The Oval: The next forty days

Take the 40 Day, 40 Night Challenge

Good afternoon.

Earlier this summer, there was a big debate about whether God has any place in the Democratic Party platform.

You see, when the Democrats met in 2008, God was there.

But in 2012, He got taken out.

There was a little uproar.

So they had a vote to put Him back in. You saw the video, and you know the rest of the story.

I wonder what God thought of all that.

None of us can know the mind of God, but I think it’s safe to say that God wasn’t too worked up about it.

God doesn’t depend on political party platforms.

God doesn’t need a majority vote.

God doesn’t need our permission to enter our lives.

God exists. God loves. And God is always there, whether we want him in our lives or not.

That is an incredibly powerful idea: God is with us, always.

Even the most powerful men have depended on God.

Every man who occupies this office finds himself turning to God, at one point or another.

Each one of them.

No matter how confident. No matter how powerful. No matter how mighty.

The most powerful person on the planet works here.

And when things get tough, he will bend his head in prayer.

Put his face in his palms and drop down.

And he will ask God for guidance. For truth.

I’m so grateful to live in a nation where the president prays.

I don’t care who sits in that chair.

As long as he recognizes that there are some moments beyond his wisdom… beyond his power… moments where God is necessary, that is good enough for me.

Because God is necessary for everyone.

If God is there for presidents, he is surely there for us.

He is in signs seen and unseen…. In moments of pain and moments of joy.

He moves the heavens and the oceans… and yet He can be found in a quiet breeze.

And so I am asking you today: Bring God into your life. Make room for Him.

You don’t have to be the president to call on God’s wisdom.

God is there for the big moments. And He is there for the little ones, too.

I am asking everyone, starting today, to take time to rebuild your relationship with God.

You don’t need a crisis.

You don’t even need a church.

Just take a moment. Reflect on everything you are… everything you have been…everything around you.

Ask yourself: Am I responsible for it all? Am I the master of all that comes before me?

Is all this mine… and mine alone?

The answer will humble you.

But the answer will open your eyes.

God is the author of our story.

Only God has the wisdom to see where it will all lead. Only God has the grace to show us the way…. If we are willing to follow Him.

I have asked everyone to spend some time – even just one minute a day – for the next 40 days and 40 nights. We have 40 days and 40 nights until the election.

These are days of great anxiety, great peril, for this nation.

We need God’s wisdom. God’s guidance. God’s love.

We need to serve God.

Have faith in Him. Discovery his Truth. Commit acts of Charity.

Every day. Every night. 40 days and 40 nights.

You know the reference.

You know that Noah rode his ark for 40 days and 40 nights. You know that Moses ascended Mount Sinai, and returned with the Scripture after 40 days and 40 nights.

It’s a special number. In today’s hyperconnected world, where time is measured in nanoseconds and ideas are measured in tweets, 40 days and 40 nights are an eternity.

But that’s how God measures time. In eternity.

And think about what we must look like to God… what our lives and worries must appear to be in the vastness of time.

A mere flicker of light… a momentary burst of energy and then… we’re gone.

If we use that moment for good… if we use that moment to bring beauty into this world… to raise up truth… to do acts of charity…

Maybe God will take notice.

Maybe God will gaze on our brief moment on this planet, and say: “This one, this life… is a good one. This was worth the effort.”

That’s what these next 40 days and 40 nights are about.

Making sure that we are worth the effort of our creation.

That we DO something, every day and every night, to justify our time on this planet.

We can have confidence that we will be noticed. We can be sure that our work will endure.

We have what Martin Luther King called “cosmic companionship.”

God is with us.

God is not indifferent. God does not look away.

He numbers every grain of sand and names every star in the sky.

Today is Yom Kippur. It is the Jewish day of atonement, the holiest day of the year.

Jews fast from sundown Tuesday to nightfall Wednesday.

They are to focus, like no other time of the year, like no other moment in their lives, on reconnecting with God.

They read from the prophet Isaiah: Rise up, rise up! The prophet says. Awake from your slumber…

The rest of the year we are asleep. On Yom Kippur, Judaism teaches us, we are finally awake!

It is a day from which we can all learn.

For today, the Jewish faith teaches us, God listens to the prayer of every man, woman and child. God draws near...

The gates of heaven are open… and we all stand before Him…just as we are. As plain as the day we were born.

Neither the wealthy… nor the powerful… nor the famous… are any better or any worse than the lowliest among us.

Some of us look forward to that moment of communion with God.

Some of us fear it.

But none of us can avoid it.

That is the message of this holiday. Yom Kippur. We are all God’s children. He knows each of us. And we must account for our actions, each one of them.

These next 40 days… they can be days of reconnection… of service… of hope… of love.

They can be days of action… of determination… of change.

Rise up, rise up!

You can fill these days with purpose.

Or let them slip away.

But the clock is ticking.

The days are falling away.

I’m asking each of you to do something great.

Pray. Serve. Love.

What happens next, we may not be able to control.

We can’t be certain what will happen next.

Or whether we can be the difference.

Remember… God is the author of our story. Only He knows how time will unfold.

But as every man who has sat here knows….

Against that mystery… against the doubt…against the fear

We need all the help we can get.

And that is why we pray.

Here, in this office… and at home… wherever we live.

Thanks for watching.

God bless you, and may God bless this Republic.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."
