Restoring Courage Recap 4 with Highlights from GBTV!

Read Parts 1, 2, 3

On August 24th, 2011, Glenn welcomed the world once again to Israel. What began at the coastline of Israel and moved then into the outer city of Jerusalem, ended as the final Restoring Courage event moved to the Old City of Jerusalem.

After a blessing by Rabbi Riskin and the Israeli National Anthem, the Mayor of Jerusalem took to the stage to offer some of the show’s opening remarks. Speaking of the unprecedented freedom experienced by Jerusalem under Israeli rule, the Mayor declared, “Jerusalem will never be divided again,” a statement which received a huge ovation from the stage.

It was then that Glenn took to the stage to talk about the three faiths that all have such strong ties to Jerusalem.

“We meet today in a very small plaza, on the edge of a modest mountain, overlooking a shallow valley, by a tiny stream. This place, so modest, so small, is where God chose to first reveal himself to mankind. And God fills it with His majesty. For as long as man has known God, he has come here, to Jerusalem, to touch the mantle of the divine.

Three faiths. Three people. And while our faiths may take us away from each other, we always come back to Jerusalem,” he told the audience.

“This plot of earth may be tiny. But it has been large enough for three faiths… and the pilgrims and faithful who come here. It must be as big as God’s heart. And it must be open to all,” he told people watching in person and all over the world via GBTV.

As he spoke, the music of each of the three faith played that represented the Jewish faith, the Christian faith, and the Muslim faith.

As the music faded, Glenn welcomed people form all over the world to the Jerusalem.

“There are more than 1,000 people here, and there are more than 1,400 viewing parties around the world watching this live. Some of them are watching in places where our message of courage and freedom and truth is not welcome. Places like China and Cuba,” he said.

“People have risked their lives and reputations to come here today. They join us from Pakistan and Qatar. We have members of the EU parliament here, and other seats of government.”

“So whether you have joined us in person, or electronically, whether you are sitting in comfort and freedom, or under the darkness of repression, whether you are in a home, a hut, or a house of worship, please know that we thank you, and we recognize your courage.”

In the vein of Restoring Courage, awards for Faith, Hope, and Charity were given out to th Fogel family of Itamar (posthumously), the Jewish and Arab co-owners of Maxim restaurant, and Rami Levi.

It was then that Glenn took to the stage to give his final remarks.

The speech was very much the culmination of many of the thoughts and themes that Glenn has been building on since 8/28 in Washington, DC. Rather than tell people to turn back to God, he brought the faithful to God’s throne in Jerusalem.

While his message was one personal responsibility, a common theme, Glenn took aggressive new steps in shifting gears from a passive observer and commentator to an active participant and leader in a new global movement to encourage others to stand up, be active, and couple rights with responsibility.

“If we want to be endowed with rights – real human rights, we have to act with responsibility. We must not be comfortable with rights. We must be comfortable with responsibility. We cannot use our few short years on this planet enjoying our rights… we must do everything we can living by our responsibilities to our fellow man. Rights and responsibilities. The two go hand-in-hand, arm-in-arm, together,” he said.

“In the coming days, I want each of you to print them, read them, carry them, and make them a part of your lives. Share them with your family and friends. Remember all that God has done for you, teach these lessons to your children, and obey God’s word. And join me on a historic march towards human responsibility.”

Glenn plans also announced his intentions to take his message global

“Some people call Israel an apartheid state. I reject that. And so immediately following this program I will fly to South Africa, which is where apartheid actually existed. I will broadcast from Cape Town tomorrow morning to remind the world what the evil of apartheid really looked like,” Glenn said during the event.

“And I will learn from the people who conquered the hatred, ignorance and bigotry and who chartered a peaceful course for a new South Africa.”

“Then on Friday I will fly to South America to plead the case of human responsibility to a group of nearly 5,000 local leaders from all over the continent and ask them to join me in standing in defense of Israel, the Jewish people and responsibility.”

“Finally on Sunday, I will speak to 5,000 Americans in Dallas, Texas. I have chosen to end my week in the town where I will headquarter the charitable division of my company, Mercury One. Dedicated to the idea that one man, inspired by one God, makes a difference.”

“This trip will end where a global moment begins.”

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
