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.

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
