#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.

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:


On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.
