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.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
