our form of government is actually based on that of the Roman Republic, with elements of Greek Democracy, both pagan inventions. Many of the Founders were not Chrisitians, they were Deists, one, Thomas Paine, was an outright Atheist who routinely wrote anti-Christian diatribes. Our court systems are based on the Roman model as well. Your assertions are ridiculous.

    You do realize that the law requires, a law passed and signed by George Bush in 2008, that any undocumented minor child that arrives and turns themselves in can request a hearing, and must be cared for by the government until their hearing date?

    Glen needs to listen to the Sunday lecture at FHU.com, the last 60 minutes for last Sunday, if it is still there, about what Mr Masters thinks is happening. Mr Masters, also mentioned it again, on his live talk show last night. The live talk link will play recordings of previous shows. If interested go to FHU.com. I see Glen Beck is just a man and can only do so much. as well as Ted Cruz, if the support is not there, he can only do so much. We have to take personal responsibility.

    Mr Masters believes the first missing Malaysia plane is being repainted, and will be used in a nuclear attack in the North East such as New York within two months. The children coming in, have diseases that will spread to Americans, for example, a long time ago, one woman was carrying typhoid, and it spread and killed one million people. I would suggest that Glen wear protective gear when helping the children. No one wants to see the children harmed, but they are already infected, and being used by corrupt people. A message needs to be sent, they can’t continue this.

    There is also mixed in those kids, teens who are gang members, this is a link to someone who sees these gang types coming to America who will mix with the gangs already here. It’s only 7 days old. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sD2S7hM_A3E

    My point of view is, there won’t be enough police to protect people, we will need to protect ourselves, Disease and gangs, means it will be up to us as individuals to protect ourselves. Glen is afraid to tell the truth and I believe wants to believe the country isn’t broken yet, and it is.

    In Oregon there were people protesting those protesting bringing the illegal here. Those protestors look like the kind of people who would sign up to take those children into their homes for the extra welfare money. I don’t believe they care about the children, it’s just a way to make money from welfare.

    Stop looking to others for answers, you as an individual need to take care of yourself and your family. I would suggest listening to Roy Masters at FHU.com for helpful information.
    Mr Masters said he thought 200 million people could die from the diseases that will be carried in from the illegal immigrants.

    I wish integrity and dignity would get the job done, but it won’t.

    Perhaps, Glenn is being inspired to move in a different
    direction that’s more faith oriented which means it’s not necessarily popular, practical, logical, rational or sexy…it’s just the right thing to do! Imagine the amazing amount of good we can do if we join forces in a righteous cause! These lyrics from “The Impossible Dream” say it well:
    …“This is my quest, to follow that star …
    No matter how hopeless, no matter how far …
    To fight for the right, without question or pause …
    To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause …”
    And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
    That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
    when I’m laid to my rest …
    And the world will be better for this:
    That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
    Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
    To reach … the unreachable star …”

    Typical inaccuracy. I can cite specific documents, specific quotes from the Founders, but actually it goes all the way back to Columbus and the Reformation.

    Seriously? Our country has plenty of laws and in particular immigration laws that Obama and his administration have ignored and outright chose not to enforce. So what… now you want to enforce this law that was enacted for a specific situation, trafficking, and not one when our border is simply being inundated with masses of illegals seeing a new life and lots of free handouts. Wake Up!

    He really didn’t say anything with conviction. It was rambling and incoherent. Glenn used to have passion and was not afraid to take a stand, but he has been losing me for a good while, culminating with this border situation. Give the illegals teddy bears and soccer balls, but send them home right away. They don’t belong here. If someone walks into my house, helps himself to stuff in my fridge, plops down on the couch and turns on the TV — that person is going out the door head first. That’s what these people are doing, walking in our back door and expecting all our stuff that we have worked hard for. It’s not right. They need to go home and make their own countries and cultures better. We are not the world’s dumping place. Obama and the Democrat socialists just want more Democrat voters, they don’t care a bit about all the millions of poor we already have, or all the new impoverished citizens they are creating. It’s all about power, and the only power we have is to fight back. Making illegal invaders comfortable is not fighting back. Accepting the invaders is what the socialists want, because if dilutes any strength we still have.

    I am not a preacher either, but I can pay attention. Lets not lose sight of what time it is… These things were foretold and the labor pains are coming closer together all the time. No, no one knows the day or the hour – but if we are to rely on Jesus’ admonition to be watchful so that when we see these things come to pass we can know that the time is approaching for the most glorious event in history. (And that won’t have anything to do with an election!) I for one want to err on the side of following the Lords teaching and I think that’s the road Glenn is trying to take most of the time. My prayers are with you Glenn. You have been appointed this platform and I don’t envy you that.

    I bet I know why he is so scatter brained lately…..
    He mentioned a few revolutions and briefed over the American Revolution that it ended in guns and violence….. He said it started in Ideas but ended in violence…..
    Isn’t that EXACTLY what is going on now?
    No matte how much the right shows that the left’s ideas just don’t work…they are pushing and pushing and pushing. The left is causing a war against the jews and dragging us into it.
    I bet Glenn knows in his heart that there is NO OTHER PATH no matter hat he does or says!!
    I hope not but maybe that is why he is lost in his words…. maybe he knows something in his heart and he does not like what he knows and sees…..

    Glenn is not a leader, by his own admission he doesn’t want to lead. However, he’s owed a great debt of gratitude for his efforts to research and expose the progressive agenda. NO, he’s not perpetuating “the problem”, obama and his gang are the problem, and until they’re defeated nothing will change.

    Yes, the American Revolution started with ideas, but it also had a middle and end. No way to avoid it.

    Glenn, I know where your mind is, and mine has been in that place many times. You’re on overload, and you need to focus. Stop promoting your many thoughts and focus on one very important aspect of your thinking. If you don’t you will continue down a path to dilution. Nothing will get done.

