Back in July, Glenn experimented with a new form of live events during his Restoring Love event at Cowboys Stadium. For the first time in his career, Glenn hosted an event accompanied by multiple musical acts, performing a spoken word speech while accompanied by composer Clyde Bawden on the piano. On Saturday night, Glenn’s keynote speech at FreePAC featured the second use of this new, experimental style of speaking as he fired up the crowd in Phoenix, AZ.

After a jam-packed afternoon of conservative speakers and performers, Glenn took the stage alongside compose Clyde Bawden and singer-songwriter Kalai.

To kick things off, Glenn laid out the truth that many people are forgetting as the election approaches: that the real change in direction needs to come from the American people.

“Politicians on both sides of the aisle believe they can make a better decision than you. And that is going to stop. Because progress was not made by politicians,” Glenn said.

Instead, progress in America comes from out of the box thinkers who put their ideas into action. Or, as Glenn put it, “people with dreams and people who do.”

“Tonight I want to talk to you about our plan to move ahead. Past all the partisian bickering, past the anger and division. It is the change most of America meant when they say hope and change. A change from Washington power to the hope in our towns, communities and neighbors. But to get to the big picture we have to start small. With you. And me. We the people. It never is the Utopian people. It is just a collection of us and what we dream and do,” he continued.

He warned that people become the people that they choose to be. If you only want fame and fortune without regards to character, that’s what will end up happening. And if enough people decide that’s what they want, the country as a whole will move that direction.

Glenn used his own life as an example. Twelve years ago he chose to fill his life with alcohol, mainly to try and escape what he had done, and failed to do, in his own life. He says that even though he decided to move down a path of sobriety, he still struggles everyday.

“I made my choice and I still have to choose between the two everyday,” he explained. “Actually I just told my son, nothing worth doing is easy. It is the sweat and the toil that makes the victory sweet.”

“It is human nature to look away from our problems. It is called denial. But if we do we will never be able to solve the big problems of the nation. Denial leads to dependency. They go hand in hand.”

Glenn said Americans now face a choice between fear and courage. Fear is what leads to dependency, mainly because it’s the easy path where someone can just make all the choices for you.

Courage, on the other, is hard. Glenn used Ronald Reagan as an example. When he told the Soviets to tear down the Berlin Wall, there was a huge outcry from other politicians in Washington. Nowadays, people paint him as this bipartisan reformer, but when he was President people opposed him all the way. It wasn’t until later that history remembers him as being right.

“When you’re working for something true, something right, something that is real, you may have to stand alone for a while,” Glenn said. “You may have to keep showing people the facts, keep rolling out the same points, keep showing people, patiently, that there is truth.”

“You have to be persistent and you have to work for what you believe. People won’t just come around to your point of view one day. You have to fight, you have to keep pushing, you have to take action every day.”

Turning attention to faith and Biblical history, Glenn said that Abraham was another person who had to have the courage to stand up for what he believed. At the time, most people were polytheistic, but Abraham believed there was only one true God. Despite the fact that he stood out as the “other” at the time, his bringing God into human history changed things for the better.

But often when people look to bring about change, Glenn explained, they get alienated.

“They did it to Abraham. They did it to Jesus. They did it to Washington. They did to Lincoln. They did it to Martin Luther King. They did it to Reagan. And they’re doing it to us,” Glenn said.

“The world wants to go in one direction: international law, easy money, 75% tax rates, redistribution, mass denial and mass dependency. And we want to go in the other direction,” he continued.

“Let’s be honest with ourselves. We’re not going to win a popularity contest in the media. We’re not going to have the entrenched power elite take us seriously. They won’t give up their power without a fight. And a fight is what they’re going to get!”

“We just need to stick to the facts. To our principles. And we’ll go from there. We’ll affirm freedom. We’ll affirm small government. We’ll affirm the constitution. We’ll affirm that every time the government borrows a dollar, it’s stealing a dollar from your grandkids. We’ll affirm that no party and no politician is bigger or more important than our principles.”

Glenn said that America has a great legacy of inventors and thinkers who changed the world, in ways big and small.

“One of America’s greatest contributions to the world was a simple theory: if you have a great idea, if you have a vision for doing something - you can change the world around you. And you will prosper beyond your wildest dreams.”

Today, however, Glenn said that greed and jealousy is tearing down people who are trying to change things. People want everything for free, no matter how hard it was to create. America has gone from a society where dreamers and builders are celebrated and honored, to one when they’re mocked and threatened and taxed.

Glenn said that this election is a chance for Americans to say “enough”, and to turn the tide back in favor of individual opportunity - opportunity for success and for failure.

“We never backed down from a challenge, and we never led from behind. We never apologized to the world. We never abandoned freedom of speech. We never gave up our pursuit of mankind’s dreams of traveling through the heavens. We never had a President go on a talk show rather than meet with other world leaders. We never had anything but a AAA-grade rating on our debt. We never ran trillion dollar deficits,” he said.

“Until now.”

Glenn said that Americans need to go back to being pioneers and explorers, not a country where our best days of leading on a global scale. He encouraged Americans to begin a new chapter of dreaming and doing and pioneering the next big idea.

“We can afford to explore. We can dare to dream. We just have to restore our faith in ourselves! We just have to make the right choices! And encourage the free market to step in and step up. And those dreamers, engineers, scientists, and entreprenuers that take that risk – some will fail and some will not. Some will lose everything, and others will get rich beyond their wildest dreams. But celebrate, that’s America. Let the best man win. And let their failure be the seeds of the next great success. Failure is a right we must fight for as well.”

“9/11 proved to us who we are. We're Americans, we don’t run from burning buildings – we run into them. We don’t cower and remain seated, we join arms and we do our best, whether it is on the ground of Pakistan, the polling booths surrounded by labor unions and Black Panthers or the aisle of an airplane flying over Shanksville. We’re American and we move forward.”

“A weak economy, a weak dollar, an empty cupboard, and enemies around the world. Those aren’t problems to Americans that is the kind of to-do list we take care of before lunch. And after lunch how about you say we cure cancer?”

Glenn said that if you weren’t ready to take on the problems facing America, no matter how hard it is, then you need to “get out of the way.”

“The sky is still wide open and there is no telling what waits just over the horizon for those who dare to dream and do. Let us behave like men who are determined to be free,” he said.

“We don't need yard signs or polls or dinners with movie stars. We will do this shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand and see it through to the end. Lift up, teach, build and really live. We’ll get our hands dirty. Our faces will be covered with sweat and tears. Our hands will get scarred and we’ll have some mighty callouses,” he continued.

“But at the end of the day, we’ll hold up our arms and say: “These are the hands of free men!” “These are the hands of Americans!” And these are the hands that will rebuild the world!”

“This is your moment. This is America’s moment! This is the moment america gets off the mat and comes roaring back. It is time to deliver the knock out punch to the worlds bullies and set man free once again. God bless and long live the American Republic,” Glenn finished to a standing ovation.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
