Media covers "Restoring Courage"

As we get closer to the three Restoring Courage events in Jerusalem, media outlets around the world are covering Glenn's travels and the support that Glenn is getting from people throughout the world. The latest? An Israeli paper has picked up on Israel's Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger blessing of the event, as well a campus group organizing support for the event.

Arutz Sheva reports:

Speaking to Rabbi Metzger, Beck described the event as a “gathering of people fromall over the world who wish to stand for Israel and for the Jewish people.”

As he did when he addressed members of Knesset, Beck said he was inspired by the words of Biblical Ruth, who followed her mother-in-law, Naomi, to Israel from Moab and promised her that “Your people shall be my people and your G-d shall be my G-d.”

“That’s what needs to be said,” Beck told Rabbi Metzger. “We need to say that, so we are gathering together.”

Beck asked Rabbi Metzger to take part in the rally and deliver the Prayer for the Welfare of the State of Israel, to which Rabbi Metzger agreed.

“I thank you and I appreciate your visit,” the rabbi told Beck. “[I appreciate] what you’ve done, what you do and what you will do to our holy land and our nation because we are suffering from bad public relations.”

Earlier this week it was announced that Herman Cain, a Tea Party candidate for president, plans to join Beck in the rally.

Meanwhile, Jewish News of Greater Phoenix reports on campus organizing and support for the event:

Conservative political activist and former Fox News commentator Glenn Beck might be the common thread, but "Restoring Courage" event organizers say the message is bipartisan: Support Israel.

Boaz Witbeck, founder of American-Israeli Alliance, a pro-Israel student group based at Arizona State University West, is working to organize a pro-Israel rally on ASU's Tempe campus on Aug. 24. The event is open to the community, and Witbeck said he expects more community members than students.

Rabbi Arthur Lavinsky, spiritual leader of Beth El Congregation, and Pastor Eddy Paul Morris, Arizona director of Christians United for Israel, will speak at the rally, named Restoring Courage ASU. The gathering will culminate with a viewing party of Beck's Restoring Courage rally in Jerusalem that will have taken place earlier in the day.

Witbeck, the former vice president of College Republicans at ASU West, said that he has invited a number of local politicians - both Republicans and Democrats - to speak, but as of Aug. 8, none had accepted an invitation.

Lavinsky said he plans to talk about the Jewish connection to Israel and the moral imperative of supporting Israel, "a democracy in a part of the world which is essentially an ethical cesspool."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