    Just do one thing at a time. Multitasking is your enemy.

  • Guest

    There is a lot of confusion in the comments about Glenn’s post. I totally get what you all are saying. I think he intended to make some sort of quasi-announcement then backed off. I think I can kinda see where he is going with this. Look at what he said in the third paragraph,

    “I’m not a perfect guy by any stretch of the imagination. I’m not a
    preacher. I am barely even a man of God. I’m just not that guy.”

    Seems to me his message is about to take a serious spiritual turn, even more than in the past. He has alluded to this many times.

    I am a man of faith(not Mormon) and I know Beck is as well(he is Mormon). My faith is driving force behind everything in my life and I know Beck’s faith is similar.

    So, I think his next step is toward a faith based, spiritual platform as opposed to the more secular platform he currently uses.

    What that means exactly? A Mormon minister or Evangelist?(not sure if they have those) Mormon teacher?

    As mentioned before, I am not a Mormon nor do I agree with the tenets of the Mormon faith. I have listened to Glenn for a long time, but this would be the end of the road if he takes this direction.

    My opinion…

    I understand how you feel, I have had the same thoughts, but God has told us that we are to obey the “Laws of the Land” and these people are not. We as Americans are expected to and if we don’t, there are consequences to pay. If they break the law and they are, they must pay the consequences as well. They really should be sent back to their homeland and if they want to come back to America, do it “legally.”

  • Grendall R.

    Unless I totally misunderstood Glenn (and I’m taking into consideration even the past things he has said), he’s saying we should be Christian first, American second, but he didn’t articulate it very well.

    While we are currently very angry about what’s going on at the border, we have to ask ourselves FIRST what would Jesus have us do, AND we also ask what would our laws have us do. My interpretation of this follows:

    In my humble opinion, Jesus would want us to follow the laws set by our country (i.e., deport all the illegals), and here’s how I will argue this. Hebrews 13:17 — “Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.” God wants us to follow laws made by our leaders! I also have to submit I do not accept Obama as a legitimate “leader” because he has done nothing but implement destructive policies to our country, ranging from his desire to bury us in debt, all the way to his current attempt to erase our borders and disregard our sovereignty. I see him as a traitorous deviant who has decided to use his presidency to weaken and debilitate this country, and this is glaringly obvious by his refusal to enforce our laws, laws set forth by our preceding leaders who have governed with sincerity, earnestness, and wisdom. I also see God supporting sovereignty, and I base this on the tower of Babel. God split up humanity into separate sovereign entities with different tongues, and that’s the way He wants it. This liberal agenda of forming a one-world government is anti-God, and hence, I consider evil.

    Having said all the above, I remind you that children are very dear to Jesus. Jesus did not show too many of these little preferences, but he showed affection and concern towards children, orphans, and widows. What I get from Glenn is that while we do agree the illegals have to be deported, we must not forego our Christianity, and Glenn manifested that by going to the border to deliver the charitable proceeds to the churches.

    I do not see a conflict in what Glenn is doing. I had been a very angry person when I think of what Obama has been doing, but Glenn made me stop and think — is my anger now pushing me away from God? Am I becoming increasingly un-Christian? If so, we all have to make a decision. Are we Christian first, American second? Or American first, Christian second? I advise caution in answering that question.

    So in a nutshell, we HAVE to deport all these illegals, but let’s treat them kindly while they’re here. We also have to start enforcing our laws so that this scenario cannot repeat itself in the future.

    If Glenn’s point is different, he simply will have to elucidate further on his own.

    I think Glenn is a sincere man and is looking at what is happening in our world, which we do not seem to have any control of. America has lost it’s way in the past 7+ years and we are not the proud country that we once were. Who is to blame for that?? It lies solely at our own feet and those of our leaders in Washington, DC.. We need to get back to God’s ways, following the right paths that have been laid out for us from His Word.. We have to take ownership of the things that we have allowed to happen, because we did nothing to stop what has been going on in Washington, DC… We the people have not spoken up or out and alas we have a president that really doesn’t care about America, he only cares about what he has done to weaken it. I know this sounds harsh, but these are hard times and WE THE PEOPLE need to be heard.

    Glen, you have a lot of people who think for themselves and still appreciate hearing your perspective. I have particularly enjoyed your blackboard teachings from which I learned so much. I liked your effort to reach the immigrant children. We send missionaries to South America and now they are coming up here, probably as a distraction from those who are being put into place who may want to do harm. However, I admire that you want to help them….they are strangers in our land and so much easier to access now…we don’t have to go to South America to minister to them. Even gang member’s hearts can be changed with kindness and caring.

    “In the end, I might be wrong. I don’t know. But I know it’s where I’m supposed to stand.”

    There’s too much equivocation in what Glenn is saying for me. It’s so vague I have no idea what he’s talking about. If something turns out to be wrong in the end, then it wasn’t where you were supposed to stand. And if you can’t yet determine if you’re right or wrong, don’t ask others to stand with you.

  • Edwin Westervelt

    JFK’s statement that we want to go to the moon because it is hard,is a rediculous thing to say. And to paraphrase that to apply to something else is equally so. We do things because we want to achieve an end result. Were it hard to accomplish, so be it. In all my 90+ years, I have never come across someone that seeks out hard things to do just because they are hard.

  • Ron L. Harmon, Author

    I have to agree with you Jose E. Oiler: “You said that our American Revolution was not won by guns but by “ideas.” I submit that the genesis for it was ideas, but as you well know, the other side would not, it could, but they would not, accept them. And ultimately, against forces of evil, oppression, persecution and intolerance, the “gun” had to come out.”

