Glenn: Live like people determined to be free

Glenn talks about the time frame in which things will be happening now that Obama has won re-election. The tough times will hit more quickly than they would have if the election went the other way - so how do you prepare? Look at things differently -- and behave like people determined to be free.

"So I saw a post online from somebody who kind of made sense there for a while, John Michael Greer. He's a historian and conservationist. So, you know, only about half of it you're going to ‑‑ he believes, I'm sure he believes in the electronic winter tree. But he says we have to come in terms of the fact that we don't have limitless energy and we don't have limitless resources and we don't have limitless time. Now he's talking in the conservation way. I'm not. I think you can read this, take it out of the conservation idea and look at this as our life. We don't have limitless energy. You have limitless energy? Because I don't. We don't have limitless resources."

"So now what do we do? If we recognize those things, we have to be somebody who, as George Washington was followed by Anthony Wayne and they won at Stony Point, Anthony Wayne wrote a letter to him. He had a bullet in his head and he had been shot during the operation and he said to George Washington, he said first I've got to write this letter to Washington and then you can take the bullet out of my head. He said, "Your men and officers behaved like men determined to be free." The only way you behave like people that are determined to be free ‑‑ and I'm not sure I even understand what that truly means, but write that down. Put that in front of you: Behave like someone who is determined to be free. That will change your life. I have a feeling that is a life‑changing phrase. You don't ‑‑ you don't fritter your time away. But we need to do that as a group or there will only be 10% of those who believe in the Constitution and we will be the absolute outer fringe. They're trying to make us feel that way."

Glenn pointed out that in the critical swing states there was only a 407,000 vote margin between Obama and Romney.

"407,000 votes. Let's make sure we keep this into perspective. They're going to try to teach you that this was a mandate. 407,000 votes. That's not a mandate. That's not one side being dead. That is a well contested battle. And our side, a lot of them didn't stand up. Their side, they got all the new people out. They got all the people out that they have been going for. We didn't. We didn't. Now how's that possible? We had fewer people vote this time because we are not behaving like people determined to be free. And so those of us who are awake, those of us who are doing the work, we need to realize that things are not going in our direction with the media and with education, and we have to make changes, now."

"Things are not going in our direction. With the media. With education so we need to make changes now. Things are not going our way in Washington and we need to make changes now. This blogger writes:

If you’ve ever seen a fifty-year-old man trying to pretend that he’s seventeen, it’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing to everybody and it rarely ends well. That’s what America is right now. It’s two hundred something years old. It’s not an adolescent anymore. It needs to ditch the bright red car, stop trying to pick up teenage chicks, stop the binge drinking, and actually deal with the fact that there’s only so many years left. You need to do something useful with that time and not go around with everybody else – you know, China and Europe -- just rolling their eyes and trying to pretend that they don’t notice how we’ve combed our hair forward over our bald spot.

We are not in our mid life crisis. We are well into our autumn years. And we're about to head into winter. Now whether we see green shoots or not and spring crops up is really only up to us."

"I've talked to several people this weekend. I did two fundraisers in the last four days for Israel. I did one at Dallas Cowboys stadium on Thursday, and yesterday I did one in Houston. I was raising money in Houston for a hospital in Israel, and when I was over in Israel, I said that I would raise money for them because it was a children's hospital and they wanted to build a ‑‑ it's a regular hospital, but they wanted to build a children's hospital and they serve everybody, Christians, Jews, Muslims, everybody. And as a father of a child with special needs, I thought it was really worthwhile. But they've changed. They are no longer trying to build a children's hospital. They believe they need to build an underground hospital, one that will withstand bombings. They're right. The world is changing quickly. Quickly."

"So what do we do? How do we prepare? Well, first live like someone determined to be free. And that means cut yourself some slack from time to time because there's a lot of work to do and not everybody's doing it. We have to, and we will, but, you know, More‑On Trivia was Friday. Lots of laughs. I went to Skyfall this weekend. Great break. Go do something. Go enjoy. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself. Life is not just a dirge. It's not. But focus when you have to."

"This blog, again he was going on, you know, 'What can we do because, you know, things aren't sustainable because the UN can't take over fast enough.'But he actually had some good things in it. Get ahead of it. Get yourself some space. Work through the learning curve. Pick up a skill that you're going to need. Do it now, so by the time that it's necessary, you're comfortable with it and you know what you're doing. If you've already insulated your house, you may have a solar hot water system in place if you can afford one. You've torn up some of the grass in your back and turned it into a vegetable garden so you can stretch it out for staples. Know how to cook from scratch so you're not dependent on the vast corporate structure. Maybe you started developing some tradeable skills. Maybe a little basement workshop where you're doing something you can barter with your friends. Maybe you should brew some beer in the basement."

"The reason why I bring this up is I just want you to look at things differently. Look at the world differently and realize that our time frame has been shortened, I believe, but it will all work out to be for the best and for the best of the country if we behave like people determined to be free."

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
