Glenn unveils national food drive during "Live It" special on GBTV

Tonight on GBTV, Glenn introduced viewers to part three in a four part series of shows that reveal a plan to fix the country. First it was commit, then activate, and now live it. Glenn had another major announcement to go with “live it”, unveiling an ambitious plan for a national food drive aimed at sending tractor trailers loaded with food to cities across the country.

Glenn started the show by discussing the dangers of regulations that are currently strangling our ability to help others. Glenn referenced the story of a man who drowned in a shallow pool of water because regulations prevented them from jumping in to rescue him He also discussed new laws that prevent people from feeding food to the homeless.

Meanwhile, more and more people find themselves looking for aid with only the government to turn to. As regulations get stricter, the harder it becomes to help others.

“What have we been talking about on this program?” Glenn asked.

“Put your money where your heart is. Be charitable. Live a life of honor - love your fellow man. Be a source of hope for someone else. Be a force for good.

Be a shelter so the whole world will know that they're not alone,”

“Government is the exact antithesis of that. It says 'you can't do this or you can't do that.' It says 'don't do that, we'll do it for you'.

“In some cities it's illegal to give homeless people something to eat. In New York food has to meet strict guidelines for it to be donated and they actually refuse food if it doesn't meet those guidelines. Food with 'too much salt'. Could you imagine throwing away, say, a box of salty pretzels right in front of someone who is starving? How would you explain that to them?”

So what do you do when the world is upside down?

Glenn had been praying for an answer – and he found it when he remembered a meeting he had with Paulina in Poland. She was one of the “Righteous Among the Nations”, and she and her family who saved the lives of hundred during the Holocaust and World War 2.

Glenn told the story of how she came across a young Jew who asked her for food, and Paulina and her family made the decision to help despite the risks they faced. Pauline brought food to the young girl the next day, and they didn’t stop. And it all started with a bowl of soup.

Glenn said that she made the decision “not to go over the cliff with the rest of humanity.” It wasn’t that she became righteous, she just maintained her humanity and desire to help others.

“The one thing we can all agree on: when government is telling you 'don't help' -- deep down we know they are wrong. We can feel it. But if we don't say anything, if we don't stand up and say 'I will not comply' and do what is right, eventually you'll kill off that instinct.”

“It fundamentally changes us,” he said.

“That is the problem we're facing today. America is great because America is good. The minute we let 80,000 pages of regulations keep us from doing what is right -- it's over. We become England where they're letting people drown to death right in front of their very eyes because the rescue team doesn't have the proper certification to jump in water that's deeper than 6 feet,” Glenn said.

So how does it start? With one bowl of soup. And tonight, Glenn presented his own plan for everyone to contribute their one bowl – a national food drive organized by Mercury One.

Glenn’s plan is for people to donate, in whatever way they can, to the food drive in order to load one tractor trailer to go to each of the following places that are either in need or where regulations have restrained donations: Detroit, MI; Navajo Reservation, NM; New Orleans, LA; Las Vegas, NV; San Joaquin Valley County, CA; New York, NY; Orlando, FL; Philadelphia, PA; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Wilmington, OH.

“There is massive need. And this is your chance to show the federal government that their services are no longer needed,” he said.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