    I am more of an all of the above person. I believe that the truth has no agenda.
    I believe that truth untold is useless. I believe in all that Glenn said about All men Created equal and that character is at the center of solutions and great leadership, but I believe that truth needs to be told because character NEEDS it.. Truth about the klan or whatever. Truth requires no one pointing blame. It’s simply a correction of revisionism. Guilt is understood and revision is recognized where truth is known. We simply cannot unite as American people with truth under the rug. That’s why I was so impressed with America; Imagine the World without her. I’ve been unable to listen to Glenn as much as I did over the last 10 years because changes at the job give me less opportunity to listen, but I still follow, read watch occasionally and support Glenn ….. and thank him.

    I thought Glenn was on the road to become our Moses way back when. I carved a staff for him to carry, a staff of liberty. I hoped he had seen the vision of the future under the rule of liberalism, however according to him he was afraid to do what was needed and he ran from it. I’m pleased he has finally seen how it has begun. This nation is on a short road to demise and has been since Roe vs Wade was passed into law. in a little over 40 years this nation has legally killed over 56 million babies. God frowns on that, I’m telling you. Since that time God has been kicked out of our governments [city/county/state/fed. He has been kicked out of our schools, from K-12 and college. He has been kicked out of our military and the chaplains have been threatened with arrest if they use the name of Jesus. It continues with same sex marriage and open homosexuals in government and military. Ca. just had the term husband and wife banned from use. We have the worse enemy the nation has ever faced as president. He and his minions are destroying the nation.
    Yes, I am pleased Glenn has decided to pick up the staff and fight this Godlessness in our Country. I’m behind or shoulder to shoulder with him to the end.

  • Ron L. Harmon, Author

    I am with you Grendall R.: “Glenn, I like you, and I’ve always liked you. But I’m confused now what you’re exactly trying to say. I read what you said, and what I see a rundown on virtues, and done in a rather verbose and scattered way. What exactly are you saying to apply these virtues to?”
    There has been much information since 2009 to present related to this administration. I even quoted you in my book in 2012 when you were very bold and with conviction.
    Now that things are totally unraveling in America and globally, what has happen to all the ones who were willing to take a stand for America. Have they been threaten, bought off, or simply afraid they will lose their pay and benefits as a Congressman. How many scandals and Constitutional violation have to take place. Just when I thought nothing could happen that could be worse – something new surfaces. “The only thing needed for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”
    You were one of the first to interview Dinesh in the spring of 2012 on his new movie, “Obama’s America 2016″ and praising him on explaining to the European base – white folks on his views of his Father’s Dreams on Anti-colonialism.
    Now, we have the most vicious people on earth, Islam, attacking innocent men, women, and children without second thought. Of course, I addressed it in my book, much written 2005-2011 – going to press March of 2012 – thinking I could make a difference with warning of what was going to come. However, I didn’t. Yet now, when many, so many to name, that have major re-por, and are ignored – when Bill O’Reilly recently used “incompetent” to describe bho – this is very distracting – when he has had hidden agenda from first – and is so purpose driven to bring down America and weaken our Military – to levels as Oliver North said the other night – to levels prior WWII. What a copout – Israel has right to defend itself – where is America – UN – to stop abuses – threats – terrorism – against anyone who is treating people unfairly – even to death. How did we enter WWII – and to stop who. The Holocaust was bad – 6 M Jews – but who were the other 11 M who died – even so, we are about to see a global Holocaust – your money will not be so protected Glenn, nor your ranch, nor your grandchildren – we are passed the crossroads of no return. And you play the God-card a lot lately Glenn – but read Matthew 24 and Revelation. We are going into perilous times – don’t be part of the ones as Jesus describes in Matthew 24 preaching Peace and Safety. I certainly believe we have passed human resolve of man problems – and we will soon see our only hope is in Trusting Almighty God – and so did our Forefathers who paid dearly for America the Beauty and our Freedom. http://www.the7thdayreturnofthelord.com – Amazon.com The 7th Day Humbling of Mankind – The Beginning of the End of the Age – May 2012

    Much ado about this article, but even as a longtime supporter of Glenn, so often lately he gets very vague. So what exactly is he saying here? Be specific and stop talking around the bush. Unless, this is just another teaser for another book. Honestly, that is how I feel. Am sure someone will attack me for that, but I AM a fan. Used to watch his show, until that went south in value for me. Still pay $5 per month extra for his channel on Dish, so I can listen to his radio show later on DVR.

  • martha

    Glenn, you are correct when you acknowledge that the Bundy ranch episode was the beginning of something. I stated at the time that it was our Ferdinand moment. I am saddened that you lied to your audience when you took Sheriff Mack’s statements out of context, used ‘drama’ by sitting on your desk and hanging your head and saying ‘this was worst than appalling’, and proclaiming that the folks on the ranch were using women as ‘human shields’. STILL, to this day, you have not humbled yourself and asked the sheriff for forgiveness nor invited him on your show and given him the chance to clarify. I wrote him. He graciously responded with the truth. What changed Glenn is you. You chose sides and it was the wrong side. You lied. You discredited the sheriff and others on the ranch that day. The gov placed a no-fly over the ranch which shows intent on their part. THEY are the ones that had plans for violence and they didn’t want witnesses. God intervened. Make it right, Glenn. Until you do, you will continue down a slippery slope.

    And about this statement you made in this article: ‘Mercy comes from the human heart. It must come from us.’ Wrong again. Mercy comes from God!

    Like Jesus, the Beck Disciples don’t understand him. You were looking for some messiah that would save you from the liberals. But Beck is right in where his journey led him. He is speaking his mind because he can. I had a hard time looking at where he was headed when he talked about the current situation at the border, but God has taught me that to enact real change, you have to look beyond yourself to the future, and realize that what you thought was the ultimate goal in saving the country may not be the best thing. Maybe the best thing for us all is to wonder what God wants, ask Him, and work for the Master of Heaven and Earth, who wants us to give our enemies food if they’re hungry and water if they’re thirsty. Maybe this idea of government using the illegals as a new voting block will backfire when the illegals realize it was a conservative saving their lives in the desert by feeding them, when the government was nowhere around. Sometimes it’s harder to see with our heart than with our eyes. And that’s what Glenn is doing.

