Glenn reviews 'The Harbinger'

Over the weekend, Glenn read Jonathan Cahn’s bestselling book “The Harbinger: the Ancient Mystery that holds the secret of America’s Future.”

The book shows how all the warnings before Israel’s great fall in 732 BC are repeating themselves today in America.

“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning. The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America—with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy,” reads the book’s description. “Hidden in an ancient Biblical prophecy from Isaiah, the mysteries revealed in The Harbinger are so precise that they foretold recent American events down to the exact days. The revelations are so specific that even the most hardened skeptics will find hard to dismiss. It sounds like the plot of a Hollywood thriller – with one difference… it’s real.”

So many people had been telling Glenn that he had to read this book, he finally decided it was time to see what it was all about.

“I read it over the weekend and I'm doing my homework on it,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “My first impression is it's absolutely right. But I haven't, I haven't done my homework on it.”

“I think it's – I think it could be misread as, you know, God's punishing America. No, that's not what he's saying,” Glenn continued. “He's saying that we have made a covenant and we've broken it and God's trying to wake is up.”

Glenn asked Pat and Stu to also read the book this weekend, so they could discuss their thoughts this morning. While both agreed it was a good read, Stu wished Cahn didn’t intertwine the facts from the Bible with a fictional story.

“The delivery system is through a story,” Stu said. “Like it's a fictional story that tells you things that are true from the Bible… To me the fictional story aspect is distracting to me.”

Glenn still called the book “an incredible story and an incredible nine things.”

“We're doing our homework on it because I want to talk to the author, and I'd like to do a special on it because I think those nine things are absolutely right,” Glenn said in regards to the nine harbingers Israel received before its destruction.

Ultimately, Glenn believes the book puts forth a conversation about God that we don’t otherwise talk about in this country.

“We don't have any way in our society to have a rational conversation about God stuff. And that's why he puts this I think that's why this author puts it in a story line,” Glenn said. “Because you don't have any way to have a serious conversation. Because we've so relegated that to crazy talk. You have to. You have to have that conversation. Have to find a way to.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
