Glenn discusses the future of TheBlaze TV

With the big news hitting that TheBlaze was now going to be carried on traditional cable and satellite providers, starting with DISH Network, Glenn spent the opening moments of the radio show discussing what this means for the audience and his company.

"Today TheBlaze has announced and the New York Times front page of the business section has announced that TheBlaze TV is now officially a television network as well as an Internet television network. Today we are debuting on our first carrier, DISH. In fact, if you are at home in some parts of the country, it has started already," Glenn said.

TheBlaze can now be found on Channel 212 for DISH Network subscribers, as well as on

"Why is it conservatives can only have one choice?  You got Fox News and that's it," he said. " If you like Fox News, that's great.  But that's your only choice if you're a conservative.  We think that there should be more, more of a choice.  And I don't know why that, you know, anybody thinks that they get ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, CNN, and you get Fox.  What do you say WE surround them?"

Ever since Glenn left FOX News and launched TheBlaze TV, fans have wondered why he took the network to the internet rather than create a normal channel.

"We can explain finally today we did not want to go back on television until we could own our own network and not be beholden to anyone," he said.

"We want to be independent.  I am the, I believe, maybe the only person that doesn't owe a dime to anybody that has now their own cable channel."

Stu added, "Most people, most of these networks, they get on TV, they try to get some audience on TV and then they try to get a few extra eyeballs on the Internet and, you know, they ‑‑ it's a secondary thing.  For us it was the reverse.  We were able to build the entire foundation with the subscribers, well, and it's you guys.  We were able to build it that way.  So we have that foundation and there's no need to be beholden to anyone else because the foundation is the viewers."

Glenn then spent a few minutes diving into the future of the network, as well as the principles that are guiding it.

"We want you to know that TheBlaze and the network itself is entirely different, and we will be in Cincinnati to unveil the next step on this Saturday and that one revolves around an action center," he revealed. "I told you from the beginning we're not going to be a place where you watch the news and you get pissed off about it.  You don't watch the news and we're going to give you things that you can do about it.  This is not going to be some place to where you just don't have context and you don't have perspective and you don't have anything to do about it.  That's the difference."

"What's changing the world is the Tea Party.  What's changing the world is the 9/12 project.  What's changing the world are people online right now that are connecting with each other, Facebook, Twitter.  That's what's changing the world.  And we're not going to be somebody in an ivory tower that is pontificating.  We are going to do our best to link with as many people as we can that think like us, that understand the world is being redesigned.  And we're going to redesign it with you, not with some giant global corporation that doesn't give a flying crap about you or the country.  We have certain beliefs and standards, and our standards are, our beliefs are that America is good.  It is a force for good.  Our belief is in truth, not a party.  But a principle."

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.

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?