    Glenn, you’re looking for answer where everything is vague. When things are like that the only answer is to stand where nobody else may be standing and not to care if people are with you or not. Especially when the vague words are liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You notice how the Declaration says those words but doesn’t give any meaning about them? It’s because each person decides for themselves what those things mean.Some people think liberty means individualism and other people feel freedom when rules are a base to start from. Since what we see in the world is all illusion and how we react to that illusion is also illusion because all we are are thoughts in person form we are all making life up as we go along. It’s okay that you are standing where you need to be without knowing exactly if anything comes from it. Everyone else is too. It’s only arrogance that tells people they have to be a certain way. People need to believe that life has to be a certain way because nobody likes feeling they aren’t trendy. Because illusion is what it is makes truth vague and real all at the same time. Stop looking for answers outside yourself, you’ll only drive yourself nuts.

    You seem to have the IQ of most low information voters. Are you
    pro-choice too? If so it is very sad that your mother was not if she was

    I think it is time for you to retire. It appears that it is all too much for you to defend this country any more.
    Treason should never be aided by any American. God and Country
    can be one without giving up one’s belief’s. Many places in the Bible the Lord told the
    Israelite’s to go into cities and fight. Jesus himself tore up the money changers in the Temple.
    Remember the pastor who Hitler hung
    because he stood up against evil? I think if you cannot stand the heat get out of the kitchen

    I understand your position on the kids coming from Central America. Even though they are a minority of those coming over the border. They are the (justification) for deliberately destroying our nation and our kids future and security. Not that I wouldn’t place my family in a measure of risk to save those in real need and greater danger. But perpetuating the crisis by condoning NON ENFORCEMENT OF THE BORDER ASAP! IS FOOL HARDY AND WILL GUARANTY DISASTER FOR ALL! If these gang members are used to create chaos and violence or amplify it as our country collapses what will happen to them? IT WILL END IN A LARGELY RACIAL GENOCIDAL FREE FOR ALL! It doesn’t matter if we want it or not we won’t be able to stop it because the majority of those COMING HERE ARE RACIST TOWARD WHITES AND BLACKS BY DEIGN! SAME IS TRUE OF A LARGE SEGMENT OF BLACKS (NOT INCLUDING MY CLOSE FRIENDS I SING WITH). THEY HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED FOR DECADES WHITE MEN STOLE THEIR RELIGION ETC. I WATCHED THE TAPES MY BLACK FRIENDS GAVE ME IN THE 80″S FROM A SO CALLED PROFESSOR! THUS THE KNOCK OUT GAME, FLASH MOBS, AND INCREASE IN BLACK ON WHITE VIOLENCE! I am distressed for those who I fear will be terrorized for their skin color and plan on protecting them if possible. THIS IS BEING EXASPERATED BY LARAZA, ACORN, JACKSON, ETC. THE BORDER CRISIS IS FUELING THIS FIRE AND THOSE COMING ARE NOT GOING TO FIND SAFETY AND COMFORT! THEY WILL CLOSE THE BORDER ONCE THEY FIGURE OUT THEY’D BE BETTER OFF WHERE THEY CAME FROM! SO WHILE I GET WHY YOU ARE REACHING OUT TO THEM I FEAR YOUR PLAYING INTO THE HANDS OF THE FEDERAL MOB.

    THE POINT OF ALL OF THIS IS TO MAKE OUR KIDS PERPETUAL SLAVES. THINKING WE WILL PROTECT OUR KIDS FROM IT WITH OUT FIGHTING AS OUR FOUNDERS DID IS FOOL HARDY! WHEN WE CAN NO LONGER RESTRAIN THEM BY THE WAR OF IDEAS AND PUBLIC OPINION WE WILL BE FORCED TO FIGHT OR SURRENDER!

    Ah, Glenn. I see your gray hair and I contemplate my own. I remember “simpler”
    times, too. Times where people thought in terms of absolutes and what was uttered in church was as valid as every word of our Constitution. People BELIEVED …
    in something. Hippies, war protesters, crime, drugs, all this was on the other side of the tube and far away in a world my parents protected me from. For all the turmoil of the changing 60s they were the end of the idyllic times in America. Heck, I remember Mexico being a beautiful country that had some pride in itself and it hurts so bad to see how far it has fallen. Talk about Paradise Lost!

    While I absolutely sympathize with what you seem to be trying to do with your broadcasting company and the great, dedicated, intelligent crew you have to do it with, the fantastic guests you can regularly bring on … I look back on what America WAS and how I knew her as a child through young adulthood and I have to come to the realization that the attitudes and beliefs we were raised with came, almost, from a vacuum that was created and passed on as a point of honor by our predecessors. That age, that “Golden Age”, was destroyed irrevocably by The Information Age.
    What we knew of the world prior to the IA was old information, at best (think about dusty encyclopedias we did our school reports from), and heavily colored and often falsified information at that. Our predecessors did think for themselves but it was within a very sharply defined set of rules and information. Now we have a world, a universe even, of information and most of it seems to conflict with everything else that exists out there. We’re the most educated people the world has known that is almost completely ignorant of what is going on around us due mainly to information overload. Most people just want the world to go away for a few years so they can catch their collective breath – come on CMEs!

    Why do “home schooled” kids score so consistently higher in every subject? The information they get is also available in the public schools, the libraries and the Internet, so why are they better “schooled”? Why do they have better math skills, a better grasp of historical events, grammar & etc? Heck, why did people that could barely read or write have the ability to articulately discuss the ins and outs of the Lincoln – Douglas debates back in their time? It’s simply because educational information was closely controlled and disseminated by the FAMILY first – for better or worse – and children were protected from the World at least until they were much more capable of dealing with it. Children were also taught responsibility early on and were expected to act intelligently or kept quiet until they could converse respectfully and semi-intelligently with any adult – when they weren’t being kids. Kids were expected to grow up and mature quickly, mainly because life was uncertain and you never knew when you would find yourself left on your own. You HAD to prepare for all the eventualities of life and do your best to overcome them. Does this sound like ANYTHING that is expected of today’s children? Not in THIS America!

