Glenn welcomed GBTV viewers to his new home and new studio in Dallas, TX – and he had a powerful message to share his loyal fans. One year ago, Glenn told everyone watching his show on FOX News that he would soon be setting himself on a different course, removed from the constraints of mainstream media. Today, almost one year later, he revealed what he meant when he said that with the unveiling of the “American Dream Labs” and Phase 2 of GBTV!
“Hello America,” Glenn said from the new studios.
“What started out as a little radio show ten years ago , done by a guy who was flat broke, has turned into a massive media empire. But we are just now in a where we can start to do some of the things that I think are important to do.
“I am assembling a team of people from all walks of life, all backgrounds, political pasts and faiths. Here, in the home of the Alamo, we are going to draw a line in the sand and then we will draw new lines across the sky.”
“Over time, you will meet some of the people who have joined me. Some entrepreneurs, some educators, engineers, entertainers, and some budding philanthropists.
“But all dreamers with the same dream: Tomorrow can and will be better.”
Glenn said that he knows that people listening to his show have had enough. They know what is wrong with the country and they don’t need or want the endless cycle of political pundits pumping up the problems but not offering any of the solutions.
“We continue to hope and pray we’re wrong but it’s not enough to pray and hope. We must act,” Glenn said. “When you hear His voice, it’s time for you to get off your knees and get to work.”
Glenn said that he and many members of his team have left their comfort zones in order to move to Texas and be a part of the solution.
Over the next few weeks, Glenn promised to reveal more of the plans and dreams that he and his staff have planned for their new home, for GBTV, and for America – but there was one thing he wanted to share. The doorway to “Stage A” – The American Dream Labs.
“This, as you will come to see, will be the epicenter of my work,” he said.
The American Dream Labs studio is bigger than the studios of The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live, and as of today is over twice the size of the biggest studio in cable news.
Glenn said, “But this isn’t one show. It’s not a couple of shows, and it’s definitely not cable news. For what I have planned, cable news is too small and too small minded.”
Glenn said that The American Dream Labs will be a place where imagination can run wild without fences of limitations. A place where questions can be asked and answered without fear, and where Glenn, his staff and his audience can experiment with finding solutions.
“It is a place where we can dream again.”
Glenn said that with all the new laws and regulation, dreamers in America are being stifled, punished, and demonized.
“We need to grow a new generation and we can’t wait for others to do it.”
Glenn ended his introduction the GBTV Phase 2 by invoking two speakers.
First, he paraphrased JFK’s speech about why Americans choose to go to the moon.
JFK said, “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”
Finally, he invoked one of his personal heroes, Walt Disney. Much like Disney welcomed Americans to Disneyland, Glenn hopes Americans would look at these words as a welcome to Mercury Texas and The American Dream Labs.
“To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America; with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
