CREATE: Glenn reveals ambitious plan to work with musicians, artists, filmmakers and more!

On GBTV tonight, Glenn revealed the final piece of the solution to fix the country - create! He didn't just discuss the immorality and filth in the current culture, but also the reaction for people of values and faith to just run away and withdraw from the culture rather than to create something different. So he came up with a solution - one that involves him working with artists and musicians in aggressively pushing back with messages of hope and goodness. And, most importantly, he encouraged viewers to join him, not as passive observers but as active artists and creators in whatever way they could.

“America has always been about creating and doing,” Glenn said as welcomed people to the final night of special shows focusing on fixing the country.

Taking a break from the news of the day, Glenn chose to instead reflect on the history of American ingenuity to start the show. He ran through some of the incredible American inventions – focusing on everything from Edison and the Kinetoscope to the iPad.

“Edison saw the good in the invention. He was an amazing man -- he never stopped thinking and trying -- no matter how preposterous the idea seemed. For example, he actually tried to make concrete furniture such as beds and chairs. Even concrete pianos. Needless to say that one didn't work out, and neither did his 'mechanical cigar'. But that didn't stop him. He once said, ‘I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.’ He just kept creating, and sometimes he got it right.”

“He's also is the first to record the human voice,” Glenn said.

And since Edison, the world has now gotten to the point where the iPad can access and play music without wires from anywhere there are cell towers. Glenn’s concern, however, was what content and music and art was now out there in the culture that could be consumed on this technology.

“While our technology has progressed, our culture has regressed,” he said.

WATCH him explain the cultural problems below:

Glenn talked about how many of the Billboard Top 100 songs have title like “F**k You” and “S&M”, while shows like Glee feature high school kids dancing in lingerie. Meanwhile, shows that talk about God, faith, and family have been left behind, and the very few that remain are treated like jokes. Glenn even discussed his own professional difficulty discussing faith and the risks he has faced because of it.

“I've actually lost (radio) affiliates because they say I talk about God,” he said.

But how do you push back against the current path of popular culture?

“It's everywhere. You know it and I know it. Teens engaging casual sex. Violence. Profanity. Nudity. We know the problem, it's not hard to miss,” Glenn said.

And what is the typical response of conservatives? They complain about it and threaten to throw the TV out. But they don’t actually try to change it, in fact they have given up in a lot of ways.

“This is the one area where we've abandoned our entrepreneurial spirit. Instead of being like Edison and trying 10,000 ways to be part of the solution we just throw our hands up in the air and wave the white flag,” he said.

“We're against something instead of being for something. And meanwhile, artists are thrust into a toxic atmosphere where if they aren't willing to live on the cutting edge of culture and create filth you don't get a job.”

“Why are we just giving the culture over to those who seek to promote filth? Why are we just complaining about it? How about we do something about it. Yes! That's what we are going to do here. Create.”

“Right now our idea on culture is 'It's bad. I don't like it, it's not good for myself or my children'. And we distance ourselves from it. That doesn't create anything. America moves forward when people are creating,” Glenn said.

Meanwhile politicians, the studios, the networks, the record industries are working with outdated systems that don’t work and are doing everything they can to punish small businesses and punish the creators, but Glenn promised that is about to change.

“This day is the biggest challenge of all four and arguably the most important,” he said.

Glenn said, “Creation is what moves us. It's what informs us. It's what motivates us. In many ways it's who we are. That's why the Marxists of the early 20th century laid out a detailed action plan to change culture. You can change the way people perceive things and the way they act. We know this is true because we've seen it happen in our own lifetime, right before our eyes in real time.”

Does Glenn expect people to go out and buy a studio and start making TV shows and movies? No. But Glenn wants everyone to recognize how they are creators.

Now, Glenn admits that he had a slightly different plan in store for tonight’s show, one that will be revealed soon, and that lawyers and studios and more stopped him from being able to execute it as planned. However, he did want to give viewers an hint at what he was doing to push back on the current status of our culture.

He discussed his plans to find musicians who had a message that celebrates faith and American values rather than some of the filth that is out there currently. He also discussed plans to get involved with films and how he and his team were developing new systems to create media outside of Hollywood and New York.

He explains below:

And he also introduced the first artist, Kalai, who would be performing at Restoring Love:

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.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
