Make a commitment

On radio this morning, Glenn read an email from a listener who decided to change their life:

"On Friday the 14th I overslept, caught the last 30 minutes of the radio show.  One of the guys said just put everything aside this weekend and read this book.  I thought, it's cold here in Illinois, I can do that.  So I began to read on Saturday.  I stopped when I got to the "God‑given capacity" part of the book.  Why this stopped me more than any other chapter was because I had heard that most of my life, especially by my mother and my best friend.  What's your God‑given capacity?  It's more than you think.  For the last 30 days, my life has been an absolute whirlwind of unexpected revelations since I took that first step and made a commitment.  This book has served as a confirmation of everything.  Now if I just shut up and listen, it works.  I'm not new at listening to God.  That's not a new concept.  It's a new concept for me to listen when it's something I don't want to hear.  I am born to seek.  After I posted, I left and got the ‑‑ I got beer.  I had only had four on Saturday night.  Yes, and I got behind the wheel of a car.  It was close to 1:00 a.m. after I had closed the book, and I went to a local station.  When I pulled in there, there was a young guy in his mid‑20s or so sitting on the curb with a light coat, a hat and a torn blanket.  He caught my eye because I had never seen anyone homeless at this gas station.  We live in a good area.  As I walked in the door, I asked him if he was okay.  That's when I noticed his lips and hands were blue.  He said he was okay; thanks for asking.  Two steps inside the door, I was hit with the same power that I had felt when I was in Wilmington at the House of Prayer.  I went and I got all the food from the gas station that was left.  I picked up the hot dogs and a couple of bags of chips and some drinks and I took them out to him outside.  He was shaking from the cold, but I swear I never even saw him chew the two sausage hot dogs that had been left.  I went back inside and I grabbed a 12‑pack of beer and I put it on the counter.  That's when I saw gloves at the counter for sale.  It was though somebody had just said, this is important for you to start to fill your soul.  So I bought them.  I went outside to give them to him and he told me I had already bought him food and he was okay, he would be okay.  He's just waiting until the morning for the bus.  I guess the mom in me took over.  I picked up a cold blue hand and put his cold fingers and hand into the glove telling him, I didn't feel sorry for him.  Just, everybody needs some help now and then.  I would hope that someone would do the same for my daughter.  My daughter has been gone from home going on six years and she hasn't made the best decisions and our relationship is strained.  But he didn't need to know all that.  When I put that second glove on this man's hand, I realized I was showing him more compassion, a stranger, more compassion than I was showing my own child because I was mad at her.  Before I knew it, I asked him if I could pray for him.  I don't pray.  I don't pray before I eat.  I don't pray before I sleep, let alone pray for somebody with five people looking out a window with their noses at the glass.  I wasn't even sure I remembered how to.  But I'm a good one to wing it.  So I prayed with him.  I handed him the money then for my beer and a couple more bucks.  I told him get a hotel room down on Pershing Road.  I went and got in my car.  I saw Sherry through the window.  She was behind the counter.  She had my beer.  I just kind of gave her a hand across the throat and told her I didn't need it.  I drove off.  I cried so hard, I slobbered all over myself.  I came home.  I went through every cabinet.  I poured all of it out.  I threw away every bottle I could find and I curled up on my couch and I cried until my head hurt.  But I think my soul just needed to be washed.  And this was my cleansing.  Today I begin to fill my soul.  It's 5:00 a.m."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
