Glenn: "The Truth has power and the Truth is His"

Anti-Semitism, a growing evil that weighs heavy on the heart and mind of Glenn Beck, has been rising inside our own shores in recent months. Anti-Jewish vandalism in Brooklyn in mid January and arsonists who targeted a Rabbi's home in New Jersey, are just two examples amongst a handful of anti-Semitic attacks to take place in the tri-state area in recent months. 

Attacks like these caused Glenn to stay in New York following his trip to Europe. Glenn gave a speech at a Fundraiser for the Gush Katif Museum last night in Brooklyn, NY. 

Gush Katif was a cluster of 21 communities in the Gaza Strip which were vital to Israeli border security according to the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. In 2005, however, Israel withdrew from Gush Katif under then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Along with displacing 9,000 residents from their homes, Israel lost a thriving agricultural zone with 4,000 greenhouses. Last night's event served not only as a fundraiser for the Gush Katif museum in Jerusalem, but also to assist traumatized families still hurting from their forced evacuation. 

After being introduced to the stage twice as “fearless,” Glenn humbly informed the attendees of the banquet that this statement was an “out and out lie,” saying “I am afraid, but more afraid of going against what my God tells me to do. I am more afraid of what the world will look like if people don't stand up. I don't want to live in a world that has gone insane again. Israel is in trouble—in grave, grave trouble, but, more importantly, the Jewish people are in trouble yet again.”

Referring to the mad-man who the world ignored in 1938 until it was too late, Glenn explain that this time around not only are people ignoring the mad men, who are telling us exactly what they are going to do, but the media is complicit. “It is dangerous,” Glenn said.

A central theme in this speech and one Glenn says changed his life, are the words of Thomas Jefferson in a letter to his nephew, Peter Carr.

Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.” Thomas Jefferson

So many Americans, and people all around the world, take the media, their governments, and even their professors at their word—failing to notice that there are holes in their arguments where the facts should be. People are no longer “questioning with boldness,” and because of this evil growing amongst us and very few take note, and those that do question until they find the truth are called “controversial.” Beck noted the insane stigma the media gave him for saying that George Soro’s was not a friend of Israel. He was even referred to as a “Jew-loving anti-Semite.”

Glenn took some time on this public stage to clarify his previous statements, saying “let me apologize for that statement… I don't think I said it loud enough. Georg Soros is not a friend of Israel’s, and if people would question with boldness, they would realize that this administration is not a friend of Israel's either.” Glenn followed that up by pointing out that “that is not a political statement, that is just simply the truth.” 

“It has happened 109 times,” Glenn said, in reference to the persecution of the Jewish people. “Why? Because no one will recognize the seeds,” he added.

Glenn, who has a deep passion for history, traveled as far as Auschwitz last summer trying to discover how to stop evil from growing amongst seemingly good and decent people. He found the answer to his question after speaking with an elderly woman, Paulina, one of the Righteous Among The Nations. Her answer for Glenn? First of all, God. Second, You can’t just become righteous overnight. The righteous just chose not to go over the cliff.

No one hopes to be wrong more than Glenn, but his questions is, “What if I’m right?”

“Evil is growing and people are asleep,” Glenn added, citing Occupy Wall Street as an example. The media ignores the evil in these protests; the assaults, the rapes, the violence. “It will get worse if we don’t stand up and stand together,” Glenn said.

Glenn held the event Restoring Courage this past summer in Jerusalem to send a message to the world that Israel was not alone, and that he stands with the Jewish people. Last week, in the midst of the Obama Administrations attack against the Catholic Church, Glenn traveled to the Vatican to speak with officials of the Church. Like Glenn said in August, that he “stands with Israel,” he sends the same message to the Catholics.

Glenn centered the focus on the new “civil rights movement,” one that he has been building up to unknowingly for the past three years, studying different leaders of civil rights movements: Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Today's leaders have taken the words of these leaders and twisted them to fit their own agendas, noting that today's “civil rights movements” is a “sham.” 

“The left says that so-called civil rights leaders of today say they stand for women, yet they help hide the rapes at Occupy Wall Street. They say they stand for the oppressed, and yet they stand with the killers at Itimar, they say they're for free speech…believe me I know this one to be true… they will silenced, slander, smear or destroy anyone who differs with them.” Glenn continued with a powerful statement saying, “many times I find it difficult to see the different between the so-called civil rights leaders and the terrorist, and the killers, the dictators, and the thugs, they claim to be against.”

Glenn points out that, “This is why they will fail.”

“The Truth has power and the Truth is His,” he added.

“It is an honor to be born, because we have the opportunity,” Glenn reiterated. “It is a time for giants.”

“You can hide a Jew from the wickedness of man, but you can't hid a man from the justice of God,” Glenn said. Fundraisers, words and speeches, are no longer good enough. We have to trust God, unite and stand together, defend one another's freedom, and be a force for good.

Glenn, who has recently transitioned from being the man sounding the alarm to a leading a movement of service and charity with his new non-profit Mercury One, knows the magnitude of the forces he is standing against, and that without God we won't make it. 

Glenn used the example of Joshua, from the Old Testament, who had to have faith in God against unbelievable odds. Glenn said, “The walls of Jericho came peacefully down. All they had to do was follow God, even when it didn't make any sense.” Adding, “they linked arms and marched… (sound familiar?)”

Like God told Joshua before he moved forward with his seemingly impossible feat to bring down the walls of Jericho, courage and truth in Him are the only way to overcome the obstacles that lay ahead.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

“We have a chance to be our highest self,” Glenn said, “but it is time for action.”

Being George Washington's Birthday, Glenn concluded by reading a letter he wrote to the Hebrew congregation in Rhode Island.

The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship.

 It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for, happily, the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. 

It would be inconsistent with the frankness of my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my administration and fervent wishes for my felicity.

May the children of the stock of Abraham who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants—while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree and there shall be none to make him afraid.     - George Washington

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
