#3 Going Global with Restoring Courage

Restoring Courage

This year Glenn formed a unique bond with the people of Israel and Jewish people all around the world when he led the charge to stand with the people who have been the most persecuted in all of history. Run out of cities and countries time after time and facing another disturbing series of developments revealing the old hatreds are rising once again - Glenn was moved to make a declaration to the world: we said never again and we want to show we meant it. How bad were the old hatreds? Glenn toured Auschwitz prior to the Restoring Courage events in Israel and received a powerful reminder of just how real evil is. Check out Glenn's full travel blog HERE. Could it happen again? The unrest in the Middle East is laced with toxic brew of anti-Semitism and violence. With the political elites having chosen their side -- the Palestinians - Glenn wanted Israel to know that they are not alone. Glenn also wanted to bring awareness to the United States that although Israel is some 6,000 miles away, our fates are uniquely intertwined. They don't call Israel and America 'little Satan & big Satan' for no reason. Radicals want us destroyed. Want to be on the right side of history? Stand with courage -- and stand with Israel. Check out highlights from the events HERE.

#2 Restoring Love Announcement/Mercury One

After Restoring Honor last year in Washington DC, where hundreds of thousands came to the Mall in DC to express their desire for America to experience another revival, Glenn truly thought he'd never do another event this large ever again. He was wrong, clearly, as he ended up doing Restoring Courage in Israel this year. Again, Glenn thought that was the last time he'd do an event on that scale. And once again, he was wrong. Glenn announced exciting plans for July 2012 - a three day event in Dallas, Texas called Restoring Love. Americans came together in DC back in 2009 to show they wanted people of Honor. Thousands stood with Israel to show they were ready to stand with Courage. Coming July, Glenn hopes that once again hundreds of thousands will flock to Dallas to show they are ready to WALK. To be the hands and feet that will lift this country out of stagnancy. If you really believe government is NOT the answer - then YOU must be the answer instead. Can't have it both ways. Ready to SERVE? Then we'll see you in Dallas this July!

Glenn also announced Mercury One, which is the core of everything Glenn Beck will do from here on out. Mercury One is the charity arm (501 c3 pending) of Mercury Radio Arts - but it is really the heart of the company. Mercury One's mission statement is, "To inspire, organize and mobilize individuals to improve the human condition physically, emotionally and spiritually with malice towards none and charity for all.” We are our brother’s keeper. We are to care for those who cannot care for themselves. We were not meant to hand that task off to some giant bureaucracy and then go about our merry way eating Doritos and playing video games. We were meant to be the hands and feet. Find out more about Mercury One HERE.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
