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.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

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."
