Restoring Courage Recap Part 1


On August 21st 2011, Glenn Beck kicked off the Restoring Courage event with a live broadcast from the Caesarea amphitheater in Israel. People from all over the world came to join Glenn, David Barton, Pastor John Hagee, and Dr. Mike Evans. It was a packed house with over 3,000 people in attendance.

The event opened with the phenomenal singing of Vernesa Mitchell, followed by Glenn arriving on stage to a huge ovation as he welcomed not only those in attendance, but also those around the world tuning in from over a thousand viewing parties and on GBTV! People were tuning in not only form Israel and America, but also Brazil, Egypt, China, South Africa, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and more!

David Barton was next with his focus on the history of Israel and Judaism. He told the audience that they were literally “sitting in the middle of history.” Barton said, “It was right here in this very theater where you are now seated that Paul was put on trial. Had you been here 2,000 years ago, you could have witnessed his trial.”

“It was here in this theater in June 1961 that a stone was found with an inscription dedicating it to Tiberius Caesar from “Pontius Pilate, Prefect of Judea.” This was the first ever archeological proof of the actual existence of Pontius Pilate, and it was found right here in this theater,” he added.

Barton the discussed the importance of the Jewish people to civilization, and used the words of John Adams to emphasize this connection. Barton quoted Adams “I will insist that the Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation.” Adam continued, “[They] preserve and propagate to all mankind the doctrine of a supreme, intelligent, wise, almighty Sovereign of the Universe, which I believe to be the great essential principle of all morality, and consequently of all civilization.”

“Israel is the birthplace of monotheistic religion – of the worship of God Almighty, in which we will all participate tonight,” Barton added.

As Barton exited and Glenn returned to the stage, Glenn explained some of the things that had led him to Restoring Courage – and described a moment of divine providence that led to an important addition to the Restoring Courage event.

“I want this summer to change your life,” Glenn told his children earlier in the year. Glenn asked each of my children to read the story of one of the “righteous among the nations.” He told his children, “Tell me the story of someone who saved someone during World War 2.”

Glenn chose to read the story of Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place. He loved it so much that he insisted his wife, Tania, read the book as well. It wasn’t long after that he got a phone call from a man named Mike Evans.

After reading The Hiding Place, Glenn received a phone call from Dr. Mike Evans. “When I got that phone call from Mike I need he had to be here to share his story and the story of Corrie ten Boom”.

Mike Evans tale was one of personal tragedy and triumph. His mother, a Jew, told him when he was young that Christians kill Jews and that Jesus is dead and he shouldn’t “dig him up.” He was beaten in school for being Jewish, verbally and physically. Evans took his mother’s words to heart, and believed that Christians were out to get him.

His relationship with his father was even more abusive, His father, a Christian and an anti-Semite, would beat his mother and call her a “Jew-witch” and call Evans a “bastard”. His father beat him as well.

At the age of 11, Dr. Evans was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up. His answer? “I want to be 20.” His only wish was to stay alive until he was twenty years old.

Evans then told the story of his first prayer and the moment his life changed. He asked God, almost mockingly because he had never felt love, “God, why was I born?” And then something happened. The room turned white as snow and out of a glowing light, two nail scarred hands reach out to him. He saw a man who said, “Son, I love you. I have a great plan for your life.”

Evans said that ever since that day he has a new mother – Israel, as well as a new father, the God of Israel.

As the event continued, Glenn was joined by other leaders of faith including Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, Pastor Mullins, and Pastor John Hagee.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