    The only way, Glenn, that we could ever get back to what WAS a great country, a great world even, is to go BACK to the times that MADE it all great. The hard, dirty, gritty and, above all, dangerous, uncertain world that polished and informed our predecessors is where “greatness” came from. That world demanded, in no uncertain terms, the intelligence and dedication to personal integrity and excellence like nothing does today simply to survive or certain punishment ensued! Many did not make it and if you didn’t get a blue ribbon it was because YOU DIDN’T EARN IT … more often than not. Justice, while sometimes delayed, was often swifter and more certain than it is today and I’m not saying that because it was taught by Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels – it was a fact that society demanded and very often got if it was pushed far enough.

    So, what to do with your broadcasting company? Keep fighting the GOOD fight;
    keep informing a new generation that has no frame of reference for what you’re
    talking about WHY they are living in a country that is as wealthy and advanced
    as it is. Reveal our scars, our mistakes and what solutions our country came up with to advance ourselves morally and intellectually and how far we yet need to go. And, above all Glenn, don’t fear any division this would create. Nature hates a vacuum and its modus operandi toward balance is through opposing forces. We’ve
    gone so far in one direction we HAVE to start swinging back to some central
    normalcy that nature approves of or we wipe the slate clean and wait for history to produce another America somewhere else.

    Simple answer: What would Jesus do? Do that. In all situations with guidance by the Holy Spirit. Keep this mindset. This country was built on that foundation. A nation is its people. Time to be America in the midst of what is happening in America. Don’t be Barsabbas. This is the journey we must travel. Jesus did not heal everyone, he was led by his Father. Do likewise

    What does the Lord require of mortals? That we 1) do justice; 2) love mercy; 3) walk humbly w/Him. (paraphrase of Micah 6:8)

  • zemla

    That last line was very insightful :)

  • Gaylon George

    This quote from Glenn’s explanation in the third from the last paragraph, “And doing the right thing really only matters when it goes against what
    you want to do, what you like to do, goes against your best interests.
    That’s when it really counts.” I understand this. When I first read it I didn’t see it, then I read it again, and it makes sense on a personal level. I’ve experienced this many times. And it’s personally satisfying to know that you have done the right thing, even when it hurts, especially financially.

    If every person in America would adopt this philosophy, then this would work. To believe this is to believe in Utopia. The problem is, that will never happen. We don’t have to be like the democrats to win, but we do have to be in the fight. I believe Glenn is being prophetic and hoping enough people will agree with him that it will make a difference. I believe that can make a difference, but not enough to win the war against liberalism and progressivism immediately. Conservatives have to win elections, and then stick to their conservative guns to foster change in government.

    The corruption has been there since the beginning of time. That’s why term limits are needed. Read the book, “Extorsion, How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets”, by Peter Schweizer and the Government Accountability Institute. You will NEVER look at politics the same again. It will open your eyes in a way you never thought possible about what is really going on in Washington, D.C.

    We need all points of view, Glenn’s included. We can all learn from those around us. We don’t have to agree with them on everything to learn.

    As far as things go politically, I cannot buy into this part of Glenn’s philosophy. I’ve been involved enough politically for many years in the process to know this will not work. Unfortunately, the democrats have written into their platform that they do not care about facts and truth. Their main drive is how they feel. Any mature person knows how fickle feelings can be. They can be exactly the opposite of what Glenn was talking about. I.e., you do what you want to do, what you like to do, what is in your best interests. That’s how the democrats operate. They have to be defeated, one election at a time. Conservatives have to continue to stand up and be counted, even when it hurts to do so.

    Glenn said America started with an idea. That’s true. But the American revolution was won on the battlefield. The founding principles had to be fought for and we had to win the war. Not that there was not a continuing exchange of ideas, but without guns, America would have been run over by the British. I know it’s only a movie, but just consider what happened in “The Patriot”. One of my favorite movies. When Mel Gibson just talked and only protected his family because he didn’t want to get involved, look what happened to one of his sons. It wasn’t until he took on the responsibility for the larger cause that things started to change in favor of America. It cost his family dearly to be involved, but it was costing his family more NOT to be involved. Without people participating in the fight to make America independent of Britain, none of us would be enjoying the freedom and liberty we do today.

    Philosophically, I agree with Glenn and we should be working daily to make the world a better more friendly place, but evil persists and deal with it we must. Those ideas are good for the world, especially in the long run. We don’t have the time to philosophically change the world and the United States before it collapses at the rate Obama is destroying it. We need stronger more direct action to turn the tide NOW! Conservatives of integrity must win elections and then apply the philosophy Glenn is espousing to govern effectively.

    We’ve seen way too many good men go to Washington and be corrupted. Having term limits, doing away with massive pensions and the trappings of what power can do to a person, these are just a few of the changes that have to be made in Washington D.C. to bring our government back to where it started during the American Revolution. I don’t remember specifically who said it when our Declaration of Independence and then later our Constitution was written, but the comment was that they believed that the government that they formed would be lucky to last 50-75 years, basically due to the sinful nature of man. Given that observation over 200 years ago, for us to have lasted this long is truly a massive accomplishment. It’s time for an overhaul and a return to the principles that founded our country.

    So I agree with Glenn philosophically, except for one thing. Liberals and progressives, comprised mostly of democ(rats) and unfortunately rinos, do NOT care about the facts or the truth. You cannot find common ground with anyone who will not acknowledge the facts and the truth. Hence, you cannot “fix the problem” as Glenn suggested, because they do not think a “problem” exists. It’s the ‘head in the sand mentality’ for the uninformed liberal, of which there are multitude, and the ‘I want all the money and power I can accumulate’ mentality of those in control, that prevent any ‘fixing’ of problems from occurring. Hence, conservatives win and uphold the principles of our Founders who pledged life, limb. property and their sacred honor to give us what we have today.

