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:

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
