Countdown to Restoring Love: "That a nation may see Wilmington"

After Restoring Honor, Glenn wanted to go to find a place where he could address the real people in America and not deal with politics and politicians. He wanted to speak to families, small businesses, and people who knew what it was like to struggle in America at a time while the corrupt and dishonest were getting bailouts from the White House. When his Ohio-based documentary crew told him about Wilmington, OH, a town that had been ravaged by the loss of thousands of jobs when DHL closed their hub, he knew that was where he was supposed to go.

During the radio show broadcast in Wilmington, Glenn took time to explain his experience in going to the Wilmington Prayer House, a 24/7 room for prayer.

GLENN: There was a musician there playing music while people were praying. It was so unbelievably cool, and I was talking to the lady who started it, and I actually sat at one of the chalkboards, and I said a prayer. And I wrote on the chalkboard my prayer that the nation would see Wilmington. And I don’t mean that they would see the trouble, they would see the strife. This is a town that’s 12,000 people. They lost 7500 jobs. Not that they would see that. They’ve seen it. You watch 60 Minutes and see that, that’s all they show you. What they need to see is the people. They need to see the joy. They need to see the teamwork. They need to see the people coming together. And as I wrote that on the chalkboard and I walked back into the back and I gave the woman who started this great place a hug and she said, "You know, I started this a few years back." And she said, "I just, you know, I just stood where I was told to stand." And she said, "It came to me I should start a prayer center here in town." She said, when I had that thought, I had the impression that it would be the start of something for the nation. That it would — that the eyes of the nation would see this and it would inspire them and we would get through our tough times."

[Applause]

GLENN: And I took her back over and I said, "Let me show you what I just wrote on your chalkboard." I have a documentary film unit that actually — they’re all Ohioans, I don’t want to base them in New York, it will taint them. So they’re all here in Ohio. And I got a call — the reason we’re in Wilmington, is I got a call about, I don’t know, six months ago, and they said, "You have to come to this town. You have to see this town. Can we take some extra time and shoot some things in this town so you can see it." I said sure. So we watched this little mini, you know, eight- or ten-minute documentary on Wilmington in my office when they got back. And I said, "We gotta go there. We have to go there."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