    If you try to get along with progressives Glenn then it means capitulation. I will not give in period. I am not compromising on what is right and I don’t care if it causes a permanent split. When you talk of mercy, remember that if you forgive the evil doer, you do so at the expense of the one aggrieved. I can have mercy when I am the only one being effected. I have no right to force that mercy on others. In the 1800′s we hung murderers after one trial and within a week of being convicted. Is that the justice you want us to go back to? Because if it is, it won’t happen. On the matter of splitting, it can only happen when all of the false props we have erected are knocked out from under us. People will not give up their bennies willingly. They will hold on to them even though they are a weight which is drowning them.
    But to give you a little encouragement Glenn, just remember how many times Jesus said “Fear not” and I don’t. I don’t have a fear of the garbage coming, I just hate it for the waste it is. But life is good and I can count on Christ. That’s all that really matters in the end. Just remember that it’s easy to be merciful with other people’s lives, but it’s a little different when it’s yours on the line. Shalom

    solution to, health care insurance – insurance must be blind, offered to everyone at the same price with no exceptions. You cannot differentiate on gender, age, prior health or future expenses ; next fund must be nation wide coverage, lifetime loaded discounts for length of membership, so the longer you pay the less you pay & lastly pricing must be made public and be clear final total that can be compared. None of this one bill with 10 charges for the one thing… A waiting room is a waiting room, its not a service charge in its own right, as is a bandaide or bandage. If you want to fix my arm the final price is just that! IM AN AUSTRALIAN AND WE HAVE MOST OF THESE THINGS, OUR HEALTH SYSTEM COSTS LESS AND HAS BETTER OUTCOMES, YOUR WELCOME TO COPY FOR FREE!!!

    AS AN EXAMPLE; my fund for compressive private hospital coverage is $70 a month with a $1000 max excess a year. Extras is another $35 and it covers dental, chiro, scripts, optical… well anything thats not covered by the private cover… Ive checked USA coverage thats to your obama care website and something similar for a single adult is x10 as much with execss of $5k or more!!! And I’m not even mentioning i can go PUBLIC HOSPITAL for free, but with a wait based on URGENCY.

    Oh and Glen you did the Christian thing going to the border to help. God will reward you but your followers won’t. I know you want stronger borders to keep people out but your wasting your time, your much better off to design the system to grow the PIE and not reduce the number of people getting hungry. If the Indians had this policy you wouldn’t be having this conversation and this is something our evil right wing nutter PM is trying to copy here too. So i feel your pain, as do the HUMAN BEINGS being treated like criminals for wanting a better LIFE.

    I had just about given up on America…until I read the comments. Even the dull and ignorant, they too have a voice. It also appears to me that the old adage is true, the devil leaves you alone if you are not doing anything right. Apparently, Mr. Beck is trying. And so are we. I Believe in us…trolls and all. I have to admit they were funny.Don’t you? Still we must learn what is most important to us and we all lean on each other to figure that out…and then, we have to decide each within ourselves what is most important. We can rebuild. But we have to find a heart for it first. The heart of America is where her greatest treasures are…and i suddenly find that I will not falter, I will not fail. I will believe in America.

    The law must be changed. It is probably unconstitutional. As soon as this action (of sending minors across our border) started, the House should have taken it up and at least tried amending or killing the law. Most of them don’t have the guts, of course, because rescinding anything that sounds as though it’s pro-children sounds bad to all the ninnies out there with all “heart” and no brain. And, since most officeholders today are not citizen-legislators who serve for a term or two as a service to their country, but consider public office a job and an opportunity for themselves and their families and friends and supporters to profit themselves, and so strive to stay in office as long as possible no matter whom they hurt, common sense legislation seems almost impossible. But we need at least to begin to “dare” considering such a thing. And many of the people who are concerned about the things we speak of in places like this, and talk about what should be done, need to get up off their duffs and start involving themselves in local politics, that’s where all this begins, and realize that when we avoid our duty to serve, the (for the most part) wrong kind of people step up to be our “leaders,” and they are a self-serving lot of pied pipers who will lead us in very bad directions.

    The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole…Their secret is that they have annexed from governments, monarchies, and republics the power to create the world’s money…” THE MONEY MASTERS is a 3 1/2 hour non-fiction, historical documentary that traces the origins of the political power structure that rules our nation and the world today. The modern political power structure has its roots in the hidden manipulation and accumulation of gold and other forms of money. The development of fractional reserve banking practices in the 17th century brought to a cunning sophistication the secret techniques initially used by goldsmiths fraudulently to accumulate wealth. With the formation of the privately-owned Bank of England in 1694, the yoke of economic slavery to a privately-owned “central” bank was first forced upon the backs of an entire nation, not removed but only made heavier with the passing of the three centuries to our day. Nation after nation, including America, has fallen prey to this cabal of international central bankers.

    When you’ve got 47% (probably more) on some sort of govt dole, the unpublished unemployment number with more people looking for govt assistance, good luck with changing anything. When govt and banks direct an economy for lowering living standards, the aftermath will be more people on the dole who would always vote to retain their benefits out of survival. When it comes right down to it, people will give up freedom for survival.

    Glenn,
    Sometimes the simplest concepts are the hardest to understand and accept, when understanding requires a complete paradigm shift. That’s what we’re faced with, and the only solution is the truth.

    Like it or not, this nation is an empire. And the only method ever found for maintaining an empire is the ancient Roman weapon of occupation, “divide et imperium”, or divide and rule; the most brutal and deadly weapon of mass destruction ever devised. This weapon is also used in other countries, especially the socialist leaning and totalitarian ones.

