Glenn: Before you stand up, you MUST know what you are standing up for

Four things to commit: 1) Commit to a higher calling – Read the Pledge of Nonviolence HERE; 2) No finger pointing; 3) Personal Responsibility – Read the Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities HERE and MLK’s Commitment Card HERE; 4) Be hopeful.

For weeks, Glenn has been promising that this week of shows would mark a change in GBTV from a network to a verb. He would be taking action and asking the audience to join him.

Glenn explained that you have to commit to a code and decide what you believe. You have to activate not only yourself, but those around you into taking action. You must live it and “mean what you say and say what you mean”. If you believe in small government and also want to help others, you must be the stop gap. And you must create a culture that inspires and fosters decency and goodness.

And tonight was step one - commit.

To begin the show, Glenn reminded listeners what he told them when he first announced GBTV - that the network was not a place for passiveness but a place for people to be active and involved. "GBTV is a verb" he said back in 2011.

Why the need for the shift? Even though Glenn said that he and his company and his fans are all moving at lighting speed, progressives have a 100 year advantage.

"We're moving at light speed but everything that goes into repairing all the damage done by progressives in the last 100 years is daunting to say the least," he said.

"Tonight we begin to roll out what i've been asking you to be patient for, but the first 4 steps are really important. We're going to unleash the verb GBTV was designed to be," he explained.

"Let me tell you a little story. I teach teenagers at sunday school. We were doing a study and I asked them, 'so what does this tell us?' It was scripture about one of the prophets standing up and the people rejecting and then killing him. They said 'it means you have to stand up for what you believe in' . I said no, you are missing a step. Before you can stand up for what you believe in, you have to know what you believe in and then still before just knowing it , you have to make a declaration," Glenn said. "You have to commit."

"I want you to know with a humble and contrite spirit that I'm sometimes embarassed to meet viewers and listeners because some are doing so much more than I am in your public your professoinal and your personal lives. And I am no different than you. I have members of my own family that are not as committed as you. I have the same family issues that you have. Some don't believe me, some do. I'm bluffing on how to raise my kids - so im asking if you are committed because you know what, we're making this up. Were doing things that no ones ever done before in history. So when I ask you these questions I'm asking this of myself too," he said.

"Are you really committed to restoring america to it's founding principles? Are you really committed to reducing the size and power of an out of control federal government?"

"If Romney happens to beat Obama, will you exhale and say 'Whew, that was close!' and then retire back to the couch for doritos and Dancing with the Stars?"

"This is bigger than Obama. He's stepped on the accelerator and is driving towards the cliff at alarming speeds, but the problem existed long before obama got into office. Obama is, believe it or not, what I'm worried about the least. Because if we don't fix ourselves first, it doesn't matter who is  president, we'll eventually find ourselves in the same exact predicament."

Later, Glenn discussed the theory of the 10% - that 10% lead in one direction. Some the right way, some the wrong - with 80% in the middle.

"This audience is not the 80%. Youre the 10%. Will you commit to lead and  be the 10% who lead the 80% to the right exit?" he asked.

"If you think you aren't qualified to lead, you are wrong. The true mark of a leader is not what money or power they have, but rather what they don't have. Ego. Arrogance. Self interest. Leaders have a heart dedicated to servitude, and a calling greater than oneself. You must be that 10% because there will be another 10% leading people in another direction and that direction will be revolution," he said.

But how do you get into action? Glenn aid out four steps for people to take action and commit: 1) Commit to a higher calling – Read the Pledge of Nonviolence HERE; 2) No finger pointing; 3) Personal Responsibility – Read the Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities HERE and MLK’s Commitment Card HERE; 4) Be hopeful.

A big focus of the opening monologue was Martin Luther King, Jr. and the movement he led in the sixties. To explain further, Glenn had his niece Alveda King join him in Dallas:

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