    Please notice, whenever the federal government is in trouble, ethnic discord increases. As long as people can be made to feel more afraid of their neighbors than of the government, the federal government is safe.

    Also, please notice the hotspots of ethnic cleansing around the world, including the Balkans, Africa, and the Middle East. The single driving force in every one of these hotspots is the end of either an empire or a totalitarian government. Tension between ethnic groups is kept just below the boiling point, to keep attention away from the government. Inevitably, when the government falls, ethnic cleansing follows.

    When governments wish to increase ethnic tension, they tend to build a lie around a kernel of truth about some ethnic group. Then, when it becomes necessary to decrease that tension, that lie is covered up by another one. Only by reaching the truth can the cycle be stopped.

    A good example of this tension is the anti-Semitism you referenced, sometimes referred to as “the International Jewish Conspiracy”. This phrase is the name and tagline of a propaganda campaign created by U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward, with the help of his friend, New York Times editor Horace Greely. It’s well documented that Seward often admitted he hated our Jewish Confederate Secretary of State Judah P. Benjamin more than any other person on earth. After the fall of the Confederate government, Benjamin escaped to England, where a British Member of Parliament, also a Jew, helped him rebuild his legal career. Benjamin was so successful he was appointed Queen’s Counsel, and his work is still taught at Cambridge today as a cornerstone of British law. Meanwhile his friend, Benjamin Disraeli, was appointed Prime Minister and is still considered one of England’s most important politicians. The more successful these two became, the greater the intensity of the propaganda campaign. This propaganda was also disseminated in Europe and was used with great success by Hitler. It is still this same propaganda which is driving anti-Semitism today.

Your actions caused this innocent person death threats. I hope the court serves the punishment you deserve. Man up and be responsible for your actions!

    Great comment Jose. I do think, and I could be wrong, that Glenn’s point was that the “ideas” came first. Commendable ideas; moral ideas; Godly ideas! The guns had to come out in “defense” of those ideas. There is no question that ANYTHING of value will require a fight. I don’t know all of the answers, but I do know that “we the people” bear the responsibility of “allowing” the powers that be to skillfully divide us into small, powerless, self-centered groups; that they have no reason to be fearful of, or any necessity to be accountable to! I don’t believe in regret, because it is in essence, looking back. Looking back should only be done to recall “victories”, thereby adding power, resolve, and energy, to current battles. From my perspective, the end is Victory, not because the battle looks victorious, but, because in the end, with God, we win! If, the end is victory, then the process is victory, even when it appears to be anything but! God bless!

    Sadly, I believe we get the government we deserve, whether by default through apathy, or through moral decline,not necessarily the one we vote for. The government is a reflection of society itself. When we disapprove of it, we must first examine ourselves. I hope you aren’t against Christianity, although there are many “representations” that surely deserve ire, and disapproval. Someone is not a “coward”, or a “champion”, just with a keyboard, but consensus and unity, can bring change,…..excuse me, “good change”! God bless!

    You need to remember when Glenn thought he could attack the golden calf while still on FOX. Seems not long after, he was leaving the show. I’ll bet Glenn had some visitors to help him see the “right” way.

    We have allowed our “leadership” to skillfully divide us into small, powerless, self-centered groups, that they have no reason to fear, or feel accountable to. We must all learn to be concerned about the good of all, and not necessarily just those of our own little group. I still hope, by the grace of God, that we can, and that we learn the consequences of our lack of unity. If they can divide, then conquering is easy and inevitable!

    Great documentary; watched it some 3 years ago. I do not agree with their “fix”. Giving government control of money can be even more dangerous and susceptible to politics than the system we have now, which actually could work very well were there some honest laws and ethics. Remember, FDR changed our money so as to make the “people” responsible for the debt while at the same time creating the pathway to the military/industrial machine and the social welfare machine we have today.

    Yes I agree the fixes leave a lot to be desired but the docu is a good intro to folks that may not be aware of just how the fiat system works(Fed reserve etc)and of the forces behind the control of these major monetary systems and the effects it has on day to day life

    I like this journey Glenn.Whether I agree with you or not.I know your a good man trying to do good and what’s right and I agreed with JFK as well that we Americans always did what was hard not what is easy.It challenges us and it makes us better people and we do it together and we win together.The journey we take is about the future not the past and that’s what we owe Kennedy and the others-the future not the past and we in the present must look ahead the way Kennedy did with our characters not our politics.Leaving hate and division behind us and United We Stand moving ahead in tomorrow’s hopes.Let us talk even when we do not agree because regardless of what we disagree we have more that unites us than what divides us.Let us take this journey and inspire others to do it as JFK would say,”Let us begin.”Thanks for listening.

    Glenn has to follow his own heart and be true to himself. He instructed and educated so many of us whch was manna from heaven. Now it is time for us to take over and do something instead of spouting hot air and complaining about Glenn and what he does or does not do
    He is a great patriot, a good man. A “gentle man” (gentleman) and a scholar and his heart is filled with love for mankind which is as it should be —- ideally.
    I commend him for all his hard work. Perhaps later he will come back because he knows that we need him.
    And that the country needs him!
    And that the world needs him because evil is growing in cracks and holes and living in people’s minds and hearts.
    i do understnd where he is coming from and my only words to him at this point are GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS GLENN BECK!

    Glen, I have always held you in high regard. If I had a brother I would want him to be like you. I think you are off base with this. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in showing everyone respect and being kind to all, but what you are describing is John Lennon’s view of the world as expressed in his song “Imagine”. Listen:

    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people

    Living for today…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do

    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace…
    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one
    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world…
    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one

    To get what you say you want, Glen, that’s the way it would have to be. No heaven, no hell, no countries, no borders, no religion, no God the Father, no Jesus, nothing to die for means nothing to live for. Living for today only. And after all that man would still have a sinful heart and love darkness rather than light.

    Is that what you really want? Is that what God wants? Didn’t Jesus say in Matthew 10:

    34 Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth;
    I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

    35 For I have come to part asunder a man from his father, and a
    daughter from her mother, and a [a]newly
    married wife from her mother-in-law—

    36 And a man’s foes will be they of his own household.
    Glen, we were not put here to be everybody’s buddy, we were put here to bring peace between mankind and God. When that happens and we are at peace with Him, then and only then will we have peace with each other.

    My problem with Glenn and others like him is that they give us much information and have collected millions of dollars, but nothing seems to change

  • Dusty Bottoms

    Thanks, Zemla. I always appreciate honest opinions.

    It was late last night and I kept asking myself if I was getting off on some tangent with my tome. But, while I tried to catch as much of Glenn’s radio show as I could today, I was surprised to hear how much of his interview with Mr. D’souza paralleled what I’d written. I haven’t seen any of Mr. D’Souza’s material but want to see his latest movie very much. It’ll be preaching the choir but I’m ok with spending my money on that.

    The IA basically meant that nothing is hidden any more and what is can be fairly well deduced from revelations of historical surroundings. It has been a major factor in the decline and failure of faith in everything from the churches to government – anything that asks us to trust them. I think it is part of what Jesus was talking about when He said “all things will be revealed” … or is that in The Revelation? In the final analysis, or at least so far, I don’t blame Jesus or God or anything like that for the misinformation but I do blame those who were in charge of safeguarding it through the ages abusing their charge to manipulate and control things for their own benefit.

    Everything I wrote was on a very general level. I could think of several exceptions for the points I mentioned but the main thing that has changed with each successive generation since I was born, 1957, has been the decline in the role that parents play in raising their kids to the point that many parents have simply given up trying to teach or have much of any control of the information that gets to their children. There are too many holes in the walls of our homes now days not to mention lack of privacy. Luckily in my area of West Texas the schools don’t SEEM to be the rabid purveyors of progressivism … yet. But we can see it coming.

    Perhaps that is when martial law is enacted. Govt will be able to place people in camps at which point it will become labor for shelter and food.
    For several years now there has been much talk about the dollar crash. It has not happened yet, but it may well be because Washington and the Fed are trying to install a new currency in some organized fashion to avoid extreme disruption.

    that, Jerome Corsi and The New American, among other

    grateful for, is the Bible. Thanks for your patriotism.

    My thoughts exactly!! The buses should be used strictly to take them back to where they came from. Give them each a sack lunch and water and send them on their way. That would help slow things down for a while.

    Ah yes, that super (public/privately owned) highway partly under foreign control with limited access for citizens? Eminent Domain involved. Perhaps now people can understand the need for the Kelo decision that Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in her dissenting opinion basically called this decision the stripping of private property ownership rights. Now think BLM? Land as trade for debt?
    Farmers came in tractors to protest.

    But govt is all about environmental concerns? Only to take away peoples’ rights. Agenda 21, get people off rural lands

    This highway issue bubbled up at the time Perry was running in the Repub. primary for presidential nominee. This issue did not help him and perhaps contributed to his “deqath knell”.

    Glenn does not need to concern himself with the Fed as that is already coming under a significant change from some serous competition. The $$$ as world currency will end only to be replaced with a new kind of “global” currency still in the control of the money changers. Look East, look East.

    I think so, too. GB needs to go. He seems miserable. He has had a total personality transformation. I think money is part of it. Counseling is probably something he would never consider. Religious fanantics don’t believe in it. Though I’m not sure he is as religious as he claims.

  • Rebecca Cheney

    You are right, Glenn. We are all our Father’s children… brothers and sisters. We ARE our brotherr’s keeper. This is not about fighting to win. This is about loving and looking out for each other inspite of differences. Sometimes a soft, gentle voice and quiet manipulation is far more affective than loud, bold actions. The bully never wins in the end. It is time for us to have each others back. After all, we know who wins in the end. Find the good in everyone around you. It is there. That is a good start.

    That’s what he used to do. Focus on one thing at a time. Now each day is a whole new world and he bounces all over. Bet it’s interesting to work for him;). And I’ll bet with all that is happening, many of his employees are terrified about having a job. I feel certain a lot of people that have been long time members are bailing. Of course he will be set for life..

    Glenn, strong work. The Liberals are using your Soccer Balls to illegal aliens campaign very effectively to help smuggle more illegals into this country.

    Strong work Glenn, have another swig of whiskey dude, you suck.

  • landofaahs

    The problem with you Glenn is that you want to have it both ways. Our enemies are using the innocents against us and we cannot look at them that way. So you have to decide Glenn if your children, grandchildren, and great grand children are worth the bitterly uncomfortable task of realizing the enemy represented in the “children” that befalls us. They will use any weapon against us that they can be it child or whatever. I cannot save the world, Jesus sets that before men. But I can, I hope, point to the extreme retardation of the democrats.

    Poor Glenn has lost his way. I feel very sorry for you. If you don’t have affirmative direction then you are listening to the wrong spirit. I have followed you for over 10 years now. You have been a source of inspiration to me. I’m a student of God’s word first and that is where I put my trust. I listen to man and test the fruit. God has been great to me in providing me with wisdom and the gift of spiritual discernment. I’ve noticed a change in you over the past year. I was hoping and praying that you would find your way back, but now you are 180 degrees opposite of what you once was. I believe you have been corrupted by the humanist, atheist, homosexuals, multi-culturists and multi-faiths. You have succeeded in building yourself a big tent but have forgotten your own rule of the strong tent pegs. You have to build your house on “THE ROCK”. “A little leaven (sin) leavens the whole loaf”. “If thy eye offends thee pluck it out, if thy hand offends thee cut it off”. Well, I’ve finally had enough and had to cut you off. I’ll pray for you Glenn and hope you will find your way back. But for now, I see that you are going down a very dark path. And all that are following you are being led down that same path.
